2016: A Year in Review

2017 is already peaking right around the corner and I am so ready for him to arrive! 2016 had been a bust and I know I am not alone in feeling this way, amaryt? But despite all the bad things that happened this year, I believe the good things still outweighed them all. I've ridden one heck of …

Zamboanga City | Fort Pilar and Paseo Del Mar

It was one October night when my mom told me of her wish of us hopefully spending Christmas in her hometown this year. We were deep in conversation about family and heart matters when she opened up the subject. After that night, I was determined to grant what she desired to give her happiness this…

The Random Bibliophile's First Ever [Birthday] Giveaway!

I'm turning 23 in 6 days and to celebrate, I decided to host my first ever giveaway! (*silly dance*) Since I switched to Blogger last May, I have been really working so hard to better this little corner of mine. I was genuinely surprised that a number of people can relate to my blog, that you …

It's finally Christmas Eve eve and I am so happy to be where I am right now!

I am a fan of movies (have been and will always be). May it be romantic comedies, chick flicks, love stories, comedies, animated films (Disney woot-woot!), dramas, serious movies, inspirational, biographies, fantasies, horrors, greek mythologies, you name it, I'd love to watch it if the trailer…

A Letter to Santa

Dear Mr. Claus (or should it be Mr. Nicholas?),

I'm going to be formal here coz I'm all grown up and I don't want to sound like a giddy kid who cannot wait for Christmas Day (although I totally am).

It's been a long time since I've written a letter for you, let alone thought of …

Christmas has always been dear to me. It's the season of love and giving, a season of hope and faith. I particularly love celebrating this holiday with my family. Every year we have always gathered together to thank the Lord for all the blessings He has showered upon us. Every Christmas was di…

Not Your Ordinary Christmas Playlist

For the past few days, I've been trying to build up on what I think would be the "perfect" Christmas playlist for me. I wanted it to start slow and mysterious and solemn, and then it would just bloom and boom into that glorious festive Christmassy feel.

I've been listening to it s…

The Happy List: November Edition ❤

My old happy, carefree self is slowly coming back and I have God and some people to thank for this change in mood and perspective! The start of December was so good, I've had a true smile plastered on my face since the first. I hope these good vibes won't wear off until the end. Christmas …

My Christmas Wishlist 2016

I don't usually post wishlists because I'm really not into sharing these kinds of stuff, but I will make an exception this time because it's December! 😁 So I've thought up of items I would love to have, maybe not just for this Christmas, but for the next year(s) to come. Some item…

Things to Look Forward to this December 2016
