Thinking Out Loud

I've been busy lately, but whenever I've got the time, I actually enjoy reading Thought Catalog.
An article I read recently entitled 'In a World Trying To Make You Heartless, Be Kind', written by Rania Naim caught my attention.

One very inspiring message that she shared , to which I quote:
"In a world telling you that you can't have it all, dare to dream, dare to believe"

Yes, it may sound simple or rather cliche to some, but to me (and hopefully for you as well), it may serve as a reminder to always strive to create the best version of thy self. As they say, don't compare yourself to others; only compare yourself to yesterday :)

And of course, no matter how hard or hectic life may get, always dressup and look your best. Trust me, it will make your day a little bit better! Since the weekend is finally here, sharing with you two looks I created just because I received a quick challenge (Style A Print On Print Look, why not).

I'd like to end this post in the words of Rania, "In a world trying to change your heart, learn how to fight for it....because when this world ends, you won't remember the days you were cruel or heartless... you'll remember the times you fell in love, the memories that made you smile, and the people who were there for you."

So enjoy the weekend with people that matter. Cheers :)

One can always look extra stylish in athletic wear. 
Who says it has to be just leggings and yoga pants all the time? 

Well, I'm no athlete (and in fact will never be one!), 
but if I'm to dress a sports muse, this would be my style peg.

I would invest in pieces that are versatile just like this double slit dress. 
An ensemble like so allows me to move easily, not to mention, adds a playful vibe.

Since the dress is in a neutral shade, 
I suggest copping the look with bright prints. 
Accessorize by adding a pop of color thru a scarf or a purse. 
Get ready for your athleisure look to standout. 

Hope you enjoyed this post!

That Dinner Dance

Last Saturday, September 16, 2017, I was invited by my gorgeous bestfriend Jasmin
to join her in a Calbayog Celebration held in Manila Hotel.

I was told to come in semi-formal attire, hence the look 

Calbayog City is known as the City of Waterfalls, and home to the
 second Archbishop of Cebu, Julio Cardinal Rosales
It was a festive night-- a dinner dance if I may call it. 
The lovely affair was hosted by the Sarmiento family being this year's hermano/hermana.

Glad to see these beautiful ladies again

The look I went for was something sophisticated yet eyecatching.
Being a petite girl, lengthening my silhouette has always been on top of my list. 

And yes, showing a sliver of leg is one secret to making you look svelte.

The style of my ensemble is an offshoulder terno.
I just love how refreshing the color Phtalo Green in blue shade injects to my look.

I finished the look with a gold clutch and two-toned heels for some extra glam.
My style mantra: better be overdressed than underdressed, always :)

Dress from Atrium

Don't forget to sport your sweetest smile <3

Sweet Mess

Lately, I've been having trouble sleeping. 
Either someone's thinking of me (just kidding), 
or I really have bad sleeping patterns... hello insomnia!

Luckily, aside from the power of makeup,
 there's style & fashion to save me from looking utterly haggard.

Take cue from the dress I'm wearing.
Can you believe it's been years since I bought this from ROMWE,
 and I only got to wear this now. Good it still fits!

 Well, we all have those clothes that we have kept for a long
time, might be a good idea to rummage your closet my dear readers :)

The sheer design of my sleeves gives this LBD a playful vibe.
For a casual and effortless look, one quick tip is 
to wrap a denim jacket around your waist.

Denim will never go out of style.
So what do you think about this ensemble?
With just a little tweaking, this look can actually pass as
a fresh out of bed look. If you know what I mean, lol.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

The Paleo Way

I must confess that when it comes to eating, I'm one of the boys.
Diet is really not in my vocabulary (which explains the figure), 
because food is too good to resist.

If you follow my IG account, then I'm sure you know why :)

BUT for all those who love to eat, yet want to take care of their figure,
this entry is dedicated for you. As promised, I'm always on the lookout 
for good things, both for you and me. 

Got my 'happy dose of calories', thanks to Paleo Manila who delivered 
these sumptuous meals right to my doorstep. Whether you have no time to cook or
 are just looking for some healthy alternatives, then it's time to try Paleo :)

Zooming in to the meal plan...
A burst of flavors that definitely satisfied my hunger.
And a major advantage to all health buffs: 
All- Natural. Gluten-Free. Grain-Free. Non-GMO. No Preservatives. Woah.

So here's what I had from Breakfast to Dinner.

Time to Unbox! 5 meals for the day--- 2 of which are snacks!
Paleo certainly knows how to make diet meals fun and healthy :)
And if you're in the mood for a little more presentation,
then follow me by enjoying these meals with beautiful plating.

My tummy was very happy and what makes it even better is
 I need not even worry about my calorie intake because Paleo has got that covered,
 with carefully planned meals like so. 

Special thanks to Isabelle Chiang of Paleo Manila for letting me try this out!

Meet Paleo's 3 gorgeous founders.

A big congratulations to your 3rd Year Anniversary.
Cheers to more years of success! <3

Secret Garden

There's just so many things in life that you can't control.
Your thoughts, your feelings, they happen whether you like it or not.
In fact, the more you resist, the more it bothers you.

Life is a constant battle, and so is time. In fact, I'm writing this post
 to get my mind off things, as it was indeed a crazy work day.
 Blogging is a good avenue to release negative vibes. No worries, sharing fashion
 to my readers has never been a chore, as passion is there to inspire :)

I've always emphasized the importance of power dressing. 
Take for instance this pencil dress in floral that I'm wearing. 
The look I went for was something sweet and casual, without going overboard.
Pair it with some eyecatching heels and you're good to go. 

Dress by Taylor | Strappy heels by Payless

And oh, a little slit cut at the back gives it a sexy twist.

True, you ought to dress to impress, but that will only last you a few seconds.
 More than that, do remember that if you need to perk up your mood or set the 
right tone and attitude, the secret is the choice of clothing--style, color et al.

I do hope you learned a thing or two. 
Life is never easy, but one day, it will be worth it. 
Whether it's finding the right job, falling in love with the right person, or 
just simply being content with life, good things take time.

A love to Last

There's something about the Grecian culture that inspires and fascinates me. 
Back in college, my friends would call me Greek Goddess because of my fashion sense.

No wonder, when the time comes that I will ever get married, 
the theme will come as a no-brainer. Prepare for something divine.

Welcome to my humble home.  

All thanks to Jas, Echie and I were able to squeeze some time to visit this 
beautiful temple, on our short trip to Cebu last July :) 

It was raining back then but I didn't mind getting soaked
as long as I get great photos. Yes, for the love of photos!!!
My bestfriend was so concerned that I might get sick. 

I love you to bits! 

Located in Brgy Busay, Temple of Leah was built in 2012 by Ellen Adarna's grandfather
 Teodorico Adarna to honor his beloved wife of 53 years, Leah, who died of cancer. 

All of Leah's personal collection of books
and various art pieces are said to be housed in this grand temple.
Entrance fee for this 'tourist attraction' is Php 50.

Credits to my bestfriend Echie for taking my photos as well as for capturing 
the Grecian and Roman inspired architectural design and facade.
 She was very kind to share these with me.

Leah is indeed very lucky to have a man like Teodorico. He is such a keeper.
Death may have separated them physically, but the love they have for each other
remains to be intact through this magnificent tribute.

Dress from Atrium

Someday, I do hope to find the man that I will love for the rest of my life.
I don't know when, where and who but hopefully in God's perfect timing, I will.

Cebu is like my second home.

Hope you enjoyed this post! :)
