we’re here to stay

tcp01

Lately I’ve been feeling quite stressed and restless because of school works and my other responsibilities. It has been physically and emotionally draining me out making me constantly worry about every thing. So, when I’m home and alone, I listen to this particular playlist that I made which is made up of songs from different artists.

January Faves

janfaves1

Hello guys! After a long hiatus, I’m finally back. Last December, my mother decided to disconnect our WiFi plan (Globe) because it’s suuuuper slow. She applied for a PLDT DSL plan on the first week of January and we still don’t have an internet connection up until now. I’m telling you, it’s really hard having no wifi. I’m using my phone’s hotspot to use wifi in my laptop. I’ll probably go to PLDT tomorrow to follow-up the wifi installation. So, now you know basically why I haven’t posted in a long time. Huhu. I missed blogging so much.
Anyways, here are my favorites for the month of January!

JANUARY FAVES

Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover (Php 599, National Bookstore)
I’ve read this book on its ebook version in 2013 and I loved it so much. I’ve actually read almost all of Colleen’s books because they are so so so good. Back then, I couldn’t find her books here in Tarlac because the branch here only sells mainstream authors. So basically, there’s no variety. But when I saw this book on the stand, I couldn’t help but buy it. Point of Retreat is the second book in the Slammed series. It still is one of my fave all time series.

H Woman Body Mist (Php 180*, Tupperware*)
I am actually not sure of the price and where I bought it (I don’t know if the supplier is tupperware, avon or what) but the smell is really good. I’ve received numerous of compliments about this. My lolas actually want to purchase this and I was also planning to buy another one but when I ordered it on the boutique, they said that it’s already out of stock. I hope they re-stock though because I don’t want to constantly change the colognes I wear.

Cross Necklace (Php 250, Zalora PH)
I’ve been wanting to buy a cross necklace for so long and when I downloaded Zalora’s app, I searched for it and BAM! A stainless cross necklace for only 250 with free shipping! SAY WHAT? I love wearing it almost everyday, even on school days, even when it doesn’t match my outfit.

Nude Wallet (Php 300, SM Dept. Store)
I didn’t plan on buying this wallet but being silly me, I bought this one on impulse. I saw it and then I went straight to the cashier. I really love it though. It has a coin purse in it that is removable so it’s like a 2-in-1 wallet thing.

MeNow Kissproof Lipstick (Php 145, Online shop)
I got a lot of compliments from using this one. So many people have asked where I bought it, what shade I use (this one is #15), etc. My friends even ordered their own. I bought this one because I really like matte lipsticks. I’ve never heard this product before but I just had to buy it because the color was pretty and I’m a sucker for lipsticks. Anyway, this product is really good but I don’t recommend wearing it everyday because it dries my lips so fast (it’s matte, Bee. duh) but it’s prolly bec I have dry lips. Lol.

I guess that’s it for this post. I’ll update you again real soon and I hope we already have legit internet connection by then. *fingers crossed*

Palawan Escapade

palawan

This post is waaaaay over due. Hello people! I’m really sorry for not posting for more than a month. I’ve been meaning to post this one since we got home from the trip but I’ve procrastinated a lot for the past few weeks so I needed to get my requirements done pronto.

I didn’t take much photos from the trip because our tours mostly were either at night, in the dark or in the middle of the river/sea.  Some of the photos were from my mother’s cam roll. Photo credits to my mom. Lol

COLLAGE

Anyways, last November 27-December 1 was our Palawan trip. If you do not know Palawan, it’s a magnificent island in the Philippines (you should go google it out, you might want to go there someday). Our flight was supposedly November 27 but we got held up because of the strong wind.  My brother, uncle, a churchmate of ours and I were stuck in the airport for a night. It was pretty traumatic, actually. (lol, kidding) We slept in the holding area because we didn’t want to go to the hotel accommodation. We thought it was a hassle. And though we didn’t quite get the amount of sleep we deserve, it was a good choice since the hotel wasn’t any better according to some of the people who also got held up.

We got boarded the day after and landed right around noon. It was pretty much exhausting. My parents wanted to go straight to the tour but we were pretty much stinky and tired so rested for a bit and took a bath and then went straight ahead to Daluyon Beach. From there we were supposed to head to the Underground River but due to bad weather, the coast guard advised to cancel the tour. We didn’t complain, the weather was pretty dangerous.

Ate Dayne (our churchmate), Bence (mi bro), Dad, Me and my Mom.

The next day tho, the weather wasn’t bad so we finally went to the Underground River. We rode a boat to go to the island where the Underground River was.  To be honest, I was really scared because it was a first for me to ride a boat and be in the middle of the sea. I’ve watched numerous of movies where boats sink, and sharks kill and piranhas too and all I could think about was my future coz I don’t ever want to die there. I really fear dying on a plane crash and drowning, I kid u not.

I wish I could show you photos of how amazing the Underground River was, but it was too dark inside. Lol. It was beautiful and when you see it, you’ll be awestruck. No wonder it belongs to the New 7 Wonders of Nature. 🙂

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is located about 50 km north of the city of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. It features a limestone karst mountain landscape with an 8.2 km. navigable underground river. A distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. It includes major formations of stalactites and stalagmites, and several large chambers. The lower portion of the river is subject to tidal influences. The underground river is reputed to be the world’s longest. At the mouth of the cave, a clear lagoon is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water’s edge. Monkeys, large monitor lizards, and squirrels find their niche on the beach near the cave.

We also went to different tourist spots such as Mitra’s Farm and Baker’s Hill where I tasted―for the first time―crocodile sisig. Croc meat tasted like ordinary meat but I really don’t like eating exotic food so that might be the last.

We also did the Iwahig Firefly Watching. Again, we rode a boat but in pitch dark this time. I was with my mom and ate Dayne. It was still windy so we didn’t see much fireflies but the view of the night sky was breathtaking. There were plenty of stars that night and it was so beautiful.

The day before our flight home, we went island hopping from Honda Bay to Pambato Reef to Luli Island and to Cowrie Island.

There are still so many places to explore in Palawan but sadly, we just stayed for 4 days because we have things to do back home. This trip crossed out many of things on my bucketlist and hopefully next year, I’ll experience more adventures! More wanders to come! <3

LIFE RECENTLY // VOL 2

LR2

  • I’ve been procrastinating a lot since the start of November, even when it comes to blogging. (sorry!!!)
  • My friends say that I’m sooooo thin (i mean thinner than before).  It’s all because of stress. Right now, I’m trying really hard to gain weight.
  • I really thought hell week’s over but boy am I so wrong!! I’ve been moping around, fearlessly dodging any responsibility that comes my way but it seems like my responsibilities whisper “you can run but you cannot hide” in my dreams.
  • Went to the salon and had my hair rebonded (and slightly dyed it).
  • Traveled all by myself the other day in a place I’m not familiar with and I survived. (yay!)
  • Currently having an itchy throat and a runny nose. I don’t wanna be sick. 🙁 🙁 🙁
  • Planning to collab with blogger friends soon + will be posting a giveaway later this month!
  • Will be leaving for Palawan (been dreaming bout this for y-e-a-r-s) on November 27 but currently not hyped because of all thiz stress (ya feel what i feel? huhu)
  • Oh, and I recently started using the Rejuvenating set from Professional Skin Care Formula by Dr. Alvin and will post a review after a month. He he
  • My mantra this week: eat healthy, blog queue posts, face responsibilities, be productive and lastly, survive the week.

‘Nuff of me, how’s your November so far lovely people? 🙂

LIFE RECENTLY

Hi! I’m sorry for not blogging for more than a week. School has been super tiring and it’s stressing and draining me out. I feeeel so emotionally and physically exhausted just thinking of the activities we did. To be honest, I already saved a draft that should’ve been posted on Thursday but decided not to blog it because it was blog post full of mehhhhhh. I promise to post more frequently these following days!

There’s a super typhoon right now in the Philippines and it’s really scary because of its strong wind. Electricity has been in and out since Saturday midnight so it was really hard for me to update you all. Thankfully, though, our province is now just Signal no. 1.

Earlier this morning, the rain stopped pouring and my mom and I went to the city to finish some appointments. We also went to SM and she bought me a few things which made me so ecstatic. Lol. Perks of being her PA for the day. Tomorrow, we’ll be going back to SM to check if there’s a 50mm lens available in the camera store (yay!).

As you can see (if it’s not obvious enough), I c hanged my theme into Mary Kate by Angie Makes. Remember my old post when I was desperately looking for a pre-made theme to buy?  Well I found one and it’s free! (But she does have a premium one that costs around 70$ I think?) Anyway, I really like the features of this theme. The one thing that I want to change is the size of the fonts. I think they’re too big. Lol. But all in all, I love it and I’m going to use this until I buy myself a custom made one.

Also, very recently, I started watching Scream Queens mainly bec I was intrigued and bec Emma Roberts is there. Also Ari and Nick and Lea. Soooooooo, although this tv series creeps me out I think it’s really gooood. It’s funny and I love what the Chanels wear. Lol.

What are you up to recently? 🙂


now watching: Scream Queens S01E05

Good to be back!

2

I’m finally back! My former domain (weirdbabe.info) expired a few months back. I chose not to renew my hosting because I was thinking of changing my domain name back then. Because I really want to blog, I tried blogging using a different platform (doyouknowbee @ tumblr) but I wasn’t really feeling it. I thought that if I was going to make this blogging a serious thing, then I really need to have my own domain.
So, here I am again with a new blog. I really had a hard time choosing a name for my blog. I asked my close friends for advice and decided that maybe this was “the one”. I like that I came up with the idea of finally putting my name as my domain. It certainly has a professional vibe into it.

BLOGGING + THESIS + EVERYTHING ELSE

It’s my final year in uni and yep, it’s going to be soooo hard to balance all the acads and extra responsibility but we will get through this together. Hopefully, I don’t get preoccupied with other things and neglect blog-related stuff again. You know me, I tend to get so distracted by many things.

Recently, I discovered few blogs that actually inspired me to take risks and be better in blogging. I get so giddy just thinking of all the things I’m planning to do/work on this blog. Ahhhhhhh. Really, it’s good to finally be back.
