Strangers' Golden Wedding Anniversary

When I saw this car parked outside the church, I didn't pay that much attention to it. I've witnessed a lot of weddings at The San Agustin Church already. I had no plans of staying and wait for the wedding to finish. Original plan was to just say a little prayer inside and leave. But when I get inside, I learned that it was a celebration of a fruitful fifty years of marriage! Wonderful, isn't it? So I decided to stay and wait for the couple.

San Agustin Church is just too grand! It doesn't even need that much flowers or decorations. Being the sucker for love stories that I am, I made sure to take photos of the couple and I really wanted to see the love and happiness in their faces.
This little girl has a really cute and sweet face! I took many photos of her and this one's my favorite because she looked at the camera. Her smile is just too sweet. And look at those pink nails! She is soooo cute! :)

She looks lovely and radiant!
Fifty years of marriage is something that is definitely, definitely worth celebrating! To find someone who will stand by you and with you for that long time is such a wonderful blessing. I'm sure everyone dreams to have a long marriage like theirs. No marriage or relationship is perfect, but I'm sure being with the person who will never make you feel alone, who will love you no matter what., to have someone who will make you feel better even if nothing seems going right, to have someone whom you can have conversations with during your walks in the park is going to be one of the best treasures that a person could ever have in this lifetime! Aaaaaah! The list could go on and on, but my point is, I'm sure each one of us wants someone whom we can love and who will love us in return.

 Join me as a I say "Aaaaaaaawwwwww."  HAHA. The family and friends had loads of fun teasing these two to kiss over and over again! It was such a lovely sight. :) Perfect sight for hopeless romantics like uhm, me? Lol

 One of my favorite favorite movies is UP! Love stories of old couples are always so beautiful hear and/or witness.
Even though I do not know who these people are, I wish them moooooore years together! Their family must be so proud that their parents are still together and living a happy and strong life! And I am sure that the couple is also so proud and happy for their family!

So that's it! May we all have a long and lasting relationship like theirs! :)

I love their kiss! It's very natural.. Hindi sila awkward unlike when I see old couples that they just brush their lips lang to each other. Captured almost perfectly. Nakaka inggit nga...

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&#…
