Given the situation these days, Filipinos can’t help but give online shopping a try and enjoy its advantages. Lazada is among their preferred e-commerce destinations.

“All the legit and authentic brands are here. I trust this platform because I know that our shopping experience is safe,” said Bea. “We can definitely shop safely from home. If you’re really planning to do your early Christmas shopping, now is the time.”

Bea looked back on the first item she bought from Lazada. It was a makeshift tent, “where I could change clothes whenever I’m taping,” said she. “Minsan kasi there are locations na walang changing room talaga na maayos. That’s the first thing I bought from Lazada and it came on time. You can just fold it and put it in your bag.”

Aside from the makeshift tent, Bea has added to cart items that range from camera and painting stuff, kitchen ware, fashion items to gadgets. She will definitely add tin ware and table ware on her shopping list this Christmas “because I’ll be entertaining a lot of people at home and I’ll be cooking a lot as well. So siguro yun din ang ibibigay ko kay mama.”

Bea added that “I think even when we’re saving, we shouldn’t lose the spirit of giving this Holiday season.” There are ways that Filipinos can still give their family and friends presents and value their hard-earned money. They can avail deals and exclusive offers from platforms like Lazada. “You can still shop, but be smart about it,” said she. “When we add to cart something, we have time to think about it.”

Bea also shared that her forms of escape from the hurly-burly of city life, or away from the klieg lights, are watching movies and series, and reading books. But her ultimate relaxation is going to her mother’s farm in Zambales.

“When I go there, I feel recharged and I feel rejuvenated, as in relax lang ako dun,” said Bea, who is a self-confessed plantita. She likes to collect and take care of plants. The actress is also into organizing things.

When time comes that everybody can easily travel abroad, Bea, who recently went on a US trip with new love Dominic Roque, wants to visit Iceland and Switzerland. Yes, Bea knows how to work hard and stop and smell the roses.
