Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

Summer Never Ends

08.11.2014: Welcoming Change

Hello, dolls!!! 🙂 Happy hump day! I woke up today with a weird feeling about today. I’ve been telling A how we have to embrace change if we want to grow. Although it hurts to move on from some of the things that we learned to appreciate, we have to leave room for better and bigger things. So I told myself that I can’t have a weird mood all day, so I claimed that we will receive good news before the day ends, and we did!!! A and I just looked at each other with utter amazement after that phone call that we received 5 min before we left our apartment. It’s a blessing right in front of our face, and all I can say is…great things happen those who believe in Him 🙂

I love how this week started, each of us received good news and boy are we excited!!! So anyway, here’s a post that will surely help me stay warm tonight. Cause you know….thinking about summer helps me forget about the cold weather…even for just a while 😉

I also miss the abundance of fresh produce during summer.

Summer is also the perfect season for my basil pesto. Basil is not very hard to find AND inexpensive.

When I think of blueberries I see summery desserts. Although it is also good as an additional ingredient to a savory dessert.

So to make my cheesecake even more delicious, I cooked some blueberries in agave and blackcurrant sparkling drink.

I am very lucky to have siblings who loves to make me smile (I am claiming it haha). My family would often send me care packages when I am away from them. They always send me clothes because they know I love dressing up! I still buy clothes from online sellers in the Philippines through my sister haha.
