Food Review: Peperoni Pizzeria, Uptown Mall

So as I mentioned here, we went to Uptown Mall for our 2nd wedding anniversary, we played at Kidzoona and ate at Peperoni Pizzeria. And I said that I would review Peperoni Pizzeria because I fell in love with their food and crew. <3

Before anything else, I would like to commend their staff, good job to Peperoni Pizzeria for hiring friendly and accommodating staff! Two thumbs up!

Now, let me share with you why we chose this restaurant of all the restaurants in Uptown Mall. As I've said in the other post, a lot of restaurants are open already in the said mall. We were supposed to eat at Tim Ho Wan because I've been curious of the hype but we chose not because I thought we could eat there some other time. I saw Peperoni Pizzeria's ad on the ground floor just before we get in the mall, and it got me curious! Well played, Peperoni Pizzeria. Hehe

Creative ceiling decor!
Wasn't able to take a photo of the whole interior but it's really nice and well lit
When we found it, I asked one of the crew by the door if there are available seats inside, apparently it was jam-packed as it was around 7 in the evening! Dinner time of everyone! Hehe! He politely told us that we could sit outside for a while until there would be available seats. He gave us the menu, which was really cute and creative. Ugh bummer I forgot to take a photo of it!

I find it so cute they give kids these cute wares! My little girl sure did enjoy her meal with these.

love their parmesan cheese! Hehe! Bago pa lang so hindi pa mahirap mag-shake para lumabas yung cheese
Love this wall art!
I really like restaurants that have open kitchen
Amatriciana | P 430.00
The 3 of us loved their pasta! I was actually craving some pasta from CPK (lol sorry), so I tried to find something that's quite similar to it. This wasn't close to it but Amatriciana caught my attention on their menu, and so that's what we ordered. Surprisingly, we all loved it. Maco approves of this pasta dish as well! It was really savory, the sweetness from the bacon balances the sourness from the tomato sauce. So sorry I'm not good with describing food. I'm just good at eating them and saying it's delicious and you should try it! Btw, you could choose whether you'd like your paste be penne, spaghetti, or fettuccini.

Anyway, one of the crew said their pasta dishes were good for 2, but IDK why, it's not enough for my husband and I. Lol! We're big eaters so maybe that's why. And plus Maco, yeah maybe because of Maco. (sinisi pa ang bata) Lol
Green Salad | P 220.00
Nothing special with the salad. Just greens with balsamic vinaigrette. Lol I feel such a foodie saying that! Hahaha! Anyway, I liked it even though not much was happening on this dish. I should've ordered their spicy wings so my husband would also enjoy. Or the chicken salad. Just trying to be healthy. Haha kidding!

My little girl enjoying her pasta!
We ordered a large sized pizza (P 545.00). You could have 2 flavors in 1 pizza, just like we did! 
I chose this though I wish there were more tomatoes and basil. I like that you could really taste the mozzarella! As much as I like the crusts on pizzas, on this one though, I hope the crust was smaller. We just find the crust to big for a thin pizza.

Bacon Miele
This one was what my husband chose. At first I didn't like it because of it's sweetness from the honey, but after that first bite, it was quite delicious. I was just hoping for a crispier bacon, but even though the bacon wasn't crispy, it was still delish! My little girl loved this one as well!

Overall verdict is that I love it. I love their food, their staff, their interiors. I love it! I know the price is quite higher than what we'd usually spend on when we eat out, but it was fine, it was our anniversary after all. A little splurging for a special day wouldn't be too bad. ;)

Tupperware Brands KIDS PLUS, MOM PLUS Review + BABY CARE PLUS Giveaway! [CLOSED]

Took me quite a while to share my thoughts about these Tupperware Brands - Baby Care Plus, Kids Plus, and Mom Plus as I've been trying on their Mom Plus Stretch mark cream.

So I received these products a couple of weeks back. I was excited and so was my little girl! I hurriedly smelled the Kids Plus shampoos, bath soap and cologne. I actually didn't like it at first because I thought it was too strong.

We later on tried it to my little girl, the shampoo and bath. It has quite a strong fruity smell from the bottle but when you poured it on your hand, it wasn't that strong. It was my husband who bathe Maco when we tried to use it for the first time. He said he liked it because with just one pump it covered my little girl's whole body already. It foams up pretty well, so if you're the type of mom who doesn't like foamy wash for your little one, I don't think this is for you. But we, especially my little girl, love 'em bubbles so yay for us! :)
Kids Plus Bath, Shampoo, Lotion, Cologne, Powder
Mom Plus Ultra Moisturizing Bar, Soothing Relief Bar, Stretch Mark Cream
We also like the smell after my little girl's bath, she smells fresh and fruity (I'm not really a fan of fruity smells, but this one would pass as it was not too strong, though when you smell it direct from the bottle, it really comes out strong). For the longevity, it lasts long. We usually bathe Maco at night, before she goes to sleep. So it is given that in the morning, she still smells fruity/fresh as she doesn't do much while she was sleeping (well duh), meaning no pawis and all. I noticed that the fruity smell fades when it's in the late afternoon already, though she doesn't smell unpleasant -the fruity smell just faded. So it was fine with us.

Main reason why this review took a while was because I tested the Mom Plus Stretch Mark Cream. And momma, does it work!! I was actually surprised that it works. Hehe! I didn't took a before photo of my tyan and I don't want to post either, so I'll just tell you mommas what's up. I've been using it for more than a week already, and I noticed that my stretch marks lightened! Seriously. I'm not exaggerating. I don't really know how to explain this, but the skin kind of firmed, not totally yet, well I'm not sure if it would but it lightened my stretch marks so I'm hoping it would! I just love the product!

I use the Mom Plus Stretch Mark Cream every night after I took my bath, and then squeeze a small amount on the fingers and lather it on the affected areas in circular motion. And yaaasss, it's working momma! I think I can pull off a bikini already for next year's summer, but I need to lose some weight first! Hahaha!

Now, let's have a giveaway, Mommas!!!
