A Beautiful Disaster

If you've already watched Crazy Beautiful You , a Filipino movie
starring the country's top love-team Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo,
then you'll get what my blog title is about :)



Anyways, it's actually a very nice movie. So if you're looking to get all kilig,
this is the perfect movie to enjoy with friends and/ or lovers :)

In the movie, I noticed that Jackie aka Kathryn Bernardo wore lots of crop tops and 
with abs like those, what's not to flaunt; she indeed looks fab! :) 


So I thought of challenging myself to recreate her look with my own version.
(of course, minus the abs! )

For her fans out there, here's one way of sporting the "Jackie" look.



When wearing crop tops, the simple the look, the better.
Shorts, skirts and pants can all be paired with it.

I chose the latter because it elongates my legs.


My classic crop top is from Clothes Buffet Manila.
I just love how it looks at the back.


In any OOTD you're sporting, always remember to have fun.


I hope you enjoyed this post. 

Always remember that love is a very powerful force; 
the type that can heal any kind of pain.

Hopefully one day, we can all be that beautiful disaster.

Nobu

If you're looking for a place with great ambiance then head to Nobu Hotel, City of Dreams.



Experience posh upscale Japanese dining at Nobu.
 They have an indoor and outdoor setup to your delight.
 It's also a perfect date place for couples out there and a classy place to propose <3






Here's what we ordered for dinner for our Post-birthday celebration :)

Salmon

Rock Shrimp Tempura

Scallops

Black Cod Miso (Alaska)
A Signature Dish by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa
Certainly a must try! In fact, we ordered 2. It was that good! :)

 Yaki Tenderloin

Paella

This is actually our second time to visit City of Dreams.
The first time we went, we dined at Erwin's Gastrobar. 
This time around, Nobu captured our palate.
 This gold sequin dress I'm wearing is perfect for tonight :)

Can't wait for our next food adventure at City of Dreams. So many to try!


I am out of words for this place! 


Simply breathtaking!


All praise to Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and a big congratulations to 
Celebrity Actor Robert De Niro for co-founding Nobu.

Do checkout Nobu Hotel, I highly recommend it :)

Laid-Back New York

We all have those days when we are a little bit lazy to dress up,
but that doesn't mean, we have to sacrifice style.

Tee from Cebu
Skirt from Hotkiss

Wearing a simple tee as such can look chic when worn with heels.


And of course, an eye-catching label will do the trick.


Going casual should never be boring.


Remember that comfort and style can always go hand in hand.
Hope you enjoyed my version of a laid-back yet fashion forward look.


Love,

Belle of the Ball


The month of love has finally arrived and what better way to welcome it
than to relive one of the greatest love stories ever told. 


 Watched Beauty and the Beast, the Broadway Musical at CCP! 
Simply a musical treat for any kid at heart.

Of course, being a fashion blogger & stylist, I decided to get creative and dress the part.
I chose an off-shoulder velvet dress with gold knit embellishments for 
that sweet romantic look. Accessorize with an elegant headpiece and voila!


This lovely bodycon dress is from one of my favorite online shops, ROMWE.
I swear, if you're a fashionista like me, you'll be fascinated with their clothes :)


With Prom Season just around the corner,
one tip for every Bella out there is to know your style.


Whether you prefer to wear couture or just a simple RTW, 


trends may often times be overpowering, 
so choose a design that still speaks about who you are.

Don't overdo dressing-up just to comply with the theme :)
Be the Belle of the Ball in your own comfortable way.


Another tip to remember is to take care of your skin.
It may sound obvious but most girls experience breakouts just days before prom
after juggling both schoolwork and prom planning. 


Find the time to relax, enjoy "Me-Time" and of course moisturize.
With the help of some beauty tricks and the right amount of coverage, you'll look fab.

Always equip yourself with confidence and a sweet smile :)


And remember to enjoy and thank everyone who made your day special :)
If you're still looking for prom/party dresses, I recommend that you check


Stay fabulous my dear readers! <3
