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”

Sup, Superman?

Bet you were all expecting the excessively worn statement tee with the famous S branded right on the middle, weren’t you? Unfortunately I had another Superman rendition in mind. Everyone’s enamored by the handsome, villain-bashing hunk that is Superman but I think his civilian secret identity is missing out on all the love. I think Clark Kent is undeniably the perfect example to the popular phrase, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Plus I think his whole introverted and mild-mannered personality makes him all the more interesting. Oh and I totally dig his geek chic look, don’t you? Thus the outfit I wore to a little reunion with our friend, Tricia.

Tricia and her guy...hihi

We had a VERY late lunch at Burger Bar in Greenbelt

Three broke girls! Reunited at long last!

My Clark Kent-inspired outfit LOL Plus it was kind of humid that day (Very typical Manila weather) so I thought a crisp White shirt would be comfortable



Wore my “hairy” charmed loafers from So Fab. Very versatile. In fact, it’s so versatile I wear them with my school uniform. Daily.

High-waisted shorts from Freeway

Happy Weekend to all of you! 😀

Mini Reunion at Red Box

We all meet friends here and there as we slowly tread the road we call life. Some meet a lot and some meet a few. Some friends are new, some friends are old. Some friends we see everyday, and some we barely see. Some friends walk out of our life and some we keep for life. Nonetheless, they’re all friends. Friends who have made, who are making, and who will continue to make a huge impact in our lives. Friends who have somehow made us into who we are now. A certain Saturday made me thankful of the friendships I’ve made in my short 19 years of existence. Some turned their backs on me, some changed me, some accepted me and some loved me. Nevertheless all of them I consider friends because each of them contributed to the chapters that make up my life.

I’m glad to have found these friends of mine

We had a mini reunion at RedBox, Greenbelt. We had unending laughs and conversations. It was not like we haven’t seen each other in such a long time. But we have not seen each other for long. And that’s the beauty of this kind of bond. It’s the kind of bond that strengthens even as time passes by. I hope we get to do this again 🙂

A quintessential outfit post but of course…

lace top from Forever 21, jeans from Paige

statement necklace from Forever 21… Never regretted buying this necklace as it instantly glamorizes any simple outfit.

Wedges from So Fab

watch from Aldo. This is by far my favorite timepiece as it has changeable straps…

Hope you all enjoyed your weekends! Until next time!
