I never imagined that I would come to associate the word "therapeutic" with watercolor. Growing up, I've gotten myself into various arts and crafts but never had the chance to experiment with the medium not until lately. Now, I could add it to the list of things I'd rather be doing on a Friday night. Apart from reading and writing (or eating) of course.

BeautyMNL: Makeup in a Jiffy + Maybelline Haul

BeautyMNL: Makeup in a Jiffy + Maybelline Haul | Anne's Scribbles and Doodles
Shopping is a delight but one has to admit that it's not all pretty. Long queues at the counter, the flock of people at this time of the year and not to mention the catastrophe that is traffic, it can get ugly. Then there's online shopping. It sounds great and the lure is too good to resist but truth be told not all experiences are delightful. Think of counterfeit products or delivery that takes ages (or is twice more expensive than the product itself). This prompted me to be extra cautious when it comes to the sites I buy from. Actually, I tend to avoid shopping online as much as I could. That is until I discovered BeautyMNL.

Wagging tails. Furry paws. Gentle eyes. Ready to go giddy all over? Pets are my absolute weakness, perhaps next to ice cream. When my best friends from Cebu came over to visit, I gave them quite a tour. As we traveled back to the city after a day trip in Tagaytay, we decided to rest and relax at this pet cafe we spotted in Cubao: Bengal Brew + Wolf and Bear Cafe.

Freezer Burn: Not Your Ordinary Ice Cream

Freezer Burn Ph: Not Your Ordinary Ice Cream in BGC | Anne's Scribbles and Doodles
If you need someplace touristy that's only a few minutes from the airport and showcases great food and awesome dining, BGC is the place to be. It was therefore a no-brainer when I brought my kindergarten best friends from Cebu to Bonifacio High Street's newest ice cream place, Freezer Burn.

The term "freezer burn" may not sound palatable by the dictionary's terms but chefs Miko Aspiras and Kristine Lotilla turned things around by marrying artisan ice cream with hot snacks. But more than taste, their desserts pack quite the graphic punch. If I may say, they fit the definition of what we nowadays call Instagram-able.
