Spare me the YOLO lecture, I have seen some of the the deplorable death-by-accident movies. To state the obvious, I have been extremely idle for quite a time now. And by idle, I mean, "… the term which generally refers to a lack of motion and/or energy", as how wikipedia would put it. Coz’ even really passionate bloggers have their timely (restorative) hiatus, right?


WHAT I’M WEARING: Violet Top (Peacebird), Plaid Bowtie (Blooming Handkerchiefs) Red Watch (Ice Watch), Khaki Short Pants (Penshoppe), Tribal Bracelets (SM Accessories) and Blue Shoes (Robertson’s). Hype this on lookbook here.


On the grounds of my prodigious fascination to TVD’s episode "My Brother’s Keeper", I have actually contrived a Mystic Falls inspired fashion shoot. Like, a very literal Mystic Falls fashion shoot! HAHA! Now what can make a random pictorial session more accomplished than presenting my newest bowtie item? Wanky.


Along with my Econ B*tches, my keenly framed sojourn to Kapatagan for Danahlyn’s debut party was noteworthy. As much as I adored the picture-perfect scenery, the Cathedral Falls is definitely one-of-a-kind. If I may say, my pictures didn’t do justice to this magical, majestic (and mystic, so to speak) falls!


The gleaming sunlight radiated the copper-ness of my hair. 


Ultimately, this day has been notably meaningful for a number of specific reasons: (1) the dili-ni-inyo-balay bus experience; (2) the Badjao inspirational talk (subject for potential future short films); (3) Legine’s amazing (and most of the time disastrous) contingency plans; (4) on-the-spot debut hosting; and (5) bloodcurdling, random van knock while passing a cemetery. LOL. Love my Econ B*tches! Period.

Reality check: semestral break is officially over and school fever is finally back … on full heat! Probably most of us — if not all — are still in an intellectual stupor (undeniably raising my right hand up here); the sight of our teachers doodling random stuff on the board still makes us squeamish. I admit that I kind of struggled with getting my head back on the game last semester, which highly distressed my overall GPA. But worry not; this fresh start marks my pledge of doing my best in attaining a bunch of future targets, both academic and social.

WHAT I’M WEARING: Aztec-Print Blazer (Carnival), Wild Boar White Tee (Artwork), Khaki Short Pants (Penshoppe), Tribal Bracelets and Fish Bone Necklace (SM Accessories), Bracelet (Penshoppe) and Gladiator Sandals (Oxygen). Hype this on lookbook here.

Loads of tribal bracelets all from SM Accessories.

Got this wild boar white shirt on an Artwork sale. I actually love their collection of white tees! They have a wide set of creative designs ranging from a-dork-able human faces, animal totems and relatable phrases.

"Smize, you’re fierce!" as Tyra Banks would call it. I am working on mastering the angles of my face, and was trying to go out of the box by trying new expressions. How’s this for a head-start?

On top of everything, I really want to build a name in the fashion industry. I used to be undecided in my career aspirations and I wasn’t accurately sure of anything, until now. For what it’s worth (and kindly keep up with me on this), I will work my ass off til’ I can finally become a fashion icon for some people. After all, we dress to inspire and not to impress, right?
