Quick And Easy Way To Order Proactiv Online

I have always been an avid supporter of Proactiv especially after it has effectively cured and controlled my Acne. But then again, I have to admit that purchasing Proactiv in the market can be a bit challenging for some since it isn’t something you can easily buy at any local drugstore or supermarket. It’s either you go to selected stores such as Watsons or to one of their kiosks in popular malls.
The good news is Proactiv Solutions recognizes this dilemna of consumers that is why it has made Proactiv available online. Yes, you can now safely and conveniently order and purchase your favorite Proactiv products from their website and have it delivered right at your doorstep. Yup, you heard it right! No need to leave your office as your order will be delivered straight to you. You can order anytime, that means 24/7 and even engage one of their friendly Skin Care Advisors to a chat if you have other concerns and queries. You may also do this via email at or call at hotline numbers 02 729-2222 (Manila), 1-800-10-889-4444 (PLDT Provincial), 1- 800-8-7298888 (Globe Provincial) but personally, I prefer to engage them in friendly chat. Haha. And what’s more, they have a money back gurantee just in case you are not happy with your purchase. You can send back the products and they will give you refund (terms and conditions apply) which selfom happens I believe as most are satisfied with Proactiv.

So if I were you, I will purchase them with kits since they work more effectively anyway with the combination therapy system.

Completed orders before 2pm will be processed on the same day while orders after this cutoff time will be processed on the next business day. So what are you waiting for, avoid the christmas mad rush, order your Proactiv Kit online now!

Intentional Parenting

 “Don’t let yourselves be shaped by the world where you live, but rather, be transformed, through the renewal of your mind. You must discern the will of God: what is good, what pleases, what is perfect.”
Before we put Bianca in Woodrose, we made it clear to her that we have our own way of doing things in our family and our own set of rules which may be different with other families. It was important that she understands that what maybe the norm in some households, may not be in our own. It is very difficult to raise kids nowadays especially that the dynamics in certain families they are in close contact with are changing.
I guess as parents we should never get tired of teaching or reminding our children of the timeless family values and virtues we’ve learned as a child. This way, no matter how totally different the dictates of their own generation are from what the family upholds and practices, our children will not find themselves confused. Instead they would automatically decide and act based in what is good, what is pleasing, and what is perfect for God.

Cheer Up

Whenever I feel sad about my life, I ask God to give me a good reason to smile. And it never fails, being the great cheerleader that He is, He sends out the most outrageous perk me ups. No husband to talk to at night, He gave me a free iPad. Feeling the blues on my first Valentines’ day alone, He sent Bianca and I packing for an all expense paid trip with pocket money to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Missing having someone who makes me feel beautiful, He had me walking the runaway at a fashion launch abroad and had us featured in a magazine too (nevermind if I am a scoliotic case with a back hump the size of Mt. Everest and pimple marks resembling the craters of the moon). Wanting to do more and be more, He had my writing career in full swing. Dreading the empty days ahead, He instantly sends either crazy conflicts or crazy friends to occupy my time. And my list can just go on and on…Amazing how God has gone to great lengths just to see me smile and laugh again. Yes life has been unkind these past two years but God more than makes up for it. He sends out positive vibes my way all the time so that in the end, I can see clearly that the good far outweighs the bad, always.


Last Saturday, I met a fellow widow in a gathering. When she learned about my own status, she pulled me aside to engage me in a conversation. She immediately asked me, “Nung nililibing na ba ang asawa mo, nafeel mo ba yung gusto mo na ding mamatay, yung tipong gusto mo ng tumalon at sumama sa hukay?” I was so surprised with her question, I only managed to look at her in horror and say, “Noooooo!” a little forcefully. She seemed disappointed with my answer and so she tried another one, “Me days ba na parang ayaw mo na bumangon at harapin ang mundo kasi wala na sya.” This time, I really cannot help it, I gave out a laugh. She looked at me miserably and jokingly said, “Siguro di mo mahal na mahal ang asawa mo no kasi tuwang tuwa ka pa dyan!” Now, that had me doubled up in laughter. Maybe I became a little insensitive with my reaction back there but I was thinking, someday she’ll look back at everything that’s happened and be able to smile, that’s what grace do to you. Anyway, no, I didn’t die a thousand death when Nan passed away or even wished that it was me istead of him (hehe) who died. What happened in fact was quite the opposite, I felt the need to get more out of life, to live it more fully after he died. It is because I realized, I want to live life the way Nan did. I want more time to, like him, love deeply, give freely, and live with gratitude completely.

Little Light


And so the story goes that on the fateful night of August 1, 1978, when Manila was being battered by the worst storm ever, a mother gave birth to an eight month old, scrawny little baby who weighed no more than 4.5 lbs. As the baby came out of the mother’s tummy, the light too in the whole city went out. And so the baby lay there in the dark nursery, illuminated only by the nearby emergency light. The grandpa who was waiting anxiously in the corridor with the father, when he heard the baby cried, cannot helped but uttered in silence, “there goes the little light.” My name Blanca, said my lolo, means little light. And yes, that baby is me. Everyday for the past 36 years, I strive to live up to the name given to me. Even during the most difficult time in my life when I see nothing but complete darkness, I struggled for my flickering light to continue to shine. It is so easy to live in the shadow or fade into the oblivion that darkness offers but life or rather God doesn’t always include that in the many options he always presented to me. I guess because He wants the light within me to help fire the world up with His love. And so here I am today, stil trying to live up to the challenge that comes with my name, still trying to light up (your) the world, through the big or small roles that I play in your life. Thank you for giving me the chance and the opportunity to do that everyday. And for the warm greetings and heartwarming birthday wishes too.

My Sheeps

Gospel Reflection: “The keeper opens his voice; he calls each of his sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them and the sheep follow him for they know his voice.”—As a class adviser, I have this thing about names. I call my students not by their nicknames but by their real names. At the start my students would often go crazy because I am the only one doing that, they would insist on me calling them by their nicknames but eventually they learn to love it. In fact, after a while, they would feel funny whenever I will call them otherwise. So Bea is Beatrice in my class, Fides is Teresa, Mika is Monica, Gabby is Margarita, Maria is Maranatha and Sam is Samuelle etc. ‘Cause you see, when they get to my class, they have to leave behind their old self and the labels that they carry with them. When they become part of my flock, they get a fresh start. I am the sheperd in my class, I want that amidst the noise and the distractions around them, each of my sheep hear and recognize my voice when I call them. I want that in the middle of all the confusion, each one of them follows to where I will lead them. And it never fails, at the end of the year, all my 27 sheeps make it to that place where I want them to be. And what’s more, they manage to live up to the goodness and the promise behind their christian names.

Gospel Reflection: May 5, 2014

Gospel Reflection: “What shall we do? What are the works that God wants us to do?”—I’d like to believe that God is not a complicated God. He is not one to demand outrageous things from us. All he wants is for us to simply do GOOD. Nothing else. In fact, in His effort to help us do good, He gave us clear sets of guidelines in which we can measure up our actions. He gave us the ten commandments and shared to us the golden rule. If we stick to what’s written in His book or rather His tablet (hehe), we will never go wrong. 🙂

Training the heart, hands, and mind

“Brothers and sisters, you call upon a Father who makes no distinction between persons, but judges, according to each deeds; take seriously, then, these years which you spend in a strange land.”
I remember years ago, I had this Grade 1 mentee who came up to me and whispered conspiratorially, “Mrs. Dela Cruz, did you know that doing good deeds is the easiest way to get to heaven?” I couldn’t help but play along and so I whispered back, “Really, so what good deeds have you done so far?” To my surprise, she straightened up, looked at me squarely in the eye and announced triumphantly, “I’ve decided that I’m going to heaven the hard way!” And with that she left me in a huff laughing helplessly after her. My friend and I have a challenge between ourselves, that is to do at least one unique, definitely not the usual, really-go-out-of-your-way kind of good deed everyday. Honestly it was quite hard to do at first especially when your instinct tells you to do otherwise but surprisingly, I realized it is possible. It is just a matter of training the heart, hands, and mind.

Gosoel Reflection: April 15, 2014

Jesus answered, “Where I am going, you cannot follow me but afterward you will.”
When Nan died, I became really serious in my intention to end up in heaven. Nan without a doubt has already earned his place there for having been a good man during his lifetime. Bianca might have a sure spot there too with the gentle and kind way she’s living her life now. When my end comes, I want to be in heaven too like my family but with the rate things ( i.g. impatience, temper, naughtiness etc.) are going for me, it might take me forever to reach heaven. In fact I’m already having visions of myself looking up at the puzzled faces of Nan and Bianca looking down at me from heaven! Kidding aside though, Jesus has already set an example on how we should live our life so we can reach that place that God intends for us, all we have to do is try our best to follow his lead. I know, I know, easier said than done…operative word: try.:)
