Fault in Our Stars


Due to the holidays, I have been spending a lot of time on my computer - digging up old photos and post processing them. I’m excited and I can’t wait to show them to all of you! :) Let me start with my latest work :)

“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” - Fault in our Stars by John Green

Although I’ve already read this, I still want to get my own copy of this book (only borrowed from a friend). Hoping to one day pass it on to my kids, to inspire them too, you know? :)

Who doesn't like comfy shoes?

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about this online store that sells really comfortable customized shoes and just had to see it for myself.

Shoes Made For Walking celebrated its first anniversary last February - a year of making the best everyday shoes for every woman. Flats, peeptoes, alpargatas, mary janes - you name it, they got it! You can choose from over 70 swatches and combine them as you wish. If you have something more specific in mind, you can even send them a photo, and they’ll try to make it for you! :)

Here is my first pair from SMFW. I chose a floral design with a black base and added a fuchsia ribbon to make it more girly (as if peep toes wasn’t girly enough). True to its name, its shoes are really perfect for walking around in - for strolling the park, grocery-shopping, mall-hopping, or whatever else! It’s comfortable, and the best part is, it’s very affordable! For as low as P500, you can already have your own pair of comfy flats! Unbelievable, right?? It is truly every girl’s dream to find shoes like these :)

Thank you, SMFW, and to the owner Joy Buena for being so accommodating!:) Will definitely get another pair in the near future!

On the road.


Spent the last two days in the province/countryside. :) Took advantage of the afternoon sun by walking around and snapping photos of nature.

God is good. :)

Lightweight

Light on my heart
Light on my feet
Light in your eyes
I can’t even speak
Do you even know
How you make me weak

I’m a lightweight
Better be careful what you say
With every word
I’m blown away
You’re in control of my heart
I’m a lightweight
Easy to fall, easy to break
With every move my whole world shakes
Keep me from falling apart

- Demi Lovato, Lightweight

A New Beginning

Summer has officially started for me and to be honest, I’m a bit scared because I don’t know where this will lead me. I have twice rejected the opportunity to go to the US and I really don’t know if it was the right thing to do. I haven’t any roads to follow, but only a mantra - to try and live each day to the fullest.

“Each day is a new beginning. A day wasted is a day you can never get back - so make it count.”

Flashback: Shine in the Sun


Posting this because the sun against her skin is just glorious. 
Oh… what I would do to go on another shoot. I miss those days.

Demi Lovato LIVE in Manila!




I watched the Demi Lovato concert last night with my boyfriend - the handsome fellow you see above. SHE WAS AWESOME! I have been a big fan of hers for a long time now. She really is an amazing artist; I remember when her song “Catch Me” first came out, I played it on loop for days. Sometimes, I even forget that she’s a Disney star like Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens because her talent is on a totally different scale from theirs.

I didn’t mind waiting an hour and a half to hear her sing for just an hour. Even though I wasn’t familiar with some of the songs that she performed, it was really nice just to listen to her voice and watch her fill up with emotions in every performance, especially when she sang “Skyscraper.”

Wow. Just wow. Thank you for a great night, Demi Lovato! :) Will go listen to your songs now.

A Floral Impulse

Another Forever 21 impulse buy. My favorite next to the Aztec one found here.

Kind of unfortunate, because on my next visit to the store, I found a floral print which I like a lot more than this one. Oh well, that’s why you call it impulse. :P

Beach anyone? :)

Lucky Little Ducky

 

The best boyfriend would offer to paint your nails when you can’t (even though he doesn’t know how). Lucky girl right here.

I love this guy. :)

Time, Please Stop.

Time is moving way too fast for me! Summer’s already here. The school year’s going to be over in a few days. It won’t be long til my students forget about me :(

I must remember to bring tissue paper during their moving up / graduation programs.

13 Months!

Soooo, my boyfriend and I forgot that we’re celebrating our 13th month together today. I just remembered on my way home from dinner and our movie date.

Oh well, better late than never. Happy 13th, Love! :)

Aztec Craze


I found this cool sunnies at Forever 21 yesterday. People closest to me know how big of a fan I am of aztec prints. Also saw a sling bag that would match perfectly, but I chose not to buy it ‘cause I figure I could use the money on something else (plus the fact that the bag was a bit pricy). But ohmygaaahd, it really was the prettiest thing. sighsighsigh.

Oh, Wish Fairy, where are you when I need you? *dies a bit inside*

Garage Sale, Anyone?


Over the weekend, my boyfriend and his siblings held a garage sale to get rid of the junk they’d rather not bring into their new home. I, of course, being the ever so supportive girlfriend, joined to help them. A day before, they handed out flyers at nearby hubs to get some people to come. Lo and behold, Saturday morning, an hour before they were to open, people were already lining up in front of their house to see what treasures they could get at the lowest prices. I also learned more about Mike and his family as they told me stories about the items they were selling and the other stuff they decided to keep as they continued to clean up their place. :)

In this picture is the banner I made near closing time on Sunday afternoon. :P

Forever 21 Sports


Last February 25, I forced myself to get out of the house. Being that it was a holiday, all I wanted to do was lay in bed while I watched my series. Then I remembered what I told myself at the start of the year - that I had to shed some pounds and get healthy. So yeah, I went to the mall to do the first step in getting fit (in my world, at least) - buy the right clothes. Plus, I realized I couldn’t survive with a pair of jogging pants and a sports bra anymore. Heh :P

Who would’ve thought I’d find my sports attire at Forever21? Well, I’m probably the last person in the world to know about that, but pfft, that doesn’t change the fact that I was absolutely thrilled with these buys! With clothes as colorful as these, I will definitely be encouraged to go to the gym or play badminton more often! :)
