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”

The Big Chill

So, this is where it all starts; all the long nights, the restlessness, and not to mention, the stress: Thesis. Our topic about social media and political marketing just got approved last week and we maximized our time left by procrastinating and just being our usual easy-go-lucky selves. Today is the day we start cracking. My partner, Aey, and I have already done a few parts for chapter one and we’re positive we’re going to finish this chapter by Saturday. And then it’s off to start with chapter two. I’ve never felt so pressured in my entire life. No kidding.

We spent most of the day at Big Chill in Greenbelt 3, supposedly getting work done but unfortunately, katamaran pops up its ugly head, as usual, and we ended up chilling at big chill. Well sort of. We did start working, we just didn’t finish lol. So, anyway, I hope all works out well in the end. Wish us luck and pray for us pretty please? Huhu

What I wore to our “thesis “sesh:

I wore a simple yet elegant and, not to mention, breezy sheer top and a bandage skirt. The oversized black bag also looked quite well with the overall look. Remember what Tyra Banks always said in the Tyra show, “If you want to look expensive, wear Black.” and I agree. Would you believe me if I told you the bag’s from Landmark and it costs less than a thousand?
