Do’s and Don’t’s of a Photo Shoot

Last June 25, 2016, I got the chance to shoot with Mr. Denys Jan Lee of 1225 studios, and it was an absolute blast. It was my first photo shoot in a long time so I was really excited but also a bit nervous. Unlike my past shoots, I didn’t have as much time to prepare for this shoot since it was scheduled on such short notice. Nevertheless, I still tried my best to be ready for the day of my shoot.

Here’s a few do’s and don’t’s to make the best out of photo shoots: Continue reading

Summer Eve

PicsArt_08-31-12.48.50

I’m in the middle of a lake that’s covered with ice. I notice that the ice was starting to melt and it was getting pretty thin. I don’t even know how I got here. It’s like I just woke up and suddenly I was in the middle of that lake. I try to take a step but the ice cracks from the pressure, but I know I can’t just stay in place either.

I keep willing the ice to hold together, willing the cold to stay so the ice doesn’t break. I keep walking, searching for a place that’s safe, but all I see for miles and miles is the frozen lake.

I know at any moment I could fall through and drown.

A Memorable Day at Manila’s Trendetter’s Bazaar 2016

 

The Trendsetter’s Bazaar was bigger than ever last July 8-10. Aside from the trendy clothes, and make up, this time they also included a sneaker and gadget sale! For just Php 100, shoppers get the chance to grab items up to 70% off its normal prices. I’ve always wanted to go to the Trendsetter’s Bazaar because I know I’ll get really good items for really reasonable prices so I was delighted when Manila Bazaars asked me to go. Continue reading

Styles and Bites 2016: Food, Flair, Finds


According to their page, Styles and Bites is a “festival of finely curated flavors and fanciful finds for the metro’s pleasure-seeking foodies and shoppers.” Anyone who knows me knows that fashion and food are at the top of the things I love. Naturally, when I was asked by Manila Bazaars to go to the Styles and Bites bazaar last July 2, 2016, I said yes. For only a fee of Php 100, Styles and Bites can be “your urban escape to all things food and fashion.”

Book Review: In His Corner by Vina Arno

“Change is an understatement. Tame is more like it. To you, I’m a wild bull that needs taming. That’s what you’ve been doing all along.”

Blurb:
Work Out
No sex for almost a year could kill a guy, but when you’re the boxer known as the Juggernaut, it’s the price you pay for turning pro. Tommy’s fully dedicated to his craft, until he meets the incredibly gorgeous Dr. Siena Carr. Now he’s looking forward to taking on this prim and proper lady in a wet and wild work-out…

Knock Out
Siena has seen many patients come through the ER, but none as sexy as Tommy Raines. With a nasty cut over his eye, she knows he needs stitches, but after he takes off his shirt, she needs some air. With rock-hard abs and taut biceps, it’s clear this man takes care of his body. And all Siena can think about is letting him take care of hers…

From the beginning, the sexual tension between the two characters is clear. The only thing we are more sure of than them being attracted to one another is that they are complete opposites.  Can the macho guy and the sweet girl from two completely different backgrounds make it work?

Exploring Art: BGC

Bonifacio Global City Highstreet is filled with picturesque spots. The place is beautiful and surrounded with trees and art installations. When going exploring make sure you dress comfortably and weather appropriate. Wear comfy shoes because you’ll be doing a lot of walking. As for me, I went with sneakers. I always make sure an outfit is convertible. By that, I mean I should be able to adjust my outfit according to weather so that I am still comfortable. Continue reading

Exploring Art: Parkfest PH

 

Parkfest PH is a weekend festival in Nayong Pilipino park located beside the National Museum, featuring the fusion of local art, crafts, Filipino flavor and music with a colorful twist. This is the description on Parkfest PH‘s facebook page. This description however, pales in comparison to the experience I had when I went last May 29, 2016.

Parkfest PH aimed to revive Nayong Pilipino through showcasing the works of local artists, and it did just that last May 28-29. Nayong Pilipino, a once forgotten park, was filled with all sorts of people. People came in and bonded with their friends and family as they appreciated the art installations of the various artists, listened to music, shopped from the various crafters. This embodied the Nayong Pilipino of the past.

I went to Bloggers United 11 last May 28, 2016 at Green Sun, Makati. I was so excited for this bloggers bazaar that featured the country’s top fashion and beauty bloggers. It was a good way to celebrate the end of my school year. I got to shop, meet new bloggers, and meet some of my favorite bloggers. There were so many things that I loved about Bloggers United.

Blogapalooza 2016: Horizons: Charting the Uncharted

 

I attended Blogapalooza’s Horizons last May 21, 2016 at Centris Elements. This was my first blogger event and I was so excited. I spent a lot of time figuring out what to wear (check out my outfit details here), what to bring, and what to say when interacting with the different businesses and bloggers. I made sure that the first impression I was making  was a good one, but still true to myself. Continue reading
