For a week, I was given a chance to live a life that I wanted to live. I felt so happy. I felt so free. I felt responsible for myself. I did not worry much, in fact, I did not worry at all. Well, except for that one time, but I got it settled  right away. It was really fun. I know I said this already but I felt really, really, REALLY happy. I've been dreaming of living a life like that and I am really thankful I experienced it. Even for just a short while.

But then again, wouldn't it be a lot better if I were given a longer time to enjoy it? Yes, it was tiring. Even exhausting at some point, but if you were to ask, I can totally live a life like that! I would love to re-live that moment over and over again. I still cannot believe how so many things happened and had been accomplished for a week. So many thing had to be done and somehow, everything got settled. There was even an unexpected accomplishment which made everything more worthwhile. 

I do not even know who how to put into words how happy I've been. It's crazy. Happy. And now that it's over, it's making me really sad. And I know I cannot be sad. I shouldn't be sad. What I got to enjoy was an answered prayer and getting sad that it was over isn't good. I should always remind myself to be more thankful rather than feeling sad. There are just those times when I really couldn't help but to feel a little (okay, not just a little) sad. I'm happy that it happened, but sad that it had to end.

I know I will have my time for that again. And while waiting for that time, I will make sure to do the best I can to make myself ready for 'that'. 

Anyway, summer is coming and I don't know what the family's plan is! Excited? Maybe. Maybe not.

this is very insightful - short but meaningful. Don't be sad that it had to end because if it didn't you wouldn't feel happy if it happened again. It will just feel ordinary. The fact that happy days have to end is what makes those days extra special and meaningful to us. Just be happy that you were blessed to experience that even if its just for a few days. :)

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D

LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
