16 Things I Accomplished Last August

It’s already the middle of September and I’m still in denial. I looked at my bullet journal this morning and saw “11” staring back at me. I was kind of taken a back. I was surprised. 11? As in it’s already September 11? I couldn’t believe it. 2 weeks left until October, then November’s gonna roll in. Then it’s Christmas time, then a new year all over again. I know I complain about the days being long, but I didn’t see this year rolling in this fast.

Featured Blogger of the Month: The Grey Nomad Blog

Ahh, September! It’s not really my favorite month, but it’s the title of my favorite go-to song when I’m feeling down – September by Earth Wind & Fire. You do know it, don’t you? Please don’t disappoint me!  Anyway, welcome back to my Featured Blogger of the Month series! We’re on to our 4th one and I’m really excited to reveal this month’s featured… wait for it… bloggers. Yes, it’s a duo! I met them when I worked for an event company a month back and tapped their shoulder for a possible work opportunity. But I believe I’ve already been […]

Magic Monday | Vol. 18

I’ve been missing in action on my blog lately (I know, despite the bombard of notifications in your inbox, I can personally feel my own absence). I started from my Twitter, then it crawled to my blog. As much as I wanted to blog randomly, I let my buzzing thoughts slide off my back. I just didn’t want to bother. But since I had an eventful week, I’m gonna go ahead and do a Magic Monday – also to encourage you all to carry over the long weekend vibe to this week. I’m not particularly excited for Monday, but it’s […]

Cultivating Relationships in Freelancing: The Freelancer Fair

Over the years that I’ve been freelancing (LOL, as if I’m a veteran already), I’ve shared some tips and techniques to survive in the freelancing world. I’ve also laid the common pros and cons on the table for those who are thinking of entering freelancing but are not sure what’s in store for them. It’s easy to say that freelancing is chill because you can basically work anywhere – in your house, in a coffee shop, in a park, even on vacation.  But that’s just one of the perks of freelancing. When it comes to the cons, they could be […]

Quick Local Haul x Great Escapes Travel Fair

Last Friday, August 18, I was invited to attend the Great Escapes Travel Fair in Glorietta 2 (Palm Drive). Jhanzey, a good friend and fellow blogger, sent me an invite though she couldn’t make it at that time because of work. Jhanzey, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you would have enjoyed it! But I’ll let the photos do the talking. 🙂 It was a really cool event because I actually discovered a lot of local brands that have quality goods. They’re also reasonably priced, so you’d know they’re not ripping you off. I walked around several times to make […]

11 Ways To Appreciate Manila (More)

With all her splendor and history, if you have never explored Manila before, you might have a hard time exploring her now, right? Good point. But it took me, what, less than 6 months to fall in love with her, all while doing these intentional activities. So yes, I’m going all out on you and giving you 11 ways to appreciate Manila (more) based on my personal experiences.  I will admit, being in a relationship with Jec brought a lot of opportunities for me. Him being a person of connection, I met a lot of people through him. I’m an introvert in […]

Hey, guys. It’s Monday again but a holiday (Ninoy Aquino Day), so I’m pretty sure most of you are relishing in the long weekend and staying in or doing productive things that you can’t do on a weekend or on a normal working Monday.

This blog series aims to uplift dazed spirits, especially on a Monday morning – a friendly reminder that not all Mondays should […]
