Hi! The powder is mixed with food coloring so it’s easily washable. They don’t stain :)
my favorite romper from the Stradivarius fashion show
When brands like Forever 21, Uniqlo, Cotton On, hit the Philippine shores in the past few years, wanderlust shopaholics everywhere were praying fervently for the arrival of Bershka and Stradivarius. Since retails giants Mango and Zara, both from Spain, have been doing well for years now, the arrival of these two brands was inevitable.
Bershka and Stradivarius are also both Spanish brands, under the same mother company. They have distinct characteristics that set them apart from each other, without compromising their similar origin. Bershka is for the younger set, overflowing with bright colors and youthful energy, whereas, Stradivarius, inspired by music, attracts those who are into music, and laidback casual boho chic lifestyles.
As if the title doesn’t say it all. Let me lay it down for you. I have always been fascinated with Coachella, the music, the art, the people, and the partying. Coachella weekend is where everybody lets loose, and take music: indie, hippie, artsy fartsy music, on steroids. During Coachella, you’re only job is to enjoy the music, and have fun.
Remember this Instagram post? If you don’t, well let me refresh your memory. I was able to attend the Amigo Segurado presscon a few weeks ago. I went there without any expectations, as I didn’t actually know what the program would be, or who will be there. I haven’t been able to watch any of their TV ads, so I had no idea that Daniel Padilla and Richard Yap were actually their endorsers. I am no fan of the two, because I don’t watch local drama series, really. I do know that they’re pretty popular, Daniel being the face at all the #MedyoBadBoy meme’s all over facebook, and Richard being “Sir Chief”, the leading man behind the popular noontime series, “Please Be Careful with my Heart”. The latter, I only knew of when people around school spoofed the show.
When my friend Sef first saw me in this outfit, he said, “Nakakatawa yang outfit mo, mukha kang bata, at mabait, parang hindi ikaw.” In other words, my outfit screamed too much sweetness, and not a tiny bit of evil, which Sef thought of me. haha. So yeah, you could say this look would be uncharacteristic of me, but then again, if you look back at my look posts, I have a lot of sweet ones, like this polka dot number and this Little Lulu inspired one.
As promised, another giveaway right on Easter!

The running bug. I think the whole country has caught on to the health and fitness movement initiated by enthusiasts all over the world.
Nowadays, it’s common to see a poster for a 5K run, usually with a cause. You’ll see different sponsors, with their own advocacies, a run for breast cancer, a run for literacy, among others. Being a fitness junkie-wannabe myself, I have participated in a few runs for the past years. Emphasis on wannabe since I am not as disciplined as real fitness junkies. haha. Some of the 5K runs I’ve joined include my own college’s Pharmatakbo, to Outbreak BGC last year, to the most recent, Color Manila Run (photo below).
It was actually fun getting splattered with all the different colors, but I was a bit disappointed with Color Manila run. Why? First, the powder was merely thrown by hand at every station, no theatrics, no anything, just simple throwing, like babies playing with sand in the sandbox. Boring. Second, they ran out of powder, FAST. When I got to the 5th station, I had to make do with the powder on the sides of the tub to get myself some purple. Annoying, I hate it when people are unprepared when I paid good money for the experience. If it wasn’t for the pretty rainbow finisher medal, I would’ve been seriously pissed. Haha.
It is a good concept, running human rainbows, I just really hope it’s executed properly. I’m planning to join another run like it soon, named Color Dash 2013. This time, they’ll use choppers and everything, and this time, I was sort of guaranteed that I’ll get my money’s worth. :)
Yesterday, as we were looking for someplace to eat after Visita Iglesia, we had a difficult time looking for a restaurant serving lent-friendly food, meaning no meat. After a long time of driving around, we just settled on the Yellow Cab branch along Katipunan, and just ordered their lent friendly choices.
As I was looking at the menu, I realized that I haven’t blogged about Mega Sardines yet, and how they offered recipes that were actually perfect for the lenten season. Sometime last week, I was invited to their media launch for their upcoming cooking show entitled Everyday Creations, airing next April 4, Friday, at 6:30 pm, on the Lifestyle Channel.
After he had washed their feet, had put on his robe, and had returned to the table, he said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord—and you are right, for that is what I am. So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you. Very truly, I tell you, servants are not greater than their master, nor are messengers greater than the one who sent them.”
Have a holy Maundy Thursday everyone :)
Hey all!!! Did you miss me? I haven’t been able to blog within the week because school has been eating me alive lately. I have so many requirements to accomplish in so little time!
Before this post becomes inappropriate for lent, I’m posting it before Maundy Thursday! Haha. Sorry, that was so lame. I just want to show you guys one of the looks I’ve been dying to try out, but was never given the opportunity to do so.
