Hello there, lovelies! How are you guys doing? Have you started the year 2017 right or at least the way you expected yourself to? Well, as for me, I just came to a mind boggling situation on which of the two job opportunities that God has blessed will I engage myself into and I think and I’m praying I’ve made the right decision.
As I went to come about my first week in my new job, I had the wonderful privilege to be dolled up by one of the most notable makeup brand in the Philippines, Clinique. It was actually unplanned and it just so happened that my new friend in the office, Joey, passed by, someone approached us and that’s when all the magic started to shine forth!
We were glamed up for free and was given makeup tips and a voucher which we can present at their store that will give us a quickie skin care sesh. They also have a special offer where you just have to purchase at least P2,500 and you would get a free lip kit which I’m excessively zany of! What I love on the whole experience was when I got to see and swatch over their enchanting set of #CliniquePOP lippies where I found the perfect lippie for my skin tone, Ruby Pop!
I suggest you guys come & witness the magic at Mega Fashion Hall near H&M until January 15, tomorrow.
Oh hello busy bees! I’m pretty sure everyone is preoccupied with what happened in the last day of the year 2016 yesterday which most probably consists of preparing ourselves with media noche and pondering over our New Year’s resolution/s. So I decided to shed light on my cozy sweater weather mood by bringing out one of my lil’ bulky but comfy sweater and dance my way to comfort by pairing it with my denim shorts and trustee Nike Airforce 1 kicks. With regard to new year shenanigans, rather than a resolution, what I have is goals for 2017.
1. Constantly prayed that I would be able to be employed before 2016 ends. After months of going on job fairs, applying online and etc, I was blessed to have one. Since I admit that I didn’t able to give my 100% best on my previous one, I promised God that I will give my utmost effort to do better this time with His grace and mercy, I believe I can do it.
2. Funny and cliche as it seem but I aspire to lose weight on 2017 by resisting the temptation of going zany over food most of the time and eating just a half cup of rice for the whole day. Not sure if I’ll go to the gym once or twice a week or I’ll just buy treadmill or elliptical bike and use it indoors. I love food but if I won’t do this now, when?
3. Went through a lot this year and it made me realize how much I need God in my life and how it pays to have a closer relationship with Him. So I’m aiming to be able to attend the Wired service in our church which is for professionals that I should have attended before. I’m also praying that God would lead me to the rightful ministry that He intends me to be in and be able to grow and be active there.
4. I have various things that I need to save money for. I admit I tend to be impulsive at times. And this coming 2017, I need to discipline myself not to be blinded in dwelling on too much luxuries but instead,keep in mind the things I’m ought to save for.
Overall, I’m hoping and been praying that 2017 will be a year of growth for me – career, spiritual, personal etc. May God give us the enough wisdom, strength, courage, motivation and favor for us to reach our goals in 2017. Fear not! – He is the Lord of all miracles, of hope and of peace. He is our superhero!
Annyeong! It’s the last month of the year and few days from now, we’re gonna have the privilege to celebrate our Savior’s birth. And I just realized that it really pays to have a close and intimate relationship with God.
I’ve been praying a million times everyday for me to have a job again and promised God, this time I will give my 100% best and I’m constantly praying that I would receive it before 2016 ends. By His unchanging grace, I was blessed by a new one last Thursday and a couple of days ago, I already got hired officially.
In relation to the title of this post, it came to my thought in the past few weeks something about not rushing things when it comes to finding the right person you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with, which I didn’t decipher way back. I used to question God why am I used to be always the one without a partner in my group of friends back in college.
Recently, I convened the reality that you don’t just pour your entirety on whoever comes along just because you’ve been waiting for it to happen. Don’t settle for whoever comes along your way like 11:11 which some people wait each day believing if they mutter their wish on that time, it will happen.You really have to wait for the right person to come along. Someone who’s worth all your entirety and would love you beyond your imperfections.
Hello lovelies! Apparently, my birth month is about to come to an end. I’m excited to celebrate the birthday of our Savior but I want the days not to come too quickly yet. Why? As some of you read my previous blog post, I’m currently looking for a job as of this moment and it’s been a couple of months since I started doing so.
As I seek God’s will, I’m constantly praying for me to be finally hired before this year 2016 ends. I know I’m still young so for sure there would be lots of opportunities heading my way. But then, I want to start 2017 right, being able to finally have a job where I can start anew. For me to be able to already start growing (and enjoying at the same time) and be able to make things right. I know God knows my heart and He knows how much I want to finally be hired already so suffice to say that He will make a way for me to get through this and be able to move forward in life. I believe that He’s preparing to something better for He can turn any situation into a blessing.
Anyhow, as for today’s look, it’s evident in the header photo that this is a backlog. And when I say backlog, this look is taken more than a year ago. Talk about backtrack, eh? This is one of the looks that I used to plan of not posting anymore but change of heart took place, I must say. This particular look is one of those days where I’m not in the mood to wear something too eye catching. Laidback self took over but I made sure it’s not too mundane as well. Just being me, I guess.
Good day everyone! How formal can I get? Hahahaha! Anyway, I’m currently celebrating my 23rd year of existence. I must say that I’ve learned a lot of things this year. I made a lot of wrong decisions this year and I also realized a lot of things that happened because of my negligence in the past.
I may not be perfect but I’m constantly praying for God to guide me in every decision I’ll make in the coming days. I’m also praying that as I exert a lot of effort in applying/looking for a job, I would be able to finally get a job at least before the year 2016 ends. And I pray and believe that as I give my 100% best this time, I’ll be able to already grow consistently and gain new knowledge and experience along the way.
For today’s look, since I just turned 23 today (Omg, talk about adult-ing!), I decided to post what I wore on my cousin’s wedding last month at Fernwood Gardens with my family and my grandpa. As some of you might noticed, my usual color palette ranges from muted colors to pastel ones. This time, I opted to wear a white lace dress and black heels on that day. Not too over the top since I’m not one of the sponsors nor one of the special guests or whatnot. I also included some random photos that I adore during the said wedding.
And for some flair, I decided to come up with a street-ish boyish version of the look. I borrowed my brother’s jacket to conceal and salt away your attention to the factual size of my waist and convene a different feel on the overall look together with my “boy meets girl” cap I recently bought. Here it is!
Hi there lovelies! Before October bids goodbye, here I am, almost not posting anything again in le blog. Sorry, I’m currently looking for a job at the moment and I must say, I’m in the process of finding myself. Looking for that thing where I would do best. Most of us tend to take things for granted then have regrets of not taking something seriously later on.
I, myself have recently done that. That’s why I promised God and myself that I would make sure not to let any blessing come to waste again. I’ve been looking for a job this whole month of October but it felt like it’s been a couple of months! It’s a fine line between me, not being a homebody and me, aspiring to be somebody someday. I may not know yet what in specific I would do best. But one thing’s for sure: God have everything taken care of – He is the God of all miracles!
Few months ago, we went to Century City Mall to satisfy our tummies in Hole in the Wall but since we went there too early with our hungry tummies, the said food place is still closed (and since we still have other errands to attend to afterwards) so we decided to head over Le Petit Souffle which I must say is one of the most dreamy place I’ve ever been – not to mention their food is stellar. Try their Mac & Cheese!
Here’s the complete set of what we ate at Le Petit Souffle:
For this particular look, I must say it’s a lovechild of my obsession for florals and the color black! Keeping things muted and not too bright in the eyes.
Annyeong! I know in my recent post (not so recent, sorry.), it was stated there that I already came back from an unplanned hiatus. I even posted a photo titled “Welcome back” last August and posted a couple of posts but after that, I wasn’t able post something again. Let’s say I’m going through something and I’m letting God work in my life right now, trusting Him that He will make things right in my life as I exert in doing so as well.
Anyway, with today’s look, when my brother brought his oversized black coat for our photoshoot (felt like Ms. Detective with the said piece, eh?), my eyes went zany and incorporated it with my grey kitty dress and went on with my kpop fangirl self by wearing my white knee high socks with my black wedge for that street look with kpop flavor on it. Sometimes, dressing up is all about mix and matching your statement pieces and basing it whatever floats your boat on that day, right?
Hello there! Here I am keeping up with the unplanned hiatus that was concluded just a week ago. And these days, I can say that for some substantial reason, I feel like I have too many dreams in life.
Having said that, I convened with a question: Is it okay to have too many goals in life? Ang dame kong gustong malearn and ipursue! I don’t why. I know I have to trust God’s plan in my life that I don’t suppose to get my life figured out yet since I’m just 22 years old but..but.. I really sincerely seriously don’t know!
Maybe I just want to make sure I won’t end up as a person who just stays at home all day everyday without goals at all in life or aspirations in order for him/her to be a better version of himself/herself. Yes, I think that’s it. As of now, I’m planning to take up Fashion Marketing/Merchandising at SoFA Design Institute or Fashion Institute of the Philippines next year and if time allows me to do so, I want to take either drum and/or voice lessons at Center for Pop OR wake up my former skills in dancing at ACTS with my own money, of course.
Hello lovely earthlings! Recently went back to the office from a two-weeks leave due to health reasons. I’ve been taking medications like what I’ve disclosed on my recent blog post and I also went back to my doctor a couple of times (latest was yesterday) and I just opt to rake off 3 valuable lessons that he told me to bear in mind that everyone else can do so as well.
1. Never compare yourself to people – especially to someone who’s lacking same as what you do. To those you look up to, you can use them as an inspiration to do better.
2.Don’t set your hopes too high and expect yourself to reach your goals right away. Great things take time.
3. Don’t dwell on the past anymore because it will just hinder you from growing and it won’t take you anywhere.
And for today’s look, to cinch that waist of mine that went bigger as my love for food grew bigger as well, I opt to wear a long outerwear to look slim paired with denim shorts to achieve the denim on denim trend which I’m fond of nowadays.
Annyeong! My deep apologies for being in a unintentional hiatus for the past few months. I must say I’ve been very depressed nowadays. Well if some of you has already read or follow the streaks of blog posts I had for the past 3 years, you would know I’ve been with this formidable condition. Which is why I decided to go on a hiatus because rather than elucidating my rigorous condition, I chose to remain silent and curbed. I’m currently looking for getting myself diagnosed by a psychiatrist or whatnot. I felt like it’s already being reflected on my work in the office. I guess this is what you get from disregarding the fact that I need to consult a doctor way back just because my mom said it’s all in the head although I know that she doesn’t have a concrete idea on what I’ve been through/going through.
After a few years of keeping it to myself, I decided to let it out and thus, I already told them everything. That’s when I started to take medications. Moving forward, I don’t want to let anything and anyone hinder my growth and go out and pursue my dreams. No way, honey!
I’m planning to take either fashion styling or a makeup course next year since I know for a fact that even if I’ve been in the blogging industry for quite some time but I’m still up for huge improvement.
