What If

Sometimes life puts you in a position of whether you should take that next big step or just stay in your comfort zone, of whether you should jump off the water or just stay at the cliff and wonder what might happen if you did jump.

Will you hit a rock? 
Will you drown? 
Will you die? 
Will you live? 
Will you conquer your fear? 

It's a risky business - going out of your comfort zone, exploring the other side not knowing what it would really be like. 

But then again, what's the point of living a comfortable yet stagnant life if you can go out there and experience something new? It'll never be easy, it's going to be full of uncertainties, but, probably, it's going to be worth it.

Note to Self


I feel like a little girl in the middle of a crossroad,
faced with many options but unsure of where to go.

Wedding theme: Watercolor

Sharing some wedding inspiration here. Disclaimer: I am not yet getting married. I haven't met him yet so I guess it will still take a long time before our paths cross but, as of now, it's just nice to look at these pictures and have some idea on what that special day would be like.

PMCP 2015 (Day 4)

For the last day of the conference, I wore this little red number. It's the smallest size but it is still a bit big for me. But...I really like the fabric so I still got it! Haha! The neckline was kind of revealing, thus I got a little help from a black lace tube. And of course, to make things look formal and business ready, I added a black blazer.

PMCP 2015 (Day 3): Samal Island

The third day of the conference was spent island hopping in Samal island. I've been to Samal before but this was my first time exploring the different areas of the island. We went to several coves where one can see schools of fish and other marine organisms, corals, and reefs. Unfortunately, we didn't have an underwater camera. But then again, it's the experience that counts.

Excited and nervous at the same time... That's me when I was about to take a dip.

But I get the hang of it and I have to say I really began to enjoy being there, swimming and looking at the rich marine sanctuary.

We also went to the beach. It was noon time and as you can see (in the image below), the water was very, very calm.

The obligatory jump shot with the girls. Hihi! Good thing it only took two shots to capture this.

Posing with some posts. Yes, everyone had a moment with these structures.

The one thing that I really like with this beach is that a few walks away from the waters, you'll see some trees and the ground covered with green carpet.

Before returning to exploring coves, a group shot is definitely a must-have.

It was indeed a day well-spent. Even though I got a bit sunburned, it's nothing compared to all the fun and amazing underwater view that I saw and experienced.

Nature is definitely a lovely piece of creation!

New haircut, Aztec Healing Clay, and Empties

Hi everyone! Just a little update. I've never gotten a haircut since I left the Philippines last July. It's been 7 months alrea...
