Seven Nation Army and Oh My Adoration for Coachella Fashion

So just recently, Coachella, the music festival in the Californian desert I've always wanted to attend, came to a close. My goal is to go there as soon as possible. And I don't think that'll be impossible since I will be living just above California in the next month. 
 I have forever been a fan of the event's ever changing fashion cult -- but if you ask me, from the very first time I've seen their fashion, bohemian never left the scene ( Hail Queen of Boheme, Vanessa Hudgens). Although bohemian movement was never my go-to style, I have somewhat came to a liking of it lately, especially when traveling. It's the easiest to pull off. 

My style continues to change up until this very day. I can wear grunge, girly, to street style in any day. And basically when my mood changes, the clothes change as well, but I frequently make sure that I'm comfortable with what I'm wearing. That is my number one style rule. It makes me confident. 

If I were in Coachella this year, I would have probably picked this outfit. I wore this to the FIDA Grad Show Presscon. I would really like to be able to move around and have fun without sacrificing style as well. I'd probably add a black fedora or shades in there as well. But yeah, everything in moderation.

Any thoughts on what you would wear? :)

Dubai and Abu Dhabi Photo Diary

It's been ages since I last blogged! And I really apologize. I was just so busy with our graduation and my recent vacation in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I'll keep my words short and sweet since I don't want to bore you. haha So here it is, the photo diary that I've been meaning to share with you guys. :)

 The Miracle Garden in Dubai was my favorite trip of all. ( I bet it would've been Ferrari World if it wasn't closed for a private function. BOO!). Anyway, this place is just so perfect and inviting. I really could stay here forever.

 Burj Khalifa. The tallest building in the world.

 My father took this while we were on the cruise. Burj Al Arab looks magnificent.

 Dubai Marina

 What I Wore: Cotton On cropped top ( yes, turned into a dress) Random skirt

 The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi

Emirates Palace. The 2nd most expensive hotel ever built. It's so beautiful in person.
Surprisingly, we didn't take a lot of pictures during this trip. I didn't bother putting Atlantis, The Spice Souk etc anymore in here.

That's the end of my photo diary. I'm so excited for today since I'm meeting with my blogger friends this afternoon. Yeeey! Tune in for my next posts! :)

Martish celebrates ‘Obrigada’ – The Havaianas 2014 Collection Launch

The day was dressed for a celebration as Martish Marketing Company- the exclusive sub-distributor of Havaianas in Southern & Eastern Mindanao, held ‘Obrigada 2014’ at the Northcrest Resort Ballroom on March 12, 2014.

‘Obrigada’, which means ‘thank you’ in Portuguese, is the company’s annual gathering of Davao’s top media personalities, and key influencers. “Because this afternoon is a bigger celebration than past years’, it just means that our hearts are ever so thankful for the support that you have given through the years,” Marga Nograles remarked in her welcome message to the guests.  

Martish has once again bested itself in preparing for Obrigada 2014. Known for its sophistication in organizing themed parties, Martish adorned the venue with shabby chic elements, making it feel and making it look like a picture taken on a bright summer day! The guests, who came in floral outfits, enjoyed taking their pictures with the ballroom’s main pieces- 3 photo corners primped in pastel colors. 

Presenting the Havaianas 2014 Collection

YES. I'VE GAINED WEIGHT. Not that I know of.
Hey! I'm finally graduating! Aaaaah! It's a bittersweet thing really. My whole life I've been formed and conditioned in Ateneo de Davao University and it's dear parting that I'm finally getting out of my baby stroller and walking on my own. It's scary to think about but I'm taking this smoothly.  In fact, I want to skip the graduation ceremony and just deal with the real world from then on. I know I'm ready. But of course, the 'rents won't let me. My father's going to walk me down whilst feeling the vibe with the marching theme. The beat is stuck in my head. haha

My initial plan is to make the best out of my last summer here in the Philippines -- go to the beach, party, go to the gym, meet new people, try new things, eat more Filipino food, blog some more, attend events, spend the rest of my days with good friends, dogs and my boyfriend. I only have 3 more months until I bid adieu; I'll be living in Vancouver for good. I'll miss everybody but I'll still continue to blog. That's a promise. <3

So hurray to my fellow graduates! We're on the thresholds of our semi-adult life. After this, it's official, we're all unemployed. Haha Kidding. From here on, I only wish everybody the best.
