1 || One of the countless letters I write but cannot send

I really don't know what kind of sick game life is playing on me. Everytime one aspect of my life gets better, it seems to be different or even worse on the other side. Sometimes I ask myself  why and what have I done to deserve such. Do I really deserve it? It pains me. Every night I sleep with a whole in m heart and wake up leaving tear stains on my pillow. I cry. I cry even in my sleep. I cry even in my dreams. And I continuously ask why.



What is it with people coming into my life and leaving? Why is it that people so dear to me leave me even before they say their goodbyes? I always wonder what's wrong with me. I always wonder how wrong could I possibly be.



Is it because of the way I wear my rainbow-colored hair? Was I too blonde when I had my hair blonde that made you go the other way? Or is it because of my boisterous laughter? Or could it possibly be because of the trendy clothes I wear? I don't know but I never intended to repel you away from me. All I know is I am just being me! Does it hurt you that I am just being me? You can be you, too. I won't even judge.



And here I am again, hopelessly writing a letter that I can't even send.

Queen Fit of the Day || Dress Shirt + Gladiator Platforms ♥


How lazy could lazy dressing get? 

I have found the 7 signs of lazy dressing on the web which includes:

* finds comfort in all the casual clothing
* wearing the exact same outfit over and over again
* shopping at a particular shop for easy and comfortable finds
* buys clothes without trying them on- ONE SIZE FITS ALL
* weraing casual dresses and minimal accessories to formal events
* rarely (ALMOST NEVER) get complimented with your outfit
* ALWAYS UNDERDRESSED no matter what 

If you want to g and read further details about lazy dressing you can check it here.

I don't know how you dress lazily, dolls. But when I go to work, this is how I do it. First, stick to a basic color like BLACK. Choose a shirt dress or dress shirt the rests 3 inches above your knee. For my footwear, I didn't settle for a flat slip-ons nor sneakers. I opted for a red and black platform gladiators from my mama. My accessories are even kept at low- key by just wearing a pair of heart- shaped sunnies, a black bag (from mama again), a gold necklace and cuff. And YES, my dress shirt is thrift for only a 150 peso. Such a STEAL! 



Always remember, they don't have to know what you didn't spend.

Glitter kisses,


Queen Fit of the Day || Puritan or Quaker Collars + Black and White ♥


Do you ever go on days where everything just seems so dull, boring, monotonous? And that no matter how hard you try to CHEER YOURSELF, the frown just won't turn right side up. Well, I have and these dull moments open result to duller clothing choices. Chos!

Enough of this melodramatic intro. I actually wanted to wear black and white because I think this combo never goes wrong. You can just go ahead and throw all the black and white stuff and STRUT IT!

Here I am wearing a black doll blouse/ dress with Puritan or Quaker collar paired with a black pair of leggings which are both thrifted. I tied my hair in a messy bun to draw attention to the pretty collars in white. In order to create the illusion of looking tall, I wore a pair of white and beige wedges from a random street bazaar for 550 php and lastly, used my mom's black bag.

What do you think of my outfit? ^^

3 AM THOUGHTS (AND I CAN'T GET THEM OUT OF MY HEAD!)

Image result for quotes about fake friends

Adult(ing) is hard but you have to keep up with the pressure. And sometimes, you can't take it any longer. You just burst into tears and give up.

A couple of weeks ago, I vividly remember talking to a friend about a problem which I faked only because I really missed our time together and I only wanted to talk. I SWEAR! I  felt relieved after finding out we're meeting up but then I was frustrated when *** suddenly withdrew the help *** offered. I even made arrangements so *** won't cancel it but I prolly didn't have much luck- I FAILED! I didn't really mind it that much because I was on my way to watch a concert which was actually a very good diversion.

A week ago, *** sent me a message and I gladly responded hoping he'd open up about the help he offered (that wasn't really needed in the first place!). After my reply, *** disappeared! How frustrating and annoying is that?! I even kept on checking messenger hoping his response was there. I was actually thinking he ran out of load and wrote me via messenger instead but TO NO AVAIL!

Today, I was so busy with work (training and coaching people) that I barely have the time to check everything that's on my facebook. I only checked it to message people I needed to come for interview and demo classes tomorrow. Nothing more than that! I actually exchanged a few messages with another friend talking about  her birthday celebration next month and a trip next year. Going back to where we left off about ***. I received a message from *** and I responded sarcastically saying "WHAT?!" and then I was seenzoned. SAMOKA NIMU UG TRIP UY!

THIS POST IS IRRELEVANT. AND I AM GOING TO PUBLISH IT. SHARE IT TO FACEBOOK. AND IF BY CHANCE YOU SEE THIS ON YOUR FEED, READ IT 'CAUSE IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU AND IT'S ALL ABOUT HOW PISSED I AM RIGHT NOW! MAY LANG KA UG IKAW. MUKALIT LANG KA'G TUNGA KUNG FEEL NIMU. 

I FEEL RELIEVED NOW AND SLEEPY AT THE SAME TIME. I'LL GO AHEAD AND HIT THE SACK. BASTA AGOT GIHAPON KO NIMU. YOU OWE ME GIN TONIC AND A HAPPY MEAL.. :p

a1 in CEBU || Here We Come BACK Concert 2016



After 4 years, they finally came back to Cebu for an intimate concert with a trip down the memory lane as they sang a few of the band's greatest hits- LIKE A ROSE, EVERYTIME, HEAVEN BY YOUR SIDE and SAME OLD BRAND NEW YOU to name a few.

I remember my friend Therese, who tagged me an artice from rappler about a1's concert. I thought my fascination with the band has completely died but I was  wrong. I read the article hoping to find links on where to book the tickets. And I was actually hoping that Paul would join this time but didn't. It broke my heart! But he prolly has reasons that none of us would understand. 

They started selling the tickets online days after the announcement and I couldn't contain my excitement. I got my VIP tickets right away. I want to be in the middle row but it was SOLD OUT! 



I just had to get VIP tickets because when I watched the concert in 2001, I couldn't demand the VIP tickets from my folks. But now that I have a job- HELL YEAH! Thanks to my cousin, ate Venus who let me use her CC. 


I arrived really early  at the venue. The concert started at 8 pm but I was already there at 7:30. It didn't start at 8 though. I can't blame them if they didn't start on time. A1 had visited the country a lot of times and I'm pretty sure they have already heard of the so called " FILIPINO TIME".


Yes, I know! I am guilty of FAVORITISM. But what can I do? I really like him and I've always dreamt day and night of being his girlfriend when I was younger. FIRST LOVE NEVER DIES! ♥


The smile of a happy crazy fan. I seriously don't know if that's sweat or shadow. IDC!😂 I was that close to BEN.

I may have gone to watch the concert alone but  I believe it was the best decision ever. Because the moment the concert started, my 13-year-old spirit possessed me and I went craycray. Imagine me screaming, dancing and singing all by myself. And if I tagged someone along, I might be hated for leaving her 'cause believe me I tried to go up the stage but was stopped by a BOUNCER saying, "AYAW LAGE MA'AM!" I know! It's crazy but NEVER MIND! IDGAF! hahahahaha.

That would be all. I am working on the videos now and will share excerpts from the concert. I believe I recorded everything. Lol!

Fresh from the shower MAKE + SPARKLES + Work on a Saturday ♥



First of all, I would like to apologize for the messy background. I know you can see bags hung on my left, Cerelac box, soda bottles on my right and a very messy table. I recorded this in the dining area and as you can see the lighting is so bad. I  made use of the only light available at the moment without any aid from a ring light 'cause I really wanted this video to be as raw as possible. The room is messy because our house is under renovation and everything's just everywhere.

Watson's Beauty Pack Haul ♥


I went to Watson's two weeks ago to buy some face masks but I ended up buying more. I actually bought some beauty packs which I think is more of a budget life hack for someone who is on a tight budget like me. Well, it's not really tight but I just hate spending on something that is really pricey. 

I have been addicted to face masks recently and I just can't get enough. Etude house and Skin food really has the most amazing masks (I BELIEVE!) but they're just too expensive. They're actually very beneficial to my skin and your skin, too! Well, I am not getting any younger and so is my skin. Taking extra care of my skin and getting them extra hydrated is a MUST!

I got these mask for a  BUY TWO TAKE ONE PROMO for only 55 pesos. I got the pink packs  and got the yellow pack for free. I haven't tried them yet but the moment I do, I will all let you know.

CHERRY BLOSSOMS WHITENING MASK ♥

ROYAL JELLY NOURISHING MASK ♥

I don't really know how and what I feel about this. It's  nose pack that exactly looks like the Elmer's glue (with better scent) that you have to leave on your nose that helps get rifdof blackheads and whiteheads. I have used it and I'd give it a 3 stars out of five. I might make a separate entry for this. Oh and it's pretty cheap. It's only 18 pesos.

AQUA MOISTURIZER FOR ONLY 20 PHP.

BEAUTY FIX PEEL-OFF MASK FOR ONLY 22 PHP.

TONY MOLY NOSE PACK FOR 38 PHP.

#dolledupqueenonYOUTUBE || I am BORED AF!




This is not a make-up tutorial. I was just BORED AF after I arrived home on a Saturday night after my 10- hour shift. I decided to put make-up on and record it to test how my ring light works.

Queen Fit of the Day || Cut-out shoulders + Peplum ♥

Wearing jeans for the second time this week. I never really liked it but there are days where I feel like wearing them and I feel AWESOME! And this is one of those days.

STRIPES. Horizontal striped patterns never flattered me but I love wearing them eventhough they make me look wider. But today, I have discovered that if you wear striped tops, skirts or dresses appropriately, you'll be surprised how it can add oomph to your overall look.

Here I paired my acid wash skinny jeans with a cut-out shoulders, peplum top with blue and white stripes. The portion of my shoulders peeping created the illusion of slimmer arms and the peplum design made my waist look slimmer despite the horizontal lines.

SKINNY JEANS. Wearing a pair of skinny jeans has been really tricky for someone with a pear-shaped body like me. And more often than not, it UNFLATTERS me and SHAMESme even if no one really does that literally. So for girls with pear-shaped body like me, wear your skinnny jeans with a pair of wedges, platforms or stilletos. Choose a pair of skinny jeans that doesn't rest on your ankle. Rather choose something that goes longer from there to create the illusion of longer legs. NEVER MATCH YOUR SKINNIES WITH DARK COLORED SHOES. I REPEAT, NEVER MATCH YOUR SKINNIES WITH DARK COLORED SHOES!

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. 
For I have learned that the greater part 
of our misery or unhappiness 
is determined not by our circumstance
 but by our disposition.
-Martha Washington

Queen Fit of the Day || Bell sleeves + Denim Skater Skirt ♥



I'm twirling my skirt because... Mid-week. Holiday. DOUBLE PAY. Yay! Omg! Isn't that awesome?

How's your holiday people? I'm here stuck at work waiting for calls, writing this blog entry and watching "METEOR GARDEN". I knooooooow. Yes, I am multitasking and at the same time doing an ultimate throwback. Who doesn't love this Asian drama, right?

Anyways, going back to the main reason of this entry. I am glad that it didn't rain today. I have actually ran out of stuff to wear for the cold or rainy season. And I am just so excited I get to wear skirts again without freezing my legs.

Yesterday I posted about how I loved bell sleeves (and you can find post here). And now they are actually making a big comeback. It's classic! Never goes out of style and you can even find countless ways to dress it up with. Credits to my sister Princess again for taking these today. She's become better and better at taking my ootd shots.

Queen Fit of the Day || Bell sleeves and Denims ♥

The sun finally is out! I know it's only temporary but at least. We need a little sunshine and it's a pretty good time to take snaps of today's coordinate at work.

I've always loved vertical stripes with subtle hues. It makes your look sophisticated and cute without even trying. And I love bell sleeves, too. I remember sometime in highschool, this became so popular that Britney and J.lo would wear long bell sleeves and I watch them in awe. My  mom loved this trend, too. She thought that wearing it during that time didn't match my age but it didn't stop me. I wish I never gave them away.
