Christmas Gift

Ho ho ho Merry Christmas! & merry new outfit post! πŸ™‚ Yeeyy it has been such a long time but hey now, it is now here. :>

 

Yesterday, I went to by myself an iPhone as my Christmas gift–it was a well-deserved one considering I was multi-tasking the whole year round. Lol thanks, mum for chipping in. Hahaha! Anyway, last night, my bestfriend friend, 2012 Candy Correspondent Jona Fernandez told me that the new Christmas color was Teal! Coincidentally that is what I wore to the mall. Yey!

I just love my whole ensemble. Don’t you? I wore a knitted top & skin tight jeggings in teal! Fun fact: my knitted top belonged to my auntie in the early 90’s. Vintage. Sort of. :>


HPIM0011My arm candies, of course. πŸ™‚ The last one actually is my favorite skull bracelet. I have a lot of them in my trinket box but decided to just wear the colorful one. You’ve seen the other two from my last outfit post though. πŸ™‚

And the cute, Like A Sir ring my bestfriend, Joanne gave me. So cute!

HPIM0014My wedges are from the US. I just love how Orange brightens up the whole outfit and it doesn’t hurt that it matches teal so very well. I’m super psyched!

 

My Christmas eve wasn’t very interesting at all. I went to my cousin’s house to meet for BarcodeMNL then went back home for Noche Buena then slept HAHAHA I honestly think that the older I get, the smaller gifts I get huhuhu but I also believe that Christmas is not about receiving– it is always about giving. :> Always. How was your Christmas? πŸ™‚

But the thing that made me really happy is that finally, Patricia Prieto of ParadigmaΒ has featured our t-shirt brand on her blog.

We hope that in the future, we’d have more collaborations with other fashion bloggers. πŸ™‚ Check us out on Facebook, hereΒ or follow us on twitter here. Also, follow Patricia Prieto’s twitter hereΒ and read the feature here.

Cheap dinner & good company

It has been a long time since I posted something relevant. I’ve been pretty busy with a number of stuff (UAAP work, #BarcodeMNL & school. Whew!) so blogging is in somehow at the bottom–if not, in the middle–of my priority list, but it is still in the list. Haha! So now, here I am posting something about a spontaneous date with my bestfriend. ❀ What I love most about this night was that she was pretty patient with my endless stories about Wesley, Phil and Ted of Wong Fu Productions. Hahaha! πŸ™‚ If you follow me on Twitter you’d now that I’m in love with them and Ted Fu (my fave!) tweeted me back. Yey

Sooooo, today was the start of my preliminary examination and I had four consecutive exams to attend to and I can honestly tell you it was very exhausting. I thank God that Joanne was free tonight so we were able to just hang out. We ate at McDonalds for dinner ❀ Then after that, we swung by my house to lend her my copy of Ramon Bautista’s Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo.

Yeahp, I finally bought that and I was so happy because it included a notebook! If you knew me, you’d know I love papers. All kinds of papers! Haha πŸ™‚ And yes, the background was UAAP volleyball. I just wanted to do something ironic. πŸ˜› Anyway, so while we were walking to my house, Joanne spotted this cool lighting on a door next to my house, so we decided to experiment (what we do best holla). It came out pretty good! I think….. Lol thank you to my HP camera cos Joanne forgot hers. 😦 Sad.

I didn’t change the color much cos I loved the soft tone effect it had + on the last photo, we looked whiter than our usual skin tone. Hihi With regards to my out fit, I didn’t really do anything (obviously) cos when I got home from school, I threw on anything within reach, sadly. 😦 but I still liked it since it’s just kind of a laid-back spontaneous nearby dinner.

I’ll end this post with a cover of The Power of Love by Gabrielle Aplin. Joanne has been raving about this since the start of our dinner. Lol

Fridate x Ravioli Bistro x Bestfriend

It has been a long time since my bestfriend from highschool, Joanne and I hung out so we had dinner last night in Mall of Asia. The best way to celebrate the last day of my semester πŸ™‚

So we decided to eat at this secluded Italian restaurant, Bistro Ravioli. Their pasta dishes are really good! Joanne made a food review in her blog (here). I think we ate too much hahaha but all so worth it! πŸ™‚

But before we dined in Bistro, we bumped into one of our closest friend, Aya Pornel who was really really sweet because she treated us to an ice cream and fondue party @ Swensen’s. Isn’t she the best? We love you, Ayabols!!! πŸ™‚ & you are totally adorable! Hihihi

Then we compared BBM display photos–Aya’s or mine? Manny Pacquiao or Adam Levine? Lol I’m sorry, Adam but I think I’m going with Aya’s Manny Pacquiao ❀ HAHAHAHA

For my look that night, I didn’t want to be so dressed up but also, not super dressed down. I opted for jeans and a cute sheer blouse I got from a thrift store in Pasig. I wore my trusted pair of flats which was in a summer-y color cos I got it last summer from SM Department store! πŸ™‚

Love love love my newly purchased gumdrop bracelets. I saw these (well, the skull ones but similar) from my favorite fashion blogger, Patricia Prieto but I bought these instead thinking I should start from the basics πŸ™‚

Thank you to my wonderful bestfriend for all of the shots in this post! Love you!!! πŸ™‚

Bohemian Rhapsody

HAHAHA I just had to use that title.

Yesterday was Adi’s birthday! She’s my former service-mate from high school such a dear friend and I’ve known her for six years now. We haven’t seen each other in the longest and I can’t help but fawn over her bohemian beauty last night at the Fiamma Bar in Makati.

I forgot to tuck my tummy! Huhuhu I look fat in the photos!!!! Oh well loved my outfit ❀ ❀

Loved the whole night! Got to see friends I haven’t seen in the longest. Drank a lot so it kind of gave me a buzz 😐 Unlimited beer!!!! Hahahah So happy I didn’t get rashes after cos I usually do.

Thanks Adi for such a blast and Ate Bea Balcom for the ride home! πŸ™‚
