TGIF


Top: WAGW 
Necklace: Sol Accessories
Clogs: Gift from my brother
Bracelets: Spikes from Mauve | Braids from Extreme Finds Davao
RECESSIONISTA FINDS:
Shorts: American Eagle (SALE. 450 php approx. $10)
Native Bag: Bazaar Find (350 php approx. $8)

So here I go again pounding my head on the table just to come up with a badass outfit-related title for this post.  I don't mean the head-banging though. Don't get me wrong. But seriously titles are getting harder and harder every  single time! Especially when you've been blogging for more than a year already and almost all words in the dictionary were used up! Well not really. hehe
I know this is such an abused word / acronym but TGIF sounds so good now.. Let me share 3 reasons why.

1. Friday's my last class for the week. 
2. 4-day weekend coming up. 
Next class is on Tuesday and its like this for the entire term.
3. My dad's here to visit, and my brother's home.
4. ....so it means I'm PIGGING OUT FOR THE NEXT 2 STRAIGHT DAYS!!
I just thought the CAPS and !!! were necessary. Please understand. You know how much I love food.  

In addition to the TGIF rage, I thought what I wore to school leaned pretty much on such saying, even my dog-tired face. It's as if it's waiting for some miracle to happen....dun dun dun dun....then comes FRIIIDAY! I don't think I'm making any sense now. Pardon. Let me cut it here and wish you all a happy weekend! haha :)

SKYSCRAPERS & AWKWARD FACES

Fringe dress: WAGW
Denim Jacket: Guess (had this since I was a kid!)
Bag: F&X 
Bracelets: Mauve
Necklace: Mauve
Recessionista Find: Heels from Charles & Keith. Got it for 799 from 2000+.

Been a while since I did an outfit post! My apologies. I have been too busy and school's to blame. Class started this week and this 
my dear readers is what I wore on our first day! Thanks Ash for taking my outfit shot.
 It really pays to have a classmate/friend who's as patient as her! :) 
As for what I was wearing, I wanted something to tone down the dressy-ness of the heels so I wore
 a denim jacket over the dress instead of going for blazers. I just thought it would go more with
 the fringe and  silver accessories.  Also, did you notice something new above? I actually added a new section to the list of outfit details!
 I'm considering of labeling items which I thrifted or got on sale as  "Recessionsita Find/s"  and actually
 including it in every outfit post! What do you think?
Anyway, I hope you are all having a great night! :)

W/E BTS

Photoshoots and videoshoots, what comes into your minds? Outputs that are eye-pleasing such as polished clips and flawless shots of people are just a few to mention.  But don't you sometimes wonder what actually goes behind the lens? Well, I happen to love it more when I see BTS shots/clips of shoots. I think it's just way to fun having to see the actual and how it transformed into something ideal. Don't you agree?

Well speaking of behind-the-scenes, remember the videozine we did for WearEveryday.ph? Photos above show what happened before the shoot.

x Hair and make-up! The best part. Check out the braids!
x Shoes, accessories, clothes we used for the shoot. All from Forever21. 
x Vern and I contemplating on which accessories to use!
x Lissa, Vern & I taking a break 
x and photo/videographers too!
x Isa and Rejan--the minds behind W/E!

Just in case you haven't seen the videozine yet, you can check it out at WearEveryday.ph! :) 
Have a great day guys! :)

TODAY

So today was spent again with none other than my dear friend, Ashlee. A simple "I-havent-seen-you-for-months-
we-should-catch-up-over-dinner" thing was extended to 2 days of shopping, cooking and oh well,
chatting. Non-stop talking and sharing!  A day with her never gets boring, seriously! 
Anyway, I have been too lazy to bring my SLR around so I resorted to the best-est way to take photos--after SLRs and Digi Cams--my iPhone!
So guys, here's another instagram post summarizing this day! Enjoy! :)

x Shoe shopping at SM. I was helping Ash pick her very first platforms.
x Undecided which color to get.  Ended up with pink, btw
x Went to the supermarket to buy tonight's dinner.
x Brussel sprouts which I've been wanting to try. I only see it on cooking shows. 
x Preparing dinner.
x ...And after 15 mins, voila! 
x Dinner made by yours truly :)

Hope you're all having a great night! :)

GIVEAWAY WINNER

Congratulations Alyssa Cabel for winning the TWR x Romwe giveaway! :) 

GAP BE BRIGHTER CHALLENGE

Tees are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you could find in your closet. Dress it up by wearing a fancy skirt and heels, 
or dress it down by sporting a pair of jeans and wedges. 
I together with other bloggers had a challenge. We chose a tee from Gap's Now Tees collection 
and wore it based on our personality--mine happened to be none other than boho. 

Above shows how I styled the tee. Instead of traditionally wearing it as a top, I decided to give it a twist by using it as a dress. 
I suggest you go to StyleBible's site to read more about the interview. There I explained how I came up with the look! 
Hope you like it! :)

SUNDAY WITH ASH

As interior design students, we hardly get sleep! :(
Summer break is over so I'm back in beautiful Manila! School's starting tomorrow but before it does,
Ash and I did our normal day routine--we haven't done it for 2 months since she went back to Fiji while I headed to Davao--where we go around High Street, do groceries, cook and eat in the balcony,
all of which we do A LOT before! :) 
So here's a summary of our day:
 x Walking (while goofing around) at High Street
x Spotting fresh shrimps in the supermarket
x Treating ourselves with some Takoyaki 
x Preparing for dinner
x Ash sending you kisses! lol
x Sauteed shrimps with garlic, onion and butter
x Our home-made salad 
x View from the balcony. We're actually eating now. haha

Have a great night ahead guys! :)
