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.
