I love dressing up as the girly girl that I am for school. When I saw this blue green dress in Forever 21, I knew I had to have it. Even though the top part is actually sheer and it didn't come with any bandeau, I knew I could find something in my closet that would go with it and that it would still be perfect for school. It matched well with my pink shoes and accessories and one my favorite bags.

Also wore this to a meeting with my cousin Gabby and her girlfriend, Cristina Decena. They interviewed me for a school project in De La Salle University about our shoe line, Sophisticat Shoes. It feels good to get interviewed 'cause I feel like I get to inspire some people to do all the things they want at the same time.

African Fire

I'm loving this Safari-themed mullet dress that I got over the summer at a shop in Greenhills Theatre Mall. It suits my red hair perfectly.

The photos are taken in between classes at the Ateneo Law School. They are taken by my friend, Hannah Ang. Thank God for friends, who never get tired of my vanity!

Dress - Greenhills Theatre Mall; Shoes - Betsey Johnson; Belt - some bazaar; Necklace and Bangles - from my shopping spree with Nikko.

Sorry if I look kind of angry. The sun was really hard to avoid.

I can't believe I just discovered this area for outfit photos!

And yes, we just had to take a photo of the hair again. :)

Yesterday was my third time in Corregidor. (First was in 2005 with my family, and the second was in 2010 with Nikko -- shall post photos from these trips soon) Nonetheless, I still had a great time exploring the historical tadpole-shaped island. Corregidor day tours is one of the most fun, organized and interesting day trips I have ever experienced. You will certainly get great value for your money. I highly recommend it to families, couples and friends, who want to see extraordinary views and have a great learning experience about Philippine history and World War II.

Here are some photos:

Sorry for the vain photos, I just love my ombre hair!

Dad had this photo requested 'cause this is where Douglas McArthur left for Australia

Our tramvia

Inside the Malinta Tunnel. The Lights and Shounds Show at the Malinta Tunnel was a great one-of-a-kind experience. One will learn a lot from it and being inside the Malinta Tunnel itself during the show is just cool.

So for some reason, I like this photo.

Today, I went to Corregidor with my parents and my Uncle Louie, a balikbayan. I had a great time even when it's already my third time there. The place is just amazing and rich in stories.

It was a good opportunity to take photos, considering the view. And since I still can't get over my red ombre hair, I'm posting a photo now. Photos of the actual trip will come in later.

After weeks of planning and waiting for my graduation pictorial to be over, I finally did it! Say hello to my red ombre hair! <3

Black and Gold

I really like sparkly stuff because it can make anything simple look unique. For example, black and gold, when combined is always very elegant. My outfit the other day consisted of a black and gold blouse that my grandma got for me in Forever 21, and a plain black tulip skirt.

Lucky Dress

I've always thought of this dress as unlucky when it comes to my academic life. Whenever I wear this dress, I get called for recitation and I don't really do well. Haha. Yes, I am superstitious so I haven't worn this dress to school in a while, even though it's one of my favorites (love the print and the cut!).

Well, today, the dress proved me wrong. I didn't get called and it was overall a happy day.

Dress - Forever 21 (picked out by my stylish mom); Shoes - Rajo! for Parisian, Necklace - Forever 21

I love this necklace from Forever 21! It matches my dress very well.

If there's one word I want my style to be associated with, it's "funky". I like experimenting with different colors, prints, sexy cuts and layers. However, there are times when I'm too lazy to dress up the way I want to and just put on that loose dress or shirt that doesn't really define me. Of course, there is also the conservative, sophisticated side of me, which likes dainty pink skirts, little black dresses, and preppy outfits.

These photos were taken in Bon Chon, Regency in Katipunan Avenue, one Friday after my law class. The look exemplifies the funky side of me.

It was really cold so I had to layer.


My Steve Maddens! I got a GC for my birthday from my Tito Louie and I got myself this pair! <3

Girly, Demure, Classic, Hip

I wore this outfit to our last class/block pictorial in law school. It consists of a pink halter top, a skirt I've had since college, and a nice chained belt that looks very classic. I wanted a girly, demure, classic but at the same time, hip image for the class picture.

Blouse - Greenhills; Skirt - Babo / Nava; Shoes - Naturalizer; Bag - Nine West

I love how the skirt looks leathery.

Uncle Cheffy

So, my mom's birthday was spent at home because of the endless rain and flood that Metro Manila and other parts of the Philippines suffered from. All the restaurants and malls were closed for the day so we just celebrated by being together in our condo. We were so thankful that our loved ones were safe and we prayed for our countrymen's safety. It's sad that the country had to go through something like Ondoy again.

The next day, we had lunch at Uncle Cheffy in Ali Mall, which is just across our building. If you want all meat goodness without having to spend a lot, I say you try this Brick Oven Cuisine.

Happy Birthday, Mommy!

Shopping is one of my most favorite things to do. I'm always ready to explore the entire store (and even mall) just to find what I love and not just what I like (because if I consider everything I like, I might end up buying 95% of the merchandise). And so whenever I go shopping, I make sure that I'm in my most comfortable clothes and shoes, even though it means that I'd have to deviate a little bit from my usual style.

This is an example of how my shopping get-up looks:

Top - Hong Kong; Jeans - Levi's; Shoes - Moby Red; Bag - Nine West

Last month, there was an art exhibit at the Powerplant Mall called, "Visions". What makes it different from the other exhibits is the fact that there was actually live doodling going on and you can see the artists in action.

Of course, this is one of my favorites, as I can very much relate to the girl in the illustration. Haha.

We went to see the exhibit after my thesis defense last month!

And yes, another one that I like. I'm such a girl.
