About Me

Hi there. My name is Mary, a 35 years old Filipina living somewhere in Switzerland.

I started a blog with the same name sometime in 2015 but deleted it before a full year ended. My reason was that I was being so open with my life and I felt carried away, exposed, and I felt insecure. I was never an ‘open book’ type of a person and I tend to ‘protect’ myself and my emotions too much.

Being cucooned in a shell, however secure, is uninteresting. So this time, I will try to open up myself, my thoughts, decisions and maybe even heartaches. I believe that I have something to tell and I hope that I will get my courage to go the whole way, not be afraid of what people think of me along the way.

This is a lifestyle blog that covers mostly tips in Europe travels and beauty products that I have come to swear by. Most of the articles also cover saving and investing tips mostly for Filipinos like me living and working in another country. I also write about my frugal lifestyle and how I prepare for my eventual retirement in the Philippines.


thank you and happy reading! 🙂
