The Ultimate Test and Healing Power of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly and Lotion #HealWithVaseline

The summer heat takes its toll in the country and everyone is becoming at risk of sun damage and skin dehydration. For a tropical country like ours, sunburns and skin dryness are common skin problems of most people. From day to day activities, such as hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, and exposure to heat and pollution during one's daily commute, skin is exposed to damaging factors that leaves skin dry and dehydrated.

That is why Vaseline, the skin healing expert, aims to make it easy for Filipinas to replenish their skin’s moisture with their best-selling and iconic Vaseline Petroleum Jelly- the wonder jelly that has been a staple in all households due to its healing and moisturizing properties.

To showcase this healing power, a small experimental box was delivered to me early last week that contains two sets of natural leaves. One set was covered with Vaseline jelly, while the other set had none. Few days later, the difference was very visible. The leaves without Vaseline turned dry, brittle, and dull, while the leaves with Vaseline stayed soft, moist and dewy.

Vagabonds Artisan Comfort Food- Eating Like Kings and Vagabonds in Quezon City

Can you feel the love tonight? We certainly did at this newly opened restaurant in Quezon City called Vagabonds. It was Friday night and we were searching for a new place to try around the area when we spotted Vagabonds Artisan Comfort Food in the corner of Scout Limbaga and Scout Torillo.

The space was small but spacious with high ceilings, comfy chairs, and hats. Yes, they have a lot of hats in the restaurant. The place can accommodate around 30+ people at the same time, and could be a great venue for small gatherings and private functions. 

Belgian Wanderer Wings (P220)

Sugar, spice, and everything nice! These wings are cooked in a blend of chocolate marinade and Spanish paprika. They are coated in a rich and thick sweet sauce sprinkled with chili flakes and comes with a Pimiento Aioli dip. For me, the aioli dip was unnecessary. It didn't much complement the dish as the wings were already great on its own. 

Mediterranean Pasta (P300)

I was eyeing on the Mac and Cheese selections for pasta, but thought it would be too heavy for dinner. Instead, we had this classic aglio olio mixed with seafood. Serving size was huge and can be shared by 2 people. There were generous servings of tender squid rings as well. 

Ibiza Chicken with Chorizo Pilaf (P280)

This dish is a quarter chicken drenched in rich and thick red sauce on a bed of chorizo pilaf. The sauce was a bit salty but goes well with the rice. I squeezed in some lemon to enhance the flavors of both the rice and chicken. D liked this dish more than I did but I still enjoyed it very much.

Vagabonds Artisan Comfort Food Menu:

I'm looking forward to visiting Vagabonds Artisan Comfort Food again. There are a lot more dishes I want to try on their menu such as their burgers, salads, and milkshakes. They currently have a soft opening promo of 10% off the total bill on their Facebook page until the end of April. Unfortunately, I saw the ad a little too late. Can't wait to go back with the fam at Vagabonds Artisan Comfort Food again.

Purefoods Sexy Chix Arrabiata Cannelloni- Home Foodie Bloggers Love Chicken

Heavy traffic nowadays discourage us from leaving the house especially on weekends. With that, we are sometimes forced to just stay in the house and look for some productive things to do. Fortunately, for us home foodies, we can still enjoy a nice healthy meal without breaking the bank or spending so much time on the road. Cooking at home is one of the things some home foodies enjoy and look forward to. Aside from being a cheaper alternative to dining out, cooking at home is also healthier and more nutritious.

Last week, we swapped our usual Saturdate of dining out and opted to stay at home and cook some dishes. We came across the new Purefoods Sexy Chix variants and thought of how we can make a unique and innovative dish out of a can. We came up with a Sexy Chicken AdoBao using Purefoods Sexy Chix Adobo, and Sexy Chix Hainanese Chicken Pizza using Purefoods Sexy Chix Hainanese Style Chicken. This time, we used the third variant Purefoods Sexy Chix Arrabiata to make our own Sexy Chix Arrabiata Cannelloni.
