I LOVE FOOD. I think I'm even more of a foodie than a fashion enthusiast, and my instagram account (@heyitsalyssayu) can attest to that. If only I was good with words, I could've labeled myself a food blogger as well. Although I do blog about food from time to time (you can never hide from you true passion lol).
So anyway, Zomato asked me if I wanted to host a giveaway for you guys. Zomato is an easy and convenient way to discover new places to eat. They have a complete restaurant directory and provides other valuable information to help you choose where to eat, such as the restaurant's menu, opening hours, average cost per person, location map, and even if the establishment offers free wifi! You can also share your experiences to fellow foodies by writing reviews and posting them online! Now, how cool is that? I recently created an account on Zomato which you can see if you scroll down on my left sidebar.
In line with this, Zomato is kind enough to grant one lucky reader over P2000 worth of GCs from various food establishments! To join, click the link below (if you're viewing this from my home page) and wait for the Rafflecopter widget to appear. Good luck!

Lee Cooper, one of the major participating brands in the Great British Festival, opened the fashion show with specially handpicked pieces from their newest collection. The collection featured preppy saturated hues fused with a grunge marine feel. As models walked down the runway, you couldn't help but notice the playful use of colors in their clothing, as well as some British touches here and there. The pieces are very versatile and can be styled in various ways to match everyone's style. It can go from sleek and sexy, to casual and sporty! I'm actually eyeing the orange pants worn by the model on the far right!
The Great British Festival, organized by the British Embassy, was a 3-day event held in Bonifacio High Street. There were various booths, exhibits, and activities in store for everyone, from movie screenings to football drills to live music! There was really something for everyone! The festival was designed to increase the Filipinos' awareness about UK culture, and to strengthen ties between the two countries.

Last month, Ryan and I celebrated our anniversary at none other than Manila Hotel's Champagne Room. I loved the theme and the ambiance: very Victorian-ish. I felt every bit the princess while being served by the restaurant staff. The portions were really big which was why we spent the whole evening trying to finish our food. But don't get me wrong, the food was amazing! Beyond amazing, even. They served the best Chilean Sea Bass (Bar de Mer Chilien) in the world! And they even gave us complimentary chocolates for dessert! Other dishes we ordered were French Onion Soup, steak, and pasta (I can't remember which one lol, but it has salmon in it so that narrows it down). I really enjoyed everything about this place, from the grand and lavish furniture to the excellently prepared food! Two thumbs up for this place! We had such a great time and it was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! :)

I've been looking for a denim or chambray button-down since forever…but now I'm happy to announce that the search has ended!
There are so many denim or chambray tops to choose from in stores but it seemed like I couldn't find the perfect one for me. I almost gave up my search when one afternoon, I saw this chambray top on the shelves of Uniqlo *rejoice*! I admit, it wasn't the best, but it was good enough for me. I hurried over to it but found that they did not have my size. Sad.
The next day, in a different mall, I came upon another Uniqlo store (it was totally unplanned!). I immediately looked for the chambray top from the day before. I was expecting not to find any in my size, but there it was, in size small! I actually asked if they had a size XS to see if that one fits me better but I was told that the smallest size they carry is a small. Although even without trying on the smaller size, I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase!

So, I was very much surprised when my sister gave me this dress as a gift for doing well in last month's board exam. It was one of the sweetest things ever. ♥♥♥ Thanks Tricia! I immediately wore it the moment I had the chance! Hope you like the photos!
P.S. Tricia did not want to tell me where she bought the dress so I had no choice but to include only the brand of my shoes at the bottom of this post.
