HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! One of the traditions every New Year is to make a New Year’s resolution, in which a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behavior, accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life at the start of a New Year. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? I did! I’ve been doing it since I’ve known about it and I've been failing after a few weeks and say, I'll try again next year.  So here I am, trying again for 2021 but this year will be different. I will be focusing on progress not on perfection.  And I will be sharing it in this blog because  there is a greater incentive to go out and do it when  someone knows what you need to do or what you want to achieve t o avoid having to explain why you didn’t to another person. That makes you  my  accountability partner . I hope you don't mind. Hehe! So, here's the 21 things I will do in 2021: 1. M ake sleeping early and waking up early a habit There ar


What day is it? It's the 336th day of 336 days! 2020 is almost over! How'd you feel about it? I feel like, "Wow! We've reached this far!" Imagine the series of devastating events that we've encountered along the way but here we are, we keep on going! We keep on fighting! No matter how broken we are... No matter how tired we are... So, why don't we tap our shoulders and say, "I'm proud of you, self." And there is one more thing I want you to do. In the last day of 2020, I want you take some time to reflect on the lessons 2020 has taught you and what you've learned from it. Here's mine, 20 THINGS I'VE LEARNED IN 2020 1. Focus on the things I can control I'm always excited for the new year because for me, it means a brand new start. And 2020 is not just an another year, it's a mark of a new decade.  Even before 2020 began, I have a 20/20 vision for the first six months of it already. I have set a goals on each mon


Hello bookworms! It's Christmas time! One of the traditions in this season is to put up a Christmas tree. As a book-lover,  I put up our Christmas tree using some of the books I owned which are also made from trees for trees is used to produce papers and papers is used to produce books.  It's also a time to do a recap of all the books I've read this year. I've only read 6 books.  It's very few for someone who claims to be a book-lover but I have my reason.  I feel guilty that I can read a fiction book in one sitting but my Bible reading doesn't even last for 5 minutes. I want to spend more time with the Word of God and if I can't do that, I don't deserve a time to read a fiction book but if I can do that, I reward myself a time to read a fiction book.  So here's the fiction books I've rewarded myself this year:  1. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare I've seen 'Shadowhunter' in Netflix and I have this


Hello bellas! Good news! After months of suffering from flaking and itchy scalp and also months of trying different anti-dandruff shampoo and medicated shampoo, finally, I am dandruff-free!!  Thanks to Naturals by Watsons Aloe Vera and Scalp Tonic! I bought it on the first week of December with a hope that it will rid my dandruff. And it did!  I used it twice daily. Since I have long thick hair, I spray it generously on my damp hair right after bath and on my dry hair before I sleep at night and massage it on my scalp and on my hair. It leaves a mild fragrance on my hair that I really love to smell from time to time and a moisture-balanced scalp that rid dandruff and prevent it from coming back. What I love more about it?  It is certified organic! D ouble the power of aloe vera for extra strengthening:   Organic aloe vera juice  from UK that nourishes the hair and soothes dry and itchy scalps to prevent flaking and  natural aloe vera extract from US that replenishes the hai


Living in the hustle and bustle of the big city for almost three years made me appreciate the life in the province more than ever.  The fresh and cool weather.  The green fields. The mountain scenery.  The river.  The rooster's crow in the morning.    The vegetables in the backyard.  The sounds of cicadas at night.  And the presence of my family.  Ahh... Province life. 💚 In this new chapter of my life comes a new segment in my blog.  Sweet's Journey in the Province.   It is to show you the beauty of my province. The beauty of  Negros Occidental . From the people, language spoken, culture, foods to the places. Month by month I'll publish a blog post about my journey in the province. I'll start off with November, my first month here.  But before I tour you around, let me take you first to the place where I grew up, with side stories here and there.  FAMILY'S HOME Our home is located in the rural area of Bacolod City.
