13 Going On 30

Right before I turned 25, I was a mess. I was insecure, afraid, and didn’t know if I was where I was supposed to be. But I’ve come to realize that you can’t compare yourself to others or pattern your life after someone else’s. And I think that’s why I’ve been more carefree and have finally let go of worrying…

Happy Thoughts: Kababawan Edition

One of my outfits got featured on the newly-launched the mall. I wore my red lippie today and a former officemate commented, “You look like you could be in a movie!” Saw an old boss, who I haven’t seen in years! She said, “I love your hair on you. So nice!” Just yesterday, my seatmate told me I was looking…

Happy Thoughts

Completing silly projects like wearing a pair of sneakers every day. (I am still missing one pair but am not in the mood for sneakers today.) Having a cup of instant hazelnut mocha. My brother went crazy at a duty free shop a couple of weekends ago and this was part of his loot. Putting my fate in my hands….

Good Eats and the Good Things

And just like that, it’s four days until December. Where did 2010 go? This week felt so long yet whizzed by just like that.

In the grand tradition of making lists, here are my instant cheer pills lately. Silly boy crushes. I get all giddy like a high school girl with a crush whenever I see stuff about my…

Cheap Finds

Sometimes, getting out of the office (away from the computer and the harsh fluorescent lighting) is a welcome break. Today, we got invited to try out this new nail spa (will post it on Candy soon!). It had a beach theme going on and they had a “menu” where you could choose your treatment. It was super fun! And I’m…

Take me on a trip, I’d like to go someday

I didn’t realize I haven’t been updating until a friend told me to blog here already. And when I checked this morning, I saw that my last entry was over a month ago! I’ve gone on three vacations already (2 to the beach and 1 to the mountains). Almost through fixing all my requirements for another vacation. And celebrating the…

happy thought

Last night, before going to sleep, I turned on my TV and switched the channel to HBO. Stranger than Fiction was on and I switched right in time to hear my favorite line in my favorite scene from the movie. “I figured, if I was going to make the world a better place, I’d do it with cookies.”
