AS REAL AS IT GETS


 Lately I have been relentlessly chasing deadlines--going from one drawing to the other just to keep up with all the school work.
 I feel so restless all I coud think about is slowing down and recharging my batteries. So yesterday I took the golden chance to relax, and by relax I mean staying in watching dvds, reading a good book and pigging out. 


One of the things I missed about home is how my mom would always make sure merienda's always served every afternoon. And knowing what my favorite Filipino snack is, she makes palabok at least 3x a week. Yes that's how I love it! But since I moved to Manila, I hardly even have it. I mean there are a lot in the market but I just can't seem to find the one that reminds me so much of how my mom makes it, until one time I was doing the groceries and found this tasty looking 'instant palabok'. Inspected it closer and realized it was Lucky Me! Special, the same brand that makes the famous instant pancit canton! So yeah, I got about a dozen packs. Takaw, I know! haha

I'm very picky with palabok and I tell you this tastes nothing like 'instant' all.
 I even told my mom to try it and she said it tasted like the authentic one. 
 To make the long story short, I always had it as my merienda since then, ust like how it was at home.

So with everything I needed just around the corner, I spent the afternoon locked up in my room.  Yesterday was one of those days when I just wanted to be alone with my thoughts and be surrounded with things that make me happy--interior design book, journal, movies and of course, my favorite food. :)


Hope everyone's doing well! Happy afternoon everyone! :)

xx,
TWR

RELIVING COLLEGE

Shirt & Bag: Team Manila
Jacket: Next Jeans
Skirt: Terranova
Shoes: Keds
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviators

Do you ever have those times when you wish you could go back to your old university and relive college once again? I do. A lot actually. Thinking about it makes me miss quite a number of things; The busy hallways every dismissal, the loud chitchats of different cliques in the cafeteria, the long line in the elevators and most of all, the students strutting themselves in their laid-back "I-don't-give-a-damn-I'm-just-doing-my-thing" kind of style. Dressing carefree--honestly that's the thing I missed the most. And during those days when I feel like sporting something 'student-esque' , I always turn to statement tops, canvas bags and Keds. I mean there's nothing more 'collegey' than that! We may have different Universities/Schools but I believe we all could agree that a tee, canvas bag & sneakers are every student's fashion staple piece! And  to those who disagree, just leave a note below. Don't forget your phone number. Haha kidding!

And speaking of school, I have two long tests tomorrow. Might have to pull another all-nighter again! So
I better get started before it's too late.
I hope you like the look! Have a great night ahead guys! :)

xx,
TWR

THE CASUAL GYPSY


Shawl & Bangles: Accessorize
Sandals: Janylin
Bag: Charles & Keith
Necklace: SM Accessories

After a long long while I finally got the chance to go through different fashion inspirations on Tumblr a few days ago. Most of you know  this but for those who don't, I adore Miley Cyrus' rock-boho style so much to the point where I have my very own 'Miley' album (in my laptop) with nothing but her looks. But after being led to one Tumblr blog to another, I happened to land on  one that's all about Vanessa Hudgens' gypsy ensembles. Inspired and very much carried away, I rummaged through the pile of old stuff in my closet and looked for something gypsy which I can walk around in without people thinking I'm some kind of curtain lost in the street. I wouldn't wanna be stared at. That's the last thing I want.
 I thought  instead of wearing paisleys and feather prints, I'd go for plains and just let the accessories make the whole look. The necklace and bangles I believe did the job, but I must say it is the shawl that capped off the entire outfit. It just made ever single item blend in to one whole piece, don't you think? 
Anyway, I hope you like it! It's Sunday and I wish your rest day's been going really well :)

TWR

USUAL WITH A SPUNK

Blazer: Bangood
Top: Forever21
Shorts: One Teaspoon
Bag: Charles & Keith
Studded Belt & Earrings: SM Accessories
Baroque-inspired Heels: Janylin

You can never go wrong with denim shorts paired heels and blazer on days when you want to be in something between overdressed and underdressed. Lately I have been posting  a lot of laid-back ensembles, and I mean a whole lot. It's just that being in something fancy isn't really my thing and casual  looks always seem more appealing , but there are times when I push myself outside the box to experiment.
And today's one of those days.
But to be honest, I first thought of going with the usual--boots and leather jacket--but these baroque-inspired heels got my attention so I tried it on and it saw how it actually went well with the top and earrings, so just stuck to it. This is honestly just like any other denim ensemble I always come up with but the only difference is this time I added spunk with the help of bright colors and a few blings.
Hope you like it! :)

TWR

Paid a visit to GAP today and found this  denim button down and amazing boots which I thought would be perfect to last me hours in the concert! Of course, I will be adding more to the look to complete the whole coachella-esque vibe! I just couldn't wait to show you so I took a selfie in the fitting room and upload it right away! haha

SELFIE

Dress: Forever21
Boho Bag: Gift from my Aunt
Gladiator Sandals: Charles & Keith
Blue Necklace: SM Accessories

No need for a fancy outdoor shoot to show today's look when you're left with nobody but yourself to take your outfit shots; a few 'selfies' will (should) suffice.
I just got home from class and before changing to my pajamas (we can never be to old for them) I wanted to show you what I wore to school. My #OOTD to put it in simpler terms. Emphasis on the hashtag haha And in order to do so, I had to use whatever resources I have at home and with a mirror and digital camera just sitting around the corner, it wasn't at all difficult.
My SLR's broken so please bear with the photos. Nonetheless, I hope you like the look! It's very laid-back and casual.. just how I always want it :)

xx,
TWR

ARMY-STICE

Boots: Jeffrey Campbell
Camo Jacket: Next Jeans
Bag & Bracelets: SM Accessories
Tank: Mango


Been staring at my laptop for about 10 minutes already just trying to figure out what decent title to give this post. Phoenix's Armistice (one of my favorite songs) is playing on iTunes and coincidentally I'm sporting a camouflage jacket which then gave me the idea to entitle the look'Army-stice'. I know its lame but if you think about it, it's actually not that bad. I mean, I'm usually poor at these things but coming up with that word is already something for me. haha Alright enough.

Going to spend Sunday with my cousins and I'm currently waiting for them to arrive. We planned on walking around the neighborhood and check out shops in High Street so I thought of giving my boots another try since they've been siting in my closet for 5mos already and i never really got to wear them more than once.

Anyway, I gotta rush. Need to clean the room before the doorbell rings! Hope you're having a great day though :)


xx,
TWR
