Healthy Human Water Bottles

We love our Healthy Human water bottles. There is no need to add ice cubes in it because the water is still cold after 8 hours has passed. It is sturdy and the matte finish is good to avoid little scratches. It has a soft cloth cover for each but I bought another cover with handle that can be used as shoulder strap from the Japan thrift stores.

We got the 21oz insulated stainless steel water bottles.

World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines National Youth Ambassador Janine Gutierrez is a passionate advocate of proper waste management and garbage disposal. She graced the on-ground fundraiser for a day for WWF-Philippines’ “Fundraising Hour” activity at the Lucky Chinatown Mall in Manila.

The fundraising is one event for this WWF-Philippines ambassador to spread awareness on pressing environmental issues and introduce the Individual Donor Program or IDP.

Janine, as one of the newest celebrity ambassadors of WWF-Philippines has supported activities like Earth Hour, Sustainable Food, Sustainable Future Fundraising Dinner, Partners’ Night 2017 and a site visit to Dobson, Sorsogon.

Janine said that “I am so glad that I am doing a lot more now to protect our environment. Our activities at WWF-Philippines encourages everyone, especially the youth, to take an active role in protecting and preserving our planet because together we can make everything possible.”

 

Luckily Chinatown is a perfect venue for the fundraising event because it has partnered up with WWF-Philippines for its Panda-themed holidays. “Adopt-a-Panda” campaign allows shoppers to take home a panda stuffed toy, a WWF pin, and an official adoption certificate for Php500.00. All proceeds will go to WWF-Philippines’ conservation programs. The “Adopt-a-Panda” campaign runs till December 31, 2017.

Contributions to the WWF-Philippines will help the campaigns and projects in the conservation of the natural habitats, resources and ecosystems in the country as it carries out its mission to build a future where Filipinos live in harmony with nature.

Delightful-E Simple to Save Contest by Electrolux

Electrolux will launch Delightful-E Simple to Save contest  that will run from August 11 – September 15, 2014

Delightful-E Simple to Save

Electrolux understands that every peso and second counts,” said Andrea Pionilla, Marketing Manager of Electrolux Philippines. “This is the reason behind Delightful-E Simple. We want to help moms save not just money but also their precious time by making their everyday tasks delightfully simple and easy.

For every money and time well-spent and save, we feel good, right? Imagine how, with the chores we (love or dread to) do, we are able to save BOTH money and time, wouldn’t you just say “It is indeed Delightful-E Simple to Save“.

With this in mind, Electrolux Philippines Facebook Page has created a Savings Calculator app where you get help in adding up your savings. It also enables you to keep track of your laundry expenses and savings at the same time.

What more, this Savings Calculator is very easy to use. It can help you track down your weekly laundry expenses based on a few things: number of family members, average weekly load and how you wash your clothes.

After tracking your expenses, the Savings Calculator will show you how much you can save in a year when you use an Electrolux washing machine.

And what do you do with the money you saved for a year?

If you are a mom or a dad, you might think of school expenses, a weekend family getaway, utility bills and grocery items with which those savings might go to. If you are single, then perhaps you can now get that new pair of shoes you have been saving up for, a new gadget perhaps or a weeklong vacation?

Wait… didn’t I just say how much you can save when using an Electrolux Washing Machine and you say you don’t have one?

HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS:  Electrolux is giving away not just one but 4, yes FOUR!! washing machines to four very lucky people.

Here are the four easy steps on how you could be one of those four winners (claim it now!)

1. Like the Electrolux Facebook page facebook.com/thelittlewhitebook

2. Calculate your laundry savings using the Savings Calculator

3. Hit the Share button found in the result page

4. In the caption, type in what you plan to buy using your laundry savings and do not forget to include the hashtags #DelightfulE and #SimpleToSave and post it on your Facebook page.

Trees in the Parking Lot

These are the trees in the school’s parking lot where my children go to.

Enrollment for @bethanycf

If I remember it right, this tree used to have a wrap-around terrace where the children can play on. Attach to the terrace are wooden slides that they can use to get down. The playground became a parking lot. A part of the playground still stands though.

I’ve seen a few students who love to stay there. Sometimes they sing along with someone playing a guitar (and maybe an autoharp at musicians friend) or just sing acapella, which is good because they try to make a harmony among their voices.

Just remembering. My eldest used to love playing at this spot.

Homemade Body Scrub

My first time to make homemade body scrub or DIY body scrub.

Here was what I did:

Body Scrub

 

Ingredients:

Just mix together and voila! (I deliberately added the brown sugar, that light brown part, to show how it looks like)

How to use the DIY body scrub: You can use this before bathing but be sure to wet the body parts you want to use the homemade body scrub with. Gently use the scrub on your elbows, foot and even face. Wash or rinse with your usual soap or facial/body wash.

Skin will be supple and soft after you rinse the homemade body scrub off. Wash the bathroom floor just in case there is oil residue that might cause slips to the next user.

Easy peasy. If you want to use coconut oil, you can do so. You can also opt to remove the sugar.

You can also use an electronic ph meter if you want, no one is stopping you 😀
