what would you do if you are faced with a mountain?

“If you are faced with a mountain, you have several options. 
You can climb it and cross to the other side. 
You can go around it. You can dig under it. 
You can fly over it. You can blow it up. 
You can ignore it and pretend it’s not there. 
You can turn around and go back the way you came. 
Or you can stay on the mountain and make it your home.” 

- Vera Nazarian

my fam bam went to Davao few months ago.

blue and ethnic print

Finally. An outfit post with my new hair cut :D

Went out with the man yesterday to see a movie. We watched FWB  ( i know, super late na para panoorin. haha :D ) while I was munching with nachos and biggie iced tea from Wendy's.

What I wore yesterday


My TWENTY PESOS owl ring.

My nails

We ate at banapple's GH. 

the man ordered  Fettuccine Magnifico ( na pwede mong ulanin ng parmesan cheese :D ) and Ice Mocha.

and I ordered Terrific Tuna Sandwich with potato chips.I love the tuna sandwich super yummy plus the crisp cucumber and  lettuce pero yung potato chips ummmm I dont like it.( yung potato chips na pwede mong bilin sa suking tindahan mo sa halagang 5 pesos, ito yun. Bibili ako nun tapos post ko dito. haha. ).
I'm craving for Myster-reese's wicked pie but they dont have it. (sayang.tsk. )

btw, the ethnic print tunic is from my mom . I found it on the pile of her old clothes ( at feeling ko 60's-70's pa to, kasi yun pa yung panahon na payat sya. haha :D )

somethin' fishy

no, this blog post is not about the restaurant in Eastwood, Libis QC.
it's about  the song  I accidentally discovered on YouTube.

"a fishy little song"

Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever find her
the one that God's chosen for me
and what if I find her but she doesn't like me
I guess that is prove destiny but I should know better
 the sea is much wetter with plenty of fish as to see for you and me
and I know my Father, has scoped out the water
and picked out a fishy for me.

ang cute noh??? haha :D

fish din naman ang usapan,
let me share some of my SOOC ( i just put my blog title of watermark purposes :D ) shots when my fambam went to Manila Ocean Park :D

five inches

I cut off 5 inches of my hair yesterday :D

I love how easy I could cut if off. 
Siguro kasi I always have a short hair tapos after 2 years of not getting a haircut, 
na achieve ko ang long hair.
But yesterday I decided to cut it off, my mudra is soooooooooooo happy kasi she's bugging me to get a haircut, I am just so lazy to go to salon.  My mom asked our suking hair stylist ( oh di ba parang suking tindihan lang :D basta since  grade 4 ata ako sya na ang nag gugupit saken at sa atelya ko)  if he can go to our house instead of going to Jesi Mendez salon (where he's a senior hair stylist and muk up artist pa. BONGGELS im just happy for him. :D para magupitan kami and he said yes.  

at ayun na nga ang kwento.... :D

next outfit post na lang ang hair. hehe :D

I let him go...

he and I had something beautiful but so dysfunctional, 
it couldn't last... 
(near to you - a fine frenzy )

drama eh noh??? haha :D

the man gave these shoes to me over a month ago for our  2nd anniv.  
I'm so in love with the shoes at feeling ko gusto nya din ang paa ko kaso di sya kasya sakin kahit  na size 9 or 10  (basta kung anong biggest sa jellybean yun na yung size nya :D. ) 

So I dont have any choice but to sell them.... and luckily my friend from HK bought it ( almost the same price ang shoes pati ang SF. GRABE na loka  ko sa SF eh )

the man told me to forget about  these super cute shoes kasi I'll find a better pair. Oh well I'm still hoping ...

kakanta na lang ako ng ...

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too...
(someone like you - adele )

 haha :D

reinvent : plaid shirt

I was a bit bored this afternoon so I rummaged to my closet and I found this plaid shirt that was given to my as a gift from my aunt last Christmas. I haven't worn it yet  so I tried it on if it still fits on  me and sad to say...
NO.  Its TOO TIGHT on my arms because I gained weight. So instead of going on a diet I just decided to cut off the sleeves and use this as a cover up or vest. 

here's what it looked like before....

scissors to transform this plaid shirt

cut off the sleeves


I'll wear it soon :D

Do you reinvent some of your clothes???
 Leave your blog url / link to that post .I'd love to see them

I got wired

I got the chance to go out yesterday with the "man" so I decided to showcase my FIRST purchase from Anagon Collection


I really love the wire headband and the star detail on it 
(kaso di pala kita dito, pero sa previous post ko kita sya.hehe)

di ko kaya ang hippie effect ng headband kasi wala akong bangs, kaya ganyan na lang ang ganap. haha :D


my overused mustard bag and 
the TWENTY PESOS vintage inspired ring 

(oh di ba, Marimar lang ang peg ng clogs ko...ang laki ng bulaklak. haha  )

my nails :D

happy friday

Yesterday I got my wire headband from Anagon Collection plus 2  FREE tickets for the Yabang Pinoy  Global Bazaar this November 5 and 6.

headband <3
tickets and note <3

speaking of yabang pinoy, let me share to you this picture wearing the Abaca braided band 
sorry for the picture hehe. way back 2007 pa to. hehe.  50 or 80 pesos ata to before sa Market Market.

I also have the Yabang Pinoy shirt which I bought for only 250 pesos. So sad that I dont have a picture wearing the shirt before I gave it away including some of my clothes for the Ondoy victims last 2009.

Thank you Anagon for the tickets, cant wait to meet you. I'll wear the headband soon.
