Yes, you read that right. You can wear goodness around your wrist and help trained artisans from Davao City, Mindanao at the same time!
All of that is possible with Kaayo wristlets. These special, handmade Kaayo wristlets are results of a livelihood program that aims to empower individuals through productive diligence.
Kaayo is the Visayan word for goodness, beauty and generosity. And with every Kaayo wristlet bought and worn, not only are you reminded of the power of generosity and goodness but you’re also supporting trained artisans of the 1st District of Davao City. The Dabawenyo artisans were trained under the mentorship of Adorno designer Cuy Legazpi.
Look at this super pretty Kaayo wristlet sent to me by Marga, the beautiful better half of Davao City First District Congressman Karlo Nograles Isn’t it lovely?
Prices for these lovely handmade Kaayo wristlets start at only Php 120.00. Very, very affordable! These Kaayos make for wonderful gifts and can even be considered simple yet eye-catching body jewelry pieces, don’t you think so?
Thank you very much Marga! Will definitely purchase more Kaayo wristlets! <3

Please feel free to share this post and let’s all start a “wear goodness around your wrist” trend!
I received something pretty special while I was in the hospital a few days ago. Something that really cheered me up!
Presenting my first and very own Glamourbox beauty box!
Now before I share with you the contents of this elegant box, a brief backgrounder
Mindanaoan first shared the news about Glamourbox Philippines via this post. Glamourbox, a premium online beauty subscription service in the Philippines, lets you try carefully selected deluxe beauty products before you buy the full sizes. The goodies are sent every month via courier. And all for only Php 595.00 per month! Pretty nice concept, di ba?
I loved the idea of receiving an elegant box with deluxe beauty samples – all carefully curated – every single month. I also liked the fact that one of the founders of Glamourbox beauty box is a fellow Dabawenya and Mindanaoan. You know me – I like to support anything that’s started by a fellow Mindanao entrepreneur
Anyways, without further ado – the contents of my Glamourbox beauty box!
Apologies for the quality of photos. Only used Louis the 48th (the iPad 2 I bought in New York hehe) Here’s a clearer photo of the contents of the Glamourbox November box (from the Glamourbox Philippines website)
My Glamour Box beauty box contained:
1. Eye of Horus mascara (full size, Php 1,290.00)
2. Shiseido Benefiance
3. Shiseido Benefiance Pop Up Mask
4. Yves Rocher Slimming Action concentrate
5. Ofra Cosmetics Lipstick Palette (full size, Php 1,050.00)
6. Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste sample
7. Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua sample
1. Bvlgari Man sample
2. Burberry Sport sample
3. A Php 200 Yves Rocher gift card
Needless to say, I was impressed with the contents of the November box of Glamourbox Philippines. The Eye of Horus mascara is already worth way beyond the Php 595 monthly subscription fee! I can’t wait to try it real soon. Will share a review I also liked the Ofra lipstick palette and the Shiseido products. I also look forward to trying the Yves Rocher product, especially since I know Yves Rocher has effective yet affordable botanical products. The bonuses were a welcome surprise. Gave the perfume for men samples to my brother while I plan to use the Yves Rocher gift card next time I visit the Yves Rocher Centrio Mall branch.
What do you think of the beauty box I received? Pretty interesting, right?
