got an awesome invitation from lovely guys over at LuisaViaRoma to join the Firenze4ever Second Edition but unfortunately couldn´t make it.
it would have been the loveliest birthday present if it pushed through.
well, my dad always said, if it wasn´t meant to be, it wasn´t meant to be. SIGH.

i´m kinda shy to post about my christmas gifts. you would think i am a spoiled brat for getting everything i wished for. :) what did you get?

thank you very much life. you suck.

anyway, i wish everyone HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

blouse with lace back, tights and ring: H&M * leather shorts and xl clutch: vintage * gold cuff: Urban Outfitters * booties: Jeffrey Campbell Lita in Multi Glitter * watch: Michael Kors

  • i really wish people didn´t procastinate on gift shopping like i do every year.
  • finally made it to watch harry potter in the cinema. made me realize the book is ONE THOUSAND BAJILLION TIMES better but the film was awesome nevertheless. i am re-reading the last book now as i remembered very little to nothing while watching the film.
  • 4 degrees is like summer in my book.
  • perseverance really pays. i manage to get 2 more of these litas while checking solestruck every single day. a brownie for you if you guess which colors i picked!
  • 7 days before christmas and my tree is finally standing! better late than never!
PS: please bear with me guys. once the stressful holiday season is finished, i will be resuming regular posting (and email responding, OOPS!).

princess dress: Lanvin ♥ H&M * tights: Primark * pumps: H&M * watch: Michael Kors

  • felt like a real princess in this dress last night.
  • realized suede shoes (faux or real) are a pain in the ass to clean.
  • dj-ing is not my thing. i was pressing next after 5 seconds of the song because i didn´t like the rhythm. you know how many BOOs i got from the audience. LOL
  • i will never party again. (have i said that the last time? OOPS!)
  • hangovers are a BITCH.

rachel zoe would say, BANANAS!

READER´S REQUEST: daily make-up

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

i am really not a make-up guru or something so when i get emails from readers asking what kind of make-up i use, i get flattered.
because this lady doesn´t even use a foundation or knows the difference between all the 1438695 kinds of make-up brushes.

here´s my simple daily make-up routine. a result of years of experimenting and testing stuff.

1. moisturizer from Kiehl´s (not pictured)
2. make-up primer from Sephora
3. touche eclat from YSL for hiding not-so-pretty stuff like eyebags you know
4. face powder from Chanel
5. perfume, Miss Dior Cherie (i have used Daisy by Marc Jacobs for like forever but gotten sick of it.)
6. blush from MAC (PINCH ME) and Nars (ORGASM)
7. dip liner from H&M (best i have used so far, i´ve tried expensive ones too)
8. lip balm from Burt´s Bees
9. red lipstick, H&M x Lanvin (obsessed about this at the moment!)

when i go out partying, i use some mascara (mine is from YSL too, not pictured) and attempt to create smoky eyes from an eyeshadow palette i got from MAC.

so there you go.
now it´s your turn, i wanna see your daily staples too!

buy a tote, help save the children.

since it´s christmas and everybody is in the spirit of giving and doing something good (READ THIS SANTA),
i am writing this post with a theme that is very close to my heart.
seeing and experiencing the HUGE garbage problem in my beloved country, the Philippines, has been a real nightmare for me for 19 years.
and the urge to do something (in my own little way) to change this grows bigger and bigger each day.
these totebags from H&M are super cheap 2,95 each (and you can use it 139857892 times!) and 30% of the proceeds go to UNICEF.
when i go grocery shopping or gift shopping, i don´t buy or ask for a bag. i always use these tote bags which are a staple in my handbag.
instead of gifting your friend another useless piece of schnick- schnack, why don´t you give her this?
i know your FAB friend will love this 5preview tote!

shirt dress and red lipstick: H&M x Lanvin * blazer: Zara * faux fur coat: H&M Trend * boots: YSL

hey guys!
yay i am alive!
thanks for all the emails and tweets asking how i am. i am utterly fine though pretty stressed at work.
working in sales during christmas time can get pretty cray-cray.
anyway, the weather has been catastrophic the last days so outdoor shoots were impossible!
but as long as i have my faithful faux fur coat with me, i am always game!
how are we doing with gifts?
i still have NONE. yay me!
and our christmas party is on saturday and still no dress in sight.
am i doomed or am i doomed?
