My Wedding Dress

Lace and tule. Shining and shimmering.
Just as I imagined it to be. My wedding gown fit for a simple garden wedding.
Plus the fascinator hat make the gown fashionable! Ala Kate Middleton perhaps?:)

God gave me Him.

It is a common saying that someone out there is MEANT for you. He or she may not be the kind of person you are looking for, the physical qualities and attitude may not match to your standards, that person will find a way to be in your life. Or maybe that person will be lead straight to you by God. 
I consider our story something unexpected but right..feels just so right. We were two strangers with two very different lives. It's funny how we just pass by each other at school during college years without knowing we would be each others' spouse in the future. I remember making fun of  him from afar because of his very masculine built and a very round head.HAHA. I called him Mr. Clean.HAHA again! 
Our paths crossed once again during reviews for the board exam. I am so confident that I had a crush on somebody else during review classes not knowing I would fall for someone sitting in front of me. (I'm actually smiling right now,reminiscing the days!) 
My heart was also having a broken heart syndrome that time which is why I was very cautious to love again. I never really thought he would be ROBOCOP( not a knight in shining armor). HAHA. He was always noticed for having a buff body and so they called him Robocop. He was the one who made my heart smile again and gave me the love I deserve. I keep on saying to myself "That's why it never worked with.... Or that's why I took the board exam during November 2009". All of my questions during the time I was depressed were answered. 
And now after 2 years, I'm still with the person who God gave to build a family with. We sleep each night side by side together with our little girl, then wake up every morning to a whole new light. I pray that our marriage be blessed always and that the passion and love be forever in hearts and in the years to come.

Sharing to you guys some pictures from our "Prenup shoot"

I'll post pictures from our Garden civil wedding this February as an opener for the love month! Stay inlove guys!

Just smile even if it hurts.

Floral blazer: Thrifted | Scallop top: Topshop | Necklace: Forever21 | Booties: Wade

This quote always gets me by. Yes, I just smile even if it hurts. I try to go live this wonderful life given by God like there's no bad shit in this world. Honestly, I have been bagging this burden for quite some time now. I won't go further with the details but I'm sure you guys can relate if somebody so dear to you, hurts you. Intentional or not, the damage is still painful. I can only wish I'd be given the perfect timing to come up to that person and cry my heart out, instead of crying inside pretending I'm okay with it. 

Why this sudden sad post?Let's just say news spread faster than light. I try to stay away from all those negative thoughts and emotions yet they keep coming in. Whenever I get confronted with this issue, I easily burst into tears. ( I confess I'm a very emotional person). No matter how hard I try to forget, I think these feelings are only repressed and that makes it harder for me to move on. SIGH.

I know I am too blessed with what I have right now. My family, my husband and daughter, and my friends. They keep me sane and alive. I guess this is just what LIFE is all about, you surround yourself with love and happiness and try to face those obstacles with a smile and bring them down!!!

PS. They say your outfit depends on your mood. I say dressing up makes me feel good about myself. So thank you clothes,bags and shoes for being my stress reliever.^_^

Maroon is Love.

Sheer pleated top: SM | Maroon flare pants: Forever21

First of all, my peg for this outfit was Toni Gonzaga's look in one episode of Happy Yipee Yehey.haha! I saw her wear maroon skinny jeans and a sheer top the same color of what I'm wearing above. Her look inspired me to find and buy the perfect jeans.. Doing some window shopping early January, I already saw those lovely pants hanging on the racks of Topshop and cost 2XXX. Boooo. Not giving up, I posted a status in facebook "Hoping to find the perfect maroon jeans". haha talk about desperate and bored. Then my friend Daphne, who works at Forever21 commented on my stat and said they're having huge sale at the store. The next day, I hurriedly went to F21 and saw the babies! From 1,000+, it was reduced to 500php! Yey for me! I was so happy plus it had the perfect fit! (# alasisterhoodofthetravellingpants)
For my top, I only wore this once last March during my 23rd birthday. I love the electric pleats and how the sheer cloth makes it more sexy but classy. It can be for a formal or a casual get up.

Today,  marks a New year from the Chinese calendar. I am a dragon and I'm hoping to make this year MY year. I have my goals set in finding a job to complete my applications as an RN abroad. Yes, that means hospital work, service to mankind. I also pray for more blessings to come to my family, to my husband and baby, to keep us away from bad things and be happy all year round. I wish you guys a very prosperous 2012!

Sheer polo as blazer: Thrifted | Tank top: Topshop | Shorts: Terranova | Shoes: Mendrez

Its almost the end of January and a few months from now, its Summertime again! My outfit spells easy breezy for me with all the lightness and texture. I wore this to a typical day at the mall with mom and Sam. 
Next month will also be our little girl's first birthday party! After months of thinking, I finally came up with the theme: ENCHANTED FAIRY PRINCESS! I can already imagine my little girl wearing fairy wings in all pink outfit!haha. I hope you guys watch out for my little girl's outfit because we had it custom made.^_^
