When a sister in Christ and friend asked me to check out Project Organic‘s products, I was more than glad to try them. Why? Because their products are all ORGANIC. It’s just perfect for my sensitive skin because I have eczema – the reason why I can’t be a beauty blogger. πŸ˜€

Perfectly Roasted To Goodness: Coffee Tonya Roaster

*This is not a sponsored post, just sharing.


Coffee in bed, literally. *wink*Β πŸ˜‰

Yes, I woke up to the aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans from yesterday’s coffee adventure with my hubby around our neighborhood, thus, the photos and the feature. The scent of roasted coffee beans lingered in the four corners of our apartment since yesterday. No wonder I couldn’t blame coffee lovers for being this addicted to coffee.



Near our place there’s a Japanese coffee store where they sell anything and everything coffee-related from roasted coffee, coffee in bags, teacups, tumblers, coffee maker, etc. Every time we pass by, I am always reminded of my hubby’s Mom who’s a coffee lover. We always pass up the opportunity to drop by though because we’re always on an errand and need to hurry except yesterday. I am no coffee addict but the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans is just irresistibly enticing. Β We’re giving it to my Mom-in-law when we visit her today and hoping she likes it. πŸ™‚

They gave us two free iced coffee drinks too, by the way. I asked hubby to try it alone but he said we’ll try it when we get home – we were loaded with stuff from that day’s errands. When we got home I had a couple of sips and was surprised that it actually tasted so good. One thing more, they gave us 4 sachets of coffee bags for free.Β Thanks, Coffee Tonya. We only went there to buy coffee for his Mom and ended up going home with lots of freebies. God is good, ain’t He? *wink*


Hubby and I bought 100g of Brazil Bourbon which, according to one of the store clerks, has a little bit of chocolate and sweet flavors. She recommends this one to those opting for coffee with a milder taste. Of course, we couldn’t pass up Coffee Tonya‘s very own special coffee in bags too.

Upon selecting your preferred coffee beans from their quite enormous selection of different varieties of coffee beans, they’ll roast it right away (5 minutes waiting time) but should be consumed 90 days after roasting. You may also request how fine or how rough you’d like them to grind your coffee beans and the degrees before they roast them. They also have a cafe where you, your friends and families can cozily lounge around.

But wait, there’s more because we happened to chance upon their 50% discount promo on selected products. We bought the Brazil Bourbon for 280php/100g originally offered for 560php/100g and the Coffee Tonya special coffee bags (7 pcs. per pack) for 170php.

I am no coffee lover but if I’ll become one after this coffee experience, I might say you’d better try it too. πŸ™‚

You can visit their shop located at 1331 Angono StreetΒ (Across Makati City Hall),Β Makati CityΒ and check out theirΒ website and Facebook page to know more about their products and the cafe:


The reason why I am not a coffee lover is because I am a nocturnal person and too much caffeine, even if it’s just a cup, will make me sleepless for the entire night. But I can take it in smaller quantities though, it won’t affect my sleeping pattern. That’s one trivia you got there about me. πŸ˜€

RUROUNI KENSHIN: The Saga Still Continues


This was the year that I fell in love with Kenshin Himura also known as Battousai “The Slasher” of theΒ Samurai X manga series shown in Studio 23.

I was a first year college student back then and I must say I instantly got hooked to this series and never did I miss a single episode. It was my daily routine – go home before 6pm after classes so I could watch every episode. I thought I was the only one, until I found out, it became a SAGA.

Samurai X stuff were sold everywhere, from VCDs to wallpapers, posters, bags, notebooks, wallets, everything! I could not help not buying myself one memorabilia not because I was a true-blue Samurai X fan but because I loved the story of the manga series THAT MUCH.

I bought this wall hanging and placed it inside my bedroom just above my bed so I can see it every time I wake up. Yes, really addicted to the manga series. πŸ˜‰

AND, the series just influenced me totally I tookΒ “arnis,”Β a type of Filipino martial arts similar to that ofΒ “karate,” “judo,”Β andΒ “eskrimaΒ but uses two canes orΒ “rattan”Β sticks as its primary weapon, as one of my PE classes in college. Somehow very similar to what Kaoru teaches in her dojo.Β

And I got quite a high grade for it. A real Miss Kaoru fanatic there. πŸ˜‰ But not too good grades in my other classes. 😦

You can refer to this article for more information regarding the manga series which is also known as Rurouni Kenshin.

And if you want to watch the animated manga series, you can watch the episodes here:


Due to popular demand, the creators of this phenomenal manga series decided to come up with its first film adaptation on 2012 which instantly became a popular hit not just in Japan but in several other countries including the Philippines.


After the success of the first Rurouni Kenshin movie, 2 sequels followed which featured the climax of the manga series. The first of the sequel is Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno which was shown starting August 20, 2014. My bf and I watched it and now he is a Samurai X fan too and we are both watching the animated manga series together – his first, my nth time. πŸ˜€

So yes, we just could not contain the excitement of watching the second movie of the sequel to be released on September 24, 2014 which is Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends. Here is the trailer:

I believe “the legend”Β will never end. πŸ™‚


Love & Frozen: Freezing Love



One of the gifts I received last Christmas was wrapped with a beautifully written message. The gift came from none other than my sister of course. Well, sisters know better, don’t they? πŸ˜‰

When I got the gift and read the message, the first two things that popped in my head are God’s love (that’s why He gave us His only son, Jesus Christ) and yes, love in Frozen, the movie. The movie is about sisterhood, anyway. Now, ain’t it perfect? πŸ˜€

I must admit I’d never ever get tired watching that movie over and over again. It just completely raised my expectations in Disney movies and princesses to a higher level. It certainly surpassed the true-love-kissed-by-a-prince ending for one and the villain is not the usual step mom or a step sister.

The movie is a perfect notion of fairy tale movies portraying attitudes and conflicts of today’s generation that is why it wouldn’t be a wonder at all if it will be one of the blockbuster movies of this year.

The story line isn’t dragging at all with its well-written plot and very different setting. Definitely no scenes were lifted from classic Disney stories and fairy tales making it very unique and yes, modern. No unnecessary dull scenes are present in the movie as well as it is a comedy. And yes, the songs used in some of the scenes in the movie are also well-arranged. It doesn’t sound too classical and yet appropriate to all ages though it is a cartoon movie.

If you are to ask me about the movie in general, all I can ever say is that I am all praises. Yes, it indeed deserves the loud round of applause and a standing ovation.

Oh and being the feminist me, I just love how they developed the character of a brave, confident girl in the characters of Elsa and Anna – overcoming fears, celebrating breakthroughs and dealing with conflicts.

Just the perfect movie to watch during the holidays – makes me feel all the love and the warmth and say or rather sing β€œthe cold never bothered me anyway.”  πŸ˜‰
