Last month my family and I went on a five-day cruise on the Superstar Virgo. Since none of us had been on a cruise before, it was a new experience we all were eager to try. If you’ve been keeping up with my posts and my Instagram account, you know that my family loves to travel. We like to visit old and new places, and we’re an adventurous bunch.
Some days I just feel like there’s never enough time for everything, and that life is tiring. Correction, “adutling” is tiring. Busy days just eat me up alive. Work. Chores. Sleep. Repeat. By the time I get into bed, I feel like the day was a blur.
I was at that point again a couple of days ago. I had slipped into the sheets, fresh form the shower, and I took my book. I was about to flip through the pages to carry on where I had left off when I heard a faint sound. My husband was fast asleep. I could hear him breathe faintly despite the sound of the air conditioner, and he murmured a few inaudible words. Probably dreaming of work–haha, yes he does a lot! It was then that I realized something I had failed to give importance to while trying to make it through each busy day.
Life is too short. To be truly present in every moment is something I should always strive for. We had just experienced a scary incident last month. If things did not turn out as they did, I wouldn’t know if we’d be here. How could I have forgotten so fast. It may be tiring, it may feel like such a routine, but I can’t let myself forget that it’s precious. All of it.
What was the hype all about? Oh.. it’s Anne Curtis’ makeup line, I thought. I wondered if it really was something worth trying.
A few days after the launch, my officemates were talking about BLK and we were all so very curious. And a day or two after that, one of them bought a matte lipstick in the shade, Fearless. We all instantly tried it and well, the rest was history! Here’s a photo of us all wearing Fearless.
Well, I am.
I’ve read and heard (from several people) that washing your hair every day–and twice a day as we do here–can be damaging and drying for your hair. Naturally, I got really curious about dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is said to soak up oil, add volume, and leave your hair fresh all day without damaging the hair. That got me right away so I started reading up some more and here’s what I found.
Last July, the Perreras family decided to visit Bohol for a relaxing summer getaway. I had been to Bohol before, but it was only a quick overnight stopover so I wasn’t able to see much. Luckily, during this second trip, the family made sure to see what the city had to offer, and allot enough time to enjoy the beach.
We, Filipinos, are so lucky. We live within reach of the most beautiful beaches. Case in point: Amanpulo. If you’re following me on Instagram, you would have already gotten a glimpse of this breathtaking island. Was it such a tease? Well, allow me to share with you more about Amanpulo now.
While most budding teens experience the ultimate Boracay graduation trip, I, on the other hand, was only able to visit the island with family. It’s no secret that I have strict parents. So every time friends and officemates would invite me to a trip in Boracay, I would decline straight out. I think the wild stories about the night life really made my parents (maybe more of my dad), worry every time they’d toy about the idea of letting their only daughter go to Boracay without their supervision.
