Friday’s 10 Happy Things | 6

imageFriday’s 10 Happy Things is a blog link-up by Helga. Here, we list the things that made us smile (or even laugh).

This week was a bit tough because of work. There was this rollercoaster of disappointments, stress, and then suddenly finding the motivation to work, and then losing that motivation again. I can’t help but sing Annie’s It’s a Hard-knock Life ha ha

  •  Keeping quiet to keep myself from whining. I knew myself enough that if I started mouthing my feelings, I’d be even more upset. So I zipped it. And it worked!
  • Sweater + boots weather. I’ve been wearing my Rusty Lopez boots for the past four days because… I can.
  • Progress at our platform. Mario gave me a pep-talk regarding the loss of motivation. His advice was simple: do what you need to do, don’t worry about all the other stuff for now. I sometimes wonder what I did in my past life to deserve this understanding and kind man.
  • Home-cooked rainy day food — chicken arroz caldo, sopas, champorado and dilis. Yummmm
  • Better eyebrow days — I’m getting the hang of drawing in my eyebrows. I’m running out of my eyebrow pencil, though. Can anyone recommend a good, cheap pencil? I am currently using Etude House Drawing Eye Brow, and I want to try other brands.
  • Catching up on Grey’s Anatomy. Hands down, this is my favorite TV series. But I kind of stopped watching after season 6. It’s nice to see Mer and Christina and the whole gang again!
  • Trying out a new makeup remover. Well, it’s not really a makeup remover, it’s Human Nature’s sunflower oil, which I have had for forever. I bought cotton pads on our last grocery run and tried to remove my eye makeup with this, and it works like heaven! I didn’t need to rub hard and it doesn’t sting my eyes.
  • Happier bath time with Sanji. We finally decided to bathe him while sitting up (as opposed to him lying down on his bath mesh), and he’s happier. I mean, he has always loved bath time, but he loves it even more! I get wet too because he slaps the water, but that just adds to the fun.
  • Cooking my ~signature~ crabstick with oyster sauce omelette. When Mario and I were still boy/girl-friend, I always cook this for him. I stopped eating crabstick when I got pregnant. And we only bought this again this week. I forgot how yummy this is!
  • Realizing that my life has purpose. Mario and I were talking the other day about how if we had been married first before having kids, we would have been eating out / shopping / drinking / chilling everyday. And we just both said, yeah that was really fun… but what we have now is so much better.

Hope you guys had a meaningful week! And if you had a tough one, never forget that it always gets better. It’s a bad week, not a bad life!

P.S. Don’t forget to comment about your favorite eyebrow pencil! Halp!

  1. I don’t have a favorite eyebrow pencil coz I don’t use any make-up. 😦

    This weather is really something, I’ve been craving for arroz caldo, champorado, lomi, or sopas.

  2. The last one sort of made me kilig, I don’t know why, but I’m so happy for you! I always find that sharing your struggles with your partner always make it a lot easier.

    Also, I just recently used make-up (ha, first timer!) and I find drawing in my eyebrows the fun part! I had my eyebrows done in the salon for the first time so I could just shave (? idk the term) it to make it look neat. I don’t use pencil though, I use IN2IT’s eyebrow powder, and it looks marvelous 🙂

    • It does lighten the weight, especially when your partner is understanding! 🙂 it’s my first time too to delve into the makeup world and eyebrow drawing is also one of my favorites (the other one is brushing in lipstick)

      Thanks for the recommendation! I’ll definitely look into it! 🙂
