But if you’re lucky enough to fly out of the country and experience winter wonderland, I hope this fashion guide will be able to prepare you but still remain chic and stylish. Trust me, it’s better to be prepared than freeze yourself to death. Read More

What I Wore: 26 and Dainty

Kisty Mea

I turned 26 over the weekend!

Not gonna lie but I wasn’t really in a joyous mood that day. I’ve been super hormonal since Wednesday, and every little thing would upset me. But Saturday was my day and I refused to let the sadness get me. So what did I do? I went to the salon and had my hair done.
Beautiful hair = instant confidence booster

By the way, I never wore those boots that day. I was just playing around with my outfit, wanting to see if it’ll “work” with my dress. Hehe.
What I wore that day was my trusty Converse sneakers.

UST BlogCon 2014: Rising Above The Ordinary

UST BlogCon 2014

I’ll be honest with you guys. The last time I had to do a presentation was back in college, like five years ago! So when I received an email invite from TomasinoWeb, the official online student publication and organization of the University of Santo Tomas, to do a talk about blogging, I was extremeeeeeely nervous! I’ve never done a talk about anything that isn’t graded before, and even if I’ve been blogging for 12 years now, I don’t feel like I was qualified to do it. Not to mention, my public speaking skills have been rusty! But because I’m a YES girl when it comes to opportunities, and it was an experience worth trying, I accepted the invitation. I figured if I’m going to suck at it, at least I would know as early as now and there would be no ~what ifs~ in the future. Lol, relationship lang? Read More

Life In A Nutshell (2014)

Life In A Nutshell 2014

To sum it all up, this year was all about spontaneous adventures, new experiences and a bucket full of obstacles. It was a balance of the good and the bad, but I’m not gonna lie, there were instances that I felt like the bad outweighs the good. But through the help of my friends and JP, I was able to come through and survive all those hardships and challenges. :) Just in time, too, because who wants to be sad on their birthday month? Definitely not me!

  1. The motivation to do something creative every day — whether it’s watercolor painting, calligraphy, lettering, and so on. You can see my WIP and final output on Twitter and Instagram respectively.
  2. Opportunities, no matter how big or small they are. Opportunities are opportunities!
  3. The immense love of your family, friends and boyfriend and his family. Definitely priceless! <3
  4. To be invited to be a speaker in a blog conference. (!!!) It’s my first time to do a talk about blogging, and it’s an experience I’ll never forget. Thanks UST BlogCon for this opportunity. :)
  5. Having your boyfriend, take a nap on your lap, and telling you how much he missed you.
  6. Huge thanks to O.B. Montessori for all those calligraphy classes in the morning. Haha! Never thought they’ll come in handy one day.
  7. My blog readers who have always been supportive and encouraging. :)
  8. A brand new pair of Dr. Martens (rouge) that don’t hurt your feet! Thanks, dad!
  9. The acquisition of pretty things, such as post cards from the BGC Art Fair, Fujifilm X-M1 and Frankie Magazine 2015.
  10. Letting go of toxic people.

I’ve got a million more things to be thankful for, but these are the things I can think of right now. I’m incredibly grateful that things are finally falling into place, and that despite certain situations, I can finally say that I am genuinely happy. :)

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Monday. Have a great week ahead!
