Feeling Healthier and #BeYOUtiful with HyC 150

HyC 150

After having tried a handful of skin care supplements, I have come to experience for myself the difference of the collagen drink HyC 150. The Hyaluron, Collagen, and Ubiquinol combination that other collagen supplements don’t have,  might just be the winning combination. I have long put away the belief that supplements like this has everything to do with vanity. This, after experiencing the incredible relief from suffering from dry eyes for months on end, after taking HyC 150 for a week. Now before I get ahead of myself, what is the big deal about collagen anyway?

What’s the big deal about Collagen?

As we age, the amount of collagen that our body produces is diminished. From producing a youthful type of collagen, our bodies transition to producing an older type of collagen. Collagen has a lot to do with the elasticity of our skin. And as our skin ages, elastin production also decreases.

HyC 150

Yes, I have done my homework and not just take a brand’s claim on their products. It does make sense, right? It does not take me a whole lot to tell that I’m in need of supplementation. Possibly because I have been working long hours in front of the computer as a virtual assistant from 2009, it has taken its toll on my poor eyes. I may not be wearing glasses just yet, but my dry eyes have always been my tell-tale sign. HyC 150 has since been my go to collagen supplement drink. Aside from HyC 150’s health benefits, the icing to the cake is my skin is more supple. What’s not to love about HyC 150? 🙂 (more…)

It is easy to leave out the importance of what undergarment to use throughout the day. We even tend to trivialize as it takes the bottom spot of the many decisions we have to make in our daily schedule. Truth be told, wearing something too tight, or too loose can easily spell out discomfort straight away.  It is as basic as it is, but remains crucial, if you think of the potential comfort or discomfort it gives you as you work on our daily grind.

As seemingly trivial as an underwear is, it remains to be a staple item that every other John and Jane, has got to deal with every single day. So we might as well get the word out on the two things to remember in choosing the right underwear for you.

RUBY CANTERAS PACIS

Gala Awards Ceremony at 15th Filipina Leadership Global Summit 12-17 September 2018 in London, United Kingdom

RUBY C. PACIS, CEO & FOUNDING PRESIDENT, FAITH IN GOD RPM PROFESSIONAL AND TECHNICAL SERVICES CORPORATION was selected one of the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World by the Filipina Women’s Network.

The Global FWN100 Award™ recognizes 100 women of Philippine ancestry who are changing the face of leadership in the global workplace, having reached status for outstanding work in their respective fields and are recognized for their achievement and contributions to society, femtorship and legacy.

FWN

Pacis was selected from an outstanding field of nominees from around the world.  She was recognized as one of The Global FWN100 under the Builders category. These are the Filipino Women who have demonstrated exceptional business impact at a large workplace environment; displaying deep passion for a cause through collaborative initiatives or alliances with nonprofit organizations on behalf of her own organization; demonstrates high potential and skill with measurable results at a government agency, or organization in the public and private sectors. “Buildership” is about building better organizations, leading broken organizations to adjust, repair and re-align.

“The Global FWN100™ women are dynamic entrepreneurs, rising stars under age 35, practitioners, behind-the-scenes leaders, community, government and corporate managers and executives who have moved through the ranks in large organizations, nonprofits, and government agencies. They are inspiring examples of women doing extraordinary work who will motivate our youth to become future leaders,” said Marily Mondejar, CEO of the Filipina Women’s Network.

“Each nominee goes through a vetting process with the Selection Committee composed of previous global awardees,” explained Thelma Boac, chair of the Global FWN™ Awards. “They were selected based on the size and scope of their board affiliations and other leadership roles.”

The Global FWN100™ Award™ is a working recognition award with a meaningful purpose:  FWN’s 2020 Vision: a Filipina woman leader in every sector of the global economy. The awardees are asked to re-invent themselves by femtoring (female mentoring) a young Filipina woman and bring her to the Filipina Leadership Global Summit on 12-17 September 2018 in London, U.K. at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel.

“Ruby Pacis is now a valued partner in helping FWN develop the Filipina community’s pipeline of qualified leaders to increase the odds that some will rise to the “president” position in all sectors of the global economy,” added Dr. Maria Beebe, FWN’s board chair. “The summit is where smart women are sharing the secrets to their success and inspire each other. The 2018 awardees’ leadership stories become part of the largest recorded Filipina women diaspora in modern times.”

“The #FWNSummit2018 theme is SUCCESS. SIGNIFICANCE. RELEVANCE. Seeing all the global awardees on stage at the awards ceremony assures me that the future of our young Filipina sisters is solid,” said Susie Quesada, president of Ramar Foods International and FWN president.

“Awardees often share this inspiring evening with their moms, grandmothers, daughters, sons, spouses, partners, young women and men, mentors and bosses from their organizations. They all come on stage to celebrate her.”

“As a leader, you should be responsible to practice values you want others to follow. Establish your feet in the Lord and rely on His unending grace. For there is no such thing as “shortcuts”- you will get hurt, you will encounter sleepless weeks and you will be pressed as hard as you could possibly feel… but beauty comes after brokenness. Your experiences will mold you and fill you until you become the person you are destined to be. Time will come, you will be the one who will heal others. For I believe, life is not about how famous you are but how other people think of you after you crossed their paths,” says Ruby Pacis.

Good Skin, Effortless Everyday Beauty #KathXHappySkin Launch

Happy Skin Kathryn Bernardo

What is not to love about Happy Skin? For one, how many brands are there that are actually skin caring? Not a whole lot, for sure. Being an advocate of everything natural, I choose to be intentional even in the makeup wearing department.

I’m not exactly a big fan of celebrities, whether local or otherwise, I barely know anything about Kathryn Bernardo, but when she started collaborating with Happy Skin, she’s totally got me curious. I started googling about her and I started loving her views and her overall personality. I even asked friends about her, as most of them chimed their admiration over her, even recommending a must-watch movie of hers, “Barcelona.’ It didn’t take long till I watch. Needless to say, I’m as well charmed by her personality. I’m all for authenticity, simplicity and natural – which basically sums up the makeup line she’s collaborating with Happy Skin.  (more…)
