New Buddy: TicHome Mini Smart Speaker

Hey guys! I know it's been ages since the last time I posted something on this website. Been very busy with life and travels lately. I have a day job now that doesn't feel like a day job coz I only visit the office once or twice a week hihi, also I've been travelling all around the Philippines these past few months. Kinda promised to myself that I will visit every beautiful island in my country before I go out of the country. Yeah my life is pretty hectic right now but I'm not complaining tho, in fact I love it! and I feel very blessed.

If you've been following me on Instagram @michaelmacalos, you'll notice that I always have an accessory (hat, bag, shades or scarf) with me in my ootd posts. And I bet some of you might mistake it as an expensive piece or I bought it from a high end brand (wow assuming? haha). TBH most of my accessories came from SM ACCESSORIES! Yep you read that right! all of my accessories that I wore in my past ootd posts are from SM Accessories.


I'm a huge fan of SM Accessories since I was a teen (I'm only 22 guys! LOL). I love that they're making their accessories accessible to the masses, making it easier for us to buy the kind of accessory that will fit with our travels and outfit. You can even just grab and go but make sure you pay for it before you leave the store lol, that's how convenient shopping accessories at SM Accessories is.

Let me show y'all how I styled the beautiful stuff of SM Accesories with my ootds. I hope you find an inspiration or at least give you clues on how can you incorporate their stuff to your outfit and ootds.

Every accessories (hats, bags, scarves and watch) in this post are from SM Accessories. Go check them out guys! SM Accessories are located in every SM Store nationwide.

Clothing affects my confidence. It’s not like I’m unconfident without a good outfit, per se, but a killer sneakers and a suit I love can help me feel like I’m going to nail an interview or dazzle a social scene. Even if you’re not like me and don’t see a connection between your clothes and confidence, looking into how what we wear affects who we are might be important.

There is a direct correlation between what we wear and what we think of our potential. You might’ve heard the saying, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” Well if it’s confidence we seek (and don’t we all?), then why not dress the part? You can use style as one of the many tools to boost your self-confidence. So when you find yourself looking through your closet to get dressed in the morning, far from any sort of lab coats, here are some tips to help you dress for your most confident self.


The right colors can make your hair color radiant, your eyes pop, and your skin glow. The wrong colors can make you look sallow, washed out, or even tired. Resort to this guide for finding the right colors for you, or take this quiz to identify your undertones (which dictate everything from which hair colors look best on you to whether you should be wearing gold or silver jewelry).


Finding your style identity takes a lot of time and practice. It took me a year to finally know what style suits and fits me, but I suggest that base your style identity depending on your lifestyle and career. The most important secret for confidence is simply to be true to yourself and appreciate your uniqueness. This is the case for dressing as well. Instead of attempting to emulate what’s trendy or someone else’s style, know what you like, both on yourself and on other people. Finding a signature style will help you make every outfit you wear personal, so that you feel confident showing the world (or your boss or friend) who you are.


What are your favorite parts of your body? Do you love your long legs, your height, your curves? Find outfits that play up and flatter these features, and mask the features you dislike, to show off what you want people to see, and hide what you don’t.


This is the most exciting part! I want you to experiment and have fun with the clothes you wear. Own it and don't let other people dictate you by the clothes you wear. 


Inspirations are everywhere! Always look for style inspirations on Instagram, Pinterest and Magazines. Find what you like, try to copy it but add your own personal flair to it.

Although we may sometimes neglect to cultivate our own happiness, feeling happy is intrinsically important. If we are happy it has added knock on effects and benefits. These include us becoming more compassionate and feeling healthier both physically and emotionally. We become more creative, witty, energetic and fun to be around and it can also lead us to become more financially successful.

Very few of us live our lives in complete isolation. We will have partners, families, friends and work colleagues with whom we interact on a daily basis so if we’re happy, then it’s likely to mean that they’ll feel happier too. Therefore, through our own happiness, we are actually giving something to other people too and enabling them to feel happy as well.

So few weeks ago, Enervon challenged me to make the most out of everyday by joining their 14 days of Happy Challenge. I got so excited coz I've been taking Enervon multivitamins ever since. Enervon multivitamins helps me to be at my best and accomplish all the works I needed to finish ASAP and it also helps me be patient and always look at the bright side when something bad happens. 

"The main point of the challenge is to inspire your readers to be at their best and live life to the fullest every second, minute, hour and moment of their lives". 

So let me share you guys my 14 days of Happy Challenge with Enervon. You can check all the postings on my Facebook Page hihi. #MichaelMacalosxEnervon

DAY 14

In order to be happy you don’t need things to be perfect. Often times we associate happiness with perfection, even though those two things almost never go hand in hand. Just because something turns out ‘perfect’ doesn’t mean it will actually make you happy.

Happiness is not something you achieve, but something you feel by living your best life.

So get off the couch, stop feeling sorry for yourself and start living. Let everything fall into place like it is supposed to do and live your best life. You can’t control everything, so just live. 

So starting today, I challenge y'all to take control of your life, pursue your goals, live your dreams and be always passionate with the things you love. 

I really had a great time with the challenge and I know this journey with Enervon has just started. Thank you Enervon! Lets spread more happy!
