12 Healthier Lifestyle Changes That Truly Make A Difference

On one of my more popular posts here on MyMy Blog, I have been asked questions by readers on how I managed to stay committed to any weight loss plan, let alone stick with healthier lifestyle changes to keep the weight off.  I’m not gonna lie to you, nor will I sugarcoat it – it’s been one heck of a journey! I too have given in to temptation (one too many times) of cheating on my diet plan or quitting halfway through it.  In my previous posts on weight loss and my journey to “a healthier...

Hippotherapy By Cradle U Therapy Ranch

Hippotherapy – a term derived from the Greek words “hippo” (horse) and “therapeuein” or “therapela” (to minister to; healing) – literally refers to treatment or therapy aided by a horse. It is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy in which a therapist uses the characteristic movements of a horse to provide carefully graded motor and sensory input for treatment of patients with neurological or other disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, head...

How Do You Deal With Depression?

I write this post brokenhearted and with tears in my eyes… Many of us were left wondering how a seemingly happy man – always cracking jokes, always making people laugh – like the late Robin Williams – could have possibly be so lonely and so broken inside… how someone as successful and loved as he was could have given up on life and believed that death was the only way by which he could find an escape and peace.  We were all left wondering.  We were all deeply affected and shattered. The apparent cause of...

House Guest Etiquette: How To Be A Good House Guest

A good house guest is someone that any host would cheerfully welcome into her home anytime.   As much as any house guest hopes to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay, it’s just as important to the host to be assured that she isn’t opening her home to a slob of a guest who will leave her home in complete disarray, making her life a living hell. I recently traveled to California to visit a few friends in and around the Los Angeles area.  Two friends, respectively, each invited me to stay at her house/apartment – an...

OOTD: Short ‘N Chic

In keeping with the title of this OOTD post, I’m going to keep it short and sweet as well.  I am still here on a brief vacation in LA but I wanted to share this with y’all right away. This outfit was what I wore last night when we went to dinner and then to a club called JJ’s in North Hollywood.  Needless to say, I had a wonderful time, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about (LOL)! When dinner and going clubbing is what’s on the agenda, you’re gonna want to wear something elegant but not...

Travel Bidet: A Hygiene Necessity For Women On The Go

It is not my business to discuss other people’s personal hygiene practices, nor is it my place to dictate to anyone how he or she should “handle their business” in the bathroom.  In my travels, I’ve learned to appreciate, accept and respect other people’s culture and practices and avoid comparing them with my own (culture and practices), as much as I can avoid it.  However, I have something great to share with you today, but I can’t do so without venturing into such areas, for reasons that will...

Burberry Lip Velvet | Review

Early this year, I finally got to try the Burberry Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipstick.  If I’m not mistaken, this line was introduced to the market two years ago with twelve stunning colors originally, but the Burberry shops in the Philippines didn’t sell their makeup products.  I wasn’t keen on purchasing makeup online so getting it from the Burberry website wasn’t an option for me either.  Unless I’m ordering something that I’ve already used many times before, when it comes to buying a new makeup...

Straight From My SingSnap Studio: DUETS

Many of you, by now, know that I also sing.  Music was my first love, and you know what they say about “first love”….  It never dies. So, from time to time, whenever I get the chance to do so, I record a song or two on SingSnap, or simply listen to my favorite Snappers.  It’s how I find release from every day stress. So today will be the first time ever that I’m going to publish a blog post that is mainly focused on my love for singing and on SingSnap.  I intend to make this a part of my blog...

Weekend Reflections: Miracle Of The Ring In The Toilet Bowl

Many of us who hear the word “miracle” immediately think of some magnificent, life-altering, newsworthy type of event taking place in the usual places like a hospital, or a church, or at a site of a tragedy. Google defines a miracle this way:“a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.”In simpler terms, a miracle is anything – big or small – that could not have happened without some kind of divine...

Elegance Has A New Color: The Crimson Hotel Manila (Part 2)

It’s been a looong while since I published the first part of my post on Crimson Hotel Manila and although this post is mainly for the purpose of sharing more photos taken during our week-long stay in the hotel, I still apologize that it has taken this long.  Honestly, Crimson Hotel Manila is such a beautiful hotel that I do regret having put this post in the back burner for far too long.  Since I first wrote about this hotel (What?  Six months?!  Seriously???), so many other reviews by other bloggers have sprung...

Surprisingly Easy Gourmet Lunchbox Meals

It’s back-to-school season once again in the Philippines! Every parent knows what this means.  Aside from all the expenses associated with the enrollment process and purchasing school items, getting the kids to eat nutritionally substantial meals while in school has been an ongoing dilemma. The problem with just handing our kids some lunch cash is that we can’t be completely sure what our kids are actually buying, how the food was prepared, and if our kids are making wise choices for their meals.  Most parents prefer...
