Mentoring Lunch

Yesterday, I had the time to do some brisk walking at the UP campus.

I was able to burn some calories before my lunch at Sunnies Cafe. I got to do some crocheting before meeting with my friends.

I had a lovely lunch with my uni mentor Mitzie and her niece Maiko. It was nice to catch up with friends after my dad’s recent passing.

No visit to Sunnies Cafe is complete without some selfies in their famous washroom.

I got to buy Sunnies Face’s new Airblush after lunch.

I also got to offer eggs at St. Clare Monastery.

I bought carioca, a local street food consisting of fried sticky rice. It was a delicious afternoon snack.

Before going to bed, I brushed my teeth using this bamboo toothbrush that I bought from social enterprise Rags 2 Riches.

I know that by continuing my passions and meeting my friends from time to time, I can carry on with life after the storm. 

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Simple Hump Day

Yesterday, I started my day with my usual workout at the park.

I had breakfast and coffee afterwards.

Then, I went to the mall for some retail therapy.

I bought lipsticks from Sunnies Face for me and my mom.

I queued up for it.

By the time it was my turn, I already knew shades I would purchase. While waiting for my payment to settle, I appreciated the store’s interiors. I especially liked the pink floor.

Actually, almost the entire store was pink and cream!

I later watched Crazy Rich Asians. I enjoyed it so

much!

I always get giddy whenever I see anything The Little Mermaid. In this case, I saw this children’s book at a secondhand bookstore. I remember having a similar one when I was a kid.

I dropped by Sta. Clara since I was already in the area. I prayed for a better future and I gave thanks for all the blessings I have been receiving so far.

Before I knew it, it was time to claim my Sunnies Specs.

I chose this cool cateye pair called Harlow.

I wrapped up my day with Rodic’s tapsilog...

...and delicious Turkish ice cream!

I enjoyed my hump day and I look forward to more relaxing days that make all the hard work worth it.
