Shock the World (G-Shock)
G-Shock’s Shock the World Tour finally landed in Manila just recently at Hyve Bonifacio Global City. I had a lot of fun at the event, mainly because Gshock creator Kikuo Ibe was such a joy to listen to.
Shock The World (STW) events have been held all over the world last year to commemorate G-Shock’s 30th anniversary. It has sent shock waves to more than 50 cities globally, including Hong Kong, New York, Paris, London, Barcelona, and now, Manila.

In Full Bloom
Hello everyone! How has your weekend been?
Mine has been wonderful, and I couldn’t ask for a better V-day weekend. I really felt the love, from family, friends, and of course, you know who you are, thank you! Thank you all for one of my happiest birthday celebrations last weekend, and of course, on the day of my birthday, Monday. Thank you for the surprises, I really appreciated them. Thank you Lord for granting me another wish this year, and blessing me with the wonderful people in my life right now.
I’m always so excited when my birthday month comes. Cheers everyone! For many more birthdays to come. :)
Since it was Valentine’s Day, I thought nothing could be more romantic than wearing a dainty floral dress. Since the dress had a really vibrant, busy floral print, I didn’t accessorize anymore.
While everybody else is posting Valentine’s date outfit ideas, here I am posting a beach look! It’s so hot in Manila lately, close to summer’s usual temperature, so I’m back to wearing summer looks.
Plus, I’m so excited about #LaBoracay2014 with my best college buds! I even got my new bikinis from Yamamay already! Yup, that’s how excited I am, I’m planning outfits for the trip, this early!
Anyhoo, back to my look, I got this romper from Bloggers United a few years back, if I remember correctly, I got this from Tin Iglesias. At first I was hesitant to buy it as the size is bigger than my usual size in Forever 21, but then I realized the loose fit was perfect for the laidback beach life.
Adidas SS 2014 (Topshop and Jeremy Scott)
I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaack! I’ve had so much to do lately, and so many commitments to fulfill that I have regrettably ignored this blog at the moment. No worries, I’m back! And ready with posts for you, along with a few more giveaways!
First things first, Topshop, one of the brands that I love, just announced a collaboration with adidas, another brand that I love. So yay!!
Justice: Every Girl’s Dream
Stepping into a Justice store is just amazing. You’ll get a full on explosion of color, in every size and shape there is.
I got invited to the store’s Alabang Town Center branch launch, and I’m telling you, my jaw dropped when I stepped into the shop. I go bonkers with color, and this store had lots of it, neon, luminescent, vibrant, you name it, they probably have it. I only wish Justice was around when I was a tween. All I had back then were the Lisa Frank displays in Rustan’s, and that’s not even close to the selection Justice has! If you keep scrolling down this post, I’m sure you’ll squeal along with me!
Justice is a tween’s dream, catering mainly to the 7-14 age group, the store carries sizes up until 16. They have clothes, bags, shoes, swimwear, toys, stationery, and even cute funky headphones! I got myself a pair of shorts (size 14, yay!), and a really cute bikini bag.

My 2013 has been crazy, there were a few times where I was way up, but also a few where I was way down. Through it all, I’m proud to be where I am now. I have also found a renewed faith in God, in that whatever comes my way, I know God will never put me through anything I can’t handle. Thank you, for being there, my blog wouldn’t be up and running without all of you around. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
It was a casual day out with friends when I wore this out. The weather was being unpredictable, hot this hour, and really breezy the next. To solve the weather problem I wore a fool proof formula outfit. Blazer + Breezy Top + Soft Jeggings. If it gets hot, I’ll just take my blazer off and I’m good to go.
I also wanted to flaunt my newly colored hair, so to bring that out, I wore blue.
New Year, New Hair (Creations Salon by Lourd Ramos)
I always have something done to my hair before the year ends. I guess you could call me superstitious that way, as cutting ones’ hair symbolizes letting go, turning over a new leaf, and the like. I do it anyway, as a personal tradition, and to change up my look once in a while. This year, I had my hair re-colored and trimmed at Creations Salon Taft branch. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, the staff was accommodating, and addressed my every concern. They also got the color I wanted, yay!
First let me take you through the salon:
Season of Giving
2013 has been a hard year for us Filipinos. It is fortunate that we are resilient, and rise above each of these disasters stronger, wiser, and better than before. It is also so amazing how each and every one of our countrymen give to the best that they can, just to support a cause, especially now, for our brothers and sisters affected by Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan. This Christmas, even more people are coming up with different venues to help.
Ayala Malls has come up with a series of silent auctions, entitled The Joy of Giving and Sharing, where proceeds will go to Bulig Bisaya, again for the relief efforts and rehabilitation of the affected areas.
My favorite dessert hang out in Timog Ave., Paire Cocktails and Pastries hosted RePaire, an event where they launched an art auction and put together great minds for an idea session. Proceeds will also go to Relief PH.
