What do you call your hairstyle now? I just love it so much and I'm planning on getting exactly that haircut by the end of the month. It suits you so much! I just hope it'll suit me just as much as you. :)
I think it’s called an asymmetrical bob! :D
Didn’t exactly ask for this haircut, but it turned out okay! Hope you like it on you also! <3
Tuesdays are for outfit posts so here we gooooo! <3
There are days when my brain sort of refuses to function, and all I can blog about are things that randomly pop into mind.
This is most definitely one of those instances, so I apologize if I’m all over the place hokayyyyyy?
I just missed y’all so much! And kahit walang sense gusto ko lang magpost wahehehe wuhihihi lalalala! Sabaw ata ako pag may sakit! :(
Excuse the tummy shots. I have no abs ahihihihi!
Wore my Angel Strings bling out because it seemed to go so well with my galaxy top. I’ll be posting more agate necklaces soon, by the way, so keep thine eyes peeled! Also for these galaxy tops because they will be for saaaale!
My favorite sneaks from Terranova never fail to complete my need for blacks and neons!
I don’t know if you guys notice, but I like wearing cycling shorts underneath my shorts. Just to give it that 80’s effect (or hide my butt if it’s sort of peeking WAHAHA). Hello, Trunk Show spiked shorts!
Added a shiny smurf beanie to balance out the colors a bit, and to keep me warm in this semi-cold weather!
In fairness ha, guys, lumiit na ang tiyan ko. Masikip dati yung shorts na yan at ngayon maluwag na. ONE DAY I WILL HAVE ABS! I WILL MAKE YOU PROUD! KAYA NATIN TO, MGA KABABAYAN!!!
Hi, Bea! I'm an avid fan of yours ever since I've watched your video when it was your turn serenading Jech on a Valentine's Day! <333 I got LSS by the song, actually. Hihi. And also! That vid on instagram where you say thanks to Xian Lim for the Mcflurry and I love the way you said Derek on the last part. :"""> Why'd you have to be sooooo adorbzz?? Whyyyy? :') I also love your Skin White comersh! You're definitely one of my girl crushes. Hihi. I love you, Bea Benedictowww! <333
Helloooooooo! I am adorbz because you think I am! I personally think I’m just weird, which is normal ahhaha! :3
Thank you so much for your kind kind kind words, love. Readers and followers like you never fail to brighten up my day. You make me shy, but I love you.
Here is an old college photo of me because I feel like it perfectly captures my current feelzzz. <3
Bloggers United 6 was held last December 7, and it was waaaaay awesome! Here I am with my ever-so-cute boothmate, Bestaaayyyy! :* (stole your picture without permission okay hehehehe lab mo naman ako dibaaaa)
Aside from my usual pre-loved items, I was able to bring Angel Strings along with me! Sales were surprisingly good so I guess you’ll be seeing more brand new apparel at my booth next time. :3
This vest and trouser set is actually from Angel Strings, y’all, and I still have a black polka dot and white checkered one up for grabs… just in case you wanna steal my look or something HIHI SHAMELESS PLUGGING!
It was my first time to wear heels for a BU event, just because I wanted to look like a more legit blogger. My plan sort of backfired, though, because I wanted to kill myself halfway through the event HAHAHAHA!
Nevertheless, it was a day filled with sweet laughs and crazy energy. I’ll always feel grateful for being part of Bloggers United! Thanks for these outfit shots, Anton Aguila. Here is an emo shot of me for your perusal lawwwwl what? <3
AND SOOO A BLOGGERS UNITED POST WOULD NOT BE COMPLETE WITHOUT SPECIAL MENTIONS! Thanks for these bey-bies for tagging me on Facebook! Hi Ahlex Luna, aka miss always present! <3
Alexandrine Delfin aka mahilig sa cross :3
Clau Recreo aka waw ang pretty mo <3
Czerene Aguilar aka one of my favorite readers ever!
Gemnikka Alcantara aka grungy cool girl (LOVE YOUR STYLE!)
Rosette Adel aka cutey of my life
U-Ned Algabre aka bongga kung bongga!
Lhui Abellar aka shy boy (pero feel ko hindi talagaaa)
Julie Bonina aka miss red hair kung red hair! Thanks for being wacky with me!
And for all the people who tagged me on Instagram, I love you guyyyyyssss! I will now promote y’all on my blog. Follow niyo na sa instagram ang mga to hehehehe <3
I’m sorry if I missed out on anybody,because I really do appreciate all the tagging! I love seeing my readers and being able to mingle jingle tingle haha! ‘Till the next Bloggers United! <3
I’d just like to share some of the most awesome photos ever. Would you believe it if I said these were raw, unedited shots? ;)
I call this “the black and white beanie shoot”, because that’s really all it is - the epitome of anti-excessorizing! Because sometimes, all you’ve got to work with is your face and body, yo!
What to do when there aren’t any flashy accessories and flowy dresses? Weeeelllll, I’m not sure if I’m in any position to give any modeling tips, but I guess here I’ll give you my major rules. HAHAHA!!! OMG I’M SO FEELING, KILL ME NOW!!!
1. Know your angles. Mine’s the left, and so you’d notice, I like to face the camera with the left side. My right is weird HUHU!
2. Don’t be shy. It can get really awkward when you can’t think of a pose, but just let it flow. Even the most labo poses can look good in pictures so don’t hesitate so much. Pabayaan mo na rin kung sobrang sexy ng mga kasama mo, isipin mo lang na sexy ka rin kahit hindi talaga HAHAHA #toink
3. Hide what you want to hide. I have a biggish bust and they make me feel conscious hence I like to hide it from the camera - LITERALLY! And it kind of works hahaha! Look how flat-chested I look in this shot! 8D
4. Show what you want to show. I have TIIIIIINY lines on the upper part of my tummy that look like abs so I like to play with them and pretend I actually have a muscular physique. HAHA!
ANYWAY YUN LANG! Y’all should go out and have yourself an awesomely simple shoot, too! Hope you can show me your own “black and white beanie shoots” because I’d love to see if my simple tips actually help. <3
Nevertheless, we’re in the same boat, you guys! I still have so much practice and work to do when it comes to modeling! If you have your own tips, feel free to share! <3
I was one of the three girls in the Revlon mini magazine! The oldest one, sadly, but I’m so flattered to know that I can still get down and dirty with the 19-year old models. ;)
I was assigned four looks for 2014, January being my favorite - mainly because of the hat they let me wear! Feeling sort of like Catherine Zeta-Jones because of the sparkly dress and lipstick was also pretty awesome hehehe! :3
Yes, I’m uploading unedited photos. Price tags and all. HAHA!
I was the March girl, too, hence the supposed school colors. Feel na feel ko ang pagiging Atenista!
You’d notice that the original dress color was actually lilac, but kebs na yan! 8D
Being Miss July was pretty fun because the look was “intern chic”. This very much appeals to my preppy side so it was a pretty easy character to internalize!
The team decided to go with the orange blazer… and I seriously wanted to steal this white one. I STILL DON’T OWN THE PERFECT WHITE BLAZER WHERE ARE YOUUU!
I was pretty stoked to be assigned the coolest month ever: October! This look made me feel like I was worthy of being in a Tim Burton movie! :D
The entire Candy team was cool and I really hope to be able to work with them again this year. *AHEM, CANDY, HIRE ME* HAHA! I kid, but not really. Lalalalaaaaa!
Hello po. I just want to ask :) kelangan ba maging rich para maging fashionista? :D and PS: Idol ko po kayo ♥
HINDI NOH!!! :D
Kailangan lang alam mo kung ano bagay sayo at kung ano ang kakaiba. I only recently started investing in more expensive things, just because I make my own money now. But I still appreciate a good ukay find. ;)
Awwww that’s so sweet. Thanks for dropping me a message, love! <333
Nothing like a rejuvenating spa post to start the year, so here goes!
I was invited to the Ki Neo Day Spa in San Juan, Greenhills, and I decided to take Gela with me. She gave me my late birthday gifts which were way awesome!
Please thank your sister for this Daniel Padilla poster hahaha super benta!
We arrived at the right building because we saw this sign. Took us a while to find the actual entrance though, whoops! LOST CHILDREN!
The place had some majorly cool Samurai X feels to it (saying that just because of the whole Japanese Zen thing going on), but here I am taming down from all the giggles as the waiting area is supposed to be hush hush. :3
We were allowed to avail any package we wanted, so we went ahead and chose the Ginger Body Scrub and the Zen Massage.
To make our individual massages extra special, though, we were asked to choose our oils. Gela chose water and I chose earth. Each oil has their own meaning and purpose, so it’ll really depend on you guys!
Once we got our packages down, they served us ginger tea. It was a great way of kicking things off. We got to “internalize”, so to speak, our gingery treatments and the tea was really yummy!
Here are our “feels like salabat but tastes like honey” faces! AKA sabaw faces hahaha!
We got a room with a curtain divider and we were instructed to change into our bathrobes…
And these skimpy little thangs ;) HAHAHA HENCE WE REALLY NEED THAT CURTAIN. DON’T LOOK AT ME, GELA :))
I think we might be the noisiest visitors ever, because everything seemed funny.
Like Gela’s shower cap na medyo fail HAHAHA again, we had to keep quiet and restrain our giggles.
Meet Ate Aida and Ate Rose, our byutipul masahistas.
They brought our ginger chu chu. Our bodies are ready!
Just a few selfies before we got started.
The Ginger Body Scrub was a pretty interesting body treatment. The masahistas basically massaged us with their special ginger mix, and I felt like I had new skin after! I felt like all my dead skin was removed. As in everywhere talaga ah, pati kili-kili hahaha!
After getting covered up in ginger, we were asked to take short hot showers. The bathrooms are so purdy!
We have no photos of the Zen Massage but I tell you - I got stretched and pressed in ways I never thought I would. AKA PURE AWESOMENESS. Thinking about it now makes me crave for another massage.
We were given more ginger tea before leaving. Oh, ginger teeeeaaa. <3
We were so satisfied with the service that we immediately asked for their tip envelopes. Thank you so muuuuch for having us, Ki!!! You are definitely a great place to relax! <3
Ki will be offering home spa services starting this year so I suggest you avail, guys! But only if you’re from Greenhills or Ortigas mehehe :3
Hope you’re all having a great 2014 so far, my bey-bies! <3
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS UNTIL 2014! HAVE YOU MADE YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS YET? <333
We’ve got another chance to become better people, so here I am assisting you in my own little way… a fun giveaway!
1. SkinWhite Advanced Power Whitening Lotion
I’m riding on SkinWhite’s #BetterMe campaign because I think it’s awesome. Everyone wants to change for the better, and we’re all very capable of doing so. So why not become your better you this 2014? :)
2. Design Your Life Planner
It’s really in our hands whether we choose to improve ourselves or not. Nobody can force us to have bigger dreams, work extra hard, or become more giving. These are things that only we, personally, have control over. This incoming year, I’d like to give away another DYL planner so we can take matters into our own hands and design our lives.
Hello, my bey-bies! Are y’all enjoying your holiday? <3
Because I did! And so I begin my Christmas post!
I’m very very happy that Jech visited me on both the day before Christmas and Christmas day itself. It made the occasion extra special and love-happy (new term that I am coining because of its sheer apt-ness hahaha)!
We heard mass at Greenbelt that night. I love how mom wore red and green, the whole family should’ve followed suit!
We moved to Makati this year and we weren’t able to take our Christmas tree with us. So we have this small Christmas tree display amongst our giant nutcrackers and we just placed all the gifts on some table. HASHTAG #MEDYOCORNY
HASHTAG #PEROPWEDENA hahahaha whuuttt.
And our noche buena feast is prepared! <3
Dinner with the family is always fun. My sister’s family arrived just on time and here we are feastingg. Do I look like my momma? :D
My nephew Tristan and my niece Arwen performed some Frozen songs for us after eating. Tristan sang that cutesy snowman song and Arwen sang Let It Go… WITH PROPS. As in tinanggal niya glove niya, binato niya yung crown niya - OUR LITTLE ELSA IN THE HEEZAY! <333
Gift-giving came afterwards. Isn’t this the cutest family card ever? <3
I lalalaaaav giving and receiving gifts. I’m so very thankful that we’re given an opportunity each year to show people how much we care.
We had a long night and hit the sack around 4am. It was pretty awesome, though, simple yet fun! I hope y’all had an enjoyable Christmas, as well!
Watch out for the Benedicto/Wong music video coming soon, too! Will try to edit it in time for New Year’s Eve! <3
I’ve been getting real deep lately, thinking about life and all its silly complexities.
So I’ve decided to muse on such things on my blog along with these new outfit shots - just to, you know, reduce the risk of sounding like a Philosophy lecture. :3
Sometimes you feel on top of the world. You think it’s all finally under control, then you realize rain has to happen before you can expect a rainbow.
I’ve been having so much fun in the commercial business and have only recently realized how difficult it could be. So much drama. You guys would not beliieeeeve. :/
Nevertheless, I guess it’s up to me to take on the new challenges and make the most of what I’ve been served. Sabi nga nila, diba, na ‘di tayo binibigyan ni Lord ng mga problemang ‘di natin kaya? Siguro naman totoo yun! :)
I guess that’s just the way things are. You can’t always be up, you can’t always be down. There’s that inevitable balance kept, which I suppose is a good thing because it keeps us all grounded.
SPEAKING OF BALANCE! (HEHEHE SEE WHAT I DID THERE?) Check out my Shimmer shoes from World Balance! Excuse the sudden transition, I was starting to feel like a cheesy quotes book na eh. Let’s talk about this outfit to brighten the solemn mood okay! <3
I introduce y’all to my favourite pair of shorts. They used to be pants but I cut them to make them more wearable. Cute, right? Ukay lang yan! Hehehehe
I wore this hot pink agate pendant to bring out the pink hues of the shorts. Check out the Angel Strings page for more of our best-selling Alessia necklaces. :)
I was going for a very 80’s Katy Perry-inspired look with the pink and the denim. I even wore banana socks to make my ensemble very kiddy (which I seem to be doing a lot lately hahaha maybe kasi matanda na ako).
I guess this post was my way of venting to all of you and at the same time reminding myself that everything will be okay. We all have our hardships and issues pero sama-sama naman tayo dyan.
I’m so thankful to all my readers who support me and cheer for me. Just know that I’m here for you guys too, okay? If I can help you with anything, just ask! HAHA FEELING CLOSE! LOVE YOU, MY BEY-BIES <333
Sunshiney photos by my newest photographer friend, Ivan Quinial. :)
I may be 24, but I still feel like I can pass off as 19 sometimes. HEHE or feeling lang ba ako???
May mga araw na gusto ko panindigan ang pagfifeeling kong ito, so pagbigyan niyo na lang okiiii. I will now share my kiddy look. :3
Anyway, my fellow Bea’s Place partners and I decided to match tops during the SuperSale Bazaar last weekend. Which explains my top. (HANGKYOT NAMIN NOHHH!!! AGREE NA!)
Another thing I love nowadays: matching red with pink. It’s an unusually great combination, I think. Very fun and it totally works.
Third thing I love: my new Nava jacket! I will always be a fan of tweed, but the leather sleeves of this baby just totally blew my mind. 8D
I feel classy lady and a cool jock at the same time. Which is an unusually awesome combination of descriptions, if you ask me! Check out the rest of the new Nava jackets and sweaters! I WANT THEM ALLLLLL!
Nava’s got a special promo going on, too, so get yo butts over to #BU6 to avail of the 10% discount!
Finally, I’m totally loving my World Balance sneaks. Alam niyo yan!
These Stance high-cut rubber shoes have become my ultimate fave. I’ve been wearing them with every lazy outfit I come up with nowadays because they’re super comfy and they make me feel like a hip-hop dancer… which I am not but I wish I were huhuhu! T_T
I mean, how can you not look younger with sneaks on?! They are the secret source of youth, I tell ya! I’ve shared with you the ultimate Bea get-young secret *bow*
Anyway, this kid’s gotta get going! Hope to see all my loves this Saturday at Bloggers United 6! Tell me you’ll be there. <3
