I am, I am, I am a ZOMBIE

 My friend Nina and I decided to conduct a semi photo shoot ( we were just messing around with ourselves cuz' we know we will never have this kind of moment  since we'll be pretty busy soon with our career life). So we decided to wear something unusual for us, like something we do not normally wear everyday, something we feel awkward and uncomfy wearing .
 I decided to momsen-fy myself ( lately I am so smitten by Taylor Momsen's songs and fashion statement, I love her raccoon -like eyes, it's so mesmerizing :D) and wear a short shorts though it's not that uber short, 
( my parents do not allow me to wear short shorts, *don't ask me why*, I don't even  know  what's the rationale behind  it  O.o).

This bat- winged  BCBG MAXAZRIA top was a thrift find and it only cost 25php. I couldn't believe it even in my most dense dream that I will own a BCBG MAXAZRIA piece in a very cheap price. 
The top was still apparently new, that's why I was in awe when I bought it. 
Such a great bargain  ^___^

I actually look so awkward striking this pose, I don't know why I even strike this pose either O.o

So here's Nina :), I styled her with an off to work-ready to party look. She said she's not really into wearing this kind of style since like me we casually settled ourselves with a shirt, jeans and sneakers and viola we're off to go. She's really stunner right? ^.^

Such a pretty face  ^_________^. 
I couldn't even stop myself capturing more beauty shots from her.

Viola!! Viola!!!! Viola!!!

In our second look, I decided to wear something contrasting.
 I wore a victorian inspired  top paired with a rugged-looking shorts to make the look a little bit edgy and contemporary at the same time.

Nina decided to wear something androgynous, she said something that is so her.
So I paired her sweet sleeveless top with a plaid jacket to make the look a little more masculine and I also added the aviators for the finishing touch.
She still looks hot in an androgynous look right ?

and at the end of the shoot we took a some selcas :)
I am really lucky to have such a nice friend and a confidante in her.


Last VDAY I was so busy watching movies, eating bananas and anything edible and cleaning my messy room too. While arranging my books I saw a Grade 2 writing pad and as curious I am, I started reading what was written on it, it was mostly school stuffs and what to do's but there was this note that really made me so surprised reading it. I think I wrote it way back on 2008 after watching Angelina Jolie's WANTED movie.
 So here's the note :

Every scene was so breath-taking, leaving me always gasping for breath. I always have that " mouth wide open look" everytime Angelina moves... Well, she's really a goddess, the hottest chic in the world for me. Everytime she give that sexy look and when her lips curved, I can't stop thinking on how she'll probably put the world on fire.
Aside from enjoying watching Angelina's cool stunts, I was also awaken by Wesley Gibson's ( Shia Lebouf ) learned lesson; that it's a big no-no to say sorry all the time. Saying sorry all the time is just a sign of inferiority. People will just think that you're weak and there's this possibility that they will not value your worth nor give you the rightful respect you deserve..Here's one thing too, sometimes we need to be true to our emotions, like if we're angry then we should let it show instead of keeping it. It is terribly wrong to keep all our feelings to ourselves all the time, it might just explode. .... While having these realizations, a thought suddenly came up, a very brilliant idea XD : I'd like to learn the shooting technique in the movie so that I will be able to help eliminate those freakin' evil guys so that no more hearts will be broken and no more eyes will be crying and it will only be a survival of the stick-to-one and loyal males. In that way I think I can lessen up the miseries and pain pollution in our society.

So this is me during 2008, I was actually allergic to males, specifically those heartbreakers, maybe it was a repercussion of the one painful experience I had way back when I was still 16.
 It was a very painful experience maybe because it was my first time to feel something extraordinary towards someone and that someone left me hanging. He was so rude that he even deprived me with an explanation of his sudden change of emotion.
Despite his cruelty it is still hard for me to hate him nor forget him, I remember crying every night, heart beating so fast as If I'm drowning every time I see him walking past from me, looking at me as if he don't know me. It took me years, almost 4 years to forget the pain he's caused.
Today every time I reminisced those dark ages, it just make me laugh how foolish and impish I was before.
Though that experience was excruciatingly painful
 I am still thankful because it just made me mature enough to be able to let go.
 It made me realized too that I am a strong woman able to handle difficulties and pains like a boss :D

 The lace top was a gift from a friend( my mom's bestfriend) and the skirt was an old thrift- find. 
I think I bought it way back 2006 but I never wear it cause I forgot about it's existence in my closet :))

jour de Noël

Christmas day ^___^. I think 2010 was the happiest Christmas ever since 2005 ( though Christmas during my childhood years was the best ever ).  I don't have any reasons why it is the happiest, I just felt it. It's just one of those moments where you can't stop reminiscing. Everything that night was so serene and calm, Happines was just in our hearts, no words needed for us to exclaim to let each family members know how ecstatic we were for being together :)
I hope we will still be this happy for the incoming years.

This polka dot dress was thrifted and it only cost 30php ( yeah, I was so surprised by the price too XD) I couldn't even believe it at first, I kept on asking the seller just to confirm the price ( there's nothing wrong in being sure :D). The fabric was still good as new, it really look so conspicuously new, it was like it came straight from the tailor's shop. It was perfectly fit for my figure and I totally adore the style, it's so classy. It has a vintage-y vibe, it looks like it's from a 40's or 50's where dresses were A- line in shape with a flowing calf- length skirts.
I was supposed to wear a pearl necklace but my mom said no, she said I should make the look a little more contemporary ( I must obey the mother :D) so I ended up wearing a vintage necklace
from my grandmother and  vintage earrings from my mother ( her collection during her college days).
I Just can't help myself being addicted to vintage stuffs.
   Somebody should stop me now.Eekk!!!

huit et neuvième jour

A super late post, my apology. For the very very first time I was able to complete the nine mornings mass and  it feels so great. It feels like I achieve something. Attending the ninth day mass was like a celebration, everything's sparkling with happiness, the atmosphere was filled with kindness and everyone's wearing their big smile.
The happiest day ever :)

This red dress was  a gift from my mom. I feel so lazy that day that I just wear the dress as it is, no style tips pop out from my mind and so I just wear the dress plainly.

I wore this pink dress in the ninth morning. This is one of my fave from my closet, I just love the fitting, it's just so perfect for my size. I also love how it makes me look not fat. This is just a simple look yet I think classy, no need to excessorise, just don't forget to wear the two basic accessories : CONFIDENCE and your Pretty SMILE. ^____^

though I said earlier to not to forget wearing smiles, forgive me if I'm not smiling in most or all of my photos, such an irony of what I was talking earlier..LOL!!!
