#RETURNTOREAL: 3 CHEESE MAC AND CHEESE WITH SUNDRIED TOMATOES RECIPE

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

I LOVE CHEESE. WITH A PASSION. Seriously. When I’m at a restaurant, when something has cheese on it, you can guarantee that I’m gonna order it. It’s the best PMS and comfort food. That’s why cheese dishes are a constant in our household especially on “special days” like Sundays and holidays. Basically, anytime the family gets together for a nice meal.

KRACIE HADABISEI ALL IN 1 FACE MASK REVIEW (THE NEW ONE!)

Monday, September 18, 2017

You remember those posts that used to go viral a lot about being "busy" and how not to use "being busy" as a badge of honor? That irritates me sooo much. Obviously, the one who came up with those memes certainly wasn't juggling roles as a mom, homemaker, entrepreneur, blogger, someone trying to stay healthy etc.

YES I AM BUSY. And I'm not apologising for it. The little down time I have I cherish for quiet moments and writing posts like this which I believe is worth sharing :)

Sorry, it really takes a lot of time to shoot nice photos, upload (esp when your internet is real shitty and takes half a day to upload a batch of photos 🙄 hello PLDT, that's you. )

But I do miss sharing things I like so from now on, I'll just post whatever with very little filter and editing just cause I miss sharing these tips with you.

So if you find me rambling. Sorreee :) Just keep in mind that I'm very honest. 😝
For now here's a long overdue post!

WHY YOUR KID NEEDS DHA (MUST READ)

Thursday, September 7, 2017

Health is wealth. There is no statement that holds more truth than that. I found out the hard way when I spent most of last year sick. It doesn't matter what you have or how much you have, if you aren't healthy, you won't be able to enjoy it.

That realization made me rethink my diet and daily eating habits even more. I began to pay more attention to the things I put in my body. Something that kept popping up in my research was DHA.

DHA is Omega 3.

It's why we grew up hearing how fish is good for you and why our parents would force us to have fish oil etc etc.

SO HOW DOES DHA help our bodies?

HOW TO HAVE A NICE DAY: 5 EASY STEPS

Thursday, August 17, 2017

I had the nicest day ever. In the city. Whaaaaaaaat.

With all the negativity going on lately (hello, ltfrb, animal abusers and north korea. thanks for my new wrinkles. 🙄), it's hard not to feel frustrated and disheartened with life in general.

I've found the best way to deal with this is to focus on ways to make yourself feel good instead. Look in not out. Because when you feel good it resonates with the people around you which in turn makes them feel good and so on and so on.

So join me on this quick journey to good vibes. Click more to unlock the secrets.

#CUSTOMMEJORE: ATTAINABLE LUXURY FOR YOUR HOME

Friday, August 4, 2017

I have always been a frustrated interior designer. Way back in college, I would paint my room each year and change up it's theme. I almost went to PSID but laziness got in the way cause I found it too far away from where I live...which is also by the way one of my biggest "what ifs". 

Landing the cover of Real Living is still by far my most favorite media feature of all. I love styling homes more than dressing up. Oh yes x100! 

Which is kinda sad because I guess few people know this so I hardly get invited to home/interior events but when I do, I really make it a point to attend.

The most recent one I was invited to was perhaps also on of my most favorites ever. It was for the launch of #CustomMejore.

QUICK, EASY, JUICY, 7 INGREDIENT ROAST CHICKEN RECIPE WITH OUR #PAMBANSANGMANOK

Thursday, July 27, 2017

A few days ago while scrolling down my Facebook feed, I came across a status that caught my attention. I can't exactly recall word for word but the basic gist of it went something like this... 

"Gourmet, Grass-fed, Braised, etc. At the end of the day, it just boils down to having something in your belly." 

I cannot disagree with this enough. It is soooo wrong on sooo many levels. Especially nowadays.

And I honestly think that's just laziness speaking. Seriously, it isn't that hard nor expensive to eat healthy and stop filling your body with poison. All it takes is a bit of research and minimal kitchen skills.

I'm sorry if I might come off as too adamantly serious about it, it's just with people left and right getting sick lately, it's something I take very seriously, especially with my family. I really believe in the saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" and what better way to do it than with good, healthy food.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SPENT QUALITY TIME WITH YOUR FATHER?

Sunday, June 18, 2017

Nandito ako, kasama mo


Fathers may not often be associated as nurturing and warm individuals but they continue to be the light and pillar of the family through his hard work, determination to succeed, and selflessness.

When dads get promoted, who do you think benefits from it the most? His family of course. With every success and triumph, it is his family whom he wants to share these big moments with, it is them that continues to fuel him to do well no matter how tired he gets.

While it can’t be helped that sometimes he won’t be around much at home if work gets too busy, there’s always a way to create family time.

This Father’s Day, why not bring the celebration to dad instead of waiting for him?

HOW I GOT RID OF MY CYST AT HOME

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

A couple of months ago, I noticed a lump "down there". 

It was a particularly stressful month and my period was delayed for a few weeks so I thought I'd wait it out before panicking. Maybe it was related to my menstrual cycle since there were a couple of times when a pimple showed up a week or two before my cycle only to disappear on its own afterwards.

This wasn't a pimple though. It was larger and it didn't go away even after my super strong and very much delayed period came and went.

That's when I decided it was time to go visit a doctor.

TIDY HEIDY INSTANT STAIN REMOVER REVIEW

Thursday, June 8, 2017

I received an email a few weeks ago from some students who were doing their thesis.

They were asking me if I could help spread the word about their product: a pocket friendly, non toxic and locally made instant stain remover ala Tide 2 go.

I am always getting spaghetti stains on my clothes so why not? Plus I LOVE getting emails from enterprising young kids +++ points since it's also locally made.

Here's my unbiased review for your reference.

I love Browhaus, I follow them everywhere they go. As of this writing, I am still frustrated that they have not yet opened a branch in Greenhills or Shangrila. I am patiently hoping, waiting and jealous of the fact that people up north now have one so conveniently tucked away along the driveway of Trinoma.

Not only that...

HONEST REVIEW: BLUEWATER DAY SPA HILOT

Friday, June 2, 2017

I was invited for a day of pampering to celebrate Mother's Day a couple weeks ago at BlueWater Day Spa.

We were allowed to choose between 3 services: a cellulite melter massage, a variety of body scrubs or a traditional Filipino hilot.

I have been trying to find a good "hilot" to hire for the longest time so I decided to give theirs a try.

Here's what I think.

#BELOBABY TALC-FREE POWDER REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Probably the most common parenting philosophy in the 70's and 80's was

BUT DID YOU DIE?

Mom, I stuck my head in a can of cornstarch and can't get it out! Okay, but did you die?

Dad, I scraped my entire elbow on the street pavement! Okay, but did you die?

Mom! Dad! I ate my entire bottle of Flintstones Vitamins! Okay, but did you die?

Okay, we didn't die.
We're all obviously here and find it hilariously funny now growing up as kids in the 70's and 80's + all the ironies that came along with it.

I'm not about to go full on granola with you guys, I'm just saying that it's so much easier to be a "better parent" now with all the good stuff that's easily available to us now. Not to mention the new health studies, parenting groups and organic forums that are so accessible with just a couple of clicks on our keyboards.

HOW MAKING GIGIL MY TEETH ENDED ME UP AT THE DENTIST

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

I am terrified of dentists. Seriously. You cannot imagine how far I’ll go to avoid a visit. But a couple of months ago, I was hit with a debilitating toothache. No amount of pain killers could alleviate the pain in my jaw. I was in agony. And that’s when my husband dragged me to our dentist.

To my horror, I had an old cavity that was acting up! I couldn’t believe it. I brush hard! I brush a lot. Why? How?!?

OOTD: FLOUNCE AND RUFFLES FOR PETITES

Thursday, May 11, 2017

I was bored and uninspired with fashion for the longest time.

You know with the whole normcore, "basic bitch" thing....

Nothing wrong with that, I am super guilty of filling my closet with multiples of basics that fit well and I still love them to this day.

It's just that when you're into style blogging, basics get boring cause there's only so much you can do with them. (At least for me.)

I still have a penchant for the stark, minimal look but I am super happy with fashion's current direction. More! is More! is so refreshing! I'm loving all the ruffles and lace and patterns and textures upon textures upon prints.

But a petite like me may drown in all that so here's how to easily pull it off...

#LOVEYOURSUMMERSTYLE: 10 YEARS OF SUMMER STYLE EVOLUTION WITH THE SM STORE

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

I’ve been blogging for close to a decade now (pls don’t do the math haha).

Yup, if your patient enough, you’ll find a ton of blackmail photos hidden in there somewhere.

But the upside of me documenting everything is being able to look back and see just how much my style has evolved. I never realized how much fun it would be to compile a decade’s worth of summer ootd’s until I actually did it!

Read on to see how I’ve transitioned from 2007’s extreme boho with low-rise denim and lace to 2017’s more refined interpretation + everything in between.

SPRING SHOES THAT YOU MUST ABSOLUTELY OWN

Thursday, April 27, 2017

It is common knowledge that UK weather is extremely unpredictable. But even so, spring season is one of the four seasons that everyone looks forward to as this season marks the transition from winters to summers. Not only is it warm and dry, but it also has temperatures which are perfect for exploring this beautiful country.  The amount of sunshine received by the country increases in spring season which is attractive as people can complete more work during daytime thanks to British Summer Time. In the midst of all this, how can this fashion haven not have changing trends for this beautiful season?  When we speak of fashion, people generally think of clothes but one important accessory that gets neglected is shoes. Your shoes can change your entire look and make even the most simplest of outfits look stylish if teamed with the perfect shoes. While winter wear included wellingtons and snow boots, let’s see the must haves for spring:

7 REASONS TO STAY ABREAST OF THE LATEST FASHION TRENDS

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Fashion is not just a superficial style statement, but if done right fashion is a powerful tool for personality development and self-expression. However, in the midst of our busy routines, sometimes it is difficult to stay updated with latest fashion trends. In order to find out why even in your busy routines you should be updated about fashion trends, please take a look below at 7 reasons why you should stay abreast of the latest fashion trends: 

OOTD: THE DAILY GOOD + THE DAILY GO-TO

Monday, April 24, 2017

I've been living in active wear practically all summer just because it's too hot out and I seriously can't be bothered. Running shorts have been my saving grace.

But there are days when I want to look decent or have to look decent. Say for a school thing or a meeting or an event.

I wouldn't survive this season without this essential piece.

I got it for less than 1k with a 10% donation to my favorite charity included.

HEALTHY US POTATO SALAD RECIPE - VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY!

Saturday, April 22, 2017

Potatoes have been getting a bad rap and it's not fair. 

Contrary to popular belief, they aren't unhealthy at all. In fact, potatoes are packed with essential nutrients that are vital for athletes in training and those who live an active lifestyle.

When I used to wakeboard regularly, we would always cap off our sessions with a banana shake - for potassium which is known to aid in muscle hydration and recovery.

We were always told to stay away from potatoes because they're fattening, etc. I don't know where the hate is coming from. Seriously guys. Why give a vegetable such a hard time?

It's not the potato that's the problem, it's how you cook it.

In fact, I have just found out that potatoes contain more than 2x potassium than bananas. Yes. A banana only has about 422mg while a single potato is loaded with more than 1000mg! AND, they're not fattening at all. 1 serving ONLY contains 110 calories.


Aside from that, it also has the highest score per peso on these 8 essential nutrients: fiber, vitamin C and E, calcium, iron, magnesium and yes, potassium.

SO STOP DEPRIVING YOURSELF OF SUCH A GOOD VEGETABLE!

After going on and on and on about lighting in this post, I suddenly feel ashamed to share pics that look like these. hehe

I mentioned in a previous post that I'd venture back out to our fire escape and/or sun room but easier said than done. Turns out, our neighbors help has discovered that area as well and have been hogging it lately for ootd's. Serious. Kid you not. Need to figure out their IG handle :P

So anyway, back to the bedroom for now. 2 outfits in a week. What an accomplishment (for me.)

That's where the new Lumee Duo Case comes in.

Because I feel slightly embarrassed all of a sudden to pose in public. Also, no willing photographer. Haha, especially now that I hardly attend events anymore which makes it even more difficult to document my outfits.

I also prefer being BEHIND the camera.

After 8/9 years of doing this, I'm still uncomfortable posing in front of a camera. Hahaha. Sorry na.

but ps. I do often take mirror selfies of what I wear in instastories (@sarahtirona).

Our entire renovation budget was allotted for construction and new furniture but we forgot to set aside money for modern fittings that will make us want to enjoy, USE and appreciate our new home more.

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Let's be honest. 

When was the last time you paid attention to the in-flight demos before a flight?

Last time I flew, everyone (including myself) was busy doing something else.

Texting, chatting, posting a photo on Instagram, taking a selfie, etc. Basically, everything but.

If you thought no one was watching or paying attention, then you've thought wrong.

So PANIC. Yes, I went into a slight panic because I noticed how much I aged in 2 years! OMG.

But looking back maybe it was just my bad lighting recently or maybe I'm still in denial but damage was done. Panic mode already set in and you know what happens when that happens. SHOPPING.

I had the nicest day ever. In the city. Whaaaaaaaat.

With all the negativity going on lately (hello, ltfrb, animal abusers and north korea. thanks for my new wrinkles. 🙄), it's hard not to feel frustrated and disheartened with life in general.

I've found the best way to deal with this is to focus on ways to make yourself feel good instead. Look in not out. Because when you feel good it resonates with the people around you which in turn makes them feel good and so on and so on.

So join me on this quick journey to good vibes. Click more to unlock the secrets.

#CUSTOMMEJORE: ATTAINABLE LUXURY FOR YOUR HOME

I have always been a frustrated interior designer. Way back in college, I would paint my room each year and change up it's theme. I almost went to PSID but laziness got in the way cause I found it too far away from where I live...which is also by the way one of my biggest "what ifs". 

Landing the cover of Real Living is still by far my most favorite media feature of all. I love styling homes more than dressing up. Oh yes x100! 

Which is kinda sad because I guess few people know this so I hardly get invited to home/interior events but when I do, I really make it a point to attend.

The most recent one I was invited to was perhaps also on of my most favorites ever. It was for the launch of #CustomMejore.

QUICK, EASY, JUICY, 7 INGREDIENT ROAST CHICKEN RECIPE WITH OUR #PAMBANSANGMANOK

A few days ago while scrolling down my Facebook feed, I came across a status that caught my attention. I can't exactly recall word for word but the basic gist of it went something like this... 

"Gourmet, Grass-fed, Braised, etc. At the end of the day, it just boils down to having something in your belly." 

I cannot disagree with this enough. It is soooo wrong on sooo many levels. Especially nowadays.

And I honestly think that's just laziness speaking. Seriously, it isn't that hard nor expensive to eat healthy and stop filling your body with poison. All it takes is a bit of research and minimal kitchen skills.

I'm sorry if I might come off as too adamantly serious about it, it's just with people left and right getting sick lately, it's something I take very seriously, especially with my family. I really believe in the saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" and what better way to do it than with good, healthy food.

#ANELLOINMANILA: LAUNCH OF ANELLO AT SM MEGA FASHION HALL

STYLE + FUNCTION.

That pretty much sums up Anello and that's also probably why Filipinos can't get enough of these Japanese/Italian bags.

Truth be told, we are one of the biggest consumers of Anello Bags worldwide which is why they decided to open shop here...

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SPENT QUALITY TIME WITH YOUR FATHER?

Nandito ako, kasama mo


Fathers may not often be associated as nurturing and warm individuals but they continue to be the light and pillar of the family through his hard work, determination to succeed, and selflessness.

When dads get promoted, who do you think benefits from it the most? His family of course. With every success and triumph, it is his family whom he wants to share these big moments with, it is them that continues to fuel him to do well no matter how tired he gets.

While it can’t be helped that sometimes he won’t be around much at home if work gets too busy, there’s always a way to create family time.

This Father’s Day, why not bring the celebration to dad instead of waiting for him?

HOW I GOT RID OF MY CYST AT HOME

A couple of months ago, I noticed a lump "down there". 

It was a particularly stressful month and my period was delayed for a few weeks so I thought I'd wait it out before panicking. Maybe it was related to my menstrual cycle since there were a couple of times when a pimple showed up a week or two before my cycle only to disappear on its own afterwards.

This wasn't a pimple though. It was larger and it didn't go away even after my super strong and very much delayed period came and went.

That's when I decided it was time to go visit a doctor.

TIDY HEIDY INSTANT STAIN REMOVER REVIEW

I received an email a few weeks ago from some students who were doing their thesis.

They were asking me if I could help spread the word about their product: a pocket friendly, non toxic and locally made instant stain remover ala Tide 2 go.

I am always getting spaghetti stains on my clothes so why not? Plus I LOVE getting emails from enterprising young kids +++ points since it's also locally made.

Here's my unbiased review for your reference.

BROWHAUS TRINOMA + NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS

I love Browhaus, I follow them everywhere they go. As of this writing, I am still frustrated that they have not yet opened a branch in Greenhills or Shangrila. I am patiently hoping, waiting and jealous of the fact that people up north now have one so conveniently tucked away along the driveway of Trinoma.

Not only that...

HONEST REVIEW: BLUEWATER DAY SPA HILOT

I was invited for a day of pampering to celebrate Mother's Day a couple weeks ago at BlueWater Day Spa.

We were allowed to choose between 3 services: a cellulite melter massage, a variety of body scrubs or a traditional Filipino hilot.

I have been trying to find a good "hilot" to hire for the longest time so I decided to give theirs a try.

Here's what I think.

#BELOBABY TALC-FREE POWDER REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

Probably the most common parenting philosophy in the 70's and 80's was

BUT DID YOU DIE?

Mom, I stuck my head in a can of cornstarch and can't get it out! Okay, but did you die?

Dad, I scraped my entire elbow on the street pavement! Okay, but did you die?

Mom! Dad! I ate my entire bottle of Flintstones Vitamins! Okay, but did you die?

Okay, we didn't die.
We're all obviously here and find it hilariously funny now growing up as kids in the 70's and 80's + all the ironies that came along with it.

I'm not about to go full on granola with you guys, I'm just saying that it's so much easier to be a "better parent" now with all the good stuff that's easily available to us now. Not to mention the new health studies, parenting groups and organic forums that are so accessible with just a couple of clicks on our keyboards.

HOW MAKING GIGIL MY TEETH ENDED ME UP AT THE DENTIST


colgate dual core toothbrush

I am terrified of dentists. Seriously. You cannot imagine how far I’ll go to avoid a visit. But a couple of months ago, I was hit with a debilitating toothache. No amount of pain killers could alleviate the pain in my jaw. I was in agony. And that’s when my husband dragged me to our dentist.

To my horror, I had an old cavity that was acting up! I couldn’t believe it. I brush hard! I brush a lot. Why? How?!?

OOTD: FLOUNCE AND RUFFLES FOR PETITES

I was bored and uninspired with fashion for the longest time.

You know with the whole normcore, "basic bitch" thing....

Nothing wrong with that, I am super guilty of filling my closet with multiples of basics that fit well and I still love them to this day.

It's just that when you're into style blogging, basics get boring cause there's only so much you can do with them. (At least for me.)

I still have a penchant for the stark, minimal look but I am super happy with fashion's current direction. More! is More! is so refreshing! I'm loving all the ruffles and lace and patterns and textures upon textures upon prints.

But a petite like me may drown in all that so here's how to easily pull it off...

#LOVEYOURSUMMERSTYLE: 10 YEARS OF SUMMER STYLE EVOLUTION WITH THE SM STORE

I’ve been blogging for close to a decade now (pls don’t do the math haha).

Yup, if your patient enough, you’ll find a ton of blackmail photos hidden in there somewhere.

But the upside of me documenting everything is being able to look back and see just how much my style has evolved. I never realized how much fun it would be to compile a decade’s worth of summer ootd’s until I actually did it!

Read on to see how I’ve transitioned from 2007’s extreme boho with low-rise denim and lace to 2017’s more refined interpretation + everything in between.

SPRING SHOES THAT YOU MUST ABSOLUTELY OWN

It is common knowledge that UK weather is extremely unpredictable. But even so, spring season is one of the four seasons that everyone looks forward to as this season marks the transition from winters to summers. Not only is it warm and dry, but it also has temperatures which are perfect for exploring this beautiful country.  The amount of sunshine received by the country increases in spring season which is attractive as people can complete more work during daytime thanks to British Summer Time. In the midst of all this, how can this fashion haven not have changing trends for this beautiful season?  When we speak of fashion, people generally think of clothes but one important accessory that gets neglected is shoes. Your shoes can change your entire look and make even the most simplest of outfits look stylish if teamed with the perfect shoes. While winter wear included wellingtons and snow boots, let’s see the must haves for spring:

OOTD: THE DAILY GOOD + THE DAILY GO-TO

I've been living in active wear practically all summer just because it's too hot out and I seriously can't be bothered. Running shorts have been my saving grace.

But there are days when I want to look decent or have to look decent. Say for a school thing or a meeting or an event.

I wouldn't survive this season without this essential piece.

I got it for less than 1k with a 10% donation to my favorite charity included.

HEALTHY US POTATO SALAD RECIPE - VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY!

Potatoes have been getting a bad rap and it's not fair. 

Contrary to popular belief, they aren't unhealthy at all. In fact, potatoes are packed with essential nutrients that are vital for athletes in training and those who live an active lifestyle.

When I used to wakeboard regularly, we would always cap off our sessions with a banana shake - for potassium which is known to aid in muscle hydration and recovery.

We were always told to stay away from potatoes because they're fattening, etc. I don't know where the hate is coming from. Seriously guys. Why give a vegetable such a hard time?

It's not the potato that's the problem, it's how you cook it.

In fact, I have just found out that potatoes contain more than 2x potassium than bananas. Yes. A banana only has about 422mg while a single potato is loaded with more than 1000mg! AND, they're not fattening at all. 1 serving ONLY contains 110 calories.


Aside from that, it also has the highest score per peso on these 8 essential nutrients: fiber, vitamin C and E, calcium, iron, magnesium and yes, potassium.

SO STOP DEPRIVING YOURSELF OF SUCH A GOOD VEGETABLE!

TIME FOR SOME LIGHT | OUTFIT 001

After going on and on and on about lighting in this post, I suddenly feel ashamed to share pics that look like these. hehe

I mentioned in a previous post that I'd venture back out to our fire escape and/or sun room but easier said than done. Turns out, our neighbors help has discovered that area as well and have been hogging it lately for ootd's. Serious. Kid you not. Need to figure out their IG handle :P

So anyway, back to the bedroom for now. 2 outfits in a week. What an accomplishment (for me.)

Nowadays, you don't need to invest in an expensive camera for great photos. Our smartphones are very much capable of producing high quality, ig-worthy pics.

Except in low light.

That's where the new Lumee Duo Case comes in.

It's nothing like flash, it's so much better.

I still dress up. Just haven't been in the mood to "shoot" properly because.

Because I feel slightly embarrassed all of a sudden to pose in public. Also, no willing photographer. Haha, especially now that I hardly attend events anymore which makes it even more difficult to document my outfits.

I also prefer being BEHIND the camera.

After 8/9 years of doing this, I'm still uncomfortable posing in front of a camera. Hahaha. Sorry na.

but ps. I do often take mirror selfies of what I wear in instastories (@sarahtirona).

#HEARTOFTHENATION : A QUIRKY IN FLIGHT SAFETY VIDEO BY PAL

Let's be honest. 

When was the last time you paid attention to the in-flight demos before a flight?

Last time I flew, everyone (including myself) was busy doing something else.

Texting, chatting, posting a photo on Instagram, taking a selfie, etc. Basically, everything but.

If you thought no one was watching or paying attention, then you've thought wrong.

So PANIC. Yes, I went into a slight panic because I noticed how much I aged in 2 years! OMG.
