    Trixia Salonga

    Hi! I'm Trixia and welcome to my slice of life. I'm not your average blogger, I'm a hybrid of multi-dimensional shoujo, a rare breed of legal loli and a unique original producer of ideas and inspiration. My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights. Contact me at reshadaseamaiden@gmail.com for collaboration


    The beauty of working from home lets you be comfortable and extremely economical. Economical in the sense that you've invested in the gadgets and set-ups that you're going to use in the long run. I've read a lot of blogs of how dreamy it would be to work from home and spent an entire 2 years saving up to achieve my goal. 


    I am not a stay at home mom but I do have my commitment to be my mom's guardian and a mother to 4 legged friends one of which has a temper to raise their quills most of the time. So when I got the chance to finally finish up all the requirements for working at home, it was definitely a lifelong achievement just like a Sims character achieving a long-term goal. I do have to worry of the constant flooding at home though, our location is not as strategic as others and little rain would mean knee deep soaking, plus a bonus of snakey visitors also making the house their temporary abode is never fine. 


    Moving on to my comfy buddies, these are the usual things I keep near my desk when the timer starts. My cardigan would usually dangle at my computer chair for easy access when it gets too cold, this little buddy would keep me warm and I love the feeling of my hands hidden inside the sleeves. I found this in a small garage sale from where I usually have a quick dinner if I am too tired to cook and guess how much I even had it? $1.00. That's true and the moment I laid my eyes upon it I knew that I found my soulmate, the owner said that she couldn't take off a stain at the lower part of the cardigan, so I consulted our trusty handmaiden who can do the job and it's all brand new! It's like the same feeling of how Jun in Jun's Kitchen resurrected a Japanese kitchen knife and for sure had that person regret the amount he sold it to. The size is XL, it's 2 times bigger than my usual size which is small but that's what makes it so special right? For me, bigger cardigans feel more like a huge pillow enveloping your skin is a winner. Sometimes I just get careful not to fall asleep though because when it can get comfy that makes me sleepy.


    I have with me an oversized mug of sweet chocolate either warm or cold is fine, but I cannot consume coffee because I would palpitate, so if you can consume coffee, you are one lucky human. Don't be fooled, the mug is really an oversized version than your usual mugs, I got this for also $1.00 at Quiapo and life has never been the same with this mug. Why? it's actually one of my secrets why I get the supple skin, I call it my hydration mug, for when I needed much hydration this one sure does the job. 


    Besides the mug and the cardigan, I have my handy brush to keep my hair neat. My habit of combing my hair has become somewhat a way of bringing out creativity. I don't know it's like hair = creativity. No, really I wouldn't wonder why, because hair is a woman's crown, we all feel confident when our hair is beautiful, right?

    Then my phone, to answer emails and messages from my clients. Sometimes, mistaken by others that I ignore the message but actually, I am at work and I do avoid being distracted by non-work related messages. I have a high tolerance for answering them but I get misunderstood even if I follow up later on. huh...

    I wish facebook has a status update at messenger too... I could put: "At work in facebook" Status, which I feel won't be believable for others. If you are wondering what's on that white pouch it's actually my beauty makeup and skin care regimen. I keep them handy when I need to go to live camera, you still have to be presentable even though you are at home or even just be beautiful to boost confidence is also enough. Well, it saves me a lot of time because after work when I'm too tired to cook I just eat out and I don't need to use my time to put makeup because they've been applied. Did you also know that makeup is set well and blended up better after work?

    There you go, this is the things that keep me comfy at home. How about yours, I'd love to hear how you make your self-comfy at home or at work. What do you think? can you share it?

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin


    Berkeley residences keep a little secret to its passerby and people seldom notice the beauty of what is in front of them. It's this <pink sakura-like tiny tree located just at the entrance.

    I wouldn't wonder why people don't notice it that much. It seldom blooms this flower and only lasts for a few weeks. 


    The soft pink colors and the metallic color of the building give off the feeling nature modernity in the city. For a Moe like me, whenever I see a tree resembling much of a Sakura tree in Japan, I always feel a skip of a heartbeat. It's because of most anime feature this tree in a fun, dramatic and reminiscing beautiful appreciation of nature and it's so much like the feeling of Christmas for Moe. 

    The tree withers and loses its flowers but this pictures just captured that very second that it bloomed so gracefully. I cannot wait for the next time I see it bloom again, it gives me a feeling of happiness. It may sound shallow to you but sometimes we are so engrossed in the daily life that we fail to appreciate what's around us. 

    I was on my way to work when I saw this and I never failed to appreciate the small token of appreciation it is giving to nature.

    I want to see more of this trees around and I want to see it in full bloom, it would be dreamy to see them on a pathway. I also dream of the same as other Moes, a walk to a beautiful pathway of flowers and sakura trees, a beautiful clean rivers and a serene picture of surroundings.

    I believe that this is achievable if all are cooperative and strive to do a common goal, after all we are humans and aren't we the top in intelligence on the pyramid of animal wits.

    This tree is different with a Sakura tree as this has a hint of yellow on its middle flower and unlike a Cherry blossom, it's smaller and blooms few flowers.

    So, that's the last season I saw this beautiful tree bloomed, I'm going to wait for another year again to see it. Hopefully, I see it bloom more flowers than ever. 

    Thank you for the astonishing view Mr. Tree, till next time again.

    It's sizzling summer hot and I have started rearranging my closet to showcase the best cute loose outfit that could help me survive the heat.
    I am a big fan of light blue tones and whites much so the striped like one piece easy for walking around.























    I missed several times for myself lately and has become an a business-workaholic person again and I know I have to at least give my self a break. Now is the perfect time as summer is the best time to cool temperatures down.

    Never ever will I forget my favorite white sunnies, they pair up with every outfit I have in my closet, I have to give it up to Divisoria for supplying these cause they just are my daily companions to shield my eyes from the sun.





    I have my beach towel with me because underneath that striped blue dress, I wouldn't miss the chance not to take a dip so I would be having my swimsuit underneath.


    This is just as perfect and easy because the elevators and corridor area requires a person to at least dry up before going to respective rooms and this would be my easy cover up.

    It is sleeveless and I never am embarassed to flaunt God's ectomorphed arms he gave to me. Although, I may have visit Hey Sugar before I wear this.

    For a pair of good sandals, I haven't planned on that yet but I'll do a follow up post for that and maybe add in more accessories. The outfit is still on progress and stay tuned for the new additions.
    I would love to see what you are planning to wear this summer? Share it in the comments box below.
    Thank you so much guys love you all xoxoxo

    When everything is too overwhelming and nothing seems to work all you have to do is to slow down a bit...




                                                                                                              You're probably into an adrenaline 

    until now but take really slow deep breaths focusing on slow inhale and exhale, and just 

    think of the happiest event of your life.                                                          


     This is your first step.




    Now, you may have piled up those tasks or dilemmas


     but you won't be helpful enough until you pull yourself together.


    For now, what you should do is to slow down a bit.


     Is it possible to take a vacation? Or maybe just a short walk?



     Or just stay at a park or beach side


    where there are less people around and


    you can have your own space.




    With that space,
     try not to think about your problem 

     but focus on creating happy moments only, 

    like stare at the sunset or feel fresh air, create a sand castle, take a swing.



     Why not grab in a pair of headset 

    or if you are alone turn the 

    sounds on with smooth favorite music that helps calm you...



    Just remember.

    You're not in a race. 

    Everything is just an illusion

     to keep you distracted of what you really need to achieve. 

    Some are merely just challenges.


    Don't worry about it too much. It will all be okay.



    When all has settled in try to reflect and ponder on for your next action plan.



    Now, its time to prioritize what you should do first. Which has most importance?



    What should you first do?


    . .

    I got it from a post. It says a challenge... I wanna get a glimpse of your life, take a snap of what's infront of you.

    I was lying down in bed when I read this and turned my camera on and snap a photo of our ceiling with seem to need some cleaning.

    Actually, I was also very curious as to what others might have answered. I wanted to take a little peak in their life, see how my friends are doing.

    While for others, this has become a thread of envy.

    Nowadays, we often compare ourselves with others and we fail to see what is in front of us. We fail to be thankful of the blessings because we think others have better ones and frustration sets in.

    We actually have so much that we should thank for, including just your gadget with you that has capability to connect with the world or even just a simple breathe that others struggle to have.

    Be thankful for this once and you'll feel that sense of satisfaction that you got all that you need and you're all set to make a difference.

    Upon examining my shot, I realized I am this close to achieving my dreams. I have come so far and I'm almost on the finish line, I just need to hang on quite a bit, do some effort to reach it.

    what about you? can you share to me the snap shot of whats in front of you and comment it?
    . Saturday, April 21, 2018 .

    As I scrolled through my feed, almost everyone in my circle are thinking of a quick summer getaway. They have uploaded their pictures of their adventures which of course involves the sand, beach and somewhere cold. I, on the other-hand have stayed at my room and staying cool as I can. I visit the condo once in a while to swim but most of my time I am at home. People thought that they'd be so many who use the swimming pool but actually it's the opposite.


    Berkeley residences in Katipunan remains to have seldom swimming pool goers so I enjoy the pool all by my self all the time. I get to refresh and revive myself unlike going to public pools. What I just hated the most though is that the new management requires to pay a P150.00 per person swimming pool fee for other tenants than us which makes them a total klutz, how about our monthly tenants then? well, I am on total snob with them for now because I hate their corrupt management.

     Now, don't wonder why I'm always looking pale white because I mostly skip summer, more likely celebrate it before and after summer season. Yes, if you remember I did mermaid-ing already, I consider that my summer getaway and since I did not want to be toasted to the sun, I scheduled it to start immediately before summer season even started.

    For a digital nomad like me, summer may not exist because you can work anywhere, anytime! well, I love my life online but I hate the heat of the sun. It's hard to focus on a monitor when you have heat cramps all the time.

    There was never a day where I never felt a small headache or migraine due to this heat. I did all my means to keep cool even to make a homemade Kakigori or placing ice on top of my head. My God, Global super warming! Even more, that my energy is low during these season.

    I noticed it's not only me who experiences these but I've found out most people have been affected by this hot season. Even my bestfriend feels vertigo due to this heat, I would understand since I visited provinces near her and damn it feels like I am in desert and I won't be able to last so soon with that.

    1. Sweet cool beverage/ ice cream

    Ice cream is on demand at our household, the whole gallon. It only takes us less than 3 days to consume those sometimes in just a few minutes even, imagine how this temperature affect us, ice cream actually helps a lot especially with low sugar levels since I seldom have appetite due to heat then I work, I become hypoglycemic all the time, so this keeps me going until such time the temperature gets lower and I get to cook a meal.



    2. Sour type soup

    Choosing a meal is as tough. Nothing seems to satisfy me, I would choose not to consume any food because the heat had terminated my appetite but I had a few sour soup which helped regain hunger.



    3. Love your chores

    There is but one thing that also kept me very cool and I never thought I would like to do this because the next is actually house hold chores. Yes, You've read it right. House hold chores involving water, washing the dishes and doing early morning laundry. They actually kept me cool as long as I re-hydrate all the time and not push my self too much they do help lower the temps.


    4. DIY cooling pads

    During my working hours, to avoid overheating I would place in some cooling pads on my head. I just do these and insert the iced sheets on wear it with a band. I have these small ice packs that are slim and perfect fit for these cats and it work wonders. I could switch this to a cooling eye patch when I want to! :)

     Just make sure to add in a lot of extra plastic so that water won't drip.


    5. Frequent Bath
    Taking frequent bath may seem to be a chore but it definitely helps a lot to cool down. I schedule baths in the morning and afternoon to keep cool before heat turns on and after the sun has gone down so I could sleep nicely. My bathrobe became my most frequent attire to wear who cares? its summer and it's like you're always wearing towels on the beach, right?

    A few days ago I was awaken by a simple reminder of Meaw cosplay's 3 year anniversary. It was such an unforgettable convention at 8th Philippine cosplay where everyone just enjoyed and performed their talents. Since this memory brought me smiling everytime I see it, I have done a quick simple Erina Nakiri cosplay from Shokugeki No Soma, this is done to thank everyone for all their support. 

    I am a fan of Shokugeki no Soma especially Ms. Nakiri.

    I uploaded the video thru my facebook page.

    The dress is from Season 4 Episode 1 which I have been waiting for so long to watch and now I can't wait to see the next episode. 

    For all my supporters, thank you very much for encouragements, I love you all so much. :)

    February is the month of Love and full of seeking to perfectly express your love in beautiful and fabulous ways. Because they want to ensure they're the apple of the eye of their special someone come the romantic occasion of the year that they will celebrate together.  So if you find yourself being whisked away to a charming place or have planned on a candle-lit dinner date with your beloved, you’ve got every reason to get all glammed up on Hearts Day! Why not? T’is a celebration of love after all. 

    Make a big impact by putting together a look that brings out the best in you. From your clothes and make-up to the tiny details that count, you have many options to get that stunning aura on V-Day.  Better start with the hair, which usually draws attention to a person. Per studies, a head full of hair indicates youth and health at its best. Power and stability, on the other hand, corresponds to a long, shiny tress. A bouncy bob means bubbly personality. Meanwhile, curly locks add to masculinity and femininity. 
    Gotta hair like them? Well, don’t lose hope if you ain’t have any. All you need is love. And what a better way if it comes out naturally in you. Taking good care of it should not be enforced, but rather a rewarding pamper for yourself. This applies, too, when choosing the right product for your mane.  Stay away from chemical-based ones. This is a “must”, especially when dealing with problems like shedding or thinning of the hair. Most of which contain parabens as preservative, according to aesthetics and rejuvenation expert Dr. Cecilia Catapang.

    “Through the years, as you use chemical-based product, slowly and little by little, your body absorbs the parabens, which accumulate to significant levels, enough to induce what is called an estrogen sensitive breast cancer,” she says. Synthetic haircare products have several adverse effects because they are drugs. What you don't know about them might hurt you. So avoid it the next time you go over the counter for your supplies or ditch what you’re using today for naturally-made products because they aid in stimulating hair growth while maintaining its natural water, shine and vibrancy.

    Amid a glut of chemical-free hair solutions out there, Dr. Catapang recommends NOVUHAIR for its being natural and compliant to the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive, which means it doesn’t have paraben. In addition of its safety benefits, this topical scalp lotion specifically is the only hair growth product in the market containing 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients working synergistically to help remedy hair problems from growth to vanishing.

    NOVUHAIR helps rejuvenate, nourish and maintain moisture in the scalp and improve the overall appearance of the tress. Lastly, it’s more effective and safe solution to help remedy hair loss and promote hair growth. Sounds like it’s time to shift to “nature’s answer to hair loss”, ladies and gentlemen. It’s time to start loving again your hair with NOVUHAIR to enhance or bring back the old “crowning glory” to look your best in front of your dearest, or turning the head of a potential mate on you this V-Day. Let the love begin!

    They say that second-time is the sweetest, proven true with my 2nd part-time job as Product Ambassadress for Cospray held at Crowne Plaza Hotel for Dance like a rockstar Easter event special. By the way, if you haven't seen the videos, I have compiled them on my youtube page.

    What happened at the part-time job.....



    EDSA had no traffic since it's Easter Sunday and most people went home to their own provinces. I, on the other hand, had no province but just Metro Manila, I enjoy travel the best on this times, because the road traffic is like as if I'm in the provinces. We got there 3 hours before the time in and met with our contact person.





    It was my first time to visit Crowne Plaza and my excitement is the same as the kids on Easter Egg Hunt, we had a designated stall and seats for the promotion of the products and I was glad to meet a new cosplayer friend, Ms. Geneva.




    The shift hasn't started yet but so many kids lined up to try the product already, a free trial was done to each kid wanting to get an edgy color for their hair.




    I had brought my stencil and did this, gold was the best for the black hair because the color pops.





    I explored further in the hotel where I found a main hall for the event and damn it was bigger than I thought and fancier.



    What I enjoyed most is the photobooth and gone 2 times before and after the shift.

    Mascots visit the hall from time to time and kids loved to take pictures with them.


    The shift is 1:00-3:00 pm and we cleaned up after. I enjoyed the day of my odd-job, it was truly rewarding as we discovered so many important things that I would want to show you soon....





    Hope you all enjoy reading and don't forget to follow for future posts :)
