Reality bites: Trust

Trusting someone. Do we really need to trust someone? Is it that important? Can you really trust someone wholeheartedly? Without any questions and doubts? Are you brave enough to take a risk and trust someone?

I’ve been betrayed many times, by my friends, special someone and even a family member.

Different aspects and levels but still.. I was betrayed.

The feeling is nothing but awful, it’s like letting them bite you in the ass.  It’s exposing yourself out in the open and letting them have a feast.

Trust makes you vulnerable but it also opens us to new possibilities and chances. If you trust too much, you will be deceived and if not you’ll just let the opportunities pass. You have to remind yourself not to open up and be too honest with people. They said that “The best proof of love is trust”, therefore you have to trust yourself in order to love yourself. I can’t really apply that on relationships though because for me Trust in relationships are a bit overrated and overused that it becomes vague and meaningless.

I think that trusting is not about the other person, it’s not about how good he/she treats you because I can assure you that.. someday, somehow they will betray you in any way without you even knowing it.

I’m not a hater neither am I a bitter person, I just lack the will to trust others anymore. I believe that it’s important to trust God first and then yourself.

Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:5

Have you been sunkissed?

It’s the end of the month of May. It’s raining tonight and summer is over. Class will start soon and I think, for students it’s back to their normal boring and stressful school life.  Summer is already over and I’m a bit devastated because I  was not able to fully enjoyed it, all I’ve experienced was the intense summer heat. I did not go swimming and even go out of town. I wasted another summer.

I miss the days when summer vacation was about relaxing and hanging out with friends. Now it’s all about working and squeezing your friends in when you can.='(

What did you do this summer?

The hands of the creatively maladjusted.

Nowadays, people are so into fashion and most girls like dressing up. Everyday, especially on the internet we can see girls and also boys who show us on how to dress up showing different styles and in different ways. You can see them on Lookbook or Chictopia. They call themselves Fashionistas, Fashion trendsetter or Style seekers. Probably my favorite fashion blogger/enthusiast is Jessica Tran, she’s from Australia but she looks very asian, her style is really unique and very chic and I love how she writes her blogs.

I like dressing up too and wearing cute dresses and clothes. I really adore Korean’s style of clothing and I’m a big fan of Thrift stores. But, what I love doing most is creating or making dresses and clothes.

I learned how to sew because of my mom. She’s a famous Fashion designer, JUST KIDDING! hehe. Before she became a Public Official she’s into dressmaking and we have a Sewing machine and a lock-stitch machine. So, when I was younger, I always see her sewing but I really had no interest in dressmaking at that time. Little did I know that later on, I will be really hooked on it. I guess, as they said children often acquire the talent or skills of their parents. I think that’s what happened to me.

Right now, I’m still a beginner and I can only make sleeveless tops and garterized skirts. I also know how to alter some clothes or dresses, like what I did here. I like the feeling of seeing the finished product and it’s exciting to wear it knowing that you made it.

Here’s one of the flowy sleeveless tops that I made.

I think sleeveless are really easy to do, you just need a pattern for front and back and follow the pattern direction for putting the front and back of the garment together. Sew everything together according to the pattern.

Here’s the garterized skirt that I made.

It’s hard making this because you have to measure the garter and you have to make sure that it will fit the length of the garment that you already cut out.

I know I still need more practice and effort before I can make real dresses and clothes. But, atleast I already know the basics. That proud feeling that you get whenever you see and wear your creations are already worth it.

“We are all artists in everything we do. Art is creating; it is our link that makes us like god. All you have to do is look at any form of nature to know that god was the greatest artist of all. He gives us beauty in his creations to inspire us to find the artists inside of us. Art isn’t just about painting or sculpture. It is in everything from how you organize your life to how communicate with the world.”

Uttered or unexpressed

Is it just me or is prayer sometimes a little weird?  I mean I believe we should pray and I like to pray but there are times when I am just stuck and can’t find the words to say to HIM. I mean what can I say to the Creator of everything that He already doesn’t know?  I don’t know maybe it’s just me but sometimes praying is really difficult for me. 

When we pray to God we must be seeking nothing – nothing.  ~Saint Francis of Assisi

Fun.

Fun.- All the pretty girls

This beat, the lyrics, the band and the video are all loaded with tons of cuteness! I can’t help but to post this.

Oh c’mon, what’s a boy to do,
when all the pretty girls can’t measure to you.

Here’s another one from Fun., this song has  been used in several other media or TV series. Glee made a version of this song.

We Are Young” and featuring Janelle Monáe

And their version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call me maybe.

They also has a version of Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye  feat. Hayley Williams. It was amazing as well.

I’ve been listening to their songs all day!

You can know more about them on their site. www.ournameisfun.com

Shake it out

Since I was feeling a little rejected today. I was trying to distract myself with other things by listening to music, and then suddenly this song came up on my playlist. (I like Katharine’s Version).

Anyway, this song is amazing. Clearly about your failures and bad memories affecting you today. Stop dragging them around and shake them out! It was kind of like, ‘Shake yourself out of it, things will be okay’.

It’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So, shake him off!

So, I realized that it’s a way of life and if I let it go on too long, it will only get worse. It will fester and multiply. Who wants that anyway? I know that I did my best and that’s really what matters most. It’s not really a big deal but I got really disappointed. Oh well, I can always try again.

“My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.”

Not what I am in search of

Today was supposed to be a job hunting day, but instead it turned out to be a fringe cropped top and a small satchel bag hunting day!

It was out of the plan but since Kae wanted to buy a skirt I accompanied her, however, I was the one who bought many things. Ugh.

I’ve been looking for a top like this since last week but I failed.

Image

I realized, why look for something like this when I can make my own. It’s very easy to do. So, I just bought a white sleeveless top for 50 Pesos. And I took a risk! hehe

Image

Of course, I can’t really cut the lower part unto the belly portion because I don’t have a flat stomach. haha!

Here’s the end result.

Image

And now, I’m thinking of when I can use this. hmm.

As I said, I was also looking for a small satchel bag since my small bag can’t really handle all the things that I bring whenever I go out. I have a big bag, given by my boyfriend but I use that for heavier things and whenever I go to work.

So while looking..

I was thinking of these bags.

Image

But, I found this!

Image

For only, 120 Pesos, I got my self a really cute satchel bag. =)
