How I Made My (Easy) Cold Brew Coffee

Why I love my HyacinthMNL handbag

If you have been following me on social media, you might have seen my post about a cute native-looking handbag.

I had a very complicated work schedule last December. For the first two weeks, I have to work from 1AM to 4AM which means I don’t get to sleep till like around 7AM. People are starting to think that it was a problem and that I’m working too hard, but Tim and I view this opportunity differently. We saw this as an opportunity to actually go on a quick ride

WIFE. MOM. WRITER. ENTREPRENEUR.

Coming from years of being a singleton who's so in love with her career down in the big corporate jungle, marriage and motherhood doesn't come naturally to me.
