REViEW | My Favorite Orange Clutch

Hi, everyone!

Today, I'll be sharing with you my favorite clutch bag from a'postrophe! This versatile must-have also comes in green and red! For ages, I've been searching for that perfect clutch. I fell in-love with this piece because it isn't too big or small. It can fit almost everything that's in my regular bag. Believe it or not, I can also squish in a small umbrella and JR Tolkien's The Hobbit, pocket edition *wink* It's practical, trendy, durable and inexpensive! It's also fun for it makes any outfit dashing!

SToRY | Back to School

I was invited by my friend -- who's a professor at New Era University -- to conduct mock job interviews in 2 of his classes. He is teaching several major subjects for the College of Business Administration. Having graduated from this university myself (AB Political Science), I was delighted and honored to give back and share my years of expertise in Talent Acquisition.

Stepping into the halls of NEU, seeing long time acquaintances, whipping pass former classrooms and visiting the cafeteria made my insides smile. This is definitely one of the places I call home.

My outfit today perfectly reflects this experience. Bright, celebratory, jubilant and thankful. Choosing a colorful, smart casual look is also deliberate. I want to make an impression of --- "Hello, I am approachable. Don't be shy to answer my questions." --- to the students I am going to speak with. Almost every piece here is thrifted! 

Blazer, dress and shoes: Less than $26.00! Hooraahh!

OUTFIT | The Bright Feline

It's officially the weekend! Can I get a yahoo? While most of us are anticipating late night outs and dusk till dawn parties, I am looking forward to sleeping in. My days off would include a good book, hot chocolate/coffee and a comfy couch. That's my definition of "party".

I am always excited smelling the weekend morning dew drops and going to Church. My worship days are Wednesday or Thursday and Saturday or Sunday. Right after my day's activity? I go straight to Church and fulfill my sacred duty. My IG followers already know that faith is my number one priority ---- one of the 20 facts about me. I believe that nothing beats a perfect day than hearing the words of God, thanking Him for His continuous blessings. So I try to look my best for Him.

Today, I pulled out an animal print dress and paired it with a bright yellow blazer. To add that classy touch, I accessorized the ensemble with a gold chained necklace.

I am walking on sunshine!

ThOUGhTS | CHEER-py! :)

Whew! This past few weeks has been an intense roller coaster ride for me. If there's one thing I've learned, it's we’re all placed in a very difficult task. It won't hurt to stop for a while... look at the sky and smile. Life is definitely what we make it and it's not bad at all to leave behind something worthwhile for others to believe that there are tons of beautiful things to be discovered in this world.

My battle ain't over yet, I am still yet to face new challenges and trials. But I am extremely confident that everything will end up well.

Up close

FOoD | An Afternoon Stroll and More

I love hanging out with my crazy cousins! Well, in this photo, “cousin”. I didn’t get the chance to take pictures of the uber fun-ness that occurred the entire day. But trust me, it involved a lot of laughter, street food, more food, insane karaoke and an exhilarating motorcycle ride.

The long afternoon begins with a quiet stroll at the park. The University of the Philippines’ campus is a inviting sight. It never fails to provide the right amount of serenity, joy, inspiration and abode to those who seek. Well, who better to join me in my temporary madness but my cousin, girlfriend and best friend, Mae! Long walks and talks are just a few of the typical things girls enjoy. So, I guess it was a good idea to leave the boys at home. Haha.
