LBA’s Choice: Monthly Favorites for July

August 1, 2016

Can’t believe another month has ended! The past few days have gone by so fast, I didn’t notice it’s already AUGUST!

Now let’s cut to the chase. Here are my brand favourites for the month of July!



These snacks are not only FUN to eat because of the cute animal shapes, they are absolutely HEALTHY too! Perfect for kids and well, even adults! I love to munch on them as well haha! 🙂 My daughter loves the Snackimals Chocolate Crisps cereal and the Chocolate Chip Cookies. They contain whole grains, only 7grams of sugar, and are certified USDA Organic! Calling all the health buffs!

You can find Barbara’s products at Healthy Options and supermarkets with international brands from the US.

No need for lengthy explanations. This juice is just YUMMY and HEALTHY period. Though I wanted to preserve it for as long as I can, I finished my bottle in less than a minute because it was so refreshingly yummy! I could drink this everyday.

Detoxify Bar’s Minty Berry Detox contains Apple, Berries, Mint Leaf, and Lemon. It claims to relieve stress and rewind all the harsh effects of stress and environment (WOW perfect for me!) Berries are rich in anti-oxidants that fight harmful free radicals and has long been regarded as skin food is also believed to aid in concentration and effect a sharper focus and clarity of mind.  A bottle costs Php250 and I buy it from Detoxify Bar in Alabang.




Now, this mama is happy in the kitchen with her new pan. To be candid, I was actually first attracted to its colour – my current favourite and it matches our home’s colour scheme (read more about it here)! What a bonus that it’s an original Green Pan with great cooking benefits!

Green Pan products are proven to be healthy with great performance. They launched their ceramic coated pans in 2007, and have seen millions of consumers joining the ceramic revolution. GreenPan™ has changed the material which families across the globe cook with.

“Healthy cooking is not only about the foods you use: it is also about the right cookware. The patented Thermolon™ non-stick technology is heat resistant up to high temperatures. This means that GreenPan™ has an extra safety feature; if you overheat your pan, even up to 450/850, no toxic fumes will be released and the coating will not blister or peel. Thermolon™ is a better heat conductor than traditional coatings. This results in superb searing and crispy frying! The excellent heat distribution also allows even cooking, which makes the food brown beautifully. It allows you to mostly cook on low to medium temperatures. Above all, the Thermolon™ surface provides great non-stick and is very easy to clean. GreenPan™ products are cadmium- and lead-free. 60% less CO2 is emitted during the curing phase of production of Thermolon™coatings, compared to the emissions during the curing phase of production of traditional coatings on an aggregate level worldwide. Green Pan process used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. Therefore we use upcycled stainless steel for the handles and upcycled aluminium for the cookware bodies.” (Source

Awesome looking, convenient, and healthy! What more can I ask for? 🙂

This medium frying pan costs Php1,800 and you can find it in local department stores such as Landmark, Rustan’s, and SM.



  • H&M HOME

I am a dog person. My husband is too. We both dislike cats but for some reason…our daughter loves cats! 🙁 Oh well, I guess I can live with that. As long as she doesn’t ask me to buy a real pet cat.

Anyway, when I was doing my window shopping at H&M HOME (I LOVE this store), I saw these cute kitties and instantly knew my daughter would love them! This a ceramic kitty dish and a ceramic kitty cup. (The little cat is her toy and just a prop haha). Okay, I have to admit they are quite cute!

Most of the time I still use her lightweight silicon/plastic bowls and dishes especially when traveling, but when at home, I try to use ceramic dishes too. It helps her feel like a grown up and not a baby. (Wait, do I really like that? 🙂 ) We just have to be careful and make sure there’s adult supervision because they’re breakable.

Sorry but I forget how much I bought these cuties. I think they’re about Php399 each.



  • Lay’s Honey Barbecue

I’m more of a sweet tooth than a junk food person. I really can live without chips and I only eat them when they’re there. Junk food is not part of my grocery list too. UNTIL CAME LAY’S HONEY BARBECUE…

With just the right amount of BBQ spice and honey sweetness, this is such a treat! Truly addicting, I tell you! Good thing it’s not that easy to find. Not all groceries have it. Because it’s become part of my grocery list!!!

Excuse me, I gotta go munch on these again. 🙂
