ThOUGhTS | Embracing Your Perfect Imperfections.

Hi, everyone! 

Before you scroll down or click - Read More, let me say you'll be viewing dark (un-enhanced) photos. These were taken indoors with not much natural lighting. But I decided to post them despite the not-so-good-quality and despite the style blog rule:

"You can get away with bad content. But not with bad pictures."

Dark and dingy

OUTFiT | From Wardrobe to Neighborhood

I have quite a collection of blazers, cardigans, jackets and the like in my closet despite the summer-all-year atmospheric condition in my country. For me, blazers, in particular, help amp up an outfit no matter how simple the pieces you have on. I am attracted with plain to bold prints and pair them with almost any clothing I can think of. 

There's beauty in anything rustical...

OUTFiT | Midweek Dress-down

I am quite lucky to be working in an industry where dress down is allowed on certain days. As a Talent Acquisition Supervisor, there's an unwritten rule that I must be "presentable" at all times, meaning, corporate or smart casual clothing is required. I don't complain, for dressing appropriately is a way of expressing respect to people or the given situation. But having worn high heels, blazers and pearls almost the entirety of my career, it's an amazing feeling to put my sneakers on at work on a weekday. 

Me: Is it right over left? Or left over right? (Tryna sit like a lady)

SToRY | What an Experience!

I get to be a "model" for less than a day when I joined Forever 21's photo competition for their 30th anniversary.

These photos were taken by my younger sibling, Hershey. She has worked for professional photographers and is into arts herself. With her innate talent and creative ideas, I thought that she is the perfect person to help me take home Forever 21's totally uh-mazing prize!

OUTFiT | My Only Season

Since it's nearly spring and I am wearing florals, Miranda Priestly's voice is strongly echoing in my head...

"Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking."

Alright, alright. I've known just 2 seasons my lifetime, HOT and HOTTER. I've been wanting to experience fall, spring and winter. But hearing my boyfriend complain about windchill, snowflakes, snow storms... how he shovels his driveway almost everyday for 2 hours (awwhhh... *hugs*), make me doubt the last of the three...

One of those beautiful days!

OUTFiT | Classic. Basic.

Late afternoon is my favorite time of day. I find serenity when the sky turns orange-y and the sun kisses the horizon goodbye.

I kinda suffered from food coma the previous night that I decided to have my post birthday celebration by lazily walking around the business district chasing sunlight. The weather absolutely was perfect. 

Is this the last light of Durin's day?

STORY | I'm Another Year Wiser

March 1. My birthday!

Having balloons and celebrating it with friends and family was quite a blast. I never really get to have a birthday party growing up. So, the thought of being able to host your own celebration got me pretty excited. Yeah, I get giddy over little things. 

It's time to bring out the big balloons
