A few weeks ago, I received an invite from Rakso Travel to join them on their trip to Jeju Island, South Korea. Of course, without hesitation, I said yes! Who would ever want to pass up a travel opportunity? I’ve read about Jeju Island on my friend Chester’s blog and that sneak peak got me all the more excited to go. You have no idea how much I wanted a remote control for life, to press fast forward so we’d get to the day of departure itself. Alas, like everyone else, I had to wait — but that wait is over! In approximately four days, I’ll be boarding our Philippine Airlines flight to Jeju! Ahhh, how generous the Universe is being lately. <3
Two weeks ago we covered the 3 important things to know before starting a career in blogging, or just starting a blog in general. Let’s move on to another important key factor: knowing which blogging platform you should be on. It’s important to know because your blogging platform will act as your partner in this whole ordeal, you’ll be working together constantly, and so a good match is of utmost importance.
For this blog post, I’m choosing the top 5 main blogging platforms that people use nowadays (sorry Xanga and Livejournal!): WordPress (.com & .org), Blogspot, Tumblr and Squarespace.
Personally, I’ve had experience using Blogspot, Tumblr and WordPress.org, but I’ve interviewed a couple of blogging friends who currently or have used the platforms I haven’t so you can hear different opinions regarding each one, to of course help you decide better!
It’s no secret that I’ve got wanderlust coursing through my veins. It’s been part of my DNA, and ever since I was a young little girl my greatest dream was to travel the world; aside from being French, obviously. But due to certain circumstances (hello, finances, how are you doing?) traveling hasn’t really been the easiest thing to achieve. But I’m making changes. And while I’m in the process of making changes, I’ve decided to gather my bucketlist of things I want to do in each country I plan to visit one day.
My current goal is making my Great Britain trip happen this coming October. After doing days of research of touristy/non-touristy things to do in Great Britain, I’ve narrowed down all the things I think are do-able, and definitely something I want to experience.
For years we’ve been conditioned to think that the number one enemy of healthy skin is the sun, causing multiple types of damages, including dry skin. Summer is fast approaching, and that means hotter days, less clothing, staying indoors longer, cranking up the temperature of our air conditioners and blasting it all day – but did you know that air conditioners are the biggest culprits to causing dry skin? This is because long exposure to cold air takes away the moisture and natural oils from our skin, making it dry, itchy and in my case, flaky. You might think that the moisture we get from ordinary beauty soap is enough to combat dry skin, but it never is. I would know, because I’ve been dealing with dry skin my entire life.
You can combat skin dryness with Olay’s Moisture Outlast Body Wash Collection; it provides deep moisture with its breakthrough outlast formula that penetrates the skin layer by layer, leaving you with long-lasting moisture for up to 24 hours. No more dry, itchy and flaky skin! The Olay Body Wash Moisture Outlast collection leaves your skin feeling smooth to the touch.
On March 28, Olay invites you to a swap event at Robinsons Place Manila, Midtown Atrium, to trade your non-P&G bar soaps (any brand that isn’t Olay, Camay, & Safeguard) for new Olay Moisture Outlast body wash (200ml) and join me and other women to experience #MoistureThatLasts by Olay!
For more information about the swap event, you can check the Olay Facebook page for details!
I’m excited for you to see the difference yourself, as I have! See you there!

Today’s Font in French is “Elsie” a beautiful feminine serif typeface created to “celebrate the world of women, glamour, and fashion.”
Elsie reminds me of chic French women. Come to think of it, I have no idea why I hardly ever used this font. I think I’m going to start incorporating this more in my blog graphics. It’s so pretty *pets laptop screen*
You can download Elsie FOR FREE! Enjoy!
