New Year 2014: OOTN and Others

Here’s the “personal and sentimental New Year 2014 post” I originally intended to publish two days ago, prior to my getting carried away by the photos of my panda look (my best friend came up with that title for my eye makeup faux pas—I retorted that the dark circles of my eyes got so hopelessly dark that I resolved to shade my entire eye sockets with dark eyeshadow instead LOL we’re so weird)…

Before I start boring you guys about my thoughts and sentiments for the year 2013 and my hopes and plans for this 2014, let me first begin by showing you my New Year’s Eve outfit!

Green emerald drop earrings from Zalora, chain link necklace in yellow gold from Cotton On, chain link bracelet with logo drop in yellow gold from Michael Kors, Bradshaw 40mm chronograph watch in yellow gold from Michael Kors, dress from Tomato, dress belt in nude from Tomato, and peep-toe Sonia heels in nude from Sugarfree at Taste Central.

OOTD: Support Local Brands!

I’m not one to be nationalistic and go preaching “Filipino Pride!” on you all, but if there’s something Filipino that I’m particularly proud of, it’s the local clothing and fashion lines here, including the indie accessory makers. So much of them look really stylish, yet you can get them for barely a fraction of the price of imported clothing brands!

FOTD Flashback: MAC Kinda Sexy and Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed (15/09/2013)

The typical girly girl side of my personality has always been a firm believer in the statement that “a girl can never have too many clothes and shoes,” and since I’ve always thought makeup and fashion go hand in hand, I believe that a girl can never have too many makeup on her vanity desk, as well. The only thing that should be regulated about a lady’s fashion statement is the appropriateness of what they are wearing—you can’t expect not to get judging stares if you wear your bum day outfit and very minimal makeup to a club that requires a dress-to-impress dress code.

The day these photos were taken was one of the very infrequent days I tried to pull off the no-makeup makeup look, because if I remember correctly, I went to church for the first time in a long time on that Sunday. Although I respect everyone’s beliefs regarding how they do their makeup, I personally think my usual bold lip color and blush would not blend well with Church Sundays so I went with the most basic neutral colors. 😆

FOTD Flashback: MAC Raspberry Swirl and NARS Sin (11/09/2013)

Photos taken on the first day back in school for the second trimester of this academic year! This was a Wednesday and my boyfriend picked me up for school because my car was on number coding that day, so I did my makeup in the car instead (hence my makeup-less OOTD) as I almost always do when he’s the one driving to school. I was running late—again, as I almost always do—and I simply had no time to ponder about what lipstick and blush shade looked best with my outfit, so I grabbed the safest shade possible for my skin tone: pink lipstick matched with plum-toned blush!

FOTD Flashback: MAC Sushi Kiss and NARS Gina (07/09/2013)

Funny story I don’t think I’m ever going to forget: these photos were taken during the last days of our “term break” (with quotation marks because term breaks are usually barely a week long when you study in DLSU-Manila) and I was out and about extremely early because I couldn’t sleep due to my insane PMS cravings. I called up my boyfriend at around 5:30AM (I KNOW)—crying (NO, SERIOUSLY)—because I was hungry and I wanted pancakes, and he slept without saying good night and that made me sad. LOL. It’s a good thing he puts up with me during that time of the month. Just a little disclaimer: I’m not usually that way, okay! 😆

Anyway, since that morning was really sunny and I started feeling happy-cheery the moment my boyfriend said yes to picking me up at 7AM to get breakfast at Pancake House (we ended up eating at Pancake House for breakfast, Johnny Rockets for lunch, and Yellow Cab for dinner that day OMG no wonder I gained weight), weird ol’ me kind of felt like putting on makeup that was suited to how I was feeling and how the day was. I even made sure my lips matched the lips on my top! 😛
