(Everything from Forever 21) Hype this look on Lookbook here.
Outfit inspired by one of my fashion icons, Kato Miliyah. ViVi November 2011 had a few tips for autumn trends and rock styling (which I’m slowly warming up to again).
And… the Forever 21 Philippines brand ambassadors are back!
David Guison for 21Men, Patricia Prieto for Heritage 1981, Danah and Stacy Gutierrez for Forever 21 Plus, Lissa Kahayon and I for Forever 21. I adore this photo of us for a number of reasons: Firstly, no one has the same hair color. Secondly, this particular Forever 21 bunch is just so perfect I don’t even
So glad we finally had a proper reunion after so long. The last time we were all in the same event was last summer for the Forever 21 SM Makati opening. Oh, wait, Bloggers United! (next one will be December 3rd but sadly I have other plans that day so I can’t participate, but the other GGs will be there for sure)
Gondo Girls represent - make-up artist Marj Sia and painter/illustrator Valerie Chua. These good friends of mine are no doubt two of the most diligent Forever 21 fans ever - they’re always around whenever there’s a 3-day sale and they always end up getting the best deals!
Speaking of 3-days sales, I think you should stop reading my lulzy blog at this moment and head over to Megamall right now before stocks run out!

With David, Lissa and Patricia. We’ve been together since the beginning of the whole brand ambassadors concept - it’s so fun to see how we’ve all changed for the better or remained our silly old selves since then.
Err… I think I changed the most. /points to crazy blonde hair
Forever 21’s resident “love team” David and Lissa. Don’t they look so cute together? We spent most of the night being kilig because of their chemistry! My boyfriend and I dropped these two off at the nearest Starbucks after the party, and we couldn’t help but giggle the whole time.
Forever 21’s second “couple” - Photographer-model tandem, The Patricias! I had the opportunity to photograph her for Glitterati last December and I can’t wait to photograph her again because she’s such an inspiring angel to work with.
Coincidentally, we were both wearing green contact lenses that night! Brain twins!
And of course two of my most favorite bloggers in the whole world, the real twins, Danah and Stacy . They’ve been all over my blog since I first met them and they are just the most darling, most confident girls ever. My personal best-dressed pick goes to Stacy for wearing her black bodycon dress backwards - so innovative!
And we all got together again because of the BDO Forever 21 MasterCard! Last Wednesday, October 12, Forever 21 and MasterCard officially launched their newest treat at Prive Luxury Club at The Fort. If you want to know more about the features, benefits, etc. of this card, continue reading here.
Before I finish this entry, many thanks to Jane Kingsu-Cheng for bringing us all back together. What a happy night to rembember. <3
Is in Candy magazine again! The shoot was last September and they invited some of Manila’s influential fashionistas for a feature that will come out later this year. It’s really something to look forward to! Bumped into Lissa Kahayon, Rosanna Aranaz, Camille Co and Boop Yap, among others. Sadly, I was the last one to arrive so I wasn’t able to take photos with them.
Asian poses with Charles Buenconsejo (who was the photographer for Preview’s Creative It List which I was part of 2 years ago, and who is also one of my favorite local photographers) and stylist Margaux Romero.
Spent the whole of November (my birthday included) in a basic management program at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM). The school and my classmates surprised me with some lovely chocolate cake.
Chicosci’s What’s Your Poison? MV is coming very soon. It’s going to be mind-blowing and a lot different from the usual that we see on local television. Heard the first edit was shown at one of their recent gigs.
Yay for my third official music video appearance - the first one being Pedicab’s Ang Pusa Mo and the second being the recent Ely Buendia Wasak Waltz video. Or fourth, if I count the one with Stories of Now.
In the meantime, I bring you teaser photos.
(from my brother’s closet plaid polo with a hood, Mango denim shorts, Doc Martens, Forever 21 cross necklace)
With JMAUPM people and Zack, one of the speakers. (Also… I see you photobombing there.)
Thank you so much to everyone who went to UP Manila earlier for my talk on Contemporary Marketing Strategy (a.k.a. how to market yourself online a.k.a. blogging tips a.k.a. me just blurting out random things). Wasn’t able to blog about the details here unlike my previous talk for UP AdCore, so I didn’t expect so many people to attend and have their photos taken with me. Much love, UPM!

Finally got to visit CSB’s new SDA building for the first time for Ryan’s class’ photography finals as part of a panel of sorts with Rev, and Ryan himself. Played with the 10-22mm lens on my 350D… because everyone dreams of having insanely long legs minus the hassle of post-processing.
I wish people took photography (and studying, in general) more seriously though, especially if you have the privilege to study somewhere costly and even in such a pretty building with all the equipment you can use. :)
Was at last night’s What’s In Your Bag? exhibit opening (albeit briefly because it was so hot and humid) at Greenbelt 5. Thanks to Rev Naval and Dan Matutina for the quirky photo and the graphic design!
Bumped into so many friends that night, but I had my hands full with my bag, some magazines (thanks Ramon!), an artbook (Thanks Jason!) and shoes (Thanks Jan!) that I wasn’t able to take out my camera and take photos of everyone. Fortunately, my cousin Mark came to the rescue!
No post is ever complete without Saab. <3
a) with Saab and Garovs b) yet another photo of me and Saab c) with Nyko d) with Jason and Saab
I always bump into Adrianne and his Longchamps, looking fabulous every time. Also, I don’t tell people to do asian poses with me. It just happens.
And then Mark, RA, the two Jasons and I posed as a fake band since all the guys were wearing black shirts and I was the only one in white.
The SDA Project kids. You guys are so cute.
a) with Nico, Team Manila’s marketing manager b) Flash bang! With Daniel the Red Mango photographer who is always everywhere.
a) with Jowee, one of the founders of Team Manila b) with Brendan who always takes photos of me but this is the first time that we have a photo together (yay)
Obligatory wide-angle photo with Jun. We share the same birthday. /random trivia
Check the exhibit out while it’s still up!
Pretty much spent most of my time deliberating on which rings to get from Bijoux, while convincing the owner to totes accept card payments in the future. He had a reasonable spiel to justify why that would be highly unlikely though. Aww.
On a related note, today just proved how difficult it is to find rings that fit my skinny fingers. And how popular my cross connector ring from F21 is even though it’s way too big on me (I’m wearing it in the profile picture in my sidebar).
Crissey finally got the same liquid foundation and powder from Revlon’s new Photo Ready line that I’ve been using and raving about for the past month or two. <3
Trissey. <3 We wore the same shorts today without planning it.
LOL @ height difference. ILU CRISSEY.
Obligatory Blue Roast 2010 group photo/s. BFA Information Design kids (minus a few people who sat with their non-ID friends and those who couldn’t go) + Sir Ali and Fr. Javellana. These are some of the most amazing people I have ever met.
