This isn’t your usual beauty post, but I’ve really been taking these! Calchews are chewable calcium supplements but I do want to mention them after they were sent to me. I find myself chewing them randomly in the car or in places where I shouldn’t be falling asleep, once a day. What helps me want to take them is they come in yummy flavors of Caramel or Chocolate. I like Chocolate because it tastes like an easier to chew version of my childhood favorite, Tootsie Roll candy, it really, really does.
“CalChews is the only calcium supplement in the market that is enriched not only with Vitamin D3 but also with Vitamin K – vitamins essential for optimum bone health. Calcium is one of the most important minerals that our body needs. It is essential to maintain strong bones and healthy lifestyles. It has also been found to contribute to weight management, strong teeth, and helps with PMS and mood swings. Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K both provide the perfect combination for a more superior Calcium Supplement. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium absorption that helps prevent bone diseases such as osteomalacia and osteoporosis. Vitamin K ensures that the full benefit of calcium is directed to where our body need it most – our bones. Vitamin K is the vitamin that binds Calcium to our bones.” (NOTE: Not sugarfree, not suitable for those with diabetes. Contains Vitamin K, consult your Doctor first if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking blood thinning medication.)

I actually have to STOP myself from taking more than one a day coz of how yummy they are (these are calcium supplements so you’re not supposed to snack on them, haha)! Zoomed in on the chocolate one it actually looks like a brownie. If you hate taking supplements these might help change your mind.

We’re talking about what we get to talk with, our mouths. I’m proud to report that I am a cavity-free person. I’ve never had a single cavity nor had a major bad breath problem except for when I was sick and acidic, or sleepless and acidic, or naturally if I had satisfyingly drooled on my pillow (or your shoulder) after an exhausting day. Oh by the way please…*clenches fists and bows head* PLEASE…everyone look at the blackboard, when we’re referring to “breath” as a noun there’s no “e” at the end of the word. Breathe is the verb “We breathe air in order to live.” which does have an “e” at the end. Again, breath is the noun “She gave her last breath and died (and so did everyone else in the room because she didn’t use Oracare).” That’s it, thanks, just spotted both words being misused often especially on Facebook so had to clear that up. Okay, now back to the subject of one’s oral hygiene, I actually didn’t have any problem with previous mouthwashes that stung to be honest, I was okay with the strong sensation. What I didn’t like was how red my lips would get after rinsing with the standard issue mouthwash. After brushing my teeth before applying makeup the last thing I needed was my lips becoming super red and clashing underneath my lip shade of choice. After that, and the hassle of a next step in my oral regimen, I stopped using mouthwash. Vanity…I know, but if you happen to be an artist you’d totally be able to relate. So recently I tried this.
“OraCare Mouthrinse is a stabilized chlorine dioxide mouthrinse. Its alcohol-free formulation keeps the mouth’s natural moisture and provides a clean, fresh feeling without the painful burning sensation and sting. It is gentle enough for the mouth’s sensitive and delicate tissues so it can be used as often as needed.”

When I first saw billboards of this I thought the taste would be awful, couldn’t imagine it otherwise. As it turns out, it isn’t awful, in fact it’s hardly anything, it’s like water with a jab of refreshing peppermint that doesn’t get your lips red. It’s like light peppermint water BUT with a lasting effect. Sometimes people confuse strong sting for what combats bad breath but what’s more effective is a compound that can neutralize sulfuric odor compounds in the mouth. I also use this to rinse off and disinfect my retainer for my teeth which I wear to sleep at night. It’s a very light neutral taste but once you’ve rinsed with this any acidic foodie film or presence in your mouth tastes like it’s completely gone, especially if you’ve properly brushed your teeth beforehand. If you’re one of those people who relies ONLY on mouthwash for a clean mouth please leave this page now LOL, you stink. I do want a mouthrinse that regularly doesn’t turn my lips red and Oracare does the job nicely.
There’s a not so secret secret that a lot of the youth locally know already, that Jamba Juice has something off the menu that you can ask for. I’m talking about the ever yummy Red Gummi shake, reminiscent of gummi bears and everything beary fruity good. My brother and i made a discovery just yesterday. We discovered a juice that tastes just like it.
Tipco juice is made of 3 parts of mixed fruit or vegetable juice. My brother agrees with me on the fact that Tipco’s Purple Carrot & Mixed Fruit variant nails the Red Gummi flavor we’ve been missing from Jamba…especially when chilled. It’s veggie juice without the savory yuck factor some people can’t stand (I can, I love v8) and even my triathlete aunt, Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan, drinks this juice and my cousins, her tri-athlete kids, love it. It’s naturally fruity sweet with NO added sugar, artificial colors or preservatives. We got this box and other variants for around Php80++ each at Iloilo Supermarket.

Most of you know of her and you know the cosmetic range that bears her name.
Watch and hear this ancient video of Elizabeth Arden herself speaking on the eradication of old 1890’s Victorian style posture and the renaissance of posture in the new century with the support of proper exercise. What a gem of a video and I couldn’t help but giggle at the way these women were exercising on the beach, but in fairness I do want to get my splits and handstands back eventually. Temptation Island, anyone?
