Shop For Your Fave Home, Beauty, and Kitchen Essentials at Up To 70% Off!

Ever since the pandemic started, I’ve only gone to the grocery twice. Looking back, I’m not sure how I managed to survive the months-long quarantine living on my own, but I’ve relied on produce stands in the village, food delivery, and online sellers to sustain myself. For everything else, there’s online shopping.

10 Gifts Perfect During the GCQ (and How to Socially Distance While Buying)

Birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions are still pushing through even with the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a good thing that the general quarantine (GCQ) allowed some stores to open, which makes buying gifts a little bit easier. Of course, I still believe in only going out for the essentials, so it’s a good idea to make this a pit stop the next time you go out for groceries.

Here are some gift ideas that are helpful during the GCQ:

Get 50% Off When You Shop at Avon This January!

I don’t wear makeup but I understand how empowering it can feel. The transformative power of putting on something that can highlight your features is something I experience when I wear something nice. When you look your best, you feel like you can face anything in this world. For me, it’s good clothes. For some women, it’s makeup.

The New York Times also reported on a study that revealed that women feel more confident with makeup and that they are perceived as likable, competent, and attractive with it. Of course, personality, actual competence, and inner beauty play a more important role, but the power of makeup is undeniable.

My Top Picks at Daiso’s New Store in U.P. Town Center

Daiso is that one store where I come in looking for one item and end up leaving with a bagful of stuff I didn’t know I needed. I go to Daiso a lot because it’s so therapeutic and I discover so many unique items. Who knew I would need a cactus candle (More on this later)?

Recently, Daiso opened its 60th store in the Philippines, setting roots in U.P. Town Center in Quezon City. The new concept store is redesigned, and takes its inspiration from stores in Japan. Here, the products are front and center, tastefully arranged in a clean, bright, and airy environment.

Daiso is known for selling quality products from Japan starting at P88. The items are categorized by Fashion, Arts and Crafts, Food and Beverages, and Home. In fact, there are 10,000 estimated items in each store, with new additions each month!

Robinsons and DTI to Support Local Products in Go Lokal!

I absolutely love local products. Many of them are made with quality in mind, and yet are still affordable because they don’t need to spend on importing and marketing. However, it can be a hassle to buy because not many are distributed in major department stores or shops. You have to go to artisan fairs or specialty stores (many of which are in the north) to buy them.

Luckily, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has partnered with retail stores for Go Lokal!, a partnership that promotes products made by micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). Their first partner is Robinsons Department Store, and the first concept store is open now in Robinsons Place Manila!
