Over the weekend, the GJGs went on a lovely staycation at Makati Shangri-La. We love doing staycations because it's a breath of fresh air from our usual & daily routine. It's the lil' GJGs who are really looking forward to doing staycations. My lil' Ms. GJG even has her opinion of the hotel we stay in. Usually, she would quip about how nice the pool is or how pretty the room is. Next thing I know, she'll be in charge of doing accommodations review here on the blog. For now, let me share ...

Featured posts that deserve such attention because they're cool, you just gotta read them.
Ever since I've chosen to eat healthier and more consciously, I've been more selective about what I prepare for myself and my family. For example, I never thought I'd like milk as much as I do right now. Good thing there's NESTLE NON-FAT MILK to provide my daily serving of milk. Not only does it aid in giving me the daily calcium that I need, it also helps me manage my weight, since each serving has a 90-calorie count and only 0.1% fat. While I find it easy to veer away from unhealthy food, I ... [ Read More ]
As what I mentioned on my FitFlop sweet escape post, Amorita Resort along Alona Beach in Panglao Bohol deserves a spotlight of its own.

Back in 1980, a Filipina film actress named Alona Alegre shot some scenes along the beach. Since then, locals started calling Tawala, Alona. A few decades after and the name Alona stuck through. Amorita (means "little darling") is a ... [ Read More ]
I think I've confessed to this lack of skin care regimen of mine many times over here on the blog. I only wear sunscreen when I'm at the beach and back when I was younger (read: teens, early 20s) I don't even put sunscreen while I'm soaking up the sun, getting a tan! I know, I know, I'm more prone to premature wrinkles and I've come to learn & understand this a few months ago when I started noticing how bad my skin has become. I've been more prone to acne, breakouts, dryness and uneven skin ... [ Read More ]
I've never traveled alone nor have I been away from my children for more than 24 hours. So when Fitflop invited me on a three-day sweet escape, I didn't confirm immediately. I had to consult Mr. GJG about it and coordinate with him about the schedule of the lil' GJGs and prepare what they need for the three days that I'll be away. Very motherly lang ang peg. So I was pretty surprised when Mr. GJG supported me on this adventure, he figured it was a good way for me to have some "me time" while ... [ Read More ]
