Junk Journaling – A New Found Love

I used to collect stationery papers when I was a kid. It was a fad for a while. We also used to sell them in our "sari-sari" store (Filipino version of a grocer). It was mostly the ladies who bought them but I remember saving money to buy for myself as well. I especially loved… Continue reading Junk Journaling – A New Found Love

Does the Tagalog word "budol" have an English equivalent? This was the question I had in mind when I was deciding for the title for this article. I Googled and the first link said that "budol" is a colloquial term for "someone who is gullible". I think that the word has no English equivalent.

Do you have YouTube channel, my dear readerships? I've had my YouTube account since last year but it's only this week that I actively upload videos on there.

Skin Care and Household Products at Home That You Can DIY to Reduce Plastics in Oceans
