Fall…ing

So it’s cold. Not happy about it. But I am thankful that Nick and I were able to enjoy our last summer day on Saturday by swimming in Lake Washington. A friend of ours invited us out on his boat for a day and we were of course pretty excited as always to be on the water.

Not only did he take us out in his boat but we were able to take a ride on his scooters. Which was pretty fun since I haven’t been on one since I was 11 years old.

When I was young, my cousin’s dad had a motorbike, a scooter, and a 3 wheeler. It was all for us cousins to ride in around the subdivision where they lived. Since I was the youngest girl, I rode the 3 wheeler with another cousin, who’s the youngest boy. What’s funny was, we were the youngest and we were on the most dangerous ride. Go figure. It was fun though. We just had to make sure we didn’t do any turns quickly or else the 3 wheeler motorbike would be on top of us in a second. Those were good times. Makes me smile remembering all the things we did. We thought we were so cool. Revving the engines of the bikes to make sure other people heard it. We were just on the bikes riding around with no destination to go to really. I loved that.

And since it’s fall. It’s also time for shopping. Not that I need new clothes every season. But who says I can’t enjoy putting stuff together on polyvore just to see how things look?

If you’ve known me for a while, you’ll notice that I dress comfortably. I still believe in being stylish of course. But comfort is of high importance. So it’s pretty rare that you’ll see me in heels. If you do want to see me in heels, invite me to your wedding.

For this boyish sexy look, you’ll notice how loose the outfit is. Which is totally me. I used to wear a lot of tight tops. I feel that I am over that now. I haven’t been buying anything tight since last year. I’ve also been giving my old tight tops to Goodwill since I don’t see myself wearing them anymore.

I am not a fan of the cold weather, but fall is beautiful. And I get to wear boots again!

Any good suggestions on rain boots? My Rocketdog rain boots died on me after 3 months of use. Note to everyone, don’t buy their rain boots!

Night Out

My take on booties and blazers. 🙂 I didn’t feel like busting out my DSLR. HAHA! I just wanted a quick shot.

Forever 21 blazer, I don’t remember where I got my red top, hand me down Filipino skirt from my mom, Target socks and booties from Report. Accessories from the Philippines of course.

Befriending the Treadmill

I surprised myself because I have been using the treadmill a lot lately. For those of you that don’t know me. I hate running. Before, I’d say I hate it with a passion. Now it’s pretty much like, getting to know a person I didn’t like in the beginning ’cause that person was intimidating and now we’re ok. I mean it’s true right? Sometimes, there are people you think are so intimidating or arrogant ’cause of how they carry themselves. But once you get to know them, you’re like “Oh, that person’s pretty awesome. I actually like hanging out with that person.”

I usually use the elliptical at the gym, until I got bored. I wanted a challenge. I have been avoiding the treadmill for quite some time now. But once I tried it. I am slowly liking it.

And because it seems that I am slowly getting serious with the time and distance of my run, I decided it was best to get  better running shoes that won’t hurt my knees or shins. I kind of have a knee problem. I have no idea why, it’s not major, but I claim in Jesus name that it will disappear.

For my birthday, I had asked Nick that I would like anything I can wear to the gym, and that of course included new running shoes. I got these new babies over the weekend and test drove them last night. The one in the photo is different from what I have. Instead of it being all black and silver, I got the ones that are black and sky blue. I’ll take a photo sometime soon. But not now. The shoes are very comfortable and cushiony. Which is exactly what I need for my feet.

Let’s see where this whole running thing goes. For now, I am enjoying it. I’m mixing up my workout that way I can see the results that I want in no time.

How’s your workout going?

Shirt & Watch

I know I haven’t shared this with you guys but check out the other Christmas gift I got from Nick.

Shirt from Nick

I guess he wants everyone to know that I love him. But don’t they all know that already?

I wore the shirt after my workout today and when I got back to work, my coworker gave me a funny look.  Yeah… I’ll shut up now.

I’m glad I got to use my Nooka Watch today.  It’s waterproof and very light.  So I was able to check the time while I was on the treadmill. Making sure that I did my crazy workout in 30 minutes then back to work.

I still haven’t figured out how to use the timer though. That way I can time my reps during workout.

Wet Seal

There are only a few stores that I buy stuff from when I shop online and one of them is Wet Seal.  I buy tops and dresses from Wet Seal and I’m happy that everything that I have bought actually fits me. Just perfect for my petite size. I haven’t had to return anything at all.

I remember my first purchase from Urban Outfitters last year, the dress that I got was not true to the size that was advertised.  So I just gave it to my cousin.

I think it’s great news that Wet Seal is finally doing international shipping.  I think my Manila friends would love this, so go check out the international page for your future purchases.
