PEACOCK FEATHERS FOR COSTUMES AND COUTURE

PEACOCK FEATHERS FOR COSTUMES AND COUTURE

Thinking of new ways to add flair to one's wardrobe is a huge challenge, even for the most seasoned style mavens. It is tempting to want to shop for new clothes frequently, since replacing the foundations of one's personal style is the most obvious way to spice things up. However, it can be even more effective to use small accents to completely reinvent one's approach to getting dressed. 

A wardrobe full of basics in neutral and dark colors does not have to be boring. In fact, these versatile pieces define the way that many renowned style stars dress. The tasteful addition of one or two accessories shifts the focal point to them, even if they are small or not particularly eye-catching on their own. It is the manner in which they are deployed that is the mark of a keen eye for fashion. Items like sunglasses seem cliched only because they look great on everyone, making them good go-to pieces for people who want to make an impact with their clothing. Having a few different pairs in a variety of shapes and colors gives one the freedom to add new elements to an outfit without stepping too far out of her comfort zone. The sensibility conveyed by over-sized round sunglasses is vastly different than the statement made by aviator shades, so someone who likes how she looks in sunglasses should consider trying different styles. Doing something as effortless as wearing sunglasses all the time becomes a signature part of someone's style. 

PHILOMENA: A DEEP, SCARRED AND HAUNTING STORY OF HUMAN EXPERIENCE

PHILOMENA: A DEEP, SCARRED AND HAUNTING STORY OF HUMAN EXPERIENCE

I don’t do technical reviews of films. I’ll say I’m more of a reflective viewer if there’s such a term. I consume this genre of art on a more personal and introspective level. Kind of seeing whether they’re relevant to life circumstance or not. And this film, Philomena got me several notches up. It is one of those films that recount discourses that cuts across cultural, social, political and religious attribute of our human existence. 

I wasn't able to read the book. Not a copy available in any local bookstores around here. I was one sad bookie (I’m no worm, seriously, I hate that term) but glad there’s this screen version and I’m hoping this adaptation did justice to the written one.

MEDITATION AND REIKI CLASSES IN CANBERRA

The most common problem that plagues the average person today is that their mind is cluttered with information coming from all directions. We all know that with the increasing use of technology for work and entertainment, it is easy to leap from task to task with no real break to silence our minds and connect back to ourselves. We are constantly preoccupied with answering the phone, texts, emails, and a hundred other things that fill up our schedule, and we rarely take a breather during the day to fully appreciate life. 

There is a way to get more out of your life by taking the time to still your mind through meditation in Canberra

Imagine having the peacefulness of mind to focus on a task at hand. For instance, say you want to have a conversation with a close friend, but 30 seconds into the conversation your mind gets distracted and you start thinking about your never-ending "to do" list. Wouldn't it be nice to just relax your mind and be able to be in the moment with your friend? This type of scenario happens to all of us with our spouses, children, and even when we are alone and trying to relax. Being able to relax your mind can happen if you learn meditation and Reiki.

TREKKING T’DAAN KINI FALLS IN LAKE SEBU

TREKKING T’DAAN KINI FALLS IN LAKE SEBU

My last waterfalls trek was Tenubak Falls in Lebak, Sultan Kudarat back in 2010. (you can look at this video). It has a difficult and steep trail that I called the lesser than less travelled road to forever. But the truth was, there was no really trail at all, you actually have to make one to get through the riverbank where the water drops. And for the nth time, I was certain, adrenalin did wonder at that time. I survived but in between heaves and pants I vowed not to go back nor do this kind of trekking again, I swear! 

Pero di yata nadala, thought it's one of the wonders of human spirit, and here I am taking another road to chasing waterfalls again. But seeing the cleared pilot road to T’daan Kini, I figured this trek is nothing but a brisk walk up ahead. I’m relieved.
