Make Your Coffee A Little Extra With Lotus Biscoff

I love coffee! I can't function at work without it, that's why before I clock in or after I clock-in, I get myself a tumbler of coffee. It's the fuel of my body, almost the blood that runs through my arteries and veins. I usually don't munch on anything when drinking my good old tumbler of a coffee, it's just me, my workstation and my coffee. But wouldn't it be lovely if I can jazz  up my coffee moments with a nice biscuit to go with it? 




Thanks to Lotus Biscoff, Europe's favorite cookie, my coffee time is made a little extra. I was able to receive a box-full of these little goodness and the moment I started gobbling them, I can't make myself stop from reaching one pack after the other. I also tried dipping them them in coffee, you know, how you would dunk Oreo cookies in milk, and the taste became even more irresistible.

Countering The Bad Rap That Come With Hair Extensions

In today’s world, it’s surprising that there are still people who are living as if they are in the 1800’s or early 1900’s. You know people that are so conservative about everything and are so much afraid of the changes happening with just about everything. And this does not spare people who want to look good and employ products that were used to be appalling to society. A lot of shaming has come with making one look better. Unfortunately, whether it’s good or bad, shaming will still go one’s way. It’s like damn if you do and damn if you don’t.




For crying out loud, it’s already 2018 but up until now, our society has been dealing with charlatans. Tabloids, magazines, social media and the internet are laden with horrifying pictures of celebrities and common people who have used eyelash extensions, hair extensions and other beauty enhancers that have cause damaged to them. But seriously, these things happens because the handling and maintaining these beauty enhancers in a proper way.

How To Achieve Coachella-Perfect Boho Hair

Coachella's back to back weekend events has concluded but the hang-over lingers. It is probably the most famous arts, fashion, style and music free-spirited festival there is in our modern time thanks to some famous millennials and Gen-Zers of our time. Having the California palm trees and soft sunshine of early spring as your backdrop can't get any dreamier. It's as if you're transported to another dimension altogether. Most of us can only dream of attending this well documented and talked about event. 




What I love about this festival though is the fashion. It is basically anything and with Coachella, there's no such things as too much. There’s also unspoken rule that one's head to toe outfit should find its traces to its dreamy Bohemian roots. It has become so popular that in the past couple of years everything, and I mean, almost everything is Boho chic. I can't even fathom how many parties that I have attended back in 2016 and 2017 with a Coachella/Bohemian theme.

My Fourth Mumuso Korea Mini-Haul

Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s been a while since I’ve done a Mumuso Haul review, and I’m back at it. Well, I’ve been regularly buying stuff from this lifestyle store since its launch in the Philippines. Getting probably 1-2 products at a time and only just a month weeks ago that I was able to get a few stuff in one purchase. I mean, if I’m running out of something that I got from Mumuso, I can just walk to the store on my lunch break and get it. So a few days ago, I was tagged by a friend on this post regarding Mumuso calling the brand fake or counterfeit and was warning people about it. I was like, Hmmmm… In the many times I’ve been at the store, I never found anything that bears the name of any other famous brands out there. Yes the packaging looks like some of those other brands. But that doesn’t mean they are fake. 





Most of the products are made in China. So what? Almost everything nowadays is made in China. It’s nothing new. If this is surprising to you, then have you been living under a rock all these years and that you are not aware China is the largest manufacturing and exporting industry in the whole wide world. I saw this post on their Facebook page: “Mumuso is a lifestyle brand that is inspired, developed and conceptualized by Korean trends and culture. Our goal is to provide the best products that will give you the most value for money. Our products undergo careful quality control and have passed stringent FDA registration procedures. You can select from our wide selection of home and personal accessories, gadgets, toys, cosmetics and skincare that have become a favorite of many.”

Beauty and Hair Goes Back To Basics

From wigs to weaves to hair extensions, beauty and styling products have gone from synthetic to the real thing. After all the studies done to educate beauty-conscious population the long term harmful effects of cosmetics and styling products that has chemical components in them. Thus people started to get products that are organic or use the real thing. Basically we are all going back to the basics, doing things like how it was during the ancient times.

The internet has blown up with a couple of products. Both celebrities and common people have been sharing them online.

Hair... The Long and Short of Things

Unfortunately, not every one of us is fortunate enough to be blessed with luscious locks. During special events or simply just any given day, I believe that having long and thick hair is something that so many of us dream of having. I hate to admit that I am making generalizations here but history speaks for itself when I say that having long hair is always associated femininity. 




Back in the day, a woman of means proved her status with long, manicured nails; long hair, particularly with intricate braids; smooth, unblemished skin; and ornate clothing. Being seen in public with long hair used to be a statement that a woman has the leisure time to spend on something trivial as your hair. Although this may differ from one culture to another.

Taming My Luggage For Good with Bagail’s Packing Cubes

On my blog’s side bar, you can find my profile where I say there that I love to travel whenever time and finances permits it. It still holds true to this day. I make it a point to at least do it once every quarter. And go someplace where I’ve never been before. For me, the meaning and importance of travel is summed up by these two quotes: “I’d rather have a passport full of stamps than a house full of things” and “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list”.




The more I travel, the more I want to see and experience the world and other cultures.  Travelling makes you get to know different kinds of people, eat different kinds local food (my favorite part of travelling TBH), learn a couple of foreign words or phrases and just appreciate every place’s beauty. Travelling is the best experience for me. The more you travel, it makes you less ignorant, prejudice and makes you realize that everyone is unique.
