11 Things About Me

No Comments »

I've recently been nominated for LBA (Liebster blog Award)! Thank you so much to Angela of http://fivefeetofawesome.blogspot.com :) 

But first, what is this LBA? 
"Liebster Blog Award (LBA) all about? It’s an award given to bloggers who are new and starting out (or old, even,) typically those with less than 200 followers. This is a pretty neat way of getting your blog noticed. So there are rules for this:

1. If you are tagged/nominated, you have to post 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions the tagger has given you and make 11 questions for the people you are going to tag.
3. Tag 5-11 more bloggers.
4. Tell the people you tagged that you did (through comment, personal message, etc.)
5. No tagging back!
(The relevance as to why it’s 11, I have no idea.) Alrighty then, now that’s clear, let’s start! "

11 Things About Me!

1. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
-Hmmm, this is one question that wouldn't take me five seconds to think about, anything minty! I don't know where i found my love for mint but if I were given a chance to eat just one flavor of ice cream in my entire life, it sure would be minty!

2. Where is your next travel destination?
-Hopefully I get to tour around Palawan, Philippines. 

3. What’s the best way to win your heart?
-I really can't say what could win my heart. That's something I want to keep to myself so boys can figure it out themselves! (jk)

4. What profession have you always admired?
-Teachers, of any kind. I'm an education major and I realize more and more how hard it is to teach in front of a room full of students geared with a lot of patience, humility, 

5. What is something that you refuse to share?
- Refuse to share negativity. Kill negativity!

6. Have you ever been to a live concert?
-Yes!! I haven't been to a lot though #priorities lol.

7. If you were exiled, what country would you choose as your new home?
-I'd still pick Philippines so that I won't be a foreigner and with our government.. I could still have a chance to get away from being exiled.

8. What was the last social faux pas you made?
-OK so I googled what faux pas is and my answer would be.. laughing super loud in a public supposedly quiet place? I hope answered it right! haha

9. How much do you tend to swear in public?
-Uhm... I just make sure my voice can't really be heard by everyone, but yeah, I tend to swear a lot in public. Not proud, though.

10. To what would you like to devote more time?
-STUDYING. Still in undergrad and I badly want to finish with it already and proceed to the next stage of my life! Problem is.. I often get bored in everything that I do. :(

11. What song best describes your life at the moment?
- One of the hardest questions ever haha, seriously can't think of anything so I'll just pick my happy song, Dark Horse by Katy Perry!! Actually I just love the rap part of the song haha!

Raining Sunshine


Terranova top, Cache Cache knitted cardigan, Sabellissima skirt, Topshop shoes

Brought out one of my favorite knitted clothing 'cause the rain has showed up again. It's the perfect weapon for the cold weather since it's not only comfortable but it also adds a bit of drama to the outfit. Wore this to a quick trip in school and to grocery shopping with my family. 

Have you noticed that the rain has been a bit nocturnal lately? It only rains at night and I don't know how to feel about it. I'm quite happy I don't have to stress about whether is it going to flood before the sun goes down or not (well since I'm only up until 6 this term).  However I'm quite bothered for those who have night classes/work. I think it's more dangerous since it's already dark and most of them are tired already. Anyway, even if it rains I hope it won't be anything like last year's Yolanda. 

Stay safe and dry! :)

I recently stumbled upon this video of Anna Akana from YouTube. For all the girls out there, who loves using make-up, like me (but only minimal for me since i still don't know how to put stuff correctly and 'cause HEAT) and also to those who don't use. The message of this video is so powerful and it might change how you see yourself. I'm not going to talk about it anymore so, WATCH!!! It will make your day :)

Cotton On top, Topshop pants, Forever21 necklce, Terranova cap, Vans shoes

Today was unusually hot despite the fact that it's already July. July is usually the time when the skies are almost always grey and most people would start wearing sweaters, jackets and rain boots. Not that I am hoping for the sky to relentlessly cry and get all gloomy but looking back, around this time of the year I would see a lot of wearing thick clothing already, I would be stressed on how cold it is in the classrooms of Andrew building, and how will I survive the day by not getting wet and damaging my shoes. 

I'm so glad I wasn't fooled by the gloomy skies earlier this morning. For the past few days, I kinda noticed that most of the time, it will be gloomy in the morning but the moment we reaches midday, it's going to be the "hot kind of torture", literally. It's going to get too hot and it's impossible not look haggard the entire afternoon. So my answer to the hot weather? Since our school's kind of strict with the dress code(no spaghetti straps and anything too see-through), and add the fact the i have huge arms ( insecurity :-( ), I wore a basic shirt, pants and of course shoes. That has always been my combo but I put a twist into it by adding a cute cap and accessories to not make it look boring, and look how I styled my shirt, I thought it would look weird at first but then I tried it and viola! It's not my favorite thing to do to spice up a shirt! Tuck in only the back portion of the shirt and do nothing with the front part. It's unusual and new! That's actually the key to styling an outfit, just be creative on how you're going to style it. Style it differently from others to do away with mediocrity and to start a new trend! It may look weird for some but there will always be a few people who are going to appreciate it.

Blockmates! L-R: Jacque, Sab, Nur, Me, Clara, Joyce 


L-R: Sab, Jacque, Ela and I

Zara knitted sweater and pants, Anne Klein watch, Topshop flats

Just got back from Capuchin Retreat Center at Lipa, Batangas for my third recollection. Since it was in Batangas,  I thought it was going to rain and would be really cold, hence the sweater but, It wasn't that cold and it didn't rain.. But on the bright side, the heat was... bearable (at least for me). 

Anyway, sharing time! So I thought our third recollection which we call LASARE3, would just be like the first and second recollection we had during our previous years in college, but it was kind of different this time.  It was really fun and memorable! Capuchin Retreat Center was like a paradise. It was so relaxing there, surrounded by nature, away from the city, away from the problems. Wish it was longer, though. Nonetheless, I'm going to remember the experience since I got to meet new people, built closer relationships with friends (hi roomies + blockmates), and most especially, I got to reconnect with God again :) Made me realize being hard on yourself and your life would just push you farther away from God because you're forgetting that God has a will for you and that He loves you.

Bench shirt, Robinsons Dept. Store pants, Converse shoes, Forever21 sunnies, 
Anne Klein watch, China Glaze nail polish, Edge Co bracelets

Today was one of those days when I wanted to break away from looking too dainty and nice. So when I saw this shirt from my dad's closet, I grabbed it right away. I'm quite thankful that I fit into some of my dad's clothes because whenever I'm feeling lazy, I'd often find the perfect shirts in his closet that would be loose yet comfortable enough for me to wear. Not to mention that today was pretty darn hot and wearing a cardigan or anything long sleeves would be a no-no!

I've experienced the strongest earthquake in my entire life! I'm praying so hard that there will be no aftershocks :( Let's all take time to pray to our God (whoever your God may be) to make us all safe. Hope you guys are doing just fine!

It's a Yes, a No, No Maybe

Okay first of all, I apologize for the 'decorative' trash on my pictures. I was in a hurry that's why I wasn't able to notice the trash around, and the the pictures are too bright. I wasn't able to check if the photos are nice to look at or not. I'll try my best next time to find a nicer place to shoot my outfit photos and double check my pictures.

 Mint top, Sabellissima skirt, Forever 21 necklace, Cotton On jelly shoes

Okay, I'm kind of sad that this playground in our village has trashes everywhere.  I mean there are a lot of trash bins around the place but it seems that walking 20 steps towards the trash bin is a burden to some people. It's such a waste for us people, to be given complex minds but never seem to use it 100% all the time. I'm not perfect but I always TRY my best not to litter. I'm a sucker for nice surroundings and it's my number 1 pet peeve are those who can't keep their trash to their bags/ those who just throw it wherever they wanna throw it. I mean come on, can't you at least care for our dying earth? I'm sorry for the rant, but I'm really just disappointed with some people. 

Say HI to Yanni everyone!! Every since my baby sister started going to school, our mornings became busier! Everyone in our house needs to wake up early in the morning just for everyone of us to get her to school on time. Thank God I don't have morning classes because I'd be dead tired if I did due to lack of sleep!

Anyway, hope you liked this!!!
til next time, thea<3
