It’s not OK!

Hey guys, I hope you have had a good week! I scheduled a post for today, but I decided to put something else here. I just want to get it off my chest. I will keep it short. The story started on Monday. Same as you, I have followed many bloggers. I get email notifications when they update their blogs. On Monday, I got a notification email. I didn’t have time to read the post through the day. At night, after I read her post, I started looking at blogs on WordPress. I came across a beauty blog. The blogger had exact same post, same title, same photo and same words of the post I just read. At the beginning, I thought it was just reblogging. However, I couldn’t find the original blogger’s name anywhere in the post. It didn’t mention about the source either. Really?! I’m still quite new to the blogging world. However, I do know bloggers put effort and time to publish each post. If you want to reblog, I am sure most of …

The Carpool Tag!

I was tagged by Rebecca from The Finicky Cynic for the carpool tag last month. Sorry for the delay. I just got around to do it. Do you know? Rebecca actually created The carpool Tag. I must admit that I haven’t done many tags since I started blogging. I did enjoyed the ones I have done. However, nothing is like this tag. I think it’s pretty unique. She wrote: “I was inspired to create this sort of tag due to the fact that I’ve done my fair share of carpooling at home and abroad, whether with family and friends or with complete strangers (safely, of course!). I find carpooling not only to be an economic way of getting from place to place, but also a great way to bond with other passengers! Friendship makes the world go ’round, am I right?” Without further ado, let’s just get to it.   The rules: Thank the person who tagged you in their post. Link back to the original creator of the tag (that’s me!). Pick your car (model, size, color, …

Healthy Living Tips

Hello, lovely people. I hope you all are doing very well. Sorry that I couldn’t post on Monday. We were away for the day. It was a last-minute decision. I probably mentioned that life has been hectic lately, but I am not complaining. All good things are happening around me, family and friends. I am really grateful.

Just my personal experience to share with you guys here. Hope you find the tips are tiny bit helpful. xx   Portion control.

Although I am so looking forward to the warm weather, my hay fever is having its moment. Half of my colleagues in the office are sick. I guess it happens when weather changes.
