B for Bohemian

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! Christmas is the perfect time of the year. We get to receive and open gifts, lots of food and of course attend Christmas gatherings. This Christmas is quite different compared to the past Christmas'es that I've experienced because this time, it's my baby's first Christmas and good thing, I am still on leave that's why I got the chance to be with my family. Here's what I wore on Christmas day! Decided to wear something red but to no luck, I don't have any red clothes, so I tried wearing a dress whose color is near to red! 

Somewhat Bohemian on Christmas day! Good vibes! 

How was your Christmas? I'd be glad to hear your stories to share! =) Enjoy! Feliz Navidad

Just wanted to share this one, let's not lose our hope. Hold on... I am holding on even though I so wanted to give up.. Just a thought to consider.. =') 

When you’re exhausted, when all you have to count on is a weakened, weary faith, hold on. When you think you want to die, hold on until you recognise that it’s not death you seek, but for the pain to go away. Hold on, because this darkness will surely fade away. Hold on. Please hold on. - Tammie Byram Fowles, LISW, Ph.D

I’m sorry that you’re hurting so desperately right now. I know how painful the seconds, and minutes, and days can be, how long the nights are. I understand how very hard hanging on is, and how much courage it takes.

I ask though that you hold onto one day at a time. Just one day, and slowly this despair will pass. The feelings you fear you’re trapped in will serve their purpose, and then fade away. Difficult to imagine isn’t it? Almost impossible to believe when every cell in your body it seems cries out in agony, desperately in need of comfort. When it feels like the only thing in the whole world that can touch your pain and banish it is beyond your grasp. And after all this time, the assurance that you will heal has become an empty, broken promise.

Hold on because it’s worth the terrible waiting. Hold on because you are worthy. Hold on because the wisdom that will follow you out of this darkness will be a tremendous gift. Hold on because you have so much love and joy waiting to be experienced. Hold on because life is precious, even though it can bring terrible losses. Hold on because there is so much that you can’t now imagine waiting ahead on your journey - a destiny that only you can fulfill. Hold on although your exhausted and your grasp is shaky, and you want more than anything to let go sometimes, hold on even though. Please hold on.

And the light, the light at the end of the dark tunnel for so long cannot be seen, although eventually you’ll begin to feel its’ warmth as you move forward. And forward you must move in order to get through the hell of remembering, of despair, of rage, of grief. Keep looking forward please. Rest if you must, doubt your ability to survive the journey if you have to, but never let go of the guide ropes, although when you close your fingers around them, your hands feel empty, they are there. Please trust me, they are there.

Happy Christmas

Happy holidays everyone!! Hugs and kisses from my baby boy.. His first Christmas! =) HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORD JESUS!! WE LOVE YOU!

Give and it will come back to you

I may not personally know and met the people behind Blogger's United and I haven't met in person all the bloggers I followed but I'm doing this because I want to help the people who were greatly affected by a dreadful tragedy brought by Typhoon Sendong in Mindanao. My heart was crushed seeing the news report in television. So I want to reach out to all my followers, knocking your hearts to visit Moonleaf Tea branch in Maginhawa St. UP Village tomorrow to visit the pop-up bazaar organized in partnership with Bloggers United for the benefit of Sendong Relief Drive. We are still fortunate enough that it didn't happen to us but I would like to extend my deepest condolences to those families and fellow countrymen who have lost their loved ones. May their souls rest in peace. GOD BLESS all the souls and lives that were taken.

Let's share our blessings. And thank you for all those who have volunteered to help packing the relief goods, those who have donated already and those who are willing to donate as well. May GOD BLESS you all.

Christmas wish list

Christmas is just around the corner and I'm counting the days not because I'm excited for Christmas but because days after Christmas, I'll be going back to Manila and it's the end of my 60 days maternity leave. It means back to work and back to reality. Aside from the fact that it's the birth of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, it also excites me because I get to spend holidays with my family, unlike last year, I wasn't able to go home because of work. And now that I'm at my hometown, I'll make the most out of it.

Anyway, I was thinking of my Christmas wish list for myself. It's not that I want to buy them before the year ends but I'm also hoping someone would grant my Christmas list! (Dear Santa, I've been a good girl lately) LOL..

So here's my Christmas wish list: (any of those will do)

1. Nude pumps - I had few heels but I want to own a pair of nude pumps. Any of those will do, platforms or peep toe's would be fine.

2. Cambridge Satchels - Lately, I'm a sucker for satchels. Not only because they are colorful but because I find them very comfortable. The design itself is very neat and I could pair it with anything. Stylish and fun!

3. White Oxfords - Oxfords are epic. I love how classy it is and I always love the color white. I can easily pair it with any classy yet stylish outfits. Looking for a perfect pair and a perfect design.

4. A brand new cellular phone. Iphone4s, White Iphone 4, latest Blackberry (Curve or Bold) or Samsung Galaxy S2)

5. Ipad - I'm not really that techie but I find Ipad very convenient.

6. Digital Camera - I wanted to buy a new one because my camera almost gave up on me. It's still functional though 'coz it can still take pictures but somehow it will surely test my patience.

7. Rayban's Aviator - I once own an authentic yet classic Rayban aviator which I got it from my dad, but sad to say my brother lost it. Boo! So I would love to have this one again. It looks good on me. (#confident)

8. Shoes (Classic Vans or Low cut Converse black) - I admit, I am not a skater girl but I am eager to learn how to use skateboard. I own a hot pink low cut Converse shoes but my sister wants it so I gave it to her already.
 I accept Christmas gifts! I would love to have all of them but *sigh* it takes a lot of effort to own all of these. Just one step at a time. Dear Santa, may you touch the heart of the ones who would love to give this to me as their Christmas gift. =) May you blessed them! And thank you so much!! =) LOL
