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

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.

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

Modelo Primero


Modeling has been a dream of mine since I was a young girl. This dream probably stemmed from my mom being a model when she was a teenager. She would tell me stories about her modeling days, how fun fashion shows were, and how she even got to keep some of the clothes and shoes she modeled. She also joined Bb. Pilipinas (Ms. Philippines), and got into the top 20. She was also in several TV commercials when she was younger.

When I was younger, I was very outgoing and confident. I lost this when I went into high school, and so I never found the confidence and motivation to further pursue modeling. Then one summer, my mom decided to enroll me in a modeling and personality development workshop. Continue reading

Dress to Express

It’s summer time in the Philippines and things are starting to heat up, which makes this the perfect time to wear a crop top. Although the weather has never actually stopped me from wearing what I want to wear before. Come to think of it, nothing has ever stopped me from wearing what I want to. Especially, not what society says. Girls and guys alike, be proud of your bodies, but know that it’s not all you have to offer. Let’s stop all forms of body shaming.
