Road Trips: the Ultimate Last-Minute Budget Holiday

Friday, April 21, 2017

When you think of last-minute holidays, you might think of flying out to somewhere nearby like another city, a beach or something relaxing. You might also consider taking a train to a comfortable rural location, or you might consider driving to a nearby luxury hotel to spend a few nights pampering yourself before returning to work.

So why not try a road trip? It’s safe, fun, you can take your friends, and it costs a fraction of a plane ticket. But what’s in it for you? Here are a couple of reasons why your next holiday should be closely related to a road trip.

5 Reasons Why I Love Instant Film Photography (Feat. Instax Mini 90)

Sunday, March 19, 2017

I'm all about the Instax Mini 90 these days. First, I used to own an Instax mini 7S and a mini 8 but I must admit, my Instax Mini Neo 90 Classic from Fujifilm is the best one yet! Not only is it equipped with tons of awesome functions and new features but its sleek design is definitely a major advantage. 

Let's face it, gone are the days of film photography and flipping through old photo albums with a grainy film still image of your childhood. Instead, moments are now captured and kept through mobile phones and digital cameras. But for me, an instant film camera such as my Instax is my camera of choice for moments where I know I'll want to keep a hard copy tacked up on my wall or in a photo album. 

Be Summer-Ready With Genuinely Natural Goodies

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Summer is just around the corner, which means my friends and I will be going to the beach more often hence it's time for me to hoard summer essentials to help me gear up for a trip to the beach. Just a month ago, I recently became an advocate for Human Nature (Cagayan de Oro branch), and one of the perks of being an advocate is getting invited to exclusive events like their magalogue turnover and new product launching. 

For this year's magalogue turnover, I got to join the first ever "Summer Party" that highlights Human Nature's new products that are definitely summer must-haves! I love how Human Nature gave the spotlight to natural ingredients that would give us the same benefits with those of synthetics ones, but without doing harm to the environment. This is Human Nature's way of telling all beach lovers out there that yes, you can still enjoy under the heat while keeping your skin protected and our reefs and ridges pristine.

As much as we love to play hard, we also love to work hard.
