A little gratitude list

28 November 2022

Instead of finishing the year strong, why don't we finish the year soft? Why don't we finish the year restful and grateful for making it through yet another crazy cycle on Earth?

I don't even know if people still read blogs nowadays, but as I have always maintained, I am writing for me, for something to look back to in the future, for something to make me smile at the good old days. I saw this quote as I was doom-scrolling the other day and it got me thinking that I haven't updated this blog in a while, and what could be a nice way to say hi than to list down some things I am grateful for? 

I am grateful for pretty little things and the purchasing power to buy them with.

Yes, it may sound shallow and materialistic, but it feels nice to reward myself after working hard. It's been a while since I got myself nice things, and these NARS makeup products feel like the perfect year-ender reward.

I got myself NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in Starwoman, NARS Audacious Lipstick in Rita, and NARS Mini Blush in Orgasm

The POWER that a great red lipstick can wield. Intoxicating.
This is NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in Starwoman.

I am grateful for supportive workmates and an excellent go-getter team.

Clozette PH Heads

Clozette PH Campaigns team

Work gets stressful at times but I couldn't ask for a better team to handle it with. I couldn't be more proud.

I am grateful that our Networking Night went smoothly and everyone had a great time.

Me with queens Maxie, Eva Le Queen, and Turing

The way I audibly gasped the first time I saw Eva Le Queen. STUNNINGGG.

I ordered shoes AND backup shoes for the party but they both arrived on the day of the event after I had already left the house. J went to the party and brought my shoes so I was able to wear the cutest monochromatic pink outfit I envisioned. :)

Clozette's Drag, Dinner, and Drinks held at Clubhouse MNL set the standard and I am sure we''ll be talking about it in the years to come.

I am grateful for quiet moments.

Lunch at Your Local

Coffee at Yardstick

I guess it comes with age? Whereas before I used to seek adventure, nowadays I am perfectly happy to sit for a nice meal and coffee with people I love. Last Saturday I found out that Yardstick Coffee in Esteban Street, Makati is closing so J and I made a day out of it. We ate out at Your Local with his Mom and had a last coffee at Yardstick.

I am grateful for home.

Sometimes, home is a person.

I am grateful for those who cast light.
