ER1

ER2

ER3


ER4


ER5


Emergency! It's full of action, drama and suspense! It's not really my favorite place to stay, though I salute the doctors and the nurses who have been working there the whole time. Kudos to you guys!! 

I don't usually rock monochromatic ensembles but I loved this one. These are my favorite boots from payless shoe source. These boots are very cheap but at the same time they are priceless!!! Shades - Fly, Jeans - Candie's, Blazers - Shapes and the tube top was given by my mom. Thanks mom!!!

Credits to Ba - Aivors, she wasn't feeling well but still she took my pictures. You are a fighter!! She felt a lot better after this, so don't worry! <3 p="">
There is nothing so strong or safe in an emergency of life as the simple truth.

From Mustard to Gold? Or is it just Mustard Gold?





Love this golden skirt from NAVA, bought it on their clearance sale. It's a schoolgirl-esque type of outfit which works great for petite girls like me. Throw in a mustard polo shirt which gives a boyish yet girly look. ;) I'm also wearing my R2D2 inspired sleeveless shirt. Pop of color violet shoes surprisingly goes well with yellow and gold. Hope you guys love it!!!

I think faith is the small mustard seed of opportunities every day. For example, 'Am I going to love this person? Am I going to share my faith with this person? Am I going to pray that little prayer?' It really is a daily thing where you seize those little mustard seed opportunities and then see what God does. -Mark Batterson

All the fuzzy stuff --- a supposed to be review for John Legend's Tonight





What does it mean to love? I don't know for sure, but what I know is, it's the most enjoyable feeling in the world. I'm not a love expert, I can be dense most of the time, (hehehe!!) but the thing that I can share with you is that I know, and I've felt it. And surely, it is as real as it gets.

As I was growing up, I've never really believed in it. I even second guessed that I had a heart. Though I was compassionate with the world and all that, focusing my energy onto a particular person hasn't crossed my mind (You can ask my friends about it). By high school, they had these plans about the future, the dream of getting married, first dates, this 'Mr. Right', wedding gowns and all that. "I am so weird", I said to myself at that time. As much as I would like to contribute, I never really had anything in mind, and I was a teenager. Though I had crushes, I never really got into those details of the not so far future of mine.

I was practically a sad kid/teen, I thought that love wasn't for me. Mostly I was influenced by the things that was around me, my parents never really had that  great of a relationship, most of the pairings in my family are something that what you can call #WWYT stories. So, by the time I wanted to go out and explore the world, love was not a part of any of my lists.

There were people who would attempt to get closer other than a friend kind of level and then I would just brush them off. Not even letting them try, I had this auto shield working on. I was so naïve, thinking I can stop myself from feeling something but then, I grew older. And as an added package, curiosity hit me. My friends were now having 'that' person in their lives, their glow was something else, they won't even say anything but there was such a spark in their eyes and you'd that it was joy that they are feeling. NBSB, you can probably imagine how left out I felt that time, I , for the first time in my life, felt that shopping won't fill the void and loneliness that I had in my heart. Haha!!! I know what you're thinking, but it's all true, I tend to turn my attention into buying stuff when I feel like I'm missing something. I became so shallow. I thought that I can easily just buy my way into happiness but it wasn't being all happy that I want, I wanted joy.

I found it hard to share myself with another person. I felt like there was something wrong with me. Why can't I just make myself be lovable? So here comes my problem solving skills, if I have something good to say about myself, it is probably this one. I've always believed that a person can always work on his imperfections and we can always strive to be a better version of ourselves. My observation was, I wasn't letting anybody in, erratum, it's not even an observation, I was aware of this from the beginning, I had this auto shield on me so it's part of the problem.

Love is something that you allow, you have to be open to let it find you, to let it seek you. In reality, the shield that was protecting me, it wasn't doing that, it was separating me from possibilities, things that are about and supposed to happen. I was so afraid that if I let them see me for who I really was, no one would really care to get me out of the wall that I put myself into. Then I realized no one will pull me out of it, no one would remove the auto shield that I turned on except for myself. Myself. I felt so much before that I wasn't capable of love so it didn't come to me, I thought of it as just a tragic story with different versions for everyone. Cynic, yes. I knew I didn't even love myself during that time and it resulted to me feeling empty and alone.

As much as don't want to fall in love before, was that I wanted to be a better person and I wanted to grow up even more. So, I decided to be brave, and beginning on loving my own soul. Then when love finally found me, it turned out to be a wonderful BONUS gift that I will definitely cherish.

P.S. : This was supposed to be a review for John Legend's Tonight. Haha!!! But I can say that it still is, It is what the song makes me feel. It made me think of love and my love. <3>
Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. ― AnonymousThe New Jerusalem Bible

Swimming in Swimsuits


DISCLAIMER: Sorry for the bad photos here... ha-ha!! Could have taken better shots but I was in so much hurry to catch our trip. As I was picking out which swimsuits to wear, it just crossed my mind to post them here. So yeah, again please excuse the bad photos.

I've always found it hard to pick out the correct swimsuit for my body type. I have a love-hate relationship in  wearing swimsuits probably because I'm at this stage wherein I'm still finding the full confidence of rocking them. Considering that I still need to think about my love handles and what not, I need to find a swimsuit that I can wear comfortably at the beach.

funny picturesAs a Filipina, I've always had this struggle of being top heavy. My friends would say that I'm very lucky but when you can't find something that would fit, without something popping out here and there, I can really say that it's both a blessing and a curse. Hell, I can't even find my size in a clearance sale, not even in an SRP day, but that's a different topic.

Going back, I've always wanted full support for my tah tahs so that is one of the factors that I highly consider when picking out swimsuits. I really found it amazing that they have underwire tops now for swimsuits. So, thanks to the people who invented those body flattering swimsuits!!! Yey! If it weren't for them we could've still be swimming naked not that some people would have a problem with that but you know, that just wouldn't work for me. I didn't know that underwire bras were already out since the 1940s, they even had some corset like swimsuits back then. (my ignorant moments. heehee...)

Another thing is, I'm short, so I don't really think that doing a one piece ensemble would work for me. I tend to pick out two-piece swimsuits so I will not look like a twelve year old on the beach and will look a little bit longer than I normally do.

Comfortability is the something that I consider as well, that's why if you've noticed, I pick out boy legs as bottoms, It makes me move a lot easier and faster without worrying so much about how my butt looks like.

Style comes in last for me, I mean, I'll be wearing swimsuits on vacations and I'm supposed to be having fun. What's the use of style if you can't really wear and feel good in it right? And since you are mostly showing your body, as long as your body looks and feels great in those sexy swimwear, then who cares right? Confidence is automatically a great style!

Fireworks and Lanterns


fireworks1

I've always been fascinated by fireworks and lanterns. It's very hypnotic and magical to me, how they explode into colors in the night. It often reminds me of warmth and light. 

My leggings here remind me of those two things. It's very eye catching that's why I always pair it up with simple tops just like this one. Very comfy especially if you have a lot of errands to do for the day. Just pair it up with boots then it adds that edge into this look.

We shall go wild with fireworks...And they will plunge into the sky and shatter the darkness.
We don't have any fireworks that big”
