Are Laptops Better than Cat Beds? Your Cat Thinks So

This one’s mine. Said every cat ever. Are you inspired to complete your thesis? Planning to finish writing that long-awaited novel? Or it’s that infernal presentation that your boss has been harping about? Whatever the reason, you brew yourself a hot cup of coffee and fire up the laptop. You’re about to do some serious…

Achieve Financial Joy by Decluttering Your Wallet.

It is in my pocket, in my bag, in my wallet, and on my mind, every hour of the day! Want to achieve financial joy? Manage your wallet with these three steps, the KonMari way! If you’re a devotee of Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo, you must be a big believer in her method of…

What I Learned From My Weekend Social Media Detox.

In this day and age, we live in a constant and consistent updatable (if there’s even such a word) lifestyle of connection and being “in-the-know”. The moment we feel as though we’re missing out on something important, we feel the pinch. Similar to what addicts feel when drugs and/or sex are out of their reach….

Read a Book and Put Your Brain to Bed.

Did you know that six minutes of reading before bed can help you sleep, dream and live better? No? Well, neither did I but that’s not the reason why I read-before-my-bedtime routine anyway. I read because it helps me to relax and eases the day’s stress off my mind. But if you ask me, though,…

Why You Should Keep A Journal (Mine Would Be With A Typewriter).

Now that I have a typewriter, I’ve often been wondering what the heck am I going to use a typewriter for as I already have a laptop and several new Moleskine ruled notebooks (these are still waiting to be used). I’ve done my share of researching online, reading a variety of blogs and websites on…

Welcome Wednesday: What’s Your Best Time To Get Things Done?

Here’s a little something to ease the weekday stress. What is your best and preferred time of the day to get things done? Are you the early bird who catches the worm? Or would you rather get up a little later, get more sleep instead of waking up early because you already do that on…

Don’t Lose Sleep Over It.

How many times have we welcomed the weekend only to come back to work on Monday feeling like we still needed more hours to unwind? Do you often feel that way? That you were so hyped up on Friday, and going over your plans with your friends to paint the town red. Only to realise…

Spring Cleaning, One Box at a Time.

In view of yesterday’s post and all the previous articles I have ever written on minimalism and de-cluttering, I decided to go on a de-cluttering spree myself. The condo that I share with my husband was not just a home but also a storage for all sorts of items that we no longer use or…

Adopting a Minimalist Lifestyle.

Let me ask you a question: Would you be able to live in a home like the one above? No, really. Would you? Or will you think that your home is so threadbare that you need to fill it up with all the knick knacks that your family and friends have bought for you over…

Seven Snacks to Keep You Going.

I think it’s highly unavoidable for many of us to go through the entire day without getting up and snooping around the kitchen for something to munch on. Especially if we’re not at home and busy working elsewhere, particularly at an office. We spend most of the day seated at our desks while facing the…

Marching into Good Health.

Did you know that March 2016 is the National Nutrition Month? Well, if you didn’t know, then now you do. But if you knew, are you eating right? Sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the program is dedicated to helping Americans (and basically everyone in every corner of the world if they wanted…

Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.

“Five more minutes, I promise… Zzz…” That’s what we always tell ourselves when our alarm rings at 9:00am in the morning, regardless of the day. That’s what we always say to the person who has been tasked to wake us up in the morning. And then you find yourself waking up at noon. OH NO!…

Book Lovers, Unite!

Today’s post is going to be a laidback topic and a relaxing read because I figured that I may have gone quite wordy over the past few weeks. So today, we’ll round up the week with a Top 10 List. Let’s see now, what would you put in your Top 10 List? Top 10 Places…

Cat Cuddle Sessions.

It has always been a trend I noticed with my cat. Once he’s out of his room, he would dash from one end of the condo to the other end as if being chased. He enjoys sneaking up to our washing machine to investigate the strange noises coming from it. Or he would try to…

My Husband: The Kleptomanic

Walk into any clinic, post office, or government office and you will find a pen provided for the convenience of their patients or customers. These pens are usually attached to a mass of rubber bands tied at each end to form a long thread to secure the pens to a clipboard or a holder which…
