Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

11.30.2013: 22 days

Hello dolls! 🙂 It’s the first day of the month and I feel ambivalent about it.For the past few days, I’ve made things happen and did everything that I want to do, and I plant to keep it like that. I always get into this juncture when I am about to leave, like I try my best not to go that depressing sappy lane of “separation anxiety” or “SEPANX” as they call it now lol. I think I still have to muster up the art of putting a brave face for that “airport moment”, A and I did a great job this past October, and I want that to happen as well a few weeks from now. “It’s not going to be for too long, so there’s no reason to be sad”.

Anyway,this a “drama free” blog now, I am going to stop from there and go on with my last entry about my 23rd birthday! 🙂 BUUUUT before I do so let me share with you my #throwback for this weekend! 🙂

Since it now the first day of February, or the “love month” as hopeless romantics puts it, here are a couple of my favorite entries

I know for sure that I am not yet too old to go clubbin’ but spending a year away from home, and leaving again after less than a year makes me want to just be here…ALL THE TIME. Like, I turn down gatherings with friends if I know it will make me miss dinner with my family.

Anyway, I will get my solid independence in less than a month, no biggie! haha

I find joy in cooking. Lately, I’ve found myself hosting parties at home just so I can cook many dishes in a day. I don’t care how stressful it is, or how it eats up my entire day, I just want to be in the kitchen and create something delicious for the people that I love ❤

My incomplete birthday food. I cooked “comfort foods” for everyone cause it was good night to relax and have wine with everyone. I did not want to be too stressed out for my own party.

We do not have decent photos during our burger nights, the piggies gets too excited when they see (and smell) the burgers that they just dig in and start eating!!!
