a relaxing day at Paniman Beach (Ternate, Cavite)

IMG_3494Yahoo! It’s the weekend again. Every weekend, my sister and I try to go to other places that we thought would be nice and relaxing.

We learned about his beach through a Facebook post and the blogger tagged it as “Abandoned Paradise for Day Trippers”. It is, indeed! One has to have their own car or motorcycle to go there.

6 Tips To Stay Healthy Inside and Out

adult-backlit-beach-320007I love skin care and I have a lot of skincare products at home. When I’m not too tired from work, I do my best to do as much as possible the 10-step Korean skincare I read online. Hoping I’ll have clearer skin.

But then, one should also take care of the inside and it will radiate to the outside skin. Even though I do my night routine religiously, I still get a pimple here and there. I still look dull sometimes.Read More »

20 Songs To Listen To On A Rainy Day

20 Songs To Listen To On A Rainy DayIt’s rainy season here in the Philippines and on weekends when I’m just at home, I find myself getting a little sentimental. But also it’s so peaceful to just hear the rain tapping on the window. It makes me calm.

Listening to music has also been my favorite. With a cup of a hot drink, I listen to these songs. And most of them are mellow tunes. I inserted their links if you want to listen to them on Spotify.Read More »
