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

Bonnie but not really. Here’s a preview of yesterday’s quick shoot with @graphicburst! 👒
I don’t know if you guys saw this post on Instagram, but my very first editorial modeling was for Candy! <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!
Gotta run! Photos by the awesome Shaira Luna.
Aww readers are remaking my photos again! Hello, @jaimenario! You got my smile perfectly haha 😊
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

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
Thank you soooo so much to the @skinwhiteph team for an awesome lunch at 2nd’s and my new instax mini! Looking forward to 2014 with you guys. Merry Christmas! <333
Taking this opportunity to make parinig right now since there are five more days until Christmas! I present my all-white wish list! <3
1. A white leather bag. And it has to be BIG. 8D
2. A good pair of white flats. I can’t believe I don’t have white shoes!
3. Awesome white outerwear like a leather varsity jacket, a chic plain blazer, or a one-of-a-kind kimono.
4. Useful stuff like pajamas or underwear hihi! :3
5. AND BECAUSE MY PHONE IS OLD AND KEEPS HANGING, I WOULD LOVE A NEW PHONE!!! Please please please! Parents, I hope you read my blog post and give me a new one =)) OKTENKSBYE!
