ArtFair Philippines 2017

First time to attend Art Fair Philippines. I have been wanting to see this yearly event in The Link, Ayala but it’s either I have a different plan on the same date or I don’t have someone to join me in Art Fair.

Not Even Perfect

For 2017, I made sure that I will be able attend the fair and I was not disappointed. The place which was originally a parking building housed a lot of art that entices the senses. There are even installations and interactive pieces that you can touch and play around. What I really enjoyed the most is that the fair showcased variety of art that appeals to different people.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar (Day Two) 

Part two and second day of our trip to this wonderful place in Bataan, Philippines.

One day is not enough to take in what Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar offers. There are a lot to see and every corner of this property is instagrammable.

The walking tour from the first day almost covered what you want to see in the whole property and we used our second day like our own personal time to look more closely to the different houses and appreciate the architecture and design a little bit more.

Adobe House


Wide Space, Cobblestone and Pink Haired Me


Believe it or not, we were not able to come near the beach as we were too busy with taking in the beauty of the entire place. Too bad that I even brought some swimwear but in the end was not able to use them. Maybe I’ll use them on my next beach trip instead.

This quick and somehow educational trip is a way to start my summer (or maybe the only summer trip I have this year 😂) and I see myself in the near future that I’ll be coming back to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar to see the new houses and attraction this place has to offer.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar (Day One) 

I have this fascination or a dream that I want to travel back in time so that I can appreciate arts and architecture back at those time. I really wanted to learn more about the design aesthetics of long gone days and how unique Old Manila was. Yes, we might have Intramuros to relive those good old times but my spirit “old school” me craves for something more.

Taking A Break From All The Walking


So happy that I share same sentiment with my college friends and we have decided to visit Las Cas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan for an early summer getaway.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a big compound or property where you can delight your sense of sight with pleasing Old Manila/Philippines style, dating back to the 1800s to 1920s-ish style. You got to experience cobblestones driveways which I only read in history books or I’ve seen in real life in Calle Crisologo in Vigan.

Old Building, Modern Times


We have decided to stay for one night in Las Casa to have a full experience how it feels like to live back on old days. Don’t be fooled as their rooms have air-conditioning units and television set (and most importantly, WiFi connection!).

Greenery


For our first day in Las Casas, we have decided to join the complimentary walking tour. Thanks to this tour, we were able to see the entire compound and even had the chance to enter the houses. The houses are originally came from different parts of the Philippines and they have relocated them all in this place. As wonderful as the exterior of each house, the interior is a spectacle of their own. It’s as if we have visited an entire compound of musuem dedicated to Old Philippines design.

Summer and Stripes

After so much time, I got the chance to blog again.

Since, this was way long overdue, I was still sporting pink pastel hair and still kinda long. I already moved to kind of dark brown silky shiny hair. There are just those time that you will feel that you need to move on and have a change.

The entire look is still very summer despite that this was taken early March: from stripped top, baggy (ahjumma-kinda look) pants to juicy blushed face.

Waiting for a Summer Breeze



Stripes are staple to my closet and I have tons of them. This stripped shirt is from H&M. Baggy straight pants are trendy nowadays and we even sometimes joke around that it is kind of reminscent of “ahjumma” style. I think I have been watching a lot of K-Drama recently tho. Straight baggy cropped pants are just perfect for summer season as it is relaxed and can easily mixed with almost everything. Lastly, finished the look with a clean beige slip-ons from Cotton On.

PS. Summer is in full bloom here in the tropics. I honestly wish we have spring or autumn over here.

In The Mood For Blue Summer

Summer has been my favorite part of the year as this is the perfect time to enjoy the beach. But here in the Philippines, summer is “almost” an all year long season. You can visit the beach anytime (except when there is a tropical storm or low pressure area) to enjoy the sun and get some tan.

Smile, The Sun is Out

It is innate for those living in tropical countries to choose the summer season over the wet seasons. Honestly though, I am still wishfully thinking that our country has autumn and spring (and forego the winter season).

This outfit post way long overdue as this was taken during our trip in Cebu back in October 2016. I will be posting my travel diaries soon so please watch out.

Looking For Something?

Gorgeous back drop was courtesy of Virgin Island in Sante Fe, Banatayan, Cebu. I highly recommend this island ad a visit when you are in Cebu. Bantayan has a lot to offer.

Sleeveless top is from Factorie. Shorts from H&M.

Mood for Some Blue

I have been wearing a lot of blues recently and is becoming one of my faves after black and gray. The H&M shorts are not actually under the swimwear line but they are so cute that I decided to bring them to the beach.

Black Out

Nowadays, I opt to go for minimalist look compared to when I was younger I have tendency to go for maximalist. I don’t know if this is a sign of maturity (or ageing – whatever you call it. LOL).

Black Is One Of My Faves


When I cleaned my closet before Christmas, all I see is a sea of muted colors of black, whites and grays with sometimes hint of blues and very minimal to none for loud colors. I guess my affinity to muted colors is because of my ever changing hair colors. I promise to blog about my hair color adventures soon, so better stay tuned. Even my to-go-to colors for shoes are gearing toward grays and blacks. I really think that the streamlined Asian aesthetic influenced me to go for this style. I like how simple pieces make up interesting overall look (topped by the my light pink hair).

Hello Black

Long Line Black Top from Mint. Black Sneakers from New Balance.

Ever wonder where this wonderful place is? It is in The Alley At Karrivin in Makati City. The hidden place houses some furniture shops, flower shop, restaurant and very great coffee shop named “Writer’s Block”. I think I’ll also start blogging about my coffee adventures too?

Gray Matters Most

Gray has been my to-go-to color and it has been a constant color on my OOTDs. I know I’ve said this before that whenever I go to a store my eyes gravitates first to grays and blacks. Another reason I love picking up grays for my OOTDs is because it is one of the colors that you can easily mix and match with almost everything. If you want monotony and minimalist, pair it with black. If you want to go all out kawaii, pair it with killer colors. You can never go wrong with grays, in my own opinion.

Gray

In The Midst Of All The Colors

What is really fascinating too is that it my gray wardrobe pieces can easily coordinate with my ever changing hair color. This is a proven fact – I’ve tried pink (light and dark), purple, lilac, violet and blonde, and all those hair colors really coordinated well with gray pieces.

Minimalist Kawaii

Gray Oversized Top from Uniqlo. Black with Red Accent Sneakers from New Balance.

Since, I kind of said it this post that I almost tried all sort of colors, please stay tuned for my next entry to know more how I get those funky, kawaii and pastel hair colors. Details really soon (I promise!)

New Stripes

Stripes are something I can consider as staple in my closet. I have almost all manageable style of stripes you can think of and my most favorite one is the black and white thin style. As far as I remember, I have been wearing stripes all my life. I even saw a baby picture of myself wearing this style.

Vacation

 

As you would have known by now, I love simple and clean aesthetic. I even reference my style as “minimalist kawaii”. Stripes are something that I can easily mix and match to my style. You can wear this style no matter the season is. You only need to know when to wear the best perfect stripes for the occasion or season.

 

Simple Yet Cute

  

Playground

 

I really find it amazing when I see a stripes style with an “attitude”. Something shouts “I am not a normcore stripes” but at the same time still a classic staple. I find this very amusing top from Uniqlo UT collection which features capsule collection for different themes. I personally love these shirts from Uniqlo that I always make sure to include Uniqlo on my shopping trip every time. Aside from that, Uniqlo has got me hooked because of their clean and classic aesthetic.

  

By the way, I am wearing a combination from Uniqlo. Both top and bottom are from Uniqlo. Top is from Uniqlo Dick Bruna UT Collection.

Wraparound

I have this fascination that you might have noticed from the last couple of resort wear style blogs I posted before.

 

Long Stretch

  

Wrap Me Around

 

The last couple of beach trips, I always brought with me some wrap arounds, cardigans or pullovers. I really find it useful to bring at least one on your beach trip as you can use it in different ways.

It also adds a little touch of drama to your beach wear.

Deep Blue

This probably the quickest that I’ve blogged so far. Just arrived from an out of town trip last night with my college best friend and I’ve already done a little bit of edit and draft. This is a really good sign.

This is the first outfit blog from my recent trip in Batangas (where else but to the beach). We are so lucky to be living in a tropical country that makes it far from impossible to visit a beach whenever you want to. Well, except maybe for a few days when rain is unbearable.

Close Up and Make Up Look

 

Recently, I have this fascination with blue tones. Whenever I do my shopping, blues always attract my eyes. I also think that blues mixes well with my peach/ pink hair. The combination of blues and pinks brings a more youthful feel.
