Take The Long Road and Walk It

Running errands today, and it’s a beautiful day out so I thought I’d go out and walk it instead of taking a car or even my bike. It’s not like I have any meetings to think about today. From Kapitolyo to Megamall (despite despising them, this trip is a necessity, but I’m not giving them any more money than I have to!) in jeans, my favorite basic white tee, sneakers, no makeup, NO BAG! Just the essentials.

At zero cost, zero traffic, zero headaches, zero emissions, and a whole lot of calories burned! This is so remarkably liberating!

I Smell You, Alice Blue!

I’ve got a new home improvement product that I’m excited to share with everyone!

I chanced upon the Alice Blue candle kiosk at Rockwell on a liesurely window shopping stroll. Their Tiffany Blue motif and yummy fragrance easily attracted me. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that these candles were locally manufactured, hand-poured and made of soy — vegetable wax, which is both biodegradable and renewable.

Evidently, vegetable wax candles burn longer. And if they’re coming from a renewable source, even better!

I spent about 20 minutes just sniffing around, deliberating which scent I wanted my dressing and bath rooms to smell like. Not a fan or sweet florals or fruits; I tend to gravitate towards clean, simple, fresh, “white”-smelling (sampaguita, ylang-ylang) scents, so I settled with a delicious White Tea & Ginger variety.

SOLD. Two in my eco-bag, please!

Alice Blue is located at Rockwell Power Plant Mall, Makati. For more information, visit alicebluecandle.com or e-mail inquiry@alicebluecandle.com.
