In a few hours, we’re about to welcome a new year. 2013 has been very good to me but I hope 2014 will be so much better. I’ve been blogging for 2 years now and I’ve always been so grateful for the opportunities I had because of this. One of the highlights of my year is being included in the 100 faces of SM Youth. Until now, I always get kilig whenever I see that mural in SM Naga. Hihi~
When I started blogging, I never thought that I’d be doing this for a long time. But since then, this blog has always been my therapy and stress reliever. I find it fulfilling whenever I voice out my thoughts on fashion or even my day-to-day experiences. Whenever I have an ample amount of time to go online, I always read my very old posts and I’m always like “Why was my pose like that?” or “Wtf. I was talking nonsense”. LOL I always end up making fun of myself. I know you do too! :p
I thank my readers who give me heartwarming messages, ask me questions and fashion advices. It makes me feel cherished and trusted that they value whatever it is I’m going to tell them. They’re one of the reasons why in every post, I am inspired to write.
I thank those who give me criticisms because through them, I become aware of the things that I need to improve. Given that this blog is a public platform, random criticisms are really included in the package. I just take these things as a signal to recommit to my work and be more focused. I am grateful to these people because I am able to see my mistakes and change it if there’s any. ♥
I thank A-fash for helping me build my confidence. Because of them, I can pose without getting conscious with a lot of people around. ☺ Because of them, I discovered that I can really be versatile. I’ve always thought that girly and edgy were the only styles suited to me. But because of our weekly themes, I was able to pull off different kinds of outfit that I never thought I can wear. Most importantly, I thank these guys for the gift of friendship. They’re one of the reasons why my college life was memorable. ♥
I thank my friends who are very patient in taking my photos. ☺
I thank my parents for my allowance. Haha!! Without you, I will not be able to buy the things I’m wearing here. I also thank those online shops who gave me freebies. ☺
So here, a compilation of my looks for the whole year! What’s your favorite? Mine’s many to mention. LOL! (biased)
Let’s all pray that 2014 will be our year! Have a happy new year and be safe! ♥
In a day and a few hours, I’m no longer a teen. And since I was doing some online shopping, I decided to post my birthday wishlist here. My goal is to buy these things one by one every payday. Mehe~ I’m no longer expecting a lot from other people because you know, as you grow older, you receive fewer gifts during occasions like Christmas and birthdays. Agree or not? But then, if someone will give me these, damn. You’ll make me the happiest girl on my special day. ☺
First up on my list are stylish pencil skirts. When I started working, it’s like I had an immediate style shift. I realized that I don’t have that much clothes appropriate for working. I have several skirts but they’re too short. And yes, I’m highlighting the ‘stylish’ there. Lol! I always say that wearing corporate clothes shouldn’t equal to dull and boring. It shouldn’t be too striking of course. It should be stylish but at the same time, classy.
Next up are blazers. Lots of them!! It’s a good thing that I’m not into shirts that much because almost all of my clothes are blouses and dresses. Hence, apt for work. The only problem is that, almost all of them are sleeveless. *sigh*
Finally, a want that’s not for working. Hee~ I want all of these!! The colors are love! ♥
On my to-buy-list next payday. A new gold watch. ☺
Okay, back to my for-working-wants. Lol if someone can give me a bag exactly like this white one, !?*”!!?*@ I can’t express how happy I’ll be!! This white bag turns my eyes into heart shapes (Ha, ha).
Bags with studs are always a love. I’ll never get over them.
Gold flats or gold strappy sandals. Whatever it is as long as it’s gold. Lol I tend to gravitate on gold things these past few months. Shoes, clothes, bags or accessories. You name it and I love it when it’s gold. ☺
Shoes with gold metal tip. Another style i’ll never get over with until I have them in all colors. Lol!
It doesn’t end there! It’s not all material things of course. Regularization of employment is on top of it. And lastly, a boyfriend. Hahaha! alright alright, I’m kidding. ☺
So that’s it. My birthday wishlist. Happy birthday to me! I’m hoping that the year 2014 will be in my favor. *crossing my fingers*
Love love! xx
Hellowee!! Here are the items I got recently. Some of these were gifts and some were bought when I was in Manila. ☺
Cutieee Hello Kitty watch I bought from Greenhills.
My favorite cropped tops to date! Bought these when I attended the Bloggers United 6. Forgot the name of the shop though. :(
Matchy matchy top and bottom from Greenhills. I love the leather details of this skirt!
Oxblood red skater skirt from Greenhills. Bought this one cause it came in my fave color. ☺
Asymmetrical skirt I bought from Lissa Kahayon during the BU6
Received my first birthday gift from my best friend, Lec. Heee~
Very useful for work. ☺
Mossimo top ; Pants from a bazaar in Manila
Human jeans and Tonic strappy sandals from Kryz Uy during BU6
Silver strappy sandals from a bazaar in Manila
Apt 9 and Rampage heels (gift)
4 days more and I’m no longer a teen! Mehe ~ How are you doing?
Messages are loved! ☺
Merry Christmas everyone!!! ☺ And since it’s that time of the year again, here’s an outfit you can wear for get togethers you’ll attend this holiday. You can wear this later for the midnight mass, then remove the blazer after and viola! You’re ready to party! ☺
My personal reasons for choosing this one are the color and of course, style. No other color symbolizes merriment than Red so I always prefer wearing this during Christmas. I have so many things to be grateful about especially now that I’m employed. I felt very fulfilled as well that I was able to give gifts to my family out of my own hard work. It’s worth every cent even though I’m now broke. Lol
With regards to the style, I preferred going dainty in this tweed blazer with pearl details. I also chose this dress that’s casual but still sophisticated.

Thrifted tweed blazer
Maybe some of you are familiar with this photo. And maybe, some of you were fooled too (Ha, ha!). My fellow fashionista friend Sam posted this on Facebook telling everybody that this house was my graduation gift. A lot of people were texting me, sending me tweets and messages on Facebook about it. Seriously guys? Even my closest friends were fooled (Ha, ha!). Too bad my parents won’t let me go yet so yeah, I’m still with my family right now. ☺☺
So that’s it! Hope I was able to give you some outfit ideas! And just so you know, I’m still accepting gifts! Mehe ~ Happy holidays guys! ♥

I’m looking at my previous post and it has been 3 weeks. I guess this will be one of the many changes I’ll be having right now that I’m working already. I’ll try blogging every weekend though. Doing this is a very good therapy for me. I swear, working in a bank is very stressful.
Anyways, this one’s on my drafts since forever. *sigggggh* Looking at this makes me miss my A-fash family so much. :( My Wednesdays will never be the same again. *cries*
This outfit signifies my sadness. I’m in all gray ‘cause I feel gloomy like that. LOL! I’m kidding. Our theme here’s Fifty Shades of Grey so that explains our get ups. See how colors can be a huge contributory factor in your ensembles? If I were wearing bright ones here, the whole aura will change as well as the mood I’ll bring to the people who’ll see me.
That’s why nothing beats my love for wearing colorful ones. It makes me feel good and brings me positive vibes. This, on the other hand, I rarely wear. I always go for black and white whenever I prefer neutral ones.
