It is soooooo hot! Summer has landed! Time to keep those jackets in a box and bring out all the shorts and tank tops. I love summer as much as I love the rainy season. During summer I get to wear those tank tops and shorts the way they are supposed to be worn without feeling cold. No layers to hide ’em!
It’s time to hit the beach or the pool, whichever you choose. Another thing that I love about summer is that I get to ride boats going fabulous beaches where you can just slow down, think about nothing and relax underneath the sun or walk around the shoreline with just the moon and stars as your guide. An advantage of living in a tropical country, you can never run out of beaches to go to! So, since, I’ve been itching to leave and take a break, I thought I’d welcome summer with a navy-inspired outfit.
I can’t take my mind of the road trip, the wind, the sea, the sand and all that jazz. I can’t wait!!! Vacations are sort of an escape. More than the family vacation, I’m thinking of trying to travel alone this summer. I’ve never done that…Maybe, this year is the year to do it.
Just pack-up and go!

This past week, I met up with my old officemates and I must say, one thing I miss about working in retail (more than the free clothes) is wearing power outfits. Since, I left, my style changed because of my current job and just a whole lot of changes in my environment as well. There are just times when I miss the style side of the corporate world or just the plain and different attitude you have when you power dress.
I don’t know but masculine outfits really look sophisticated and sexy on a woman. Sorry for the bias, men. Haha. But don’t you just agree? It brings out an aggressive and confident attitude that says, “I mean business.” And sometimes, or well, more often than not, in the corporate world, you kind of need that confidence to be able to step up and be noticed.
I really want that white, tailored suit that they wear on the red carpet. It’s just hard to find one and well, wear it here on a normal day. I guess this is just a step closer in quenching that frustration of mine.
I had a great time seeing the world that I left behind. I felt no regrets at all. I just miss the people I used to work with. They’ve evolve into my friends. Well, not all. But you know what I mean. I hope we get to hang-out and just catch up more often.

This photo was taken by Elyoo last month. It was a random favor for a friend. Anyway, I really like the photo, hence, the post. Nothing much to say here, just that maybe, I realized that I was actually conscious that someone was taking my photo in front of strangers.
Oh, this was also the day that we discovered that a hamburger food chain’s burger was not made from 100% beef. Hahhahahahaha!

YOU!!! Baby!!!! Hahahaha!!! And so the consequences of the resignation have started. Sorry for being gone for more than a month! I have been adjusting to the new lifestyle and the lack of some things. Hehe.
And since I cannot shop until December comes… Let me frustrate you as well. I drool over the things I stumble upon the internet.
Websites are evil temptations! Haha!
The big project is over! Before I write about the luscious buffet I had last Friday, I’d just like to congratulate AP 24.07 for the release of Manghuhula. Also, thank you thank you for all those who supported us! 🙂
Anyway, I was invited to binge out on one of the biggest buffets here in Manila– Spiral Buffet at Sofitel. What to wear on such a delightful occassion?
1. Black: So you’ll always look thin even if you are sooo full. Hahah
2. For all the ladies out there, an A-line top or an empire one, to hide that bulging tummy when you’ve eaten almost everything the buffet has to offer. Hahaha!
I really, really loved the food at Spiral, Sofitel. What’s more is that I binged with my 2 great friends! The drive was worth it! I have never eaten that much since forver! And the dessert bar was just to die for!
Anyway, enough with the foodie. Hehe. I discovered a store (that’s apparently been here awhile already) called Tango. It’s a local store here in Manila that has 3 branches in Metro Manila. Anyway, their stuff is really, really great and with reasonable prices. I debuted it at the Spiral Buffet. Hehe. They don’t have a website just yet, though.
Oh, and Annie, I really, really, really love this clutch that you gave me!!!! 😀
Wee!!!! I’m back from the hectic world called work. Haha!

Annie’s my all-time bestfriend! We practically shared every moment together since we were babies. She left for Abu Dhabi last year and she’s here for the next 3 weeks. I miss her sooo much!!! I can’t wait to go out, talk for hours and just catch up.
Wait for the gimmick pics. Hahahahaha!
She’s back and she brought a whole lotta presents! And one of those were one of my pasalubongs. Hehe.
As an answer to this post (The Fashion Must-Have), Annie bought me this:
She couldn’t find the ones that I posted but!!! I LOVE THIS ANYWAY!
Thanks Annie!!! Can’t wait to use it! We shall go out!!! This is turning out to be one hell of a great month!
XOXO! Love ya Annie!
Yep! I’m back! I’ve been trying to rest the past few days and the sick version of me isn’t at all fabulous (hehe), so, I decided: No photos. Hahahaha. Oh, the vanity!
Anyway!!!! I finally wore my Juan booties! I wore this to Chikka’s Movie Fund Raising Blocked Showing of Transformers. Great great movie by the way!
* While everything around me is a blur, I try to keep myself clear *
* Everything is moving too fast. The world is spinning out of control. *
* And I try to stand still as I hold my place–not wanting to fade away. *
Been having one hell of a week! Gahd. The effort.
