Month: February 2012

Photos and Good Company

Melai of Style and Soul invited me to go to Status Magazine’s event featuring London based photographer Perou. Because it was about photography, I brought along Fran and Alyssa, who were both getting good at it. Unfortunately, our Pharmacology class ended at around 6pm, which meant that we were going to be late for the event. Boohoo. We arrived just in time, 7:30 I think, as the exhibit at the Ayala Museum will only be until 8pm.

here’s Alyssa’s attempt at copying the photo pose. haha

After the event, we chanced upon our college friend, Eric!

We decided to have dinner at John and Yoko afterwards, and met Ryan there too.

Yay food!

Bloggers United is back with a special project this 2012 – INDIE FRIDAYS! It is an event that aims to provide a platform for independent and promising young individuals in the field of fashion, music and film to showcase their gift and creativity. The social media community is teeming with undiscovered talents and we at Bloggers United would like to give them exposure outside the world wide web for a moment to truly shine.
Fridays at Il Ponticiello will never be the same as we transform it to a multimedia hub where all artists and social media mavens can converge, network and jump start a possible shot at their desired industry. The last day of the week will be a mix of various fields as we provide a venue for:
1) Youtube artists or starting musicians to play for live audience
2) Budding designers and fashion entrepreneurs to launch their line
3) Indie filmmakers to display their videos or short films
4) Photographers and stylists to exhibit their portfolio
For this Friday, Feb 17, we would be featuring Raleene and Riz Cabrera of Walkie Talkies with event host and front act, DJ Boom of 91.5 Big Radio.ย 
The event will be held atย IL Ponticiello, 2nd Floor, Antel Bldg. Valero St., Salcedo Village, Makati

The It List Project: Organize Me

I’m a generally unorganized person, although I do have attempts to be more “in order”, like keeping a planner, and having a semi-arranged desk. But that’s about it. I categorize my closet only around 4 times in a year, and the rest of the time, my closet’s just one big mess of clothing. As for my daily bag, school bag, well, I keep a small bag organizer inside, but that’s the only thing in my bag that’s well kept, as for everything else? well, let’s just say that my stuff are in a mumbo jumbo. LOL

Meet, My Peach House, my savior. haha

They sell this handy organizer, that’s really adorable! It’s perfect for your traveling necessities, not only is it functional, it’s sturdy too!
