Worldwide Giveaway: Swirls and Scribbles X THBoxes



My style. You can see more on my lookbook. Fan and Hype! :)

I will start my post with a quote from Alexander McQueen:

 "It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together."

What’s my fashion statement? Well I think, for me fashion is being comfortable in what you wear. As long as I love and enjoy what I wear, I don’t care what people may think. My style would depends on the weather, my mood or whatever I would see on my closet. I am a layback person. I dress for comfort. I love wearing dresses, shorts, skirts and leggings. I am not a fan of jeans. Haha We have a love-hate relationship. Why? Because every time I gain extra pounds, my thighs would complain about my jeans. Haha (sikip sikip daw sabi ng pata ko or in English, my thighs are getting fat, I need to start working out or cut some carbs again) So that’s why I enjoy dresses and leggings more often. If only, it is always cold in our country or if we have winter, I will have a lot of fun layering clothes. Too bad, we could only wear summer clothes for several months. But if I will stay in an air-conditioned room for the whole day, there is a chance of a little action of layering. Moreover, I can’t classify my fashion statement, one day I am a rocker chic, tomorrow I can be sophisticated and classy or the next day might be boohoo chic. I am experimental and adventurous. I don’t want to be labeled.

Anyways, I have gathered some photos. Check out my picks for an outfit.

Color blocking is so in even in shoes and oh! i love spikes! they add spunk in the outfit.

Classy with a little sprinkle of bad ass at the same time. Those Leopard collar necklace are to die for!

Simple yet elegant, especially with the Queen Austrian's Necklace. It fits for a queen like us. hihi

Are they gorgeous? I love fashion and being comfortable at the same time. How about you? What's your fashion statement?

What are you waiting for? Time to shop for new outfits for 2013.I am starting mine now. Leggo!
I have been blogging since Tabulas days. I have never taken it seriously until 2011 or 2012 arrived. Last year opened a lot of doors in my blogging career (Ano daw? Haha Career talaga? Hahaha). I also encountered some personal problems. You know life, she always bombards us with challenges to help us grow and make adulthood thrilling.

A screenshot from our video chat, before his operation. He was in the hospital that time. :)

Moreover, the start of 2012 was something to remember, my hunny got sick and he undergone major operation. His gallbladder burst and poof! It became coco crunch. Haha Kidding. I don’t know how to explain it with the medical terms, basta his gallbladder was removed. So here I am, best supporting girlfriend. I am so caring and lavin. Haha Anyways, thinking of the things I did last year is so hard. I have amnesia. I am amnesia girl. Hahaha Wait... Let me think.
Remember my old blog layout?

So here it is a recap. Last year, I finally gave in and made an account on Lookbook and Twitter. I got addicted to twitter and got a blackberry from globe. Then, I revamp the layout of my blog. It increased my blog’s page views. I bought a domain name. It gave me more opportunities on blogging like exchange links, paid post, Zalora brand ambassador, product reviews, freebies, collaborations, sponsorship and affiliates. I am so glad and very thankful for trusting me and becoming a part of my blogging experience.

PFW with Cecil.
Photoshot with Bruno. :)

I attended my first ever Philippine Fashion Week with my high school friend, Cecil. We were so lucky to be invited for VIP seat. It was fun. Then, Bruno arrived, our wonder dog. He is our stress reliever and really became part of our la familia. Of course! How will I ever forget my BC Blogger family, they are one of a kind and kept on dealing with my blog whatever I have been posting. Thank you so much. I feel like I have known them in person by reading their blogs. It feels like I belong to a wonderful community. They are friendly and supportive. Join now. Hehe

For random days, we visit Tagaytay, Cavite and Batangas once in a while. For the December, I was invited to go to Balai, Isabel for a birthday celebration. I haven’t blog it yet. I will post a separate blog post for it.

Hello everyone! I am back to blogging. I was in a hiatus for a week or almost 2 weeks. I thought it was like months.hahaha I’ve already missed blogging stuffs already. I have a long list of backlogs. Yes! As always, I have a lot of it. I was supposed to blog during the Christmas and New Year vacation unfortunately, I was a little not feeling well. I have been sneezing, coughing and my nose keeps on running away from me. Jk I mean runny nose. Then, on the New Year’s Eve or I think the day before it, I don’t have any appetite. I felt throwing up all the food I was eating or pooping it. Hihi SShhh.. I have diarrhea, I think. I don’t have any I idea where it came from. Someone told me, I might have hard time digesting the food in my stomach. I was so sad, you want to know why? Because our Media Noche will always have the best food in town, due to the not-so-good-feeling I hesitate to eat too much. (tikim tikim lang hihi) I am thankful that I felt good while waiting for 2013 to come. The next day, I have the worse feeling again. Boo-hu-hu! I was on a sick leave for my first day of work. I kept on praying, drinking getoride, eating less and I feel good now! Wooot! Thank you Lord. 

Enough of my sickness during the holidays, it is time for the things I did during the vacay! Too much photos! Ready? Set-Go!

My Christmas vacation started with my grandfather's 79th birthday! Wee.. Thank you Lord for his good health and i wish him more more birthday to come. We love you so much!


The Christmas Eve. Our miniature Christmas tree with abundant gifts for my love ones. My grandma texted me the day before we arrived, she told me she haven't bought a larger tree because she was sick for a few days. Then, when we arrived in Cavite, I got sick too. huhu I told her it's okey, then I set up our mini Christmas tree.


Little Sarah, my cousin slash God-child. hehe Lovin' the background. Bokeh Effect with my 50mm macro lens from my loving hunny. hihi Thank you!


Me. Excuse my hair, hahaha This was taken after attending the Midnight mass.


Christmas day. Exchange gifts! I got an Aldo watch from my mom and Kamiseta bangles from my sister. Love it all! Plus the prayer book my grandparents gave me. (not included in the photo.)


Ansaveh ni Georgina Wilson sa calendar na 'to?? hahahaha My gift for my grandparents, I made them a personalized calendar from Fotosnap. And yes! I am that gurl. May is my birthday month. Kaya ako ang bida.

The stuff I got from my secret santa in our office. The final gift was a book, "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky. I finished reading it during the New Year's Eve. I will post a book review for it soon. Stay tuned.


Happy 2013. Fireworks at our backyard.

My uncle ready to chopped it all of! I will say sorry for all the vegans out there. Just enjoying the season of holidays. hihi

I spent my vacation with my family as always. I am thankful for everything. God is really good. He will never let us down.

My vacation was for relaxation and quality time with my love ones. I am glad I have a chance to do it amidst of the busy life in the corporate world. I am hoping 2013 will help me follow my dreams and achieve my goals in life.

To be continued... My year end post will be next... :)
