HUMAN NATURE, largest producer of genuinely natural personal care and cosmetic products in the country, recently opened its flagship store in Quezon City.
Founded by Anna Meloto-Wilk and Camille Meloto, daughters of GK founder Tony Meloto, Human Nature’s products are 100% made in the Philippines and 100% free from harmful chemicals.
What started out as a humble idea to provide jobs as well as natural and organic personal care products to Filipinos, has, over the short span of three years, spread all over the Philippines and reached the United States.
Designed by Mau Adraneda and Joyce Angara, the concept store was designed as an enchanted forest in the midst of a concrete jungle.
Aside from the complete range of Human Nature products, it carries products from other Filipino social enterprises, such as:
• Golden Eggs—salted eggs without the toxic food color
• Café de Sug—Gawad Kalinga’s famous coffee from Sulu
• Enchantea—healthy iced tea from the GK Enchanted Farm
• FilBambu—food items containing bamboo, winners in the Shanghai Expo
• Theo & Philo Chocolates—the only 100% bean to bar Filipino artisan chocolate
• Jacinto & Lirio—luxury bags made from leather and water hyacinth
• Red Carpet, Blue Bamboo, Salabatea and more.
Enjoy free-flowing locally-grown brewed coffee like barako, mountain blends and Sulu Coffee when you visit the store at 460 Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City.

Human Nature is also available at Rustans, Shopwise, and Beauty Bar.
This Lent I decided to give up meat, except for Sundays as the priest said on Ash Wednesday that Sundays are exempt from whatever sacrifice you decide to do this Lent.
Isn’t that a great thing? I wish I had known this before, I could have lasted better two years ago. Last year I didn’t shop for the whole duration of Lent and was actually able to stick to it.
Are you giving up something this Lent? At Pepper Lunch, you can stick your pact by trying any of our Lenten specials, such as Teriyaki Bangus Pepper Rice and Teriyaki Bangus Fillet with Cabbage and Corn Siding.
Only at Pepper Lunch Rockwell, Greenbelt 5, Shangri-La Plaza, Alabang Town Center (2/F Corte delas Palmas), SM Megamall A, Robinson’s Place Ermita, Mall of Asia, and opening very soon at Trinoma.
It’s not the first time non-models or older men have walked down the runway—Japanese labels do it all the time.
But Prada’s presentation of its Men’s Fall/Winter collection for 2012 was extra special because its lineup of models included actors Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Tim Roth, Emile Hirsch, Jamie Bell, twin actors Victor and Alex Carril, and Garrett Hedlund—mixed in with professional and character models.
Well, I feel bad there are only four days to go before the Oscars and I’ve only seen one movie, which I hated.
Based on my track record, the movie I hate always wins. I therefore predict some awards for The Help.
I still have a couple of days to try to watch some of the nominated movies.
How many have you seen and what do you recommend?
On Monday next week, watch the Academy Awards on Velvet channel beginning 6 AM Manila time, if you want to see the Red Carpet coverage. If you prefer to sleep in longer, show proper begins at 9:30 AM.
Billy Crystal returns once again as host. And if you’re working, a replay will be shown on Monday night.
Lauren Bush’s charity project, the FEED bags, are back in stock at http://www.ava.ph/.
Buying this bag will support the FEED Project’s mission to fight world hunger. Proceeds go to the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) school feeding operations, which serve nutrient-packed meals to children in 74 countries worldwide.
Food gets kids energy to go to school and empower them to better their lives.
Made with sustainable materials, these eco bags are a great alternative to disposable paper and plastic bags, so you’ll help the environment as well.
The Feed 1 bag is large, roomy and reversible. Made of burlap on one side and white cotton on the other, sling it over your shoulder and you’re good to go. (Php 3,500)
Feed 2 is also reversible but comes with an extra shoulder strap you can sling across your body. Perfect for travelers who like to keep their stuff close by. (Php 5,500)
A must for book lovers, the Feed 3 bag is a partnership with Barnes & Noble. Revenues from its sales will provide three school lunches and three Room to Read children’s books for children in Nepal. (Php 1,600)
Feed 10 is a lightweight cotton tote packaged inside a little burlap bag. Each FEED 10 bag sold will provide 10 school meals to children through the United Nations World Food Programme’s School Feeding program. (Php 1,500)
Feed 100 is a perfect shopping tote that folds inside a zippered burlap pouch. Pop this inside your usual bag and say no to other shopping bags when you’re out. That, and you’ll be feeding 100 children through the program. (Php 1,750)
