The Sunshine Girl

Elaine | 20 | Saved by Grace

I live for smiles, affection, optimism and most importantly for grace. Passionate about adventures, journaling what life teaches me, humanity and their untold stories and uplifting people to have the courage and to remind them to pursue whatever dream they have. At the moment, I am busy seeking the King and is currently in the process of being the one He intends me to be. ♥ more>>

I am given the opportunities and blessings by Him and in this blog is where I document them.

In celebration of their online relaunching, the most trusted online retailer of Fujifilm Instax Minis are giving away 4 of their Instax Mini 8 camera and what’s awesomesauce about this is that it comes with film! The giveaway started last July 12 and will end this Saturday, August 23, 2014. They are now down to their last camera — which is my favorite color among those 4!!! 

Being a bummer that I am, I usually browse online shops whenever I get bored and when Facebook, Twitter and sometimes Tumblr has nothing to offer. Earlier today, I was searching for updated prices of Instax Minis — being I’ve been eyeing it for quite some time now — and went to Lil’Whims site. It is as if the universe is conspiring for me to have one (#lawofattraction) because when I looked into their sidebar, I found out that they are having a giveaway and it is still ongoing!!! How timely!!!

Why search for the prices of it when it is possible (I believe it is!!!) for you to have one for free? Hah! Keeping my hopes up.

dearest lovely humans,

My sister Elaine let me take over her tumblr account today. So here I am blogging about my new look. My parents didn’t warn me about the whole grooming thing. Although, I often get some hints every now and then because I am slowly having tangled hair. After the grooming process, I can’t believe they didn’t notice me. They even asked the groomer if it was really me. I’m not used to my look because it feels light and also, I received lots of laugh especially from my sister. That resulted to me, hiding in the darkest part of the bedroom. However, after a while, I was bombarded with lots of kisses and hugs from them so my depression eventually fade away. 

It’s been 2 weeks since my first grooming session and I am totes okay about it. I regained my high spirited attitude and back to being a hyper furball that I am. And, I’m excited to announce that my mom said they will be going to get another puppy for me to have some company! I’m super duper excited.

Anyway, how do you like my look?

Hihi. That’s all for now. My sister is coming!!!

today i believe…


Just to keep my blog alive, I’m starting a new blog segment. This segment was inspired by the twitter account @everydaybeliefs that I recently followed. I know I am pretty inconsistent in running this blog but I am trying. Besides, this segment is my way of motivating myself and of course you guys! 

… that when it seems like nothing is happening, that’s when God is working.

… that quarterlife crisis should be punched in the face hard and that I got to keep moving.

… that I will pass the board exams this coming October! (aja!)

… that we must always look into the bright side.

… that it’s okay to cry if you want to. But make sure you will get back up, wipe those tears and be happy.

… that being happy shouldn’t have reasons. You just gotta feel it.

… that leaving is not always an option.

… that it’s ourselves that is keeping us from not doing what we want to do. 

… that every choice is ours to make. 

… that sunny and chill day is the best days.

… that Joseph and the other disciples did a lot of years of waiting and I shouldn’t be afraid of being one of those folks because I am with a good company.

that I don’t have what it takes but God do.
