I love mixing curry into salads and all the ingredients that come along with it. The mixture of spices plus the sweetness of raw and flavourful raisins and almonds are, for myself, one of my most favourite combinations when it comes to homemade salads. This recipe is 100% gluten, dairy, peanut, grain and sugar free, plus it’s vegan and protein-packed that can be served hot … Continue reading Sweet and Spicy Curry Lentil Salad
Backpack versus Luggage. This has been a well-debated subject over the past few years between myself and myself. To be honest, I’m not comfortable leaving home without my home with me. It’s an iffy feeling to walk out of the house without your essentials with you – and essentials I mean everything (up to an extra foldable grocery bag inside your bag). But over the course of years … Continue reading Why I Travel with Backpacks
I just love DIYs. They’re cheap, fun and so easy to do. This is a short guide on how we (my husband and I worked on them) made our very own toilet bombs and we are so in love with just having them at home. We try to save as much time as we can at home. We put marriage/ family (with Boogie, our 11 year-old … Continue reading DIY: Homemade Toilet Bombs
There are noteworthy blogs all around that write about their adventures in flying and how it changed their lives. To name a few you have Kyla Duffy, Susie Goldfarb and Lynn Braz. I look up to these women and I follow them all over social media. The moment I first jumped off the board I knew I’ll get ultimately hooked and I haven’t stopped flying since then. Seriously, I … Continue reading Trapeze: Are you an addict?
Five months from now, I’m officially celebrating my fly-nniversary of three years. There’s so much to write about my trapeze life (admittedly my addiction) but I’ll start with the basics. Today’s topic: How (over the course of years) I took care and still take care of my hands. When I started flying, I knew that my hands will eventually build up calluses and rip thereafter. I’ve accepted that fact. I was a … Continue reading Caring for your trapeze hands
For months now, I’ve been looking for a good and affordable Vegan leather reversible tote – one that I can use (formally) at work and (casually) when I go out. There are a lot of these bags online, to my dismay though, are not available in Manila. A week ago, a friend of mine offered to sell me a Coach bag and like any normal woman … Continue reading Stylebox MNL: Reversible Tote Bag
I decided to switch to this product right after my first Vegan and Non-GMO ones (JĀSÖN® Volumizing Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner) because that didn’t work for me as I’d expected. It made my hair so dry and limp that I decided to switch to a different brand. I also noticed that JĀSÖN® products are too harsh for my skin. Although my skin isn’t as sensitive as my … Continue reading Nature’s Gate: Enriching Biotin + Bamboo Shampoo and Conditioner
A typical and funny conversation: Person : Have you always lived a healthy life? Me: Nope! Person: Then what made you decide to lead one? Me: I had my gallbladder removed (via laparoscopic cholecystectomy) because I had gallbladder stones. Person: Oh, did you have a hard time peeing then? Me: Gallbladder stones, not Kidney ones. Person: Oh, right. Wait, what’s the gallbladder for again? And … Continue reading Goodbye, gallbladder! Hello, a newer me.
