B&W Series: Classic White Top


Hey guys! I noticed I've been wearing a lot of black and white lately, so I decided to create a series of posts to which I document my monochromatic outfits. I think it'll also be easier for you especially when you're looking for black and white outfit inspirations. After each post, there's a footer that contains information regarding the post, such as time posted, number of comments, and labels. Just click on the word 'b&w series', and all my posts with that label will appear on your screen. Yes, it's that simple!

Here, I wore my favorite white top from DKNY. If you look closely, you'll see that the upper part of the top, including the sleeves are made of leather. I just love subtle details like that!

Physiogel's Free in My Skin Movement


I'm lucky I don't need a lot of products to maintain a healthy skin. My skin type is normal, sometimes bordering either oily or dry, but it's very manageable either way. Other people though are not as lucky. Physiogel's new campaign -- the Free in My Skin Movement is all about empowering Filipinas to break free from dry, sensitive skin. It encourages women to confidently embrace life and achieve their dreams and aspirations. TV host and entrepreneur Patti Grandidge (who I saw just last week at Colgate's event) is the one leading the movement. Click here to watch the video!

I chose to wear my newly-purchased blue crop top from Forever 21. While digging through my closet, I happened to find a skirt in the exact same color! I threw over this white blazer from Mango to make the look more conservative. What do you think of the result?

Who's That Girl


A few months ago, I stumbled into this crop top at the crazy Forever 21 sale. Because I loved it so much (and because there was a Buy 1 Get 1 promo), I found myself buying two! It's actually very easy to look for bottoms that go with crop tops -- I'm sure you already have lots in your closet. They look great with pencil skirts (like the one I'm wearing), skater skirts, high-waisted shorts, and even jeans. When wearing crop tops, I usually prefer wearing high-waisted bottoms to show less skin. There are some exceptions though, like when I'm at the beach -- I wear low-waisted shorts to emphasize my (almost nonexistent) curves. Haha. How about you, what do you usually pair with crop tops?

Colgate's Dream Wedding Launch


I don't know why, but it seems like a lot of couples are getting married these days -- one of which is my cousin! I'm even part of the entourage for her wedding two months from now! I'm so excited!

Planning a wedding is indeed stressful and it's a guarantee that things won't go your way. Colgate Optic White promises one shade whiter teeth after just one week, giving brides-to-be one less thing to worry about on their wedding days. Aside from offering future brides the perfect white smile, Colgate will be giving one couple an opportunity to work with the industry's bests when it comes to wedding coverage: Jason Magbanua and Pat Dy. Click the button below to know how (only if you're reading this post from my homepage)!

Since I came from a meeting, I decided to wear pants for a more professional look. We were asked to come in a white ensemble, so I wore my favorite white top. What do you think of my outfit? :)

Banana Peel Family Fun Ville


I get excited whenever I get invited to events where I'm asked to bring my family. Just recently, Banana Peel invited me to their Family Fun Ville event at the Midtown Atrium of Robinsons Place Manila. There was definitely something in store for each member of the family! Food and beverages were given away. The event was open to the public from 12 noon onwards, with the time before that exclusive to bloggers and press people. Three tickets were given away for every P500 minimum purchase of Banana Peel and/or Banana Peel-licensed products.

I opted for something casual and comfortable, and for the shoes -- that meant wearing my new Bensimon sneakers (click here to read the story on how I got my Bensimon sneaks)!

K-Palette 1-Day Magic Series


I'm more than a month late, but better late than never right? Last July 29, I was invited to model for K-Palette's Magical Makeover event at R Space, Makati. Onstage, makeup artist Sayaka prettified my face using the new 1-day magic products (more info about the products after the break). Sayaka gave some tips on highlighting and contouring the face, as well as answered inquiries on how to use the products. I definitely learned a thing or two about makeup!

Blackbird at the Nielson Tower


Blackbird is without a doubt, quickly making waves in the restaurant industry. Having just opened a few months ago, it's now on every foodie's wish list. Conveniently situated at the heart of Makati, the place looked stunning with its art deco interior, which, interestingly, was made to resemble a plane. The food by Chef Colin Mackay (of Sala and People's Palace) was absolutely top-notch!

Clad in Florals


Hi everyone! I'm back with another ootd post!

This is the type of outfit that comes to mind when I think of going strolling around the park. It's fun, flirty, and because of its bold colors, gives off a fairly positive vibe, don't you agree? Despite my appreciation for this dress, this piece of clothing had just been sitting in my closet. So what's the reason for my hesitation? Well, this dress has an unbelievably *gulp* low neckline. I had to raise it up every so often, especially while these photos were being taken. Haha. More photos after the break!
