January H.I.T.s

Window Seat Wanderer: January HITs

The start of a new year has got me thinking aboutĀ stripping things down to the essentials. I saw videos about Korean minimalism and choosing sustainable products recently and these honestly left me inspired. I want to strip my wardrobe down to just, maybe, 20 key pieces which I can mix and match, and also let go of books and other things I have lying around. I also want to eat healthier (because Benji Travis the green juicer, plus the girls, are so #goals).

I don’t know where to start, though, but I reckon it involves some intense spring cleaning. (SPOILER ALERT: I’m planning to let go of some of my Harry Potter stuff soon.) It probably also involves a lot of research (which I should make time for) and convincing myself that I can live without color. šŸ˜

Anyway, this month’s H.I.T.s are also about essentials. Well, no, not really. But most of the stuff here were made from natural ingredients, which I super love, and are definitely things I would probably carry over to my *new healthy, minimalist life* if ever. LOL.

Yamang Bukid 10 in 1 Turmeric Tea

I had sampled this for the first time when we went to ViganĀ in 2015. I expected it to taste bad but it really didn’t; it tasted superĀ dood (comment if you know where that expression’s from, lol). Apparently, it already has brown sugar and wild honey mixed into it, apart from these other ingredients:

I encountered this again last December, at one of them Christmas bazaars, so I finally bought one!

I feel totally light after drinking this — like I’m finally adapting a healthier lifestyle but not really, lol. I think it even helped prevent my body from developing a full-blown cough recently. My nasal cavities were a-tingling the other day and my throat started becoming itchy afterward; but when I drank this tea, it just went byebye. So, thumbs up!

Anker Power Bank

Kevin gave this to me for Christmas last year, so I finally got to replace my old Romoss power bank (which he also gave me two years prior, lol). The old power bank was starting to malfunction already. I very much appreciated it for the option to go for a higher or lower charging output, though; it was super useful for when I needed to charge my GoPro. Anker just hasĀ one, but is apparently designed to adapt to your gadget’s power needs.

I like that it’s super small, though, for a 10,000 mAh powerbank. And it comes in a small pouch! šŸ˜€

Side note: I recently found outĀ how crappy a job my factory-supplied Samsung charging cable was doing. I thought charging from low battery to 100% really tookĀ 2 hours and 10 minutes. When I tried out the cable that came with the Anker powerbank, wow, low battery to 100% took 1 hour 30 minutes. What. At least now I know and have already replaced my current cable with the one that came with my tablet. But seriously. I had been wasting 40 minutes of my life all this time.

Messy Bessy

Trish gave me theseĀ for Christmas. It came in a box of three, along with a desk and workspace cleaner. I use these two more often and am super loving them! In fact, I only have 1/5 of The Little Warrior SanitizerĀ left. Huhu. The Disinfectant Aroma Spray, on the other hand, I use not to disinfect but to help put me to sleep, since it smells of lavender and peppermint. I’m thinking I should probably save these for when I’m flying again and need to spray my pillows during crew rest, or at the hotel. Yeah, I’ll go do that. I should also probs invest on their poo spray too. HAHAHA.

Another reason why I love their products:

Messy Bessy is a line of natural, biodegradable, non-toxic home and personal care products.

Our business was established in 2007 for the main purpose of providing education, employment and rehabilitation for at-risk (formerly abused, trafficked, incarcerated impoverished) young adults.

At the onset of our first college graduate in 2015, weā€™ve established the HOUSE Foundation (Helping OUrselves through Sustainable Enterprises) in an effort to scale and replicate our social innovation.

Whut. So do check them out, guys. šŸ™‚

Until the next HITs post! See ya!
