Day 7: Went to KLCC. And look! The Petronas… We visited the mall right beside the Twin Towers. The Cultural Center and a huge park were also a stone’s throw away.

Recycle, Reuse: two become one

Haha! The title whizzes me back to high school! My friends and I were such big fans of the Spice Girls! What! Yeah…

Anyway, for this recycled item, I used two old tops to make one dress.

top #1: plain shirt- used for the bodice of the dress.

top #2: animal print top- used for the skirt.

And, voila!

Well, I had hoped the dress would be more flattering on me, but it isn’t. And since I don’t want to get rid of it just yet, I’ll be tossing this into my sleepwear drawer instead. And speaking of sleep, I’m hitting the hay.

Ciao! Thanks for dropping by…

I already missed posting my style picks during the Oscars, Golden Globes, the Critic’s Choice, and whatnot, and it looks like I might miss posting my faves during the Grammys as well. But, I’ll make time. For now, let me leave you with an outfit I’d wear if I were to go to the Grammys. Hah! I wish! Hey, it’s free to dream, right?

Style File: Tartan Blues

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s been exceptionally cold here in my country since the New Year and I decided to air out the Dr., which I’ve had for over ten years. I’m not sure I succeeded in this grunge look, though… wearing tartan, leather, denim, stockings, and beanie…

MasterD

… had his First Communion last Wednesday.

Well, you might be wondering, First Communions, Baptisms, Confirmations, and the like are a bit of a big deal to most Filipino families.

MissL and I had been busy taking photos  of MasterD that we only managed to have very few of ours taken before the battery died.

This was taken at the mall after MasterD’s First Communion last Wednesday.

And yeah, I meant to post about about fashion stuff here, with the awards season in full swing. But, alas, I just couldn’t make time.. boohoo! And on a sidenote, today’s actually the highlight of the Sinulog Festival here in Cebu, so I try my darnedest to post, though not really about the festival. I had hoped to write about it here. But as we didn’t really take part in the revelry, I don’t have much to write about.  😦

Later…

Happy 2014!

… 9 days late?!? Yeah, well I was faced with a series of unfortunate events. Nothing too serious, I think. Basically, I’ve been very busy and sick. Yet the holidays was uneventful, especially because TheMister had been away. The happenings during the last quarter of 2013 have left me drained and numb, which isn’t a good way to start a new year. But I am not put off. Never. I welcome all challenges that come my way. So, bring it on 2014! Of course, I’m not saying that 2013 was a bad year for me. Not at all. Fact is, 2013 had been a good year that kick-started several positive (fingers crossed!) changes in my life. And it seems that things are slowly starting to fall into place now. Well, at least that’s how I feel.

Here’s a visual recap of my 2013 holidays.

The kids and I celebrated Christmas in Bacolod City.

Then, we spent the New Year in Metro Manila.

They say change is constant, but one thing constant about me is how grateful I am for the people in my life.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great year!

Happy Birthday

… to me!

This is what I imagined I would wear…

This is what I actually wore …

I’m wearing the Mister’s sweater as a top. And, yes, lately I find myself raiding his closet more frequently for over-sized comfortable shirts..

Been missing the Mister, thus I opted to wear something of his on my birthday. 🙂

My lovely sister, Kat, treated the kids to a movie and Ella, Mum, and Cara watched the movie with the kids. Oh! And Cara gifted me with a rockin’ two-tone monokini!

Excuse the backdrop but they watched Frozen, not Robocop, and they sooo love the movie!

And, me? Well, Kat took me to a spa for a massage. Isn’t she the sweetest?

But, I was starving so we had a snack first before heading to the spa.
