My style. Vintage-meets-modern; I'm a chameleon when it comes to fashion. I like mixing trends to create new ones.
Shopping musts. My mom usually gives me clothes since she sells clothes, but I usually shop in various stores like Forever21, Jellybean, department stores, online shops, and even thrift shops!
Style Icon. Undoubtedly, Camille Co and Vern and Verniece Enciso. I keep visiting their blogs! For Camille, I like how she's very fashion-forward and how she incorporates several trends, while with Vern and Verniece, I like how they play with modern style and how they stay true to their styles. I love them!
Style influenece. Being in front of a lot of people while growing up has pushed me to be more stylish and fashion forward since a lot of people see me. The bloggers, my friends, and the fashion trends all influence my style.
Closet's color palette. My closet palette ranges from neutral to neon colors. I think I have the colors of the rainbow in my closet. I like to keep my closet interesting with pieces in different colors.
Fave accessory. My vintage Casio watch and necklaces! I'm still caught up with the trend of sporting bulky, metal necklaces!
Never say never. I'm willing to try wearing different trends, so I think there's nothing I can say that I will never be caught wearing.
Trendy return. Definitely the 80s. I love how striking their outfits were back then but I think trends always come back, so anytime soon it might make a big comeback.
Best bargain buy. My blue booties! They originally cost P2,000 but since they were on sale, it was down to 200 pesos! Such a steal!
Vintage loving. My gold dragon necklace was a gift from my dad and it's the same age as I am—17 years old.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
