The Making Of An Island Girl


My hopes are high when I decided to finally leave for good and work somewhere else where my skills and competencies will be further utilized (nax, lalim) - I'll be an island girl soon. Mid-December, I started collecting sets of "island girl" inspired outfits and accessories so today I'm sharing one.


When I was at Boracay a few weeks back, I noticed that majority of the locals are living in simplicity - laid back hair less the combing, denim shorts, sunnies and hats, flats and all. And this is the kind of life I wanted - no limitations, no boundaries, fly high as you can.

Quite a good decision to drop by Tiendesitas to score some denim shorts and a comfy cotton top, I was able to get a set for less than Php 500. Plus, big sister bought me this hat for Christmas, hihi. So much for a spoiled baby girl. *winkwink*




I just got back to Quezon City to spend my remaining days in the metro with my family - they've been very supportive with my decision of moving to another town and live a life I've always wanted. And I just recently signed up for Instagram.







Few more turn overs and I'm all set. I can't wait to spend every afternoon watching the sunset and cooking dinner of fresh seafood. I can't wait for my nth independence. I can't wait to take pictures and go places and finally meet strangers and share them my stories. I can't wait to find happiness! I'm sooo ready for you 2013!

Joy with a C soon to be an Island Girl of B ;p

Below AND Above Sea Level (Fifty Shades of Grey Skies)


I personally haven't read this book yet but last weekend, I had some encounters with "Christian Grey". The calming waters suddenly went mad like crazy and skies suddenly turned grey as big sister takes on her very first diving course with the help of friendly people from GearUp Diving. She was holding and reading this book the whole time so I took a shot - this is definitely going into my blog.

USB Under The Sea (Transcend JetFlash T3S Review)

My line of work involves the internet and computers. Similarly, file transfer is always present. We are starting to use a cloud based technology in our company to have majority of our files accessible at any place any time of the day for our own convenience specially if there are work loads that has to be done outside the office place - like a meeting in a dive resort or something.

Truth be told,  technology fail sometimes (specially when you need it the most!). Internet availability on product presentations, power interruption in the middle of the meeting, wifi connection fails, a sudden need to print something, blahblahblah and the list goes on. You have nothing else to do but to switch to another plan - not unless you only have A,B, and C and forgot to fill-out the rest of the letters of the alphabet.

So where exactly am I going at? File transfers, internet, or computers? Haha!  ;)

My Nth Take on Digital Painting
Wacom Pentablet is driving me nuts. I seriously want to take it home. There are a lot of things that I can do with it with all of the things I have on my hand.

This is just one of the projects I'm currently working on. So I guess yes, you need to watch out for it. ;)

Game Changer For A Whiter and Younger You - Luminous Glutathione Patch


I am serious when I say I'm trypanophobic. Injection has been one of my biggest fears up until now (I still scream and freak out on blood test and simple vaccine procedures). So when I heard straight from my boss that there is another way of taking gluta whitening that doesn't involve injection or pills, I suddenly got giddy and excited! A product not just for whitening but also works as an anti-aging supplement, who wouldn't?
