129th: Tonight, we are young

Hello there guys! I’m really trying my best to blog more frequently, you know, but I’m really busy with school so I blog if time permits. I have crazy readings to do and I just trust everything to the Almighty to help me through this. 😉

Due to my busy schedule, my blog posts from now on will be short and simple. I know that you guys are used to me being so overly dramatic on my posts… which is the real me. lol I have to manage my time properly so I can get things done! 😀

Now to my outfit… something youthful since I’ve noticed I’ve been posting casual and formal lately.

Even though I still have lots of outfits to show you guys, I reached my basic clothing items for a youthful, fun, and edgy look.

Very simple, but with the right attitude, oh baby you’re so hot! lol

Oh don’t ask me if I’ve gained weight, it’s the time of the month you know? lol Always my excuse, right? lol

shirt: Zara; shorts: Forever21: neckalces: UO; shoes: DAS; sunnies: Prada

Well, that’s it guys! Something fun and youthful! I will try to blog outfits like this more often since it’s very easy to do and hey, who doesn’t like some years deduct from their actual age?! lol

Talk to you guys soon! Love you all! 🙂

128th: I miss blogging

The weather today wasn’t that bad, it was quite chilly but I know this is better than what the weather would be like for the following months. So I am now grabbing the chance to wear “summer clothes” before it’s too late!

We went to different places today and I actually forgot to take photos of my outfit so we took the photos after we went home. As you can see with my photos, my makeup has already worn out. lol

Now to my outfit…

dress and necklace: Urban Outfitters; shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

Don’t hate me for not blogging the whole entire week! I was so busy with school!

Every Thursday is our quiz day… it’s really not a quiz since you have to read at least 80 pages from your textbook! Like seriously, last Wednesday, I didn’t sleep at all! It wasn’t a good thing to do though because my skin surely suffered! 😦 I had very dry skin the following day. Third year is the busiest year for me as a nursing student, so my blogging would surely be affected. I believed I had pretty nice outfits last week but I just had no time to blog! 😦 I will try my best though. I swear!

I’ll talk to you guys soon!

127th: Printed wide leg trousers

Hi guys! School started last Tuesday so I was pretty much occupied with my school stuff. I had to read at least 4 chapters a day… so yeah, I was pretty busy. I try not to put things at the very last minute like I used to for the last 2 years, but I don’t know until when this would last. lol Due to my responsibilities as a student, and an important person of the family and the society (lol) I had no time to take pictures and to blog. So I apologize if I haven’ replied to any of your comments here on my blog. I have 80+ pending comments that I have to.. have to read soon! Again, I sincerely apologize my friends.

Now to my outfit…

Yes! I am wearing a wide-leg trouser but with print! lol I know I have worn too much wide-leg trousers here in my blog, but I can’t get enough of how they make me look so tall and skinny! lol I also love the print added to this pair of trousers so it’s more special, thus I love it more! lol

black panel corset: H&M (from $49 to $7); wide-leg trousers: Zara (from $79 to $19): necklace: Urban Outfitters (from $43 to $5)

I bought this pair of trousers last December when Zara had their boxing sale and I haven’t worn it even once. Since it was sunny this morning, I’ve decided to wear it finally!

I love the whole look. I love how it looks classy yet gives a youthful edgy look especially with the necklace added.

Side track! Many of you are wondering how I’m feeling now after I got my braces! hahaha. Well, it’s been over a week now so it’s not sore now. I FEEL WAAAY BETTER NOW especially that I CAN EAT AGAIN! lol I mean, I ate after 3 days of having braces but I ate soft foods. Now I can eat pretty much everything again. lol

and my braces don’t bother me that much anymore. I’m getting used to it.. slowly. 🙂

Well, that’s it guys!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Make sure to have some fun since I know school and work kinda sucks sometime! lol I will talk to you again on my next post! I LOVE YOU ALL!

126th: The problem of having braces

Sorry for not posting anything for the past few days. We had visitors over the weekend and I was pretty much occupied even before that. Oh, and remember that I got my braces? So I was actually in pain for days. Speaking of braces and pain, I didn’t eat solid foods for 2 days  and just had protein shakes, juices, noodles, you know… soft ones. Because of that, I’ve lost weight! I wanted to lose weight but right now, I’m bothered how fast I’ve lost weight that it’s not healthy for me. Gah! I hate my braces, but whatever… no pain no gain. lol

So for my outfit of the day… so we went to Crossiron today just to have fun. lol I was wearing a simple color block dress I bought from Urban Outfitters for only $10! They had a 50% off sale so from 20, I just paid 10! How awesome is that?!?!

Now, this dress is actually a bodycon dress with cut-out details.. but the thing is, I’ve lost too much weight that if you look at the dress, it doesn’t really hug my body like the way it’s supposed to.

Here, I’ll show you another picture. Don’t tell me to get a smaller size because this is already xs! 😦 Can you see how it’s kinda loose? UO’s dresses fit me well, especially the xs but right now, they’re too big for me! Please tell me that this pain from my braces will eventually go away! I need to eat!!!

Even at the back, you can see how it doesn’t fit me well. 😦

One more problem… having braces is so awkward! lol I mean, I don’t even know how to smile now! lol My face feature also changed that I don’t know if  what angle is the best for me. lol gah whatever! lol

Well, that’s it guys! I just wanted to tell you my problem! lol This problem though is not really a big problem, I can just drink lots of protein shakes and fruit shakes and I hope I’ll be okay. My big problem is my school starts tomorrow and I’m not yet prepared for it! lol So I should go now and prepare myself! I’ll be up early tomorrow (gah! I’m not used to it anymore) so that’s it guys!

Thank you for reading!

125th: My braces journey starts today

Hi guys. How you doing? This post will be one of those random posts I have. lol Well, I know this is a fashion blog but do you guys remember my Manny Pacquiao’s last fight post and my Somebody That I used to Know cover? This is one of them… just a random post by yours truly. Actually, not really. lol I don’t know how you define fashion but for me, fashion is not just about expensive clothes or shoes. For me fashion is being confident of what you are, what you have… clothes for example. I wear clothes that I think look good in it. lol Fashion for me too is having beautiful face – wearing makeup to hide your eye bags or your enlarged pores. lol Fashion is having beautiful skin – using products that were designed for your skin type. As I said, fashion is being confident!

Two things a person notices the first time they meet a stranger.. I mean generally. First is the person’s eyes. Second is their smile. So okay, I said smile I didn’t say teeth. However, your smile depends on how confident a person is in showing their teeth. Some people smile with their lips closed so people could not see their teeth.

Well, that was my problem…. Here, I’ll show you my smile.

I have spaces between my teeth and my left top incisor is kinda rotated and actually smaller than the rest of my teeth. I was supposed to show you my bottom teeth but I’m kinda shy. lol I’ll show it to you once there is an improvement so you can see the difference.

I did not edit the photos so forgive my eye bags and my super dry skin. I also have a cold sore that’s why my upper lip is so dry.

Now, today… I decided to change my smile. I GOT BRACES TODAY!

Now here’s my photo with my braces on.

Wait. Let me rant first on how dry my skin is due to my sunburn! My skin’s basically peeling because I was exposed to too much sun when I went to the camp meeting. BOOOO! I hate it when I get sunburns but oh well. My skin is so dry that it looks like I have fine lines. pftt. whatever.

So yeah. I had the white ceramic ones at the top and the traditional silver ones at the bottom.

My treatment plan will take two years for the braces then a year for retention.

Overall, the cost of my braces is $8000 and there were options how you want to pay.

When I convert that to Philippine peso that’s approximately Php 350,000. Like, seriously?!?!

Canada vs Philippines

I’m 22 and I just had braces! In Canada though, only 25% of adults get braces. Braces are basically for kids. I mean the right time to get braces is when you’re a kid. Braces in Canada is a must-have, something that every person needs to get (if their teeth are not perfect). Sometimes (I mean most of the times), braces is not something that a person is proud to show off! People get embarrass when they have braces. As I said, generally. Not all of them. Not me! 😀

The reason for that I think is… I’m a Filipino! In the Philippines, people show off their braces! lol When I was a kid, braces were soooo expensive that my mom could not afford. Now, everyone has braces – kids, youth, adults. I’m sure it’s waaaay cheaper than the cost of getting them here in Canada. Actually when I was a kid, braces is a symbol of the person’s economic status – if they’re rich or not.

If you’re curious, if it hurts… getting them on didn’t hurt at all. It was just uncomfortable since I had to open my mouth for an hour. The “pain” though starts few hours after you got them. It’s been 12 hours now, and they’re starting to get sore. They don’t hurt when you’re not doing anything. They hurt when you chew or close your mouth. 😦

That’s it! Countdown to new teeth (and new life? lol) starts today! 2 years, bring it on!

124th: Enough of the cut-outs

Just a very simple post. This was taken weeks ago (as you may have noticed with my hair) but I just wanted to show you my cute little cut-out dress. You know I love cut out dresses. I think they’re very sexy! The bad thing with them is you need to have “lesser” amount of fats (lol) since anything bulging will be noticeable, plus you need to think of what to do with your bra. lol Of course you need to have something underneath! lol

So I watched The Bourne Legacy yesterday! To those who have watched it already, what do you think about it? If you ask my opinion, then I have to say it was really good! It was really good because the action scenes gave me a good laugh since the movie’s location was in the Philippines (oh, hi, if it isn’t too obvious, I’m a Filipino). It was amusing for me since I could understand what the people were talking about. I don’t know though, I think I was looking for more intensity when it was time for the action scenes. I’m really interested though on other’s point of view!

Now to my outfit…

Very simple dress. I’ll show you a close-up version so you can see the cut-out.

Yeah? lol

Ohhh. Here. Look at my fats. lol Nevermind my fats. Just look at how cute the back is! Love the cut-out detail!

Ohhh. And see my tan lines?!?! Since I was really dark and just turned out fair because of all the soaps I’ve used (lol) I tan easily. Like this and it takes forever to remove this. That’s okay though.

UO dress: from $59 to $19

I’ve realized that blue looks good on me. I mean I look good in blue. What about you? Is there a particular color that suits you the best?

I’ll keep this post short and simple. So that’s it!

Thank you for reading people! 🙂

123rd: Before summer ends

School’s starting next week so I should try my best to blog whenever I’m free… like right now. lol Next week will be pretty intense since it’s the first week again plus I will have a midterm right after few days. Oh well, I can do this! I don’t have any choice but to deal with it! lol

My day’s actually been interesting. I stayed home all day but couldn’t stop smiling/laughing the whole time… you know just talking to some people. Oh well. It was a good laugh. Let’s just say… talking to “kids” (what I call teenagers) can make you smile/laugh. Teenagers these days!!!! lol I cannot share what we’ve talked about… but really interesting! lol

Now to my outfit….

This is my last Zara dress that I’ll be featuring. lol I swear to that! I know I’ve been posting Zara dresses and what’s the point of having a fashion blog if I don’t “experiment” with other brands as well. Right?

Let me show you what the dress really looks like. It is just a very simple dress… just a bodycon with lace details…. and…

TADA. A backless feature. lol You know I’m a backless person! lol

Zara dress: from $60 to $29

Ohhh. I am so happy that I finally own a metal plate belt with studs! I got it from ASOS for $27.

Oh and did you notice that I DYED MY HAIR dark brown?!?! I’m still thinking if I should keep it or if I should dye it darker or lighter again.

Well, that’s it guys!

I’ll talk to you laterrrrr! Love you! ❤

122nd: Fil-Can Camp Meeting 2012

I haven’t blogged in a while so I’ll be talking a lot in this post, just a heads up for you guys. What made me missed blogging for few day? Honestly, I don’t remember! I think it was because my mom was here the whole week so I had to stay home and just hung out with her. I also had couple of check-ups (health wise) that I went to and I’ll be telling you more about it in few more days! I’m stoked! When I said I’m stoked, that means it will be a good thing so don’t worry too much! lol

Another reason was… should I tell you or should I not? HAHA. It was the time of the month(too much info for a blog I know)! The thing though is I really want to rant on how I hate dressing up while I have.. yeah! Two reasons (or more). First, I just don’t like how it feels. I think all girls agree on this.  I told you before that I like those bodycon (fitted) dresses so it’s always a hassle wearing loose or baggy clothes! I think the number one reason though is… you know us girls, we tend to gain weight while we’re on that time of the month! The weight though is just water weight since our body is retaining water for homeostasis since we’re losing blood which is a volume as well. I know there’s more perfect or thorough explanation for this but that’s the simplest way to explain it I guess. So our “puson” or the lower tummy tends to “look bigger” or for me, I really feel and look bloated. Isn’t our body so amazing? Everytime I study Anatomy and Physiology, I’m always amazed on how mighty and great our God is of creating our bodies which is beyond any science can make.

Speaking of how great our God is I think I should talk about my outfit post first before I talk more since I know I’ll be saying a lot (nope, I haven’t even started). lol

Do you guys still remember my bustier top from the oh-so-famous post (char!) the Must-have-petticoat-skirt post? When I was taking photos I realized that I have worn this top once and I’ve told you before that I still have lots to show you so I’m trying to avoid blogging the same dress/top/skirt or whatever it is twice! No second time until I finish wearing all clothes I have on my closet. That’s also the same thing I’m telling myself everytime I’m tempted to shop! lol

I guess though, it’s okay since I was wearing a short and fluffy petticoat on that post. On this one, I’ll be posting a maxi sheer skirt with slits on the sides. I think it’s sooo sexy! 😉

I look prego on this photo but who cares. The skirt is size small so it’s pretty big on me. You know I’m petite so I tried to pull all the loose waist band then kinda tuck it in at front of the wide belt f(if that makes sense or maybe, if I explained it correctly lol).

What do you think? I really love the skirt sooo much! I got it from H&M when they had their sale months ago so I can’t remember the price. I’m sorry. lol

Since I’m Filipino, I always try to do wacky poses at the end of my photos… wacky or JUMP SHOT!!!  Well, obviously I chose the latter just to emphasize my slits.

—————————

So now you guys may be wondering where I took all these photos. You know me, I always tell you what I did for the day or where I went to give you more idea of how my day/s went.

“To Live, To Love, To Serve”

That was our “theme” for our 10th Filipino-Canadian Adventist Camp meeting that was held just this weekend. So yes, it was just 3 hours ago. I just got home actually. lol Every year we go to Foothills Camp in Bowden Alberta for the gathering of all the Adventist Filipinos in Alberta. It’s usually a 3-day event but others go a day earlier to play any sports. I’ve been going since 2006… so I’ve been there, 7 times? Lots of memories on that place! lol

This year though, I’ve noticed that there were waaayyy less people than the previous years. It didn’t bother us though because I think everyone of us enjoyed the camping! I was really moved by Pastor Aguilar’s sermons – Baaadventist and I Love Prostitutes. Pastor Charles Aguilar is a youth pastor from British Columbia. I will talk more about what he preached about on another posts but the sermons were about Esther and Tamar… these Bible characters were bad examples for God’s people, but in the end they teach us that God can use anyone… that even a badventist or bad Christian can save God’s people. Very touching, right? We have to admit… it is sooo hard to forget what a person was based on what we heard from other people… we also are not forgiving people! We say we forgive you, but the truth is…. we don’t. We don’t forget. I’m just touched how God is so forgiving and merciful that He can do all these.

Second reason why I love going to this camp meeting other than the sermons (trueee!), is I LOVE HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS! It’s always nice to hang out with friends and just do some crazy stuff! lol Our youth group is soooo fun to be with especially most of them are guys so they do the craziest thing a person can do! Like trying to do a long jump with just their briefs on or trying to get people wet by trying to throw logs on small water pits.

Well this year, I have to say that most of my old friends/family left the camp early or did not attend so it was a time to hang out with new people. Well, they’re not really new there were only two new attendees – twins! Most of them, we know them for a year or two but just didn’t really get the chance to hang out with them. It’s always fun to eventually realize that a person is nice and very kind. I love that feeling of “satisfaction”. lol

One fact about me, I am more attached with guy friends than girl friends. I think it’s because I had too much drama with girl friends when I was young and even just a year ago (still kinda fresh). lol I think I’m the type of a girl friend that every girl dislikes/ hates and get jealous of, eventually. lol I only have one true best friend here in Calgary (I mean other than my church family) who doesn’t really care what I did wrong or if we don’t really hang out since I’m too busy with my boy – Precious. I am not really good in keeping up with girl friends. That’s the total opposite though when it comes with guys… I’m a guy person. I think it’s because I was just raised by my mom and really wanted to have that boy presence in our house… or may be just because boy friends = NO or LESS drama! Really, my guy friends will tell me straight up if I’m being bitchy or if they don’t tell me… they move on and don’t “create” issues about it. I don’t know. That’s what I really feel.  lol The bad side though is sometimes people (especially these girls (gah) ) thinks I’m a flirt because of that. HA HA HA. pffft girls. lol

Now, let me introduce my friends/families. It’s actually incomplete since I didn’t get the chance to take photos of everybody. Oh well, maybe next time.. next year? lol

Meet Calgary Southside and Metro, and Lethbridge represent!

Saturday afternoon we went for a little walk in the “kagubatan” and tried to look for treasures! lol jk. Oh we were just bored. haha. Anything boring but spending it with friends make it sooo fun to do, right?

That’s us trying to take a decent photo while… doing nothing.

Sorry, but I have to complain again. I think I’m gaining weight!! You know how I’m a weight freak. Anyways, I think I should’ve taken more photos!  Seriously, that was all I took. 😦

I just want to congratulate these four boys for winning our basketball tournament. As what I’ve mentioned above, there were way less people who attended and it’s sad since they didn’t get the chance to play with these guys. I will be looking forward to seeing these four and our team play in an intense game. We may not be the same basketball team, but hey… friends are friends, right? So I will still cheer for them and be “paos” the following day! lol

Well, that’s it guys! I hope you enjoyed your weekend as well, as much as I did! Sorry if it took me forever to blog again.. and it’s taking you forever to read all of these! lol.

Thank you for reading! Psttt. I love.. YOU! ❤

121st: Elbow Falls

My church friends and I went for a “hike” today at Elbow Falls. Well, we were supposed to hike but ended up just taking pictures then went home after that. lol First, I should stop calling them church friends since they’re not just “friends”. You know the saying some friends become a chosen family while some family… yeah. You know what’s next! It’s sad but you have to move on and just enjoy life. Friends who become your family are there for you, and you try to be there for them no matter what happens to them – good or bad.

Now, I’m not really the “best” friend a person can have. Seriously, I’m very bad at setting time to meet up with friends – having a dinner or whatsoever. I think it’s because I have a little one right now. Maybe when he grows bigger then I can really have some bonding time with my other friends. But you know what pisses me off?!?! Friends who want to be friends just because you go to the same school, or same group, or whatever. Then when they find other friends, then they ditch those old friends. I am not perfect and I used to do that as a teenager! lol I want to apologize to those people I’ve hurt because of that. lol But when you reach your 20’s… I think you should know better! Right?! Well, life is not always perfect and as what I’ve said, you really have to move on!

Now to my outfit!

Isn’t the place beautiful!?!?!? I have to thank my brother Lyre for taking all the photos for me! It’s been a while since he took my photos so I’ve really missed him! lol

I usually blur the background of my photos but for these photos. I want to show you how lovely the place is! I’ve been here so many times when I was still single, but this is the first since I had my baby.

As usual, people look at me like “why is she wearing a dress”?!?! I brought another outfit though for the hike.

I bought this H&M dress for $15. People think sometimes that a particular dress is a no no for them because of the style or color.. but I like getting those “no no” dresses! First, I don’t like walking in the mall then see a girl wearing the same dress as me. lol Second and the most important, I love cheap but turned-out-to-be-very-cute dress!

As you’ve seen on my other blog posts, I usually make my hair messy but for these photos I just wanted that boho look. Just flat and wavy hair.

One more thing I like about this dress? I love how it makes me “look” like I’ve lost weight! lol

Presenting the beautiful place and a beautiful face!! CHOS!! (pakapalan lang)

Well, that’s it guys! I know I haven’t blogged for a while but I guess this is worth the wait, right?! 🙂

Tata! ❤
