It's always nice to take a break from stress every once in a while and to us girls, it's always effective to go on SHOPPING or when you had your heart broken, it's called RETAIL THERAPY. 
So when I have time, I go shopping -- but malls nowadays are too little to find something that's really worth our money and time, so I always end up on something that's really convenient to do -- ONLINE SHOPPING. It requires only internet and money, you don't have to drive all the way to the mall and walk around for hours and end up with nothing on hand. 

So, to get straight to the point, I started to create a little Online Store via Multiply Since I have realized that some of my things were not really functional to keep, specially if they are too much for just ME. 
Since I have relatives from the US they always ship different kinds of stuffs like clothes, shoes, beauty products and bags etc.etc. -- of course it is every little girls' fantasy to have it all but I realized, I wasn't a little girl anymore, I needed to be practical and wise when it comes to my clothes and other material things. So, whenever we have excess BAGS or CLOTHES from the packages that I haven't used or newly bought items that I've suddenly decided not to use -- I SELL THEM ONLINE. 
I'm not a full time seller but whenever I have things that I think I don't need, I post them online and through it, I can be able to earn little money from time to time. 
So, If you guys are a fan of online shopping, feel free to browse my little online shop and maybe you can find something useful to you. 

Thank you and God Bless!

Born This Way

It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M 
Just put your paws up 
'Cause you were born this way, baby 

My mama told me when I was young 
We are all born superstars 
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on 
In the glass of her boudoir 

"There's nothin' wrong with lovin' who you are" 
She said, "'Cause He made you perfect, babe" 
"So hold your head up, girl and you you'll go far, 
Listen to me when I say" 

I'm beautiful in my way, 
'Cause God makes no mistakes 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 

Don't hide yourself in regret, 
Just love yourself and you're set 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 
(Born this way) 

Ooo, there ain't no other way 
Baby, I was born this way 
Baby, I was born this way 
(Born this way) 
Ooo, there ain't other way 
Baby, I was born this way 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 

Don't be a drag, just be a queen 
Don't be a drag, just be a queen 
Don't be a drag, just be a queen 
Don't be! 

Give yourself prudence and love your friends 
Subway kid, rejoice the truth 
In the religion of the insecure 
I must be myself, respect my youth 

A different lover is not a sin 
Believe capital H-I-M (hey, hey, hey) 
I love my life, I love this record and 
Mi amore vole fe yah 

I'm beautiful in my way, 
'Cause God makes no mistakes 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 

Don't hide yourself in regret, 
Just love yourself and you're set 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 

Ooo, there ain't no other way 

Baby, I was born this way 
Baby, I was born this way 
(Born this way ) 
Ooo, there ain't other way 
Baby, I was born way 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 

( Queen , 
Don't be , Queen ) 

Don't be drag, just be a queen 
Whether you're broke or evergreen 
You're black, white, beige, chola descent 
You're lebanese, you're orient 
Whether life's disabilities 
Left you outcast, bullied or teased 
Rejoice and love yourself today 
'Cause baby, you were born this way 

No matter gay, straight or bi 
lesbian, transgendered life 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born to survive 

No matter black, white or beige 
chola or orient made 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born to be brave 

I'm beautiful in my way 
'Cause God makes no mistakes 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 

Don't hide yourself in regret, 
Just love yourself and you're set 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way, yeah! 

Ooo, there ain't no other way 
Baby, I was born this way 
Baby, I was born this way 
(Born this way ) 
Ooo, there ain't other way 
Baby, I was born this way 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way 

I was born this way, hey! 
I was born this way, hey! 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way, hey! 

I was born this way, hey! 
I was born this way, hey! 
I'm on the right track, baby 
I was born this way, hey!

Post V Date

We had a small fight since the 15th and we never really had the chance to go out last Valentine's Day and since I already baked the cake a day before, I've decided to surprise him with an after dinner at our home -- candle lit. haha! 
(Nainspire sa D & V Valentine's surprise video-- wala nga lang kaming video.. haha!)

My surprise -- I know it's not that much but it's the thought that counts.

No cakes for me! haha!
Um- effort sa  scented Candle! 

Who needs Coffee Shop? When you can do it at your own home.

Of course, we've dreamed of having a world class services from vacations or restaurants during special occasions but it doesn't really matter if we're at home nor eating a sumptuous cuisine; as long as we're together, everything will be special.
He actually asked me, why do we have to eat there daw sa terrace, we can eat naman daw sa dining right after dinner; sabi ko naman "we can't have this moment alone if we're inside the house." which is true naman!

Happiness takes only a few moment with few efforts.

I want to share a story that stirred me last 2009. 
9 months ago, a long lost relative visited our home, and he gave me and my sister a deal regarding the board exam. He made sure that we will pass the NLE as long as we will support his newly built chapel in an old province (he's a pastor). I didn't agree of course, but someone made an agreement for me.
 It was a big thorn that broke my compassion, and it really distracted me while I was studying for the exam.
I didn't have anything to do but to PRAY. I told the Lord, that I don't want to pass the board exam in that way, I want a title that's made of my hard work. I'll always tell Him, that He KNOWS what's in my heart, and I know that he will NOT let that kind of dishonesty happen...
That moment, I didn't prayed for myself, I'll always pray for my friends and classmates, since I know that they deserve the title more than me.
As usual, God answered my prayers; I didn't pass the board last June 2009. At first thought, I felt depressed for the reason that I felt so embarrassed. 
But I was more than pleased because I realized that it's an ANSWERED PRAYER. I realized that God is listening to me. He listens, and He answered... And So, I have decided to take the courage to take one more board exam.
But when I was starting on my review for the second time, I lost my focus and forgot about my purpose, I became more excited about leaving home, and live with my friends. For one and a half month, I didn't prioritize my studies, I seldom be present at my review classes, I don't read my books and totally stopped thinking about my exam. I admit, I didn't have all that preparations.
But God is ALWAYS THERE to REMIND ME about my goals.
 I thought it’s too late to study, but He said "No, There's still one more month to study and pray...”
So, one month prior to the exam, I started to read as much as I can, I still rarely go to review classes, but I will make it to a point that I will read even one subject matter from my book.
That time, It hardened my FAITH again, so many trials came my way, heart breaks, calamity, including being homesick is considered a difficulty. I told myself, bahala na si Lord. Basta I did my best at naniniwala ako that I will pass the board exam, I might not know how but I know I will.
After the first day of our exam, I declared to myself that it’s very hard; but I wasn't nervous, I wasn't frightened for the next day because I believe that I have nothing to fear since the Lord is with me.
That night, I thought I was done with TRIALS, but I wasn't. My dad texted me, telling me that he was not feeling well and have a very high BP. I thought it was nothing severe because he really has a high Blood Pressure, so I just told him to take a rest and be asleep. 
December 2, 2009 --  The day that I will finally go home to Cabanatuan City from Baguio City after three long months of review.. I thought it will be a good day but I was WRONG. As I have said, I was put on test again. My dad, suffered from a "mild" stroke. It didn't sink in into my mind that it was something serious, I thought it was just some kind of over fatigue or something.  
December 5, 2009 (Mom's Birthday) -- Dad called to say that he is in the hospital. I was      upset and I didn't know what to do. I don't know how to get to him, where to see him, and how to react. 
Five days after, me and my sisters at last came to see him, and when I did, I still didn't know how to act or what to say. My heart was breaking to see that he was lying in a hospital area without anybody with him but a friend. I felt blameworthy and I hated myself for not being there. But dad showed no anger; in fact, he was teasing and smiling around the whole time. He kept chatting with me while holding my hand, but I didn't know what to say. If I only knew that it will be the LAST DAY that we could talk, I should have told him how much I LOVE and TREASURE him.
I can still remember the glance on his face when I was helping him stand after falling from a chair, he looked like he wanted to tell me that "hey, I can stand, I can do this, don't worry, I’m your dad, I should be the one taking care of you."  My eyes couldn't even think that my heavy and strong dad is now skinny and weak, that he couldn't even help his self stand without help nor do his activities of daily living. 
Two days after that, Dad passed away, more excoriating pain were felt, sadder stories were heard and difficulties experienced.
I was frightened by the fact that no one will tell me how proud he is to have me, No one will CONSTANTLY tell me that he misses me and that he loves me, I also wondered who will text me that I can do EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING I want to do. In short, I was scared to be left by the ONLY MAN in my LIFE.
I truly felt so all alone when he passed on;
Each moment without him is making me weak and lonely.
Every day hurts, every memory is missed.
Sometimes, I would even find myself texting his number whenever I miss him; and will later become conscious that no one will reply at all. 

Yesterday, January 31, 2010 another TRUST testing day…
I woke up to a text message telling me that only 33% of board examiners passed the licensure exams. I started to suppose, na hindi na ata ako papasa. I lost all the hope and broke my faith that I will pass. Hours passed by, and I thought of going to mass, not for the reason that the results will be released but because I realized that I shouldn't doubt my faith, I should continue to trust him with all his plans for me.
While I was currently having a bite at Mc. Donalds, the result of the Nurses Licensure Examinations was finally released at about 10 p.m. A friend sent me a text message saying "Ui tikya, my result n dw.", as I read the message; I was astounded to feel that I wasn't excited because I thought it was just a false alarm or a joke.
 When I got home, my sister is already at the computer, looking for the website that has the listing of passers... It wasn't easy to find the list, the site and the names, so as I look for it, I started to feel the anxiety, the fears and all. My hands were really shaking when I opened Facebook and saw all other passers, telling the world that they're RN's already... I asked everyone who’s online on what site I can possibly see the results... and when I finally opened the site............ tadaaahhhhhh!!!

 I'm a Registered Nurse!!! I have achieved one goal that made me sob and giggle at the same time. hahaha! I was so glad, everybody kept telling me "hindi ka makakatulog!" and they're right... Here I am, typing my thoughts... 
I was overwhelmed by all the compliments and love that my friends and family has been giving me, Congratulations doon, Congratulations dyan, Thank You doon, thank you dyan, and at the middle of my happiness, I felt a bit sad too. 
It's sad to imagine that My dad is not here to have fun with me any longer, It's unhappy to know that the MAN who has been strengthening my faith, is Not here to see the OUTGROWTH of my HARDSHIPS..
I can still recall when dad died, someone told me na "ok lang yan, malay mo maging RN ka, yun ang kapalit." ang sabi ko naman "Ang bigat naman ng Kapalit?”
But as time passed by, I understand that EVERYTHING IS GOD's WILL. I CAN'T HAVE EVERYTHING IN THIS LIFE; Ang lahat ay aayon sa mga plano nya sabi nga nila.
I've realized that Daddy is already at PEACE and he is contented with the Lord.I wouldn't deprive him that kind of life for my selfish ways. It's hard; it hurts but I SHOULD BE HAPPY FOR HIM. Sabi nga nila, kapag may inalis si Lord sa buhay mo, may magandang Ipapalit.
Of course, I wouldn't replace my dad for this title but God knew what's BEST. If this is what He desires, then be it. I trust the Lord with all my heart, and I know he will guide me in every step of the way…

This is the thing that the LORD taught me in the last 10 months; And it’s called FAITH...
With God I know I can do whatever thing, I know that WITHOUT HIM, I wouldn't be where I am right now.
He's the only ONE that can make me feel at ease and happy.
Lord God, Thank you for everything, I know I've never been the good daughter but you always hear my prayers despite of my unworthiness and sinfulness.
Lord God, Thank You all over again for the continuous Blessings, You know how much I’m overwhelmed right now.
I still believe that As long as I am with you, I have NOTHING to be AFRAID of, NOTHING to DOUBT FOR... I Love You Lord and I WILL ALWAYS WILL.

I hope with this simple story, I can make someone comprehend that a significant thing that should be included in your life is a STRONG FAITH in God.
 Just believe, and It will surely happen. 

**Thank you everyone who has been constantly praying and supporting me since Day One.
I would also like to congratulate my PARENTS, for they are the inspiration of this achievement. Daddy I wish you're still here, I wish you're here to see me as a NURSE.
 Here’s my promise to you, the one we've been praying for. I’m now a Registered Nurse!!
If you can only read this, I would love to tell you, that you and mom are my driving force during the time of my review and exam. I will miss your sweet ways, your lambings, and jokes.
As I actually look at your picture now, I know you are my ANGEL, I know you're happy for me, and I will learn to be happy for you too. I will try my best to make use of what God gave me, and will help mommy in every way that I can.
I'm sorry I wasn't able to take care of you when you were still here with us; you know how much I Love You and nobody in this world can ever say to me that we were never there for you, you are our father, and not a soul will be able to take that away from us.
Thank You Dad for still giving me the strength to go on. I hope I can learn to live without crying over you.
I Love you so much Daddy, You will be forever in my heart. 
I will be always praying for you.

"Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance."
"One person with a belief is equal to a force of ninety-nine who have only interests."
"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without HOPE or Confidence."
Matthew 17:20
"I tell you the truth, If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there." and it will move."

Let's pray for our OFW's in China who were sentenced for Death penalty next week. In my opinion, they can be sentenced for Life Imprisonment but not Death Penalty -- that's too much! especially if most of the Drug Trafficking here in the Philippines were Chinese and NONE of them were given a Death penalty. I don't understand why they need to deprive these people of their lives, they're not GOD.

Spread the Love.

People think that they need a flame to celebrate Valentine’s Day when the truth is Valentine is just all about LOVE and you always have your FAMILY and FRIENDS to share it with.
—Some people makes a big deal out of February 14th (mostly those who are single) but come to think of it, We really have to simplify our lives in order to be happy! Yes, it’s been like a regular practice to celebrate the 14th of Feb with your spouse or with your bf/gf but remember that the day was for LOVE and you can give that to everyone! So, don’t be to hard on yourself! Why sit down and envy those sweet couples when you can actually spend time with your friends and family? Saint Valentine didn’t mention that Valentine’s Day is only for persons with other halves. It’s just a reminder for us to share the LOVE just like God reminded us to Love our neighbors —It’s just literally the same. You can be one of those shiny happy (in love) people If you want to. it’s just a matter of choice.
Think right, feel right!

Fashion Muses

I have always admired those women who has a wonderful taste when it comes to fashion and the fact that they're just being fearless about their own skin.
Celebrities, Models, Musicians and Even those people you see on the street displays a great fashion sense and uniqueness; think "The Satorialist", for me it was a genius idea to take pictures of those stylish men and women that you actually don't know and was just an anonymous person that you came to see on the road.
Following that blog is one of the coolest way to appreciate those individuals who doesn't need stylists nor make up artists to be trendy and dashing, all they need is a little character and a plenty of confidence.
We all have fashion inspirations, muses or just people we look up to when it comes to dressing up or even dressing down. And I myself has been a "fan" of those women who can carry themselves very well.
Here are some of the women I really admire not just because of their awesome style and beauty but because of their personalities and achievements in life.

Reese Witherspoon
I started to watch her in Cruel intentions, It was my sisters' favorite movie and Ryan Phillippe was my crush. HAHA! And the I started to LOVE her when she played ELLE WOODS in LEGALLY BLONDE. from then on, I've watched her as she became not only a fashion icon but a successful actress, ambassadress and mother to her kids. 

Olivia Palermo
She is one of those women with a very pretty face and a hunky handsome boyfriend Johannes Huebl. HAHA! 
I admire her style coz' ever since she's been on the spotlight, I've never seen her in a clothing that I've never LOVED plus the necklace collection that she's been working with Roberta Freymann is to die for. She's always been a part of my Best Dressed List. =)

Divine Lee
She's the woman that I consider as SUPER WOMAN. Gosh!! Model, Real Estate Executive, Business woman, Socialite, Heiress, Intelligent and what i love about her the most?? Funny BECKY!!  HAHA! I Love her to death. Very humble, always ready to tweet back to all of her followers. I can't even go to bed without checking her TUMBLR. HAHA!! And oh! she's also the loving girlfriend of Model-Actor Victor Basa, they're like Olivia and Johannes of the Philippines. =))

I'm always In AWE whenever I see these women! I just Love them.
