July Favorites 2016

Hi everyone! It is now time for another round of favorites. But for the month of July, I did something a little bit different compared to the usual favorites blog posts I do. I challenged myself to make a video instead of just typing everything. I really enjoyed filming and editing this so please watch! Thank you so much!

Happy Accidents

DSC06438

I am so happy that it’s the weekend and I don’t have that much school work to do!!! Anyway, my classes finished by 1 pm a while ago so I decided to watch a movie at home, and that movie was Serendipity. To be honest, I never even knew what that word meant before, and I only found out recently because of AlDub, since their story is similar to serendipity, aka a happy accident. I found the movie so cute and nakakakilig because personally, I also believe in fate and destiny. Actually, my name literally means destiny. haha! I absolutely believe that although we are still the ones who make our own destiny, there are some things that are already planned for us. There are things in our lives that need not be forced because the universe will conspire to make them come true! 🙂

I love wearing outfits like this which look classy and elegant. Style tip: Instead of wearing a nice blouse with the typical denim jeans, go for white pants instead. It’s a total game changer! But make sure it’s not your time of the month when you wear them. haha!

Top from H&M, Pants and Shades from Uniqlo, Shoes from Cotton On, Bag from Egg

What about you? Do you believe in fate, destiny, and happy accidents too? 🙂

March Favorites 2016

12939145_10204526229955733_1822893893_n

(1) Friends Funko Pop! Collection. If you didn’t know already, I am a HUGE Friends fan! I have watched every single episode of the hit TV series and it’s just one of those shows that can be considered as classic because you can never get tired of watching it again and again. I actually posted about this collection in my February Favorites 2016 post, and I am happy to say that I finally completed the collection! Honestly, they were so hard to find but I found a store in Greenhills that had the whole set! I got super excited that I asked my dad if he could buy me the four ones that I didn’t own yet, and he gladly said yes because he knew how much of a Friends geek I am. haha! Thanks Daddy!

(2) New makeup and goodies! My tita from the US gave me some goodies as her present for my 18th birthday, which happened last January. She gave me my first ever Naked (3) palette, Zoella Beauty products, and Tanya Burr lipglosses! Ah I am a happy kid!!! I never thought that I would be able to own these items because they are expensive and are not really available in the Philippines. And when I laid my hands on Zoella Beauty, I couldn’t believe that I was actually holding it! Call it shallow or what, but I really admire Zoe Sugg, and to be able to have her products can already make me jump for joy!

(3) Unicorn phone case. I saw this phone case at Greenhills last week, and I immediately knew I wanted to get it for myself! I’m not really that into unicorns (I like mermaids better), but it was just so cute that I couldn’t help it. I am so happy with this purchase!

DSC06111

(4) French braids. It is starting to get scorching hot here in the Philippines, so I always just want to tie my hair up. But I got tired of the usual high ponytail, that’s why I decided to try pigtail french braids on my hair. I can actually do this to my own hair so I didn’t find it difficult to do. I really think french braids are gonna make a comeback because they are effortlessly cute!

Movies.

(5) Allegiant. I am a huge fan of the Divergent book series and I really look forward when a new movie from this franchise comes out. I watched Allegiant two weeks ago and it was a fairly good movie. I loved the beginning because it was already so intense, and I really like all the plot twists they put into it. Also, for some reason, Theo James looks more handsome in Allegiant?? And if I’m not mistaken, there will be a next movie after this one, which is also gonna be the last part of the series, and I am excited to see how it turns out and if they will either keep or refrain from the unexpected and unpredictable ending in the book! Hmm…

(6) A Second Chance. FINALLY I got to watch this movie!!! Sobrang galing dito ni John Lloyd! Grabe lang! I also love the story because it teaches you that marriage is not really everything we hope for, rather, it is everything we do not expect. There can never be a “happily ever after” without communication, effort, and of course, love. It is such a freakin’ great movie and I honestly think everyone should watch this!!! But make sure you’ve watched One More Chance before this one though. haha!

Shows.

(7) Pretty Little Liars Season 6 Finale. If you know me personally, you would know how much I am addicted to Pretty Little Liars! I have been a loyal and religious viewer of the series ever since it started, and I always like reading theories of who A is. PLL’s Season 6 Finale literally gave me chills and goosebumps and mini heart attacks!!! The jump scares were probably my favorite part, and I love how every mystery is slowly coming to a close (since it will be the last season next season huhu). I can’t wait for Season 7! Aaaahh!!!

(8) Awkward Season 5B. Awkward is also one of my favorite shows because it is so funny and entertaining and it makes you feel kilig and sakit all at the same time. I honestly thought that this show was drama because of its trailer, but boy was I wrong! However, it really saddens me that this is the last season for Awkward NOOOO 😦 I’m excited to see how the story will end and what may or may not happen to Jenna and Matty. P.S. I LOVE MATTY MCKIBBEN SO MUCH! ❤

(9) Property Brothers / Brother Vs. Brother. I have been watching a lot of HGTV lately and now I’m hooked on the Scott brothers’ shows! They really work well as a tandem and the designs Jonathan comes up with are just amaaazing. I also find them good-looking but every time I comment on that, my mom or my cousin will say that they look so gay. They are not!!! *secretly wishes to meet Jonathan and Drew someday*

(10) #ALDUBMaineEvent. Wow have I been watching a lot of TV. Of course, how can I not love Maine Mendoza’s birthday celebration in Eat Bulaga? Ok fine I’ll get straight to the point. NAGKISS NA SILA AAAAHHHH OHMYGOOOOOSSHH!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

Songs.

(11) Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Ariana Grande is a freaking queen because she slays almost every song there is??? Haha, but I really do love her new song Dangerous Woman because it’s so catchy and it also reminded me of the songs Earned It and Natural Woman LOL. Major LSS!

(12) YOUTH by Troye Sivan. Troye is also one of my faves and his songs are just so good!!! YOUTH is also one big LSS to me and I swear I can’t stop singing it in my head. *my youth is yours, trippin’ on skies, sippin’ waterfalls*

Others.

(13) Say Tioco’s YouTube channel. I’ve heard of Say Tioco for a long time now, but only now did I give in to watching her videos. I love her vlogs for I just find them very interesting and entertaining. I love her kaartehan kasi nakakahawa HAHAHA and every time she says “Bongga!” or “Ka-lerks-berks-merks-werks” just cracks me up! She is also a beauty guru and I love how passionate she is about her job. Grabe, idol!

(14) vernverniece.com. My favorite fashion bloggers are Vern and Verniece Enciso and when I was in high school, I used to read their (formerly separate) blogs every single day. And then I kind of just stopped reading blogs because I just opted to watch beauty and fashion videos on YouTube instead. However, I still kept up with Vern and Verniece’s social media accounts. Recently, I decided to why not read V ❤ V once again and I am so happy I made that choice. Iba pa rin talaga kapag sa blog sila nagsusulat because it comes from their hearts. I don’t know, I just really love the way they (especially Vern) write. It’s simple but it touches your heart. I love them so much!

(15) AnBie. I mentioned in my last favorites post that I love watching That’s My Amboy on TV, and as time passes by, I can’t help but ship Andre Paras and Barbie Forteza! They look so cute together and sobrang kulit nila. Nakaka-good vibes sila panoorin and I’m looking forward to watching their full interview on Pep Talk soon. For sure, it’s gonna be so fun to watch!

How is it April already??? I actually thought it would be a fun day today since it is April Fools BUT sadly, I woke up to some really unfortunate news. The Faculty Center of my university (UP Diliman) burned down 😦 😦 😦 Everything inside it is now gone. All the papers, books, gadgets, every single one 😦 I wish I could say that this is one big joke but it isn’t. huhuhuhuhu.

October Favorites 2015

DSC04699

Happy November! It is time for another round of favorites! October passed by real quick for me but at the same time didn’t. Does that even make sense? LOL

DSC04709

(1) Broadway-themed notebook from Typo. I love Typo! Their store is so IG/Tumblr worthy. I especially love their notebooks (plus points if it’s on sale), and I even gifted all my best friends with one. The notebook that I own though is Broadway-themed. I absolutely love Broadway/theater! Too bad I’m not blessed with an angelic voice 😦 But anyway, when I saw the notebook in the store, I knew I had to get it!

(2) JaDine scrapbook. I HAVE HAD THE BIGGEST CRUSH ON JAMES REID EVER SINCE HIS PBB DAYS. That is why every time I see him on the cover of something, I immediately want to buy it. Ayan, napabili tuloy ako! It was so worth it though hahah. Plus, I also love Nadine Lustre 🙂

(3) YES! Magazine’s AlDub/Kalyeserye November issue. The day they said this issue was coming out, I already told my dad to buy me one. And he actually did! The first ever sit-down interview of Maine Mendoza is part of this issue, and I immediately read it. Fangirl much? haha

12200891_10203744114883345_1809462953_n

(4) Benefit Cosmetics Life of the Party. ALL THOSE BENEFIT GOODIES FOR ONLY P2000! Such a steal! That was actually the first thing I ever bought from Benefit, since makeup from their brand is really expensive. Usually, you would only get one makeup product from Benefit for P2000. But this one had a lot of small makeup items, all for that same price. It was so worth it!

12202499_10203744115163352_455821987_n

(5) Tangle Teezer. I first heard about this product from YouTube beauty gurus, who all seemed impressed with it. I thought they didn’t sell it in the Philippines, but then I saw one at a store in Greenhills, so I decided to get one. Let me tell you, the Tangle Teezer really works! I don’t know how it does it, but it works! Even my parents tried it and were impressed. haha!

12200972_10203744114923346_1622402552_n

(6) Forever 21 Pouch Bag. As an architecture student, you will be needing a “toolbox” for all your markers. And being the “Moira” that I am (haha), I had to get one in pink. When I saw this in Forever 21, I fell in love with it! It is just so “me.” My blockmates actually thought it was a lunchbox, but they still thought it was pretty cute. hehe

(7) 4th Impact. If you haven’t heard about this all-Filipina girl group who is part of this year’s X Factor UK, then you’ve probably been living under a rock! The group is composed of 4 sisters who came all the way from the Philippines to the UK to follow their dreams. And I must say, ang galing nila!!! Even Simon Cowell likes them. They are now part of the live shows, but so far, their performance of Burlesque is my favorite! Talagang napatigil mundo ko! WAW!

CNPQnWTUsAA39ew

(8) The Pessimistic Optimist Bella.  Yes, I am a big fan of Maine Mendoza, so of course, I had to stalk her. LOL! But seriously, I loved reading her blog because it felt like I was personally getting to know her. I really love Maine because she is very down-to-earth. Yung parang hindi mo feel na “artista” siya, feel mo kaibigan mo lang. I knew about her because of her Dubsmash videos, and from there, I already thought to myself that I wouldn’t be surprised if I see her on TV soon, since she is really funny. Ayun, nagkatotoo nga! Maine, if you’re reading this (wow baka???), ALDUB YOU! *pabebe wave* (mainemendoza.com)

Shows.

(9) Four Sisters and a Wedding. I decided to watch this again because this is my favorite Filipino movie. It’s such a great family movie because it’s funny, but at the same time, madrama? My favorite parts are Bea Alonzo’s monologue and the last line of Sam Milby. Naiiyak ako kapag napapanood ko yun 😦

(10) Girl Meets Rah Rah. I got to have a Girl Meets World marathon one night, and this was one of the episodes I watched. Its topic was “trying,” and it highlighted the process of how Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. If you didn’t already know, Edison tried 10,000 times before succeeding in his invention. And if he didn’t try 10,000 times, there would be no light in this world today. My favorite quotes from the episode were:

“So if you only try 9,000 times, then nothing will really happen.”

“Dream your dreams, little ones, because nothing is impossible. And isn’t that the kind of world you’d want to live in?”

(11) Girl Meets Texas. OHMYGOD MY HEART!!! This 3-part episode was so complicated, yet it was so… honest? I mean, because in some shows or movies, you already know who is going to end up together right from the start. But GMW took a different turn, a more realistic one perhaps. Feelings are complicated, especially when you’re young. Girl Meets Texas did not really conclude anything, but that’s what I like about the series, because they actually show that life doesn’t always have conclusions, but rather, it just goes on.

(12) Tamang Panahon. Do I even need to explain why I loved this???

Songs.

(13) Higher by Lea Salonga. Lea Salonga is my favorite Filipino artist! Her voice is sooo clean, huhu kainggit. She’s returning to Broadway soon with the new musical Allegiance. Higher is one of her songs from the show, and it was made especially just for her. Super LSS! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Cb2f09OS-U)

(14) Dessert by Dawin. WATCHAGUN WATCHAGUN DO WITH THAT DESSERT? DOG CAT BINALIKTAD KINUROT PA HAHAHAHAHAH (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZp_axebSfQ)

(15) Bahala Na by James Reid and Nadine Lustre. When I remember this song, I always think it is such a good theme song for my college life. “Nananananana nanananana, wala na kong pake basta bahala na!” HAHAH (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXrLhV1vvUA)

I am hoping that November will be a good month. 🙂

September Favorites

02-3

Happy October everybody! Since September just ended, I think it was the perfect time to do a favorites post. I feel like September flew by real quick! Do you feel the same?

02-1

(1) Hula Hoop. I have known how to hula hoop ever since I was a little girl. Every now and then, my cousins and I would hula hoop together and learn a few tricks. And just recently, I figured out how to transfer the hoop from my waist to my neck! I was so happy!!! I’ve been trying to do that for years and finally, nagawa ko na!!! Woo!!! (hula hoop from Toy Kingdom)

02-4

(2) Flash Tattoos. I am loving flash tattoos because they are so pretty! And they can also last for days. I just wish there were more flash tattoos with designs that actually look like real tattoos. *sigh* (flash tattoos from Girl Shoppe)

(3) Paano Ba ‘To?! This is probably my favorite non-fiction book! I recently got it back from one of my best friends who borrowed it, so I decided to read it again. Every time I’m having those moments wherein I question my life and my existence (luh), this is what I read. Definitely a must-buy! (book from National Bookstore)

(4) Thoughts & Reflections. This is actually a 3-year journal wherein for every single day, there is a question you have to answer (same question per date per year). And from your answers, you will see how much you have grown and changed over the past years. I actually first saw this from one of Zoella’s videos. So when I saw this journal in a store, I decided to get it because I think the concept of it is really cool. *thumbs up* (journal from Typo)

02-5

(5) Baby Lips Candy Wow in Cherry. This is a tinted lip balm and it really does give color to your lips! This is actually much more effective than the smaller versions of Baby Lips. You should definitely get it if you’re the type who wants color on your lips but does not want to wear lipstick. haha (lip balm from Watsons)

(6) Blending Brushes. Whenever I’m bored late at night, I usually start putting makeup on my face just because I enjoy it. And these blending brushes really do make a difference! They’re also so fluffy and soft. hehe (blending brushes from Dear Kate and Wellworth)

(7) Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil. Before, I always used powder when doing my brows because I didn’t own any eyebrow pencils. So I decided to buy one and personally, it is much easier to use than eyebrow powder and brush. It also saves a lot of time. (or maybe I’m just really slow lol) (eyebrow pencil from Merkado Supermarket)

02-7

(8) Iphone 5c Case. It is sooo hard trying to find a nice case for 5c! Stores don’t really sell much of them anymore. I even considered just buying online or maybe make my own DIY phone case. But then, I saw this at Claire’s and it was so pretty! My blockmates also liked my new case and they said it was so “me.” haha (phone case from Claire’s)

IMG_8483

(9) Gerry’s Plus Pork Spareribs. SOBRANG SARAP. I CRAVE IT EVERY SINGLE DAY. BEST RESTAURANT DECISION I’VE EVER MADE.

Shows.

(10) AlDub. Yes, I am a big fan of Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye! I’ve actually known about Maine Mendoza ever since her first Dubsmash video, and that was the time I started to be her fan. I found out about Kalyeserye through her FB account, where she shared a video of her and Alden during Day 2. I found her pabebe wave sooo funny and their Dubsmash of Twerk it Like Miley was just hilarious! I really hope they get together in real life!!! They are so cute!!!!

(11) Awkward: Prank Amateurs. FINALLY AWKWARD IS BACK!!! I loved the season premiere! ANG GWAPO NI MATTY HUHU AKIN KA NA LANG YOU DESERVE A LOT BETTER.

(12) Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Farkle. I loved this episode because it tackled a topic that you would never expect from a Disney show, and that topic is autism. The writers did a wonderful job. I loved one of the lines where Farkle says, “Please don’t ever let me not understand love.” That gets me every time. 😦

Songs.

(13) Worth It by Fifth Harmony. Major LSS. I’ve also been doing a cardio hiphop workout that I found on YouTube and it used this song. Now I can’t get it out of my head! lol (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOkBrurM9G4)

(14) Yaya by Jimmy Bondoc. We all know that because of AlDub, a lot of Filipinos have been writing original songs inspired by the said duo. But this song by Jimmy Bondoc gave me chills. I almost cried when I first heard it! Sobrang ganda. This is probably now my second fave OPM song, next to Ikaw by Yeng Constantino. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8E3sgxcPAwc)

(15) WILD by Troye Sivan. I FREAKIN’ LOVE TROYE SIVAN. I have yet to find time to listen to his new album. But just by watching his Blue Neighborhood videos, I already know I’m gonna fall in love with it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdXNNveYOfU)

Sorry if this was a lengthy post! But don’t worry, this will only happen once a month haha! I hope everyone will have a great October and a fun Halloween!

xo, moira ❤
