Yellow Belle

Hello month end!!!

We successfully ended today with some great laughters and simple foodgasm at the office. Tomorrow 's goin to be another day, a new beginning for all of us. And we hope that the next month will be good and favorable to us.





Ahahaha the bloated me in a plain yellow basic tee from Penshoppe and my Never been Kissed aztec print skirt in yellow blue and magenta to brighten the last day of August plus my vintage Tissot watch from Kuya Tante!!! Yep, today's actually a regular holiday and I still work! (Sabi nga...ang taong gipit sa holiday kumakapit hahaha).




Wehehe just folded my shirt up coz I am really dying to wear midriff with my skirt(s) hahaha (in my dreams). I hope I can make it into a reality before the fad will be off season already. I am actually workin so hard to shed off a bit but from time to time I get derailed from my plans ouch. I started the 30-day planking challenge  but after 5 days I started getting lazy huhuhu (blame it on typhoon ineng).


So that was it for today...


My weather forecast: gettin rid of old habits and gettin fit

Target: 120 lbs to 110 lbs... clearer and fairer skin, and maybe get my hair done soon!

See you buddies! (Sorry for the walang kwentang post) lol

Cheerleader

Good morning Sunday!

I am still laying down on my bed and thinkin of how my week went. It has always been days of craziness and yesterday was another one lol.



Blouse: generic London long sleeves, Jeans: RRJ boyfriend ripped jeans Accessory: Casio G-shock in crazy red

Ofcourse, I would not let my day end without snapping some "pabebe" photos lol. Wheeew, lookin at this pic my hair badly needs some salon blow out! Hair color no longer matches the roots... almost like an ugly ombre hahaha.




I really want to chop it off but I am so scared to venture into the unknown lol.
(Enough of my bad hair day whining)

Btw, the sweater made me feel like the highschool cheerleader lol (well that was a comment from a client at the office hahaha) oh no, my closet needs to age with me!

Ps...
I received the most ridiculous proposal ever lol...just by thinking makes me wanna throw up (ooops sorry). Just effin crazy lol

So I guess, that was how I concluded my Saturday! Gotta go buddies!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Nobody but you...

I accidentally stumbled on August Alsina's songs and I can't help but fall inlove with some of his works!  

This one particular song caught my attention... just piercing me deep!!!

Sharing some of the lyrics I am adorin'...


"I don't want nobody but you
Kissing on my tattoos
I don't want nobody but me
Talkin to you
Until you fall asleep
We better stop playing (we better stop playing)
Before we mess around and someone gets hurt
I don't want nobody but you (nobody but you)"


Enjoy listening!!! IMY #padi

One heart

Good evening!

I just finished watchin The Holiday (for the nth time) and I am about to go to bed when my musician-neighbor started to play a sweet music from the piano and I can't help but get lost on the beauty of the sound. Indeed, beautiful things are free! Yep, it inspired me to drop something and so here I am again hehehe.

My day went smoothly normal, nothin much to talk about actually yet I am still very grateful about it.




I just wanna thank God for the courage He is giving me to get through my day. I know that my battle to live is undeniably difficult but with His grace I am able to do it one step at a time.  I am so proud of myself!


Honestly, this is one of those moments when I am so helpless and I all I can do is cry.


Day like this is sometimes inevitable but so humbling...I am deeply humbled by this instance and it keeps me grounded. I continuously pray that I may let go of the hatred, guilt and pain that has been consuming me for months, not for the people who have wronged me but for my own peace of mind. It is actually tiring to linger in this kind of darkness.



You're doin well Tatin, keep it up!

My weather forecast: hang on and keep smiling girl for something great is yet to come!

I guess I need my beauty rest now... aja aja hwaiting!!!

One day at a time

Good evening ladies!

Since Ilocos has been literally out of power supply for the past few days, everyone is goin nuts! Generators and power banks are sellin like hot potatoes, free charging stations have been set up by big companies and hotels are havin their overnight promos to help the locals get through their days!

I, on the other hand need to de-stress and rest for a bit. I decided to avail one of the local hotel's promo and enjoy a day without worries!



It's actually cozy, budget friendly, super clean (parklane hotel) and comes with a complementary bfast lol. 

Hahaha selfie-ing prior dozing off! I miss the nights with actual lights lol.



I hope tomorrow, power will be restored in our area!

My weather forecast: being alone does not need to be lonely...it helps us find ourselves! I hope I will find my solitude today!



Good night ladies!

Ruggedly darling :)

Ilocos has been experiencieng heavy downpour that flooded most areas, destroyed some infrastractures and livelihoods, busted the whole province's power supply. It has caused so much inconvenience.

I on the other hand, is using my two phones' remaining battery life to pour out my sentiments in the blogosphere lol. Incase I won't be able to charge them in the next 4-5 days restoration of the power supply, I'll take the opportunity to abstain and fade away from the digital world (i hope lol).




Today, I am kind of relaxed and feeling better after the few days of being sick. But to ease my boredom, I am posting some of my office memoirs again lol.



I know you're eyebrows are raising right now hehehe. I am not really dressed properly or competently to be even in the office. Yep, it's just me when I am feelin quite sluggish. I just slip on somethin rugged and comfy.



Actually, on these days that I am lazy are also the days when I am most troubled hehehe. Talkin about the times of over thinkin, rationalizing and tryin to figure out everything...crazy. But then at the end of my every emotional chaos I always realize that it was like that - I have to suffer the consequences of my wrong doings.



Hahaha so that's how I look when I am not smiling ha... pics don't lie lol.

Anyway, thanks to the few good people whom I turn to when I am feelin low (less than 5 I guess). Your words of wisdom never failed to enlighten me!





My weather forecast: the nights are still dark and cold but I know they will pass.

Btw I borrowed this line I love at the moment, "in this world of faults, all I need are chocolates coffee and you."

Wheeewwww that made me feel better! Stay safe buddies!

Tatin, the office girl! Xoxo

Seamless Seamfull

Hello stormy night!

Ilocos weather is indeed turbulent since yesterday. Signal has been raised to number 2 and Ineng continually inflicts the city with turmoil. Stay safe fellas.

I, on the other hand, has been stayin on bed bored due to fever and body pain. So to keep me sane, I started to browse some pics of mine (not so old... taken few days back).

I was horrified to see some hahaha. I remember I always say to wear something seamless when you want to look sleek and well-put together.



After I got my cardigan off, I saw these horrible lines!!! I am actually wearin a seamless underpants but I wore some cotton-cycling shorts over it (for protection), causing those ugly "silhouttes" hahaha that showed of my unloved muffin tops arggghh.


Ahaha I am so effin embarA$$ED by just lookin at them lol! Well, I am sharin it so I can't go sashaying again lookin terribly wrong lol.

You know we don't have to be pretty-perfect but atleast we wanna look pleasing and composed right?




Hehehe black cardigan to the rescue! Another office girl's diary you have here and I hope you can help me find some alternatives with the shorts hahaha. I CAN'T go walkin here in PI without it (if you get what I mean).



Btw, I'm planning to chop off my oh-so-long hair... what do you think?

Hmmm gotta go. Till next time mwahhh! (Missin sunny weekends by d beach)

My weather forecast: like the storm that 's hitting Ilocos, I know my own mayhem will pass. Think think tatin! You are better than this!

Xoxo,
Tatin, the office girl :)

Lazy lovely

Hello ladies!!!

It's goin to be another long weekend ha? Have anything planned? As for me, I haven't thought of anything worthwhile (you know random moments are always the craziest and most loved) since Ilocos weather is raging... it's been raining cats and dogs (be safe peeps).

And today is sooo arggghhhh....waiting for the clock to strike end of business hours is pretty agonizing coz I'm feelin sore and sorta sick lol.


I have used my breaks recharging hahaha. Here is a very unflattering shot of me after my power nap.



I'm soooo lazy and I have been draggin my a$$ the whole day lol.

Thankfully I survived another productive day despite my odds.

Gotta need to doze off more! Mwahhh! Laters, baby!

Serendipity at Tribeca

Sundays are always loved and today is no exception.

I have concluded my wanderin at a place so close to my heart eversince it opened. I don't know, I always think of serendipity when I visit this place, Tribeca.

I am not even a fan of coffee but I keep coming back and have a good laugh. I really feel so at home at this locally owned shop (it is not even extraordinary...peace!).




That is basically me with my eyes twinkling with fascination while I  "gulp" down my half-warm-half-cold-light-and-weird coffee (my request and I like it that way), yep gulp and not sip hehehe.



Hahaha I am not so shy sharin my candid pics. I love lookin at the flaws and yet there is something so enchanting with my smile hahaha...please I am not being conceited it's just that I lost it for quite a while and people are glad to see it back! :)



Photo explosion moments :)

It's muggy so I decided to just go out in a high-waist khakis, black peplum-bare-back and lacy-pink sneakers!




Ahahaha sexy back toinks!

That was my day fellas! Enjoy the remaining hours of your day!

Mwahhh!

Review: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Moulin Rouge

Good morning ladies!

Red lippies are staples of many, I for one is a sucker coz you can't really go wrong with it.

And to name a few, here are some of my favorite famous personalities who share the same passion whom I really look up to...

1. Gwyneth Paltrow - "Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick."
2. Taylor Swift - "I never really get too far from red lipstick, do I? I just think my face looks worse without it. That's pretty much the only rationale behind it."

Indeed, red lippies can make you live...like a badass sassy chick. However, you need to check your skintone for the right kind of red so you will not end up like the Joker instead of Taylor, okish??? :)



And so, I'm goin to share my rave on my new baby a friend gave me. YEP, it is the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist (Moulin Rouge)!

Overview:
"The Rouge Artist Intense is a lipstick saturated with pigments for an intense result. Available in 50 shades with 3 different finishes, it will suit your everyday mood. Natural or sexy, the Rouge Artist Intense last all day and leaves your lips soft and moisturized."

Net wt. 3.5 g / 0.12 oz
Retail Price: USD 19.00

Content: (please see pic below)



Packaging: comes in a sleek, shiny black and red container that closes well. Yep, you won't worry gettin all messed up inside your bag.


As for the color, it stays true to its campaign. The shade is really vivid and very pigmented.


That is a single swatch on my hand, on a very light manner. 


And ofcourse, that's how it looks on my pout lol.  I love that it is matte and yet it does not flake my lips. It is higly creamy and moisturizing that you don't need a balm underneath to prep your lips.


As for the staying power, it can last the whole day, you'll just have to retouch a bit after brushing (lunch breaks). It does not come off actually when you eat or drink, it just fades a bit.


My thought on this? Definitely one of the best red that I have tried.
- It does not bleed
- it keeps the lips soft and moisturized (no flaking)
- it is unscented (btw which is a plus)
- it lasts long
- simply love

So till here ladies! Mwaahhhhh! Gotto go for work!

Essentially white

Good evening ladies and gents!

How did your day go? Ilocos is sorta wet in the aftie again...just the kind of mood for curlin up on bed just watchin or readin!

I just got up actually from my after-office-nap. I was a bit exhausted and I need to recharge hahaha!




Yep, it was a butt-draggin kind of dayyyy... sooooo lazy to move... (but still hurried for work)



And since, sluggish mornings are always-in-a-hurry moment, I decided to hit the office with another plain comfort cotton tee from the Bench Clothing, a form-fitting jogger pants from Penshoppe Denimlab and just hanged my ohhh-so-long-locks loose that badly deserves a blow out from my favored salon.



To complete my essential look I accessorized it with my eminem white g-shock and my only airmax90 rubber shoes from Nike (that deserves a shoe-fie lol).



I still have one dilema though before callin it a day, I haven't decided which comfortable shoes Iike loafers from Zalora to get for someone special's day. Can you help me out ladies? That would be great!

Till next time! Nightie!

Red lips!

Hello Tuesday morning!

Today's kinda murky... the clouds look heavy and I think their gonna pour down soon...

To perk up my mood a bit I settled on my darling black dress lol.



I kinda feel sultry with grace when I'm wearin it hahaha.

The skirt has been around for quite some time - trifted lol while my scoop back blouse was purchased online. I got my basic black stiletto at the Zalora shop. Hahaha lookin presentable in a budget I guess!
(please don't mind d bumps and humps lol)



Please don't get the idea of me tryin to pull off some ootd posts (awkward), I am just archiving my daily whims ok?

Btw, someone special is celebrating his birthday soon and I am really thinking of finding comfortable shoes like loafers from Zalora. He will definitely love it!

Gotta go ladies! Need some window shopping today!!! Mwahhh!

Wet and blue...

Hello Manic Monday!!!

I am not so feeling well lately two days in a row now hehehe. I think my skin has been recuperating from my last inking.



Despite my present instance, I still have to work lol (Please excuse the following shameless pics of mine).

To give my tattooed skin some air, I am wearin' somethin off-shoulder with a scooped back plain blouse (talkin bout some postcare ootd lol).



And oopss btw I just hanged my hair loose for a while... if you have noticed it's still pretty damp coz it was tied up in a bun the whole day to avoid soaking my back.  I know I should have air dried it before leaving the house but I got up late lol.

Hmmmm waaaa sorry I am blabbing nonsense again, I am JUST sooo freakin out with my peeling raw back!

gotta go! Later's baby! Mwahhhh

Inks and needles

Hello ladies!

Gratefully, it is the weekend again and that means a dope time with our love ones! Yep, I always reserve the weekends for my boy who is growin up so fast! I almost can't keep up anymore lol.

But before I finally sign off to be the mommy yaya, I just wanna share this side of me that only a few know and understand. First, I am mostly known as the goody miss office girl who loves make ups, kpop, girly and pretty stuff.

However, I grew up jamming to the likes of Guns n Roses, Metallica and Nirvana (to name a few) lol. You can now picture the influence I have when it comes to my comfort or laid back dressing style, music genre and statement.

Yep, Iam a teen at an all-girls school who sneaked out for some piercing sessions except for inking, that one thing my family had not approved until I had my independence lol.

To cut the story short, I had my latest tattoo sesh with my favored artist Kulot (owner of inkextreme studio).




While he preps, I stole a selfie!

I have been bias because I am comfortable working with him and that is a plus when you are gettin somethin permanent.

This time, we did a collab and really planned this ink since it will be for my son. Honestly, the previous two were part of my impulsiveness (no regrets though we'll have to plan for a retouching and redesign in the future).




Gettin started

Some people ask me, "Why do you mutilate your fair (lol) skin?"... Duh mutilate talaga? My answers...

1. They tell my story...the real story.
2. They satisfy my eyes and my soul.
3. They remind me of good times to be cherished, tough times that made me stronger and lessons that I will never forget.
4. They look good on my fair and flawless (just kiddin)  skin lol.




Waaaaaaa masakit sobra/permi - uber painful

Experience:
Yep this is my first almost 7 x 4 inches design at my back just half of my nape to my upper backbone! And it pretty hurt! Hahaha I had these two scripts on my left shoulder and right collar bone but they didn't hurt that much lol

Design and concept:




To give an overview, my son's name is Rex Maximus, Rex is the latin for king and Maximus is the latin for the greatest. And since I am also a fan of the movie Gladiator (2000), I was so enthralled by Maximus Decimus Merridius, commander of the Armies to the North and the General of the Felix Legions for his courage, faith and strength. That's why I chose a sword that is also a cross to symbolize the origin of his name.

His nickname is Remus [RE(x)+(maxi)MUS],  who happens to be the other Twin brother in the Roman mythology (the legend of the founding of Rome); son of the God of war, Mars with a princess; and raised by a she-wolf.

Hahaha I'm sure when he gets to be asked at school about the origin of his name, the classmates' ears will bleed!




My son was born in October, so we added stones, opal to the sword which depicts his birthstone.

To add a bit of life we decided to incorporate one of my favorite color, yellow. It is the color of life and intellect. It inspires, uplifts, illuminates, and hopes. It is the symbol of happiness and fun.




And to make it more feminine, we concluded (highlighted) it with the color of opal.

I know some are not favoring the design coz it is sooo masculine for me hehehe, I have a boy and that should be the case and I am happy about it period.

And so there goes the tale of my latest tat!

Till next time ladies!
