02.08.14: Moshi Moshi!
Hello, dolls!! 🙂 Happy Sunday!! It has been another exhausting work weekend and I am so glad I will be embracing Monday in less than 12 hours!!!! So my mind is preoccupied with anything relating to the big W next year…and I am guessing it is going to be like this for the next 9 months (AAAAH save me). I promised myself not to be the capricious about the entire thing, but I guess it is common nature you know? To sleep with one thought in the head and wake up with a brand new one the next day. So maybe, it is safe to say that I am driving myself…nuts. Haha
Anyway, so I was able to cross off something on my list and that is to let my favorite girls know about their importance throughout the entire process, and their participation. I wish I could have asked them personally, but yeah…my life is so awesome right now, God reserved something exciting for me instead. Since today is family day, let me share with you a post about the girls that I consider family.
I hosted a pre-Valentine’s day dinner for the girls. And as usual, we can’t not have a theme. I chose Japanese cuisine so I can practice on my sushi skillZ (yes with a Z haha) AND so we can play around with fun outfits..
We’ve decided to go for “Japanese Street Style” as our peg for the night, you will see our outfits later on but yeah…it was so much fun to be extra weird with my favorite girls! ❤
03.10.13 – Those kind of nights
Have you ever been in a situation wherein you felt hopeless and emotionally tired? And the only thing you held onto is the little faith that you have in your heart? I almost lost my grip a few days ago. But God has amazingly touched my life again and used the people that I love to help me get through something that made my life move into a better phase. When God uses the people that I love to get closer to Him, my soul gets nurtured in a different way. It’s like He gave a new meaning to the word “amazing”. So I spent half of my day thanking Him, and the other half by appreciating my family and friends more. Mother’s day is just around the corner, but the photos below will not transcend to it so I will just let the single word from the title above commemorate my Mom,and how grateful I am for the support that she has given me yesterday. I wouldn’t get through it without her, just like every single day.
He rarely goes home from work early..especially on a weekend. So when he does,we like to celebrate with nothing else but foooood ❤ 🙂

03.03.13: Happy Sunday
One fact about me – I have never been to a bridal shower. I am 22 years old and I feel like, bridal and baby showers are coming my way and I am nothing but excited! For me, B & B showers celebrates womanhood and all the love connected to it. As a fiancee, wife and a mother. So yeah, just imagine my excitement when Frances handed me an invitation to her bridal shower.
Started our Sunday by meeting up with our Angels in MD at church 🙂
Hello, Charm City!
Homemade slat scrub!! 🙂
Food….obviously! Had a light fare of American snacks during the party!! 🙂
Irina, Frances and I 🙂
A “Bow” kind of day! 🙂 Knowing Frances, I knew that everything will be cute and girly! 🙂 So tadaaaah, another girly girl day for me! 🙂
This ZARA pleated skirt has been with me for more than a year, and I haven’t worn it even one. So just imagine my delight when I was finally able to! Haha 🙂 #simplejoys
Top and Heels: Forever21
Some annoying self photos to show off my curls! 😛

12.24.12: Too much firsts in one day
I can’t believe how time just stabbed me in the back. I feel like I am just a blink away from the life that I have lived in for 20 years. Being here for a year made me realize how much I want to work hard to attain everything that I aspire for – as an individual, daughter,sister and a rightful person to be in someone’s future. My head is wrapped around the thought of me pursuing a future that is relevant to what is happening now. Sacrifices has to be made again and all I know is, if everything goes into plan, in God’s time – it will all be worth it.
A lot has happened that day. Playing in the snow was the mid-part of our first December 24,2012 in the States.
It would’ve been more fun and memorable if my siblings were with me. The excitement of my first snow experience just passed too quickly because my siblings were in my head the whole time. Somedaaaay.
Karen & I
Games x Booze x Great company
It was a different Christmas Eve celebration, but it was still, just like any other Christmas Eves – FUN! Minus the fambam..
One of the 2 photos with the back of my dress in it. Such a shame I forgot that my dress has a nice back detail while I was taking an outfit shot. Lol
It was a very unexpected night. The night ended with a first and I give all the credit to Rizelle, for being an awesome human being! 🙂 Haha
Wore this lovely dress from XOXO21
Peplum x Lace..how can I not fall in love?
Thanks to Charm for putting her finger on the flash,. Hence,the crappy lighting :)) Lol
Will try to keep up with all the back logs,
