Covid Turned Me Into Someone I Never Thought I’d Become: A Thrifter

I wasn’t quite sure whether I’ve done or decided on life-changing decisions over the course of this pandemic. I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me that these past eight months or so have been quite a blur — perhaps the memories you can hark back to are those of the TV series you’ve binged on,…

Dear Mommas, Teach ‘Em Young by Gywn Ferrer

I have been asking my good friend, Gywn to do a guest post on my personal blog; a topic that I lack experience of that I cannot impart to my readers – motherhood.
