If there’s a local brand I will never stop loving, it’s ForMe. They first contacted me to blog about them about two years ago and have been regularly pulling out every time they have a new collection ever since. I personally think that it’s one of the brands that perfectly embodies my personal style. It’s quite hard to define mine actually… I’ve always described mine as structural girly since I’ve always liked mixing really girly items with structural pieces (duh haha) yet whenever someone else describes mine it’s girly but edgy which I do not get. ForMe is a very girly brand actually, yet it’s very age appropriate. It’s not too cute, not too stiff either. Their pieces fit REALLLY well too! Okay, just thought of raving about the brand that supplies most of my clothes nowadays :)
Anyway, these set of photos were taken back in Cebu and I can honestly say that the island forces you to dress down. That place is like Manila in terms of how urbanized it is but on vacation forever! haha I just have one more outfit post from my trip there and I’m actually quite sad about that. I’ll be going back soon and I’ll make sure to take more than 3 this time :) That place is too pretty!

We all have those music festivals we dream of going to. I’ve been to the biggest one in Asia, Zouk Out, two years ago and that’s where I discovered how different of an experience it is compared to watching just one or two artists in one sitting. I have two music festivals I want to experience before I turn 25 (I think it’s everyone’s, actually!) and it’s Coachella and Tomorrowland! Still crossing my fingers I get to experience one of them next year as a 22nd birthday gift to myself! :)
We’ve all seen videos of those festivals online and I’m sure you’re wishing a similar one would happen here in the Philippines. Close Up’s Summer Solstice last year was probably the closest thing there is for me when it comes to an EDM based music festival but noone has attempted one that has a line up from different music genres. Lucky for us, 7107 happened and here’s a blog post to tell you all about our experience:
We got to the festival just in time for day 2 of international acts. It was my dad’s birthday the day before so we couldn’t go to the first! No regrets though! :)
We loved the weather of Pampanga. It was surprisingly chilly – just the perfect amount though! The festival was held in one of the big empty lands in Clark! It definitely had the coachella vibe going on.
Verniece, Ezra and Ifelt like we chaperoned these kids the whole day!
It wasn’t that full yet in the afternoon but everyone we talked to said that more people came on the second day.

The night kicked in and everyone was just waiting for day 2′s three big acts to start: Kendrick Lamar, Empire of the Sun and Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was really excited for Empire!
7107 had two stages: the main stage and the carabao stage. Anyone who loves to dance in raves and clubs would have definitely enjoyed the Carabao one more. Local djs were playing one after the other.
When Kendrick Lamar and Empire of the Sun ended, I expected that the amount of people in the crowd would lessen or atleast retain in number. Boy I was wrong! Red Hot Chili Peppers brought in more people!
It was Smart and Guess that sponsored our tickets and took care of us all throughout the festival. I’m glued to my phone now 24/7 and we all now how easily the battery of the #SmartIphone5s drains but thank God Smart’s hang out has charging stations all around the tent! Plus the VIP area they had was above everyone else so we weren’t hassled by having to squish ourselves in the crowd. Guess on the other hand had one of the chillest and coolest lounge because of the pool they built in! Yup, it had a poool!! How cool was that? haha! A big big thank you to the two brands for taking care of us!! :)

Next week, our next stop would be Albay, Bicol!! :) Any readers from there?? :) or if you have been there, please suggest places where we can go :)
Anyway, i’m currently in a photoshoot for Unica Hija! sorry for the short post, i’ll try to update it after this :) hope you have a great day!
