Life in Technicolor II

The "point at your zit" pose. Haha!
Random shot. Haha! Sadako izzthatchu??? :))
Now this was when things started to get crazy. En and I were actually dancing (to the song Whip My Hair by Willow Smith) while these shots were being taken. I WHIP MY HAIR BACK AND FORTH...I WHIP MY HAIR BACK AND FORTH...like a lunatic. Haha!
Here's a "year ender" photo shoot for 'yall! These photos were taken yesterday with En to kill time while I was waiting for Ara and Deb to arrive at RnB (Cams was MIA...again). Another colorful post hence the title. And yes, I have already named a post with the similar title so to make a distinction I added the "II" this time (just like Coldplay's song). About the outfit, just in case you were wondering, I was wearing my neon printed bathing suit as a top/corset and my little sister's really tiny (not to mention very tight) tutu skirt. So yeah, this outfit was excruciating to wear but OH THE THINGS I'D DO FOR FASHION. Hahaha!

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you're all having a blast! :)

'Til the next post then!

Polka Dot It!

How'd your Christmas go? Me, I had an "okay" Christmas. It wasn't as fun as last year's but I didn't mind as long as I got to spend it with my family and celebrate Jesus' birthday. It was "okay" because only me and my yaya stayed up late 'til midnight to wait for Christmas eve 'coz everybody else went to sleep early. KJ much. Haha! There was no Noche Buena for us this time 'coz my mom fell ill and we were very few in numbers this year so Ate and Mama felt like there was no need to prepare a grand feast. I still think it was sad. Haha! So that night, I just spent it eating my homemade refrigerated cake (miserably) while watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on HBO with my yaya. Haha! We did celebrate in the morning and the afternoon so at least I got to eat something new and scrumptious apart from the blah food that I normally eat on ordinary days. Hahaha!

Greetings from me and my 'lil sis! :)
I'm excited for New Year though. My fave cousin is going to spend the rest of her Xmas vacay here so yay for that! My big sister better unleash the "good cook" in her and whip up some delish dishes this New year celeb for the Media Noche or else...there'll be chaos in the kitchen 'coz of me trying to cook something and destroy the kitchen in the process. She wouldn't like that now, would she? Bwahaha!

PS. Have you noticed my new hair color? A bit reddish for me, though it was supposed to be a light golden brown shade. Oh well, guess I'll just have to wait for it to fade a little. :)

Much Love,

Been awhile...

Long time no...er, blog? Haha! Sorry for the lack of blog updates, I've been making the most out of my vacay by constantly going out with my different barkadas thus leaving me tired (or maybe just too lazy) to blog about things. Anyway, this outfit post with my BFF Mel had been taken a few weeks back. She spent the night here at home after a night out with the rest of my HS gang and then shot these photos in the afternoon.
So...here are the reasons for my being AWOL in the blogosphere (not that you guys asked for it but please let me share haha):
Went to support and watch my good friend Ara's play at ADMU. Dinner at Eastwood right after, then cocktails at Cantina in Katipunan. Sleepover at my house after that and then took the outfit shots (with my BFF) the morning after.
Angelique's Japanese-themed debut on Dec. 19, 2010. I went as a schoolgirl wearing my 'lil niece's preschool uniform. Haha! Altered the waistband a bit so that it would allow me to breathe and EAT, it was a debut after all. Epic night, though if I'm being perfectly honest, it was the longest and most agonizing debut I ever went to (not because her party was a disaster or anything. Just saw someone there who made me sad, anxious and mad all at the same time.) Haha! But I am so glad/grateful for this night 'coz it closed a chapter of my life that I am now willing to leave behind. :)

Reunion with my grade school BFF Rachelle (she moved to the UK with her family)! 5 years was too long and we've missed her terribly! So glad she's spending Christmas and New year here in the Phil! :)

Advance Merry Christmas everyone!

Hope everyone's doing well!
Much Love,

Life in Technicolor

Today's the last day of 5th term for me! I am officially on break and def back to blogging! Il dolce far niente! :)
I love this pic, it somehow reminds me of The Stylish Wanderer and it looks so vintage-y. Haha!
"Yesterday my life was duller...now everything's technicolor!"


(top-blacksheep | short-the second shop | shoes-parisian jr. | necklace-the ramp)
I dunno what to call this style as it looks like it can be rocker-ish, nerdy, or urban trendy. I guess I'll just call this...eclectic techno-pop rock "style"? Hahaha!

Suddenly felt very artsy and all hence the colorful orb thingies on the pictures. Haha! This must be an effect of getting my brain fried last night while I was struggling to finish my final paper in INTPRIN. I slept a 3:30 in the morning only to wake up at 5:30 to head out to school. I barely slept at all! Sabaw night/morning indeed. Last night was def one of those sleepless, kaloka nights where I couldn't form coherent paragraphs anymore and still continuing to pretend like I know what I was doing or saying in my paper. Hope to get a good mark though. Ok then, a passing grade will do! Hahaha!

On a different note, Char and Nina awarded me with this beautiful award! Do check out their site if you have the time. Thanks so much Char and Nina! :) I won't be able to tag anyone else right now as I badly need to hit the sack already...zzzzzZZZZZZZZ.

A million thanks to all of you for wishing me luck on finals week! They were very much appreciated!:*

*Colorful, colorful post. Reminds me of The Beatles' music vid of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. :))

Til the next post!

"And then he was gone", said the wind, remembering nothing.

I think I've been away from my blog long enough. Forgive me for the unannounced hiatus once again, it's just that I'm really focusing on schoolwork right now 'coz it's finals week in school. So yeah, hope you guys understand.

As for the photo (above), wala lang it's just my current profile pic on FB and I love how the ruffles of my gown look like ripples of water. Haha! And that picture perfectly expresses what I'm feeling right now: burnt out.

Oh I just wish this term would just end already! Promise to blog real soooooooooon! Wish me luck! :)

Much Love,

The Uncanny Valley

Here are the rest of the photos that I took for my photography portfolio!

The Concept/inspiration:

Inspired by Masahiro Mori's theory named the Uncanny Valley, the theory/hypothesis states that "when robots and other facsimiles of humans look and act almost like actual humans, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers".

I first got inspired by this after watching an episode of Criminal Minds 5 which is now my fave episode of the series to date. I was so creeped out after watching the episode that it got me so interested in the theory of Mori as well!
(Creepy right? There was no blood or gruesome-ness involved in the episode but it most definitely sent chills down my spine when me and my sis watched it)

As much as I'd like to name it "Living Doll" or "Life-size Barbie", thought I'd go for a fancier and more intellectual-sounding name hence the title "The Uncanny Valley". Plus, this also serves as a tribute to my fave episode of CM5. :)

Hope you guys liked it! Outfit post coming up on the blog real soon!

Much Love,
ScarletApril xx
