Today’s weather just begs for this review to be pushed forth. I was meaning to wait for the weekend after another trip before hitting “publish” but I thought of sharing my happy place with all of you for some relatively quiet and comforting me time this drizzling humpday.

My Favourite Excuse Called WORK

Happy Monday! I’m still wiped out from last weekend’s company-wide team building. Joining as a participant’s always fun (for me at least). I can afford to be a follower vs. a leader calling all the shots, meet practically everyone from our 1700+ associate pool, and most importantly — have lots of fun!

I made a 5 minute video using one of iMovie’s classic templates to show you how we get seriously cray (make sure you have Bonamine next to you). Hope you like it! :)

When times get rough and ugly, I’ve learned overtime to take a step back, breathe deeply, look into my bucket full’o joy, and resume. Recently, I’ve added some new memories into this bucket that truly, make it all worth it.

Grateful for friends who are equally driven, resilient, and crazy.
with Nikki and Angela at the Guerlain pop-up booth (SM Aura)

Grateful for soul sisters who know you through and through.
with Sophie at Hillsong United 2014 *best gift ever*

Grateful for din dins where we can share the best of what we’ve got to our own families.

Grateful for 15 minuters with Twin.

Grateful for having a job + working with the best associates I could ask for.

Grateful for having good food to eat and steady dates with MG
I think this is the secret sauce to my sanity.

How about you? What keeps you grounded and grateful these days?

Short Hair Don’t Care

In lieu of the back to school season, I had to bring photos of myself from either high school or college at work. I told my associates that really — nothing’s changed save for the hair (ok fine and the eyebrows).

Looking at it for a good while got me calling Creations Salon – Cedar for an appointment with big sis Lourd (Ramos). Lourd’s become my favourite for the last 4 years when it comes to getting layered shears or short cuts.
