Photos of My Life No. 5: My Favorite Outfit
Posted on: 10th of July 2010 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

For my fifth set of Photos of My Life, Ate Janz requested a photo of my favorite outfit.

My fashion style is mostly on the safe side. I prefer buying classic pieces that won’t go out of style, so about eighty percent of my wardrobe consists of plains and basics. I don’t have a lot of printed stuff. However, I do have one printed dress that I really really like.

My leopard print bubble dress:

My Favorite Outfit 1

Leopard print bubble dress (SM Department Store), paired with my comfy brown flats (Rubi/Cotton On) and necklace (which I made).

It’s such a comfy and versatile dress. I can wear it on a casual stroll at the mall with a pair of flats, or for a night out of drinks and dancing paired with killer heels. Even my sister likes it. She has one too, which she wore during our ROM. :)

I love SM! They’re always stocked with gorgeous clothes and accessories at affordable prices. I grabbed this dress as soon as I laid my eyes on them. I just knew it was a keeper! =P

Anyway, because of this photo project, I ended up having a mini photo shoot with the husband earlier. =D

Photos of My Life No. 3: Inside My Bag
Posted on: 8th of June 2010 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

For my third set of Photos of My Life, an anonymous reader requested a look inside my bag. The last time I posted the contents of my handbag was way back in 2007 when I did the Face Your Pockets Project, so I had fun doing this.


Click image for a slightly bigger size.

Bag: Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Petit Noe (Brown). I love this bag, because I can use it with almost anything in my closet. It’s big enough to carry a lot of my junk too.

Inside: Book (I read everywhere, so I always bring a book with me), Aldo wallet, hairbrush, Charm stippling brush, M.A.C. lipstick in Brick-O-La, M.A.C. Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach, M.A.C. Studio Fix in NC35, Smith’s Rosebud Salve, mints, a tiny bottle of lotion, travel pack tissue (I always stock up on these when I’m in Manila… they don’t have this size here!), house keys, Cotton On shades (my sensitive eyes can’t live without sunnies), hair tie, metal Parker Jotter pen in pink, iPod touch (I use this mostly to play games. Current addictions: Scramble, Words with Friends and Angry Birds), iPod earphones, BlackBerry Curve 8320, Canon Ixus 80is, moleskine notebook.

This is already a scaled down version of the things that I usually stuff in my bag (I usually carry more makeup). I try to bring only the essentials now.

I also enjoy peeking inside other people’s bags, so show me what’s inside yours too. :)

Christmas Shopping
Posted on: 15th of December 2008 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

What better way to spend Sunday than to head out to town and join other shoppers in the joy of gift-buying. I was able to find a couple of gifts for some friends, but of course, after spending a very eventful week at work (designing and making detailed drawings — thank goodness I don’t have to design more complicated structures like steel buildings), I just had to treat myself as well. =P

I got myself another pair of black flats (at a great price!) from Aldo:


The other one I bought from Schu last week is a little too big for me, so I’m giving it to my sister instead. =D

I also bought the purple Aldo wallet that I had been eyeing for weeks:


That’s to replace my old Anne Klein II wallet that had to retire mid this year. =P

I still have a few more shopping to do before we fly back to Manila on Monday. My mom has already given me a list of other things she wants from here. See, I’m not the only shopaholic in the family; it runs in the blood. XD

Beauty Haul
Posted on: 8th of December 2008 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

Work has kept me really busy that on my days off, which are unfortunately only Sundays, I usually take advantage and sleep in the whole day. For the past three Sundays, the bed has been my lovely companion.

I realized that I haven’t been out to really enjoy my only work-free day of the week, so today I finally headed out to treat myself. :-)

I came home with these goodies:

  1. Clarins Ultra Matte Balancing Lotion. I got this for free through their 7-day trial. I have combination to oily skin (must really try out more healthy grilling options), and this product promises a long-lasting oil-free face. Will see how it goes.
  2. L’oréal Elsève Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Conditioner, because the bottle in my bathroom is almost empty.
  3. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish in Black Out, which I’m wearing right now! :)
  4. The Face Shop’s Fragrant Nail Enamel Remover in Pink. I love the smell of this!
  5. The Face Shop Nail Polish in RD303.
  6. MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. I got tired of having to sharpen my MAC Powerpoint all the time. =P
  7. MAC #266 Small Angle Brush, for the gel eyeliner.
  8. MAC Lipstick in Hug Me (Lustre).

I also got myself new black flats from Schu:

These were at 50% off! I love shopping during Sales! =)

I’m also anticipating the two-week trip back home to Manila for Christmas, because it means more time to relax and to go shopping! =)
