Monsoon or rainy season is here yet again and those dark, heavy clouds have been overshadowing most of the days.

And in case work or class gets suspended…
It’s time to have that quality sleep! Sorry dear ol’ pajamas but you would have to step aside for now as a new trend is dominating the country when it comes to comfortable sleepwear! The onesies from Snooze PH are not just relaxing to wear but they are uber cute too! Honestly speaking, it would be too hard to sleep right away after wearing the onesies because anyone would be tempted to take selfies or groufies first. So in case your work or class gets suspended, treat yourself with some fine coffee, a good movie, and a comfortable onesie.
