hey yall


    it’s been.. literally a year since i’ve last updated. a lot has changed. i’ve moved out and moved in with my boyfriend. i left my job. started a new one. left that job. went back to my old one. i’m trying to take youtube and makeup more seriously, but my 40 hour work week and hour commute has been making it difficult. there’s been a lot ups and downs. a lot of trials and tribulations for uriel and i in our relationship. it’s been a little rough lately. i’m definitely not where i thought i would be or where i want to be in life. i guess i haven’t really been my happiest recently and i’ve fallen behind on a lot of my goals. i haven’t really felt like …me recently and thats why i’ve kind of taken a step back. progress-wise, it hurts, but i just haven’t felt good about myself.


    i’m still trying to persist. i do believe i can be where i want to be. and i’ll get there soon.


    Starting today, Nordstrom is having their Half Yearly sale and it continues on until June 5th! Sales like these are a great opportunity to stock up on some new clothes and accessories for the warmer weather. Here are some of my favourite picks from the sale!


    February was more of a tame month for me and while some people would hate that, I welcomed that. I welcomed it SO MUCH. Between the months of August-December, it just so happens that it’s everybody’ birthdays (ours included) and anniversaries and weddings and then there’s holidays and it’s just a hectic time for 5 months in a row. This time around, we added another month of hectic into the mix with a lot of traveling in January. So this month, I absolutely savored every free moment I had.

    The family I work for jetted off to the Philippines for three weeks so that left me with a lot of free time. Since Uriel graduated from college back in December, we decided that this would be a perfect time to take a trip. So we chose to head over to Colorado. Uriel actually has a lot of family there so it was really awesome to finally get to meet them and for Uriel to see them again after a couple of years. Not only that, but I’m absolutely mountain- obsessed (when you’re born and raised in the Midwest, it happens) and I couldn’t wait to be surrounded by them.

    After an incredibly long and uneventful 17 hours, Uriel and I finally made it to Colorado around 1PM yesterday. Today’s adventure includes my first time snowboarding ever 😁 wish me luck! 


    A couple weekends ago, my sister and I found ourselves down in the city for yet another craft fair. I’d say I’m becoming quite the avid craft fair attendee! I mean.. I’ve only been to 2 so far, really, but I’m more than willing to go to many, many more!

    This particular weekend, we decided to make the trek a lot earlier than usual to have breakfast at a diner in West Town called Uncle Mike’s Place. But this wasn’t any plain ol’ breakfast. This was Filipino breakfast. What’s that, you ask?
