H&M Home Opens In Manila


If I were to build my dream home, I would go for a minimalist scandinavian interior. Modern, clean, homey with a hint of quirkiness. For the longest time, I've had pegs of what my future home would be like. Now, I won't rely on just scanning and browsing online for home interiors as more and more brands are opening their stores here in our shores. Pottery Barn initiated it, followed soon by Crate and Barrel plus there's a chismis that Zara Home is also joining in the home invasion. But one thing ... [ Read More ]

Why I Work Out + 3 Tips To Get You Started

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Realizing I am no longer in my early 20s nor mid 20s made me feel oh-so unaccomplished in the fitness & health department. You see, I've always been thin. Weight was never an issue for me until after I had given birth to lil' Ms. GJG. Not that I was bothered with my weight, it was more about how I've been really lethargic for the 20 plus years of my life and the unhealthy eating habits that made me gain weight.

While there are hundreds of topics we can think of, it boiled down to the one thing that The Traveling Boots & ... [ Read More ]

Royal Restore: Designer Repair & Restoration Specialist


I admit, I am not one who would really take good care of her things. For me, bags, shoes and other accessories are created to be used and abused. But when you invest on good quality and quite expensive accessories, wouldn't you want to get your money's worth and use it for years, even decades? For someone who has started investing on luxury goods, I have come to realize that I should take better care of them so they can eventually become vintage for lil' Ms. GJG to use. I have started taking ... [ Read More ]

My One And Only Parenting Advice & Parenting Mantra

Recipe for motherhood

I really appreciate hearing my co-parents tell stories of their children. How my fellow SoMoms understand my concerns and validate them as part of being a parent. How a total stranger stops and compliments me or my kids even for the little things that made her smile. I like that despite, at times, I feel uncertain treading the path of motherhood, I do feel good being a mother to two little human beings. I am not a perfect mother nor do I try to be. Even though I'm a Virgo, I have learned to let ... [ Read More ]
