peace, love, & lip gloss

I'm not ready for this.

Last day of the first quarter of 2014, what up.
March flew by so fast, I feel like I didn't even get a single deep breath in.
This month I: worked from 8AM to 1AM because we had two events on the same day; learned calligraphy; went to the first baby shower I've ever been to; read a charmin…

You are invited: Harringtons Lifestyle Auction

Are you one of those people who love collecting pieces with history attached to them? I feel like I am as my room is filled with so many memorabilia and I find it difficult to part with anything with sentimental value - be it a movie or concert ticket, a random note passed in class, and even my sc…

#ComeJoinTheCARAVAN with Stockton Row

"Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy." And so my Blogspot profile states. I have a lot of charm bracelets and I love layering them, but my favorite combo is probably this trio:

From the last time I wrote about Stockton Row, I have acquired a new piece from their fir…

Bowling skillz? I don't haz it.

My friends are continuously and consistently helping me find things I suck at because apparently it's not enough that I got my ass kicked in both badminton and boxing. Last night, it was bowling. My sister even went with us!
We went to StarJ, a seven-story building in Malabon that used to be a…

The search for the perfect party dress

Aside from work, my social life, and other commitments, I am buried waist-deep on party planning. Preparations for the #LegenwaitforitdaryKrissyParty are underway, and I need to take this seriously as I only have less than two weeks(!!!) left! 
I was able to go out for dinner with Kira and her fam…

The makings of a legendary party

It all started as a joke.
I was chatting with my friends Ed and Jonas about the inevitable end of the greatest and my most favorite show on Earth, How I Met Your Mother. We talked about how extremely sad we will be when the finale airs because there'll be no future episodes to look forward to,…

"Tonight is the night, we’ll fight 'til it’s over."

I went to the Manila leg of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's World Tour at Mall of Asia Arena last night, and wow, I didn't expect I would enjoy it as much as I did!
I love going to concerts so I definitely felt the same jitters I feel each time, even more so as before last night, the latest gig…

Battle of the Body Oils

There are only a few luxuries I enjoy as much as lounging on a comfortable sofa with a book and a cup of hot chocolate on-hand; scented candles, pretty stationery, a full eight hour-sleep, and body oils are things I don't need, but they surely make me feel like a million bucks.
Of these, I'…

All set for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Happy Friday/ Pay Day/ Pi Day! I'm in a celebratory mood today because I am going to see Macklemore & Ryan Lewis on Sunday! ヽ(´ー`)ノ 

As for my concert ticket giveaway sponsored by SM Accessories, I had a great time reading your comments about your favorite songs from The Heist, and I wish …

“But why, why, why can't people just say what they mean?”

It's not that this blog is slowly turning into a book blog, it's just that my workdays are almost always crazy-busy these days that the little me-time I can spare has been dedicated almost entirely to reading. (My weekends are reserved for other personal projects/ pursuits and my friends, …

Freeway presents: Seascape & Tropical Swimwear 2014

I have started looking around for swimsuits in preparation for *crosses fingers* a couple of beach trips this summer, and these pieces from Freeway's Seascape and Tropical Swimwear collection became a quick favorite! I am looking forward to seeing them in person. I just hope I have the body to…

A beautiful mess: Krissy learns calligraphy

I am very passionate and willing to chase after things that bring me joy. Three of my favorite pleasures are writing, learning new things, and doing something with my hands, and when I found something that marries the three, then you bet I am more than willing to try it! I have been wanting to go …
