She may have lost the vibe of Christmas, but not in this outfit. Not in the spirit, but she wanted to look a tad  bit extra. With the help of the leather jacket for concealment of her so-called muffin top. She wears something simple yet elegant with a pair of black mules and a red lip to give it that classic look.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!!

When it comes to having a personal style the "Manila-esque" style did grew on me. It helped me venture out in just being more loose and carefree with what I wear everyday (in school that is).

This could be worn in three different situations: school, festival, and to the mall.

I had the hotel room to myself for the whole night and originally making a make-up tutorial would be a good idea. So thought. It failed and why waste a fresh, full face of make-up and do a spontaneous shoot. Also I wore this outfit for less than 2 hours so I made the most out of it. It was my dream to have a shoot in a hotel room preferably at night where I feel like I am one of the Kardashians. Jokes aside, I'd imagine myself wearing something more elegant but the top gave it away, I guess.

The outfit was indeed inspired by two of my favorite style vloggers who happen to be Filipino. You might guessed it, its not other than ToThe9s. Not awhile ago, these two Filipino-Canadian stylish Youtubers came to Manila for their planned Meet and Greet for their fans (myself included). Although I failed to go but one of my closest friends was able to meet my idols, I was completely overjoyed for her. In one of their videos which featured off-the-shoulder outfits, I spotted Ricci's outfit which consisted of a blue striped off-the-shoulder top, cut off jeans and vans. There's something about the Girl meets Boy (or vice versa) outfit aspect that I have no complains whatsoever. This represented my style. If you knew me when I style my clothes I could go all "girly" or just laid back and just be comfortable without being so dainty.

New year has come and now that I realize I didn't get the chance to post on my birthday/birth-month? How ironic how life can be so tedious at times yet it can be so abrupt. Being in the legal age certainly can get you into thinking that it was the age that you will remodel or perhaps metamorphose. Comprehensively, takes time for you to change and revamp your lifestyle. It is the choices you make in order for you to achieve in becoming a better YOU.

 Here are the things I went through when I was 18 (and this is referring to me in third person but it may also be applicable to you! ;) ) :

1.  New people. Different characters, different attitudes.
2.  New music. You will be into more localindie that is
3.  New adjustments. More on self.
4.  Realizations. A lot of it. (Since 2016 was the year of realizing things, right?)
5.  Doubt.
6.  Existential crisis. Beware!
7.  New style. (Clothing wise obviously)
8.  New mindset.
9.  Motivation (what you do and possibly for exercise too!)
10. New stories


Hope you are having an amazing 2017 so far! and also I would like to say thank you for the birthday greetings.
