the solti soul

I have changed my website domain from 3 years of vanillaaddiction.com to thesoltisoul.com ☼

I thought, why change my content and not the title? So, after a long and thoughtful process, I decided on the solti soul.

I enjoy my lifestyle and I breathe my creation – SOLTI Activewear. For those of you who don’t know, SOLTI is a conscious brand that is dedicated to helping the environment by recovering and using waste fabrics to create locally handmade fashion for the active lifestyle. It’s not just about living a cruelty-free life, it’s about making myself and the world I live in a better place.

I know that we are on this planet for deeper and more spiritual reasons that I can’t even explain, but we are here breathing, walking, eating, and living on this planet like we own it, as well as all the other creatures we’re supposed to share this planet with, and that is what I hope to change. Life is about sharing and giving love and care to those in need, and those who cannot speak for themselves. Life is about giving to others and to the world, and not about destroying it and it’s creatures.

the solti soul is me; the person who will fight to bring out more compassion in this world, and the woman behind SOLTI Activewear.

I hope you follow my journey and get inspired to live a life without harm, cruelty or discrimination.

Energy is only borrowed, one day we will have to give it back. ❤

Obsessed with all these Murad skincare products and have been using their creams for years! Murad uses only the best and clinically proven ingredients for your skin.

I particularly love wearing the Invisiblur™ Perfecting Shield with SPF 30 without or under makeup (plus it smells amazing!), and with my acne prone skin, the Instamatte™ Oil-Control Mask works wonders! I can’t wait to try out the Hydro-Dynamic® Quenching Essence!

You can get all these Murad products and more in Rustan’s The Beauty Source at the 1st level of Rustan’s Ayala, Cebu ♡

Antioxidant Tablea Cookies 


Adjust for your taste:

  • Heat about 1 cup of tablea in a saucepan. Do not boil.
  • Remove from saucepan into a heat proof bowl
  • Add maple syrup or agave syrup
  • Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Pour in 1 cup of chocolate almond milk
  • Stir well
  • Smear vegetable oil onto flat tray or plate and shape tablea into thin circles
  • Add chopped almonds, dried cranberries, chia seeds and/or other ingredients you’d like and push down so it sticks to the chocolate
  • Put into fridge for 1 hour to harden

Enjoy! (Great with tea or coffee!)
