Marks & Spencer and Joanna Lizares-Co on Motherhood & Mindfulness

If only you call her a Super Woman – a successful career, a responsible daughter and a sister, and above all, a wife and a mother. She takes these with all her heart, without complaining, even as she needs to haggle from Davao to Cebu City from where she originally comes from. It was in 2002 when Yoga instructor Joanna Christina Lizares-Co, 46, married Dabawenyo businessman Zosimo Co. She moved to Davao City in the same year and since then, Joanna has considered the city as her second home. The couple is blessed with two beautiful girls – Gianna Simone, 12, and Simmina Christina, 9.

Her father passed away last December. “I moved to Davao in 2002 and when I went home to Cebu, my time centered on my dad. Whenever my da…


Trying to find ideas what to give mom this Sunday? Most of us would want to take our moms out to dinner. Or maybe have a grand vacation somewhere. But at some days, we are on a tight budget. Fret not, because I found an ideal gift idea for moms that is really affordable and may genuinely last forever!

Last Tuesday,  I was lucky to be one mommy bloggers who were invited to a mini succulent planting workshop by Botanophilic Davao in partnership with Trust Home Depot. The Say it with Succulent Pop Up Shop basically taught us some tips on how to plant, propagate and grow succulents. Surprisingly, I find it easy and fun to get addicted to. It is so relaxing.You just have to love greens and I don't mind getting my hands dirty.

So here's what happened during the workshop.

Ystilo Salon, a  business owned by celebrity sisters Vina Morales and Shaina Magdayao is one of the fastest growing franchise business in the salon industry in the Philippines. Just recently, its 28th branch was formally inaugurated in Abreeza Ayala Mall here in Davao City. Not only that its the 28th branch, the Abreeza Mall branch is the first company owned branch in the Mindanao. According to Shaina, more Mindanao branches are in the works and might open soon.

The 18 year old family business continue to grow with the help of their other non showbiz sister Sheila Magdayao who actually heads the marketing department. Salon staff are highly trained and most of them are hired from Manila. Adding up to its highly commendable services is their very affordable rates. See how friendly the services are.

Following the salon blessing and ribbon cutting, the actresses Vina and Shaina were very accommodating to the media and bloggers for the intimate media briefing. Fans on the other hand were so …
