1st month of 2013

Hey Sweeties! It's already 2nd week of February but I guess it's not too late to sum-up how my JANUARY went well. 

To start with, here are some photos from our New Year's Day Celebration and Reunion at Pasig.


Meet my siblings, cousins and grandparents!

Parties are never complete without games, dancing and videoke around!

Peek-a-Boo! Meet our favorite baby cousin, Keith!

And say hello to my best cousin, Gem
We are the same age but she's taller, a lot taller! Huhu!

Cuties all over the place!

I guess, it's not too late to give Christmas presents especially when it comes from the heart. 

Another favorite cousin, Erice!

Happy Kiddo here!

After all the parties and celebrations during the holidays, here comes REALITY. Buhuhu. It's not that I don't want to go to work or I'm not ready, but I hate the fact that I have to wake up early everyday because it's hard to commute. My Dad hasn't given me the freedom yet to drive on my own. :(

Anyways, enough with the drama and let's say hello to first day of work for 2013! 

Time flies so fast and I can't believe that I've been working for 1 year already! YAY. I can still remember my first day and the feeling of anxiety and fear that I may not meet their expectations. But here I am, standing and proud of myself because I made it to 1 year. I wonder how long can I go further?

Got an email greeting from Chikka! ♥ 

Early that morning, me and Ivan spent time together and had our very first breakfast for this year.

On that very 1st week of 2013, I haven't kept my promise and New Year's resolution to stop myself from being an impulsive shopper. I think SALE is really my weakness. Hihi!

Just for share. Here are some brands that tempted me!  

My family decided to unwind and spend the 1st weekend of 2013 at Tagaytay. Here are some photos from our short vacation:

My sister, Chiz

I'm trying hard. LOL

We stayed at Chateau Royale!

Then, we went to Caleruega..

The scenery is beautiful and Caleruega is so nature-loving..

We're trying to be a professional climber without harness. LOL.

Then my siblings tried the ZipLine. Me? Got scared. :P
Next time, I WILL TRY. Promise :)

Lunch before we went home..

Another January Sunday -- Dad gave me the freedom to drive all the way to Laguna and you know what? That was my very first out-of-town driving. I'm glad and proud of myself because I drove my family home safely! YEEEY! Hihi! 

By the way, we went to Laguna to visit our relatives. Me and my cousin Gem spent time together like never before (the "TECHIE" kind of bonding). LOL

First two panoramic photos were taken via Mom's brand new iPhone 5!

Me and my cousin had an agreement to finish 2 eBooks per month since we became addicted with EPUBs, iBooks and the like. Well, me? sort of! I am not really a fan of reading but this time, since I'm not that busy anymore with school stuffs, I decided to enter the FUN WORLD of BOOKS. We agreed to finish these two books by the end of February.

I'm sure if you have a boyfriend like I do, you also love to go out with him and spend time like you've never seen each other everyday. In my case, since Ivan's office and mine are just streets away, we frequently dine, shop and stroll together. Here are some photos from our EVERYDATES this January.

Lastly, I wanna share some outfits I wore last January..

 (1) Pink Pullover: G2000 | Gray Denim Pants: Candie's | Pink Bow Slippers: Celine Memorata
(2) Lavender Buttoned-up Blouse: Candie's | Capri Denim Pants: Mudd | Pink Bow Slippers: Celine
(3) Blue Pullover: Terranova | Black Denim Pants: Candie's | Blue Studded Flats: Celine Memorata
(4) Black Studded Tee: Zara | Black Bow Rubber Flats: Melissa | Cream Tote Bag: Esprit

As you can see, I wear jeans a lot. Jeans are SUPER allowed in our workplace and I'm glad because it's the easiest thing to wear and most comfortable outfit you can put on to work. 

I also love wearing tees to work because they are a lot more comfy than any other corporate tops. But if there's a need for a more decent attire (meetings, etc.) I go for them as well.

(1) White Tee: Guess | Red Pants: Bazaar | Black Bow Rubber Flats: Melissa
(2) Blue Tee: 101 New York | Gray Denim Pants: Candie's | Navy Blue Sandals: Fitflop
(3) White Tee: Designer Monkey | Pink Pants: Redgirl | White Floral Sandals: Fitflop
(4) Pink Tee: Guess | Gray Denim Pants: Candie's | Pink Rubber Flats: Crocs
(5) Gray Collared Shirt: Jag Thug | Washed Denim Pants: Guess | Gray Flats (Slight): M. Nicole

Well, that's it! Sorry for the lengthy post! :P Hope you caught something inspiring from this post. Hihi! I'll be happy if you'll share some comments below! :) 

Happy weekend, everyone!
