Pink used to be my favorite color but now I avoid it as much as possible. I find it too girly, which is totally not my style. Very few shades of pink are acceptable for me (and hot pink is definitely not one of them!). I don't want anything that's too loud or too playful, which I guess reflects my personality.
This dress is one of the few pink pieces I have in my closet. I like the very pale pink, almost white color of the lace-ish detail but of course, not as much as my blacks and whites. What do you think of the dress?

Going to the gym has become part of my lifestyle ever since I started out as a member at Fitness First, roughly 3 years ago. I work out 1-2 times a week, which, I know, isn't enough. But definitely much better than not working out at all, right? It's probably the reason why up to now, I still don't have the body I'm aiming for (VS body, anyone?).
When I realized that this was going to be a long-term thing and not just a phase, I started investing in workout clothes! I kept buying more and more, that one day, I was surprised to see that my gym clothes were starting to take over my closet! Case in point: I now have more gym pants than denim jeans! Haha.
I'm wearing all Nike here. Did any of you figure it out just by reading the title?

Who doesn't love DIYs?
The answer? Me. I've never done a successful DIY project in my life (does wrapping my notebook in printed paper count? lol) and as much as possible, I avoid anything that requires creativity. All my life I had wished I knew how to draw, paint, and do arts and crafts (I can't even cut straight using scissors, believe it or not).
When I received the invite to customize my own Bensimon shoes at Common Thread, Power Plant Mall, I got pretty excited. I've never designed my own shoes before! I didn't really think of what I was going to do with my sneaks though. I held on to the idea that the design would just come to me on the day itself.
The day of the event came. I was already sitting on one of the benches in front of a big wooden table, but absolutely nothing came to mind. Being surrounded by bloggers who were all doing well with their designs made me scared. I had no choice but to seek help from the creative people at Craft MNL, and fortunately, they gladly helped out. They suggested using bleach (which I've never used before except in the laboratory as sodium hypochlorite--chemistry class lol) and patiently taught me how to apply it on the fabric of the sneakers.

I've been to Browhaus several times because it's my favorite when it comes to eyebrow threading but this was my first time availing the services of Strip. They certainly lived up to their standards -- the entire process was fast, hygienic, and pain-free (except for that one teeny tiny second, but I'll get to that later).
IPL ACE is the latest technology in hair removal, and apparently, at Strip, it comes with lightening and tightening. I was lucky to be offered to try the service on my underarms. Read more about my experience after the break.
