Random Rant: Being on the late 20's, On getting married, Raising a Family, Being Single, LDR, Random Talk :)

I love the holiday season. It gives me so much time to ponder. By the way, today is 25 December 2011. I want to greet everyone a

Anyways, I want to blog about random stuff. Thoughts and sentiments that I want to share with you guys. Here it goes! Hahaha :))

All of you know that I'm already in my late 20's. I'm turning 27 next September. To tell you honestly, I look better as I age. Conceited as it may sound but it's true. I've been looking at my pictures from before and after. I look so ugly when I was younger. I was so fat and ugly. hahahahha :)) The hell with norms of beauty right? In God's eyes, everyone is beautiful but to everyone's eyes, there's a defining norm of beauty but I do not care. For as long as I'm doing a good job and I haven't done something wrong then I'm fine. 

For comparison's sake, this was me back in college. Six years ago. Hahaha :)) OMG! I'm soooo fat here! Hahahahaha :))) 

But, look at me now, I'm soooo fabulous, hahahaha :)) this picture below was taken May of this year. See? I'm like wine. Wine tastes better as the age. So am I...HAHAHAHA :O))

Next random stuff: On the topic of getting married.

Yeah, I know...most of my peers are already getting married. Me? I don't even have a boyfriend. For all those who know me personally, you all know my story. Hahahaha :)) Honestly speaking and it comes from the heart, friends, thank you for all your concerns. I am not worried that I am single. It brings me to laughter sometimes that my family is more stressed about my love life than me. HAHAHAHA :)))))  I do not know why my friends and my family are bothered on to why I do not have a boyfriend. When it comes, it comes. My love life is just plain messy. That's all there is to it.

Marriage is just a contract. Written documents to prove to everyone that you're married. I don't even want to be married here in the Philippines. I want to be married in a place where divorce is legal. LOL :)) I'm serious with that by the way. Hahaha :)) 

I think, I don't need to prove to 200 people that I love the person I'm going to marry. Marriage is a big cultural thing here in the Philippines. Either way, I think, I won't have that much people to invite when I get married. As much as possible I want it 50 persons or less. That's it. Only the special people in my life will witness this event! hahahaha :)) 

On Raising a Family

I think, the problem that I see with most couples getting married is that they do not see the bigger picture. Why do you get married in the first place? All they care about is the wedding day and the enormous amount they need to make to spend and burn on that one day. I'd rather prepare for the future than waste lots of money on one day. I told my ex, 'I want to have lots of babies if ever we get married'. He said 'that would be expensive'. I just told him 'that's why we have to earn lots of money for our future'. 

I want to have a big family. Lots of kids. I want 5 kids at least. I told him, 2 kids would be boring. He agreed with me. Having a baby, I think is the most wonderful thing in the world. I remember him saying and I have to bold this part because this is the sweetest thing

our conversation went: I said "Don't you like that? When we're at home, then we'll see our kids running around and wrecking all our furnitures. Hahaha :))" He goes

"Yeah, I'll look at our kids and say 'hey, that's half of me and half of you running in the living room'." 

The time I heard him say that I was like 'oh shit, can we elope right now cuz I want u to be the daddy of my babies?' hahaha :))) but you all know the story. we ended up breaking. lol :)) that leads to the LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP thing

Being Single and LDR 

When it comes to being single and having a long distance relationship. I think I can write a book on that already. I'm the expert! hahaha :)) Crazy as it may sound but I will tell you that it works. Case-to-case basis that is. When you look at the bigger picture, people are amazed with the fact that I was in a long distance relationship. It's something new to them but in the other countries, specially in the U.S. where there are lots of military families. It's nothing new. I cannot explain it per se because you have to experience it yourself before you judge people. That's why I salute all those who are in a Long Distance Relationship. Only a few can stay strong and committed. 

As for me, I'm single and happy. I'm ending 2011 as a singleton. Not at all worried that I'm turning a year old single again. All I can say is that if you're happy, then clap your hands! hahahaha :))) 

Happy Holidays!!!

Product Review: Nail Pads!! An alternative to smelly acetone :)

I got my 2nd to the last package for the year yesterday and I bought the L.A. Colors Nail Polish Remover. Pretty neat huh? LOL :) I'm actually new to this because here in Manila, all we have are the old school acetone removers. Anyways...This product is soooo cool!!

I bought all the scents. I used the Lemon Scented pad. The first time I opened my package, my box smelled heavenly. Aside from the fact that all packages from the States smells awesome, the pads added the oh-so-good smell. 

It comes in Lemon, Grape, Peach, Papaya, Strawberry, and Pear. Pretty cool packaging too. It has 32 pads. Not bad of a deal. If your nail polish color is dark, you may need to use 2-3 pads to clean all 10 finger nails but if your polish is light, 1 pad can do all 10. 

Here is the video of the actual testing. I did this a couple of minutes ago. Haha :) Enjoy!

What I love love love love about this product is that when you use it, it does not dry up your nails. Remember that bad thing acetone removers do to your nails when you clean them? It gives you that white yuccky dry finish. I'm looking at my nails now and it really looks good. Hahaha :)) I'm in love with this product. It's worth all the money I paid for it.

Goop the goop: Kor Water

Ever heard of the Goop Jug? Hahaha :)) This is the jug used by Hollywood Celebrities like Oprah, David Beckham, etc. I never really knew that it was called a goop jug. I first saw this one when I watched Iron Man 2. This was the jug used by Tony Starks...the one with the Goop. Hahahaha :))

What I love about this jug is the design. It is made to last for quite sometime. It does not break easily. It also has cute Kor Stones. Paper labels to remind you how wonderful life is. Anyways, I was supposed to buy the KOR One but I bought the KOR Delta instead.

Busy Bee Mode

I've been pretty much MIA the past few days because of the tight schedules. It's almost Christmas. Everyone is busy completing their Christmas Shopping lists. You all know that me and my sisters planned to join Christmas Bazaars right? Aaaahhh....the horror of :))

Anyways, to update everyone....I'm busy with work. I don't even get to go out to the mall anymore to shop. BOO!! I'm busy being a teacher and I'm busy being a business woman. LOL :)) Yeah...Christmas is panic time for everyone. Special me...I don't even know how to manage my time wisely. I have tons of narratives to finish for school. I still have inventories to fix for our business. I don't even have the time to fix my messy hair :(

We received our kit for the Dear Santa Bazaar. We got complimentary tickets to give away :)

If you want the tickets, just message me at my twitter account and I'll get back to you as soon as I can :) It's one of the most promoted bazaars in the metro. I'm definitely blessed to be a part of this event. Me and my sister would be there from December 2-4, 2011 at the Ortigas Megatent (Beside Renaissance Condominium, along Meralco Avenue). I won't be there though on Friday morning. I have my teacher duties to tend to. Haha :D but I'll be there come evening time. 

We all hope to meet and greet everyone on those dates. See you all and Happy Holidays :)

BHCosmetics Haul

I'm definitely addicted to makeup and my hauls are unending. Retail Therapy is cheaper than hiring a counselor. DEFINITELY! LOL :D

Anyways...I bought makeup brushes and palettes from BH Cosmetics. BH Cosmetics is similar to Coastal Scents, just that BH Cosmetics is cheaper than Coastal Scents. I'm not sure. It's just my opinion. 

I bought the 88 Color Palette Standard Shimmer Eye shadow and I'm satisfied. It's quite pigmented. I love the fact that I don't need to use a primer to enhance the color of the shadow.

I also bought the 6 color palette contour and blush. I love love love this palette. A definite must have for me. I love the pink blush. The first time I used it, I thought it won't look good on me. I usually wear tan-ish color because the color enhances my skin tone. I'll do a FOTD and use the pink blush in the coming entries.

New Girl, I'm addicted to this...I confess

Yeah, ever since I saw a preview on iTunes, I got completely hooked. Zoey Deschanel has this charm that makes me compelled. LOL. Anyhoot...

I love her new series. I can relate to her character. Jess, the teacher, dumped by her boyfriend...awkward and unusual. Oooooohhh, that kinda describes me...LOL :))

this episode was hilarious and heart-warming at the same time
I just love the series to bits. I haven't seen all the episodes yet but I'm looking forward to have a marathon on the coming Christmas vacation :) Yaaayy!

Random ranting: Everything I Miss...

Since it's November 1 tomorrow, I'm getting all emotional again. Don't blame me, blame my hormones. It's the PMS-ing.

I'll just post pictures of the stuff or people I miss. I just miss them. I don't need to expound on that.

I miss my panget friends

...dancing and being drunk

...drunk karaoke nights, ahahha (that's jonah and mark by the way, lol)

....clubbing and dancing

...drinking and acting retard because of alcohol

.....being fun-crazy with the people you love

...dancing and drinking with girlfriends to forget all the boys who broke my heart

...receiving text messages from a special boy who made you cry but you still love them no matter what but boys are boys and they would forever be jerks...LOL having to talk to that someone, makes my day better even if the day sucked. even if it was just an hour. I would feel so much better. attacking that person with arguments, even if he didn't do anything wrong just because you miss him so much. 
...lastly, missing that one person who's been like an angel. oh, wait. queen bitch by the way, lol. funny how many bad eggs we have together. weighing the good from the bad, there's a lot of bad eggs in the basket. He's that boy who made me cry a million times but until now, he's the last man standing. I'm civil with him and that's the wonder of it. LOL :)) Bitch, I think you're my twin, hahaha :)) It's like the moment we we're born, our intestines were intertwined like sausages. I've always wondered where you are, how you are doing, if you're still alive but I know you are. You're that swagger bitch. I really believe he's my soulmate. Soul mates don't necessarily end up together but I'm happy that in this lifetime, I met you.

Long Weekend...Do I have that?

My life is a beautiful chaos. Sobrang dami kong inaasikaso ngayon. I thought this semestral break from school was a vacation but NOOOO.

So, what have I been doing? I've been doing all the dirty work for my sisters. LOL. As you all know, my sisters have their own businesses. They've already established their own brands.

like this one, my sister was in the afternoon talk show of Lucy Gomez

another shoot in our living room for Kabuhayang Swak na Swak

My other sister, the one from SD, she made this for the Biggest Loser

and then my other sister made the souvenir for Raiza Cenon's Birthday

 Since I am the baby (literally and figuratively speaking), I'm doing all the nasty paper works. I've been contacting event organizers for Christmas Bazaars and I'm doing all the reading. I'm such an angel.

the things that I've been reviewing for the past days

Honestly, this is loads of shit. Tons of work to do. Thank God I don't have work at the moment. I could be crying blood if I was. LOL. What I hate about this is that they're not reading the materials. FINE! Ako na martyr...
