Grace`s Open Book: Notes during Quarantine

Hello, everyone! 

Grace`s Open Book: Notes during Quarantine


How are you holding up? For most people, the days during the enhanced community lock down were some of the hardest. I can`t say otherwise because not being able to work the way I used to was specially saddening for me. I`ve always tried my best to work hard and work smart and when I`m presented with some limitations to be able to do that, it becomes a real challenge. The positive side of being locked down or in quarantine was that I was able to take notes of significant changes I ought to apply in my life.

As my readers, I would love to share with you basic yet life-changing notes I wrote while facing the financial, emotional and spiritual challenges during a lock down: 

Note #1: Finances

Thankfully, doing those viral challenges for saving up like Peso Sense Ipon Challenge, and Mr. Chinkee Tan`s Ipon Challenge has helped me tremendously when I needed funds the most though it`s not much. This lock down is genuinely an eye opener how significant every cent is. 

I remember reading Mr. Robert Sy Tan`s "What Would You Do? If This Was Your Last Day On Earth", Mr. Don Soriano`s "Break Free" and many books about budgeting, attending a financial seminar, and discussing with my older sister about money management. All these books and effort would be wasted if not put into action.

Grocery Shopping and Organization: How I Store Foods in My Single-Door Refrigerator

Hello, everyone! 


One of the relaxing ways I used to de-stress is retail therapy. I find it quite satisfying to treat myself after all the stress from work, home and pollution outside. Nowadays, I`m barely able to do this because of the pandemic. Hence, I had to divert my attention to a safer and more practical way to release the negative tension in my body and mind. 

I had been getting peace from making sure that my small home is well kept. I have gotten a lot of really helpful tips from different communities about organizing refrigerator, pantry and food storage. Here`s what I came up so far when it comes to organizing my small refrigerator:

I found that keeping frozen meats in containers make it easier for me to defroze them unlike keeping them in their original plastic bags and just stuffing them in the freezer. Back then, whenever I had to defroze meat, I had to take out the other meat in a plastic bag that got attached through ice. Now that they`re in containers, I simply have to choose which one to defroze and I don`t have to worry about the difficulty of removing the plastic bag and stuck meat.

Hello, everyone! 

The start of the month of June has been a blessing for me because I started working again. Hence, I became more inspired and motivated to design and make the most out of my planner. Ever since I was a young girl, creative planning and journaling has always helped me cope with the good and the bad which is why I`m absolutely cheerful that I`m back and doing this more actively again. I wanted my days to be more lighthearted, positive and sweet so I chose pastel pink, purple and blue in most of my weekly planner spreads.

Here are my weekly planner spreads for June:

This is such a cute planner spread. I specially love the "Just a note" cut out. I`m just using the box of crafts I received from a good friend who had to declutter because she was going abroad (Thank you, Yani!). The little flags of "to-do," "work," and "to buy" are adorable. I absolutely love finding these in the craft box and using them on my planner spreads.

The on-going Pandemic has put a pause on many people`s plans including mine. I was on "no work, no pay" for 2 1/2 months hence the stop of regular financial provision. Thankfully, my company provided some financial assistance as well through conversion of remaining leave credits and prorated 13th month pay. If only I didn`t start saving during the start of the year, I would`ve also been doomed and on a forced diet. Fortunately, that isn`t the case for me though sadly to say many people can`t say the same

Being on the lockdown for more than 2 months has made me truly realize these 5 significant financial moves to do now that I`m back to work again which I would love to share with all of you to make sure that we`ll all never lack financially in the future:

A lot of the most beautiful elegant dresses I`ve seen are usually black. Black is such a classic and versatile color that it can be paired with almost anything. 

A black dress doesn`t have to be boring, you may look for a minimalist ruffle dress with modern design. Black dresses are the ultimate go-to in times of uncertainty. Choosing a black dress with minimal design like color blocks, modern ruffles and simple prints will help you accessorize your outfit easier. 

Ruffle dresses may not seem like a desirable choice reminiscence of the expressive outfits of the 80`s. Ruffle dresses with a minimalist and modern touch are certainly unique. The little touches of flare ruffles give make the dress more feminine as well.
