Living the Good Life

On Being Beautiful

Posted by on Jan 17, 2012 in Career, Celebrities, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Featured, Life, Personal

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. ~Roald Dahl Just a quick thought for today. I’m so inspired about David Archuleta’s positive outlook on life. He brightens up the room. His...

Posted by on Jan 4, 2012 in Business & Finance, Career, Life, Personal, Uncategorized

Are you the type who uses digital planners instead of the old fashioned Pen and Paper?

Life Lessons: A Flair for Financial Freedom

Posted by on Dec 2, 2011 in Business & Finance, Career, Featured, Life, Personal

Failing to plan is planning to fail. I’m always a planner when it comes to school, work, my daily activities, my own health and even with relationships.  I have a conservative approach in life and always prepare for the worst.  I believe that I don’t have the power to control events, other people’s actions or reactions, and the opportunities or chances that come my way.    But...

Every since I bought my MacBook Pro as a gift for myself on Valentines, my life has changed – in better ways and frustrating ways.  Until now I am not that used to using it as compared to Windows platform which I have been using my entire life.  I must say though, it hasn’t failed me in speed especially with photo and video editing which I heavily need – and running multiple...

Pride ruins relationships. I don’t know why people cling to this. Most of the time, when I argue with someone, I am the first one to swallow my pride. I know better now than before and I know that it’s just pointless to keep it there. I mean pride in a certain amount is ok, sometimes it’s good. But too much of something is just not good at all. It’s such a heavy feeling...

Juggling Elephants

Posted by on Mar 24, 2011 in Life

Earlier in one of my blog posts I mentioned how I miss reading again. Earlier this year, I also felt the quarter life crisis kicking in and I felt so depressed and confused but at the same time overwhelmed with the things that I need to do and the tasks that I needed to accomplish. My concerned boyfriend though I should read books again and suggested this book to me: Juggling Elephants. This...

Boredom, Blizzards and Idiots

Posted by on Dec 31, 2010 in Featured, Life, Personal

Our lifestyles have changed over time.  Most of us can’t stand doing nothing at one certain time.  We tinker on our iPads, cellphones and laptops when we’re idle and waiting.  I hate lines in the bank.  Some banks don’t allow the use of cellphone, so I wait in line for 15 minutes doing absolutely nothing.  O_o On the other hand, some great things sprung from boredom. For instance,...

Eat Pray Love Movie Quotes

Posted by on Dec 26, 2010 in Life, Movies & TV

Eat Pray Love is an inspirational drama based on a best seller book by Elizabeth Gilbert.  It is all about the author‘s search for finding her own self again and documented it on this lovely book.  I haven’t read the book but I just watched the movie.   Julia Roberts plays her character in the movie.  Many people say that reading the novel is better (it always is) but I can still...

Demi Lovato Twitter Photos, Rehab and Disney Scandals

Posted by on Dec 18, 2010 in Career, Celebrities, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Life, Personal

I really don’t follow this Disney girl a lot.  Not until I heard on TV that she admitted herself to rehab not because of drugs but physical and emotional issues. Demi Lovato Twitter Photos I was like “She’s doing fine.  Everyone thinks she’s doing fine, but she’s struggling with something.”  I admired her for being responsible and bravely took the first step to address her own...

It’s the time of the year when every journal junkie is in search for the best planner they could ever have for the new year.  Choosing the right planner for you is crucial.  This, by itself motivates you to write more and to look at your progress more often.  It’s based on experience, if the journal is lovely, I write more and I stare at my handwriting all the time.  Call it vain, but...

Confidence with Wacoal

Posted by on Oct 26, 2010 in Art & Photography, Fashion, Featured, Life, Personal

One of the biggest, most obvious physical change in my body when I was transitioning from being a teeny bopper to a lady is my chest.  It changed my life!  On fifth grade, I had my first sign of transition – menstruation!   I think I was the first among my classmates that had one and because of that, I had a bump on my chest earlier than the rest of them.  I thought it wasn’t normal and...

Self-pity is a way of paying attention to oneself, albeit negatively; it is a means self-soothing or self-nurturing. – Just got that description out of Wikipedia. Apparently, it’s attempting to gain something out of yourself, then you fail.  It’s like you helped yourself a lot of times to get someone’s attention, to get a job done and to get things done even just for yourself then...

I had this random thought while making another blog post earlier.  It’s all about the evil word Insecurity. To me, a girl gets insecure the moment she starts to feel that she’s no longer special. It’s all subjective though, it’s all about her feelings.  To the guy, she might still be his beloved princess with all the love in the world, but she doesn’t feel it.  There may be reasons...

Clumsy Candy

Posted by on Mar 3, 2010 in Life, Personal, Wall of the Weird

Wherever I go, I always stumble and fall. In whatever I do, I have super duper *minor* accidents. I believe in Guardian Angels. For if not, I think I would have died because of my clumsiness… Even if I just walk barefoot, I’d still slip-trip-and-fall… Sometimes I just don’t know what to do with myself anymore…   I used to get embarrassed all the time… But now, I just could not count...

There are times when you wake up and you feel relieved that you are living in the *real* world. I seldom have nightmares… and usually, it doesn’t involve ghosts and monsters… My nightmares involve some of my biggest fears, The one that can hurt me most… My nightmares play with my emotions…   And so, I woke up with sweat all over… Unsure if some were tears or sweat in the pillow.

I have been through a lot… I rant around my blog before… I complain and nag… I cried… I appear to be the victim all the time… I lose myself… I always wanted to be the best… I hate failures… I’d hate myself if I don’t achieve my goal… I drown myself with emotions… cloud myself with tears… I think I have gone a long way and I...

It is a very dangerous word.  With attachment comes dependency.  Dependency means addiction.  In absence of it, you will do all crazy means just to have it back and most often than not, you will regret making these insane actions.  In order to live without it, you must undergo REHAB… Attachment is not an illegal drug.  It’s not a drug even.  But the effect is all the...
