Beat the Heat
What time is it? Summer time! It’s our vacation! However, I’m not a student anymore so… What vacation? Luckily, I can still manage to squeeze in some time for travel. Here are some of the photos from my latest escapade (all of which are outfit photos, by the way). No, I’m not campaigning for a certain candidate. I just wanted to be as bright as the sunshine. ...
Again and Again
I know It’s been a while since my last post. Argh. I’m so busy but I’m trying my best to keep my blog updated. (Top: Forever 21 | Pants: H&M | Boots: Steve Madden | Bag: Divi) Hype this look on lookbook here. I’m wearing a peplum top again. Sundays are always laid-back days and this top fits the bill. Long-sleeved tops are my favorite go-to. Metallic pants and...
Give Love Everyday
What I did for my loves last Valentines Day:Chocolate Lollipops!!! They’re very easy to make, you could do them everyday! You just have to prepare the following ingredients and materials (shown above): -Chocolate Melts -Molds -Decorating Bags/Foil -Lollipop Sticks -Plastic Wrappers -Ribbons I bought all these (except for the ribbons) at Michaels but I’m sure they’re...
Shedding My Skin
(Quick Post) I’ve been sick for days already. It must be the weather. Ugh, I hate this feeling. That’s why today, I put on a simple outfit for church. I even have shades to hide my bare pale face. Haha. (Top and Leggings: SM Department Store | Bag: YRYS | Boots: Clarks | Bangles: Sidewalk in US | Necklace: Divi) Snakeskin leggings for the Year of the Snake. How fitting!Full of...
Give Me Everything
(Top: Redhead - SM Department Store | Blazer: Landmark | Clogs: Wet Seal | Bag: Parisian - SM Department Store) I love peplum tops! They’re very versatile plus, they CAN make your waist look slimmer (if you find the right one). I got this one on 50% off. I am one lucky girl. Hype this look on lookbook here. Have you seen Pitch Perfect yet? I enjoyed it so much, the songs got stuck in...
They say whatever you do during the first day of the year, you’ll be doing for the next 12 months. So I chose to blog! This was during our Pangasinan trip (see previous post). When traveling, I opt for a comfortable outfit aka sweater and jeans. (Top and boots: Forever 21 | Bag: H&M) I love the details of the sweater. Also, I used my floral print jeans instead of a plain one to...
So I have been bombarding my blog with loads of posts from my US trip and I think it’s just right that I also bombard it with travel posts from my home — the Philippines. Recently, my family and I visited one of our hometowns — Pangasinan. The pictures here shows our usual route every time we visit the place — Lingayen, Binmaley, Mangaldan, Dagupan and Manaoag. ...
(Top, skirt and bag: SM Department Store | Shoes: Charles & Keith) This was during Christmas day (which explains the bright red outfit). I wanted to walk around the city with my antlers on, but other people might think I’m crazy so I didn’t. I can be your hero, baby~ I am wearing a cape! Nope, they’re not only for superheroes. Who knew they could be so stylish? <3
Santa's On His Way
…Riding on my sleigh. Merry Christmas everyone!!! This post serves as my greeting. Hohoho. (Dress: H&M | Jacket: Tomato | Boots: Clarks | Bag: SM Department Store) I’ve been searching for a looong time for a jacket like this — full of studs. Originally, I wanted a leather one but that wouldn’t be wearable (all the time) here in the Philippines so I opted for this...
Never Too Old
My Birthday Post (Shirt: Uniqlo | Blazer: Forever 21 | Pants and Bag: SM Department Store | Shoes: Charles & Keith) Hype this look on lookbook here. Love always <3 Who says cartoon characters are only for kids? Winnie the Pooh is my favorite and I’m glad to have him on my shirt. Then there’s Hello Kitty. That HK ring was given to me by my office mate. It’s so...
Going To War
Spiked Warrior. I obviously don’t like spikes, do I? Haha. Fortunately, my friends were not scared to get near me. These spikes are harmless anyway. Boots given to me by my cousin. I love heeled boots (actually, anything with heels). <3 (Shoes: Steve Madden | Bag: SM Department Store - Parisian) Hype this look on Lookbook here. As you can see, I am carrying a jacket on my left...
The rays of the sun were so blinding that I wasn’t able to keep my eyes wide open; hence, the title of this post. I hate it when my eyes are squinting in pictures but these are the only ones I have for this outfit so here they are. At last, I was able to wear this peplum skirt I bought 2 months ago. I love that it suits my personality — very bright and colorful. (Top: Prima...
Okay, I was being sarcastic. Two ber months have already passed and yet the brrrr still can’t be felt. Nevertheless, I’d still wear all my sweaters! They’re perfect for the “lazy days”. What I like about this one, aside from its cute print, is that it is not too thick which makes it wearable during the not-so-cold days. Cute accessories <3 – Minnie mouse...
USA 2012: Week 7
Finally, the last installment of my USA travel posts is here. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my family and relatives for making this dream of mine come true. Even after three months, it still feels surreal. The places I once only saw on the big screen were right before my eyes. There is no doubt it is such a beautiful country which makes me miss it sometimes. But as the saying...
The Starry-eyed Girl
Say hello to the crazy real me! When I saw these sunnies at Old Navy, I immediately grabbed them and went straight to the counter. Unlike my previous looks, this one lacks bright colors. It’s good to try something new every now and then. Hype this look on Lookbook here. (Top: H&M | Blazer: Landmark | Pants: H&M | Necklace: H&M | Bag: SM Dept. Store | Clogs: Wet Seal |...
USA 2012: NY Aquarium and Bronx Zoo
Welcome to Animalandia! This has got to be one of my favorite blog posts ever! I truly love animals. I take pictures of them whenever I get the chance to. Honestly, I want to be a wildlife photographer (aside from being an engineer, of course). Anyway, for those who do not know, New York Aquarium is in Brooklyn. It’s also in Coney Island (see previous post). Bronx Zoo is, well, in Bronx....
USA 2012: Coney Island (Brooklyn, NY)
Let’s go to the beach each, let’s go get away ♫ ♪ We were so lucky we saw Coney Island at its prime. It’s just so sad to see the pictures of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The weather was so cold there (it even rained) during our visit that we had to buy sweaters just to be able to move around.
USA 2012: Rhode Island
What’s in Rhode Island? Aside from Brown University where Serena van der Woodsen (Gossip Girl) was supposedly going to go to college, some of our properties can be found there too. JUST KIDDING! The Newport Mansions can be found there. They used to be owned by the richest people in the US during the Colonial era to the Gilded Age but now, they are considered as historic house museums. The...
USA 2012: New Jersey
4th of July Celebration: View from the window. That’s NY, across the Hudson River. The message carried by the plane: “Peanut - I ♥ you beyond the sky! H.B.” Red white and blue, stars over you! Barges carrying fireworks Ready to watch the show HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAHAHA. I mean, Happy 4th of July! Atlantic City: Casino + Shops + Beach Their version of...
USA 2012: Washington, DC
Welcome to the capital of the United States! Sadly, we had only (less than) one day to tour the state. I don’t really have much to say since the pictures can stand on their own. (A picture is worth a thousand words and I’ve got 51 in this blog post.) Gazillion museums Two of the most popular attractions — the United States Capitol and the Washington Monument, respectively ...
Let The Sunshine In
“Things didnt turn out the way they were supposed to, but what can you do? You must take life the way it comes at you and make the best of it.” - Life of Pi Flower Power. I’m always attracted to prints, patterns and colorful things. These are the perfect floral pants for me because they’re not too flashy. I bought them at a very cheap price, too. What is sulit? I...
Head To Toe Green
Haaah! At last, another outfit post after n years! I’m not really very fond of the color green which explains why you don’t see me wear a lot of clothes in that color. Well, today’s a different day. I actually like this shade of green best. It’s very refreshing to the eyes. These are my favorite colored pants, by the way. They make my legs look longer(?). HAHA. My...
The Little Things
Photos from last week’s adventures ☺ Guess which one is mine Favorite drink forever My “I need to go to the bathroom” face HAHAHA ☺ Don’t you dare mess with me! Just kidding, I’m harmless. My most overused bag nowadays Love this print!! (Top: H&M | Vest: Pretty Girl | Pants: Forever 21 | Wedges: Wet Seal | Bag: Dooney & Bourke) Check out this new girl...
USA 2012: Universal Studios Day 2
Here’s what went down during our visit to the Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. It was the best day of my life (for that week HAHAHA). ☺ I have arrived at Hogwartsss!! Entering Hogsmeade. ”Please respect the spell limits.” There’s still snow on the roofs even if it’s already summer. Magic. Hihi. ☺ Look at the sea of people. To get inside the castle...
Me. Usual casual getup. Messy wet hair. Yay. LOL.That is my most overused cover-up. I love kimono cover-ups. I bought those spiked bracelets from a side-walk vendor in the US for $1 each. What is sulit? (Cover-up: Landmark | Top: Divi | Shorts: Seventeen | Bag: H&M | Shoes: $5 Warehouse)
USA 2012: Disney World Day 2 (Hollywood Studios)
First of all, I just want to say that I’m so happy I found a way to preserve the quality of my photos. Yay Photobucket!☺ Okay, back to business. For our second day in Disney World Orlando, my brother we chose to go to Hollywood Studios. People usually go to Magic Kingdom because it’s the most popular one but since we’ve already seen it in HK (I’m sure the one they’ve...
Greener on the Other Side
Another outfit post! Yey! I know this is not how my photos usually look like (these look weird) but there was something wrong with my settings when these were taken. Sadly, that’s that. :( Anyway, I’ve always wanted to have floral print pants and I found this! I bought 2 pairs since they’re very cheap. You’ve got to love the cheap things. Hihi. (Lace Jacket: Forever 21...
Last Days of Summer
This post is 3 months late! These photos were taken before we went to the US, which explains everything. I just wanted to break the “travel posts” streak and it’s also been months since I last had an outfit post. So, here it is! Yey! (Top, skirt and bag: Divi | Shoes: Ebay)
USA 2012: Disney World Day 1 (Epcot)
The Epcot theme park is divided into two parts — Future World and World Showcase. (Warning: This post is photo heavy.) Future World: Epcot Icon The plants of tomorrow My favorite ride for this park. You and your team (I was the engineer, of course) will “control” a spaceship and travel to Mars. It felt surreal so real! The rides are not as scary as the ones usually found in...
USA 2012: Universal Studios Day 1
For me, this was the best part of the whole trip —having visited 4 different theme parks in 4 days. I’m a kid at heart. To be honest, I think I was more excited to ride rides, watch shows and do whatever it is you do in theme parks than my niece and nephew (well, it’s not their first time). Besides, who doesn’t enjoy going to the “happiest places on Earth”?...
USA 2012: Blueberry Picking (Week 3)
Before we went to Orlando, Florida, we stopped over in Maryland to visit my cousin and her family and to experience blueberry picking. We had to ride a truck like this to get to the blueberries. The orchard is huge. You could buy your buckets there, like this one. Hello there, blueberries! I was tempted to make a blueberry cheesecake.. if only I knew how. :/Family time is always the best...
USA 2012: Week 2
The concrete jungle… Trump Tower. Pretty interesting architecture. Yay for the trees! You might wonder where the products and people are in that Apple store — well, they’re underground. I don’t know if you can see it clearly but there’s an elevator in the middle. Shirts shirts and more shirts Gothic church More stores. Can’t resist sale. St....
USA 2012: Week 1
I’ve been MIA for the past two months and I guess from reading the title of my blog post, you already have a clue why. I traveled with my family and relatives. This awesome vacation was a graduation gift from my parents. Gosh, I can never thank them enough for everything! So, yes, I spent almost two months (7 weeks) in the USA, specifically in NYC. What I want to do now, is to bring these...
All of Our Bridges Burned Down
This is my rock star look. I decided to wear my “wrestler” pants again after 1243495 years. HAHA. Would you believe that I bought that denim jacket from SM for only 100 pesos? Can’t. Resist. Sale. Lots of metals and studs It’s rare to find oxfords of this color. When I saw them on Ebay, I just knew I had to get them. (Shirt: Forever 21 | Jacket: SM Department...
PhFW Holiday 2012- SM Ladies Wear (2 of 2)
More lovely prints! More mature black and white outfits (with occasional reds) Blazers! Silk! Lots of lace, scintillating pieces and peplums! Gorgeous finale dress And ofcourse, the inevitable outfit shots. HAHA. I was supposed to wear a black cropped blazer but something happened that I ended up buying that cover up right before going to SM MOA. I love its scalloped...
PhFW Holiday 2012- SM Ladies Wear (1 of 2)
The Fashion Week has ended and I’m so lucky to have watched one show (out of the four I had tickets for). Before the show started, I went to the SuperSale Bazaar to check out what they had there. I bought a bag that suits my outfit (why my bag didn’t suit my outfit is a long story) and saw some of my favorite bloggers. Tin of Fashion Ate the World Joanna of Only the Marvelous ...
Sundays are always family days. We drove all the way from north to south (SM Mall of Asia) to meet up with some of our relatives. I had tickets for two fashion shows scheduled that day but sadly, I wasn’t able to watch either. :( Who wears blazers during summer? Me. HAHA. This blazer is not thick because the fabric is sheer that’s why it’s bearable to be worn under the...
Look At Me, I'm Sparkling
The sequined top, Aztec print skirt and ankle boots are my purchases from the latest Forever 21 sale at SM Megamall. I didn’t plan for them to but the pieces fit together. The details are more noticeable in this picture — the eye-catching sparkling sequin detail of my top, the beaded collar necklace and the braided head band. I used the head band to give my outfit that hippie...
Head Over (No) Heels
Collar on collar on collar. I love the multiple baby collars on this blouse. It’s actually from the pre-teens section of the department store. They have cute clothes there — you know, designed for equally cute kids (in my case, kid at heart). It’s not a bird, not a plane~ I don’t know what I was thinking with this one. I make the most awkward poses! HAHAHA. Here, you can...
Two Sides to a Bag
Another denim + floral print outfit Tadaaa. The main attraction of the outfit: the high-low/mullet skirt. The other attraction is the bag, which is the one mentioned in the title. Notice that it has two sides to it which I find very cool. Plus, I bought it at a tiangge store which makes it wayyyyy cooler. I’m such a cheapskate! HAHA. (Top: SM Department Store | Shoes: Jellybean)
In the Garden
Color Everywhere. I really tried my best to capture the beauty of nature through my lens but nothing compares to experiencing it with your own eyes.
Floral Prints + Denim + Gold Stuff = THIS Flowers everywhere. Floral prints have always been a staple spring/summer trend. I love love love flowers mainly because they’re colorful. (I know I like to repeat words for emphasis. HAHA.) Having them on my accessories and clothes is bliss! (Top: SM Department Store | Cover-up: Landmark | Pants: Forever 21 | Bag: SM Department Store | Wedges:...
Weekend in Manila
So my high school friends and I spent our weekend in Manila. I don’t get to visit this place often and I’m happy I had the chance to explore it, even for a very short period of time. The view from the terrace of the condo we stayed in. I love love love views from the top. Right after I took this photo, we walked towards that body of water which is the Manila Bay. Refreshment!...
Standing on the Yellow Line
I’m finally done with college and that can only mean one thing: more time for blogging (or not)!! I love unique looking shoes, like this one. ❤ (Top and Skirt: Forever 21 | Necklace: Landmark | Shoes: Ebay)
Under the Same Sky
Graduation is just around the corner! This marks the end of one chapter of my life and the beginning of the next. I am going to miss a lot of things and of course, a whole lot of people, which makes me sad. But then again, like the title of my post, we all live under the same sky so there’s nothing to be sad about, right? The real question here is why am I placing some emo text in this...
My Bag is Full of Secrets
My Easter Outfit I love how the fabric of my collar matches that of my skirt. Hype this look on Lookbook here. I find this bag really cute. My mom and grandmother also have the exact same bag! We all have the same taste! BTW, it’s really cheap. (Skirt: SM Department Store | Bag: Mogao | Shoes: Jellybean)
Where I'm From, Everyone's Awesome
How do I even begin to explain UP?
Here are some of the outtakes from a photo shoot we did last month for my friend’s online store, Melia Accessories: (Warning: This post is photo heavy and may get sickening because all you’ll see is my face. HAHA. Just focus on the beautiful necklaces.) With Joyce of Kisses of Bliss I already bought that necklace, as you may have seen in my previous posts. :) Sunnies are also...
Random Day at UP
My simple/usual outfit for school. I just wanted to pose in front of a graffiti wall. HAHA. So random
Pleats + Kimono
Pleats again, but there’s more to come! I love these pleated shorts! Not only because they’re color pink, but also because they look like a skirt. PLUS, they’re very cheap. Details up close (Kimono and shorts: Landmark | Necklace: Melia Accesories)
