Anti-Plastic Pollution (3 ways to contribute)

It's been a while since i last made a post here in my blog. As a comeback, I decided to make my new post quite meaningful. This is about the environment. Yes! I've always wanted to be active in making our environment better but I have never been consistent. This time I will try my best to retain my spirit and passion in saving the emvironment.

GET HIP GET GREEN!


 What inspired me was this show I watch in tvN called Hyori TV (i will post about this show later).


 When i went to Tagaytay, i noticed that almost all stores in there uses paperbags rather than plastic bags. And when I went to Manila, supermarkets, department stores, botiques, and others, strongly promotes totte bags or reusable bags to their customers for shopping. So anyways, I decided to focus my environmental passion in anti plastic pollution.



Plastics are almost non-biodegradable, which means it will never be decomposed, and it will retain in the surface of the earth for a very very long time. Just imagine how much volume of plastics are made each day and people just throw it away! I can just foresee mountains of trash plastics covering our mountains, and there will be no more space for plants to grow and animals to live. Plastics thrown at see may dominate the waters and there will be no more space for fishes and other sea animals to lay eggs and swim.




1. Recycle and Reuse Plastics. 
There are variety of ways you can make disposable plastics useful at home or work. You can it out and make it useful in other bizzare ways. Microwavable plastic containers can be used as container of accessories with its transparent quality.

2. Use Recycable Multi-Use Shopping Bags.
I'm so happy these items are available everywhe at very affordable and cheap prices. These things also comes in different designs and colors.



 3. Reuse Plastic Jugs and Bottles.
I read that reusing plastic water bottles is harmful to health - I say don't but them. I advise to buy those plastic jugs or water containers that are safe to reuse, like this Sola Iced Tea container. It is also better to bring along water with you so you will not be forced to buy water from disposable bottles if you become thirsty.


 There are actually numerous ways to fight plastic pollution, but it all starts with prevention - prevent buying plastics and gathering them in your home or work.

 As for me, whenever I get medicines from the pharmacy, I prefer to put them on scratch papers-made-to-small-bags than putting on a plastic bag.

 I also bought from a beauty store called HBC, and they just give you out the product and receipt without the plastic bag. They have this slogan "Walang Plastikan" (no plastic).

 Anyways, there will be more about this. I am so excited to share with you my ideas and pledges for our environment.

FHM Philippines Racist Cover

This was supposed to be the cover of FHM's March 2012 issue. Before releasing the final cover output, Bela Padilla's FHM cover was bombarded with criticisms saying that it is too racist. The cover featured Bela Padilla with dark-skinned women behind and beside her, with the caption saying "Bela Padilla Stepping Out of the Shadows". Bela and FHM publicly apologized for the negative impression the cover conveyed to the public. In the end, the magazine company cancelled the release and decided to change cover and featured celebrity.

Mix & Match : Tutu Skirt

Tutu skirts are primarily used by ballerinas, but it is also used as a fashion icon by many fahsionistas. I think one of the main reasons is that it gives you a certain unique chic flare once you use it.

Just like jeans, tutu skirts can be paired with anything. With 'anything' I mean you can go rocker, preppy, or you can wear it on a day event, a semiformal, a casual - to make things short, it can be an all-around fashion item. Bur of course you must be able to pair it well with the right top and shoes.





Variety of Tutu skirt colors, designs, cloth, and prints are offered in the market. I suggest you buy colors that are basic and can easily be match with items you have on your closet, or items you will still buy.
Basic colors I suggest are beige, cream, white, black.

LET'S MIX AND MATCH!!

Doctor's Bag is Still In!




You know that doctors have their signature bags - the "Doctor Bag". It started to be noticed when home services were done by doctors to whose "elite" people - like those with fever or those going to bear child. It contained tools which would help the doctor assess and cure their in-house patients. I think we all saw this bag at movies from old days.



LV Speedy Bag




In 1930's, when Louis Vuitton designed a ladies' bag called Speedy, perhaps she was inspired by the bags used by the doctors. Not later on, brands like Gucci., Channel, Bottega Veneta and Coach made their own versions of the doctor bag.







Easterbelle's Crocodile skin







Nowadays, the Doctor Bag is becoming quite popular again that it's not just doctors who use it. It is now a fashion item. A must-have that caters both style and functionality. It is mostly made of leather, usually a hand bag, but some has slings for shoulder use. I have one Doctor Bag which I inherited from my grandmom - it looks vintage and cool. Here are some Doctor Bag styles you would want to have:

Nikki Minaj's 2012 Grammy's Performance was Disrespectful!

Have you seen Nicki Minaj's Grammy's performance? If you didn't then I bet you heard about it, right? It's been buzzing throughout the internet, TV, and elsewhere.

Her performance was thought to be the biggest performance for the Grammy's night that producers placed it towards the end of the Grammy's to keep viewers staying tuned to the show. However, instead of gaining appraisals, Minaj's performance became a subject of criticisms.


(watch video from youtube)

Minaj sang her song "Roman Holiday". The performance started with a confession to a priest, then showed a video of a priest performing exorcism, and ended with her levitating above the stage.

Valentine's Recommendation: I Kissed Dating Goodbye


Last 2010, I read a book called "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" by author Joshua Harris. It was actually a Christian self-help book. It's just a think book you can finish reading it in a day. It consists of sample stories and quotations which you can really relate.

Now, Valentines Day is up coming so I decided to recommend this book to those people who are single or those who are struggling with their love life. I, personally, been through a lot of rocky roads before with regards to my love life. A friend introduced me to this book. I was reluctant to read it since I'm not really a reader, and I guess I was just too stubborn to get some help back then. In the end, I just gave it a try. There were many, or rather plenty of times which I found myself nodding while reading. I could relate to almost everything. I think you also need an open mind while reading.
