back to the grind


after every adventure, i know i must snap myself back to reality. responsibilities await and i have to work my ass off to be able to travel and of course, shop excessively again. i never thought i would say this but after that 5-day shopping stint in Bangkok, i have to admit that i found myself to be such a shopaholic. 

it's a holiday in the Philippines today as we celebrate the end of Ramadan. although i'm a Christian, our country does consist of a significant percentage of Muslim people and respecting that is one good step to attaining peace here. anyway, i was totally preparing myself to write the articles that have been waiting for me since i arrived but after 5 hours in front of the computer, i just couldn't bring myself to do so. don't get me wrong, i love writing but i've sort of been drained of motivation to write. writing these articles would mean extra moolah for me and i don't understand why i can't just write a few 300-word articles. (you need to set your priorities, Gizelle!)

floral shirt dress - mom's closet
leopard-printed flats - parisian, sm dept store
brown braided belt - borrowed from sis
brown bag - platinum mall, bangkok
wooden bangles: brown and green - raw materials store, cebu
stone rings: teal stone and burnt orange - props
elephant necklace - carbon find

just a quick update on my recent job switch: i am still very much loving it but am slowly pressured on how else i am going to get more clients for Drawingboard Creative Studios. i guess that's how it's always going to be in the field of sales and marketing. and while we're mentioning my company, might as well promote it a little here. better yet, let's get the version one of the Drawingboard portfolio to do the talking:
