Golden Light

Operation "turn-the-photos-look-warm" successful! I took these quite early actually but they look like I took them during the magic hour (sunset) instead! Took advantage of the beautiful morning light streaming from the window then setting my white balance to shade or cloudy and voila! Instant sunset-y photos! This was my outfit btw when my friends and I went to the first ever Indie Fridays by Bloggers United at Il Ponticello in Makati. This look came together last minute and I couldn't be more grateful to these shorts for saving me from turning my closet inside out again in an attempt to find something decent to wear! Haha! I couldn't be bothered to plan my outfit ahead of time/the night before so when these cute lace-y shorts came in the mail that day I knew that I was gonna build my outfit around it. Don't you just love it when an outfit comes together unplanned and unintentionally? It's either you love what you come up with or have a what-was-i-thinking-moment. Exciting, yeah? Haha!

Fresh February!

F-stop's back this Feb with a fresh new collection! Here are just some of the stylish pieces that I modeled for Melai! And I must say, the clothes in this collection were sooo fun to shoot! There were all sorts of styles like modern, edgy, retro pop, dainty, vintage glam and so much more. I'm sure you'll find something that will suit your style! My fave looks would have to be the one where I was wearing the red creepers with the pink shorts and the last photo. I rarely wear something like that and I didn't think it'd suit me until I wore it. Ahh so far from my style but so fun to wear! Go check out F-stop now and stay tuned for the release of the collection sometime this Feb! :)

Pastels On My Birthday

So this was my birthday outfit on the 16th! Wore something warm since it was raining that day but I managed to stay cool by bearing my legs. As you can see, I was trying to evoke a "mature"/"womanly" charm on these photos since I just turned 20 after all by donning a casual-sophisticated outfit but still keeping the look youthful by choosing individual pieces that were still cute and young like matching purple bow ring and earrings, studded cuffs to balance out the serious-looking wristwatch, heart-printed jumper, pink bodycon skirt, denim polo instead of a crisp white button down and a colorful bag. Just because I said byebye to being a teen doesn't mean I have to grow up overnight, right? Plus, I wanted to wear something that was still "me". 

So on my birthday I spent the first half of my day by listening to 90's music like Spice Girls songs, Lovefool by The Cardigans, Kiss Me, There She goes and Don't Dream It's Over by Sixpence None The Richer, Don't Speak by No Doubt, You Learn and Ironic by Alanis Morisette and even a little Aqua on the side just 'coz I felt like reminiscing and looking back on my childhood. Haha! And maaan, the songs back then were totally more meaningful than the music that we have today (with the exception of a few of course). So yeah, after getting a bit teary from the nostalgia that washed over me (Haha oh damn I guess I'm really getting older), I went to Trinoma to celebrate my 20th over a lovely intimate dinner with my high school besties at California Pizza Kitchen. We had the place all to ourselves so we were able to talk, laugh, eat and camwhore non-stop like we owned the place and that was when I realized that I was finally truly happy and content with my life as of the moment. And that realization was the best gift that I received on my birthday. :)

PS. Would you guys mind if I post some photos from my birthday dinner and some other random things on here?

Little Girl Blue

Here's my second outfit worn on the last day of the Hot Air Balloon Festival! I built my outfits around the boater hat and this pair of swallow printed flats. I might've repeated wearing them for two consecutive days but at least I had fun styling them in two different ways. Whew, I think I abused the word "two" in that sentence. Haha!

Anyway, how did you guys spend Valentines? Mine was a little...blue. I just spent my V-day in front of a computer screen reading Detective Conan online and dressing up my Coco Girl on Facebook. I hope I don't do the exact same thing on my "B-day" this coming Thursday (although I don't really mind reading DC). Haha! Oh damn...I'm finally hitting the big 2-0. Why does time fly faster once you turned 18??? Hahaha Okay, I'm rambling so I better end this post now. :)

skirt- Tomato
satchel- Coconut Gold

Up, Up And Awaaay!

The 3 S': Scallops, stripes and swallows. And if you throw in the satchel there'd be 4. But you know, I just made that up. Haha! Who knew that putting all these elements together could make for a quirky, fun and cute ensemble? Perfect for the 17th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta helt at Clarkfield, Clarckzone, Pampanga last week! The event reminded me of Coachella---what with the tents, the people sitting idly on the grassy ground, food and souvenir vendors scattered all over the place and the laidback ambiance---that I decided to dress up like I was going to the event lang but of course I also incorporated a little bit of the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta into my outfit by wearing the colorful striped blouse. That way, people would mistake me for a balloon! Haha! The outfit was also a great pick me-upper since I was a lil bit miserable and couldn't enjoy the experience to the fullest 'coz I had the flu. It was so bad that I used up all the tissue that we brought and the skin on my nose was red and peeling. Eww not a pretty sight, I tell you. Haha! But that didn't stop me from enjoying the lil vacay so I'm really glad that we went.

Saturday, February 4, 2012


And I'm backkk! Well, I don't really have new outfit shots to share with y'all 'coz these photos were taken last year, just the day before we watched The Sound of Music play at Resorts World. I was a bit hesitant to post this 'coz you guys might find it too simple or not even blog-worthy but this particular outfit has a touching story behind it that it'd be a shame not to post this. I wore this on December 29, 2011 on the day of my appointment with my doctor. Why was this outfit so memorable, you ask? Because my mom and I had an unforgettable heart-to-heart talk that caused us to tear up a bit and laugh all at the same time (baliw-baliwan lang ang peg haha!) that day. That's why I just had to post this. Plus the shirt that I was wearing here was a Christmas gift from my Yaya, Ate Gina! She thought I wouldn't like it but I was really touched when she gave me this together with a cute purple bow ring! So I dedicate this post to her and tomorrow I'm gonna show her this. Hihi. :)

P.S. I just had to take a photo of my first cup of coffee after months of staying away from it. Doctor's orders. *shrugs shoulders* So I was especially excited to gulp it all down when my doc gave me the go signal that day. Haha!

Hope you like it! :)
