Although food seems to be the most popular choice of quarantine-born businesses for celebs and other personalities, there are those who took it a step further and explored other ventures. 

Charisse Tinio, for instance, didn't stop with her yummy ensaymada business. She also set up Mrs. Herbs PH (@mrsherbsph) to spruce up life at home (gardening is chic these days!) while putting health and hygiene first by selling Speedster Car Care Cleaner and Spritz & Go leather shoe and bag cleaner. 

 La Belle Fete's Ycoy Sitchon, an expert at events planning and styling, has also found ways to circumvent restrictions brought about by quarantine. After all, the pandemic might have hit the breaks on the events industry, but with creativity and perseverance came a solution. La Belle Fete now organizes home-based parties and families, couples, parents, and other individuals can continue to celebrate special milestones, pretty setups included, while keeping safe.

The same goes for Gideon Hermosa, a florist and event stylist, who often works with Ycoy and her team.
