Giordano leather jacket, Celine sandals, Charles & Keith bag, Corset top from Landmark, Skater Skirt from a bazaar.
Finally, the much-loved and anticipated month is here (December, Decembrrr or Decemblur. Whichever you like)! The weather is reminiscent of these photos from a Tagaytay trip last November. My siblings, nephew, sister’s boyfriend and I went out for a dose of joy ride.
This set was shot at Mushroom Burger (with a funny yet witty Mcdonalds-ish counter display). Outside, there was this motorcycle parking slot at a far corner adorned with pretty hanging white flowers. I just had to get my pictures taken there. #vainproblems
Moving on to what I wore, my leather jacket is the perfect armor for the chilly wind. I have always wanted to get one so this pick from Giordano is a great choice. Also, corset + skater skirt (yes, I am jumping into that skirt bandwagon) seems to be a no-brainer combo for me nowadays. It is a lazy dressing cheat that will still make you look put-together.
As you may have noticed, I have been tinkering some parts of my blog little by little. Finally, I had the energy to update this space again. I just got an Iphone 5s recently so I guess I have no excuse to not update on a regular basis. Hahaha.
Crossing my fingers that my last quarter of 2013 onwards would be nothing short of awesomeness, cyberspace and real-life wise. Tata!
It was just one laidback Sunday. We tried using the camera of my sister’s Samsung Mega to take these shots. Impromptu much? Definitely.
I just pulled off whatever it is that I can use as an outfit post.I came up with the usual tutu thingy. (Urgh, note to self: Girl, you are not a ballerina and in your mid 20’s. Give those kind of frilly things a break!). Yep, that’s me talking to myself on being a more mature dresser.Hahaha.
What I like the most here is that I finally have a corset top! Woot woot. Although I am not well “gifted” up there, I think that this thing suits me to a tee. Look at those pretty prints! *u* Props to Landmark for fab and affordable finds.
I would have opted for brown shoes but decided to just go for black booties instead. It somehow mellows down the “girliness” of the look. My bag is quite an old one from Charles & Keith. As for the accessories, I am currently obsessed with this sparkly bracelet. It seems to be peppered with gemstones that turn iridescently blue or green. Nice find!
Please bear with the randomness of this post. It’s only now that I got to have time in Tumblri-ng. Will just cap off this OOTD with an annoyingly pa-cute photo. Toodles! :b

My Blog is Not Dead
Weeeeh! I’m really happy that my on-the-verge-of-dying enthusiasm for posting here is already revived. I was terribly busy and distracted for a long time. Due to this, my online presence has been unfelt. I don’t post in LB anymore, moveover, even browse the site. Wow. I have not taken new interesting pictures in a while as well. Tsk tsk. Here’s..
WHY I’M STILL HERE
1. Photoshop 7-I finally have this installed again in my PC. Yay! This is one of the reasons why I feel handicapped before in blogging anything “creative”. Stupid me erased the old CS3 version before. SMH.
2. Nice Theme- I have been searching forever for the perfect one. Finally, it already appeared. Phew. I changed it for the second time. I thought I was happy with the first one that I posted on Instagram. :b
3. Time- Less pressure=more room for happy stuff.
4. Blogspiration- My shortlist are on the ‘Favorites’ part of sidebar. Haaay. Awesome people, Y U so perfect?

A List Inspiration: Boom Sason SS 13’ New Collection
Boom Sason’s clothes are too amazing. Wow, my jaw just dropped in awe the moment I saw this collection (and it rarely happens). My favorite looks/photos are the second, fifth and last one. Plus, Martine C. is forever stunning, as always.
Help, I am horrible at people
It’s yet another weekend that I’ve spent in the company of my books, my bunny, my bed, and mostly my mother. I just don’t go out, and it’s not for lack of things to go out to (because this is Manila; there’s so much going on). It’s that I don’t appear to have actual friends to go to anything with.
I mean, I have friends, I guess. Friends who are maybe a step up from acquaintances, who I can talk to on a level a little higher than superficial for a respectable amount of time, but I don’t have friends friends. I have a couple of people I consider best friends, who are all so busy that I only see them a few times a year. (But every time I do, it’s like not much has changed. I can count on those people to be there when I absolutely need them to be.) But I don’t hang out with them. I don’t have friends I can hang out with. I don’t hang out.
I scroll through my online feeds on a regular basis and see lots of people basically just hanging out with each other, and it looks fun, and I don’t have that. It makes me sad that I don’t have someone I can text at random to grab a drink or a bite to eat or some coffee or to catch a movie or to go with to some random thing. I don’t have anyone to be casual with.
Is it because I’m bad at people? I don’t like to be the initiator; I’m too shy. I don’t like to force my company on others because I feel like people feel like they have to put up with me. I rarely really feel welcome anywhere; I need to be a little drunk to be comfortable in the company of others. I think I’ve grown so used to being in front of a screen and having a QWERTY keyboard of some form at my fingertips that I’ve essentially lost the art of conversation. I feel dull.
For a while, I thought maybe I didn’t want to go out because I felt ugly and didn’t want to be self-conscious, but then I checked myself. That’s only true sometimes, and rarely.
Mom says I’m like Dad; I’m just the lone wolf type. I mean, I see my boyfriend a few hours a week and barely text him, and I’m surprisingly okay with that. (I know I have a taste for expensive things and I can be terrible when I’m moody, but I can honestly say that I’ve never been a clingy, needy, possessive girlfriend. He doesn’t have it so bad with me. Or at least I hope so.) And this is the person I’m closest to.
I just worry sometimes that I’m too young to be so closed off to everything going on around me, that maybe I should make a little more effort to get out there, try harder. But I just don’t know how.
I mostly enjoy being alone. It’s on the very rare occasions that I feel lonely that I wonder if there’s something wrong with that, with me.
