Super New, Super You: Maybelline Super BB Cream Giveaway Contest

“I love you, that’s why I’m trying to change you.”
That was probably the biggest lie I’ve heard from a past relationship. After years and years of being told I’m not lady-like enough, or street smart enough, or responsible enough, or thin enough, or fair enough, or flawless enough, I eventually (oh god, thankfully) figured out that I have had enough. A person who loves you won’t make such a big deal out of your flaws. And a person who loves you won’t try to make you fit into a “perfect girl” cookie-cutter mold and hope you come out as his very own “ideal girlfriend”. 
Now, don’t go around thinking I’m this expert love guru, master of relationshipsbecause I am not. I might as well be “halaman” til God-knows-when cause I’m pretty good at ruining my own relationships with my awkwardness, too. Lol. But one thing I’m certain at is that love shouldn’t be complicated, and that love shouldn’t pull you down, and that love shouldn’t force you to pretend to be someone you’re not.

“I’m trying to protect you because you won’t survive by yourself.”
He used to say I’m such a damsel in distress. I’ve been told that I won’t last a week out alone. But you know what?
I like to think that I’ve come out of this a lot stronger, and a little bit wiser. And it’s about time I prove myself that sometimes, the princess doesn’t need saving.

And in an endless pursuit of truth, I declare that 2016 will be the year I learn to be strong— even if it means having to journey on my own.
What’s your New Year’s resolution? We’d love to hear it, so please SHARE IT WITH US! 🙂

Khaleesi Diva Day: A Doggie Birthday Party!

Ever wondered how a doggie party looks like? Well, yesterday, Khaleesi the Diva–yup, that adorable chihuahua on Instagram– celebrated her first birthday, and Hachiko and I were invited!
The theme of the party was Chanel, so everything was in classy black and white and pink. 
Oh, and see that big cake over there? It’s made of liver and it wasn’t served to us humans, but to the doggie guests!! HUHUHU SO CUTE!!!

These chocolate cupcakes were served only to us humans though. Lol. Sorry, doggies!
Loot bags for the doggie guests!! 🙂 Thanks for Hachiko’s cute ribbon and snacks, Khaleesi!
My sis Jean was the one who invited me to the party. We’ve always made jokes about us growing up as crazy dog ladies and us being such #titasofmanila, but when yesterday just happened, we realized we’ve become amigas to a whole new level….
The ladies and gentledogs came in nothing but their best outfits! 

What do they eat, you ask?
LIVER CUPCAKES!!!! (everything’s edible, from the icing down to the paper cup made of rice)

“I want more, please!”

Hachiko loved it! <3
Squad goals!!

The real party happened under the table.. lol.

Human guests came in with doggie treats too!

It was so nice seeing our dogs play around and be happy!! 🙂 
“BAKIT GANUN MAS MASAYA PA AKO SA ASO KO????”, I semi-shouted in front of everyone because I was just too happy. <3

The beautiful birthday celebrant! Hey, Khaleesi the Diva!

It was really nice meeting new friends that day!
Please follow their Instagram accounts for a daily dose of cuteness!

Diary Entry: Halfway Across the Bridge

Today could have ended just like any other day. Except it didn’t.
I hate crossing long bridges, but this story happened on one.
      Quarter to six. Everyone looked tired. And everyone wanted to go home. But in spite of the smoke and the noise and the crowd and the (deteriorating) overpass, the sky above was beautiful. Shades of blue and lavender painted the sky. Deep, soft, and warm. Dark, but not quite. Dusk has arrived.
      And I guess I wasn’t the only one who felt at peace then, too, because no one on the bridge was in a hurry— rush hour has ended, at least in our area. In front of me was a group of high school girls walking (and whispering and giggling) together; to my left was an old man taking a nap on a mat next to the 50-peso belts he sold for a living; and to my right, a father holding his daughter’s hand.
      But, with everything happening so quickly, that false sense of peace shattered in a matter of seconds. Everything happened in a blur, and all I remember seeing was the father letting go of his daughter’s hand. And I remember seeing him pushing her aside. Him sprinting to the other side, as fast as he could, without looking over his shoulder. And his daughter, a four-year-old in a faded yellow dress, standing there, shocked, in the middle of a long bridge that might have seemed like a whole continent to her. Frozen, I stood at her side. She cried hysterically and shouted, “Daddy? Daddy? Daddy?” And it went on and on. “Daddy? Daddy? Daddy?”
      The father eventually turned his head to our direction.
      “Daddy? Daddy? Daddy?”
       He looked at her.
       “Daddy? Daddy? Daddy?”
       And then, our eyes met.
      Mine spoke of shock, confusion, and all the big questions,
and his, of sorrow, desperation, and guilt.
      I wanted to do something. I wanted to talk to him, for what it’s worth. His daughter needed answers. His daughter needed his love. His daughter needed him.
      He ran back to where we stood. The sky was turning gray. Quickly, he picked his child from the ground. Our eyes met again. He carried her in his arms. I wanted to talk to him. But night has fallen, and off they disappeared, by the end of the bridge. And everyone else moved on with their own lives, without a clue of what had just happened.
     I guess it’s true: life just doesn’t stop for anyone.
Affected. Saddened. Confused.
I am a walking whirlwind of emotions. A girl with so much questions.
Was it done out of love or out of guilt?
Was there something I should have said?
Why do we give in when we think that no one’s watching?
Why do the people we love hurt us most?
Why do people leave?
If you know of someone with the answers— please, let me know.
