Mother’s Day Staycation At Discovery Suites Ortigas


Mother's Day weekend for me was made extra special because I was treated like a queen. Discovery Suites invited the GJGs to experience an overnight stay, making it our home away from home two weekends ago. Discovery Suites isn't new to me, I've attended a few personal and blog related events there but this was the first time we stayed overnight so I was really looking forward to sleeping on their comfy bed. Yes, for me, the bed makes the staycation really something to remember. ;) Discovery ... [ Read More ]

The Struggle Is Real


Being lucky is not enough when it comes to getting what you want. While I know some people attribute their success as 50% luck and 50% work, I believe it's always 100% work.  I  agree with Louis Pasteur "Chance favors the prepared mind".

I am very traditional when it comes to achieving success. I want it slowly but surely. The idea ... [ Read More ]

MomMeCation At Manila Peninsula


The first few weeks into mommyhood, I honestly felt tired, exhausted and just drained. The overwhelming surge of endorphins gave an equal amount of challenges for me.

I was guilty of leaving lil' Ms. GJG because being her mom, I know I should be with her 24/7. What made my guilt dissipate was realizing that I ... [ Read More ]

Face Wardrobe With Dior x Cristina Madara


Beauty and fashion really go hand in hand because one would work better with the other. Most women (myself included) love building their wardrobe as they discover their personal style but when it comes to their beauty arsenal, they'd rather use what they've already tried and tested. It's when I started blogging that I realized discovering beauty products to add to my arsenal is as essential as learning to edit my wardrobe. Dior had an exclusive event at Lusso last week where image consultant ... [ Read More ]

First LEGO Certified Store Now Open In Manila


Three days ago, the first ever LEGO certified store in The Philippines finally opened. It's located at Kidzania Building in Bonifacio Global City. The press preview of the first LEGO store in Manila was flanked by LEGO lovers. I mean, everyone who attended the grand opening do know LEGO & most likely grew up with the brand. Back when technology was far-fetched, kids and kids-at-heart get busy with their hands and were pretty much Master Builders in their own right. I admit I was pretty ... [ Read More ]
