I had a pretty busy long weekend but laziness reared its ugly head in and I didn’t take any (interesting) photos. As usual, Sunday was spent recovering from Saturday drunkies so I was really glad Monday was a holiday because I had a list of things I needed to do.
Today is a happy day! I’ve been feeling miserable lately, mostly due to the rain (it makes me ronery!) and the fact that I haven’t worked out in over a week (lacking endorphins, yo). Fortunately, the shoes I ordered from Lovely Shoes last week and the La Riche Directions semi-permanent hair dye I bought off ebay ~2 weeks ago both arrived today! I have yet to open the box from Lovely Shoes so I’m not sure if they are worth the $52 I spent, heh (I’m cheap, OKAY).
Meanwhile, I googled La Riche Directions reviews and I’m a bit disappointed to learn that these fade quickly! Two or three washes and they’re gone! This is alarming because I wash my hair everyday so I guess I’ll have to forgo shampoo for a bit. I’ve been meaning to give No Poo a try, anyway (unnecessary, since I use organic shampoo from HHN but I wanna give it a shot. Still waiting for my shampoo for thinning hair for women). Still— talk about buyer’s remorse; I really should learn to google BEFORE purchasing. I should have gone with Manic Panic (roughly around the same price range) or Special Effects.
Oh well, charge it to experience.
Thrifted crop top I’ve had for FOREVER but never got around to wearing ’til today (the buttons are heart-shaped <3), black lace skirt from ebay, boots from ebay. I have a love-hate thing for this cropped top: I like that it looks like something my grandmother would wear but I hate that the collar won’t sit still. I got it for fifty pesos so I’m not really complaining.
Meanwhile, I am starting to dislike these boots.
It was sunny when we arrived in Cebu Thursday afternoon but it had started to drizzle when our cab pulled into Kukuk’s Nest’s driveway in Lahug City (I did not take note of how long the ride was but it’s pretty far from Mactan-Cebu International Airport). After checking in and settling in, my friends headed to the hostel bar while I stayed behind to fix up a bit, connect to the internet, and order online flowers. The rain had gotten considerably stronger and this is what greeted me when I went to the main entrance.
Hello! I got back from Cebu last night and the entire trip has me wishing I were a rich kid (the kind who works for fun and not out of necessity) with a trust fund and all the time and money in the world to travel.
I’ll probably blog about the trip (though not in detail because really, what we mostly did was drink and relax) in the coming days as I have a nice amount of things to do at work. Part of me is glad to be back in Manila where I can have hot showers (we didn’t splurge on fancy hotels), stable internet (I really dislike SmartBro), and Insanity (I ate soooo much and I’m back to googling how to reduce belly fat lol) but a bigger part of me is still wishing I were back in Cebu, hanging out at Kukuk’s Nest with a beer and a bacon and egg burger, not thinking about anything but how nice it is to be there.
This yellow dress was all rolled up and packed in my traveling bag, ready to be worn at the beach later this week when I woke up to the sound of rain. Rats. I was planning on wearing either a maxi dress or white tights but the last thing I wanted was getting the hem of my skirt wet and dirty or mud spattered on WHITE tights so I opted for something short and well, bright and happy.
Repetitive photos but it’s okay because I’m cute ~under the cut.
