YOGA | DAY 2 OF TAKING A BREAK TO RECHARGE | LESSONS WE CAN LEARN FROM A BUTTERFLY.

Two days ago we spent the day in Moretti, a small locality in Piedmont region, Italy. I accompanied my husband to visit his uncle. Our stay was short but reminded me the beauty of countryside living.

YOGA | DAY 1 OF TAKING A BREAK TO RECHARGE | SWITCHING OFF.

SHOPPING FOR FURNITURE AND HOME DECORS AT RED HEIRLOOMS IN MALATE, MANILA.

One thing that people omit to tell you is that: when you are planning to get married, there comes a time you may have to fight over which furniture to buy, or where to place it in the house. Even worse is when you and your significant other have contrasting tastes.

After our 10 years together, my husband and I have finally figured out how to peacefully shop for home decor without strangling each other. Although we may not always agree with each other’s perspectives, we have discovered that sharing and listening to each other’s visions helps in choosing the perfect piece of furniture that represents our combined sensibilities. Meditation before going out for shopping also helps.  Read more
