All in a day!

15.10.09

I should be proud of myself, Queen Multitask. I can't leave the house without atleast 2 purpose of leaving (or maybe I am just a cheapstake and wouldnt want to spend my pamasahe for just one lakad! hahaha!)
Anyway, last Saturday, I held a shoot for my new headbands with my batchmate and friend from Candy Council of Cool (http://candymag.com/coc) Tracy as the photographer, and her friend Kirsten Rice as model.



I just have to say that this is the fastest photoshoot ever! We started 9am, weather cooperated and turned-off the rains for 3 hours, and packed up 11 am sharp! :D

Tracy Ayson and Kirsten Rice
The Photographer, The Model, and The Designer. (NAKS!)


People might think that photoshoots are all-fun and glam, but really, most of the time during shoots I just seat and watch...and watch..and watch some more..then assign another headdress, or style (when clothes are included) then watch again...or eat, or people-watch..haha! Anyway, The results afterwards (photos!) are the only rewards!---OH! Other than meeting new pretty (and talented!) people along the way! =)






(For more photos, and if interested with the products, do check out: Http://anagoncollection.multiply.com! :-) Thankyou!)


After my shoot, I went to glorietta via taxi because i cant bear the heat that time (yup! after raining hard that morning!). I spent the rest of the afternoon with my friends since highschool Ana and Tamemeh (Multiply username, real name: Me-an)




Because we were trying to save up for our nearing HK trip (October 22!) we decided to just hang out (tambay!) in Starbucks, and just fooled around. Haha! That's what I just love about these girls! I always believe that we have different friends with different roles (or things that you share common interest with, which made you and this friend *click* in the first place) --like "shopping friends", or "kainuman" (drinking buddies), or "church friend", "concerts partner"--in the case of Ana and Me-an, it's all about fooling around and being our crazy selves. :D






So, I just have to say, there's no dull moments with these two! =)


Mean: Anung gagawin mo mamaya?
Me: Tiger Pack party.
Me-an: Anung gagawin mo dun?
Me: Magpapa-cute.
HAHAHA


Me-an: Make up-an kita!


HAHAHA

Last stop for that day was in Ortigas for the Tiger Pack Appreciation Dinner. Tiger Pack is a group of UST alumni who supports Thomasian student-athletes. I signed up last summer since I've never been so active in UAAP Men's Basketball games than ever...And I find it difficult to buy tickets for the cheerdance competition inside the campus! I want to be part of a "school spirit"-group! =)




This was actually the first event of the Tiger Pack that I attended! =)
It was fun because of the games (they gave away box of beer and even a cellphone! but I was too shy to join! ;p), the program, the "special awards" for the Tigers, Dylan's joke time, video presentations, and watching the Tigers play haha. And of course, the photo-ops! :D


 Coach Pido Jarencio :)
Real-life Whitey, and my one-and-only favorite coach!

Feel free to view more pics HERE. =) Lately, I am not using Mutliply's private mode for my albums since I feel that there are lesser Multiply viewers now, and besides..there's nothing to hide! ;D (haha!)

Tip to Toe: (what i wore for a 9-to-11 day, the coverings that made me last the day! Hah! ;))
Head Band - with tiny ribbon, owned since college, reused now that bow-bands/Blairbands are okay again! ;D
Blue (drapey!) Dress/Top - Julia
Cover-up (drapey!) - SM
Peace-Love Necklace- Anagon Collection ;-)
Brown Shoes - Divi!



To finish this, let me quote from the last book I read (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stepher Chbosky)
"I guess I could tell people about Punk Rocky and walking home from school and things like that. Maybe these are my glory days, and I'm not even realizing it because they don't involve a ball."

May my ANAGON COLLECTION, PHOTOSHOOTS, TIME WITH FRIENDS, and TIGERS FAN-GIRLING (hahaha) be stories-to-tell someday, stories I'll tell my children and even children's children...and be happy that I have lived my life, and I have lived it well by doing things that I want. =)

Lazy Anagon and her Current Wish List

9.10.09

I am recently having a hard time working on my Collection. It's like I have no more time. I have ideas that I cant work on right away, and maybe Ive forgotten some of them already before I can even make them. My hatest part in this is when I already get the materials for certain Anagon projects, but ending up not being able to make them. Oh I'm such a mess! Lots of things are going on inside my head now, nothing in particular, nothing dead-serious, but I feel "busy being busy" and ending up not accomplishing anything! Hayayay!


Anyway, I turned down a total of THREE bazaars for this month: two with a gradeschool classmate that I met at the Candy Fair--she invited me to bazaars in Cuenca and Bellevue hotel here in Alabang. The third one is a recent invitation by a bazaar organizer, which will be held outside Glorietta 3--the one in front of HardRock and beside UCC and 6750. I turned down Mia's bazaars because it might be Marj's birthday of the year on those dates, while I turned down the Glorietta bazaar because of the rates and location. It's for P8k=5 days (next week already! which is another down-factor..I hate rushing!). Plus, the location might be near malls, BUT being near malls mean that people might opt to stay inside the airconditioned establishments than cross to our bazaar. (Cea Gonzales, 2009) Think of Glorietta 4 and how people, including yours truly, wouldnt want to cross to this building even if it's just one block away. Too lazy. ;p


Anyway, maybe I have to have the Hong Kong barx trip first before I get back to my organized-"high"-businesswoman self. Not that I am lagging around--I made new Bibs Collection yesterday, and just finished reworking the black Tough Hats left with me----But my room is still a mess, and there are still unfinished business, so I guess going to HK might drain my earnings all these months.....but it might be a good break from all these chaos. =)

Wish List:


Photo from stupidcelebrities.net (what a mean site, haha)
I want MK Olsen's fashion, but now I appreciate EVERYTHING about her! Haha!
I want her hair...Maybe I'll be "lightening" my mane few days from now. You think it will suit me? Haha!
I want wavy tresses too, but my hair is still short. Lets see what will happen, haha!



Photo from Babble.com
Here's another MK-Envy List: Her Bag. I want a big fringey bag just like that.
No I dont need it in same (hefty-priced) brand, but I feel that I dont have enough big bags for my everyday (or every Meet-ups/Suppliers-Day) use. It's chic, but still functional. =)





From the lipstickdiaries.com
Last but not the least, I want a "favorite black shoes" hehe! I want it to be in leather, with heels, and something I can wear with everything, day and night! =)


***


I think it's nice to have a style icon. It makes things easier for my materialistic-desires (haha) since I wouldnt need to follow everything beautiful that pops infront of me. Hehe!
Aside from that, it pays to have an Icon who isnt only a good dresser, but someone inspiring.

Maybe I'll be able accomplish my wishlist on my trip to HK!
Messed-up I may be now, that's a nice thing to look-forward-to this month =)
Yey! :D



I just have to post these...

8.10.09


Some looks on past events I attended:




For a NU Skin event thing of my bes, who was awarded that night--and also had a really nice speech which made me teary eyed hahaha. They said to wear black--I wasnt prepared and my pockets werent prepared as well with spending on a new outfit, so I used my long shirt/top--and wore it as dress. Wore it with silver headband (sparkly, because it's uso hahaha), my silver fringe chains necklace from Anagon Collection (yeah! haha!), and black pumps. Wasnt feeling thin that day, but then, maybe I am comfortable already in my own skin. To hell with excess baggage! :D I felt like a STAR! Hahaha!





***

Another event for the month is the Candy Fair, which happened on the day when the storm Ondoy struck the country, and left a lot of people helpless. =( Surprisingly, the fair pushed through even though it was raining hard that morning.





My Candy Girl outfit! Hot Pink, Black, White: Which, coincidentally, also the colors of this year's fair! :D




I was excited for the event since I've been looking forward to this every year: Candy Bazaar (where my Collection is always ALWAYS supported by the Candy Girls!), and also meeting with candy friends! =) This year though, few people were able to make it, lots cancelled on the same day. It was loads of fun still since I was able to roam around the event and watch the program and play in the different sponsors' booths--since my stall isnt as "dinumog" as the past years.



Anyway, really hope the Candy peeps are cooking a repeat for the year. It can even be a FUNd-Raising thing for the Ondoy victims, which I am sure all Candy Girls will willingly support and participate in. I love Candy Girls! =) Theyre all sweet and smart and fun-loving, like the magazine we all came to love all these years. ;)



XOXO,
TFC =)




PS: More photos and watch me at the Candy Fair 2009 Highlights: HERE

Hahaha! ;D

Everything is broken!

And I'm saying this in the most "un-emo" and un-Peyton Sawyer-ish way, since I meant that all my cheapo gadgets just gave up on me! ;p


Now here's my Alcatel phone, a flip phone that has been of-service to me for 2 (or 3?) years...and lately since I've been wanting a new phone, I kept on dropping (unintentionally) my poor "D.A." (phone's name, haha) resulting to a broken front radio-feature thing and pictures taken looked like Lomo photos! :D



My friends and I talked about this before, that when you want to change your phone, but it's still working and in tiptop shape, you subconsciously drop it or jsut throw it around...so that you'll have a more valid reason for getting a new one. Haha. But now that I have more expenses in mind (Hong Kong trip by end of the month with my friends!)...I settled on my DA, and took extra care of him again. Hehehe.

The black PC I've been using for years was bought from the money I won in the Banana Peel design contest (P20k). I wasnt really the O.C. type, and didnt care about virus, till it struck my PC months ago. I can still open my computer, although it's shutting down on it's own..I still force it open every now and then...Until weeks ago, when it completely gave up already. Been using my sister's laptop since. ;p Which isnt really convenient since she has school work, while my shop is ONLINE. Hassle.



And last but not the least, my dear ol FUJI camera, a hand-me-down from my mom, who also got it as pasalubong from relatives abroad. My barx call this cam (which some of them also own, bought from US too!) the "cheapo cam" since it's, i think, at around P3k only--but can take really decent shots. I dont really need bulky SLRs, so I was happy with Fuji---which I took with me in all UAAP games (seen on tv last season, while i was jumping up and down, yo! haha), out of towns (even in a snorkling trip to Palawan--dangers of getting soaked and all haha), out of the country (Marj!), barx gimmicks, unplanned gimmicks, basagans, taking food photos when I dine out (a special thing for me during my "Me-Times"), and of course, been the biggest help taking photos of each of my new accessories for Anagon Collection! But because I am, as I've said, really not OC, I kept on viewing pics from the cam while the cam is inside my bag, resulting to "error in lens" or something..and now the lens  do not pop out of the cam everytime I turn it on. =(





RIP
Fuji Fine Pix
2006(???)-October 2009
Cause of Death: Abused by owner.
May you now rest in peace



Anyway, yesterday I got hold of a new point-and-shoot cam (again, because I am kuripot and I want something handy/not bulky). I was straightforward to the camera shop owner in famous Hidalgo when I asked him "Ano po ang pinaka mura niyong camera?"


So I got myself a Nikon L19. =) That fast and instant! =) I tried to text pa my ate and Ana and Me-an for their insights on the camera brand/model..but I cant wait any longer (ate wanted me to think about it pa, Ana and Me-an want me to read reviews pa over the net).


When Fuji gave up on me, I felt the need for a replacement because I'll need to take pics of my Collection (or I will not earn from my online shop!)...and of course, to catch more memories!
I just cant live without a camera. =D

To more memories!
