We were best of friends. Past tense. But before you wrap your mind about this being one of those sad stories, let me tell you otherwise.
I'm a huge fan of thrift shopping and upcycled transformations so whenever I could, I try to DIY my way with clothes. Some of them turn out great while others don't get that lucky. About a year ago, I found these bright pink pair of pants that were too baggy for anyone to bother with. I've been wanting to buy some dungarees at the time but didn't have enough cash. The fix? I sewed up the old pants and turned them into dungarees. And the best part is, the straps are detachable so you can wear it as a pair of shorts too!
The most random and unplanned adventures can sometimes be the greatest and that's regardless of how grand or simple the trip was. A few months back, my uncle and cousin decided to treat the whole family (read "barangay") to a buffet lunch. Coincidentally the tickets they got came with a free entrance to Manila Ocean Park's Sharks and Rays Encounter so we thought, why not bring out our inner child and go visit?
The people closest to my heart know very well that I'm a voracious reader who has a penchant for crying over books. I also have an inclination for stories and doodling. If my blog's name isn't proof enough then I don't know what is. So here's my question for you. What was the last book that made you cry (or at least teary-eyed)? I'm sure some would scream 'The Fault in Our Stars' or 'Me Before You'. Those are absolute tearjerkers but the latest for me would have to be a non-fiction entitled "Imagine This! Doodles to Draw Out Your Life Purpose" by Migs Ramirez.
Have you ever tried cleaning up your room and finding treasures in the process? Think about diaries, old photographs, childhood toys and the like. I've been doing some cleaning too but this time with my computer. While backing up my files, I realized that there have been a couple of photographs that I haven't shared and I thought what a waste it would be if I left them hidden in my hard drive. Now, enough with my whatsits. Have you heard about the Cebu Taoist Temple?
Blogapalooza Horizons: Charting the Uncharted, marks my second year with the event. Dubbed as one of the biggest, if not the biggest Business to Blogger event in the country, it certainly does not disappoint. As commerce graduates, my sister and I have a thing for how businesses introduce themselves and sow their identity in the market. Blogapalooza was certainly an avenue to satiate that. Also, it was the perfect way to bond, get to know new friends, discover amazing brands and have crazy fun. But was Blogapalooza really a yay or a nay? Well, why don't you find out?
"Never judge a book by its cover." Or so we're told. But let's face it, we sometimes could not help but be drawn to their beauty. In a store full of paperbacks and hardcovers, these standouts pack a graphic punch and as visual beings we all can’t help but notice, flip open and read. The next thing we know, we’re handing them out to the cashier, shopping bags lying in wait.
