Hello! Here is another one of the three throwback posts I mentioned on this post. I came home from anti gravity yoga when the family decided on a semi-spontaneous lunch trip. I say semi because although this has always been planned on and talked about, no one was really certain as to when it will finally push through. As you may already know, I am a very curious person and houses such as these pique my interest so much, not to mention the fact how photogenic it is! This particular house (which I fondly call ‘The Magical House’, yes, I have a term of endearment for a house, get over it. LOL) is owned by the Uncle of one of my Aunts, who happens to be a professor at the University of the Philippines. I felt the need to mention this fact because whatever I feel whenever I enter the UP campus, I also feel whenever I’m at this house. It’s a beautiful mix of new, old and not so old and I love how I know I will never run out of things to explore no matter which part of the place I go to. The photos I took will never justify just how magical this place is! I cannot wait to go back again!
On a totally unrelated note, I just came home from a weekend trip to the beach. I’ve been feeling really tired all the time lately, and I account it to the fact that I’ve been sick for the past two days. I had tons of fun though! I’ll share my experiences and photos soon. Anyway, I’m going to sleep early tonight since I’m going to help my siblings get ready for their first day of school tomorrow. I actually do not have to (haha) but I’m pretty excited for them even if it’s their 192983639th ‘first day’ already.
I hope you all had an amazing day today! Thank you so much for dropping by! :)

I remember the time when I told a friend to stop being so hard on himself, especially since he can’t see himself the way I see him. Fast forward to now, I realized how fast karma worked because before you knew it, I started saying the exact same thing again, only this time, to myself. It may not be obvious, but I have always been a person of many insecurities, from the physical down to the emotional. Don’t get me wrong though. I don’t wallow in self pity, because if there’s anything I hate more than cold pizza or soggy fries, it is the presence of false modesty. I know what I am capable of, and I know how others see me, its just that sometimes I forget and over criticize myself and end up getting upset over something I shouldn’t be.
I’ve never worn tights with an outfit before but since it’s been raining like crazy lately, I decided to give it a try. Don’t you just love the tiny heart details? I do! Its girly but not overly so, which I’m really happy about since we all know that I will never be that girly girl. I know this outfit is pretty dark, but I’d like to believe I just dressed up this way to match the gloomy weather (and okay, maybe my gloomy mood also) I’m not exactly a ray of sunshine right now but being the optimistic person that I am, I know this too shall pass. Anyway, I’m currently packing stuff for our trip tomorrow. Summer break started really late for me (ah, the not so perks of being a student nurse!) but that’s okay. It’s better late than never, right?
I hope you all had a great day today! Thank you so much for dropping by! :)
