Quarantine has stripped us of the privilege of going outside. Having to stay at home made these trying times tougher than it already is. Pre-COVID, everyone just went outside and went wherever they wanted to go. Looking back, it felt strange seeing people from different places get together in a random location. It’s been two years, but travelling felt like a dream.
There are so many great spots closed off due to lockdown. Around the world, there were 1 billion fewer international tourist arrivals. People had no choice but to stay at home and follow the protocols. Luckily, there were improvements in other places. COVID-19 cases were decreasing in some countries, and soon enough, people could go outside.
Memories of walking through beautiful sceneries are nostalgic. The smell of salty air on a beach. A park’s cold breeze in the morning. These are all familiar places we could be in right now. As a child, I’ve always wanted to travel around the world. Paris, Japan, Greece, and all the other countries too many to mention. There’s just something extraordinary in knowing that there are thousands of places you can go to and explore.
One of the places I like going to are museums. History lingers in every piece of art being preserved there. Speaking of museums, the specific museum I’ve been meaning to go to is The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto, Canada. It has a reputation for having an outstanding collection of international culture and history from different periods of time all over the world. Its appearance looks very modern, too. The building itself has sharp, geometric angles that suits the museum’s creativity and elegance.
Since we’re here talking about Toronto, I just can’t not include the CN Tower. Standing at 553 meters, the observation areas in the tower must be striking. Imagine being there and seeing all the scenery atop the CN. Plus, it is said that the tower is a famous landmark, since it can be seen from anywhere in Ontario. Seeing a city in the night must be great. All the different lights; headlights, stoplights, signs, and the ones from buildings— they look like giant glitter scattered across a cityscape. I am really keen to looking homes for sale in Toronto and would to settle there. Who knows our future!
Moving to a place like Toronto is like a home away from home! Since I’ve been used to living the city lights and the fast moving phase of the city life, I knew it is a great place where things are pretty much the same, only the weather I think is the thing I need to adjust on as they have the four distinct season and I am only used to either rain or shine! 🙂
This is another thing I miss about travelling. Seeing normal things and romanticizing them in my head. It’s different when you’re in another place, because it’s like seeing everything for the first time. Say, you’re in Korea. You’re in a great part of town, and the sunset is all gold and oranges. When you look back, you won’t just remember a sunset. You’ll think, “I saw a beautiful Korean sunset when I visited years ago.”
Roughly 10 years ago, my family and I went to a famous aquarium in our country. It was a great outing, and I had developed an interest in marine life. Sadly, things got busy and I never got to visit an aquarium again. Going back to Toronto (I really want to visit there), there is a famous aquarium called Ripley’s Aquarium. The place is famous for an underwater tunnel with a moving sidewalk. There are literally fish everywhere, behind a glass. It must be a surreal experience.
There are so many places I want to go to. Yet here I am, stuck at home, sitting in front of a screen and writing my longing away. I swear, when this pandemic ends and everyone and everything is safe again, I will pack my bags and fly out somewhere. Being stuck at home made me regret not going out and exploring more. So when the day comes and the world is back to normal, I will cherish every moment that I spend walking outside.
Getting a haircut is all fun and games until you regret it and want your old hair back. This is common among women, myself included, because making a permanent decision isn’t always so easy. That’s why it is easier to settle for something easily reversible. A washable hair dye. A henna tattoo. And for the hair, clip in hair extensions. It’s becoming a very popular accessory, especially among teenagers. It’s easy to apply, and at the end of the day, you can just unclip it and let your natural hair rest.
The main reason as to why these hair extensions are popular is because it’s accessible and really easy to use. The idea of having an extra chunk of hair to add more volume to yours is a happy thought to have.
Uniwigs is an online store that sells beautiful and natural wigs. Their products have a wide range of hair accessories, specializing in wigs. For a reasonable price, customers have bought Uniwigs’ products because of the high-quality material it was made from.
These hair products are essential for a lot of people, especially for the ones working on to build their self-esteem. People experiencing hair loss may get tired from all the serums and supplements that they take for hair growth. Sometimes, a quick fix is what they need. Wigs are great substitutes for many things. While waiting for the natural hair to grow, popping on a wig for a while can boost confidence.
For some people, wigs are strange because it looks ‘unnatural’ or just different. It always depends on the brand and quality of the wig. Human hair wigs are the key for natural-looking hair. Of course, as the name suggests, the wigs are made from 100% real human hair.
All the products from Uniwigs are unique, just like how hair from every person is. It has a natural, yet somehow a “standing out” quality to it; in a good way. From wigs to hair toppers, Uniwigs has it all.
At the end of the day, having healthy hair is what’s important. As long as you are confident with the way you look, let it be. Hair is an important part of our identity. We dye it, cut it, style it. Wigs are a representation of how much fun we could do with our own hair. And if you don’t have it, that’s what wigs are for.
When Adobe Flash ended on the 31st of December, Generation Z (both my children included) grieved. It held their precious childhood online games. Y8, Friv, and so much more I couldn’t name. More than 10 years ago, my 6 year-old daughter always wanted to go on Y8 so she could play her favorite ‘food serving’ games. She loved to play mini-games, in contrast to her brother who is into RPG and Gacha games. Their tastes in gaming might be different, but because they grew up with modern technology, it is understandable for them to have a soft spot for online games.
My childhood games were mostly outdoors. If I remember correctly, it was only when I had the Nokia 5110 that I played a lot of Snake. Then sometime in my life I tried playing the famous “Candy Crush”. Games are addicting and fun, and it has a ridiculously huge variety. It’s impossible for everyone to not have a game they like.
Ever since quarantine was implemented, my kids had been very stressed with online classes. I understood, since it is a huge advancement in terms of set-up. Inevitably, screen time is extended for multiple hours in just a day. It was a wonder for me, as an adult who works from home (and also faces so much radiation in a day) for my teens to cope so well with being stuck at home. I noticed my son staying up late these days. I was curious as to why, so my daughter told me that ever since we’ve been stuck at home, he’s been playing games to cope with the stress.
It wasn’t much of a surprise to me. What IS a surprise though, is my daughter telling me that she’d also used games to cope with quarantine. I thought she’d moved on from her mini-game addiction. Turns out, she did, but she accidentally found a website that offered new games. I think it was the sense of nostalgia that she held on to, it was a really nice website, too.
She was coping well so much that I tried out playing what she was playing too. It’s called Tap Supermarket, and categorized as a simulation game. As a stressed out person who has no coping mechanism, it was so refreshing to have fun again. I didn’t know how the rush and thrill of a clicker game can bring back so many happy memories.
The colors were refreshing to my sight, since all I face on my screen everyday are grays and blacks and neutrals. Strangely, I was drawn to the simplicity of the game. I had to mention this because it was just that good.
Anyway, because of these games, I remembered to take a break. Whenever things would go messy, I held on to the idea that there’s something out there that will give me joy. Even for a minute.
The rise of online gaming increased drastically in the past few years. I always thought it was ridiculous for these teenagers (and even adults) to sit in front of a screen and play all day. Now I understand. So much that sometimes I question myself, “Am I a gamer now too?”
Who does not love coffee? I bet most of us had coffee as part of their everyday routine, most especially in the morning to give oneself that little push to keep up on the entire day. Do you like sugar, cream, milk or anything that goes along with?
For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes.
While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day.
What About Sugar-Free Coffee?
For health-conscious individuals, especially diabetics, turning to sugar-free coffee mixes seems to be the only option. This meant enduring tasteless cups of coffee just to satisfy their caffeine fix —until Stevia came along.Stevia is the low calorie, zero sugar sweetener that tastes so much better than artificial sweeteners.
Stevia is an herb with a sweet-tasting extract that comes from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. It has been enjoyed since pre-Columbian South America where indigenous people used the herb to sweeten their tea and other drinks. The plant’s taste stems from steviol glycosides, molecules which are 250–300 times sweeter than regular sugar.
It became popular among health-conscious individuals because stevia has a very low caloric content. This makes it perfect for dieters and people who are trying to lose weight. Moreover, Stevia makes coffee and tea taste so much better without adding any calories. Aside from beverages, Stevia is also used as an alternative sweetener when cooking or baking.
The Health Advantages of Stevia
Stevia is a safe, healthy sugar substitute that can sweeten up food without the negative health effects of refined sugar. It’s also associated with several impressive benefits such as reduced calorie intake, managed blood sugar levels, and minimized risk of cavities.
Additionally, while other sugar substitutes like Aspartame have been linked with cancer, there’s no evidence linking stevia to cancer since it is a natural ingredient.
This means you can add stevia to dishes and drinks without fear that you’re taking too much sugar, or that you’ll get sick a few years down the road.For coffee lovers, it’s also good to note that locally-made Glorious Blend coffees and instant beverages have Stevia as its natural sweetener.
The blend of natural and healthful ingredients make the drink not only refreshing and safe, but also good for one’s overall health.
The Glorious Blend boasts a full line of healthy drinks, including a 7-in-1 healthy coffee mix. This special blend is made with proven medicinal ingredients like Malunggay, Mangosteen, Calcium, Gotu Kola, and sweetened with Sweet & Fit Stevia.
What’s even better is that the Glorious Blend 7in1 Coffee is non-acidic and promotes regular bowel movement. The Glorious line-up also includes the 3-in-1 coffee mix with Stevia; 7-in-1 choco mix; 4-in-1 coffee with Malunggay; 5-in-1 coffee mix with Brown Rice; and the MaxiTrim coffee.
All Glorious Blend beverages use Stevia which has no calories, no carbohydrates, and zero glycemic index. All of their instant drinks will keep you alert and energized throughout the day. Also, Glorious Blend products are locally sourced and manufactured.
Their company supports local farmers, stevia growers, and other agricultural communities.So if you’ve been cutting back on drinking coffee because of health problems like diabetes or hyper acidity, Glorious Blend coffee mixes are here to help. You can enjoy all the aroma and flavor of freshly made coffee all day —without the guilt!
2020 has presented numerous challenges to Filipinos, more so, to women. The stress and pressure of pushing forward has left a lot of Filipinas with more on their plates than they could handle. Despite this, women have continued to be the main care providers of their homes, their children, all on top of maintaining a full-time career.
This leaves us wondering, how do Filipinas keep their bodies healthy for their families? We asked three Filipinas how they were able to push through with their daily responsibilities on top of taking good care of their loved ones, and still serve as a greater inspiration for many women.
Besides the usual chores and daily tasks, Mommy Jenica shares that she has been busy with her home-based business making cakes and baked goods. With a business that requires her to exert time and attention to detail being loaded with multiple orders, this leaves her exhausted. “’Yung pagod ka na pero mas napagod ka sa ligpitin. But thankfully I have my husband… to help me.” And yet she continues to struggle keeping her health in check since she took on more responsibilities in their household.
Mommy Anne on the other hand, found herself decluttering as her biggest and most fulfilling challenge on top of taking care of her family. She juggles her night shift full-time job and being a full-time mom during the day. “Sleep was something that was so scarce. Still is. And I’m definitely feeling the adverse impact to my health.”
While for Mommy Ria, due to the educational system shifting to homeschooling, she had to take initiative as her child’s teacher. “Preparing lessons and activities took my time and energy on top of the usual household chores and part time work.” Like many Filipinas, they have a lot of tasks to do on the daily, which leads them to skip meals and overwork. According to Mommy Anne, the past year has led her to closely monitor her health, which many moms can relate to. With their careers and household responsibilities happening all at the same time, it’s easy to lose track of their immunity. How do they maintain their blood healthy? With the help of Multivitamins + Minerals (Sangobion IRON+).
By eating nutritious meals, practicing regular exercise, getting proper sleep, and taking Multivitamins + Minerals (Sangobion IRON+) to help maintain their blood health and keep their immunity at its peak. Through these routines they’re able to keep up with their tight schedules and provide the care that their families need.
Multivitamins + Minerals (Sangobion IRON+) is an iron supplement with vitamins and minerals that helps to replenish iron stores and increases red blood cell levels in the body. It has ferrous gluconate, a type of iron salt which allows better absorption of iron in the body, Folic acid, and vitamin B12 which are vital for production of red blood cells and during pregnancy. It also contains Vitamin C which helps improve iron absorption, and Copper sulphate and manganese sulphate that helps in the metabolic processes of blood cell production.1
Recommended intake is one to two capsules daily, during or after meals, or as prescribed by your doctor.
As a blood health ally of many Filipinas, Multivitamins + Minerals (Sangobion IRON+) helps to treat iron deficiency anemia that can lead to decreased immunity and increased susceptibility to infection. Iron deficiency anemia happens when the blood has a lower amount of red blood cells or hemoglobin than normal. This can cause the body to feel weak, tired, dizzy, look pale, and experience headaches. 2
As 2020 nears its end, Filipinos are hopeful for the positive changes that the new year holds especially to their family’s health. Multivitamins + Minerals (Sangobion IRON+) supports empowered women to maintain their blood health in check and keep their immunity at its peak so they can continue to provide the care that their family needs, while being able to accomplish their daily tasks.
I could still remember how I started my journey in blogging. I was sitting in front of our office computer just browsing the internet. I was thinking how I could be more productive and earn online when done with my office tasks.
I typed in Google “How to earn money online” I remember being redirected to a personal blog then. I am quite amused how the author have documented her daily life and I landed on a specific blogpost of her explaining how she earned income out of doing her passion for writing. I never really had a thought then of what is blogging all about. I just read her daily updates and it led me to create my very own ‘blog’, I registered to a free domain platform.
See how I hit my first blogpost back then. With all the wrong grammar and improper use of punctuation and not wary on when to use capital letters.
See how it seems like I’m just sending an sms to myself. Haha! I did not edit it to correct as I wanted to see how I fair through the years.
I have gained online friends which I have most met personally and been in touch with them up to this date! Looking back, blogging has been my comfort zone, it also serves as my ‘tracker’ for each of my kids milestones through their growing years. From their toddler years until now that they have fully grown up and in their teenager years.
Back in the day, there are many ways on how you get to find your niche in the so called of blogging and how to increase readership and community to build in order to support each other.
Blog hop, tagging, commenting and exchanging links are just some of the few activities bloggers do in order to increase your blog’s authority, leaving blog links in order for each other to visit and read each others blog as the usual activity that keep blogger’s busy then. Has anyone still remember Entrecard?
I remember paying about $5 to have my entrecard made in order to jibe with my blog’s template then, it’s some sort of your blog’s business card as widget on your blog. Seems like a networking where you get to visit each other and drop your card to them and earn some points and credits which you can use if you want to advertise your blog on other site.
Then comes along the so called blog meme! You get to answer questions and post on your blog and tag along a blogger friend to answer and pass along to others.
One you have ‘established’ your website/blog, you can try to apply to different paid blogging sites where you can earn on the side while blogging. There are a lot of numerous paid blogging sites then. I can name a few and this has been for sometime as source of blogger’s excitement. Then the rise of the black hat and white hat of SEO.
In order for you to get a lot of opportunities, your blog needs to get a good ranking in Google PR (Page rank) Every blogger’s nightmare is getting the 0 for every update. Haha! I think the highest I got then was Google PR 3. Everyone gets excited and proudly post a badge of it in the sidebar ads! Google pagerank 10 would represent only the most authoritative sites on the web. I couldn’t remember who had it then.
It also came to a point where I have lost the ‘ blogging momentum ‘ and would be in a ‘blogging hiatus’ But I would still come back ever once in a while and as I kept to myself that I won;t give up ‘My Life in this Wonderful World’ online.
After more than a decade, blogging has evolved in so many better ways, hence the birth of the Influencers era in the past 3 years (not quite sure exactly when). Then everyone and even bloggers has created their very own ‘Vlog’.
From ‘blogging’ to ‘vlogging’ and everyone has now been raving and creating their own spaces in this new season of online existence. From way back then as known bloggers to becoming now as known influencer such as vlogger and youtuber. The now growth of FB pages, Instagrammers, Tiktokers and the likes!
The engagement of the followers is what really make these influencers paves way to their success. Their dedication to keep up and engage in a way they give their followers benefits of knowledge, products and services. Making them feel not just a typical fan but of the same level of closeness you give to your family and friends.
The more reason I want to keep going and hoping to more years of my existence in this online world we live in now.
One year into quarantine and our mental health has been spiralling from different reasons. One of them is not getting enough physical activity. We’re all just stuck at home, sitting, if not lying down in bed. Fatigue is a familiar feeling and back pains have become recurrent. As time passes by, we will become more and more unproductive. We need to make an effort.
With tumble mat, having an active lifestyle won’t seem to be an effort. You can practice gymnastics or other sports that need safe landings with this product! Like a trampoline, this mat is tons of fun.
This fresh blue tumble mat certainly would look good in your yard. Of course, there are a lot of other colors to choose from. TUMBLEMAT sells high quality products for a low price. Their tumble tracks are sold to countries around the world with good customer reviews.
Another product of theirs are the air tumble mat rolls . These tools can help you practice with tumbling tricks, walkovers, and other gymnast moves! Like the tumble mat, these rolls are also made from quality materials and products.
We don’t know how long this pandemic will last, so we should make good decisions for our health and have some fun. With TUMBLEMAT, you’re doing both.
It’s been a year since we’ve been in quarantine. Nothing has changed and we are still not getting used to it. Lucky for some who were given the chance to work from home. For some, they still have to go out and be in a battle to earn as working from home is not an option for them.
One of the hardest part of being at home is the ability to move a lot. Personally, it’s a struggle as I have to face the computer for a long period of time. Meaning I am sitting for more than 8 hours a days with a little to chance to stand up for a quick break and a 1 hours lunch only. Glad I have found ways online to find an exercise routine online that one can do even if we’re just confined in our homes.
Stretching, I do take sometime when I feel so numb due to prolong sitting. I’ll do hand, arms and foot stretch in between typing. Haha! Sometimes, after getting back from Lunch break, I don’t sit straight away. As I have a hard time breathing especially when I feel full! I can feel the bulge around my tummy when sitting.
So to aid up, somebody have recommended to wear a best waist trainer belt, I must way a great way to do waist training, as you just have to wear it long enough each day to experiment with the best results, start off wearing it 1 hour a day and gradually get to 8 hours a day. it helps in eating small portion as it makes you feel fuller. Great right!
Or wear best shapewear bodysuit whenever we need to go out. it hides those unwanted bulges and giving you the sooth shaped figure. Perfect when you need to wear those formal dresses and sexy dress.
These Feelingirl waist trainer will be every women’s ally in keeping fit despite the limited chances to do the regular exercises outside the comfort of our homes. You don’t need to even go out to buy these shapewear as they are available online at FeelinGirl, it’s very easy as you just need to take a look on your sizes an they have the details in size chart that you can take a look and you would never go wrong with choosing the righ size for you.
Now that most of us are working from the comfort of our homes, we no longer have to spend too much time and effort in thinking of an outfit to wear to work or office. Any house dress would suffice since you’re just at home. Can even wear sleepwear the entire shift!.
However, we have to at least dress up a bit whenever we have to do video calls and online meetings, especially when the boss are attending 🙂 We have to still do the proper etiquette in wearing the right clothing even if it’s only online. What’s good about it is you can only dress up properly on top part! So I am looking online on where to get womens fashion sweaters that has different designs I can choose from.
Since we can’t go out to go to the malls and shop for clothing like we used to do before the pandemic to observe social distancing, we were all confined at the comfort of our homes and rely a bit more on online shopping. It is very helpful to just buy online and have things delivered right through our doorsteps for our essential needs like food, clothing and medicines. Without compromising on the health risk outside our home.
So I am searching for some more tops online that I can buy and add up to my “work from home outfit”
I love wearing casual tops that can also be worn during online meeting and still look casual smart by adding up additional accessory like scarves, pins, etc. Not to mention you can just wear house short or pajama on your bottom as it can’t be seen by your co workers in the camera. haha!
Holapick is a great online place that caters to women’s fashion needs in terms of clothing like shirts and dresses. The options are endless and the price is also a great catch with lots of discounts you can avail of.
