Farewell, February!

29 February 2012

This month, I:

♥ changed layouts and color schemes FIVE times. I sincerely hope I won't get tired of this one because dealing with html and css can get tiring after a while haha.

♥ went on a beauty shopping spree with my fab beauty-blogger and fashion-blogger friends.

♥ got stranded in rainy Serendra with my dear blogger-friend Pax and shared stories over cupcakes and coffee.

♥ watched my ultimate favorite movie for the nth time and fell in love with it all over again. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is perfect.

♥ went to the newest Italian restaurant in the metro and had the best pizza ever.

♥ experienced eating cereal with milk how to strut, spin, shimmy, and shake to Zumba for the first time.

♥ saw a really funny movie and decided it would be tough for me to choose between Chris Hardy and Tom Hardy if I were Reese Witherspoon. I liked This Means War, I don't care what film critics say! ;D 

♥ saw my face in two major publications that featured photos from two events I attended.

♥ painted my nails this lovely blue shade of BK polish topped with Orly's Love Each Other. My camera phone couldn't capture it, but the purple micro-glitters of the Orly polish is ultra-gorg!


♥ had a wonderful time with my dear girl friends Poly and Mich during our girls' day out yesterday at Eastwood.

My Brownie Walnut Fudge from Stackers
♥ decided I have a new favorite comfort drink.

Fruity Yogurt tea with pearls from Moonleaf Tea Shop
♥ went on an accessories shopping spree care of SM Accessories. I will feature photos from the launch of the Lovin' Summer collection on a future post ;)

I can't wait to show you the rest of my loot!
♥ took the day off from work since it's a Leap Day and I wanted to spend my extra 24 hours doing something fun (not that being in the office is no fun...)

♥ decided to reward myself with a book since it's payday. Books over bags and clothes anytime. :)

There's only one problem. I couldn't decide which to buy so I ended up getting two:
Lourd de Veyra's The Best of This is a Crazy Planets AND The Best of Archie Comics.
But since I have the EQ of a pillow, I ended up going back for this:
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
It was a tough choice between this and John Green's Looking for Alaska.
This month has its fill of personal triumphs and beautiful disasters - there are some things I wish I could change but I really don't have the power to control them; I only have the power to control how to react to them. So this is me taking charge. I refuse to be unhappy and feel defeated, so I'll just suck it in and continue being awesome.

And this is bidding farewell to February and welcoming March with open arms, especially with its sweet promise of The Hunger Games movie and Hanson concert. ♥ What are you most looking forward to this coming month?

I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point,
"If this isn't nice, I don't know what is."
- Kurt Vonnegut
