“There are no guarantees, there are no alibis, that’s how our love should be, don’t ask why?” – Toto

How do you assure one’s self? How are you supposed to bring back confidence that was long gone? How do you bounce back to become a secured person? How do you once again gather love in order to give it away?

Because no matter what I do I end up feeling way better for a moment then feel worst once again. Has destiny passed me by?


Eye Bag Miracle for Dummies (Photoshop)

We all have that one almost- perfect portrait that we can no longer recapture but left only to caption what the obvious mishap is. In my case it usually involves dark circles under my eyes. And so for dummies like me, here is a 1-2-3 to basic eye bag enhancement using Photoshop.

Step 1: Use the “Patch Tool” found in the same selection as the Healing Brush Tool.

Step 2: Draw a circle around the dark crease of the eye bag. Make this as thin as possible for more natural output.

Step 3: Position your mouse inside the circle and gently drag it downwards just a few centimeters from the edge of its original location.

Although only a case-by-case basis, when you drag the circle too far from its original point, you end up having a distinct color difference. Which would entail using other editing tools and would no longer make a tutorial for dummies like me 😀

Step 4: Finally release your mouse and hit Control + D or Commad + D (Mac) to deselect the area. And there you go 😀

Pardon my narcissistic side.

While there are superb moments we failed to capture on cam, there are also instances where we brought our cameras yet failed to experience moments.


Genius Pink

It is not thursday thrift yet but I can’t go to sleep without sharing my “wise buy” from today’s Sundate at the mall.

My boyfriend and I were just killing time before we check out the Guardians of the Galaxy by strolling around gadget and accessories stores nearby. I did plan on giving my phone a new case but I don’t really spend much on accessories. I normally wait for the old one to wear and tear. And since Mr Smiggle is not giving up on me yet, I have been enjoying a very low maintenance iphone.

But look at this “shocking pink” iphone case I got from CD-R King, isn’t it lovely?


What makes it “shocking” though is that it only cost me Php 20.00. Yes that’s around 0.45 USD. Now that’s genius. It is not made of rubber but snugly fits iphone5. It’s light weight too so I still get to enjoy the essence of a slim phone.
