There’s something about condominiums that are so enthralling. These towering buildings always scream of luxury and sophistication- like I could wake up every day in white silk sheets, a great view of the city and only have to worry about what shade of lipstick to put on.
But what good is a condominium if it’s not in the heart of the city, if it’s not a few feet away from the hustling bustling metropolis that you love?
Padgett’s Place is perfect for those who want to keep a piece of their hearts in the city. With it’s key location being a only a few minutes away from Cebu’s prime scenes like the mall, schools and parks (by car or even on foot)- it is obviously a top choice for those who are searching for a new place to call home.
From location to interior, filling it up with great pieces would be the least of your problems. Units at The Padgett’s Place are pre-furnished as compared to other bare units which makes filling it in much easier.
I can imagine myself living here, definitely with more closet space, that is. Coffee by my window to the view of the city while I glimpse at people running towards work (I wonder why I won’t be rushing to work. lol), lunch in my pantry, lounging in my big fluffy extra comfortable bed, afternoon snacks with friends by the coffee shop and then a quick work out inside the building. At night, I’d probably be outside having good conversations with Paolo while we star gaze or even go night swimming.
Oh, a girl can dream.
Padgett’s Place is located at Molave Street, Lahug, Cebu City.
It is developed and marketed by subsidiaries of the Duros Group of Companies. It’s subsidiary developers are Cebu Green Peaks Development Properties, Inc.

I’ve always been the type of person who liked to run away from my problems- literally and metaphorically. My logic was, if I could avoid having to face the problem, it would eventually be ok. Don’t they tell you that time heals all wounds? So I moved out, avoided the people who hurt me, changed Facebook accounts a billion times, deleted URL’s and did anything I thought could help me get away.
But sometimes, you can only run so far and in my long time of running and not really getting anywhere, I’ve realized that the things that matter the most are the things that haunt you and find even in your deepest lurks and corners.
I think that God (I am trying not to be so skeptic anymore) has his ways of pulling us out of the dark, no matter how comfortable we’ve become without light. We may not understand why or we may not want it but when it finally happens, we realize that we’ve always wanted it… we were just too scared to want the things we know could hurt us.
I have finally finally finally stopped running away from one thing in my life, sometimes I would say it could be one of the most crucial things in my life, and instead I’ve decided to run towards it. If you asked me if I was excited about it, I’d tell you that I’m terrified mostly out of the fear of disappointment… but what it life without a little beating, right?
But nevertheless, I hope all will be well.
You may not know my story or where I’m coming from after all, the most you get out of this blog are pretty (I hope) pictures and a little bit of this and that, here and there but take it from someone who’s been sitting in the dark for decades… sometimes things get dark and then they get brighter and then they get better.

I wish I could just lay on the beach with the sand in my hair, sun in my face, Pina Colada in my hand, sand in my feet and not to mention, an endless bikini collection every day of my life. If people were to ask me what my foundation is, I’d tell them it’s sunburn and my conditioner would be sea water. The fish would be my friends and my backyard would be the sea and instead of partying under flashing lights, I’d have the sky’s twinkling lights and sparks off the bonfire where I’ll most likely be at the end of the day. I’d never be depressed because I’d never have any problems and money would NEVER be an issue cuz well, DUH, I’d be stinking rich!
What an absolutely beautiful thought to think while I’m on our couch, half asleep, while taking my lunch break.
The real world sucks.
My next few posts will be photos that I took over my short vacation to Bantayan Island so I hope you all enjoy that.
To be honest, I went on this trip to spend time with “lost” family and within those 3 days, I have learned so much about other people and more particularly about myself. I’d rather not tarnish these memories with fancy fashion advise as to what to wear to the beach but since I have gorgeous pictures and I’d rather not put them to waste, I figured I’d perhaps blog about something else.
I’ve realized that being a fashion blogger seems very glamorous but to say that I live a glamorous life would be a complete and utter lie. So maybe it’s time that you get a glimpse of what’s on the other side of the screen.
I hope everyone is looking forward to that because I definitely am. I think it’s an important aspect for me, as a blogger, to show a more personal side of myself. Fashion advice will always be there but when there’s something in your heart that could probably mean more to others, I think it is meant to shared. I always wish to be an inspiration to others so I hope in the next few entries to come, you will find comfort in my pains and somehow, use them to make your stronger.

You can’t always have everything in life.
You can’t expect everyone, including the ones you love the most, to be there for you at your every beck and call.
Sometimes, people have to do things on their own even if it disappoints you.
There can never be happiness without sorrow, you just need to pick which side you want to stay on.
The things you want change.
Sometimes the things you thought would hurt you the most are the things that bring out the most joy.
Times heals all wounds.
Forgiving someone is hard but when it comes, it can be the most liberating of things.
It’s ok to cry, especially if they are 2 decades worth of tears.
Life changes you.
I should invest more on my tan.

I’ve always wanted a skirt like this, it’s what I always imagined fancier and more refined women would wear to have afternoon tea while they talked about their husbands and the struggles of being trophy wives. Not to imply that I dream of one day becoming a 1. wife, 2. house wife or 3. trophy wife (not that there’s anything wrong with these things) but more of me being surprised that a complete tomboy like me would actually find the guts to wear one.
You can tell that articles of clothing like this are so foreign to me that I actually have this skirt on backwards! Remember ladies: rough side goes on the back, smooth side goes in the front. *face palm*
Deciding what to wear with stand out pieces like this are often tricky which is why, as a rookie, I decided to keep it safe and pair it a plain black one piece top from Forever 21.
The fact that this piece carries a lot of colors makes pairing it other pieces so much easier- I’m looking forward to wearing this again soon with a red or a royal blue chiffon top… and then maybe I can throw on some heels and gobble down a big fat burger.
I’m sorry if I’m having a hard time taking myself seriously right now, obviously, this isn’t my area of expertise. I’m finding myself in a weird place where I want to grow up and blossom into the woman I am meant to be but at the same time, boots, t-shirts and palazzo pants will always be my choice of comfort dressing. #growingpains
On a more familiar side, always thankful for Let’s Stylize lessening my woes. Make sure to check out their new collection from Bangkok!
P.S. I contemplated on naming the entry “I Wanna See Your Peacock” but decided to be a good girl and save my shenanigans for Talk Back Thursdays. Yep, Issa Perez, (that’s meeee) being inappropriate since 2010. You’re welcome 😉
