I was wearing off shoulder white top, gray jogger pants and fedora hat last December 12, 2015 for Davao Bloggers White Christmas Party at Park Inn Hotel, Davao City.  It was my first Christmas together with my new found squad #LGRP (Jexx, Clau, Clea & Shine).  We took a lot of silly picture at the photo booth area and had fun playing trivia games. Aside from eating mouthwatering food prepared by our generous sponsors, there are also lots of prizes that were raffled and I’m one of the lucky winners to have a free meal for two at RBG Bar and Grill at Park Inn Hotel, Davao. Oh I can’t wait to try their mouthwatering food again! Weeeeee! And guess what? I was also nominated for Best Lifestyle Blog. Nyahahaha! Thanks for nominating me guyz! It motivates me more to blog.

What's inside Belle De Jour Power Planner 2016?


Hi Lovelies, January 2016 already passed and I’m now preparing myself for a new leap this month. To keep me up, my Belle De Jour Power Planner will help me organized my day to day activity. What I like about this planner is that it keeps on reminding me of my goals in life. It teaches me on how to save and spend wisely with the help of spend smart, cash flow and bill tracker section. It also have health checklist, menstrual tracker and beauty essential checklist to keep me stay healthy this year. I’ve tried an APP planner however, it did not survive. The APP crashed and all my details were gone. #SoSad =(  But worry no more.  BDJ Planner fits me well. Although it is a back to basic hand writing journal where you can use all your color pens and doodle at the same time. It also have free cute stickers, membership card and some discount vouchers. Don’t you love that? I’m positively sure you do too. (^,^) What’s your planner?

Happy New Year Lovelies! We say goodbye 2015 and Hello 2016! But before we face our brand new journey let us look back to McHappy Day Stripes Run that was held last November 28, 2015 at People’s Park Davao City hosted by Jackie Lou Blanco and Mikee Aportadera. It was the time, McDonald’s brought its annual family fun run in Davao City where participants ran and rallied support in helping more Filipino kids learn how to read. McHappy Day Stripes Run is a fundraising event of McDonald’s Philippines to fuel support for its flagship program, Ronald McDonald Read to Learn. The program, in partnership with the Department of Education, teachers beginning reading to Grade 1 and 2 public school students. Now aside from wearing McDonald’s iconic stripes socks, there are also lots of fun activities within the area. They have Zumba, Coca Cola Tic-Tac-Toe games, Lego booth for kids, Photo booth and Growee game.  It was a fun day activity for all of us. And with that, I would like to congratulate all Dabawenyos who finished their ran and wont some prizes.
