All Home

Have you been to ALL HOME?  I had the chance to check out their Quezon City branch not too long ago, and the place is huge!  It’s four whole floors of everything you need to build, furnish, or improve your home. Continue reading “All Home”

Chef Margarita Fores for L’Innovation de Nespresso

Nespresso is now in the Philippines!  John and I were invited to one of their launch dinners at Hey Handsome, where we were surprised to be greeted not by Chef Nicco Santos, but by Margarita Fores (she hid behind the TV monitor as guests started coming in so as not to spoil her surprise — just one clue as to how down to earth she is despite being Asia’s Best Female Chef 2016.).

How to Eat Healthy in Airports

A few years ago, I decided that instead of making monumental, hard-to-keep New Year’s resolutions, I would instead make easy-to-do and super simple ones that would still result in self- or life-improvement.  One such resolution that I’ve made is to eat absolutely nothing sold at the airport or served on the plane, except for fresh fruit (exceptions may apply for long-haul flights).

How to Live a Luxurious Life

You don’t have to be a billionaire to live a luxurious life.  I’ve always believed that luxury is in the little things that make life pleasurable or even magical, and they don’t always have to cost a thing. Continue reading “How to Live a Luxurious Life”

Sweet Dreams with Elica

As a mom, I know how it feels when my kids have difficulty sleeping, whether it is due to a stuffy nose or eczema.  With eczema in particular, kids get so uncomfortable and irritable with the persistent itching. Continue reading “Sweet Dreams with Elica”

Weekend Snaps: Road Testing the Chevrolet Trailblazer

I have a confession to make:  I don’t drive.  I’ve enrolled myself in driving school a few times, and I even have a driver’s license — but I’ve never actually done any driving except around the village where I grew up.  This used to embarrass me a bit, but I’ve since learned to appreciate Continue reading “Weekend Snaps: Road Testing the Chevrolet Trailblazer”
