Happy Travel To: Mila's Hill

12:07 PM Nana Jover 4 Comments

The Holy Week or Semana Santa is one of the significant religious holidays observed in the Philippines. It begins on Maundy Thursday and ended on Easter Sunday. During this time of week where businesses would shut down and people would celebrate and follow their own traditions. To some it’s the time of the year where they can finally get the opportunity to travel with families and quietly celebrated the Holy week.

Yesterday my Family and I decided to spend our Maundy Thursday on Mila’s Hill, an inland resort situated in a tranquil area of New Lucena. A perfect place to relax and get in touch with nature. They also offer different activities for affordable prices such as Horseback Riding for only Php 50.00, or go splash in their pool for only 75 pesos, soar up in the sky with their zip line for only Php 100.00 or simply go interact with their animals.

Black and Pink Polka Dots

Summer  in the Philippines is really HOT! so choosing the perfect clothes can be tricky
besides I just can't wear summer outfits to work.
Lucky me my cousin who just came home from Japan got me this dress.
It's very trendy and made of light fabric.
I wanted to look trendy but at the same time not overload my self with accessories. 
I don't really like wearing too much accessories when it's really hot so a simple ring and necklace is 
all I wore and 2 simple hairpins to tuck my hair.

What do you think of my look? =)

Florals on Florals

Today I'm really down with fever but i feel so guilty that i haven't blog
for quite a long time now. But i was definitely caught  up between my work,
my only business Vanita Sorella and niece's upcoming birthday. Most of the time i felt like i' am already
abusing my self, forgetting that sometimes i need to take a rest too.

Life tends to be so busy for me... But today i really took some time to give my self a little
serenity. And nothing is more peaceful than surrounding your self with beautiful things =)

Shades of Black and Pink

4:11 PM Nana Jover 12 Comments

I always love the color coordination of Black and Pink. A touch of femininity and a touch of mystery. I bought these skirt days ago but never actually found the perfect top to pair it with and only last Monday when I got this black tank top that I decided to finally wear it. I’m always the girly girly dresser so a stroke of florals also added to the girlish look.

Tips for a successful Garage Sale

9:46 PM Nana Jover 5 Comments

Today I had my first ever Garage sale, although I've been selling online for months now this is actually
the first time i decided to hold a garage sale.  I am very hesitant at first because i know it would be
a lot of work, knowing i have to arrange this and that but we the help of my family i was able
to deliver it all. 

I could not really say that i had the best and successful garage sale. My sales wasn't that high at all (well except for my 7 yrs old niece who made a lot of money selling her pre-loved clothes too lol)  after all it was my first time to hold one and i admit that i wasn't able to plan it ahead but nevertheless I'm still happy that i was able to make it.

Here are 5 things i learned from my garage sale today:

1. Plan ahead 
2. Try to have a joint garage sale - the more the merrier
3. Advertise - though online, posters, flyers etc.
4. Everyone loves a freebie - yeah because i do too =) so try giving your customers
something they can bring home for free. =)
5. Allow Haggling
