K-drama Review: Love Alarm Season 2 and CooCoo’s Easy to Cook Chicken Pops

I’ve been caught up in another slump as of late, I feel that being in quarantine, these feelings of inadequacy, insecurity and loneliness comes up to me even more and more. I feel that, in a way I am lagging behind everyone that I see on social and that at this point in my life I am somewhat stuck on what my next step would be for my personal growth.

There are a lot of things that I want to do and plan on doing, like taking up another course either in Digital Marketing or in law, enrolling myself in a formal cooking school, getting more active in my business. However, sometimes everything seems so overwhelming that I can’t seem to segregate which task comes in first.

K-drama Review: Love Alarm while creating Ready to Eat Snacks from Jolly Corn

Since weekends are best spent, cozying up on my couch and just binge-watching on various trending movies on Netflix. For this week, one series that popped up in my recommended items to watch is the Netflix Series called Love Alarm.

Since Netflix has been pushing for more authentic content as of late, this Hallyu drama seems to depict not just the usual sappy love triangle that high schoolers face but also the societal standards on beauty, social media and validating our self-worth from the engagements that we get online.

Ortigas Art Gallery 2021 formally Opens in Estancia Mall

Another week is starting once again! Where did all the time go? I just wish that sometimes there was a pause button between Saturday and Sunday so we can just take a break, read more books and enjoy more quality time with our close friends and family members.

That said, just last week I was invited to check out the Ortigas Art Festival which was held at the lower ground floor (East Wing) of the Estancia Mall in Capitol Commons. Since this was a few blocks away from our residence, I decided to swing by after my shift at work ended.

K-drama Review: Birth of a Beauty & A Healthy Milk Tea Discovery from PMS

The past few days just flew by so quickly and in just a few days we are turning again another leaf in our calendars and will be welcoming the 3rd month of the year which is March. The month, where a lot of our family members will be holding their birthdays.

That said, before I veer off from the topic again, let’s first discuss this K-drama that I have been binge-watching for a past few nights now. Since I cannot spend the whole day watching K-drama’s due to my other pressing priorities, I can only allot a couple of hours to binge watch which is around 3-4 hours daily which is more of less around 3-4 episodes since each episode lasts for an hour or more.

Top Tips on Social to help Small Businesses

I have been on the consuming end lately rather than creating more, binge watching on this Kdrama I found on Netflix called Birth of a Beauty, wherein it exposes the bias that we have to those on the plus size of the spectrum, aside from that the series also gives its take on self-love and on empowering yourself to achieve more and going out of your comfort zone to pursue what you really want doing. Like what they say, find your fire and your passion.

Aside from that, I have been playing more mobile games and reading up on this new book I found on Kindle, so I am trying to counter my lazy mindset for the past few days and get back up and start working and being productive once again.

Top Lessons I Learned from My First Year of Marriage

Well what do you know, it’s another year and another Valentine’s Day again. Even after the tumultuous year that was 2020, comes in a new year filled with hope and gratitude since we are still alive and breathing despite all the curveballs 2020 hurled towards us.

I am excited with what this year holds for us, not only with regards to my personal growth as a person, but also with what opportunities lies ahead of me in my career. So far, aside from maintaining my day job, I have also dabbled into online selling, got more active with blogging wherein I have so far been consistent in publishing at least 1-2 articles per week and have also got other side gigs in the form of being a content/ ghost writer and a resource person in a focus group discussion for a glossy but has now fully transitioned to a digital resource for fashion and style tips.

Curating your dining room furniture, can be quite overwhelming especially for those noobs who don’t have any experience in managing a household just like me.

These are just some of those challenges which might faze you once you enter another phase in your life, which is #adulting or when you decide to have a family of your own.

Ways on How to Achieve Glowing Skin in your 30’s

I have been binge watching Kdrama’s on Netflix as of late, since what else is there to do at home after finishing off your errands and your work right? I’m not really a big fan of working out, blame the laggard in me, so I can’t really resonate with all those workout videos online which seems to work for others.

But hey, to each his own right? So to keep myself in check, I just opt for other healthy alternatives instead, like taking the stairs as much as I can when I have deliveries to pick up in our condo lobby. So back to all these Kdramas that I have been binge watching on, a common theme amongst all their leads is the pore less and impeccable skin that they have. I’m not sure if they were innately born with such good skin but of course to maintain it they also have to do some work right?

Due to other priorities like sanitation, stacking up on the essentials and disinfecting equipment at home. Our skincare routine has been on the backburner for quite some time now, so read on to know how we can still have that glowing façade despite being indoors most days due to the lockdown still being in place.
