Tuesdays are for outfit posts so here we gooooo! <3

image

There are days when my brain sort of refuses to function, and all I can blog about are things that randomly pop into mind.

image

image

This is most definitely one of those instances, so I apologize if I’m all over the place hokayyyyyy?

image

image

I just missed y’all so much! And kahit walang sense gusto ko lang magpost wahehehe wuhihihi lalalala! Sabaw ata ako pag may sakit! :(

image

image

Excuse the tummy shots. I have no abs ahihihihi!

image

image

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!

image

image

My favorite sneaks from Terranova never fail to complete my need for blacks and neons!

image

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!

image

Added a shiny smurf beanie to balance out the colors a bit, and to keep me warm in this semi-cold weather!

image

image

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!!!

image

Anyway, I gotta run! Missing my baby duckies! <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

HEY GUYSSS! What is late? Haha!

image

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)

image

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

image

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! 

image

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!

image

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

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? ;)

image

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!

image

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!!!

image

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!

image

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

image

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

image

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

Revlon Mini Magazine (Candy)

I don’t know if you guys saw this post on Instagram, but my very first editorial modeling was for Candy! <3

image

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. ;)

image

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

image

image

image

Yes, I’m uploading unedited photos. Price tags and all. HAHA!

image

I was the March girl, too, hence the supposed school colors. Feel na feel ko ang pagiging Atenista!

image

image

image

You’d notice that the original dress color was actually lilac, but kebs na yan! 8D

image

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!

image

image

image

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!

image

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

image

image

image

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.

missfairytaledreamer asked: 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

Ki Neo Day Spa

Nothing like a rejuvenating spa post to start the year, so here goes!

image

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!

image

Please thank your sister for this Daniel Padilla poster hahaha super benta!

image

We arrived at the right building because we saw this sign. Took us a while to find the actual entrance though, whoops! LOST CHILDREN!

image

FOUND ITTT!!!

image

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

image

image

image

We were allowed to avail any package we wanted, so we went ahead and chose the Ginger Body Scrub and the Zen Massage.

image

image

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!

image

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!

image

image

Here are our “feels like salabat but tastes like honey” faces! AKA sabaw faces hahaha!

image

image

We got a room with a curtain divider and we were instructed to change into our bathrobes…

image

And these skimpy little thangs ;) HAHAHA HENCE WE REALLY NEED THAT CURTAIN. DON’T LOOK AT ME, GELA :))

image

I think we might be the noisiest visitors ever, because everything seemed funny. 

image

Like Gela’s shower cap na medyo fail HAHAHA again, we had to keep quiet and restrain our giggles.

image

Meet Ate Aida and Ate Rose, our byutipul masahistas.

image

They brought our ginger chu chu. Our bodies are ready!

image

image

Just a few selfies before we got started.

image

image

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!

image

After getting covered up in ginger, we were asked to take short hot showers. The bathrooms are so purdy!

image

image

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. 

image

We were given more ginger tea before leaving. Oh, ginger teeeeaaa. <3

image

image

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

image

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

image

Hope you’re all having a great 2014 so far, my bey-bies! <3
