Last Saturday, a friend invited me for a night out. I only have few friends here in Italy but I seldom go out with them. So when my new friend invited me to go out, I didn’t hesitate to come, I gave it a try. To tell you honestly, I panicked a little bit since it’s my first time to go on a ‘night out’. I mean, with friends. I don’t know what to wear. Haha! For goodness’ sake, I know how to dress according to the occasion but I was still pressured – I don’t want to dress down nor overly dressed. I thought of combining something semi-formal and something casual. Talking about playing safe :p I ended up with an origami skirt and a jersey tees ensemble plus booties and a leather jacket to complete the whole look! I didn’t wear any accessories. Done! I guess I survived the whole night. Lol. And I met new friends! Yaaaas! Saturday night was indeed fun!

After an hour of thinking of using ‘Queen B’ or ‘Human Error’ as my blog post title, I finally made up my mind. I chose ‘Queen B’ because my dress says “BELLA” and I want to write something positive. Most of the time, the subject tells what the body is all about. Simple things really matter sometimes.
Bella means beautiful. We, women, always want to feel beautiful. We are all beautiful but admit it or not, sometimes we find it hard to acknowledge our own beauty. When we look in the mirror, we see ourselves the other way around — “I LOOK UGLY”, as we may always say. Sometimes, we need to tell ourselves that we are beautiful because we really are. Now I’m challenging every girl out there to finish the sentence below. Just write down everything that makes you feel beautiful. Write as many as you can. I will also write down mine!
“I believe that I am beautiful because…”
…God made me and He said I’m beautiful.
…I was not afraid to cut my mermaid hair and try a new look.
…I know my flaws and imperfections.
…I am unique.
…I am an amazing daughter, sister, friend and lover.
…I am weak but I am strong.
…I know who I am.
…hatred is not my thing.
…I believe in what I can do.
…I am confident.
…I could go out with my bare face.
I have to end my post here before I could write a noble :p Now, it’s your turn! Feel free to share yours below :)
Since the Philippines is a tropical country, my shorts are my best friends for life! I sold most of my shorts when I had a garage sale and brought few here in Italy. And now I’m getting addicted to buying shorts again, as well as turning my old pants into shorts. Yes, I cut another jeans again and I brought out my creativity. Artsy-farsty!
Things you need: BUCKET, BLEACH SOLUTION, WATER
I think I cut it too short. My bad! But I’ll find ways to fix it :p Anyway, after I cut my jeans, I decided to bleach the bottom part of it. I used a small bucket because I want a dramatic division line. You could achieve it in few steps!
1. Fill the bucket with 1/4 water and 1/4 bleach solution, mix together. (Don’t forget to use gloves so it won’t damage your hands)
2. Fold the shorts vertically (I folded mine 2x).
3. Dip it in the solution. Wait for 30 minutes.
4. I checked it after 20 minutes and as you can see, the color changed. But I want it lighter so I waited for another 10 minutes.
5. Rinse it with water and then dry it!
Here’s the result!!! Yay! I’m into D.I.Y.ing shorts these days. I still have another pants to cut! Watch out! :)
Go make yours too! It’s fun! :)
