Sexy leaves

         Imagine a simple outfit turned into something fab by just wearing this bronze plated leaves around your neck! Thinking of using it in FALL...Unfortunately, we don`t have it here...Oh I mean the season!  :(

    I started with this sketch  

        In every endeavor, the most unforgettable is the first step...The moment you tried and you found out you can!  So you go on, you keep on trying and you never take that feeling of bliss for granted.  You take it as an approval from the heavens that what you chose is truly your fate...

    Heavens and fate attended this debut!  No need to hear them clap! I feel their`s enough.


  Fate, Chance, God`s will-we all try to account for our lives somehow.
What are the chances that two raindrops, flung from from
the heavens, will merge on the window pane? Gotta be fate.

L♥ve begets Excellence!

             I`ve always been inspired by many successful people. A mix of personalities and traits but  share a common piece... all of them L♥VE whatever they do!
     That  very love is the reason why these people create excellence. They shine to lighten up even the darkest corners of the world and left others to wonder where  all these Inspiration and Hope came from. Those who ask don`t have the slightest idea that all of these originate from something so hidden yet we know exists...the HE♥RT with a God!
    I`ll be starting the search today  using my heart as a compass. I come :)

To see victory 
only when it is within the ken of the common herd
is not the acme of excellence. 
                                                Sun Tzu 

Let`s celebrate with this strawberry spread.:9

Vogue has ANNA!

   This is entitled "The Business of Being Anna". Hope could grab a copy    
      of this :)

The Courage to Create

            Deciding on which path to take is easy when a friend is there to support you. Sometimes, it is much easier when you walk on the same road :)
      Met a friend I`ll be thankful for the rest of my life.  He is an artist, educator and my mentor :) He never fails to inspire me to make calculated risks, accept change even when it`s uncomfortable... and forgive myself after a wrong decision.  
      Sometimes I think I`m not enough for my dreams but he gets out of his way to tell me that I am... 
      Thank you Sir Vic for being a brother, a friend, and a mentor...
Your boldness in following your dreams gave me courage to follow mine.

Forget about diets!

Tempting...Wanna eat a slice!

Bridge of Memories


I`m thinking that only if we could just leave memories like that...go to a new place and start on a clean slate,this world will definitely be a happier place. No need to face nightmares of our pasts, to ease the pinch of a broken heart or cry till our eyes run dry. No energies will be wasted on the sad stories of our lives. But we should expect happy moments will be lost too! Are you willing to do that? No thanks!

If that`s the case, I can stand the bad...Sunny thoughts are crowding my mind :)

The Karl of Chanel

     An Inspiration to start my day! 


à la voile! (Let`s sail!)

    Just watched The Life of  Charlie St. Cloud and the Message in the Bottle again.  Everything`s about the water. I`m into deciding  whether to stay safe in the shore or taking my boat in the calm but unpredictable waters. I`m taking the hints... Is this the time?  :/ 
       There`ll maybe storm in the lands but I have a roof to protect me...I can stay in my room while the world pours all its` tons of tears on all of us.  My scented candle is enough to light a cold and dark room, no wind to put it out and my blanket is surely be there to warm the long lonely night. But it will be  just another ordinary mind-numbing day...
       Now, the very moment I think about the unknown deep waters, I feel afraid. (°ロ°)Yet I know that  its` roar that sickens me  is enough to cast away the bad memories that I have. I have the idea that it will make me a skillful sailor but will all those things worthy enough that  I have to risk even my own  life? The boat is never that reliable, it does not have a stable foundation...even the sail and anchor is dependent on the storm.  I can never  live with that! My formula, experiences, and lessons  are somehow unequal to the needs of the moment. It`s either I live with it or leave it !
     It`s true that I`m scared to lose. I`m apprehensive to go back home (if I still have the chance and that`s another question!) and  simply say I`m not made for the rough seas.   I don`t know if I could put up with the strong rain in the middle of the turbulent waves.   I never wanted a roller-coaster  kind of life.  I lve  to plan... I always  hunger for motivation and definitely need to  implement. That`s me and I want to believe I`m made for that. So it goes like this; I have this plans...sure!  I have read books on implementation...But now what? I get motivations now and then from various  people who have their own stories to tell. The truth is it`s different when you get the motivation from yourself!!! 
     It`s not wrong to protect the life we are given but it`s not right to deprive that life from its full potential. If it means taking risks  just to grow,  I guess it`s enough reason. 
     You are your source of fire...dreams are burning inside you. So start that voyage and make that  warmth enough to last the cold  night  amidst  the angry tides. You need to bring wood to keep that spark alive. If you realize that the timber is wet and  may even need to tear a part of your sail to wipe it, go ahead! No need to worry for everything has a purpose.  The sail will never be that helpful in the unbearable weather anyway! The gust of wind on the sail can cause the boat to change course. What is most important is to keep that DREAM ablaze. It  will drive you to  conquer the worst situation Live...and most of all to reach that destination!
Let`s pack our bags and Sail! ♥Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ


He is the best sailor  who can steer within the fewest points of the wind, and  exact a motive power  out  of  the greatest obstacles.

Moment of Epiphany!

   I`m honoring my hunches of writing a blog! I am accepting who I am...a writer in my own right :) My words were kept inside my head, in my dusty diary or when brave enough sometimes, in the letters I send to those special to me. Having this special nook for myself now, my wish is to be one with my authentic self :) A place where I can truly be me...
   World can be mean most of the time. We are being judged of what they expect us to be. In this part of my world, I will be flying my kite one will tell me when to let go or to hold on. I`ll be in charge of my own story with my God. 
   As I take this first step of my journey, I hope I can take you along as I discover the world through my senses. I maybe using imperfect words but I believe that the heart has a language the head can`t decode.
  I`m excited to travel on this winding or sometimes under construction road of life (preferred the less traveled ones). It`s the first time I don`t have a map and tell you, this time, I`m not scared!!! ;P
