So last 19th of February, SU college of nursing held a bash in relation to college week. Each year level had their respective themes to follow and being a junior student I had to be in a classy chic get-up. They gave us an idea of Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe. I wanted to go as Leighton Meester. I was pretty hyped to go for it when suddenly… I lost the energy. Idk how that happened. Must have been the overdose of Glee. (I went back-watching season 1 of Glee and it made me want to just stay home on a Saturday night.) But anyway, I managed to get up and prep up but the whole Meester thing just drained down the toilet just like that.
So, I went for this asymmetrical black dress with gold strap that Donna lent me. I honestly bought myself a pink dress because like I said, I wanted to go as Leighton. But I changed my mind because..idk..i guessed I like the black dress better.
Obviously, I didn’t exactly follow the classy chic thing because I ended up lookin’ like pocahontas in the modern world. But, i liked it anyway. :D Sometimes, it’s cool to defy a little. jk.
Donna looking fab!
With board mates Aisha and Darrell. *Ahem, their hairstylist, ahem, me*
Runway models who are looking fab and classy! Ella Nuico (first from the left) wins face of the night and other awards I can’t remember.
My bohemian man.
black and white. classy.
So, that’s just about it.
All izz well! :D
Just came home from a sunrise service hosted by our college of nursing. I’m suppose to sleep, but as usual, i can’t directly go back to sleep.
Anyway, last night, I met someone—-famous and an important person in the fashion industry. Well, I didn’t meet her personally but I met her through a book at National Bookstore.
Introducing Nina Garcia. I know, I know. I’m a
loser for just knowing her now! But yeah, I stumbled upon her lovely book that made me want to take out money from my bag but unfortunately could not because I have none. It is undeniably a bit pricey for a student like me.
I know you want to open that book!
I don’t know how much of a coincidence it was but after knowing Nina Garcia for the first time, I later saw her in tumblr’s NYFW radar/tagged thingy whatever you call it in the dashboard (if you noticed it). So yeah, coincidence.
It’s not even first page yet but you would already love the first flip. <3
So that’s it. I wasn’t really able to go through it but I think this book is really handy to avoid fashion-disaster in every occasion.
Will someone kind-hearted give this to me as a gift? hoho.
Strolling with bfbff.
Yay to no duty day because of PTC. Wasn’t able to get my grade though because I had to do my little roomie’s hair for her prom night. Anyways, boyfriend and I went to Rob because I desperately need to get me a dress for the upcoming college bash. No, I’m not excited! I took a look at my wicked schedule and I couldn’t find any spare time to do shopping on the weekdays. So yeah.
But epic fail= I couldn’t find the perfect but cheap black dress I want. Boo.
So what did I get instead?
This very adorbs + cute bunny ballpen. Im such a sucker for cute stuffs. [too bad the ink comes in blue. I’m a black-ink lover.]
Hoho. anyway, this should be the last post for the night.
Temporarily got me off some school load :D
Anyway, if you happen to have read my reblogged post from Keigh of akakeighers.tumblr, this is what this post is all about.
I couldn’t exactly remember how I stumbled upon Keigh’s blog. But the moment I saw the content of her blog (specifically the TFC segment she was doing), I had no second thoughts of pressing the Follow button. Afterward, I sent her a message sincerely saying how awesome her blog is [because she’s passionate about fashion despite the uniform hindrance]. And to my delight, it actually made her happy that also made me happy because I made someone happy! [happy=overused in one sentence]. Long story short, we exchanged messages and without knowing it, she was actually working on a giveaway at that time. And then she just surprised me after saying she’s giving it to me! 8D *happy me,of course!*
So yes, last Thursday, while studying, LBC guy handed over to me the package. It was a real surprise because Keigh actually never told me when she was exactly going to ship it.
And what’s inside the little red box?
Three pairs of lovely + adorable vintage earrings. <3
I definitely can’t wait to match it with whatever outfit I have.
She even left a little note inside. :)
Indeed, this is something I’d treasure forever because it’s rare to meet someone like Keigh being kind and generous to a person she’s never actually really met in person. And to add to that, the thought of choosing to give it to me was far more greater than the earrings itself. I wouldn’t consider this as a giveaway, but instead, would always remember this as a gift. <3 Thank you again, Keigh!
A perk of tumblr, meeting a new friend :D
School days have been quite a boring routine so there’s literally nothing exciting going on. Nada. Sucks. Anyway, I do not know why I’m even reblogging giveaways since there has to be like 0.1% chance that I’d win. Nevertheless, I am a hopeless procrastinator who is currently reblogging + liking giveaways because I am bored to death, yet, it is so ironic to be even online on such a demanding week. So….yeah.
Another morning of point and shoot using Donna’s new giz. She’s been practicing capturing photos around school so that her camera would be put to its maximum use :D
She likes making me her subject. I’m not much of a good subject though. :<
Yay to side bun with bow.
Sam’s lookin adorbs with her outift. Really suits the weather.
Yay to photo with secret girl crush, Eve—pretty+smart+chinita. Not so secret anymore, I guess. And be jelly of her cute printed espadrilles. T_T
Another honoree/smart classmate, Romil. huhu. I don’t belong. Where the averages at?? *shyly walks out.
Cute picture is cute. Good thing Tiara’s not wearing a jacket or I’d be totally out of place./hugs tiara*
That’s just about it. :D
