15 Life Lessons that I Learned From My First Marathon


I’ve learned that finishing a marathon isn’t just an athletic achievement. It’s a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible.

Blog Updates: New Name, New Host, New EVERYTHING!


Hi hunnies! Last week, I had a friend review the blog and I got a rating of 5/10 which I think is depressing. It means I have to work extra hard. He informed me of the blog’s key and weak points. He also gave suggestions on how to improve it so I’ve decided to get rid of everything and start from scratch.

What’s NEW!

We’ve moved to a new host and gotten a new blog name, GOLDEN ISLAND SEÑORITA! How do you like it? 😀

I’ll be doing an in-depth tour of my hometown, Manila. I’m known to be an urban roamer among family and friends. I get private messages here and there asking the ‘where‘ and ‘how to’s around the metro. I have a knack for remembering details and directions so I thought I’d write about it and share them with you.

I’ll also be adding itineraries, give you tips on budgeting and financing your travels, more travel hacks and maybe some books you can carry for your long-haul flights. 😀

I accept product reviews and sponsorship. For inquiries, please send me a message and I’ll get in touch as soon as possible.

I would really love to make this big and I am open to more reviews and suggestions.

That’s all for today. Thanks for dropping by!
