How to Unlock the Perfect Staycation for an Amazing Weekend

When you’re 30-something and life offers you a gift that you had the good sense to receive it - the ability to pick hotels based on their pools, awesome breakfast, and extraordinary services. Nah, just kidding! I find beauty in the most unlikely of places. I collect memories and experiences that help reveal all the blessings rooted deep within me.

I take time to enjoy my life.

 But the emphasis on this post is to remind you that you also need a good R& R every once in a while. To end our August the awesome way, I booked my family an overnight getaway to a little-known hostel near my place last weekend. Surprisingly, it’s not the typical extravagant Europe trip you’ve always dreamt of. A totally different from that long drive out-of- town fun in the sun you look forward to and away from the gazes of the overcrowded tourists, we went for an instant vacay at neighboring Bansabai Hosteling International through Sure, it’s not a deluxe 5-star, we’re not flying first class or does it involve neither an airport nor jet planes but I’m not complaining, as long as I have WIFI, AC and swimming pool to us, I can curl up and entertain myself with basically anything. Simple things, my friends. Lol.

 Sometimes, the impeccable adventures are just right in your neighborhood, STAYCATION AT IT’S FINEST! You don’t need to spend a fortune to make sure your plans and trips are pointed in the “what-the-cool-kids-are-doing” direction. Or maybe it does but the only incredible part? We never pay full price! I prefer to brave the road less traveled knowing it’s the perfect experience for me at this moment. If it brings me the people, family, and experiences that help me stay connected to my purpose then I chose to take that flight.   And to be honest, that’s the only luxury I can actually afford FOR NOW. haha! But just because you booked yourself a 5-day beach getaway on Christmas day doesn’t mean you can’t go on a small trip just then.

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

How To Instantly Add Luxury To Your Wardrobe

As you have probably guessed, I literally spend a good part of my day shopping online. Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me.

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
