July 2016 #OOTDS

Let’s a take a break from the travel posts (but I would still blog some more travel-related posts next week because I have some backlog stories to share), and talk about outfits! Haha.. I was (and still am) seriously considering converting this blog into a travel blog because travel-related posts seem to be the more popular posts. But I just can’t resist the temptation of posting outfit photos because outfit photos were the core and the backbone of this blog since its creation. I will resolve to publish only one #ootd post per month because, the truth is, I also don’t go out often. Continue reading “July 2016 #OOTDS”

FIND | Patterned Bowls

Because I have a tiny apartment and an even tinier kitchen, I try to keep the colors of my dinnerware to a monochrome. I am also a huge Muji fan and I try to emulate their monochromatic kitchen and dinnerware design. I need to spice my life, and my kitchen, a little though as I find the monochrome depressing, especially during this rainy season when the skies are gloomy and our cave of a home is dark.

FIND | P10 Books

I’ve been to several garage sales, but have never been to a moving-out sale. I’m always on the look-out for one, especially for expats living in Cebu and moving out, but I had no luck. Until my husband and I were waiting for our marriage contract at the Bible school in the city and we saw an advertisement for a moving-out sale. We were lucky because the moving out sale was on that day and just in the other building.

The foreigner who owned the things sold was moving to a smaller apartment and their furniture (which are huge) cannot fit in the smaller home. I could not buy the furniture because they would not fit our also small apartment, but I was lucky he had books for sale. And they were only for P10 each!!! These are my second copies of The Elements of Style (really helpful for writers and editors, and a fun read too) and The Cather In The Rye. My first copies were borrowed and never returned. Yep, these are really good books.

Stackable Mugs, Vintage-Inspired Kettle

DSC_6673Since I moved to a tiny apartment, I have started to be conscious as to the things I buy for myself and for the home as I do not have much space to store things and I don’t want to be bothered with too many things to arrange. One of the things I have been on a look-out for were stackable mugs. I’ve found a lot of stackable cups (especially those commonly used by hotels and catering companies), but I wanted mugs that could more than five sips of coffee or chocolate. I also wanted them to be cheap (my blog isn’t called “Thrifting Adventures” for nothing). Continue reading “Stackable Mugs, Vintage-Inspired Kettle”
