A bulk of my teaching workload is finally over. Classes are still ongoing but the technical editing of the college kids' papers is already mission accomplished. One task down! Though I'm still far from getting that 8 hours of sleep because I was blessed with a hardheaded challenging freelance client. If given the choice, I wanted this project to be over soon. To make this happen, I'm submitting to client's unreasonable demands ASAP. Unfortunately, what I thought as a great solution has been converted to another problem. Client tends to become more demanding since I submit outputs before deadlines. Sigh... My other client, whom I expected to be more challenging, ended up as the more cooperative. Another lesson learned indeed...  

Setting aside work, here are the few beautiful things that made my week

As always, there's FOOD!!! At some point, I'm thinking of renaming my Beautiful Sunday series because of the foodie photos. :)

Chewy Junior! It's like a huge cream puff to end my most awaited Friday night. Thanks to my college friend M for introducing this to me.

Goodies from Tous Le Jours and cake slices from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

My forever favorite French Macaroons and one of the best coffee muffins I've ever tasted is from Tous Le Jours.

I arrived home with two slices of cakes from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leafn(TCBL) during the start of the week. They were actually gifts for my Dad. But since Dad is not a big fan of cakes, I ended up as the happiest beneficiary. Hihihi

I tried TCBL a few times but I never tasted their line of cakes. This time however, I enjoyed their slices of tiramisu and cheesecake. I guess I have a better place than Starbucks. :) 

Trying to be healthy at the workplace

Puto Calasiao and Smart C's lemon squeeze, perfect for the long and sleepy afternoons at the workplace

Treated myself with these in the middle of the week

Beauty and (foodie) Madness 

Belly Heavy meal from Taco Bell and a new set of beauty products from The Face Shop

While most girls would consider chocolates as their comfort food, my preference is an extreme diversion. I go for carbo loading in Taco Bell. Rice bowl meal, potatoes in cheese sauce paired with a tall glass of coke equate to my heaven of happiness and unhealthy oiliness. :)

I also purchased a few goodies from The Face Shop. I'm trying their version of everyday face powder and water proof eye liner. Confession to make, they are a bit expensive for my usual budget. Hopefully, these products will work on me. They are expensive but way cheaper than the MAC Studio Fix.   

The shoes in my shopaholic list is now mine. Yay!
My first pair of Yosi Samra in camel!
I've been wanting to acquire a pair of Yosi Samra. I'm however constrained with the little hefty price that comes with it. In the end, I opted to buy another pair of Anthology shoes last month. Anthology shoes are relatively cheaper and I can attest for its durability. I convinced myself that my new Anthos will make me forget my desire for Yosi Samra. Unfortunately, I ended up spending more. I wrecked my wallet for this Yosi Samra. Lesson learned: Buy what you want to acquire that much needed peace of mind :)

As expected the shopaholic me is dying to have another pair.  I wanted something in silver next time.

This one will not be about food.

Say hello to the newest member of our fun fab fam, Patch!! Actually his real name is Grey... yes, as in the boring color or the famous Christian Grey. In my mind however, I will forever call him as Patch.

Wishing everyone a great week ahead!
