I Capture: Hong Kong
This is the ultimate entry of my spontaneous escapade to Hong Kong early this November. With such striking surroundings, the aspiring photographer in me was undoubtedly unfettered. Hong Kong’s lovely landscapes were perceptible all over the place, thus I got snappy happy equaling to this captivating photo heavy post for you! ;) I highly hope you took pleasure in my share of my recent departure...
It’s 5 o’ clock in the morning
Conversation got boring… Loljk. My mom, two sisters and I were up and about in the crack of dawn to catch our early morning plane back home. I almost couldn’t open my drowsy peepers while prepping for the airport; hence I became a walking Union Jack with what I was wearing. Nevertheless, I reflect this ensemble as an epitome of comfortable chic, with how stylish and stress-free it was to...
I Shop: Hong Kong
This is the succeeding installation of my latest spree to Hong Kong. I am someone that cannot be regarded as an athlete as I do not engage in any sport at all. Unless you consider shopping, that is! With barely two days of pleasurable spending in wonderful HK, I found myself flying home with these pretty purchases plus a dazzling designer baby that you will most definitely spot in my future outfit...

Equally youthful and sophisticated, she weaves a web of glamour and intrigue for the objects of her desire. No men can resist her- nor do they want to. She leaves them breathless every time....
'Cause I May Be Bad
… But I’m perfectly good at it. Rihanna’s S&M played in my head as I posed for outfit photos inside our hotel room’s highboy. In this ensemble, I chose to change course from my extra effeminate pieces by dragging in a little bit of toughness through the use of lace ups, leather and metal chains. What I wore: Green Vivienne Westwood button down shirt and Moschino...
I Chow: Hong Kong
My darling mother, being the spur-of-the-moment queen that she is, decided that she wanted to spend the long weekend of early November in Hong Kong at the very last minute. You are all acquainted with how I find traveling irresistible. Therefore, without fear or favor, I said “why not?” In view of the fact that I have already blogged my Hong Kong trip last May from day to day, I settled on a fresh...
Make Cupcakes, Not War
Just because this sheer button down and its cupcake prints were too adorable to pass up on while looking through my closet, I gave it a take two. That pink watermelon was originally a key chain charm but feeling a little bit crafty one monotonous morning, I took out my trusty glue gun and turned it into my very own finger candy! Cute, isn’t it? What I wore: White tank top [Random], Denim...
… is for fashion, friends and frozen yogurt. Three things that genuinely make me one happy girl! Amazing how the World Wide Web has brought us three together. Cheers to our new-found friendship, Hash and Nikki! <3 Would you believe Nikki “glitterized” these shimmering shoesies by herself? Now I’m inspired to make my own version… in sparkly pink! Equally...
Succeeding the Ready to Wear Show, I, together with Hash and Nikki strolled around HOTSPOT – Fashion Trendspotting & Shopping at SMX’s Function Room 4. We experienced fashion elation as we caught sight of our favorite pieces fresh from the runway up close. Thus, we vowed to save up so that we can incorporate the debonair designer duds to our closets next season. In the midst of all the...
Ready to Wear
A total of twelve brilliant beings commenced the eighth and concluding day ofPhilippine Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2012.

I’m doing a blog giveaway soon and most of the items are from Bangkok so watch out for...
Posing in Platforms
I have been lusting over Jessica Simpson Danys ever since I can remember. Being a self confessed swain for shoes, these babies were expressly no exception. I was intending to purchase a pair online but I was pessimistic that I might order an inaccurate size. So when my good friend, Yua acquainted me that she eyed a pair at Rockwell, I paid a visit without hesitation. Delightfully, I went home with...

Oh Oh Mario
The sight of this stunner’s prelude video got things rolling as each and every girl (and girl at heart) in SMX’s Hall 2 screamed in frenzy. I was a tad bit tuned in with him as I delighted in the flick, Crazy Little Thing Called Love but I did not expect myself to join in the uproar as the boy everybody was anticipating for paraded on the runway, charming the crazy crowd with his...
With a stage setup second to none, flawless faces flounced on the runway colorfully clad in Penshoppe’s Spring/ Summer 2012 collection. Classy color blocking for lads and lasses alike called the shots on the catwalk, leading us to expect a bold, brilliant and beauteous summer solstice ahead of us. Merci beaucoup to Marie and Aleq Africa for my VIP wristband! :) Along with the...
Evident from my past entries, the pretty pieces in this ensemble may look familiar to you, in one way or another. My Union Jack shirt, One Teaspoon shorts and Gold Dot booties are all adored and so they make another appearance on my blushing blog. This is what I wore to a lunch date with my favorite boy as we celebrated a Happy 8th last October 24th. ;) What I wore: Beige Union Jack shirt...

Do the Polka
Due to my continuing amour for the maxi fancy, I knew I had to purchase this perky polka dot piece the moment I laid my eyes on it as I was shopping in Bangkok. It was no picnic to whip up a well-made ensemble with busy circles but I assumed that one can never go wrong with grabbing a sheer top. ‘Twas a plus that my trendy tassels went well with the whole garb! What I wore: White sheer...
Fabulous Brazilian brand, Ipanema exhibited its au courant Resort Wear Collection during the sixth day of Philippine Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2012. Five infallible fashion designers, notably Anthony Nocom, Dave Ocampo, Lyle Ibanez, Raoul Ramirez and Catherine Cavilte ruled the runway with stylish staples that will truly turn heads as one strolls down the shore.
Be my Batman
This is my dressed down ensemble for DLSU’s Best Dressed shoot, utterly inspired from the exquisite Ena of Lookbook.nu. I love how maxi skirts give off an easy, breezy and effeminate feel. Versatility wise, they can be dressed up or dressed down- as what I aimed to achieve with this look. My cropped Batman shirt did the trick to cinch an elongated edge so as not to trim my height. ;) What...
Cheers to the Freakin' Weekend
Halloweekend, that is! This year, my loveys and I made it a point to dress to the nines and party it up for Halloween. Albeit our costumes thrown together at the last minute along with unforeseen circumstances that got in the way, we still had a blissful bash and we vouched that this would be an annual act- with bigger and better costumes next year. ;) P.S. Is it apparent enough that Gabby and I...

Crop tops paired with jeggings are one of my no-fail sluggish attires. This unexceptional Wednesday, I decided to upgrade my classic combination by pulling off my colored jeans that I last wore back in high school, circa 2008! In addition to that, I opted to take my sky high wedges out for a spin. ;) What I wore: Cupcake graphic printed cropped top [Bangkok], Turquoise colored jeans, Light pink...
Subsequent to the L’Oréal Paris presents Michael Cinco show, my beautiful blog friends and I got going to Guess, merci beaucoup to Reg and Katie for my invite. :) Youthful and effervescent party lights dripped from the runway ceiling which caught my eyes. Seeing this setup, I expected a lively spectacle and without a doubt, it was! Distinguished disk jockey Sanya Smith opened the runway with...
Sheer tops are very versatile pieces that you can pair with just about anything and everything. In addition to that, they give a subtly sexy semblance that I adore. For this look, I chose to don it with a ballerina skirt with playful prints, creating a lively ensemble. Bursts of sunshine yellow and ritzy royal blue complimented the whole look. ;) What I wore: Black sheer top [Hong Kong], Black...

For the past seven days, I have been out and about SMX Convention Center to take part in various shows for the much anticipated PFW Spring/ Summer 2012.
