Oh, shopping. One of the perks of online shopping is that it's hassle free. Also, I thought that it also makes me like more restricted to splurge on stuffs. Yes, because I broke up with my credit card already. It was especially refreshing to see these amazing finds from ASOS, a worldwide free delivery online shop where all the nice goodies can be found.

Here are my top picks!

I have been hunting for this top in almost anywhere. But I am specifically interested with a button down that has a camo print on both sleeves but a plain color on the body. This one goes for 30 pounds.

Above: Oh, I am so loving this Lazy Oaf Eyes Baseball Top. I like this odd print. Even more when layered with this denim vest. Such an eye candy! Sells for £45.00.


Above: I love that this Tee has a summery vibe to it. The tinge ombre effect made an easy casual look. Just in time for the season. This 55DSL T-Shirt Tinge Ombre Print goes for £40.00.

Below is a Minimum Polka Dot Shirt. For the long haul, I've been looking for a perfect polka dot shirt that I won't look whacky. This one seems the perfect fit.

Lazy McGuire

Today, I helped my friend Cente and Tel with their wedding preparations. Though it's a rainy and gloomy Friday nothing stopped us from getting things done. But still a ton of things to be accomplished!

I felt lazy the whole day. Haha. The weather will speak for itself.

My outfit of the day. I love how random I managed to pull this look together. The weather kind of given me the permission to layer clothing and so I did. My Oxygen skinny jeans are so skimpy that it almost felt and looked like jeggings haha. Like "suman" in vernacular meaning rice cake covered in banana leaves. Haha. I know right. But I still loved it though. This is my typical signature look.

What I wore:

Top long sleeve shirt- thrifted

Tshirt from Team Manila

Jeans from Oxygen clothing

Sneakers from SM department store

Watch by Casio

Spiked bracelet from Divi

I Heart Lanvin

I was going through DIY projects over the internet when I came across They have this Lanvin inspired DIY which was pretty simple. Then, I started to think what do Lanvin sneakers look like and I scrolled down to see what they were like. And immediately, I was in love!

I love these Lanvin sneakers. Like who wouldn't? Dying right now.

Tickle Me This

This cute Elmo t-shirt was purchased at an ukay-ukay store for 180 pesos only. I haven't got a lot of fun tees like this so I gravitated to it instantly. The shirt is pure cotton and passed my standards regarding the feel of the fabric. It is comfortably soft! Perfect for summer.

Can't wait to wear this!

What Becomes of a Brokenhearted.

A lot of things we can not have a full control of. Things happen and then we react differently to it. My ensemble speaks loudly of that emotion of disgruntlement, melancholy, and utter rage. Not quite of rage but that is my interpretation of it. As the saying goes, this too shall pass. Well please, make it quick.

The color story here is based on the gradient colors of black to gray. From the black top layered with a gray cardigan to my lux wool shorts paired with black sneakers and gray socks. I got a little addicted with this color palette. It goes easily well with almost any color. No fuss with pairing.

Top from Folded & Hung

Cardigan from American Boulevard

Shorts were tailor made.

Sneakers and socks from SM Department Store

Bag from Ukay Ukay

Just Got Lucky Me

Baguio City is renowned for Ukay-Ukay also known as thrift shops. As far as I know, this is where it all began. The Mecca of thrift shopping, Baguio City. This is also a prime reason for my utter excitement. And to pay homage to the birthplace of Ukay-Ukay, I would dedicate this post to the adorable city.

Moving on, the most exciting part of our day was when we went to the night market. A whole side of the street is alloted to shoppers and sellers of almost all sorts of stuffs. When I saw the strip of ukay-ukays, I got so positively overwhelmed because I didn't know where to start! The first night was quite a snooze. I just managed to get a pair of shoes. Not so good shoes but okay shoes.

I was heading towards desparity during our last day because I thought I'm going home empty handed. As we are walking along the Session Road, one of my friends stopped by a store where we saw people scrambling through just-opened balikbayan boxes, loaded with heaps of clothes and whatnots. So we got curious and joined them. Haha.

I got my revenge on day 2, I amassed quite a load of stuffs. I did what I came there for.

I must say that these Lacoste shoes will give me a run for my money. This was originally priced at 1,500 pesos but we haggled with the seller and amazingly cut off 700 pesos. What a bargain! And still is in mint condition.

I got these shirts for 150 pesos each. Amazing! H&M. And I specifically love the gray Bossini shirt with epaulette detail. This leather handled hand bag also took my attention among the pile, a good buy as well.

We came to Baguio with thick pockets and headed home broke but we were utterly on cloud nine considering what we bought and the amount of money we shelved out to get them. Mission accomplished. Fun plus shopping!

I know Baguio loves me. Till we meet again!

Taking Chances

During my first day in Baguio City, my friends decided to have a photo shoot. It was such a cool, breezy, fun and crazy day. I felt like a star for a moment.

 The denim top is thrifted which I bought for 200 pesos. I decided to hype the top by installing metal studs to mimic the collar tips as shown from my previous DIY post, Let’s Get The Party Studded. It proved to be a great decision. This look was inspired by David Guison, a note-worthy fashion blogger. I like how the whole look came together. I must admit this is not within my comfort zone. The printed socks and shoes are a signature look from David Guison. The socks were from MEMO and the Oxford shoes are especially custom made. I am glad that I took the extra mile with this look. Thank you David G. for the style inspiration.

 Thank you to RM Photography for gladly capturing our craziness and allure. Haha. Kudos! You can seek his service thru RM Photography.

Don't forget to hype this look on

Lesson learned: If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.

Acid Wash Wednesday

Since I have lots of time to spare, it's time for some DIY!

I have this denim vest for more than a year now and just recently, I sent it over to the tailor for some alterations. It is looking sad and drab now so I thought of giving some life to it by bleaching or acid washing it. But before I poured myself into doing the project, I searched the web for some tips to go with me.

Warning: If you are planning to use your designer denim, you might want to rethink this because you might end up with a hot mess and hate yourself for sacrificing a precious gem in your closet. Instead, you can opt for your Mom's or Dad's old jeans or you can just buy at thrift stores.

Now let's start!

You will need:

1. Bleach

2. Spray Bottle

3. Denim Vest

4. Basin

What to do:

1. Lay your garment on a flat surface that you won't get worried of bleaching like your garage floor.

2. Wash the denim vest with running water. I used the hose to wash it.

3. Start splattering the bleach over the denim to your desire. You can use a spray bottle to get a localized spot bleach. Start with the front and then at the back. You can also put box boards to lay your garment to absorb the bleach and to prevent it from spreading to areas you don't want to be bleached.

4. Let the bleach set into the denim for a few minutes.

5. Once you got the faded look you aimed for, you can toss the denim into the basin and pour on cold water to halt further bleaching. Afterwards, you can wash it and put some fabric conditioner. Let it dry.

Voila! Your fresh and edgy denim vest!

A Is Near

They don't call the shots anymore. That is according to Mona Vanderwaal as she responds to Toby Cavanaugh. Looks like the real "A" is in the pilot seat now and I can feel that A's real identity will soon be unveiled before us. I have an inkling that Officer Wilden has a big connection with A's death. Make that a strong connection.

But the most perplexing question is, Is Allison DiLaurentis really dead? Or she's just covering with this whole disappearing act to get back to all those who wronged her and to also continue her queen bee reign over Rosewood High more so to the 4 pretty little girls. What will happen to Ezra and Aria? To Hanna and Emily? And to Spencer's desparity to find out who the real A is.

Questions are hanging amidst our heads but we will just have to wait until the next tormenting act of A and it's minions.

From Baguio with Love

Work does make one go nuts. Luckily, I got my sanity back. I was so stressed out and tired working from the last quarter of December until the end of January so I thought of having a cool off from work.

My friends and I went on a 3-day vacation in the City of Pines, Baguio City located north of the Philippines. It is a great place to unwind and to get inspired. I haven't been to Baguio in ages so having to go there again is quite a thrill plus a freezing weather(for me that is). Having said that, we kicked off our first day with a trip at the famous Burnham Park and we did a photo shoot. Of course, I did pack all my nice goodies for this. Haha. The climate was really a challenge. Some of my friends went with a sleeveless dress that did gave them quite a cold shoulder. Literally. Haha.

 A view from our place.

 Burnham Park

We had a not-so-cool incident at a local restaurant, Good Taste. Though it really lived up to its name. The waiter was passing by our table holding a tray full of glasses of iced tea, when he accidentally spilled everything on our table and unfortunately on us too. I don't know what's worse, to get spilled by boiling cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea in an 8 degree weather? Lol It caused me and my friends to feel a little maddened by the whole situation. Of course. But we decided to move on so as not to spoil the night.

We concluded the night with a shopping trip at the night market. All in all we headed home with glee. It really is more fun in the Philippines. Isn't it?

The pictures were just captured with my 5MP Blackberry Bold 9780 camera phone. They look so fine.
