Summer Solstice Weekend 2014

The 21 and 22 of June was the summer solstice weekend.  My family had planned that we would go out of town or out of the country around those dates but there were no availability for any affordable city breaks.  I figured out that God wants me to be at this Christian Life Seminar. So I told my friend that I'd be going.   He had invited me to go for as long as we have known each other.

I was really not expecting that much and I was not expecting anything to happen to me since I already am I person of faith. We had talks all day Saturday and also had reflections, confessions and worship. During reflection we were asked to just pray.  Instrumental music was being played by the music ministry and the worship leader was preaching and praying with us.  Then after the instrumental, the first song was "From The Inside Out" by Hillsong.

"A thousand times I've failed
Still your mercy remains
Should I stumble again
Still I'm caught in your grace
Everlasting, your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, your glory goes beyond all fame"
When that song started playing, I started crying. I felt God's love for me. That song was and is still the song that I always listen to when I am hopeless and almost to become faithless. Whenever I listen to that song, I happen to always find myself back on track again. During the pray over, two girls whom I have not met before said their prayers for me. I felt touched. Their prayers for me was so heart felt and genuine and it made me realize that even strangers can pray for you genuinely and that there are genuine people in this world.

During the worship service, the last song we sang was "Set On Fire" and I felt the Holy Spirit in me. I felt God's love and mercy. Words could not explain how great of a feeling it was. I am truly blessed for that to happen. I also made new friends and I'm so happy that I did since I am somewhat a socially awkward person at times.

Thank You God for everything. May you bless everyone with your love and grace.

Haul: Superdry, AllSaints, Tony Moly and Etude House

Yay for two blog post in a day!
At the beginning of the year, my parents and I went to Kiladare Village Shopping Outlet. Got a couple of things that I would like to share with you. This is not me bragging of what I got okay?

Got this shorts from Reebok for only € 5.  I now use it as my jogging shorts :D

This shorts is from AllSaints! Finally I have something from this brand! I've been eyeing AllSaints for so long but I can never afford it but thank God for outlet shopping.  The original price was € 88 but I got this for €28 :D

This is from AllSaints as well. This is actually a large men's shirt but I can work a man's shirt.  I got this for only € 14.

I really like this top! I got it because of the patch! It reminded me like an anime's uniform! And by I, I mean my parents! Thank you mom and dad!

My best friend came back from the Philippines and she got me these make-up items! Yay! I need a few more weeks to test them out for a review :D

You might be wondering where is the Superdry, well I forgot to take a photo of it. And too lazy to do it now. It's just a normal Superdry jacket haha


I have not posted anything in this blog in so long and I apologize to my readers (Are they even any? Haha). This post is way overdue so here it is.
On 28th of May, my friend (more like sister) Bianca treated us for some Korean BBQ to celebrate her graduation.  We went to Hilan Chinese & Korean Restaurant and we ordered Korean BBQ for 5 people and it was more than enough for us six people.  I think the price was about € 70 and we ordered rice and some fries as well.

Here's the group  without me since I was the one who took the photos haha

So here's what we got. We had portions of beef, bulgogi, chicken, shrimps, squid, lamb and the forgot to give us the pork belly at first but they gave it to us anyways.  We also got cabbage leaves, kimchi, ademame, bamboo shoots and other sauces.

My forever sisters
For someone who wanted to venture into the beauty blogging community, I am quite awkward.  I really do not like being in front of the camera. This is me posing the best that I could haha

A close up of my shoes and accessories
The shoes I wore are from Penney's that I got during Christmas for € 5. The orange satchel bag is from River Island and the watch is from Armani Exchange.

Hope you enjoyed my post!
