Instagram: March 2013

Hello guys! Sorry for the lack of updates here these past few days. I decided to take a break from blogging this Holy Week so I can focus on reflecting (religion-wise) and spend some quality time with my parents and friends. I feel so refreshed and fulfilled now, and I hope you had a wonderful and meaningful Holy Week as well! :)

Anymoo, since I also failed to shoot some outfit photos (and now I regret it a lot 'cause the streets were really empty especially last Thursday and Friday), let me share to you a couple of photos from my Instagram plus some side stories instead. :p

You see, I only gave in to the IG craze mid-March this year. I was actually battling with myself if I'll create an account or not. I know I blab a lot on Twitter and my blog already, so I felt scared that I might get highly addicted/distracted to Instagram and make my life a bonggang bonggang wide open-book to everyone.

Yet when thesis was FINALLY over, as well as other school requirements, my parents gave me an iPad mini as a reward. I knew there'd be no more stress in my system and I'll probably be a bum for a few months, I figured it was already the perfect time to say hello to Instagram. :p Follow me there, @listentoarnie, yes? xx

Now for some random March photos:

Visita Iglesia 2013

My Mom and I visited 4 churches this year. Initially, we planned to stick with our tradition (which is to visit 7 or 14 churches), but we ventured into a new kind of Visita Iglesia. We went to St. Pio Chapel near Eastwood, braved the long lines and intense heat to carry huge crosses while we go through the 14 stations. ALL WORTH IT! ♥

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram @listentoarnie ;) I update there more often! xx

Happy Easter, loveys!

Ready For Summer

Starting off this week by embracing summer through this outfit post! I'm all done with school requirements and got nothing to do but wait for our Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation Day. And instead of job-hunting, here I am, looking for vacation places and activities to do this summer. Lol, what a bum! :p My Mom and Dad suggested that I should take a rest for a couple of months first before venturing the crazy and stressful work world. Yay! I love my parents for not pressuring me on anything!

Anyway, back to the outfit! It was scorching hot in Manila days ago so I decided to wear something fresh and breezy. Good thing Cesa Designs, one of my favorite resortwear brands, sent me this beach cover-up and it was perfect for the blistering weather.

This cover-up is so versatile - you can style it in so many different ways! See, even if it's primarily made to be worn in the beach, you can still pull it off during casual days in the city.

This bag was Ana's gift for me last Christmas. Hugs and thanks big sis!! :)

What are your summer plans, loveys? I'd love to know! xx
