I went to the hospital to pick up a few certificates the other day. Unfortunately, it wasn't easy to get a cab in that area so I had to walk a few blocks. On my way back, I found a new coffee place around the SBMA area, 4th block from the 1st gate car entrance. Sure there's Starbucks and Coffee Bean at Ayala Harbor Point but those places can get too crowded and most times, I just want to have coffee some place quiet.
The Portuguese owned coffee house started April of this year and they're open from 7:00am to 10:00pm.
They've all been screaming their hearts out "change is coming" since the election. They even made a bet if there's going to be a change at work too. I don't know about everyone else but I guess my work is about to. Yup, I "think" I'm up for a promotion by title but not by pay. I'm not sure if I like it considering all the things I've been planning ahead but I don't want to reject the idea since it's something that may help me improve.
I also don't think the others are gonna like it because I'm most certain they don't like me. They don't have to tell it to my face because they already told my boss without even talking to me. I remember when I was new, I was told by my boss that they got my back but in the end, it was just my boss and everyone else just turned their backs on me, even scolded me for asking. I don't know if it has changed but for now, I'm staying on the other side of that wall.
Here's another simple fruit inspired nail art designs for beginners. The technique is pretty much the same with that of the Cherry Nail Art I did before so I hope you'd find it as easy to recreate. You can do it on all nails or maybe for an accent nail. Below are the products I used which are all available in the Philippines. The brushes are from Klik which I also got form Watson's nail section. Alternatively, you may use paint brushes from National Bookstore, too.
Hello guys. Here's another fruit inspired nail art designs for beginners. The design may look complex but it's just a combination of a few dots and strokes.
So here's the thing, I was busy doing office work when someone said they wanted to buy some street food across the street. One of us asked if they could buy some for her. Of course they'd say yes because she's their boss. So I asked if they could buy some for me too but they refused and just told me to go with them. But since I'm busy and I didn't want to leave the office, I told them "never mind" and then kept my money. Then suddenly, nobody wants to go and they're telling me to call some girl to buy it instead. I said I don't have her number. They keep on insisting and I'm like "do what you want."
Like every average person, I have set my goals earlier this year but none of it have actually gone the way I have planned it. I didn't graduate because I didn't feel prepared enough to take the last exam to finish my course; the vacation I've been planning didn't even materialize; the house renovation is going beyond the budget; I'm not getting any healthier; It's been four months since I've lost my other source of income and I'm in so much financial debt but the urgent expenses just keep on coming in. But then, for some reason, I don't feel uncomfortable about my current status, which is very uncommon in my case, and that's what worries me.
I was just browsing by the bookstore when I found the last copy of this book on the top shelf. The reason, the book cover and title is catchy... Yes I know it seemed pretty shallow but that shallow judgment turned out satisfying.
And I'm back with a cherry inspired nail art design for beginners. It's simple and easy to make but really pretty, I actually got compliments from my co-workers about it. It took me some time though because there's a lot of waiting and drying to do since I'm layering several nail polishes.
I'm using a toothpick as my dotting tool. One end of it is pointed which is perfect to create the leaves and the other is rounded for dotting the cherries. If you can't find a striper brush, take one from your used up liquid eyeliners.
Towering by Alex Flinn is one out of five "Modern Fairy Tale Retelling" collection first published by Harper Teen in 2013. With the title, you can easily guess it's base on Rapunzel. I read a few reviews on google reads and at the average, it's rated 3.3. I had my doubts buying it but a hardbound copy was on sale for Php 199 at National Bookstore so I thought to give it a try.
I'm a sucker for good packaging it'll definitely get your attention from the bookshelf but that's just about it. It took me two weeks to finish reading it and I'm not busy. It's just not much of a page turner. In my opinion, it's trying to be too mysterious to the point that you have to read every boring detail of them claiming their love for each other so you could get to the "reveal" point, but when you get there, it's just another let down. The only thing I like about it are the few quotes I can relate to.
"Sometimes, people are more comfortable with sticking with what they know, even if it's bad, instead of taking a chance on something that would probably be better but might be worse."
I've been buying from Zalora for quite some time now but this is the first time I purchased from their in house brand.
Since the rainy season has started, I purchased an ankle length boots that I could walk with to work. It looks like leather but it's actually polyutherane, a type of plastic. Makes me feel a little less guilty walking it in puddle and mud.
The other item I got is a structured handbag made with the same material as that of the boots.
It comes with a free sling and the sides are adjustable so it can make more room for the rest of my things.
In my last transaction with Zalora, I had a bit of an issue with the shipping. My items were delayed for about a week and their customer service wasn't helpful at that time. Then recently I noticed that not all the items in their store are being shipped by Zalora which is something new. It became a marketplace so the seller themselves fulfill the shipment. Anyways, I'm really glad nothing of this sort happened this time. The shipment was fast that it only took exactly two days for my items to arrive.
Will I buy from their brand again? Of course and just in case you're buying, look carefully before check out whether Zalora will fulfill the shipment because I can't say the same for the other brands.
Hey there! I've been doing a little research for nail art designs for beginners and saw a lot of patterns, shapes and animal prints. It's been awhile since I did nail art plus my hands are a little shaky so it has to be freeform to look good. Anyways, here's my take on beginner's nail art and I hope you like it.
For the camouflage, I started with a beige color nail polish as base, I used Jocarste #36. Next, I dabbed the dark green color, B Basic in Central Park. Mine is blotchy but it'll look better if you swipe it horizontally. Lastly, add a brown color, Revlon in Inspire, to finish your camouflage. wait for it to dry completely before swiping your top coat or it might smudge.
