What’s on your plate?

August 17, 2016

Greenpeace has embarked on a campaign which aims to encourage Filipinos to reconnect with their food by knowing who produces it and where it comes from.  Through this effort, Greenpeace hopes that Filipinos will have an increased understanding of our food and agriculture systems.

To initiate the conversation on food, nutrition and agriculture, we are in search of individuals and groups who would like to organize a food meetup where we can discuss and share ideas on how to improve our food system in the country.

Interested to know what and how the food meetup/conversation look and feel like? Join us this coming weekend for a discussion on food security with inspiring changemakers and live music. This event is organized by MakeSense, Good Food Community and IAMHampasLupa in partnership with Greenpeace.

But when an American politician and her convoy are assassinated in Mexico City by the Ghost Sniper—an American ex-military gunman for hire employed by Mexico’s most ruthless drug cartel—Pope must turn to retired Navy SEAL Daniel Crosswhite and the newest Sniper Elite hero, ex-Green Beret Chance Vaught, to track down the assassin and expose the corrupt officials behind the murderous plot.

The newest heart-pounding Sniper Elite thriller takes you on an action-packed adventure to both sides of the Atlantic, filled with the intrigue and movie-worthy warfare fans of the series have come to know and love.

Pre-Order: The Boy Is Back by Meg Cabot

July 8, 2016

In the brand-new novel from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Meg Cabot, a scandal brings a young man back home to the small town, crazy family, and first love he left behind.

Reed Stewart thought he'd left all his small town troubles—including a broken heart—behind when he ditched tiny Bloomville, Indiana, ten years ago to become rich and famous on the professional golf circuit. Then one tiny post on the Internet causes all of those troubles to return ... with a vengeance.

Becky Flowers has worked hard to build her successful senior relocation business, but she's worked even harder to forget Reed Stewart ever existed. She has absolutely no intention of seeing him when he returns—until his family hires her to save his parents.

 Now Reed and Becky can't avoid one another—or the memories of that one fateful night. And soon everything they thought they knew about themselves (and each other) has been turned upside down, and they—and the entire town of Bloomville—might never be the same, all because The Boy Is Back.

 The Boy Is Back is on sale October 18th. Pre-order your copy on Amazon. Read the excerpt via Entertainment Weekly here:


Joining The Planner Community, Maybe?

July 3, 2016

I have been keeping a #bookstagram account for more than a year. The great thing about this bookish community is the recommendation you get from readers all over the world.

There are generous Instagrammers who set up contests in order to increase followers. I was lucky to have won three times since I've kept this bookish account. The latest was winning the planner goodies. This must be a sign for me to join the bandwagon of creative planning.

A month later, I received my freebies from StopNJotCrafts in the mail. It took me awhile to post and update my social to share my free stuff. Also, please support StopNJotCrafts. They are also on Etsy. They sell some really cool stuff thus making planning so much fun.

Do you plan? What planner do you use? Is it on Instagram? Let me know. I would love to see it. Thank you!

DIY Projects For Bloggers & Social Media Influencers

May 12, 2016

There are a few things influencers need. In this post, you will know how to make these things from scratch. Time to flex those creative fingers.

1. Business Cards. Bloggers and influencers are the new media. It's good to have business cards handy so that opportunities will come your way. Hand them out during events. Businesses or companies can easily get in touch with you in the future.

2. Pretty Backdrop. A marble backdrop is on trend. It's costly to buy marble furniture. Unless your kitchen counter top is already in marble finish, great for you. Maybe, a DIY faux fur rug project instead?

3. Planner Inserts. Yes, it is indeed the digital age and the more reason to go paperless. But, there are like creatives out there who still rely on writing things down. High five!

I hope this post inspires you to get creative, blogger or not. Let me know what other DIY projects you have in mind. Thanks for reading.
