24 Things to Do When I Turn 24.

Here I am again, making yet another list. I'm turning another year older soon and I've been thinking of the things I want to do when I turn 24.
  1. Go on a trip on my own (Batanes? Palawan? Marinduque? Hehehehe...)
  2. Organize my closet (Need to get rid of some old stuff to make room for new ones)
  3. Buy one gadget I really love (Come on, laptop!)
  4. Watch a play (Cats! Lea Salonga! Here I come! Hahahaha)
  5. Go to a spa (Because I seriously need one)
  6. Start writing a book (Because I think this would be the best time to write something that I hope will get published one day)
  7. Reconnect with a childhood friend (Ate Iris, we seriously need to see each other soon!)
  8. Go on a weekend retreat (It's something I do every year)
  9. Swap books with a friend (Since I don't really have the time to go out and buy them, hehe)
  10. Start a travel blog (It's something I've been thinking about since last year)
  11. Buy a friend coffee (Just one good deed to do for someone)
  12. Buy a new pair of shoes (Something to wear for special occasions, hahaha!)
  13. Try out a new cuisine (Hmmm...Where to?)
  14. Record an album (Just for fun, hehe)
  15. Ice skate at the SM Mall of Asia ice skating rink (It's been far too long since I did this)
  16. Go bowling (Because I miss it already)
  17. Go out of town with friends (Because we need a break from work)
  18. Wear my knee-high boots (Probably when the rainy season comes)
  19. Go somewhere abroad (Since I'm having my passport renewed this month)
  20. Take random pictures everyday (It's a hard feat to accomplish but I'm going to do it)
  21. Have a flatter tummy (Because I really need to)
  22. Hug a friend (Just because)
  23. Go on a photo shoot and be the model (Calling Wacky? Hahaha)
  24. Go on a date (Hopefully with someone I really like)
I can do this, yeah!


38 Days. A Wishlist.

In just 38 days, I will be celebrating my 24th birthday. Oh yes -- I am turning a year older in a little over a month and I can't wait till that day comes. I don't know what's come over me that I'm looking forward to my birthday with so much excitement. I guess I'm just very much grateful for all the blessings I've received for the past year that I have no doubt that this year is just going to be as great, if not greater, than before.

So, for today, I am posting my birthday wishlist.

clothing apparel

Most of you know that I love clothes! And yes, it doesn't really hurt if I want some more of nice clothes. And right now, I'm really loving the styles shown above. Hehehe.

colored stockings

Suddenly, I've been getting to urge to buy colored stockings. I was thinking of leggings but when I once wore leggings, I didn't like the feeling. Hahaha! Weird, I know. But I really like the colored stockings when I saw them.

Maybelline cosmetics

I absolutely love Maybelline cosmetic products! And if the giver would think what Maybelline product I'd like, I hope to get the Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals B.B. Cream, or Maybelline Perfect Concealer or the Maybelline Pure Foundation Mineral.

The Body Shop

Obviously, I like mineral cosmetics since it's smoother, more natural and long-lasting than regular make up. From The Body Shop is Nature's Mineral Cheek Colour and I have to say, it's absolutely divine!

Starbucks tumbler

When did the Starbucks tumbler ever leave my list? Hahaha! I just love collecting them. No, I don't have lots of it. I have two. But I wouldn't really mind adding another one to my "collection."

The Bridges of Madison County

It's absolutely one of my most favorite romance stories of all time! Ever since I watched it when movies were still on VHS tapes, I just fell in love with it. Now, The Bridges of Madison County DVD is a must-have for me. I've been looking for it everywhere and can't find a copy. Always out of stock. Can somebody please buy this one for me?

Fly Shades

I recently lost my one and only pair of shades of 5 years during a trip with friends so now I'm hoping to get a new one. The Kelly or Mackay shades from Fly Shades are really nice.


Shoes will forever be a part of my favorite things! I'm running out of footwear with heels so I'm hoping to get a pair or two. Hahaha! Nice flat sandals would also do. They need not be from Fifliarina or M. Nicole. They just have to be comfortable shoes to wear. Shoes that don't break easily. Hehehe. Remember, I'm a size 9.


Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker and Elizabeth Arden Green Tea are two of my favorite perfumes! Though I'm currently using Lancome's Oui, I do hope that I'd get either of them. Hehe.


I've had my "Margie" necklace for two years now and I love every bit of it. This may be a little over the top...but can I have a necklace that says "Maggie"? Hehehe... I really want to have that.

Well, there you go. My birthday wishlist...


I can't wait till I turn 24!
