You guys know I love bargain shopping, right? So last November, I ventured over to a flea market in Baguio and dig some hardcore snooping and got this absolutely cool pullover for only 80 pesos!!! Loving this big comfy sweater so much I want to wear it everyday (yes, kahit mainit sa pilipinas, i don’t care! lol). Anyway, I wore this outfit during our family’s bonding experience to Disney on Ice’s Treasure Trove. Uhhh…such a fun fun day! Will post the photos next week :) And oh! Can I just say that I’m totally digging the background? Sakto police intern tas may selda sa likod. HAHAHA!

Have an awesome day lovelies!

It’s saturday already but…I will say right up front that rules are meant to be broken haha. I am such a bad blogger, I know and I’m sorry. Yesterday was quite a busy day for me. Took my prelim exam, ran afternoon errands and attended a birthday party. Really tiring but it is by far the happiest friday the 13th! Due to all of these, I run out of time editing my photos and blog about my fashion friday post. So yeah, that’s why! Hahahaha super explain lang loljk.

Anyway, this is what I wore to the TAFA Year 2 (Trinitian Awards for the Arts). I won as best dressed again! Yayy! And I also took home two awards which I’ll blog in a separate post :)

Enjoy the rest of the night everyone!

PS: Hi to my new lovely followers! Thank y’all <3

OCT-OVER RECAP

Stepping out of my comfort zone last month to start working on my dreams was a surreal experience. I don’t have words to express my feelings, it was strange, nonetheless, to be in front of many people. The bright lights and the continuous camera shutter sound while walking down the runway was really nerve-racking but it was the best, magical nerve-racking moment of my life so far.

October 4-5

Brand Festival: Mode Elle goes SM City Novaliches! And yes, this is my first ever hosting gig. Yayy! Thank you so much to the House of Mode Elle, especially to Sir Allen for this wonderful experience :)

October 23

Likha Teen Edition: A Walk for Life at Amoranto Theater. Hosted the event plus modeled for Matrix Philippines and Sir Alfie Guiday. Special thanks to Sir Niño Ramirez who designed the beautiful peplum dress I’m wearing that night.

So yeah, that’s how I spent my October!!! It is like a breath of fresh air. And once again, I was just reminded of how blessed I am. Lord, thank you! 

PS: Keep safe everyoneStay indoors, keep yourself warm and let’s not forget to pray.

Once upon a time, I was sitting in my bed with a tiny pen in my hand and a big idea in my head. “What if I’ll put up a blog and post about my paintings, photographs, outfits and random thoughts?” It felt like crazy talk. I had no idea where to begin. When I wrote my very first post, I had no idea what I was in for. I didn’t imagine it would lead me to spend a day of my summer in the Philippine Fashion Week with a bunch of famous fashion designers and bloggers. Or come across people in the fashion industry like Nina Garcia, Michael Cinco, Rajo Laurel, Allison Harvard and whatnot. Or be featured in Philippine Daily Inquirer’s 2BU Lifestyle as best street style. Or get approached by STATUS Magazine for an outfit photo. Or see my paintings, photographs and my face printed in a glossy school magazine. Or even have a job offer as an event photographer. Because of my blog, I have a place to share things that I don’t want to be forgotten. I have a place where people can come get to know me from a place of total freedom.

Today, I’m celebrating my third year. At this point, blogging has taken up a huge chunk of my free time. This ministry has changed my life. The emails I receive from strangers have changed me. The encouragement and support from my readers has changed me. The criticism I have received from other people has changed me. The writing of other bloggers in the blogosphere has changed me. I have never been more confident in my life that this is the task God prepared in advance for me to do. And like what I said before, “Improvements have been made. I’ve learned so much about my passions and my potentials. I’ve shared things I would have never thought I would or could.”

Fast for­ward to today, and my whole vision has shuffled, largely because of my blog. Sim­ply put, blog­ging about my life has transformed my relationship to it. It’s gone from being a source of happiness and difficulty to being my sub­ject. Blogging motivates me to get things done. The desire for valuable content encourages me to move forward in my various projects every single day.  I am 100% positive that I have been more productive in the last couple of months than ever before.  I start to see what it has to teach me and how, in shar­ing it, I can maybe even help others. Today and every day, I am thankful for my blog and my dearest readers.

Cheers to three years! <3
