Weekend Story: Father’s Day Celebration + A Few Other Stuff

Last weekend was memorable and fun. We spent time with family and created lots of happy memories with them. We were truly grateful for everything.

The hubby was back to school again on Saturday for his final stint in grad school. If things will go well, he’ll graduate in October. We’re both crossing our fingers on that.

Weekend Story: Eating and Biking Galore

Last weekend was filled with eating and biking, hence, the title. It started on Friday night when the hubby and I, along with my in-laws, went to Blue Bay Walk on Macapagal Blvd. My PILs suddenly decided to dine out to remember the 6th death anniversary of the hubby’s aunt (we miss you, Mamala!) in advance.

Frugal Find: SM Woman Black Business Dress

While I don’t shop a lot (you might wanna read about my successful 11-month long shopping fast last year), I have this special shopping list in my head containing several “wanted” items.

It’s like destiny, with the item and I being meant for each other.

CoCo Tea PH’s fresh teas and juices

Last night, I attended their Summer On-The-Go event that celebrated the soft launch of their SM City Manila store, their 5th branch in the Philippines. (I heard they first arrived here in 2013.) It was an evening filled with fun and excitement as people shared about their summer plans and eventually pledged for a better lifestyle. Who doesn’t want one, anyway? I, personally, am aiming for a more active and healthier lifestyle this 2015. And what better way to strengthen my commitment to that goal than to try drinking healthy, starting with CoCo’s interesting product line of teas and juices made from the freshest and the highest quality ingredients!
