Long Lost and Forgotten

Since I got discharged from the hospital, I wasn't able to go home in our house in Malabon. Although we attempted to go home last Monday, the heavy rains and flood did not permit us, so we (my mom, lola and I) decided to stay here at my fiance's house in QC. Earlier this morning, we also attempted to go home but failed. We were already near Bayan ng Malabon when we learned that we have to walk to an ankle deep flood just to ride a jeep going home. Since my lola is concerned with my health, she decided that I comeback here in Paolo's house and continue my bed rest here. (Although my lola and cousin pushed through and went home.
Posted on Instagram. I was good and ready to go earlier! I miss home so much!!

And since I am stuck here at Paolo's house, I went over his files so as to see if there are stuff that I can blog about. My laptop, SLR and memory stick are left at home so I couldn't blog about the Jewelmer & Belle de Jour event I attended a couple of Saturdays ago. So here I am, infront of Paolo's desktop, thinking what to write about.
Luckily, I was able to find long lost outfit shots taken a year ago. I am posting them here so you can see how I normally dress up at work (and some casual affairs) and why I did not bother posting it on my blog before AND HOW I GAINED WEIGHT IN A SPAN OF 6 MONTHS!!

Seeing the photos made me realize how much weight I gained since last year. I apologize for the ugly skin too. (Lol!!) And if you're wondering why I did not publish the photos on my blog, its either I forgot about it or I found the photos / outfit not good enough to be posted (or am I just underestimating myself?)

Your thoughts will be appreciated :)

Much Love,

PS: I can't wait to go home and blog about a lot of things I captured / attended / photographed the weekend before getting sick. I wish I can go home na tomorrow!


Awesome outfits girl! You do have a knack for fashion! Keep it up! And I guess even if you have gained a little weight, you would still look fab, maybe even a lot sexier. ;)

I hope you're ok now. Have the floods subsided in your area?
I like the black polka-dotted top and skirt ensemble with the gray cardigan. That's something I could wear to work.
You can wear anything and still look gorgeous, that's what I think :)
Ang cute nung 'Top: Paolo's Mom' :D
Hope things get better out there so you can finally go home
