Try Affirmations for the New Year!

A 'Thankful' state of mind. That's what I've been trying to achieve all year round. Sometimes it's hard, as problems abound. When I feel sad and blue, I try to veer away from the loneliness I feel and just sleep on it. Or I try to think of all the blessings God has been showering me with; channeling a 'grateful' state of mind..

As the year ends, I look back and ponder on all that has happened in my life. Some are good, most have been bad (money matters). I can't seem to handle my money very well. There seems to be a problem somewhere, what is it that I'm doing wrong, I wonder?

From now on, I'm making these resolutions regarding saving money. I'm going to take charge! Help me God.. I really want to be financially stable. So this coming new year, I will really try hard to resist temptations and try not to buy unnecessary things.

But resolutions I think are meant to be broken, just like promises..:) So why not try 'AFFIRMATIONS'?

"I am a money magnet"
"Money comes to me easily and effortlessly"
Thank you for all the blessings"
What I need comes to me"
"Everyday in everyway I am getting more and more prosperous!"
"Everyday in everyway I am becoming wealthier and wealthier!"
"I am getting better and better everyday in everyway!"

Also, I'd like to share to you my dear readers these wonderful new things to try (it might change your life).

I believe we can set aside the time to do these!

  • Practice deep breathing and meditate every morning.
  • Make a vision board (cut out pictures of what you want and paste them to a board). Be specific. Place it somewhere, wherein you can see it first thing in the morning.
  •  Buy a journal where you can write all your dreams, even more importantly, you can write down and track all your spending habits, so you can plan and budget your money!

Stress no more

Sometimes i wish life would be easy. That i will be carefree, unproblematic and just live and breathe and just be me..But in this day and age of digital overload, there's stress all around us, pouncing on us every single day. So how do we fight stress? I have some suggestions for you guys.

  • Listen to music
  • Watch a movie
  • Go out with friends
  • Play with your pets or with your little loved ones--nieces and nephews

    AJ and JD
  • Go to the beach or Manila Bay and watch the sunrise or sunset

  • Catch up on sleep and limit facebook :))

Long hair at last + Vitress

I have natural wavy hair, difficult to style. As for rebonding, I've tried it many times; but it feels good sometimes to just let my hair grow naturally wavy, long and loose, without ornaments.

I just used VITRESS HAIR POLISH for a glossy, silky shine

It has a long-lasting fragrance too!

Johnny, oh johnny!

'The Tourist' trailer

This is the latest movie of Johnny Depp with Angelina Jolie-Pitt.

I just wanna tell you guys that I'm a huge fan of Johnny Depp. Ever since his 21 Jump Street days (80's baby, buking!), I was really hooked on him. He's got that boyish charm and mysterious persona that's intoxicating (drug ba sya?). Also a good dramatic actor, he has done quite a number of Oscar-worthy films. He's such a versatile actor; he's gone a long way since his bit role in 'A Nightmare on Elm Street', which I believe was his first role in a film. My favorite film of his is 'Blow'. Because blondie sya dun.:))

My bet for "Best Picture"

A story of a woman ahead of her time...She was Rosario, (the grandmother of Mr. Manny Pangilinan) as played by Jennylyn Mercado. This is directed by Albert Martinez, the actor..Can't wait to watch this...

Lovin thy ELF

I've been reading a lot of good things about elf so I have decided to try their products. I'm using the
elf eyebrow kit for about a month now and it is simply amazing...So easy to use. The shade is just right for me.

Price: Php 249

I also bought the complexion brush of elf, which can be used as blush brush or powder brush.

Stated at the back of packaging: This Taklon brush can be used with wet or dry products.

Creates an even and natural finish

I've purchased this just recently so I can't really comment much about this product. So I'll make a review maybe after 2 weeks...:))

Price: Php 249.75

Precious friends

"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art...It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival." --C. S. Lewis

I can't even begin to describe my life without friends; without them there's still family, but it's almost entirely different.

There are similarities and differences. Acceptance of each other's uniqueness is key to lasting relationships...

You only see here the laughter, the good times we share; but they are with me unfailingly during bad times too...

Treasured memories

you'll always remember

without a doubt...

My highschool barkada You lose touch for a while but when you see them again, it's like nothing has changed and it's highschool days all over again...

I so love my friends!

Instant long hair!

I have shoulder-length hair, brownish-black and I can't seem to style it much.. While shopping a while ago at SM department store with friends, I chanced upon wigs! Great-looking ones! They have clips to better hold on to your own hair. I tried one and had instant party hair!

Easy to clip at the back of your hair..
There are several lengths and shades to choose from.

 Wow! Long hair in a snap!

Loving it!

A prayer

We all have different styles when it comes to praying. Most of us pray directly to God just saying our wants and wishes, or asking for forgiveness or healing; but other people are more inclined to recite sets of prayers from a novena booklet. I guess I've always done the former more often nowadays. :)  Because as much as I've wanted to go to St. Jude in Mendiola (my fave saint), I can't seem to find the time, sad to say..

As I was cleaning my room the other day, I found an interesting book (which I forgot I have!) I bought several years ago at a popular bookstore. I was in a deep rut in my life at that time and so when I read this at the back of the book: "Do you want to be extravagantly blessed by God?" I just had to read it.

The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson

This book has taught me a simple yet powerful prayer:

A prayer that will bless your life

The author challenges us to make this Jabez prayer for blessing be part of the daily fabric of our lives. And guess what...I'm planning to do just that...again.

So hoTT!

I really like her beauty, this Solenn girl.. I feel like she's down-to-earth, whenever she's being interviewed.

She's entering showbiz in spite of the fact that she said ( in the reality show "Survivor" ), she will not..Oh well...

A multi-talented person, she's the in-house fashion designer at  Lulu Tan-Gan's and a makeup artist. Her style is classy and impeccable.

A classic beauty!

My lovely bestfriend

I just want to let you know how proud I am of my bestfriend Gigi. She's in Ireland for the past 10 years already. Whew! How time flies! Anyway, I've known her since 1995, we were officemates then; she's a nurse by the way and I'm a medtech then (I'm now a nurse, inspired by her). Aside from being a kind soul, she's also hard-working, smart, funny, a good story-teller (read: madaldal), and cute.

So I digress, I'm proud of her now because she lost a lot of weight. Goodbye baby fats! :))

She told me she did biking and hundreds of sit-ups, plus she dieted to the max. No artificial help (read: meds).
So from this:
To this!

VavaVoOm! A lot of people thought she's a foreigner.
Congratulations Gigi!!!

I'm so proud to be your friend, thanks for all your help (you know!)...

great for touch-ups!

Hey gals! I've discovered a great product..! A shine-free, vitamin E-enriched face powder.

Myra e Shine-Free Face Powder

I bet you all have your favorite pressed powders and you wouldn't want to trade it, right? But I can guarantee that this one works amazingly well! I've been using this for a month already and I assure you that it doesn't cake at all even when I use it  3-4X a day for touch-ups.

It's available in 2 shades: natural and light
Price: 130

I'm using the Light Shade (for fair skin). This compact has mirror and a nice sponge.

Disclaimer: These are all my personal opinion

maybelline eyeliner

There are lots of eyeliners available out there in the market today; it's so hard to choose really, but if you're looking for wearability and long-lasting effect, this is the one for you!

Maybelline Impact Express
Smooth Felt Liner

What I Love About It:
  • This black eyeliner is easy to apply on your upper lash line, it glides on smoothly. Of course practice makes perfect as with anything else.
  •  It lasts long even after I've done a lot of chores; even after a lot of sweating, it didn't smudge at all..
  • It's shiny, intense black color
  • easy to remove with baby oil

can't wait to see this

I really, really love rom-com movies (because... I am a hopeless romantic :D )

Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway are the stars in the movie, "LOVE and other drugs...", which for me, is a must-see because I like them both.

After seeing Jake in "Prince of Persia," I became an instant fan. And I really like the looks of Anne (what with her big, beautiful eyes).

for a taut, firmer skin

Everyone wants radiant and firm skin, right? But as we age, our skin loses some of its collagen. Yes dear readers, COLLAGEN makes our skin firm and taut.
I've discovered just the right cream for me and that's


This cream has potent collagen-building ingredients and other amino peptides that protects the skin from the sun's harmful UV rays.

Price: 1,200
What I Love About It:
  • It has a rich formula that's cool when applied to the skin
  • I've seen the effects right away, as early as 5 days
  • It gave me glowing skin
  • No more oily skin for me!
What I Don't:
  • nothing
