34

Another year older.

Today I celebrated my 34th birthday without much fanfare. It is far from what I was accustomed to since I am used to month-long celebrations, but it doesn't mean I enjoyed it any less. I spent the day at home with my family, bonding over good food and great stories.

My Singapura Eleganza Photobook

I am turning 34 tomorrow in a couple of hours! Because of the enhanced community quarantine my original plans of spending my birthday weekend in Palawan to watch Survivor shoot in real life have been foregone and instead I will be holed up here at home with my family. Also ever since J and I becam…

#KrissyfiedBakes: Banana Bread

I believe in the value of celebrating even the smallest of wins, and today was a win for me! I finally got to try baking my very first banana bread, and it was a huge success with my family! 

It is moist, soft but not crumbly, and most importantly, it is delicious.

Getting ingredients is quite cha…

Review: Ellana Minerals Lip Drunk Blush

Working from home afforded me a little bit of extra time so I was able to dig drafts and stored photos, and I realized I haven't published my review of Ellana Minerals Lip Drunk Blush despite it being my go to-blush for a year now. I am posting quick reviews and swatches of the first five shade…

It's my birthmonth

I am a huge 'celebrate anything and everything girl' and I always hold month-long celebrations for my birthday, but I need to keep things low-key this year because of the pandemic.
J and I were supposed to go to El Nido to watch Survivor being taped there, but obviously that is out of the …

Checking in

Barring that time I was given a two-month break from work to stay home and heal after my myomectomy, I believe this is the longest I have been home. I am privileged to be part of a company that allows employees to work from home and even anticipated the need for it as we were able to do a dry run …

Valentine's Day 2020

I am made of glitter and cheese, and I LOVE celebrating love any chance I can get. I enjoy giving and receiving 'just because' gifts, and I get giddy for monthsaries, anniversaries, AND Valentine's Day. ♥

As much as possible, I like giving my beau handmade Valentine gifts, like the exp…

Wedding Thank You Cards by Basic Invite for those hearing Wedding Bells

I am not going to lie. I have a secret Wedding Pinterest board that I regularly pin stuff in for, you know, inspiration when he puts a ring on it. Also, aside from stationery and cool eye shadow looks, a great majority of photos I have saved on Instagram are composed of wedding dresses and themed …

[Not So] Little Miss Independent

Back in 2008, I made a huge decision that impacted my life in a huge way: I moved out. I did it mostly for practical reasons, as my work shift then started at 5 AM and I lived far away from the office, but I can honestly say it gave me far more benefits than the shorter commute time.
I learned to …
