Muji 2017 A5 Planner Walkthrough

January 5, 2017

I just restarted my Youtube channel. This time, I will no longer be posting videos about makeup. I didn't know that there's a strong planner addict community on Youtube. I am one of them so I thought I might share my planning tips and tricks, arts and crafting styles.

Here's my most recent video where I did a walk through of the Muji 2017 Planner.

I also wrote a review of the Muji 2017 Planner back in October. The link is here.

Just a few updates on the Muji planner: if you use ballpoint pens, it won't bleed through the next page.

I also recommend using the Uni Pin Fine Line pens in 0.3 mm and 0.5mm. The 0.7mm gel pen ink seem stronger. If you write with a heavy hand, it might bleed through the next page. Otherwise, you will only see ghosting or shadows. Those are okay in the planner world.

I am interested to know what planner you are using. I am in need of planner inspiration. I am also in the process of uploading my arts and crafts haul on Youtube. Don't forget to subscribe to my channel so you won't miss new updates.

Thank you!

5 Healthy Options Gift Boxes for Christmas

December 18, 2016

A great gift to give someone special is the gift of good health and wellness for the upcoming new year. Healthy Options Philippines have put together five gift boxes full of healthy snacks. There's a theme for each box and for sure, one of that box fits the one you love.

The Advent Candle Box is a Christmas box for the health enthusiast.


The Christmas Angel Box is for that someone you know who is allergic to gluten.


The Star of Bethlehem Box is for the certified foodie that you know.


The Evergreen Fir Box is for the fitness junkie.


The St. Nicholas Box is a healthy food snack box that the whole family can enjoy.


The problem is the Healthy Options website isn't very informative. There's no description on what each box contains or if it's customizable. I can't even find the price of the gift boxes or is it priced depending on the items inside the box?

I tried contacting them via social media but I was directed to their website which did not help. And, there's no Healthy Options store near me. I have to travel to a different city which is two hours away. I would love to find out more before visiting the store or buying.

If there's a store near you, maybe you could help me out. Leave me your feedback in the comments below. Thank you!

My Favorites This Month

November 21, 2016

..thus far.

1. Arizona Green Tea

An AriZona classic for over ten years, this is America’s best-selling green tea. Ever wonder how it became so popular? Well, the next time you buy one, take a moment to reflect upon what you’re drinking. 100% natural green tea. Just the right amount of ginseng and a touch of delicious Sue Bee® Premium Orange Honey. When you’re done reflecting, open the bottle and down it. It’s as delicious as ever.

What I love is that it's not bitter and not too sweet. So good!

2. Filofax Geometric Pocket Organiser

Soft touch leather-look organiser with striking geometric pattern and pastel blue interior. The cutest color combination item that I own. I truly love the soft leather and padded feel of the cover. Please subscribe to my Youtube channel as I will be uploading my unboxing video next month.

This is what I'm loving so far. How about you? Let me know in the comments below. Thank you.
