In One Piece: Me and My DIY Swimsuit

Hey! Barely a day and I'm blogging again.

A giveaway caught my eye! Tisha of Here, Tishie Tishie has a great giveaway in store for us with her Anniversary Giveaway: Cocomo Swimsuits which is totally awesome! I haven't participated in any giveaway for the mean time but this is a good chance for anyone who wants to win a really cute swimsuit!

First off I'm not the AHH-TOO-SEXAY-FOR-MY-SWIMWEAR kind of girl. I'm rather conservative, opting to wear swimsuit topped with a big, breezy shirt or with shorts.

I'm afraid I don't have a lot of swimsuit at all. Just one, but recently, I bought a simple navy blue one piece to go to a company outing (WHICH WAS AMMAZING-We went to Pearl Farm Beach Resort!)

I'm wearing the swimsuit here, lovingly termed by otaku (like myself) as a "Mizugi", which pertains to the standard-issue swimsuit given to Japanese highschool girls. I even put my own nameplate on it!!!! On my chest I sewed on a small fabric with my name, AICHA, in Japanese characters.

I bought the swimsuit for just barely P300.00 at a department store and made the DIY nameplate by myself! Hahah! It's kind of dorky but I really like it :P I doesn't make me look my age at all... I'm 24 years old but people thought I'm like 18 or something when I wear this to the swimming pool :(

That's why I want this from TISHA'S Anniversary Giveaway: Cocomo Swimsuits !!!!!

I need a new swimsuit but around here I can't find the right mix of cute and fun like this Vienna swimsuit!!! It's really nice!

Here are more of the prizes from Anniversary Giveaway: Cocomo Swimsuits !!!!!

P.S. - It's EMBARASSING for me to put up photos of myself like this, since I look really dumb, I'm always smiling a lot. XDD But hey, that's me!

Thanks for reading!

Stupid Weight Gain

This must be my punishment for letting my blog go... I've also let myself go! What started as something I wanted for myself (a healthier me), I now want to rid myself of!

2 months ago I started the quest to gain weight. I honestly thought that at 97-99lbs, I needed to add a bit because a double digit weight is kind of worrying.

Though I'm only 5'1", most poeple would say that the 97 lbs is okay for me since I'm small, but I'm not very comfortable with it, and I don't want to give the appearance of weakness or being frail at all. I want to look and feel healthy and active at a normal 100-105 bracket at least. That's not bad to want, is it? It is stull under normal weight range.

It started out manageable, but I guess I kind of lost focus for a bit. What I ate were chocolates. I LOVE CHOCOLATES. I cannot put into text how much I love them, but the pictures below will show you. So everyday in the office I ate a lot:

Aaargh! And so many more chocolates that I really feel guilty now. :( I haven't weight myself recently but I think I am at the 108-110 range. The weighing scale in our workplace clinic is busted and is up for calibration until further notice, and I don't really have a weighing scale at home.
I'm now on the way to recovery! :d I stopped eating chocolates Monday this week and it's made even harder because my sister just sent a package of chocolates along with other stuff just yesterday, too. We have almond chocolates, crunky, pucca, pocky and gourmet cafe chocolates that I refuse to eat anymore!!!
:( I'm suffering hahaha! But I know I have to stop eating snacks so much and start eating healthy. I need to lower it a bit again!
Sorry for being away, I missed everyone :)
