Going Places I Bea Arboleda

GOING PLACES OUTFIT SLIDER Happy new year, SS Readers! Another year has begun which means everyone gets another fresh start. This 2018, we are all blessed with new opportunities to grab and chances to take. For some, they'll finally be getting that dream car they've been wanting or that necklace they've been saving up for. Others are planning more exciting trips with friends and family, while some others are working even harder to develop their best skills and talents. Whatever we choose to do, we're all going places. I also have some personal goals that I have set for myself this year. Most of them are related to college and improving relationships with other people, but one thing I want to...

LIFE MOVES FAST: BUTTERFLY TWISTS by Mari Jasmine

LIFE MOVES FAST: BUTTERFLY TWISTS May 12, 2017 By MariJasmine 8 Comments Life moves fast. Especially, if like me, you live in a big bad city that never sleeps.

WORK-LIFE BALANCED

WORK-LIFE BALANCED    New year – new start.  My new years resolution wasn’t to quit doing something.  But to TRY something. START something.     Each month was a reason to try something new. Anything. New food. New bar. New skill. New date. New experience. New anything. January was to give blood (fear of needles!) February was to try oysters (fear of seafood!) March was to learn Italian. And April? April was to try yoga. And the rest as they say is history.    So. Hot Yoga. What’s it all about? Stretching? Toning? Sweating? None of the above? All of the above? All depends how ‘hard-core’ you go I guess…   Me. Why did I start? Initially because of my scoliosis. When standing...
