I don’t know about you but Valentine’s Day is a pretty big deal here in the Philippines. Wouldn’t you agree? But in countries like South Korea, this unofficial holiday actually has spin-offs! White Day is celebrated on March 14, a month after Valentine’s. It’s a day where the guys who received gifts from girls last month return the favor. Cute, right? But what if you’re single??  This is where Black Day comes in. Now what is Black Day? On April 14, single people come together to mourn celebrate their single blessedness by eating…

I love the weather we have here in the Philippines. Yes, sometimes I do wish we could experience the beauty of autumn or the coziness of winter. However, I’d still prefer our tropical weather. I love me some sunshine! But being situated near the equator, we have some really hot summers and really intense storms. At Boysen, we take these things into consideration when we formulate our paints. If you want a step up in protecting your homes or offices, use Boysen Elasti-kote. What Makes it a Premium Elastomeric Paint? Boysen…

This is the fourth and last post for our series on National Women’s Month, and it is about the colors of the archetype (personality type) Sage. I conducted an informal survey with women I know and I got many deliberate answers. At first, I categorized the answers using generations, i.e., boomers (born 1946-1964), Generation X (born 1965-1980), and Millennials (born 1981-1996). But it didn’t make sense so I decided to use archetypes instead. I found four archetypes—The Explorer, The Creator, The Nurturer, and The Sage. However, not all had longings that could…

March is National Women’s Month in the Philippines and we have written three of the four posts about the female spirit. This third post is about the colors of the Nurturer archetype (personality type). I conducted an informal survey with women I know and I got many deliberate answers. At first, I categorized the answers using generations, i.e., boomers (born 1946-1964), Generation X (born 1965-1980), and Millennials (born 1981-1996). But it didn’t make sense so I decided to use archetypes instead. I found four archetypes—The Explorer, The Creator, The Nurturer, and The…

March is National Women’s Month in the Philippines and we will be writing about the female spirit in the coming weeks to celebrate women. This first post (in a series of four) is about the colors of the Explorer archetype. I googled the question “what do women want,” and expected some wisdom from the internet. Much to my surprise, the first page answers to the search were more about what kind of men women wanted. So I conducted an informal survey with women I know and I got many deliberate answers.…

Birthstones are gems that are associated with each month of the year. In ancient civilizations, these jewels were thought to possess some sort of mystic power that would bring the bearer forms of good luck. I’m not surprised though. They all look very pretty. Why wouldn’t they bring in some good juju to the wearer? Not all of us might not have the eye (or the cash) to purchase real gemstones, though. But, we can do the next best thing and get some color inspiration from these precious gems for our…
