I don’t know yet :( I’m on the last week of my summer and I have to figure out how I’ll manage to still go ;__;
Crowns, when worn, always brings out the inner litol princess in me. I haven’t gotten pass this stage and I think I never will. The classical era will forever tickle my fancy. I might have been one of their princesses in my past life! Kiddiiiingg *u* But if I was, I’d reallyyyy want to go back and experience how it feels to be like a true princess <3 Maybe on my debut? hihiii *u*
If you remember I also have this dress in mint green meheheee. It’s so versatile I can wear it to a lot of events! Oh and to make it look prom pretty, I wore a flower clip *u*
Coincidence, pink and polka for my sweetheart and me *u*
Candy had Elmo again!!! Tho it would be so much better if DJ came too :<
All so fabulous awardees with their unique style!!! <3 All deserving of their award for giving inspiration to many girls out there *u*
Each booth had a long line, Yana and I chose to line up at whisper because they had this small picture booklet that makes it look like we’re moving when you flip each page *u* Then someone approached us to play a game called “Pose in hole” where you have to copy the pose on the screen. When I heard GCs…. from COTTON ON I didn’t have second thoughts on joining!! and to my surprise even tho my score wasn’t the highest they chose me as winner!! <3
At whisper’s stage with the two winners *u* They were both so cute and super nice to me!! only around 13-14 and I’m turning 17 Y AM I OLD OLREDI? ;___;
Third time to meet Vern and Verniece and they would still say that they remember meeee :”) The sweetest and prettiest twins <3 <3

Had a great night with my girls, Yana, Yara and Kat!! <3 All these photos are taken from Yara’s camera *u*
If I were to choose which style I’m most comfortable in, regardful that it screams “meee”, it’s this quirky yet girly top plus skirt combo *u*
in the mood to spice up for fun! haii baseball cap! *u*
Spotted a great location for shooting at the second floor of our future house (which is apparently still under construction) *u* Very much inspired by photoshoots with unfinished or abandoned structure venues where a dramatic setting is exhibited.
Anything that has an anchor or a bow catches my attention, I’d definitely get it if I can *u*

Last midnight, I had an epiphany that dealt with my studies and goals. Upon entering college in a few days, there came sudden realizations of what I want out of my life from now on. Compared to some of my friends who chose their own profession such as a doctor, an attorney or a teacher, my chosen course doesn’t guarantee immediate success.
A flashing three years and one term, well I would want to work really soon to help my parents. But how do I do that? Mindset. Full time effort. Commitment. I realized what I’m supposed to be focusing on. I will do everything. I will work my hardest. I will have to be the greatest I can be.
I hope you do too. :)

Overview of how my april was! no beach or outings :< Let’s see how may goes *u*
This perharps is the most blogger-like photoshoot I had with my brother *u* Couldn’t be more thankful to him despite the troubles we encountered caused by the lack of good lighting. Aside from adjusting the camera’s brightness, ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, can someone give me an advice on how else I can beat this light difficulty? (thank you in advance! *u*)
Allow me to insert short captions that are wondrously uttered by what you’re about to see. lol hihi
You would always have two paths to choose from, one way opposite to the other but both waiting for you to take.
By that time you’re on a risk to lose the other, but there’s so much more to sacrifice in the long run.. that you have to ready yourself.
Once you’ve reached its midpoint, fair enough you’re not supposed to turn back. — It can only be done by the cowards, those who find shallow reasons to walk out when faced to unlikely complicated matters, or the wise ones, who keep in mind what’s best not only for himself.
If ever you figured it’s the wrong track, perhaps restoring what’s broken would be gradual. You will want it to remain the same but chances are little and you can only hope for that to happen.
Recover and you’ll be able to come up to it again, have with you what you know now that you didn’t before.
But if the odds are in your favor and you’ve made the right choice, be glad, be thankful.. yet either way be happy :)
Because once those roads cross you are already aware of the possibilities, then comes the conclusion and for all you know it leaves a lesson. *u*
Attempted to make it sound ambiguous. As long as you can relate, I’m hoping those last two faces and captions left an inspiration and a positive mark with whatever thoughts that crossed your head. Cheers to us my loveliees *u*

Mom’s closet is like my treasure chest where I search for great or even vintage finds from time to time. Who would also thought I can share shoes with my ten year old little brother!! <3 This is one of those looks I’m always digging cos it’s so laid back yet hip *u*
When I was kid, I had fun drawing random images of two-storey houses, stick mans, blooming flowers, tall trees, twinkling stars, half moons, cloudy skies and mister shining sun. But I noticed that my works weren’t as good as my cousin’s and that they can draw cute chibi-like anime characters which I never figured out how to make. I did try to improve my skills.. Years after my little brother (who’s bigger than me now) would always have wasted writing pad papers scattered everywhere, with his unique drawing style penciled on it. I knew, just by looking at those sketches, that I didn’t receive that God-given talent.. and so I remained a frustrated artist.
“God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.” Our task is to know and develop them. Believe, it’s the reality of these gifts. I fell in love the moment I laid my hands on a camera, yes it was love yet I haven’t realized the real reason behind it. Maybe because I was becoming a teenager who was graduating from grade school and only considered camera as a medium for capturing moments for memories.
One of those photos that you wouldn’t want to post process anymore. The night light and pathway came along well together.
Wasn’t my shot, posting to show that pusoy dos is my favorite card game *u*
Lights, awesome subject forever. It’s where photographs revolve.
Cherry blossoooooooooom mah luv for u
Best wintermelon milk tea, Gong Cha! <3
Some of the best things in life have a price to pay, literally. same goes with the next five photos
Ever since I was a kid, crunch u da one <3 didn’t litter I picked that wrapper up!
pati gulong nalang hihihi love you all
Until I was introduced to tumblr, my dashboard was first filled with typographies and diaries. Then, with photographs of the most random yet beautiful subjects. After sometime I saw a picture of two filipina bloggers who happens to be bestfriends. Stalked both of them of course, so cute and quirky that contributed a lot to my interests now. Tricia G became the idol of my life. To me, she takes the most wonderful photographs and dresses the most fabulous cutesy clothes. Also, I got too inspired to enter the world of the bloggers.
I begged my parents for a dslr, those times when I borrowed my friends’ or relatives’ just to take “composed” photos and to explore its functions. Daddy has a passion for cameras too so he bought his own dslr! But to sum it up, his usage would only be a quarter and the 3/4 is by yours truly :))
Going back to me.. being a frustrated artist :)) I have accepted the sad fact that I’m not a good one, but happy to know that I found an alternative to “drawing” images through the use of light <3 I’m not saying that I’m good at this because I don’t even know what really are the basic rules of photography despite the efforts I put in trying to read some sources before. But I think that there’s so much freedom in photography that you won’t need the rules! Just the passion, eye, and camera *u*
This could probably be one of God’s gift to me and I’m gonna do my task through this blog’s new subcategory. “Snap, Shots and Camera Works” is where I will dump all my love for photographs. :’)
quite long :3 still, hearts everywhere!
Walking the streets of Manila like it’s Harajuku *u* If I can’t go to my favorite country then I might as well just dress up like I’m there! agreeeee? :3 okay just once in a while.. *o*
I think the thing about this style is that the clothes don’t perfectly come along together. Not as “harmonious” and it’s unusual, but when you get to match and pull it off? now congratulations that’s an achievement! :D You just made weird look cool! — as to how ate Izumi says it *u*
Too many out of focus pictures taken =)) we fail
From judgemental stares and criticisms coming from my own father.. oh whatever no one can stop meeeh :) I’m weird and I like being weird :>

Can you believe April’s almost ending? :( I have a month long vacation left and we haven’t gone to any beach ;____; My summer’s not wasted though at the same time not maximized.. have to plan for more trips to happen!
Btw I’m getting the hang of instagram lately!! I find it much more fun than before :D Been making my photos more instagram worthy hihi. Pliiiz follow @dollified thank youu *u*
Anyone here heard about this blog’s title? The asian guy who played Storm Shadow was my “bias” in G.I. Joe Retaliation! He might be too old for me (just, no haha) but this ninja in white on white costume proved how asians are a lot hotter compared to any other race….. IMHO ocakes!! *u*
It was a casual sunday quality time with my fambam when I suggested for us to watch the latest movie of the G.I. Joe series. I might have been the one to give the idea but I was just so sure that everyone would agree with me *u* Who wouldn’t? I only have brothers and my parents practically watch every type of movie available.
Distressed knitted cardi from Cheyser’s closet <3 the most friendly and down-to-earth blogger I’ve met *u* Looking forward for BU5 this summer! and tumblr meet-up too!! It’s happening here at south bound how can I not go!! Oh and guys pliiiz message me if you’re coming so we can see each other :D

Ate Yuki T. wears her glasses like it’s not even part of the outfit anymore because she can wear it with anything! She inspires me so much in this style!! Too bad I won’t even get to be at the campus of DLSU with her because she just graduated :<
These glasses do a great job in making up for no make up faces. I have nothing on my face aside from the staple moisturizer but it doesn’t look bare at all *u*

And the coast was clear.. I grew up loving action and sci-fi movies because of the “Infinite” feeling it gives me *u* It was only a few years ago when I was able to convince myself that superpowers weren’t real.. with a tid bit remaining that they are still. Btw remember when I told you guys last year that X-Men was my all time favorite? *u*
Instead of messaging me about my outfit posts, I highly recommend that you add a comment below instead and leave personal ones in my inbox, thank you and God bless! <3
