Finding Balance


Traveling helps me find my balance but doing it often gives me the opposite effect. 

Have you ever felt that too? Or have you ever felt more at home in a land not your own and feel lost in your own city? Do you just find your self in the middle of life endlessly finding your way back, back to You – Your own happiness? 

If there is something I learned this week,  that is we create our own happines and in order to find our center – we need to be true to ourselves, and in order to keep that balance – we just need to keep on moving. 

It’s a hard, hard life but we can train ourselves to be tougher. 

… and P.S. – let’s stop comparing ourselves to others – I have to remind my self that all the time now.

The City and Me

“… under the bridge and the city is up there. “

I always wear black – I don’t know if it’s because of it’s versatility and classiness or it just simply matches my soul…. 

Not that I am a bad person or something – it is because I am like a city at night. Dark, bold… Sparkling.

Weekends be like…

….White top, denim shorts and comfy shoes!

I work as a Real Estate Sales Coordinator  slash Property Consultant and I have been in Sales  for six years now so my normal day to day outfit ranges from business to smart casual. Five of those six years I wore heels, blazers and dresses. The rest, I have to look professional  yet very stylish. 

Weekends (or whenever is my day off) is usually  a window of opportunity to wear  anything comfortable and casual.  Who doesn’t? If you have been following my Vlog – I mentioned that in my early twenties, I am obsessed with heels. I usually wear stilettos to make melook slimmer   and of course, taller. But maybe also because of age, my best friends now are sneakers and ballet flats! 

So last Sunday I wore a white top and paired it with denim shorts. I was choosing between my orange ballet flats or sneakers. In the end the sneakers from Nike won.

Besides it’s the weekend, after a week of working so hard – I now owe it to my self to feel (very) comfortable! If only I can wear the same outfit everyday, I will… 💟

La Vie Parisienne, Cebu

 

When a blogger is in Cebu City, he or she should not skip La Vie Parisienne.

La Vie Parisienne is a chic Parisian themed cafe by day and  a hip lounge and bistro by night.

When I was in Cebu City to attend my friend’s wedding, my dear bride friend who is a Cebuana – specifically mentioned to visit this place, since it’s the new “it place” in town.

As for me, I wasn’t there to take any glamorous #ootd. We just dropped by so as not to miss this new “it place” since we don’t know when are we coming back again. We had some french macaroons, a glass of Cabernet each and then off we go to catch our flight back to Manila.

If I were you, stay a little longer and sip a little more wine. Wait until the sun sets and enjoy some  Cebuano vibe. ❤️
