Summer is here, and so are the annual beach trips. Be swim-ready this summer and invest in high-quality swimsuits with a diverse array of designs to choose from! Most online shops that sell swimwear normally have the typical two-piece, one-piece bikini suits. It’s important to include women who dress modestly in these kinds of spaces. Swimwear must be comfortable for the wearer.
A Burkini swimsuit is a great option for those who dress modestly. A burkini is a pun on the words’ burqa and bikini. A burqa is a type of body and head covering worn in public by Islamic women. The torso is covered with the swimsuit, leaving only the face, hands, and feet exposed.
Kaftans are also great for modest beach swimwear, as they are long robes that reach your ankle. They are chic, fashionable, and most of all comfortable on a hot summer day at the beach. Sarong skirts are also another way to be comfortably stylish for modest women. It is a below the knee skirt perfect for mix-and-matching tops you already own.
Lyra Swims sells all of the aforementioned products, and more, with affordable prices! They have a wide range of designs, styles, and sizes inclusive of everyone. The company also has a campaign promoting fitness through swimming. Their brand is a testament to the revolutionization of inclusivity in swimwear and the benefits that people get from it. Lyra Swims isn’t just a company that sells, it is also a movement encouraging women to be comfortable in their own skin through swimwear that suits their lifestyle.
Most women if not all, really loves to dress up. Be it on a simple event or grand ocasion. But many women are also having issues with their bodies. As women come in different sizes and shapes, other tends to be not so confident with what they have. Especially in this digital age were most people are so judgemental in social media platforms. Many felt so pressed that they need to keep up with the latest and others gets to the point of getting pressured to go under the knife just to appease other people.
I believe, no matter shape or form a woman has, she should never be dictated nor feel pressured to keep up with social standards. Woman has her own beauty and it doesn’t just end up with physical appearance. There are also many options to choose from if we want to enhance to be more confident that we look good without getting too extreme that once has to go under the knife and change yourself to the point that you or others cannot recognise yourself anymore.
One of enhancing yourself when dressing up and you don’t feel that much confident becuase of the extra flabs or fats showing off from that tummy is to use shapewear dress which definitely can show off that shape of you and also makes you feel comfortable and confident without spending too much and breaking the bank as there are now lots of store that offer those type of shapewear at very affordable prices.

If you’re looking for built in shapewear dress, you can check out Popilush that offer such type of clothing. I remember a friend who always wear sexy dresses and she has revealed that she’s not that really voluptuos but really looks one because of the shapewear dresses that she has. No one really noticed and it seems like legit as she showed up wearing the usal versus the shapewear and can really tell the big difference. What’s nice is that they are many options to choose like a dress, it could be a mini or a maxi dress. You can also mix and match with accessories and can even wear different types of shoes, like a formal high heel or go casual on a sandals or rubbers shoes.
Many can attest to the effectivity of the shapewear as many are giving positive comments giving their feedback on comfort and how others have tried it out themselves too. Not to mention how pocket friendly it is as you can wear it over again witout sacrificing the quality and efficacy of its main purpose to give you that shape you deserve.

Women plays a vital role in the society. In the past, she’s confined and restricted to just being a second voice in the world dominated by men. Women nowadays have raised equality in terms of social, political and religious rights. But she has remain and kept the essence of a woman being the gentle, loving and modest person that she is.
She’s no longer confined in the 4 corners of home but can now go out in the open and be able to express and prove everyone she can also be a great educator, entrepreneur, leader and advocate of her belief that she can bring productivity, growth, improvement and development for the society.
She may have reached out progress and achieved a lot… But she’s still a mother, daughter sister, aunt, grandmother. A woman you can never change that she is.
How does women regain strength after failure and hardship. She also needs rest, to rejuvenate and flourish to get back on her feet again. Nurture her well being to be become a better version of herself again. Pamper herself with good and healthy food, relax her body and communicate back with nature using natural products that will lead her to become a beautiful woman inside out.
I have came across these newly launched products from Ming Sing, which has now been established as a holistic wellness brand focusing on making products to help people in their everyday lives. Products manufactured in Taiwan and distributed here in Philippines.
I have tried the below hand sanitizer in OLIVINE variant. It contains 75% Denatured Alcohol, Green Tea Extract. It also has healing crystals as they claimed to CLEANSE yourself of bad energy (and germs) and ATTRACT happiness, prosperity and well-being.
What I love about this: No strong and offensive smell, one pump goes a long way and leave your hands soft and not drying.
The above Ming Sing Mosquito Repellent Spray has Citriodiol®, a 100% naturally sourced, organic, plant based substance. It claims to repel all types of mosquitoes up to 4 hours.
I have tried and sprayed on my legs and clothing as mosquitoes tend to lurk around underneath my office table especially at night and surprisingly, I didn’t get any mosquito bites up until the next morning which I usually get often at nights especially during this summer season. What I love about this: Has fine mist trigger spray that makes the product evenly spread on skin. Just like the alcohol spray, it doesn’t leave the icky feeling though you can really smell a strong essential oil like odour which I believe made it to the efficacy of the product.
Good for the whole family as it is; ✔ Suitable for children
✔ Suitable to pregnant women
The Itch Reliever roll on also has the essential oil calming scent and soothes those mini bumps from scratches. It contains, Minbishu is a mixture of carefully hand picked natural essential oils and plant extracts to not only effectively tackle symptoms of itching, but to protect and moisturize the skin as well.
What I love about this: compact roll on, easy to carry around with you all throughout of your day to day activity in your bag or pockets x
Of all the above, the Agua de Florida seems like your All in One Go To product due to versatility and purpose for it uses below;
✔ Perfume ✔ Fabric Freshener

✔ Fabric Freshener
✔ Surface Cleaner ✔ Sanitizer ✔Relax and Destress ✔ Religious Offerings
I spray this every once in awhile in our room to repel negative energy while I work ( I do work from home sine Pandemic happened) Surprisingly, my dear daughter have tried and (an 18 year old college student) loved this as a perfume. So it’s not just Tita approved but a teener approved to!
A new candle experience!
What I like about this; ✔ Aromatherapy ✔ treat minor skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dry or cracked skin, and rough cuticles. ✔ soy wax is plant based, vegan, biodegradable and full of Vitamin E – everything that will benefit your skin.
Are you a big fan of gata-based dishes? If you’re someone who loves using the magic of coconut milk in your favorite recipes, then you’re probably familiar with how challenging it is to handle sometimes. Not because it is hard to cook with, but because of the preparation process when using it as an ingredient.
For example, if you are someone who prefers using freshly squeezed gata, then you might need to do the tedious task of squeezing your own coconut milk. If you’re lucky enough to get an already squeezed version from your suki at the market, however, then you usually need to use it as soon as possible to keep it from spoiling.
This can be a little challenging because it means that you always have to plan to cook your favorite gata dishes. But what if your loved ones want to have a taste of them stat and you don’t have time to run to the market anymore?
As a homemaker, cooking our family’s favorite dishes is one of the best ways that we show and express our love. There’s nothing more heartwarming than the thought of creating something that they can enjoy anytime when they want it. Jolly, the leading brand of packed fruits, vegetables and condiments, aims to answer common kitchen challenges by providing freshly packed ingredients straight to the pantries of homemakers without sacrificing quality. In the case of coconut-based dishes, the brand has two standouts that can finally give moms the chance to cook their family’s gata favorites anytime— Jolly Coconut Milk and Jolly Coconut Cream.
Both ingredients are made with 100 percent real coconuts and are packed with the creamy goodness of fresh gata that is as good and flavorful as the ones you get from the market. Coconut Cream or Kakang Gata has a thicker and richer consistency because it is made from pressing four parts shredded coconut in one part warm water while Coconut Milk (Gata) has a more liquid consistency (similar to cow’s milk) that is made from pressing one part shredded coconut in one part water.
Gata, regardless if it is in cream or milk form, is very versatile on its own. Whether you and your family are craving savory or sweet dishes, there is definitely a recipe where you can use this wonder ingredient. Coconut cream is perfect for savory dishes because its consistency provides a creamier and richer texture common in curries,. Use it for standout Pinoy favorites like Ginataang Isda, Chicken Curry, Ginataang Gulay, Bicol Express, and Laing. Check out our very own recipe for Bicol Express using Jolly Coconut Cream below.
3 to 4 tablespoons canola oil
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Add cubed pork belly and cook until the pork turns brown. Add shrimp paste.
Add Jolly Coconut Cream and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Add water if the sauce becomes too thick.
Add chopped siling labuyo. Remove from heat and serve with hot steaming rice.
Coconut milk, on the other hand, has a unique taste and texture that can give your desserts and beverages a distinct flavor. Crack open a can of it if you’re craving sweet goodies like Maja Blanca, Bibingka, Ginataang Bilo Bilo, Biko, and Ginataang Mais. Here’s our very own recipe for Maja Blanca using Jolly Coconut Milk.

1 1/2 cups fresh milk
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup latik

Place in a large saucepan and cook while stirring constantly over low heat until thick.
Pour into small mold containers. Cool, then refrigerate until firm.
Top with grated cheese or latik.

Our family is so into casual clothing. We rarely wear events clothing like formal or dresses and something fancy! All of us are fond of just wearing t-shirts and pants or shorts. Especially for the past 3 years when we are all stuck in the house nowhere to go due to Pandemic. Most us are just in jammies and house clothes.
Now that we are starting to move around and go out often again, time to update our closet. I have thrown plenty of old and overgrown shirts. Now that my son has turned 16. His style for clothing has changed. He’s no longer into animal prints and loud colors in shirts but is now into those geeky t-shirts.
He asked me if we can go to the mall to look for some. Since we are quite busy and my schedule wouldn’t fit in to go out for the next few days as I needed to submit some work deadlines. I told him we can just search online for a Geek Shop and then find the right size for him. We can always read reviews and experiences from customers so this can save us more instead of going out.
I stumble upon online on this Geek Store that offers a lot of geeky and funny shirts like the below ones who my son have chosen and added to cart. I am also thinking of buying one for myself as this definitely also fits me! Haha! Will be choosing a different colour and a bigger size for me.
They not only cater to shirts but also accessories like this funky bracelet below.
My son said this is really a cool website and recommend to his friends too. We’ll see how it goes for the online loots.
I now have 2 grown up children and no longer kids but are now teenagers! An 18 years old gal and 16 years old son. One of the things I missed doing things for them is taking them to a shopping without them imposing on me what they like and don’t like. Haha!
Now they have their own taste and preferences in clothing. They no longer like mismatching color outfits nor like to to be in jumper and of course, onesies! I used to love to be in the baby clothing store in the mall and spend few hours looking a round for those little shirts, shorts, dresses and buying costumes even if I don’t know the theme yet. Any mommies out there that can relate, raise your hand! 🙂
Those were the good days! But there are still time that I go and search for kids clothing store online when I have to buy them as gifts for friend’s kids and relatives on special occasions and important events like birthdays, baptism, Christmas, new year’s, etc. I believe that buying kids clothing will never cease as part of our lives.
I am looking around now for baby & kids hats for a friend’s daughter and son who will both turn 2. Yes, they are twins! How lucky parents and lovely surprise for a big growing family to have twins!
I am eyeing on these different types of hats perfect for kids! I wanted to buy these instead of the usual clothing as this is perfect accessories that would match up their dresses and can be used in different weathers.
They can go casuals on the pattern hat. The bucket is perfect on a sunny or fishing activity for their family and the knitted ones for the cold season.
I love how this shop offer different kinds of kid’s clothing and accessories. A one stop shop of everything you need.
Teachers can change lives with the right mix of chalk and challenges.
From kindergarten to college, our teachers have played a huge role in shaping who we are today. There are a lot of memories where classrooms are lit up with joy whenever the favorite educator walks in. Without teachers and professors, where would we be now?
We discovered through big data research that professors need competent online assistance when selecting appropriate teacher supplies and clothes for the classroom. After all, they deserve the best. That is why these are the perfect go-to gifts or recommendations for you favorite teacher!
The perfect teacher store has a wide variety of everything a teacher might need in class. Equipped with trendy designs and a chic sense of style, our teachers would definitely enjoy the contents of this store!
Moreover, these really stylish and fashionable teacher t-shirts are up for grabs:
This graphic tee with grammatical rules are sure to tickle the minds of those who enjoy the English subject.
Teachers have more options when purchasing teaching supplies thanks to the store’s constant supply of exquisitely crafted, richly textured educator products at affordable pricing. They want to make teachers’ lives and careers better. And of course, we all sincerely wish that every teacher can advance more quickly in their academic careers.
Rex Education hosted a press conference recently, bringing together key organizations committed to educating people about piracy and stopping the illegal reproduction and distribution of copyrighted content.
Present at the event were leaders and representatives from the Philippine Association of Law Schools, the Association of Law Students of the Philippines, , the Legal Education Board, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines, the National Book Development Board, the Coordinating Council of Private Educational Associations of the Philippines, the National Bureau of Investigation, Association of Administrators in Hospitality Hotel and Restaurant Management Educational Institution, the Philippine Librarians Association, the Philippine Council of Deans and Educators in Business, the Philippine Association of Collegiate Schools of Business, Philippine Association for Teachers and Educators, Professional Criminologists Association of the Philippines, Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities and the Philippine Educational Measurement and Evaluation Association.
Piracy is defined as the unauthorized reproduction and distribution of copyrighted content, including but not limited to books, movies, music, and the like. In the Philippines, anti-piracy legislation is strengthened by Republic Act 8293 or the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines that protects and secures the exclusive rights of scientists, inventors, artists and other gifted citizens to their intellectual property and creations.
The press conference is a part of REX’s anti-piracy campaign, which was launched last September 16, 2022 at the Manila International Book Fair. The primary objective of the campaign is to curb, if not eradicate, content piracy by educating, communicating, and instilling among our colleagues, families, and children a true appreciation of the value of one’s own work. REX’s efforts in this direction are also in recognition and support of the relentless hard work of intellectual property law enforcement agencies in the country.
“We should continue to educate, communicate, and instill among our colleagues, families, and children a true appreciation of the value of one’s own work. In this sense, we are all duty-bearers. But above that, we are Filipinos,” said Atty. Dominador Buhain, chairman of Rex Education. “ Aside from our laws, what also binds us are our values, our sense of pakikipagkapwa, of pagpapakatao, our pride in our own work, and our respect for each other and of each other’s work.”
Over the past year, the campaign has gained the attention of various organizations with similar sentiments. Stakeholders from the education sector, along with consumers and learners, have all come together to express their support for the movement. Above all, there is a call to protect creators and all their intellectual property in all its forms.
“Throughout our rich history, we recognize and respect one truth about what we do: We are able to accomplish so much because of our people. REX has immense pride for the talented and hardworking individuals who pour their creativity, knowledge, and skills in the development of our learning materials, and these are not limited to books,” said Atty. Dominador Buhain, chairman of Rex Education.
Now that we are slowly getting back face to face from our old and usual routines since the pandemic. It’s now time to go back onsite and say goodbye to working from home. Bid goodbye with Google and Zoom meetings. It means seeing your colleagues physically, time to get back with those busy meetings, coordinating and be physically present once again.
Start to reorganize your outfit and checkout if those old clothes still fit! Or is it time to get new ones as you need to size up?! Now, you have an important event coming up that would require you to wear a semi formal to formal clothes. However, you don’t feel confident with those bulging and excess skin showing off that you got from being stuck at home for more than 2 years of no physical exercise, binge eating and trying out those cooking sessions you watch online during your breaktime 🙂
The best and easiest way to shape up without going through drastic diet is to look for shapewear dress. This way, you don’t have to worry as going on a diet will definitely took sometime for it to take effect. Love that shapewear is now paving its way to boost confidence and give your body that flattering and curve instantly.
Women used to hide those flabs by wearing clothes that are uncomfy, out of style and definitely pricey.
But look at the below nice shapewear clothing that is giving you that flattering and curve shaped body. It snugs yet stretchy fit but definitely still comfortable to wear
You will definitely see the Shapewear before and after difference when worn. Back in the day, the only way to hide your extra flabs was to wear the old fashioned corsets that definitely takes a lot of time to wear. But with shapewear, it has been incorporated the technology that makes it contour your shape perfectly and comfortable for you to wear over long hours without giving and issues. It also corrects your posture that is good for physical health and fitness. It is a good investment for you have pair or two to avoid future issues to give you that confident with your body.
I believe it would be an exciting Valentine’s Day celebration this time around as we’ve been all restricted going out for the past 2 Valentines occasion due to pandemic. I remember, just being at home for the past 2 years and just ordering food delivery to celebrate Valentines! Most of high school students have also missed the usual Valentine’s day party as they are only set to have the online class hence face to face class nor gathering and parties are not allowed. Now is the perfect time to update closet and empty out old clothing and time to replenish wardrobe with new sets of fresh and stylish outfits.
We all knew how fashion evolves and trends usually vary every year. The best way to keep up is to be always on the look. You can always check out social media platform via FB, IG, TikTok where everything’s just a tap away, you definitely knew what’s hot in the news. When it comes to outfit. I always go for the classics that never goes out of style, very easy to mix and match and most of all, it is not hard to find when shopping!
This coming Valentine’s special day is a perfect occasion to go on classics, most especially for ladies out there. I made a research on 3 outfit inspiration every gal can try out. Glad to find out the Bubledon Valentine’s Day Deals 2023. They got the wide variety of options to choose from. Ranging from simple, classy, casual and formal attires.
The first thing to consider when choosing what dress to wear is the comfort. Yes, it is essential you can move around freely, checkout the fabric, make sure also to note the area where you are going to so you know if you need to adjust on thickness, going sleeveless or long sleeves.
Color. Of course, red has always been the in color of the day. But some people don’t like red or simply they feel they it doesn’t compliment their skin tone and that is okay. Can go for loud color, neutral, basics or whatever that you know you can carry well.
Fit. depending upon your body shape, you can choose from either loose or body contouring shape dresses.
You can never go wrong in whichever style you want to carry on. The Midi above can be in between a semi formal to casual one. While the Bodycon Maxi Dress is on the casual one but still you can make it formal by adding up a pair of blazer and accessorize and choose another shoes aside from the usual sandals.
I hope you all get to enjoy your date this Valentines with your special someone or friends and family!
