Blood will always be thicker than water.

My Christmas Eve was spent with my Robles family at my Tito's house in Lucena City. I decided to wear this golden dress that I got from Glitterati (my high school friend's shop) and my Rajo shoes.

I love Gold and chains!

The best part of this dress is the back!

Merry Christmas!

Last Saturday was a very fun night for me 'cause I had two Christmas parties to attend. First was with my Jeyz Family (my boyfriend's high school classmates and their girls, who became my closest friends also) in Ascott and the second was with my law school blockmates in Urdaneta Village. I wore a blouse and a pair of shorts, which were gifts from my uncle and aunt, who visited Hong Kong. I had to wear a hat during my law school party because they were going for a beach theme. Good thing the hat that Nikko got me during our Taal Volcano trip matched my outfit.

Merry Christmas, Love! <3

Skeleton Heels

I have always been addicted to shoes. The Imelda in me wants to buy every pair of shoe in the world, while the Cinderella in me wants only unique ones, just like this pair I ordered last week from Pill. 

Roman Shoes by Pill

This was my school outfit last Tuesday. The dress used to be my Mom's when she was my age. It was a gift from her boyfriend then (my dad).

It was my first time to wear this knitted top that I've had in my closet for years. I've always thought it was too big for me but it was too pretty to be given away. This was in Trinoma with my mom and brother last week. I was as usual, shoe-hunting.

Also, I can't remember where I got this brown skirt from.

"Everyday is a fashion show and the world is my runway."

I had a photo shoot with talented photographer Geo Esguerra a few months back. I only got to post some of the photos on Facebook today.

Dress is from Mint; Shoes are made by the boyfriend.

I did my own hair and make-up here. Though the lips were retouched by Geo's sister, the fabulous Geolette Esguerra.

We did three lay-outs and I'm going to post the others soon. <3 Hope your weekend was interesting!

Just Got Lucky

I got this dress by accident. It was my brother's birthday present for my mom but unfortunately for her (and luckily for me), it wouldn't fit her. She asked me to try it on instead.

It was a bit loose so I decided to play with it by making one side off-shoulder and by putting on a belt. Fell in love with it afterwards.

Shoes from Figlia

I love pink because it looks girly and happy. :)

Thank you to R Lanete for taking my photos. I have such supportive friends! <3

Happy 26th Birthday to my Love!

Happy Birthday to the guy I'm willing to be placed under house arrest with, the guy I'd be willing to give nth chances, the guy I dedicate all the happy love songs to, the guy I remember upon watching romantic comedies and reading love stories, the guy I'm going to live happily after with.

The Salubong

I’m not much of a cook but for Nikko’s birthday, I wanted to make him feel special and so I tried to surprise him by making some Cajun themed dinner. I prepared and cooked everything by myself but with advice from my dad, mom and brother. I made Cajun Shrimps with Sausage Fried Rice and Banana Walnut Cheesecake for dessert. My brother helped me set up a dinner table at the poolside of our building. Thank God, I was successful!

Surprise birthday dinner for Love! <3

The Birthday

We left Manila at 10am, had lunch at Sonya’s Garden and then looked for a boat that would take us to Taal Volcano (Thanks to Tito Toke and Tita Connie for the advice!). The road to Talisay, Batangas, where the boats were was very steep and it took us a little more than 30 minutes to get there. The boat ride from Talisay to the island was another 25 minutes. When we got there, we decided to ride horses going up to see the crater ‘cause it was already late afternoon. The view up there was magnificent. I haven’t seen anything quite like it.
Last was dinner at Rose and Grace. We missed Bulalo so much that we left nothing but the bone.

The amazing view.
Every time it’s Nikko’s birthday, I feel like it’s my birthday also. Haha. Thanks again for today's adventure, Love! Happy Birthday! ♥

I got my semi-heelless shoes last Monday and I’ve been wearing it to school since then. They were designed by renowned fashion designer Rajo Laurel for SM’s shoe line, Parisian. I spent a lot of time thinking which design and color should I be getting first ‘cause everything there was just beautiful. My mom told me to get the red ones ‘cause I don’t have a lot of red shoes.

The shoes are really comfortable. I can wear them all day without my feet getting sore.

I heard the shoes are limited so better grab a pair now. I can't wait to buy my second pair.
