Project Pretty Little Cravings

Few years ago, I fell in love at first sight. It was like heavens thoughtful act that we met at the right time. I was in need of a breather and a cozy nook to relieve the stress I was in. I heard retail therapy also works at that time, but I’m pinching some for a future big event then. So, I was really happy to be spending quality down time with this new found love, authentic budget-friendly, Swedish home decor store — Ikea. Oh, the days I spent just wandering around Ikea store, no matter how I already memorized the interior maze still brings about a gratified feeling.

When I finally settled down and owned a place to decorate and fill with all the gorgeous furnitures and fixtures, Ikea was not available readily in the Philippines. And I cringe at how expensive Manila resellers market these items.

Fast forward to 2013, I  decided to start a little project, called Pretty Little Cravings on Instagram. We were furnishing our newly turned-over condo unit and I just had to ship few items from Singapore where we were based. I figured out I can save on shipping cost if I take some orders from people who were just like me, eager to get their hands on some few pieces from Ikea. The project was well received and up until now, I still can’t believe that a lot of our avid followers are also returning customers.

Back to School!

Lately, I’ve been caught up with the idea of going back to school. Who wouldn’t love being at school again when there’s something new to learn and new people to meet? You get years of wisdom after college and you think you can ace the exam easily now that you want to go back.

I have been inspired with so many people who went through another course entirely different from their field and took another shot to fulfill a dream.

I have high respect especially to those working double shift and breadwinners, yet they still aspire for education and success.

What course am I considering to get myself into is another confusion since I have so many on my list. I wanted to take a short course in designing, or anything about graphics and computer stuff, then there’s interior design and fashion design and my newest desire to take law. Did I mention I have a lot on my list? They aren’t completely related I know, so that seems to make it more complicated to choose only one. Continue reading

Too Blessed to be Stressed

I’m too blessed to be stressed,
Too anointed to be disappointed.
I refuse to be discouraged,
To be sad or to cry.
I refuse to be downhearted
and here’s the reason why:

I have a God who is almighty;
Who is sovereign and supreme.
I have a God who loves me —
and I am on His team.

He is all wise and powerful;
Jesus is His name.
Though everything else is changeable,
My God remains the same.

I refuse to be beaten or defeated.
My eyes are on my God.
He has promised to be with me,
as through this life I trod.

I am looking past my circumstances,
to heaven’s throne above.
My prayers have reached the heart of God
and I am resting in His love.

I give thanks to Him in everything.
My eyes are on His face.
The battle is His;
the victory is mine;

He will help me win the race.
I repeat!
I’m too blessed to be stressed!
