how to create a vision board

A vision board's purpose is to give you inspiration and motivation. You put your favorite quotes, pictures of your life goals, or even pictures of your role models on a wall or any place that is easy for you to see. And whenever you need a mental push, you just take a long look at it you'll be motivated. That's what I do, anyway. And it does work on me.

It's a simple DIY craft project that can be a big help to you. (Or if you just want to make your room look extra cute!)

little travels: la union

Finally! A travel to somewhere outside of Metro Manila. I've been wishing for a province trip this year and it happened. My Mama Ida celebrated her 60th birthday at our province, La Union. The first weekend of the summer was truly spent well. Family, beach fun, amazing food - what more could I ask for?

current favorites list #1

When I start to like something, I go months or days obsessing over it. So instead of making a monthly favorites series, I decide to just make a list of things that I've been loving currently. If my favorites change, then I'll do an update!

how to find (and love) yourself

Ever heard of the phrase "You must love yourself first, before you love someone else"? All the while I thought it wasn't true. I kept giving love to other people - friends, family - without giving the same amount of love for myself and I was fine. Well, I thought I was fine.

on a blue day

I'm attached to the color blue. Honestly, I don't necessarily know why. Whenever I see the light shade of the sky on a sunny day or the dark shade of a blueberry, I am immediately in awe. Recently I discovered I own too much clothes of the color; I didn't do it intentionally. Why do I cling on to blue so much? I realize now that it might be because it's the way I feel on various occassions.

I feel blue. I always feel the darkest, deepest hue of blue. This is one of those days.

the album that saved my life

Discovering new music is always a great feeling. We listen to music for our own leisure, because it makes us happy or even makes us feel like we're not alone. I'd like to put it that way. Song lyrics can sometimes be the words we're afraid to say. When we listen to a song that we can relate to, the effect it does to us is indescribable. It's like finding an old best friend.

That's what I felt like when I listened to Divide by Ed Sheeran.

what i've been up to lately

A month. I've been away from the blogging world for over a month. I haven't posted anything or even read a blog post from those who I follow. But I have my reasons and they're plenty valid.
