When all else fails, wear something cute.

16 October 2014

You'll never know just how precious five minutes can be, until you've had to press the snooze button on a cold, rainy, dreary morning. Truth.

Have you ever had one of those days when you just want to stay in bed and not deal with work, or hellish Manila traffic, or any other adult responsibilities? I'm sure you have. Welcome to the daily struggles of a yuppie.

Yesterday I was feeling so sleepy, tired, and grumpy for feeling sleepy and tired that I was on the verge of cursing my alarm clock. I wished I can skip work but I don't have the gall to do that especially when we're all busy planning for various events and press launches for our clients. I'm a functioning twenty-something adult and even though I can't do long division and other complicated math problems in my mind, I do know I should be responsible.

My solution for when days like this strike? I wear something cute.

My "I'm too lazy to go to work so I'll just wear something cute" outfit
Yes, I find motivation from dressing up,

Purple hair + purple lips
JuRo Salon Exclusif hair and Wet 'n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Ravin' Raisin on my lips
... and a killer lipstick,

... and killer heels, of course.

What are your foolproof ways to motivate yourself to face the day? I'd really like to know! Let's trade secrets! ♥


  1. I believe in this too! If you're not feeling too hot, wear something hot! Or cute. If you're looking good on the outside, sometimes it makes you feel good on the inside as well. ;)

    Love the look, by the way. That skirt!!

  2. Thanks, Leah! I've had this skirt for years but it was only my second time to wear it. :D It's the skirt I wore for my Black Swan-inspired outfit for my former office's annual party. :D


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