I'm a huge sucker for no-brainer outfits. Believe it or not, I'm very comfortable just wearing a simple top plus shorts or jeans.
Everyone can definitely pull off this look! If you feel that your top is too bulky that it hides your curves, show more skin by wearing shorts or a skirt, instead of pants. To add more oomph to your outfit, why not toss in a pair of heels? Wearing heels in the same color as your skin as well as those without ankle straps gives the illusion of longer, leaner legs.

Hi everyone! Missed me? I'm happy to announce that I'm back to blogging after a three-week long hiatus! I was extra extra busy the past few weeks that blogging was impossible for me. So what was I up to these past three weeks?
On the first week of July, I flew to Singapore and celebrated my birthday there. It was nothing big - just a simple dinner with my parents at Marina Bay Sands (which I'll be posting about soon!). Upon arriving in Manila, I had to pack my things again for a week-long visit to Legazpi, Albay. It's the city where I grew up in and finished high school.
Midway through my vacation, a typhoon suddenly made an appearance and all hell broke loose. Trees were uprooted, electric posts fell and blocked roads, and thousands of houses were damaged. It was a sad day for everyone. It was a good thing that we were all warned in advance, that definitely helped us prepare for the calamity.
Here's an ootd to signify my comeback in the fashion blogging world. Hope you like it! More photos after the break.

Dorothy Perkins celebrated its 10th anniversary in the Philippines by opening a store in the newly constructed SM Fashion Hall. It was actually a joint celebration, with Burton Menswear opening its first store in the Philippines. Both were brought in by RSSI (Robinsons Specialty Stores Inc.), the same group that brought Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Warehouse, and River Island to the country.
We were treated to a British themed tea party and a fashion show that featured pieces from the latest Spring-Summer 2014 collection. The event was hosted by TV host and DJ Aaron Atayde. Oh, and wait, I won GCs for answering a question correctly in their Twitter contest, yay!
In choosing my outfit for the day, I made sure that I would be comfortable (no heels!). Since the event was held in a huge mall, I anticipated that there would be a lot of walking, and I was right! We had to walk from the third floor, where the stores were located, to the ground floor for the fashion show, then back again. When the event was over, we did some shopping, and I met up with a couple of friends for a movie date. :)

If you're into fashion, I'm sure you've heard that the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2014 was held on the last week of May (some of you might even have gone to the fashion shows). I was invited to attend the SM Woman VIP Cocktail Party where we had the chance to watch a preview of the collections that would be showcased on the runway.

Around this time two years ago, I signed up to be a member at a gym, and I've been working out regularly ever since. I'm not working out just for the sake of having toned muscles (though I admit it's a part of it), but more of being fit and healthy. I also noticed that I tend to veer away from eating unhealthy foods, like chips, sweets, and fatty foods. I don't really avoid them, but it's like I don't like eating them as much as I used to. I guess it's part of embracing a healthy lifestyle.
So one problem I have had since I started working out is the lack of protein in my diet. My diet consists mostly of carbs (and I'm not willing to give them up even if it means having to work out more lol). But as they say, every problem has a solution, and in this case, it comes in the form of protein drinks.
