Happy Mother’s Day!

Celebrated mother’s day a little late,  coz my  Mama chose to work her ass off that day! My typical hard working mum!

Chilled out a little bit in Vanilla Cupcake Bakery, before the 7pm mass going to start. Bought her and my aunt cupcakes. Sweet! Yummy cupcakes, btw! Then, attended that mass. After the mass, I strolled  a bit, as I still looking for a present for my Mama. I want to give her an Inboosta, but ridiculously hard to find. (Sigh) Stumbled in Odyssey store and found a much cheaper portable charger for her S3, coz she’s always complaining about  her phone’s battery being drained when she’s out, bought her also a cake which is her favorite; Starbucks The Classic Chocolate Cake. I’m such a good daughter! Hahaha! We had dinner at Crisostomo, my first time there, it’s a Filipino cuisine. Good food and affordable! That’s how we spent Mother’s day! Just almost a casual Sunday for us.

Late night dinner

Have your heard the phrase “pag biglaan natutuloy?” Well, it’s not really biglaan, but sort of. We don’t have any prior plan about this dinner. It’s kind of “hey let’s have dinner tonight” and finally kahit konti lang ang nakapunta, still, natuloy siya.

Meeting time is 8pm and meeting place is ATC. I only had one hour of sleep since (Share lang!) I arrived at exactly 8pm in ATC (and already starving), and no one is around yet. Stayed in Powerbooks and I didn’t wait that long for my friend Kenjie have arrived already. We chilled out and caught up at Tous les Jours while waiting for others.  Whenever I hang out with my college friends I always miss college. Our schedules are now hardly be available all at the same time and so many things happened since our graduation and last meet up. Our friend Gabby along with his girlfriend joined us and we decided to have dinner at Wistlestop inWestgate Alabang ‘coz it’s already late (so imagine my gutom, we already had dinner around 10.30 pm, i think).) In the restaurant, another friend of ours joined us. All we did was to caught up with each other and plan some weekend escapade and vacation. I’m so happy we’re able to have a simple dinner and long chat last night.

Oz: The Great and Powerful

Watched Oz: The Great and Powerful in 3D. Yeah! I know i’m going to love the movie, but still it makes me enthralled. As for the movie, no doubt it’s very magical, colorful, adventurous and unexpectedly funny. I like how the story goes, the plot is twisted.. didn’t expect that “one”  is going to happen (For spoiler go down). I feel like it gives justice to the original movie as this is just a prequel. And for the cast they’re all wonderful, entertaining and witchy. James Franco acts effortlessly, Michelle Williams looks so stunninga nd charming, Mila Kunis looking hot as ever and she did well on this movie, and the very beautiful Rachel Weisz add up a spice in this movie.

It’s the most enchanted movie of the year!

“A small-time magician arrives in an enchanted land and is forced to decide if he will be a good man or a great one.”

Spoiler!!!

Mila Kunis character Theodora is a good witch from the beginning of the movie who fell in love with Oz. Then her sister Evanora played by Rachel Weisz tricked her into believing that Oz is cheating on her, resulting she became the Wicked Witch.

Compulsive vs Sale

Shopping ❤

It happened with one week interval, I guess. Or may be two!

After hearing the *Mass, I decided to stroll before going home. It was supposed to be “window shopping,” but I really can’t help it! Ended up buying new stud ballet shoes and fiery red sling bag. But, so worth it! 🙂

Shoes: People Are People | Bag: Bayo

After my **work I went straight to MOA, but they still closed so I had my favorite frappuccino which is Java Chip at Starbucks first. Waited for one hour just playing Candy Crush. This time, I am not compulsive 🙂 Forever 21 is sale that’s why… until March 3! And this time I was able to managed my money and have control with myself. I only got three pieces, but I’m so happy with what I got. Sweatshirts with collar, cute studded shorts and ankle strap heels! Btw, top and shorts was 50% off. I feel so lucky that day!

LOTD: Mullet Dress

This is last Sunday and today is Sunday. I love Sunday! Hahaha! I went to my ‘inaanak’ first birthday party at Pasig. Her mom is also my childhood bestfriend. I have nothing to tell you about except that it’s so ‘layoooo’. Well, I live in the South, you know. Hahaha! This is the day before the I had my body massage. I need some relaxation after my long drive.

Monday Blues

I feel bad for ‘Monday’ because it seems that everyone hates Monday. Yeah, including me! Because Monday, meaning there’s schools and works, goodbye weekend. So, I think, we need a day between Saturday and Sunday, right? That would be cool, totally cool. Hahaha!

Anyhoo, before I kick my weekdays, I went to The Spa ATC with my parents. It feels so great they are body massage addict too. I love getting pampered, who doesn’t, right? I even make ‘patos’ the free massage in Burger King ATC and the  twenty pesos massage chair. I just love getting a body massage. This time I tried the Swedish massage, I always had the Shiatsu and Combination once. I now prefer Swedish than Shiatsu and will never have the Combination again, because it’s more of  STRETCHING. I ain’t that flexible anymore! Hahaha!!!

Then, we had snack at California Kitchen Pizza, I think everytime we go to Spa that’s where we eat. We ordered our favorite pasta Roasted Garlic Shrimp, CPK best-seller pizza The Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, and some desserts Strawberry Sundae.

A very good way to start my week.

LOTD: Too girlie dress

It’s a Satur-date with my MUM. Post Valentines date actually. I treated her to a movie(A Moment In Time, which I think it’s worth a try.Well, my mum is a Coco Martin fan). I’m gonna be honest, I actually have a hidden agenda. And I got it, btw. So, it works! Yeyy!

Anyway, I feels like I’m not use to wearing dress anymore. But it’s one of my resolutions to wear dress as much as possible. Yeah, it’s kinda confusing. Maybe, because I wear jeans five days a week from my work. And I declared weekends are my youre-not-going-to-wear-jeans-no-matter-what. I feel like I must take it seriously, so here it goes.

DIY: Ice Bag Shoe Stretcher

I bought these heels almost a year ago, for my Graduation Ball(Jeez! Time does fly. I still feel I just graduated from college). Anyway, what i’m going to do on this blog is to teach you on how to stretch you’re newly bought shoes or the shoes you can’t use because it’s a bit tight. Which in my case, tight shoes, because it’s one down size.  I already learned this long time ago where Multiply is still a popular site. I can’t remember the exact name of the Multiply site, so I cannot credit her or whatsoever. Let’s start!

Nude Slingback Heels

Nude Slingback Heels

I did it randomly last night. I don’t know what’s got into me and I decided to do it last night. Maybe, I need to do something while waiting for my download to finish.

Things needed:

  • Zipper bag
  • Shoes
  • Refrigerator (haha)

Steps to follow:

  • Filled the; 1/4 of the zipper bag with water
  • Place the zipper bag with water in the shoes you want to be stretch. Make sure it fills the entire shoes.
  • Put it in the freezer and wait until the water turns into an ice or overnight, just to be sure.
  • Remove the shoes from the freezer and wait for 10-15 minutes before removing the bag.
  • Lastly, wipe the shoes with tissue or clothes.

A little reminders:

  • Stretch your shoes little by little, for you cannot shrink it back. (Make sense, right?)
  • For some, it might not work permanently, but still give it a try. And just do it again if it’s shrink back.
  • It’s not recommended on suede shoes.

Hope this help you! Enjoy! We can now say goodbye to hurt feet.

‘Cause i’m leaving on a jet plane, don’t know when I’ll be back again.

I love Ben Affleck. And today, I just saw Armageddon. It is now officially one of my favorite movies. I thought it’s a drama/sci-fi movie, but it’s really funny on the first half. I really like Harry’s crew. No doubt this movie made me cry also! Such a touching movie just like the Pearl Harbor. I also noticed that Bruce Willi’s movies were beautifully made!

So, here is one of my favorite scenes from the movie. The song also stuck on my mind. I appreciate more the song right after I learned it was used in this movie. And no, i’m not talking about I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing of Aerosmith.

AJ singing Leaving on a Jet Plane to Grace before leaving:

 

The full song performed by Chantal Kreviazuk:

 

I’m … I’m …

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go
I’m standin’ here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But the dawn is breakin’, it’s early morn
The taxi’s waitin’, he’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go

‘Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

I’m …

There’s so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I’ll tell you now, they don’t mean a thing

Every place I go, I think of you
Every song I sing, I sing for you
When I come back I’ll wear your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go

‘Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, oh, let me kiss you
And close your eyes and I’ll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I won’t have to leave alone
About the times that I won’t have to say …

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go

‘Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

And I’m leaving on a jet plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

But I’m leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
(Leaving) On a jet plane

My must-have/wishlist pieces I want to own.

Hello folks! I’m back on the track. My last post before this was way back six months ago. Well, I decided to take a little break. As my school obligation making me busy back then. But, it’s all good now… I’m ready again to update my blog from time to time. And, JUST SO YOU KNOW – I already graduated from college. Yeyy for me! Anyway, this blog hiatus is officially OVER! *high five*

So, I did shopping last week. And I can’t remember when was the last time I shop for myself. I am so happy on what I got because it’s the pieces I’m longing to have. I’m so glad that I’m crossing out one by one what is on my list. On this blog, I’m going to give you my must-have/wishlist pieces I want to own. Just like the title suggest.

Here it goes:

1. White Button-Down Shirt (Crisp or not) – White button-down shirt is a must because somehow there’s one point in your life that you need to dress up very smart and trust you can wear it casually and very laid back. And here’s a twist there’s so many variety of button-down shirt (e.g. Sheer, Chambray, and Print) that is trending right now.

2. Little Black Dress – I believe every girl in this world know this. It’s an investment ladies! An LBD can be worn day or night. Just be sure when you invest one, it’s make you feel comfortable, yet fabulous. It’s worth your money so don’t thrift yourself when you buy one. And remember. When in your doubt, always wear black dress.

3. Good Pair of Jeans – Another worth paying extra. Find a pair where you can dressed up or toned down. A pair of jeans that fit well on you is perfect you will look great and sexy. According to Rachel Zoe(A Very Notable Celebrity Stylist) pants/jeans must skim to the ground unless they are cropped pants. I get her! Ladies, trust her she is a goddess!

4. Blazer – Don’t be afraid to wear a blazer. And when I say blazer the well-cut blazer. It’s getting casual now. No matter what color or style. It’s a basic you can play around. It’s really not hard to wear it, if you’re thinking it’s for office wear only well, you are wrong. Pair it up with tanks and jeans, or short and cute pair of top. Really, it’s really not that complicated. Give it a try!

5. Pencil Skirt – You just have to own classic pieces, because you will never known when you need one. Pencil skirt is subtle. Own a perfectly fit pencil skirt and you can model it in professionally scene and amazingly casual. Comfortable cotton blend with just enough stretch pencil skirt is really must have.

6. Cardigans Cardigans Cardigans! –  This I love so much. Cardigans or sweater are great for layerings and those time you don’t know whether you are cold or warm. Unlike trench coats, Cardigans/Sweater is wearable all season. A neutral shade goes with everything, and a longer style that hits at the hip flatters most figures. So far, this piece is I have the most.

7. Shirt and Tank Top – I’s the staple in women’s closet. Shirt and Tank are just simply essential, yet have a very big role in fashion. Classic shirt  can be dressy or casual depending on on what you choose to pair it with While Tank top can be casual or sexy  and easy to dress up using the right accessories and the right complimenting clothing choices. It’s not mandatory to have every color but keep as many color as you can. Black and White should be your priority, though.

There you go. The key to my must-have/wish list are simply a classic, necessary, basic, and essential. Shed some money on these pieces. It’s an investment, you can go wrong buying this pieces because it’s a timeless. Just always remember, when you invest make sure you feel comfortable and it fits very well on you. You don’t want investing or buying you’re not comfortable because it’s too tight or too loose.
