    WordSearchSeries#20: Masochist|| How long can you hold a grudge for?

    Happy Hump day Lovelies….. For some reason it feels like a Friday but clearly it isn’t, so let’s learn a new word because it’s Wednesday. Today on #WordSearchSeries, we found Masochist.  This word has been reoccurring in this spanish telenovela I’ve been watching (Can you tell I’m obsessed with Spanish telenovela’s? ). It is titled Los Miserables and a supposed love story where a couple keep hurting each other. In typical Phaytea Style, I looked for spoilers so I already know they finally got married. Isn’t love just beautiful? Masochist was repeated in last night’s episode and I decided to finally check the meaning. It means a person who is…

    WordSearchSeries#17: Ensconce + Impulse Buying

    Hump day and it’s been raining all through…. This is the first Wednesday in July and we start #WordSearchSeries with Ensconce. Have you heard or used the word before? I’m not sure how but I found myself reading a political article over the weekend….I guess it was a good idea because that’s how I came across today’s word and many others I’ll be sharing on #WordSearchSeries. Let’s find out what ‘Ensconce’ means: Ensconce is a verb that means to hide securely or conceal oneself. Example: Tobi ensconced himself in the room out of shame and away from public glare. It also means to establish or settle comfortable in a place. …

    WordSearchSeries #15: Caboodle + Girl/Guy Code

    Hump day means #WordSearchSeries and #WonderWednessday on the blog and we are ready. For #WordSearchSeries, the new word we found is Caboodle. I feel it sounds like the name of a really cute puppy…what do you think? Anyway, here’s what it means: The whole number or quantity of people or things in question. Any collection in its entirety. For example: She bought the whole caboodle. I have no use for the whole caboodle. Have you heard or used the word before? You should add this word to your vocabulary if you are yet to. For #WonderWednessday, i’m wondering if there should really be forbidden areas when it comes to dating. …

    WordSearchSeries #11: Amity + Parents, Kids & Finance

    Hi hi Hump day means #WordSearchSeries and #WonderWednessday on #phayteaspulse. Here’s how i found the word for this week. The other day while waiting at the reception area of a company i had an appointment in, I decided to go through a newspaper just to wile away time instead of scrolling through my phone. I had not read a newspaper in a really long time so that was a good opportunity to do so again. Every news is online so it’s amazing how the good ol’ newspaper seems irreplaceable.  I know people who cannot have coffee every morning without going through the dailies. Honestly, i was only checking out the…

    WordSearchSeries #7: Piety

    Hi hi, It’s another wednesday and that means we have a new word to share on #WordSearchSeries. Quick bant: I had the busiest day at my job earlier today.  Planned to write, edit then publish #WordSearchSeries at lunch time but that did not happen. I was only able to reply your comments on Not all wounds are visible which I totally appreciate and enjoy doing. (Please click if you haven’t read that article already). After dinner, I was about to take the couch potato position to catch up on Marido en alquiler which means Husband for Hire (its a spanish telenovela that has nothing to do with literally hiring a husband 😄😄)…

    WordSearchSeries #5: Infantile

    Hi hi…. I haven’t shared a new word since the 10th of February 2017, not because I didn’t find new words but because I’ve been super busy (not too busy to publish posts tho’, i find time) and trying to make a decision regarding when #WordSearchSeries should be published (I think that’s the main reason).  Blogging Tip: I read that it is important to have a blog schedule so I have decided to share a new word on phaytea’s pulse every Wednesday. I also realised I’ve published two posts every week since January 2017…not bad if you ask me 😉😉 Today on #WordSearchSeries, i found Infantile. About two weeks ago,…

    WordSearchSeries #1- STALL

    Today on #WordSearchSeries , I found the word Stall. I have always known and used the word ‘Stall’ as in – a tactics used to intentionally cause delay. I was not aware that Stall also has an aircraft related meaning. Here is how I found out. On this particular day, I was catching up with hubby and I mentioned it was difficult to meet up with a particular service provider because they were usually not open while heading to work in the morning and they would have closed by the time I am done with work after 1600hrs. I let him know my decision was to stall before leaving home…
