Website Winners

Spending hours online seems to be one of our favorite past times. Indeed this generation, our generation, has become one that indulges in getting our fix of information, entertainment, commerce, and self-expression over the web. Sometimes, it seems like there is so much to find online but we stick to visiting a handful of our web favorites making it feel like we are getting such a small bite out of the huge burger that is the internet. Thus, to expand your web-surfing selection, I have rounded up some cool sites and blogs that I think are worthy of at least thirty minutes of your online time. Here they are:

Online Foodporn

They call it  “a silly and rebellious food blog for creative people in the Philippines” and although that is a mouthful, it gives you a clear idea of what the site is all about. looks like a food magazine. The photos are fun and have a professional look to them, and the articles are fresh and very entertaining. The site features new food finds, some poll questions, quick and easy recipes, food hacks (recipes for their version of resto faves), and a lot of fun features that can keep any foodie busy for hours on end.  The articles and recipes are so good that any food lover would find themselves book marking every other page!

Facial Goo at Home

Today, facial is trending towards fresh and natural. And what can be fresher and more natural than facials, acne solutions, masks, and other facial care solutions that you can make right at your home from ingredients that are probably already in your pantry? Sounds cool? Yes it is. According to Homemade Beauty with Victoria on, it is your essential guide to skin care.

In the site they feature several skin care recipes that address specific skin problems like acne, dry skin, under-eye dark circles, and wrinkles. They also have posts about certain natural products and how they can help your health and appearance.

Macho Make-at-Home Menu is a website that features man-food. You know, simple comfort food that is usually grilled and served in huge portions, best enjoyed when watching a basketball game or enjoying the summer heat by the pool. That kind of food. Simple, no-frills, easy, and tasty. Here, you can choose recipes based on the main protein used on the recipe, the “man events” you plan to serve the dish during, the “man cooking tool” of your choice (slow cooker, toaster oven, deep fryer, grill),  the type of cuisine you’d like to enjoy, or the diet you intend to follow (low-carb, vegetarian, low-fat). All the recipes are very easy to follow and the site in general is very simple and streamlined; perfect for the man’s man who doesn’t appreciate froufrou or words that sound like it.

Music News on the Net

If you want to stay on top of all the latest news and gossip in the world music scene, then is definitely the site for you. Don’t let the name fool you, this site is so much more than Jon Ali’s blog; it is a sneak peak into everything music-related. The site gives you the latest news about new releases, exclusive interviews with the biggest names in the industry, plus it introduces some indie artists through interviews and album reviews. Following this blog is definitely a great idea if you want to keep your play list updated, and your noggin’ chuck full of music information.
