I’ve been collecting books for a few years now and I keep adding some more every time I encounter titles that tickles my curiosity. So after a lot of failed attempts doing a yearly Book Challenge, I finally had a good start this year and finished my 10th book last week, Yey for me! I’m actually excited to see my numbers towards the end of the year. 🙂
Hindi pa man ako nag-uumpisa pero naiiyak nako… (I haven’t started yet but I’m already crying…)
It’s been exactly one month today when she took her last breathe and left us. It’s been 3 years since we found out that my mother has a Stage 4 breast cancer and while we tried our best to convince her to get treated, she refused. I remember crying out of frustration because of her maddening stubbornness. I mean, there are people who wanted to be treated but don’t have the means and there she was, refusing all the meds and procedures. We just wanted to give the best possible care because she’s our nanay.
Last week, I posted a selfie wearing a bit of makeup and to be honest, I haven’t done it for a quite a while because my plate was very full of life-changing events & my world is a bit of chaos as we speak. Funny ‘coz my blog started as a beauty blog before anything else. I know! I know…my bad! Then a couple of my followers commented that they miss my makeup posts and those lip swatches that I used to do and then it dawned on me…
Back in 2014, I just resigned from work so I got so much stuff in my head and I wanna do this, and do that..blah! blah! blah! I was reading articles about how to make things happen in your life and the idea of a bucket list came to the picture.
If you’re a new follower or simply missed some of my posts from 2017, then allow me to share my top 10 picks. Some are very personal stories that I chose to share and I hope you enjoy reading! Please click the photos to view the full article.
This is a whole new level of challenge and it’s a PAINFUL one! I can feel the burn on my throat & stomach! No joke!!!
It may sound petty and even absurd but there are people like me and yes, our language of love is called AFFIRMATION. It means that words of appreciation, verbal compliments, and assurance matter to us. Kami yung sinasabing either KSP or kulang sa pansin or madaling i-please kasi all you gotta do e bola-bolahin/utu-utuin lang; massage their egos & you have their love & attention. But actually, there’s more than that…
This post may invite a number of interpretations yet I still find it worth reposting. It may be contrasting to the celebratory mood but I wanted to share this article/note written by Jennifer Aniston back in 2016 because it says everything that I wanted to say. We may not be celebrities but if you’re a single woman or a wife in a childless marriage, then take some time to read this because it’s worth your time.
I’ve been meaning to do this post for a long time but because of the harsh reality that I witnessed on the internet, I held back and bagged the whole idea. But after reading the article from Cosmopolitan UK, I said to myself, why not do it and why not do it NOW? So here I am. Ready and willing to share my own story.
In my 32 years, I only celebrated my special day 4 times – 10th, 18th, 28th and 30th.
