Bedroom Dreams

Hey loves! As you guys know, I've been dreaming of having my room redecorated for a long time now. Finally, my mum had agreed that my bedroom did need a makeover. I've been searching the big interwebs for home ideas, especially bedroom ideas, that I want my room to be patterned after. Like the photo above. I'd really want a bedroom like that but with a different color scheme. I've been thinking of doing a minimalist themed room.

I'm thinking of white walls, black details, and red or maybe green pops of color for a little hint of personality. I'm also loving this one type of bed that I saw online. It's called the platform storage bed at and it is marvelous. I'm thinking of really doing that on my room since I'm a hoarder and I need a lot of storage space for my stuff.

I've also thought of having a very compact room like the photo below but I feel a bit claustrophobic. Being in a 3x3 sq. meter room can get really stuffy. Fortunately though, my room's on the second floor and I get to see some view of the outside world. My things are also really big right now that I find it hard to move around so my resolve was to make it a hanging bed or an elevated bed so that I can use the bottom part as my cabinet or I can put my study table under it.

I'd have more room to chill out and I'd also have more foot room and just a general place to bum around yet still be active. Besides, I really want a yoga mat or a foam mat in my room so that I can exercise every once in a while. Or maybe even put a shoe rack inside my room so that my shoes are more accessible to me than they are now. It's really hard to plan an outfit with just your imagination. Hahaha!

I'll end my post here. I'm rambling. xx

[SARTORIAL] My Ge-ge-generation!

Hello loves! I've started doing sartorial posts in my blog and the post that started it all, here, was somewhat a successful venture. I decided that I'll be doing sartorial posts more often here in OFL. The truth is, I don't know if I can handle being a sartorial since I get shy at times. I just feel awkward asking someone if I could take their photo then take their photos in the middle of the street or in a hallway. It's just sooo weird and awkward.

So, I decided to start with people that are close to me, my friends, my family and my relatives. The first one was my classmate, Janina, and now I'm featuring my cousin, Yannah. She's really young. She's in her 2nd year in high school and she already has the laid-back chick vibe going for her. Haha! I think it runs in the family. Hahaha!

[5Min Lit] Circles

You pull me close
Push me hard
Am I yours?
Or am I just lost?

You make me feel things
Things that are not real
Yet I welcome you
With open arms

I am lost
I miss you
I think I might
No, I can't.

Writing it down
It will make it true
You might read this
You might assume

[OOTD] We're Never Ever Getting Back Together

Hello lovelies! I'm back with another outfit post from my outfit photo stock. I think I'm almost done with all my outfit posts but do not fret, I promise to make new ones soon. I do hope that you guys are even relatively interested in what I say. Anywho. I'm going to show you guys the outfit I wore on Christmas day. My outfit may seem too hot for you but I swear that it isn't that hot. 

I don't know if you guys have the same tradition as I do but, ever since I was a young girl my mum had always told me that whenever it's Christmas time we need to wear something red. I guess as I grew up, I have remembered that and I always decide to wear something red whenever it's December 25.

I wanted to show you guys my very simple and light make-up before I get on with the actual outfit post. If you're a constant reader then you'd know that I'm falling in love with cat-eye inspired make-up. I'm sporting it again in this look as well as some light blush and an even lighter jewel tone lipstick. I'm not really someone who puts make-up on a regular basis but I do enjoy learning how to put on make-up.

I can give you guys a quick tip.

Noel. Noel. Noel.

Hello lovies! How are you this fine day? If you've been a reader of this blog for quite a while now, you'd know that I'm a big fan of bazaars, thrift stores, and any place where I can get a good deal for the clothes I wear. If you're a student like me, who doesn't have a trust fund or a job that gives tons of money, then you're a prude like me. 

We hate spending money because we know it's hard to come by and we're thinking we might need the money on another time. But then, we get this moment where we suddenly splurge all our money. In my case, I do that during bazaar seasons or during food trips. Hahaha! As you know, December is usually a bazaar month and my mum and I decided to go to the annual Noel bazaar that was held in PICC. We also went there for the Kapuso Foundation's Celebrity ukay-ukay. I just wanted to share to you guys some of the things I saw...

[OOTD] You Must Be My Once In A Lifetime

Hello lovies! Classes are back and I am more than ecstatic to be back to school, although I think it's for all the wrong reasons. Hahaha! I'm posting another stock outfit post that I was supposed to post on an earlier date. Oh well. This is actually a very simple outfit and I wore this on my mum's birthday, which I posted a few days ago.

I'm warning you guys now, the backdrop of my photos in this post is really messy. Hahaha! I didn't want to go outside so I just took photos in our living room. So, forgive me. I cannot promise you I won't do it again but... yeah. No buts. I'll just get on with the outfit post.

Blabber, blabber. Chatter, chatter.

[OOTD] Life's Too Short To Even Care Anymore

Hello dearies! Surprise, surprise! I'm posing another stock outfit post today. This should have been posted last month but I believe in the saying that it's better late than never. At least I won't regret not making a post and hate myself 'cos I lost you guys. I love you guys too much to even imagine having none of you around. It would just be too lonely. Any who, enough of the blah blah.

I'm really lucky today since I got the chance to take an outfit post during the magic hour of fashion bloggers. It's the time where the sun is almost touching the tip of the skyline, the rays are not harsh, and photos just look unbelievably gorgeous. If you want proof, just check out my photo above! I mean, come on! When did I even look as flawless as that? (Sorry. I praised myself. Hahaha! How egotistic of me.)

The photo above is one of the most awesome photo I have of my hair. I mean, I can't even. I'm going to be sad when I'll change my hair color in a few weeks. I'm still undecided with Blue Black and Violet Black or somewhere along that line. If you're following me on Instagram, you'd know how much I want a blue or violet hued hair. I just really want it so, I will. If I am to regret it, I'd rather regret doing it than not doing it because I'm scared. Enough blabber, on to the outfit post!

[5Min Lit] Clouded

I stare at your eyes but don't know what you see.
I see my reflection but is it really me that you see?
Flowering words, hopeful whispers and tantalizing stares,
What is all of this for, really?

I am not yours, you are not mine
But in a cold world of sick passersby,
You and I is all we've got to survive.
You are not mine, but I am yours now.

Stop. Don't look. I understand.
This is not the game you want to play.
I do not want to play your games.
All of this is clouded, too clouded.

Hey dearies! I'm posting another outfit post today. I don't know if you guys are enjoying it but I'm going to post it anyway. This is a stock outfit post again, I haven't been posting during the break and most of Nov-Dec even though I've got tons of things to share. Ready yourselves my dears, I'll be posting more often now. Teehee.

How To Download A File Via Google Docs

Hey dearies! I saw a message on the chatbox asking how to download the PDF file in this post and decided to make a short tutorial so that those who have the same question would know what to do. Okay.
  1. Click the link which will re-direct you to the Google Docs folder;
  2. No need to sign in or what-not, just click on the book you'd like to download;
  3. It will either open on a new tab or on the same tab;
  4. On the document's menu bar (upper left part) you will see a printer button
  5. Beside the print button is the download button, the arrow pointing downwards.
  6. VIOLA! You have the file! Just repeat for the other books.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to message me on the chatbox or my email address. If you still can't download the files, message me and I'll give it to you via email. This post goes out to Renea who asked the question. I hope I've helped you! :)

[Book Club] Fifty Shades Trilogy

Hello dearies! If you've read my previous posts, you'd know I've read Fifty Shades of Grey and unexpectedly liked it which made me continue reading all of the books within 3 days. Yes, I read fast and non-stop. I really didn't expect to like it since I've heard that it was like Twilight, although I've also read Twilight and all the books before. I decided to share to you the PDF files of the 3 books. Enjoy!

Truth is, I didn't expect the trilogy to have such an alluring hero that seems to also be an antagonist. Let me warn you though, it is not for those few that have sticks up their asses (figuratively speaking). Even if Mr. Grey would love a stick up someone's arse, we don't need uptight kids here. If you're into Fanfiction, especially the NC17 ones, you might like this trilogy. I'm not going to praise it too much since I did find some irritating things in the book, as well as some missing parts that I wished the author had included. All-in-all, it's a good book to read to pass time.

My Mum's Big Five-Oh

Hello lovelies! I wanted to share to you guys my mum's milestone. She has reached 50 years old last December 09, 2012. It was a small gathering of relatives and close family friends. My mum, being a practical and lazy woman, opted to order some food for her guests. It was not much but it was a great way to reconnect and have a small get together with our relatives, as well as friends. My step-dad even sent my mum 50 roses, 10 of which were pink roses. Mind you, he's in Brazil right now and he had ordered this piece while he's in Brazil. Sweet right? Very teeny bopper-ish but still, quite sweet.

I think 50's a big number. I'm very happy for and grateful to my mother. Without her, I wouldn't be here sharing to you guys. I have to admit though, I'm not her ideal daughter but I am trying to amend for my mistakes. I wished, or still wish, for her to stay healthy and strong. I hope that she'll live 10-30 more years. I know that's short but my mum said that she'd rather die in her mid-60s or early 70s than be bedridden and sickly. I guess she does have some point.

[OOTD] Let My Love Adore You

What I wore: Tube Top (Bazaar), Cardigan (Terranova), Skirt (Thrift Shop), Shoes (Australian/Landmark), Watch (Casio), Accessories (Romwe)

Hello loves! I had a great day yesterday and I totally forgot to make a post/draft a post yesterday. So, I'm making this post now that's supposedly posted yesterday. I decided to make an outfit post since I miss doing these and I feel like you guys appreciate it when I make outfit posts. I want to share to you guys what I did yesterday but I feel selfish and want to keep it on my own.

Let's get on with the look. This look is much like my previous post, it's a stock outfit photo set that I haven't made into a blog post. One thing that I really like about this look is that it's very minimal. I just played with 2 tones, black and red, then I made use of a neutral colored flats. I think with styling for plus size women, you need to know your strength and weaknesses.

[OOTD] Take My Breath Away

Hello loves! I woke up unexpectedly way too early today so I decided to make an outfit post. I have tons of outfit posts to make since I had been taking OOTD photos a lot these past few months. Forgive me if I didn't share it to you guys. I was just that lazy. I wore the outfit above last month, December, around mid-month. I was thinking of something formal but still casual. Do you think I pulled it off?

I don't know why but I'm liking skirts more and more. I find myself wanting for new skirts or opting to wear skirts rather than shorts or pants. It's comfortable, breezy, and very easy to wear. I think it's perfect for lazy days. It has some disadvantages though, such as not being able to sit on the floor. But, as you can see, I'm very resourceful and I still sat on the floor. Hahaha!

WHAT I WORE: Versace Polo (Top), Marks & Spencer (Skirt), Parisian (Shoes), Casio (Watch)

Would you believe me if I told you that my shoes are more expensive than skirt and top? Yes. It's true. I paid for my shoes more than my top and skirt. I am not shitting you. Here's the reason why...

Holiday 2012: Hello Kitty Town

Hello loves! I think most of us know who these feline friends are in the photo above. I don't think I need to tell you guys who Hello Kitty is since I'm pretty sure you had loved Hello Kitty once. Don't try to deny it. I know we've all been there, even if you're a guy. I know you loved Hello Kitty or one of the friends she had in her town. I will admit, I love Hello Kitty.

Actually, I love Hello Kitty, My Melody, Kerokerokeropi and their whole crew. I was really happy when I saw the events center in SM North Edsa-The Block had a Hello Kitty Town setup. It was Christmas themed and truly lovely. Even if I still had classes and exams to stress about, I felt like it was really Christmas. I just loved it. Okay, before I get carried away I need to warn you guys that this post will be a very photo heavy post. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

The town was split up into 4 houses, an arch, and during the later days they even had cars that has Hello Kitty interior and exterior designs. It was totally girly, totally not me, and totally awesome. I loved it! Hahaha! I just have this weak spot for Hello Kitty. It's so bizarre. After the jump, you'll see the different houses, the details, and what-not. Hope you'll like it loves! xx

Seoul Garden: Bibimbap

Hello loves! I've been using my holiday break/term break quite well. I'm really sorry for my inactivity in this blog. I owe you guys a lot especially my old readers. I'm going to make things right. I promise. Please, just trust me on this. I know I've been spouting promises here and there, but I assure you that I'll do it this month. Nothing's holding me back anymore. I'm really sorry for letting my blog get dull this holiday season.

Anywho, I just wanted to share to you guys something that makes me have a love/hate relationship with food. As you know from my older post about Seoul Garden, I am in love with their food. We always eat at their buffet and love their selection of bibimbaps. If you're not familiar with bibimpap, I guess the easiest way to describe it is that it's like paella but served in a hotpot sort of bowl. I'll stop blabbering and just show it to you guys.
