A Few Inches Taller

I have been lazy when it came to dressing up. I think this is also because I stopped blogging for a while. Although there are occasional work outfits posted in Instagram, it still feels different having photos taken once again. It felt awkward doing this after roughly 2 years (has it been that long?) . I'm not sure if this is even blog worthy for you.

So what have I been busy with while I wasn't blogging? Work is one. A big chunk of my time daily is spent in the office. Not that I hate it, I'm actually really enjoying it, and I'm happy with the people I work with. I'm learning a lot of different things from different people which is why I love what I do. In fact, I think I like what I do better than ever. Or maybe, just maybe, I've learned to really appreciate everything that I have.

During this nth hiatus, I realized that I'm the worst multitask-er ever. I'm not very good at dealing with so many things at once. I have to stop and deal. I think to make it simple, I've been really busy enjoying my "me-time". Time not spent worrying about anything. No one to please. I didn't care about too many things. I stopped putting too much pressure on myself (or at least I try everyday). I tried dreaming instead of planning. I've spent my money on things that will make me happy and not feel guilty about it. I've spent time with people that are happy to see me happy. People that are happy to see me successful. I chose to spend time with people with genuine friendship and love. Spent time not caring too much about what I'm wearing and not worrying to miss out on events or worry about how I can keep up with the world, no pressure. It was a good break. It felt like growing up a few inches taller. And now I'm back because I was reminded about why I blog in the first place. I blog because it makes me happy. Here are some photos of myself trying to look like a fashion blogger in lazy basic pieces.

I wore this yesterday before heading out to meet my sisters for mass and early dinner. The hat is there to hide them black roots!

Hat from SM Accessories // knitted top from Cotton On // Denim pants from Bench (I love this a lot!) // Shoes from Payless Shoe Store // Bag from Prada

I wore my everyday accessories. I'm into investing on accessories of value. I guess the older you get the more you want value for your hard earned money. Although I still can't stop drooling on some rare cool ones, I really can't remember the last time I bought a statement necklace or anything like it. The beaded bracelet was a gift from a friend last Christmas.

Mixed my name necklace with my turquoise glass beads.

Shoes from Payless. I got it for less than 1k. Score! ;)

And lastly, the bag that I will love forever.

Okay I'm off to head back home so I can make it on time for my favorite soap- SBPAK. So what? Don't judge. haha! Bye loves!

Forgot Password?

This is a photo taken a while back when I went to Palawan with my family. Forgive the quality, I used my phone for this shot.

I know it's been a while. My blog just had to rub it off my face when I realized I have forgotten my password. I  know I should not start this off by gushing about how time flies. I feel like I do that every time I come back from a long vacation.

I wanted to post a photo diary here just to show what kept me busy while I was inactive in the blogsphere. But I thought I'd just share my Instagram account. Thanks for making that easier!

It feels great to be typing using this old familiar keyboard. I browsed though my past blogs quickly and I can't help but be reminded of the leaps I have taken in the not so distant past. A lot happened. There were some wins and losses. A lot of tests to the character and lessons to keep. I'd like to believe that I have stepped out of my comfort zone in many ways and I let my guards and walls down more and more often. It's a welcome break to monotony and it feels really great to be truly happy.

I am planning to share more and celebrate more wins with you again from now on. Taking cue from this promise, Let me end this blog post for I need to drop by the laundromat for my Sunday duties and head off to my sister's house for dinner.

Happy to be back! Until the next blog post my loves. Happy Sunday!
