15 July 2012

Rest here. For a minute. It's okay.

I don't know if it's just 'old age' starting to creep up on me, but I feel like I've changed a lot within the last couple of weeks. I don't know, maybe I am just [as always] reading too much into it and I am just exhausted (•ิ_•ิ)? I am looking forward to having some much-needed rest and relaxation tomorrow and on Tuesday.

Here are some of the things that made the first half of my July extra-awesome.

Stripy day
Wore my black-and-white striped cardigan and the
pink-and-white striped headband/ turban from Svetlani
Ate out with my teammates and two bosses Shy and Paul.
Thank God for Italian food, new and old friends, and wonderful workmates.
Train Man by Hitori Nakano
What a wonderful book filled with charming characters.
Full review to be posted soon  (◕‿◕✿) 
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
I got the Movie Collector's Edition for half the price  ヽ(^。^)丿
I haven't started reading it yet because
I've seen the movie and I was really creeped out.
I'm sure I'll find time to read it when I'm at my parents' house
surrounded by my family and not alone in the apartment. 
I got some citronella patches from Watson's for my cousin Gab
because we're not sure if it's safe to apply anti-mosquito lotion on babies.
Good thing these patches can be placed on his clothes or cribs,
ensuring he's protected against dengue.
Also got a few items from Human ♥ Nature.
I've started selling to my officemates as well :)
I visited the Great Northern Sale in SM North EDSA and guess what I got among the
sea of dirt-cheap clothes and shoes?
Two scented candles. Which weren't even on sale.
Never have I felt so old and ~mature~.
Also passed by Heavenly Stitchin' Moment to check out materials for scrapbooking
when I chanced upon these. I just knew Meream would go wild!
You should visit her blog and check out her dollhouse
so you can see just how meticulous, creative and passionate
she is when it comes to her craft.
And because Meream has declared that my mini parallel universe-self lives in the Alcott Study,
I took the liberty of buying sweets to entertain my guests with (◡‿◡✿)
I can't wait to send these mini beauties to her.
Oh, I also got a charm bracelet from Papemelroti.
Charm bracelets make me happy 。◕‿◕。
The Forensic Files of Batman by Doug Moench
I love this book because it explores how Batman goes about solving
every case that comes his way by using his brain and the science of forensics, not superpowers.
The Dark Knight Rises movie is coming up and I honestly can't wait!
Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cottilard, Tom Hardy,
I hope the rest of July will be awesome! Anyway, with The Dark Knight Rises showing this week, I'm sure it will be. I hope the rest of the month willl be amazing for you, too! ヽ(∀゜ )人( ゜∀)ノ


  1. Love it! the stripy bow headband looks good on youuuuuu!



  2. Oh, Friuli! I love that place too. This post reminds me to go and eat there again soon!

    And Coraline. I got scared reading the book. Hurr... I still can't absorb how it's a children's book. But oh well, it's Neil Gaiman <3

  3. So far July has been pretty awesome for me too. I hope I don't jinx that anytime soon since we still have 2 more weeks to go.;)

  4. Did you see the movie? It's in 3D animation so it looks like it's meant for kids, but it's really creepy! I'm too scared to start reading the book hehe, I'll read it while commuting maybe. Or when I'm in my parents' house, with my family there with me 

  5. I hope I don't jinx it, too! 


Comments brighten up my day! Thank you for leaving kind words!
