How's everyone doing? 

Just an update on my life: My time is currently divided between school work and blogging. Yes, you read that right: BLOGGING! As time goes on, I realize more and more that I really am passionate about blogging. I find myself excited every time I have new outfit shots to post and catch myself spending more and more time just thinking about it. I can see myself doing this for a long time, maybe for as long as I can. :)

Another thing that sparked my interest lately is makeup. I have never appreciated it before--I even told myself once that I'd never wear makeup. But one thing led to another, and I saw the wonders makeup can do, especially when done correctly. I'm not one who applies large amounts of makeup on myself: I'm more into using makeup to highlight features and add a natural glow. In some of my posts, I only used BB cream, face powder, and an eyebrow pencil. When I have extra time, I also apply eyeliner. I'm in a stage where I tend to experiment with makeup. Because of this, I now shop for less clothes and more cosmetics. I recently bought two BB creams and two lip creams. Another set of cosmetics is on its way (hihi). And I'm planning to buy more in the coming weeks. You can follow me on Twitter (@heyitsalyssayu) or Instagram (heyitsalyssayu) for  real time updates. Haha. :) 

Enjoy the photos!

Silhouette 3 12

I've always been attracted to anything with a sweetheart neckline. It exudes a great deal of femininity and gives off a sexy vibe. Sadly, I don't own a lot of clothes with this type of neckline. So when I had the chance to have a dress made for me for my sister's debut, I specified that I wanted a sweetheart neckline. I'll be showing you the dress that I wore and also photos from her debut soon!

This dress is one of the clothes I modeled for Silhouette. Check out their Facebook page here.

Floral Pants

IMG_8881_2 copy

Last year, I was desperately looking for a pair of floral pants to add to my closet. Months passed and I still haven't found the perfect one. I've been looking for so long that I just forgot about it, until last Christmas, when my relatives surprised me with a pair of floral pants for a gift. I was literally jumping for joy and made it a point to wear it as soon as I could. Coincidentally, I was also looking for something to go with this top from Mango. I bought it last December and haven't worn it since. What do you think of the outfit? :)

The Girl in Black

Silhouette 3 13

Another outfit I wore for the Silhouette photo shoot. This is again one of my favorites because this dress is versatile- you can wear it day or night. It can't be seen in the photos but this dress actually has a peplum detail at the sides, which makes it even more sophisticated. Paired with the right accessories, you'll go from simple to glam!

Sweater Weather


One of the reasons why I love the chilly weather is because I get to wear my sweaters. I want to maximize the use of my sweaters as much as I can before it starts to get warm again. I wore this to the Times Square Fashion Bazaar at SMX last Sunday. I had fun walking around the stalls but they're fewer than expected. I was supposed to wear heels but changed to flats at the last minute. It turned out to be a good decision because I felt so comfortable the whole day.

And and and, tomorrow is Valentine's day! Do you have anything special prepared for your loved ones? :)

Silhouette 3 15

Happy Chinese New Year to all of you! It is believed that wearing red on the New Year will bring you luck and prosperity for the rest of the year so I decided that it is about time I post this set of photos. Almost a month ago, I was invited by a friend to model for their clothing line called Silhouette. It was originally scheduled last year but since all of us were getting busy preparing for the holidays, they rescheduled it to January. This dress is my favorite from their collection and if you're interested to have one, you can check out their page on Facebook. Thanks Nikka and Didin! I had a great time with you guys! Watch out for my future posts to see the other dresses I modeled!
