Terranova sweater and shorts | VIntage Pony bag | Zara shoes from cousin
Neutrals are on my sweater, shorts, bag and even on the background! Coincidence? No! I like this color a lot when it comes to clothing. I know I’ve said this but this vintage bag is my most favourite hand me down from mommy ever!!! For this outfit, I have always imagined wearing these pieces together and finally, I have *u*
Aside from it being our fun family day (going to church for mass, having dinner outside and watching the latest movies, in this case is Catching Fire!), Sundays allow me to dress up and shoot with my brother/mom/dad. Although I get to dress myself up almost everyday since college, it’s the only time I have to bring and use this camera. TGFS!!! (Thank God for Sundays)
What do you think of this look? I hope you don’t mind but you can message it to me! <3
S&H Shoes | Three Wishes Dress
Hey guys! This is one of those outfits I’m most happy with *u* It really does show my favorite personal style and it keeps me bubbly and confident when I wear it <3 So in love with the pastel colors, ribbons and dress! Kawaiiii <3 But my face looks mataray :( :(
So I was invited again by my blogger/shooting buddy, Kat A., to Freego’s fashion show held inside Mall of Asia (near muji and french baker) *u* As I said before, my goal is to at least watch one show every season to keep me updated! Someday, I hope I can work or be part of PhFW, no need to be a model because that won’t be possible since I’m too small for it.. but working with the stylists, photographers or other crews will do! That’s enough to make me fulfilled *u*
View the whole photo set! I only brought my 50mm lens with me because I had to bring it at school too and the seats weren’t elevated thus there are heads present on the pictures. But still I’m satisfied with the photos :”D
Just some food photography I did a few months back :) First two restaurants were Toki and Sumo Sam, both Japanese! (my personal fave after Filipino food!) *craves for jap food ;__;* I recommend these two because they serve food which are of good taste and quality :D The last one or the dessert cake was from Bizu! That place has an adorable ambiance!! hihi *u* *
On another note… I’m always itching to shoot huhuhu. I hope we get to buy a tripod (self-shoot) because ours was broken 2 years ago ;__;
Happy sunday to you my lovelies! and have a great week ahead! God bless us all <3
ANIMO LA SALLE!!! Months ago I would have never imagined myself cheering this whole-heartedly. But here I am loving my college girl life in DLSU <3 I’m thankful to have decided to choose and study here other than the other big four *u* I would never have this appreciation for my school, these down to earth friends and this fat japanese guy who makes me happy every single day ever since I entered this university. I just hope that DLSU will help me challenge myself to reach my full potential, all for my future *u*
NEVER SHALL WE FAIL! Final game for the season today! As I’m writing this, I don’t know who will win yet. Win or lose my university will never fail! *u* I learned that DLSU students aren’t the stereotyped “mayayabang na mayayaman lang” but see even in the finals we accepted our loss in the first game and didn’t fight the opponent’s bashing and disrespect upon winning the second game.
On another note, this is the first photoshoot I had with my new baby lens!! <3 So lucky to have found time to shoot with my favorite shooting buddy ever since high school *u* My super creative friend Kat also made posters/wallpapers for today’s game! Check them out *u*
Style Shop Manila Dungaree | Gyaru Shoppe Usamimi | DC Shoes
Truth is I love wearing these shoes almost all the time. Its color combination happens to help me feel jollier when I walk, lol really! Plus it’s so comfy <3 But my title talks about a different shoe brand! I want my first pair of le bunny bleu cutesy shoes :( Probably an oxfords? :3
One of my favorite comebacks this year would be these dungarees! I can even wear these to school yay!!! It’s very versatile when choosing what I’ll match with it and I can use it as a skirt *u*
Hope you like this look! <3 Next time I’ll try styling this dungaree way differently to make a whole different look *u*
Ferosh Manila Midriff Top | Thrifted Skirt | Brother’s Chuck Taylor
I just found out that I accidentally deleted this post for whatever reason! I don’t remember what I wrote here anymore :(
Oh how is everyone doing? *u* Me.. In contrast to the post before this, I’m trying my best to cope up and stop my pessimism from hindering me to do my very best! <3 I think that’s the right way to it! Never ever be the one to let yourself down! Instead be your number one fan (but don’t be a narcissist hehehe) God bless us all lovelieees *u*

Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers right now, Zoe Suen.
That was five photographs of me battling with my hair. Just one of the current battles I’m in lol. Forgive me for not keeping this blog alive, it’s my birth month along with term end. But it’s my fault that I have two photo shoots not posted yet. I hate my post-processing skills. The first thing that comes up to my mind when I’m about to start editing is that I’m never good enough at this.
But all together I’m facing low self-esteem in particular. I see myself as part of everything mediocre. I don’t know where I can be a “pro” or at least something I’m reallyyyy good at. That mere fact stops me from having a specific goal. All I know is that I want to be in the field of business when I’m already working.. but what business? and what else will I be doing aside from that business? I also want to be in the fashion industry or maybe photography too.. but that’s just too broad to be a goal.
I’m still finding my inspiration, maybe with that my “specific” goal would come too.
I did not allow my own calculation to determine what my GPA was (thus waited for la salle’s site’s). For three straight days, fear and nervousness filled my whole body. Grades are given differently in college because I check which course grades are out from time to time. That’s just more intense than said! SWEARBEAR!!! ;__;
At first I only aimed for a GPA of three, second honor dean’s list. The sudden appearance of 4 in lbybus heightened everything (when my prof said I can only get a grade ranging from 2 - 2.5, whaat so i did my best in our exam and got a 92/100, highest in our class <3). I then calculated what must be done to get it to 3.400 and set goals such as accounting 3 for accounting, 4 for filkomu, 4 for fitwell and 2.5 for scimatc.
On consultation day, I was under PMS I went to school at 8:00 am to ask my accounting teacher what made me get a 2.5 in her subject when every consultation time she lets me know I’m always 3.5. For the first time ever, I asked a prof what we can do to make it a 3. But all my quizzes and other components are already 100 (with some help of plus points that are given to everyone of course) She says she has done all, I wanted to recheck my departmental exam but she says there’s nothing wrong with it (I hope she gave me a chance though) My grade was 90 and 1 point higher would make it a 3. I was so pissed with how the grading system was especially in accounting, in other subjects a grade of 90 was already a 3.5. There are pros and cons of this grading system and I sure wish we had .25 and .75. Since I was under PMS, this prompted me to act rude that morning and I was very disappointed with myself an hour after because I know, I should have not blamed my prof or the accounting department. I should have kept everything to myself and not complain. At least I know now, I should not. I should stay calm everytime.
I went to our inthrop teacher who gave me a 3 and after consulting, my grade was now quatro. As soon as I stood up, I can’t help but burst out crying and become a rudolf *red nose*. Tak told me to stop because people might think that I failed haha. That quatro was enough if I don’t get a 4 in filkomu anymore. I was so — thankful. I then went to scimatc where I got a 1.5!!! Only because I wasn’t able to submit a paper I did already. I answered it again, thankful to my prof for giving us chances.
I went to fitwell after to take my finals. I was so glad and lucky to find our prof in a good mood that she gave me a 4 (even with a few mistakes, didn’t get to practice before performing our aerobics). I rushed to the building in front for filkomu but our prof wasn’t there anymore. I tried to go at their faculty so we got to talk. I wasn’t able to submit 3 papers to her because I had to make the documentation for my group and…. ok nakatamad pls. but I CAN’T BELIEVE I DIDN’T DO IT! IT’S THE FIRST TIME I DID SUCH THING!!! 2 analysis and 1 activity. I did this all the night before with full effort already but she was even sorry that she can’t accept it because she finalized the grades and it’s not her fault anyway. She was so nice I can’t say anything anymore and just said sorry as well. But remember the 4 in inthrop? It was okay! *u*
At last, I submitted my activity in scimatc and got a 2.5!!! ALL IS WELL NOW. I’m a first honor dean’s lister of BS - Entrepreneurship. My assumed calculation was right (seen below). Lots of my batchmates are dean’s listers as well, mostly from Liberal Arts (no CLA discrimination here pls because I’m proud of all of us!!! <3) one from CHED and I haven’t heard anything from the Engineerings, Sciences and Businesses (aside from me).
In that one day I went through a lot and learned a lot. I understood that I should remain humble in times of pressure. I learned that it is possible to get what was just a chance. I learned that not everything will actually go the way you want it but surprises may get in the way too. I learned that every requirement should be done before the deadline (duh? :<)Oh but after all I’m still a morning crammer hehe. I once asked myself why am I not achieving anything yet, not an officer, active member of an org or what. Maybe this is the reason, also the reason why after passing UP, Ateneo and UST too I am at La Salle. I prayed thrice in the chapel, asking strength before every *moment of truth*. I thank the Lord for giving me this. I thank the profs who were very kind and sorry to my accounting prof.. and I thank Tak, for supporting and staying with me the whole time. This is now another reason why I should give my full force in the next terms. To Mommy and Daddy, your one and only princess says this is for you. <3
sorry for the long post!!!! and thank you if you were able to read everything >:”D< this is also the reason why I haven’t posted last weekend. btw my birthday has passed and it was happyyy!! I celebrated with Tak and my family (separated) *u*
