Comfortable Dormitory / Bed Space Along EDSA Mandaluyong

I've been commuting for more than 10 years now, and owning a condominium unit had been playing in my mind for the longest time. 

I had been quite hesitant, though, because I don't think my earnings from my freelance jobs are enough for this cost of living. Aside from the unit rental, there's also the kuryente at tubig bills that I have to consider. I can live without my cable TV and with minimal furnishings (hehe), but as a social media girl, I also have to pay for my internet!

So here's where SPACE EDSA comes in. Redefining dormitory living, Space EDSA is designed to help as much Filipinos to have the privilege to enjoy taking one ride or walk to work. The idea is to allow each Spacer to live near where they want to be.

Bohol Takeover with #NiveaSunProtects Part 2

I actually just read this line on Facebook via Bo Sanchez's page, and thought it's worth sharing:

Live your life today in a way that when you're 83, 
you can look back and smile with gratitude and joy.

During the Nivea Sun Protects launch in Bohol, this can go in two ways. First is to live all out and just do what you want to do even when you're unsure / scared / you feel you're not good enough.

Bohol Takeover with #NiveaSunProtects Part 1

The gang left Manila early January 26 with lots of sunshine. I was even wearing my super-oversized sunnies, which I bought from FLY Shades just for this trip. We were headed to Bohol to experience the Nivea Sun line. Ang saya diba!

This event was something my whole blog barkada (Clingies) was looking forward to since late last year because sa wakas, nakumpleto din kami sa out-of-town! It was also my first time in Bohol.

What's New With TOMS

Summer is here! So even with all the minimalism going on, I can't help but wear this overly printed hippie dress when we visited Sonya's Garden for my birthday. To balance out this girly number, I paired it with my comfortable gray brogues from TOMS.

Dress - H&M | Shoes - TOMS

AVON Cherish: In Celebration Of All Women

AVON Philippines sent me a birthday bouquet yesterday (thank you!). These things made me appreciate my work more and more, knowing that even brand partners I have collaborated with remembered a personal occasion. These thoughtfulness I will cherish forever!

Busy Girls Deserve #LuxNights

I've always been multihyphenate in a way that I want to maximize my time and do what I can do now. 

In college, I was a student-writer-entrepreneur (I wrote for magazines, and also started with my accessories business). Few years ago I had Anagon accessories business (and bazaar stints) and this blog, plus I organize Bloggers United. Now I am also a school club moderator!

I really admire women who can do more with their days (allergic ata ako sa tamad, haha). But of course, with all the hard work, for me, busy girls very much deserve Lux Nights!

Humans Of Makati

I like Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York. It's one of my long-time most shared and followed Facebook page that I will never get tired of. I think it's a unique way of showcasing portrait photography - "with a heart" and soul. HONY has the perfect formula: Relatable stories, tidbits that inspire me, and thoughts that provoke and move. 

Adapting the concept to the local setting, I find Humans of Makati a genius. Bat di ko naisip to level. Haha!

Modest Girl: Swimwear Ideas for the Conservative Girls Like Me (hehe)

Hello, fresh from Bohol!

It's my first beach trip for the year, and I am happy to have spent it with my complete blog barkada for Nivea's Sun Protects launch. 

Health Benefits + How to tell if the Organique Acai Premium Blend is Legit

As with anything, I am very cautious of imitations. Nothing beats the original when it comes to quality. What more when we're talking about health products?

Organique Acai Premium blend has been in the global market since 2009. And through the years, several products has imitated Organique Acai and how it looks in efforts to lure the unknowing customer to buying substandard acai berry products.


Penshoppe is super ready for summer!

Rexona: The New Pinoy Mover & MotionSense Technology

If for anything, the greatest lesson I learned in my 30 years of existence is to KEEP ON MOVING. It's hard when you're stuck, and even harder for your loved ones and people around you to see you in a constant state. 

JaDine for SM Milanos and SM Parisian

Days before the launch, I heard from one of my Viber groups that it's going to be James Reid and Nadine Lustre. I got extra excited because, recently, I've become a JaDine convert. It's all because of one of my students, haha! Plus, they are just really nice to look at!

Make Your Own Magnum at SM Mall of Asia

I miss the Magnum Manila store in SM Aura. I remembered my attempt to go there one last time with @krissyfied, but traffic was so bad that day we ended up having dinner in Makati nalang.

Good news, though, Magnum Manila recently just opened their new store at the Mall of Asia (right across Uniqlo). I think this is just perfect, since I'm feeling summer more and more the past days (huhu, bye sweaters and coats!).

Paulo Avelino for Avon Black Suede

 Avon, the number one fragrance brand in the Philippines, proudly welcomes Paulo Avelino as the new ambassador for one of its most-loved fragrances, Black Suede. The collection of timeless, must-have scents are perfect for men like Paulo who want to exude irresistible confidence.

Fun Run with Saucony Philippines

I had my first run for the year yesterday at my home base in Filinvest Alabang. 

This is also my first run since 2011, something I've avoided because 
a) Runs are usually held supersuper early in the morning, 
and b) I feel that I am not prepared... but when will we ever be prepared, anyway?

So yesterday, I had no excuse! Venue is just 5 minutes away from home, and I've been going to the gym to hit the cross-training machine at least once a week! I thought the challenge is worth the try.

Hong Kong Day 5: Disneyland Hotel (Or other things you can do at the Disneyland Resort)

Wondering what else you can do at the Disneyland Resort other than going to the theme park per se?
I've been to HK Disneyland last 2009, so that's scratched of my list already.
I decided to spend the last few hours of my HK trip at the Disneyland Hotel. 
Thanks @paxieness for the idea!

Php 2,500 Airbnb Discount for SUN Postpaid Subscribers!

If it's not yet obvious, I am all for hostels and Airbnb when traveling. Luxury accommodation can wait. For now, while still budget traveling, I'd rather spend on other things and just book for a convenient and affordable place where I can safely leave my luggage and rest for the night.

This was our room in Osaka, Japan last April 2015. Ate booked this room via Airbnb.
