I am totally in love with my recent thrift find. I got this chiffon dress from one of my favorite thrift stores. Its airy fabric makes it comfortable to wear. Plus, the earthy color combination of the prints is what I am digging to these days.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, dearies!

Unwritten

♪♫Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else

Live your life with arms wide open ♫
To the years where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten 
I love the acoustic version of this song by Natasha Bedingfield.

self-timer

Had a lot of fun and difficulty taking my own photos. If you were there, I'm sure you'll laugh and  would equate me to "Sisa". haha. I used the self-timer of a point-and-shoot camera and placed it on top of the big box. It could have been easier if I have a tripod.  Well, resourcefulness it is!

this dress was given by Mike and he got it for only 15php (less than a dollar). I already wore this dress before. click here to see the full view of the dress.

break away

Aren't we all excited for the upcoming long weekend? I learned last week that it's a Holiday Friday in Philippines this week because it's the end of Ramadan for our dear Muslim brothers. I'm so excited to see my dear friends.I'm sure it will be full of fun and laughter. I'm tired of staying at home during weekends.I feel restless and tired.

And Oh I miss thrifting! I have to avoid thrift stores these days since the smell will only provoke my cough.It's more than a month now and I'm dying to find treasure from other people's junk.
soon! my dear ukay...soon!

pain and laughter

warning: this will be a super picture heavy post. hehe 

I'm back after more than 2 weeks of busy and sick days. Two weekends ago, Jonathan and I experienced one of the greatest tests of life. struggle it is. Saturday, he suffered from high fever and cough. I have to take care of him since we both live by ourselves. I was so worried because his temperature got worse. I cooked soup for him and gave him a power massage. Thank God he felt better Sunday morning. Then came Sunday afternoon and my head ached like hell. I began to shiver and my body was so painful that my boyfriend couldn't even touch me to give me a massage. At 7pm, my temp was so high then I knew I had fever. Jonathan took care of me the whole night. He wasn't able to have a good sleep because according to him, I was murmuring words while sleeping. He was too worried and decided to take me to the hospital. But I refused because I hate the thought of staying/sleeping in the hospital and also, I have never been confined ever. I don't wanna break that just because of my stupid fever. The next day, I felt better,fever no more. But until now, I am still suffering from dry cough. :((
And that's our story of "in sickness and in health." It is one of those days that you miss your parent's/mother's caress and care especially when you are sick. We live miles away from our family so we only have each other to rely on. Thanks bibs for everything. I love you. 

Then last weekend, we decided to make up for the lost time last last weekend because of our sickness. We always make sure the every weekend is an enjoyable one because that's the only time we're together. So we spent our Saturday in Tagaytay and in Nuvali. Tagaytay is our ultimate getaway place. We love to see beautiful houses and scenic views in this very peaceful place. 

Here's Tagaytay's newest family destination, Memory Lane. It is owned by Jolina Magdangal.It is very homey and 50s and 60s inspired resthouse turned into restaurant-gift shop-beauty salon in one.

Whenever we go to Tagaytay, we never fail to visit Nuvali where nature and people thrive ;)
