Beside U Bag- The Perfect Companion By Your Side

Tuesday, December 08, 2020

     This pandemic has changed our lives in many ways. We learned the value of cleanliness because now more than ever, hand washing became a habit. Even if we think our hands are clean, there's an urge to wash it with soap and water right away when it touches any surface. Speaking of adapting to changes, I also change the way how I bring my essentials. My motto now is the lesser, the smarter. The functional, the better. This implies how I carry my essentials most importantly my bag. 

     Since I only go out for errands or when there's an important matter to do, I need a bag that is lightweight, sturdy, easy to clean, and functional. If it's stylish, why not that's already a bonus. Looks like I've hit the jackpot when I saw the perfect errand bag from Beside U Bags Philippines. Know more about the features of their bags, and why I highly recommend this brand below.

     Mothers are simply extraordinary. We have multiple roles at home, at work, and other tasks in between. We have lots of energy, right?! But sometimes you may ask, from where do we really get all the strength and energy every day. Sometimes we forgot that being busy takes a toll on our emotional and mental wellness.⁣
     I remember that it's more challenging when I was breastfeeding my son. It lasted only for a month because I can’t produce enough breastmilk to feed my baby. I was frustrated and disappointed during that time. My mother told me that there are ways to enhance the supply of breast milk and one of them is by taking a moringa supplement.⁣ Years ago, only a few brands are available in the market and we are not sure if those non-organic sources came from pure ingredients. Fast forward today, I’m glad to know that there’s a European Union certified organic moringa from Sekaya.⁣ Know more about this brand after the jump!

6 Tips to Improve Your Chances of Loan Approval

Friday, November 06, 2020

     A bank loan offers a quick solution to financial deficits. The money from a loan can be used to fulfill emergency financial needs, start and grow a business, or acquire and improve property. 

     Take note that a borrower can only apply for a bank loan in the Philippines; it’s completely up to the bank or lender to decide if a borrower can get a loan or not. That’s not to say, however, that borrowers can’t build their case. There are still steps that you can take to make it seem like it is to everyone’s advantage if the bank grants your application. This, in turn, will give you a better chance of getting approval. If you’re planning on applying for a loan from a bank, here are some of the things that you can do to maximize the possibility of eliciting a favorable response.
