Baeby Baste and The Concio Sisters: New Endorsers of BABY BENCH

Local retail giant BENCH launched last Saturday its new endorsers for one of its most recognizable sub-brands, BABY BENCH at the Ayala Glorietta Activity Center Palm Drive via a children’s party-themed event. The ever charming Baeby Baste of GMA 7's noontime show 'Eat Bulaga' together with Charo Santos-Concio's pretty granddaughters, Julia and Talia Concio, were introduced as models for the above mentioned product line meant for the young and the young at heart.

Baeby Baste performed a short medley of modern songs including Closer by The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey. He was oozing with cuteness so the crowd was very much in awe.

Enter The Concio Sisters who looked equally adorable in their tutu outfit. They also rendered a song number for the crowd to enjoy.

I supposed their lovely grandma who is one of the most influential women in Philippine television, seen here seated beside BENCH founder and CEO Ben Chan, was very proud. Indeed, the Concio Sisters is a duo to watch out for.

At the end of the launch, Sir Ben Chan walked the runway together with the 3 child stars as colorful confetti started pouring.

Both Baeby Baste and The Concio Sisters received huge teddy bears as token.

Some of BABY BENCH Cologne variants clockwise: Cotton Candy (green fruity), Gummy Bear (fruity floral), Jelly Bean (floral), Bubble Gum (citrus floral), Lemon Drop (citrus) and Popsicle (citrus fougere). Not in picture: Ice Mint (powdery floral).

Specially formulated for delicate skin, these clinically and dermatologically tested colognes have a non-irritating formula that keeps skin smooth and smelling clean and fresh all day. Baby Bench cologne comes in 50mL (P35.00), 100 mL (P55.00), 200 mL (P87.00), and 500 mL (P205.00) variants. Grab a bottle at the Bench store nearest you today!

Back to the Gym

Hello 2017! First blog entry of the year, here we go. I started posting about my fitness journey in Instagram late last year as I went back to working out mid November, now I want to blog about it so I can track my progress better. Looking at my old photos and reading an old entry on fitness made me realize that I have been sporting a flabby tummy for a long time. Aahh.. I want to scold my old myself 'cause I also discovered that I was pretty much okay with it. I gave up after losing just an inch or two off my waist. Can you believe how lazy of me to do that? I boasted my workout routine even I didn't achieve a very good result doing it. Haha. Anyway, I just reviewed my exercises and found out that I am still doing the same thing plus more intense training like circuit, core, HIIT, etc.

This is me in December. I started losing weight after some diet changes in June, slowly dropped my weight from 52 kilos to 47 until November.

This photo was taken like a day before Christmas. I dragged myself to the gym early in the morning while my kids were still sleeping.

This is me and a couple of gym buddies. It is fun to meet new people and be friends with them. We get to workout together and share fitness goals.

This photo is after a hip-hop class on a Saturday. I normally workout Monday to Fridays only. This one was an exception 'cause I wanted to try the hip-hop class.

This is our cardio zumba class with Zin Blade. I love this class 'cause I get to sweat a lot. I regularly attend zumba classes every Monday and Friday night.

I signed up for a year contract with my current gym. I am trying to maximize my membership by joining as much classes that I can. I love the classes because I earn friend through them and get to workout with ease and so much fun. On my next blog entry, I am gonna be sharing ,my fitness goals for this year and some transformation photos.

PS. Sorry for the quality of photos. They are taken using my mobile phone camera.
