So recently I have been posting some of my outfits on Instagram. I am not a fashion guru like most other girls out there. But I just like dressing up. My style is very laid back. I am more into comfort rather than going with the trend.  And I am obsessed with jeans, jeggings, and leggins. I feel sexy when I wear them. Maybe because I can flaunt my... ahem.. big butt which is my pride and joy haha! Feeling like J-lo huh? :P

BDJ BOX- November

I am so excited about this package because first it's from belle de jour, the creators of BDJ power planner. And since I decided I won't purchase their planner for 2013, I settled for subscribing to their beauty box called BDJ Box. I believe there are other companies that share the same propaganda as BDJ here in the PH but I am satisfied right now with their box. 

The shipping time was reasonable enough. Took only 3 days from their shipment. They also notified me when they will ship out my item which is a plus for me. That only means that the whole BDJ team has a concern with their clients and I think they are doing a great job considering they are just new with this kind of agenda. 

For this months products, I received 7-8 beauty products. All are skin care. The items looks promising. I am really really excited for each one. 

I made a video (because I was.. ahem... EXCITED!) showing all the products. I might do a review after I empty all of them :)

caution: I said "or something" too often lol

Over all I am very happy I subscribe to them. Just thinking about subscribing to their December box makes me pumped up :)

Hello there!

Hi there again blogspot! Wow! It has been forever since my last blog. As I can remember, my last post was about my plan of trimming my weight down. Well I did made a move in getting fit but my journey has been up and down actually. I would loose some pounds in few months only to gain some again. It's quite frustrating actually. But enough about that. Gonna make another post about that topic some other time.

It is already past 1 am here in Manila and I am so pump up still. Well, my eyes are sleepy but my mind is objecting. boo! Oh by the way, I joined this ever so famous bloggers community called Nuffnang. I have been seeing their advertisements in my favorite bloggers for so long and I wasn't really paying attention about them. But after reading some stories about it from my fave bloggers I found it interesting. I am not sure though about how they works but I just signed up lol. Oh well I hope I can be active with all their events or something.

Ok enough for this nonsense post. I really need to push my self to sleep now. I will try my best to update this blog more often though....

my latest pic. haha representing my vain self :))

So true!

For the longest time I stepped in a weighing scale this morning at my boyfriends house. And I was really shocked... No honestly I was a bit devastated and disappointed of myself (physically talking). My weight was 66 kgs! A very BIG HUGE difference from before. I admit I was not taking care of myself these past few months due to work and thinking too much! Maybe I over stressed myself that I begun to loose myself in some ways. My boyfriend noticed my bulging tummy and said that maybe its time for me to go on diet. Its not that he doesn't love me but he's just worried about my health.

Then it hit me..... Why do I stress myself from things that are not worthy at all. Forgetting to love myself is not an excuse just because of unnecessary things. Maybe its time for me to turn things around. To not think of other people but myself only. So this time I'm gonna try. I will TRY! I will make it happen!

Aim/goal: loose atleast 20 pounds in a month!

Impossible? Make it POSSIBLE RUBY!

Motivational Monday

Well I guess this blog wont be that typical "fashion/make up" blog after all. I was reading Galadarling's (my fave blogger) site last week and this things just popped to my mind:

  • Motivational Monday
  • Things I Love Thursday
  • This Melts my heart Friday
  • Spiritual Sunday

 Wow! I suddenly thought!..... My new categories for my blog! :)

Aside from being inlove with fashion, make up, clothes and all things girly, I have been a HUGE fan of inspirational things! May it be books, pictures, poems, blogs, as long as it will motivate me and I know will make a big impact in my life I will forever cherish it. I know those things aren't really my ideas but I am thankful for those people who invented it because it will help me put something  (worthy?) in my blog.

Anyway, on to my first list....

I have been a fan of Rhonda Byrne for years. Ever since she has published her first book, The Secret, my life has changed. To all those who have read the book you know what I am talking about...

So when I saw this book I was "ahhhh! another great book! a must have!" So without thinking I immediately pulled it out from where it was standing and bought it. I was sooooooooo excited that I cant even wait to go home and read it.

I love this book even more when I learned that this is a challenge book. Not your typical paragraph book that you will read and then that's it. This book is different because it has some activities that you need to finish for 28 days. How cool is that?! I am now on my 9th day but I can't wait to finish it!

My motivation for this is that this will help me enhance my gratitude skills. And will inspire me to write more thank you's to my gratitude journal. :)

 Oh plus I was also motivated to put this things in order haha!

Things I love Thursday

I miss doing this. I have been following the founder of this amazing activity for years! And in my old blog, I had joined in their bandwagon to simply having a beautiful life. The owner of that blog has sooo many activities that helps people accept and love- none other than his/her self. But my all time fave of course is TILT! It's a weekly activity where in you summarize all the things you love or made you happy or just being grateful about the whole entire week and come Thursday you just simply give it all a rundown. So here are all my loves for this week!

new things: lipsticks, bracelet and eyeshadow. seeing my sister: hearing her experiences. seeing her perform. her smile. talking to her. able to hug her. cleaned my room. foods. pictures and tumblr. able to blog again. getting compliments from our patients (because of my extraction). my boyfriend. my parents. wearing my old booties. wearing my fave bag. ideas for future blogs. inspiration from different sorts of people in the cyberworld. ordering half rice during lunch. cookies and chocolate from my lola. facial mask. new make up routine I learned. 100 pesos found under my bed.

You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your faceAnd show the world all the love in your heartThen people gonna treat you betterYou're gonna find, yes you willThat you're beatiful as you feel- Carole King

hmmm... that's about it for now. sigh! Being grateful really means alot to me. This is one way of making me feel better. Something to remind me that no matter how huge the burden I carry, there will always be that tiny hope that will always make me smile in the end. :) I am so glad I learned about this. Thank you GALADARLING!

Almost Nude

Ok so this thing got me excited that I really really really (as in REALLY!) wanted to do a short review regarding this lipstick. 

I didn't know that my lola (she's not actually my father nor my mom's mother. But she is the sister of my mom's mother so technically she is still my grandmother right? lol.) arrived last night. She had a long trip from Surigao (down south the Phil) to Manila. She just took a bus! I could not believe she can travel that far! she is like 70+ years old plus had some back pains here and there! whoa! 

Anyhooo! She gave my mom a few lipsticks that she had with her and told her to pick what she likes. Then my mom asked me to pick one as well. She actually picked this lipstick first but when I saw this I'm like "mom can I have this instead?!" I fell in love with the color! It is like the perfect nude color for me. I have the Soft Nude of Revlon but it's a bit lighter for my skin tone that you cannot even tell that I have it on :(

Almost Nude is from Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipsticks line. It is a bit darker than soft nude. Aside from the color, what attracted me the most is that it does not dry out my lips! Plus, it stayed on a bit longer that any of my Revlon lipsticks. It's so cream and so pigmented! I have only used it this morning and I am doing a review regarding this. That is how much I fell for this fella.

Can you tell how excited I was? hehe!

Friendly Locks

I think I am having some anxiety attacks lately. Arggh! I keep on getting some headaches. I could not sleep properly and I tend to wake up in the middle of the night! Huhu what is wrong with me :( Anyways, I wanted to make this entry just to keep my mind off from unnecessary things that keeps on popping my head!

I have been in search for the right products that will help my unruly and curly hair from being that somewhat perfect luscious locks. Hence, I bought a few products for my crowning glory that I am hoping will help me give that umph to my hair.

 I have been obsessing over this two products for the last few weeks! I have been using them alternately ever since I bought them. so far I'm having a good results.

This however is a new add on to my journey. I have read good reviews about this product so I wanted to give it a try as well. And since Dove has been getting alot of positive feedbacks from their hair care line, including me 'coz I have also tried their shampoo and conditioner as well so why not give this a try right?

Hoping for the best!

Holy Week

I had a week off last week so I spent it with none other than the love of my life lol!

His family invited me to join them in their family trip to Subic and Bataan. And since I am so free I come along with them =P

I went to their home town last Wednesday (April 11). And as planned we watched Wrath of the Titans. I'm not really sure on how I felt about that movie. I like it but not really in loved with it. I think it lacks more action or something. Anyway, I get to wear the necklace I bought at forever 21 though lol (segway!).

i bought these two days before our 2nd year anniversary. Oh we also watched The Hunger Games that day.  And guess what?! WE got hooked! urgh!
Come Maundy Thursday, we just stayed at their home the whole day.... Oh! we went grocery shopping for our Sat and Sun trip (to the BEACH!). I bought a yellow maxi dress. Really beachy! Then we also decided to visit some thrift stores. And I tell you their "ukay-ukay" is a bit expensive than manila! But I bought a cute floral dress and a pretty pink striped top. My boyfriend also bought 2 shirts from there. It was also his first time to enter and to buy something in a thrift store. haha he's so cute! Then we washed all the items we bought. Our first to do laundry together wee!

Holy Friday, we just bummed around their house the whole day as well. Do foolishness with each other. Just being random.

Then come Black Saturday. We left Laguna around 2 am. We scouted our way along EDSA to Balintawak to NLEX until we reached our first destination which is Bataan. We had a quick visit to his new born niece-Eli! That baby girl is sooooo cute and very fragile yet so quiet and friendly ahh! Moving along, we went further with our trip and decided to spend time  in Morong, Bataan. O-em-gee! I have never been so inlove with my country. I was so mesmerized on how beautiful the Philippines really is! The oh so green-ish surrounding plus monkeys everywhere and the crystal clear sea ahhh! sooo sooo starstrucked by everything! Like I said to them "Ang ganda ng Pilipinas ay talagang nakatago (The beauty of the Philippines is hidden)"

I got a tattoo! xD

Easter Sunday, we packed our stuff again then went on to go to Subic. We stayed at one of their relatives. Rest a bit. Had lunch. Then went to see Ocean Adventure! Yehey! Another plan that was a success lol.


she is just sooo pretty! from that picture she really is the queen of the sky hehe
wah my favorite pet in the world! they made my heart pump so fast hahaha! i love them!
with his pretty sister and cousin.
wish I can do this ahhh!
Then we went home on Monday. We had to take the bus because his family will go back to Bataan because they will get his niece to live with them in Laguna.

our first long road trip together!

I had really had a great time with all of our adventure and of course being with my baby and his family. Thank you baby and to his family of course for inviting me. Oh and we survived with our any digi-cam nor slr hahaha! all pictures were taken only from my boyfriends cellphone lol.

arm candy

I just love how people layer their bracelets. And before I wasn't really a fan of putting accessories on. I do put a pair of earings and that's it. But now I wanna try to be "in" lol!

Oh I just got those two woven?/braided bracelets today. I soo love them!  
I tried to match these to my colorful yet eccentric tee. I hope I did a great job hehe :P

We also went to our fave thrift store! Haul coming up when I sort out everything 'cause I got pretty much a huge amount of clothes! Well who wouldn't? Everything for only..........50 pesos baby! So yeah we went a bit over board lol!

Deep cleaning my brushes

I am feeling kind of productive today. Well slightly...

I kept away all my clean clothes that were newly washed. Then I am trying to finish cleaning my room coz it's a hot mess right now! Then I cleaned my brushes! Don't judge me but I haven't actually deep cleaned my face brushes for months!!!! I know I know! O Ruby you stubborn girl lol! But hey! I was too busy with work and during my days off I dont wanna do anything else but lay down all day in my bed just so I can relax and get some good rest.

this is what I use to deep clean my brushes. I am trying to use this all up so I can buy another one which is a baby shampoo.
Look how the water turned pale pink! goodness! all the dirt I've been saving wah! 
ahh! all clean and nice looking ^.^
Crap! I should learn my lesson! I have been having a poor hygiene for some time now. What was I thinking putting all those dirt in my face. Now I have been breaking out like no other arggh!!

I splurged!

I received my payslip last week and I have been really restricting myself into buying stuff. I want to save my money for summer because my boyfriend and I have been planning some getaways together because that will be our time to really bond with each other for a long period before he goes back to school. But then again after a few days I could not help myself but bought one item. And that one item lead into 2...then 3.... then 4..... so on and so forth!
The first temptation (lol) was this folded and hang tanned polka dot maxi dress. O-em-gee! I have been wanting this dress since last month and I finally got it! yippie!!! This was my first option for my cousin's wedding in Malaysia but I was worried to whether it will suit the occasion since this is a summer dress. So I passed it up and bought another one. I just told myself that if this dress will still be available next month (which is now- March!) then I will buy it. And I did! Can't wait to wear this :D

Tantanananananah! my second temptation. LUSH! This is crazy I know! And till now I am still a bit in shock and in question as to why I let 1,800 pesos go to these scented things. I don't want to think that I just wasted that huge amount of money because I wanted these items sooo bad! Especially, Retread. I wanted to feed my hair with sulfate and paraben free product hence I decided to go organic. I have read alot of positive reviews about this conditioner so I got one.  I am also obsessed with their solid soaps so I decided to add Honey I washed the kids and snowcake soap. I believe these will give my skin alot of smoothness and moister. Lastly I also bought aqua mirabilis this is a skin conditioner which works as an exfoliator.

I bought 3 bracelets and preview magazine when we went to Batangas. I've been eyeing those floral bracelets for so long but I haven't seen anything that has a cute design. But when I saw the two above, I knew I have to get them. The gold one though is just a plus because I found the charms so cute and pink! lol!
So excited to read this book. I'm gonna do a review after I read it. I love Rhonda Byrne's writing. How she can motivate people to have a positive outlook in life. I have been a fan ever since I bought her first book last 3 years ago which was the secret. Hope I'll learn something from this as well.

I also bought some stuff at surplus. That store is amazing when it comes with shorts. I mostly buy my shorts and tees there. Because it's cheap and have good quality. That beannie I got at khush oh how I love it!
I also got some hair care as well cause I am so eager to give life to my dull and boring hair. Plus that facial cleanser is for my boyfriend for when he stays over night in our house then he will have something to use in his face because he has a sensitive skin than I  -.-

Soooooo the verdict............ i'm so broke lol! I'm glad my boyfriend doesn't know about this site because if he did and reads this he'll be mad for sure lol!

Malaysia and Singapore Trip

Last month my mom, brother and I went on a trip to our neighboring country- Malaysia and Singapore!

It wasn't actually my first to got there. I went to both countries last year (November) with my friends on the other hand though. We went there mainly just for a good vacation and enjoyment.
with my friends last year!
But this time was different. We went there for a purpose. We will be attending my cousins wedding in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. But since JB was nearer in Singapore, we had to make an entry at Changi airport then make our way to JB. We arrived 3 days earlier for her wedding so we decided to make an overnight stay at Singapore first just for my family to experience a little bit of what that country was like.

February 23: First day in SG. arrive around 10 in the morning. Stayed at Hotel 81-Bencoolen. Have to wait for 12-1 pm so we can check in. While waiting we left our luggage at the hotel and went to look for a money changer and eat breakfast. We dined in at Mcdo lol since we have no idea were to go. Then we slept for a few hours then went to orchard for some sight seeing lol.

February 24: 2nd day. Went back to Orchard for some extended shopping. 

 So basically what we ended up doing there was S-H-O-P!!!! We only had a day to roam around so we have no time to go to Universal studio and visit the Merlion :(

My mom really love this country. It was clean and very discipline. While I love Orchard. Well pretty much because it's the shopping district lol! The only thing I hate about our trip was that there were so many WALKING! dang! my feet hurts like crazzzzy!

My cousins parents will be arriving the next day (Feb.24) so changi airport was our meeting place. My cousin's husband (Adam) and his friend drove all the way from JB just to picked us up then back to Johor bahru.

We arrived around 7-ish in the evening in JB. We stopped by at this chinese restaurant for dinner plus we will meet our cousin there. At first I was very hesitant and kind of worried because honestly I do not like Malay food. I am not a fun of curry nor strong spices. Good thing it was all chinese cuisine. Me liked!
Then after dinner we went straight to their pad so that we can relax because all of us were all tired and sleepy. And we had to wake up early because we will be going to Adam's hometown the next day.

their cozy place.

some filipino products!
February 25: 3rd day:  Went to Adam's hometown where the big event took place. Plus meet and greet with his family.
me with the bride.

Adam's parents with my family!
February 26: 4th day. The big day!

After the wedding we went back to their place because we will be going back to Singapore the next day. But Adam invited me to go with him and my cousin so he can show me his town even though it was already late in the evening. They let me see Dangga bay which was I think was a docking place for yacht but so many restaurants to dine in. It was so beautiful!
