I am too busy with the corporate life! Haha. Yes, I have a full-time job now (and a part-time job too. Wow, hardworking? LOL). I started last week. Yay me! I’m usually tired every time I go home and haven’t had enough sleep since my work starts at 8:00 AM. I feel really sick right now too but even if hell freezes over, I will not miss the party tomorrow! Ha!

Romwe leggings and cap
Hello, hello! See that cute pair of floral leggings? I got it from Romwe a few weeks ago. They have this most unique collection of leggings that you would rarely see anywhere else. To be safe and since it’s still summer, I went for a floral print first. But I’ll surely go for the more unique prints next time. This outfit makes me feel feminine and
badass brave at the same time, don’t you think? ;)

We spend so much on skincare products which sometimes don’t even workout the way they’re supposed to. Since it’s summer, we all have our share of tans and sunburns. Lemon juice is known to not only make one refreshing drink for the season, but to lighten and exfoliate the skin as well. There are many ways to use lemon juice for skincare and facial care, so let me just share to you the stuff that I have tried.
Lemon and Honey Facial Mask
What you need to do is cut a lemon in half, squeeze it into a bowl and add two tablespoons of honey. Mix it well. Apply the mixture generously onto your face using your hands or a cotton ball. This can be a messy one, so make sure to tie your hair back. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse it off.
Unlike other non-edible facial masks, you don’t need to worry if it gets in your mouth because you could just lick it off. Haha.
Lemon and Sugar Facial Scrub
Simply mix equal parts of lemon juice and sugar. Teaspoons of each should be enough. Scrub it onto your face, avoiding the eye area. Wash it off with water, and viola! You’re face will feel smoother and softer. Slap me if I’m wrong. But I doubt I would be. ;)
The frequency of using lemon juice for facial care varies on different skin types. Because lemon juice is photosynthetic in nature (I’ve read this somewhere), it makes your skin sensitive to the sun so make sure you wear sunscreen when you go out. Exposing your skin to the sun when you’re in lemon juice treatment without sunscreen will only darken your skin.
For simplicity’s sake, you can always just rub lemon on your skin especially on your knees and elbows to lighten those parts. It can be itchy, but it would be worth it. I regret not doing this when I was younger. My mom always forced me to do it but I didn’t like the itchiness.*sigh*
When life gives you lemons, cut it in half. Use the first half for your face/body, and the other half for a yummy lemonade! Haha.
Hippie waves to match the hippie dress. Too bad I didn’t wear my hippie floral headpiece. Okay, I’m not really a hippie I just really like flowers. Haha. I’ve been really lazy to accessorize lately. With the heat and all, I just really don’t want to be bothered by my accessories sticking to my skin. Ugh. My watch has been my only accessory these days. It’s also very important to wear something breezy when you go out this summer. The heat is almost unbearable! Genie, I wish for a portable AC! :))
And for the foodie that I am, I shall never fail to give you some dose of food porn.
Mooon Cafe’s SECRET. It’s one of my favorite drinks in the world! I don’t even know what’s in it because it’s a secret and I really can’t figure it out no matter how hard I try but it’s really good. :)
Who doesn’t love Halo-halo? If you’re in the Philippines and you haven’t had it then you’re crazy. Seriously.
Hooray for Labor Day! It’s another ordinary day for me and for all the other jobless peeps out there. LOL. Actually, I do have a job but it’s home-based and part-time. I’m still looking for a full-time job. Please hire me. I feel useless. Hahahaha. Aaaand, I’d like to thank my boyfriend for taking me out on a date today. Good luck on your first day of work.

Heyyy! I’m back. I know April’s not over yet but I’m pretty sure nothing interesting is gonna happen in the next couple of days so let me just post this now. Haha. April was sort of a busy month for me which explains how stale this blog has become this month. I feel sad for not updating but I just didn’t have the time and energy to do so this past week. Thank heavens for weekends though, I was able to go watch Iron Man 3 with my bros from another mother and my boyf yesterday. It was *wait for it* AMAAAAZING! And if there is one thing that I have learned from watching Marvel moves over the years, it is to NOT leave the cinema right after the movie ends. There’s always a surprise after the credits. #duh
So, how was April for you guys? :)
It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been really busy and I haven’t even had time to use my lappy. What have I missed? Any interesting viral videos that I need to watch? Mehehe. I’ve only a had a couple of hours of sleep for the past two days. Luckily, today’s sort of my free day and I can sleep the day away! But before I do that, I wanted to give my blog a little bit of love (this post?). I don’t have anything to write about really. Maybe I’ll post something with sense this weekend. That’s it for now. Ciao!
At some point in your life, did you ever wonder how it would be like to have the one fairytale-like moment that would sweep you off your feet?
All these romance books I’ve been reading are bringing out the big softie in me that I thought I would not be able to see again.
I used to be this young, naïve little girl who believed that someday, I would have the perfect life, the perfect relationship, the perfect love. I believed it would be like in the movies wherein my knight in shining armor would save me like the damsel in distress.
I wanted a fairytale. I wanted a bouquet of beautiful white roses. I wanted long walks on the beach. I wanted to be kissed under the rain. I wanted picnics at the park. I wanted to watch the sunset with my prince. I wanted to wear the most amazing dress while slow dancing to the sweetest song with the most amazing guy.
I was a child. I was naïve.
There is a reason why all those things happen only in the movies and in the books. It’s because those can’t all happen in real life.
As we move around in circles trying to mold our lives into a perfect story, we lose appreciation of what is in front of us.
I was a romantic. I wrote songs, I wrote poems, all expressing my love for someone who I haven’t even met yet. At that time, I didn’t know what urged me to write those things but now, I think it was the hope. The hope to be able to feel that one magical feeling when I finally meet that guy who would make my knees weak, make my heart fluster, make me smile when he’s not even there, make me feel all the things I have never felt before, and make me fall but catches me; my hero, my saving grace.
But in this earth, there is no perfect love. It won’t be all the time that somebody would be willing to catch you when you fall. And then I realized that all the things I’ve hoped for will only remain in the movies that I watch and in the books that I read. But I’ve also realized that what I have is enough. It may not be perfect but it is real.
I may not be able to escape the inevitable troubles in paradise. I won’t be able to experience all of the things that I have hoped for, but somehow, I am contented.
For in this earth, there may not be a perfect love, but there is real love…
and I am grateful.
