Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

48 Photos : Week 1 Sultry Self-Portrait


48 photos for the whole year sounds fun and I must say a great challenge for me as well. This year I have committed a challenge and joined 48 photos Kim of Mom On Duty and Camille of Lollies And Lipsticks Challenge. I am not good in taking photos for one, I don’t know technical terms with regards to SLRs and I can only take photos if someone (Boboy) sets the right mode for me, other than that no more! He has been teaching me how to use manual mode all the time but I keep forgetting it too!

For the self – portrait, ever since I thought of having a solitude concept but when I became a mom, I was already lost in the modeling world.  Today’s portrait is a mixture of sultry and solitude concept. But because my kind of idea was so hard to pull off alone, I had to ask for a back up. We set up our room and placed a dark backdrop with improvised LED lights to serve as a catch light. I am not good in lighting as well I only know well the feeling of posing in front of cameras and seeing too many halos from the lights that surrounds me. For my make up, I made a smokey eye and nude lipstick for my sultry look.

Here is my sultry and solitude portrait.

Photo taken with Nikon D7000 and 85mm lens.
It was also PP due to some unnecessary shadows on my face.



Here is the list of the concepts for the 48 photos challenge.


Let me know what you think and I will see you again in the next photo on Friday!
