When Jong and Chad taught me how to surf last year, we found out I was goofy-footed, meaning I use my right foot in front of the left when riding a board. Quite ironic, I thought, as the word is a complete opposite of my personality, according to many.

People think of me as a very serious person, even Chad before we dated. And I guess to a certain point, I am, but I can be really goofy when I’m really comfortable with the people I’m with.

I’m not afraid to look ugly as well. Hello, gummy face! Hahaha. A friend of mine calls me gummybears because I’d smile so wide my gums would always show. LOL. I like smiling, what can I do? I think it’s pointless to smile and act happy if you’re not genuinely happy.

And speaking of happiness, I was so excited when I saw these distressed studded high-waisted shorts and spike bracelet from Boutique De Reines in the mail last week. I knew they’d be perfect for my Baler beach trip with Chad. Of course, you’ll get the first dibsβ€”I will be posting more photos of our trip here soon. πŸ™‚

I love high-waisted shorts because they help emphasize the curves of my body. I gained a lot of weight recently, which went straight to my derriereΒ  and thighs. My waist remained relatively small, so I knew these shorts are perfect for my body type. πŸ™‚

Wore the spike bracelet with it for some added zest.
