Reasons To Hit The Gym

Went out for grocery shopping last weekend wearing this. I needed something light and easy since the heat here in Cebu is just unbearable.

I could have easily gone to the beach to cool off but my body's just not ready for the required dress code, or lack thereof.
Ok! So I'm fat right now. Fatter than I usually am. Urgh! I'm just so frustrated. It also doesn't help that I have been too lazy to get my arse to the gym. I know, serves me right. *sigh*

This way oversized bag was a birthday gift I got for myself. LOL! Selfish much.
Since it is another convertible bag (hand, shoulder and sling bag), I plan to use it for my upcoming trip to Australia.
And yes, that's another good reason for me to hit the gym asap. So help me God!

On me: What A girl Wants lace cami, Dunhill men's shirt, Ayala bottoms, Promod bib necklace, Figlia ballet flats, Mags oversized bag

Ballerina Ambition

Let me get this out of the way first...
No, I have never dreamed of becoming a ballerina. Never did it cross my mind and I don't have any plans to start on it in the near forseeable future.
There! I just really needed to clear that up.

So why am I wearing a tutu? Just because it's fun. I'm even thinking of going snorkeling wearing a pink one. Wouldn't that just be fun?! But I have to buy an underwater cam for that first.
I promise to post it here.

I almost gave my dad a heart attack when I wore this tutu without the leggings. Poor dad. But I love him to death. Peace dad!

On me: Ppl R Ppl shirt, Terranova tutu skirt, SM leggings & headband, Figlia ballet flats, Mango quilted bag

Major Bling Bling

I was feelin' like a cross between some ghetto girl and a 70's disco ball in this top. Lol.
But I had major fun wearing it.

That was until I realized that my sequins were shooting off twinkle-like reflections on anything it could catch.

Talk about attention-grabbing wherever I go. It was pretty much equivalent to wearing a pink flashing neon sign.

But what the heck...
C'est la vie!

Wore this while satisfying my sushi craving. Lately, I've noticed myself turning Japanese.

On me: thrifted sequined top, Urban Outfitters blazer, Mango skinnys, Chelsea footwear, random rings & bracelets

Soda Vs. Coffee

I used to be a coffee addict a few years back.
That was before I stayed in the hospital for four days due to a stomach complication caused by endless cups of coffee I have been drinking.
So I guess that was the end of my coffee days.

These days though, there are still times when I get no sleep and I'm supposed to get to work with little energy.
My new pick-me-up energizer? Soda! At least a liter of it.
Thanks to this sugar-loaded carbonated drink, I can still do a straight 10-hour shift without dropping dead in the middle of it.

Anyway, it's summer here in the Philippines and I could kill for a glass of ice-cold water right now.

Hot? Go figure!

On me: dress from Ayala, random woven belt, Ppl R Ppl gladiators, F21 floppy hat

Dear John

Celebrated my birthday last week and did a Ladies Night - minus the male stripper. (Though it would have been uber fun if we had one. Lol.) What we had overflowing though were loads of drinks: sangria, frozen margarita & vodka lemon drops. The margaritas were a hit!

And no sir, we're not alcoholics, sir no sir! Hahaha! What a fun night we had!

What I wore...

On another note, I can't wait to watch "Dear John". Another tearjerker movie from one of Nicholas Sparks' books. And I'm already in love with their OST - Set the Fire to the Third Bar by Snow Patrol and Martha Wainwright.

On me: Giordano denim jacket, bandage dress from SM Dept. Store, footwear from People Are People, random owl necklace

Starting Summer Early

Here's a head start to summer...

My boss treated the entire team to this waterpark here in Cebu, Imperial Palace. I have been in the beach for two weekends in a row now and I'm simply loving my tan. It also wouldn't hurt if I had the perfect bikini bod too. But I'm not complaining. Ha!

I tried my darnest to look for a floppy straw hat but can't seem to find one. It would have gone well with my summer look. I found one on F21. Now all I need to worry is how to have it shipped here.

The water slides that I was too chicken to ride. Boo for me!
Though, their international buffet was too perfect for indulgence.

Beach person that I am, I simply cannot wait for summer to officially come!
Please come very soon, pwetty pweeeaasee....!!!

Special mention: Thanks to mah friend Prinkay for "playing" around with my photos.

On me: Tropikal Relik maxi dress, Speed Control swimwear (underneath), Ann Taylor sandals

Another Weekend Escapade

My family and I decided to drive for hours last early November and went to Santander - the northern peak-most of Cebu. We stayed at an uncle's resort there then took a barge and crossed to a nearby island, Dumaguete.

We walked for hours, ate their famous Sans Rival, had candlelight dinner by the beach, and fed fishes while swimming. Too bad we didn't get any photos. But it was still a blast!

Mom and Dad

This is really not a fashion-related post. Just wanted to share with y'all what I have been doing during my long hiatus.

Enjoy your day!

Quick Island Getaway

I was at this Pandanon Island last October for a double birthday celebration of my friends.

The place had this long strip of sandbar which was just absolutely amazing!
Unfortunately, I failed to take loads of photos since I was still depressed at that time because of all the weight that I gained.
I know, vain much. But I just couldn't help it. I was so pathetic!

Breathtaking sunrise. Me and my friends rode off back home with this as our view. Weren't we just lucky?!!!

On me: white shorts and striped off-shoulder top from Ayala, Speed Control string bikini (underneath), random wayfarers

Old Victorian Lady

So I found more old photos of mine during my hiatus.

This time, I'm featuring a very few photos from Glam Night at work last September.
I decided to ditch the usual gown and dress and wore this ruffled top that my sis found at a thrift shop.

The top's details and materials are just beautiful!!!

I just realized that I look like I had an overdose of some tanning lotion in these photos. Ha!

On me: thrifted ruffles top, thrifted pencil skirt

Back on Valentines Day

Hello lovies!!!!

So I've been gone for a long time, and I would have never thought that I'd be back posting here again. But I was surfing the web one day and found myself checking fashion blogs and my own blog once more. Much to my surprise, I found 14 new comments on my last post here. And it's been what... seven freaking months!!!

I missed you all. So here I am again.
Though I can't promise that I'll have new posts everyday, like I used to, but I'll try my hand again in keeping this blog updated.

Here are some of my lost photos, taken during my aunt's wedding last August. I know, I know... so long time ago.

Partying too hard? Not! I was such a poser. Ha!

On me: thrifted top, harem pants from SM Dept. Store, quilted clutch still from SM, Figlia strappy sandals, random necklace and bracelets
