OOTD : Big Girls Don’t Cry (Wk 4 of Chubby Girls Get Skinny Project)

As Fergie said, “Big girls don’t cry.” Hmmm.. But last week I cried like a lil girl after leaving Crown Towers Manila. We ate in a coffee shop after check-out and before going to DreamPlay. I was sitting there.. teary eyed and told my husband, “I’m sad.” I got sad because I felt like we need more time to swim, rest and have fun. I enjoyed my stay in Nobu and Crown Towers so much that I don’t wanna go home anymore. 😧 You can see more photos about our suites by going here. More details about the great stories I want to share with you during our staycation.. SOON! 😊

Dior Eyeshadow & MAC Sin

That is why choosing the makeup for this look became very easy for me. With white eyeliner, nude eyes and strong lips — my look shouts “stronger!” πŸ˜‚ I felt so sad but I want to look tough so I chose a makeup that says, “Big girls don’t cry” though my heart says, “Cry!!!” πŸ˜…

Let’s add the golden funky choker and cute earrings = an instant rock star look! ✌ πŸ˜… #ToughGal coming up. πŸ˜†

Plains & Prints Bavin Dress

Extended sleeve denim cotton chambrey waisted dress with lattice trim accent. A self tie front detail for a fun top and skirt look.

A denimed dress that has a comfy cotton fabric and a tie in the mid-part of the dress that made the look casual, fun and chic. It is so cute and comfy, I can wear it FOREVER! 😍 Paired with Aldo ZaitzΒ ballet flats, I looked “cuter” because it’s nude and gave me more height that is perfect for the look I wanna pull-off that day.

Photos are in Crown Towers Lounge

I’m trying to smile for the camera while my heart is crushed inside. πŸ˜… I’ll truly miss the people, Nespresso coffee machine, the pool, etc. 😊 How hard is it to say goodbye to Crown? 😯 It’s a good thing that after our stay in Crown, we immediately went to DreamPlay for “fun.” Unfortunately, most of the activities in this place requires “physical” strength. That time, I don’t have “the body” to put an effort in every activity that DreamPlay offers; so instead of having fun, I was just there — sitting down — looking at our photos… πŸ˜… in CROWN TOWERS MANILA. In my defense, I wasn’t crying in DreamPlay anymore. πŸ˜ƒ


In connection to my weekly post for our project, I am very proud to say that I… gained more weight. πŸ˜… I understand that being sad means more weight.. Now I know that the same thing goes when you are too happy. πŸ˜‚ Of course, I already fit in to one of my favorite clothes from Plains & Prints.. so one way of celebrating the unlocked goal is by EATING! πŸ˜… Here are the blouse and skirt I want to wear that caused me to be lax and gain weight AGAIN. πŸ˜†


Weight : 168 Lbs

Lesson Learned : Have fun.. but start finding ways to have enjoyment without too much eating involved. 😨

New Activity : Swimming for 2-3 hours a day. Note : I stopped swimming after checking out in Crown Towers Manila. 😒 Our condo’s pool isn’t too private compared to what Crown Tower has.

There you go. I showed my weakness this week. 😧 But! I still encourage everyone to join us in the journey of losing weight. Join our group in Facebook – Chubby Girls Get Skinny (click here). It is a fun group led by :





  1. I have to say, the second picture, with you showcasing the choker, is absolutely gorgeous!!! You would look fabulous if you ever decided to cut your hair short. The wonderful thing about CGGS: it’s a journey and with journey’s come ups and downs all the time! Don’t sweat gaining weight, darling! I think we all (me, you, and Elisabeth) haven’t had that much of a productive week as far as weight loss lol We are all in this together and you can always keep going!

    1. I don’t know how to swim and because of my big twins, I can’t wear nor find a decent swimwear here in the Philippines. since this is the first time I found a decent swimwear that fits me, plus a hotel with a more private pool, it made me attempt to learn how to swim. I was holding my hubby while floating and did my best to still “swim” just to turn it into my exercise of the day. πŸ˜‰ I miss it though. I tried to swim here in our community but our pool is too crowded and it’s already the rainy season.

      I love the simplicity and the “toughness” of the MAC lipstick. thank u for noticing. πŸ˜™

        1. because of swimming, I didn’t gain too much. I really really ate a lot during my staycation and even extended the “happiness” here at home.. πŸ˜…

          though my fibromyalgia caused me to have back and thigh pains, I would love to swim again given the opportunity to swim “privately.”

          1. I have ate a lot the past two days too! Time for me to get back on track haha! I am so sorry about all your pain girl! My co-worker has that and I feel so terrible for her! I can only imagine how much it hurts! You’re amazing for changing your lifestyle in spite of your illness!
