Vanity and all that jazz..

Okay, let the rabbit-peeping-teeth-challenge begin...

all of a sudden, I thought I was someone else...


Triptych

Fierce.

Love my lipstick? Ask first if it's real.

The mandatory mirror shot.



So young, so serene.

DIY hippie headband.

I don't have someone to take my photographs so instead I just did it myself.
Just like the old times.
I still don't have a decent tripod.
But nevertheless, it is more fun to hold the camera 'cause you can do whatever you want, you can choose whichever angle you want.
Again, sucks to be me, I have short arms which makes it hard for me to stretch my arms and hence,
hola to close-up shots.

I just recently release my SUCRESTONE collection which consists of remade shorts.
Just please check it out.
One piece per item only so don't ever miss it out.
Go check it out as soon as you can.
Love.

I want to try an outdoor shoot with some friends or with my cousins.
I just want to try something.
I use to hate my kit lens but recently, since I am bumming here in our home,
I checked out some of its settings and internalize on what I can make out of my kit lens.
I just have to do this before I get really busy.
But whatever...
God please help me.

Have a good night y'all. Keep safe! <3

Trigger



Invade my privacy



Top 10 food that describes me most:

1. Jamaican Pattie Forever.

2. DQ's strawberry banana blizzard.

3. Salt and pepper squid.

4. Takoyaki and siomai.

5. Pork ball congee.

6. Barbecue.

7. Plain rice.

8. Fondant.

9. Pomodoro.

10. 3 Musketeers.


Well, this just randomly came off my mind today.
My blog has been experiencing my absence lately and it might miss it more this coming month and the next two months.
You know how this internship thingy makes my fussy and stressed.
It haven't started yet but processing it makes me feel unsecured, nervous and tired.
At the same time, I am juggling it with my shop's errands.
God, I have to go.

XOXO

Denim, studs and pixie dust




I am now working on my remade shorts project and I am looking forward to the success of this project.
I have bought some of the materials yesterday already and I have one left missing in my list, the most important and the essence of this project, the shorts.
I will ransack thrift shops tomorrow and hopefully find a lot of goof stuff.

I still have to work on things.. Ta-ta!

Hold onto this lullaby even when the music's gone





(Was listening to T.H.E. by Will.I.Am Ft. J.Lo and Mick Jagger while post processing the photos and making this entry. Just sayin. I just love how these photos shows a lot of movement and that it makes me wanna dance plus the song I am listening to is so groovy.)

This just shows how my love loves to dance.

Me: You are a good dancer, I am a good singer and you are a bad singer, I am a bad dancer.

Him: I just don't know how to sing but that doesn't mean I am bad at it.

Me: Same goes to my dancing.

Him: *straight face*


We had a mini-shoot today in our garage.
I just suddenly felt missing the old times.
I was rummaging in some of my files the other day 'cause I was planning to give him a DIY valentine present but we have no new pictures for the past 3 months and I am so frustrated 'cause I really wanna surprise him. So instead, I just made a full- Tagalog letter. It was so hard to translate some words 'cause I am really not that much of a fan of deep Tagalog words but know what, I am now starting to be one. Hrhr.
So back to the mini-shoot,
I am really happy. Those are real smiles, actually they're laughs.
We were really laughing hard because the camera was set on self-timer and we need to pose within the 2 second gaps and I was trying to climb up in his back but he can't stand to carry me 'cause he was laughing so hard.
I am super happy 'cause he is now getting deep in knowing my camera.
Before, his shots were so, umm, out of focus.
I taught him some of the tricks and some of the settings in the camera and now he's getting used to it.
I was surprised today 'cause all his shots are great and that he doesn't ask for my help anymore.
It is now smooth to work with him. Not like before, we stop per shot.
Now, he clicks the shutter button as continuously as fuck.
I am the one who is running out of poses and facials.
Kudos to my one and only. *I love you*

Thanks for the chocolates, love.
And you are welcome for the Pomodoro I made for you. Isn't it the yummiest?
I love you.

*End of cheesiness here*

Crosshatch



No school today so basically I am bored.
Since I wasn't able to buy some stuff for my next project today 'cause the weather is freaking awful which makes me feel lazy to leave our house, I just ransacked my closet and looked for whatever I can use and hence, this.

Why would I end up being the bad one?

March project

I was planning to make this since last year when I got fond of making DIYs.
But due to scarcity of funds, well... that explains everything already.
So just in time for summer and before I get deployed for my internship,
I would like to make at least a pair or three of these re-made shorts.


I don't really have a talent in sewing plus I don't have a sewing machine.
So I am now collaborating with our local tailor and was asking them a lot of questions about the possibilities of making this project.
I will be starting my hunt for high waist denim shorts this week and hopefully score a piece or two by the end of next week.

I will still consult my adviser/ boyfriend if I should sell it online or should just keep it for myself.

Will update you soon.

Ta-ta!

Week 2: Earthbound



Yes, this blouse is from my Wanderer collection and it is one of my favorites.

Everything about this look is neutral.
All of the colors are so earthy.
This blouse is super oversize but it falls perfectly on my body.
I cannot think of anything to pair with this other than my pair of platform from Nava.

Top, thrifted

Love Atmosphere

I wasn't really fussy about the Valentine rush and all that.
These days, you'll see a lot of couples everywhere.
In the streets, malls, restaurants, LRT, jeepneys and I certainly mean, everywhere.
I am not alone but it seems like I kinda hate the fact that Valentine's Day is almost upon us.
Why pressure? If you can make everyday a Valentine's Day for you both? Right?
No, I am not hating just because me and my boyfriend will not spend Valentine's Day together.
He has been asking me, what do I want to do, where do I want to go, but I turned him down.
Because there are a lot of things to be done and we have a lot of school works to prioritize.
I told him that we could just spend it some other time 'cause I want him to finish all his school works.
But know what?
It was kinda awful to make him feel, well, awful.
It wasn't really my intention but I have to keep something a secret just to surprise him, to make him feel
he's still my special someone. Hrhr.

Okay, I was sounding a bit cheesy now.
Ta-ta!

Enjoy your Valentine's everyone.

Art Crafts Obsession






She was waiting for a sound, a mum in his lips, a word.
He never did say a thing, he moved away and she held his hand. Tight.
"Please.." she said.
He wasn't moving. He doesn't look back. Uttering the words,
"I gave you a chance, but you blew it."
She was crying, pleading because her world revolves around him once
and his world is still revolving around her, but suddenly it stopped. Gravity lost it and all of a sudden all his stars came falling down.
"Don't leave. I know I wasn't there when you needed me. But God knows, I tried." she said.
He now looks back but looking blankly to her,
"Good thing God knows. But what about me? I didn't know anything about it."
Then walked away. She knelt, like she was so lost, so tired and so dejected.
He was walking towards the door and suddenly, he stopped. He hurdled back to her, brought her into his arms and hugged her.
"I am sorry.." she said.
He looked into her eyes and said, "I love you.."
"I love you too."
And he brushed his lips into her cheeks,
"Will you marry me?

Ferocious


I was sailing.
Sailing to the ocean of my dreams.
To the most abundant corals, to the deepest trench, to blank seas.
I was looking towards the silver lining there at the farthest place I have ever seen. Never ending.
As I get closer, it gets farther.
I was so frustrated, I wanted to jump off and chase it, reach it.
I am so furious, wanting to get there, wanting to rest my tired feet and soul in the shore.
I sail. Fast. Relentlessly. Then I shivered.
I was lost in the middle. It was gloomy, calm and eerie. No sound, no echo, no nothing.
I was alone with my boat. I was about to set the anchor down until I heard a tiny thud.
I can feel it getting closer 'cause it became louder and louder until it broke the silence of my soul.
Then it suddenly disappear, no sound, like nothing happened, like nothing occurred.
I am now shipwrecked. Abandoned in the middle of nowhere, cannot even see the silver lining I was chasing, cannot even remember where I was and where exactly I am.

I was lost. Sailing. In my own thoughts, in my own spirit, in my own dreams.

My sweetest downfall


You are my sweetest downfall.
I loved you first, I loved you first.
Beneath the stars came falling on our heads.
And he kissed me til the morning light, til the morning light.
You are my sweetest downfall.
And I loved you first.

They proved me wrong...

Since I still cannot afford to buy a film camera and I can't risk a thousand to buy a holga lens for my Percy,  here's a faux film effect.













We went to Ayala earlier today and did our subject requirements and decided to just ditch our last two subjects and spend our time in Glorietta. Too bad it rained, we didn't get the chance to take pictures in Greenbelt Park.

At first, I am super out-of-place because, honestly, I am really not that close to them.
This is my first time to be with them, alone, without my friends.
Well, it is always nice to make new friends.
So I just grabbed the opportunity and took the risk of being out-of-place 'cause I really wanna get to know them and this is my chance.
They never made me feel strange 'cause they always check on me and they made sure that I don't feel bored. I appreciate their effort and I am really sorry if you all felt that I wasn't enjoying or happy, I am really not that showy so I might appear snobbish or rude and I am sorry.
But, I do really enjoyed being with these guise.
I miss having a barkada. Where you have boy and girl friends.
They made me feel like I have a barkada and it really made me happy to the point that, I now want my own barkada which consists of 3 boys and 3 or 4 girls.

Let's call it a day and goodnight y'all.
