Head of the Family: Not Just A Provider, But A Father

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all.

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives.


Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs.

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Nutramedica Inc. introduced a revolutionary product that aims to address this problem: NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss. Being the only topical scalp lotion in the country that is made from 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients all working synergistically, it’s perfect for all the heads of the family out there, be they biological or not.

Still have no idea on what to give him on his big day? Well, NOVUHAIR might not be the most expensive gift to impress him, but the most valuable present he could ever have. This nature’s answer to hair loss provides him the chance to be ahead already in preventing his “crowning glory” from receding in the near future.

Beyond Innovations Warehouse Sale: Discounts Up To 70% Off

As a creative, my work requires me to be inspired regardless if I'm into the project I'm dealing with or not. Creative blocks sucks. How do I stay motivated? For me, I'm more productive when I'm listening to my favorite set of songs on Spotify or listen to the radio.

Whether you prefer working out to pop music or singing your hearts out to classical music in the shower. Music is an essential part of life.

One of my pet peeves = low quality earphones. I'd hate to admit it but the "thrifty" side of me would prefer buying an affordable set of entry-level earphones every year as opposed to splurging on an expensive high quality one that would probably last way way longer. Not a practical choice, but what's a cheapskate like me to do?


Now here's a great news for all you audiophiles out there. Beyond Innovations will be having its Warehouse sale featuring brands such as JBL, Harman Kardon, AKG and Booq among others. 
Take note: the sale will feature discounts of up to 70% off!

Want dibs on the best pieces? Get your wallets ready as The Warehouse Sale will be happening on July 1-2, 2017 at the Circulo Verde Multi Purpose Hall, Bagumbayan, Quezon City. Scheduled time will be 11 am to 6 pm for Saturday and 9 am to 6 pm for Sunday.

Sounds good, right? Hope to see you there!!!

Hair Diaries: Summer Hair Care Tips by Novuhair

It is totally undeniable that going to the beach and mountain climbing are some of the popular activities for most people's itinerary specially this summer. It can't be helped, since the Philippines has a lot of beautiful tourist destinations to offer.

As much as we'd like to enjoy or try everything under the sun... did you know that spending extended hours exposed to the sun can pose serious danger to your hair and scalp? Yes, the same UV rays that brings damage to your skin without proper protection can equally hurt your hair and scalp.


2 months ago, I had my hair bleached twice in one sitting to achieve a color level 10. On top of that, a month after that, I had it dyed grey. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. But just as I've expected, bleached hair takes a lot of work to maintain. 


Trust me, the texture of your hair will never be as the same as it is. It's more prone to breakage and damage, that's why I made my sweet time to do a bit of research on how to manage treated hair properly.

Foodtrip Finds: Pickup Sticks opens at Pioneer Centre!

When it comes to Filipino food, one of the things that comes to mind is how Filipinos are capable of making almost everything taste great! We're very practical and resourceful. You name it, almost every part we can manage to create a great dish out of it.


One of my favorite grilled street food is chicken and pork isaw (intestines). To others, the idea of eating street food isn't as enticing since you don't even know where it came from or if it's safe to begin with. I even remembered sneaking out with my cousin at night just to eat some of those since she's not allowed to eat street foods by her parents.

I can't blame her though, who couldn't resist those chewy flamed grilled cholesterol induced goodness? Right?
