High Heels are Crazy but Women Love Them!



I am a woman of no exemptions to loving high heels. It’s ridiculous! How many women complained about having back problems and still managed to walk on high heels. Well okay, I just took a photo with these booties but still I walked on them from inside the house to the outside. LOL! Oh I wore them once during a Christmas party last year. I guess there won’t be any show off of these heels no more on parties and stuffs because husband said they are so high I am almost as tall as him now. 😀 But I love them! I will tell you a famous story about a former first lady in the Philippines who owned more than 3000 pair of shoes. That is a lot! Do you wonder how she was able to keep all of those shoes? In one expensive house-like-closet probably. But what keeps popping on my mind, how many of those shoes were HIGH HEELS? 1500 pairs Maybe? 😀

Happy Easter!


Hello! Today was gloomy although it wasn’t cold. It made me feel nostalgic of how we celebrate holy week in the Philippines. I remember it was always raining. I say, yes I miss celebrating holidays in my country. But today I had to go to work, tomorrow I will too. Things had definitely changed for me. But everything is all good. There is always a rough spot along the way, but nothing that me, my husband and HIM can’t handle. This Easter, I would like to say, always see the good in everyone. Because at the end of the day, we all need some saving. Sometimes.

Happy Easter!

Surviving in the USA!




Hi everyone! I would like to steal a few seconds of your time reading this post. So now, I would like to introduce myself formally. I am Rhea and I came from the Philippines. A year and 5 months ago, I moved from my country to live with my husband here in the United States. Living away from my family is the hardest part in the first few months. I didn’t know how to drive, didn’t have friends, didn’t have a job. I was basically and totally dependent on my husband. So there were times when I was so frustrated, depressed and lonely. It was a consecutive 2 months that I was missing my country terribly. I said to myself, that wasn’t me. I am undeniably a happy person all the time. I needed to get my driver’s license real soon and know my way around. And I did! So for all the new immigrants in the USA who are hoping to get their driver’s license one day, I have some things to say to you.

1. Get your driver’s manual. Read it. Read it again. And again!

2. Understand the rules of the road. Then, get your student permit.

3. Don’t be upset if you feel scared to get on the wheels the first time. It’s normal.

4. Practice with someone who is authorized to be in the car with you or with your husband. Don’t feel bad if he yells at you because it takes you forever to know how to parallel park.

5. Practice again. Don’t give up until you become comfortable and ready to take your practical exam.

Paradise in the Desert!


Hello again fabulous people! Today was in the 50’s, back to the chilly kind of weather again but the sun was showing making it, “okay weather ” for me. The husband asked me to follow him at the car shop where he dropped his car for some oil change but then, told me beforehand, we are going to have a lunch date somewhere. Somewhere!


And you know, as usual, I said okay, let me dress up and even if it was kind of chilly, I still opted for a dress, put on a red jacket and some heels. I didn’t know exactly where we were going. And when we arrived at the place, I was like, ohhh! It was kind of a smaller city within a city. He brought me to this breath taking place, the Oasis of Texas! And for someone who lives an hour away from Austin, it was already an amazing date for me because all you see in my city are trees and houses. LOL!


So before going in, here I am again, taking pictures for my blog. Camera ready, prepare the flash!




So this is the restaurant, on top of the hill. Overlooking Lake Travis. Isn’t it gorgeous? It was 3 pm when we arrived so the area wasn’t crowded and I am wondering if it ever gets really crowded because it’s huge.



I wanted to wait for the sunset but the husband wanted to beat the rush hour and it was really chilly up there especially if the wind was blowing although there were heater lamps all around. I thought it would be so romantic to watch the sunset with your loved one and sipping a perfect margarita in a chilly twilight.


It was not a lot of food choices in the menu though. I think they could have done better with the food. I chose to order some chicken and beef fajita and husband chose the grilled red fish. The taste was ok. It was nothing extra ordinary.


I still love the view regardless. 🙂 I hope you too guys. See you again on my next post. Have a good night!

Royal Love!


How can you not love a royal blue? For me, it’s a color that suits everybody. It’s bright, yet it’s soft. It falls under my favorite colors category. I opt to find some more cute clothes in this color. 🙂


This outfit was worn when husband and I did our taxes last friday. My shoes just arrived from thursday. They are so cute and light. I was so delighted to have received them. Like I was a kid in the candy store. 😀

The Girl Who Wished It’s Cherry Blossoms!



I’ve heard of cherry blossoms, I’ve seen pictures of them, I’ve heard from people who have seen it in person how beautiful it is. And this small tree with flowers all over its branches always captures me everytime I see it. It makes me dream of cherry blossoms. It makes me dream of travelling in the spring time to Japan where they grew abundantly. Well, I have a wonderful and a good friend in Japan, maybe one day my dream will come true. 😀 Don’t you think you wanna visit Japan too?

Sunlight in my Face!


Hi! I woke up late today because I had spent the whole night last night shopping online. But I ended up purchasing nothing. Zero. I woke up today thinking what a waste of time that was! So I hurried up to take a shower and ran to my closet, digging up clothes that I haven’t even worn yet. And I ended up trying this timing piece I got from Amazon a few months ago. I looked at the backyard, the grass starting to grow back and the little yellow grass flowers are now showing a little bit too. So okay, camera ready, let’s try a pose. Another pose. And another same pose. LOL! It felt good to feel the sunlight in my face. It gives me a familiar morning scenario back in the Philippines, when in the morning, 90% at all times, the sun is showing unless of course if the weather is bad.



My outfit, Timing Dress from Amazon, The webster cardigan from Target. I hope you enjoyed this post. See you again next time, fabulous people!

She’s just a girl, but she’s on fire!


When I turned on the radio, Alicia Keys’ song was played. It dawned on me that I want to relate with the song, not literally but with a deep and enormous idea of a girl on fire. A girl who puts passion in what she does. A girl burning with desire. A desire for something, which could be anything actually. 🙂


My outfit, is just basically, anything and everything in my closet. As you know now, my closet is full of skirts. This is an old navy skirt, I paired with forever21 wedge booties, the top I don’t remember where I got, probably online, a jacket is thrifted and a DKNY messenger bag plus a steve madden sunnies.

Have a fruitful week everyone!~

You Think of Reaching Your Dreams Like Walking On A Bridge!


Hello again! I really don’t know how to further elaborate the title of my post. Hmm…I am just inspired by looking at the photos because for me, reaching one’s dreams in life is like walking on a bridge. You really don’t know how sturdy the bridge is but if you want to discover, taste and experience what awaits for you on the other side,  you will take the risk of continuing your steps until you reach the end of that bridge. 🙂



My outfit for this post, boyfriend shirt (old), Spring leggings by Rue21, Wedge Sneakers from Amazon. I hope again that you enjoyed this post guys. I will see you next time. Muah!
