• InPlaces to go, People to see


    Sharing with you few snaps of one of my favorite beaches in the Philippines: Dahican beach in Mati, Davao Oriental. No filter needed for this natural beauty actually. But I just thought I’d play around with my newly purchased Lightroom desktop presets and I absolutely loved how these turned out! Presets I used for these photos are from Corinth Suarez’s San Andres Collection (they’re still on sale, guys!) and I found myself using that particular preset bundle on almost all of my beach vacation photos when I also got other LR presets I could use. LOL. Needless to say, it’s my faaaave! ❤ Read more

    Bye bye Balayage. Hello Black Hair!

    If you didn’t already know, I went from balayage to all black hair! And boy do I feel brand new! 😀 It’s actually my natural hair color. Hehehe. I know it isn’t an exciting color at all, but I was so ready and happy to finally go back to it after seven long years! My inspiration for going dark are Shay Mitchell and Carli Bybel ❤ Here’s a short video showing my new hair: Read more

    New Year. New Planner.

    Bitter sweet goodbye to 2017. Hello and cheers to 2018!✨

    It’s a new year, new day, new journey. It also means new planner for me! Yay!

    The planner I’m using for this year is the Rhodia soft cover dotted notebook. It’s actually a notebook where I’m doing bullet journaling. Actually, I recorded an unboxing video of my new notebook but haven’t gotten around to editing it yet. I’m thinking perhaps I’ll just do a flip-through of my bullet journal when it’s all filled up!

    In my previous blog post, I shared that a bullet journal system works best for me because it lets me write freely and carelessly! I never thought I’d enjoy bullet journal as much as I do now. It somehow motivates me to get my shit together. I’m hoping I will be more consistent with it this year since the Rhodia I got is smaller and lighter to carry around with me inside my bag when I’m out and about!

    Yes, that is CBTL Philippines’ 2018 Giving Journal, which instead of me giving it away to a dear friend or relative, I’m keeping it this time. Documenting life events, especially special moments with people that matter, is always a nice idea. And I just want it all in a separate space, offline


  • Inlate night musings

    Don’t hang out with people who don’t love you. Don’t try to impress people who aren’t worth it. Don’t try to win people over who aren’t worth it. Focus on yourself, and focus on the people who are really awesome and who love you. Don’t hang out with people who make you feel like shit. Don’t spend your energy on them. There is so much pressure to be part of the right thing: well, you should create the right thing. If you don’t see it, create it. If you don’t see what you want, be the change you want to see.
