Take a BOW

 Hi! Haven't posted outfit photos these past few days, been busy with a lot of school works. Anyway, I'd just like to share what I wore to the first ever Bloggers United Indie Fridays!:)

Got lazy to dress up so I opted for a top and a bodycon skirt and voila!I think it's 'outfit post worthy' naman eh.haha:)) 

Top, bought at Supersale Bazaar  Bodycon Skirt, gift(thanks Tri:*) Purse, Accessorize Accessories, SM Department Store Accessories Shoes, Folded and Hung



 This skirt was given to me by my stylish friend, Tri Platon as a Christmas present! isn't is lovely? I love the lime green color and the bow detail! It's so me!

I dressed up at Jossa's house that time because I came from school so I wasn't able to bring a purse or a clutch so I borrowed her cute glittery purse with a bow detail again!How cohesive!:))

 My oh so comfortable shoes by Folded and Hung. I love how stores experiment with shoe styles these days!

Indie Fridays by Bloggers United!

Last February 24, 2011 was the first ever Indie Fridays by Bloggers United at Il Ponticello, Makati. Mad props to the Bloggers United team for pulling of this event!

So, I enjoyed the night with blogger friends and my elementary friends. We had a whole night of chilling, relaxing and entertainment. Indie Fridays was really a great idea. I think bloggers spend their busy life going around the metro for events and errands so this is the perfect time to relax after all the chaos and camera flashes.haha

WARNING: Photo dump

Our Vodka and Tequila Rose


Dae Lee and Reese Lansangan, love their duet and compositions! Witty!:)




YUM!
Swear, being a blogger means you have to take photos of pretty food to make your readers drool.haha chos! But swear, our friends waited for minutes for Jossa and I to take a good food photo. It's hard to take shots like this in dim light.

Mouthwatering potato wedges!
Rej and EJ!
Blurry!
Reese and Vica!!!:)

The funny thing that night is, I asked Dae Lee for a fansign for my friend. My friend Laih is a big fan of Dae on Tumblr. The moment I saw Dae that night, I immediately texted my friend. She asked me the favor and luckily, Dae gave it a go. Thank you so much Dae, you really made my friend happy :) haha!
Blogger group photo!hahaha!sorry for the low res photo, Kuya waiter kasi di nya magets and complicated kasi kumuha ng pic sa DSLR. haha! I understand Kuya :))

STATUS presents Perouvian Wasteland

Last January 21, the Bloggers United had an invite for the Photo exhibit entitled 'Perouvian Wasteland' by the photographer Perou presented by Status Magazine. It was held at the Ayala Museum.

As an art student, I find this event very interesting. It's an exhibit, and looks like Perou's field of photography is Fashion and Portraits. I really enjoyed looking at his photos. He had collaborations with some famous and great names in different industries like Katy Perry, Vivienne Westwood, Dita Von Teese, Jessie J, Kid Cudi and many more.




 Here are some of his works...




Awesome huh?Trust me, these works really look great in person. Mad props to Perou for his photography skills. Great exhibit!

There's an after party at Robot, we had dinner at Bon Chon first.

Jonessa and I.
Jonard!
Had a little window shopping before going to Robot.

Finally arrived at Robot. I love this place. Great interior and food! I love Japanese food. :)
Photo inside the CR. The loo is probably the awesome-est place inside Robot! I love the glass mosaic walls!:)
Paul, Ava and Gersh :)
With Perou!
*I cant believe I dont have a pic with Melai in my camera!:P

with Jonard!hahaha:))

Sorry for being M.I.A. these past few days, been busy with school.

XOXO
