It’s been a long time since I last posted something about skincare. I’m still not an expert but I’m very much still an avid enthusiast. Over the past year, I have given much more thought on what goes on my face and by now, I think I’ve pretty much got it. These products that I’ve been using for the past five months are now my skincare staples. I’ve never bought products more than once but I find myself restocking these twice a month! They’re doing their job on my skin and I’m very thankful for that.
Last year, I blogged about being torn regarding which camera to buy. Not only am I taking blogging much more seriously now, but I’m also in that phase where I want to preserve each memory beautifully and print out my best travel pictures. With that said, I need a camera that does the job perfectly for me without breaking the bank. As a student still depending on her parents for pretty much everything, I always have to be conscious about the quality of every huge purchase that I’m going to make. I finally narrowed my four choices down to one.
I’m going to start this off by saying that I am not, in any way, an expert. I’m not a well-known blogger, and I don’t make huge bucks from blogging. But I think I’ve been blogging long enough, and have collaborated with enough brands to somehow know what I’m talking about. It took me years before I first got contacted for a collaboration.
This post marks the start of my Japan travel series because *drum roll please* I’m going to Japan this April! It’s such a dream come true for me because I’ve always wanted to visit. It’s so timely because when my mom went there last year, she said that she was going to visit again the following year because she was too early for the Sakura season when she went. I told her that I want to go with her, and surprisingly, she agreed. She’s not one to always say yes to my plans without me having to earn it so her approval came as quite a shock to me. Lol. So the first step for me to be able to see a cherry blossom tree is to get a Japan visa.
I’ve been struggling to find the words to explain how I feel. It’s been a month and I still don’t know how to properly express what I felt when you told me that we have to go our separate ways. I’ve always found it easy to put into writing what I feel but I’m at loss with how I should write about us. Maybe because writing about it means it’s actually real, that it’s really over. Or maybe that no matter how painful it was, I know it deserves nothing but the best of my words.
I’m a pretty picky person to dress up. I’m very specific when it comes to clothes because I like to pay attention to every single detail. Because I’m a huge believer in comfort being a top priority in every piece I wear, it takes me a lot of time before settling into what I’m going to wear. It becomes easier when I’m just dressing up for a leisurely stroll in the mall, or a night out with friends. But it’s a whole new different story when I’m supposed to be all dolled up.
One of my indulgences is scouring Pinterest for formal dresses. I’ve always liked thinking of occasions where I can wear a long gown, and dress up like the woman that I am deep inside. Of course I’d rather be in jeans and sneakers but there’s something about gowns that just awakens the 7-year old in me. I look forward to events that requires me to wear formal clothes no matter how much of a hassle it might be. One such event was for my graduation ball in college. I spent days looking for the perfect dress online and I’ve never been happier to be living in an era where it’s easy to look for just about anything, and I’m happy to say that I found the perfect grad ball gown.
