An affirmation that flowers are good expense

Back as a kid, I would love to pick a handful of wildflowers and putting them on empty jar. It’s just one of the random things I love doing other than swimming all afternoon and picking up seashells at the beach.

Today, as an adult living in the fast paced city life. I realized, I have become one of those who love buying and taking pictures of flowers. (not the expensive arrangement from a flower store that cost an arm and a leg).

 A habit I’m trying to continue each week. It’s nice to buy things that simply make you smile. 

If only I had the photography chops and a perfect natural light coming from an open window. My photo's would be divine. Which a factor that I should consider if I plan to look for a new apartment. but for now, I just need to change the paint to white and a good wall lighting will do the trick.

I would buy flowers during Sunday at Legaspi flea market and Wednesday at the right side entrance of Baclaran church, they are fresh and pocket friendly than flower shops.

Now let me count the ways in the most sensible and acceptable manner why you need to buy yourself a flower:

Because arranging them in a vase or your precious mason jar might scratch a creative itch.

Because it’s a relatively small gesture that will supply you with pleasure for days to come.

Because having beautiful surroundings help you to be the best you can be.

Because your favorite flowers don’t get the appreciation they deserve — except from you.

Because otherwise you might try to care for yourself through an unsupportive habit.

You’re a grownup, who have work and you can.

Nobody’s ever bought you flowers- the worst case.

Because looking at them stirs up emotions.

Or maybe you’ll inspire someone to do the same for them self.

• And it's worth a try.

Life is good!

H&M Philippines


You might be one of those who had been eager to have a peek, shop and saved moola since first hearing the widespread humor that H&M(  Hennes & Maruitz store) was opening in Manila. People asking: is it true? When?

Whichever category you were in, face the truth you have been made aware, consciously or not. How could you not? There was infinite surge of H&M model clad bigger than life billboards in Edsa, flooding instagram photos, twitter and in facebook.

The campaign was quite massive. Let’s admit it!


So yesterday it finally happened. The Swedish fashion brand opened its door in the Philippines at SM Megamall’s Mega Fashion Hall.

Hardcore fashion lovers and goers lined up as early as Thursday afternoon thou a private party for VIP shoppers got a preview before the day it was opened to public which charmed countless Filipinos because of unending updates of their social media accounts.

I did not of course, manage to be among the first few shoppers of the store, for the unreceding length of the queue was enough to kill off my inborn appetite for shopping…lol the truth is I have work that day which is a good excuse for this money trap:)

However, I’m still on the verge of curiosity and I know one of this days. I will find myself inside the store roaming and wondering around or if patience strikes me. I'll wait for the SM Makati branch to open which is way more accessible and most likely the hype already dissipate at that time.

I just wish that collections they collaborated with international designers likeAlexanderWang, Isabel Marant, Versace and Lanvin are available on the rocks and armed with a plentiful array of undergarments, accessories and bags.

Most of all, I do hope that H&M Philippines will hold to its brand know to be a wallet friendly fashion house than its foreign counterparts.

happy shopping! 

Life is good!

Coastal Cleanup Day

The ICC (International Coastal Cleanup) is the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean’s health and to bring awareness and combat the issue of marine debris. A dedicated day to improve, beaches, coastal regions and surrounding areas throughout the world.It has operated for over 26 years.

Last September 27 2014, together with my colleague and through the effort of our CSR Department, we were able to participate and give back to the nature.

The experience was both inspiring and sad. Sad because with gloves and a trash bag, I found our stretch of coast thoroughly inundated by waste of all kinds. Inspiring, because of many volunteers surrounding me who were committed to keeping the ocean clean and healthy.

Ocean trash is truly a global problem that affects human health. Endangers marine wildlife and cost states and nations millions in wasted resources and lost revenue. At its core, however, ocean trash is not an ocean problem: it is a people problem- perpetuated by our wrong choices, unwitting practices which we have adopted overtime.

Every second breath you take comes from the ocean, No matter where you live; your life depends on the ocean. 
Beyond the breaths you take, the ocean plays a critical role in regulating our weather and climate.
10 Things you can do for trash free seas:


The Ocean is a vital part of our life. We should fight to save it. There is after all no planet B. 
The ocean need our help to keep millions of pounds of trash away from it.
 Our everyday choice can help keep it clean.

just remember that we all love beach summer escapades:)

Life is good!
