And we'll never be royals. It don't run in our blood

Hola senoritas! I just got back from the airport so I'm kinda sleepy as I'm typing this. Anyhoo, I want to feature Lorde's Royals in this blog post to match this galaxy attire from Apartment 8. Who doesn't like Apartment 8?! Filipina bloggers like Tricia Gosingtian and Camille Co are endorsing it so you can't go wrong with the style. I love 'em! :)

Okay moving on to the song meaning... The 16-year-old singer-songwriter 'Royals' has broken records by becoming the first New Zealand solo artist to have a number one song in the United States. She knocked Miley Cyrus off her “Wrecking Ball” to top Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. She's that good huh?

My preggy sissy Meryl has been insisting me to attend a baking workshop culinary class with her since summer. When I found a great deal online, I didn't think twice and I bought it right away. Chef JV of Casa Feliz gave us tips on how to whisk, fold and mix.
