Sunshine Blog Awards!

It has been a long time since I did a blog tagging post. And luckily, Kei tagged me in the sunshine blog awards. I was very enthusiastic in making this post that I made sure to give good questions to the bloggers that I awarded since this is a great opportunity to know more about my blogger crushes. To the bloggers I tagged, keep up the good work, okay? You never fail to inspire me.

11 Facts About Me

1. I am studying BS Business Administration, Major in Business Economics. I'm currently a second-year student and I plan to take up Entrepreneurship and Business Economics at the same time by next year. And hopefully, I can finish both courses by 2017 

2. I enjoy doing sophisticated nail art. Doing my nails and creating little designs is my definition of leisure. You can check my previous blog posts if you want to see my creations.

3. I have an obsession in bags and shoes. Every time I have money, I never failed to spend it on bags or shoes. I can't even count how many pairs of shoes I have. Maybe one day, I'll have a museum of shoes just like Imelda Marcos. I even have a separate room full of shoes. 

4. I love doing DIY projects. I have loads of clothes in my closet and every time I see clothes that I don't use anymore, I always have this urge to re-make the clothes or make it into another usable item. 

5. I am a virtuoso pianist. I attended a music school when I was 13, I worked as a piano teacher when I was 15. Unfortunately, my Mom made me stop going to music school so that I can focus in college.

6. I am a dream chaser. I write all my goals in life and I even save pictures of my ambitions so that I have inspiration. This is why I always give my best in everything I do. I am driven.

7. I am a control freak :( In a sense that I want everything prim and proper. That I always make sure that I am well dressed and my hair and face should always look presentable. I also make sure that I balance my time with everything. I want things to go according to my plan. Maybe that is why I fit best in the business industry.

8. I am addicted to coffee.

9. I really love reading. From blogs, to magazines, to newspapers, to novels. There was never a day that I didn't read a publication. 

10. I'm a Filipino with Chinese and Japanese blood... which means that I'm a cross-breed hahaha

11. I'm currently in a relationship :') I've been through bad relationships but luckily, I found someone who is as mature as I am. We've been together for almost a month as of today, but I'm pretty sure that our relationship is the type of relationship that will last a lifetime.

Questions from Kei
1. If you were to be stranded in an island, what are the things that you will bring with you?
Can I bring persons instead? lol. I'd bring an architect friend, an engineer friend, a pilot friend, a doctor friend, a computer programmer friend and my boyfriend. And all together, we'll build our own empire in our island and live happily ever after.

2. What is that one beauty product that you can't live without?
My lip tint. 

3. What is your favorite TV show/series?
The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Pretty Little Liars

4. Do you like milkshakes?
Very much. Especially blueberry-yogurt milkshake.

5. Are you using an Android, Blackberry or Apple phone?
Neither. I'm too poor to afford them and I'm too unprofessional to have them. Nuff said ;)

6. If you were to pick a celebrity date, who will it be?
Zac Efron please.

7. Which would you prefer: a fruit tart or chocolate molten lava cake?
Fruit tart because I'm a fat woman trying to lose weight :D But if I were happy with my weight already, I'd go for the chocolate molten lava cake. I'm so sorry for being a conscious woman.

8. Would you choose Starbucks over brewed coffee at home?
No. I mean, I can make my brewed coffee at home taste like Starbucks coffee. And we use Starbucks coffee beans in brewing coffee anyways. I also love staying at home :D

9. If you were to have a vacation in one country, where will it be?
Venice, Italy ♥ ♥ ♥ and oh, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A. also :D

10. If you were to be a cartoon character, what cartoon series would you want to be in?
Happy Tree Friends. So that I can kill all of my friends and on the next episode, they will be alive again. We can kill each other over and over and be alive again Yay :D

11. If you were to have the power to fly, where would you go?
First, I'd go to my boyfriend's place since he's really far away from me and we only see each other once or twice a month because we live in different cities (we go to the same school though) and we have two months vacation. After that, I'll pick him up and we'll go to Vegas and after that, we'll fly to Vegas

DIY Denim Cut-Out Shirt

Lately, I've been so anxious about being an active blogger. It is because I'm always at home. Why?
1. I'm too lazy to go out of the house which means I can't share exciting experiences and OOTDs (unless my readers are interested in pajamas as OOTDs)
2. I want to stay at home because my grandparents are always at home and they'll go back to U.S. next week
3. I don't receive money from my parents and if ever I go out, they don't give me money, but I use my savings. So yeah, I don't want to spend all  my savings because of hanging out in the city.

I figured out that even though I don't go out of the house, I still have awesome thoughts to share with you guys. That is why I came out with this DIY. This time, watch out for my home-made-posts hihihi

You'll be needing an old denim shirt (I got mine for only P120 from the thrift shop), a ruler, scissors and chalk

First, mark your denim shirt and follow the measurements.

After marking your denim top, cut out the first two wholes in the middle. I only cut a small portion at first so that I can adjust the measurements everytime I try it on to see if it fits me perfectly since all of us have different body types.

After trying it on, I re-adjusted the measurements and cut it again.

When I was happy with the measurements, I got the cut-out polo that I wanted. I just love how conservative it looks in the lower area but it looks sexy as it hangs on the shoulders. 

Thank you for reading xx

Finally 17

Hello readers! This week was extra fun for me?! Why? Because it's my birth week. I know it's weird but I usually celebrate my birthday the whole week. My exact birthday was last May 29 and during that day, I was supposed to go to my great grandmother's funeral, but I don't want to mourn on my birthday okay. My Dad and my sister went to Pozorrubio, Pangasinan for my grandmom, while I stayed here in Baguio City to celebrate it with my best friends. I was fortunate that two of my best friends who already stay in another city for college, went here in my city and my birthday went pretty well because I spent time with the people I want to be with. ♥

Here was my OOTD. The photos were taken in Breadtalk while waiting for Nikki hahaha

These are my bestest friends since high school. (from left to right) Chy, Joyce, Anj and Joa

I got bored at Breadtalk so I met with my sister because she wants a frappe. So we went to Starbucks and I treated her a green tea cream frappe. At the same time, I loaded my Starbucks card and claimed my free cake and crew sang happy birthday to me :">

After that, my besties and I went to Moonleaf at Techno Hub, Camp John Hay. It was really cozy there and it used to be our favorite chill spot. So we were so hyped when I suggested to go to Moonleaf.

After chilling at Moonleaf, we ate again at SM. I felt like eating a lot since it was my day and I really don't limit myself from food anymore since I'm happy with my body and I will always be sexy even if I gain a hundred of pounds. Hahaha. We went to Tokyo Tokyo and ate there and after that, my Mom and younger sister met up with me again and they took me to Max's. The crew danced for me and gave me a cake with ice cream on top. And after hitting Max's. My Mom took me to Celine. I wasn't in the mood to shop since I was really tired and I wanted to go home. So I just grabbed the first bag that I like and handed it to the saleslady that was assisting my Mom since she was shopping for loads of clothes again HAHAHAHA. 

Here are the gifts I received: J.Co donuts from Joa and Pidz
The Celine bag from my Mom. It's perfect and it's even my fave color!

 After that, I received a birthday greeting from my best friend, Chy. It was on her Tumblr blog and she posted pictures during the house party I had last May 23 where my Dad really got loads of beer for my party. Yay! And during that day, my parents finally met my boyfriend
Here are the photos taken by Chy in close up:

I'm glad that I had a blast on my celebrations! And yay! I'm gaining weight because of the whole-week-celebrations and endless parties that are held at home since my grandparents from U.S. are here in the Philippines again. Yay! So yeah, time to diet tomorrow hahaha
