Within the Walls

I've lived in the Philippines all my life but I haven't really seen it. I know most of you guys have been here, but that day was my first time to go to Intramuros! It's Latin for "within the walls." It is the oldest and most historic place in the city of Manila. I was super hyped when I found out I get to shoot in Intramuros. As a History major, it's very liberating.
Stating the fact that it is so big, walking around Intramuros was a bit of a challenge, but I'm so thankful I was wearing ballet flats! As I walk pass the Aduana, I could still feel the presence of the history. I was so amazed that I acted like a tourist in my own country. Being able to have a photoshoot and actually see Intramuros is one of the best experiences I've had (despite the sun burning my face). Aside from the history, I was stunned by the architecture! With the classical facade, defined stonework, and the beautiful history, Intramuros is a must-see place! Manila is filled with gorgeous landmarks, and I hope I get to see them all.

Paskuhan Full Blast

Every year, University of  Santo Tomas has this event called Paskuhan; every Thomasian looks forward to this annual event. Not only Thomasians, but people from other schools as well. I didn't know what to wear at first. Knowing myself, I am a perfectionist when it comes to dressing up. It took me an entire week to put together my outfit.

I started with the basics: black v-neck shirt and denim shorts. But it wasn't enough; not to me though. To match my spunky personality, I added black stockings and leopard print jacket. I'm a simple yet edgy kind of girl. It's okay to add loud prints and daring choices, actually that's better. Speaking of daring choices, it's the same with make-up. Two words: red lipstick! And your make-up look isn't done without eyebrows. 

Remember that less is more, too! With the loud leopard print and black stockings, it's important that your accessories are only minimal. Just wear your everyday-earrings, and the optional ring.

Charlie's Angels much? Gotta love these girls! Nothing better than being with your clique, especially a fashionable one!
