The weather’s too hot for an all black outfit, you say? Well, I thought about that too but I’m just really loving my new top:) It’s from Grab-a-tee, a brand I just knew about that you can find in Robinsons Department Stores. It was amazing that after I mentioned to my mom that I needed a basic black top (and I don’t know why I just realized that!), I found their display near the counter! They have lots of basic tees in different colors, and in very sleek and sexy styles (very in!). Not to mention very affordable! Uh-may-zing!
 I wore shorts and sheer to counter my color choice. Accessorized with Gold and Silver for a Day to Night simple outfit. I went to Ayala with this outfit, and took of my cap for a party in Penthouse later that night.
Grab-a-tee Top, Pasalubong Shorts, Katrina Flats, United Colors of Benetton Bag, Korea Cap
My solution to the summer heat, Sheer! Just not too over-the-top, be decent, still:)

Color Me Blue

Wore this on my last wash day in school (or last before finals because I couldn't dress up on finals week--too stressed out, HAHA). Also went to a food tasting for my Nephew and Bro-in-law's birthday celebration at Choi City, BTC.
South Shores Top and Necklace, Bobson Jeans, DBC Flats, Anne Klein Watch

Never take someone for granted.
Fight if it's worth fighting for.
Compromise and lower your pride.
--words I've been hearing a lot lately. Every relationship has it's problems, but it's up to you how you deal with it, I know some people who's having trouble holding on or some letting go right now and I just want to say to them, hang on tight. Things will get better:D

A shout out to the person who never ceases to annoy me, make me laugh, make me angry, cry, smile, and just happy (most of the time^^). We're not perfect, but I know you'll do everything to get close to perfection for me<3 Hi Best Friend.

"Little high, little low!"

A little word play for my title, sound familiar? It's from Stuart Little! Ah, what a childhood movie--"Stuart Little: Little high, little low! Mrs. Little: [from a distance] Little hey, little hoe" 

Due to the stress of finals week, I've been missing my childhood and high school years. Third year finals is just so tiring! Our projects are usually assigned by group, maybe to prepare us for Fourth year  because every project plate will be by group then--but its so hard having so many different groups for each project. I was almost never home and I had barely any sleep! But now it's over and it's officially summer!


For  my outfit, I wore this hi-low skirt I wore in the Opening of Comfit Cebu, and went for a less formal look. A little grungy (?) but not so successful because of the floral prints--HAHA!

I just noticed that our roses are blooming!! So preeeetty!:)
I haven't planned my summer yet, just bits and pieces of it, but I'm excited to be free from school!--well not totally, I'm gonna be taking courses for summer, but that's just 9 units, and they're all minors! I am gonna make this summer count! :D

What are your summer plans?:)

All Set for Summer?

Online shopping is not something new to our generation, it makes shopping more fun and easy. And since summer is on its way, I went “Online Window Shopping” and arranged a few items for you guys. Some must haves for Summer 2013!
Bikini (P9,850-net-a-porter.com), Dress ($83.00), Hat ($38.00), Bag ($98.00), Sunglasses ($29.00), Flats ($86.00), Belt ($22.00)
Maxi Skirt ($33.24), Top ($16.55), Necklace ($12.99), Bracelet ($13.99), Hat ($33.99), Sunglasses ($14.99), Belt ($14.99), Slippers (Havaianas Freedom in Aqua)
Here are some summer Must Haves:
1. Sunglasses! These is a must have—I suggest white because surely, pops of color will be in your wardrobe!
2. That’s no. two— Color.Color.Color. Summer is the perfect excuse to wear lots of colors without being judged (or in the our case—not that much).
3. Flip Flops. What better brand than Havaianas? Check out their 2013 Collection here.
4. Sheer. This is not new to the must haves list because sheer is trending especially because of our hot and humid air, but I still state it because the need has grown! It’s hot hot hot!! Also perfect as a Cover-up!
5. Swim Suit. Time to look for that swimwear you’re surely gonna overuse! ^^
6. SPF. For the scorching summer heat! Foundation, suntan lotions, etc!!
7. Hats. Because sometimes, sunglasses and suntan lotions are not enough!
8. A Camera to capture and post all those memories. :D
9. Oversized Bag. All those essentials won’t fit in your tiny purse! Be sure to get a Cameleon/Neutral Bag to match all your outfits!
10. A huge SMILE because its summer!!! And because a smile is the best accessory you’ll have:)

1 more test and 2 reports and I’m all set for summer!! Can’t believe my third year is almost done! The hell year in Architecture—whew!

Are you set for summer?:)

Color Block

Wore this ensemble last Chinese New Year. Posted this on instagram with a thought: Why does Pink represent a baby girl and Blue a baby boy? hahaha. Anyways, a simple outfit away from the cliche Red:)
South Shores Dress, Gifted Bolero, J - Styling and Attach├ęs Bag, Solemate Shoes, Guess Watch
We ate in the newly opened Kuya J. I knew Kuya J personally because I used to sell my homemadepastillas to him when I was in grade school. He doesn’t own it anymore, but the new management—Grand Convention, i believe— kept the name:)
