Aaaand, I'm finally blogging again! I've been very lazy to update this for the past days mostly because of my never ending relationship with school and because of my self-esteem problems. Anyway, I am so relieved that sweater weather is going to stay a little longer (even if I hate being cold) because then I can just wear long sleeved clothing and cardigans. Who doesn't love sweater weather, anyway? With the climate we have, I'm sure most people are enjoying the cold breeze!

I've recently read Lang Leav's book which is Love and Misadventures and it wasn't hard to fall in love with it. Everything she wrote on her book had my heart stabbed over and over again, refreshed painful memories and awakened every bit of me. I love everything in it and it got me so inspired to write poems again. I wanna share with you one of the poems I love the most:
"Shrinking in a corner,
pressed into the wall;
do they know I'm present,
am I here at all?
Is there a written rule book,
that tells you how to be—
all the right things to talk about—
that everyone has but me?
Slowly I am withering—
a flower deprived of sun;
longing to belong to—
somewhere or someone"
Hope you liked it,
'til the next, <3thea

For the past month, everyone has been going crazy about the movie Frozen. I've been hearing people sing their soundtracks, seeing memes of Queen Elsa, pictures of cutie Olaf and a lot more. Well I can't really blame them because the movie's just sooo nice! I cried every time Anna sings and goose bumps everywhere when Elsa created her ice castle. Sorry if this is kind of a spoiler to the people who still haven't watched the movie.. i promise that's all I'm going to say and I suggest you watch it now!
I learned so much from the movie. I know it's a kiddie movie and it doesn't really have a deep plot, but I guess most people, if not always, learn from the things that are actually just right in front of them. No need of thinking and looking deep, waiting for signs, (which by the way doesn't CLEARLY work for me, because I'm the type of person who gets lost when pressured to think deeply) because the answer is right in front of them already. All they need to learn (including me of course) is to just accept it 'cause I believe that nothing is coincidence in this world, everything is connected :)

2013 has been really bipolar for me, nevertheless, I am grateful for everything, to everyone that has ever happened to me and crossed paths with. I'm very thankful for those my friends, new friends, few acquaintances and those who aren't still my friends, who all gave me hope with their simple acts when everything seemed so crazy in my life. Small acts give the most impact (that's mostly the highlight of my year lol). And for the challenges I have surpassed in 2013, and those that are still waiting for me for the year 2014, uhm… Hahaha, I know it'll all be worth it in God's time.
See? A simple movie just helped me create a very long post! It's a reminder for us that life does not always need to be complicated for us to learn… Most of the time, it just really needs to be simple. Learn from all experiences, let it go and apply. That simple. Learn not to dwell on the past and things we can't get a hold of, instead.. Yeah, I should probably learn that this coming year :p
I hope you guys are having a great year ender!! May your 2014 be filled with God's blessings and be fun!

Didn't have time to take pictures outside so I have to settle for this. Sorry for the bad quality!

Found this pair of shoes in our attic earlier ,and I just had to wear it again. I forgot where It's from though, since it was my mom who bought it :( I loved this heels so much, it's so pretty and it's studded! My mom has great taste right?! I remember wearing this to my last prom. Studded heels were the bomb way back in 2010!
Last day of 2013 tomorrow, are you ready for the fireworks?! I am sooo ready

It has always been my joy to dress up for church since it's the only day wherein I am required to wear a dress. Plus, I like seeing my mom smile when I dress up for sundays 'cause it's the only day we both agree on what I wear (HAHAHA) :p
How was your sunday? Hope you had a blessed one :)

To cap off the last days of 2013, I spent it by having an unexpected trip with few of my high school batchmates by going to Sky Ranch Tagaytay. I knew it was going to be cold there, but I didn't know it was going to be colder. I wish I did layering to match the coldness of Tagaytay, haha the title of this post isn't really true since it bothered us, very much :( hahaha

We only got to ride Vikings since we couldn't stand lining up for another hour just to ride the Ferris Wheel, plus we were all chilling already, so we decided to just go on a roadtrip and eat :D Here's some of our photographs during our trip.

I've mentioned a few posts away that I had a shoot for an online shop, and this look is just one of my favorite looks from it. This is my first time to wear this kind of green. As you can see from my previous posts, if I'm not wearing black, I'm certainly wearing vibrant colors. So this is how I'm going to wear gloomy colors again... Just like how my friends always tell me, still girly and sparkly.
I'm wearing Juiceified from head to toe! Go visit the shop now and look for some affordable finds :)
Anyway, I'm so happy I can guiltlessly sleep for 10 hours straight! However, I think my mind is forever on school mode that before I sleep, I still panic a little bit.. that I maybe have a paper due tomorrow that apparently I still haven't done, review something or just simply have to wake up at 5am again throwing me back to Zombie Wonderland again. I don't know if it's just me.. Are you feeling it too? Do you love sleep as much as I do? Hahaha, ok, I think I've overly shown how much I love sleeping in this post.
'til the next, <3 thea
Merry Christmas everyone!!! It's our favorite day of the year again when people are with their loved ones, happy children receiving gifts from their ninongs and ninangs, and most importantly, when we can all pig out without hesitation. Haha, I know these things just few lovely reminders that we are blessed are we are loved by those who are around us, but I hope we still haven't forgotten about the true meaning of Christmas.. That Jesus Christ was born so we could all be saved. :)

So, anyway, I had a shoot just about a week ago with a good friend Lloyd Labra, and I really love how the photos turned out to be! :) I actually wore this outfit to Zedd's concert last December 12 before our deadly finals. Wanted to deviate away from all the black and white that's going to fill the whole arena that's why I opted for a denim + floral outfit. Plus I was so stressed in school so I shooed away gloomy colors. Dressing punky, grungy and sexy would be a no-no to my stressed brain. I can't even begin how stressed I was during the last days of the term.. Exams everywhere, I'm just so thankful it's all over and now I can finally marry my bed! Lol
Ok, I know I am a few hours late for greeting you all a Merry Christmas but I hope all of you had or still having a great Christmas!
A big thank you to Lloyd Labra for taking these photos!
Hope you liked it, 'til the next! <3thea
