Smell Fresh and Fragrant Without Hurting Nature: A Review on Tindaraga’s Shampoo and Conditioner Bars

Frizzy hair has always been my issue. My curly locks usually get tangled and it gets hard to untangle them especially early in the morning. I could recall having a struggle fixing my hair when I was still a nursing student back in college. IT was more than hell to make my curly locks be tamed and follow my brushed up styling that would end up in a tight bun. When I graduated from college and started working, I had my curly locks straightened out just for the fad. Later on I realized that my hair lacks the luster it

Discovering Myself Again at Bunzie’s Cove [Part 2 of 2]

Bunzie’s Cove is just a respite from everything. Once we had already settled on the villa with our things, we had already agreed on where we will be sleeping at night. CJ and Glister chose the mezzanine floor while Aleah chose the Master’s Bedroom. Me and Clarissa actually opted for the room on the “basement” but technically just below the main living room. In Bunzie’s Cove, the surroundings even at night time evokes a feeling of serenity. It has been my calm refuge with all the chaos I had experienced. For once in my life, everything made sense. I was

Kuta Bungliw: Sustainability At Work

In a place in between Daraitan and Genenal Nakar, stood an unspoiled hidden fortress that housed a sustainable eco sanctuary. It is quiet an effort to reach the place owned by my good friend and kumare, Jacquiline Go-Laruan and her partner, Ronald “Onad” Avenilla.
