That’s What I Like

Annyeong! Yes, it’s quite a long time since I was able to post something here. Mianhae!~ Well, I must say I’m doing fine with my current work. What I’ve been praying for is for me to have a favorable schedule and performance all throughout. Having shifting schedule is okay, all I’m praying is a favorable one. Enough for me to still be able to bond with my cousins from abroad (who came for a couple of months long for vacay) even on weekdays.

And I must admit that I still feel gloomy most of the time, thinking that until now, the right guy still hasn’t come yet. Last month and so, the guy who I used to taught I have a special connection with, tested the waters again and thought he can still stir up something between us. Of course, I didn’t take it seriously because I know for a fact that he’s just looking for someone to play with again. I mean, grow up. When will you learn to take someone seriously? 
As to why I don’t want to grow fond of someone too much easily not unless they get to prove something. Take it from me who already experienced being the one who’s pursuing someone instead of the one being pursued. I just hope and pray that God would already lead me to that someone that will prove to me that not all guys are alike. 

Love on the Weekend

**This post was supposedly posted back in early March. Errors on the blog so it was published just now. Blunder!!**

Annyeong! Yes, I know I’ve been inactive for a month or so. Supposedly post something about Valentine’s day last February but guess what, March is about to end after a few days. Must say, I’ve been busy these past few weeks. Walked past through our training and after a week, everyone’s in shock finding ourselves in a one week upskill training for sales! 

I may not have a great experience with outbound sales back then but I know and believe that God will surely take care of me. He knows how much I value and go after growth and stability. As He said in His word, He is the God who’s faithful in fulfilling His promises to us.

With this look, I must admit I don’t dress up that much as frequent as before. It depends on my mood and I avoid being in my over dressed self like what I used to before. Opted for a double denim but still keeping everything in control.

#CliniquePOP

​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. 

Fear Not


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!

11:11

s

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 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.

All I Ask

Had earnest second thoughts of posting something like this. But I guess it’s insanely hard to keep it all to yourself. To set your expectations, this post contains my straightforward feelings so I want to say sorry in advance to y’all coz I may sound dramatic to those who cannot relate to this.

Upon graduating college last year, I had that burning desire and perseverance to find a job right away. It’s like I can’t handle seeing myself wasting time not to do anything for me to grow and flourish in a way that I’ll be a step closer to be someone I want myself to be. Having said that, I’ve been to heaps of online job applications, interviews, job fairs and whatnot. Couple of months of blood, sweat and tears after, I was able to land a job which I failed to pass the training as well as with the succeeding company I’ve been to. I must say that it’s been a very rough road for me since then. Instead of giving up and letting myself be a failure all the way, losing my job twice in just one year, I chose to trust on God’s love for me since for the record, He’s the ONLY ONE who never left my side no matter what happens.

Felt relieved and grateful when finally, I get to pass the training on the recent company I’m in right now. But sadly, I felt like no single person is happy for me. Or rather, they don’t bother asking how I was doing. My parents in specific. The people whom supposed to be insanely concerned and looking after my welfare. But since it always been like that and I felt like I can’t do anything about it, I left without a choice but to just disregard as it would open up too much negativity and insecurities.

What made all these burst out my chest is when my dad with all insensitivity told me that I’m too selfish blah blah. Even avowed it’s better for me not to have a job so I would get to stay at home all day. Not knowing how hard it is for me not to give up despite everything I went through.

All my life, I’ve been locked out with excessive restrictions. You can’t do this, you can’t do that. Now that I’m 22 and I’m working, don’t I have the right to have fun even just a bit? My mom even said if you want, you can go ahead and rent a condo. Which leads me to a decision to save money for it and gather all the courage to live independently. Imagine, hearing something like: “Will you stop crying? I’ll punch you!” straight from your dad??? Suffice to say that from this day on, I will do whatever it takes to be a better version of myself which will help me to get ready for the day that I’ll get to rent a condo and live my life the way a normal person of my age should be. Without those harsh restrictions despite my age and those remarks that makes me feel so little and incapable of attaining success someday.

Happiest

Oh hi lovely people! Massive shoutout to my fellow DG fangirls & fanboys out there. I know this might sound or look mababaw to some of you. But I’m sure solid fangirls and fanboys of David Guison would understand how hard it is to keep your chill when you unexpectedly David in person!

I’ve been a solid fan of him since I started blogging on late 2012. Believe it or not, but I’m more zany for Dave than my blogger brother. Yes, DG may be notable on the fashion industry and is inclined with menswear at its finest form you can ever see it but I don’t know – I, myself, can’t expound why I’m this crazy about David.

I would never forget the day when my brother was picked as one of the lucky bunch who’ll be dressed by DG at Market Market for Collezione C2. I even blogged about what happened that day.

** Pardon my old watermark is showing off in the picture above since I got it from my particular post last July 2013 **

And back in 2014, he already have his blog’s own mobile app! And he also been nominated for various awards and won numerous of it. What I love about DG is even how far he has become now, he still sustained his humility and perpetuated to keep his feet on the ground. So here’s some of David’s stellar pictures throughout the years. Look how cute he is! πŸ˜›

Here’s to more years of fangirling and endlessly supporting DG! I may not able to go with my fellow followers, bonding with David on some of the events of his life and I may not be Vina G (*winks*) but one thing’s for sure. I’m one of the most solid fangirl of DG that will stay by his side as long as I live. Cheesy!

That’s why even if I’m in my most haggard state yesterday after working hours,(even if I’m not prepared, my eyebrows is not even on fleek, for crying out loud!) Β I gathered all the courage in the world and still followed him from 1st floor up to the other side of 2nd floor. And not to mention that I felt like he’s in a hurry that time since he’s walking so fast like cray cray. Hahaha! I really didn’t expect that I would get to see David that time in view of the fact that he’s in Glorietta at 2pm yesterday. I’m really the happiest yesterday, indeed!

Looking forward for the next one! (very soon, hopefully!)

 

Backtrack

comeback

I get the feeling that some people think that being fashionable is some kind of gene mutuation – and it’s either you have it or you don’t, as if the talent for pairing flared trousers with platform heels and a peasant style, pussy-bow blouse is inborn. I perceive fashion from a different point of view, I seized upon a fitting metaphor: fashion is a language.

If so, then that means people will speak it with different degrees of fluency. Some of us are fluent than others that’s why they don’t just follow trends, they make ’em. Some of us do follow trends but make sure to rock it in a way that others can’t. So if you’ve always wanted to play fashion, you should fathom that it’s something that can be learned, something you can excel at if you put in the requisite time and effort.

With that, as 2016 approaches, I decided to post all those looks I didn’t have the ample time to convene in the blog last year. Pardon, the working girl, eh? And I must say, I used my black skater skirt and knee high socks way too much last year. Well of course, take note of the black hair I used to have before! The marks of backlogs? Oops, my bad! πŸ˜›

I think I still have few backlogs left on the pc so I guess I’ll just follow those up in between blog posts, yes?

Spoilers, anyone? For one of the two look posts that I will post next week is actually a backlog, as well. It’s back in the days when I haven’t put red streaks on my hair. (although it’s not much of a striking one, but I’m planning to soon!) Stay tuned, lovelies!

Poison

Oh hi! It’s been a while since I had all the time in the world wherein I could like roll around social media and do anything I want under the sun. I’m err.. a bit complaining. But just wholeheartedly though, since the reason behind it was my working schedule which is predominantly opposing to my normal body clock. And I’m still pretty much in the adjusting period so please bear with me.

As much as I want to be like the unstoppable and brave girl I want to be in order for me to like excel on everything I do which will be the bridge for me, going after what I wanna be in the future, well.. there was this huge wall hindering me. I know I have to like mature, move forward and shrug off all the insecurities that the past had caused me. But there are things that tend to make me feel so little of myself. Sometimes I can’t decipher what was happening to me, really.

One of those is the (I’m not sure if I’m being selfless or stupid) fact that I tend to forgive those people who actually leave me behind like a toy he’s already sick of and thus, finds another one to play with. I know this is like so 2013! And deja vu even came into the picture. I just had my biggest heartbreak then came another one who just throw everything behind. I’m honestly sick of this disposition I’m in. What makes things worst is the fact that I feel like I’m always either the riff-off version of someone or the under rated in a certain group I’m with.

I always force myself to believe in myself and I swear, I really want to leave everything that belongs to the past, seriously. What’s hard is when deja vu kicks in and you kept on meeting people of the same kind you met in the past. Or worst, // than before! That’s why whenever mind and heart wants to take their dispute into the boxing ring, even how hard it is, don’t go where your heart is pulling you but you know deep inside you that it will sooner or later, hurt you in the long run. Go to the path where you think it’s right for you to be in.

Don’t commit the same mistake. That’s what the past 2 years have taught me to keep in mind. And maybe, we just have to accept that some people are just not meant to be with you even how much you love them to the point of holding on to your promise to each other that you will always have each other when everything’s gone and that you will be better together. My gosh, Dig by Incubus, please stop playing on and on into my head! 😦

To keep things clean, I opted to wear basic but of course, to keep things not too mundane, I incorporated my DIY denim detachable collar into my outfit for the day. In time for the this season’s fixation for denim!

Hype this on Lookbook.nu!
