CBTL Giving Journal 2015


Prior to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, I have never been much of a coffee fan. But come exam weeks when I can't control my natural narcoleptic tendencies that I have to resort to coffee to pass my tests. Since then, CBTL has been my favorite hang-out, blog-drafting and exam-studying place. And this coming 2015, I'm proud to say I'm enlisting myself to a year of "OVERFLOW" with the help of their Giving Journal. With the journal, I'm going to brew my best year!


Honestly speaking, I've never stuck with a planner for more than 3 months, but The Giving Journal really makes me wanna give it a try. This year, the journal centralizes on helping us create the best versions of ourselves, creating overflows in all areas of our life, all for the sake of brewing our best year. In 2014, I can't say that I've properly prioritized everything in my life, I am not satisfied by my self and wish I could've chosen differently in many circumstances. Next year, I want to be more organized toward my goals and less impulsive with my choices,


The interiors are amazing. It's very conducive to journalization (yeah, that's a thing). These shots I took don't even begin to cover the quality and craftsmanship of each page. The theme is clear and the designs are congruent. It motivates me to keep on writing entries upon entries when the  new year hasn't even started yet. The journals are either brown, green, lavender or orange. Each color has a corresponding icon on the cover: brown is coffee, green is tea, lavender is Ice Blended and orange has all three icons in one circle.


I personally want to benefit from what the journal says, "... help you thrive and live in abundance when it comes to developing personal fulfillment and growth, strong relationships, and a joyful spirituality." This is probably the best feature of the journal. Sure, the design is top class but what really won me over is the journal's holistic approach to life planning. It helps you set personal, professional, health, giving, financial and spiritual goals. Every week, it offers some really good encouragement at the bottom of the notes page. It's obvious that a lot of time and effort was really spent into making this journal (really, MY DREAM JOURNAL) a reality.


Not only does Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf bring the spirit of The Giving Journal to loyal customers, they also bring it to life through partnerships with various social organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Real LIFE Foundation. As we all know, Habitat helps build and rebuild communities all over the Philippines. As a matter of fact, I've volunteered for them before because of Sendong. Real LIFE, on the other hand, provide material and financial assistance to deserving scholars of the secondary and tertiary levels. The scholarships are supplemented by LIFE coaching. This touches a special place in my heart since my sister also volunteers as a life mentor for a local NGO that encourages principles and is against immorality and drugs among high school and college students. I think it's wonderful that CBTL wants to inspire the community to follow their passions, nourish and grow talents, never stop learning and foster meaningful relationships.


So at this point, I might be successful in persuading you to get The Giving Journal for yourself. In that case, you should read the general mechanics right here:

1. A minimum single-receipt purchase of a regular or large sized Original Ice Blended®, Espresso/Coffee-based, or Tea-based Beverage, Frozen Swirl or CBTL™ capsules qualifies a customer to get a stamp card.
2. Each card consists of 12 circles with corresponding purchased drink/item assignments. These are as follows:
            a. (1) Original Ice Blended® (any flavor, regular or large)
            b. (1) Tea Latte (any flavor, regular or large)
            c. (1) Espresso/Coffee-based Beverage (any flavor, double, regular or large)
            d. (1) Holiday Featured Beverage (Winter Dream Tea Latte or Red Velvet, regular or large)
           e. Any (8) Original Ice Blended®, Espresso/Coffee-based or Tea-based Beverages, or Frozen Swirl (any flavor, double, regular or large)
                        • (1) Box of CBTL™ capsules (any flavor) = 2 stamps
                   • (1) CBTL™ Single Serve Beverage System (Kaldi, Contata and or Desto) purchase automatically allows the customer to claim his/her 2015 Giving Journal
3. Stamp card must always be presented UPON PURCHASE so that a circle may be stamped whenever its corresponding product assignment is purchased.
4. Once all 12 circles are stamped and completed IN ONE STAMP CARD, customer will be able to claim The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® 2015 Giving Journal at any The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® branch. Combining of stamps cards is not allowed.
5. The completed stamp card should be presented and surrendered to the branch where The Giving Journal will be claimed.
6. Not valid in conjunction with other promos.
7. Promo period is from October 25, 2014 to January 11, 2015.
8. Giving Journals may be claimed beginning October 25, 2014 until 60 days after the promo has ended.

I'm always up for some Ice Blended so if you're by your lonesome or having trouble completing the 12 stamps, I'm only an SMS away :)
