An Afternoon at Pump Juice Bar

Last August 6, I read the results of the Pump Juice Bar Giveaway of Yuki Tansengco. It was a very generous giveaway because instead of just choosing 5 winners, they had a total of 10 and luckily, I was one of them. (Hooray!)

The winners got a pair of Pump Juice Bar Crushers Gift Certificate which we can share with a friend.

So last Friday, My husband and I decided to just hangout and use our gift certificates. We thought we will have a hard time looking for the store since we are not familiar with the place but we were wrong. The store features both green, yellow and orange colors so it is very easy to spot.

The staff were very helpful when ordering. The different flavors for crushers are Melonhead Crush, Lychee Crush and Hawaiian Crush. There are also 3 different sizes to choose from. 

Standard - Php 145, Medium -Php 135 and Kids - Php 115

While enjoying our drinks, we also ordered snacks to compliment.

But the best thing I love them is the place. It is so cozy. The chairs are comfy. And not only the provide free WIFI but they provide an ipad per table that you can use for free. 

It is one of the places that I recommend that you can simply visit and relax. 
Pump Juice Bars is located at The Hub, Greenfield District, Mandaluyong City. 

Looking forward to visit again soon. 

Don't forget to follow Pump Juice Bar - for updates and promotions. 

Once again, Thank you Yuki! for the giveaway and ofcourse, for letting me discover this wonderful place.

BDJ Box : Not your ordinary beauty box

Beauty boxes are all over the market nowadays wherein you purchase a subscription then get a 5-6 deluxe sample products that you would not know until you receive the box. However, only one beauty box had caught my attention and THIS IS NOT AN ORDINARY BEAUTY BOX. 

So, what makes a BDJ Box special? 

1. Excitement vs.Worry

Once you order the box, immediately you get the excitement of waiting for your box to arrive. You build up anticipation on what's going to be inside it. Totally, it's going to be a surprise (or at times, BDJ would be kind enough to drop clues) but then it's just going to be just pure thrill and excitement. No worries since you can trust the BDJ Box team that they will give the best for you and ofcourse, you will get your money's worth. You don't have to worry about receiving your box or getting them late because they ship out items on time and if ever accidents happen (e.g. lost shipment), Belle de Jour has a very efficient customer service team to handle your concern. 

2. Total Care Package

The BDJ Box provides you a total care package. They give a variety items. Like this one with the latest BDJ Box for the month of April.

 3. Inspiration

BDJ Box does not end giving the message "here are the samples, try it and buy more" but rather it teaches us to love, appreciate and take care of ourselves. Aside from the samples and full-size items. Every box comes with stickers to remind us and to share to others that we are beautiful not because we are thin or fair skinned but rather every one is BEAUTIFUL. 

So, get your own share of not-an-ordinary beauty box by ordering online. Visit to order.

Facebook: A Place of Treasures and Surprises

Facebook is known to be a social networking service established in February 2004. It has allowed people to connect and share information across the world real time. Users share just about anything, a picture, an idea, a ramdom quote or bulletins about themselves. It has taken a deep involvement in our personal lives that most   of us spend hours online or if not, users make sure to check important updates and notifications at least once a day. 

But Facebook is not only all about its users' personal life but it is also one of the most popular marketing tool of businesses nowadays enabling them to increase product awareness through advertisement, customer loyalty and promotions. And actually, that is what I use facebook for since I discovered that going online is not a waste of time. It offers lots of treasures and surprises. We just have to "like" the correct pages and use the right "applications" and in this way, you get a lot of freebies with just a click away.
