    I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day

    I haven’t posted an outfit post in a while.. Part of the reason why is because I thought that it would be better to focus on what I’m most knowledgable about: makeup and beauty. But recently, I’ve been feeling bored with doing just makeup. And I remember how fun it was to take outfit photos, occasionally. So I thought about giving it a try once again. New year and all. :)

    So for Josh’s birthday we went to Tagaytay Highlands with his family. I got extra dolled up because I knew that we would be taking lots of photos, hence this post. Hehe.

    I’ve recently found a crazy obsession about off shoulder tops because they’re so flattering! Surprisingly, it’s not very easy to find off shoulder tops. I don’t know why. haha. But I finally found one in a super cute color at Kamiseta. I then paired it with a denim skirt and my new white Stan Smiths from the boyfie. And.. Tada! My go-to look these days.

    That’s it for now! I’d love to hear from you.. Whether I should continue doing these OOTD’s or not. hehe.

    Have a Happy New Year, everyone!

    I haven’t posted an outfit and makeup post for the longest time! I’m taking a break from all my beauty related posts with a fashion post! Again, I don’t want to tag myself as a fashion blogger because I’m not but I like to share my personal once in a while. :)

    Here’s what I wore to this year’s Shindig Illusso. I love Shindig because it’s the only event of the year where I can really dress up. That, and I’ve been going every since I was in freshman year! I was really busy last week so I put together this outfit from F21 just a few days before the party.

    I love embellished pieces which is why I immediately grabbed this gorgeous pair of short and built my entire outfit around it. I accessorized with gold pieces to complete my look.

    My makeup for the night:

    I decided to go for a classic bronzy smokey eye with a “flawless” dewy face, and a wearable nude color for my lips. I took pictures after the event which explains why my outfit makeup could have looked a bit washed out already.

    LOTD AND FOTD: Cinderella Blue

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    I haven’t posted an LOTD AND FOTD in the longest time! I decided to take some photos of my look from Josh’s Uncle Abot and Auntie Chryssta’s beautiful wedding which was just held last friday at White Space! It was a simple yet magical gathering to witness two people who have dedicated their lives to God renew their vows. The whole event was straight to the point yet meaningful! And omg the food was amazing. <3

    I wasn’t planning on having a dress custom made but when i found out that the attire was formal, I kind of panicked because I don’t have any long gowns in my closet. I contacted the first company I knew that makes custom made gowns: Haute Lifestyle. I’m a huge fan of their RTW items (Apartment 8) which is why I felt like I could trust their more upscale sister company, Haute Lifestyle. Josh (what a cute name for an equally charming girl) was assigned to design my dress. I asked her to design something that was simple yet kind of unique and of course it had to fit my budget of P6000. It also had to be PG-13 HAHA because I really wanted to make a nice impression on Josh’s family. :) She sketched something for me which I immediately loved but I had to stretch my budget a bit higher to P7500. Prior to my second fitting, I’d like to note that it wasn’t very easy to contact the only number they posted on their instagram account. On my second fitting, I was surprised to find that my gown was made out of pure jersey material and no boning at all. I was a bit shocked that it didn’t have the simple structure a gown would have for it’s price. It’s a good thing, my guardian angel Josh (the designer HA, not my boyfriend) was easy to talk to and she talked her boss into reconstructing my gown with boning for FREE! They were able to do everything in exactly a week which is impressive in my opinion. I do feel like I want to make some minor adjustments but the gown was lovely overall. Scroll down for more photos!

    Here are some of my photos:

    I took some makeup and outfit photos but lot of them were taken from my phone. I don’t take amazing pictures which is why I really don’t feel comfortable taking my olympus pen to events (I have a really low self esteem when it comes to taking pictures </3) AND I just don’t feel so comfortable making fashion blogger-y posts in public! :( These will have to do for now until I figure out a way to pose in public and figure out a way to consider the time I need when I take photos. I usually get ready so slowly and Josh ends up waiting for me to finish getting ready. In the end, I run out of time to take outfit photos. :(

    My extremely simple dresses needed some bling so I rushed to Ever New just a day before the wedding and picked this pretty necklace!

    my hair was done by Maui from Blo Rockwell

    yes, I was taking HAIR SELFIES. It wasn’t easy to take these. :))

    I did my own makeup!

    benefit hello flawless foundation, The Face Shop eyebrow pencil, shady lade eye palette from theBalm, Bahama Mama by theBalm for contouring, MAC extra dimension skinfinish for highlighting, IN2IT eyeliner, MAC angel for the lips, and demi lashes from the Face Shop

    I also bought my shoes last minute from So Fab!

    finally, with my prince. :)

    Geometric Triangles

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    It’s been a while since I posted an outfit post! :)

    I’d just like to share an outfit that I wore to a lunch date with the boyfriend HEEHEE. Here’s what I wore:

    I had to wear something a bit conservative because Josh and I attended a church service before our lunch date! :) I picked out this peplum top from HnM and paired it with my super comfortable leggings! I don’t like wearing jeans so much so to me, leggings are the closest thing to actual jeans! For some weird reason, I really enjoy wearing flats! Despite seeing tons of fashion bloggers in heels, I still prefer wearing flats most of the time. Good thing I’m not a fashion blogger! HE HE.

    top from HnM, flats from payless

    HI. *awkward happy maxie pose*

    necklace from one of the stalls in st francis square! :)

    I accessorized my look with this necklace with geometric triangles hence the title. :) I paired it with another geometric looking ring from HnM!

    that’s it for now! :)

    Next to me

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    “Next to meeeeeeee ooooh-hooo.. Next to meeeeeeeeee oooh-hoo.” HAHAHA I couldn’t think of a title and this song (Next to Me by Emeli Sande) played while I was getting ready yesterday and it’s been stuck on my head ever since!

    I haven’t done an outfit-of-the-day post for a while now and I decided it was time for a new one! :) This is what I wore to my cousin’s first birthday party. :) I don’t think I’ll ever get used to posing in public so I decided to take these photos outside my room haha! I’d like to repeat that I am not a fashion blogger nor am I trying to be one. My blog is a lifestyle blog that focuses on beauty (my first love), some fashion (because I like to dress up), and food (my one true love)! <3

    I love that this dress from Apartment 8 came with a brown braided belt! My cousin’s party had a pink color scheme so I decided to go with another pastel color so as to avoid looking like I’m part of the decor haha. This outfit is kinda special because I had a “stylist” (josh) who helped me pick out my dress plus shoes!

    I almost wore my go-to nude pumps but josh wanted me to wear my salmon pumps which I think was a good idea because it added a pop of color to my look. I then paired everything with a teal and gold ring, gold earrings and my trusty gold casio watch.

    I love the print on the back. The “x” design of the straps are a plus too!

    Hair and Makeup

    I got my hair done at Blo Blow Dry Bar in Rockwell. I asked them to braid my hair just because I felt like it would match my dress!

    I chose a neutral smokey eye and applied my fave demi lashes from the face shop. I wore demi lashes to make the whole look very natural and not too dramatic. I paired it with a nude lip using my etude house lipstick. <3

    For a pop of color, I used a teal eyeshadow to line my eyes. I feel like it made the whole look very fresh and young!

    With my stylist for the day! I love that he always has something to say when it comes to my outfit and makeup looks but he lets me decide for myself in the end anyway. :D he’s the best!

    LOTD: Nude and Lace

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    I originally wanted to include my LOTD in my previous blog post but I felt like my blog post would be too long if I include this LOTD! :) This is the outfit that I wore to an interview for my panini stall business, New York Minute Paninis which will be featured on Anton Diaz’s blog, Our Awesome Planet. I also attended my brother’s high school graduation so I had to choose an outfit which was appropriate for the interview, graduation ceremony, and graduation dinner. Here’s what I came up with:

    dress from F21 paired with my trusty nude pumps from Michael Antonio 

    my favorite part of this dress is the lace detail on each side of the dress! you can actually see through my dress and see my skin. haha. but i like it because the “sexy-ness” is very subtle.

    I paired everything with gold accessories just because I looove the color combination of gold and nude! <3

    gold cuff from H&M

    gold bracelets from my grandma and rose gold watch from Michael Kors

    I just wanna share some of the photos that I took for the day! :)

    i look extremely short here! I threw in a blazer when I was watching my brother’s graduation ceremony because my high school has a strict dress code (it was within reason, of course) and I didn’t want to look disrespectful even if I wasn’t bound to the dress code anymore. I also wore flats because I didn’t wanna look overdressed! :)

    with my high school barkada/sunnyshine-who-I-wanna-put-in-my-pocket-so-that-I’ll-have-a-pocket-full-of-sunshine (hehe corny)/trueeee friend/stage sister, NIKKI G. :)

    *guess who took this photo from a super high angle* -___-

    with the best! :) He stayed with me all throughout the day. hehe

    We had dinner at Sugi for my brother’s graduation dinner. I lost the blazer and changed into heels. teehee!

    meet my twin and my beautiful mother dearest! I don’t have a decent photo of my brother in his graduation toga. :( I actually have one but his lady friend is in it and he’ll kill me if I post it. TEEEHEEE. :))

    For those who miss my beauty related posts, FRET NOT (HAHA Drama lang)! My next posts will feature a post on the things I hauled from my recent trip to HK, a summer essentials post and a couple of reviews! Watch out for continuous beauty filled posts!! :)

    LOTD: Summer Calling My Name

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    Those who have been following my blog know that I recently went to Davao. Today I’ll be posting my one and only outfit post from Davao. We were too busy going around the place to take outfit photos. :( And we were travelling with 2 other families so it was sooo awkward having them watch me pose. The must have been judging me. HA HA. eek!

    Here are the photos! :)

    *I know that it’s not common to see outfit posts in different locations. However, I took photos in two places and I can’t decide which set to post so I’m posting both! This is my blog after all so anything goes. HAHA

    Dress from Forever 21

    these were taken at the Crocodile Farm :)

    What I wore as my arm candy…. I’ve been going crazy over these nicole bracelets that I recieved from The Clink Shop! They have it in so may different colors which are perfect for building up your arm candy! :) For this look, I picked these two gorgeous pastel bracelets to math my dress. :)

    Yes, I preferred to wear flip flops with this outfit because we went island hopping. :) These photos were taken at a Zorv ball park! Scroll down to watch a video of me in the Zorv ball. HAHA

    And… Here’s the video! :) I look awkward, I know! haha I had to tie up my dress to be able to ride the zorv ball so.. yeah. :))

    My brother insisted on taking the camera into the zorv ball so here’s the result. :D

    PS: I’ll be hosting my giveaway very very soon!!! Watch out for it. ;)
