Lucy’s secrets to sustaining youth... Revealed!

Doing a TV show, being a mom, wife and now a congresswoman, Lucy Torres-Gomez still stays healthy and beautiful even at her Somatopausal age,  that stage which begins in your late 20s, when the physical signs of aging start to show, and one’s vigor and vitality also begin to deteriorate.

Emotionally you sweat the small stuff less, you are less hard on yourself.  You can be deliciously unapologetic about your choices.  But while women my age are past the insecurities of youth, we are also faced with the realities of aging,” Lucy says.

Lucy never misses taking her vitamins and supplements.  In fact, she says, her hectic schedule has even prompted her to take the multivitamin supplement, Immuvit.

Immuvit is my health partner, especially now that my schedule is more hectic.  I find it convenient because you just take it daily, and you already and reap the benefits of the good it does for your optimum health and looks,” she says.
Immuvit is the only multivitamin supplement in the market that contains the powerful combination of CoQ10 and two ginsengs—Korean RPC Ginseng and Siberian Ginseng. CoQ10 is an antioxidant that helps protect the body against the damages caused by free radicals. It helps maintain cell growth and maintenance as well as boost the immune system. Korean RPC Ginseng and Siberian Ginseng, meanwhile, help revitalize the body and increase its resistance and fatigue.

As Lucy herself acknowledges, feeling good is as vital as looking good, she feels as energized as ever, and as most of us may observe, as youthful-looking, too.

These lifestyle choices will be all for naught, though, if one does not keep one’s priorities in perspective.  Having a good attitude towards life, after all, is as important as the vitamins, food, and physical activities that one takes on.

I need to get my daily solar dose, I need a Adtel Solar Kit!

Electricity is what I consider the most important necessity because without it, what would the world be?

And as a kid who grew in electric dreams, the need for power would be a must. As of now, I do have gadgets I would take along with me. Also Since I live by myself, the need for me to save on money is very crucial as the savings I can make will help me and my family.

I am currently studying engineering because I want to invent something and be revolutionary. It is complicated that is why for doing research and studies, again electricity is a friend I can rely on. 

I really want to have a solar panel kit with me so I could use it for a lot of things. One of which is to harness the bright sunlight that can still be felt in the afternoon. I would also like to use this when I go to my moms place in La Union, where they can use it as well.

Adtel is one company that offers solar kits for consumers, which is one of the very few companies that offer this 'cool' tool. They currently have a solar home kit  that includes a control box and a 2W LED lamp and can power a three-volt radio and a cellphone charger. I hope to try this one so that it would convert the nasty heat and turn it into beneficial energy. I hope to see more solar powered lights and machines so we would also help in saving mother earth with clean power.

Blah blah blogs is Major Major back!

             Esquire – In the original Wall Street, the part of Darien Taylor, Bud Fox’s (Charlie Sheen) girlfriend and Gekko’s ex “was not well developed.”  Michael Douglas who plays Gekko (“Wall Street 1 and 2”) would later say that Daryl Hannah’s casting caused problems. Hannah wasn’t happy playing the materialistic social climber, and director Oliver Stone’s tough approach to her performance upset her.  While Douglas bagged an Oscar for his performance, Hannah won a Razzie for worst Supporting Actress. 
            In the new movie, “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” which opens worldwide this September, Oscar-nominated Cary Mulligan plays Winnie, Gordon Gekko’s estranged daughter and girlfriend of Shia LaBeouf’s Jake Moore.

REEL DEAL Movies and Television: Vampires Suck Spotlight

 He’s über-zealous in buffing up – that’s because Chris Riggi is playing Jacob in the upcoming comedy “Vampires Suck” inspired by the cult teen phenomenon on vampires and falling in love.  Riggi’s Jacob immediately notices Becca (Jenn Proske), the new girl in town but Becca notices Edward Sullen (Matt Lanter) more.  As Jacob persuades Becca not to associate with the Sullens, he is at the same time undergoing a strange transformation of his own that has him peeing on hydrants, chasing stray cats and sporting a wolf tail from the seat of his pants.
            As Jacob’s name is synonymous with a perfect-carved bod, Riggi has displayed an intense dedication in working out and has definitely achieved tremendous results – such that the audience will be treated to a better-looking Jacob version in the movie.  Riggi earned mainstream consciousness in his recurring role as Scott in the hit television series “Gossip Girl.”  Coming from an artistic family plus his experience on roles from television and theater, producer Peter Safran did not look any further when Riggi submitted his audition cd.  “Fans of the genre know that six-pack-abs are a werewolf’s most important physical trait, and by the time principal photography began he was in peak physical condition and had packed on twelve pounds of pure muscle,” producer Peter Safran notes. 
Riggi adds:  “To play a werewolf fans would have fun with, I had to be in peak physical condition. I had only a little more than a month to prepare for the role, so I began an intense training period. The hardest thing was giving up the foods I enjoy. It felt like I was only eating wood chips and cardboard. But the role required a specific look. It was tiring but I was really happy with the results.”
The role of the werewolf also required Riggi to undergo a time-consuming make-up process that included complex prosthetic devices. “Initially, it took five hours to apply all the make-up and prosthetics but that time was greatly reduced as we got accustomed to the process,” Riggi explains. “It takes a certain amount of concentration to focus on the role and be prepared to go in front of the camera with that kind of preparation. Plus I had to do sets of dumbbell curls while all that was going on. It was a new experience for me.”
             “Vampires Suck” opens August 25 in theaters from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Vampires SUCK!


There’s a new Bella in town - a.k.a. Becca in the upcoming spoof comedy “Vampires Suck” from geniuses Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer who gave us the laugh-out loud parodies “Scary Movie,” “Date Movie” and “Meet the Spartans.”

Becca, played by Jenn Proske stars in the all-tangled love triangle opposite Matt Lanter , Chris Riggi and Ken Jeong (“Hangover”). In a recent interview with, Proske revealed that she’s Team Edward but she still has strong feelings for Jacob. “I kind of feel a little bit of pressure because I play Becca, the Bella character. Plus, Matt Lanter who plays Edward looks good on set! Matt was amazing. I had never been on camera before and was nervous that whoever I was working with would judge me. He was so willing to teach me tips and was so friendly. We hang out all the time but we’re just friends,” Proske gushes.

Jenn definitely nailed every bit of Bella’s character such that after one major audition, she immediately got called in for “Vampires Suck.” This is by far her first major audition after graduating from Boston University at 2009, though Jenn relates that she was I originally got called in for Alice Cullen, but knew that she wasn’t quite right for the role. “I knew I felt the Kristen Stewart role more so I had to go in 7 or 8 times,” recalls Jenn.

Asked what’s in store for the Twilight fans and Twi-haters in “Vampires Suck” – “There’s something for everyone in this movie! Everything is done in a very funny way and I think it’s hysterical!” Jen says.

“Vampires Suck” opens August 25 in theaters from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
