Quote + Longchamp Le Pliage

Hello again! I want to share the quote that I found recently. Live simply. Walk humbly. Love generously. Sounds like a good thing to live by! I am writing this blog at 3AM and my back is aching… signs of aging, I tell ya. Anyhow…

I also want to share a review of the Longchamp Le Pliage Large Shoulder Tote, which I got recently. I have seriously been wanting one for myself. My mom got hers some years ago and since then I wanted to have one as well. Hers is actually the Neo, I believe in Medium size/Black. I would prefer the Medium, but when I went to Bloomingdales and looked at all the sizes on me, I thought a large one would be more practical for me. I already have a lot of totes and big bags, which is why the thought of owning yet another big bag makes me feel that I needed a Medium. After deliberation, I got the the Le Pliage in Large in color New Navy. I would have got it in Bilberry color, which was out of stock at the time. Could have I waited for an order for that color? Yes, probably. But I really wanted to start using it for the Palm Springs trip! It is great for travel. Now that I think about it, I prefer this color anyway. It’s versatile, classic and goes well with everything really. I have to say, I’m not a fan of soft material purses, so this might be an exception for me. I prefer handbags that are sturdy.

My iPhone broke tonight. I don’t know what happened, but I’m not looking into having it fixed. I don’t want to waste money by doing so. It’s expensive to get a new iPhone. I have a love and hate with iPhone. Lol. It’s like I’m so done with it, but really I like it’s features and functionality. Maybe it’s time to let go of this iPhone SE, which I just got only sometime last year. Not cool. I’m thinking of the iPhone 7.

What kind of phone do you have? Let me know! Have a great rest of the week! God bless. xoxo

Recently…

What have I been up to recently on my spare time? I have opened a shop through Instagram & linked to my Facebook, which is basically my closet for sale! If you want to check it out, click here. I sell clothing and pre-loved handbags and accessories. I just need to get rid some of my things and I have been wanting to do this for so long. Finally it is here! It’s private currently and only available to family and friends.

I picked up a few items lately from Nordstrom, Macy*s and Target:

Happy Memorial Day! By the way, if you did not know… I’m cutting my sugar. It’s such a bummer. For instance today, I went to 85C Bakery Cafe and I could not have any drinks. I miss having milk teas and bobas! Anyway, hope you have a great week! God bless us all.

Slip-On Mules/Loafers + IKEA Runs!

Can I just say, I’m obsessed with these shoes! I need another pair in Black. Anything slip-on mules/loafers, I’m into right now. It’s classic and comfortable. Love them!

Life Update + Design / Art!

Hello! I just want to update my blog, which is why I’m writing. I have been working the past two weeks for Ted Baker US Wholesale division as they asked me to help them. I’m really thankful for the experience. I LOVE TED! Everything is sooooo pretty!

Speaking of things that I love, here’s my cutie little nephew toddler:

Other than that, I’m back on having time to study (Yes, I’m still on it. Ugh). It’s okay, learning is fun and you grow knowledge. I also have time to paint again! YAY. I’m excited about that. I also on plan on attending my first calligraphy workshop in May. That’s definitely one of the things on my bucket list! That’s all for now. I’ve been shopping, but trying to save at the same time.

Alright, hope you have a great day. God bless! xoxo

10 Things I Would Tell My 16 Year-Old Self

Hi there! I am back to blogging today. I’m actually feeling really sleepy. So I figured why not blog to keep myself awake. Here’s a list of 10 things I would tell my 16 year-old self, if I could. So here it is:

1. Seize the day! Take every opportunity, not just with things that occupy your mind at the moment, but pertaining to your future as well.

2. Be yourself. It’s good to admire and to look up to other people, especially if they are older than you. But remember, you can make a choice to stand out and decide to be your own self.

3. Put God first! As a 16 year old, you have your future ahead of you. Make sure you put Him first and your plans will succeed.

4. Seek first the Kingdom of God. I believe this is important because it affects your life choices and the people you surround yourself with.

5. Follow and obey God. This is like a no-brainer. But when you realize that you’re a Christian, it’s your priority and you will make sure you do so in all areas and aspects of your life.

6. Listen to your parents. They know what is right and what is best for you. I’m blessed with godly parents, and they are an example to me.

7. Time is precious. Time flies! Whatever your goals are, the time is NOW! Don’t wait until you’re ready.

8. Not everyone will like you. Even if you think you’re a likable person, you don’t have to get other people’s approval.

9. Don’t give in to peer pressures. Whatever is going on around you, the latest trend or fashion. Be modest and be an example!

10. Learn to LET GO! It doesn’t apply to me when I was 16 years old, but it would be helpful if I learned how to do so later in life.

Thanks so much for reading this blog post! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Lush Review + More Fitness Stuff!

Spring is around the corner and it’s flip-flops, sandals and wedges season! That’s why I went to LUSH, because I needed something to smooth my heels. I recently tried Pumice Power from LUSH, and I love it! IT WORKS! This isn’t my first time trying LUSH products, but from my experience before, it was so and so. That’s why I’m thrilled to say that finally, I found a LUSH product worth reviewing.

I also had to get a new fitness mat. I got a Marika Fitness Mat and I’m excited to try it and use it daily!!! (Yes, I said daily.) No more excuses. I’m running out of excuses to NOT work out! And I thought I would get a pink one, but ended up getting this instead.

Lastly, I needed a new track jacket, preferably in black. I got the Puma Archive Logo T7 Track Jacket in Black.

It’s been raining here lately. Anyway, if you have any questions or comments, leave them down below! I hope you have a great weekend!

Wednesday vibes + Fitness

Happy Wednesday! I’m having Starbucks for breakfast and thought I would share what I normally eat that I consider as my healthy food go-to’s! For lunch, I usually get Starbuck’s Protein Bistro Box and a grande decaf iced coffee unsweetened (Coffee is always a good idea! It keeps me up during the day). For dinner, I may go to Whole Foods Market for their salad bar selections or hot food. As you probably know, Filipino food tends to be greasy. Though, I still eat Filipino food half of the time.

Last night, I stopped by the mall to pick up fitness gear and I was looking for mesh leggings! I had accidentally bought one from Macy*s a while back when I thought it looked weird at the time. I regret returning it and so I was on the look out for one. I got one finally from Aeropostale! Thankfully, it was on sale too.

Do you have any fitness tips you would like to share with me? What keeps you motivated? How do you stay in track of your fitness goals? Let me know. Have a great and wonderful day, loves! God bless.

Ted Baker Haul!

I have put off this haul for such a long time. I am barely getting around to posting it on my blog. I almost forgot about it. Last December, I helped at Ted Baker Sample Sale at the Cooper Design Space in Downtown LA. What a fun experience it was! I ended up getting a few things, and I want to share it:

As you can see, I got two (2) shopper bags, a mens sweater, an umbrella, a cosmetic pouch and then I was given some giveaways, two (2) notebooks with pens and two (2) cotton shopping bags.

Most were gifts and not for me, except the big brown shopper and the umbrella that I was suppose to give, but ended up being mine. Anyhow, this is it for my haul! ‘Til next time.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Share and celebrate God’s love!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16

Before the New Year…

I just wanted to post about some of the pretty things I want. Lol. There’s nothing wrong with having what you want, nothing at all. Maybe next year! Or I should say hopefully next year. Will be my birthday present to myself or Christmas present. They’re all by Gucci. I don’t even want to look at their other accessories. Haha. That would make me want them even more. I’m leaning more towards the black color or pink. They’re in no particular order.

I babysat my little nephew today. He’s been a blessing to me and my family. He brings so much joy in our lives. He’s just so cute… and he’s turning 3 years old soon! Alright, have a Happy New Year and a blessed 2017! Lots of love!
