H is for Havaianas

Ok, so I totally almost ditched this Style A-Z blog project, haha. Anyway, along with the other Hs in The One Hundred by Nina Garcia, I chose to wear my Havaianas when Ana and I hit the beach weeks ago. I hate wearing my flipflops when going out to the mall kasi ang dumi sa paa, although I remember way back in college, tsinelas kung tsinelas lang ang alam kong suotin, haha! At take note, hindi pa Havaianas yun a, hahaha!

I brought just this pair with me in our Dos Palmas trip. I would have wanted to bring LOTS of tsinelas (para bagay sa lahat ng suot, harharhar)...But sobra sobra naman yun--pwede na isang pares. Oh, to be honest, I haven't bought my own pair of "expensive tsinelas"--I just realized that kung hindi siya GC, gift siya sa akin! This pair is from my Ate, which she gave to me last Christmas! :) I am a big cheapo. ;)

"In Brazil, Havaianas are a national treasure. They are so essential, that they are sold in the supermarket right along with rice and beans."

"Sure they are cute, but the great appeal of the Havaianas is how butter-soft they are."

Quotes from The One Hundred.

Hoop Earrings

On a totally unrelated note, this one goes out to my fellow notebook lovers! :) I am almost (but not quite!) done with my brown Yeah Notebook, so I thought of getting another one before I run out of pages (or maybe that's just my excuse to buy a new notebook, yehey!). I got this really executive looking Green Apple notebook in National Bookstore, and for only 309 petot!

 I love that it has a marker thingie, with really nice "parang mahalia" cover, plus the notebook has a lock na parang secret diary lang ang drama, hehe. The notebook comes in other colors din like blue and brown; this one is in A5 but I saw smaller versions of this too for those who are more "small notebook type of girl". The description of this ruled notebook says it has "Cream, acid-free paper, magnetic cover with flap and lock. Expandable inner pocket":

I swear I'll finish up my other notebook first before using this! :)


  1. love the notebook! ^^. Parang ang chic chic, ^^

  2. Super love this din! :D Ang chica noh?? :D hahaha! May texture ang cover kainlab haha ;D

  3. There was a time I was super addicted to Havaianas. As in I currently have 12 pairs lol. Ang sakit sa wallet when I think about it now XD

  5. the notebook looks "mahal" indeed! :) i'm also quite addicted to notebooks. kahit di ko kelangan, as long as maganda ung cover, i buy it! hahahaha ~ i love your havs. very simple but can be matched easily with a lot of outfits.♥

  6. love the notebook, been wanting to buy those Moleskine ones from fully booked that look like that but they're too expensive! Maybe i'll walk to national tom. hehe :)

  7. Pareho tayo. My flip flops right now are hand-me-ups from my little sister. Lumang luma na but as long as nasusuot ko pa, hindi ko pa talaga sya itatapon. :))
