Whitefield X Beaboy

So I was totally psyched when Whitefield asked me to do a collab with them.

image

Style their shirt, they said, and host a giveaway on my blog. HOW CAN I SAY NO??? 8D

image

I’ve always been a fan of menswear-inspired outfits, so much so that doing the bowtie and suspenders look has become like a Bea thing already.

image

I decided to try going street this time, though, because summer calls for everything loose and baggy.

image

image

O dibaaa! Sumaswag!

image

Whitefield sent me the Red Check LS shirt. Aside from the premium fabric, I do love the piping design and sleeve details.

image

Was definitely excited to wear out my red cap with this outfit. I find that wearing snapbacks backwards makes me feel like I can just bust out crumping anywhere and anytime. 8D

image

image

To make the silhouette less masculine, I wore a low-cut sando underneath and paired it with my favorite low-rise pants. I guess the illusion of some cleavage and hips was my way of stopping people from thinking I’m a dude. HAHA!

image

The shirt is a pretty flexible piece, too. I tried wearing it with a skirt and it could definitely work as a really girly polo! Will post that #ootd soon! <3

image

Europa, Europa

Who here has seen that movie? Haha!

image

image

Anyway, ze boyfriend is away on his Eurotrip adventures, leaving me here with nothing to do but to miss him and wait for him to get back home… HAHAHAHA CHOS!

image

image

At dahil inggit ako sa Italy stop ni Jech, here I am at my own little piece of Europe in the Philippines - the Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill.

image

May St. Mark’s Square din dito noh, sosyaaal!

image

image

Birds be very afraid of the Bea. :|

image

Was aiming for like a tweeny Vogue outfit with my Mango double-breasted blazer and gold Casio watch. Classy classy!

image

image

Made the combo a tad bit nautical by mixing the red jacket with my navy blue dress from Angel Strings, too. You can never go wrong with these colors, I tell you!

image

image

Well that’s all I got for now. I do hope you enjoyed my Tuesday outfit post!

Coming Soon

HELLOOOO MY BEY-BIES I’M BACK! Have you been good little duckiiiies? ;)

image

Soooo sorry I’ve gone on an insane blog hiatus because I’ve been pretty swamped with castings, tapings, and shootings. And some gimmicks HAHAHA! Busy busy busy!

image

image

The happy kind of busy, though, which I now plan to share with all of you since I have some down time! :)

image

I posted a photo with Coleen Garcia last week on my Instagram because we had a meeting with her regarding a TV commercial.

image

She was so cute with the tiiiiiiniest face (I felt like my face was obese and gigantic in comparison)! Here she is with Therlyn and I, because the three of us will be bffs in the commersh.

image

 Anddd… Nobody wanted to do the wacky with me. :|

image

I was so excited to find out that my friend Don was part of the team I’ll be working with for this project, so ayan nagpapicture ako sa lobby ng ABS-CBN. This is me trying to be serious for the outfit shot…

image

And this is me failing miserably hahaha! My inner Derpina must be unleashed! Thanks for capturing this sabaw moment, Mr. Happyfingers! :3

image

One by one I’ll work on my backlog. Keep on reading for more kwentos coming soon! <3

Colorway

Funny how things start out.

image

We leave our comfort zone to wander through unknown territories, gather up our courage to try new things, and pretend to be sociable in order to meet new people.

image

I wasn’t like the people in high school who knew exactly what they wanted to become when they got older. That’s the reason why I’ve experimented with all sorts of stuff after college. :/

image

But I firmly believe that if you pray, and if you try, God will help you along the way.

image

I suppose that’s how life is - it all starts out gray and confusing. It’s up to us to pick up the crayons and do what we have to do. He will help you find your path and your rainbow.

image

We’ll all get there someday. Chins up, bey-bies. :)
