Cheers to a new year and another chance
for us to get it right.
-Oprah Winfrey 



A lot of awesome things happened to me this year 2012 especially in my blogging career  but I also experienced a lot of downs "on my personal life hmmm.. more sa lovelife, pbb teens lang?! hahahah ". Before I start talking/discussing that, let me first tell you guys how happy I am to achieve the things that I achieved this year 2012. This year 2012 on the month of April, my mom finally bought me a dslr camera  "after months and months of convincing her". It was a sweet graduation gift and from that moment  I knew that it was the start of everything.

Then I instantly posted some looks here in my blog and also in my Lookbook account, received a lot of positive comments, received invites from PR agencies, met cool and stylish bloggers and we became friends and still remain. I also received awesome stuff from local brands/online shops, I was lucky to get 2 fashion internships this year, got the chance to meet the owners of famous restaurants here in Manila and the best best thing that blogging gave to me is the privileged to express myself "Freedom!!!!!" but!...I think minalas ako this year when it comes to love..I know I'm still young and I will meet a lot of people after I graduate but what if that person you met and you  thought that person is the one you will love  for the rest of your life (diba drama lang, pagbigyan matatapos na ang taon!), I admit it I also made a lot of mistakes and break a lot of hearts this year so I want to take this oppurtunity to say "SORRY, THANK YOU AND GOODBYE" (odiba may ganung ganung pa ako?! ako na talaga!). Hopefully this year 2013 I found that really special person who will blew my heart and mind away.

This 2012 was awesome and I hope 2013 will be more epic, awesome, great, a lot great opportunities will come, more invites sa mga events, more cool stuff, meet old and new friends and good health to me and my family. ay oo nga pala one of the things that I really really wish to happen next year, is to be featured in Garage Magazine!!!!! please please. any feature will do. hahahahaha kahit sa likod lang ng cover ng mag niyo! hhaahha joke :).

Best of 2012: The Contemporary Boy way!

Now Let's talk hairstyles, personally hair is one of the things I always or should I say first thing that I fix every time I woke up in the morning "after opening my eyes and stretch for a little bit, I instantly go to the bathroom to see if my hair looks good". "Yeah I'm super vain". My signature hairstyle would be the blended short cut, thin on both sides and quite thick on the center (diba parang pizza commercial lang?!), because it's very easy to manage and easy to wash "lam niyo naman minsan nakakapagod din pag ayos ng ayos ng hair", so as the new year starts let's kick off or should I say welcome 2013 with a new hairstyle!.

Malapit na mag bagong taon, kaya kailangan na ng bagong look para mas lalong ma attract ang swerte sa ating buhay buhay at mas lalong maraming ma attract na girls at pati na rin ang mga beks! hahahahah.



The Wavy Top Heavy Cut

maganda tong hairstyle na to very trendy and fashyon!, kaya lang kung tamad ka mag ayos ng hair or kung ayaw mong nasasayang ang oras sa kaka-ayos hindi ito ang hairstyle na para saiyo pero kung ok lang saiyo edi gow!, good luck sa kaka blower at kaka suklay!. :))))

I know it takes many many days of decision making on what a celebrity will wear in his/her red carpet appearance, it could be an awards night, movie premier, met ball etc., and I also know that there are many people behind every actress's almost perfect look (effect of years of watching Rachel Zoe project).So before this year ends and for your pleasure of entertainment  here's a rundown of Hollywood Celebrities that need some "I think" styling help and a mirror before hitting the red carpet. 

What THE?!!!! $@#^#^@^@$#@&*^%7

My top 16 Disaster Red Carpet Looks of 2012

Before this year ends, I will abuse one of this year's biggest trends in street fashion the "Galaxy print". Galaxy prints are everywhere this year 2012, from shoes to leggings to shirt to bags my gaaaaaahd they are everywhere!!, It's like an outer space explosion!. Been seeing a lot of DIY tutorials of this print on Youtube and to some fashion blogs, these DIY tutorials inspired me to make one and I'm very very satisfied with the outcome of my galaxy print.

I've been dreaming ever since I was a child to explore the beauty and mysterious of outer space, hehe and one of the main reason why I want to explore the outer space because I want to see it E.T is there remember the 1982 film by Steven Spielberg (sorry for my weirdness guys). I remembered how fascinated I am with that movie, seeing E.T and his abilities my gaaaahd!,  I also remembered  that before I go to sleep I always include E.T to my prayers wishing that his spaceship will crash on top of our house and I will have my own E.T and we will always play and do awesome things in our backyard (fyi I was only 5 years old at that time). Because of that movie, it made me believed that there are other life forms up in the galaxy (we are not alone) but now I'm 17 years old, naaaaah! I'll just stick to galaxy print clothes. .

This Love is Supernatural Can you feel It?






















The night of Christmas, my friends from high school decided to meet up at my cousin's house (the girl in pink) coz I haven't seen them for like almost 8 months and I think this is the best time to catch up with each other, chill and party just like old times (high school days). Before we head to Tides at Timog, we went first at Eastwood to wait for our 2 friends and after waiting for like 2 hours and its already 9:00 p.m (we were there 7:00 p.m pa just to wait for them) because we were so impatient na, we decided to hit Timog without them. 

Tides grill and bistro is located at Panay Ave., South Triangle, Quezon City, near Pinoy Big Brother's house. Actually medyo nahirapan din kami hanapin tong Tides kaya yun ang laki ng bill namin sa Taxi kasi paikot- ikot kami tapos nandun lang pala! hahahhaha! Shunga ng taxi driver no?!. For more information about Tides grill and bistro you can visit their Facebook page click here

Merry Merry Christmas People! :)

Another must read book for the year 2013. Mr. Porter has officially launched their very first paperback book entitled "The Mr. Porter Paperback: The Manual for stylish Life Volume one." The book is 240 pages of fashion, interiors, cars, design, music plus insider tips, interviews and profile. Mr. Porter's Editor-in-Chief, Jeremy Langmead, works with book designer David Pearson and art director Leon St-Amour.

I've always been a fan of this online store "Mr. Porter" because they offer very stylish clothes that a stylish guy needs and I think they are the only online store that I know who helps guys what to wear on different occasions. I love the minimalism of this book classic and elegant, perfect display in my room. The Mr Porter paperback uses both matt and gloss paper stock inside, a mix of illuminating black-and-white and colour photography and illustration, and the cover is crafted with tradition later press printing methods. Each copy also comes with a red silk bookmark ribbon attached.

So for the year 2013 I must buy this book and I hope it will be available in the first month of the year 2013 in my favorite book stores here in Philippines but I think It's now available in their online store that costs £24.49 and it will be available in selected retailers on January 13th.

Happy Holidays everyone, I hope you're all enjoying your Christmas vacation and you already have a gift for your special someone, family, office mates etc. Today I'm absorbing the good vibes of Barry Manilow's song "Copacabana" (lumabas na naman yung pagka oldies ko). I've had enough listening to those Christmas songs that I always hear everywhere I go (shopping malls, grocery store, convenience stores and even in our house! my gaaahhddd) , It's not like I'm playing Grinch this holiday season I'm just so over it, so I've decided to search my mom's collections of old songs and there I found Barry Manilow's album Copacabana. I just love the rhythm and the beat of this song and every time I played it makes me want to take a vacation to Copacabana at Rio De Janeiro.

Last Monday I was invited to a Blogger's Conference of  the movie "Si Agimat, Si Enteng at Si Ako" a metro manila film festival entry. I'm all giddy and excited entering the venue (Annabel's Restaurant at Tomas Morato) because I'm excited to meet Vic Sotto "Enteng Kabisote, Bong Revilla "Agimat" and Ms. Judy Ann Santos "AKO" but unfortunately Mr..Bong Revilla and Ms. Judy Ann Santos were not able to come because of their hectic schedule and commitments, though the two were not able to come the event was definitely a success because of Vic Sotto's humorous answers and his joyful and motivating vibe.

Hype this look on lookbook click here!!

This is what I wore last Saturday to Bloggers United event held in World Trade Center.

The floral trend made an appearance last season and it's stronger than ever this season, as powerful fashion houses like Givenchy and Kenzo goes all out with this trend. I love how prints like this can make you stand out from the rest especially when you enter a room and you're wearing a head turning floral or animal print. (pak! winner!!). To show my love for floral prints, I bought 8 floral printed shirts last week and right now my wardrobe looks like a garden of floral printed shirts (hehehehe).

To make this look  I paired my black Floral printed shirt with my all time favorite Topman trousers and paired it with my deadly claw like metal ring that I bought from my classmate kaya dapat mag ingat ang mga magnanakaw at holdaper pag suot ko to! hahaha.

PS: I finally have my own space here in the world wide web! bought my own domain.

Florals and War

Probably this is the event where fashionistas and bloggers always look forward to here in the Philippines. This is the fourth installment of Bloggers United and to be honest this is my first time to attend this event coz  I was extremely busy with school works and interships (fyi I did not pursue anymore my Internship with a particular company because I want to focus more on my studies and also some issues that I think I should keep to myself) that's why I couldn't attend the past Bloggers United installments. I was with my blogger friend/classmate Mike Miguel (this is also his first time hehe) and we surely had fun seeing all my blogger friends which I haven't seen for like 3 months or more especially Angel (hehe it was nice bumping in to you that day, aww I miss her so much) and the bloggers trying to charm their customers in selling their fashion used clothes.

GAAH!! super affordable accessories!! in pesos!!

Lookbook spotlight: Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Pre-Fall 2013 Collection

Last Wednesday I decided to meet with my high school friends that I haven't seen for like almost 8 months and we surely missed each other "a lot!". Since they knew that I'm working as a fashion intern last semester and I don't want to disappoint my friends by looking like a drab to them so I wore this cool shirt with leather details and I paired it with my DIY acid washed ombre jeans.

Three things that I'm into right now, first animal print shirts second studs and leathers and third floral prints. This just proves that my wardrobe needs to change its direction and just experiment with my style, so from now on I will not be afraid to get out of my comfort zone in dressing and I will always push my boundaries through fashion.

Into The Wild

Do you own a pair of jeans that you bought a year or maybe 2 years ago and you don't want to wear it again because "It's so BOOOOORING and so so Last year", well instead of throwing it away why don't you makeover it (haha fyi I'm a fan of watching makeover shows) by this simple and easy DIY project that will surely make you love your boooring old jeans.
So I had this pair of jeans that I bought last last year, this jeans became one of my on the go look (paired it with a tank top or t-shirt and I'm good to go). 


Things you'll need:
Old pair of Jeans or if you want you can buy a cheap pair of jeans. 
Bleach
plastic Basin
Gloves
Spray bottle
Scrub
white paint for paint splatter effect (optional)


The acid washing itself is very easy and you can do it in many ways. This is how I Acid washed my jeans with an ombre effect at the bottom of it.

DIY: Acid Washed Ombre Jeans



The staple for a woman's wardrobe is the little black dress.  While we might think about staples for a woman's wardrobe, many don't think about staples for a man's wardrobe.  However, there are a few basics that every man should have in his wardrobe so he is prepared for any occasion.  He may not wear each of these items frequently, but chances are he will wear them at least a few times a year and will wear many of them more frequently.  Consider the following:

Your Visual Wish List reminder 

Sometimes we need a friend or maybe post it notes (the one you stick on your wall) to remind us what we need to do  it could be tasks, school works, meeting, events you need to attend and goals or should I say your "wish list". I remember when I was in 5th grade I used to have this notebook filled with wishlists mostly material things I want to have at that time and I always set a deadline in every item that I want/need to have. Introducing an application that can help make your wishes come true and keep you on track with this visual wish list reminder.

Wore this on the first day of Second Semester. 
Decided to just be Casual and Laid back on the first day of class, no eye catching prints, leather boots, studded eye wear and real tight rocker skinny jeans It's just "Laid back", you know sometimes my head/brain hurts just thinking what to wear especially when there's an upcoming event that I have to attend ugggggh!! total head ache and by confessing this to you I instantly feel like a dumb blonde (no offense to my blonde readers, you are all beautiful and smart at the same time, It's just how the society sees you). I love how versatile this vest that I bought from Topman!, it can be worn as casual look just pair it with a T-shirt, tank top or just like what I did and also it can be worn to formal events.
