High Tea at Mary Grace

This was from last Saturday as my friends and I ended another stressful week of deadlines, job interviews, and what not. First of all, I am terribly sorry for having nothing but stress and work to mention in my posts. Apparently, that’s how life is for me right now. I do hope to start posting more about fun, exciting things. But for the mean time, bear with me as I have nothing but stress, stress, and more stress written all over my agenda.

Nicole, Jenni, Tal, and I had a nice little tea party (if you’d call it that) at Café Mary Grace last Saturday. It was pretty surprising of my friends to be splurging on our “tambayan” since we usually just stick to Big Chill ’cause it’s well…cheap, to be blunt. But don’t get me wrong, even if it costs us less to hang out at Big Chill, we still end up paying for more since we buy more because the food and the drinks are cheaper than any other place in Greenbelt (Well except for A-Gantea. But we stopped hanging out there ’cause we’re just all so sick of milk tea already and Aey’s on friggin’ diet). So anyway, Mary Grace it was and we loved how cozy the ambience was. We hung out at Mary Grace the day before also, right after our Job fair. Nicole, Tal, and I tried their Mexicana Tsokolate which is hot chocolate infused with cinnamon and chili. Yes. Chili. It was actually pretty good for me but I don’t reckon it is for all taste buds since it gives off a weird after taste which reminds me of Mediterranean food. It’s a must try for every adventure-seeking tongue. Anyway, the only reason I wanted to hang out at Mary Grace was because of their lemon squares. I could eat them all day, everyday, I swear. I got my boyfriend’s mother a box for her birthday and I kinda felt bad that I didn’t get myself a box as well… LOL So, yeah… We spent a lazy Saturday afternoon at Mary Grace sipping on raspberry iced tea and munching on sweets. It’s moments like these that make life seem so much brighter despite all the stress that comes along.

I wore a simple casual peplum top with skinny jeans since I had a date with Chavs after my rendezvous with friends. I make it a point to be as simple as I can be whenever I am going to see him since he makes such a fuss over my clothing 😐

Nevertheless I think my outfit was quite fitting for “high tea”

Can’t Really Think Of A Particularly Good Title For This One…

I woke up early just to find out that our professor wasn’t going to show up so that was kind of a bummer. Don’t you just hate it when that happens? You could’ve woken up minutes later for crying out loud. So, anyway, we went to Starbucks just to let time pass till we could go back to school in time for our next class. And then after that we went back to Starbucks to chill (I swear they make so much money from me. Ehem Starbucks people…Discount naman o LOL I’m a regular customer at Glorietta 4 LOL). So, yeah…This is such a short and not to mention boring post. Bear with me and please don’t hate me. That’s really all that happened. I guess people are just too busy because of thesis lately, thus the days get more boring everyday.

What I wore:


I was hoping that it’ll be windy when we took pictures because the skirt would’ve looked divine but unfortunately it started getting windy hours after we took pictures… LOL Fail
