Cheers to my best friend/partner-in-crime/role model/idol/superhero/greatest inspiration.

I’m not a good daughter, I’ll give you that. I rebel, I’m a spoiled brat, I sulk whenever I don’t get what I want, I curse, I give the stink eye, I throw tantrums, I slam doors, I talk back, I’m lazy. I’m normal. 

And my mom doesn’t deserve all that.  She’s everything you ever want in a mom. She’s the “cool mom”. My mom and dad got married at the ripe age of 22, so I have a wonderful set of parents that keeps up with the changes of our generation. They have cooler phones than I have. They both have Facebook accounts. My mom has Twitter, while I don’t. My mom blogs. Sometimes, she comes home at midnight due to parties and dinners with her friends. I’m blessed to have parents that wants to read The Hunger Games, loves The Avengers with a passion, and loves to buy me books because it means that they can buy books too.

My mom doesn’t deserve a daughter like me. I’m the complete opposite of her. Whenever we fight, she always starts with, “Nung bata ako.. hindi ako..” and it makes me feel ashamed to be her daughter, someone she’s not proud to have.

But you know what? I’ll be that daughter. The daughter with high grades, not for my sake, but to make my parents proud. Because that’s the daughter they deserve. Someone they can be proud of. 🙂

So to celebrate Mother’s Day, this is for you mommy!

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.

Shopping with my mother is fuuun! I was always reluctant to ask my mom to buy me stuff because I know we weren’t rich, just well-off. Except for books. Books are always special to us, and sometimes I wouldn’t hesitate picking one off a shelf and begging my mom to “please, please, please!” buy me the darn book whenever we hit the mall.

Clothes and accessories are a different story altogether. Whenever I need to go to a party (birthday or otherwise), or any event, I guess that’s the only time that I would ask my mom to take me shopping, especially this time in my life wherein a whole lot of my batchmates were having their debuts!

So when my mom treated me to a shopping spree, wow, it’s a spree indeed! Trekked off to Festival Mall when my mom clocked off work.

Found these at a mini bazaar in the mall (And I mean mini bazaar. There are, like, less than 10 stalls)

 My mom and I bought shirts at Penshoppe! Hers was the ‘Born to Inspire’ shirt, which, in my opinion, is totally true. She inspires me to be the best I can be everyday. Mine is the v-neck shirt with sequined pocket. Pretty boring compared to hers but I love the detail!

Satin shorts at Bench. I just love the sequined waistband!

Pretty bow at the back!

A black sheer button-up top and tan satin shorts with scalloped details at Preppy!

A pair of floral t-strap sandals from Celine. Perfect for the beach! I can’t wait to try these at Palawan this summer. Gaaah

Coral lipstick from Etude House!
My mom said that I was always wearing pink and red lippies, so I decided to buy something orange-y for a change. (Oh and by the way, my horoscope at Candy Magazine said that a “scarlet lip stain” and “red items” are my favorites! Which is so true.)

 Striped top with a Peter Pan collar and a feather necklace from Genevieve Gozum!
GG will never fail to be one of my favorite shops to visit. Their products are affordable yet classy, and they always update their stocks with the latest trends!

New sunnies from Hawaiian Sun (found in Robinson’s)
My mom told me to buy that because I’d look like a gasp celebrity!

New bikini from Sassa!

 

A pair of pink and floral beach shorts, lace cover-up, and cutie patootie orange bikini tote bag! Izzo cuuuuuute. All from Robinson’s Dept. Store!

Cute heart-printed skirt at Candie’s! It was also available in pink, but I think the blue matches more clothes in my closet, thus more practical. I love the bow in the waistband!

More photos (where we ate, etc.) soon!

Ciao!
