is a passionista and student often seen making her way to her next class through the buildings of the University of the Philippines Los Baños. She is also an obscure reference user, anglophile, pretty-things hoarder, closet hipster, time traveler, princess in disguise and more than a conqueror.


This blog is an avenue for me to write down my thoughts about life, relationships, art, all things pretty, and my journey with God. I could be a bit random too, depending on my mood.. I hope you don't check out. ;)

Real Beauty

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." 1 Peter 3:3-4 ♥

Found myself tearing up last night when my mom tagged me in this video. Such a sweet, beautiful song. My mom and I have lots of songs for each other, like:

To name a few. 

This song from the 2007 movie Waitress (watching it right now and it’s just my kind of movie — maybe I’ll write a review later) now joins the ranks of some of our favorite songs ever. It’s just so sweet and I can really hear my mom singing it to me, encouraging me, really letting me feel God’s love for me through it. She has always been such a strong presence and an incredible source of encouragement, and I’m so glad she’s my mother.

That said, it’s my prayer that every single young person in the world finds an amazing parent. Maybe not biological, because not everyone has been blessed with one, let alone two, but people who will love them and will embody God’s love for them no matter what. 

Darn it, my classic girl sensitivities are making me cry again.
