Aurora Travel Diary 2017: Glamping at Sand & Stars

"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever."~ Jacques Yves Costeau. This quote holds true to me. What I can vividly remember when I was just two years old, a time when my memory was  starting to form, I was at the beach near our ancestral house in Iloilo province, half submerged in the water, carried by one of my uncles. I was kicking my legs in joy because I was enjoying making the water splash around me. I think that was the seed that made me start to love the sea. 





The sea gives me an unexplainable sense of calmness. If I am stressed out of my wits and I know I'm going to break down soon, a trip to the beach always relieves that. I don't know about you guys, that is how it works for me. The beach is my happy place.  And if you don’t know it yet, there's a study that going to the beach is very helpful in relieving the feeling of weariness.

5 Motivational Tips for 30-Something Gals

You’ve finally turned thirty, oh joy! Here you are, lounging in your bedroom and binge-watching Netflix in your underwear, feeling pretty good about yourself. While your accomplishment of seeing five seasons of your favourite show in less than two days is, of course, incredible, you feel like it pales slightly in comparison with your friends who are all already married, have kids and successful careers. It’s fine to be lost while you’re a teenager or in your twenties, but turn thirty and everyone expects you to already have it all figured out. Couple that with the fear of growing old and you’re in for a wild ride of constant anxiety. Well, we’re here to soothe your mind a bit. Feeling a little uninspired and worried about your future? Then read on. 




Stop comparing yourself to others
Seeing people your age becoming successful at life puts a certain kind of pressure on us. Why didn’t we get there yet? You have to realize that this pressure is mostly self-imposed and sometimes helped along by our parents who keep nagging about grandchildren. Your friends are great people, so instead of wasting time on envying them and harming yourself in the process, embrace their success and stop seeing it as evidence of your own failure. Do things at your own pace and do them to please yourself; don’t do stuff to please your parents or some society-imposed “ideal” of what your life is supposed to look like.

Rosegal Christmas Deals + Gift Ideas

It's around 20 days until Christmas and I can truly feel the rush and business of the holiday season. For the coming weeks, my weekends are now blocked for parties and get-togethers and I don't even know how to find the time to look and shop for gifts. Probably that's why my best option is to buy online instead. Because it's the only way that I can shop while I'm on the go.



Good thing is that like in malls or physical stores, there are a lot of sales and promos that online stores are also having. A few of my favorite online stores are giving their shoppers  a lot of good deals as early as November. Just like the Rosegal Christmas deals 2017 Promotion.

Timeless Fashion Trends That Never Go Out of Style

Don’t get us wrong – we’re all about supporting the latest trends… except when we’re not. Every cropped top and ripped jean has its timeless mirror-piece and we can’t help but be in favor of the cuts, prints and pieces that never go out of style and, well – work beautifully every single time. On that note, we are dedicating this late fall fashion talk to a few of our favorite timeless fashion trends and pieces we simply cannot get over. 





LBD 
Starting the list with an LBD is definitely an expected and probably worn out cliché but that’s not on us – can you really imagine a woman’s closet without an LBD? Of course you can’t! A little black dress is that one perfect piece that makes sense in every occasion; just dress it up or down, adjust the length and you are good to go.

The Ups and Downs of the Holiday Season

It's 26 days until Christmas and I can't fathom how time can fly so fast. I swear it was just summer yesterday and now it's getting cold and everywhere you go you can see people putting up their Christmas decors. This season can be both festive and stressful, to be honest.




I personally love this season because of how cheerful it is. The spirit of live and giving is in everyone's heart and mind. I also get to attend parties and gatherings with friends and families left and right. This season is a season to do a lot of catching up and gift giving.

Zaful Black Friday Sale + Wishlist

Though I still love buying from malls, I love the freedom that online shopping gives.  I rarely go to malls now because of them being crowded, parking is hard and traffic is horrible, especially that the holiday season is upon us. I love and so much into online shopping that I pretty much get all my apparel and accessories from the web. Yes, I have had my fair share of troubles with buying online but I still like that there’s such limitless options online. Also, I can’t let a good deal pass with all-year discounts and coupons since I am also a thrifty shopper.  Another thing is that, some of the items that I want are not available locally.

Here’s A Bright Idea, Light up Your Home with Light Fixtures That Make a Statement

I've always had a longing to have my own home, a place a can always call home and go to at the end of a tiring work day that will be a place where I can put my feet up and relax before I hit the sack. My dream home would be a modern-country home standing along a beautiful coast, like somewhere in a South Carolina or Virginia Beach with interior design and decor of soft motif hues of turquoise, aqua, yellow and ocean blues. 




I would want huge windows that will allow natural sunlight to shine in through in the mornings and with beautiful and vintage lighting fixtures to illuminate the areas of the house in the evening. I want every area of the house to be spaces that you can cozy up every time you want to.

It's The Season To Layer

Just got out of work, it's 6:00 in the morning, it's still dark, a crescent moon is still up in the sky and the chill wind is blowing. Ahhh... Winter Solstice is here. Can you already feel the holiday season? As for me it's a big yes! I'm so excited for the holiday festivities ahead. It's palpable, a matter of fact!




So what's the best way to keep warm and cozy this cold season? Layers! Ladies hear me out! Layers! So whenever the weather changes from cold to humid we can just take off our sweaters. I personally don’t like a cold weather because my allergies are heightened up when I’m in a cold place. Fall is here and winter is coming (sorry for Game of Thrones reference, can't help it lol!).
