Pink Birthday Giveaway (Open Internationally)

This is nothing but a little giveaway to show my appreciation for everyone who reckons my posts worthy of their time. With my birthday coming up in a few weeks' time, I have no plans for myself except the Bears Ending Tears project. 

This giveaway will end on December 5. For the simple mechanics, kindly wait for the Rafflecopter widget to load. I'm likewise looking forward to read how you usually celebrate your birthday! 

Seaside Daydreamin'

For those who are swamped with work and cannot be away for a long time *guilty!*,  there are myriad wonders in the country that are just waiting to be relished. Take for instance Canyon Cove in Nasugbu, Batangas. It's a residential resort that's open for memberships although they accept reservations from visiting guests.

While my family has been visiting different Batangas beaches since the 90s, Canyon Cove is perhaps the best one irrespective of the steeper reservation costs.

Birthday Wishlist

It feels heartwarming to watch kids as they blab about their wishes. I believe that regardless of our age, we must never lose that penchant to have faith that our wishes will come true in their own perfect time. 

While I have this list of things which I want to purchase, drafting my birthday wishlist seems more special. This is purely out of fun but with my birthday coming up in three weeks, it does not hurt to light candles in advance, right?

A Call for Aspiring Hope Givers

A child growing up loved, cared, and nurtured is a wonderful idea. However, not everyone gets the chance to have the components that will make their childhood as remarkable as it should be. Last year, I got the chance to be with kids of farmers in Tagaytay. The lifestyles of these kids are devoid of luxury yet they are happy because they have their families with them. How about those who do not have such kind of fortress?

There are kids who have been abused and abandoned due to the destitute circumstances of their parents. On the other hand, there are some whose future remains unknown due to the looming threats of their illnesses.

Nonetheless, the situations of these kids do not make them less deserving of things that other kids their age enjoy. They might be underprivileged but that doesn't mean that they are not entitled to be cherished. 

Ditching Heels for Vans

It is definitely possible for one to wear heels 24/7. However, doing so might leave your feet bruised, blistered, and tired. Only mannequins have the ability to stand in heels perpetually.  Regardless of my love for heels, there are times wherein I simply want to ditch them and opt for something that's more relaxed.

I've been eyeing Vans for the longest time but I was fraught with doubt. I wondered if there was a way to wear them without appearing too mannish. The trademark rubber soles of the shoes are tempting so before this year ends, I'm making a vow to get a pair for myself. Here are three of my Vans picks and how I'm planning to fancy up using the pairs:
