Pre-Debut Photos


Hello everyone!

In my last post, I’ve announced the addition of two new categories (events and lifestyle) in my blog in order to let you guys get to know me more. So this post is going to be my first personal non-beaty related post! This brings me to my super weird title: YODO. I was talking to a friend last night and he mentioned a term to me which I found super funny! YODO. It means “You’re only debuting once.” Ha Ha Ha! I found it so funny I just had to make it the title of this post. I think you already have an idea of what this post is about! ;)

I recently turned 18 and being a girlie girl ever since I could talk, I just HAD to have a debut. I actually contemplated on being practical and just ask for money or something but I ended up choosing to have a debut because I think it’s also my mom’s secret fantasy to have one. haha. I wouldn’t have traded it for anything else! I did not have an event planner. I was the one who got the majority of the suppliers and my mom would accompany me to most of the meetings. The debut planning was such a perfect way for my mom and I to bond and I’m just so thankful that she was with me every step of the way. :)

For this post, I’ll be releasing the pre-debut photos which were shot by my fellow school mates and their team is called 11:11 Productions! They’re all so talented and so much fun to work with!


gorgeous gown by Veejay Floresca!

This sexy red dress is by Carlo Niu, my amazeballs stylist!

This black lace dress with lace appliques is a Carlo Niu creation as well.  <3

That’s it! :) Most of these photos were taken by Kara Chung and Migs Santiago. Hair and Makeup by Ms Pong Niu. Styling by Carlo Niu.

I also wanted to share what I’ve been up to lately! I’ve have been hailing accessories like a mad woman these past few days!

So… I accumulated all of this in a span of two days. haha! Well to be fair, I couldn’t shop much during this past sem and I promised to reward myself with some retail therapy. :) I think it’s quite obvious from this photo how much i lalalaloove necklaces! :)

That’s all for now! Watch out for my predebut teaser. :)

Love and Lipstick,
