As you may already know, I’m a biiig cat lover. I think it’s my spirit animal. Cats are free thinkers, independent, and loving—three qualities that I value a lot. I’ve been living independently from my family for two years now. I miss them a lot, but I feel more secure with myself when I don’t depend my life on anyone. None of my family supported my plan to leave Naga City, but I did it anyway and I never regretted my decision. I refused to live with my relatives in Manila, so I got an apartment with my friends instead. It’s difficult sometimes, you know, making ends meet, but the life I chose gives me more fulfillment, especially when I get to assist my family financially back home. I know in the end, things will become much better. Light at the end of the tunnel, remember?
Anyway, I got this kitty headband from a shop called Yhansy. I was a bit disappointed when the shop wasn’t giving me the tracking number of the shipment and that it took the courier 10 days to deliver it to my house. Nevertheless, all the bad vibes disappeared when I saw how adorable the headband was.
Paired it with my kitty shirt which I bought at a bazaar in Farmer’s Market, Cubao. I bought two colors actually (which I will show soon), but I opted for this one to match my skirt…
…which I also bought at Fashion de Lite ukay-ukay (thrift shop) in Cubao. It only cost me Php 50! Look at those distressed leather and velvet panels… lovely, aren’t they? 😀
And these pair of cute ballet flats were only bought for around Php 200. SM Department Store was on sale last week. I wasn’t supposed to buy anything fancy, but Chad and I passed by racks of pretty shoes with a sign saying ‘buy any two for 399.75’. WHO COULD RESIST THAT, REALLY? So I bought these heart-y flats along with a dark green pair. 😛

Here’s a a wonderful I Found a Reason cover by Cat Power. You might remember this song from V for Vendetta. I love that film.
