I was super excited when Ate Kat contacted me again for a photoshoot. If you’ve been following my Tumblr, you can say that the photos that she took of me looked pretty cool. It’s also not everyday that I get to have my pictures taken “professionally”, thus, I agreed to her invite without hesitation.
Our shoot took place at Globe Asiatique where she currently lives. It happened late afternoon so the “magic hour” will be captured. Aside from that, we went to the roof deck as it was the best location for it.
Lookie! With the “magic hour” that I’ve mentioned, this is what I’m talking about. The sun’s golden afternoon glare gave the photos a warm feel. I have seen it from various top bloggers and luckily, I was able to try it as well.
Here are some headshots with my trying-to-look fierce-face. I hope I pulled off being fashionably snobbish well! Heehee. :)
My favorite whole body shot is this one. Agree? I kind of lacked practice in posing in front of the cam that’s why I’m pretty happy with this one. It’s been a while since I used these SM Parisian shoes. Unfortunately, it’s already damaged and weathered (scratched leather and all that) so this might be the last time that I’ll use it for Lookbook’s sake.
Evening’s already starting to set in so we had to hurry in wrapping up the shoot. Thank god for Photoshop and le photographer’s skills. The picture didn’t look as dark as expected!
I used this blouse before during our company Christmas party last 2012. In an instant, I fell in love with this piece the time I saw it on the racks. I am currently on a “gold and shimmers phase” and this is perfect. Surprise! Its price was slashed by 50% too. What a steal. :D
Now, let’s go to the shots overlooking Manila from the top. The bokeh looked so good! I just hoped I made a more upbeat facial expression here but it’s okay.
Going back to my blouse, I also loved the sheerness of the bell sleeves that added more drama to it. Aside from that, the cuffs (I hope it’s the right term) has a thick band of sequins too so further accessorizing is not necessary anymore.
That’s it for now. I have two more outfit shots from this photo session so watch out for that! I think that this is a good look entry start for 2013. My blog goal is to post more quality entries. :)))

Happy new year’s eve! I feel that this is a good last post for 2012. These pictures are so enchanting/powerful/fierce. Hands down to the photographer, Emman Montalvan. My personal favorites are the 1st and 2nd sets. Of course, I chose these because of Martine Cajucom (le personal It girl).

I’m not very sold with the idea of getting Iphone 5 due to minimal improvements. However, I’m still torn between the 4s and Samsung S3. There are 2 main reasons why I want to upgrade: 1. It’s an all-purpose camera|social networking|music gadget and 2. It’s about time that I get to invest on something big for myself.
Since it’s time to change my old habits, health is one of my priorities. For the past months, I have gained few pounds which I am really happy about (on the 90+ pound mark. Yay! Thanks babe.). To have a toned and more fit body, I must exercise more (through jogging, jump ropes etc.)and purchasing this is one good way to start.
*Anthology Lyon flats
When I saw these pair of flats at The Ramp, it was love at first sight! I have been looking for a great peep-toe flats for a very long time. I first saw these being worn by Anne Curtis on some outfit snapshots for her Preview Best Dressed spread. However, hers was from Nine West. I’m quite hesitant though because of the price which is around 3000 bucks.
*Urban Decay eye primer
Based on reviews, this is the best eye primer in the market so far. Good thing, I found out that it is available in Trinoma! If not this one, the next big contender is the one from Smashbox.
*In2It brow kit
I haven’t used up my Fanny Serrano brow kit so I can just purchase this one next time. I like it due to its compact size, nice color selection and not-so-hefty price tag. It’s essential for me to fix my eyebrow that’s why I want this to be the tandem of my MAC Browset.
By “miracle” of sorts, I discovered this atomizer through Kryz Uy’s blog (www.kryzuy.com). I have been looking for a small spray wherein it would be easy to put my perfume. I hate carrying around big, heavy bottles of perfume so it’s a necessity! Travalo is claimed as convenient to use, without spillage unlike ordinary atomizers! Check it out here: http://www.travalo.com/
*Hermes Un Jardin Sur De Nil Perfume
This perfume smells heavenly, I tell you! My officemate borrowed this from her mom and I fell in love the first time I took a whiff of it. It has the qualities that I am looking for in a scent- fresh, smells juicy and delicate. I don’t like strong perfumes. Hahaha.
So far, these are what I have in mind for now. I might have a round 2, but maybe, after I have purchased some of these stuff. Whee! I hope my bucketlist will materialize. I gotta start saving up now. :)
A few weeks back, my guy and I had a weekend trip to Tagaytay to relax and have our December getaway. :D
As I am not yet done editing the photos, I will provide a separate post for that instead. Let’s now go to my recent Lookbook post! These photos were taken using a Blackberry only, would you believe?
The walking-on-the-road-kind photo is really one of the fool-proof ways to make the composition look better, moreover, cooler. He was the one who suggested shooting at the dirt road and of course, I was game. Good thing, there were only few vehicles/people that passed by. :b
My eyes were looking quite tired during that day so I decided put on this Mango shades again. Also, I wanted to add an extra something to my look. the shoes that I was using here was from So! Fab. I love everything about it- the 3 tone color block, peep toe design, wooden heels and the price. Good buy indeed! However, the fabric that was used is velvet so it’s kind of hard to clean.
Usually, I use this long skirt as a dress. This time, I opted to wear it ala maxi high-waist version with a lace top and belt. My Bayo messenger bag says hello again. In all fairness, it’s the sturdiest of all the messenger bags that I’ve tried. However, I am still on the lookout for another one- something that is lighter and in a different design.
By the way, Christmas is just around the corner. Hopefully everyone will have a great holiday ahead. :)
Finally. After a few months, I was able to have a fun shoot again with ate Kat. I’ll post everything and the links soon! :)

Rainy afternoons make me want to come back to old snapshots.
October 2011 issue
Sorry followers! I know it’s been a while since I posted anything original in this blog. Hehehe. The past few weeks had been a mixture of extreme happenings, from frustrating, cry-fest, decision-making events to very amazing ones. To make up for my shortcoming (may ganung factor?), I would like to share some of my personal stuff via my friend/co-worker Raissa’s Iphone photos.
It was our boss’ birthday yesterday, so.. we got our kiddie party hats on. :D
Yey, I definitely gained weight! It’s hard to achieve that one, huh. *happy dance*
This was taken way way back. I just posted it because we kind of look tall here. Whoops, as you’ve noticed, I like wearing a lot of blacks specially in the office since it’s a versatile color. I’m trying to incorporate more bright hues in my corporate attires.
My boss looking at the gift that we gave him. Yes, surprisingly my boyf and I are the photobombs here that’s why I posted it. Hahahaha!
In relation with us and on a different note, I will be posting a new Lookbook post in a few days. Gosh, I so miss LB and editing photos!! These were taken during our much-awaited December trip in Tagaytay- our best escapade so far. The places we went to were sooo pretty. :3
Here are the teaser photos! I’m very excited to share this one. Fudge, I don’t have a header now as well. It’s about time to improve my blog design.
I’ll be back very very soon. :)
