Farewell 2010

2010 has been a good year for me. So many blessings. I have my share of problems too but I would rather think of the positive things than dwell on the negative things. As I bid goodbye the the year, these are what I am thankful for.

Good Health. I'm physically fit to be able to work, as my medical result turned out. Yippeee! Except for minor cuts and hello eye wear, I am good to go..

Bondings. With my family and relatives. With friends and acquaintances. With co-workers. My social network has grown and my social life has become active after years of dormancy. haha!

Travel and Adventure. Ive been to places I've never been before or re-visited places I went to when I was still a toddler. Surigao. Maramag. Pagadian. I have conquered the Zipzone challenge in Dahilayan, Bukidnon and conquered my fear of heights with the Skywalk and Edge Coaster in Cebu! Hip hip! Hooray!!! I have renewed my passport so *fingers crossed* for future escapades. Oh! I also get to have Andy, my trusted travel companion. tee hee!

Fashion. The caterpillar has turned into a cocoon and is now ready to free herself from bondage. Drama! I can never say I am a fashionista but there is still room for improvement in my sense of style. It is never too late. Bang! I'm loving my flat shoes this year!

Looking forward to what is in store for me in 2011. I have a feeling its gonna be a better year. Happy New Year, Everyone.

What were you thankful for in 2010?

Live Curious

"Live curious" is about exploration, pioneering and questioning, which captures National Geographic's shared spirit.

I read about this campaign in Daphne's Diary months ago and I was super duper interested to having the shirt and as a Christmas present, I bought my self one.

If only they have the "Everything deserves a why" statement, I would have bought that.

Giving into Temptation

Its been quite a while since I last purchased some books. I strayed away from NBS (that's National Bookstore, btw) and Book Sale due to financial constraints. Haha! Well, basically because I aimed to buy some stuff for myself.

Then, today, after work, I was supposed to meet up with bff K but plans got changed at the last minute so I went to the mall to kill some time. I came upon the sale stall of NBS and lo! and behold! There were books on sale! Although some were not in new condition but still in good reading condition.

my purchases

Jodi Picoult's Second Chance: Regular price: Php289 Sale price:Php50

Cecelia Ahern's If you could see me now: Regular Price: Php349 Sale price:Php75

Ann Brashares' Forever in Blue: Regular Price: Php289 Sale price:Php100

Sophie Kinsella's Confessions of a Shopaholic: Regular Price: Php275 Sale Price:Php100;

Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic Ties the Knot: Regular Price: Php275 Sale Price:Php90;

Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic and Baby: Regular Price: Php259 Sale Price:Php75;

Brooke Shields' Down came the rain (Hard Bound) Regular Price: Php99 Sale Price:Php50;

Gifts with my name on it

I posted my personal wishlist for 2010 and I'm happy to say I got two out of five. I bought myself a digital camera and a belle de jour power planner 2011. Yehey!!!

My barkada's been bugging me for my wishlist for our annual exchange gift. We usually do this to make it easier for our manita to think of something to give. heheh. Bff D posted her wishlist here. Although there's a slim chance that my barkada will get to read this (but I'm hoping they do) then the following are my choices:

In line with out theme: Something that starts with the letters from our first name or nickname. In my case, its BETHANIE MAE, BETH, or BEE.

B for BOB SHOES. Since I can't afford a pair of Toms now, a pair of locally manufactured Bob shoes would suffice. hehehe. I'm a size 8, by the way. *winks*

B for Bench Jeggings with back pocket. I'm surprising myself with this one. Never thought I would want to own a pair of jeggings considering how my thighs bloated. haha!

B for Boyfriend Polo Shirt. This would be nice to pair up with the jeggings... heheh
