newspaper nail polish

I usually paint my nails but it has been a while since i've done that until a few weeks ago when i found out about the newspaper nail polish trick. I find this design really cool and i know i just have to do it and see it on my nails. My first wasnt really successful, you can just barely see the newspaper print (that was because i realized now that you should really use a "rubbing alcohol"). So here's a picture of my second attempt in putting newspaper print on my nails, not yet good but with practice i am going to perfect it. =)

How to do the newspaper print nail art?

1. Put a base coat, i prefer colorless but you can also use light colored nail polish so that the print get to really stand out

2. Wet your fingernails or dip it into rubbing alcohol. I insist you use rubbing alcohol otherwise the print wont really transfer onto your nails

3. Its best if you already have cut out strips of newspaper, small but big enough to fit in your nails. Put that bewspaper onto your wet nails and dab a bit more alcohol on top. Press it a bit securely and wait a bit to dry out. then take off the newspaper and put a new coat of colorless quickdry and that's it!

love the earth

we only have one earth, that is fact. i once read that "we do not own this earth. we just borrowed it from our children" and i totally agree with whoever wrote that. which is why we should love this earth, the place we call home. and it saddens me that there are some people who have no regard to the destruction of the environment in order to gain monetary value, whatever compensation they get now will be nothing compared to what will be our future if we don't stop in destroying our environment. i am not trying to sound like an all knowing person but we can all help the environment if we want to. it doesn't have to be real big, even small act of kindness to the environment counts. like, keeping your candy wrapper in your pocket instead of just throwing it everywhere can make a difference. i know it sounds petty but if everyone will think alike that it is okay to throw their candy wrappers anywhere, then the whole world is just one big trash can then. and aside from that, we can help too in the products we buy and the stuff we use in our home and in our offices. i am so grateful that the consumer awareness has opened up to the eco-friendly products and we should fully support and buy those biodegradable products whenever we can. they may cost a bit more than your normal product but remember you are buying as well the future of the environment for your kids' sake.there are a lot of stores offering environment friendly products, and Ethical Ocean is one of that.

"Traveling is a brutality. ​ It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly ​ off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things - air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it." ~ cesare pavese

Etiquette for Expats, Tourists and Other Visitors to the Philippines

a repost (read: copied) from Jessica Zafra, yes the one and only jessica zafra... i just love the way she writes, but this article is something that everyone should read. i insist.

read on and enjoy :)

Welcome to the Philippines! You’ve probably noticed that Filipinos are friendly, accommodating, and nice all around. For starters we are always smiling. It is not true that we are always smiling, but it is likely we do it more than your people. This is because it is so much more pleasant than frowning or scowling.

And people generally look better when they’re smiling, no? Here in Manila there is so much aggravation to put up with. It’s sweltering even when it’s rainy, the traffic is horrendous, it’s noisy and poverty is widespread. Smiling is the last thing one feels like doing under these circumstances. If you think about it, smiling in these conditions is a form of protest. It is a way of rising above the situation. It is not, as you might think, a vapid reflex.

Your people probably have a lot more to smile about than we do. They should smile more, it would make them look younger.

Right now we’re smiling at you because we are curious as to what you, a foreigner, are doing in our country. Are you a corporate executive, a chef, a diplomat? A retired soldier fetching your fiancĂ©e whom you met online, or a Brazilian model? A Peace Corps volunteer or an NGO worker? A tourist drawn by our famous beaches, or just looking to get laid? Filipino curiosity is insatiable. We have to be in the know. We don’t even have to do anything with the knowledge, we just have to know.  

No doubt you have been told that we pride ourselves on our hospitality. Our hospitality is not a PR thing; it is genuine. We are glad that you’ve come all the way here—we like having guests. You are someone new to talk about.  Entertaining others entertains us. And since you’ve taken the trouble to come all this way, we figured the least we could do is prepare this basic guide to help you get acclimatized.

1. Our beaches are renowned the world over for their powdery white sands, brilliant sunshine, and the spectacular biodiversity in the water. Beaches, as far as we know, are on the seashore. When you are more than ten kilometers from the sea, say, in the shopping and office complexes of Makati and Mandaluyong, don’t feel compelled to dress for the beach.

We assure you that we natives won’t feel ill at ease if you don’t wear your loosest tank top, ratty board shorts and crumbling flip-flips while walking around the mall. Don’t dress down on our behalf; we do like to dress up. We think it is a way of showing respect not just for the occasion and the setting, but for yourself.

2. It is hot and humid in Manila so we sweat a lot. In order to stay cool and refreshed we take baths or showers every day, if not two or three times a day. If those of us who were born and raised here find it hot, it must be positively infernal for those of you from America, Europe, Australia-NZ and the temperate zone!

You must shower every day, if not several times a day. For maximum refreshment we recommend generous applications of soap, shampoo, and antiperspirants. Just dousing yourself in cologne is not enough to cool you down. Take a shower every day, you’ll feel so much better.

We insist.
