Hello everyone! How are you all doing?? It's finally FRIDAYYY and it's the first Friday and the last one for the month that I feel like I'm free from stress and errands. The whole month of September went so crazy from the the first till the last week. Nakakaloka! Nakakapagod! I didn't realize that 3 days from now I'll be turning 23 already. Ang bilis ng panahon. Parang dumaan lang ang isang buong September tapos birthday ko na pala! Haha! I'll probably have nothing special to do on my birthday, maybe just the usual clinic day on the morning and birthday dinner with the family after.

Since I started this post with a calm and happy greeting, I wanted to spread the positive vibes by sharing with you some fun facts about me! :)
1. First on the list, I LOVE PASTRIES and anything sweet (except candies) and I can literally eat a whole cake in one sitting.
2. In connection with number 1, I think I'd love to have a business in relation to pastries in the future but I'm not into baking. I don't know how it's possible to have a pastry business without loving baking, well I tried twice or even thrice before but it's not really for me, but let's see if it's possible in the future. Haha! 
3. My favorite Filipino dish is Adobong atay (Chicken liver). It's very satisfying!
4. I don't drink. Well, I did but only twice in my whole life. First was in a family reunion where I only had one shot glass full (that's it and nothing followed) and second was on a friend's birthday dinner wherein I had only minimal shots. When I say minimal, maybe 3 shots of a 2/3 shot glass. I don't know why I didn't liked drinking. Maybe because I'm already satisfied with the appetizers more than the drink itself. :))
5. I'm more of a beach babe than a city girl. The sound of the waves is the most calming sound I'd love to hear. Take me with you on your next beach trip!
6. I am a blogger since I'm 15 years old! I started with a very personal and private blog in tumblr that I continued in Blogger platform. I decided to open my blog in public when I had my first ever blog collaboration when I was 17. 
7. Guess what's my first ever blog collab! It's a promotional post for a bed sheet brand! Haha! I didn't knew that that bed sheet will bring me more collaborations and sponsors! Thanks for the trust! :)
8. I've always considered travelling as one of my life's biggest investment. Seeing the beauty of other places and being able to expose myself in different cultures turns my imagination and ideas into reality. Travelling is like a drug. When you started liking it, you'll find yourself craving for more adventures and trips!
9. I've never experienced having an overnight at a friend's house. It's not because my mom doesn't allow me. It's my decision not to just because I cannot sleep knowing that I'm in a different house without my family. Korea for 10 days last May was a struggle, to be honest!
10. My childhood dream is to become a licensed physician but I don't have regrets to where I am now (minsan lang! HAHA) I'm pretty sure that after I finish my course, I can proudly say that LPU-Dentistry really brought out the best in me. Literally, physically, emotionally, mentally! HAHA! 
11. I love collecting bags especially the ones with unusual and cute designs. Ice cream bags, triangle bags, sequined bags, perfume bags, diamond designed bags, flamingo bags, you name it!
12. Lastly, I'm US 9.5 and usually size 41 that's why I prefer getting my sandals and shoes from online stores abroad. Some PH stores doesn't offer size 41 up :( 
Outfit. This outfit is inspired by Korean fashion. One of my friends requested me to try dressing up like the K POP icons and it's challenging for my part because it's not really my style. Good thing is that, I have this dress from Blooming Jelly that helped me achieve the look. When I was in Korea I have stared to a lot of Korean girls and realized that they'd rather show off their legs in short skirts and shorts than wear something that will show off their shoulders and cleavage. They love layering clothes like wearing an inner top on a dress or sometimes still adding a jacket on it. This is my take on Korean fashion and I'd love to hear your comments on how I wore it!

Before these pictures were taken I've worn this dress for like 3 times already. This is one of my first basic dress ever and I couldn't be more happier to my first ever purchase! Haha! You know how much I love dressing up in maxis and prints and this one is a big leap from my usual femme chic ootds. I decided to get a (casual dress) plain mini twist shift dress and I'm surprised on how I loved the effortless and countless ways of styling it. I'm sure that I'll be stocking up with more basics in my closet and play with them in endless ways that I can. I would also want to focus on the fabric of this dress. It's 100% soft and cotton and I love how comfortable it is to wear especially in this scorching PH weather! All thanks to Bloomingjelly for this dress! 
This dress comes in three different colors: Gray, Saddle brown and Dark Olive Green (Mine's). It also comes in 4 sizes: Small- XL. I got mine in Large/ US8. The dress has no lining and the length is above the knee. It has a regular thickness, non see through and is somewhat stretchable. This dress is mostly recommended for casual walks and occasions where you can dress it up in sneakers or sandals. 
You can get this same dress by clicking this (Solid Color Twist Hemline Mini Dress). It's currently on 58% SALE and you can have it for only 24.99 USD.  
Watch out for my next outfit featuring another BloomingJelly dress :) :)

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? :) I’ve been so concerned about my hair lately and have been browsing some inspirations for my hair on instagram and pinterest. I know my hair needs to be pampered because I haven’t done it for so long already so I decided to have a hair cleansing treatment from a salon I saw from instagram. I also thought of having a haircut but I only had it trimmed since I don’t want to make a drastic change on my hair. I noticed that after my hair treatment my hair became less dry and shiny. The hairstylist suggested me to try a new hair color and it’s one thing that I haven’t done in my entire life. I don’t know why I’m so afraid of changing my black hair into something new. Maybe it’s because I’m afraid of introducing harsh chemicals on my it.

Speaking of hair color and hair styles, I’ve been introduced to an online store recently that specializes human hair wigs. I knew my wish has been heard of wanting to have a different look and color when I started to browse Wiggins Hair’s website. This site left me so much inspiration and hope in transforming and bringing my hair and look into a different level. When it comes to having a new hairstyle I know I can rely on their human hair extensions. Whether I want my hair to look permed or straight I can do it both conveniently. Imagine how easy it is to just put on and clip it in your hair and say hello to a new instant look after! If I want to see myself having a different color I can rely on their ombre hair weave. They have a lot of colors to choose from! I’ve always wanted to see my hair in a lighter color and it’s only a few clicks away without sacrificing the health of my new hair with chemicals.

Aside from that, Wiggins Hair is also a leading wholesale online hair extensions shop. I would introduce their bundle deals with frontal and I think it’s one of their best buys since it’s the complete package that everyone would love!

When I was in High school I used to think of how life would be in my twenties- what career path and life will I have in college, who will be my new set of friends, what places will I be able to travel, who will be my boyfriend, what will be my accomplishments and the like. I was so excited for my future back then that I forgot to think of the problems or mishaps that I may encounter during those years. 11 years go I was so passionate of being a doctor that whoever asks me what I want to be I would proudly say "I want to be a doctor preferably a nephrologist". Fast forward to 4 years I became one of those Dentistry students in LPU and 7 years later, I'm still here in my college finishing my requirements for graduation. 5 years ago I used to say that I would never want a boyfriend in my life while I'm still studying but 3 years after, I had the biggest plot twist in my life and never knew I would have a boyfriend that same year haha! All my life I was an introvert and never thought I would came out of my shell when I reached my college years. I was able to cope up with the culture shock that College life slapped me and embraced the changes and challenges that it threw me. Never did I imagined that I would step up that stage and walk like a queen for a pageant nor talk to a lot of strangers that eventually turned out as friends.  
What I'm trying to say is that all of the plans that I made before didn't turned out even close to all the experiences I had now but I honestly wouldn't trade all of those for anything else. As a new chapter is here to come I want to share my 22 realizations with all of you before I turn 23 in a few days. :) 
1. It's okay to be late. All great things take time. 
2. Never underestimate the power of prayer. When you think you've done enough but still feels afraid and scared, pray. When you want to ask from God something you've always wanted to have, pray for it. It works! :)
3. Trust, honesty & thoughtfulness are the keys to make every relationship work. Do not forget those three! :)
4. Hard work will really bring you far.
5. Asking for help doesn't make you stupid. You never know what that one person can do to help and change your life .
6. Be healthy. Eat nutritious foods and have that morning exercise done. Do not let your body suffer in the long run.
7. Explore as much as you can. Travel while your legs can still manage to walk and join in tours.Travel while you can still tolerate plane rides. Travel while you're family is still complete. Travel while you still can and you're young! :)
8. Do not expect too much because life just works as it is. Remember the things that I mentioned earlier, those are living proofs that not all plans and expectations come to reality. Just go with the flow, enjoy where you are now and you will eventually be led in making the best decisions of your life.
9. Celebrate the little successes in life. I usually do this everytime I finish cases in school. It's either I'll have my lashes permed or buy that "one item" I've always been wanting to have.
10. Give compliments whenever you feel like to. It boosts other people's self esteem. Don't you just like making other people happy?
11. Invest in yourself. Self-development will never be a negative thing. Learn as much as you can.
12. Love your grandparents as much as you love your parents. My lola has been constantly visiting us recently and I realized how much joy she brings to our family. She's old and she's very sensitive. She experiences different physical pain and she needs attention and care. Always ask her how she is, how she's doing, and make her feel that she's loved.
13. Surround yourself with people from different walks of life. Be open to learn a lot of things from them.
14. Social media can be very toxic at times. This is probably the first cause of depression of most teenagers nowadays. Social media is always focused on showing all the good things and successes that other people have. You will feel, at some point, that you're left out. Here's the tip: Try to challenge yourself to delete those apps for a week and focus on your craft. You will eventually feel that you don't care about social media as much as you do before and realize that you have your own life to embrace and  love. :)
15. Save while you're still young and invest on something that you'll be thankful for in the future. :) 
16. Start choosing a partner you can see a future with. It's not even early to think about this because if you're my age, I tell you, we're not young anymore. We don't want to settle with someone we know we will only end breaking up with in our mid twenties or late twenties. Choose a person who can adjust and cope up with your attitude and would always try to understand you to avoid arguments. Choose a guy who loves your family and your family loves. And lastly, choose a guy who is working hard to fulfill the vision he has for the both of you.
17. Always tell your mom how thankful you are for her. Learn to appreciate everything she does. Sometimes, your "thank you" is the only thing she needs to hear after a long tiring day in work.
18. Always keep your feet on the ground.
19. Supporting another's success won't even lessen yours. Support your friends and family. Remember, you were once in their feet and it feels so damn good when you feel that someone's happy for your successes.
20. Seat sales are not always a good idea. This is very tempting and you tend to spend more than you never thought you would. This will only be the best choice if you're scheduled to travel or have any plans of travelling.
21. Before starting an argument, think if it's worth the stress and wrinkles!
22. Lastly, praying with the family gives me a happy and contented heart. We usually do this every night and it feels fulfilling to say a prayer together as a family.
