Because most girls wish to have a brother

I’m glad that I have mine! 🙂

Today was my flight from Cebu to Pagadian (my hometown) and my mom and I weren’t really expecting for my brother to be home until the 20th.
Turns out he wanted to surprise us by arriving a day before we do.

Having a 9yr gap with a sibling is hard because one of you gets really matured and your priorities change as you grow old. And now that he’s already settled in Manila with his lovely girlfriend, we seldom see each other anymore. Not unless I visit him during term breaks. He’s never visited me in Cebu :p

Anyway, I can never tell you when exactly was the last time we fought. or have really fought? haha He knows me very well and even spoils me more than my parents. He’s more protective compared to my dad.

So! surprise number 2. He leaves a bohemian bag on my bed…

..and makes up for the missed parties and birthdays and gatherings
Of course family is still the only treasure that we can’t buy. But like I said, he likes to spoil me 😉

I love you brothaaaaaa!! I know you can’t read this because you’re too cool to read blogs you’d rather listen to Chester covering Rolling in the Deep. But who knows? you might be able to consider reading my blog and you’d know how much of a cheeseball I am. HAHA ❤

London Evening Standard: Royal Wedding Souvenir Edition

My aunt who’s in London slipped a copy of London Evening Standard into the package that she sent to my mom.
I know.. the news is so old.. the royal couple might be even on the stage of having a baby already. But I haven’t been actually following their love story in every bit of detail so I took an afternoon to see exclusive photos and a better narrated story of the world’s most famous couple.

Loved Kate’s antique lace gown from Alexander McQueen but I really thought it was a Monique Lhuiller design.

I’ve seen that part on tv. When Prince William mouthed “You look beautiful” to Kate. Awwwwwwweeee what a bliss ❤

Gaaaah. Who wouldn’t notice the Beckhams in sober hues of dark gray and navy? Bigger hats, Victoria with bigger heels, and David in morning suit with crocodile braces.

I love these sissies Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice in their Valentino Couture. When this was aired on tv, the beckies kept on saying “Ikaw na girl” referring to Beatrice’s hat. HAHA

Carole Middleton is so, soooo preetty. That’s the Queen beside her, both wearing broad smiles haha (okay, I gotta stop typing HAHA everytime I finish my caption… HAHA.. HAHA)

Wedding Photographer arrives by bike 😀

Official royal photographer Hugo Burnand and his team take to two wheels to get through the crowds to Burkingham Palace.

The newspaper is actually thick and I’m only featuring the parts that I liked like this one.
Column says “Dress Sense” where you compare with royal gowns of the past 40 years 🙂

OKAY. buckle up your seats because this is a pre-relationship photo. haha
the dress that made Prince William see his “hot” friend Kate in a new light.
NOT my kind of body though.. but she IS pretty 🙂

owwright. That’ll be the last photo. I wanted to share to you the party pics and all during their college days but I’m only using my phone’s camera and well… you know the quality of phone pics.

I hope you enjoyed my post! I know I did 🙂 got me kilig all over again. HEEEEEEEEEEE :3
Will have to wait for MY prince to come because I believe that there is a happy ending 🙂 After all, happiness always depends on YOU.

BISOUS.

We found love on double K’s birthday bash

November 19 was one of those times where me and my girlfriends step on the borderline and run free. That day, we celebrated the birthday of my lovey, Katherine Chua.

So why is my title “DOUBLE K’s birthday bash”?
Kat decided to celebrate it with one of her closest college friends, Kim Arcenas.

The invitation was at 9:30 pm, Apartelle de Arcenas.
My friends Garey and Karen (seen in the picture above) and I went to pick up Essa since she wasn’t able to wake up from duty/school. We were actually running late coz she still had her make-up done but we didn’t actually worry coz we all know the “Filipino time” 🙂

Taahdaaah! We arrived at the venue without getting lost 😉

Err.. yeah we were actually late but just in time for the celebrators to blow their candles 🙂
Look at them with their matching Forever 21 dresses ❤

After blowing the candles, they went to each table to have pics taken with everyone 🙂

more piccies! 🙂

Gel-o vodka shots in different colors 🙂

OUTFIT POSTS:

Garey 🙂 follow her on twitter since she doesn’t have a blog: @Garey_me

Karen. 🙂

styleswagger, Essa 🙂

Yours truly 🙂
as you can see, I was the only one who did not wear a bandage skirt and I had the SHORTEST heels haha. But it does not matter coz after we took these photos we changed our shoes to flats 🙂

Thank you so much Kim and Kat for the wonderful and memorable party! We all know that we found love in a hopeless place that night ❤
That song got stuck in my head for a week haha.

A month’s delayed post about Halloween :)

It’s been such a craazy, craaaaaaaazy month! Relatives coming home from abroad, birthdays, me becoming an adult, and a lot more happened last November. But of course I’m gonna have to start with the Halloween 🙂

My cousins and I have been planning to throw a private Halloween party at our Cebu apartment since this is all our first time to spend it outside the province.

And so.. the plan was pushed through! 🙂
since the oldies were at home in Mindanao, everything in this party was out of labor of love.
We decorated the house, baked cupcakes, cooked pizza (even the dough was made from the scratch by my cousin), mixed drinks, and did the after care 🙂
We even wore costumes to make it extra special 🙂
and closest friends came over to celebrate with le famille.

About my costume, I have always wanted to try to be a pussycat and my inspiration is no other than Martine Cajucom. I had a problem finding cat’s ears coz I really wanted the ears that Martine wore. But I’ve no luck to find those and so my cousin did a DIY for me 🙂

Even my tail was a disaster 😦 I only used a black belt for the sake of it HAHA

Wasn’t able to take a pic of the table with all the food because we were so hungry and the pizza is getting cold.

Me with Incredible lizard.. I mean HULK haha

With Amy Whinehouse and Jason slash Jabbawockee

The night went on perfectly and (miraculously) early so when we woke up, it was All Souls Day and my cousins and I went to Sto. Nino Cathedral to pray and light candles for our deceased loved ones– all buried in Mindanao.

After the Halloween, I already embraced the fact that November is my birth month 😉

The Epitome of a Chic

Hello to my readers! (that is, if I have any haha) I gotta admit that for 2 months I kind of neglected this blog because I was so uninspired and several things has happened to me.
From flunking, to shifting on my LAST sem, heartbreaks, and other life’s challenges, here I am standing still after all the let downs.

But I am so back! and I can’t wait to share all of the random stuff I prepared for this online diary that I have. I hope you guys keep posted.

Bisous,
NICA
