last week, me and my friend Raf went out of the hospital for a 15-minute break. Usually he tag me during his cigarette breaks and I don't mind inhaling all the shitty nicotine from his mouth. What we didnt know is that there's a small thrift store behind 7 ELEVEN and the rest is history. The alloted 15 minutes extended as i tried on every possible clothes that i like. ehem well not just clothes but shoes as well.. That's why i hate it when i have someone shopping with me. a small dose of friendly advice and encouragement would inevitably push me to shop more.

To my surprise i only have 50 bucks on my pocket but the store owner was kind enough to reserve the 4 items i bought which i will show on my next post soon as i'm in the process of sterilizing each one of them lol..

Thrift shopping is fun but i need someone with me coz i end up gettin frustrated and wasted from all the searching and rummaging not to mention i have a severe case of dust allergy. The next thing i know, my neck is all itchy and reddish! That's why prior to entering a thrift store, i always carry w/ me an antihistamine but unfortunately it always make me so sleepy so most of the time i forego this challenging kind of shopping.
i really feel lucky to have these rugged combat boots.. the zipper details in the middle reminds me of alexander wang's combat boots


i went to my dermatologist yesterday @ St. Luke's Hospital and i had fun .. well not really coz during that 45 minute facial, i was in a terrible terrible state of pain and suffering.
my derma asked me where will i be heading after the treatment since accdg to her, i look party-ready. i explained to her (explained talaga? lol) that i wanna dress up as much as i can and there's nothing too fancy about it.. its just me wearing a basic tee with some sheer odd looking top over it. And about the boots, i wear it the same just like others wear their dirty pair of Crocs..

True to form, we need to suffer to be pretty. There are those effortless and innately pretty folks we see on TV, in the cover of the magazines, on the runways

then there's us. haha

sorry for the lack of pictures taken outside.. its just that most of the time i go out alone and i don't have someone to take pictures of me. ive been a loner these past few days hehe
