2011 Roll Call

I will forever be thankful to the Lord for showering me with beautiful blessings and opportunities in 2011. Along with bidding goodbye to the awesome year, let me share to you a roll call of events and people that have been very significant to me and to my humble blog. *_*

1. My venture into freelance modelling (which started last 2010)

2. My life as a student which became extra special and colorful when I was reigned as the Bb. Pamantasan 2011 and Ms. Aficionado 2011

3. Lastly, the various lucky chances that I've got in the blogging world, especially meeting new people that share the same passion as mine.

I'm so much ready to welcome 2012!!!! Let's get it on! ☺

Never Giving Up

...on animal prints, obviously. :D Yesterday, by far, was one of the longest days I've had in my life. Went to the mall for random commitments, meet-up and shopping in the afternoon, then headed to Tides for a night out with my high school friends. This is what I love about vacations!! ☺ Anyway, here's what I wore to my hectic but awesome Wednesday!

My Mom took my outfit photos and I'm so happy that she's improving! Hihi thank you, Mommy dear!

On me: animal print top from The Ramp | pink bandage skirt from The Ramp | Steve Madden nude pumps | bag from Aldo | Aldo gold watch | Pop Culture bangle

Forgive my awkward "to-smile-or-not-to-smile" face here! :p

Got so in loved with this tassel necklace from Simone's Closet! Thank you to my blogger sister, Denise, for sending this! Miss you so much!

Mom and I were about to enter the mall again after taking some outfit shots but then she spotted this area and insisted me to strike another pose here. Lol she's really that supportive... and cute!

I gave my Mom a treat at Tacobell since she's been craving for quesadillas and churros. We also had a quick bite of pastries from Chewy Junior while waiting for my Fab Manila giveaway winner. 

Ordered yummy cookies and cream chewy puffs for my giveaway winner, Marie Castro. So aside from her Fab Manila prizes, she also got a mini sweet treat! *_*

I recognized Marie Castro right away because I've met her during the Bloggers United 2. Love that her tweets to me were so nice and sweet! She's a student from DLSU, by the way. Marie, if you're reading this, it was so nice to see you again! Congratulations and enjoy your prizes! Happy holidays!! ☺

I was supposed to meet up with the other winner of my Fab Manila giveaway but she's in Cavite right now, so I decided to just have her prizes shipped. Sayang, I want to meet more blog readers pa man din. Soon, soon!!! *_*

Hope everyone's making the most out of the remaining days for 2011! What have you been up to this holiday season? Let me know, loveys! xx

Sheer and Fringes

I reserved my pullovers and cardigans before December because I really knew it would be cold this month. But lo and behold with the bipolar weather! It was extremely sunny these past few days (not complaining, though) so I decided to be on this comfortable ensemble.

I could no longer wait for summer to wear this top from Style Hub! Thank God for times like this! Thank you also to Style Hub! ☺

On me: black sheer sleeveless top with fringes from Style Hub | Mango white shorts | black bandeau from Bench

I was thinking to do a messy bun for my hair with this outfit but I suddenly felt too exposed already. So ganito na lang muna! :p

Details of the top! Don't you just love it??

Accessories: turquoise bangle from Pop Culture | pearl stacked bracelets from Forever 21 | yellow bag from Singapore

Finally wore my new Filgiarina gold sequined peep toes! I swear I can sense that this pair will be overused! *_*

What can you say about this look? Please let me know! Happy holidays, loveys!! xx
