OOTD: In action










They were serious when they said, "LIFE IS SHORT" 'cause really I barely felt November.
It passed by really quick and the next thing I know, it was already the 2nd of December.
Ohh, Christmas. It's the most wonderful time of the year. Yes it is, when I was still a kid & studying.
For me, Christmas is about family, get togethers, lights, lots of lights, good food, new things and of course, money. That was my opinion before, when I am still a kid and when I was still studying. I just don't know now. I am clueless. I keep on asking my Mom, "Would I still receive gifts?" And she kept on answering me, "You'll be the one who will give gifts now." It is a love-hate kind of reaction. I love it 'cause I'd be able to give which is what Christmas is all about and hate it because you know, I'm still expecting to receive something, somehow. #Immature

Christmas is almost upon us as well as 13th month pay.
Still don't know what to get for myself this Christmas though.
I have never felt this bored in my entire life.
 Sigh.

WHAT I WORE:
Midriff top- Online, sister's
Leopard print, chiffon skorts- Landmark
Platforms- H&M, thrifted
Printed socks- Forever21, sister's
Chain necklace- DIY

OOTD: a kind of lux that ain't for us










Surprise, ombre hair no more.
Last Sunday, got really bored and just decided to cut my hair straight right through the ombre line.
It came out to be too short but whatever, I can handle it.
Still don't know what to do next. I want to try digital perm but too scared coz I only want waves not curls. Also, I want to try different hair color. I want to go all blonde but that's too loud for me though I really really want to. No plans at all.

This Lita boots wasn't actually a real Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots.
That's too expensive for my life so I just asked my friend who happens to be from Marikina and has a shoemaker father to just make a pair for me. Not loving the heels though. I want it to be wood but they couldn't find one, so hence this.

I am really inlove with the print of this top but it's cut/ style is really not for me.
It's too loose, too big and one time I paired it with leggings it made me look like I am pregnant or plus 100 pounds for my size. Then suddenly thought of skaters, and so my experiment went like this.
It's casual and classy. It can be an everyday look paired with a ballet flats or it can be for parties paired with heels.

OOTD: After Gig Decent








I really feel like an indie singer who just got home from a gig somewhere in Morato or Malate
which explains the title of this blog post.

Anyhoo, I just wanna share my shopping experience last week with my sister.
I am really not into buying stuff in the mall (unless it's my parents who will pay for it. LOL) but then I needed to buy clothes since I am running out of things to wear for work. So we went to SM Department Store, yes I frequently visit the dept store but never buy anything unless badly needed just like this instance. But then I fell in love with it. They really stepped up their game huh, cause they are selling nice and quality yet budget friendly clothes. This top I am wearing here in this photo, believe it or not I bought 2 shirts and it just costs me Php200 (well, cause they do have a buy 3 take Php100 off promo) and they're selling it for like Php149.95 per shirt. Not bad for a graphic shirt lover, eh? Planning to buy more and turn it into muscle shirts and they do have a lot of designs too. 
These pants I am wearing is just too comfortable and it fits just fine in my thighs plus it makes it look slimmer (well, because it is black). I super love these buys and I would really love to check out the dept store more often. I am just too in love.

See my shoes? Yes, yes, never thought I'd be owning one but then I guess shoes are really my weakness.
Bought it online cause they're like selling these in GH for like 10K as if it was a legit Isabel Marant.
I like these because it has different textures like the suede/ velvet plus leather and additional oomph because of the brown-orange-ish sole, it is just really perfect to pull off a grunge yet classy look. You feel me?

WHAT AM I WEARING?

Graphic tee- culTure/ SM Dept. Store
Black distressed skinnies- Dollhouse/ SM Dept. Store
Isabel Marant inspired sneaker wedge- Luxury Mall
Denim button down- thrifted

D i v i d e d





I seldom dress up for work. I don't think it's necessary. I don't see it as a runway. You just sit there for 8-hours, so no need to dress that awesome up. At work, I am with my usual t-shirt-cardigan-jeans-flats ensemble which, according to my friend Jay, makes me look old and that it seems like I am going to the market or a student who will just complete her requirements and honestly, that hurts. I usually don't care but coming from a friend, that hits me a lot. Offended.

Hence, it made me decide to spend my Sunday afternoon thrift shopping last week.
I was supposed to buy sweaters and pullovers which are really my thing nowadays or ever since.
But failed to do so coz I was too lazy and the shops I've been too was on their mid-sale already so almost all of the good stuff are gone. When I was about to give up, a rack full of sneaks caught my attention.I know, I know, I just recently purchased a pair of wedge sneakers last August (which I will be blogging about soon, here) and that I should restrain myself from buying another pair. But then, I saw this pair of lovely thick-soled sneakers, tried it on, voila! T'was love at first sight, well actually sort of since I am really planning to buy a pair of all-black Vans classic but they only have it in their lo-pro which is too thin for me, so I guess this is thick enough for me. Meeh~

La Poursuite Du Bonheur


This is what I feel right now.
It feels like the world around me stopped and I was able to look at it real close.
The people around me. Those who I love. Those who I loathe.
The things that I have been doing, those I haven't done and I would like to do.
The places I would love to go to and I have been missing going in to.
The memories I always keep on remembering and those that I am trying to forget.
And most importantly, the life that I would like to live!


Am I? Really?
All this time, all I have been craving for is my happiness.
Happiness defined deeper.
Not anymore the kind of happiness that I used to describe as
shoes, clothes, gadgets and whatnot.
So I guess, this is really growing up.
More on finding yourself, looking for what makes you happy, real happy.
The search for something that would make you feel fulfilled, that certain warmth that would awaken the real passion inside of you, not just something that would give you short time happiness and the aftermath of "What now?"


Money can never define happiness. Well, that's for sure.
Take it from me who depends her happiness from money ... but not anymore.
I work for money, for the god sake of money but then it does nothing for me.
Yes, I was able to buy all of the things that I like, that I love and sometimes I don't even need,
and afterwards I always get this annoying "What now?" feeling.
I can never live with that. If I will be working for money, I want to have fun.
I don't want every single day of my life to be a freaking cycle.
Sorry, I don't settle for a routine. I want variety. I want something else, that even myself cannot even determine what and that's what hurts and worries me the most.


And yes, even the sun sets in paradise.
That's why I have decided already to leave my post.
I will take the fall.
I am still young anyway. I still have a lot of time to work for other people.
But as of now, I would like to work for myself first.
I want to enjoy my freedom. I want to enjoy the life that I used to have before.
I would like to search for what I would really like to be.
I don't want to depend on what I think would fit for me just because it is what I studied for in college.
I want to know my real passion. I want to know myself more.
And I know I wouldn't be able to do it if I will keep myself in that four walled concrete.


I am really excited.
Maybe I will continue taking pictures and all that.
I have enough money anyway to buy the lens that I have been longing for.
I will accompany my Pop, maybe, whenever he goes to Tagaytay.
Meet old friends. Visit places I am longing to visit. Have a life. A life.


No regrets.
At the end of the day, it is still my happiness that will matter.

Roar!!!


I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything


You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake your ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now


I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar


Now I’m floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero


this deserves a hashtag OOTD.

MEOW~


What are ya meowing at?

I am such a lazy ass blogger but hey I'm here again.

Anyhoo, what's up? Well, I can barely have a life at all but then I'm still surviving, almost gave up though.
So, these past few weeks my life has been a stressful, surreal blur.
I miss the good life. But then the good life before can't provide me moolah to buy the things that I want.
So I better settle on this kind of life besides it is my source of happiness and by happiness I mean shoes, clothes, gadgets and food. The drawback of having a work though is having less time for A LIFE, you know what I mean? Yeah, compared to my life before as a student, I have more time yet no money. Now I have money yet so little time for myself to spend it. This is the reality, people.


But hey! Every off, I find time to spend a life with my bubby. 2 weeks in a row we went out and have a date which we haven't done before or for quite some time now. And due to my sched change ('again' but now it's for good), we might not do it anymore 'coz I sometimes feel like not leaving the house during off especially when it is on a weekday but then, let's see, as much as possible I want to collect memories with this guy because I am missing him too much every single day of my life. ~CHEESE~

Toodaloo!

P U L L O V E R


~Hey!

I bleached my hair again last night. Preparing it for another dye job. Thinking of getting my whole head bleached but then I am too unsure about that idea.

So how y'all doing? Miss blogging too much. I don't have enough time anymore plus laptop is fucked up and well, zero social life. But I have Twitter & Instagram though which saves me from boredom.

Sort of miss thrift shopping too. Payday is kind of slow this month. Or maybe I am just too impatient coz I am almost out of money. Which leads to the idea that maybe I should save more and spend less. Well, I like this kind of life, that I work my butt off so I could buy the things that I want, though a little bit impractical because I am not saving up for the future. I am just too thankful that nobody is stopping me from doing things that I like for my life. Co-workers would always tell me, "You're lucky because you don't have kids yet and that your money is wholly yours." --Like dude, you don't understand how hard it is to think where to spend my money, so don't you tell me that I am lucky! Haah! Kidding. :)

Work is slowly unfolding it's real character. Stressful, pressure-some, tiring. It's easy, yes, if there are no complications but then I guess that's life, nothing comes easy even you are prepared. Few more days left and I will now graduate from the New Hire Academy/ training. It's like facing another chapter, have to deal with different people again, make adjustments and all that. Well.

So my blog pretty became a rant platform already. I swear I'm going to change that and hopefully, create a better post. I know, nobody's interested in my life anyway, so, whatever.

Instax Mini 8


So this pretty came in mail yesterday. I am extremely happy when I saw that it came in good shape and with films. May I just say how satisfied I am with the service provided by the seller.
The transaction is really smooth and my order came in early than expected.


It was really a great deal. I have been eyeing this candy for quite some time now. And I was really frustrated when I knew it was so expensive than I expected it to be. So I waited. And t'was really true that good thing comes to those who wait. BEHATI.


Originally, I am planning to buy one in Lazada. But the color that I wanted was out of stock.
I said to myself, if the mini 8 in pink will be available again, then it is really meant to be mine.
But out of the blue, I tried checking out Ebay. I don't know why. And on the homepage, there are several featured items and I easily saw the Instax Mini 8 + films and swear it was a GOOD deal so right at that moment, I've decided to purchase it. Scared of course because it was my first time to purchase something in Ebay. The next day, I have sent my payment and the seller told me that the item will be shipped within 5- 7 working days but naaah, it came yesterday and I am extremely happy about it. Two thumbs up for the seller.


It was one of my best purchases in my life (so far).
Have to invest on more films though.
Eeeeeeeeppppppppppppppp!!!
