Serving you today’s look! šŸ‘„

In this picture you see me sporting a simple everyday look that can pass for date nights, provided you’re wearing a bold and/or colorful outfit.

The Dominican Republic is a nation in the Caribbean which prides itself on their beautiful beaches, getaway resorts, and most importantly, their culture. In order to fully immerse oneself in the vast and unique beauty of the Dominican Republic, however, it’s a good idea to try and experience the country just like a local would, and one easy way to do that is to stray from the typical hotel stays and instead book yourself your very own rental home. There are many homes for rent in the Dominican Republic, and some of the most beautiful and elegant vacation homes can be found at the Luxury Retreats website.

Once or twice in your life, you will have a partner who’s a musician. I’m not saying it’s bound to happen, but it often does. I never understood the hype with that (I’m soooo hooked on guys who are musically inclined!!! Ughh!!! Swoon! Heart eyes!) until I got myself a boyfriend who is… you guessed it, a musician. All throughout their gigs, I never missed an event but one. I also attend their practices/jams sometimes. If you don’t know how it feels to be a musician’s partner, I’m here to spill the beans – good and bad.

A week ago, Jec and I joined a Balangay Sunset Cruise at Roxas Boulevard. I almost didn’t go because I was feeling lazy at the last minute, but since we already made reservations, we still went. And I enjoyed it a lot! Motion sickness and phobias aside, it was refreshing to be away from the noise of Manila even for 2 hours. There were less than 20 of us in the Balangay, so it was pretty intimate. The boat could fit more people, but I guess they really intended to make the cruise for a close group of people. I’m not very good at describing my experiences and recalling all the little details, so I’ll borrow Jec’s words to make up for it.

For my second part of decluttering, I want to clarify that all this time I’ve been doing it wrong. For the entire time, I thought minimalism is about getting rid of things – which apparently is not. It’s making space for what’s important and valuable. It’s making more space for less. Although I can’t honestly say that I’m actually trying to have a minimalist lifestyle because… I’ve never been materialistic to begin with. So I guess I’m just decluttering my things while maintaining my already simple lifestyle.

One Monday, I was sitting on our bed, cherishing my beloved “off day” when I came across this video on Facebook. It was a quick documentary on this woman’s attempt to live like a minimalist for a week. I don’t know if it was experimental (for work, since she works at Buzzfeed) or it was her own initiative. Regardless, it struck a chord. 

I realized I could do the exact same thing. I could declutter (boy did I have LOTS of unnecessary stuff lying around), pick out the stuff I actually use, and donate the rest I don’t. In the video, they highlighted that living minimally doesn’t have to be extreme and it doesn’t have a set of rules. Do what applies to you. So I thought of a group of items I always have around but don’t use. 

I had answers in a matter of seconds. But I focused on this one: MAKEUP.
