The Laziest Diet... EVER!

Coco Love

There's something about the smell of coconut oil and coconuts that makes me go... nuts. It must be the way it transports me to instant vacation mode. Brings me that island and beach feel anywhere I may be. Currently, I used Marks & Spencer's Coconut Milk Body Wash and body lotion. At the end of the day, slathering the Coco Lotion makes me feel like I'm on a beach break, cozying up in a hotel room, ready to crash after a long days swim and sun session.

On my last trip to Manila, I got my bottle of coco oil in Echo Store in Podium. I snapped photos of the store immediately! Funny how some stores are hesitant for people to take photos of their displays. Surprisingly, the friendly staff allowed me. I had to clarify that I was going to blog about this store one day (it is a bit late though!).

 For only P300, I got Heaven's Cure Coconut Oil. Did you know Coconut oil is best stored in glass bottles?  Coco oil also heals and prevent a lot of diseases. It helps lower blood pressure, promotes weight loss, clears up skin, and can even help Alzheimer patients! Personally, I use it for my skin, and throw a few spoon fulls for my morning breakfast shake for over all health.

See the trash basket behind the bottle? I forgot how much it was but I loved it too! The other amazing part of this store is the packaging. Gone are the days of plastic bags. My coco oil was wrapped in this:

A recycled map of the Philippines! How apt! This green store sells all Philippine made green products. The owners help aid heal the earth, AND help the Philippine economy as well. Isn't that just great! Business with a heart!

 I visited the Echo Store in the ground level in Podium, but they do have their main store in Serendra. Check it out at
