Just Turned 21
Dress & Belt - St. Francis Square; Shoes - So! Fab
I wore this cutesy striped dress and paired it with a red belt last Saturday for a date with Le Boyfriend as we celebrate (in advance) my 21st Birthday! ♥ I’ve been attracted to stripes these days thinking that it suits my personality and style but I guess it’s more of its being trendy and an all-time favorite. The shoes!? I’ve been wanting and dreaming to wear this exact pair of shoes ever since I started working so you can’t imagine how happy I was when I saw it. Ahhh! Black and Gold is a statement for being classy! Agree?!
Turning 21 makes me feel a bit worried of aging but I’m happy growing this “old”. I remember during my freshman year in the university, taking my first speech course ever, the question thrown at me for an impromptu speech was, “If you’re going to be flashforwarded to the future, at what age would you like to see yourself and why?” Guess what I answered… 21! ♥ I could recall I said that I’d like to see what’s gonna be my career and the playful thought and desire of skipping the hardships in college. HAHAHA! But now that I’m finally 21, I wanna go back to being a freshman. Chos! Kidding. I’m happy!
So many changes transpired now that I’m on my 20s. The fact that I already finished college and have recently landed a job happened so fast! I went through this difficult transition slash realization stage from thinking I’m still a student to being professional. Ugh, it’s hard to accept I can’t enjoy having allowance anymore! Hahaha! I understand that lots of adjustment is what my age tells me to do. Taking on new responsibilities and roles both at work and with my family is something I am truly grateful and honored to be capable of. I thank God for giving me all that I have right now. My family, my love, my job, my old & new friends. I can say my life is complete.
Sharing you this happy and funny picture of mine. Hope it’ll put a beautiful curve on your face —smile. ;)
A Blissful Dream
I dreamed that I got a box full of animals and that I painted them myself. I made them all very colorful! I painted the rabbit pink with blue horizontal stripes on its sides, the horse blue, the monkey brown with yellow stripes and I even made my own rainbow-colored animal!
Only to know that I must keep all of them inside my house without returning them back to that magic box… including the SNAKE, the LION, and the ELEPHANT! Ooh! What a beautiful nightmare it turned into! Big, colorful and wild animals inside our house! O.O
Girl on Fire
Dress - Tomato; Flats - St. Francis Square store; Necklace - Ai fashion
This is what I wore to our clan’s summer outing yesterday as a Mother’s Day special. This is actually my first aztec fashion find and I hope it’s never too late for me to post this! Hahaha! I instantly fell in love with this dress when I first saw it hanging inside a store. Apparently, it’s not just the typical high-and-low cut dress but it has its curvy hemline that ultimately breaks from tradition and the layering of colors is just so perfect! I felt like I was Katniss, the girl on fire, when I had this dress on. Hahaha! I was also sure that I’m far from tripping while modeling this dress around the resort. Hahaha! Thanks to this dress’s flowy high-low cut! ❤
I hope you’re all having a great summer! :)
A Taste of Luscious Bites
These were the heavenly cupcakes I won as a giveaway prize from Ms. Charlene Ajose's blog - Luscious Bites cupcakes! Luscious Bites is a brand new food business that offers yummy chocolate and fruit-flavored cupcakes that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth! That’s why I felt so lucky to have won these pretty and deliciously-baked cupcakes! Not just that, in claiming my prize, I also had the chance to meet and greet Ms. Charlene Ajose and the owners of Luscious Bites last Wednesday at the Gateway Mall in Cubao! ❤
With Ms. Charlene Ajose, fashion/personal blogger
With Ms. Razel, Luscious Bites owner (She’s also the one who bakes the cupcakes!)
With Ms. Charlene Ajose, Ms. Razel and the 2 other winners
Outfit shot! I wore my favorite color that day to double my happiness! Hahahaha! I hope you liked this post! ;)
Today I write and wait
For things I long to see
Blurry dreams becoming real
What is there? I am, I think.
I may not be the one but I will be
For luck is not felt out of thin air
Giving up is easy not until today;
To living and making, I write and wait.
My eyes hurt when I remember that night… your back at me, not glancing even once, walking furiously. Hoping, I was, but my heart just burned. I was falling… breaking. You were mine but… that moment, I saw the world turned upside down.
The sunflowers finally bloomed for the UP graduates on April 27, 2013! I’m very proud to be a Sunflower Lady! Oh yes, that’s right! I’m done with my Bachelor’s Degree! Thank you, UP! ❤ *sunflower dance*
Because it’s my college graduation day, I wore a VERY BIG smile and a dress that says “Artista ng Bayan” (because I’m from the College of Arts and Letters)! ❤
…and shoes that scream ”Go for the gold!” Hahaha!
Graduating from college is surely one of the most memorable life events that would ever happen to anyone. Finishing a college degree from a premier university like the University of the Philippines has been given to a very few people. This is why I feel privileged to have been educated in this university. Now that I’m an alumna, the pressure is ON in finding success through the tight competition beyond UP. But I know that change is the only permanent thing in this world so my gear is up and I am ready to face the next stage of my journey. Cheers to all 2013 graduates! ❤
Before I end this post, here are some of the very important people I am grateful for. Because without them, I couldn’t have done all of these.
My parents, who’ve been there as long as I could remember. They’re the real achievers. I love them so much! ❤
My two beautiful elder sisters, they’re the ones who believed that I can do even better than they did in college. ❤
My competitive college friends/classmates/batchmates/orgmates, without them, I wouldn’t have done the best that I’ve got in every course we took.
To this man, for being there… almost ALL the time. ❤
So long, UP College of Arts and Letters! Kudos!
