Full of firsts: A Boracay Travel Diary
Holla, amigos! I know I’ve been a bad blogger slash so MIA… like forever :( So, to finally make up on the things I haven’t shared yet with all the lovely readers of this blog, here’s a new post for all of youuu! :) In this post, I hope you’ll not judge me for being such a sort of bummer during summer. (woohoo that rhymes!!!) This post (for me), is to aspire everyone to pursue their dreams- so you can finally tick that tiny little box under your wishlist/s! <3
Firsts: To personally see how big an airplane is || To get inside on the airplane || To take a picture of it (may it be including your self or not!)
Firsts: Obviously, it was my first time to see a close-up image of the sky and see a small percentage of the whole population of houses in Metro Manila.
Firsts: This is my first legit vacation treat for myself (EVERYTHING THAT I’VE BOUGHT = LIKE HOTEL ACCOMMODATION + FLIGHT TICKET + FOOD & DRINKS… EVERYTHING CAME FROM MY OWN EARNINGS) || First time to visit a part of Visayas (and hopefully, more to go!!!)
This was totally random and cute! For me, this costume (or whatever you may like to call it) presents the rich culture of Aklan and the whole Visayas region. :)
Ooh, the waves of the beach <3
Going to Station 1 :)
Firsts: Try a spontaneous ride (what? haha!) :) The banana boat!
Cutting this “part one” post of my adventure at Boracay with a picture of mine during my second-day stay! Hoping you enjoyed viewing the photos! :)
My #ootd during the Manila Sundance Bazaar. Too bad, I don’t have other photos to post on my blog. :( I’ll make a detailed post about this look soon! :)
Cheers to my first official (and legit) outfit for 2014! Finally, I had the chance to update my blog with a fashion-related post that is coming straight from me and my lovely, trusty camera. By the way, here’s what I wore during my friend’s debut at Great Eastern Hotel last February 1st.
That night, I really wanted to look classy and formal. So as you can see on this ensemble, I wore classic and timeless pieces that will surely go to all when paired.
If you notice, I am wearing a LBD that is considered as one of a women’s closet essentials. To make a twist, I searched for a dress that has an exquisite details for it to standout with its own. Also, “less is more”. To this outfit, I wore less accessories to give more attention to my lace LBD.
Business at the front, party at the back. What can you say more with this lovely detail of this dress? :)
No make-up make-up and braids by my cousin, Christel. I love how natural my make-up looks like :)
To finally end this post, here’s a full-body photo (again) of mine! I hope you like my first #ootn to this blog! :)
P.S. I can say that I am now finally back to blogging :)
P.P.S Does anyone know someone whom I can hire to make my blog layout? I would love to change my theme as soon as for I already wrote or maybe draw the draft layout I’d like. :3

01/31/14: Show me the Money
If there is one thing that I observed in myself recently, that would be loving to go out wearing a skirt or leggings. Comparing myself now from the ‘old self’, I guess I’m over with the moment that I am afraid of getting weird and sinful stares from strangers. Somehow, I also guess that I’ve changed my way upon dressing. Notice that this isn’t really a detailed look at all. No accessories, and everything just feels so less.
Anyway, I wore this ensemble on the last day of January, when my cousin Christel and I had a bondate (bonding date) at TriNoma. I named this look as “Show me the Money” because that’s the print of my skirt + we spend a lot of money that day considering that we bought nothing but food. :)
#OOTD: Peter-pan collared top - Thrifted, Skirt - Ohmyglobph, Shoes - Parisian

Week pick: Vanilla Cupcake Bakery
INTRODUCING WEEK PICK!
Hi everyone. How’s your day going? I hope you’re having a good time as much as I am! :) Well, to give you a little update about the new things I try, buy and discover, here’s a new segment in my blog which I hope I can update regularly. Week Pick, from the word itself, is my weekly picks from food, gadget, fashion, blog, event and/or anything that tickles my fancy.
My first pick? Vanilla Cupcake Bakery!
I’ve always been a fan of quirky and cozy places while enjoying delectable treat/s that will surely satisfy my sweet cravings. So if there’s one thing that I really really wanted to go anytime of the day, that would be cupcake stores. :) Vanilla Cupcake Bakery not just only offer cupcakes in paper cupcake holders but also in a jar! How cute, right? :) Also, add the fact that their cupcakes taste so nice! Aaah, this is something that I hope you won’t missed especially if you’re near to Katipunan! :)
TOP PICK/S: Oreo Cheesecake (P135)
WHERE TO FIND: U.P. Town Center (that’s where I’d go hahaha!)
More week picks on the upcoming Sundays!!! :) Hope you’d try it and let me know if you liked it as well. :)
On the third Sunday of January, I wore black, white and stripes.
Recently, I’ve felt a change in the way I wear clothes. From printed to basics, from choosing between fashion or comfy, and from building a love-hate relationship with my recent style picks. I don’t know if you already experienced that point of your life too, when you just suddenly missed being your old self, but you just can’t go back for a certain reason, you, yourself can’t distinguish.
#OOTD:Sheer Polo - Thrifted, Camisole - Forever 21, Leggings - Uniqlo, Flats - My Shoe Room
Its a great year to start with especially when you receive this kind of message. Thank you, whoever you are. :) <3
Bloggers United 6: A photo diary
Hola, amazing Tumblr bloggers! How are you doing lately? I’m hoping that you’re a way happier especially when Christmas is getting near. :) Have you shopped for yourself for the much-awaited holiday? Its actually one of the most heart-whelming things that I consider every year. And being a bazaarista at heart, I already had my early Christmas shopping for myself, family and inaanaks!!! :) I had mine during the Bloggers United 6 and World Bazaar Festival! ;)
The place was so jam-packed and I can’t almost seem to move when the clock strikes by lunch time! I guess, this photo only shows the first half of the shoppers.
Clothes, shoes, accessories all in pocket-friendly prices.
Photobooth for free! Don’t you just love the layout? Very instax-y inspired! :)
With the living Barbie Doll, Verniece!
My friend, Arielle, with THE LAUREEN UY!
With the gorgeous, Patricia Prieto

Gotta end up this post with the big “world bazaar festival” thingy outside! Notice that we end up going home late. Haha :) We arrived there by 2 pm and went home by 7:30 pm! :p
