hype Silent Superstition on Lookbook
Have you tried changing clothes inside a car? If yes, then you probably know how uncomfortable and slightly claustrophobia-inducing it is (or maybe it’s just me). My first time was during a shoot for an online store, the second time was during our Tagaytay shoot
and the third time happened before we shot the photos above. I only noticed the ugly bulge my top made after seeing the photos on my PC. I look like I have a layer of flab right smack in the middle of my tummy. It’s my fault, really… I didn’t double-check my outfit, I just stuffed the clothes inside my bag before I left the house that afternoon. So yes, lesson learned: always double-check!
The photos are taken by the creative, Louise Manuel (thank you so much for agreeing to do this with us). I’ve been planning a fun shoot with several Tumblr fashion bloggers since Christmas last year but it was hard for us to synchronize our schedules. Good thing, it finally pushed through last January 7 even though only a few were able to attend. It was really nice to meet some of the people behind the blogs I follow. :) I’ll post more photos from the shoot soon.
By the way… did you notice the “face” on my right knee? I hope it doesn’t start to talk *cue eerie The Twilight Zone music* ;_;

“You’re afraid of imagination. And even more afraid of dreams. Afraid of the responsibility that begins in dreams. But you have to sleep, and dreams are a part of sleep. When you’re awake you can suppress imagination. But you can’t suppress dreams.” - Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami

(CLOSED) Christmas Giveaway Part 3
Thank you girls (and some guys… probably for their girlfriends or sisters) for joining the first 2 parts of my Christmas giveaway. I already announced the winner of the 1st part on my Facebook page and the 2nd part
is still ongoing ‘til the 24th. Now I’m posting the 3rd and last part. :) Join now and get a chance to win these:
1 feather ear cuff, 1 pair of three tier earrings and 1 pair of feather earrings from Ma-artsy Shop
This outfit is a lucky charm. I placed runner up and won 3k worth of gift certificate from Accessorize Philippines with this entry
for their About the Bag contest. And the first one of my 5 looks to get 100+ hypes on Lookbook is, guess what, this look
. I’ve a confession to make though… I’ve only worn this outfit for the sake of shooting it.
So yes, please don’t shun me and stick an “outfit repeater” note on my back when you see me wear this again in events. And since I’m all about maximizing my resources (and luck) I joined another contest and if it isn’t too much to ask, can you please register here
then comment “Like!” on my entry here
. It’s my 19th birthday on Friday (I think that’s enough reason to help me win gorgeous shoes from Gold Dot hihihi). *bats eyelashes* :p
On a more serious note, if you’re a friend of mine on Facebook you’d notice how I’ve been sharing photos and such on how people can help the victims of typhoon Sendong. I hope I didn’t irk anyone… I just couldn’t help it, to think that there are people in need of help and I’m at home just being a fat ass all day, the least thing I can do is share them on my wall, but even that isn’t enough help.
Thankfully, Bloggers United
is holding a garage sale and 50% of the proceeds will aid SENDONG victims. I’ll be selling some stuff together with your other favorite fashion/beauty bloggers, brands and personalities. Please Drop by at Moonleaf Tea Shop Maginhawa street, Quezon City on Friday, 12/23/11, 10am-6pm
. Some of the stuff I’ll sell include leopard print bag and leggings, snake skin print leggings, sheer floral dress, 2way floral vest, books and accessories, all below 500php each. You can bring your donations too. See you there! :)

(CLOSED) Christmas Giveaway Part 2
This is the 2nd part of my 3 part Christmas giveaway. In solidarity with the victims of typhoon Sendong in some parts of Mindanao, we decided to revise the mechanics so we can promote a donation campaign.
You just have to follow the contest guidelines, one of them is sharing the campaign poster on your Facebook wall and you’ll get a chance to win these:
1 flag bag and 1 statement necklace from Cruella & Co!
Thank you so much to Camille Chan for sponsoring the prizes. :) You don’t have to donate to join this giveaway contest but any donation will be highly appreciated.
I slept at 6am (to finish a website project) and woke up at around 2pm today (not good! I should’ve drank coffee). I still have tons of plates to finish for our finals week, my reward for procrastinating. When will I stop believing that I can finish all the things (insert meme here) in just a short period of time? /wrist

The only reason why I’m still sane is my super loving boyfriend (mehganon?) he’s been really sweet and thoughtful lately that it makes me wonder if we have a healthy relationship. We’ve been together for more than 4 years but I think we’re still in the “honeymoon stage” (you know that stage where couples say I love you at least 10x a day, argues who hangs up the phone first and everything just feels shiny and new) kalerkey!!
Anyway, here’s a pretty laid back outfit that’s perfect for the bipolar weather. We actually shot these photos during an on and off drizzle. Moe and I would come back to the roofed area whenever it started pouring again and take photos when it stops.
Those gorgeous shoes (I really love the brocade detail and structured heel) are unbelievably comfortable. You wouldn’t even notice you’re already falling; they are that light. The taupe and black long sleeve romper is another ukay-ukay (thrift store) find. As for the lovely accessories, I’d like to thank Mika of Maris Unique Pieces and Jessica of The Bling Project for giving me these early presents. :)
