Girly Girl

I don't usually like seeing the color pink on my wardrobe except for this particular shade. I find them too loud and girly for my taste. Probably the same reason why I'm not that into colorful pieces. Yes, I do buy some occasionally when I'm in the mood but I don't see myself wearing those in an everyday basis. In the end, I stick to where I'm comfortable at- neutrals. I believe these colors are must-haves in a girl's wardrobe because they're so easy to mix and match and they don't usually get outdated. Do you guys agree? :)

P.S. My face looks so shiny in these photos cause I forgot to put powder after applying sunblock. Teehee! :)

P.P.S. Have you joined my giveaway yet?

Wild Wild West



I hate to say this but school is getting busier by the day! It's becoming hard for me to find time to write a post but I promise to keep you updated! If you want, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram (@heyitsalyssayu) or you can also like my page on Facebook. :)

Now, about this look, I just threw in some pieces which are of the same shades. You can try this to make your look more put together. Actually, in terms of matching clothes, I find this technique the easiest. I mean, just take a look at your closet, grab clothes belonging to the same color palette, try them on and see if it looks good. Sounds easy, right? I kept the accessories minimal so as not to make my outfit look like a mess, with the distracting print of my top, the busy pattern of my vest and of course, the fringe! And lastly, add a statement piece, be it shoes, accessories, bag or whatever you want. In my case, I wore a pair of orange sunnies. Just make sure it complements your outfit and not compete with it. :)

Chill Out

Hello guys!

It's been a while since my last post. It's because things are starting to get really busy in school. I can't afford to be lazy nowadays. Haha. Anyway, I feel so lucky I spotted this fabulous top in Mango during their end of season sale! What's amazing about this is you can sport a casual look by wearing it with shorts, or go for a more elegant look when paired with a nice skirt.  Notice my pearl black bangle on my lefts wrist? Bianca of Twinkies Inc. sent me this, together with the collar necklace I blogged about here (thanks Bianca!). It can transform your look from simple to classy! Do you agree? :) Click the button below to browse more photos.

I don't have a lot of photos to show you this time guys. The only decent ones I have are the ones when I was sitting on the floor. We were supposed to take pictures of me standing up so you can see my complete outfit but it started raining and the wind was getting really strong. This was one of the times when it's very hot and sunny one minute and rainy the next. You just can't predict the weather these days in Manila. I'm in a hurry so I gotta go! :) Watch out for my future outfit posts!

Coron Photo Diary: Part 1

Hi guys!

I had the chance to visit the amazing Coron, Palawan last May with my high school friends: Marianne, Cindylene, Charlotte and Mery Creme. It was my first time to go to Palawan but I heard a lot of people say that Palawan is great, maybe even better than Boracay because it is less commercialized. It was raining the whole time we were there which is why it's a bit dark in the photos. It's just a shame though, because everything would've looked a lot better with the sun and blue skies. We had the island hopping on our second day and everything looked amazing! I never thought that places like those exist in the Philippines. The Kayangan lake (photo above) is my favorite!  It was my first time to swim in a lake and I loved the experience! The temperature of the water was perfect and the view was incredible! We were also able to visit Twin peaks, CYC beach, Twin lagoon, and Maquinit hot spring. After the trip, I actually wanted to go back there again.

I didn't bring my DSLR because it's too heavy so I brought my Nikon point and shoot (Nikon Coolpix P300) instead.

This is one of the trips I'll never forget! Stay tuned for Part 2!
