I've been dreaming of this kind of dress for a long time now. I want something that has all kinds of stripes in one piece of clothing. Horizontal, vertical and even diagonal. Indeed the thrift store is a bottomless pit for all my fashion need. I may be shallow, but my thrift finds makes me super happy. c",) They make me feel witty and smart. And i like that.

The Missing Links


Hello everyone! I am having a very nice weekend, hope you are too. Anyway, I am organizing my blog links. I haven't updated since two years ago, so if you wanna get linked in here, just say so. Leave your urls, the title of your blog and please indicate your blog category and if you're a local blogger or from another planet. That's all for today. Have a merry merry weekend. If I may share, since you don't have much of a choice but to read all throughout, - i, Denise Katipunera is eating a lot of icing. I love icing. It's the kind of craving where you don't want to eat anymore but ended up eating more.

Mani and Pedi. It's been ages since my fingers and toes were decorated. Am sorry. Just thinking out loud.

Goodnight my friends. My three boys are long gone asleep. Now it's my turn.

One question. What do you miss the most?

The Sunrays

Expect the best. Every night before i rest to sleep I pray for another good day. But some days just don't go according to plan. It's long been speculated that optimistic people live longer, healthier lives. That being said, i feel like dying today. Just today, this hour. Now it's been suggested that one person's optimistic outlook can actually improve the outlook for another person too. Since I don't want to take you down with me, I'll try to see the bright side of today. Like this shoes. It's clean, it's bright, it's comfortably high , it's lightweight and it's very pretty. Okay . Snap. Optimism is back. I know, the shoe is a temporary remedy but it does the trick. 

Take care everyone. Wishing you all a very lovely day.

Can You Take Me Higher?

I am definitely feeling much healthier and much much much better now. I do remember like it was yesterday how I was always tired the whole length of my pregnancy. Food tastes oh-so-much good now. It was a celebration for me and my husband the day after i gave birth because my taste buds started functioning again. No more drooling, no more nasty after tastes. I never knew how a person's ability to taste food can affect his/her disposition and mood. No wonder a hungry person can be so grumpy. I was grumpy. Not because I was hungry but I can't taste food the way I remember they should be. I have more energy now than ever before my whole life. And It's not difficult to wake up as early as four in the morning. Well, it is still a little difficult. Okay, truth is one baby's scream is enough to wake up the whole neighborhood. And Yllac's got a full use of his mighty lungs when he needs me to wake up and listen to his ramblings. Anyway, babies are weird. And mine is the cutest little weirdo on Earth.

I love old photos. There's a feeling of mystery to it. The joy, rawness, and melancholy of memories it can bring to a person. I also love how everything looks simple back then, - before photoshop and dslr came to scene. I love the fashion and the hair of course. I love how women wear dresses and how men look so draper in their outfits. And personally, i especially love looking through some old photographs of me and my brother together with my cousins. It was so fun. We actually "play". The physical kind. We run, jump and climb trees and spend the weekend with our whole clan on the farm. We came from a family of farmers, so picking watermelon and mud bath is just another field of game for us. Right now we all live far away from each other.So looking at our photos brings us back together again. Suddenly i remember those nights of playing hide and seek, inventing horror stories to tell and sometimes salt fight when we can't seem to settle our quarrels. Kids uh! 

This morning all of my childhood memories came rushing back at me when i visited A Cup Of  Jo and discovered Irina Werning's Site and her Back To The Future Project where she invite people to reenact their childhood photos. Amazing right? 

Now back to me again. Id very much love to reenact this photo of me and my brother at the stairs of my late great grandmother's house. I miss him soooo much. And I miss my Lola Cela. Suddenly I miss everything before.

You Know What?


....Motherhood isn't always pretty, but darn, IT.IS.THE.BEST. 

Right now there is no reason to keep my hair this long, if it will be tied like this the whole day. Believe me when i say that I don't even have enough time to dry and to flat iron my hair anymore. It just takes a lot of time. Will cut it short real soon. That is if and only possible if am given at least two hours of my own time to go out and have a new cut and color maybe. Here's the thing, since motherhood is opening a lot of fresh  beginnings for a new mother like me, might as well embrace all the changes that comes with it.

It was ten years ago since i had a shoulder length hair. Honestly I am a little afraid of the cut I am thinking but I need to toughen up. It's just  hair after all.

thank you for having the time to read Denise Katipunera. Especially to our friends who always comment and many thanks to our silent readers. I may not visit you all right away, but i always appreciate your time and effort for those clicks and wonderful messages. Thank you. God bless.

Two days ago on Valentines day I forced Yllac Katipunero to wear red. That made him cranky. So i sang to him. He got angrier. I read to him, he fell asleep. 

I wish he'd be a reader when he grows up - one of the many dreams i have for him. Now I sound like a real Mom.
