Céleteque lets you take control of aging skin.
Now, you can look ageless.
Oily acne-prone skin: that is one thing that I have been trying to solve since puberty. I had been trying different kinds of skin care products for so many years now and I must say that it's been a hit-and-miss journey.
Through time, I realized that perhaps, having oily skin is not that bad at all for it is the skin type that won't develop wrinkles and fine lines too early in the game unlike dry skin types that is prone to such problems.
Since I am in my late 20's now, preventing the premature signs of aging should be my utmost priority beauty-wise. As they say, it is never too late to take good care of your skin. Good thing, I got to attend Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Range event where I learned about the importance of using anti-aging products!
Aging is inevitable and with it comes different skin problems that are unique to every woman such as wrinkles, dullness, enlarged pores, and fine lines. Age brings wisdom and grace, but along with it comes different skin-aging problems –each one unique to every woman. When each woman is unique and every concern equally alarming, how does one take control? The smart way is to use precision solutions that target unique symptoms of skin aging.
Control signs of aging with the NEW CÉLETEQUE DermoScience™ Advanced Anti-Aging Line. Providing precise solutions that target various signs of aging, this product range empowers you to control more and age less. Céleteque uses the best of science in the Advanced Anti-Aging range to create precision solutions for women who want to control time's effect on their skin.
Wrinkles are probably the most common among the skin's unwelcome guests, but the Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel (P779, 50ml) contains Hydrolyzed Collagen that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as Soya Bean Protein, that makes skin soft and supple. A light textured gel that can be used day and night, it effectively minimizes fine lines and wrinkles by up to 68% within the first two weeks of use.
I personally love using the Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel for it has lightweight formula that moisturizes my oily skin without the greasy feeling. I like that after applying it, my skin feels a bit tighter and firmer.
Enlarged pores are the skin's subtle but noticeable enemy, and women are prone to it as they age – skin loses its elasticity which leads to pores becoming more visible, making the skin appear older.
The Advanced Anti-Aging Tightening Pore Serum (P849, 30ml) is a great pre-makeup or night serum, with the triple action of Niacinamide that improves skin’s firmness and elasticity, Alpha-lipoic acid that reduces oiliness for a more refined smoother-looking visage, and Salicylic Acid that removes dead skin cells that can clog and stretch pores further. Use daily for younger-looking, visibly refined pores within 7 days.
Celeteque Pore Tightening Serum has an even lighter formulation than the Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel, I use this on mornings because that is when my oily skin is more prone to sweating and feeling greasier especially with this humid summer season. This hydrates my skin well without the sticky and hot feeling that most rich moisturizers give.
Did you know your skin cells regenerate as you sleep? A good night's sleep may be a classic beauty secret for bringing life back to dull and tired-looking skin, but it works twice better if you snooze off with a night cream that works hard to rejuvenate your skin as you slumber
The Rejuvenating Night Cream (P899, 50ml) contains PhytoCellTec™ that protects the longevity of skin stem cells to combat skin aging, and uses the unique Aqua-Shuttle technology that deeply penetrates skin to provide intense hydration overnight. This intense nourishing cream is also enriched with Sodium Hyaluronate and Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) that protects the skin from free radicals that prematurely age the skin –all these to give your dull and dry skin a nightly makeover.
Rejuvenating Night Cream has a rich formulation that penetrates the skin deeply keeping your face well moisturized while you sleep. Every night, I make sure to hydrate my facial skin really well so that all the good ingredients will be absorbed by my skin. It is at the time of night when I am not bothered at all even if my skin feels too moisturized with all these products. I found that doing so is good because I wake up with my skin feeling rejuvenated, glowing, and healthy!
Aside from the Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel, Tightening Pore Serum and Rejuvenating Night Cream, Céleteque now brings you two new products, the Line Reducing Eye Mask and Rejuvenating Facial Mask. These products will definitely complete your day-to-night facial routine and help you achieve that healthy glow.
The new Line Reducing Eye Mask (P105) is a perfect night mask which helps reduce fine lines up to 89% in 4 weeks as it contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) that tightens the skin, D-Panthenol that rehydrates sensitive skin around the eyes and Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E) that protects the skin against oxidation that causes wrinkles.
The Rejuvenating Facial Mask (P165) can be a nightly treat for women reducing wrinkles up to 84% with continued use in 4 weeks as it contains Bio-Peptides—composed of amino acids, peptides and vitamins that rejuvenated and brings back the skin's glow—and Sodium Hyaluronate, a tried-and-tested moisturizing agent for the skin.
Nowadays, being wise doesn’t mean you have to look old—as we age, being smart about beauty choices is the best way to keep looking ageless. It pays to understand that skin aging is different for every woman, and to take control of the skin aging concerns that come our way.
The Céleteque DermoScience Advanced Anti-Aging range is available in Watsons, PCX, and major department stores, as well as online via the official Celeteque store on Lazada.com.

Top 6 Must-Try Korean Beauty Products from BNS Philippines + Review and Swatches!
Korean beauty products have been trending in the Philippines for years now, almost every beauty enthusiasts I know have some random Korean beauty brands sitting in their collection. Why is that so? Was it the cute and chic packaging? The popular Korean celebrities endorsing them?
I didn't know much back then but discovering the impressive potency of using their facial sheet masks almost everyday got me into joining the K-beauty bandwagon and since then I couldn't get enough of 'em!
One of the reliable online sellers of Korean skin care and cosmetics that I recently found is BNS Philippines (stands for Beauty 'N Style in Seoul). The brands that I saw in their Instagram account are those that I am not yet that familiar of BUT the eye-catching blingy packaging of Style 71, the world's first cosmetic jewelry brand, got me curious!
They also have this raved-about Ariul Seven Days Mask Set that has lots of variants to choose from: green tea, pomegranate, bamboo water, avocado, tea tree, lemon, and aloe.
How to use:
After cleansing and toning, apply the sheet mask by aligning the nose, mouth and eye holes. Smooth the sheet to fit the curves of the face. Apply for 15-25 minutes. Remove and discard the mask, patting in any remaining liquid gently into your skin.
Optional: follow up with a moisturizer to seal all the great ingredients from your sheet mask into your skin. Use as often as desired.
Based on my observation, using these facial masks daily for 7 consecutive nights gave my skin a brighter glow and more even-toned looking complexion. The effects look subtle somehow the camera couldn't capture it easily but in person, the difference is obvious to me and my husband who practically sees me everyday.
The facial sheet masks smell fruity, oriental, and fresh. Its cold temperature lying against my warm facial skin is sooooo relaxing, there were times that I literally slept with the mask on. It isn't that bad when it happens but it is advised to leave sheet masks on for only 20 minutes maximum to avoid the mask from absorbing back the product essence that has already passed onto your face.
Narke Girl Tone-Up Cream
- It contains vegetable extract and fermented living bio ingredients that moisturize, firm and smoothen skin. It has excellent skin-lightening effect while strengthening and protecting the skin.
Niacinamide, plum fermentation filtered water, gold extract, pear powder, and glutathione; peptides, plant stem cell extracts, beta-glucan natto gu vegetable oil, lecithin, aloe, licorice, piper methysticum extract, and various vitamin ingredients.
Initial product review:
After washing my hands with soap and water, I applied the Narke Girl Tone Up Cream on my bare hand. I instantly noticed the difference between the dull-looking dry skin in the before photo versus the moisturized and healthy-looking skin on the after photo. The effect was it looked brighter, more glowing, and it felt softer.
KKO:T Essence Lip Tint Balm Transparent Glass Flower Lipstick
This product is a nutrient-filled lip tinted balm that contains a dried flower inside. I got the pink one which is nice 'cause it is my much-preferred color!
The main ingredients are sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, squalane, and tocopherol, etc. that can be used as a quick hydrating solution to dry and rough lips. Applying it on the lips is easy for its formulation is lightweight, it felt like nothing is on my lips: no icky, sticky and oily feeling. Good job!
I admire its simplicity and understated beauty. The single flower inside is indeed eye-catching! A must-have for beauty enthusiasts who appreciates pretty aesthetics.
The product is encased in a transparent acrylic container which looks nice. As for its lip moisturizing properties, I like it. However this doesn''t leave any tiny hint of color on the lips yet it enhances its appearance for making look smoother and more plump.
Style71 Jewel BB Luxury Cushion (Full Cover)
This cushion has a Triple Function of:
UV protection (SPF 50 PA+++),
Anti-Wrinkle (skin protection/moisturizing),
Skin Brightening (Whitening, radiant skin)
It contains natural ingredients with a perfect coverage all day long.
Now, wow! This packaging is the bomb!!! I got the attractive design "F-07 Lip" and it's 100% handmade with crystals, made in Korea, yo!!! Love. love, love! This design totally screams "ME!" I will definitely keep this forever!
Did you know that their jewelry compact is made with 7 jewelry ingredients inside? They believe that these are the secrets to eegant and bright skin tone like a jewel!
There's ruby (for skin circulation), pearl (amino-acid, dermatropic, light), amethyst (glowing look), coral(skin protection), amber (alleviates skin conditions and atrophy), nephrite (anti-bacterial), and tourmaline (contains minerals, removes wastes, gives revitalized look).
This Jewelry Cushion is made with special water: 100% Belgium Spau hot spring water! It boasts of abundant minerals that moisturizes the skin all day. Spau is a town of mineral water springs frequented by the aristocrats and Kings since Roman times. It is the eponymous town of "spa"we are now familiar today!
The vital ingredients of the Jewelry Cushion are:
Belgium spring water, Damask rose water, teatree extract, evermat, hibiscus, aquaxyl, evening primrose extract, chamomile extract, and Narcissus scaly bulb extract.
Upon initial observation, the formulation of this Jewelry Cushion is buildable from sheer to medium to heavy finish. They say that it has full coverage that can instantly even out uneven skintone however if you have dark acne spots and fresh reddish blemishes, this product can't fully cover them, therefore using a concealer and color corrector is a must!
I like how natural its finish looks just like your second skin only better! It is enough to cover minimal redness but not too much that it would look cakey or too heavy.
Here I am wearing the Style 71 Jewel Bb Luxury Cushion and Style 21 Jewelry Velvet Lipstick Color in #002
Son Style 71 Jewel Velvet Lipstick Color in #002
This eye-catching velvet lipstick has more to offer than just its pretty 100% handmade Jewel Crystal casing for this line has a variety of vivid colors to choose from for all occasions as well as it has a moisturizing formula that protects the lips.
I love its highly-pigmented, buildable formulation because I can adjust it from looking sheer to matte opaque! I tried applying several layers of this on my lips and here is the result:
What I like is this Velvet Lipstick has a vivid color already seen in just one heavy swipe, a velvety soft texture that is smooth and has a moist finish, and a long-wearing effect. It doesn't easily budge! Wow!
Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Tissue
This makeup removing tissue gently and quickly cleanses and moisturizes your skin with a natural fragrance that refreshes your senses for a relaxing effect. It claims to be deeply cleansing, non-drying, and hydrating on the facial skin.
Sure, there's plenty of face wipes out there but do they deliver aromatherapy and truly take off all the grime? This one truly removes any traces of makeup without creating any stinging. Just gently wipe your skin until all makeup is removed. Afterwards, follow with cleansing using facial foam and water (plus facial scrub optional).

Eren McKay Beauty Showroom Opening
Beauty Essentials by Eren McKay is a retail store of rare and top-of-the-line cosmetics, beauty & skin care products from Japan, Korea, Thailand, Italy, UK, Germany, and the United States of America. It's a showcasing Innovative and Non-Traditional International Brands of cosmetics, skin care and beauty products.
Recently, Beauty Essentials has moved its location and had its Beauty Showroom Opening last February 28 located at D3780 Rotary Center Bldg. Roces Ave, corner Mother Ignacia Street, Quezon City.
I feel honored to be invited again in their event (for the 3rd time now!) and of course, I also enjoyed swatching lots of makeups in the store!
Along with the guests who came to witness the Beauty Showroom Opening are lifestyle bloggers and beauty enthusiasts who got delighted not only with the popular imported cosmetics brands, but also with her very own makeup line "Eren McKay" cosmetics. Every products in this collection were expertly chosen by Eren Mckay, a former Mrs. Universe- Philippines beauty queen
Elella Ginseng Therapy skin care line is a permanent staple in Ms. Eren's daily skin essentials. Beauty Essentials is the only place that distributes this brand here in the Philippines so if you are interested in getting them, you know the one and only place to go to!
Elella Aloe Vera Refreshing Gel has been a part of my skincare regimen since discovering it at the Beauty Essentials by Eren McKay store opening at Fisher Mall 2 years ago! I use it as a cooling gel daily and a sleeping pack every night, it's so good!
Now, for the fun part, Eren McKay also has its very own makeup line and they are actually all made with natural & organic ingredients, plus the price is affordable!
Nowadays, there are a lot of local makeup brands popping out here and there but with Eren McKay cosmetics, we are sure that the products manufactured are safe and in good condition. Ms. Eren personally visits the place where all the products are being made, so you see, she is very hands-on with her brand!
Here are the arm swatches that I did using Eren McKay products:
Whoa, wait! Can you believe that these are actually lip & cheek tints? No kidding, they are soooo pigmented, they can pass as sheer lipsticks, only lighter and sheerer! Since they are long-lasting, I had a hard time removing them all in one go, I had to repeat wiping them!
These liquid concealers have a decent natural-looking pigmentation that can effectively cover dark under eyes. They can also cover not-so-dark blemishes and acne spots. They feel lightweight, perfect for oily skin! I wish they have more colors though for more choices!
Eren McKay matte liquid lipsticks for the win! Wow, this is what you can call HIGHLY PIGMENTED! With just one layer of application, you get an even and opaque finish! They apply so smoothly on the lips as well!
They also have blushes, contouring palette,
...and two-way cake foundation powder.
I must say that local brands can now compete with popular imported brands in terms of product quality!
Here are some of the imported brands that are being sold in Beauty Essentials Showroom as well. They have Meishoku, Milani, Gosh, Real Techniques, Jordana, Eco Tools, Ablou, and many more....
We definitely enjoyed this event and I'm personally excited for the journey of Beauty Essentials in the beauty industry!
Of course, beauty bloggers went home with a big smile on their faces because of these products! Here are some of what I got:
I'll be posting a separate blog post with a thorough review of these makeup products very soon so watch out for it!

WHY DO I LOVE CRYSTALS?
Late 2015, I fell in-love with a rose quartz and amethyst charm bracelet. Little did I know that the reason why I got attracted to them is because, at that time, their energy was what I definitely needed. I was suffering from long-term post-partum depression then so my mood was mostly off, I was feeling insecure in most aspects of my life, and I was always feeling stressed. I always wore that bracelet and everything just felt a little bit better. Since then, I started researching about their metaphysical properties, joined several crystal healing enthusiasts groups, and read about them everyday so I could learn more.
For more about the beginning of my crystal journey background, check out my previous blog post HERE.
ROSE QUARTZ and PAMPLEMOUSSE
GLOW with the soothing, nourishing, and therapeutic essences of Rose Quartz and Pamplemousse Face & Body mist.
Rose Quartz, the Stone of Unconditional Love, brings Divine loving energy throughout the aura, It carries the energies of love, peace, healing and comfort.
Pamplemousse or Grapefruit, awakens and harmonizes the body, soul, and mind. It cleanses and purifies; it helps reduce mental and physical fatigue. It increases one's energy level; and it boosts positivity and confidence.
Rose quartz will always be one of my favorite crystals for it helped me cope with the emotional ups and downs of my pregnancy before and rose quartz had always been helpful to me whenever my post-partum depression and anxiety attacks. I owe my sanity to God and the help of healing crystals' energies. I recently bought a rose quartz generator tower so that my whole family's home will benefit from its soothing energy so we will not be overwhelmed by the stressful events of life and so that we will be enveloped by its loving energy to be loving to our own selves and our kids as well. Trust me, almost all women suffering from mommy problems will benefit from having rose quartz with them around. My kids are enchanted by crystals too!
AMETHYST and VERBENA
AWAKEN your senses with the therapeutic essences of Amethyst and Verbena Face and Body mist.
AMETHYST stimulates the higher mind and brings clarity.
VERBENA, known as a sacred herb, is used for purification and protection, much like Amethyst. It is associated with knowledge. It boosts energy and it harmonizes the mind and spirit.
Amethyst is a semi-precious crystal well-known as the traditional February birthstone. Even though one is not born in this month, amethyst can still be used as accessories or a tool for meditation and energy work.
In the metaphysical sense, amethyst is a stone of transformation, healing, and cleansing. I for one use it as a stress reliever for it encourages the inner strength, stills the cluttered mind and enhances intuition.
I usually pair my amethyst with rose quartz so the high vibrations of amethyst can be complimented by the loving energy of rose quartz. The effect will be a balanced heart-and-mind and it greatly helps in decision-making matters in life.
CLEAR QUARTZ and GINGER
UPLIFT your spirit with the therapeutic essences of Clear Quartz and Ginger Face and Body mist.
Clear Quartz is known as a Master Healer. It cleanses, activates, and balances the chakras. It enhances and strengthens the aura. It protects against negative energies.
GINGER stimulates energy. Its scent brings liberation and optimism. It brings a strengthening energy into our aura and it allows our spirituality to soar free and high.
Clear Quartz crystals are the most common and abundant in the world, comprising the largest and most diverse family in the mineral kingdom. Quartz crystal is valued for its piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, by which it can transform mechanical pressure or heat into electromagnetic energy, and vice versa. Its ability to focus, amplify, store and transform energy is used throughout the technology world in ultrasound devices, watches, microphones, radio transmitters and receivers, memory chips in computers and other electronic circuitry.
Clear Quartz is excellent for amplifying the energies of other stones. I usually use Clear Quartz for boosting the energy of my other crystals by puttingthe one in a bowl of different crystals that have compatible metaphysical properties (e.g. rose quartz, amethyst, aventurine, kunzites) sometimes I wear a clear quartz alone to enhance the energy that is already within me and I notice that I feel more energetic, awake, and focused when I do. For ongoing personal energy, carrying Clear Quartz as a tumblestone or touching it as needed is nice for an instant lift. Adding Quartz crystals to bath water also adds a refreshing feeling and making an elixir to drink or to splash on pulse points by soaking Clear Quartz crystals in water from first light to midday boosts the power within water.
ABOUT INDIGO CRYSTALS

Every piece is unique, special and beautiful. They emit loving energies that enhance one's health, wealth and spiritual growth. Nurture them and they will nurture you. Respect their consciousness. They will lead you to a happier life, and to a deeper connection with God. Namaste.

Exfoliate Your Lips to Get Kissable Lips with Skin Potions Honey Glazed Lip Scrub!
Nah, I haven't eaten too much sugar! It's just me doing my everyday lip scrub ritual to keep those puckers soft, smooth, and well-moisturized!
Why do we need to exfoliate our lips?
Dry lips can be uncomfortable and may lead to painful cracks without care. Usually, they are caused by lack of moisture, dehydration, weather, or worse, lack of self-care. Good thing, that problem can be solved without living a dent on your pockets!
Exfoliate those lips gently everyday with Skin Potions Honey Glazed lip scrub, a sweet sugar scrub designed to keep lips smooth and soft.
FAST FACTS: Sloughs off dead skin cells and flaky skin with sugar crystals; moisturizes as it heals and protects with antibacterial honey; nourishes, softens, and conditions with beeswax
PERFECT FOR: Prepping lips before applying matte lipsticks
Skin Potions Honey Glazed Lip Scrub contains:
Sugar Crystals, Honey, Beeswax, Phenoxyethanol, and Flavor
Each pot contains 25 grams of product for only Php 149! The container may look tiny but a little goes a long way so this can last you for a long time - a month or maybe more depending on how many times you need to use it! Budget-friendly indeed!
It takes a li'l bit of effort to keep your lips in tip-top shape but it is easy to do! Personally, my lips don't get dry and chapped even when doing lots of lipsticks and lip tints swatches in a day because of these simple steps which I'll gladly share with you:
3 EASY STEPS:
1. After brushing your teeth, gently brush your lips with your toothbrush to remove dry skin. (Those are the areas that are obvious whenever you wear matte lipsticks, eww! so yes they gotta gooooo!)
2. Using a generous amount, apply the Skin Potions Honey Glazed sugar scrub to your lips in a circular motion. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes and then remove with a warm washcloth.
3. If you feel like you still need more moisture on your lips, apply your favorite lip balm. Remember to bring it anywhere with you so that when it gets cold, you can put ém on right away! Let them be for a minute or two before applying your favorite lipstick!
What I like about this product is that it is made with natural ingredients and that they are safe to be used regularly. You may even lick those lip sugar scrubs off of your lips without harming yourself. They smell and taste yummy too!!! They leave a bit of moisture even after being wiped off.
REMEMBER: do NOT scrub chapped lips especially if they are sore and bleeding. If that is the case, just moisturize well with a lip balm often to make them heal faster.
ABOUT THE BRAND:
Skinpotions is a Filipino beauty brand that offers organic skincare and cosmetics at wallet-friendly prices. Made with natural ingredients, each Skinpotions product aims to enhance your skin and care for your complexion. Expect a soft, radiant, and flawless look.
For people who struggle in life whatever aspect that might be, there were times when we feel unmotivated, depressed, and just negative. While it is alright to accept that such feelings do exist and make us human, it is our responsibility to not get ourselves stuck in that kind of circumstances.
Self-help books like Myke Celis'#bestMEever Of Positivity and Possibilities is nice to have on the bedside table to pick up whenever we are in need of some inspiring quotes to keep us going!
#BestMeEver is an easy-read book full of positive or passive-aggressive quotable quotes that can hit you like a bullet on the heart. Haha! There is one in every page so everything is actually easy to absorb. I know that I could finish reading the whole book in a few hours in just one sitting but I chose not to. I'm the kind of person who, when it comes to self-help books, randomly chooses a page or chapter and let it sink in.
Here are some of the quotes that just got me like, oh maaaaaaaan!
Some of the quotes deliver sooooooo much feels. They may be simple but they will make you think about what you are currently doing in your life. In my case, it reminds me that even though I feel overwhelmed by what I am going through, there is something that I can do about it. I may not be able to control other people or change my environment in an instant but I can choose to change my mindset and energy I exert into something positive that will not benefit just me but also the people around me.
If there is one thing that this book has inspired me to do the most, it would be "finally writing my own book as well, because hey, why not? :)

We blog to inspire! We are the bloggers whose passion never expires! Gathering some of the most active and empowered bloggers in Manila for an afternoon of fun and learning!
Last February 10, 2018, Anne Purificacion (behind the lifestyle blog www.annvassadress.tumblr.com) hosted Ready, Set, Blog 2.0, a project in partnership with Selah Garden Hotel.
Anne Purificacion a.k.a. Annesheyday of http://annvassadress.tumblr.com/
The event room had a relaxing picnic set-up where anyone can comfortably sit on the floor (and the couch behind) while listening to the speakers. Did I mention that the theme of this event was safari/jungle/forest-inspired? Yeah, hence the setup and the outfit of the bloggers who attended!
It is an event made so that Bloggers of Manila (and nearby provinces too) both aspiring and successful will learn more from each other. There were speakers who gave us a lot of tips about blogging, digital marketing, SEO, how to elevate your blog, etc.
Some of the speakers that I was able to see there were John Cueto of larawanatkape.wordpress.com who discussed "Blogging for Beginners and Digital Marketing".
Ross Del Rosario of wazzuppilipinas.com shared a few tips on how to take your blog a notch higher by choosing what kind of niche do you want your blog to have as well as what your brand personality as a blogger is.
Adae Ang of adae2remember.com gave a few tips about Personality Development. She reminded her audience that simply smiling is one of the mot important step to brighten one's day!
Zheyme Manahan of tasteofgoodness.info gave SEO tips for the bloggers so we can make our blog article rank better in Google and Yahoo search engines. I want to book her for coaching someday, hehe!
During the breaktime in between the speakers, the event hosts threw in now and then some games and raffle draw to keep the audience awake! Heyyyy, who doesn't wanna win some prizes, ayt?
What I liked about this event was that the hosts really made all the attendees feel welcome! We each had a certificate of participation! How cool is that?
After the program proper, we all had a dinner outside the lobby. The food was great and the place was cozy and relaxing! The garden is clean, the pool is nice, and the ambiance of the Selah Hotel is indeed family-friendly.
Ready, Set, Blog 2.0 Blogger's Summit was successful because of the hosts Anne Purificacion and Maiko Dungo. It was obvious that everybody went home happily taking with them some fun memories along with the many beautiful items from our sponsors! Haha!
Our deepest gratitude to our sponsors:
