Doublemint’s LoveWraps Concludes with A Winner


Doublemint’s Sarah and Juan campaign came to a close with a winner after over a thousand Filipino participants nationwide sharing their own kilig stories through #LoveWraps. 

Even select local celebrities, bloggers, and the press picked up the campaign in telling their own stories of affection to their loved ones. Numerous entries in the #LoveWraps microsite came from different parts of the Philippines, with entries showing that expressing love or affection was not limited to significant others, but also to family members and barkadas. The chosen winner of #LoveWraps was Rio Espejon from Cebu, for his creative and inspiring story. He won the grand prize, which was a trip to Boracay for two. 

Rio Espejo’s winning entry


Creating meaningful connections is a very Filipino gesture, as seen on the participants’ entries. Going beyond the kilig factor, the #LoveWraps campaign highlights the importance of these connections and the sweet memories that come along with it. It also happens to closely follow the story and "kilig" factor of Kathniel's blockbuster movie, "Can't Help Falling in Love."
The high participation to this campaign shows that the story of Sarah and Juan is relevant to us Filipinos. Sarah and Juan both represent the common person in finding love and cherishing it with the people he/she finds important. There is importance to finding a special someone, or at least sharing something meaningful with others. Having that connection will always create a sweet and kilig feeling, just like the sweet gestures and surprises make our day. It tugs the heartstrings and delights the common Filipino, and the experience is not limited to celebrity love teams or couple influencers who exchange a cute banter or two. It can happen to anyone.
It goes without saying that it’s the little things that matter, even if it simply starts by sharing a stick of gum.

Who is Dr. Paolo Bellosillo?


Doc Pao is one of the kindest, if not the kindest doctor that you will ever meet. A lot of doctors say that they care about their patients but trust you me when I say that Dr. Paolo Bellosillo truly, madly, deeply cares for his patients in every way of form.

We had the chance to sit down and talk to Doc Pao amidst his busy schedule and here’s what we were able to discuss.

Sick of Baby Brain: 4 Tips for Getting Things Done


Before you have kids, you think that baby brain can’t possibly be a real thing. New mothers are tired and bound to get confused and flustered from time to time. But, many studies have already shown that baby brain is in fact tied to hormones. So, if you’re leaving your car keys in the fridge and trying to get into your car with a piece of cheese, it isn’t just fatigue that’s making you do it. Having said this, there are some ways you can be prepared to battle baby brain. Here they are.



Make Lists

A pen and paper can be sent from the heavens when you’re trying to figure out why you forgot your mother’s birthday last week. For new mothers who are usually organised, dealing with baby brain can be a really upsetting experience. Writing down lists can help you to remember things you don’t want to forget. It’s often helpful to have your lists right in front of you. So, sticking a large chalk board to the fridge can be of benefit. When you have a quiet five minutes, write your list and try to tick things off as you go along.
