book review: all your perfects by colleen hoover

Disclaimer: I might post mild spoilers but if that’s okay with you then please proceed.

I seriously do not know where to start with this review. I have been waiting for this book since forever!!!!! Colleen has been teasing us with excerpts on her social media accounts many many times and I’ve been calm and patient enough to look away and not spoil myself. LOL As you may know, I’ve been a fan of Colleen since the day I’ve read her first book and you can even tell how much I loved her works through my previous review of Maybe Someday. And if I’m going to be honest, out of all her books, Maybe Someday and All Your Perfects are the ones that really touched me.

Hi, everyone. I’ve been quiet for a few weeks, I know. My bandwidth exceeded and I was extremely busy with my job so I couldn’t post as much as I wanted to. But recently, I had just crossed something off of my bucket list that’s worth sharing.

year end clothing haul

Oops, I did it again. *cue in britney*, kidding. December was really a month of impulse buying for me. I mean, there were sale items everywhere! I actually didn’t go to the mall that much during the holiday season but alas, my old friends aka online shops came to haunt me. I wasn’t planning on buying stuff for myself but I just couldn’t help it. I told myself it wouldn’t hurt that much to treat yourself once in a while. After all, it was the month of giving! And so I gave in. These were the stuff I bought on the last week of December.

adios, 2017!

Is it just me or did you also feel that 2017 just flew by so fast? I can’t believe it’s already 2018! Like every year, I started 2017 with a list of goals to accomplish. To be honest, I really like coming up with goals because for me it was something to look forward to. Here are some of the things I ticked off of my 2017 goals.

Lately I’ve been reading books again. It felt good to get lost in literature. I feel like I’ve never felt this way for so long. I lost plenty of sleep because of this but it was definitely worth it.

HELLO AGAIN

I hope everyone’s doing fine! I actually don’t know how to start this post.. lol. Let’s just say I’m lost for words (or I just don’t know where to start). I’m pretty sure I’ll be one of the nominees for 2017’s Worst Blogger of the Year because I only had less than 5 posts on the first half of this year. I, myself, couldn’t believe it either. Well, it’s partially my fault for not making time and I guess, there’s still time to make up for that.

My blog will be turning 2 this month but I’ve been blogging for almost a decade now. Thinking about it, it amazes me how long I’ve been in the blogosphere and it actually makes me nostalgic how I grew as a blogger. I’m really grateful for the people who visit my blog and are really appreciative of what I offer. They make my heart warm. Ahhhhhhhhhh <3 <3 <3 <3

There will be some changes in my blog. Change is good, aye? I promise to post frequently now—I know I’ve said that tons of time but this time, I’ll be true to my word. To continue where we left last time, here are some of the things that happened since my last update:

  • A new semester started which means work work work for meee
  • I teach two subjects—one subject for 6 diff sections and another for 1 section. WORK OVERLOADDD
  • I’m a student once again, recently I enrolled in Masters classes. I’m taking up Masters of Arts in Education major in English. I want to stress out that THE CLASSES ARE FREAKING INTIMIDATING. lmao huhuhu
  • Opened up a new Cell group (Life group).
  • Became the adviser of the school’s publication (which is really scary, i admit)
  • Experienced extreme stress last August (for the whole month. Screw you, August)
  • I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing (lol kidding)

From the bullets above, you might notice how busy my schedule is. I don’t even know what rest and sleep really means now. If there is a quit button in ADULTING, I will smash the hell out of it. lol. Kidding aside, I know my schedule is so occupied but I will try my hardest to update from time to time. And it would really mean a lot if you suggest topics you want to see or whatevah (because there are times when I want to blog but I don’t know what to blog) so I really really want to hear from you.

Thank you for sticking with me all these time x

the reason why i was on hiatus

It’s not that dramatic. 

Hi, guys! I know I’ve been MIA on the past 5 months and I’m truly sorry for that. Blogging has been my hobby since I was in elementary and has always been a source of happiness for me. I’ve found new friends and have experienced new things because of this platform. But, ever since I graduated in college, things have changed. I’ve also changed in a lot of ways. My job as a teacher took a toll on me. I constantly have mood swings and feel irritated most of the time. It was kind of stressful, actually. And I needed a lot of time to adjust. On top of that, I was involved in a car accident last March. It wasn’t really serious. I had no major injuries–just a bump on the forehead. Still, that time, I felt the need to take a break from life–including blogging.

korean beauty products feat. medicube!!

Acne has been one of the major problems of my skin. I almost have never experienced having a clear skin and that kind of  totally sucks. Because of it, my confidence when it comes to physical appearance became pretty low during my high school years. Until now, I still feel self conscious every time I talk to people which also makes me so anxious. It can be pretty depressing to have this struggle, I know. Right now, it’s pretty hard to have a clear skin because it’s summer here in the Philippines and the heat is so intense. It gets sweaty and irritating real fast after just being out in the sun for a few seconds. Sweat with the combination of pollution is not really the formula you need on beating acne. Luckily, I’ve found a brand that produces cosmeceutical products that are great for acne-prone skin.

ZAMBALES GETAWAY

SUPER DELAYED POST, Y’ALL. Last November 29, my co-teachers and I went on a roadtrip straight after class. I wasn’t really planning to join because I was trying to budget my money (bec it’s almost Christmas & also my birth month) but with just a little persuasion, I agreed to go. I was having a rough week that time, and I thought maybe I could hurt my salary for just a tad bit to have a stress-free mini vacay. And so I did.
