top 10

I was tagged by Rachel(of Glee)-look-alike friend, Mary Ann of "There's Something About Maria" to answer these tough 10 questions. And because I love her, I took time to respond to her request.haha
Enjoy reading!

    1. Why did you create the blog? 
    Two of my close friends, Aika and Mike, are really good bloggers. I was inspired to do blogging because of them. My first few entries are all about random topics and for me it’s a bit boring. I realized that I have to be specific or at least focus on what I really love. ..and that is..you know na..UKAY! Then I found blogs of Ms.Denise , Mads, Little Miss Dress Up and some other fashion bloggers, I got interested doing mine also. They are my inspirations. They love thrift shopping and so do I.  So why not show the world the beauty of “thrifting”? Then Mike convinced me to do outfit posts using my ukay(thrift) finds. I'm a bit hesitant. I’m not confident to show my poses and yes, be published online. It takes a lot of courage. Then gradually I found myself getting more obsessed with thrifting and doing outfit posts.  I'm happy with what I'm doing and I'm forever grateful to my inspirations. (tissue please)
      
    1. What kind of blogs do you follow? 
    I follow blogs that interest me usually about food, photography and fashion.

    1. Favorite makeup brand?
    Hala! Honestly, I don’t wear make-up. I only have Lipstick and face  foundation.  Extreme Shine for lipstick and Garnier for face powder.  

    *if you guys can recommend good make-up, please tell me. Thanks.

    1. Favorite clothing brand?
    I’m not very particular with  brands. As long as I feel comfortable with it, then go!

    1. Your indispensable makeup product? 
    I can’t live without foundation!

    1. Your favorite color?
    Other than black and white, I also love RED and GREEN.

    1. Your perfume?
    I’m not into perfumes. My head aches whenever I smell one. I prefer colognes. (ganun ako ka-boring.haha)

    8. Your favorite film? 
    My ultimate favorites are REDCLIFF, BEFORE SUNSET, BEFORE SUNRISE, Matt Damon’s BOURNE (identity, supremacy and ultimatum) and Clint Eastwood’s.

    9. What country would you like to visit and why? 
    -  Austria , Greece and Italy
    - Japan and Hongkong
    - Australia and New Zealand
    - concrete jungle where dreams are made of … New Yowk! (ah country ba?hehe)

    1. Write the last question and answer it yourself. 
    What’s your craziest dream? 
    -         To perform in front of the crowd. Yes! I want to have a concert at Araneta!

    I now tag:

summer and so forth

One thing I love about Philippines is that we can wear summery attire almost everyday. As much as I want to wear coats and boots like people on the other side are wearing now, I just can't because it's scourging hot here. And since you've seen me dressed in black in my previous posts, I decided to wear a floral top paired with my thrifted Steve and Barry's pink shorts yesterday for a grocery date with boyfriend.haha.

take a walk

Last weekend, while we were strolling around the new place, I stumbled upon a thrift store and found this great pair of shoes. I am so into it and grabbed it right away because it's too pretty to let go. It's still in very good condition and it's made in Italy. I'm not familiar with the brand but it sure looks durable.This is, by the way, the  best shoes I got from thrifting.shoes shoes

around my neck

:) 
bag:Parisian, sandals: Liliw, shirt: Gap, jumper-like dress: thrifted

Have you ever worn jewelry that easily irritates your skin? That's my problem with necklaces especially those that are made up of copper and silver. Every time I wear one, my skin becomes red and itchy.So as you have noticed I really don't wear necklaces often. Then yesterday, as I roam around St. Francis Square, I found this kind of string.It doesn't irritate my skin at all. 

So if your skin is sensitive to metals, make sure to choose jewelry labelled hypo-allergenic.

Back to outfit post, I'm showing you my favorite thrifted black dress. Got this for only 50 php (1$). Don't you just love its pattern and design?  Plus, it's a perfect combination of my favorite colors - black,white and gray. 

And this, by the way, is our rooftop. Now I have a new place for my crazy ukay photo shoot. ;) 

Lastly, I wanna thank Eunice for the Happy Blogger award. I'm honored to be one of her inspirations. Do visit her stylish blog
