can't sleep

I can't sleep. I can't get back to sleep, rather. I don't know what time it is and I really don't care. I've been thinking a lot these past few days and I am glad that the long weekend has paved way for me to be distracted. A lot of thanks to my sweet baby (niece), Ycey. I wanted to call her babybabes but she doesn't like it. She'd rather I call her baby :)

I worry a lot about the future, and I think about the past. Weird combination. Yet it seems my thoughts are far from reality. There are so may things I really really want to do and yet I feel so restricted.

Am I trudging the path that is meant for me?

Has the signs been given? Did I ignore them?

So many questions. No answer.

This is just a random post. I'm really not sensible at this moment.

I was on google searching for a recommended seamstress or dressmaker in my locality, when I stumbled upon this site, Etallasa. I was browsing through her site and I think I will learn from her as she also blogs about fashion, one department that I try to get into this 2012. :)

She is giving away cool items from StyleCandy, a local fashion store that I have yet to visit.
I'm joining her giveaway, which ends until January 20, 2012.

Real Steel down the road

I watched Real Steel a few days ago and heard this song at the beginning of the movie. I have a soft spot for country music and when I got the opportunity, I googled.


Well I have been searching all of my days
All of my days
Many a road, you know
I’ve been walking on
All of my days
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night
Well I have been quietly standing in the shade
All of my days
Watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made
All of this rain
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night
Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
All of my days
I cried aloud
I shook my hands
What am I doing here
All of these days
For I look around me
And my eyes confound me
And it’s just too bright
As the days keep turning into night
Now I see clearly
It’s you I’m looking for
All of my days
Soon I’ll smile
I know I’ll feel this loneliness no more
All of my days
For I look around me
And it seems He found me
And it’s coming into sight
As the days keep turning into night
As the days keep turning into night
And even breathing feels all right
Yes, even breathing feels all right
Now even breathing feels all right
It’s even breathing
Feels all right

prime heels :D

Today, I pampered my soles to a foot spa. What I loved about the session was that the pampering was up to my knees and not just up to the ankle like what other beauty salon offer. Of course, my legs were pampered in a different way that my soles :)

I also had my toenails polished in a cute way. It is now in a green shade =)

Yesterday, while I was at the mall, I saw this nice pair of shoes. I don't know what is it about it that I bought it without second thought. I've never bought heels that I won't be able to wear on a daily basis or for work, much less a 4-inch heel.
My BFF, D loves to wear high heels and I have never been able to share her enthusiasm. She drools over heels while I drool over flats. Although I know how to appreciate the shoes, the pain of wearing it takes the wits out of me. Oh well, there are always the first time and with 2012? Bring it on!!!


I'm not much of a coffee drinker. I don't even hang out at Starbucks to qualify as a regular. My officemate, Apple got her 2012 planner as a group effort :) She had this extra coupon with 5 stickers on it so I asked for it and she gave it to me. I am very far from completing the rest of it (option 2) until the time we had task force where in one of the visiting officers from our mother company treated everyone to some coffee and frappe and got me additional 15 stickers :) Yahoo! 3 more and the 23 stickers from core drinks will be completed :)

The other day, I watched a movie in the cinema and treated myself to a frappe. I was surprised since the barista gave me 2 stickers for my order. Then I saw that they are on promo, giving away 2 stickers for every order :)

Today, I finally got my card completed and now have my oak 2012 planner :)
An achievement for a minimal cost. hahaha. Less than P300.00 :D

Starbucks double stickers promo will run until Jan 13, 2012.
Collection of stickers has been extended until Jan 20, 2012.
Redemption of planner is until March 2012.

I have made a very drastic move with regards to my tresses. Whenever I'm stressed, my hair is the first to experience my cruelty. In my previous job, I cut my hair almost every 2 weeks that I have come close to doing a G.I. Jane...

I don't know what has gone into my head that when I passed by a salon I asked if they do curls.
The left photo is my new year photo taken 01.01.'12 while the photo in right was taken today, 01.08.'12...

My hair now is so frizzy since I committed 2 mistakes after a curl -- first, took a wash in less than 24 hours after the treatment and second, combed the hair (using a wide toothed combed though)

I am now on the hunt of products that would tame my curls or what is left of it. haha.
