Scheduler Dress

One of the things that I can't live without having a single glance is my scheduler dress. As for those who haven't seen it, here's a glimpse of what's inside. It's already a year and counting. The pages are ripped but still I continue to sketch and write almost every important things in it. Most of my looks are drawn here because I'm really not good with details. I draw them so that I can browse every single look that I like, and those that I still haven't posted in my LB. It's my book of look memory, at times when I couldn't think of for a day, I just have to refer on it.

It's hard to replace this because it already has a great value in my heart. Memories, I can still remember everything when I flip the pages back and forth especially with the months and reminders recorded. Unfortunately I still can't find a replacement for this. There are lot of nice organizers but never did I find one with a section where I can sketch my looks. Something that would define me as it's owner if ever I'd left it somewhere.

After blogging this, I hope you guys inform me if you can find something taking note of the grid lines for sketching..

It's been a year...

    February 16 when is the exact day that I left the world of contact center and started working as an official G.A.. I never noticed that it's already been a year since then. I got a glimpse of what was in the past when I personally received this health card from our HR. I don't know when will I be staying here, but one thing is sure. That I won't stay long as my heart belongs to fashion. I've been thankful with the huge names that builds my portfolio for the past year and more as well as on the other hand I also have my share of complains as there  are no perfect company in the real world. I am living my life in opportunity and making the best of what I can. Not abusing myself, balancing my life and of course social life. For I wouldn't sacrifice anything that regards my health.

    On a lighter note, it was never a huge deal on my part having a title or something. I am spontaneous and I'm throwing up stress away from my way. Our Head Creative mentioned that I'm already considered as one of the Senior Artist, which was very surprising and overwhelming. I was just speechless because I didn't expect to hear that. I admit I hate responsibilities. I'm a traditional type of guy and I play safe. That's why it wasn't really a big deal for me. I thought of just being the same old artist of my own who consistently comes to work for a living and enjoys off during the weekends. Hence, I realized I can never be any super hero. because ever since I have this talent, this skill, I've always been setting responsibilities aside. Probably partly because I hate stressing myself too much. I hate pressure. I'd make it a point that every task will be easy for me. I know it's not so right standing on my views, but that's how I live up at the moment.



Baguio: Day 3


This was the 3rd day of my tour in Baguio with the 2 Jaros. We spent the morning with a movie "Holiday", and after which we rested again. As I oath the day before that I will buy more for myself, I had to prepare and come with Jaro because I will be left at home since Andro will deliver his laundry. The plan was to roam around the night market by 9pm so I had no choice but to come with them. We did an early look photo shoot (as if it was our daily routine. lol) And gone in separate ways. Me and Jaro waited for his friend (I forgot her name. lol) to pick up the clothes that she needed to disposed at the same time waiting for Andro in SM Baguio.

We separated ways again to have my look photos done and I had to catch up the market for my "pasalubong"(souvenirs). Roamed around Harrison Road to kill time and after shopping an old lady told me to pray always (like out of the blue!). So I had goosebumps, felt weak and really bothered by what she just said. Jaro kept on explaining that I don't have to worry about it because it happens all the time with his friends. We headed to the Cathedral to pray and give thanks since it was Sunday. Jaro didn't choose to come inside the church and just took photos instead because he was just wearing tank top.

I felt relieve after praying though I admit I'm really a scaredy cat even with those simple kind of scenarios. (Probably being a creative person gives me an exaggerated visions about everything that could happen. XD) We were supposed to go home after feeling so tired around Baguio but then I forgot to withdraw my money for the night market. We went our way to the atm near the stop where we're supposed to ride back home but then all of the atms of my account were offline trying different ones along our way back to SM to eat and take a cab from there. It was just 2 hrs before the night market so we just rested after eating dinner as we watched performance of dance groups held at the side of SM. We went to ZEN tea to checked if Andro were done with their meeting as I was mesmerized with the ambiance they have there. I wanted to have a look photo taken there if I would have another chance!

We decided to go back home to drop first our stuffs before going to the night market. While we were heading the streets I felt like a bad luck because there were guys strangling and throwing things that scared me. But those things didn't take long as I was excited to see the long row of clothes on the streets. I really took the time to check out each and every part so I won't miss a thing while Jaro served as my escort to have my discount. lol

After roaming along the night market, I only got myself a few stuffs because there were a lot for the guys and only few things of my taste. I got a bag, a beanie, earrings, socks, and a dream catcher phone charm which you will see soon with my look photos. *wink

Next post is our last day look in Baguio!

Rain Supreme x Boredom

Hi guys! I feel like already been a long time since I last blogged. (noticing my topblogs rate exceeded 250. LOL XD) Oh well, since I'm still waiting for my other photos from Baguio (*ehemm! XD) I got chock-full of blog posts on pending and been skipping on some blah blahs. XD But I don't wanna leave you guys behind! So yes after payday I feel like broke again after of course paying bills and my sister's tuition fee (yes, I do pay my sister's tuition fee because I'm the bread & butter of the family. XD) It was all rainy that day and I was really on the hype of dressing up. So I wore up my boots on and used my new black satchel bag I bought from Baguio. (Sorry didn't bring Brent because I was afraid he might get wet from the rain, like I didn't wanna take the risk XD) I decided to go in SM and check if my customed contact lenses were ready to picked up, but unfortunately they said that the outlet didn't notify them regarding my lens and will just text me when it's already with them. So I roamed around while waiting for Maggie (my college who's been ages since I last went out!).

I came back for the red clubmaster (which I was planning to wear on my shoot with Jeff Yarra) but then they said they already ran out of it and left with a leopard print (I felt like dying) I bought that leopard print club master because I didn't wanna miss the chance of not having a Php99.00 club master in hand. Then I saw this red wayfarer in the men's section and grabbed it. Like I thought it's a better alternative than without having any red cool shades. I dumb-founded myself having 2 shades in hands. XD I also luckily bought a polka-dotted socks which I'm already excited to wear with one of my quirkiest looks. (I will come back for the other grey one promise!)  Now I'm saying good luck to myself in the midst of my working days because I need to budget my allowance. XD The day was filled up with lots and lots of laughs as the usual thing to see with us. I wish to see our friend Sharmaine real soon too!

Until next time!

♡Strawberry Cheesecake♡

One day, upon mix & matching my clothes before going to work. I tried combining my pastel red sweater with my cheesy pants (as I normally do every working days). A thought if it would work with my cheesy pants as the least option I got (since I have no white pants in my closet which is the usual pair) I instantly fell for the entire look as it reflects softness and gentleness. I left the chest part with a thin crisp of silver necklace so that it won't look busy and remain the subtleness of the entire look.

Gave an extra touch of pink on the back part of my pants with my hanky that served a purpose and created an accent.
I added a bit of "caramel flavor" so to speak for the belt to create a cut between the berry shade
and cheese. For the shoe part I wore a plain flat pair of black shoes contrasting the 2 palettes as I still referred to my color wheel.
Flowers = Perfect match
A walk in the park + Cold atmosphere + Heat of the sun.
Simple touches for the accessories: Black and khaki platted suedes from Landmark while for the rings
I wore a stoned signature ring from Folded & Hung and a quirky mustache ring I got in one of the jewelry store in Quiapo.
I decided to bring this to Baguio because summer is coming and it's already taking too long to be posted on my LB account. I tried wearing it my grey pants but it went a bit dull on the lower part. But I'm glad now to share with you one of my dashing and favorite looks as it reflects my main style.

What I'm wearing: Red pastel pull over, Mint | Cheesy pants, Jewel | Khaki belt, 168 | Black flats, SM Dept.

Baguio: Day 2

It was Day 2 in Baguio. Bright sunny, chillin' morning as I cam whored around our bed room. ☀☃Stuffs were everywhere, my things and his were everywhere.  XD Really nice place to stay at. ✔ We finally got our sleepy heads around 10-ish and prepared ourselves for our first stop, the Bell Church (like I had no idea what does it look like). Jaro told me to wear something really light because I might sweat a lot like I use to in Manila. XD I layed all my outfits as I kept on asking which is which to wear for that day. LOL (O.C. much I know XD) He said we'll be visiting their school University of Cordillera, so I thought I should look dashing in prep style. All done with the right pastels and I'm glad Jaro liked it as it really feels good to wear on a very great day in a very colorful place to stay like Brentwood Village. Everything was just so positive and sweet!

my bag
my mess
I loved how the sunlight spreads the attic to the other side of the room
Important stuffs to bring :3
Glimpse of how beautiful the house was
Jaro preparing breakfast
The interior is like in the states.

We rode a cab to Bell Church a Chinese temple where people could pray and take pictureslike it's a little China in Baguio
those two
Didn't come with them because I was so exhausted to hike up plus the heat of the sun. XD
Love em thrifted boots <3
It was very sacred and soulful to be there. I felt it's more quiet than in Binondo. hehe. I took some look photos of Jaro complimenting his red flagged shirt which I think is his best one because he looks some British prep! ;3 After which we went down and some visitors mentioned like one of us looks so David Guison, like it was the funniest ever that day! XD (I'm sure it was not me looking all prepped up pastel XD)
Light x Dark
We got off the David humor and went to their school at UC. We roamed around the campus with a bit of awkwardness on my part as total new face of the campus (I hope they won't connotate me and my look as one Regina George in the movie Mean Girls XD). Plus Jaro seemed to be well-known in the campus with his hi's and hellos to everyone. We decided to have our lunch at their school canteen since it was already hot outside. Chit chat some of their introduced friends. I must say it's cool that there is an obvious cult divisions in their canteen like ones we seen on American teen movies. Very Mean Girl-ish moment I must say! LOL XD Oh how I miss my school and being a student!
Jaro's Book - The Little Prince <3
My lunch
The balcony is just in front of SM Baguio which is so cool because I'd be staring from afar all day if I studied here. LOL
While waiting for Andro's (as what I personally chose to call Jaro Nicandro) class to start. We cam-whored.
Class? hihi
Me playing like a mean professor. hurrhurr!
Where are the students at?!?! O.O
Some "candid"
trio <3
This is where we got a chance to "sit in" with his Photo Journ class held by Sir Kurt
which made it more exciting and missed more more of my college days esp basic photog class.
Somehow refreshed my lessons. <3
Me and Jaro were murmuring bout 1 student if he's wearing Marc Ecko or Marc Jacobs shoes XD
Midway of their class we sneaked out and shopped at the ukay-ukay (thrift shop) place where I didn't know where to start when I first got my foot on. XD I got stuffs for my sister because there were a lot for girls and had hard time finding for my petite boy body. XD I thought I will be disappointed because I only got for my sister but then Jaro brought me to where he usually refers for his shoes and I found a nice pair of sandals which I didn't have in my rack. We were asking for discount yet we lost but I still didn't get away without it. XD 
Look! My recent project is already posted! XD
My work. Suu proud of myself <3
Along the sidewalk we headed for my fox tail but unfortunately I wasn't able to get even a single fur of it. ;'< I was so disappointed like that's one of the reason why I'm in Baguio like hello fox tail vendors! If you're reading this I hope you could throw me one pls! X( Anyway! I treated Jaro for some cheese burger because walked ourselves to starve for nothing. After which I tried to up lift myself with some photos on the road as if I'm in Japan.^o^v ♡
What I love about this photos is that it looks like the narrow streets in Japan
Goofy Prince XD
Decided to retreat in SM Baguio as our quarters for food and place to compose ourselves from everything.
And tried our first attempt to shoot for my look photos, but then there was a lot of dark areas at the back of SM plus
the guards kept on watching at us stepping on the grass. XD I wanted to step on it because I thought the look is
so spring and that it would look pretty if I surrounded by green.

Look at the grass! <3

Jaro was so pissed with his hair and erratically headed to the cheapest barbershop to have a quick trim while I did the instructions. XD
The adventure that day had a mix of something unexpected as I encountered some uneducated entity of a woman who knocked me off my state of euphoria in Mcdo. Gracefully got rid of BV and walked it thru. Realizing the aftermath of shopping is losing money without having enough shopping bag for myself! I was like in panic mode. So I swore that I need to shop again tomorrow! Do or die! And dragged Jaro to the grocery section to buy our food and save up for tomorrow's errands! I'm glad I had to be the budget freak among the 3 of us which I don't really do back in Manila especially at home! XD We finally went home dead tired, ate ourselves for dinner then hit the bed... ☠

Day 2 Hello Day 3! ✔

I'll post my look photos for DAY 2 as a separate blog.
