Thank you for the crazy memories, guys, gals, and gheys! Love you all *hugs* Some more crazy pictures are with my friends!! Posting them here, when they decided to upload ’em… I cannot wait for next season!

Photos by moi, Vince, and Jacob

EDIT: After doing this post, I miss fashion week, dressing up, and all these people I hanged out with… GUYS, IF YOU’RE READING THIS. Coffee, soon? I miss you all badly.

Are you confident enough?

Now these are the few times that I really wish I am a girl!

Yeah it doesn’t mean I’m gay that I want to be a girl. I have my exceptions though – clothes and shoes, all those straight men, and privileges like these. Haha! I’ve been talking to my college best friend, Hanna, that we’ve been thru crazy auditions as BFFs, but we think we cannot this time. How I wish I am a crazy girl right now :P

SO WHY NOT?! Why not go on a crazy week and do something outrageous everyday? Dress up like it’s Halloween (or Born This Way Ball, lolz) everyday. Talk to a complete stranger and sing Call Me Maybe. Walk in a straight line anywhere. Pretend that it’s your birthday. OR WHAT ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF SOMETHING CRAZY? What matters is the adventure you’ll get while doing it!

Rexona asks us, WHY NOT? So maybe Hanna and I will end up auditioning? WATCH OUT :P

Follow these simple steps above to join and have a chance to have the adventure of your lifetime AND take home 500 grand! NOW TELL ME WHY I DO NOT WISH I AM A GIRL RIGHT NOW!

Last Monday, just right before Independence day, along with some bloggers, we spent dinner at M Cafe with Rexona and Unilever Philippines to discuss this new crazy project. I tell you, the girls behind this were crazy too, I love them!

And speaking of crazy, I met up with two of my craziest and the bestest friends I’d ever had in college, too! Say hello to Hanna and Ella (who most prolly should join this contest!)

WHY NOT JOIN NOW! Deadline is on June 17 (THIS. SUNDAY. ALREADY.) To know more about this, like them on Facebook!

PhFW Holiday ’12: The Ramp – Crossings

DSC_0556

AND IT’S TIME FOR MY PHILIPPINE FASHION WEEK REVIEW! First show I saw this season, which also opened the whole week of fashion smorgasbord, is The Ramp – Crossings with Mixology.

1

2I love the suspenders, and how that kid’s so dapper! Mixology is all about mixing these bold and subtle prints with color!

3Mix the pantone of the year (Tangerine) with these light and pastel colors, and end with a slightly bolder color  for shoes.

6Ready for the holiday vacay?

10Plaid seems to be having a come back this year

12But neutrals are classics. Accentuate with colors and defining cuts

13

14Gold/chrome/copper/metal tones + prints

15Florals and animal prints are still fighting fierce this season, as it has been for the past couple of.

Boracay in Maginhawa!

DSC_0327

It was a sunny summer afternoon in Maginhawa. And a certain tea shop that goes by the name of Moonleaf held the summer party that ended all summer parties this year. Milk tea + bands + free photo booth and henna + TWO new tea flavors? What more can you ask for? OH YEAH — summer rain and dancing in it like nobody cares!

Globe Lumia 800 Launch at Beso

DSC_1187

Was invited at the launch of Nokia Lumia 800 for Globe Telecom at Beso in the newly opened Bonifacio High Street Central. The launch was filled with amazing giveaways — where I didn’t catch the number of phones being given away because of all the sangrias I had, but I do remember it’s more than 30 (oh gawd, Coy if you’re reading this please correct me, haha!)

Lumia 800 is the first Windows phone from Nokia which, despite my doubts, is very fast as Norbert from Windows himself demonstrated to me! It performs what a decent smartphone would deliver, but on an unexpected speed! You can get it from Globe free starting at Plan P1799!

Went to Young Star’s 16 x 16 exhibit at the Archaeology Wing of Powerplant Mall at Rockwell. The exhibit by 16 of the country’s budding artists (two collaborated for each piece) namely, BJ Pascual and Valerie Chua, Your Evil Twin and Paulina Ortega, Cholo Dela Vega and Kristine Caguiat, Tricia Gosingtian and Christian San Jose, Carina Santos and Hannah Reyes, Luis Santos and Joseph Pascual, and Gabby Cantero and Cj de Silva was to commemorate Young Star’s 16th anniversary.

I had, yet again, a mini-project running through my mind. I thought of getting everybody’s solo headshot. I used to do this in events, but you know how you get tired when something becomes a routine. So I kinda missed it and took everybody’s headshot…

Anyway, I think I’ll need to title this post as my Postura Day 1, but I know I can’t keep up to do this. Haha! Anyway, I just know we’ll keep on, and never tire supporting these Filipino brands, just as we are showing support for all these up and coming artists!

Weekender

DSC_1068

So last weekend didn’t feel any rest at all, neither work. So I guess, it is a party (haha corny part where I correlate the first photo to the first paragraph #fail) Anyway, we had a garage sale for a cause at Moonleaf Maginhawa. Jen, the ever-so-kabowg Twitter celebrity (nuks!) organized this.

Friends started to come and I think we did a pretty good job in selling, haha.  Saturday was really just starting, and as my friend told us, Moonleaf is where a day probably start or end. Wala lang gusto ko lang sabihin yun, ket ba? HAHA!

Then off we went to Cubao X for Hello Sailor, Tokwa Penaflorida and Soleil Ignacio’s art exhibit at Heima. I miss the olive scent Heima stores have, add to that their homey feel and familiar faces of friends dropping by.

We didn’t miss the opportunity to see the other ganap in the area. THE Clothing are launching their new line of shirts, and I Love You Store is just being that always awesome indie fashion shop that it is. Grabbed some new specs (for P250, it’s a steal!) at I Love You Store and drooled at a tank top that my friend got already (so most prolly I won’t buy it,arte lang.) But I still got my eyes on a shirt in THE, a couple of accessories and tops at I Love You Store. Yay for broke-ness… NOT!

So typically that’s how a staycation weekend looks like for me. Random activities + friends + booze + mainly Cubao X. I need to see an island soon, but I’m still having so much fun here in the city.

Are you in staycation as well? How’s your summer so far?
