Things I Love Thursday, #9

Sunnies Specs in Reagan Bronze I used to wear the Alister prior, but in less than 6 months my grade shot up and wearing plastic lenses suddenly became so heavy. I tried their metal collection and was pleasantly surprised at how I loved the fit of the Reagan. What I like about Sunnies Specs is that it’s stylish but inexpensive. Kehlani’s Distraction Been obsessed with this song recently. Terrace House Aloha State Terrace House Aloha State is a Japanese reality show centered around human beings who live and interact with each other for a certain amount of time. This time, it’s set in North America so relationships and way of life are more Westernized as opposed to the original series. Everything is based among the famous Japanese simplicity of interior design and cinematography. Impatiently patiently waiting for Part 2 to come out on this side of Netflix! Riverdale I can’t really say I love Riverdale yet, but the fact that I keep watching it every week is an indication of my interest. I kind of …

Friday’s 10 Happy Things, v15

This week was pretty full in terms of life, and what a better way to end it than recalling all the happy things that took place! 1. La La Land. I watched it with my girlfriends on Wednesday and I absolutely fell in love with everything. Do I need to elaborate? I don’t think so. 2. Wednesday night dinner with the girls. The good side to adulting is when you get to catch up with friends after work and you’re all coming from different jobs, and just sit and chat and update each other with what’s been happening. It somehow felt like an episode of SATC or something too because there were 4 of us. Heh. 3. Coffee shop afternoons. When my sister has her midterms, I always drag her out to coffee shops after school so that she can sit and study instead of falling asleep at home. It also gave me a chance to fully live the “digital nomad” life for the last week since before starting my new job. 4. Bittersweet (last) …

The Sunday Currently, v24

Hello 2017 and a happy new year everyone! That greeting is still valid, right? After all we’re only 8 days into the year but it already feels like 3 months. Crazy. I’ve been a little slow on blogging, mostly because I’ve been prioritizing different things and most especially getting my daily life on track after travelling for 4 weeks. December was weirdly great and I’m always grateful to end the year on a good note. FEELING Crazy old. I turn 29 this year and it’s an age I never imagined turning. I’m not a fan of these feelings because I feel and look forever 19 or something. I was at a wedding yesterday where I had to make a speech and the host was genuinely shocked when I said I was only 28. And I had a full face of makeup to boot! I’m also still really lazy to wear glasses and I am feeling my eyesight just deteriorating, and been getting eye strain-related headaches lately.

The Sunday Currently, v23

FEELING I’ve been having really sudden bouts of bad headache the whole weekend. It’s weird because when I’m doing something like reading or watching something it goes away but when I’m idle or just looking around that’s when I really feel it. I have a feeling it has something to do with my glasses usage because I’ve had to take it off and put it on again a few times this weekend. READING Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan. I’ve been having a good streak with cheesy, romantic books this month and fortunately this is a trilogy starring 3 friends and their 3 different love lives. So far, so good!

Random Questions Vol. 1

I slept all day today (Wednesday, technically) because yay for holidays and I badly needed it. I was in Boracay with some friends for an extended weekend and somehow I haven’t recovered from it. It’s midnight now and tonight’s pre-bedtime reads included Racked. Came across this article where they asked Rashida Jones questions and I decided to do my own, following the same-ish format. Favorite store in Cebu: A bit challenging because the stores I like in Cebu are all chains–I’ve yet to find something I like that’s completely local. I’ll say Rustans because I’m basic like that. What’s on heavy rotation in your closet: These black dresses that I own, I have about 4 or 5 that I can wear just about anywhere or to any occasion. Mango and Pull & Bear makes really versatile ones. Favorite drugstore beauty buy: Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and Maybelline Define-A-Brow pencil. Both not available in the Philippines, sadly. Favorite investment beauty product: My NARS Audacious Lipstick and LORAC Pro 2 palette. I would say my Hourglass Ambient …
