Model Off-Duty

Before you judge, i'm not a model nor a superstar.
Although I do wish of becoming one, 
sadly I don't have the looks nor the height.

But if ever there comes a day I'm given an opportunity
to be on print or media, then why not. 
Honestly, I'd even do it for free :)

Up until today, I am very grateful that I was able to 
somehow live the impossible dream. 

If you've been following my blog, 
then you would have read my post entitled Runway Dreams
wherein I got to model under Plains & Prints for the Glorietta Vibe event. 

That moment was indeed surreal. 
I pray that it's only the beginning of beautiful things to come.

If you share the same sentiments like I do, 
three words: Pursue Your Dreams.

In fact, aside from my runway gig, 
the closest I've had to achieving my dreams is my very own fashion blog. 
It's not perfect but someday I hope to get my own share of the spotlight. 

Now that you know my story, what better way 
to live the moment than to take cue from models themselves.

My 'model off duty' look will focus on white pieces.
I'd go for a white offshoulder top paired with jeans and white sneakers.
For a chic yet sweet look, caps will definitely be part of my ensemble.

Special mention to my good friend Hannah for this beautiful top.
I feel fresh and au naturel, just the way I wanted!

The Story of Us

Call us your Everyday Women.  
Like everyone else, we try to get by each day looking radiant and well-polished.

Juggling our time with four companies plus a fashion blog,
people would often ask my twin and I how we do it? 
It's not easy, but with the help of some "friends",
we manage to look young and vibrant despite all the stress,

In fact, my twin made an amazing testimonial on one of the
products we patronize and I attest to it :)

Bless us L'OCCITANE en Provence for we have sinned:
Mind you, you weren’t our one & only previously.
But 3 years ago, our forever started with you.
Before falling in love with you, my twin & I hated lotions & creams.
Oh you bet, we simply hated anything greasy, sticky and slimy!

Let’s face it:
Who would want to shake/hold hands with us when they’re greasy, right?!
Who would want to kiss us when our lips are all glossed up?
And who would dare put a ring on our finger when our hands look wrinkled & old for our age?

Beauty really is more than just skin deep.
It is an investment that we should continuously work on.
Our relationship with L'Occitane started when we noticed we weren’t getting any younger.
In fact, our mom was always compared to us, radiant & blooming as ever.

Yes, she passes as our sister!
And we knew she was doing something right to maintain her youthful glow.
“The fountain of youth---Blame it on L’Occitane,” she tells us.
And this is where our L’Occitane obsession basically started.

Photo taken from L'Occitane

Mom swears by Reine Blanche Illuminating Eye Care & Mask.
She’d say: “Thank God, I don’t look like a Panda anymore.”
Oh, thanks to mom, we’re obsessed with Almond Lighter Legs.
A long day of wearing heels has never felt this effortless, relaxing and refreshing.

Chapped lips, Dandruffs. And dark spots.
Ordinary problems that doesn’t go away easily.
But with L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand Cream, 
Anti-Dandruff Shampoo & Shea Butter Lip Balm Stick---Problem Solved!

It was certainly not a cheap investment but we knew it would be worth it.
With L’Occitane, our confidence was at its peak.
Oh, it did wonders to our skin.

Yes, our best beauty decision was the moment we switched to you L’Occitane!
heart emoticon

It's no secret that beautiful skin captivates.
If you love yourself, take care of your skin, and it will love you back.
Time to look like a demi-goddess and share the love :)

How about you, what's your skin food?

Summer Stripes

Hats out and time to let the summer heat sizzle.

A photo posted by Twinie Kaye Ng (@twiniekaye) on

Instead of wearing something colorful and laidback which you have already
seen in my previous posts (the default look for summer), 
I've decided to go black just to break that norm.

Black can still be worn for summer when 
paired with interesting patterns. I chose some frolic stripes to 
accentuate my look and keep the summer vibe alive.

Pair it with your best smile and you're all set.
Simple as that :)

Keep Cool and Eat Ice Cream

Nowadays, Manila is becoming like the busy streets of NYC. 
With today's fast-paced lifestyle, it's often difficult to find time 
to relax and unwind, but when we do, it has got to be worth it.

While going around the Metro, my twin and I found a cool hangout place that
can satisfy our cravings and at the same time put a smile on our face.

Call it a guilty pleasure, but Ice Cream would always be part of everyone's childhood;
And I'm glad that Mr. Lincoln Cheong, the man behind the new 
ice cream parlor Carousel Creameryunderstands that. 

If you look closely at this photo, you'll know how well-loved and in-demand this place is.

With more than 101 flavors to choose from, the 'kid' in you will be all giddy.
To help you out, I did a little chitchat with the owner himself and 
here are some revelations about Carousel Creamery:

Speculoos, Dark Side Chocolate and NY Cheesecake

(I'm lucky to actually have chosen a crowd favorite, as the very first flavor 
that I tried before getting to know Mr. Cheong was NY Cheesecake)
Verdict: melt in your mouth creamy goodness

S'mores, Chunky Cheese and Kitkat Milo Crunch

Rum Raisin or All Spice 'n Everything Nice

And if you're looking for more interesting flavors, why not try
Pinoy Beer & Chicharon, Bacon & Cheese ice cream, Baileys or 
perhaps Wasabi to tickle those tastebuds.
So many iconic flavors to choose from, what's not to love?

Not to mention, Carousel Creamery is not just pure ice cream; 
they offer more than that.

If you're looking for some caffeine-kick with the goodness of ice cream,
give their signature | ESPRESSO SHAKE | a shot.
2 Scoops of Ice Cream and a double shot of espresso,
topped with whipped cream and coffee beans.

My twin and I chose Salted Caramel as a flavor for our Espresso Shake.
Normally for drinks, we would share, but for this shake, no can do :)
One Word: Delicioso!

For our combo deal, we ordered  | CHEESE DOG | .
The Hotdog comes with a side of fries, Heinz ketchup and Mayo.
Simply perfect for chillout sessions with your barkada.

Just look at us dig-in.
If you personally know us, we eat like boys!
Petite girls but with Big Appetite (hence our body figure, lol)

Our Dessert Experience wouldn't be complete without these 2 sweet treats:
1 Scoop Vanilla Bean Ice Cream in between 2 brownies,
topped with warm homemade caramel sauce

Scoops of Dark Chocolate, Mocha Oreo and Rocky Road Ice Cream,
topped with Oreo cookies and wafer sticks

We could have shown you more IG worthy shots, 
however our tummies are about to explode. Will definitely be back! 

Here's a photo of us goofing around with sunnies just because it's summer :)

Irresistible Food (Melt in your mouth goodness),
 Great Music (Beats full of life), 
what's not to love?

Mind you though, this place easily gets full so you know what to do :)

Whether you're in a celebratory mood or have some matters of the heart to attend to,
 let Carousel Creamery be your beautiful distraction #wevegotyourflavor

Sail Away

Light and Easy.
Here's another fresh look for summer.

I'm wearing a Talla Beaded Neck Caftan dress from Zalora.
Zalora is an online shopping haven for all fashionistas.

This dress is pure sophistication; simple yet eyecatching.
I love how it resembles the color of the ocean, it makes me feel carefree.

Since I just wore this to stroll around the mall a few days ago,
I opted to wear my chic flats from Tomato for extra comfort.

You can easily change this look from day to night by 
simply changing your footwear. A strappy pair of heels would 
definitely be a stunner. Finish the look with a gold clutch for extra oomph.

Cool For The Summer

Hello my dear readers!
Ready for a summer to remember? :)

Whether you're packing for the beach or planning for a much needed getaway,
here are my top 3 style essentials for summer:

A comfortable pair of footwear like so

As a fashion blogger and entrepreneur,
both style and comfort are very important to me,
 and I'm glad Melissa understands that.

Melissa is an iconic footwear brand all the way from Brazil that
has collaborated with prominent designers such as
Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu and Karl Lagerfeld
to deliver worldclass designs that are both stylish and comfortable.

Another must bring is your favorite pair of polarized lenses.
For this look, I protect my eyes with sunnies from
 Eye Channel by JIT USA.

Now that I've got my two style staples covered, 
the final piece to complete my 'cool for the summer look'
is a backless chiffon dress by ROMWE.

When it comes to all things stylish,
 ROMWE remains to be one of my trusted global online-store brands.

This dress makes me standout as it exhibits a fun and carefree vibe,
just perfect for the summer heat. The pastel colors
 actually remind me of cotton candy and ice cream :)

If you're a fashionista like me, one thing I'll add to my 
"luggage" are a pair of heels. They just add oomph to any outfit.

I hate to admit it, but packing light is not really part of my lifestyle :)

What about you? What are your top 3 must bring this summer? :)
Hope you enjoyed my post. Stay tuned for more fashion inspiration.

Excited for my next look?
