India 2020: Jaipur 2-Day Travel Guide

After a year, here's the 4th installment of our epic Indian 2020 adventure! From Agra, we travelled for 4-5 hours going to Jaipur. On the way, we stopped and toured inside Fatehpur Sikri, ate lunch and made a quick visit at Chand Baori, a stepwell located in Abhaneri village in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Before our trip, I already messaged Indian Holiday if they could include the stepwell in our tour schedule and they nicely accommodated my request. Originally, wala talaga sha because it's a bit out of the way. In return, I asked them to remove the elephant ride at Amber Fort in our package. Win-win! So tara, join me as I relive our amazing Jaipur trip...


The Truth Regarding How Often you Should Be Exfoliating Your Face

Getting a skincare routine right can be difficult. It’s often a case of trial and error as you search for the products that are effective on your skin type and cost-effective. Part of the issue is knowing how often you should be using specific products to get the best possible look. It can be hard to achieve the same look as your favorite celebrity. After all, they have a team of professionals helping them.

One thing that many people get wrong is exfoliating their faces. You’ll probably think it’s a good idea to exfoliate daily. However, the best approach to exfoliating your face is actually to do it 2-3 times a week. In short, every other day will suffice.

Bye Bye Allergies with SNIZTOP

This year, for some reason, my allergic rhinitis (and Nico's) worsened. I don't know why but we've become more sensitive to dust, smoke or even the weather.  We hate getting the sniffles especially when outside because people could be quick to judge especially when we're in the middle of a pandemic. Also, it's such a hassle. Huhu. Good thing I discovered SNIZTOP! Read on to know more...

Safe & Conscious Travel in the New Normal + Places I Want to Visit

We're only 2 months away from the new year! Can you believe it?! I swear it seems like it was only yesterday when we're ringing in the year 2020 on the street, giving a toast (online and offline) complete with resolutions & aspirations, sharing a laugh over drinks with friends & family, watching fireworks, yet utterly clueless about the devastation it will bring to our lives and the world. A few months in and overnight all of our lives turned upside down. I admit, it took a while for me to finally accept the reality that things will never be the same again. I even shed a few tears whenever I think of all the things I took for granted like crowded places (which I hate so much), dining in a resto, casual strolls, commuting, social interactions, hugs & kisses, gatherings, blog events, work, shopping without having to disinfect everything every time (such a hassle huhu), going to the movies, and I could go on and on but truly one of the things I miss so much is traveling. (insert crying face emoji) We're nowhere near this outbreak's finish line but things are slowly getting back to "regular programming" with new routines and protocols in place. For weeks now, Nico and I have been discussing where we could possibly go that's nice (a beach, lake, mountain, etc) yet safe and budget friendly. In BTS Army's words, we badly need to go "Namjooning" (take time out to relax, think and commune with nature) just to recharge & decompress. Here are a few places we want to visit, as well as some safety tips...

I miss you Siquijor ;)

How I Stay Healthy with Best Organic's Micro Plant Powder Gold

If there's one precious lesson we all learned this year, it's the importance of putting our health first. It's an invaluable asset that most of us (including myself) often take for granted. Before this pandemic, I've been living a fast-paced life. I was always trying to do so many things at once, hopping from one place/commitment to another that I oftentimes forget to eat or go to the restroom. I was also not into fitness so I felt sluggish and tired all the time. Fast forward to ECQ, everything changed. I had more time to rest, think and just listen to what my body says. To relieve myself from stress and anxiety, I started working out. It was also the perfect opportunity to cut our consumption of fast food and junk food and just cook healthy meals at home! Still, there are moments when I wish I could live healthier but then I forget about it-- good thing I found the perfect partner to help me through this journey, MICRO PLANT POWDER GOLD!!!
