Spectacular Spectacles

The new Giordano specs

Since I owned my Ermenegildo Zegna Specs from 2010, I haven't upgraded my glasses. My vision expectedly got worse. Long hours I spent in my laptop is a predominant culprit. Kim, my sister also has a refraction error and needs to get her own glasses so I went with her one day. We got our pair of glasses from Ideal Vision, an optical center. The successor to my EZ specs is a pair of Giordano spectacles that suited me well according to my sister and I think this looks better on me than the previous.

Xtina's Lotus

Before any haters can cast a curse upon her album, I just want to say that this album says that she is here to stay whether you die of hate. Haha. The cuts on the album are Billboard Hot 100 ready. Like Red Hot Kinda Love, which has an upbeat vibe and personally, I am LSS stricken by this song. My personal favourite! There are barely just album fillers in there. Let There Be Love can be at par with Kesha's and Riri's hits. This was penned and produced by Max Martin and Shellback. Light Up The Sky is also one of my favourites in her album which gave her a chance not to overdo her vocals and still want to make you go up and down. Collaborations with her The Voice co-judges Cee-Lo Green and Blake Shelton moreover added highlight to Lotus.

Let’s give her some time to solidify her presence, this time in the music scene. In my point of view, she doesn't need to prove herself anymore because she has, long time ago and Lotus is just an I-am-here reminder to her loyal fans and to the younger audience who haven't witnessed her golden days. Although her album debuted only at no. 7 in the Billboard 200 charts in the US which is by far the lowest sales in her career, let’s support her music even more.

Let there be love!    Love love love!

Swellmayde Aimee!

By accident I happened to stumble upon Swellmayde, a fashion blog by Aimee. I think by far this is the most inspiring blog I have read. Via her DIY projects, it instantly captured and stirred my interest. Her DIY stuffs are so good that I wanted to give it my own spin. Really inspiring. This blog really got my creative juices oozing! Not only does the blog feature fashion but also posts and DIY projects on home improvement. Aimee has also collaborated with a lot of magazines, style brands and whatnots. I have envisioned myself of doing the same. I would love to get more inspired and find interesting ideas from Swellmayde!

Meet the style savvy Aimee.

Visit her blog at Swellmayde.

I love this DIY project. It looks complicated but is really doable.

Closeted Style Savvy

[caption id="attachment_1308" align="aligncenter" width="870"] A print on print header and profile picture.[/caption]

The idea of selling clothes online started from my sister. She started by creating an instagram account for her store. So I thought of making my own and because I have heaps of stuff in my closet that I don't use anymore. This is a perfect way to gain extra income and to find new owners to my loved stuffs.

I have loads of really good garments at a very competitive price. Items still in crisp and good condition. Some are still brand new and with tags. Hoping to see you there.

Please visit and add my store on Facebook at Closeted Style Savvy!

Here are some of the samples from my store.

Cardigan Love

For almost a month I haven't purchased any from thrift store that I visited. A reason is that nothing has caught my keen eye. But yesterday, I discovered this very basic but chic Bershka Cardigan from Tejay's Thrift Store, the first go-to thrift store that I know. Since they texted me yesterday about their new arrivals for garments and bags, I went with my sister.

Of course there were a lot of stuffs to go through so I don't know were to start. Haha. But yes I have to start with the bags. Nah, Nothing in the bags section. Nothing from the pants and shirts section. But when I went to the girl's sweatshirts area, I saw this cardigan and pulled it out. Immediately, I looked into the tag and it was Bershka. Bershka MAN! And then trying to contain my glee, I asked the sales personnel about the price and I instantly bought it. The cardigan is still in mint condition and feels so soft on the skin.

Love love love!

Total: 150 Pesos only!!! Yes! Great bargain find it is.

Aim High, Fly High

Now about the look that I wore for the reunion. I really just want to wear a sleeveless top because it really is hot but I went to just layering it with a military shirt to cover up the skin. Haha. The thrifted Lee Jeans stretch pants is super tight on me but the Folded and Hung Military shirt kind of  balanced the whole look. I decided to pair this with my newly acquired Oxygen Gladiators.

The look is retro inspired from the Ermenegildo Zegna Aviator Specs to the military vibe. So for the accessorising part, I went with my also newly obtained sexy vintage Casio DB-360 gold watch and a gold chained bracelet. I purchased the Gold Casio watch from Alboe Fashion, an online store at a very competitive price. Gold is starting to go mainstream again.

Hype this look on my lookbook account. Click this link! :)

What can you say about this ensemble?

Let me know what you guys think. Comment!

The Psalms of the Romans

After almost a decade post High School, we emerged what we are now. From Doctors to soon-to-be Lawyer to almost all sorts of professionals, this is the future that we have been aiming back then. But I am not that keen on saying that to myself because this is not where I dreamt to be just yet. Soon enough I can be on that place.

Kriska, the golden-voiced siren of our class spearheaded the reunion of our Psalms and Romans class. We were expecting around 50 people but of course some are already living their own lives somewhere so we can just expect for less. The date and venue got finalized. De Paolo’s Restaurant was the unanimous choice. It was our favourite go-to place in High School where they serve the ever popular potato croquette!

I am not certain of the people who will attend because I am too preoccupied with a lot of stuffs. On November 2, the day of the reunion, I still went with Mads, Cente, Audrey and Roi to have lunch. We did heaps of stuff tirelessly. Mads is a batch mate of mine and then too so we decided go together at the reunion dinner.

Of course, we arrived late. Like what’s new? Haha. As we entered the restaurant, from afar I can only count them with my hands, a bit nervous to see them again. I haven’t got used to social events like these. Mads and I roamed around to kiss and hug and say our hellos to everyone. I am elated to see them but now at a different view, in a more matured way. I was a bit surprised that they were clamoring about my blogging stint. Felt good that they knew about that and thank you Facebook!

During dinner, we rekindled our high school madness and updated each other with career and whatnot. It was nostalgia all over as we run down the crazy stuffs we did back then. Knowing friends achieve what they have right now was truly inspiring. Thereafter, we decided to have coffee at Coffee en Tree, a local coffee shop. Lots of snapshots and chats befell. The place was cozy and encouraged us to stay longer and closely get to exchange personal tales and gossip!

 With the curvaceous Hazel haha.

 With bestie pretty Madsy. :)

The night was concluded with kiss and hugs as we all parted. It’s great to be with our good old friends. Until next time friends!

To our sponsors who generously picked up the tab, thank you Doc Jean, Architect Carla and Carlo. You guys are awesome!! I want to get sponsored as well. Haha.

This is your blogger friend,

Kenny :)

Just Another Day On Earth

The night before Halloween I celebrated my birthday with a pretty simple party with my closest best friends. Actually, this was an instantaneous idea we had with my Mom while we were dining at McDonald’s the day before my birthday. We were supposed to just go out with my family to celebrate my day.

Mads came super early and I am not even home yet! I thought that she will eat drop and run haha just like what she did last year. Right my dear? Good enough she was early because there was a power outage in their area. We had a long chat about her hang ups and issues. Haha. Don’t worry Mads I won’t drop the bomb here. Audrey and Cente were my other guests but Audrey couldn’t make it because she chose my birthday of all the days that she can schedule her tooth extraction! But that’s fine. She did make it up to that and I shall post about that part soon.

Cente came and we started loading food in our tummies. Mom was toxic serving us. Thank you Mom! The three of us stayed all night opening up stories to talk about and secrets to unveil. They did crazy things. Haha. It was definitely fun. You all made me happy.

A really simple but happy day for me.

Mom and I

 With my friends Cente and Mads

We went out the day after with Audrey.

Thank you Guys! Love you. :)
