Just Like That

I know, I know... I will never pose this way again, EVER!!! LOL! 

 ... so it's now Thursday!!! :D I couldn't be happier!!!

Ok, so that's a real sign that I really am stressed at work. I always cannot wait for the weekend to come. :( I love my job. I love my co-workers. I love my bosses. But come on, sometimes you cannot just love the fact that you have to go to the same office 5 days a week. Or maybe it's the kind of work that I do? I don't know. I have to stop blabbing now. But again, I still love what I do. ♥

Speaking of loving what you do, for the past few months, I've been contemplating about venturing into a new career. I am very, VERY, very much interested in make-up and cosmetics. I like putting make-up on myself and on other people. I have watched hundreds of tutorials, read numerous tips and tricks and practiced make-up application. Seriously, if I have the resources, I will enroll myself to a make-up school. But... yeah... I cannot do that now. I have other financial responsibilities that I have to face.

Ok... enough!!!

For now, I'll be enjoying the rest of the day... and day dream at the same time. ;)

I See Stars

Tried belting the cardigan as well. Which is better? ♥

I love wearing cardigans. Most of the pieces I own actually came from thrift stores. I believe I only have a couple of cardigans that I got brand new from the mall. My reason being is simple: I like the selection of cardigans in thrift store waaaaaaaaaaaaay better. Plus, most are over-sized, which I love.

The cardigan and skirt in the photo are both thrifted. Who wouldn't love the beautiful star prints in the skirt. When I saw it in the thrift store rack, I knew I just had to get them. And since the fabric is actually see-through, I had to wear something underneath to hide what needs to be hidden. LOL! It does have a black lining on the inside but it's too short. Anyways, I still love 'em.

Happy hump-day to all! ♥♥♥

Back to Basics

When I first got hooked into nail art a few years back, these would be the typical patterns I'd use for decoration. I sticked to that for quite some time, just playing with different colors. After some months, I got tired with it and resorted to the gradient color trend, which I think is really cute... and tricky to do.

Now that I went back to this "old design", memories of my early days in Youtube keep coming back that I checked out my channel inbox and found some really heart warming messages and comments. One subscriber even "reported" that another Youtuber used one of my pictures in her video and did not credit me. She sounded very concerned and even tried to bash the Youtuber for doing so. Of course I thanked her wholeheartedly and also messaged the person who owned the video. In the end, it made me feel honored about being some sort of tool in giving design ideas to people interested in nail art. I may have stopped updating my Youtube channel for a long time now, but I still check comments and messages regularly. It never fails to make my day.

Have a happy week ahead, everyone! ♥♥♥

Pearls and Mustard

Another thrift find like this pretty mustard cardigan will be abused again. I love how the color instantly brightens up my complexion as well, or... maybe that's just me.

Almost two years ago, our office had a very strict business casual dress code, hence, I had to gear up on formal accessories as well. I had tons of necklaces like this, pictured above. And now that the dress code has lowered down a few notches, I seldom had the chance to wear them. But last week, after sorting out all of my old accessories, I realized that I have to show them love once again. :)

Hope everyone is having a good day. :) ♥♥♥

Manila and Milani

A few weeks back, I sent this photo to this website called Burgers and Nails. It's a Tumblr site that features photos that include... you guessed it... burgers and nails. :) It's like a food and nail porn site! LOL!

And today, my photo was finally published!!! ♥♥♥  Check it here. :D

"Manila, and Milani.."


I liked how the blog admin mentioned that.

Have an awesome week ahead! ♥♥♥

Sunny, Rainy, Crazy

I can still clearly remember mentioning that I will let my shorts and skirts rest in my closet, since the rainy season has started in the country. But I'm pretty certain that summer just came strutting by this morning that I was forced to wear this sorta outfit to work. Yes, it was sweltering hot during my commute and guess what... when I finally arrived to my office, the clouds were already dark, which was partnered by clashes of thunders.


So it's finally Friday! Yay! Can't wait to sleep a lot tomorrow. :D

Have a relaxing weekend to all.♥♥♥
