Friday Fabulous Five {Week 1}

FFF

This is a compilation of my weekly work week finds. During lunchtime and breaks, I often check blogs, sites or videos to help me recharge or give me that much needed creative boost. The Friday Fabulous Five will contain (but not limited to) the following:

  • a DIY project idea I’m soooo itching to make
  • a recipe that I’d love to try sometime
  • a new style or trend
  • an artwork that I love
  • a photo that hits close to home
  • a video that moved me (Believe me, I often cry in my cubicle after watching a viral video. My teammates are already used to this)

So it’s basically a round-up of all of my favorite things every week. Since I sometimes have a lot of those favorite things, I have committed to limit it to just five for each week. Actually it has a lot do with me posting on a Friday and I just want to have a nice play of words hahaha.

So (drum roll, please) make way for my first Friday Fabulous Five ever!

1. Pretty chairs on Instagram

I have been dreaming of my ideal chairs for our home and in my mind, I always see dainty windsor chairs. These lovely chairs below are IT!! :) I could also do with brighter colors like coral, turquoise, aqua and sunshine yellow.

Say Aum to Wellness with ECHOyoga Shala

ECHOyoga altar table

It is my new mission to focus on my healing (from chronic migraine) and adapt a more holistic lifestyle. A month ago, I’ve been contemplating on taking up a yoga practice and have been asking friends if there is a center that can guide me as I address my migraine and weight issues (I need to lose at least 20 to 30 lbs to regain my strength and balance). And so, the timing couldn’t be more perfect when my friend Janice Lim of Roller Coaster Ride invited me to be one of the participants in last Saturday’s yoga session for bloggers. I am deeply honored and grateful to meet the wonderful people behind ECHOyoga Shala.  [Read more…]

The tale of the Sad Sunken Cupcakes

Let me tell you a story of the Sad Sunken Cupcakes. Once upon a Monday night, after work, I went to the grocery in search of the Maya cupcake mix. I really just wanted to try it for myself. And so I went and bought the cupcake mix and started baking.

It was doing okay, it was already starting to look like these cupcakes below.

But alas! When I started poking the center with a toothpick, it didn’t come out clean. What could have gone wrong? I gave them more time in the oven until they turned out to be sad sunken little things :( [Read more…]

One Sweet Sunday

This Sunday afternoon was my alone time with Lyndel. His Yaya went Christmas shopping while Daddy went to Divisoria to check on something (Heck, he braved the Sunday Christmas shopping crowd! But that’s a different story)

Lyndel and I started our date over lunch. I just woke up from my once-in-a-blue-moon Sunday morning nap. I rustled up a quick lunch from whatever was available in our pantry (our grocery shopping was set in the evening!) I was actually pleased with the results of our super fast pasta dish. I used Century Tuna with Calamansi as the sauce and it turned out great! A light and refreshing lunch indeed! Here’s what I did: Sauteed garlic and onions, added the tuna, a dash of paprika and salt, and a pinch of chili flakes, tossed in the cooked pasta, and viola! Lunchy lunch! [Read more…]
