Never Stop Dreaming

Great things come to those who wait and persevere. Best things come when you have faith in Him. ♥

Life was never easy. From my princess-like lifestyle from birth to high school, to the global recession around 2008 which greatly affected my Dad’s industry and business - scrapped almost all that we have, to entering college filled with questions and fear, and eventually graduating in my degree as Cum Laude because I strove hard and held on to my promise for my parents. It’s been a crazy journey and I’m just 22. But all those challenges made me and my faith in God stronger. Parang kaya ko na lahat pagkatapos nun.

Cliche, but I firmly believe that God puts us in situations on purpose. Why our grandiose lifestyle shattered, why we had to experience pain that no one may even understand, why I’m blogging, why I entered a full-time job, why I thankfully ended up with Get Hooked 360. All these taught me lessons that I’ll carry with me forever. All these are God’s great blessings.

Never stop dreaming.

Faced another beautiful milestone just last weekend! With God’s glory and grace, plus the intense support system from the people around me (my parents, Joed, my friends, my bosses)… I finally bought myself a new car, straight from my hard-earned money ♥♥♥ Everything’s worth it!

One huge leap for my 22-year-old self! I know I’ve a lot of young readers, and I hope this would inspire you to keep going. Save up and start young. Don’t get disheartened by difficult times, they’re part of life. Work hard, reward yourself. Stay grounded. Never forget your parents, share your success with them. Offer everything to the Lord. :) Nothing’s impossible as long as you embrace all those!

In These Pants

Nothing beats a sexy pair of jeans! That perfect fit hugging your thighs, length that you desire, slightly distressed denims - my kind of hot! If you’re searching for such kind of jeans, why don’t you come and visit Memo? My current favorite’s from there! ;)

Memo recently released the most coveted #InThesePants collection. I’ve 3 pairs under this new group - 2 skinnies and 1 slim! Sharing with you the first skinny denims I wore to work a few days back.

You can be both sexy and laidback in these pants! For some reason, I felt extra confident that day with this ensemble. So make sure to chase and keep your best-fitting pants. You’ll need it especially on days when you feel like trash but you want to look good. Heels + pants will save you!

Might abuse this top, too! Memo’s got so many versatile items, you can match the pieces with other garbs and you’d still look great. I can imagine wearing this top with white shorts and sneakers and I’m already weekend-ready!

Coloursticks by Colourette Cosmetics

To my female readers, how many lipsticks do you own? I just checked my stash and I’m already on my 19th for the year. Yep, those that I own from 2014 and down aren’t included yet! :p That’s how of a lipstick freak I am. But honestly, from that pool, I only bring my 4 favorite shades with me everyday - MAC Brave, MAC Fanfare, L’Oreal Black Cherry and NYX Snow White. But now, my purse would probably need to carry 5. ;)

All these in one tube with the shade of your choice! :) Wondering where to purchase? I got mine from Colourette Cosmetics! ♥♥♥
