Summer Nature

Yesterday, we had the launch of the newest products at the Human Nature Flagship Store. My favorite is the new green tea lotion. Please help me by buying from my Human Nature Online StoreSupport my small business, and help me thrive!

I had fun during the party, and it was also great to catch up with my friends there. Here’s to more sales and opportunities to share the goodness of social enterprise with others! 

Borealis Crystals

I recently ordered a bespoke ring from local jewelry company Borealis Crystals. It is a PWD-run online jewelry boutique which I have been stalking on Instagram for quite some time now. I have been privileged to earn some money from freelance work, and I set aside some of my pay to have a custom ring made for me. 

IMAGE.JPG

After a month of communicating with C & J, the couple behind this homegrown brand, I finally got the pink ring of my dreams. 

IMAGE.JPG

I love that they added a couple of Flat Tops with my order for a touch of whimsy.  

IMAGE.JPG

My pink tourmaline is professionally-set in rose gold. I requested for a comfort-fit band, and I have been wearing this daily for almost a week now. I can definitely say that it lives up to its comfort-fit name, as it is really comfortable. I was able to write at work and the ring felt light on my fingers. I think it helps that C is into calligraphy, so she knows that a ring must not get in the way when one is writing. 

IMAGE.JPG

I love supporting social enterprises, and businesses that empower PWD’s. I am happy that I can wear something that’s both handmade and bespoke everyday. What’s more, I get to wear a ring with a story that’s more radiant than its innate sparkle.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I highly recommend this brand, and I hope that you can check out their Instagram page for their latest on-hand designs. You may also order bespoke jewelry. Production time is from 1-2 months, depending on the design. May they help you realize the jewelry of your dreams! 

Refilling Hearts

Yesterday, I attended the launch of the refilling station for home care products at the Human Nature flagship store. I was eager to witness this important milestone for our company. 

In case you missed it, I sell Human Nature products through my online store! Please support me while also helping the communities that are assisted with livelihood and skills training by the company. Every purchase counts as you switch to natural personal and home care products!

As always, every Human Nature event is an opportunity to catch up with fellow dealers turned friends, such as Kristel.  

IMG_4350.jpeg
IMG_4355.jpeg

I joined some games to get the party started. We were asked what we will do if we were given Php1M, and we told the crowd that we will train communities to create livelihood opportunities and multiply that impact across the country, similar to what Human Nature is already doing. We can even theoretically collaborate with them!

Of course, the event is not all fun and games. The environment urgently needs our help in conserving finite resources and living sustainably, that’s why I brought my helper Racquel with me. It is important that my staff also knows about this cause, and that she sees firsthand how this advocacy is translated into a practical solution, such as our new refilling station. It also matters to me that she witnesses what I do for a living (while I also work freelance and search for corporate employment). It is my hope that she lives more sustainably as well after hearing the speeches on that day. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I saw more friends in the Core Advocate group, which is comprised of long-time dealers who have taken time to take the advocacy through the next level. Maque and Lei have been with me during a community breakfast with the flagship store’s neighbors last year, and we have also joined a community immersion at the GK Enchanted Farm last February.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

We had our fill of coffee and pastries as we witnessed this milestone. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Megs and Ate Rhea have become my friends through the years. They are sone of the reasons why Human Nature continues to grow. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Ate Yla has been managing the flagship store and has turned it into a powerhouse of social enterprise. She has also become a dear friend. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Here we are with our president Anna Meloto-Wilk, who empowered us all with a heartfelt speech on saving Mother Nature in our own little way and still selling quality natural products. Her own journey into sustainability in her own home (as a wife and mum of six kids) and in her job was not easy, but it  eventually became a conscious choice.

I am so proud of Human Nature, and I am honored to be one its core advocates who share the goodness with each sale.

I hope that you, dear reader, will continue to support me and my Human Nature online store! Our company continues to change lives and lead by example in the industry.

Here’s to more years of sustainability and success!

Human Nature Summer

Last Saturday, I attended the New Products Launch at the Human Nature Store The Block.  

Please support my Human Nature Online Store! Every purchase supports me and my family. Thank you!

FullSizeRender.jpg

This is the brand’s first branch in a major mall and I’m all for it! 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I am excited for the Sunflower Body Scrub because I’m a devotee of their sunflower beauty oil. Naturally, their scrub will be just as nourishing!

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Summer is definitely here and I’m happy that I have natural products to keep me fresh and clean without polluting the environment.

Ring for the Babies

At a time when life’s challenges can get overwhelming, I was able to find a way to share my blessings while indulging in my love for jewelry. I recently purchased a silver ring from local brand Vera Juan, who’s currently on hiatus. Before she went on a break, she sold some jewelry for the benefit of the Leycano twins. They were born prematurely, and their parents need help in paying their medical bills. You may help them via this GoGetFunding page. 

IMG_3248.jpeg

My ring is sparkly and dainty! Perfect for my small hand, this ring will inspire me to shine bright even during dark times. Thanks to the twin girls Pia and Paz, I am inspired to find ways to help others while empowering myself.  

Here’s to more sharing and helping in the coming weeks and months! 

Core Advocacy

Yesterday, I joined a workshop on growing my income at the Human Nature Flagship Store.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I joined my fellow Core Advocates in learning and sharing on a Saturday afternoon. Our colleague, Lei, was the enthusiastic resource speaker.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

The lecture was practical, and well-received! I will definitely use the SMART goals in planning and organizing. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Building my empire sounds daunting, but it really is achievable. I have to consistently practice effort and creativity in order to earn more and be more!

Here’s to more learning this 2019! 

Big Bad Wolf 2019

Yesterday, I ate brekkie at our neighborhood canteen. I had tortang talong (eggplant omelette) and rice. It was so good! 

IMG_3088.JPG

Then, I had lunch at the 24-hour pop-up food court at Big Bad Wolf 2019!

IMAGE.JPG

I got my usual at Potdog: crab egg with rice. Yum!

IMG_3090.JPG

It was cool to see social enterprise goods by Gawad Kalinga at the food court. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I was excited for this year’s Big Bad Wolf as I was able to hunt some fabulous finds last year

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

The overwhelming amount of books did not faze me as I clearly knew what I wanted. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Still, I browsed through the stacks of books and enjoyed the hours I spent at the fair.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I stuck to my shopping list and bought three adult coloring books. I have already migrated to using ebooks, but the joy of coloring cannot be replicated by an app. I needed the real deal. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Before leaving the fair, I dropped by the Red Readerhood booth. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I donated two books for Gawad Kalinga kids. Of course, I had to select dog-themed books. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I offered eggs and prayers at St. Clare to ask for miracles for my family.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I wrapped up my day with some coffee jelly and coloring therapy at the café near home.  

Books, food, knitting, and coloring spark joy for me! I will be back for next year’s Big Bad Wolf for sure! 

Joy in the Bag

I recently purchased this yarn bag from local brand Gantsilyo Guru. It is a collab with another local brand, Beyond Stitched, which is known for sturdy canvas bags and personalized purses. This is not a sponsored post- I just love supporting local craft brands and what better way to do it than to buy something that I can tote around while knitting on the go!

FullSizeRender.jpg

I got the medium yarn bag in midnight.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

It snugly fits a cake of Lion Brand Mandala Yarn purchased from The Attic Yarn and Craftery

FullSizeRender.jpg

While my knitting needles don’t exactly fit inside the bag, they sort of protrude outside the sling and this makes it easier for me to whip out my project for easy knitting in transit. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I roadtested it at my neighborhood cafe. I must say that using it while having coffee makes knitting a breeze. I just sling the bag on my wrist and stitch my day away. (Yes, I had lunch and dinner at the same cafe).  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I would recommend this yarn bag because it is important that we support Philipppine-made craft tools! Also, it is convenient to use. The minimalist design matches well with any outfit. Overall, it’s a great product and I would certainly use it a lot.  

Climate Change: Justice For All?

Yesterday, I started my day with some taho before boarding the MRT.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I reached the ADB in less than thirty minutes! I must say that the MRT is improving. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I represented my blog at a roundable discussion entitled Climate Change: Justice for All?

FullSizeRender.jpg

It was a huge honor to be invited once again by the ADB. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I learned that agribusiness, renewable energy, and ecotourism are some gender-sensitive examples of climate change adaptation  

It is also important to note post-disaster and pre-disaster operations in order to know the areas for improvement in vulnerable areas.

It is also essential to instill empowerment among ALL individuals to reduce vulnerability and to better manage disaster risk. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I was delighted to have the famous ADB crinkles again for snack. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I got to do some work at the library. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I wore my Hiblahi handmade earrings which I purchased from my GK Enchanted Farm trip last Saturday. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I knitted while listening to some podcasts.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

And I had burger steak from Trattoria Gourmet’s at the ADB Cafeteria, which is managed by the same staff at its original Shangri-la Mall restaurant back in the nineties.  

IMAGE.JPG
FullSizeRender.jpg

I dropped by St. Clare Monastery after finishing my work as I was thankful to be given the chance to spend a day at ADB and join in the round table on climate change. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

It is still my dream to work at ADB! I am claiming it, and certainly praying for it.  

Yarn and Healing

Yesterday, I had to sort out some personal challenges. After I got those out of the way, j rewarded myself with lunch at Embrace Cafe.

The cafe employs marginalized and disabled staff. I admired the staff’s positivity and excellent service, despite their circumstances. It is clear that they feel empowered at work.  

I had a delicious plate of carbonara and a cold glass of coffee jelly.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I knitted and at the cafe for hours, so I ended up eating spaghetti for dinner there. 

IMAGE.JPG

Sometimes, I just need to be exposed to people who feel empowered with opportunities to know that I am also capable of improving my life. I know that I am doing my part, and with consistency, I will be one resilient woman.  

Powered Up

I had my car battery replaced yesterday. It gave me peace of mind to know that my car won’t break down anytime soon. I am still grateful to be able to drive home last Saturday. Now that my car has a fresh battery, my faith in God has been reinforced because I was able to reach my residence despite having a dead battery. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

To celebrate, I had merienda at Embrace Cafe, which is near my house. I walked to the cafe for some good vibes. 

IMG_2920.JPG

I was not disappointed! I got myself a yummy cup of chilled taho.  

IMAGE.JPG

And I grabbed their coffee jelly to-go. It was delicious and great value for money.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

The finest restorations of faith don’t have to be entirely grand. It could be a drive back home, or a cold cup of coffee jelly. To still be able to thrive without work and with limited resources is a miracle in itself. With a stable job soon, I know that life can just keep getting better. 

Hope and Hunger

Okay, I’m serving you some real talk today. I had difficulty starting my car right before my GK Enchanted Farm tour last Saturday. I was left my car at a safe parking spot and joined my friends at the van we rented. I was able to drive to dinner at Breakfast Bin, and back home afterwards. Starting the car was a struggle, but I made it home. 

Fast forward to yesterday morning, and I couldn’t start my car at home. My battery is dead.  

I realized that how fortunate was that I was able to go home and not have car problems on the road- or in the middle of Maginhawa Street, post-dinner. God still looks after me after all.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

After hearing mass with my family yesterday, I ate this glorious chicken ala Kiev from Conti’s. Then, I proceeded to my derma appointment. I took Grab coming home. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I wore my new handmade earrings from GK Enchanted Farm social enterprise Hiblahi. As always, this is not a sponsored post. I simply like supporting social enterprises and wearing local pieces with pride. 

I am lucky that I was able to go home safely. Here’s to a restored faith that enables me to hope for better things and a hunger for opportunities! 

Farm Saturday

Yesterday, I visited the GK Enchanted Farm with fellow Human Nature Core Advocates for a tour and immersion. This was my sixth visit to the farm. My previous tours were as a social business camper and with friends. Now, I am back as a core advocate with my own Human Nature Online Shop.  

But first I needed to fuel up at McDonald’s.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

We met up at the Human Nature Flagship Store.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

We were also given some nibbles by a fellow core advocate.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

Then, it was time for our journey!

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

We reached the farm at around 9:30am, and we started the tour.

I had a wonderful day of touring the farm, it’s various social enterprises, and of course, enjoying the delicious bounty of the earth!  

It was time for our ride back to the city.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

And before going home, I enjoyed an early dinner of toasted naked longganisa at Breakfast Bin. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I needed the farm tour to realign myself with my values and to appreciate life more. I am proud to see the farm grow, and to be in the company of kindhearted friends.

Here’s to more goodness and opportunities!

Valentine’s Clutch

I’m single and happy on Valentine’s Day. While I’m looking for a partner, I’m also happy with myself. I think that’s the perfect foundation for a relationship, because I’m already fulfilled on my own. 

Having said that, I finished crocheting this clutch using cotton yarn from my favorite local notions store, The Attic Yarn and Craftery.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

To celebrate, I got myself some ensaimada and iced coffee from my neighborhood cafe.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I also got a pixie trim and I feel fabulous! 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Self-love is the best foundation for a relationship. I am fortunate to have found fulfillment with my own talents, such as crochet! I know that whoever will date me in the future will be a lucky man because I’m already comfortable in my own skin. 

Social Saturday

Yesterday, I bought my personal toiletries from the Human Nature Flagship Store. I also bought some orders for my customers. For all your natural personal care needs, just buy from my Human Nature Online Store! Thank you!  

IMAGE.JPG

I also claimed my Dealer ID from the girls at the store.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I finally got my own Human Nature matte lipstick too! This is much talked about as the packaging is mostly paper. Here I am in the shade Warmth.  

IMAGE.JPG

I indulged in some pasta for lunch at the Vertis North weekend market. 

IMAGE.JPG
IMAGE.JPG

Then, I met up with my best friend Luti for some froyo at Elait,  

IMAGE.JPG

I ordered their strawberry mango cheesecake froyo and it was heavenly as always! 

FullSizeRender.jpg

We also had Fried Chicken Master. 

IMAGE.JPG
FullSizeRender.jpg

And for dinner, I had Kimchi Project’s kimchi rice.  

IMAGE.JPG

Life is always better with natural products, good food, and great company! 

Dogs and Food

The other day, I was determined to have a great day before my dad entered the hospital again (he is terminally-ill).  

I started my Thursday with a burger from this kiosk at the mall. It was delicious!  

FullSizeRender.jpg

Then, I got this postcard from Papemelroti. I sent it via snail mail to a customer at my online shop (please buy Human Nature products from me!

FullSizeRender.jpg

I spent my afternoon cuddling my favorite doggos at Barkin’ Blends Dog Cafe. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Ella (the dog that captured my heart years ago) is an expert at cheering me up! 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Apparently, Ella and my new buddy Stitch are friends.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

FullSizeRender.jpg

Ella’s son Chocnut also offered his warm furry body for me to cuddle.  

IMAGE.JPG
FullSizeRender.jpg

It was also my first time to hug Raven the corgi.  

IMG_1630.JPG
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Yes, it was difficult to leave.  

IMG_1645.JPG

I bought socks to remind me of my doggo friends wherever I go.  

IMAGE.JPG

Then, I got a honey soy refresher from Soy Yummy! It was really yummy! 

IMAGE.JPG

And for snack, I for Nacho King. I was brought back to my grade school days. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

And for late dinner, I drove to Army Navy (thank God it’s 24 hours!) for some adobo flakes. So good!  

IMAGE.JPG
IMAGE.JPG
IMAGE.JPG

It’s up to us to find ways to keep going amidst trials. We just have to find the perfect formula that works. For me, it’s doggo + food. I hope you’ll also find yours! 

Strengthening Myself

Yesterday, I drove to the Human Nature Flagship Store along Commonwealth Avenue to attend the launch of their new lipsticks! 

IMAGE.JPG

I was so excited to try these lipsticks. Matte lipsticks are my go-to makeup, and now I can finally buy this staple from my favorite natural store.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

The formula is matte, yet it glides on smoothly without tugging.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

And since my favorite shade is strength, I was chosen to represent it during the launch.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
IMAGE.JPG

I had so much fun! And I am sure that you will definitely like these lipsticks too. Buy from me today via my Human Nature Online Store

FullSizeRender.jpg

It was also a privilege to meet Sami, the daughter of my friend Ate Yla (she’s the manager of  the Human Nature Flagship Store). She’s a college freshman with a small business of her own. I supported her accessories store by purchasing some semi-precious stone bracelets for my parents. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I also bought two bracelets for myself. They’re absolutely stunning! Plus, Sami donates part of the proceeds to charity. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I later had a waxing session nearby.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
IMAGE.JPG

And finally, I got to have lunch again at Breakfast Bin. I missed their toasted naked longganisa with brown aligue rice. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I had a day of natural pampering, wherein I was even reminded of my strength. I am strong because I can still show up and be there at events despite all the challenges that I am facing. I can still smile and wear lipstick. And I am still capable of supporting businesses with a heart.  

I hope that you will help me support myself and reach my dreams! Buy from my Human Nature online store today

Working It

Yesterday, I had an early start as I had a meeting to attend. I had a fast food breakfast and some coffee to-go. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I realized that I was at the namesake building of my venue a few minutes before my appointment. Good thing I walk fast.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I was able to make it at a reasonable time. My meeting was a success! 

I thanked God by visiting Padre Pio at St. Francis Church.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

Later during the day, I got to walk at UP... 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

...and indulge in some dirty ice cream! 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I also bought a bamboo toothbrush from Rags to Riches. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Finally, it was time for late lunch with my best friend Luti.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

I used my gift certificate from Sunnies Santa . I won a pair of Sunnies Specs from them last Christmas. It was certainly the highlight of my holidays! As a bonus, my gift bag also included a gift certificate at my favorite restaurant. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I got to knit while waiting for my friend. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

I also had a flat white to perk myself up. 

IMAGE.JPG

And I ordered a guacamole and salmon dip with taro chips to start. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Luti and I had rice bowls for our mains. We had a fabulous meal! Thank you Sunnies Cafe! 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I am working on improving myself and celebrating small wins to motivate myself to keep going! Here’s to a productive year ahead. 

Doing Good with Doggos

Yesterday, I had the Sgt. Steak salad again at Go! Salads. I am addicted to their chimichurri dressing. I simply can’t get enough of it.  

FullSizeRender.jpg

After my hearty meal, I proceeded to Human Nature to purchase my personal necessities and get orders for my customers. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

You too can support me and my family by making a purchase at my Human Nature online store! To all those who have already purchased, thank you for your support! Please continue patronizing my small business, and I hope that you will spread the word about my shop. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

To cheer myself up after spending time with at the hospital with my terminally-I’ll father, I visited Barkin’ Blends Dog Cafe to hug my furry friends. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I’m wearing a fabric mask because I can’t afford to catch airborne sicknesses! My dad has very weak immunity, so I need to be in tip-top shape.  

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

FullSizeRender.jpg

I went back to Go! Salads to try another selection from their menu. This time, I had the Bayani Salad, which is known for its adobo flakes. I liked it, but I think I’m more of a Sgt. Steak girl. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

Before going to bed, I depotted my Sunnies Face Fluffmatte lipstick in Hot Sauce. While the lipstick brand is known to break easily, it’s color payoff and opacity are out of this world. I had to salvage what’s left of my tube by transferring it in a 3ml jar, microwaving it for two minutes to set it in the container, and letting it cool on room temperature. 

FullSizeRender.jpg
FullSizeRender.jpg

I have chosen local products and produce today. Human Nature is a social enterprise, so each purchase benefits a poor community that the company supports. Go! Salads supports farmers and ensures that their produce is pesticide-free. Barkin’ Blends welcomes people of all ages, genders, and statuses in life. And Sunnies Face is part of the Sunnies Group, which is known to have charitable donations, such as their Christmas giveaway Dear Sunnies Santa

By taking care of myself and supporting brands that do good, I know that I am doing the right thing with my limited resources. I hope that you will also find some brands that support others, and that you will continue paying for goodness to continue growing.  

Sunday Hugs

Yesterday was a fun one. I started the day with Sunday mass with my family. 

IMG_4684.JPG

I crocheted while having lunch afterwards. 

IMG_4685.JPG

I saw We Bare Bears mascots. 

IMG_4686.JPG

And I got to cuddle my fave dogs again at Barkin’ Blends Dog Cafe. 

IMG_4689.JPG

I ended my day with some frozen yogurt from Elait. 

FullSizeRender.jpg

As we prepare for Christmas, let us never lose sight of what matters most, such as family, friends, and fiber arts!
