Anything goes chick. I'm pretty much adventurous when it comes to my style. Besides, what's life without an adventure? Like one day I can be real girly, but the next I can be all rocker chic. I don't really just stick to one kind of look, being unique is the way to go nowadays—just like my style. I simply dress the way I do, no explanations needed, which is why I tend to be adventurous when it comes to making my fashionesque choices (unless my mood or the weather doesn't allow me to do so).
Shopping haven.
I can seriously shop anywhere. I always seem to find something at a store! But I usually hit up malls, especially Rockwell. When I'm there, I go to Topshop, Topman, Zara, Collezione C2, the Archeology area (which has great stores too), and Mango. Other shops I love going to are American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, H&M, and Forever 21. I can swear by those shops! They always have awesome stuff on hand!
Fave fashion designer.
Just naming one designer is a toughie, but if I were to give you my top five designers, they'd have to be Jeremy Scott, Karl Lagerfeld, Betsey Johnson, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang (in no specific order). Need I say more? But as for local designers, I love Rhett Eala's designs. They're so unique (which is why I had him design my prom dress)!
Never leave the house without...
Accessories. Accessories and even MORE accessories!
I go to fashion blogs such as and, wherein I scan through and even add looks of my own! Aside from blogs, I read A LOT of magazines, from Nylon, V, Vogue and i-D. Watching TV shows like Gossip Girl and 90210. These shows also inspire me cause certain characters really do dress up really well, like Jenny and Serena from Gossip Girl and Silver from 90210.
Style icon.
I adore Cory Kennedy!! It's like being fashionable for her is so effortless. I also like Taylor Momsen, 'cause her style is very rocker-esque, which is what I'm totally into right now. And other celebrities like the Olsen twins, Katy Perry, Sienna Miller, Amanda Bynes, Zooey Deschanel, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton.
Closet's color palette.
It's pretty much black and white for me. Though I do have colored stuff, but like bright colors (not quite neon, but not like dull colors) just to add a little kick to my outfit.
Never seen in...
Leggings/tights paired with a short top (like if it falls above the hips). It's just that I always knew that when one wears leggings/tights your top's gotta be below the hips.
Stylish three.
A plain white v-neck, an awesome pair of skinnies, and a little black dress.
Fashion comeback.
I know it's sort of coming back, but I love the '80s. It's the perfect mix of black, white, and a splash of color. And I know that denim, studs, and cute skirts were in then! I love how they used to layer, like an off-shoulder top with a tank under, with shorts, a hip belt and dope high cut sneakers! There's something about that era that's just so fun, youthful and carefree!
Vintage finds.
I remember raiding my grandmother's closet when she decided to move to the US. I was able to get Chanel, Christian Dior and Roberta Di Camerino bags, Christian Dior and Charles Jourdan pumps, just to name a few. And cool skirts and padded blazers. Of course some needed to be altered, which I did, so now it has a little me in them as well. As for my mom, she gave me her old Christian Louboutin heels and Gucci and Chanel bags, which I can't get enough of!

"Today, I Won"

I always caught feelings for someone, and hoped so much that one day there could a thing between the two of us. I'm usually the one that makes the effort to buy and/or make cute gifts, chats them every other day, and stays up all night with him.

When I was 16, my childhood crush suddenly came back into my life. We'd constantly send updates to each other, recommend favorite songs and talk even the most random things. He'd even text me as early as 6 to just greet me good morning almost everyday. I hoped so much that when I confessed, he suddenly stopped talking to me.

For short, he ghosted me. Those 6 months I spent talking to him, allotting my time for him, and staying up until 3 am for him - all gone in a simple confession. Although I had a few crushes before him, he's the only one that got me in real pain. It was the kind of pain that I never thought I'd experience. It was the kind of pain that I couldn't believe.


After 7 years (it happened back in 2017), I thought he came back into my life to stay, but I guess he's just one of the guys who distanced. I felt a complete loser that time. But during this quarantine, everything was different. I caught feelings for someone else, but he treated me with the best kindness yet.

It happened at 2 am, May 30, 2020, when I impulsively confessed my feelings through messaging him. After saying my feelings, he responded with genuine and kind words. We both even complimented each other. Although the feelings didn't reciprocate, I still found a connection that can't be replaced with any guy.

To my 16 year old self, here I am, 18 and happy. You may have felt that time was the biggest regret and loss, but I'm here to tell you, we won. Today, I won.


Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.


5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
