Last Tuesday was my Happy Day! I was supposed to wear yellow, only to 
realize that most of my yellow articles of clothing are UST apparel (lol). 
Decided to just give the seafoam green dress a repeat performance (worn here without blazer),
and then paired it with moremore pale colors like blush, tan and white. My favorites.

Pale Pink Blazer - Forever 21
Seafoam Green Dress - Zara
Pale Pink Wedges - SM Parisian
Chocolate Brown Bag - Coach
Watch - Aldo
Photo by Tracy Ayson, thank you!

Feel ko it's because I started the day right. How? 
Pagkakagising na pagkagising palang, assume / think / CLAIM! that today is a GREAT day!
Nakakatawa, even Manila's eternal beach weather,
and even yung super init, silyang pambata "aircon" bus na nasakyan ko going to events,
and kahit deadz sa pagod noong araw na yon (jumped from Edsa Shang to MOA to Mega Mall!) 
.... I felt that the day was perfect.

Tired doesn't mean BV na. Things not going my way doesn't mean fail na.
Not knowing everything doesn't mean all else were lies.
There are much more beautiful things... Like sharing, like friendship, and like forgiveness,
even without thorough reasons to give them away.

BTW! I colored my hair bright red that morning... Using the P50 box of hair dye I bought
from Shopwise last weekend, hehe. Tipid meals!

Spent almost the whole day with my blog girls Tracy and Sarah. Sabi nila, the best days are often 
the ones when we forget to take out our cameras. No documentations (not even pang instagram!) 
but we went from meeting Jessica Sanchez, wasted time in a donuts shop in MOA, tried
to mingle at the Rajo! Parisian x Milanos Event in SMX, and then escaped
the whole bloggers scene, jumped in a taxi , had the looongest cab ride of our lives where best
conversations were held... Only to reach Mega Mall in time for the premiere of Perks of Being
a Wallflower! As in when we entered cinema 9 (thanks Niche!!!), saka lang pumatay yung ilaw
as if kami talaga ang hinihintay!

When the film ended, seated at the highest and the very last row of the huge cinema,
the three of us started clapping. Perfect way to end a Happy Day! 
Parang mga hindi pagod! Tracy began all the shouting: "I SUPER LOVE THE FILM!"
And then Sarah followed, giggling, with: "WE ARE INFINITE!"...
I went with: "BEST DAY EVER!"

And although the cinema started to quiet down, and I only hear murmurs of approval from the
satisfied audience, we, all three of us, started laughing and shouting and raising both our hands.

This will be the most cliche thing I will write to end this post, lol,
....But as a line from page 39 of one of the best books of this generation goes:
"And in that moment, I swear we were infinite."

Shoegasm: Rajo x Parisian + Milanos

Sweeter the second time around, Sir Rajo Laurel collaborated with SM Parisian once again, having launched the brand’s first ever designer capsule collection for women last year. For this year, the collection is inspired by the Japanese culture. My top three picks from the HANAMI Rajo! for Parisian Collection are all from the suede category:

1) MIFUNE in Moss Green - P1,499.75
I love the color, the chunky heels, and the tupi-tupi effect sa harapan, na parang origami! :)

2) OSHIMA in Orange / Fuchsia - P2,199.75
Also available in plum/black and beige/dark beige (mas covet ko--neutral!). 
Bet ko lang na two-tone and the eccentric heels!

3) SAKURA in Red - P1,999.75
Also available in black. Looks comfy, and the tassel deets made the shoes "so-me"!

Here are the other designs, what are your personal top three?

For men: Milanos

I can't wait to have a Rajo pair I can call my own...
Giving myself till this weekend! ;)

Rajo! for Parisian will be available on September 29, 2012 at the following SM Department Stores nationwide: SM Mall of Asia, SM North Edsa, SM Makati, SM Megamall, SM Cubao, SM San Lazaro, SM Manila, SM Fairview, SM Las Piñas, SM Bacoor, SM Dasmariñas, SM Lucena, SM Lipa, SM Baguio, SM Pampanga, SM Clark, SM Marilao, SM Cebu, SM Lanang, and SM Mandurriao.

Jessica Sanchez for BENCH

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Nung nagiging matunog palang name ni Jessica Sanchez nung AI Season 11,
I searched her sa Youtube (hindi kasi ako nakakawatch ng TV that time haha)...
And I found this old vid niya, singing Greatest Love of All:

Another one, 13-year-old Jessica Sanchez singing Stand Up for Love, one of my
favorite lakas-maka-antig songs!

Favorite AI performance ko siguro is her rendition of I Will Always Love You, na binanggit din niya during the press con.  Prior to appearing on American Idol, Sanchez joined the first season of America's Got Talent at the young age of eleven. At seventeen years old, she has indeed come a long way. In fact, her reach now spreads as far as fashion, with her latest turn as one of Bench’s newest, internationally recognized faces!

Some photos from yesterday's press con with the proud Pinay Jessica Sanchez from American Idol Season 11
held in the EDSA Shangrila Hotel:

With the pretty Ginger Conejero (I love her speaking voice!)

 I think what I discovered from "meeting" Jessica is that hindi sha pretentious. Hindi niya kailangang
magpaimpress sa crowd, na usual ginagawa ng iba artists na nagvivisit dito. Although I'm a
sucker for bands na ma-PR kung maka "Hello Manila!" at "I can eat adobo everyday!" (lolz)... At least
we know that with Jessica, no BS. Just pure global talent!

 Although no frills is cool, I was still kindof hoping na kumanta sha that afternoon, haha.
I was looking forward to that, though dapat pala nagsisisigaw ako ng SAMPLE! SAMPLE! 
Hahaha, baka naibato ako palabas ng howtelz. ;p

Congratulations Sir Ben Chan for another big name addition to your growing Bench Family!

Take on the lifestyle of a true blue idol, wear Bench’s holiday collection as modeled by its latest Global Benchsetter:
 Jessica looks comfy and charming in a bright green statement top

Come home to sequins

Sing with Jessica Sanchez, Bench’s latest endorser
