peace, love, & lip gloss

Hello, 2019!

It is the third day of the year but unlike previous years, I did not pressure myself to start on a blog post straightaway but instead focused on taking a break. I am not able to take the restful break I longed for since I still need to work over the holidays, but I am extending my vacation by taking leaves from work until Friday. My work-year technically doesn't start until Monday, January 7, but of course there are work emails and messages that need to be attended to. Still, I'm glad for the chance to spend time with my family and loved ones. 

Official photos from our office Christmas party have been released and, well, here is a photo of myself displaying reckless abandon.


I don't really remember what I was laughing at, but I believe this was taken before the winner for Best Costume was announced. I didn't win, but my Night Sky costume is my favorite themed costume so far because I enjoyed conceptualizing the look and putting everything together.

Cheers to more can't-contain-myself, more-fun-than-I-can-handle moments this 2019!

I welcomed the new year with My Love, and for 2019 I wish we can have more dates and more opportunities to spend time together. My favorite moments are when we share our goals and brainstorm on how we can work on them together. He is my best friend and I enjoy getting the chance to know him more. 

There is value in writing things down, and every year I list down my goals here on the blog and on my journal. Most of them I was able to fulfill before the year ends, but some (like writing at least one short story) remain unsuccessful. It's quite disheartening, really, so I guess this year I will stick to one goal that will encompass everything I want to accomplish.

This year, I will be more mindful.

Mindful with my finances because I don't need that nth lipstick, thankyouverymuch, and because I really want to follow through with Krissyfied Makes.

Mindful with the products I use and their impact on the environment.

Mindful with my social media use. 
I intend to limit idle scrolling so I can be more productive.

Mindful with the media I consume.

Mindful with the words I use. 

Mindful with my relationships.

Mindful with work and hobbies.

Mindful with the way I spend my time.


Mindful with the way I live my life because I want to choose to live with purpose and intention.


✧・゚: *✧・゚:* Happy New Year, everyone! *:・゚✧*:・゚✧
May 2019 be bright and bold and colorful!
