So you’ve got your festive outfit set and the fancy gift wrapped for your “monito” or “monita". All that’s left undone is a party season-perfect hairstyle. 

The fresh out of the shower look can be seductive yet temporary. Blame it to tropical climate, it can spoil your appearance, besides making you feel sweaty and stale. The heat and humidity brought about by extreme weather condition, likewise, dries out the locks easily and make it more fragile.

Adding damage to your delicate strands are the chemical contents of various products on hand. From shampoo to conditioner and hair treatment, down to styling goods to groom it to your liking, their harsh synthetic materials jeopardize the natural oil and luster of your mane.

Because you are what you eat, the fate of your crowning glory is in the plate. Your diet must have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to become shiny and strong. So don’t overindulge, especially this time of the year when gastronomic feasts are spread almost everywhere you go. Be careful on what you take in, thinking that it’s also what you feed your ‘do.

2017 is coming to a close end. This year, I was able to try decorating my weekly planner spreads more. It was fun even though it took some time before I was able to actually jot down my activities and plans for the week.

I also made a post, "My 5 Planning Tools for Daily, Weekly and Monthly Planner Spreads" about the top planning tools or materials I often use whenever I decorate or plan my weekly planner spreads. You may read it for more details as I included in that post the majority of the things I used in the weekly planner spreads below. As far as I can accurately remember, I didn`t spend any money in designing my planner spreads since I`ve had so many leftover art and decorative materials since I was in elementary. I simply used available items I had at home.

The 2018 Belle De Jour Power Planner`s weekly spreads are very similar to the 2016 and 2017 versions which is why you can still get inspirations from the weekly planner spreads below:

Our home is where we should feel the most comfortable and relaxed. Having the appropriate arrangement, organization and design in the house is significant, which is why designing our home with only minimal accents and decorations can help minimize our stress and burdens in life. Here are 3 easy and simple ways you can add minimalist accents to any room in your house:

"What`s in My Bag?" by @TheGracefulMist (www.TheGracefulMist.com)

Wherever I go outside the house, I often need to be carrying a bag. I always need to make sure that I have everything I could possibly need which helps me to go through my day with less chaos and stress.

[READ: Back-to-School: What`s in My School Bag?]

Back when I was younger, around 14-17 years old, I often carried big bags. I often thought I need to be as prepared as I could be to the point wherein I`m carrying unnecessary items because I was very exaggerated in my preparations. However, when I turned 18, I discovered the beauty and comfort of small purses. Hence, why I used my Zaful Cat Handbag so much.

This is one of the first few art pieces I saw and it became one of my favorites. The sculpture looks like a couple dancing on top of a rock. I liked the minimalist look with the simple silver body and transparent heads.  The beautiful art piece beside it is also one of my most admired sculptures in the event.

They sell bags, boxes, crafts, jewelry, picture frames, scrapbook kits and accessories, wall displays, wallpapers, woodcarvings and many other products.

I still remember visiting their main branch, exploring the variety of items that they sell, and buying cute and vintage stickers, and notepads.

Recently, I tried to organize my notes, journals, and planners. I dropped by at one of Papemelroti`s branches to get small notebooks so that all my notes, plans and other things are segregated according to purpose. I also bought other cute things that I can hopefully use a lot.

Small rooms can be a great place to lounge or be in if designed properly. Here are 4 simple ways to help brighten and visually enlarge small rooms:

Growing up and trying to be an "adult," there are instances wherein you might have to participate in college, corporate and celebratory social events. These types of events often require different types of dresses depending on the time, place and purpose of the event.

Choosing a dress to wear to a formal or semi-formal event is quite confusing and difficult with the number of available dresses to choose from online and in stores. This is why choosing versatile dresses with different lengths might help you in wearing the appropriate dresses for different functions.

Planning 
is a very helpful way to organize life`s activities and happenings. It allows for better mental and physical preparation. Planning, organizing and preparing with a planner has been commonly known to make events easier to manage and track. Along with that are several tools that keep the written and journaled life happenings more convenient, fun and motivating to read, understand and act upon. Such tools aren`t exactly necessary but rather add-ons to keep one`s planner visually pleasing, interesting, enjoyable and easy to follow. Decorative accessories and items for the planner tend to seem an unnecessary extra expense. However, there are other ways to keep daily, weekly and monthly plans organized, easy-to-read and visually pleasing without spending much money.

Acceptance of Our Lives` Paths | 1 Quote and 2 Interpretations

“AcCePTaNCe OF ONeS PaTh IN LiFe IS NeCeSSArY SO He CAN OBTaIN LiFe`S BONUS.” by The Graceful Mist (www.TheGracefulMist.com) 

“Acceptance of one`s path in life is necessary so he can obtain life`s bonus” is a quote I created using the symbols of chemical elements for an assignment in Physics class in high school. This quote was initially meant to express that accepting our own designated path in life is necessary so we can fully receive the blessings meant for us and make the most out of them. However, based on a short and positive remark, the teacher had a different impression and interpretation that is geared towards our acceptance of other people`s achievements in life. Both initial interpretations are quite similar depending on whose path the reader is thinking but both make up a perspective conducive to a respectful society.

“I Love Milk Tea" is a popular milk tea shop with many branches in the country. It can be franchised which is why there are many I Love Milk Tea stalls and stores. It offers to serve different flavors or variants of milk tea, fruit tea, frappe, poppin' yogurt tea and rock salt cheese.

The Promises for the Princess and the Pauper

The Promises for the Princess and the Pauper by @TheGracefulMist - www.TheGracefulMist.com - A Fashion and Lifestyle Story (Philippines - Filipina - Filipino - Style - Blogger)
"The Promises for the Princess and the Pauper"
Once upon a fairy tale, a young lady who lives in a damp and dreadful house full of vermin and pests, saw the light. When she saw the light, her disposition dissolved. The light was more than merely the illumination of understanding.  It was full of promises and possibilities.

“She`s gone.” As those words sunk into my subconscious, my whole world seemed to stop. One will never truly realize actuality until it happens. Life seemed to stop for a moment until I was sitting on a couch clinging my little hiding place of comfort.

Moments of emotional release later, still dazed from what happened, I walked towards the place I knew would help me talk to Someone who can change the fate I refused to accept. My body was quivering from shock and suffering. As I humbly knelt down before Him, lowered my head, put my hands together and begged, “My King! I know you`re merciful and miraculous.” My lips quivered. “Show me a miracle and revive her from this distressing death!” Tremendous tears poured over my fallen face as I searched His face for any sign of deal. 

I begged and begged. “Her body has probably been frozen already. I believe in your Power. I know you can still bring her back to life.”

3 Fashionably Functional Outfits for a Breezy Beach Day | A Wishlist ft. RoseGal

Hello Graceful Girls!

Going to the beach in late February or early March isn`t very common for a lot of people as most usually go on late March to early May since this is the summertime for a lot of kids and students. However, this is also a great time to reside beside the beach for a few days whether it`s for vacation, recreation or business trip. There aren`t many people lounging in the white or pink sands that a lot of islands in the Philippines have. Although this may seem a great time to go to the beautiful beaches in the provinces, it`s still quite breezy as we`re still Marching towards Summer.

Here are 3 outfits compiled from day to night for a breezy beach day:

1. Classically Cute (Daytime)

This outfit is great for day and semi-formal events, business meetings, a lovely brunch date with your husband or a tour around the area in the morning. It might look quite too much for some people but this outfit is great for a fashionable morning. It can be altered by switching some pieces that suit your needs and where you`re going.
