Order Organic Food & Healthy Snacks Online via honestbee

I hear you. We all wanted to stay focused on our fitness and wellness goals, however, the most challenging part of the journey is finding healthy food which is readily available (online). 

Thankfully, honestbee, my favorite online concierge and delivery service now brings healthy products right at our doorstep. I am excited to learn about these local brands that offer really interesting organic food and healthy snacks (that even come in really cute packaging!).

honestbee just recently launched Organic, Fresh and Healthy category with a selection of best merchants offering nutritious, healthy and organic products. This gives consumers easier and faster access to wholesome food choices. I think it is also great for new brands to get exposure and reach their right audience. 

During the launch of the new honestbee selection which was held in YogaHive in Makati, we got to take part in a 30-minute Yoga Session. 

I do Yoga and ModelFit workout if I have extra time in the morning, but I like joining classes because it is more guided and motivating to know you are progressing and following the correct form.

There was also a Meal Planning Session conducted during the event and a very informative discussion about nutrition and wellness. I learned that I am somehow doing "wellness and fitness" right. Haha. Here are Tim Nutrition's tips for good health:

Small purposeful exercise to start the day
80-20 rule for eating (80% healthy stuff 20% indulgence)
Be active throughout the day
Strength training a couple of times a week

I was so happy to see Marga Banaga who also shared her journey in losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. She made a vlog about her journey that went viral. It was the first time we saw her after she lost weight and @anagon and I couldn't help but look and admire her.

They marinate the chicken for 24 hours and charcoal-roasted to perfection to ensure that the chicken served will truly delight and will keep the customers coming back for more.

#HowHardDidAgingHitYou Challenge + How to Age Gracefully in 10 More Years

#HowHardDidAgingHitYou Challenge + How to Age Gracefully in 10 More Years

#HowHardDidAgingHitYouChallenge How Hard is it, really?

I see friends posting in Facebook their photos taken in 2009 and 2019. The 10 year challenge is fun to see how most aged/developed into the best version of themselves. I am somewhat skeptical to join the bandwagon because I read somewhere that the photos might be used to test AI for face recognition. Memes are nice but sometimes we give too much information about ourselves.  

I would like to think that I am aging gracefully and I still feel flattered when people think that I look younger than my age. I guess that is one of the cons of looking matured when I was in my teens.

#HappyNewYou My Go-To Place to Shop for Pampering Products: Watsons

#HappyNewYou My Go-To Place to Shop for Pampering Products: Watsons

#HappyNewYou My Go-To Place to Shop for Pampering Products: Watsons


Life lately is all about keeping and doing things that spark joy. 

I am greatly influenced by living minimally, and Marie Kondo has been a big help in this transition. I love that more and more people are finding joy in keeping their things organized after the release of Netflix Series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. 

Keeping things that spark joy is one of my goals and I applied the same in my body and everyday lifestyle.  Taking care of my body is in the top of my list as this would help me achieve my other goals in life. 

My go-to place for shopping for everything I need is Watsons. I always love Watsons for it has everything I need from body care, hair care, health and even cosmetics. I always go to Watsons to buy my travel essentials.
