They’re going to better places

I had the big chop.

I was nervous. I wasn’t sure if a pixie cut would suit me. My salon would style it, of course, but I had no idea if I could pull it off on a daily basis. Plus, I was comfortable with braiding and curling and styling my long hair. I’ve always had long hair, save for that one time in high school when I tried cutting my hair short myself, and those few months from late 2009 to early 2010 when I had an apple bob right before I started this blog.

But I needed a change. Continue reading →

oh yeah, I’m looking at the sun

oh yeah I'm looking at the sunShades, Punya. Blue blouseDEI. Lace tank. Jeans,  Jag. Brown leather bag, Celine. Necklace and bracelet from my mom’s dresser.

It’s looking to be an extremely hot summer, but thank goodness for the human invention called the sunglasses.

The other day I was at People are People looking at sunglasses and fell in love with a pair. It was rather pricey, though, so I put it down and decided to buy it next time (if it was still there). About an hour later as I was browsing the new stuff at Punya, I saw an almost identical pair… except the hue was blue instead of black, and it was half the price.

That’s the best “except” I’ve written in a while, yes? Yes! It fits nicely on my nosebridge, and my eyelashes don’t reach it.  Oh, thank God! That’s always been my problem with shades and glasses. The one down side of having long eyelashes 🙁

Needless to say, I bought the shades. It costs P150, in case anybody’s wondering.

Oh I want the truth to be known

blue blouse from DEIBlue blouse, DEI. Necklace from my mom’s dresser.

For the record: blue is my favorite color.

I might be wearing many different colors of clothes, but blue is my favorite color.

And just because I don’t think I say it in this blog enough, I’m going to say it again. Blue is my favorite color.

There. Glad we’re on the same page. Moving on.

This blouse was a gift from Hazel of DEI. It’s named Brielle in their catalogs. I think it was made for a skinny person (or at least the model in the catalog was skinny), but I think it fits well for us non-skinny people, too. I like how comfy and flowing and girly the material is! And the print is nice. Not too loud, but not too plain, either.

Thank you so much for this, Hazel! I must go back to DEI again and look at their new stuff. Hehehe.

This is my first taste of DEI. A friend gave one to each of the singers in our whole band. I got a teal one, some got maroon. After seeing how this looked on me, I immediately loved DEI. The West Ave branch is the first place I place I had a shopping spree—yes, a shopping spree. I think I spent P1000 there. Haha! But I think this is still my favorite piece from there.

On a side note: I CAN TIE MY HAIR BACK AGAIN! Yey!

Green blouse, DEI, West Avenue, P200? I can’t remember anymore.

So. I remember now why Project365 is a challenge. And I’m not even a month in. Haha! I think I better plan my posts. Last weekend’s trip really made me late and stuff. But I press on!!!!

Today I wore this green top. (I’m not sure if it’s a blouse or a shirt.) It isn’t very corporate-y, but I wore it anyway because all my other clothes were in the laundry. I bought it in the West Avenue branch of DEI when they had one of their season sales.

About the photo
Before going home, I asked our resident photographer to help me shoot because I tired my brains out today. and, darn it, I LOVE THIS SHOT. If only I had a better camera to do him justice.

I think I need to trim my hair.
