Hello! I would like to share to you what I wore on my special day, my moving up day, My Graduation Day!
I know it's been 5 months since that day but I just want to tell you what I've been through to find what to wear.
In the following months, some of you will graduate from college, apply in the company you've been eyeing on, get hired, earn money, meet someone, get married, have kids, and just live happily ever after. Too fast, I know.hahaha
But before all those things take place, you first have to choose and find that perfect outfit. The struggle is real, believe me. I've been to places, shops, malls, boutiques, etc just to spot the right one.
I wasn't choosy or finicky. I just want to look elegant and beautiful on that day. This dress I wote wasn't my first choice. Actually, Greenhills was the last place in my mind where I would go looking for my graduation dress. When I went there, I got swamped with thousands of dresses, all ready to go up the stage. I walked around with my cousins and I came across this dress. I loved it the moment I layed my eyes on it. I love the cut, the print, the color, everything! So I purchased it right away. But I did purchase a few more so I had a lot to choose from.

I paired this lovely dress with Parisian because I love Parisian shoes. It just made the dress formal and fit for the event. And then that morning, my mom surprise me with a set of gold earrings, necklace, and bracelet. Oh how perfect, right?! She told me they would bring out a pulsing aura, and they sure did!
For the finishing touch, I just put on light day makeup from Maybelline. It channeled the youth-going-to-grownup-world in me plus it made my me simple yet elegant.


1. Go for cuts that will highlight or accentuate your body type.
2. Choose the color which is right for your skin.
3. Don't or Never go for super short dresses. You'll either look like a "you know" or like your going to a party.
4. Minimal accessories.
5. Go easy on the makeup.

I hope I was able to help you in choosing your future grad dress.
Good luck and Congratulations in advance!

Dark Times

Yah, I know what you're thinking. I know my entry today's a bit dark (or even Darker). If you know me, you'll say that this is not me because I'm always smiling in my posts, always bubbly, laughing, and just about anything light and happy. But if you really know me well, you'll figure out why I'm like this. Ever felt, even once in your life, like the whole world's against you? Problems, trials, school, work, haters, responsibilities, time, fate, health, etc.
How does it feel feeling all of those? Some might just explode and...Oblivion. But not me. I was born not a fighter but to be a fighter. There will be times that life will exhaust and wear you out but you should never give in. People will give you a tough time but who are they to dictate you and tell you who you are, right? Just be you. I know it's hard but just be you. You can never please everyone. Hate your job? Think of the thousands of people who wish they have one or are looking for one. Tired to go to school? Look at those street children hoping to enter a class. Hate having a lot of time and doing nothing? Think of those who are fihting just to live one more day. Problems and trials? Don't think about them because they'll never go out of stock. Issues on shortage of love life? Don't find it. It'll come at the right time.

You may have lost the battle today but you will win the war.

Just enjoy what you have and be thankful for that! It's not everyday you're given that opportunity. 
Want to be heard? Speak.
Want to be seen? Appear.
Want to be respected? Respect.
Want to be successful? Strive harder.
Want to be happy? Smile.
Want to be loved? Love.
Want to be blessed? Pray.

Hi! I know it's been a looooooooong time since I haven't updated or posted anything in here. I do apologize, my dear readers. But no more fuzz because I'm back! :)
How are you? Great? Good! Coz I'm AWESOME!

I've just started working, well actually I've been working for 2 months now (Exactly 2 months). I'm pretty sure that's the reason why I wasn't able to update my blog. Work is great plus my cool workmates at boss.
I missed blogging!!!!
So here goes my entry.

Ever wondered why some were genetically-gifted persons while others aren't? I'm not leading to something bad or offensive, okay? I mean, some can just eat and eat and not gain even a single microgram. On the other hand, I take a bit of pizza then there goes my weight shooting upwards. Yah, I know the feeling. But you know what, I'm training myself to always look at the good side of things. I know that staying in shape is really tiresome when your body isn't designed to be that way but why bother? You just have to learn to love yourself and the rest will fall to their rightful places. Love your curves and all your edges because no one wants a stick, right? You don't need those silly thigh gaps. Smile because you'll never know who falls in love with it everyday. Live because YOLO! And the important thing of all, be Proud of yourself because no one can do your job in this world but You.

          "A dream is a wish your heart makes." We often hear this in the ever famous Cinderella movie from Disney. If you know me well, you know how I love Disney Classics. That's why this look is totally inspired by that movie. In the movie, Cinderella didn't really ask for a prince. She only wanted to go to the ball and have fun until midnight. But how did she do it? How did the prince notice her? Simple! She went there in a fabulous dress, glass slippers, and a radiating aura.

Well, I found my prince in my Junior-Senior Prom 5 years ago. I also wore a fab dress, silver shoes, and a dazzling aura. Yah, almost like a Cinderella story, right?

I'm gonna give you a few tips on how to make your crush Notice You.

*Small Talks
          I know it's very hard to talk to your crush but you gotta do something. "Small Talks" is the best first move you can do. Ask about how he's doing today, about his hobbies, and a bit about himself.

          "Hey, have you seen the new Avengers movie? They told me it was awesome!"

          Research or know just a wee bit about his sports or his favorite sports so whenever he talks about them, you can relate and give your opinion about how the game sucked. :)

*Excel in your chosen career
          Need I say more?

*Wear his favorite color so you'll match his eyes
          Ask his friends about his fave color or if you're brave enough, go ask him yourself. Just remember not to over do you outfit or else, you'll look a bit tacky.

          Nothing beats the all-time SIMPLICITY is BEAUTY. Don't try to be someone else just so he'll notice you. Go bare faced, basic white tee and denim, and wear that smile.

                   Always remember to put on your Glass Slippers wherever you go. He'll notice you even if you're just wearing your kicks. Good Luck!

Black is the New Black

          What comes out of your mind when you hear the word BLACK? Boring? Dark? Grief? Dull? Yah, those, too, were the things that comes out of my mind. Well, let's try to change that.

I've never been a big fan of Black until now. I always thought of black as being too black. Hahaha I know black is already black. Silly me. But when I tried some outfits, I started to love it.

Black is seductive and sexy but can be cute and cuddly at the same time. It depends on how you style and wear it. Like this outfit, it could be worn at lunch out with friends, kids birthday parties, coffee with your bff, dinner date with your partner, or late night bar hopping with your girls. See, black is very versatile. It doesn't always mean corporate or fancy. Remember, it will always depend on how you style and wear it.
