My Christmas Wishlist 2023

So as an adult, I feel super silly thinking of Christmas gifts. Truthfully it was really tough this year because I’m a giver than a taker. But I know all the people who love me so much that they want to make me really happy like having things to give me so I thought of a few things. 

And for me, I’ll look at is as a vision board and because I really believe that if I write it down for the world to see, the universe will conspire to give me the things that I want. Maybe it will give you ideas, too if you can’t think of anything!

1. Japanese Suamei
Plants is always and forever the perfect present for me. Proud plant parents tend to enjoy adding new plants to their collection, and though I have Japanese Suamei already, I still want another one in our entryway. (BUY HERE)

2. Vinyl Records
Lately I have been really wishing I had more vinyl records, especially my favorite Jim Croce, Michael Jackson and The Beach Boys, but they are all so expensive. I certainly don’t want to to drop 4 bills on a record, regardless of how much I want it. But if you're generous enough to give me one of this, I would be most grateful.

3. Bohemian Blanket
I am a big fan of the bohemian style when it comes to interior decor and a bohemian blanket is a great way to adds bohemian charm and texture to our couch or the edge of my bed. The best part about bohemian blankets is that they come in so many different colors and patterns... and I love that everything can be applied with a neutral room.

4. Portable Projector
Having a projector becomes imperative if I plan on throwing a memorable party or memorable movie nights for friends and family on our rooftop. So, I’ve been thinking about getting a portable projector and our current projector is giving me headache to set up. Plus I’m really tired of seeing all of the wires that clash with the aesthetics of my indoor design.

5. Electric Milk Frother
Our handheld milk frother works fine but I want one with more capabilities and very functional that allows me to get that enticing foam found on barista-made smooth hot chocolate to foamy matcha but from my own kitchen.

6. Scented Candle
I've always had a thing for scented candles because having a nice scent in a room brings me joy and I'm all about anything that brings me joy - sometimes, it's the smallest of things that can brighten your day, and in my case, it's a nice candle. They're one of my favourite gifts to receive especially the citrus, woody, earthy and fresh scent.

7. Dog Bag Carrier
To allow my dog(s) to travel in style. Nuff said!

So there you have it, my Christmas wish list! =) Let me know what is on your Christmas wish list! Thank you so much for stopping by.

The Top 5 Favorite Dazzle Me Products that You Should Own

Dazzle Me was a generation beauty brand founded in July 2020 with the expert touch of L.A.’s beauty authority and since its inception; this brand that has gained nationwide attention these past few years on Tiktok and Instagram. The Generation Dazzle Me Collection became an instant hit with the locals and definitely has their place in every GenZ’s make up bag (even from other age groups), as it is affordable and consists of various beauty products that a beauty enthusiast might need.

Personally, I’m a fan, not because they are funky and handy makeups but because on the whole, the products are good quality for the affordable price point that is also 100% cruelty-free, non-toxic and dermatology tested.

If you've never tried it for yourself, here's the 5 Generation Dazzle Me Collection products that you should on. I told you you’d get hooked as well!
However, before jumping straight into the list, I want to make a little disclaimer. With this post, I am by no means saying that these five are the only makeup products that are worth the money when it comes to Revolution; these are merely the ones I think many people would appreciate and I, personally, would repurchase again. This doesn’t mean the absence of a product makes it bad, and doesn’t even mean I did not like it.
Ink-Licious Liptint
When I heard about this Ink-Licious Liptint I immediately wanted to snag one for myself since it claims to be transfer-proof and promise to last for a whopping 12(!) hours, I was intrigued — and also pretty skeptical. On my first try, I immediately fell in love with it. Actually, I have been using this lip stain on and off for weeks now, and no amount of rubbing, drinking, or eating made this color budge. 


What surprise me also is how lightweight these ones are. It really doesn’t feel like there’s anything on your lips at all. I’m also very impressed by how hydrating they are. I usually can’t wear matte lip tints or even lipsticks because they’re way to drying and leave my lips cracked at the end of the day, but I’ve never had this issue once with this tint. My lips feel moisturized throughout the whole day -- thanks to the hyaluronic acid in the formula. Glad that I found this product. Definitely will continue using it and now I am going to try out another shade. 

It comes from 4 tempting colors; (1) Touchdown (2) Smiley (3) Swipe Up (4) Oran-gee. I swear, every shade is gorgeous.

Muse Pressed Foundation
Even if your skin is practically perfect, you will occasionally need a little touch up to make you look that little bit better. That’s why I am extremely picky when it comes to pressed foundation, because instead of it'll helps me to conceals the imperfections of my face, many end up looking heavy or cakey, emphasize pores or even end up breaking me out. 


But the Dazzle Me Muse Pressed Foundation look perfectly fine on my skin. This foundation has got to be the most affordable yet very effective on covering skin blemishes I have ever tried. It’s very lightweight and with a long-wear formula; it will remain on the skin for up to 12 hours without requiring touch-ups. This is the perfect choice for those of you looking for a filter-like natural skin look with a matte finish. This foundation is specially formulated for oily-type skin because it is resistant to sweat and water. And... it lets your skin breathe and also protects it from the sun with an SPF 25 PA+++. Amazing, right?

Cosmic Eyes Eyeshadow Palette
This gorgeous eyeshadow is the perfect companion for any occasion. Whether you’re heading to a funky night out, glam party or just want to look that little bit extra, you will not be disappointed with Dazzle Me Cosmic Eyes Eyeshadow Palette.


This eye palette is a revolutionary 9-pan eyeshadow palette that helps you create an array of glam looks effortlessly, ranging all the way from the dazzling Mystic shade to the intriguing Galactic shade that can give you a futuristic vibes. It’s also delivers minimal fallout with maximum sparkle weather you want a matte, shimmery or glittery look. It is super pigmented in one swipe and I like the particles are really small so they still look natural when put on.

The packaging is cute acrylic where you can see the shades immediately. You’ll never want another eyeshadow palette in your makeup bag once you’ve experienced this beauty. This is one of the best Dazzle me products that you should keep in your purse at all times. They have 2 available palettes: 01 Milky Way and 02 Venus Aura.

Eyeshadow: 02 Venus Aura in Celestial Shade
Cosmic Eyes Eyeshadow Palette is a Robinsons Department Store exclusive product.

Get a Grip! Makeup Setting Spray
For makeup that lasts from day to night, looks no further than this Get a Grip! Makeup Setting Spray. I discovered this two weeks ago and have never stopped using it. It literally makes my makeup last for the whole day. I recently tested it for 12 hours and when I reached home, my makeup was still on and didn’t look cakey or faded. 


The mist will not upset any product on your face; just provide a natural veil like shield that lasts all day long. It is enriched with rose water for rich refreshment and Trehalose for a splash of hydration and boosts antioxidant level. It helps bring a youthful into your look and aid towards the prevention of natural ageing.

Even if you don’t wear a lot of makeup, I would recommend this product to other beauty lovers because of how refreshed and hydrated I feel after a few quick spritzes. 

Here's the 3 steps to flawless makeup: (1) Shake the bottle gently before use (2) Just hold the spray with a distance 15-20 cm from the face, close your eyes and spray evenly (3) Wait 30-60 until the product sets on the skin. 

Attack on Sun! Sunscreen 
I’ve been working on my sunscreen game for the past few years and I’m by no means an expert with chemical and physical sunscreens. Trust me, I still get confused. But I do know what I like with a sunscreen... first, if it’s quick absorbing and weightless. Second, no white cast, and third, if it has a higher SPF.


Actually, I didn’t even know the meaning behind the SPF in sunscreen but I know, the higher the better. If you apply a sunscreen with SPF50, it means it will take times longer for your skin to burn compared to not wearing any sunscreen at all. UVA rays also contribute to skin damage and aging. To ensure broad-spectrum coverage protection, it is advisable to use sunscreen that offers UVA protection. In all honesty, I was pleasantly surprised because I can get everything I need in a sunscreen from Dazzle Me Attack on Sun! Sunscreen SPF50 PA++++. Yes, it has SPF50 in a very affordable price. That’s why I recommend this product. I’m sure… you’ll feel good under the sun.

A Guide to Customized Corporate Gifting

In today's competitive business world, companies must go the extra mile to build solid relationships with their clients and stakeholders. One effective way to achieve this is through the practice of corporate gifting. By customizing these gifts, businesses can enhance their brand image and leave a lasting impression on their recipients.

In this article, we will explore the importance of corporate gifting, steps to customize gifts, navigating gifting etiquette, budgeting considerations, and evaluating the impact of your gifting strategy.

Understanding the Importance of Corporate Gifting
Building Relationships Through Gifts
Regarding corporate gifting, the underlying objective is to establish and nurture strong relationships with your clients, employees, and other business partners. You can create a sense of loyalty and trust by showing your appreciation through thoughtful gifts. Gifts remind you of your commitment to the recipients, strengthening your business bonds.

Imagine a client receiving a beautifully packaged gift from your company. As they unwrap it, they are greeted with a personalized note expressing gratitude for their continued support. This simple act of kindness makes them feel valued and deepens their connection with your brand. It creates a lasting impression that goes beyond the transactional nature of business.

Enhancing Brand Image with Custom Gifts
Your corporate gifts can serve as a powerful marketing tool. Customizing gifts with your company's logo or tagline increases brand visibility and helps create a positive brand image. When recipients receive a gift that reflects your brand's values and personality, it reinforces their perception of your business as professional and attentive to detail.

Moreover, custom gifts can also act as conversation starters. When clients or employees showcase their personalized gifts, it sparks curiosity and interest among others. This can lead to valuable word-of-mouth marketing as people inquire about the origin of the gift and the positive experiences associated with your brand.

Viviamo Concepts offers an array of meticulously crafted custom corporate giveaways that embody the essence of a brand. By choosing Viviamo Concepts for your corporate gifting needs, you aren't just offering gifts; you're presenting a piece of your brand's story. Whether it's a client, a partner, or an employee, each bespoke gift speaks volumes about your commitment to quality and meaningful engagement. Elevate your brand's impact with Viviamo Concepts, the trailblazer in custom corporate giveaways in the Philippines, and etch your brand into the hearts and minds of those who matter.

Steps to Customize Corporate Gifts
When it comes to corporate gifting, customization is critical. It's not just about giving any gift; it's about giving the right gift. By taking the time to personalize your gifts, you can create a lasting impression on your recipients. Let's dive into the steps involved in customizing corporate gifts.

Identifying Your Gift Recipients
The first step in customizing corporate gifts is to consider the preferences and needs of your gift recipients. It's essential to go beyond surface-level knowledge and truly understand their interests, hobbies, and preferences. Are they coffee enthusiasts? Do they enjoy outdoor activities? By tailoring the gifts to their tastes, you demonstrate a genuine interest in their well-being, making the gift more meaningful and memorable.

Selecting Appropriate Gifts
Once you have identified your recipients, selecting gifts that align with their interests and preferences is crucial. Consider their profession, lifestyle, and any known personal preferences. Avoid generic gifts and aim for items that are both practical and unique. This shows that you have put thought into the gift selection, increasing the likelihood of it being well-received.

Adding Personal Touches to Your Gifts
Customization goes beyond simply adding a logo or tagline to a gift. While branding is important, it's equally essential to add personal touches. Consider adding a handwritten note or personalized message to show appreciation and acknowledge the individual recipient. This small gesture can make a significant impact and leave a lasting impression. Personal touches demonstrate that you value the relationship and go the extra mile to make the gift special.

Furthermore, you can also consider customizing the packaging of the gift. A beautifully wrapped gift with attention to detail can elevate the overall gifting experience. These small details can make a big difference, whether it's a custom gift box or a personalized ribbon.

Another way to add a personal touch is by incorporating the recipient's name or initials into the gift. This can be done through engraving, embroidery, or even custom-made items. By adding this level of personalization, you show that you have gone above and beyond to create a unique gift tailored specifically to them.

Lastly, consider the timing of your gift. Is there a special occasion or milestone that you can celebrate? By aligning your gift with a significant event in the recipient's life, you make it even more meaningful and memorable.

Navigating Corporate Gifting Etiquette
Timing Your Corporate Gifts
When it comes to corporate gifting, timing is crucial. Consider the appropriate occasions, such as holidays or milestones. Be mindful of the cultural norms and traditions of your recipients. Sending gifts at the right time shows thoughtfulness and consideration, reinforcing the positive impression of your business.

Respecting Cultural Differences in Gifting
Businesses should be aware of cultural differences when engaging in corporate gifting. What is acceptable in one country may be considered inappropriate or offensive in another. Take the time to research and understand your recipients' gifting customs and traditions to ensure your gifts are well-received and appropriate.

Budgeting for Corporate Gifts
Determining Your Gifting Budget
Before embarking on your corporate gifting journey, it is essential to establish a clear budget. Consider the number of recipients and the level of customization needed. Setting a budget helps you stay financially responsible while delivering meaningful gifts that align with your objectives.

Getting the Most Value for Your Money
While budgeting is essential, focusing on getting the most value for your money is equally important. Look for opportunities to partner with suppliers offering competitive prices without compromising quality. Consider bulk purchasing or bundling gifts to optimize your budget and ensure your gifts make a lasting impact.

Evaluating the Impact of Your Corporate Gifting Strategy
Measuring Recipient Satisfaction
To assess your gifting strategy's effectiveness, gathering feedback from your recipients is crucial. Consider conducting surveys or seeking direct feedback to gauge their satisfaction levels. This will help you refine your future gifting efforts and ensure you continue delivering meaningful experiences.

Assessing the Return on Investment
Beyond recipient satisfaction, evaluating the return on investment (ROI) of your corporate gifting strategy is crucial. Assess how the gifts have contributed to building and strengthening relationships, enhancing brand image, and ultimately driving business outcomes. Analyze the impact on client retention, employee morale, and overall business growth.

Customized corporate gifting is a powerful tool that can have a lasting impact on your business relationships. By understanding the importance of corporate gifting, following the steps to customize your gifts, navigating gifting etiquette, and evaluating the impact of your gifting strategy, you can build strong relationships, enhance your brand image, and drive business success.

Sake 101: Everything You Need To Know

The world of sake is wide and captivating. It is Japan’s national drink and has different tasting notes, profiles, types, and processes of brewing. Sake is not widely popular or known in the Philippines. That’s why many Filipinos are not familiar with it and don’t know how to enjoy it. But considering its increasing popularity and availability worldwide, sake is definitely worth knowing and understanding. Here’s everything you must know about sake.

What Is Sake?

Sake is a popular Japanese alcoholic beverage. In Japanese, sake is called nihonshu (日本酒) and is created from fermented rice. This is to help differentiate this type of alcoholic drink from other alcohols because “sake” is a term used to describe alcohol in general.

There are four main ingredients in making sake: clean water, quality rice, yeast, and koji (a mold). You can’t use any type of rice to make sake. To make delicious sake, a special type of rice called sakamai is used. All four ingredients are combined, fermented, and processed.

Each brewer has their own way of carefully distributing koji over the rice. Also, the type of yeast, water quality, and brewing process are unique to every sake brewery. As a result, the tasting notes, profiles, and flavors of sake are different for every brewery.

Different Types Of Sake
Sake, often referred to as Japanese rice wine, is a unique alcoholic beverage that showcases the richness and intricacies of Japanese culture. Its types vary widely based on factors such as brewing process, ingredients, and aging. 

Rice Polish Ratio
To make sake, rice grains are polished to remove their outer layers which makes the end product less palatable and desirable. In general, the more polished the rice grains are the better the flavors and the higher their price tags will be. Premium sake should have at least 30% RPR while high-end ones have higher.

Ginjo (吟醸): At least 40% RPR with a slightly fruity taste and very rich profile.
Daiginjo (大吟醸): At least 50% RPR with a light and fruity flavor and very rich character.

Addition Of Brewer’s Alcohol
The alcohol content in sake is produced by the fermentation process which is costly and time-consuming. That’s why many brewers add bigger amounts of alcohol to decrease the fermentation process and produce sake faster. But for premium sake, they pride themselves in containing no added alcohol or adding smaller amounts, just to add subtle flavors and taste notes.

Junmai (純米): Contains zero added alcohol and has different flavors.
Honjozo (本醸造): 70% RPR with a small amount of alcohol to improve the flavor or add an earthy taste.

Special Types Of Sake
There are special types of sake produced which are created by adding or omitting various steps in processing. Here are the most common ones:

Nigorizake: Also called cloudy sake, it has a cloudy color and sweet to tart flavors.
Sparkling Sake: To create the bubbles, sake is bottled before the fermentation process.
Namazake: Also called raw sake, it has a fresher flavor. However, namazake should be refrigerated and consumed quickly.
Amazake: Sweet, thick, and low or non-alcoholic beverage.
Koshu: Also called old sake, it’s aged in barrels or bottles to add unique flavors and profiles. Depending on how long the aging process is, it can have stronger, woody, or earthy flavors with a dark, honeyed color.
Jizake: Typically produced by small, independent brewers.

While sake might be the pride of Japan, you don't have to travel miles to get your hands on premium alcoholic beverages. If you're in the mood for a different kind of brew or want to explore other international flavors, you can always buy beer online in the Philippines at Thirst: Philippine's First Online Liquor Marketplace. From the crispness of a local lager to the smoothness of imported ale, Thirst offers a wide selection to quench your global palate.

How To Enjoy Sake
Unlike common alcoholic drinks in the Philippines which are served cold or with ice, sake can be enjoyed warm, hot, chilled, or at room temperature. Personal preference, weather conditions, and the season will affect how sake is enjoyed.

In general, premium sake is best enjoyed at room temperature or chilled. An example of this is the expensive daiginjo and ginjo. While less flavorful and cheaper ones can be served warm and hot. Warm and hot sake is perfect for cold weather and winter.

When drinking sake in groups, it’s customary to serve each other and not just yourself. This is very different from the Filipino culture where you serve alcohol to yourself unless your friends are skipping their turn and trying to look like they’re drinking. Also, when drinking sake, you don’t chug the whole cup. You take a sip and enjoy the experience, taste, and profile of the sake.

Best Food Pairing For Sake

Personal preferences will affect the best food pairing for sake. But in general, light and sweet sake is perfect with shrimp, fish, and other lightly fried food. Light and dry sake go well with sushi, sashimi, and light dishes. But if you’re serving hearty meat dishes, pair them with rich and dry sake. And for rich and sweet sake, pair them with protein-rich or umami ingredients such as cheese or soy-based dishes.


Basically, light sake goes well with lightly-flavored dishes. On the other hand, hearty and savory foods and dishes pair well with rich and bold sake.

If you still haven’t tried drinking sake, it’s now time to expand your palate and try something new. Sake is delicious, flavorful, and has a unique taste. It pairs well with different Filipino food, not just Japanese food. The key to a desirable sake-drinking experience is finding the right sake that fits your taste buds.
