My boyfriend and I weren’t able to celebrate New Year’s Eve together, but we definitely spent a lot of time together after. We decided to take a stroll around Cubao. I’ve always loved Cubao during the holidays—the lights are so pretty and people look forward to the giant Christmas tree every year.


Although not very clean, Cubao will remain special to Chad and I. It’s where we met (again) a couple of years ago, plus it’s the only place near us where we can find shops that develop films.

Thanks to Lilet of ClickOnlineBoutique for the lovely dress and to Honey of Boutique de Reines for the pretty chain bracelet! 🙂


It finally sank in that 2013 has begun. I do not plan on wasting any time this year, and it kinda makes me scared. I’m at an age where every day is crucial to my success, where there’s no room for fooling around. I’ve got 12 months to make things start happening; it isn’t enough, but it’s the only time given.


I can only hope for the best.

Hype this look on
