Paris will be a city that I’ll probably find myself visiting time and time again, if not live in. Gab, on the other hand, never really understood why I loved Paris so much, or why I dreamed of living there in the future (actually, I dream of living anywhere in France in the future. Paris just made my top choice because it’s the first French city I’ve explored twice) but after the six days we spent there, Gab changed his mind completely. Paris became one of his favorite cities out of all the 9 we visited. It’s safe to say he even liked it better than London, and let me tell you, he was hell bent on visiting London and the 5 days we were going to spend there was completely his part of the trip, it was the first reason why this Eurotrip even happened in the first place.
In the six days, we spent a lot of time exploring the city on foot, eating pastries, visiting our favorite Franprix near the flat to stock up on some junk food. We put no pressure on ourselves to visit each of the famous monuments, just seeing them was good enough. Paris is a huge city, and you definitely can’t do everything you want in a week. Heck, I’ve been twice and I still haven’t gone up the Eiffel Tower and stepped foot into the Louvre. I prefer to explore cities by getting lost in them and Gab had the same idea in mind.
I hope you guys enjoy the photos and my little anecdotes that go with them. Paris is my favorite city in the world, and I realized this when I found myself getting sick of the city after a week but missing it immensely after I’d left it.
A few weeks ago I decided to have a little discussion about monthly periods with my female followers on Twitter. I had just finished my monthly period, and I wanted to know what their biggest fears were when Aunt Flo comes around each month, just to get a little discussion going, and maybe address each fear that came up. I didn’t expect to get so much responses, but I did! Below are a list of the most common period fears I’ve gathered and my advice on how to deal with them!
Did you know that oral care is just as important as taking care of the rest of our bodies? I always thought that I had pretty good teeth and visiting my dentist happened only once a year, when in fact, it should be made regular with a minimum of two visits each year.
Filipinos in general think that the state of the country’s oral health is good, after all, aren’t we known to be the happy and smiling nation? But on a personal level can you say you’re confident in the state of your oral health as an individual? I feel that oral health is often neglected because there just isn’t enough information circulating around for us to be made aware of it. After doing some research, here’s what I found regarding the importance of oral health:
Craponne is probably a place you’ve never heard of before in your entire life, which is okay, because I didn’t know this place existed up until a month and a half ago. It’s a small, peaceful town just a few minutes by car or public transport from Lyon, France’s third largest city, in the Rhône-Alpes region. I’ll be living here for two months (November & December, originally three months but there was a problem with my visa and the French embassy could only grant me the two extra months after my Eurotrip) with the Garcia family, learning all about the French culture, their food, way of life, and hopefully pick up more of their language while teaching them conversational English in return. It’s a pretty awesome deal.
A few weeks ago, I was given the chance to visit UST with my fellow bloggers to meet a few blog readers and at the same time get to enjoy the B’lue event. For those who are not familiar, B’lue is a new refreshing lifestyle drink designed for us. I had so much fun interacting, meeting, talking to readers that I actually forgot to take a lot of photos — oops, my bad! I did get some footages from meeting some readers though, so if you wanna check that out you can view my recent weekly vlog!
If you told me exactly a year ago that I’d be going on a Eurotrip with my boyfriend, I would’ve rolled my eyes and said, “As if… I don’t have the finances for it.” but a lot has changed since then. This whole Eurotrip plan actually began last year when Gab decided to book tickets to the Hamlet play at the Barbican Theater in London for October 2015. He was a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch, Shakespeare, and the city of London; three very good reasons for him to decide on a whim that he’s going. It was supposed to be a solo trip, but over the course of 3 months, we decided to make it a full blown Eurotrip.
The last 2 months of the Eurotrip planning went painstakingly stressful, there was a lot of stress and a lot of crying. My passport got wet, visa interviews got delayed (repeatedly), I experienced my first visa rejection, cue more tears and stress and then the elation of finally receiving my French Schengen visa two days before our flight! You could say the planning was an adventure in itself, and that was just the beginning.
