Miss Dinagyang 2013

Last night, I was fortunate to witness the Miss Dinagyang 2013 Pageant Night at our television! Haha..too bad I haven't got any tickets for the pageant night. At first I didn't know that there was a live telecast by the Sky cable channel. Luckily, I scanned through the channels and found the live telecast. The swimsuit competition had just ended and the long gown competition is about to start. After the long gown competition, they had the interview. After that they announced the winners for the best in interview, evening gown, talent, fantasy makeup, festival costume and swimwear.

DIY Studded Shorts

Hi everyone! I just wanna share to you my DIY studded shorts that I'm so happy about. I became a fan of studs, ombre shorts and shorty shorts. I had a lot of unused jeans so I transformed it into shorts. Then I saw a page in Facebook that sells studded shorts. I couldn't afford one so I decided to make my own studded shorts. I just used my cutted shorts and bought some studs. :)

University of San Agustin: A Day at my Alma Mater

Landscaped gardens

Yesterday I went back to my school to get the papers I needed. Together with my twin sister, we strolled around the campus to see what's new. It's been three years since I've graduated and I have not returned to my alma mater quite sometime. We sat on the benches near the canteen and seeing the students exchanging conversations make me miss my college days. I miss studying and going to school. I miss my classmates and our laugh trips. I also miss wearing my school uniform! haha Those were the few things I miss during my college days. So to continue, after I have gotten the papers I needed, my twin and I passed by the main entrance of the school. I was amazed to see that the front portion was turned into a garden! They landscaped it and I was happy to see they planted green carabao grass and flowers. I was sad at first to see the big old trees cutted down but I know that they did this for a reason. I know the trees will grow back in time and it will make my school more beautiful.

Lace and Neon

White Lace Dress- Robinson's Mall     Gray Sweater- Robinson's Mall    Yellow satchel bag- Justlookatme Online shop   Accessories- Shop & Match    Sandals- SM Dept. Store

It was the first friday of the year 2013, so me and my sisters are out to unwind and chill at Smallville. I wanted to have a simple yet stylish look so I decided to wear this white lace dress and paired it with my all time favorite sandals. I wanted to have a shade of yellow and gold so I used my yellow satchel bag to pair with my sandals and a gold ring and gold eyeball bracelet. So how do I look?
