Bad day and a blue sky...

Hello ladies!

Please excuse my mood but I'm sort of whiny today... Ouch!

First, I had a heated situation with someone which lasted the whole day. Yep, talkin about gettin pissed off so early in the morning after I just enjoyed a hot coffee and my favorite pancakes at Mcdonald's.

Second, the city experienced an announced power interruption but our  generator kept on backing down. So you can just imagine how extremely scorching inside (no ventillation). Wheeew it was so uncomfortable and very hazardous to the health.

The good side though, I always try to make the best out of the bad circumstance...selfie therapy baebehhh lol!!!

I think the beauty balm I used endured the office temperature. I am really pleased (I think I'm back to product reviewing soon)!

More selfies! Lol

And a wacky one lol!

Third, since I had a bad day, I wanted to treat myself and enjoy a "cozy" dinner at home.

I ended more stressed I guess... Feeling more sheepish for myself.  I really hate the feeling of being warmed-over, like a hand-me-down bag or a pre-loved car.

It was such a bad day... Just have to sleep it off again and call it a day.

Hugs and kisses for me please... :(

To the girl who got left behind...

I know you've been losing sleep for days, or weeks, or maybe even months now. You've been drowning your pillow with your precious tears. You've probably been having those nightmares, and sometimes, you've probably woken up in the middle of the night just to find yourself crying again.

Your life has changed. A lot. You're not as happy as you were before. You're not in the mood to interact with anyone. You're not living life the way you should.

You keep on blaming yourself. Why? Why has this happened to me? Why me? Where did I go wrong? Was I not enough? Will this ever end?

I understand.

I've been there before, too. I was the girl who always got left behind. The option. The second choice. The rebound. The one who's "not good enough." The one who's "just a friend." I just wanted to be loved, but it never worked out. I even had to lose two of the most amazing friends in the world.

And then I met Him.

You will, too. I can assure you.

After all of those sleepless nights, the pain and misery, I didn't regret a second of it. Why? Because if it weren't for those guys who broke my heart, my life would've been different. I know better now. Because of them, I learned to love myself. You should learn that, too. To be loved, you have to learn to love yourself first.

Why did this happen? Because the world might be a cruel place, darling, but there's so much to learn. Why you? Because God wants you to be strong, to be ready for what's to come, for something greater coming. Where did you go wrong? You gave away love and trust and respect too much, you forgot to save some for yourself. Were you not enough? Yes, you've always been enough, honey, but they couldn't see it. They weren't the ones who should. Will this end? Yes, I promise you. It will.

You're a woman in the making. You are not perfect. Not yet, but you will be. Life's too short to grieve for the things that aren't worthy of your tears. God is watching you right now. You are His daughter, His princess. Jesus didn't die just so you could cry over some guys who used you and left you. You are far more than that.

You were born for greater things. You deserve more. You have no idea how much God has planned for you. So right now, he wants you to empty your heart of any negativity so that you may receive His blessings. Let go now. And never forget to trust, respect, and love yourself.

Smiles and vibes

Hello almost month end!

After my days of whirlwind emotions, I am back to my smiley self again.

"Arte fat face" super like it hahaha.

Actually, Ilocos had been wet for the previous days and it's only today that the sky is lucid.  So I decided to wear something sexy (I think)... bodycon dress with a midriff mesh to give the illusion of a crop top and hip hugging knee length skirt. And to tone it down a bit, I opted to wear Converse dupe I got at the Penshoppe plus a plain black cardigan (so it has still the corporate vibe lol).

What do you think?

Yep I know I am healthy -- chunky and curvy.

Now that is one unflattering shot lol!

Laters baby!!! Vibes me :)

Have a happy day peeps!

Just when I thought...

Just a thought from this half happy half sad heart...

I had been a fan of this chic novel few years back.

And I had been anticipating for the film to come out .

But then last night, I had the chance to see it again. Maybe valentine came a little bit late for me.

And so I thought if I can just laugh (for a while) like Anna at that gliding scene from the movie and daze, tryin to cover up how it felt when I first saw it with a friend at the movie house.

Looking back I just sat still and numb, not understanding most part of the film lol while everyone got so frenzied with excitement and I cried the whole time with pain (stupid me lol).

The past is indeed heart-rending but it allows us to see things clearly now especially when things have been said and done. You know people has to continue living...

Haiiissst talking nonsense again, laters baby!!! Mwah.

Yellows and memories...

Good morning!

I am quite sulky today...thanks to timehop and facebook memories lol.  Memories, no matter how much you try to erase the not-so-good traces, they will always affect you in many ways (yeah right).

Exactly one year ago, I dropped by the very serene beach of Badoc with friends. It is the location of the breath-taking Shrine of Virgen La Milagrosa.

Grabbed these photos at the "flashback feature of facebook".

The place is sooo heart-warming and calming...I can still remember how sad and broken I was at that time. losing myself and the people I love...

On that year (same date)... My best braddie even sent me a beautiful message which goes like this... "The power in all relationships lies with whoever cares less." And he was indeed right! And I replied, "the one who cares more is doin somethin selfless and beautiful." But you see, at the end of the day it is as simple as one who is takin advantage and one who has been taken advantage of (sad reality).

The best thing though is how those cute little flowers had cheered me up. They taught me to stay still and stay grounded despite the heartache!

Well, it is good to look back and feel how much you've grown over the months! It makes you appreciate how well life is treating you at present and how great yourself is becoming with the lessons you learned!

Till here! Mwah!

Lazy day Saturday...

Some people ask why I keep this account updated with empirical raves. This blog or should I say my journal was actually created as my stress reliever many years back. Mmmmm just wanna archive how life has been and so far it is so good.

Yep, it's the weekend and yep I worked! This is how I look on lazy days lol. Meet my clutter-full space at the office.

Shhhh I am wearin' super comfy faded old jeans and a basic white tee with my super pink converse all star sneakers (super / major major not allowed) lol. My company is a bit conservative when it comes to our dress code and I go against it once in a while oopps.

Oh well... There goes my day! Nothing really special but yes I survived smiling again. Well done my loves!

Till here... I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the weekend! Mwahhhh!

She is made up of words that not anyone can understand;

Her mind is a dictionary of sadness and heartache,
And her heart is a poetry book for the hopeless.

She is the prettiest song,
The perfect sonnet,

The most meaningful haiku,
And the longest novel.

It takes a while to read her
Seconds to love her
And a lifetime to forget her...

Back to back!

Hello Wednesday!!!

Nothing much for today except that I'm happy with the results I am gettin' from my regular zumba classes!

I'm still BIG for my height (5'4") at 120lbs to date. It used to be 135lbs!!!  And yes jeans size dropped from 29 to 27 inches! Yahoo!!!

So I guess, my efforts these previous months paid off! 

Laters baby, mwahhh!

Scars and blues!

Hello windy Sunday!

I just wanna share a pic of my scar of life and love... Yes my c-section mark.  Hehehe... Joining other women who flaunt the flaws of giving birth!

My beautiful mark!

In this pic is something NEW: a taste-full tee (Justice) from my mom, something OLD: my vintage corduroy shorts, something BLUE: my baby tee and something BORROWED: my New Era Cap 59FIFTY San Francisco Giants

Till next time baby!!! Mwahhhh

Good morning!

A while ago, I read a quote from Paolo Coelho and it goes like this...

"Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere.'

I realized how easy for some to just throw away something...or someone dear to them, I guess for the love of fortune or maybe for some other reason they keep.

And as I keep lookin' at my pictures...I realized things, I was created not to be abused or used but to be loved!

I may not be the prettiest but I am beautiful and I deserve the best.

And so today... I am closing the door that leads me nowhere.

DIY: Sneakers' Color and Look Restoration

Have you ever loved something that it pains you so much to let it go?  Well, I have this red sneakers I got from Cotton On few years back. It's so worn out that color already faded and rubber parts already fell off.  Nope, it's not pricy, it's just that we've had too memories together!

The pic was taken 107 weeks ago when I first got it in Cotton On SM MOA branch! Indeed time flies that fast.

So to start... Here is my first diy restoration to bring back its glory!

Material is made of canvas therefore numerous usage and cleaning had washed out its color.

As seen on the pictures; color has faded and material has slacked off.

You need a Tulcraft Acrylic Arts & Craft Paint.  It's so easy to work with since it's water-based, pure acrylic paint, versatile and non-toxic.

This can be used on paper, canvas, cardboard, styrofoam, resins, rubber, clay, wood and other surfaces for temporary or permanent application.

Just stir it well and apply it in light strokes using a brush onto desired surface.  If you want extra vibrant effect, you may apply additional coats to get the desired color.

Avoid direct sunlight when dryin it out.  Just air dry it for 15 to 20 minutes or longer.

For a more hip and newer look, you may change the shoe lace!  I got these variants for only PhP40.00 each.

It may not look perfect but atleast it look prettier now lol. The after-effect!!! Not bad for my first ha? :)

Till here ladies!  Mwahhhh

I do not love you except because I love you.

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire. 

I love you only because it's you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
my heart with its cruel ray, stealing my key to true calm. 

In this part of the story I am the one who
dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you, because I love you, love, in fire and blood.

Hopes and Songs...

Mature (성숙)
Sang by Hwang Bo

The words that I want to say to you now,
Could be a little embarrassing,
Since I usually just joke around with you,
Please try to understand and listen.

Actually I thought that I was not yet qualified to love,
When I first met you, I had no confidence,
And I had worries such as that.

As time passes,
The time we spent together,
I've gotten used to these precious moments,
You're always by my side looking at me,
I'll be thankful for your trust and love.

Now I'll mature, when you're watching me,
The scent of love that won't change,
I'll mature even more when I look at you,
With a trusting gaze that won't change,
Now I'll begin changing first.

Words like I love you and I like you,
Words that I couldn't say and were awkward.
I tried to make it light like a joke,
Did I do wrong, your heart hurt right?

As time passes,
And the world changes,
It seems that I've matured very little,
Now that you're protecting me by my side,

When I need your love and trust.
Now I'll mature, when you're watching me,
The scent of love that won't change,
I'll mature even more when I look at you,
With a trusting gaze that won't change.
Now I'll begin changing first.
Now I'll begin loving first.

Hello Wednesday!!!

It's still rainy here in Ilocos and I am so lovin' every bit of it.

Well, I actually got nothin' much to say tonight except that I wanna share somethin' I'm not really used to, wearin' kicks!  I have always been the girly-next-door-type in pretty dresses and dolly shoes... So here is a glimpse of me in dri-fit and kicks lol - at the office!

Please excuse my uber extra weight... I am not so particular with my calorie intake but I do attend zumba classes regularly hahaha. It may not show but yes I am a certified addict!

Details: nike airmax90 2015 spring collection, gshock eminem series, butt hugging jeans from bench.

Purple or anythin violet is really not my thing... But I don't know I always end up gettin things that I hate!

So that's it for tonight! Gym clothes are the new fashion statement lol.
