These Snacks Covered in Dark Chocolate are Incredibly Addicting!

Do you love snacks? Though I am not a big fan of chips, I tend to find myself searching for snacks in the middle of day or even in the middle of the night just to satiate the little bits of hunger pangs that I tend to get out of nowhere.

The intense snack searches tend to get worse on days that I work out, and that's when the sugar cravings start. Whether you're looking for semi-healthier snacks to snack on or want to give out delicious goodies this holiday season, you need to check out Little Miss Safiya's Bakehouse.



I discovered Little Miss Safiya's Bakehouse sometime last year and to this day; their taste, deliciousness, and quality hasn't changed a single bit.

Little Miss Safiya's Bakehouse offers different types of snacks to suit anybody's preference - and the best part? They work well as gifts because they come in cute reusable tin cans that people can use to store trinkets, ticket stubs, jewelry, and other memories in after they've eaten all of the goodies inside.

It's hard to decide which product of theirs I love the most, so I'm just going to introduce you to all of them:



This is their polvoron. Although smaller than most polvorons that I usually find in the market; it is actually the right size given its texture, taste and sweetness. One is just enough to be called a dessert after a heavy meal and you actually won't be finishing the entire pack when all you are looking for is a quick sweet fix.

Since each polvoron in the box is individually wrapped, you won't have to worry about losing its flavor or texture. (Insider tip: keep it refrigerated; it tastes even better from the fridge!)



This is their Dark Chocolate Crisped Rice - the snack that reminds me oh-so-much of my own childhood. I used to munch on rice crispies while watching movies as a kid, especially when I was sick, so this is a very nostalgic snack for me.

The only difference is that this crisped rice is covered in dark chocolate, so it's a healthier alternative and isn't too sweet, either.



As for their Dark Chocolate Tropical Mango... well, I was lucky to even taste just one of this when we received our package of three tin cans this week. My dad loves the stuff so much, he automatically made them all angkin the moment he found out what it was. (I can't blame him, though; the stuff really is delicious.)

If you love dried mangoes, you need to try Little Miss Safiya's Bakehouse's version. It is so addicting, one tin can won't be enough for one sitting.

Krisha Dee, the owner of Little Miss Safiya's Bakehouse, definitely knows that she made exceptional products. After all, the reason why she started making them is because she always found chocolate dried mangoes too sweet, hairy, and overpowering. This is what drove her to find the perfect balance in her own product - and she definitely succeeded with every single one!

Don't Miss the Giltbox Beauty Fair Tomorrow (It's Free of Charge!)

Have you heard of Giltbox yet? In case you haven't, this is the time to familiarize yourself with the brand.

Giltbox is the leading beauty and lifestyle retailer in the country and they are set to have their first ever Beauty Fair tomorrow, which you definitely shouldn't miss if you're a beauty junkie!


You can look forward to more than 40 booths from Giltbox's partner international and local brands, ranging from makeup to skincare to haircare to lifestyle products. And that's not all. There will also be various activities that you can enjoy with your besties, like beauty consultations, makeovers, discounts, and freebies for the attendees.

The highlight will definitely be the Make Your Own Giltbox activity, though, where you can make your own Giltbox consisting of 5 high end products (with brands like Benefit Cosmetics, Clinique, TRESemme, and more).


The best part? Everyone is invited and entrance to the Beauty Fair is completely free. Giltbox's Founder and Managing Director Paul Dimafelix shares, “We wanted this event to be open to all beauty enthusiasts and also to those who are beauty curious. People love makeovers and consultations, so we made sure that the event would have loads of that. Plus, if you get bored, you can just walk around the booths – you’re bound to find something you’ll like!”


See you there? :)

These Stranger Things Clothes are Absolute Must-Haves!

I've been a HUGE Stranger Things fan since season one, but I am an even bigger one now, thanks to the awesomeness of Season 2 (read my review of it here - I also have an ongoing giveaway, peeps!). So, when I heard that Globe and Netflix were releasing a line of Stranger Things apparel and merchandise, I'm pretty sure I was one of the first few people to order a whole bunch of items from them online.
As always, my orders arrived in just a few days and MY GOODNESS, THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT. My geeky heart is very, very happy.
If you are a Stranger Things fan, it's time to string up those Joyce Byer-inspired Christmas lights onto your walls, break out those Eggos, and don these bad-ass clothes from Globe and Netflix.
The best part? This 0917 Lifestyle apparel pushes for Filipino pride as it is the only official licensee in Asia to carry Stranger Things apparel so far.
The 0917 Lifestyle Stranger Things collection features a limited edition collection of graphic tees, ringer shirts, sweaters, a letterman jacket, a shirt dress, and bags that do Stranger Things real justice.
Some of the references that fans will appreciate include images related to the Stranger Things kids, as well as my favorites: the items with famous likes on them, like “Friends Don’t Lie”. A lot of the items also offer visual homages to Hawkins and the Upside Down world, complete with that irresistible retro 80’s feel.

Watch my noob unboxing video here:

To see the entire 0917 Lifestyle Stranger Things collection visit shop.globe.com.ph or visit selected Globe stores. You may also follow @0917 on Instagram. I may just have another giveaway for this one, too, though. ;) Who wants?
