Day in the Life of Candy
Archive for the 'Blogroll' Category
When it comes to trying out something for the first time, I’m almost always excited, happy, anxious, and just a little nervous and I think most people have felt the same way at least once. In recent weeks I’ve been blessed enough to be able to do and try things for the very first time. Some of them seemed a little scary at first but I’m glad I never said no, not once. In fact, these firsts of mine have become my happy thoughts on not so good days. Before I blab on too much, here’s the reason I’ve been quite giddy lately…
I was able to meet both Troian Bellisario and Partick Adams thanks to this oh-so-awesome job. The cherries on top of it all? I was able to take these photos with them and even work with one of them. How cool is that?
I got to style my very first fashion editorial! It was such a great experience and I can’t wait to share more of it! For now, just keep logging on to Candy to see what I’m talking about.
With the March issue out, I was able to see and feel my very first article on the magazine with Macy and Patty! It’s a definite bonus that I had loads of fun looking for really cool fashion and beauty sites. Want to see more of the web special? Make sure to grab a copy (forgive my shameless plugs hehe).
Speaking of Macy and Patty, here we are at the Candy Staff shoot—my first ever since I joined the team back in July of last year! It was super fun getting all dolled up with my favorite girls.
Lastly, I had the pleasure of contributing to one of the sites I constantly visit. What I liked about it was that I was able to write about something I’ve really been into lately—sneakers!
Those five are definitely on top of my list of happy thoughts lately and they keep me thinking positive. If you’re not having a good day, week, or month, try listing down all the things that make you happy and think about what you wanna do for the first time and go for it! I promise you, a smile will magically appear on your face.
Ever since I started to learn how to put on makeup (thanks to my oh-so-helpful and pretty cousins), I’ve been slowly but surely getting interested in the world of beauty…products. From all the cute makeup products to informative and pretty beauty blogs to fun hair tutorials, I’ve definitely been a sucker for anything that can help a girl look her best.
Which is why I was definitely excited to attend the BYS Spring and Summer collection launch because I would be able to feed my hunger for everything beauty! My favorite part of the event? We were able to play around with the entire collection first hand! We even had our own little makeup stations for us to apply and tinker around with all the lipsticks, eyeshadows, bronzers, and many more.
Here’s a few photos to sum up this fun-filled, makeup day!

Blush and lipsticks galore

I wanted to take it all home!
One thing I get excited about when another year starts is getting a brand new planner and I’m pretty sure some of you can relate to this. With this comes the daunting yet fun task of picking which one to choose. In the recent years I somehow gravitated towards the more plain and generic but still very practical planners. It may sound funny talking about planners “in-depth” but I just absolutely love pens, papers, post-its, books, and whatever else you can find inside a bookstore since I was still a little girl. I may not be too good at crafting things and DIY projects but I sure do love them.
Anyways, getting back to my planner. This year I chose a very plain one with a Kraft board cover. I particularly liked how it resembled my outlook for the start of the years—somehow blank with not much expectations, just waiting to see whats to unfold. Although after seeing countless planners in fun prints and bright colors, I got a little bit jealous and actually thought of replacing my initial one.
I shared my little dilemma with Macy and thanks to her love for crafts, she suggested I decorate it instead and I immediately agreed! And thus begins my planner’s journey to a more colorful, crafty world…
Couldn’t be happier with my planner! I now can’t wait to make tons and tons of plans for the upcoming year. Also, I will now always look at my 2013 planner and know that there is always room to change and improve.
Have a happy week, girls!
Well…that’s if you count photoshopped ones?
Back in College, my Photoshop teacher gave me the task to create a photo from scratch. Her specific instructions were to edit a photo with me and my celebrity crush in a place I’d love for us to visit! It was a no brainer Ian Somerholder + Me + Paris=my personal heaven on earth! Finding this photo amidst browsing through my saved Multiply albums had me laughing for about 5 minutes straight and it definitely made my week. I mean, how can you not love that smoldering look? Since I’ll probably only meet Ian in my dreams, this photo is definitely the next best thing!
Haven’t met your #1 crush yet? Try editing a photo with them just like mine! Don’t worry, with all the different apps and websites available to edit photos, you can create dream photos without the help of photoshop.
Just like that, it’s already December and Christmas is just a few weeks away! I don’t know about you, but Christmas always gets me in a good mood. Maybe it’s all the pretty lights and trees? or maybe it’s all the presents? or maybe it’s the excuse to see friends and family and eat like there’s no tomorrow? Okay, come to think of it, it’s all of the above! Either way, I can’t wait for all the up coming festivities! For now though, I think I’ll just have to keep dreaming of my Christmas wish list and hope the real Santa Claus is out there reading my blog post.
Here’s a little collage of all the things I would love to magically appear underneath my tree…
1. Lady Danger lipstick from MAC. Tried it on once and I’ve been thinking of it ever since!
2. Skechers Plus 3 Raise the Bar wedged sneakers. I badly want a pair in my closet…now! They’re just so cute!
3. High waisted bikini (stained glass bikini from Topshop). I try to go to the beach every chance I get and I’m always on the hunt for a new bikini!
4. Unicorn ring from Boticca. I feel naked without a ring and I just need this in my life.
5. Camo jacket from Topshop. I’ve never been one to sport the menswear trend but I’m willing to give it a shot with this uber cool jacket.
6. Polka dot leather wallet from Luluguinness. My bag is calling out for this oh-so-chic wallet!
7. Acid wash backpack from Topshop. This is a must for all my adventures!

I'm not a K-Pop fan and I've never watched any Koreanovelas, so when my friends decided to go to Korea for our next barkada trip, I was only moderately excited. But after spending...
