Three Things I Stopped Paying For

Have I told you I have weird life choices? Here is a short list of things I stopped spending money on with the goal to lessen my environmental impact.
Bottled water


In the Philippines, we have two types of bottled drinking water---the regular bottled water you can buy from the grocery and convenience stores, and the 5 gallon refillable ones.

Most people would probably be okay giving up buying bottled water, but for me, I want to go the extra mile and will give up both.

If you are active on social media, you’ve probably seen a few videos or photographs depicting the various negative impact single use PET plastic bottles does to the environment (like this one or this one), but why include the refillable gallons?

What I do is everyday I c…

I missed it.

I wasn't able to attend her birthday.

What I didn't realize is that I was going t…

Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you guys but romance has got nothing to do with my transformation. It’s all thanks to Dulcet Skin by Tanya. If you are looking for trustworthy and effective skin care products, read on.


The Beginning…

When Tanya messaged me on Facebook last July 19th offering me to try her products, I was skeptical because I’ve never heard of the brand before. I thought she was selling some shady cosmetics made from China.

After having been diagnosed with cancer, I started to be really cautious with products I use as 60% of what we put on our face and skin gets absorbed by our body and gets on our bloodstream so as much as possible I opt for all-natural and…
