Dear Self

Tomorrow marks the beginning of your second journey as a reviewee. I know it hurts that you did not make it at first, but it has been over for quite a while already and you have to move forward. You have to start again to redeem yourself.

You can do it, so don't be afraid of the challenges ahead. You have always been strong enough, and you'll only gain more strength as the days pass by. So keep going and keep fighting.

Be the person you have always been dreaming about.

Be the achiever you are, and have always been.

Make things happen. Turn your dreams into reality.

Marshall is to Lily; Marv is to Euni

Braced myself for the goodbye
'cause that's all I've ever known
Then you took me by surprise
You said, "I'll never leave you alone"
Mine, Taylor Swift

To the person who restored my faith in everything I never thought I'd believe in again, to the person who I actually never expected I'd fall hardly in love with, to the person who managed to make me feel whole, adored, and well-appreciated, to the person who could deal with me through my best and my worst, to the person who has always been more passionate about the things I've been wanting to do and the person I've been dying to become, to the person who has seen me through all my strengths, pretensions, and weaknesses: I could never thank you enough for standing by my side and for always choosing to stay. Together we'll face our monsters, fears, and Octobers. I love you, my favarrite eunimouse hunter. :*  

P.S. Happy 3 and 2/3 ♥

Purple Planner, No More


Hi, I'm Eunice, and I'm typically a shallow person who would prefer buying something purple over something practical.

For the years 2014 and 2015, my planners have been from CBTL - first, because it's purple, and second, I really find their planners worth investing into. However, this year, when I got a closer look at their 2016 Giving Journal, I felt disappointed. It actually got me questioning, "What's the difference between your 2015 and 2016 Journal?" Well, aside from the colors, the dotted page turned into a page of grid lines, and the dates, I can say that nothing much has changed. The material used for the cover of their 2015 planner seems to be the same as the one used for 2016's. The layout inside seemed to have just undergone minor edits - change the background, make it plain and simple, add some touch of creativity, and tadaaa, there goes our 2016 journal. I have nothing against CBTL, maybe I just had expected a lot. Innovation is good, and I don't think I've seen a lot of it this time. 

So yep, for a girl who would usually choose something purple over anything else, I think I'm saying no to the purple 2016 planner of CBTL.

(For those who had a different planner for 2015, I still think that you should try CBTL's journal. Don't let this post discourage you from getting yours. ;) )

'tis that Time of the Year

Chocolate Crepe Cake
Toffee Nut Frappe, Grande
Starbucks Christmas Traditions Promo Card
The holiday featured beverages are back, and I just began collecting my stickers for the 2016 Starbucks planner. So, hello again, longer lines, but yay for a bigger variety of food and drinks.

For dessert, I am personally recommending Sb's Chocolate Crepe Cake because as of now, it's my own definition of heaven. ;) 

PS Still thinking whether I should get the white or the green planner. HOW DOES ONE DECIDE WHICH IS WHICH???
