Bonjour! College has been keeping me busy lately. I just survived my first ever midterms and thank God I am done with it. So far, college has been nice....? It's a bit stressful once in a while especially when there are groupworks and all-nighters, but at least I survived it haha.
Long time no post, ey? I've been very busy lately, running errands for my mom (
big girl na naks). My grandmother passed away recently so I'm helping my relatives to fix some papers and stuff. Plus college is just around the corner! Aside from creeping the hashag #BenildeFroshTips on twitter, I've been talking to my blockmates. They're very lovely people and I can't wait to meet them!
I've been dealing with a lot of drama for the past few days/weeks *cough* one direction *cough* anyway... I'm loving their new single Drag Me Down and I'm so proud of them. Congratulations to Louis for hosting the Cinderella Ball, you boys never fail to make me proud.
I'm also stressing over what to wear to school + college school supplies. My school has a really strict dress code (
parang high school lang ulit HAHAHAHA) so I need to save up money to buy cute clothes (or I can just borrow some from my mom's closet hehe). I'm a sucker for nice/cute/adorable/beautiful school supplies (bless u muji and nbs), I tend to buy stuff I don't actually need so I made a list of the important stuff I need. I have to stop looking at online catalogues so that I'd stop adding things to my wish list ugh. It's been a while since I last passed by Muji and bought some things like their pens and highlighters. I'll be saving up for their 2016 planners because they look hella rad and simple. It's easier to organize and it looks really nice! (plus points for the look!!!!)
All the love,
One month until school starts! I'm trying to be as productive as possible (
watching different series and concerts, listening to new music, improving my photoshop skillz, reading books and fanfics while working out and being lazy) so that I won't end up regretting being lazy during the 5 months of being stress-free and school-less lol. Here are some of the things that I've been loving this month!
Sweater weather is finally back in Manila! I love the fact that I can finally shop and wear cardigans, hoodies and sweaters without sweating hahaha.
The playlist includes covers of my favorite songs and songs by some of my favorite artists.
Birdy / Lorde / Halsey / The 1975 and a whole lot more!
I'll be adding more songs as the days go by so stay tuned!
All the love,
Just a bunch of One Direction fanfics from wattpad!

Hello! Top 5 Tuesday is a new blog series!
Hello! As you all know, I love watching concerts online (via youtube), live performances are something I adore because it (
sometimes or most of the time) shows how good an artist is without the auto tune or all. It's a turn on for me if I the artist can sing good live. I love the vibe that concerts give out, especially if the crowd is good. I love it when the crowd sings along and you can see that the performer/s are amazed with what's happening around them. Anyway, these are my favorite performances.
Hello! This a new blog series called Mantra Monday. Every Monday (hopefully), I'll be posting slogans that can you can live by.

It's been a month (and 2 days) since I saw my fave boys *cries a little*, I didn't take a lot of photos/videos during the concert because me and my friends were busy recording voice memos. Anyway, here are some photos I took during the concert!
More photos down the cut!

Hello! It's been awhile since I posted something here. I've been uninspired lately and I got lazy *sigh* buy hey I'm back! I gave my blog a new look, lately I've been obsessed with watercolors and viola! New stuff yay. I can't wait to write about my favorite month of the year (so far) and a few other things. As of the moment, I'm still fixing my blog. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it soon. Anyway, I changed the name of my blog from Free Spirited to Lumiere. Been obsessed with it ever since I saw Ed, the way he sings Lumiere gives me goosebumps. :)
(enjoy the photo because I love flamingoes)

2014 was a crazy year! It's the year where I learned a lot of important lessons and I promised myself that these lessons won't be ignored. "Change is inevitable" and somewhere in 2014 I was able to prove that to myself. People come and go, I am very thankful for the once who stayed with me. As time goes by, I learned to stay away from people who were "toxic" and treasured the ones that stayed. Can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for me, hopefully more of the good stuff. Anyway, here's a list of the important things I learned in 2014.
Change is inevitable
- "gasgas na yan beh" / Pretty sure you heard the word "inevitable" a lot of times during 2014 and we can all thank TFIOS for that. 2014 went by pretty fast that I barely noticed the changes that happened to me. But looking back, I'd say I changed a lot. Some good, some bad but hey! I'm pretty sure I'll be better by the end of the year.
You can cry all you want, just make sure you come back
- There are days where you just think that you've reached rock bottom. It's just good to lie in bed, cry, eat a lot of ice cream, cry again, listen to good music and sleep (or you can also watch some good movies or some series). Don't force yourself to work or do homework (you would probably regret doing this but I swear this is a good idea), just promise yourself that you won't mope around and that you'll do better.
- Overthinking kills and will stop you from doing what you really want to do. Distract yourself and prove to yourself that you can do it! (yaaay)
No regrets - take it or leave it
- This is something I managed to live out. I remembered a cousin of mine telling me "You're in Manila!!! Anything is possible here." but 9 (or 10) year old me just ignored it. A lot of opportunities are out there, if you want to do something go do it! You'll end up having "what ifs" if you don't do it. Live a little okay?
