WARNING: This post is about to get really hippie 

This fringe top has got to be one of the most scene-stealer pieces I've had. I got myself stuck in door knobs, car doors and chairs and it was quite embarrassing haha but fashion is all about taking risks.

The service was really moving today, it was entitled RSVP and it's an acronym for a French phrase meaning "respond". Sometimes God call us to do something totally insane, physically impossible and morally scandalous like what happened to Mary but in the end you'll see that 'aahhh so that's what it means'.

In accordance to responding right, Filipinos just got heart-broken due to Pacquiao being knocked out in his fight with Marquez. Social websites displayed opinions of people of different kinds, most were sad about his loss and continued to consider the honor Pacquiao gave to Philippines, some declared about their hunch Marquez winning, some blamed religion but all I can say is, that is the nature of the game, the nature of life, you lose from time to time and we are bound to get back up and do better. After all, it is not what happens to you, it's what you do after.

Lastly, RIP John Lennon huhu. Thank you for bringing some sense and color to this world. You will forever be remembered!

Unlimited Joy

Let me start by saying THIS DAY IS ONE FINE DAY. Everything went smoothly, there were literally no cringes or raised eyebrows. The day started early as we're all prepped by 7:30am to attend the 8:00 am service. We had the third installment of the series Unlimited, Pastor Patrick talked about the burden of being in debt and what the bible says about it. 

The first principle of debt is that you need to get out of it and in order to do that, there has to be a change in your lifestyle and must utilize what is available. You do the practical which is changing your lifestyle and God will do what seems impossible, he will multiply what you have. That's how God's grace works, you have to obey him and he will do the rest. Besides the financial debt, there is also a personal debt and God will also pull you out of that -- He already did the most important thing which is to erase the debt of sin, how much more the other things? 

After we attended church, we had lunch in Mr. Choi's Kitchen to celebrate my brother's 11th birthday, it's actually an early celebration -- he'll turn 11 tomorrow. I can't believe how fast time is, it seems like yesterday he only played with legos and never argued about anything. I am happy with how he is now -- he's a very intelligent boy and has self-discipline, he's also very understanding though sometimes I'm a hardheaded sister. I'm certain that I love my brother so so much. 

Lastly, this post has a special place in my heart because it was my Mom who took the shots-- she's also the one who directed haha.

Necklace: Love Diva

P.S. I adore Bench now, finally, Philippine rtw brands are now stepping it up to the next level 


You can never go wrong with an lbd especially with this kind of lbd, an lbd with a twist. I love the asymmetrical cut of this dress, it makes me feel confident. This look may be more of a party look and that shows I dress according to my mood. Last Sunday, my refined edgy girl side dominated which is why I came up with this. I chose to wear eye-catching accessories to lessen the need for bling-bling.

Dress: Overrun
Purse: Aldo
Flats: Zara

Fa la la la la

Red is one of my favorite colors, it's such a happy color and at the same time, it's classy. If you're my schoolmate, you know that my backpack is red, and I have a number of other red bags and red shoes, even my baking materials are red. I used to hate red because I thought it was superstitious but my mom liked it so much, so maybe I acquired that as I see her with red wallet, clothes, shoes, chairs, toys and all other things.

This was my outfit last last week in church and the feeling was amazing, maybe that's what happens when you wear things that have significance to you. For this outfit, I applied print on print and color coordination which was the thing last season.

Also, Christmas is near, it's exactly a month away so I kinda went seasonal for this look. I am very much looking forward to Christmas 2012 since my Dad will be home, my aunt too, also I built a great relationship with people especially with my best friends Mary Jo and Diana making me conclude that this Christmas will be special and memorable.

And of course, I have a wishlist, a real wishlist! By real, I mean I now recognize the things that I love which is arts. On top of my list is a sewing machine, next are art materials particularly the Winsor & Newton watercolor, then clothes and shoes and the thing I really really really wish I'd get is a ticket to The Script's concert but effort never goes out of style, so a card or self-made bracelet or a collage would make me happy as much as the things in my list would. :)

Happy Halloween!

Halloween 2012 is the most spontaneous halloween I had in my entire life. It was 7pm of October 31st when I randomly shouted "Hey costume tayo!" (Let's wear costumes!) and my siblings headed quickly to their closets to look for costume-y garments.

I planned to be Esther from the movie The Orphan because I wanted to wear this dress from the ukay so bad and I thought that it is something that Esther would wear. I tried my best to achieve her porcelain white skin but it just won't  happen, also, I used an oxblood colored lipstick to add "evilness" to my halloween costume. 
While I was browsing the photos I realized that it's soooooo far from Esther because 1. I had long hair, she had shoulder length 2. All her clothes have collar, mine doesn't have one and 3. She's thin, and well me, I'm the exact opposite but it was worth a shot, not bad for a first timer haha. 

I'm gonna disturb your sleep!!

Bernard as a corpse. Hehe I love how he poses this way

Beatrice as a vampire ballerina

Benedict as a zombie pirate

My siblings are so cuuuuuute!

Pwede? HAHA

P.S. Do you now realize how crazy my family is? :D

I believe in pink

I wore this last last week to church, better late than never right? The whole pants-folding + ankle boots was inspired by one of the streetstyle photos in Topshop's fb page. I think it looks nice especially if you have long legs which I obviously don't have so yeah working on it. 

The gold top was from a thrift shop, it was quite a steal and that's Audrey Hepburn on my shirt! Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of a woman during her time and maybe until now, she's just one refined and exemplary lady. 

Gold top: thrifted
Skinny jeans: Dorothy Perkins
Bag: Charles & Keith
Boots: Zara

My post title is a line from her famous quote: 
I believe in pink
I believe that laughing 
Is the best calorie burner
I believe in kissing
 Kissing a lot
I believe in strong
When everything seems to be going wrong
I believe that happy girls
Are the prettiest girls
I believe that tomorrow 
Is another day
And I believe in miracles

Work the t-shirt

Deadly studs

Hehey I'm backkkkk, I won't complain about school or other stuffs this time cos truth be told I just kinda went through a phase when I thought expressing your thoughts is a waste of time and yeah my mind's okay now haha.

I quite had a turning point and I'm focused to doing great in school now which explains the reason why I don't stress myself in dressing up now hence the minimal look. Also, I browsed the streetstyle photos this f/w 2013 fashion week and I admired the t-shirt + boyfriend jeans + kitten heels look. I have a hunch that this minimal yet edgy trend was inspired by Balmain or Alexander Wang.

As to what happened today, a series called "The End" had its last installment earlier and it talks about the importance of having the right perception of hell and heaven because the way we can see the future affects the way you live.It's one of my favorite series cos conspiracy theories like the great tribulation was tackled. I also watched Wreck it Ralph with the family and it was so so so good! You can learn a lot from it and the concept was just perfect, seriously hands down to Disney. The main idea of the movie is that you should change the way the society sees you if you think that you are right and society's wrong. Sometimes we also think that we are programmed to do a certain thing and that we cannot do a thing about it but truth is, we control our lives and no one can decide for your life but yourself. I really do wish Market! Market! had a 3D one but nevertheless Wreck it Ralph is one fine movie, definitely a must-see!

White and Blue cos I Fell for You

After 100 million years of sleep, I am finally back!!! I promise to turn on my blogger side again, expect tons of new posts this week. :D

I wore this comfortable yet fab outfit to church and I would have to say that it's one of my "whew I don't want to change clothes ever" moment. For the past few weeks, I've resorted to flats and decided to embrace my 5'6" height hence the gladiator sandals piece. I also thought of wearing a hat but that might make Earth revolve faster and bring me the summer season haha.

The entire month of September + 1st week of October was a blast, it was a month of relaxation and fat-burning, I don't know how that could happen but that's what happened to me haha. I wish it lasted longer but sadly, field demo practices have passed, Foundation Day has passed, Teacher's Day has passed, I now have to face reality. :(

Tank top: French Connection
Maxi skirt: Overrun
Bag: Charles&Keith
Gladiators: Charles&Keith
Sunnies: Mango
Necklace: Aldo

In case you're wondering what my post title means, listen to this: (+ I think the song's perfect for a cruise party!)

btw I'm not in love, I'm just enjoying the beat of this song

indie-x c-art

As I was cleaning my cabinet, I saw a sealed pack of blank index cards placed near my book, The Fault in Our Stars. I was itching to paint that night but I'm too lazy to paint on a bond paper, I thought it was too big, so finding the index cards made me hum allelujiah. 

I obviously wasn't in the mood to paint something serious but my fingers really wanted to be intimate with paint brushes. To avoid stressing my brain on what to paint, I just thought of the things that I want to be painted on my nails hehe so yeah they're palm trees, evil eyes, diamonds, bananas, hippy skulls, aztec print and well I don't really want unicorns in my nails but I think they're cute to look at. 

palm tree of my eye

Double-sided Tears

If we've been friends for quite some time you'll know that I'm scared of rats. Seeing one makes me feel like throwing up and my whole being just starts to shake in fear. Their grey color and long tail scare me a lot but the thought of being chewed by them to death scares me the most.

Earlier in English class, we read a short story titled "The Vanity of the Rat". The story's really good and I admire the style of the author, the way he/she put humor in the story. Everything was fine until we got to the activity, Mr. Kris asked us to put pictures in sequence in accordance to the story, Mr. Sun went first then Mr. Cloud then Mr. Wind then there goes Mr. Wall and lastly Roger Rat. Roger Rat looked like a real rat who was staring at me and the photo was 3 dimensional-ish which made me gasp. I managed to cover the photo with a xerox copy of the story but my tummy started to feel funny and tears started to form on my eyes, Leo and Angel were laughing because I did my best to avoid the photo. After minutes of discussion, we had a group work and our task was to find an appropriate song for the story or in our case, we made a song and also make a music video. I begged Sir Kris to remove the photo but Leo got it instead, he started to flash it wherever I looked and well I was screaming the whole time, Chloe also said "Bianca!" then she raised the photo but I really cried when Kim slid the photo and it stopped near my lap, I freaking thought Roger Rat was gone but my groupmates just scared me!!

Even though Roger Rat wasn't a good reason to cry, I also cried cos of so much laughing, the lyrics we came up with were so funny that my jaws hurt.

To the beat of Marry You:
they say the shining sun is the most powerful
but nooooooooo
the clouds can goooooo
as the wind blowsssss
and the wall stops it
but the rats put a hole in the walllllll

To the beat of Speak Now:
don't squeak yes
run away now
i'll meet you when you're out
at the hole
in the sewer 
by the back door

To the beat of Breaking Free (we didn't include it in the mv tho):
We're cheese-grilling, tail-wiggling
there's not a hole in the colony
that we won't inhabit
if we're squeaking
then we're breaking free
you know humans will kill us
with pesticides, insecticides and rat killers
creating space between us
'til we can't eat cheese

To the beat of Thunder:
your tail was the longest in the colonyyyyyyyy
i will never touch another
you'll always be my ________ dancer?
so bring on your tailllllllll
and your big teeth toooooooo


Anyway here's a spinning coke for you, it's as undecided as the reason for my tears lol
