  • Sharp Android TV LC45UA6800X Review

    We just made a switch from one Smart TV to another. It’s been 4 months since we owned our first ever Smart TV. It’s nice to finally watch Netflix and Youtube directly on your TV with just a single press on the remote. It is convenient and it made me become a couch potato. But an upgrade came four months after. I was skeptic at first because I didn’t know what to expect from an “Android TV” but knowing that SHARP is a bankable brand, excitement overpowered uncertainties. Look at the specifications that made me more excited: Sharp Philippines LC-45UA6800X Aquos 45” 4K HDR AndroidTV ✔️androidtv ✔️Dolby Audio ✔️Netflix ✔️YouTube…

  • Curly Girls Philippines First Meetup

      After sharing my CGM journey on my previous post, The Curly Girl Method Made Me Love My Hair More, I intend to convince you further that curly hair is as natural as any other hair types. But it requires a different set of ingredients and a different set of tender loving care or TLC routine. More and more women are breaking the barriers of product development and advertising. More and more are also embracing their natural hair especially in the Philippines. It’s good to watch demo videos of curly girl methods. But based on experience, most featured CG approved products and hair maintenance tools are not available locally. And…

  • The Curly Girl Method Made Me Love My Hair More

      I’ve always embraced my curls. I always thought it makes me stand out in the crowd. It is truly a head-turner and contrary to some old beliefs, it is truly easy to maintain. Until my eyes were opened to the curly curl method. I have been practicing bits and pieces of this method. I do not shampoo often and use conditioner to wash, detangle and condition my hair at the same, this is called “co-washing”. I also use a microfiber towel to dry my hair. I use products for “curly hair”. Apparently, that’s not all there is to it! The curly girl method is not just a set of…

  • 32 Life Lessons as I Celebrate my 32nd Birthday

    As I turn thirty-two, I always feel like I am answerable to many people. I feel like those around me always await my next move, my next life decisions, etc. Sometimes, I feel the pressure from the timelines of the society.

I always try my best to choose gratitude. To pay more attention on what I have than what I don’t. Today, I wrote what I’ve learned in almost 32 years and I…
