Safe and Sound

There's something about nude tones that make me feel secure. I'm not of the whitest complexion variety and I usually don basics that would complement my skin and nude hues would always be the safest choice - for any skin. Nudity (no pun intended) can be a tad saturated so I would always pair it with prints that wouldn't make it too much of a bore. It doesn't take a genius to create an outfit, so I think this look is a no-brainer. Besides, I would feel too naked if I didn't put anything else over something. I like covering up and hiding things, I feel comfortable in doing so.

That's because I am a very closed off person. One of the hardest things for me to do would be to choose people I trust. I would rather muster all the difficulties I have than to share them with others (read: I only consider 2 people that I sincerely trust, and one of them would be myself) just because I can't think of anyone else to trust. I like to live quietly with no hindrances and concern for others. Yes, you can say I've been quite self-centered - that's just because I got used to it.

As none of you may know, I've been living in Manila since 2008 then suddenly went back to Pampanga late last year. It was a last minute decision that I am still inevitably satisfied with. I have taken for granted (for lack of a better term) what the province is/was to me when I was a teenager. I used to revel in the fact of having so many peers that I continually and eagerly looked for people to befriend - desperately. Not until I swept my radar off for 5 years that I was able to find out who the people I could actually trust are. So, this is me, blogging from a quaint house in Pampanga - safe and sound. And very happy, thank you very much.
