Sugar Rush

Okay, in one of my posts earlier this year I said I was going to have a haircut. Well, I did. But it wasn't anything too dramatic of a change. In fact, I can't see any change at all! Before I went out to go to the salon I initially wanted short hair again. I miss how easy it is to manage short hair and how so much younger it made me look. But when I got to the salon I chickened out. I was not ready to part with my hair yet.

Polka Dots Over Hearts

I know, another super late post. This is what I wore on Valentine's Day. It's a super comfortable outfit because I had to run errands for my sister that day but I still wanted to wear something girly so here is what I ended up wearing.

Nostalgia in the Uplands

It's already been a week but I can still feel the cool mountain breeze and the sound of the streets of Baguio. That place will forever hold a special place in my heart.

I once lived in that city due to studies. It's been five years already since I left that place but I can still vividly picture special memories I shared with that place. I used to frequent the night markets and walk around the city without feeling tired and just savoring every moment of it.

Product Review: Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack

I have professed my love for Etude House products ever since I started blogging and I still continue to explore as they offer a wide range of products that are easy on the budget. I am most of the time not disappointed with everything that I purchase. So here is another product review that I hope most of you will find helpful of my new favorite product from Etude House, the Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack.

Initially, I wanted to get the treatment instead of the moist pack because I have read a ton of great reviews about it plus it is cheaper than the moist pack. But when I asked the SA the difference between the two, she said that the former is more for normal hair that needs a bit of pampering while the latter is for dry and damaged hair due to chemical treatments. When I heard that, I knew I had to get the moist pack instead though I would have to spend 50 Php (a little over a dollar) more but I think I made the right decision.

How To: Packing Light for a Road Trip

My family and I will be going on a weekend road trip to Baguio for a quick vacation. I am really excited to go back there 'coz it's been ages since I went there. I have a lot of memories in that place, good and bad, so I am really ecstatic when my mom told we would spend the weekend there. Yehey! :D

Packing light was never really my thing way back in College. Y'all probably know by now that I took up Geography and we frequently go out of town and do excursions. I used to carry a ton of things with me because I always like to be prepared. I pack a ton of clothes, undergarments, extra stuff that I always end up with a big wheeled bag even if it's just an overnight trip. Yes, it was a hassle because my luggage would always be too heavy for me to carry but it made feel fulfilled and satisfied knowing that I am prepared no matter what happens. But then, it is always such a waste of my clothes, space in my bag, and being too heavy is a waste of energy I could use for important tasks. Waste of clothes because they will end up mixing with my used ones so I always have to wash all clothes even if I didn't wear them. Waste of space because it could have been used for pasalubong items instead. So over the past years that we've been going on road trips I have learned quite a few things on how I can start packing lighter and maximize the space of my luggage.

The Cultural Show

We all have our reasons for wanting to be a different person if we're given the opportunity, but for me, I am happy with who I am especially that I am a Filipino. I know some of you, especially my international readers, might think of my country as underdeveloped, full of corruption, poor and has the worst airport in the world. It is true by the way, but there is so much more to this country than all the bad things we get to hear on the news. The good things about my country is always underrated and are hardly recognized. Though I am proud to be who I am, it still bothers me every time I think of things that makes me proud aside from the beautiful beaches, rich biodiversity and picturesque places.
