CHRISTMAS IN HALLOWEEN

| On :
I'm almost two months late but, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I remember going to trick-or-treat events when I was younger and I always used just one costume every year - a witch. I don't think I had a say on who I wanted to be then and all that mattered to me was the candies I'll be able to collect. But I do remember dressing-up as Barbie and joining this contest where I had to walk on a runway... I didn't win, though...... moving on. I think I only had did trick-or-treats thrice in my entire life, and that was when I was a kid. Growing up, I never got to experience it again with my friends (as a tween or a teenager.) I was either too lazy or... just lazy, really. 

Last October 30th, I was finally able to dress-up on a Halloween afternoon and I celebrated it with my Kawaii Philippines family for their first Halloween party: The Kawaii Halloween Costume Party! And guess what I dressed up as? 

[REVIEW] Etude House: Bubble Hair Color in Lavender Brown

| On :

Ever since I was young, I've always wondered how I'd look if I had my hair colored. From anime to K-pop, these things are what pushed my interest in coloring my mane. Other than that, bloggers like Reese Lansangan and Tricia Gosingtian are also a few of the people who have influenced me through their numerous hair color changes for the past years.

Colored hair wasn't allowed in my Alma Mater, and even though almost everyone in my batch were itching to get their hair colored, we couldn't. So as soon as I graduated from High School, I immediately bought myself hair color. Hehe.

Confidence

| On :

I grew up having no confidence whatsoever in wearing skirts, dresses and shorts – basically those that show the legs and all. Going all “ay, ‘di naman 'to bagay sa akin eh” or “my sister would just end up teasing me on how ugly I am”. 


Three years ago, I wrote a blog post about growing up as a kid with a really low self-esteem that I never had the confidence to wear dresses, skirts, and shorts -- basically anything that exposes my legs. Other than that, I've always worn boyish clothes when I was younger and wearing those pretty clothes I'd see in boutiques all seemed like a dream that I can never reach. Fast forward to my so-called tween years, I slowly came out of my shell. I joined go-see's, started wearing this one dress and skirt, and I finally learned how to smile with my teeth.

Rainbows, clouds, and flowers made of balloons, catchy Japanese music, and people of all ages filled the SM Megamall Events Center last June 17, 2015. What for, you ask? Kawaii Philippines finally launched their first book! With the whole Kawaii PH community working hand-in-hand to create one amazing book, all their hard work has finally paid off with an event that celebrates a milestone for everyone. 

Work in Progress

July 2, 2015

Today, I decided to check out my blog again -- Celina the Unicorn on Tumblr. I went to all 116 pages filled with the thoughts and low-quality iTouch photos of a blogger who started exposing her life to the internet in 2011. And how every blogger has put their best foot forward on the internet, I used both. My blog was basically filled with things I've always wanted to share but couldn't verbally. I found ramblings about how difficult school was, thoughts about my life, and I saw bits and pieces of myself with every text, photo, video, and audio post.
