Things I’ve learned this year… (2018 edition)

Man, 2018. This year was exactly what I needed. This year was full of growth, learning, love, and strength. This year had its ups, and it had its downs. Some of those ups were just ok; some of those ups were amazing. Some of those downs were just a little down, and some of those…

Hogwarts Inspired Style – Hufflepuff

So far, I’ve shared outfits inspired by Slytherin, Gryffindor, and Ravenclaw. We are now at our final House, Hufflepuff. Fun fact: I was actually sorted into Hufflepuff on Pottermore once, and I remained in Hufflepuff until I deleted my account so I could start fresh and get re-sorted (this time, I got sorted into Ravenclaw)….

Hogwarts Inspired Style – Ravenclaw

So I’ve shared outfits inspired by Slytherin House and Gryffindor House, and now we’re moving on to my actual, official Hogwarts House (according to Pottermore, at least): Ravenclaw.  Fun fact: On almost every sorting quiz I’ve taken, whether it’s the Myers-Briggs inspired one on Time Magazine, the official Pottermore one, the old official Pottermore one,…

Hogwarts Inspired Style – Gryffindor

Last time, I wrote a post on outfit ideas inspired by Slytherin House. Today, I’m sharing outfit ideas inspired by Gryffindor, aka, The Jock House. (Don’t @ me.) Gryffindor Inspired Look I wanted the aesthetic of the Gryffindor-inspired looks to be starkly different from that of Slytherin’s. Gryffindors are bold, fearless, sometimes reckless and hot-headed….

Hogwarts Inspired Style – Slytherin

A while ago, I got really into creating different, more wearable looks inspired by the Divergent factions. I have no idea why, although at some point it served as a pastime while I was on a business trip to Shanghai. I’ve since found a replacement for Polyvore (RIP) so I could continue creating outfits and…

The whole truth, and nothing but the truth

A few people know this, but for the past few years up until January 12, 2018, I was in a really awful place. I was in a relationship that was destructive and toxic and emotionally draining, with a person who was verbally and emotionally abusive, who chipped away at my self-worth until there was very…

Film Review: Black Panther

This post is super late, sorry!! I started writing this like, right after I saw Black Panther and then life happened and this completely fell off my radar. But here it is now! Holy shit, I am like, legitimately shooketh. I watched Black Panther (I actually watched it twice, two days in a row—it was…

8 years later…

So singing is like, a thing I am constantly working at. It’s something I’ve always wanted to be good at, and something I never really felt like I was great at but always wanted to be better at. I don’t know if it’s because growing up Filipino, music, and singing in particular, were huge parts…

Summer uniform pt.1: Boyfriend jeans

So, it took me a while to jump on the boyfriend jean bandwagon because I always thought I’d just be drowning in them. What finally converted me? Summers in Texas. Summers in Texas are HOT. Like, hot AF. Skinny jeans are fine if you’re spending your day inside a cold office during the summers, aka…
