Amihan Sling by Hinabi.ph

This is my first native (rattan) sling bag aptly called Amihan Sling. I purchased this through Hinabi.ph. I got interested in the bag after seeing my friend post (or share) about it on Facebook. 

What’s so interesting about this bag is that it was made (one of the many products weaved and produced) by Alangan Mangyan Tribe from Paitan in Oriental Mindoro. 

According to Hinabi.ph, they are helping the Mangyans bring their handicrafts to a wider audience. Check out their FB page here.

Back to my sling bag. I bought the large size to accommodate important things when going out. I picked the one with dark brown leather strap, which Rei (from Hinabi.ph) said is free vegan leather made by the local leather artisans of Marikina. 

So, what do you think of my Amihan Sling? I’m just excited to use it soon. 

Mother’s Day Gifts that Say I Love You

My family is not big on giving gifts. We love receiving one but we don’t complain if we don’t get anything on special occasions. We spend on take outs and food deliveries if there are occasions or events to celebrate.

This Mother’s Day, I’ve got two lovely gifts from my special people. Thanks my loves!

Fashion Tips for 40 Plus Women

One of the greatest mistakes that women make in their 40s is not rethinking their wardrobe. It is true that there are some women who are already 40 years old but do not look like a day over 30. This does not mean though that they should not dress their age. A woman who dresses her age will always look classy and elegant wherever she goes as long as she is also wearing something appropriate for the occasion she would be going to. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Rethink Your Wardrobe. Disregard items that you know you will not be able to wear anymore because they are already too short or too loud for your age.
  • Accept That Your Body Has Changed. Women who are in their 40s tend to be more curvy and would put on some weight in some places. Working out will keep your body toned but things that might have looked great on you 10 years ago might not look the same now. Accept that this happens once you age.
  • Avoid Skin Revealing Clothing. Revealing skin at this age is not appropriate anymore. Leave clothes like this to the younger generation.

Remember that acceptance is always the key to feel more confident.
