Love for Leopard

 So I guess this is my last blog post for this 2011!

What I wore to Enchanted Kingdom yesterday! I don't know why I've got all eyes on me? Does it look bad? Or is the leopard just gone wild in my outfit? or do I look like a leopard?hahha!Kidding. I just love leopard so much, I'm staring to build my leopard collection :)) Anyway, I love this outfit! It's so comfortable! I could go chic while having fun with the rides at EK. We all had a great time. :)

A Little Bit of Red

A quick outfit post before I go to sleep. I need to wake up early because we're going to Enchanted Kingdom tomorrow! To my international readers, Enchanted Kingdom is the biggest and most popular theme park here in the Philippines. I'm going with the family and some of my childhood friends tomorrow. I can't hide my excitement! EK is the only place where I always return to my childish self. Like I just came out of a cage of being a grown up. HAHA!

Anyway, I'll blog about my EK experience in the next few days. This is what I wore yesterday to our High School reunion at my friend's house. Dressed up casually because we're just having a house party. Wearing one of my favorite piece of clothing, shorts! Wore my newest detachable collar as well from Miss Sartorial. I was so giddy when I received the package the other day so I wore the collar the next day!haha!Isn't it cute?:)

So, here are some of the photos!

Work Wear Diaries I

I wore this last Monday for my advance work for my OJT with designer Ms. Twinkle Ferraren. I rarely wear pants because I'm a big fan of skirts, dresses and shorts. But I tried pulling off this attire for a more formal look. The weather was sunny that day so I just wore a sheer top and black skinny jeans to make it more comfortable.

1. Sheer Top, Supersale Bazaar 2.Skinny Jeans, Bench, 3.Bag, Versace 4.Belt, Esprit



5.Necklace, Ruckus 


Happy Holiday everyone!

Please drop by Moonleaf Maginhawa Branch tomorrow for the Bloggers United Pop Up Bazaar for the Sendong Relief Drive!

Christmas Shopping

This is what I wore last Sunday. Christmas shopping with the whole family. Bought clothes, shoes, gifts, decors etc! Honestly, even though we shopped last Sunday, we're still missing some things so we still hit the mall every now and then to finish with the gifts and groceries.

I want a casual but chic look that day so I wore my high waisted shorts with the cute bow detail to make it look more casual. I just put on a blazer to make it look not so 'pambahay' and of course my favorite Mary Jane printed wedges for a sky high effect.haha!I like to look tall coz I'm just 5'2 or 5'3 :| :))

 1.Striped mini dress used as top, Forever 21 2.Nude Blazer, Vintage  3.High waisted Chiffon Shorts, Soiree SM Department Store  4. Printed Mary Jane Wedges, Jellybean



 5.Yellow sling bag, Impulse Co. 6.Accessories, bought from different bazaars


This is the only thing that I want to share to everyone! I can't spill the others because I want it to look new to your eyes when I post it for a different outfit. This my new purple suede platform heels by Folded and Hung. I love how stores nowadays re-invent new items. This is my new purple shoes! I'm in love with it! I guess you guys should check out Folded and Hung's different shoe designs! They're all amazing and unique! I want to but all of it! So go and check out the F&H store nearest you!:)

My House Husband: Ikaw na!

Last December 17, Bloggers United was invited to the 'My House Husband:Ikaw na!' Bloggers Press Conference. It was held at Guilly's Tomas Morato. Over 50 bloggers were there. Honestly, I was psyched when Pax invited me to the press con, even my mom wants to go with me. It's an honor to meet the great actors and actresses behind this movie in person!

My House Husband is the official Metro Manila Film Festival entry of Octoarts Films. This is the much awaited dramedy (drama+comedy) directed by the most admired Direk Joey Reyes for this year's MMFF.

Guilly's Tomas Morato
We we're served great food before the program started.

Melai and Shalala hosted the press con.


This movie is starring big actors and actresses such as Judy Ann Santos as Mia, a mother wife and a sole breadwinner. Ryan Agoncillo as Rod, a husband who is bank manager one day and house husband the next. Comedienne Eugene Domingo as Aida a mistress who happens to be Rod and Mia's neighbor. The movie is revolves around a life of a house husband, how he deals with things at home, his wife and neighbors.

 Ryan and Juday

Rocco Nacino and Ellen Adarna

Luckily, I got the chance to ask them a question!
Q:What do you think is the message of this movie to families or sa mga mag-asawa?

Juday answered that these days, it's not just the men who works for the family. Sa hirap ng buhay kailangan na kumayod ng mag-asawa. The wife must also do something in order to keep the family living. Vice versa, the men can also do what the women does for the family which is household work. Maging praktikal.

here are other questions:

Q: What makes you trust Direk Joey?

Ryan: We've worked with him numerous times already. He is a master of middle-class, he has integrity. After all, he's done 65 films and bagged reputable awards.
 Judy Ann: Ay, wala nang tanong tanong pagdating kay direk Joey. He's a professional and his stories are always real and relatable. We're so honored to be working with him all these years.

Last question that hit me was asked by a showbiz reporter:
Q: "what is the difference between a presscon with bloggers and showbiz / cinema reporters?"

 Judy Ann :"Grabe, mas nakakakaba ang mga bloggers. Iba sila magtanong eh. Nakaka-tense sila kasi seryoso sila at alam mong gusto nila ng diretsong sagot sa mga tanong!" 
Eugene Domingo:"Oh diba, nakakaloka? Kita niyo na ang difference ng blogger at showbiz / movie reporter?"


I went to the comfort room after the press con ended and to my surprise, Ms. Eugene was there. I was so starstrucked because she's standing in front of me. HAHA! I remember how she adores Juday and Ryan as a couple. They're her kind of 'ideal couple'. We had a little chat with her and took a pic. It was great to meet her in person. She's one of my favorite comediennes. She has 2 movies for the MMFF! 


Photo with my blogger friends!

Keigh, Pax, Gie and Belle 
 Paul and I
 Pax and Melai
JP and I.
and of course with Jossa how could I forget!haha!


We all had a great time!Mad props to the people behind this movie for making it successful!

So guys, don't forget to watch 'My House Husband: Ikaw Na!" this coming December 25 for the MMFF!
