If you notice, i’ve been wearing a lot of “skin showy” dresses nowadays and YES it’s because of the help of #ElordeMakati sessions i’ve been doing which makes me have more confident to wear dresses like these. I’ve been abusing it since christmas break is coming up which means piggy days are near :D I’m actually excited to have a guilt free ticket and eat EVERRRYTHING i want! hahaha *happydance* can you believe it’s 15 days more til Christmas?! :)
anyway this is what i’m currently wearing this tuesday and class is about to start so i’m just keeping this short! I’ll update this post as soon as i get home! hope you’re having a great week so far :)
I colored my hair a few months ago and it honestly made my hair a lot dryer and more damaged (as seen on the photo above) because i blowdry and iron my hair almost everyday. so i’ve been looking for a solution to fix that so i tried the Cynos prodcuts! :) Here’s the routine i’ve been doing for two weeks now:
FIRST: Apply drops of MOROCCO ARGAN OIL and spread from roots to ends and leave for about an hour before shampooing. Hair recovers its brilliance, shine and suppleness. This is the solution for dry and brittle hair like mine :) (plus you can you use it for your body and face too)
SECOND: Apply ARGAN OIL MOISTURE VITALITY SHAMPOO to wet hair and lather then rinse thoroughly. It gently cleanses hair without stripping of hair color and helps restore vitality and strengthen hair from harsh radicals.
THIRD: After rinsing off the shampoo, apply ARGAN OIL MOISTURE VITALITY CONDITIONER apply evenly on hair and leave for 2-3 minutes and rinse thoroughly. It nourishes, adds up shine and vitality on hair. It is gently safe on colored and chemically treated hair.
FOURTH: Spray ARGAN OIL SHINE & SHIELD SPRAY 8-12 away from hair and comb through. Films the hair’s cuticle with a veil-much coveted radiant shine. It protects against UV and other harmful chemicals and prevents hair static. Spray 8-12 away from hair and comb through.
Ta-da! Here’s a photo of my (blo dry) hair after using Cyno’s argan Oil Thairapy religously for two weeks :) Doesn’t it look smoother and shiner? :)

I’ve been using make up since I was 16 years old and with that, I’ve tried and tested alot of make up products from different brands over the years. I’ve been loyal to a couple and have discovered new ones recently :) So far, here’s what I use (I skip on eyeliner and eyebrow mascara on most days though!) and bring with me on a daily basis:
Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes: A new favorite! Got this a few weeks ago and I love that it makes me lashes seem longer when applied!
Khiel’s Midnight Eye Recovery: A quick fix for dark under circles and puffiness.
Nars Lipstick from The Beauty Junkie: This is the lipstick I’ve been overusing in the last few posts! I never knew Nars lipsticks were good till I got to try this one.
Jill Stuart eyeliner in black: I actually just started using eyeliner recently but I skip this one on most days.
Essence stays eyeliner: I swear by how long this liner really stays! This is what I use at night.
MAC Eyebrow Mascara in girl boy: This is something I barely use as well. I’m experimenting once again with my brows and I’m still looking for the right shade to fit the color of my hair.
The Faceshop’s Lip brush: I got a tip from a make up artist from a shoot recently about using one since it saves lipstick and it’s easier to apply evenly.
Estee Lauder’s Moisturizer: My T-Zone’s been so dry recently so I use this for a quick fix.
Shu Uemura’s eyelash curler. I’m sure everyone already swears by this product. I personally think think it’s the best out there!
MAC’s eyeshadow in charcoal brown.
Smashbox’s bronzer. One of the products I cannot leave home without! This is what I use on my brows and cheeks.
Nyx’s Full Coverage concealer. This is actually the only concealer that I stuck with over the last few months. It’s not dewy and it stays the whole day :)
What’s inside your make up kit? :)
If you were reader of my old personal blog before, you’d notice that i would ALWAYS be in tutus. I think it came to a point that I wore every color.. hahaha it was my biggest obsession. So last week, while i was fixing my closet and went through my skirts, i knew i just had to wear one again :) Hmm should i bring my obsession back?

Another week has passed and I can’t believe we’re almost halfway with December! Time’s too fast :( Anyway, here’s how our week went:
Our Sunday was spent shopping with our mommy in Greenhills to buy stuff for Baby Vern’s baptism :) The hopia above is Verniece’s favorite! We sometimes go all the way there just for it! haha
Verniece was in school for most of Monday and I didn’t have anything planned for me school and work wise so I decided to have an afternoon date with Ina! We wanted to catch up over lunch but there was too much talking involved that it extended till dinner time :)
Adventureee Tuesday!!!! Actually just a sisig adventure. HAHA! We wanted to pig out and we were all craving for all craving for sisig so we ate one platter each! Please don’t judge us :(
It’s been awhile since we had a busy Wednesday like the one we just had. We first spent most of the morning and the afternoon in Bjorn’s studio for a shoot in Bicutan then we went straight to Rockwell for a meeting with Native and then to Ortigas for our live podcast for MAD TV! :)
We got home at around 1 in the morning already from our shoot and we had to be up by 6 am for TV 5′s Good Morning Club taping all the way in Novaliches! It’s probably our earliest and farthest location for a shoot yet! :( haha
We had time to go home to nap but I had to leave in a few hours for a meeting and pull out at For Me and Verniece had to go to school to finish and submit her final project :)
A BIG thank you to NATIVE SHOES for our Metric concert tickets! :)
I swear, with Tommy and Marco around, I will get FAT. Before heading home, we dropped by Army Navy for midnight snack :P Because of our food fest, I went home at around 2 am already and I had to be up in a few hours for my 8 am class. I was in zombie mode already for most of Friday! :( Verniece had a goodnight’s rest so she was up and about!
After our class, I headed home to sleep while Verniece went to Belo. At around 6 pm, Verniece and I headed to Greenbelt 5 for Ayala Malls’ Joy of Giving. It was a live auction where all proceeds go to Yolanda victims :)
We spent most of our Friday night in preparing for Bloggers United 6! Most of my shoes were gone and most of Verniece’s dresses, too!
And here comes Saturday!!! :) It was Verne Nicolas’ baptism in the morning till around 2 in the afternoon and that’s why we came in too late for BU6 already in World Trade Center. But we had such sweet readers that alot of you guys actually waited!! You have no idea how much that meant to us :) A big thank you to everyone who came visited our booth!! :)
We were exhausted by the time we decided to leave Bloggers United but we just had to hype ourselves up for Sonic Carnival. It was TOOOOO epic!! A big thank you to the amazing team behind and congratulations :)
The best view!
What a week that was! :) Hope you had a great one!
Verniece and I are clearly different when it comes to styling items. Even if we both fall on the girly side, we both have a different take on it so we wanted to show how we would wear one item :) A leather jacket is actually one of the things I think every girl needs to have in her closet. Atleast one and in the color black because it can make a simple outfit look so put together.. you can even wear jeans and a tank top and dress it up with one!
A dress as feminine as this can be spiced up by wearing a leather jacket to make the look unpredictable. Ofcourse she sticks to her pearls as accessories :)
I love wearing the color white and sometimes I even go head to toe with the color. I wanted to accentuate the white details on the trim of the jacket and two white separates did the trick! :)
Who’s outfit did you like better? :)
Sharing you all how I do my everyday hair for school! :) It’s usually just the normal one sided braid but i love how i put the twist on top to avoid hair on my face :) this is perfect for girls who have bangs or small baby hair like me haha so here’s a smile 5 step tutorial to add on your school hairstyles, i hope you like it :)

Any suggestions what I should do next? :)
… maybe a beige one is fine. haha! I’ve been addicted to the colors black and white lately that I’ve been wearing it all week! Even all the clothes I’ve been pulling out and buying are all in those two colors. There’s something so put together about the combination of the two but it can get monotonous sometimes that adding a solid color will make it look interesting. I decided to pair it with beige today :)
Anyway, Verniece and I have been crazy busy the past week and it’s been awhile since we were this drained! I’m running on only two hours of sleep and I’ve been on zombie mode for the last 48 hours to the point that I’ve skipped on making decisions and just go with what’s planned because I know that my brain is only half working right now.. HAHA! Good thing that I saw Tommy and Marco earlier though so I got to unwind a bit :) I just got home from the Metric concert and after party we went to (all thanks to Native!! <3) and I have to be up in exactly 3 hours and 36 minutes for my 8 am class so goodluck to me! I’ll make sure to get a good night’s sleep tomorrow though to prepare to greet you with hyper hellos and hugs on Saturday! :)
Can’t wait for Bloggers United! :)
As i was preparing for the River Island event last saturday, the matchy white dress gave me an idea to mimick the famous icon, Marilyn Monroe. Hence the curly hair from the top and the red lipstick. Sadly, i don’t have a beauty mark on top of my lip and there was so fan under my skirt.. hahaha so this probably my modern version of her, what do you think? :)
I’ve always admired how strongly believes in herself and even if i wasn’t alive in the time she was famous, her wise words still apply until now :) So here’s my top 3 favorite quotes of Marilyn Monroe :)
1. Just because you fail once, it doesn’t mean you’re going to fail at everything. keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself because if you don’t, then who will? so keep your head high, keep your chin up and most importantly, keep smiling because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.
2. if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best
2. A smart girl leaves before she is left.
Here’s a post just in time for the season of red and green! :) I love repeating clothes not because it’s practical but it’s also a way for me to have fun with my clothes. Why only wear beautiful pieces once right? :) A top as pretty as this can be worn in three ways that’s appropriate for three different places: the workplace, at the mall and for a night out.
Look # 1: A top as revealing as this can actually be worn to work just by throwing a blazer on top of it and pairing it with a pencil skirt. I accessorized with just pearl earrings to keep it classy.
Look # 2: The mall! this is actually my favorite look out of the three :) I suggest to wear this with black or white gladiator sandals.
Look # 3: I think this top was meant to be worn at night and to keep revealing too much, I paired it with a girly lace skirt that’s not too short and accessorized with a bejeweled clutch.
What’s your favorite out of all the three looks? :)
