Into The Woods

Thursday, January 16, 2014





 Sweater: Zara / Skirt: Nava / Bag: Celine / Shoes: Zara / Necklaces: Mauve & F21

It wasn't my intention to leave the house looking like a sly and puckish schoolgirl ready to put a hex on someone but somehow, the woodsy backdrop and the aloof demeanor projected on camera managed to give off that impression (at least that's how I see it). I know I rarely smile in photos but I think this photo set made me look "meaner" than usual...or maybe I was just hungry and wanted the photo session to be over and done with. Haha! Anyhoo, you might be wondering why my posts have been way too erratic and have become less and less frequent. Let's just say that I've been too absorbed with a newly discovered passion - fitness - and it's taking a big chunk out of my remaining free time. Don't worry, I'm not about to inundate this blog with gym selfies or other fitness-related photos (I've decided to do this on my Instagram account instead. Hahaha!), lest you lot start to brand me as just another random individual who's riding on the "fitness fad". While I will not contest that images of fit women that I see online and on print have inspired me to pursue this new active lifestyle, I am mainly doing it for the sole purpose of improving my health. Long gone are the days when I can binge and still remain skinny. Aging is definitely taking its toll on me and it's high time that I start taking good care of my body (before it decides to give up on me). Being fit and healthy is one of my goals for the new year and I'm resolute in achieving it. 

Oh God, help me.

  4. Good luck my dear!! I used to be a gym-aholic, but then I got married. The damn husbands always bring me down! LOL. I try to fit fitness in any way I can though. And I know what you mean about the days gone by of eating whatever we wanted. Le sigh. I will miss you giant cheeseburger. :P

    Good for you though and I hope you stick with it. Loveeee that Celine bag! <3

    1. Lol on the comment about the husband! I used to hate myself for having a skinny body (i like them curves!). I don't consider myself big now but i wish i started exercising years ago so that I don't have to deal with this poochy tummy of mine.

    1. Getting fit and being more active has been on my perennial to-do list as well but I realized that you wont be able to achieve it unless you really devote time for it. That's why during the Christmas break, I forced myself to get up on my ass and start hitting the gym...one of the best damn decisions of my life. 😉 By the way, I used Mac Diva for my lips.
