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...

What Makes A Prayer Powerful?

What Makes A Prayer Powerful?

Have you ever wondered what makes a prayer powerful?  Or why is it that some people seem to get the answers to their prayers right away while the answers seem to take forever for others?  I, myself, was asked these questions one time by a friend and until recently, I honestly didn’t have an answer.  It has remained a big mystery to me as well. But now, I’m here to present an answer to the big question, “What makes a prayer powerful?”.  I wish I could say that my mind came up with this answer but no....

A Clean, Safe And Healthy Kitchen In 13 Easy Steps

After a year of traveling and staying in different resorts and hotels, I admit, I have missed taking care of my family by doing the usual “domestic goddess” tasks around our home; you know… the simple things, like cooking our meals, doing the laundry, cleaning the house, etc. Now that we are here in Texas, even though we will only be here for a few months, I’m finally getting my chance! If you’ve noticed that I haven’t been writing many posts lately, it’s because I have been busy catching up in my role...

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palette was released in November of last year.  I only got mine a couple of months ago at Sephora in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia because none of the malls I came across in Phuket, Thailand had Sephora (which is one of the very few stores that carries the Urban Decay brand). In my opinion, every woman should have in her collection at least one of the three Naked Palettes from Urban Decay.  I’d even go so far as to say that if you should only have or could only afford to have one eye shadow palette in...

Flying With Malaysia Airlines

When it was time for my family to fly out of Malaysia, it was during the peak of the whole flight MH370 mystery.  Therefore, you can just imagine my family’s hesitation on booking a flight with Malaysia Airlines.  We considered every other airline that suited our budget but purposely avoided checking Malaysia Airlines.  In light of the events surrounding the disappearance of MH370, we were unsure about the safety measures that the airline company took and we weren’t about to take any chances. Ironically, somebody...

OXY Cover Acne Pimple Medication | Review

It’s the day before an important event, and you suddenly develop a big, shiny, swollen red zit on your face!  Don’t you just hate that?  And don’t you hate it even more when that happens to be your everyday dilemma? You go to work and you interact with people six days a week and oh, by the way, your unwelcome guest brings a few more of its friends along and they all seem to have decided to take permanent residency on your face! You’re then left with a choice between leaving the nasty li’l suckers alone...

The “No Makeup” Makeup Look (Updated)

Three years ago, I introduced four fabulous products that I said would be all you’ll need in order to achieve that “no makeup” makeup look. Now, I am sharing with you a video demonstration of my step-by-step routine for achieving the “no makeup” makeup look, using an updated lineup of products I’ve personally started using between the time I published the previous post and perhaps as recent as a few months ago. Although I highly recommend the products I used on the video tutorial, you may use whatever brands...

An Open Letter To Gwyneth Paltrow | My Thoughts

As an actress, I like Gwyneth Paltrow.  I found her so endearing in Shallow Hal, Shakespeare In Love, and even more in the Iron Man movies.  What’s not to like about her?  She’s beautiful, she has flawless skin, a perfectly svelte figure that would have every woman cursing the day she’s ever eaten a cupcake, a fashion maven, a gifted singer, a momtrepreneur!  She also has a lifestyle blog and three cookbooks published (every Mom Blogger’s dream)! It’s undeniable, she has been living a...
