Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

we get what we give

01.28.2011

It was a super long day for me! ๐Ÿ™‚ After a week,I was finally able to sleep for 8 hours! Thank God our review class was rescheduled to 1PM ๐Ÿ™‚ But the drawback was, not having a fully committed day for learning. PPG was so hyped during our break time. As in we were acting like grade schoolers! :)) Mom picked me up at school to go to Serendra and Tiendesitas ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh,shopping! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Birthday “salubong” of my sister Chella ๐Ÿ™‚

Nico and I

Don’t you just love Beauty’s lips?

Yet again, Diane missed another epic night ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anniversary next month girlies!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Aaaah, foine. I’m the only one who remembers it ๐Ÿ˜ :))

Not a good shot but worth posting because of my shoes :)) hahaha.

I don’t what’s with me and this leopard prints lately. I indulged myself on florals for the past 3 months,and now leopard..aaahh ๐Ÿ˜ :))

I was so amused when I saw Jho’s outfit! She was on animal prints as well :)) I just love it when we go out and our outfits correspond without talking about it :))

It was a great night! ๐Ÿ™‚ A memorable one actually. Dancing and drinking with the girls! ๐Ÿ™‚ Still not a fan of Jose but loving those Artic greens! ๐Ÿ™‚

I find it really weird that I don’t even have a single photo with my Sister! She was too busy with her friends and so was I :))

This is what I have left.. theย silicon case that I bought in Singapore for my iPhone. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Someone stole my iPhone that night. Its really heartbreaking,especially the fact that it got lost on our table. Not on the dance floor, not in the restroom, but on our table. So just imagine my frustration to know who the culprit is.

I didn’t let it ruin my night though. The sooner I realize that its gone, the better. I can’t do anything about it. At some point, I find it weird that it didn’t get through me that much I don’t know why,but predominantly I feel blessed.

On our way home, I’ve realized that at the end of the day its just a phone. A material thing thatย satisfiesย my wants but it doesn’t provide what I really need. (okay,fine I know I might sound phony or something, but it really is..truth be told, I am yearning for a new phone already, I just don’t know what to get)

Anyway, I feel so blessed because I lost it without getting hurt. What I lost is replaceable, so I don’t find the need to fret about it for a long time, nor cuss and waste my energy on cursing the bandit. Its just that, whoever that person is,may he find peace in his heart. I know for a fact that one day he will realize the gravity of what he did and his conscience will hit him/her. That person just lost a potential fruitful friendship with me. There’sย nothingย worse than losing a friendship or a budding one perhaps.

1.29.2011: Chella’s 17th ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy 17th Boobie!! : I love you ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your remaining teenage years ๐Ÿ™‚

Family had dinner in Bono Yaki ๐Ÿ™‚ We all love Japanese food!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Price is reasonable for a buffet! Food wasn’t exceptional though ๐Ÿ™‚ But I loved the ambiance and the fact that you’ll be “grilling”. Don’t get your hopes high if you see the word “smokeless” when going to this place. You’ll still smell like a stick of barbecue when you leave.

Bono Yaki servers on their pink party hats singing the birthday song for my sister ๐Ÿ™‚

Pink cupcakes for the birthday girl ๐Ÿ™‚

Wonderful Parents ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

This is why I love celebrating birthdays ๐Ÿ™‚ We all spend the day together..and everyone’s so nice to each other :))

We then headed to Eastwood to walk and do a little shopping ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t remember the last time I went to a mall without buying anything. Aaah, it really isย therapeuticย :))

It was a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ Despite of me losing my iPhone..and someone ๐Ÿ™‚

Still, I could manage to smile and laugh and be grateful of what God hasย offeredย to my plate this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Perfect time to learn,to show gratitude and to contemplate ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a beautiful life โค

spaced out.

Shopping day with Sister and Mom! ๐Ÿ™‚ What a way to spend the day!

I am soooo lovin’ my header. I made it when I got home from school. Izzo…ME โค (feeling mode) HAHA. But hey, I exerted a lot of effort in that header! ๐Ÿ™‚

Forever 21,Love21.

Going to Forever21 is like going to a toy store.Its huge,it will give you this certain rush,you’ll find yourself being soย uncontrollable and end up persuading your Mom to buy you that new “toy”.ย ย ย I could still remember how my parents would tell my siblings and I to only choose 1 toy when visiting a toy store, that would usually fall on a Saturday every week.They would let us roam around for an hour or until we get tired and ask to leave. As a kid, I was never a fan of Barbie dolls, I’m the kid who’s in isle 11,where the board games are located or in isle 3,the “lutu-lutuan” section. I never enjoyed spending so much time in toy stores, give me 15 minutes then I’m done. But who’d have thought that after almost a decade, I would feel like a kid again,begging her Mom to drive her to that big toy store.

An hour is not enough when you’re in Forever 21.Upon entering the entrance,remember to take a deep breath,feel the rush and act like you’re a kid who just ate a bag of sweets. After an hour and a half, a couple of annoying mirror shots and 3 garments,I finally made it to the cashier. Here are the 2 babies that I played with ๐Ÿ™‚

1.

I super love this top! The fabric is so soft! The color..everything! And the fact that I could play with it..gaaah! I think I’d be wearing this..a lot. In different styles of course! Heehee ๐Ÿ™‚

2.

Dark gray Knitted Cardigan ๐Ÿ™‚

I super love this!! I love its versatility! ๐Ÿ™‚ And the beadings,gaaaah. Need I say more?

I remember seeing this by accident.Aww, this baby is meant to be mine. Heehee! โค

I shopped at CacheCache too! They have realllly nice items. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, when I got home I had to attend to some acads stuff. I was so inspired to study! haha. I think I’ll shop before my Comprehensive Exam…that’ll surely help. :))

Now,I have to arrange my closet again.Aside from its such a mess,my closet is almost full,mind you that Daddy just expanded it 7 months ago plus I already set aside a pile of clothes to be handed down to I don’t know?Who needs any btw?I’m sensing a garage sale with the girls again!heehee.I feel like I have to amplify my closet real soon.

What is…carbfest?

I ate a lot today, and I feel guilty. Naaaaat ๐Ÿ˜ :))

After indulging myself with carbs(pizza.pasta and twice baked potatoes- enough to be full until dinner time) after class, I picked up my girl friend Bian for some camera lovin’! ๐Ÿ™‚

Bian bought an Instapix (?). Izz like a Polaroid..or I think it is. I dunno, but izzo cool. I’m so happy for my Girl! She really wanted one! And I think, I’m gonna buy one..someday. Not my priority. I’ll buy one when I’m ready to have a photo wall. Or should I say, if I have the time to create a photo wall.

Went to Quiapo Church after. It’s so overwhelming to be with friends who can share this moment or happenings with me. The feeling after sitting and talking to Him? – PRICELESS. There was never a time that I sat there and never felt better after talking to Him. ๐Ÿ™‚

..and oh, I was with my friend Eldrin the whole day. Izzo fun to be with him,I just can’t stop laughing when my driver teased him. ย :))

Such a funny day! โค

we are spreading out.

Hello Friday and Saturday! You’ve been great!:)

Friday: 01.14.2010

Met up with the craziest girlfriends ever, Zion and Jho! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Went to Hidalgo for some camera lovin’. I think Jho’s frustration of having a DSLR justย skyrocketed when we got there :)) Don’t worry Gelay, you’ll have yours soon! Just be a good kiddo to Mama Gins and you’ll be having that Canon D500 (OMG not sure with the model) in no time ๐Ÿ™‚ We then went to Quiapo Church, I am used to going there every Friday or every time there’s an opportunity for me to visit. My Dad would usually bring us there on a Friday and eat afterwards, so I kind of adapted it from him.We had to wait for my driver in this cellphone shop for almost 15 minutes.Boo. He was parked somewhere far.I had a hard time contacting my driver due to some network difficulties,so we had to walk and huddle with a bunch of people..ย not that I’m complaining. Lastly, we went to Trinomaย to meet up with Zion’s lover. Heehee! ๐Ÿ™‚ All in all, it was such a fun-filled day with TF3 โค

Saturday: 01.15.2010

PPG: My day started with ze lovely people in my life. I arrived later than our call time coz..first,I slept reaaaally really late.second,I had to wait for my driver to pick me up and third,I hate arriving first..just like Choi. HAHAHA :)) Anyway, we conducted an interview in a restaurant in Binondo,Manila for our Human Resource Management class. It went pretty well ๐Ÿ™‚ Afterwards,we went to Greenhills to accompany Choi. And as expected, I couldn’t resist not buying anything. :)) Heehee. If only I have enough time to shop,I would. I had a great time talking to Leigh, I actually miss our heart to hearts. โค I had to leave early to pick up Jho and Bian. I dropped by to National Bookstore to buy a book and get my BIR-ID laminated. I remember being there for only 10 minutes, but upon reaching the exit door, it’s already raining hard. Lucky for me, I have a driver who acts like a bodyguard and yaya combined! Heehee! He was already waiting for me with an umbrella, but to our dismay the rain was so hard that a huge umbrella can’t even save me from getting wet. Boohoo.

Bian, doing my nails ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it when my girlfriends pamper me. I have the best girlfriends ever! โค

Our only complete picture ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ™‚

Dropped by at Fullybooked,High Street first to check some books and cutie notebooks! Will definitely go back next week with the girls ๐Ÿ™‚ We just couldn’t resist books, well at least for some of us. Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank God,there were only a few people around. :))

@ 7th HIGH ๐Ÿ™‚

We made it happen Gelay!! โค So glad we did!! ๐Ÿ™‚

HAHAHAH! We wereย imitatingย this guy, I think he’s an Arab or something (if you know me so well, you would probably know what I felt when I saw this guy. I feel so EVIL LOL ). Anyway, we were mocking him the whole night because of 2 things.First,he is “he”.Second,his dance moves. He attempted to dance with us, but instead, we made this silly dance moves to make him leave :)) As in I was surprised he did not get mad or something coz what we did was really offending. :))

“there’s no other way but to move forward” – Choi ๐Ÿ™‚

Streetlights baybeeeeh! โค

Went to Mister Kebab to grab some yoghurt shake and special chelo kebab!! โค

I just love eating there! Mega GVs!! ๐Ÿ™‚

My girls slept over at home. Heart to hearts โค

Woke up…ALONE! hahaha. They all went home na when I woke up ๐Ÿ™‚ Today, is such a relaxing day. Was supposed to go out with ze family today but I decided to just stay at home..watch Laguna Beach (again..just because), listen to some music,Tumblr and wallow in (insert that something that can’t be mentioned just yet).

Anyway, all in all it was a great weekend โค

I know of someone who had a better one. Hahaha (I hate myself for mentioning this,but I realized someday this will come out handy)

..and just in case you’re wondering where Zion is? Well, the bitch ditched us! Thanks a lot. So I’m kind of giving him a hard time right now. Go,eff yourself DITCHER.

Hope you had a great weekend too, loves! โค

Hello,again.

So yeah, I decided to switch off the privacy of this blog. As I was reading some fashion blogs, I felt the urge to create one..again, for the nth time. I have countless blogs already, blogs that I despise actually. So instead of creating one, I decided to “promote” this blog instead. I’m sticking to this blog,forever.

Here are some blogs that I posted on Tumblr. They are worth remembering so I’m including them in this safety box. And oh, if you’re wondering why not blog at Tumblr instead..Well, Tumblr is more of a “I’ll-reBLOG-this-coz-this-is-what-I’m-feeling-as-of-the-moment”,or “Twitter..with graphics”. (click the links to read the blogs or something something about it HAHA ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm in love with shopping Tumblr post.
