and it was all yellow

decided to "tone down" my sunday outfits by wearing a simple Calvin Klein dress and flats for an almost casual sunday look. i don't know what's wrong, but my right foot really hurts and i think it's because of the white boots i wore the other day.

strange because my foot never hurt before, and when i wear other shoes my feet don't ache like this at all! needless to say, there is a lesson to be learned here.

i am NEVER buying shoes from SM - Parisian ever again. NEVER.

that might be too dramatic a conclusion but i think it's the right thing to do. unless i want to wear flat shoes for the rest of my life, i will steer away from cheap department store shoes unless i'm really sure that it is of good quality.

*sigh* guess i have to throw it in the bin then?

i am a sucker for online shopping. yes. for those who don't know - well, the secret is out. sometimes i could buy from 3 to 4 different stores in just a week! i am THAT crazy when it comes to clothes. lately, i've been going crazy over shoes and i thought i also needed to invest in some darn good shoes - so i went ahead and bought 2 pairs.

the first one arrived last wednesday and it is divine, although the heels are 5" high (Lord knows how I would be able to walk in those!), i had no complaints about anything else.

today my 2nd pair arrived, this one from a different store. needless to say, i was pretty disappointed. i dislike the shoes :( they were really cheap when i bought them, and i was having second thoughts about buying them. but i really liked the design, and the one i wanted cost 5x as much as this one so i thought "why not? it's so cheap anyway!" but i guess i learned my lesson.

things are priced that way for a reason. so the next time i find a shoe worth less than P500, i'm looking the other way! i'd rather buy something expensive as long as i'm assured of the quality and material :)

so this is me today, i tried on the denim on denim look and i think i did ok? :)

could have been

Went for a photo shoot today with my friends. Usually, I love dressing up and taking pictures.. but today I didn't really feel like it. Maybe because I didn't like the place? Or maybe I just wasn't that inspired to do a shoot today. But anyhow, I will be posting the pictures hopefully in my next entry.

So after the shoot we hung out for a while longer before heading home. On our way to the car , I saw an ex-something of mine inside his car. We talked for a while, asking about each other, being polite (i guess?). The one thing I noticed from him was that he seemed really different - like good different too. Although I don't know if it's just an act, or he really changed.

But it is kinda sad thinking about past guys whom fate never gave a chance. If the cards were played differently and things were a little better, I bet we could have been something, him and I.

go on, lie


everyone does it, no one is exempted from it.

today, we went to watch The Karate Kid with my family and in the movies, they never let you bring your camera inside because of fear that you might be a film pirate trying to steal the movie to sell to others. that may be true, but i don't think people who go to those kinds of malls do that.

anyway, i always bring my camera with me in my bag because you'll never know when you will want to take pictures. normally when i watch a movie, they never get my camera because i hide it so well. but on this particular check up, the guard got a hold of my camera. it wasn't in a normal camera case, but in a quilted pouch. he got it and asked me "is this a camera?" i could have said yes and just left it with him until after the movie, but i find it such a hassle to have to do it. i'm not a film pirate anyway, so why should they take my camera? so i said NO. it's a phone. then i took out my other quilted pouch with had my phone and showed him the phone. he opened the camera pouch to take a peek, and i thought i would get busted for lying to him. i almost blurted out "oh, it's a camera." but he let me go. apparently, he believed me.

when i sat down, i should have felt relieved that i got to go through, but i didn't. instead, i felt wretched and guilty for lying. crazy, but my conscience got the best of me. now you could say that it was a small lie, a white lie - it wasn't like i lied about killing someone. but even the smallest of lies have it's way of creeping up on you. i tried to tell myself that it was fine, at least i didn't get caught and it was just a tiny lie. but what if i did get caught? the guard would catch me lying and plus, i would get totally embarrassed to have been lying about a measly camera.

i don't know what has gotten over me, but i feel like i've become different. like, good different though :) i have chosen to be a better person, and the first step is to NOT lie. i know that now. actions always have consequences and i just got lucky this time.

but next time, i'm not so sure if i'll still be lucky enough.☻

pills pills pills

Lately I've been surrounded by pills, pills and more pills. Somehow over the years I have become the official pill organizer in the family. I take care of everyone's medicines and place them in their respective containers to make life easier for everyone. I haven't done this in a while but now it seems like people need more and more medicines and vitamins to maintain good health. How depressing.

But on a lighter note, happy independence day Philippines! I guess everyone takes independence for granted just because we've never experienced what our forefathers experienced. I cannot imagine life without the freedom to do whatever, be whoever and wear whatever. How the Filipinos lived that way for over 300 years is waaaay beyond me, but I am really thankful for the freedom we have today :D

Today's outfit:
Top - Forever21
Skirt - Zara
Blue belt
Shoes - Promod
