Obsessed with my new tulle skirt from New York designer Alexandra Grecco! 6 layers of tulle AND fully lined. It’s so hard to find good quality tulle skirts nowadays. I’ve always wanted one that was also long enough to cover my knees. Anything for that full princess effect. I think I want it in other colors too.
I tried to style it with Carrie Bradshaw in mind, but opted to make the look more casual/wearable (and less ballerina) with a statement tee and some slip-ons. Of course, I couldn’t help but inject some sort of pink in there.
So many things to do, so little time. I’ve been so busy lately that I can’t be bothered to go to any kind of salon as often as I used to. I’m itching to change my hair color again, but haven’t had time to visit the nearest Status Salon yet!
Anyhow, thank heavens for Japanese gel nail salons because my nails can last me a whole month without any chipping or damage. They are definitely more low maintenance than regular polish, albeit a lot more pricey. You get what you pay for though.
I still go to Kiyosa for my nails, but I heard there are other nailists popping up in the metro recently! 2014 has definitely been a good year for Japanese beauty/lifestyle in the Philippines. Good times.
Kiyosa’s selection of colors and styles! Thinking of choosing something other than pink or nude next month. “BER” season is right around the corner, so I’ll probably do Christmas shades soon.
I’m super predictable when it comes to nail polish colors! I rarely go for bright, striking, or neon shades, and this also reflects on my personal style as well. I have yet to go out of my comfort zone when it comes to anything loud and conspicuous.
Rieko-san working on my short nails! While you can maximize designs with longer nails, keeping my nails short and square is a personal preference. :D
Otona-poi S/S nails with daisies on my index fingers and little fingers. On the middle of each flower is a little gold charm! I also asked them to place a subtle pearl accent on my middle fingers.
My nails on the upper left, and the Kiyosa staff’s nails. Everything here is drawn manually (no stickers or stamps used here!), so you can just imagine how steady their hands are!
3 weeks ago was such an ideal time to visit and take photos because most of them have just changed their nails. No nail growth yet!
The 2014 Tatt Awards night was held at SMX Convention Center last August 8, 2014. The annual Tatt Awards recognize social media figures who have “shaped the online world”. There are 11 varying categories, with 5 nominees each. The public decides the nominees, and with the guidance of 9 individuals from the Tatt Council, they also determine the winners through voting.
“The exemplary contribution of the Tatt Awards winners to the online community is a true indication of inspiring individuals who continue to aim for greatness which Tattoo truly advocates even down to products and services. Their immense passion to express themselves online gives us the motivation to continuously improve and provide the best tool for all customers to access the web and spark change.”, said Gilbert Simpao, SVP for Tattoo Broadband Business.
I was nominated for Best Style Blog/Microblog this year! With the support of my followers, friends and family, I ended up with the highest votes in my category. I rarely go to these kinds of events, but the dream looked slightly more attainable this time, thanks to everyone’s help. <3
James Reid opened the event with a dance number. His outfit reminded me so much of EXO’s and Kisumai’s bandanna skirts, haha
The lovely Bianca Gonzalez and dashing Drew Arellano were the hosts.

What’s a homage to ’90s fashion without an oversized denim jacket and chunky platform boots?
My first introduction to this kind of outerwear was when I was about 7. My mom got me my first denim jacket, and I loved it because it had Looney Tunes characters embroidered on it. 19 years have passed and I never knew what happened to it, but I really wish it were still around.
This sort of thinking has led me into becoming the kind of person that always has a hard time letting go of old clothes. I’m always hoping that I can still wear them 5, 10, 15 years down the line. I just need Santa to give me bigger closet space.
