Hmm... I'm not really an expert on this matter. But I do know that loving isn't easy, that getting hurt is a part of it. This is no reason to avoid it though since it's probably one of the best experiences one can have.

Diane von Furstenberg always knows how to make women feel and look sexy. This mini dress would perfectly hug a woman's curves. I bet wearing it would make one feel like a modern princess.

This is my third entry to the sparkle with Coach contest. I love the shot of the model, she looks so real and uninhibited hence I thought the "just be you" slogan would be perfect for her. I love hats, I don't wear them as much since it's too hot here but I do collect them and I want that Coach beret for myself. As apparent in the outfit, I'm a sucker for pink especially this particular shade. It looks so clean and youthful. How I wish it's not such a hassle to shop online, passing through customs is just annoying and expensive. Online shopping should be tax-free!!!

The shade of blue used in the shoes is divine, I think that's my favorite shade of blue. magnificent!I am really into rings nowadays, the bigger the better. I like them with lots of colors, I usually wear 3 to 4 at a time.

Inspired by Vera Wang's Glam Princess. I don't really know how it smells yet but I do love the bottle. I really love the gown, I saw this in Mix, Greenbelt 5 before. I stopped and stared at it for awhile. I love the simplicity and the color. It kinda reminded me of the gown Kate Hudson wore in How to lose a guy in 10 days but in a different color and collar design.

This set was inspired by the recent tragedy that pierced a lot of Filipinos. The massacre was just devastating. It's scary to know that there are a lot of people out there capable of doing such violence. Hopefully, the victims and their families will get the justice that they deserve soon. The murderers need to pay for their actions.
To all the victims, you'll be in our prayers.

is also good and hot but adam's vocal capabilities and performances
are just uncomparable. The result is just depressing but nonetheless
I'm pretty sure Adam's gonna rock the billboard chart!!!
Adam, you're still my American Idol!!!

much like the philippines but with better weather! It reminds me so
much of home specially because we stayed in a relative's house, kinda
cool meeting some of my 2nd cousins, unkles, and grandparents!
However, it's hard to go around if you don't know spanish since very
few people know english.. Not even in stores, you have to get by using
sign language! It's a little different to the fast paced life that is
common in the states which makes me kinda lousy.
Don't have much pictures to share since I haven't been to a lot of
their attractions but i did find some nice shoes from an outlet store
Shopping in general, however, is not advisable because imported stuff
here are more expensive than the states.

world, the grand canyon. It's pretty amazing, the view is just
fantastic. We spent most of our time taking pictures but since im
uploading this thru my iphone, my photos are limited.
But we couldn't really spend a lot of time on the deck because it was
soooo cold... Cold for someone who came from a very humid Manila.
Others were walking in their shorts and spags... So weird!!

Anyway, I had my eye checked this morning since my grade is not getting any better and I wanted to know other options so that I can get rid of my contacts and glasses. And the verdict is... actually I was referred to a retinal specialist and it was scheduled on the 18th of May since our itinerary is already full til the 17th. So if the doctors can correct whatever thickening that I have in my retina, I might have to stay and not go home yet on the 19th which was my booked flight back to Manila. This is both good and bad news for me, bad because I might need to LOA for a term or 2, good because I'll have more time to travel, I really want go East.
