This is the first book that I read when the year 2013 started. I promised myself that I will trudge a new life. A life where hatred and anger will not set in. A life where I will forgive and forget the people who hurt me the most.

I went to National Bookstore and the cover of this book caught my eyes. The color is nice and the graphics is good. I am the type of person wherein if I purchase a book, the cover must also be pleasing to the eye. As I was reading the title, it occurred to me the question “Is this what I really needed?”. Then as I flipped the book, it was written in bold letters “ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM A DEEP LOSS IN YOUR LIFE?”. Then another question popped inside my head, “Am I?”. I would be hypocrite is I say no, the person I cannot fool is myself. So I grabbed my purse and went to the cashier to purchase the book.

This book tackles about all type of losses. A loved ones from a separation or divorce, losing someone because of death, may it be a family member, a wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, or a friend. It teaches you to learn to accept and move on.

The best part of the book that I like is the message:

“If you love him, set him free: If he comes back, it is because he has never forgotten you. If he does not, forget him.” However, the author has a contradicting idea and formulated his own interpretation that goes like this, “If you love someone, do not let him go without telling him of your pain, and the difficulties that his decision will cause in your life.”

If your beloved returns, do not accept him back before making sure that, during his absence, he has resolved his inner conflicts and has grown.

If your beloved has not returned, do not wait indefinetely; bid your dreams goodbye.

Life has much more in store for you. – John Monbourquette

In my own conclusion, self help books can be very helpful in times of confusion as it provides answers and realization to the questions that you have in mind. However, the best person can help you with your issue is none other than yourself. The decision will not be based on what you read or what the author says. The decision will be all yours and that would defy the life that you will walk through.

One relaxing afternoon date with a best-friend photographer turned out to be a fantastic photo-shoot.  Is it true that it is always nice to have a photographer for a best-friend?  Because it is believed that when you are together, you will be her subject of photography. Well, then I have confirmed that it is really true.
My dress did not disappoint me for this photo-shoot as it appears to be such a lovely photogenic outfit. Though, I will not deny the fact that we have been shooting this in a park with lots of people (since it is a Sunday, family day) and curious eyes will be looking at you and you will then realize that you become self-conscious, and your ever supportive photographer best-friend would tell you to not look at them so that you will not feel that way. Oh well, it did worked.
Funny how matching clothes becomes really classy and elegant. I am always a fan of classic style. That is why I loved Audrey Hepburn. They do not go out of style and in years to come, it will become trendy again. I am in love with black and white. It is the safest colors I can find and they will give you such an elegant touch. I always dress in a safe way. I do not experiment with loud colors, maybe because I always go for a more tranquil ones. I always want to look calm and relaxed. I would not be tired wearing black and white, even if they think it’s boring. The key to make it look nice is to always accessorize. :-)

I wore this dress when I went out to meet my old friends Kathy and Cristine. It has been a long time since I last saw them and we arranged to meet in Starbucks for a cup of coffee and small talks. Wearing the most comfortable dress that you can find in your closet is rewarding, since you will not be going around and feel conscious and uncomfortable, plus I also have this superb comfortable heels. I am the type of person who will go for comfort rather than style. But, a comfort plus style is already a bonus and that exactly is what I feel on this night.

I don’t usually wear blue. It is not the color that I would grab when I go on shopping, but when I saw this dress, I immediately fell in love with it that I even asked if they have other colors like black or pink or white. What I loved about this is the lace details at the back. It gives you an exuding aura of great confidence, because you know that this is a unique style. When the Sales Lady told me that they don’t have other color for this dress, I felt a little upset. I cannot take my hands off this item even if it is not the color that I wanted. I still took the risk and bought the dress without a second thought. I went home, debating with myself if I would regret the purchase or not. I have been an impulsive buyer and I am trying my very best to think a million times before purchasing something.

As soon as I arrived home, I fitted this dress right away (even if I already fitted this at the store). I found myself smiling for the fact that this color looks good on me, it fits perfectly and it is what I really wanted. Voila! Turns out, this has been one of my favorite dresses now.
