Denim Top: Tommy Hilfiger (thrifted) | Tutu Skirt: YRYS | Shoes: Capital Vice | Bracelet: Landmark | Floral Wreath: gift, from Ryan

There is no doubt that summer is already here. Whenever I go outside, it always seems like I am wandering on a never ending sauna disguised as a street. I just thought that these long overdue post is very timely one to put in le blog. Floral wreath! Hello!

On another note, I must say that the release of VSCO’s new presets was such a good timing. These were edited using A4, which I can already regard as my favorite filter. It’s really amazing to know how people can come up with new applications that are easy to use and perfect for their target market (in this case, those artsy-minded/photograph crazy) folks.

On Test Shots and New Things

Shoes: S&H | Bag: Kelley (Ryan’s ) | Romper: from a bazaar | Skirt | thrifted

I am very much ecstatic to finally own a new camera which is now resting peacefully at the palm of my hands: a Fujifilm X20. Oh my. I never thought that I will be able to purchase one that soon (few months after investing on an Iphone 5s). Perhaps, let me just do a separate post for the Fuji love.

Yesterday, my sister and I took test shots within the neighborhood. I was itching to have a moment at a wall decorated with oh so lovely bougainvilleas. Finally, we were able to steal a few seconds to do it. Mission accomplished! In spite of the heat, rusty “posing skills”, roughly unperfected cam settings and nosy rural teens (Sorry not sorry, they were quite a pain to deal with.), it was a pretty good start! I hope to do better quality/artsy posts similar to these next time. So excited.

I would rather be tagged as underrated than overrated any day. It implies that you are an unpolished gem, waiting to be discovered.

Glitteratti + A Valentine’s Sale

image

Last weekend, my boyfriend and I had a little shoot at a nearby sports complex. It was a good thing that the place was quite deserted. It made us feel comfortable to take these photos and for me to get away with being awkward in front of the cam at times. 

image

It’s been a while since I used this blouse. Hurhur.It’s just, I don’t know.. Too dressy? Look those sequins, man. SEQUINS. O.O Maybe I’ ll just use it again for another formal occasion. This was bought at SM Department Store- at 50% off. That was such a steal so yeah, I just had to take it home.

image

The perfect pair ankle strap heels are so hard to find. *rolls eyes* Whenever I scouted for one, those that I see were either: with straps too thin, having a heel height that is too high for me to walk on, unflattering, or out of stock. Huhuhu. 

I guess  seeing this baby at Capital Vice is such a stroke of luck! Honestly, I chanced upon this already maybe a month or two ago, but was hesitant to buy. I must be saving up for something else that time or weighed if it was just an impulse buy or not. Fast forward to today, that exact same pair is still there. I love how the heel is low and  the cut is just right. Yay! maybe it was meant to be. An issue that I have though is the material: Suede. 

I hate hate hate suede. It’s such a b**** to clean. It doesn’t help that I am always gravitating to shoes styles in this kind of material. -.- Oh well, that’s life.

On a different note, Valentine’s day is just around the corner! Gasp! Have you already  planned your surprise or gift to that special someone? It’s about high time to be mushy mushy and all. Hihihi.

image

Since this is a momentous occasion for you (Yes, you.) lovebirds. I think it is but an obligation to look our best. Girl, Persunmall would be a great help with regards to that, specially if you are into online shopping. Wait, there’s more. They are holding a Valentine Sale for selected items up to 50% off. High five!

For those who are currently single , don’t fret.  This may have been said 1000x times but for sure, this is true: True love waits. It will come when you least expect it. Cheer up! Buy gorgeous clothes and be fabulous! Who knows, maybe “he” may spot you one of this days. At least look your best. ;)                               

Moving forward, here are some of my top picks for your reference:

Daamn, I wish I could get this for myself. Unfortunately, I am living in a tropical country. Hahaha! I love how deep/ox blood red-ish this trench coat is. <3 Hmm, maybe I should call this Valentine’s red instead? Naah, I’m blabbing too much.  But seriously, if you live in a constantly cold city, go grab ‘em.

image

This is a no-brainer choice because it’s black and white. Hello? It’s goes well with anything! Also, I am a sucker for being OC with my stuff. The compartment in front makes reaching for small things such as lipstick, pen et. al. hassle free . I think I have to partner this with the red Valentine trenchcoat. 

image

There’s only one thing that came to my mind when I saw this:

image

SAILOR MOON

image

Bomber jacket!!!!! I am having a hard time in looking for one within my area. Well, I saw one last December. It was actually pretty affordable but the prints are not that pretty enough. :( I think this item is perfect with all those floral prints and the color. 

Hmm, that’s about it. I hope I was able to help you a bit there. Happy shopping! Enjoy the rest of the week and your V-day. I hope he surprises you big time.   :b

Pre-Midnight Iphone Monologues

image

I cannot stress enough how happy I am to finally do a breakthrough and muster up the courage to splurge on the “right things” at my early twenties. Woot woot.

Maybe this isn’t a biggie for trufax rich kids out there (You, lucky people). However, for an average yuppie who works her butt off 9-5/Monday-Friday, I guess I deserve a pat in the back for finally being able to invest on something with my hard-earned cash. A top of mind priority is my Iphone 5S. Yup. Go big or go home. 

WHY IT’S TIME TO UPGRADE TO AN IPHONE:

1.  YOURS TRULY IS ADDICTED TO THE INTERNET.- I need something to entertain me. All the time. I am guilty of leeching wifi at malls/coffee shops whenever there is a chance before. Hahaha! What the heck. Shoutout to Glorietta for being my free wifi mecca.

image

Also, my dorm is bordering to boring at times. Whenever I don’t have any plans with friends/workmates/boyfriend to hang out, I’d rather curl up and check Twitter or watch Youtube on my bed than stare into nothingness.

2. ALL MY PREVIOUS PHONES WERE VERY OUTDATED. - Yep, those Nokia phones and all. I *tried* lowering my costs by purchasing a second hand Blackberry. Unfortunately, it had an untimely death in less than a year! Goddamnit. I was just thankful that my boyfriend lent me his old phone that’s why I still had a connection to the world.

image

3. IN DIRE NEED OF A GOOD CAMERA- So, why didn’t I just get an SLR or something? Naah. I’m kind of leaning towards a mirrorless cam but I will purchase one once I have funds already. Huhuhu.  Anyways, I’m digressing..

image

(Me trying Iphoneography) 

Being a fan of anything multi-functional, I want my phone to be a very convenient companion in keeping up with primarily Lookbook and blog posts. Also, being able to snap random photos and moments with other people is a close second. I am trying my best to be able to update my portals as often as I have done before (circa 2011, pre-working girl days). 

image

4. OMG. GAMES, MAN. - God, it sucked so bad when I can only play games like Candy Crush or Zombie Tsunami on someone else’s phone before. :( (Honestly though, I don’t play so much anymore now)

image

5. INSTAGRAM!!!!! - To the creator of this app/SNS, you da bomb. <3

image

6. HELP. I AM DISORGNIZED.- Oh god. I am so SO bad in remembering birthdays. If I can sync that Facebook friends’ detail in my gadget or get an app that does so, life will become easier. Also, I need to track my to-do lists and reminders more efficiently.

image

7. I AM A SLAVE OF CONSUMERISM.- Enough said. Aren’t we all? 

Oops, yup, so far that’s about it. Notice all those GIFs? I guess I have been reading a ton of Buzzfeed articles lately. Oh well. :|  Hahaha.

Now, what will my next big purchase be? Well, one thing is for sure- it’s going to take some time but it will definitely be worth it.
