“Sometimes we lose hope in turning to God and asking for His help because we feel like we have done too much wrong. And yet think of a child who has just angered his mother and immediately after trips and falls on the stairs. Even if that child had just angered his mother to tears, the moment he falls and cries for help, she runs to him. This is human mercy. And God is infinitely more merciful than a mother is to her child. So, do you think—no matter what you’ve done—when you’re falling and cry out to the *most* merciful…He wouldn’t come save you?”—Yasmin Mogahed (via ilm-seeker)
Since when did labels become important? Ugh, i hate society. “bakit kayo naghoholding hands e hindi pa naman kayo?” fudge. seryoso? kung kailangan lang pala maging magboyfriend and girlfriend ang dalawang tao para legit na sila magholding hands edi super babaw lang pala ng ibig sabihin ng boyfriend and girlfriend. naniniwala ako na boyfirend-girlfriend relationships (BGR) are beyond physical intimacy (except sex ha, for me lang naman). People even casually have sex with others that they don’t even love. And di’ba yun dapat yung nagmamatter? love. if you love a person, edi love mo siya. kailangan mo pa bang lagyan ng label para lang maexpress mo yung love mo for him. though to put balance on it, hindi naman porket love mo yung isang tao, gagawin mo na lahat for him or her, you still have to respect yourself.
sad life. bad things happen when you’re doing your thesis.
"God said that the reason some people have turned against and walked away from you without reason has nothing to do with you. It is because He has removed them from your life because they can’t go where he’s taking you next. They will only hinder you in your next level because they’ve already served their purpose in your life. Let them go and keep moving. Greater is coming.”
I cannot sleep. That one subject I failed still haunts me everyday. I cannot even log in to systemone because I dont want to see my grade in another subject. I am so disappointed with myself. This is the first time in my 19 years of existence that I lost confidence with myself.
But the most disappointing thing ever is how my heart reacted to this. Why do I feel this? God is always asking me, am I never enough for you? Almost a month has passed since I asked God, why did you let this happen?
This is a struggle. The enemy whispers the what ifs and the could haves. It is sad that I listen to them instead of listening to what the Father says to me, my Father who has proven to me for so many times how faithful and true He is.
I declare today that I would trust God with everything. If this did not happen, maybe I’m still a hypocrite who lies to herself that I have lifted everything to God.
Lord God, I trust You will all my heart. I really do not see Your reason for this. But I know that You can see the bigger picture. I declare that for the last two sems of my college lives, you would fulfill your promises to me. I lift to you all the burdens and heartaches that would not let me get to sleep. I declare that your love is truly enough. In Jesus’s Name. Amen
My housemates and I had a little photo shoot before parting ways during the Christmas season. Here is what I wore. It was super pretty in LB. I hope that they did not bring down the Christmas vibes. Wouldn’t be that the world will be a better place if it’s Christmas everyday??
Here is one of my housemates, Leslie. :) Hahaha Everytime I’m with her, my face is always like the one below. :) Kidding!:) Praying for our growth in our relationship with God!! <3
And that’s Maika! My super pretty housemate rin. She’s always fun to be with! Az in. We have our own way to find something funny about something. :) Love you girl.
And that’s Ghelvin. :) We do not get to hang out a lot but when we do, it’s always fun! :)
You have only seen four of Kalsoc — my best buds in LB! :) I love you girls to bit! Not everyone has been given the chance to live an apartment with your besties! I hope we remain like this forever until we get wed n years from now! Always thanking God for you! :)
All photos are taken by the Dani Coro. so galing magpicture! :)
Happy new year everyone! :) This is my first post for 2014 and one of my many new year resolutions to keep this blog updated all the time. So guys, this is what I wore to our family reunion a while ago.
I tried to be simple as possible. I got my dress from Mura Dito, a shop in Divisioria. It’s very cheap and doesn’t look like the usual clothes that come from Divisoria. My sandals were from Charcoal. It was my Tita’s Christmas present. I love it because I can wear it everytime it rains in UPLB.
Anyway, here are other photos. Hahaha!:)
I think that this is a better Facebook profile picture :(
But this is my DP :( Do you think that I should change my DP with the photo above?
Natuwa lang ako sa test shoot.
Anyway, I feel so excited for what God has planned for me this year! and I am going to have a partial closet makeover because God has been dealing to me if what clothes would honor Him.
Hi everyone! I’m so thankful because 2013 was/is a blast. It’s the best year so far and I’m totally looking forward for 2014. So here are my top 12 highlights (one for each month) for this year.
Econsoc’s Strobe Party. As an external affairs committee member, it is very fulfilling to be a part in making this happen (though unfortunate events happened in the making). Also because I got this legit Forever 21 dress for only 300 pesos. Because I had this picture with Pathway <3 and because that “thing” happened which led me seeking Jesus.
My housemates surprised me for my 18th birthday. It was a sweet gesture from them. It took them so much time and effort. Hahaha. But this was a very long story.
No photo. The grades that I did not deserve. Because I learned that I deserve a nothing but then God gave me more. <3
My baby sister/pamangkin. At first I didn’t like the feels of having a sibling but I can say now that it is one of the best feelings ever <3
Fashion internship. I have no photo and I’m not allowed to post anything about it. :( But it’s the best job ever!
Educom’s UPCAT Review. This school year, I transferred to another committee in our organization because I dreamed of being a teacher before, and this was a part of my fulfilling my dreams. I taught Math to 4th year students. I hoped that they passed UPCAT.
I had ombre red hair. It was supposed to be pink but the color faded as days passed by. This was part of my bucket list because I realized that I could never get this hair color again. (maybe because the firm that I’ll be working for someday has strict hair color rules)
Actually, I’m thankful for these people all year round and forever. (hahaha I can’t think of something to post for August eh so I posted this but I’m thankful for my VGmates all days of my life) These ladies are my sisters in Christ. They push me towards God. They are always there to listen <3
My Victory Weekend!! This is one of the best days of my lie. Finally, declaring to the other believers that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. <3
No photo. My grades for the first semester. I deserve singkos because I learned that I deserve nothing but yet God gave me more than that. I didn’t even give my all yet I passed!
Thankful for second semester because I know that it’s going to be the best sem yet!!
Econsoc. The best org ever. Being part of it is really one of the highlights of my life. Having people that you know would be with you for a lifetime. (if not all, at least some) :)
I owe this post to God. This all happened because of Him, because He is faithful and loving. Thank you Father. I’m so excited for 2014. :)
17 years of my life, I thought that Christmas is giving gifts or money, having new clothes and shoes, and people are obligated to be happy just because it is Christmas. Or I thought that it was making a point that you actually heard mass which is a little different from Sunday masses. However, I know that Christmas is the birthday of Jesus Christ. Period. Then, so what?
Ever sine I accepted Jesus as my Savior, I learned today that Christmas is a season for us to be reminded that 2000 years ago, God gave His only Son to take your place for your sins. God is a just and loving God. According to the Scriptures, for the wages of sin is death. Thus, we have to go to hell. However, Jesus was sent to pay that death. He bought us with His blood. Thus, Christmas is a reminder that Jesus was born to save us from our sins. This is the best gift ever, right?
Merry Christmas everyone! Let us not forget that we celebrate Christmas because of Jesus.
My professor in Speech Com 1 asked us to paint a picture in her head (using words) about that someone we want to spend forever with. I always have with me the mental list that contains the characteristics of that someone.
He loves God above all. He loves Him more than he loves me.He has done his best to reserve his purity for me. He listens to indie music. He drives listening to Passion Pit. He loves watching concerts with me and finds me amusing every time I transform to the free-spirited, spontaneous, carefree woman that I always wanted to be. He loves my family especially my mom. He also loves his own family and is very close to his siblings. He loves kids as well. He paints, draws, takes beautiful photos. He loves to travel. We plan to go to South Africa some time. He often not take me to dinner, because he loves cooking dinner for me. He doesn’t smoke or drink just like my daddy. He does not like what the world offers him. He does not compromise with what society thinks is cool because he knows that following God is the coolest thing ever. He loves my friends and he treats them dinner (with me, of course). He loves reading books. He’s very smart, the street wise type.
He looks okay. He has defined arch eyebrows. He has a mole under his right eye. He had braces before. He is not well-built. He’s sort of thin but not the skeleton type. He has eyeglasses but I always love looking at his brown eyes.
Hi guys! :) How are you na? I know that we are all in the toughest season of this semester! :) “Hell Week” hehe! However, my Christian friends would refer to this week as Grace Week, and indeed it is true! :) hahaha! :) God has blessed me so much this week! :) and I know that you were too! :)
Gals and guys, I’m sharing to you what has God revealed to me yesterday. :) So here it goes..
The topic in the youth service in our local church these past four weeks is the trademark of being a Christian. We’ve been talking about what makes a Christian, a Christian.
Having a relationship with Jesus makes one a Christian. Thus, love, obedience and fruit follow.
Let’s talk about love first. (hehe what i’m sharing to you guys is what i’ve learned or what Jesus has revealed to me. it’s not exactly what was taught during the youth service, okay?)
Loving others as Jesus loves us is not easy. It means that we must be selfless, we must love others unconditionally and sacrificing for others.
Obedience is of course obeying God. And it is not easy because sometimes following God is illogical. (have you experienced it na ba, when God is telling you to do things that are very inconvenient?)
Lastly, having a relationship with Jesus is bearing fruit. Bearing fruit results to a changed life and making disciples.
So during those youth services, while listening to the pastor, I thought to myself that hey, it’s not that difficult, i can really do that. However, God challenged me yesterday. :) (OMG. Lord God, I really really thank you for these times when I can practice obeying you.) So yesterday, as I went home, I found out that my mother was not yet well. (she has tremendous cough, i think) Also, I already planned on working for my Econ 171 project last night. (if you knew me, I’m great at making and following schedules for myself. i believe that time is not gold, it’s diamond).Unfortunately, I was asked by my mother to accompany her to go to the hospital. (lol. i’m still struggling with having self-control when it comes to my mother) so i went with her, thinking that it would just take us a FEW HOURS. :) (few hours for me is like 3 or 4 hours. i didn’t bring a book or earphones) as we commuted to the hospital last night, i told God that are you giving me the opportunity to tell my mom how you have saved her? so i prayed to God na He’ll use this opportunity to tell mom about salvation. (it’s really awkward for me to do this things with my mom.) With God’s grace, i have told my mom how she was saved by Jesus Christ. as in. haha end up crying actually. :) not really cry, but tears fell from my eyes. hahaha. and ayon. i thought that that was the last time of the day that God will tell me to do something. but no. i was wrong. the God of the universe has something else great for me. at around 10pm in the evening (we were already 2 hours in the hospital) i was at the point of giving up and telling my mom that i have to go home. so i started going out of the emergency room when i heard God said, STAY. huhuhubels. so i stayed.(this is one of the illogical things that God asked me to do) and i thought that it would just take us an hour lol. as an economist, i was already computing for the opportunity cost of staying there instead of doing my project. i thought again that it was the last time God will ask me to do something else for my mom, i was wrong again. My mom asked me to buy a tissue. or look for one. i’ve searched afar and not found one. the only place where i can buy tissue is the mercury drugstore situated in front of the hospi, and it would take me to cross the long overpass just to get there. :( so i have nothing else to do but follow God and buy my mom a issue. :)
you know what, i realized something. that these things, obeying God, sacrificing sleep for my mother, these are all the results of the overflow of God’s love for me. The overflow will make these things easy to do. These are nothing compared to what Jesus has done on the cross. And my prayer is that I would grow more in love with God para mas may overflow. I pray that I would be a Christian not just in school but also in our house. :) hehehe. Also, I realized that I stayed with my mom in the hospi for just 6-7 hours. Compare that to the 12 hours of labor she has experienced for me :( huhubels. i love my mom so much, but I love God more. :) God thank you because you love me so much that I can love my mother this much! :))
Hi guys! Do you wanna know what my dreams are? hahaha! I’m gonna share it to you! i do not even share this with my friends. :)
I want to become a mother. HAHAHA =) grabe lang. (okay tagalog na para feel na feel ko) so eto. gusto ko na maging nanay. dati kase ayoko. gusto ko lang maging successful na someone. haha. as in. pero ngayon gusto ko na maging Mama. :) dati, gusto ko magasawa pag 30 years old na ako, pero ngayon 27 pa lang gusto ko na may baby na ako. :) hahahaha EHMERGERD. ayon. pero gusto ko pa rin maging fashion stylist. :) ewan ko ba. baka magbago pa to.
God is my hope in my academics. (and all aspects of my life)
Hi guys! I just wanna share with you how I conquered this week through God. Aug.27-Aug.30 was my grace week. Az in. I do not even know how would I start that day. I prayed and prayed to God to bless me because if it just me, I really don’t know what would I do. Aug. 26, I was still at home, I haven’t got studied my exam for the next day. However, I managed to study for a short period of time. So I prayed to God for divine leakage and prayed for His Will for my exam. I learned after a few days, that I got one of the highest scores for that exam. I just don’t know how it happened, but I know that it was God. Then Thursday came, I had an exam at one of my majors, my first exam for that was low but passing. The topic of the exam was one of my weaknesses because I never really liked macroeconomics. I hate exchange rates, trade balances,and all. :( But during the exam, I do not know what happened, but I felt confident with my answers. I still don’t know the results but I know God has His ways. Thursday night came, I’m super sleepy. as in. I have quizzes, papers to pass, and an exam the following day. But I’m so tired and SLEEPY :( I slept at 10pm and promised to wake up at 11pm, alarmed my phone at 2am, 4am and 5pm. I really intended to skip 3am. HARHAR. I was really not scared for not studying. (lol. I studied my IE 31 exam for almost two weeks. hahaha) During that exam, I also felt confident. But still praying for God’s favor for the results! :)
But I’m really not that type of person. Before, I often get scared when I know that I’m not prepared for examinations. I get frustrated when I get low exam scores. But one thing happened to me. I lifted everything to God, esp. my acad life. It happened when I was super depressed when I got low a exam score in the first exam of my Econ 103. I studied so hard for that exam but after taking the exam, I really felt depressed because my answers were very different from my classmates’s. So I cried. I really felt embarassed from my friends, and most especially to God. I realized that hey, it’s like I’m making idols through my grades. :( It was the worst. Thank God because He talked to me immediately. (more like He asked me) He asked me, “Isn’t My love enough for you?” :(
Of course God, it’s enough. It’s more than enough. I do not even deserve it. And with that, I lifted to God my acads. I will not boast whatever good things may happen to my acads, because it’s not me. It will never be because of me. And when bad things happen, it’s also God. He has great plans for my life, and that includes the best plans for my acad.
John 8: 31-32 “So Jesus said to those who believed to him. ‘If you obey my teaching, you are really my disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’”
The truth will set you free. I first heard the sentence, “The Truth Will Set You Free.” when I was in high school. I didn’t know that it came from the Bible. Before, I thought that it means that every time I accept the reality, i can now breathe.So in other words, this is what I thought it means
So i thought that it’s better if I just keep things to myself.
But I learned that’s not what it means.
It means that acknowledging that we are all sinners but God gave up His Son so that we can be free. To be saved means to accept Christ. And this is the truth. And once you’ve accepted Christ in your life, then you are free.
Accepting Christ in my life is the best decision i’ve made, and now I can say that
Before, my life revolves around me. I controlled my life. I always do what I wanted to do. I have Christian friends who invited me to attend a service and I always rejected them because I thought that it was not for me. “That’s not my thing.” And then one time, I decided to give it a try. I started attending the service and it actually felt good. I was very down at that time. And I was attending the service quite a few times but I felt that nothing was happening to me. I was not changed. I was still doing my old ways, I get drunk, I cursed. And there was that one time that I have responded to God’s call to me. I finally have accepted Christ in my life. I finally let God write my story. I let Him take the wheel. Up to this day, everything is well. I’ve never felt this happy and loved before. Of course, there are constant struggles in my life, there are still things that I’m worried about, but these struggles are nothing compared to the feels that God gives me.
I hope you guys experience the greatest love of all - the Love of God.
If you were to star in your own movie, what would your story be? Share with us your plot. Also, tell us how Kettle Korn makes watching movies poppin’ fun all time!
If I were to star in my own movie, my story would be how I was changed and transformed by God’s love. The first part of the movie would be how drastic my life was when I have not accepted Christ in my life. Then the climax would be when I started living the life He has planned for me, doing things that please Him and sharing my life to other people so that they could also experience God’s love . And I hope that this movie would never end.
Kettle KORN MAKES WATCHING MOVIES POPPIN’ FUN ALL THE TIME BECAUSE THEY ARE SO DELICIOUS THAT YOU’RE NEVER GET BORED WATCHING THE MOVIE.
I was running out of things to write. I have nothing to write. This blog is supposed to be a fashion blog but since i do no not have anything to post, I just kinda want this blog to be alive, active, and blah blah. Anyway, I was thinking of what to share to my readers, if I have any. First, I thought of posting something about the music I’ve been listening to lately but my last post was about Passion Pit. Then, I thought of make-up, but hello, I’m no pro. Then I thought of writing about God,but then I thought that I should post it on facebook so that I can share the Word of God to my friends. haha. Anyway, God spoke to me. I was surfing the net when I saw this picture
And it all came to me.
Last Friday night, I could not sleep because I was thinking of my friend who thinks that she’s ugly and she’s keeps on asking why she doesn’t have a boyfriend blah blah. And I remembered something from my childhood. I remembered my old self, my self when I was in high school. I was not loving my self then. I wished I was someone else. I envy other people to the point that I hated them also. And the worst was, I hated my self. And then I grew up, and asked my self, “Paano ako mamahalin ng ibang tao kung ako mismo hindi ko mahal ang sarili ko?” So I started loving myself again, and developed that super high level of confidence.I lived my life with that thinking And sometimes it worked, but most of the time, it failed me. And I get frustrated. There was still a part in me that was longing for that love, love from boys, from friends and maybe love from my family.
But when I accepted Christ in my life, everything changed. I’ve learned that God’s love is already enough. We do not need any other love to be complete. In Christ, we are already complete. If we accept Him, the thing that we have been missing will be filled with God’s love, and it would overflow.God loves us so much.
I can testify to that. Being an only child, I was used to being the only one, the only princess of my mom and my dad. But today, they kinda adopted my niece who is 5 years old and I was sad and all because I am not the baby anymore. And then I prayed to God. And He answered me. I know that God loves me so much. I am the apple of His eyes. I told myself, “Mahal naman ako ni God eh”.And He transformed me. The feeling that I had towards my niece was lifted up from me. I became a big sister to her. And that’s how God works. :)
I love you God and thank you for loving me more than what I deserve. Your love truly never fails. :))
I love listening to new music. I can appreciate any genre of music from metal rock to mellow songs, from pop songs to modern indie pop and the list goes on. I was very thankful that I’ve discovered this band, Passion Pit. I was in the lowest moment of my life that time in other words, i was broken hearted.(connect?) Anyway, to describe Passion Pit, the best words to use are modern, fun, and I don’t know. Well, listen to them to see for yourself. :)
And my favorite song from their album Gossamer is Carried Away, the song I dedicated to M (yuck, can’t believe i have a song for him). I love the music vid, Sophia Bush is so hot. Well, all their songs are great. Songs which you can listen to while walking pretending that you do not mind other people walking,or while driving so that you won’t get mad to people when they suddenly cross the streets and there you go.
P.S Do you have music you want me to listen to? Share them here! C’mon!
Hi guys! :) I would just like to share to you my lappie’s wallpaper. :) Well, it’s just a collection of the things I adore so much. It’s more of an inspiration board since I’ve kinda gave up on myself these last few days. hihi. But I’m so thankful that I’ve read the word of God and I started believing in myself again and to God’s plan for me. :) I hope that these trials that I’ve encountered would only make me be stronger and have a stronger faith in God. :) If you’re feeling down today, I hope that you would believe that things happen for a reason, a reason that sometimes we cannot understand but still happens because God has his own reason. :)))
So what you can see here are words of wisdom from chic and fabulous women such as Marilyn Monroe, Estee Lauder and Yves Saint Lauren. Also you can see high fashion photos of Coco Rocha and Vanessa Paradis. And some photos are collections from my favorite fashion brands that I can hopefully purchase someday. And others are those that I find inspiring. :)
How do you express your personality through your style?
This is a question I encountered before writing this post. So my first question to myself is what is my personality? I hate describing myself because i am too bias. Hahaha!
That two words can pretty sum up who I am. And I channel my personality in how I dress.
And that is how I do it in my clothes, from formal to casual.
And you can live your style too, with Adidas Neo.
Embrace fun, spontaneity and the unexpected twists in fashion when the adidas NEO Label Spring 2013 collection hits stores in January to March.

Haha! :) So Oh My Gosh! I’m already 18 :) Hahaha Daddy told me last night, “Dalaga na ang baby ko” And I know how difficult for them for this to take. :( But I would always be their baby :)
Anyway, I have so many things to be thankful for. I’m so proud of myself that I have passed through the challenges that I went through. I am also thankful for the opportunities that God gave me. :)
I know that I’ll never be happy without these people. I am not Mia if I never felt how much you love me.
my high school friends who are responsible for what I am today.
Econsoc, for being a family to me in LB.
Kalsoc, for being my best friends/sisters in LB. :) Hahaha Thank you for listening to my problems and for being good advisers. I should have listened to you from the very beginning. :) I spent more than half of my 17th life with you guys, and you made me happy. :) I hope I have the same impact as what you guys have on me :) hahahaha
My family for always being there. Sometimes I think that you think that I chose my friends before you, but that’s totally wrong. I love you the most. Thank you for being my rock, for supporting me in anyway possible.
the girlies, my sisses forevs. I love you! I know that others think that we do not take life seriously, but what they don’t know is that we always talk about serious stuffs to the point that all of us are crying. hahaha :) I always love having conversations with you guys. I know that we are always for each other whenever and wherever.
Eka, I know that we do not bond as often as two best friends should be but I’m always happy everytime we’re together. It’s like taking a break from my normal life. :) It is because from all of my closest friends, you are the only one who has a strong romantic relationships which proves that I am not under a curse, as my other friends would tell me. :) I love you.
For my other achievements such as seeing Adam Levine for real, watching Foster The People live and being a honor roll student in LB, and for other graces that God gave me, I can’t thank him enough!
Of course, I have challenges such as this financial problem that my family is going though, my raging hormones that cause my pimples, my broken heart, and these acad stuffs. :))
Well, I consider these too as God’s gifts for they are making me a stronger human being and they are making me closer to God. There are lessons that I have learned from these and I hope that I would take them with me as I celebrate life at 18. :) I hope that I can be more responsive to price changes and understand that life is not like before, that I have to save more money in order for me to buy the things that I want and that material things are not important. What is important is my relationship to the people who love me and of course, with God.
When it comes to my heart, I should take good care of it more. Hahahaha! :) If you know what I mean. Well, I met four guys when I was 17.
I considered two of them to be “frogs”. HAHAHAH this is so embarassing. I believe we shared “mababaw” feelings with each other. but God is saving me. I was hurt. yes. I was more hurt with the second guy. It is because I was disappointed with myself. I let things happened AGAIN. I had an experience very similiar to that one and I can’t believe that I let it happen to me again :( Also, I made rules to myself, but when it came to him, I let my walls down. :( And now it was over, and I was left. But I was not alone because I have my friends who love me so much and who will never leave me. I realized that I do not need someone to make me feel that I am loved.
How about those two other guys? Hahaha! they are my ideal husbands. :) I should keep my promise to myself that they are my benchmarks when it comes to choosing someone to trust my heart with. And this acad stuff, I do not want to talk about it :) HAHAHAHA
To end this means starting another chapter of my life. Adulthood :( I’m sad because I’m growing older and I’m excited at the same time. I promise to act and THINK according to my age, except when at home. :)
I promise to LOVE MYSELF MORE :) to be a little selfish with my heart so that it would not get broken.
I learned that it’s okay to not trust some people. I should keep my life a closed book so that it would be a privilege for the people who love me to know things about me. And to be more responsible with my actions because I could never right what was wrong or seemed to be wrong to other people. I learn to not care to those who do not care about me, and focus to those who are around me. Life is not the same anymore. This is really the start of getting there.
P.S. Happiness is God. Do not be sad because of others. :)
Ooh I’m back. After so many months of being MIA, I’m here again. Something happened with my laptop that didn’t allow me to open my tumblr. Anyway, here is what I wore during my Mudra’s birthday yesterday. :)
I’m really sorry for the qualities of my photos. You know I suck when it comes to those things. :)
Let’s start from my vest. It is from Cotton On. I love how it works with my corset top. I usually do not wear this top from With Love Clothing because I feel that it’s a little bit daring. But when I wore this vest with the corset top, it looked very wholesome. Haha! I can’t find the exact words.
When I first wore the jeggings, I thought that it didn’t suit my top but it actually looked good together and I think that it was because of the magic corset top.
So did you like it or love it? Super sorry for this post, I wrote in the fly. This should be great because this is my first post for the year, and my comeback, but I have to study :( huhu. Love you all! :*
Pimples. I know they suck. Unfortunately, I am one of those unfortunates who was given with an oily, pimple-zone face. To be honest, it takes my self-esteem down. I always look at the mirror every 30 seconds, thinking that maybe my acne would become smaller or diminish. I would spend a lot of time searching for products that could take away my acne, blemishes, white heads and black heads. But of course, I’m still a student so I’m budget constrained and I’m satisfying myself with these cleansers that do not do good with my face. I know I deserve better.
Good thing that in celebration of its 11th birthday, Flawless is inviting everyone to take advantage of its 1 + 1 beauty blowout this National Flawless Month. If this isn’t the best time to boost or jumpstart your top to toe beauty transformation, then I don’t know what is. Go to www.flawless.com.ph or visit a clinic near you for more information.
Personally, I want to try Flawless’s acne control advanced facial. According to the website, it is “Suitable for those with severe blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and inflammation. Shrinks open pores, cures infections and dries pimples. Treatment combines high concentration of chlorophyll and brown algae with polysaccharides for a strong oxygenating, soothing and revitalizing effect.” Perfect for me, right? I was thinking of having my first facial experience on my 18th birthday. But I’m afraid because maybe this would cause me more breakouts. However, since Flawless is a trusted brand, with many testimonials from our favorite local artists, I think that it is worth a try.
So with that I could have a chance of looking like this without using photoshop.
I just want to be FLAWLESS.
P.S. To all the girls who are reading this blog, who are unhappy with themselves because they believe that they have flaws on the outside, I can totally understand you and I have gone to that phase of my life. But I’m getting over it and I think that you should too. Our flaws are there to remind us that perfect is boring. Maybe my pimples are there to tell me that I am beautiful but there are ugly things in life that I have to face and deal with and find ways to make it disappear. You do not have to be depressed with whatever flaws you have because if you really look and check yourself, there are more beautiful things within you.
Hi guys! Remember when I posted that I got a chance to meet Adam Levine? Oh well, here are the pictures. Thank you so much Bench for giving us this one-of-a-lifetime opportunity! :)Adam Levine is much more gorgeous in personal! :) But I never thought that he’ll look older! Hahahaha! :)
Bel-Air Residences Lipa, Batangas: A House, A Home and A Lot More
When I was in Grade 4, my teacher asked me what is my dream house? I remembered that my teacher and my classmates did not pay attention to my answer. Maybe because they found it very dreamy. My answer was, I want it to have two swimming pools, very big, and so on. But who cares, I’m going to build my dream house.
Well now, if you would ask me the same thing, I want my dream house to be very modern and not very big, since I want to have a small family. I want it to be made up of glasses because I always wanted to have a perfect view from the inside. But of course, I cannot have that dream house in the polluted city of Manila. Good thing that there is Bel-Air Residence in Lipa, Batangas.
Bel-Air Residences Lipa can be found in one of the best cities in the Philippines. It is very near to the beautiful beaches in Batangas, and also near in Tagaytay and it is also one or a two hour drive away from Manila. There are also other leisure places near the place such as Mt. Malarayat Golf Course and the Farm at San Benito.
It is very important that the location where you are living is very close to established hospitals because you’ll never know when emergencies could happen. Good thing that Bel-Air Residences Lipa is very near to these hospitals, Lipa Medix Medical Center and Merto Lipa Medical Center. The village is also walking distance from major malls such as SM Lipa, Fiesta Mall, South Supermarket so if you need to go shopping there’s always a place to be. If you have children, there are also well-known schools near by where you can send your kids to such as Ateneo School of Business, De La Salle University Lipa and many others.
Of course, you want to have a very modern and chic house. There are plenty of houses to choose in Bel-Air Residences.
Lot Area: 55.00 sqm
Total Floor Area: 88.00 sqm
■ Two-storey ■ Living Room ■ Dining Room ■ Kitchen ■ 3 Bedrooms ■ Toilet and Bath ■ Den■ Carport ■ Utility Area
This house is great for a small family. Also, if you and your friends live together, this could be the one.
Lot Area: 88.00 sqm
Total Floor Area: 86 sqm
■ Two-storey Attached■ Living Room■ Dining Room■ Kitchen■ 3 Bedrooms■ 2 Toilet and Bath■ Lanai■ Porch■ Utility Area
I think that this is just the same with the Townhouse. But if you want to have a garden, this can be it. But if you’re in a budget, better go with the Townhouse.
Samantha (single detach)
Minimum Lot Area: 120.00 sqm
Total Floor Area: 101.00 sqm
■ Two-storey Single Detached■Living Room■Dining Room■Kitchen■3 Bedrooms■2 Toilet and Bath■Maid’s Room■Lanai■Patio■Porch■Carport■Utility Area
I think that this also the same except that if you have an extra room for whatever you choose to be it like servant’s quarter, guest room or your nest for your secret desires. (LOL. I suddenly remember Christian Grey’s Red Room)
And this is my personal choice, Alexandra (single detached)
Lot Area: 165.00 sqm
Total Floor Area: 139.00 sqm
■Two-storeySingle Detached■Living Room■Dining Room■Kitchen■3 Bedrooms (Master’s Bedroom with Walk-in Closet)■3 Toilet and Bath■Family Area■Balcony■Maid’s Room■Lanai■Carport■Utility Area
This is my personal choice because this is the most spacious since I always wanted to have a house where my family and friends can visit me and still be comfortable in my own home. I want this also because if ever I’ll have children (but this is going to happen in the next decade) I want them to have their own bedrooms. I would also love to have a common area where we can all watch movies together, sing karaoke, and do many other activities.
Beside from having a house in a very secured subdivision, owners will also enjoy amenities such as exclusive basketball courts, a jogging path, a playground for kids, barbeque area, multiple parks, a pool, a lanai, a gazebo and a Club House.
So what are you waiting for? This is a very good investment. Avail this because you and your family need it and deserve it.
uhm, hello. i would just like to ask about your foster the people concert post, the place where you were staying while taking the photos, was it on the last row of Upper A? what section was that?

And here is a collection from Bimba and Lola. I do not know much about the clothing line but I immediately fell in love with this collection. I know, it’s not weather appropriate here in the Philippines, but the cold days of December are now near and maybe these can be your Simbang Gabi outfit. Ooh, this gives me an idea to post 9 outfits perfect for Simbang Gabi. Hahaha. Would you like one? Anyway back to the topic, I googled Bimba and Lola and found out that it came from Spain.
