HAIR POST #1: Le Summer Waves!

Hello, hello! 
So how's your Summer going, sweeties? Time flies too swiftly, yes? It's as if yesterday was just the end of classes, and now April's already almost over. I haven't even gone beachin' yet. 


Anyways, so because of all the Summer vibes filling up my head, I randomly searched for "summer" in youtube, and this is one of the posts I found. Come on, watch it, it's nice. :) 

After watching it, seeing her hair oh-so-gorgeous like that, I was like:



"Ohmygosh, ohmygosh, I want that, too."

And so yes, I did. I tried doing it myself with my trusty flat iron. Sorry, I wasn't able to capture an immediate "before" photo, so I'll just attach this photo I grabbed from my Facebook account.

BEFORE                                              AFTER

I know, right? I didn't quite achieve the pretty pretty curls in the video tutorial, but I'm quite okay with what I got. It's just my first time, anyway. And besides, this was really what I want -- just a sea of lazy waves on my hair. Suits my carefree, bubbly self. BUT -- there's a but! -- I would definitely, definitely, practice more. :D

How about you, sweeties? What new stuff are you trying out this Summer vacay? You know we don't always get loads of free time like this, so grab any opportunity to try out new stuff -- no matter how big or no matter how small. ;)

Oh well, that's all to this post, I guess. I'm still looking for some nice styles to try for my hair, so if you know something cool, just let me know!

Ciao for now!

Lots of love,

Prizes from BeeKyooteBlog's Holiday Giveaway

Heyaaaaa! :D

Two weeks ago, I was just randomly scanning through my blog roll (as I always do) when I saw beekyoote blog's latest update: Finally! The Holiday Giveaway Winners! (See her post here: http://www.beekyoote.blogspot.com/2012/04/finally-holiday-giveaway-winners.html). So I just clicked on it, just mindlessly wanting to see who got to won, and to my surprise, I saw my name and picture right there!

So after contacting me and my co-winner, she shipped the items last April 12, Thursday (I know because I'm following her on instagram and I saw this: http://instagr.am/p/JTzFrYMPSO/)

Girl Bonding with my BFTs + Nail Art! :D

NOTE: Just click on the photos for a larger view.

Hi there, Sweeties!

I'm sorry I'm not so active in blogging lately; I got a lot of stuff to take care of, and a lot of things to catch up on. I've been itching to tell you a lot of stories, but yeah, I didn't have the time. When I come home at night, I wanna go blog about my day immediately, but I just end up falling asleep. 

Anyways, just recently my BFTs and I had some girl bonding time at our friend's [Bea's] house. It was SUPER FUN! We had not talked to each other for like ages (to tell you a bit more accurately, 'twas about a year or so), so we all went non-stop with our stories and all. Sooo highschool BFFs mode. You get the idea, gals. LOL.

All of us were already really hungry when we met up, so we started off with... LUNCH!
Our MOMMY for the day, Bea, preparing lunch for us. And there's Jaycee, all-smiles for the camera. 

Mommy Bea just noticed I was shooting photos, and hurriedly covered her face
(as if the camera didn't catch her in the first photo! LOL).

The three of us posing for the camera with the help of a 10-second self-timer.
We had Barbecue Liempo and Jumbo hotdogs for lunch, with chilled tomatoes as side dish. Afterwards, we ate the fruit salad made by Jaycee's mom, Tita Odith. Lunch was superb! Especially when you have it with your bestest buddies. After lunch, we decided to do some nail painting.

PLDT myDSL & Nuffnang bring you The Avengers!

As a teenager, college student, artist, movie junkie, and blogger ALL at the same time, I have a lot of different activities in my hands everyday which call for some great online help. As a collegiate, I need to be able to check the web everyday as my professors send out assignments, schedules, and announcements online via email or forums. As an arts & crafts fanatic, I have this certain need for accessible internet as I always so randomly thirst for ideas and inspirations from around the world. Being a blogger, I also need to keep my readers updated with my everyday quirks and activities. And of course, the teen-aged me always has to keep up with her friends and family here and abroad via Facebook and other networking sites. Plus, the movie junkie inside me also demands a lot of movie-downloading and stuff.  I surely could not do all of these almost at the same time without the help of a fast and reliable Internet Connection.

Tribute to the Parents and Graduates 2012

For those who don't know yet, I am an Iglesia Ni Cristo member. As members of the church and students at the same time, we are all encouraged to join Christian Brotherhood International (CBI), a student organization which primarily aims to keep the members of the Church of Christ together; help them with their needs -- whether academic or spiritual -- and guide them into keeping the Christian ways even when faced with the college "temptations". There are CBI orgs in almost each school and university worldwide; as long as there are enough INC members studying in there. 

Just like any other student organization, CBI holds activities for their members, too! Just recently our chapter, UP Diliman CBI, held the Tribute to the Parents and Graduates for, obviously, the graduating students and their parents. We were kinda stressed out because of all the constraints that came in the way before the event, but we still succeeded. Hooray for God's great providence! :D

Here are some photos from the said event 
(I can't post all of them due to some church-related privacy concerns):
This was how the stage looked like. I'm proud to say that I was the one who made those letters! :D I drew the letters on Styrofoam and cut them. I mixed some paint and then my fellow officers were the ones who painted them.
That's Farah Xuxa of xuu.tumblr.com

That's Kuya Kenneth holding up our token of congratulations for him. :D
Picture-taking while waiting for our turn in the buffet.
(left to right) Menggay, Ate Jeddah, Ate Cha, Ate Ktine, and ME! :D
Menggay is a 3rd year Statistics student; Ate Jeddah is taking up Civil Engineering; Ate Cha -- my ultimate girl crush in CB -- is an Interior Design student; and Ate Ktine is from Clothing Technology. We all go to UP Diliman. And we're all cam-wh*res. LOL.
(Left to right) Ate Cha, Ate Ktine, Ate Jeddah, Ate Phoebe, Ate Cha again hihi :D
More photos! :D
Eating Time! :D
I super love the appetizers. The macaroni salad, shrimp crackers, and all. I think I ate more from the appetizers than from the entree. Haha! And I love the butterscotch dessert, too. :D
After eating, the graduates were each given a few minutes for their "speech".
Ate Josie, getting emotional while speaking about her parents.
Kuya Kenneth with his mom and dad. They were wearing his gift for them. They were shirts saying, "Sa wakas, graduate na ang anak ko!" Hehe. Cool, right? :D
After the event, of course we had...
My beloved committee, my beloved OSSIM! :D
(3rd photo, left to right) ME, Ate Josie, Menggay, and Kuya Miko
I didn't let the event pass without having a photo with Ate Josie. I came to love her so much even though we've only been together for barely a year. She taught me a lot, made me realize a lot, and she has come to be one of my greatest inspirations -- whether it be in academics or in my duties in The Church.

Proud to have finished this even though we were in such a rush :')
Photo with Ze Girrrls! :D

LOL at my earrings there. XD
Can you find me in here? :D

It was indeed another fun activity with UPD CBI. I really love them. They're my family now. They help me beat the college blues and make it through any hardship that come my way. *sigh* I wonder how many buckets of tears I'd cry when it's time for my batch's Tribute? :')

How about you, guys? Do you have your own college family, too?
I'd love it if you'd share some stories with me! :D

Btw, I'd share about what I wore to this event in a separate post. :)

Lotsa love,
