Everything Looks Better with Pictures Part 1

Oh yes, I am sporting a new theme to the tune of Patchwork by Caroline Moore. Isn’t this lovely? I think her themes are really nice, simple, and cute. Last year, I used Scrappy for my book blog, which I really loved. Anyway, here’s a recap of some of the things that happened in my life for the past months.


I created this image about a month ago when I was working on my LSM Annual Calendar for 2014. I’m not a coffee drinker but if I need to focus on my work, I would drink a cup before I start typing and analyzing away. And boy, did I drink coffee every day for two weeks. If I was normally, naturally high/hyper, just imagine what coffee did to me. I was buzzed! To think I only drank white coffee.

I meant to write about the things I learned, and the pressure I felt, and the responsibility of helping our patch mates with the calendar leading up to the Sales Rally, but the moment has passed and I didn’t feel like going into details. The funny thing is, I enjoyed every minute of it. I’ve mentioned it before, although not through blogging, but I realized I enjoy the challenges I encounter with this job. Granted it is definitely nerve wracking, but I LOVE IT.

20131224-224609.jpgI’ve heard of Cronuts when it first came out but have never had one. It’s one of those fads that I didn’t get to try right away. A few weeks ago I had a craving for something different when I passed by Gonuts Donuts and I decided to try it. I think this one was almond chocolate something. It was delicious, a bit pricy for my taste, something that I would only buy again if I have a craving.

20131224-224526.jpgAh.. The diet that isn’t really a diet. No, I am not on a quest to lose weight, but this is what I usually end up eating. Before October ended I had thought of eating healthier, like consuming more fruits and vegetables like I did in high school. I saw the flavored instant oatmeal on sale and bought two flavors to sample. Coz, you know, fiber and all. Anyway, I really liked Banana and Honey flavor. It smells awesome.

I also bought oranges, fuji apples, seedless grapes, and ate them on my way to work and for merienda at the office. I must admit, I missed having fruits. I ate oatmeal every day for breakfast and dinner, not because I was dieting, but because it was the easiest and fastest thing to do. I’m too lazy to actually make something for dinner when I get home, hence calling it The Lazy Diet. I may or may not have lost 2lbs. since I started eating oatmeal and fruits. Mom recently brought a new single burner stove so I’ll more or less try cooking again soon. And also, there’s that plan to get that Shake ‘n Go Smoothie Maker. So yay!




Mostly writing about my life and experiences, I started blogging in 2005. This current version of the blog has been established since 2011. Professionally, I'm a homebased SEO Expert for a UK company with international clients. With a wide range of interests and hobbies, it took me a while to narrow down my blog niche. I own and care for 5 dogs in a small studio apartment in Las Piñas City, Philippines. I love traveling locally when I have the means, otherwise, I spend most of my time at home.

    Me? I need to diet because my back hurts a lot now. My 5’2 frame couldn’t carry me anymore. I’ve only had 1 cronuts every, and yes it is pricey, but it’s not something I’d crave a lot. Your theme looks lovely 🙂

      Thank you! I’ve had lower back pains since high school or college. I’ve already lost 20lbs. since I started working. I’ve tried too many diets since high school that I think I’ll just stick to what we learned in grade school, eat a healthy/balanced meal and exercise. I don’t need/want a “hot bod”, I just want to reach my ideal weight and eat whatever I want while staying healthy. XD
