Galileo Enoteca

Like I've said in my previous posts, I, together with my family, am a sucker for Italian cuisine. There's just too many flavors going on in every dish. And so for my birthday, we decided to eat in an Italian restaurant called Galileo Enoteca. The one we went to is in Eastwood City. It just opened in January and is a franchise of the Galileo Enoteca in Mandaluyong City, which has been hailed as one of the most romantic restaurants in the metro. 

We had some cold cuts, pizza, pasta, gelato cake, and wine. Truly, Italian food never disappoints!

So, today is my birthday and I am now 25 years old! I am so thankful to the Lord for everything that He has given me the last 25 years and I'm excited for whatever the next years will give me (I'm sure my following years will be great or even greater!).

I celebrated with my law school friends, my family and Nikko today. I went to school for a one-hour class and I was surprised by my friends and classmates with a shoe-shaped birthday card (which made me cry) and gifts. When I came home, Nikko was there waiting for me with my family and I opened his presents right away (loved them!). Then, my family went to Galileo Enoteca in Eastwood to have dinner.

I wore my Style Staple Camille two-tone dress, which I ordered from my high school batchmate and friend Arvie. I ordered some dresses just a few days before and told her I would be wearing one of them today for my birthday and she immediately shipped out the items. I got them yesterday and I'm so thankful to her 'cause they got to me on time. :) Call me shallow but for me, a good birthday is not complete without a nice outfit. Haha.   

Happy birthday to me!

These were waiting for me at my desk when I arrived in school today. I loved the Stefani Heelless inspired birthday card and I loved the messages inside! :)

It was truly another special birthday. Best birthday ever! I know I say this every year but somewhat, my birthday just keeps getting even better and better every year.

Thank you to everyone who made me feel so loved! :)

Happy Birthday, Maan Dear!

Today is the birthday of one of my dearest friends, Maan! Last night, she treated us to dinner at Shakey's, Makati Avenue. I will forever be thankful to the Lord for our close friendship, which started two years ago, during our Corporation Law and Civil Procedure days. We talk about anything and everything from fashion to relationships.
Maan and Janna.

JD = Janna's Defense

So yesterday, I defended my thesis for law school. It was the first time I went through something like that and it really was an unforgettable experience. The defense lasted for an hour and there were three panelists asking me questions and commenting on my paper. It was very challenging and difficult and I'm really glad it's all over now. :)

I was just so happy when I heard from the Thesis Center that I had already been graded for my work. They actually liked my written output. Yay!

My girlfriends accompanied me to the thesis defense area. They were so supportive and I love them so much!

When it was over, I cried. I felt mixed emotions. My friends were still there, waiting for me. Also, Nikko showed up with a bouquet of flowers. My mom, who went to the chapel met up with us, too and treated us to dinner. I am just so blessed to have loving people around me.

Here are some photos:

Taken before my defense. Thank you, friends!

And after! Suit - made-to-order; Shoes - Sophisticat Shoes

I  cried!

With my girls. I love you! <3

And one more! Thank you, Loves!

Thank you so much, Nik! <3

I went to a friend's birthday party last night. I was too lazy to take photos so bear with me. I wore my striped sleeveless dress, Sophisticat Shoes' Stefani Heelless in Black, and my favorite Prada bag.

ANC's Shoptalk Feature

Today, I went to ABS-CBN Studio 6 for a taping. I got a call yesterday from a representative of ABS-CBN News Channel's (ANC) lifestyle show called Shoptalk. They invited me to talk about Sophisticat Shoes and I immediately said yes. (Who would say no to an opportunity like that?)

I'm Shoe in Love (Part 2) Bazaar

Sophisticat Shoes joined the I'm Shoe in Love bazaar, which happened at the NBC Tent, The Fort from June 30 to July 1, 2012. It was our first bazaar and I'm so glad it turned out fun and successful. I met a lot of different people, who were interested in our designs.

Here are some photos from Day 2:
