Camping out in the wilderness is a fantastic way to reconnect with nature and find peace. The US has one of the most varied ecosystems in the world. So, you’re guaranteed to find a location that will meet your expectations. The only issue is that you might find yourself a long way of civilization. That poses problems if you face emergencies or require assistance. The last thing you want is for something bad to happen when people would struggle to find you. With that in mind, I’ve published some wilderness safety tips on this page you need to read. Hopefully, they will help you to leave no stone unturned when it comes to preparing for any eventuality.

We’re not all Bear Grylls (thankfully), but we can still camp like the rest of them. Camping doesn’t have to be hollowing out a tree to sleep in, using moss as blankets and foraging for berries to eat. A camping trip can be as glamorous as you like, car storage space allowing. If you’ve got your location chosen, your tent packed, and a bit of extra space in the car, here are a few must-tries to take your trip to the next level.

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.

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.

Camping is such a fun and inexpensive way to explore the area around you! Sure, many people prefer to jet off to sunnier climes or exotic destinations. But, there is so much you won’t have seen in your own backyard, as it were!
By going camping, one can get the real essence of being at one with nature. Plus, you get to pick the perfect spot to pitch your tent. Suddenly, waking up to a beautiful landscape each morning with no-one in sight around you is very much a real possibility! So, if you wanted to go camping alone, what should you take with you?
It’s obvious that you will need a change of clothes, for a start. Be sure to pack clothing appropriate to the weather conditions of where you are going. You’ll also need a tent, preferably a “pop-out” one, so you don’t have to spend a long time putting it up or taking it down. But, what other essentials do you need for a solo camping adventure?

Traveling is something that we should all do. It doesn’t matter how far you go, even a night spent under the stars in your own country can open your eyes and extend your awareness. However, one of the most important things to do when traveling is to get to the heart of the country you are in. You need to really surround yourself with the culture to get to grips with how special it is.

As much as we love to play hard, we also love to work hard. Sadly, our body can only take so much punishment and as we grow older, we’ll find ourselves getting fatigued more easily and longing for a nice comfortable rest in our bed more often. Sadly, that’s just one of the effects of growing older. As we age, our bodies start to slow down a little and we get tired more easily. However, that doesn’t explain how many people are able to sustain healthy diets, stay awake and continue living their lives on the edge despite being many years older than you—just how do they do it?!
Fighting the effects of tiredness and fatigue are life-long and it mainly involves your diet, staying healthy and also, most importantly, by not burning yourself out.

We all have our comfort zone. This is the place we feel at ease and safe, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The only downside is that if we stay within these strict parameters that we set for ourselves, we’re unlikely to grow and experience new things. Sometimes comfort zones are created through fear. But if you’re brave and break through them, there is no end to the possibilities.
