Topshop corset/ WAGW skirt/ Ice Watch/Accessorize sunnies
Hello blogosphere! I’m baaaaaaaack!
Its been way too long since my last post and I can list a hundred reasons as to why I decided to go on a long hiatus but I’d rather not bore you. Let’s just say, (aside from the rest I needed from my eyelid surgery..) things got a little too busy for me to handle. It also made a perfect excuse to rest from all the blog posting last summer!
Anywaaay, these photos were taken last July at the weekend of my birthday. I decided to invite a few friends over while my family and I stayed overnight in one of my favorite places in the world (or actually just Cebu.. haha!) – Shangri-la Mactan Resort. I wanted to wear something hassle-free and light thus the ensemble. It was a no brainer going for the blue electric pleated skirt since the color was already in my printed top. To make a look more put together, I always see to it that I’m sticking to the same color palette just so everything’s coordinated. I could’ve paired it off with white shorts but decided blue was more striking. Let me know your thoughts on this look! : )
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
I did quite a lot of shopping in last trip to Bangkok. When people said their clothes were cheap, they meant CHEAAAAP!! I can’t imagine buying these at the same price in the Philippines. I got this top in red because I realize I needed more red tops for special occasions. You know how the Chinese are! So when my mom’s birthday came, I found reason to wear it (despite the heat…). I especially love my shoes! Mostly because I like the texture and they’re pointy which kinda gives off this sophisticated vibe. I didn’t want to add any more accessories because I thought my huuuge statement ring was enough. : ) What ya think?
This is most probably the last post I’ll be doing for the next month and a half. Counting the days I can put contact lenses and make-up on! For more updates follow me in twitter.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

Forever21 bangle/ From Divisoria ringSteve Madden wedgesSuper casual look on a busy summer weekday. Here I am again wearing leggings! haha! You guys know how I used to dislike them but when paired with sky high wedges like these, you can’t go wrong! I wanted to go for a very laid back look but still chic and sophisticated. Little gold accessories here and there would always do the trick. Thank you so much to Christianne and Iris of Sugar Kissed for the necklace! I absolutely looove their accessories esp. because they’re all handmade (with love!) by the owners. We actually got to work with them for our third collection, BY IMPRINT and they’ve been so kind as to collaborate with us.Forever21 top/Guess? polo/Giordano leggingsSugar Kissed necklace
So about the title?…well, the reason I haven’t been posting a lot lately is because I just got an eyelid surgery. They said you can’t call it a surgery since they only did a few sutures but what the hell. haha! I will be having yet another long hiatus from my blog because first of all, I have to allow it to heal. I can’t wear my contacts or any eye make-up either so I hope you guys understand! : ) Please don’t judge me or anything I absolutely think girls with monolids are just as beautiful but after two years, I’ve gotten used to myself with double eyelids so I decided to have it on permanently. I will be posting a few more other backlog outfit posts in the next few days though…
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
I was going to wear this outfit without the shorts but because I forgot to bring a belt to clinch my waist, I looked pregnant. haha! So, I made do with what I had and wore shorts instead. I really don’t know how this outfit came to be but I wish I wore low cut boots or a pair of heels . Unfortunately, I couldn’t find laced up low cut boots in Bangkok! : ( And since it was more of a vacation for me than a fashion show, I didn’t mind… till now! haha! Like I said before, I was never a fan of pants/leggings so this is me trying to be versatile.
Before I end this post, I’d really like for you guys to check out this new blog called The Style Saviour. The chic girls behind this, Flaminia and Martina, have been so kind as to feature my blog and shop in their website! : )
Thank you again girls!
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
I’m no photog but here’s a couple of pics I’d like to share from my trip to Bangkok. :) Enjoy!
GRABEH! I looove PAL! I mean people usually hate airplane food but to me, it’s the best part of the flight! hehe! End it with this heavenly piece of theeng and it only spells perfection. haha! They actually have Munchkins too but I thought this was funny. :>On our first day, we went to Siam Paragon. The mall was packed with people! Although we didn’t do much shopping, I was beyond amused at how everyone was so chic and all dressed up. I’ve been to a couple of Asian countries but I find that the people in Bangkok are most fashionable. Ever find yourself stand out in a crowd always feeling overdressed? Well, not in Bangkok!
And believe it or not, I spotted 5 to 10 people who’s hair was as perfect as this! How do they do that?!? They took being ‘effortlessly chic’ to the next level! The following day we went to Dream World. I’ve blogged about what I wore here. Unlike any other amusement park, they have the most interesting statues!
I like to show off sometimes. HAHA!Cute kid trying to feed the elephant!Same kid riding the elephant! haha!Very convincing eh?
This was actually a sign that pointed where the toilet was. haha!I particularly loved the love garden. I <3 my Cheetos. I’ve never touched real snow before so being inside this huge dome-like building full of it was a dream come true! haha! If only I wore gloves and a pair of jeans…
My feeees is so frozen in this picture hahahaha! Thank you Daddy for insisting I stand among the sunflowers! haha! How cool is it that they have miniature statues of the 7 wonders of the world??At night, we took the dinner cruise at the Chaopraya River. It was breathtaking.The Royal Palace
The little feeling “princess” in me still has thing for countries that have royals. Disney can be very influential you know.
One of my very many favorite verses!
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
Whenever I travel, I don’t really like bringing a lot of accessories with me. For one, it adds to the weight of my baggage (the extra weight reserved for shopping! haha!) and they usually get in the way of things. Bloggers make it seem real easy wearing all those piled up accessories but sometimes I just wanna forget about blogging and be more laid back and fuss free. Which explains why most of my current looks don’t involve a lot of accessories.
Call It Springs shoes
P.S. I wore this to a day of shopping in Bangkok, so of course I didn’t wear these sky high heels throughout the day! : )

For our third day in Bangkok, we went to Safari world. Its almost like Singapore’s Night Safari only 10x bigger! You can’t imagine how many animals they have or how ginormous the park was! Usually parks have at at least 5 to maybe 7 tigers/lions but they have more than 15! Not kidding! I counted! teehee! I’ll be blogging more about the place in my next post. : )
I was already dressed up in this outfit on the second day but my mom insisted I wear the look when we’re going to the safari! Very safari appropriate to you? haha! Me mom thinkss! Don’t let the sheer robe fool you! The weather that day was crazy. It was insanely hot and then it would suddenly rain! Urgh. But how could you resist the yummy print on this robe? The things I do for fashion… <3
