Shoe game on at home with CLN and Shopee

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but our true partner in crime is shoes.

One of my go-to brand when it comes to footwear is CLN. I just love how their selection ranges from simple to classic and chic to street. They have almost everything from sandals to ballet flats, strappy heels and pumps, even boots and sneakers!

Sadly, with the pandemic still ongoing, we can’t go out to enjoy shoe shopping the way we used to. (Don’t we all just miss walking about inside a shoe store, smelling the leather, and trying on all the shoes we want in every style and color?)

Luckily, there’s Shopee and the official CLN store to keep us up to date with the latest shoe styles — and have them shipped to us at home!

Since I only go out for essential errands like grocery shopping these days, I prefer to wear something comfortable and easy to maintain, like this classic pair of faux leather slip-on sneakers.

Even though we’re stuck at home, thatt doesn’t mean we have to crimp out on style.

On some days, I like to still put on some makeup just to get me energized for another busy day of working from home. Sometimes, I slip on my favorite work clothes, too, and pair them with dainty sandals.

In a way it’s a form of self-care, too. By wearing makeup or nice clothes and shoes even though you don’t need to go out, it encourages you to be more productive and have that sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.

How about you? What’s your shoe story this quarantine season?

Your favorites from Maybelline are now on sale at Shopee

My go-to makeup brand since high school is going on sale today, June 13, until June 15 on Shopee!

Ever since I started getting interested in makeup, probably in my late high school years, I’ve always relied on Maybelline products to complete my looks. My favorite back then was the Clear Smooth All In One Foundation, which came in a compact powder form that you can buy in a case with built-in mirror and is refillable.

I liked how light the powder felt on the skin, yet gave a subtle mattifying effect to conceal my oily skin.

These days (rather in recent time before we all had to be quarantined due to the pandemic), I’m more into the Fit Me and Super Stay lines, which offer better coverage as I go about long days at work. With my skin now riddled with freckles and other signs of aging, these product lines help a lot in making me look fresh at the least.

Which is why I got so excited learning about the upcoming Maybelline sale on Shopee. Some of the brand’s best-sellers are going on sale for as low as P149 from July 13-15, which is a really good deal — and the perfect time to stock up!

Some of the products I’m looking forward to are the Maybelline Fit Me Flawless Natural Concealer, which goes on sale at P199 from the original price of P249.

Another one that I’ve added to my cart is the Maybelline Tattoo Brow Ink Pen Eyebrow Makeup, now at a discounted price of P359 from P399.

I’ve also added the Superstay Matte Ink in one of its newest shades, the 180 Revolutionary, to my cart and have it ready for checkout come July 15, as it goes on sale for only P179 (from P239) between 12am to 2am only.

Together with that, I’ll also be checking out the Falsies Lash Lift Mascara (P399) on July 15 to get my free makeup remover.

Discounts and offers on the Maybelline Official Shopee store are only available for a limited time, so if you want toget your hands on these products too, you best download the Shopee app now. It’s free on the App Store and Google Play.

Mang Inasal welcomes back diners, puts strict safety protocols

Missed Mang Inasal? You can now dine in at your favorite restaurant following strict safety measures.

As parts of the country steadily ease restrictions on community quarantines, the well-loved Pinoy diner has joined other restaurants in resuming dine-in services, which have been placed on hold because of the extended lockdown. 

Knowing how much people have missed their favorite Mang Inasal meals and seeking to allay their fears, Mang Inasal has set in place strict protocols to ensure delicious food and safe dining experience for their customers.

Anyone who wants to enter the store must wear a face mask. The customer’s temperature will be checked and only those with a body temperature of 37.5-degree Centigrade and below will be allowed to enter.

A footbath disinfection mat is also placed at the entrance. Only a limited number of customers are allowed inside the store at any given time. Sanitizers are provided for customers at the door entrance, counter table and wash area for their use.

In keeping with the Department of Trade and Industry guidelines, Mang Inasal is requesting customers to fill out a Customer Health Form before being allowed to enter the store.  

For in-store safety, physical distancing is closely monitored as floor markers set one-meter distance for counter queues. Contact-less payment is enforced with the use of acrylic cash tray and acrylic barriers. Meanwhile, foot knobs are used as restroom doors, and regular disinfection of facilities and the sanitation of workers form part of Mang Inasal’s stringent safety protocols.

Dine-in customers are enjoined to be seated apart for physical distancing purposes. One-meter table-to-table distance segregates diners while in selected Mang Inasal stores a table barrier is placed for face-to-face dining.

Store crew sanitize the door and door handles every 30 minutes even as they pursue intensified cleaning and sanitation of fixtures and facilities.

Similarly, heightened safety protocols for food preparation and handling—on top of existing procedures that are already thorough—are also being implemented. These include the crew wearing face mask, face shield, and gloves; handwashing and sanitation every hour and when necessary; and the appointment of a Hygiene Ambassador – a crew member wearing an identifying button pin and personal protective equipment and who go around reminding crew and diners of the safety measures.  The Hygiene Ambassador himself cleans and disinfects the tables after every use.

Even the serving of unli-rice has been modified for safety purposes. Those who place unli-rice orders will be automatically served two cups of rice. Should they ask for more rice, the crew in charge will provide extra wrapped rice. Meanwhile pre-portioned condiments are served together with the ordered meal.

All these show that Mang Inasal not only serves good food enjoyed by many, but it also has the safety and well-being of its stakeholders as a priority. 

“We know how much everyone has missed dining at Mang Inasal,” says Business Unit Head Jojo P. Subido. “As we work towards the gradual return of in-store dining, we make sure to put our stakeholders at ease by placing their welfare as our top priority. In instituting all these precautions, we kept in mind our customers’ needs and concerns so that they can enjoy the Mang Inasal experience once again—safely and comfortably. We look forward to welcoming you back to our stores.”

As of this writing, over 80 per cent of Mang Inasal stores around the country are open for dine-in.

Meanwhile, customers from Metro Manila can continue enjoying Mang Inasal meals by placing their orders through #7-3333 or via Grab, Food Panda, and Lalamove. They can also place their orders through Jose, the Mang Inasal Chatbot in Facebook Messenger.
