April 2017 - The Multi-Hobbyist

Escape to Camarines Sur, Bicol 2017

Bicol 2017

During long weekends, I wish I am somewhere, traveling, like everybody else. However, since I'm getting older, my body, my mind and unfortunately, my wallet (because I'm saving for something) is asking for a timeout. A time to breathe, relax, reflect and most importantly, sleep. It's almost May, but sometimes I feel like it's September already, due to the number of things I need to get on top of. But it's okay because I like it that way. I'd rather that, that than an idle mind.

Anyway, so since I'm just at home during the next few days of summer (probably), here's a throwback post to satisfy my wanderlust: our Bicol escapade just this January.

TMH Playlist: 04/17

Halfway through April, I posted a spontaneous playlist dedicated to mellow or soft-sounding songs. I know I committed myself to post a playlist per month, but treat this as a bonus. I'm still posting my playlist for April so, yay? :)

It's been a while since I last posted a beauty-related entry. I've been swamped with work and music events, hence, a lot of posts about it. But anyway, here's another part of my Lipstick Collection, with swatches—MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Ariana Grande lipstick!

TMH Playlist | The Slowdown

TMH Playlist: // The Slowdown //

I'm not usually into mellow or soft-sounding songs (especially acoustics, except if it is really good) because like the sleepy person that I am, I will definitely be a) sleepy; or b) fall asleep. So I tend to gravitate towards music with fast/strong beats and catchy tunes. However, since the Holy Week gives us ample time for us to reflect, relax and whatnot, I came up with The Slowdown. It's unplanned and totally spontaneous since I've yet to finish my playlist for April, but here it is anyway.

So, I don't know if you know him. But if you're a fan of EDM, chances are, you have heard of at least one song with his voice. I'm talking about Matthew Koma, an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and DJ. He recently kicked off his 2017 residency at Chaos Manila (ICYMI: I posted the article I wrote for AsiaLive365 here) and exactly after a month, here are more photos I took from the event.

TMH Playlist | 03/17

TMH Playlist: 03/17

I don't know about yours, but the month of March for me went by so effing fast - I didn't even get the chance to savor each day. LOL, but I'm not kidding. March threw a lot of opportunities to me (and I'm thankful!) and like the career driven woman that I am, I grabbed every single one of them. Even though I was tired and sleepy every single day, now that it's April, I'm just relieved, happy and feeling that sense of accomplishment at least. So anyway, here goes my monthly playlist!
