Not Enough Whites

Raise your hands if half of your closet's filled with white clothes, too! There you go! High five cos I feel you - to the point where my mom would stop me from picking white stuff while shopping. Hahaha! Can't stop, won't stop! :p

Same thing happened during the SM Ladies' Night. I hoarded too much whites and I'm definitely not complaining! ❤ This particular top's one of those, and I love how it perfectly went well with this structured skirt - also courtesy of SM Woman. So nice!

10 Years of Make Your Own Havaianas

10 blissful years of Make Your Own Havaianas! This year, the world's leading flip-flop brand kicked off its 10th year with an exclusive vintage Hawaiian luau to pay homage to its inspiration. So lucky to get first dibs from this year's limited edition pins and styles! It's my second year with the MYOH team! ❤❤❤

I think I spent like 5 minutes picking my strap, sole and pins! Initially, I wanted to get the commemorative pair, but Arnie being Arnie (the minimalist!) opted for the sexy black slim and rose gold strap!

Take your pick! I chose the Pineapple, Surf and my "A" plated initial. :) Wish I showered my pair with all these pala! They're all so cute, right?

"It was in 2006 when this concept was introduced to the local market. And while Make Your Own Havaianas is being experienced in different countries around the globe, it is only in the Philippines that it has grown so big that we needed to do it nationwide -  simultaneously to accommodate the Havaianaticos in the country," says Anne Gonzalez, Managing Director of Havaianas Philippines. Havaianas occupies a special place in the hearts (and feet) of Filipinos, hence the special personalization treat!

Huge smiles with the MYOH 2015 team! Thanks for helping me build my pretty pair! :)

All set and ready for another summer escapade with my new Havaianas pair! I totally love it!

Happy 10 years, Make Your Own Havaianas! Thanks for always having me! Had so much fun! See you again next year! ❤❤❤

Summer Blues

Oh man... I can stare at this view forever! My entire being's longing for a good getaway and I need it as soon as possible. Instead of swimming at the beach, I'm drowning with work. Not complaining though! I love my job! :) There might be times when I feel exhausted (in all levels!!!), but nothing beats self-assurance and satisfaction when you see the bosses and clients happy with your work. Our company also allows me to fly and fulfill my passion, that's why I'm still here - blogging plus chasing my dreams. :)

It's just midweek but things have been tough. So I'm blogging about our recent Camaya Coast trip instead to calm my senses. I love summer! ❤

The scorching heat and insane work days would make you want to run to the beach the soonest you can. If you're not a fan of long drives, Camaya Coast offers cruises from Manila to their resort. Hassle-free! :)

Boarded the cruise ship docked at the PICC Port near Sofitel around 10:00AM. Ride was around 1.5 hours - big difference from the usual drive of 4-5 hours. :)

Similar with flights, there are safety measures that you have to follow (with attendants to demonstrate how to wear your life jackets, etc.) and they offer meals on-board.

If you're the type who enjoys swimming, water sports activities and the pristine view of the beach - then you can try it out at Camaya Coast! We went there on a Saturday but it wasn't crowded. The resort's well-maintained, super clean, peaceful and very beautiful! ❤

Will I go back to Camaya Coast? Yes! And I'll make sure to extend our stay! ❤ How about you? Where's your favorite beach resort located? I'd love to check that out!

Oh Snap!

Honestly, I'm quite uncomfortable with posting too much on my blog or my social networking sites now that some parts in our country's in a difficult situation due to Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). It's been a week since the tragedy and thousands of Filipinos are grieving for the death of their loved ones and the destruction of their homes. Life goes on for us/the rest, but definitely, deep within us, we lament and care wholeheartedly for our kababayans.

I'm probably at the Holiday Bazaar 2013 (happening at Metrotent Ortigas til Sunday) as you read this post. Like in my previous bazaar stints, I'm selling my clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, etc. there for as low as P50.00. But this time (and the one during last weekend's BFAS), I'm donating my proceeds to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda via World Vision Philippines. Instead of giving my old stuff to institutions, I think the organizations know what's best to provide - bottled water, milk for the babies/kids, food and more, so we can trust them with our bucks. As what I've said before, let's help in every way we can! No doubt, the Philippines will recover. Never lose hope!

Here's what I wore to the second day of Bazaar For All Season last November 10. Opted for something cozy but still fashionable, embracing my usual Sunday vibes.

How do you find these cute stars on my shorts? :) Indie-go Boutique has more designs (which are crazily affordable) for distressed denim shorts so make sure to drop by their website!

STANCE Sneakers courtesy of World Balance

Raid My Closet babies are aware of how dainty I am when it comes to my fashion choices. Bet you guys rarely see me in sneakers! So whenever I sport a pair, I must've really fell in love with them to trade over pumps or stilettos ♥ These kicks from World Balance would be a great example! Very comfy and stylish at the same time!

I'll be giving away a pair of World Balance shoes very soon so stay tuned for that! ;) For now, make sure to follow the brand on their social networking sites: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

I finally have a new babyyy ♥ Big thanks to Paul and Fujifilm Instax for this! Been wanting to get my hands on an Instax Mini 8 and I'm glad I now have it!! :D

Nothing beats having your photos and good memories printed! ♥

Encouraging everyone to drop by the Holiday Bazaar 2013 this weekend, November 16 to 17, at Metrotent, Metrowalk Ortigas! Visit my booth and raid my closet from 1PM til 12 Midnight! See you there, loveys! xx

Pizza Party at Yellow Cab Mezza

One big love! ❤ I've been acting as the social media babe of Yellow Cab Pizza Co. for more than a year now (and a fan of New York's Finest + Charlie Chan since 2009!). :p When I got to know the brand deeper, I fell in love with them even more! Aside from their delicious and generous offers, they bring families and friends closer to each other. Celebrations, good times - all these happen in one roof! That's why I got so giddy when we scheduled this event, because we're celebrating a new store opening with our trusted bloggers and cutest followers! :)

With a bigger and better store, Yellow Cab relaunched its newly-renovated branch at Mezza Residences. Guests started to flock by 11AM, just in time for the renowned Man vs. Pizza!

Among these 5 participants, first to finish the 18" Pepperoni Friday pizza wins a 6-month supply of Yellow Cab treats! Wild wild wild!!! Guess who won!

Hello from me, Michael, Ava, Trice and Seph! Ready to make you the best pizzas in town! :p

Had a filling and fun lunch with our readers! Heartfelt thanks to everyone who dropped by! We really appreciate your presence! Hope you had fun! :)

 Of course, I wouldn't survive all the Yellow Cab hurrah without my baeFF! Yhe the bombbb!

Definitely looking forward to the next one! Hope YOU could join us soon! ❤❤❤
