Just A Phase

Image
Naalala ko lang, back in high school, I became part of an all-girls barkada, comprised of 16 excelling (yeheees, sorry buhatan nato ng bangko!) kids from the "pilot class", and head of the different high school sanctioned clubs. I remember now nalang na I never had a kabarkada in my club since 1st year cause all of them were presidents in their own group--from glee club, math club, outreach, computer, pep voice, pep squad, etcetera... And of course, yours truly, from Art Club. I had extra curricular activities here and there, but always dapat part ako ng Art Club.. And during my last year in high school, they voted for me as president and I guess it sort of gauged the whole life-track / life-path I've chosen since then.

Anyway! Big throwback lang since the past days had been a series of memory lane! But first, my ootd from the SM Doll Glam event, na nalimutan kong dresscode pala dapat is Doll (isang malaking DUH haha)

I know it's a trend, and trend-following here te…

Alodia Gosiengfiao and Tricia Gosingtian for SM Doll Glam Challenge

Image
When I got an invitation with the names Tricia Gosingtian and Alodia Gosiengfiao, I thought agad that I should be there. The two are pioneers when it comes to online presence, and I really admire their creativity and how far they are now in their own fields! I remember parin their Deviant Art days, how I enjoy browsing through their amazing photo shoots, mabusisi choice of set and costumes!
In line with this throwback, the event is actually The SM Store Beauty Section's Doll Glam Challenge. Exciting!!!

Katy Soundtracking

Image
Can't seem to stress my being a Katy Cat ([n.] A big fan of Katy Perry), and now more than ever--using her songs to motivate me while trying to seriously finish my allotted time on the gym's jog machine or stationary bike, down to my "background music" while on a crowded bus, rain blurring, fogging dramatically the window next to me.


On those days: I am feeling giddy and kilig.
Background music: Hummingbird Heartbeat
Lyrics: 
Even the seasons change
Our love still stays the same
You give me that hummingbird heartbeat
Spread my wings and make me fly!


On those days: I am feeling independent, a fighter.
Background Music: Roar
Lyrics: 
You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground!



On those days: I am feeling wanted, special.
Background Music: Dark Horse
Lyrics: 
So you wanna play with magic?
Boy you should know what you're fallin' for
Baby do you dare to do this
'Cause I'm comin' …

Braven Mira Wireless & Waterproof Speaker

Image
It's not an alarm clock (I still rely on my phone, hehe), but it's almost like that. The Braven Mira blasting my favorite songs every morning is becoming a new daily pick-me-upper. I also love that the stylish design of this speaker makes it a great add-on in the bookshelf.

All In & All-Out

Image
First of all, these grainy pictures bother me, haha. Though mas nakakabother my ka-OC-han when before I really don't care about picture-quality, carebears kung tabingi, putol, blur, lol. Anyway, that day Pax and I tried to take photos padin kahit na bigla nalang umulan. We just finished a meeting and on our way to the Delsey event.

Isa pang anyway, so the past days hindi ko alam kung ano ang sumapi sakin at bigla nalang akong nagpursigi mag gym. The first day, last Monday, I was dragging myself to finally use the 3-month Gold's Gym GC that I won last year. But since then ...I haven't missed a day na hindi nag gym.

Image
As a commemoration of its rich heritage, Delsey, in partnership with the French Embassy and Hola Magazine, hosted the Fête de la France – a celebration of French National Day held last July 22 at Greenbelt 3. Had a few glasses of wine, and enjoyed the Panggo band with Pax during this intimate event:

Beautiful pieces inspire me.

Expect these new selections every weekend next month--so for the Malaysian, Singaporean and Indonesian food lovers out there... ready your tummies!
Food trip buddies Rhea and Pax! :)

Eddie Bauer SM Aura Premier Launch

Image
Last Monday, I visited active lifestyle brand Eddie Bauer's second store in the Southeast Asia at the SM Aura Premiere. Aside from checking out the store, they also had a fashion show in the mall's activity center. It was an exciting brand discovery for me, the pieces and the way they put together the clothes from Eddie Bauer's new collection show reminded me so much of the normcore trend! A new favorite shop to visit soon? Sharing to you some of the happenings that day!

WIN: Lenovo x F21 Fashion Show Passes

I don't know if nastress ko na ng bongga how OC Tracy Ayson is (haha!). Her new quirks is that when she announced that she'll never post Instagram picture that came from her camera (from phone lang, yun na!)... Just because. Sooo we always make sure to also take pang-IG style pictures with her iPhone, and of course nadadamay nadin ako! :)

Patterns and Sporadicalness

Image
I love print-on-print, and I'm sometimes guilty of overdoing it. One time I was wearing too much shiz up to my bag--and even thought of accessorizing with a chunky necklace, as if the patterns were never enough! Hehehe. Anyway, so I kept it simple with a stripes-polkadots pairing last Saturday for the Share A Coke event. The highlight of the look, after all, is my new pair of Super Jelly Fitflop in electrifyin' blueee! :D
