5:00 am post

I love being in love and I love having someone who makes me smile everyday. But when he isn't around, and when I'm feeling a little under the weather, well, I stay up late and watch reruns of Will & Grace to cheer myself up. My favorite character from the show is Karen. She can't be any more awesome.

And so, I miss my darling boyfriend. That panda peeking behind me was a gift from him. No reason at all he just up and bought me a panda pillow. le sigh.

Music Monday #1

HELLO! ok, i realize it isn't Monday anymore, but i'm still wide awake and it's only a couple hours past midnight so I shall consider this to be a Monday post :)

I've been sick for the past three days and spent my Monday indoors sleeping and suffering from my worst headache yet. Though that didn't stop me from listening to music and taking pictures of myself. muahaha

For my first Music Monday entry, I decided to feature a local and one of my most favorite bands alive; Up Dharma Down.
I've said this before, but if there was a band I could marry, it would be Up Dharma Down ( <--- click for their tumblr account). Everything about them is just amazing and Armi, who happens to be the lead singer has an incredibly mesmerizing voice. I could listen to her all day. They've actually played in my city but I've only been able to catch them live on just one occasion. They also just recently played in Cagayan De Oro and my little brother and his friends drove (all 89 kilometers of road.) from Iligan to see them play. I would really like anybody who happens to stumble upon this post to check UDD out. You won't regret it.

A to Z

I've a feeling that i'll be neglecting this blog every now and then. I'm not quite as in love with it as I thought i'd be but i'm still hoping I can be able to blog full-time and enjoy it.

I can play guitar but not well and I am now playing around with a ukulele. I love the beachy tropical vibe it gives and it is super easy to learn.

lately i have been

Watching: A whole lot of funny stuff like Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Whitney, New Girl, Suburgatory...and errmmm stuff like NCIS (thanks to the boyf), Walking Dead and American Horror Story as well. I have so many questions about that last one right there. I don't even know where to begin.

 Can't get enough of Modern Family
AHS is just so bizarre. I'm hooked!!

Listening: Aloooot of Puscifer's new album "Conditions of My Parole". I am huge fan of Maynard James Keenan and everything he comes up with is just brilliant. I can't get the song "Man overboard" out of my head. No, really. And I am especially enjoying the title track..give it a listen why don't you. :)

Jack N Jills Tostillas Nacho Cheese flavored chips. It's alright I guess...not the most exciting snack.

Reading: Nothing actually. The last book I read was The Autobiography of Malcolm X and that was months ago. Unless you count graphic novels though. What am I saying!? Of course graphic novels count. haha I'm re-reading Terry Pratchett's Discworld and Neil "THE GOD" Gaiman's Sandman. My two utmost favorites!! My Sandman collection is in the form of an E-comic but i would really want a hard copy soon. I've been spending my dough on really girly stuff lately like makeup and tons of hair dye so I've sort of forsaken my lusting for certain Graphic Novels.

Sadly this graphic novel interest of mine is something that my boyfriend doesn't share with me. But it's okay, there's a bunch of other things that catches our Jimmy Carr! That dude knocks my socks off.

Spectacle Spree

So here I am, online shopping once again (it's almost a bad habit, i tell ya) and having the most difficult time figuring out which pair of eye glasses I want need more. An extra pair of specs is necessary since I lost my last emergency pair and I am just terrible at keeping my things together. So I'm getting my fickle self in order and sticking to one design that I really love. And since I can't get enough of the Cat's Eye, these two frames are just too perfect!! NOW. which one should i get? I can't afford both. *sniff*

I equally love them both!! It's so hard to chooose.

Oh! hello there! I've been so preoccupied this past week that I nearly forgot about this blog, and by preoccupied I mean hanging out with my boyfriend, sewing, and doing a lot of thinking, planning and drafting for my up coming business. I can't wait to be my own boss. Weeeee!! 

me after one beer. lol obviously, i'm a cheap drunk. i wasn't always like that :p

sorry for the lame-o post.

p.s. that vintage scarf behind me was my grandmothers and i'll always take care of it.

Garden Sale Day 1

My cousin, Celyn has been organizing garden sales lately and I've only managed to show up to this one. I didn't want to spend much since I bought a whole lot of arty supplies before checking out the sale and was only left with 200 pesos. haha.
But i made sure that I left the place with something..this really pretty elephant necklace! :)

I kept eyeing these bangles!! They cost around 800 pesos so i'm definitely going back for that tomorrow

Oh god. I left the house without makeup but photos need to be posted. This is the other bea, the one who never seems to run out of energy. You'll find her jumping around and chit chatting with just about anybody.

 Rows of blouses and dresses
Clothes! &lt;3

Do you spot the sparkly pair!?! Just another Item I was oogling at. haha

Books &amp; Magazines

He wasn't amused.

      Smokey Smoke (I've quit by the way. I now only smoke socially.) hah!

    Couldn't stand my puffy cheeks. I've been gaining a ton of weight lately and this photo has now urged 
me to go back on a diet. phew! Standing between the lovely celyn and kate.

The sale continues tomorrow on Nov. 13, 2011 (Sunday) from 9am to 7pm
just in case anybody stumbles upon this entry before then :))

Craving Shmaving

What a terrible time to be craving for Xiao Long Bao. Everyone was tweeting about making a wish on 11/11/11 at 11:11, and guess what I wished for? I already knew it wouldn't happen of course, but it was for xiao long bao to fall directly on to my lap, straight from the heavens.

                                    image source :

I can't stop thinking about it. I had to research my way through Google typing down "good xiaolongbao in cebu" apparently, people only know of one restaurant with XLB and it isn't even that good. Somebody please work on a teleportation device so I can "press button to teleport" my way to China and some yummy yummy XLB. To be clear, I've been thinking about XLB since 11 pm last night, and it is now 2:03 am. I HAD to improvise. What I ate was nothing like the food I was craving for but it shut my mind up (at least for now).

That's what i ended up with. Nutella and Jam filled Marshmallows. I a'int complaining though.

Hair Envy (hairspiration?)

I've been creeping on a bunch of random photos on the interweb-nets and just can't help but fall in love with the styles and shades and length of all the awesomeness that is HAIR. So this post is basically my hairstyle bucket list. I've already crossed out pink hair and maybe blonde pixie cut will soon follow...we shall seeee.
Black sidecut for when I decide to go back to my natural color.
Because black sidecuts seem more badass than blonde ones.

Pastel Colors. Nuff said. I'd describe myself to be cute and tough at the same time
(if that even is possible). You could be saying "they have a word for that, Bea.
It's called being BiPolar." Whatevs. Moving on.

And I mentioned this in my previous post, but I'm dying to have this blonde pixie cut.
I can tell that it's going to be one of those
"It seemed like a good idea at the time" kind of things.

PLUM hair. OH how I adore this color!! I don't quite remember how I cam across this photo but the back of this gorgeous head belongs to Sarah Gaugler (singer, model, tattoo artist) a local Philippine celebrity of sorts. I'm hoping I can get tattooed by her sometime soon.

That's about it for now. Tune in to see what i make of the hair that sits atop my noodle.

A Special Kind of Vain

I have been obsessing about my hair for the past week now and ever since the appearance of my roots, I've suspected that I've been grinding my teeth a lot more in my sleep. Yes, little things like that annoy me. Sooooo, I decided, instead of shelling out big bucks at a salon, to bleach my roots myself. It wasn't a totally bad decision, except that the rest of my hair is a lot more orange compared to my freshly bleached black roots. This could be because of the different brand of bleach that I used? Yeah. That could be it. Oh! And I'm not looking forward to what the people are going to say at the office tomorrow, coz they usually ask for explanations as to why you'd style your hair a certain way and what not. And frankly I'm just tired of saying "Because I felt like it." So tomorrow I will use the "My Religion demands it" reason.
This blog is starting to seem like a hair blog. uuuuh. Check it out. My pores are huuuuge. Sorry about that, and the unkept eyebrows. hihihi

I'm thinking of keeping the blonde for awhile before i dye my hair Pink again. I'm actually thinking of Agyness Deyn when I stay bleached blonde. But I don't think I can really pull her look off. wah. And also, the gentleman says that I look like a confused Asian. :-/

October at a Glance

So before I fall asleep, thought i'd share a few photos I took last month. I haven't been going out with my camera lately and have just failed to take more than my usual bajillion photos. There's been alot of snacking from what I can tell in this collage.

The first photo is a red velvet cupcake on my good friend, Rias' birthday. The last photo is me with a vanilla ice cream cupcake. goodbye diet. hello holiday weight.

And OMGBBQSAUCE!! my boyfriend is being adorable in the photos of him up there. le sigh.
