School Girls!

Yesterday, we were made to watch two looooong videos in class. Just when I was a  few seconds away from dying out of boredom, the department’s assistant came into the room fifteen minutes before the dismissal and announced that our prof won’t be able to make it to class that day. Being the girl-with-the-shortest-attention-span-ever, I decided to cut the last 15 minutes of class, instead of finishing the movie…. just because. 
The moment I grabbed my backpack to head out of the room, half of the class was already on their way out as well. So I was like, “ehrmehgerd, im joining the bandwagon okeyzzzzzz yolo mehehe”
—————————-
Here are my OOTD shots that day to commemorate my being “badass” (ehrrm, nah really).
OUTFIT 
Polo: Forever 21
Top: Charlie

Aaand here I am with some of my classmates. Heehee, I’ve always wanted to take OOTD shots with them just because they’re super pretty and sweet, and they remind me of sunshine and unicorns who puke nothing but glittery rainbows<3 hahahawhat.
A barkada photo op is never complete without the Master Jeje pose.
Okay, I have to end this post right here. I’m off to UP Diliman in a while for a fun shoot with a friend! yippeee!

Of iced coffee and chocolate sundaes

 My good friend Ken told me the other week that he much preferred seeing my hair tied back. I don’t know, really. As a kid, I’ve been teased a lot about my face shape- I was even called Horse-shey back in gradeschool-and I felt that tying my hair in a pony tail just emphasizes how long and round it is (LOL). But then again, why listen to the mean things that people say, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha so Ken, if you’re reading this, well I hope this makes you happy. JK. Kapal. Lol.

Yesterday, I met up with an old friend of mine, Tiara. 
I just really want to shout to the whole world how much of a blessing she is in my life, really ๐Ÿ™‚
The past week has been pretty tough for me, and I felt very alone. But just when I I felt that every important person in my life turned away from me, God sent me Tiara. She’s been such an encouragement and inspiration to me lately. I realized the value of finding friends who would not only be true to you,  but would also help you abide and grow in Him. 
Tiara, thank you for the wonderful talk, and for inviting me to youth service. It was lovely catching up with you! I can’t wait for more dates and clinginess to come. Hahaha!!
——————————————-
Below are just some shots of my fail and silly OOTD— with the matching Mcdo merchandise and all. hahahaha! 
OUTFIT DETAILS
Polo: thrifted
Jeans: Forever 21
Shoes: Cotton On
Bag: Michael Kors
This bag is very special to me. Not only because it’s my first ever MK, but also because it was a special gift given to me by mom ๐Ÿ™‚ I think its design is very classy, and its size is very convenient, since I tend to bring my whole house with me all the time. HAHAHAHA.
This pair of flats is another one of my fashion steals in the Great Singapore Sale. Can you believe I just got this at around 180 pesos (5 Singaporean dollars)?? haha
I’m currently investing in closed shoes/ flats right now, since I need them for org meetings and events. If you guys have any suggestions on where to find cute and affordable ones, please do leave a comment below!! ๐Ÿ˜€
Haha and now for Tiara’s OOTD! yep yep. She’s a pretty laddyyyyyy, aint she?
Just some lovely girls I met at youth service that day ๐Ÿ™‚
Thank You for the lessons I’ve learned, and for new beginnings, too!  ๐Ÿ™‚

31 Girl: Let Beauty Radiate Within!

“I find my security in Him because I cannot be separated from the love of God. Gone are the nights that I cry myself to sleep, thinking that I am nobody; that I am without purpose; that I am worthless. I am Godโ€™s princess, and as said in Proverbs 31:10, I am worth far more than rubies!”

31 Girl is a Christian campaign which aims to share Godโ€™s love to those who currently have a relationship with Him, and most importantly to those who have not yet come to know Jesus Christ personally. We pray that this campaign encourages girls to find comfort and assurance that theyโ€™re not alone. ”

I’ve made a mess of myself for the past couple of months. I felt dirty; I felt lost; worst of all,  I felt like I was a stranger to myself.

But I was reminded that God loves me with an undying love– and it is by grace that I have been saved by Him.

Right now, I’m trying to get myself back on track.Sure, there are plenty of storms that I’m going through right now (to the point that I went through counselling last week just because I was heartbroken and depressed), but after it all, I remember that God is my stronghold, my fortress– because of Him, no weapon formed against me shall remain.

I’m not a perfect Christian (well, who is, in the first place?) I still sin and I still make mistakes– a lot of them. But the beauty of it all is the grace that covers me, that saves me, that reminds me that I am His daughter, His princess. I am not a mistake in this world. In fact, as  it is said in His word,  I AM WORTH FAR MORE THAN RUBIES! ๐Ÿ™‚
