The Sunday Currently: Vol. 4

I missed one Sunday for my TSC series... I tried writing my Vol. 4 while on holiday in HK but wasn't able to finish it. So I deleted everything. It was tight sched vacation and we lost one day because of typhoon Haiyan. Our Sunday last week would have been a relaxed day walking around the city but oh well. I ain't complaining because it was so fun especially our trip to Disneyland where we all became kids again!

Ok I did some complaining because we walked all day everyday when we were there. My feet and legs hurt like hell, I wasn't ready for all the walking. But yeah it was a very nice trip with my college friends. Almost a decade in the making but worth every minute of it.

Dreamy Evening Dresses from EdressUK

I am pretty much in love with wearing dresses… throughout the year 2016 I have successfully overhauled my collection of dresses from zero to almost half of my closet rack is full of dresses. Although I must admit that I don’t get to use them that often because wearing dresses can be a confidence boost for feeling such a girly-girl but there are times that I get too lazy and just put on jeans and a blouse whenever I go to work, church or do some errands. But at least whenever I need one I know I have something to grab from my cabinet.

What I noticed though is that I don’t own much of when it comes to evening dresses that I could wear if or whenever there’s an event to attend to, like a formal gala or wedding. What I have now are too casual or bordering casual and those that I have worn when I became a bridesmaid and maid-of-honor for two of my friends’ weddings. But I don’t think I can really categorize them as formal evening dresses. So probably it would be best for me that the next time I check out my favorite online stores, I should also check out some of their Evening Dresses UK and at least score one even if I don’t really have an immediate use for them.

Curvy yet still sexy!

You can be beautiful and sexy in your own way. A person can have such a beautiful body but if her attitude is rotten or she/he puts down other people to make him/herself "feel beautiful", can you truly say he/she is beautiful? Well, it depends on you if what is your standards or your morals when it comes to beauty. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I totally agree with that. Our society nowadays has continually making changes of the standards of beauty. 

Social media has played a big role in telling and convincing people which is beautiful or sexy or not; especially when it comes to body size or form. But let me tell you this, the most beautiful woman is someone who loves and appreciates her own body. Never allow anyone to define your identity or tell you are not beautiful or sexy. We are all created differently. Someone can be beautiful to a person A but not to person B and it's their opinion and you can never change that. What's important is that you are not defined but someone else's view of you.

The Sunday Currently: Vol. 3

There's a storm looming and it was pretty rainy and cold this morning. I woke up so early but didn't get out of bed until around 9am. I have a lot to do today. For one I need to pack my stuff asap because I won’t have time to do it before my trip then I have to meet my friends later for a meeting to finalize the itinerary for our trip. 

It's actually Monday, but I was not able to finish this last night because I was too sleepy. Anyways....


Cozy Up this Sweater Weather with FashionMia.com

I personally don’t like a cold weather because my allergies are heightened up when I’m in a cold place. September marks the start of the cold season in most parts of the world, Fall is around the corner and Winter is soon coming (sounds like a line from Game of Thrones ain't it? lol!). 

Although we don’t experience Fall or Winter here in the Philippines, our weather still gets cold because from June until December it’s the rainy season and when it rains it tends to get pretty cold too. Not to forget that the cold wind coming from the north of Asia also greatly affects our local weather and that’s how close we can experience Winter back here.

4 Nutrition Trends Blowing Up This Year And Their Benefits

If there is one things humans love it's their quest to find the perfect diet when they're trying to improve their health. Although new trends aren't particularly better than a normal balanced diet, they can sometimes be easier to stick to long term. Whether it's the diet itself or psychology at play, a lot of people will still end up with overall positive results. Here is the list of trending diets at the moment, which includes the positives and negatives of each one.

Raw Vegan Diet
Raw vegan diets have been around for a while. Moreover, we have platforms like YouTube to thank for it’s recent increase in popularity. As long as you work hard to ensure you're hitting all your micro and macronutrient requirements, it would be easy to thrive on a raw vegan diet and your body would have more than enough energy due to all the carbs you'd be eating. Unfortunately, the diet isn't necessarily more healthy than a normal vegan diet, yet it's a hundred times more restrictive. You'll also need to supplement the vitamin B-12, and it will be harder to meet your protein requirements without eating cooked food.

A Marketplace of Good Food and Even Better Ideas

Women empowerment isn’t just a catchphrase - it’s a way of life for the women economic leaders coming together at Women’s Market on the 15th of October 2016 at Eastwood CityWalk 2. Dakila - Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism, Oxfam and the Pambansang Koalisyon ng Kababaihan sa Kanayunan (PKKK), in partnership with Muni.Ph, are bringing together strong women leaders and entrepreneurs in a marketplace of good products and even better ideas, in celebration of International Rural Women’s Day.

A diverse selection of products grown, made, and marketed by rural women in the Philippines, such as organic lechon, banigs, earrings, massage oils, jams, and more will be sold at the Women's Market from 10am-7pm. The premiere of a women’s empowerment documentary and a series of talks and performances by women leadership icons will comprise the program from 3pm-6pm.

Armi Millare, musician, Dakila member and WEL advocate emphasizes the importance of women leaders imparting their wisdom to others: “If we can share knowledge that could help those who need to be represented, we should, by all means, take a stand and make a choice—however small—can be a step towards change.”

In addition to Millare, speakers and performers include: Maricris Sarino-Joson of Yabang Pinoy; writer and celebrity mom, Stephanie Zubiri; designer Joyce Makitalo; Charlene Tan of the Good Food Community; artist and Climate Justice advocate Nityalila; Aia de Leon of Imago; Maricel Cua of the Parenting Emporium; Kat Agarrado of Sinosikat; and of course key members of the rural women’s groups, who will share their insights on how women can thrive in diverse roles in business, community, family, and country.

Both events are open to the public, with no entrance fee.

Secrets To Having A Perfectly Tanned Skin All Year Long

As summer gradually morphs into fall, the warm temperatures and bright sunny days give way to shorter days and autumnal foliage. Indeed, while fall is definitely worth celebrating on its own, it's undeniably a less tan-friendly period than its preceding season. If you're interested in preserving the natural tan you worked so hard to obtain during summertime, consider some time-tested strategies that will be your allies when it comes to retaining the golden bronze color all throughout the year.

Moisturize as much as possible 
A good moisturizer will keep the skin extra hydrated, which prevents dryness from setting in. Once this occurs, peeling is much more likely to happen, and that could spell the end of your tan. Moisturize multiple times per day in order to prevent this, and try to find creams that stimulate the production of melanin, a pigment that gives off a darker color the more it is present in your skin.

The Sunday Currently: Vol. 2

It's a rainy Sunday and when I opened my eyes this morning I immediately want to sleep again. But it would be such a waste to do nothing on my precious weekend. So yeah I got my ass up from the bed and sat down and closed my eyes again haha!

Now seriously though, I know I need to do something today, like this second entry of my TSC series, man... it's only the second one and I am already not keeping up... ok I won’t do that. So I'll write this is as my day goes along...

The Sunday Currently: Vol. 1

I woke up this Sunday morning at around 5:00 am with a bad case of allergic rhinitis. I tried going back to sleep but I keep sneezing like every 1 minute; so I decided to just get up and pop an anti-histamine. I have nothing to do and don't have anything planned out for today. I made coffee for myself, opened my PC, browsed through my emails and social media, finished a sponsored blog post and then nothing to do again.

Then I started reading other blogs that I follow. I don't get to do that anymore so that's what I did to pass time until I think of something to do with my precious weekend. That's when I came across this blogger who writes something that is called "The Sunday Currently" or TSC. TSC was started by blogger siddathornton  to celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget and then the rest is history. 

The Iconic Wrap Dress

I used to regularly watch one of the big names in the fashion industry, Tim Gunn's make-over TV show, where he would style and teach women how to dress for their height and body shape. And I have noticed that he usually would include a wrap dress for every make over that he did.

Tim Gunn said it is one of the type of dress silhouette that flatters every body type. But more so it does great wonders for women who are curvy and plus size because it emphasizes these body shapes' best features - especially the upper torso and if a woman is busty too. The wrap dress gives every woman an hour glass figure.
