Currently spending my morning in Berlin sipping a cup of coffee and devouring some German pastries while thinking about the sea and sun back home. Winter is something new to me and the cold is something I am struggling to get adjusted to. Just can't help but miss the tropics so badly especially after seeing these photos just hanging in my laptop. And then I thought it would be nice to share it to you all before I start my Berlin posts. Yes, I am slowly getting back to blogging. School's officially done and so I don't have anything to eat my time anymore :)

finally graduated last month and before flying to Germany I spent my last days at the beach with family and friends anticipating that for the next 3 weeks all I will be having is the cold breeze and gloomy skies. 
I was in Bacolod on the first week of December to visit Patrick for our Anniversary and my friends, Tia and Ashley, said they would take me to the beach. These photos were taken at Carbin Reef and Sumac Island in Sagay, Negros Occidental - a 2-hour drive from Bacolod. It wasn't supposed to be a photoshoot but it turned out to be one. The photos are beautiful (thanks Ashley) and I do hope you like them too!
Till then guys! Can't wait to show you Berlin :)

Hello everyone! Here I am updating my blog with photos I took of Rome to summarise our 6-day vacation. It has been a long while since my last post and there's just too much to say but I want to leave the photos and captions to tell the story on my behalf. I won't go into details but if there's one thing I could say about this Roman escape, it was and will always be one of the memories that I will forever keep dearly. It is a beautiful city. Romantic and beyond enchanting.

Via Condotti, Rome's famous shopping street.

Since I am here already with with hands on keyboard and heart on high with encouragement to update you guys, let me take this chance to share a tad bit of what life has been the last months. To start with, it honestly was [still is] stressful. I hardly have time for things other than school. It's difficult to explain but let me try. I go to an Interior Design school and I am on my last year in advanced class. Unlike other Universities who have two semesters in a year, we have four. Which means exams every 2/3 weeks and no breaks at all except Christmas. I wasn't on full load the last 2 years until July 2014 and the day I arrived from Europe, life has been nothing but about school. If you were wondering what our normal week looks like, think of five 3-hour classes, at least 1 defense and 3-5 design plates. My weekends are spent doing homework and there are times when I have only 4 [sometimes none] hours of sleep. Tiring. Exhausting. Draining. Just everything connected to stressful but it's my dream course/job and sometimes in life we have to set goals and choose priorities. BUT I am on my 3rd term and by July 2015 I am [hopefully] done with academics. Yay! :)


I do miss a lot about blogging to be honest. And thing I long for the most is sharing photographs with you guys. Random snapshots of anything I found interesting. Of course I miss the "OOTD's" but it's a different kind of contentment I gain from posting pictures and not having to explain why. Photographs sometimes just have to speak for themselves, don't they? Nowadays, I only post on Instagram 'cos it's the quickest and most convenient way to update about certain happenings in my life. 
Today, I am in a coffee shop currently away from the Metro recharging my batteries and the other day while I was thousands of feet in the air, I ran across some old photos from my blog. And since I have no school for 4 days, I thought it would be great to allot time editing and uploading these photos to leave you something to look on and read on. :)

There's not a day I don't think about my blog--the endless updates, tweets and uploads! But lets just say I'm on a very long hiatus now. A break which was difficult to take but is necessary. Soon, when time is right, I shall be back. I missed you guys, I just wanted to let you all know 
Have a great night ahead! 

xx,
TWR
