This photo was taken 25 weeks ago at a subway train station (Buendia Station Manila Philippines).  It was taken a Sunday afternoon and I was on my way to work after church.  It symbolizes how fast time goes by and people important to us may come and go, temporarily or permanently.  But these people were all part of our journey in life and will never be forgotten, like characters to our own story.

Daily Prompt: Envelope Pushers

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Envelope Pushers.”

When was the last time you took a risk (big or small), and pushed your own boundaries — socially, professionally, or otherwise? Were you satisfied with the outcome?

Everyone takes a risk. Some people do not realize it but often times, they just did something that was way beyond their expectations.  Others may interpret their risk taking moments as confidence, trust, self-esteem and even faith.  I know that I am risk taker, small or big.  I was once asked, how can I cut and style my own hair without any experience in hairdressing.  The answer is simple, I once thought how would my hair look like if I did cut it the way I like.  Will it look good or bad?  These questions will be forever questions if I didn’t try, so I did. 🙂

The most recent risk I did was creating this blog.  I’ve always wanted to write, to share my thoughts, experiences, travels, food adventures and more.  So many question came in and all I know is if didn’t try, I wouldn’t be feeling wonderful right now sharing this moments with you. Getting to see people from different parts of the world appreciating and following my blog.

BDJ Box: Unboxing November 2014 – Sweet Shoppe (Benefit Exclusive)

Another FIRST for me! This is the 1st quarter of my BDJ Box subscription (October, November and December) and FIRST unboxing blog .  I was not able to post for October  unboxing since I just started the blog this month.  So I was so excited.  The reason I started to have monthly BDJ Box subscription is because I know that the little girls excitement is still within us. Receiving a box (sort of present) full of wonderful surprises. That happy feeling when you’re looking forward to receiving surprise every month. One of the BEST feeling ever!!!

This month’s box is a BENEFIT Exclusive (another 1st for me).  An early Christmas gift for me since I’ve always wanted to try BENEFIT Products. But having a sensitive skin makes it hard for me to buy different products, and this month’s items gave me an opportunity to try the product first without paying for the item’s full price and see if it would work for me then that’s when I’ll purchase the full sizes of the products I loved.

THE BOX AND PACKAGING:
