Go Graphic


If there's one color combination that every girl should have in her closet,
it should be none other than black and white.


This color palette is universally flattering as it suits any body type.
Well-loved by celebrities, B&W is the secret to being fashion forward.


Another trick to look effortlessly chic in a black and white dress is
to choose graphic prints and monochromatic patterns.


Always remember that Prints make you look young and alive.
They add personality in your fashion ensemble.
Don't be afraid to play with prints as it could surprisingly be your style asset.

Sometimes, things are better in black and white :)

The Art of Time

Last Tuesday, July 29,2014, I attended a Private Launch of 
one of the biggest watch brand to invade the Philippines. 


The exclusive affair was held in The Gramercy
located in Century City.





Just check out this spectacular view from the top 


The launch was graced by VIP guests, celebrities and people from the media industry.
Checkout the spotlight on the beautiful Sister Secrets Councilor Charisse Abalos  
having a good tie cmhatting with Shamcey Supsup-Lee and husband Lloyd Lee (across). 
Mr. and Mrs. Lee were actually the earlybirds for the evening.

Meet the hosts for the night:
Eri Neeman and the stunning Karen Bordador of Sister Secrets 



So what's the latest buzz?

It's about time that I introduce them: Max XL.
Max XL are premium timepieces from the Netherlands.
The brand has already made a name in Italy, Russia, Hong Kong, 
Japan, and now to invade the Philippines.


While looking at Max XL's various watch collection, 
there is one that caught my attention: 

Max full IP chrono watch- 44mm- IP Gold


If you've been following my blog posts, I'm sure you know by now
that my style is chic yet classy

This classic gold chronograph is a perfect fit to my personality. 
Since I have a very uptight schedule as a businesswoman and
a fashion blogger and stylist, the classic design and color of this 
chrono watch allows me to easily pair it with any look.

Simply the promise of every pair of Max XL: Maximum style and identity 


The Artisan collection has 4 gorgeous colors to choose from:
Gold (obviously my favorite), silver, rose gold and black.
All are equipped with steel case, brown dial, date calendar and
solid steel band with extra flip-lock safety.



And if you're up for some attitude,
then these oversized model timepieces are for you.
It ranges from the round 42mm diameter series to the XXL-sized 55mm Aviator series.


Meet the brand ambassadors of Max XL Philippines:
Sid Maderazo, Abby Asistio and Rico Blanco



A big congratulations to the entire team who brought 
Max XL to the country, 

Mr. Christopher Tan, Director of Max XL,
Jerry Tiu, Kristieanna Pangan-Lacson and Carlo Mendoza.



Max XL timepieces range from P10,000-P30,000 and are available
in Greenbelt 5, Bratpack - Shangrila Mall East Wing, Alabang Town Center,
 Robinson's Magnolia, Washington-Shangrila and Glorietta.
Whatever lifestyle you have, there's a perfect pair for you, so grab a pair now :)



To cap off my post, here's what I wore to the event for a MAXimum Look. 
A pre-event shoot in broad daylight :)


As expected, dark and neutral colors would be the go-to color of 
Max XL guests because of the event's location.

Because I wanted something different but would still totally complement
my personality, checkout my color of choice.
Shades of blue and green, combined with black and gold combo


A color choice that exudes a distinct character.
Remember dear readers, cliche as it may sound,
a quote that I try to live by
"You don't have to fit in when you're born to standout" :)


And just for the record, if anyone thought that I'm wearing a dress,
it's actually a top and skirt that I combined to create an oomph of uniqueness.
Dare to be different and make the MAXimum happen :)

Sweet Endings with My Cadbury Barkada

Let's admit it. Every single day, we face our own battle scars.
From heartaches to stress, sometimes we just have to break-free.
Even just for a few minutes...


So today, I'm going to be your Angel sent from above. 
Let me tell you the secret to staying happy.

My Barkada's Ultimate Comfort Food has always been CHOCOLATE.
And it's not just any kind of chocolate, 
 it should always be CADBURY DAIRY MILK.


Our barkada makes it a point to unwind and relax especially during weekends.
We take a dip in the pool, discuss matters of the heart and mind
over some hot cocoa and Cadbury Dairy Milk. Our Bonding Moment!

Our barkada loves Cadbury because every bite oozes with creaminess and
mouthwatering chocolate goodness. It's an instant perk me up and always gives
us a SWEET ENDING ----a LIFE booster if you might call it!


So if you're looking for the ultimate Comfort Food,
why not go for the best in creamy chocolate goodness!
Grab your Cadbury Dairy Milk and experience Sweet Endings.

I can actually pass as Cadbury's brand Ambassadress, don't you think?
(laughs, just kidding)
How I wish! As they say, always support what you love.
So dear readers, time for some Cadbury snacks! :)


 Smile and stay worry-free dear readers! Cheers! :)

That Girl Next Door

Hello dear readers! I hope everyone is safe from the recent typhoon that hit the country.
To keep things light, I decided to share with you some quotes that I live by. 
Enjoy my Girl Next Door peg.


To live is the rarest thing in the world. 
Most people exist, that is all.” 
― Oscar Wilde

Life is worth living with a purpose. True enough, we have our own
self-serving goals but it should never stop there. 
I find myself the happiest when I'm able to be of service to other people.


Just when you think it can't get any worse, it can
And just when you think it can't get any better, it can.” 
― Nicholas Sparks

Things happen when we least expect it.
Every day, we encounter problems that may make us think less of ourselves.
As difficult as it may be, I try to remind myself that every day is an 
opportunity to make better versions of myself and I hope dear readers,
you do too. Having a positive outlook is key.


I have found that if you love life, 
life will love you back. 
― Arthur Rubinstein

Give and Take. I've always believed in that.
Don't take it literally though. 
What you invest in --- whether in education, career,
relationships, experience etc., these when used right will remain
an asset that no one can take away from you. 


You're never fully dressed without a smile
― Martin Charnin 

One of our best assets is our smile. 
With it, we become more approachable.
In fact, it's the best accessory for any outfit. :)

I hope I was able to inspire you in some way.
Now some details of my ensemble.


Denim Vest from Forever21
Necklace from Plains and Prints
Bangles by Tomato
Bag from ROMWE 
Shoes by WADE
Shades by Splatt MNL



Each one of you can make this world a better place to live in.
A pleasing personality, a positive outlook and a charming smile
will definitely bring you to places.

In my opinion, The Girl Next Door type of girl is 
the kind of girl most parents would approve of.
Let's all strive to become one. Stay sweet and Lovely!

Cheers,
IamMyOwnStylist
