WHERE DID YOUR BONUS GO?


Are you done with your holiday shopping yet? I’m sure that at this point in time, most of you already are. Satisfied with the things you spent your money on? Hmm..? So, where did your bonus go? Did you spend it on worthwhile things? I hope so.. :P
This post is not meant to make you regret your shopping escapade but to remind you to take some time to reflect on your spending habit. Hehe.. :D I mean it’s okay if you bought a lot of new things this season, but I hope you had a spending plan and strictly followed it.  Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying we have to be hard on ourselves. It’s fine to go and buy what we want, but we should also not forget to save up. While this season is the best time to spend, it’s also the perfect time to increase our savings. C'mon guys, it’s for our future! :D

Well, it’s not that you have to keep all the bonus you received this Christmas. It’s just a matter of having the proper allocation. And how to do that? Here’s a simple tip that can get you started. Use the PROSPERITY FORMULA or the 10-20-70 principle. The 10% of your salary is for your tithes. It’s the Lord who blesses us with good health, work and income, so we might as well give back. The 20% should be kept as your savings. You can save it in the bank as your emergency fund or invest it in facilities that earn interest like mutual funds. Invest it for your future. If you want to save more, then better! Finally, use the remaining 70% to all the splurging you want. That's for your food, clothes, gadget, etc. Now, you can go shopping without that guilty feeling! 



See? That simple! You can follow this principle every time you receive your salary or income. Keep practicing this and I’m sure you will enjoy your earnings not only now but all the more in the future! =)

MISSING SUMMER IN DECEMBER


It’s been rainy these past few days and I know this season is not the best time to go to the beach. But that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it anymore, right? =) I kind of miss the sun, so I’m going to share my summer experience in no other than- Boracay!
Last summer, I had a chance to visit this beautiful island. It was a quick visit though. Haha! The trip was actually for a wedding we attended in Kalibo. And since we were already there, we took the moment to visit Bora as well. Here are the never-before-seen photos of this adventure. <3


Sadly, we didn’t have the luxury of time 'coz we only had an afternoon to enjoy this white sand beach. But still, it was a well spent day!
I wish I had more time to explore this isle. Oh well, there's always gonna be next time. :p
What do you think? :D

MANILA FASHION FESTIVAL: SPRING/ SUMMER 2015


Wondering what's hot next season? To give you an idea, here are the collections of some of our country's sought after designers for Spring/Summer 2015, that were presented during the recently concluded Manila Fashion Festival.



Manila Fashion Festival is the newest fashion event in the Philippines organized by management agency, Art Personas, with the aim of revolutionizing the local fashion industry. They had their pioneering show last November 11, 12 and 13 at Green Sun building where they featured the works of our country’s young and creative designers namely Arin, Jaz Cerezo, Cheetah Rivera, Veejay Floresca, Yevgeniya Alexandrovna Yushkova, Anthony Ramirez, Vania Romoff, Chris Diaz, Mark Bumgarner, Sassa Jimenez, Renan Pacson, and Pablo Cabahug.
With the success of MFF's first event, their next shows will surely be anticipated by the fashion enthusiasts.

More about these trends in Megastyle’s article, Manila Fashion Festival 2014: Trendspotting and Stylebible’s Trend Spotting at the Manila Fashion Festival.

Lucky to have been invited to this glamorous event. Looking forward to the next. =)

GOING HOME


To visit Hong Kong once again was totally different experience from my previous one. We were in a hurry the last time we went there because we still had to go to Macau. This time we stayed longer and was able to tour around the city. And took more photos, of course! Haha! As I mentioned in my previous post, we went to Hong Kong for a conference. And on that same week, I had another training to attend to in Manila so we couldn’t stay any longer.

The whole trip was full of activities that's why I only had an opportunity to take pictures on the beach (where we stayed) on the last day.


On my flight home, I wanted to wear something comfy so I basically wore flats. And because I’m so fond of my hand-made accessories, I wore another bunch from my latest collection. This time, I had on my star necklace and candy bracelets! What do you think? =)

THE MAGICAL DAY [PART 2]


Hey there! If you think that my Disney adventure is already over... Well, not yet! There’s something else I would like to show you. The inner side shots of Disneyland Hotel! Our conference was held there so I had the privilege to see what's inside and take pictures. Entering it made me feel like I was a princess in my castle. Lol. And I think my attire for the day fits in! Formal but with a perky hint. ;) 
I just thought that Disneyland Hotel deserves more exposure and the pictures on my previous post were not enough. So here’s some more!


The garden was my favorite spot so I took as much pictures as I could.


What do you think? =)
