If I am not mistaken, these photos were taken last December 21, 2012 - when the world was supposedly to end. It was the last day of our examinations and the last day of school for the year 2012. I spent it with my friends and we sang our hearts out with videoke and well, the rest of the night was a blur. Haha.

How's your holidays? Christmas was a bit lonely than lovely for me honestly because my siblings weren't home. You know, what's Christmas without family? But then, I'd like to quote "Christmas is not a time nor a season, not a state of mind." So there. I should be more grateful that despite everything, we are still blessed.

 I am actually hoping for a merrier New Year celebration.
 And speaking of which, what are your resolutions?

I love how effortlessly chic they look with just their comfy t-shirt on.

A little non-fashion related but 12-12-12 has been good to me so far. :)
How about you?




I am such a pathetic loser.
And I say that wholeheartedly with no offense to myself! Haha.
It's just I've been causing my life shallow misery just because I feel it lacks some drama and luster. This is what I get for having such an overactive imagination. Bottom line is that, no matter how badly I want to be treated like a grown-up woman, deep down I am still a naive kid at heart and at height. Haha. Oh goodness, I am writing gibberish thoughts and clearly, I am not in my sane mind to put it here.

Gaah, let's just go back to regular programming, shall we? :)




Since last Friday was a holiday, my friends and I watched the PRISAA Cheerdance and Hip-Hop Competition at the local gymnasium. We came and supported our alma mater. And I guess the support worked since we won in both Cheerdance and Hip-Hop competion. 
All hail to NDDU! :)

Here's what I wore:
 Very basic.

Shorts: Thrifted
V-Neck top, Printed bag and canvas sneakers: SM Department Store

Baked cupcakes later that day for a get-together at Toni's place that night. Too bad I wasn't able to take a photo of it. It was my first time to bake but I guess I have to improve more.Haha. It was another Friday night at Toni's place. Woah, for almost the whole month of November we were always having booze nights, shenanigans and good times. Haha. Not that I am complaining. I love my friends! 

It's just I hate myself for always misbehaving and being stubborn.

How was your long weekend?

If there's something I am guilty of collecting, it would be fashion magazines.
 It's actually a growing collection I share with my Mom and sister.

But the catch is, we only buy them when they are on sale. We wait for back-issues at our favorite BOOKSALE store. Haha.

My sister and I first collected Seventeen Magazines (Philippines).
 There are times when I feel like I've already read every single page of the magazines, but when I pick it up at random moments and go over it, I always discover something new. The articles are so helpful and applicable in real life. Indeed, Seventeen is a college must-have. So it was a bit disheartening when they stopped publishing last 2009.

I really have a penchant for this magazine.I really think it's the best fashion magazine here in the Philippines. Their editorials and articles could be at par with the ones I see in international titles.
Basta maganda talaga! Haha.

So far,  here's my TOP 5 COVERS for Preview:

MARCH 2011- Georgina Wilson and Borgy Manotoc
JULY 2011 - Iza Calzado
APRIL 2010 - Maja Salvador
JANUARY-FEBRUARY 2010 - Jinkee Pacquiao
JANUARY 2011- Liz Uy

Here's a proof that I am such a fan:
That's my friend Staven holding a January 2012 issue of Preview Magazine. This was taken before they surprised me for my birthday last August. They actually asked me what gift I wanted, I just said "Kahit back-issue lang na Preview Magazine okay na!". Haha.

Just like books, magazines allows me to travel to places and as if meet new people but the latter is just more visual than the former. I learn a lot from magazines especially in the creative and art aspect.The things learned from my magazines are also very helpful whenever I engage myself with a conversation with anyone. It's really a good reference. Haha.

How about you?
What are the things that you fancy?




Inspiration Blog of the Day is Jessica Stein's TUULA

Her blog is such visual feast!
I like it that she features mostly her travels. Reading through her blog, she seems like everywhere!

One day I'll travel the world too and mimic that "Jump-While-Holding-Balloons" pose of hers. Haha.
Quick post!




The fashion show-inspired party of my friend Nise/Toni which I was talking about in my previous posts, happened last November 2, 2012. The exact date of her birthday.
 This special undertaking, I would say, is in the run for one of my most memorable experiences for this year.  To walk in a runway in a room packed with people is such an exhilarating experience and what made it more special was that my Mom and brother were there to watch me. :)
So, here's what I wore for the Dark Rebel Collection:
Next was the Delight in White Collection. I was inspired to don a dress because the fascinator/hat was already provided. British Royal Wedding was the peg I guess. Haha.

Chic Cheapskate Confession Alert:  Bought this cream white lace dress at a thrift shop for only P80.00!
The next collection was the Victoria's Secret inspired collection named Color Fantasy. This was my favorite part cause we got to wear WINGS!!!
And lastly was the Nise Collection. The Nise Collection composed of dresses and gowns Nise had previously worn. Her mom, Tita Rossana designed every dress and gown. She's such an artistic soul! The gowns and cocktail dresses were really beautiful and elegant.
Mine was a mullet gown. I loved it! I love the train detail at the back ;) 
Though I guess the photo did not do justice or maybe it was me. Haha. I think I walked too fast cause I was so nervous every round.
And of course my good friend, the birthday girl in her beautiful Black Swan-inspired gown designed  of course by her mom, Tita Neng:

We danced Oppa Gangnam Style together to end the show. The party was really fun  but the after-party was much much more fun! We danced all-night and availed the dance floor all the way! Such a memorable party, not to mention very lavish.

Thank you again Tita Neng and Toni!!

Watched Breaking Dawn 2 last weekend with friends. And I know this post is some kind of late but aww, I just still couldn't hide my utter amazement with the movie!!!! I remember, after I read the book I was a bit disappointed because even though it was a happy ending, it lacks some action. But the movie totally makes up for it!

You'll know a movie is so great when you just can't spoil it. So yeah, I am convincing you instead to go and watch it, to see for yourselves how awesome and truly epic the ending of The Twilight Saga is!
IF! You haven't seen it yet. ;)

 And here's what I wore:

Borrowed my Mom's ultra comfy black & white striped-tee. :)

Bag, skirt and sandals: All Department Store finds

Thank you to my ish, Kristine Acharon for the photos!
(Check out her lovely blog! ♥ )




 So finally, here are the official photos from the NISE AT 19 Photoshoot!

That's her, the birthday girl. :)

 Young souls fly free! ♥

 I like this particular shot! Survivor lang ang peg?!

For the record, this is my first "official" photoshoot. As in with make-up, wardrobe and professional photographers. Haha. Another thing off in my Bucket List! 

Thank you again to Tita Neng for the experience! ♥
