current obsessions wednesday: like the energizer bunny but with blue legs instead of pink ones.


 top: an oldie but goodie, can't remember where from / skirt: target / belt: f21
tights: hue / shoes: madden girl, belk / nails: OPI jade is the new black

it has been one of the gloomiest and rainiest weeks that we've had in a long time. 
but it hasn't kept me down. like the energizer bunny, i keep going and going and going...

and so we keep on truckin' - even here on da blog with this week's current obsession wednesday! 
holla! aren't you proud of me?
i'm still sticking true to the no-shopping for awhile rule but i did cave on a little window shopping. hasn't hurt me yet (tortured a little maybe) but not hurt. 

platforms like it's the 70's.


trying to fight this desire for platforms like no other.
i had my share of platforms in high school and where did they go?
donated or thrown away...like the trend.
yet here they are, back in my face like that last cookie in the cookie jar that you know you shouldn't have but want. let's see how long i last.

hunger games obsession continues.


ever since miss lauren mentioned the fab dudes auditioning for the peeta/gale roles on her blog/twitter, she got me all pumped all over agiain about the hunger games. not that it takes much to get me pumped up over one of the greatest teen fic eva, but it def. fueled the fire! so  i personally wish that whoever is casting the movie picked no-name actors for the roles but with those that have auditioned, these two are my picks - lucas till for peeta, drew roy for gale. summer 2012, you are way too far away from me. 

filipino desserts.


this filipino dessert known as puto defintely hit the spot yesterday when mom made them. so perfect for a cold, rainy day - these come out hot and fresh. i think its like eating butter but light and fluffier and oh so sweet! it's even better with little drizzle of filipino caramel. i may or may not have eaten 12 of them yesterday. oops. 

whatcha obsessin' over these days?

much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]

p.s. we got a rockin' giveaway going on here by Amanda Lynne Designs!

  4. Your umbrella is so cute! Haha you're doing better on your spending ban than I am. But I'm trying really really hard! Those desserts your mom made were really good! I probably ate 12 of them myself that day! I didn't try them with caramel! Probably a good thing! Haha. Yeah for more Hunger Games! ;-)

  7. Oh I love puto! Soo good. I love it when they are pastel coloured (not that it changes the taste but they are pretty).

    You look adorable. And I like your umbrella!

    As for Hunger Games I'm forever in love. I'm starting to like Lucas Till. I was a Hunter Parrish fan because I've seen so many good fan art. But I don't mind Lucas. x

  31. Oh that PUTO looks delicious! I'm so jealous of how you "pull off" your blue tights... I could only dream of being able to do that ;)

  32. I will forever be sad that I passed on the Danys when I saw them for cheap at the Rack!

  33. one of my closest friends is filipino and I LOVED all the desserts her mom would make! really everything was delicious though. I'd go over in high school for a major food fest :)

  34. So it looks like Josh Hutcheson will be playing Peeta. Not sure if I agree with this. Liam Hemsworth is an okay choice for Gale.

    I haven't had puto in ages!
