Just last December 23 I attended a wedding of my mom’s god daughter. I guess it was the first wedding I attended to this year and the last. I was carried away during the moment when the newly wed made their vows because that same day was the 22nd anniversary of my parents. Apart from that, everything looks perfect from the church down to the reception hall. One thing that kept me in awe during the whole event was the beauty of the bride and the wedding dress she’s wearing. It was simple but classic.

Speaking of wedding dresses I recently discovered a new website which specializes a lot of event dresses and of course, wedding dresses. It’s no other than Simple-dress.com. If you are a soon to be bride who’s already planning of what to wear on your wedding you can get ideas of your ideal cheap wedding dresses from them. They have some categories to choose from like beach wedding dresses, ball gown wedding dresses, lace wedding dresses and so lot more. You can check out their website for more finds. For now here are some of the sample dresses from their site. 


Sleek and sophisticated, these describes what Simple-dress wedding dresses are. They also have simple yet captivating pieces and daring but sweet dresses. I'm very particular with intricate details of dresses too and I found some dresses from their site that have it!  


These wedding dresses are designed uniquely with different details. Let's say the first dress above: It looks simple but the heart tube top and ball gown form made it looked like a princess dress. On the other hand, the second dress above is simply classy with a little conservative touch yet is sexy for its body fitting style. These two dresses are completely different but both classy and beautiful.

2017 has been a year of ups and downs but I'm pretty sure that it is by far the most memorable and eventful year I had in my 21 years of existence. It's already been a roller coaster ride of experiences and emotions since January 2017 'til now that it's December. This is the year of bountiful blessings, of lessons, of experiences and of taking big leaps and challenges. I could say that 2017 has definitely been my year and I wouldn't trade any of my experiences here for anything else. 
  • This year, my self confidence was tested through joining my first ever pageants! It was the pageant for my department which is Ms. Dentistry and school pageant, Ms. LPU. Joining these two pageants and having myself crowned as Ms. Dentistry 2017 has been one of my biggest and proudest achievement that I'll always remember until I become older. I've never had that high self confidence to walk and dance and represent myself in a crowd who will judge me with the way I look. But, I still pushed it through because in spite of all the negative thinking of what could go wrong I focused on the positive thinking of what could possibly go right. Both pageants gave me the feeling of victory although I got no title on the second pageant. Conquering my fear and being the pride of my department and family made me feel a real winner already. Sabi nga nila kulang lang ako minsan sa motivation at pampalakas ng loob but at the end of the day it will always be what my heart says and it is "I'd rather have a life of "oh wells" than a life of "what ifs". :) I don't want to end up with regrets anymore. I'll never know when I do not try so, yes, I'll still go for it! :)
  • This year I've been focused and active in improving my lifestyle. I engaged myself in different activities like driving and yup, I got my driver's license already. I purposely went to the gym to be fit and toned but... I didn't went on a diet so basically, I've gained more weight than lose some pounds this year (Haha huhu, I don't know if I'll be happy or not) I still joined basketball women's in spite of giving up my clinic days. I started reconnecting & meeting old and new friends too who were once strangers turned into close friends and boyfriend (Haha!). I explored new places this year (places in my bucket list) and tried different dishes in artsy cafes to fine dining restaurants. It's like food tasting everyday. Haha! I never forget blogging. Blogging every vacation has been my favorite past time and I'm still accepting sponsorships and product reviews for my favorite brands. 
  • The first semester of 3rd year proper had pretty much caused me stress for the past 4 months. There was a big leap from the acads-focused life to acads-clinic life. The hardest part of it? Looking for patients. My patience was tested especially in looking for ideal patients for each clinical requirements that I have to finish at the end of the semester. It's not easy to find patients who are willing to deal with because they could be deceiving at times. Sometimes they'll say "yes" but they will eventually leave you when you have scheduled them already for the procedure. It's disappointing and big a waste of time for every clinician who's trying to catch up with the requirements for the whole semester. I don't know if it's just me but God always do wonders whenever I'm left with no patient. He's really good and He's really helping me by giving me unexpected blessings especially during last minute clinic situations. Thank you Lord for making me survive everyday. First semester: DONE!!! 
  • This year I found a love. Yiee hahaha. You all know who I'm talking about! It was one of the biggest risk I made this year. It's taking the risk of introducing a man to my family and taking the risk of trusting my heart to someone. I was afraid and full of doubts at first but at the back of my mind I wanted to follow my heart and do something that would make me happy. I don't want to keep secrets (because I'm not really good at it) and I wanted to do the right thing. I introduced Paulo to my family because I know that he's worth it to be introduced to my family.

  • This year I learned to enjoy, be happy and be contented with whatever I have in my life. Whatever happens, accept it. Whether it may be good or bad, think of it as a blessing and a lesson. Don't let yourself be occupied by fear and hatred. Love your family and spend more time with them. Be thankful for whatever God has given you. 
Merry Christmas everyone!!! :) 


Kicking The Day Off Right With Doe Deere

Doe Deere is the founder and lead designer of Lime Crime, a cosmetics brand available in most countries around the globe. Earlier this year, Savoir Flair, a digital magazine, got exclusive access to Ms. Deere's morning routine. Although everybody's different, the founder of a makeup company is certain to know several tricks that laymen - more like laywomen - likely don't know about.

Kicking The Day Off Right

Doe reports aiming for nine hours of sleep each night, waking up at 8:30 each morning. Oddly enough, she reports not having to rely on an alarm to wake herself, as her internal clock is quite accurate.

Living in arid Los Angeles, it's important to stay hydrated to boost skin condition. As such, Ms. Deere drinks a full glass of water each morning. Next, she strives to stretch every day - though, like most people, she forgets to some days. Breakfast comes after stretching. She reports enjoying grits - a hot cereal popular in the Southeast United States - fruit, orange juice, and yogurt.

Keeping Track Of Events And Obligations

Like most people in today's world, Doe Deere "[lives] by the calendar on [her] phone."

Lime Crime, her corporate creation, utilizes an internal company chat interface, allowing Doe to keep in touch with the inner workings of her business without risking data security breaches.

Deere likes to keep social media, computers, and other sources of digital information as far away as possible during the morning. However, she keeps up with emails throughout her day, though she aims to knock them out as frequently as possible in the mornings.

She reports listening to The Beatles while applying makeup, and enjoys listening to other classic music throughout each application session.

It's Time For The Products

Glossier face wash is Doe Deere's wash of choice, as it's quite mild, and smells of roses. Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence comes next, an effective moisturizer that goes well with any look.

L'Oreal's True Match Foundation and MAC's Studio Fix foundations follow. Even though her company doesn't offer foundation, such a formula is currently in the works.

Doe Deere reports setting her makeup with powder, then moving on to filling in her brows. Contouring cheeks immediately fellows, with lips coming up next. She says applying blush and lipstick are the favorite parts of her daily cosmetics routine, as "color brings [her] face to life."

But How Long Does It Take?

Doe Deere reports getting ready in as little as fifteen minutes, though she might take her time and take up to an hour if important obligations are coming up that day. Ms. Deere likes to shower in the late evening, as she can avoid using hairdryers and prevent spending loads of time on drying hair and related responsibilities. She also waits until the evening to shower because her hair is dryer than as if she recently showered, allowing it to be appropriately styled by the morning.

Animals Can Be Woman's Best Friend

While dogs are the most commonly owned pet in the world, Doe Deere owns two Persian felines, named Chester von Battingham and Puffy Fluffles. She reports enjoying to treat them like kings, though their genders weren't stated in the interview.

She often gets to her office at Lime Crime's facility around midday, eats lunch there, then socializes with her team of executives. Deere strives to be done with work by 6 in the evening, although she reports staying until midnights, at times.

Lime Crime is a cosmetics line based in the United States that's vegan and cruelty-free.

If you are using prescription-strength retinoids such as Retin-A and are feeling a bit dry and overly-skin-sensitive, a mega-dose of ceramide hydration may be just the right solution for your skin. Ceramides are composed of tiny molecules that can actually rehydrate your skin by improving the skin’s natural moisture barrier function – an important dermatologic solution for excessive redness, dryness, and even inflammatory conditions such as eczema.

Elevase Moisture Booster is a lightweight, hydrating cream with opti-ceramides. A perfect moisturizer for dry, sensitive skin for those using retinoids and other exfoliating skin products.

Choosing the right moisturizer can be difficult, but fortunately Kare MD Skin Health has formulated a ceramide-based moisturizer that can hydrate your skin, combat excessive dryness and sensitivity, and improve your skin’s natural moisture barrier function.

Super-lightweight, lightly fragranced, and nourishing to the skin; Elevase Moisture Booster became an essential part of our daily skin regimen. We love products that have a dual-purpose, and this cream fits the bill very well. A moisturizer that works great on dry and irritated skin and has the ability to strengthen the fundamentals of your skin’s natural moisture barrier.


If you are using retinoids or exfoliants on your skin, apply a generous amount of Elevase Moisture Booster on the skin twice daily. If you’re feeling dry throughout the day, apply a liberal amount to the skin as needed. Perfect for the eyelids and around the mouth.

Hey yooo! It's finally Christmas vacation! Another stressful semester done!!! Hayyyy, I can finally relax and enjoy the rest of the month without thinking of my acads and deadlines. By the way, I really missed my blog because I have been MIA for the past weeks and months. I have a lot of new updates to post- ootds, events and diaries here and I'm excited to share all of those with you! Anyway, I don't have any plans of going out today because it's a complete rest day for my foot. I got injured and had one toe dislocated and another one fractured last week. The happening went really quick. I was about to go to Manila to attend Blogger's United last Saturday but while I was getting my shoes I had a stair accident. Instead of going to Manila we went to the emergency room and had it treated immediately. It's a good thing that it was corrected in the least possible time and I feel much better now although I still cannot bend it completely. 
Outfit. I realized that I've been ordering lots of jumpsuits and rompers lately (wait for my next ootd posts!!!) It's just that I find it comfortable and modish without putting too much effort in styling it. This jumpsuit from Yoins is one of it. It's comfortable to use- the fabric is soft and absorbs sweat. There are no worries if it's too windy because it's not a dress which might fly up or too hot which may cause you to sweat too much. The prints is a plus for me because I'm the typical girly girl who loves printed pinks and neutrals on my outfit. The only thing that I don't like in wearing jumpsuit is when I have to pee. It's a hassle to remove everything from top to bottom. Haha! Anyway, if you want to see and buy this geometry print jumpsuit, you can check it out here. I got it for $21.95 // Php 1,364.41. :) I also got my floral headband from Yoins for only $5.95 // Php 312.84 :)

"Falling in love is one of the best things that happen when you are young. It's like magic- you just don't know how it actually takes place, and you care nothing but the smile it brings to you."
They say love comes when you least expect it. I don't believe it before because I have a strong belief that at this age (21) I am still too young to experience falling in love. Little did I know that I was already being tested when I was set up unexpectedly to a guy I barely know. I found myself caught up in the moment and never imagined that I will be having my first boyfriend this year!
So there's this guy I met 6 months ago. Btw, his name is Paulo. He was my friend in facebook for 1 year already. I don't usually accept friend requests in facebook especially the ones I barely know. I actually don't know Paulo but because he has a lot of mutual close family friends plus he also came from the same school I graduated in high school I decided to accept his request. We haven't had any conversation before like there's really no history of a wave nor a "Hi". I also found out that he's my follower in instagram. I was a little curious who this guy was so I decided to stalk him. I found out that he came from a well known family in my parents' hometown and his family is a friend of ours. I also noticed that this guy was always the first one who views my ig stories and hearts my pictures every time I post online. It's kinda creepy for my part. (Haha! Hi love!)  
I already saw Paulo's pictures but I never saw him in person. Although we were schoolmates during high school I cannot remember a time that I saw him around the campus. (or I did already but I'm not observant that I thought I didn't? Haha) He replied once to my ig story when I was hospitalized last Feb this year but after that I got no message again from him. For once, I thought that he was just like the other playful guys who just want to chat and collect girls' numbers (Sorry love, ang judger ko! Haha)
May 17, 2018. It was the day Paulo was introduced to me. I met her titas (our family friends) who were having their vacation here. They were the ones who introduced him to me. It was very random. They started teasing me saying "Uyy, may nagpapakumusta sayo! Si Kuya totoy! Si Paulo!". I have no idea who Paulo was until I realized it was Paulo, the ig stalker! Haha! His titas started telling stories about him saying that he's already a graduating student, that he traveled to London last summer for his thesis papers and that he was reviewing for his board exam. I wasn't even asking about him but as they were building up their nephew I realized how special this man could have been and will be in the future. I got curious and asked what was his batch when he graduated in SBC and they started telling me names of his friends who were familiar to me. I started stalking him in facebook. I saw his present and old pictures. He had changed a lot- from being skinny to chubby!! I can't take him off my mind the whole day until I decided to chat him first in ig the same night he was introduced to me. I told him what his titas said about him and how he was built up. He asked me if they told me that "he has a crush on me". Sobrang high school ng dating but why do I found it cute? Haha! Actually, I found him kinda boring when we first chatted. It seems like he doesn't know what to say but it lasted for like 3 hours. 
The following days after our first conversation I receive no message from him. 3 consecutive days after we last talked? Maybe he's not interested. Me neither. It was on the fourth day when I received a wave on facebook chat box. One late night conversation followed by another and another and so on. It all began there. Yes, he's still boring but everything that he say has sense. I found him street smart with the way he talk and introduce himself. Our first meeting happened unexpectedly on a bus terminal in Manila. It was very random. We were both going home from Manila to Batangas. We were not on the same terminal during the time when he chatted me where I was. I told him I was in this particular bus. Little did I know that he transferred from the terminal where he was and went to the terminal where I was and rode the same bus. He even seated at my back. Ang lakas din ng love ko. Wala talagang hiya-hiya. Haha! After that day, our first date followed. He fetched me home. I instructed him the route in going to my place. We had a movie date (Wonder woman) and ate after. Food trip agad. Ang lakas nga pala talaga nya kumain. Nakakain na, may take-out pa. Love ko, diet na ha! 
From the very start, I already felt that he's really in to me. He knows a lot of things about me and that impressed me a lot. He knows about my family, my life in school, my daily updates, my blog!!! Almost every story that I tell, it seems like he already know it! Haha! Sumobra ata stalking skills nya. Parang may nakakabit na cctv sakin sa dami ng alam nya. Haha! He told me he was stalking me for several months already. After our first date, I realized that he was just a friend. I mean, he's a nice guy and I think we will be good friends. Nothing more. I found him boring. He doesn't tell stories about himself and he's too quiet.   
After our first date, I wasn't expecting another one until he chatted me again. I don't know why every time he'll ask me on a date I just can't say no. I started to get to know him better after every date that we had. I find him boring but every words that comes out of his mouth actually makes sense. He's street smart and what makes him attractive is how he sees things in a positive way. He's competitive and I love the way he visions himself in the future. I like how he makes his plans and makes his way to achieve it one by one. He loves his family so much especially his inay. He's also a gentleman and I'm lucky enough to be treated as Paulo's princess since the day we started going out until now that he is already my boyfriend.
I know I'm one of the hardest girl to handle and I salute him for being able to handle a sometimes monster clothed in an angel disguised woman. I am moody, Changes din ako, and sometimes pessimist. I don't know how he was able to handle all my dramas in life but one thing's for sure, he really loves me and he appreciates everything about me. 
Of all the man who tried to pursue me, he's the only man who didn't gave up despite of all my craziness and dramas in life. I can see how "All-In" he is when it comes to me. I fell in love with his little and big efforts to make me smile. I know he deserves my heart and I'm happy to entrust it to him. He's the first man I truly fell in love with and I hope that 6 years or 9 years from now I'll tell myself that he's the one. I love you, love! :)
