I’ve always felt that Valentine’s day is my kind of holiday: lots of cheesiness, flowers and chocolates galore, hearts hearts hearts plastered everywhere, and all those hues of pink and red.
This year, I received so many happy surprises from my partner, who remembered my fave flowers: gerberas, statice and carnations!
She also surprised me with a pamper kit (which serendipitously is also what I gave her lol) via a scavenger hunt and numerous (!!!) love letters. How’d I get this lucky?
We also went to Baler to surf together. The Joy bus ride was terrifying, tbh, but having someone hold my hand while I clutched theirs with a death grjp throughout the nerve-wracking ride made it (a bit) bearable. ♡
Loved the chill vibe of Charlie Does!
I’ve been dreaming of owning my very own Camel midori so I finally got one!
I also went to the Big Bad Wolf Booksale and almost fainted from happiness. Here are the books I got:
I focused on arts and crafts books since I know these are the really pricey ones that I’ve been eyeing in bookstores. We went twice but I think the best finds are found in the earlier days. Less messy bookpiles and less people too!
I got inspired to paint some sakura blossoms using fountain pen ink (oxblood):
Since I missed making collages, I made some collages recently as well. My books from the #bbwolfbooksph inspired me to make these:
Plus, I’ve been filling up my journal/planner pages daily:
I hope February has been kind to you too! 😙
