Botanika Nature Residences Brings Generosity Of Space To Condo Living


In this increasingly crowded metropolis that we live in, freedom of space has become a rare commodity. There is, however, a unique luxury condominium development that marries ease and convenience to give city dwellers the feeling that they are in a subdivision instead of a high-rise: Botanika Nature Residences by Filigree, the new gold standard in luxury real estate today. 




Rising on a 1.55-hectare prime property within a secluded section of the progressive Filinvest City in Alabang, Botanika Nature Residences features a bioclimactic architecture from the creative minds of Architecture International and Leandro V. Locsin Partners. It is a private enclave with three mid-rise, low-density condominium buildings set on varying topography and bound together by lots of greenery.

“It is the whole idea that it is a condominium unit, but there is this village quality, the opportunity to bump into your neighbors to share space, to interact this way if you want to,” says Andy Locsin of Leandro V. Locsin Partners, Botanika’s Architect of Record.

The abundance in space is reflected in Botanika’s modern and generously-sized residential units, each with a balcony, that reinforces the feeling of exclusive village living.

Now ready for occupancy, Botanika Tower 1 has a variety of finely crafted units with a minimum of two bedrooms. All the units are designed to anticipate their future owners’ distinctive lifestyles.

The two-bedroom deluxe unit is perfect for those with varied pursuits and passions—art, travel, sports, or business. With 123 to 129 square meters of space, it can be a weekend sanctuary, a cozy and intimate pied-à-terre. The two-bedroom premier, 135 to 143 square meters, is ideal for a young couple or a new family, allowing for hours of bonding and strengthening family ties. The three-bedroom premier is best for a growing family. With up to 218 square meters of space, there is more space to enjoy. For the few who like grander accommodations, the Garden unit offers spaces from 213 to 327 square meters, while the penthouse unit is divided into spaces from 135 to 343 square meters.
 
Aside from the luxury of space, what sets Botanika apart is structure and location. Residents enjoy utmost exclusivity and the assurance that their view will remain unobstructed, thanks to a carefully masterplanned layout and sheltered ambiance.

“Botanika is a modern rendition of a grand stately home in a mid-rise development to let residents indulge in luxurious breathing space, a rarity today,” says Filigree head Kate Ilagan.

“Every kid dreams of becoming a champ. That’s why the MILO-FCB Road to Barcelona Philippines Camp is back to provide kids the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train with youth coaches from FC Barcelona. We’ve taken this year’s invitational camp to the Visayas to share the program witheven more children in the region, because we believe that theseexperiences can encourage them to pursue their passion for the sport and nourish their ambitions,” said Willy de Ocampo, Vice President, Nestle Philippines, Inc.

The expert panel composed of PFF representatives and FCB coaches will be in charge in shortlisting the most deserving athletes who will fly to Spain, where one slot in the delegation will be all-expense paid by MILO Philippines.

Similar to the maiden program, the 2018 delegation will take part in a nine-day training camp and ultimate experience in FCB’s hallowed grounds in Camp Nou, Barcelona. The Philippine team will be among their peers from other MILO markets which incude Australia, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Jamaica, New Zealand, Panama, Singapore, Tahiti, Thailand, and Vietnam. Their stay will be filled with specialactivitiesthat will hone their skills, encourage them to make new friends, explore scenic heritage locations, most importantly, learn how to play with HEART—the Barca way.

MILO Philippines Consumer Marketing Manager Robbie de Vera shares his excitement for year two of the four-year partnership, “MILO is very excited and honored to continue its advocacy to get more kids into sports and help advancePhilippine football with FC Barcelona. Our goal for this year is to further enrich the ‘Road to Barcelona’ experience by reaching more Filipino kids and reinforcing the values that encourage more kids to dream big and become champions in life.”

Maximize Your Lip And Cheek Tint For A Healthy And Natural Look


If there’s one makeup product that can easily give you that instant glow, it’s the popular lip and cheek tint. Even better, Ever Bilena has made the product much easier to apply with the new EB Lip and Cheek Roller (P125).

The country’s leading makeup brand offers tips on how to maximize the EB Lip and Cheek Roller like a professional:

Bring and use it everywhere. EB Lip and Cheek Roller is convenient to use anytime, anywhere as it comes in roller form to avoid messy application. It can also be your ‘make-up-on-the-go’ because it can fit in your small bags and pouches.







Use it for your lips. Achieve healthy-looking lips by prepping with a lip exfoliation product to remove dry skin. You can also swipe gloss over lips or blend with moisturizer to ensure that your lips are soft and smooth the whole day. Make sure your lips are clean and dry before applying the tint. For a more fun and playful look, try the gradient lip. Dab the EB Lip and Cheek Roller at the center of your lips then smack them together to blend the color towards the edges. Top with your concealer or foundation and add more tint to the center if the color is too light. With clean fingers or a brush, blend the edges to soften the look.  

Blush for your cheeks. EB Lip and Cheek Roller is a water-based product than can easily dry upon application. To avoid patchy or uneven application, roll the product first on the back of your clean hand. Using your index, middle and ring fingers together (Note: Wash your hands before doing this  and wipe roller clean after every use), dab tint from your hand to your cheeks then blend upwards from apples of cheeks towards hairline for a more natural flushed look. You can also pat some over the bridge of the nose for the “drunk blush” look.

Tint for your eyes. EB Lip and Cheek Roller works as an eyeshadow too! For a monochromatic look, dab your clean ring finger on your preferred tint shade and then lightly pat and blend it on your eyelids. Be sure to work fast as it dries easily. For more depth, play around with the different shades. Use the lightest pink shade all over the eyelids as a transitional color and then apply the darker pink shade from the outer corner of the lids, blending inwards for a more seamless makeup look.

Care for your tint. EB Lip and Cheek Roller is FDA-approved. It is also Paraben-free, fragrance- and flavor-free. To maintain its quality, store your roller tints in a cool, clean and dry place. Also, it is best to avoid sharing roller tints for hygienic reasons.

The EB Lip and Cheek Roller is available in Uptown Red, Night Berry and Red to Go. New shades have also been developed for other skin tones – Mandarin Muse, Toast of New York, Whipped Blush, Coral Crush and Red Bomb.

The EB Lip and Cheek Roller is available at any Ever Bilena counter in leading supermarkets, drugstores, convenience stores and department stores nationwide.
