My Hair Transformation:

From Ash Blonde to Balayage!

Hair Transformation: Going Balayage

#AlDubEBTamangPanahon - the most trending hashtag in Twitter beating the Fiba World Cup gained 41M tweets on their Tamang Panahon charity concert. It was held in the world's largest indoor arena with no vacant seat that can be seen. Imagine 55,000 people gathering just for one event that was not even considered planned at all? It was like announced 1 week before the said event and it was sold out. Yup, sold out! Yes, I knew the tickets were really cheap but still hello? Sold out? Awesomeness!

What is it like to have a bitch face?

Life of a Little Biatch

You will never go wrong with the basics.

They said, wear the basics if you felt like your inner fashion stylist isn’t working at the moment. But
fancy girls would never like a plain boring tasteless #ootd shot on their Instagram. It’s like working on a ‘no makeup’ make up process. You would want to look like you don’t give a minute thinking what to wear, when honestly you pulled out tons of your clothes thinking what to pair.

Black and white are the trendy colors that you could easily pair for a basic look. A white Topshop crop top, ripped black pants, a white Converse sneakers or a black H&M boots are the most paired and will never gets boring perfect combination if you would want to achieve the basic chic look. This is the most common easy look that all trendsetters and followers are spreading all over the hashtags ootd. Check out this outfit inspiration from Kristina Bazan.

So aside from being a trend follower, why won’t we tweak the basic a little bit. The basic trend doesn’t really mean that it’ll be always be the black and white movement. You may also pick other colors such as pastel pink or a little pumpkin spice color that would definitely look perfect for this upcoming fall season. The trick was keeping it minimal yet on fleek. 

If you would like to rock the basic trend this weekend without the effort of shopping. Make sure you check all these things on your wardrobe. I am pretty sure you all got these stuff, you just need a little creativity!

  • White Shirt
  • Old Jeans
  • Classic Sneakers
  • Totebag/Backpack
  • Shades
A white or black shirt is really nice and comfy to wear. Loose or fit? Whatever you’re comfortable wearing. The goal is comfortable basic trend outfit.

We always have the old jeans that we don’t feel like wearing anymore, so why don’t you ripped it instead of buying new expensive ripped jeans? A little Google or Youtube help on how to DIY ripped jeans project is just a few clicks away on your browser.

Classic Sneakers. Oh come on, Converse, Nike, Vans and Keds are just a few popular options, then kiss your mom every time you ask and go shopping for a new pair of shoes for your PE class. Admit it or not, if you’re a not too sporty type of girl, you will go for thick rubber shoes, instead you'll pick a white chucks or etc for your PE class.

Backpack. I’ve seen this Chanel backpack from Chiara Ferragni. My eyes went bigger when I saw the price of the bag. So I am recommending you some trustworthy and also stylish brands yet way more affordable backpack such as Jansport and Heartstrings. Heartstrings have cute and beautiful variety of designs But if you would like to go for basic look bag accessory, maybe you should go for Jansport, I’ve known this bag since I was a little and personally I think that this brand would last longer that the other brands.

Shades. If you don’t own an expensive Rayban like me, why don’t you try Sunnies Studios owned by the beautiful current Asia’s Next Top Model host, Georgina Wilson. Honestly, I am very impressed on how this brand grew larger internationally in a short period of time. And if you’re asking if it’s nice, yes it is and it’s really cheap!

And voila! You got the basic trend on a very easy and cheap way. You don’t need to always shop and splurge to achieve a new rockin’ outfit, just a few tweaks and creativity always helps!

Love Always,

Today’s generation of modern femme are always on the go. We no longer considered ourselves as inferior to men unlike the old version mindset of the ancient society. And as a part of the growing brave women moving in this busy world, I’m sharing the must-haves that every girl should load on their tote bags.

I noticed that 90's style outfit is getting back on track. Style is just a cycle. We will all change. By the way we dress. According to our age? or perhaps following the trend? or doing it your own stylish way!

So before I would share to you on how did I lose weight, let me just remind you that I am naturally petite (when I was young and before I became fat). I can’t explain further if it really affects the weight reduction because I am no pro regarding this topic, either I did not hire a professional trainer to help me on this. I cannot guarantee you that what will I share to you will be 100% effective. Why did I say so? Because I weighed 48kgs before I went back to 40kgs. If you’re above 50kgs, the time span that you need to dedicate in order to achieve the body that you want may take longer and double the effort. Patience is a virtue, you need loads of patience set on your mind and sincere dedication in your heart.

I love listening to music. I think most people love listening to it. We tend to express our feelings through the songs that we could totally relate to its lyrics. But I have no idea about headphones, the thing is I don't really have much anything to say about this review. This isn't a sponsored review either. This Frends headphones is totally awesome. I got this as a prize from an Instagram contest. Yes, lucky me! This Frends headphones is the Taylor - Rose Gold. So here's a quick mini review of it. PS: I'm comparing this to Apple headphones, and Frends is so much better.

Better late than never! I know summer season is already on the ending point but I just felt like posting these pics so I could work on my upcoming posts. My sister took these photos last April and what month are we now? Oh! It's June already. Gaaddd. Time flies so fast. After the effin hot summer days, let's all prepare our umbrellas this July.

Boho Summer

This outfit shots had been on stand-by for more than two months already after I processed these photos in bold contrast. Yes, I mean bold! because I really wanted to look like really edgy with my dark lipstick that I am really obsessed with. And oh, I also made my eyebrows really thick in here, hoping to get at least those thick bushy brows of Cara Delevingne. I just hope there's a way I could make my brows thick. Yes, I did not say thick-er because unfortunately I am not blessed with thick hair or whatsoever.

Finally, posting an entry for this blog after asdfghjkljaf yearssss! Lol, just kidding, I don't know what the heck happen, I've been really busy last January that I keep on neglecting, oops no, forgetting what I really love, and it's blogging outfits. So many things happened these past few months and the highlight of those, was about me, oh, I just turned twenty-two years old this February. I'm getting older! In the near future, I would like to blog interior design, because I'm actually quite creative in decorative stuff, but I would like to save all my ideas, if ever I could get my own space.

Moving on, I'd like to make this supporting text post short before I could continue all my ramblings and daydreams. Just keep on your dreams, and start making it real! :)
