HOMESPIRATIONS

here are just a few of my fave pins that inspires me to work even harder and soon have a space of my own. after watching soul surfer and revenge, i have started to crave for a house beside the beach. though my mom always reminds me of natural disasters like tsunami, i still plan on getting one. hahaha. nature outside my home is what i would really pursue in the future. i love nature and would enjoy them even more when surrounded by cozy pillows, beds, and people i mean my family and friends. i love how cozy-looking these spaces are. also, i am so much into lightbulbs. thanks, uncle thomas. no, please don't get me wrong. i am chinese. they just look too fab and vintage. guess i am really into the vintage side after all.

 

what is your dream house like?

D I Y: QUICK & EASY TEA CANDLES

 

halleeers! i am deeply in love with washi tapes. just sayin'/hahaha. so a few weeks ago, i saw from the web a really cute and quick d i y. my apologies i don't remember its source please tell me if it was yours anyway, i really liked this idea and thought that i had to share with you guys. whenever guests come over your house, you can simply light up your tiny little cute candle and voila! good bye, mosquitos. it can also be for the cooking of your mini marshyyymallooows. oh, lol.  it's really quick plus easy too. everyone is capable of doing this d i y. try it! try it! 

method: so basically you just cut your tape preferrably washi tape trust me on this and wrap it around your tea candles. aaand that's it, you're done!

WEEKEND OUTING

*looks at you* oh, hi there! wazzzzzuuuuup? the sky? but i'm at home. you must mean the ceiling then? hahaha! anywayyyyyyss.. our weekend outing in photographs at pico de loro, batangas. yes, as you can see, the trip was quite awe-some! cavitex is now open and is worth the curve, i tell you. the air is very clean and unpolluted hoping it would stay like this forever and the beachhhhhh. oh, man. i'm a beach girl, i love the beach. especially the great view and picture quality i know you feel me, girl because at the beach, you get to wear those big floppy hats and knitted tops with da fringes awyeah that you've long been waiting to pull out from your closet. i must say, their lagoon is so pure, clean and green. there are not much people yet though, perhaps it's your great chance now. c'mon do the great escape.

 

..after the real live proposal that i've witnessed for the first time ever here, we have again, another time witnessed an unknown true love story truly an honor for me but now at the beach aghhhhh couldn't be more grateful for this opportunity. it was beautiful. and now i'm dreaming of my own beach wedding.

 

PS: can you spot the cute tiny-but-tiny yellow bean on the sky?

SURVIVAL KIT + TIPS

because midterms and finals are coming up so soon (well, at least for me)..here's a little midterms survival kit for you guys.

 

1. nuts : these nuts are very good for your brain. instead of chips, why don't you snack on much healthier food like nuts or fruits?

 

2. yoghurt with fruits : try to eat before you leave. breakfast is the most important meal of the day. trust me it would help you think better during exams.

 

3. scrunchies : i don't know for you but for me, i like to tie my hair high up in a bun while studying for the exams. honestly, i don't want those bangs getting on my way.

 

4. water : now this you shall not forget. you have to keep yourself hydrated all the time in order to think properly.

 

5. highlighters : these sharpies are great for coloring those important terms. they've hit me big time. fell deeply in love with each one of them. 

 

6. pj's : jump in your most comfy outfit (pj's/oversized tee with leggings for me) 

 

more tips : take frequent breaks every 30 mins to an hour. stretch and breathe. you can even check your instagram, twitter or facebook; it may serve as a breather. lastly, don't forget to pray.

 

just do your best and God will do the rest. pretty sure you'll do well, you awesome person, you!

MANILA HOTEL

so last new year's eve, we chose manila hotel to stay for the night. with expectations of the 2014 countdown. upon entering the hotel, i was deeply mesmerized and stunned for about 5 seconds by their nye's decorations. not to mention that they had two huge christmas trees beside the stage which are adorbs and santa lanterns on the tables which are super adorable..again. oh oh! those giant soldiers were striking and cute too. i am also in love with their shiny, very woody-like ceiling and of course, their vintage chandeliers will always be the best. inside every room, you can't not notice those tiny little drinks. i mean they are just too cute. meant for drinking but only decorations for children oh you mean angels mwahaha like me. everything was going really great and then midnight came. it became greater. party here, party there, too much fun in the house. it was crazy fun. everybody was all smiling, greeting anyone they bump into a happy new year. what an awesome countdown. and down there, ↓ is only one evidence of my craziest last minute for the year 2013.
