Thank You, 2014!

At the end of the year, I always do some self-reflection and create goals for the next year. In fact, at the start of the year, I made it a goal to blog at least once a month. Goal achieved! Midyear, I became more dedicated to blogging (also because I had much more free time on my hands) and soon enough, I actually stuck to a blogging schedule. So join me as I look back on the highlights of my 2014.

JANUARY
Welcomed the new year timidly bracing for the life-changing events that I knew were going to come.
Hello, 2014!

The Reason For The Season

Today's outfit shots were taken at Cebu Grand Convention Center after I enjoyed a hearty dinner buffet. It cost P650 per head, but with my tiny frame, I don't think I ever get my money's worth at any buffet. Don't get me wrong, I eat a LOT. I eat so much that people who don't know me are always shocked at how much I eat. However, I can't eat so much in one sitting. But I sort of get hungry every 2 hours. So basically, I eat frequently but you can't overload me with too much food at one time. Okay, I don't know why I just explained my eating habits to you all. On to the outfit, shall we?

Zalora Basic Shirt Dress

I heard about www.zalora.com.ph quite a while ago but what really lured me to make my first purchase was this basic shirt dress. I've been looking for this classic closet staple for a long time now and found that the ones I've come across were always overpriced. So when I found this piece for only P899 at Zalora, I decided to finally give in. And I absolutely love this dress! So expect to see this around the blog again in the future.

Prom Dresses That Are Also Perfect For The Holidays


I just discovered this online shop (www.avivadress.co.uk) with an amazing collection of prom dresses! With prom season approaching and the holidays already in our midst, I thought it would be perfect to show you how you can maximize the use of these beautiful dresses for those grand Christmas and New Year’s parties as well. Depending on the theme of your prom or grad ball or formal Christmas party, you're sure to find a dress perfect for you. Here are my choices below:

BLACK AND WHITE
No doubt about it, black is a classic. You can never go wrong. So while everyone else is clad in skintight, body-hugging black dresses, why not go for this empire strapless black chiffon long prom dress? Nothing says “goddess” better than an empire silhouette. Hair up or hair down, doesn’t matter, you should change your name to Aphrodite, really.

A Weekend at Shangri-la's Mactan Resort and Spa

Today's post features last weekend's stay in Shangri-la's Mactan Resort and Spa, which we were able to avail at a promo rate of P6,500 per room - buffet breakfast for two included. This is a photo diary, and not an actual review, because really, what hasn't already been said about this prestigious, 4.5-star hotel in Cebu?

Cebu: Caffe Dara and Cafe Talk

Cebu is now full of Korean cafes and I'm no stranger to them. I've already written about Cafe Tiala and Cafe Noriter and even though I didn't particularly find those experiences exceptional, I somehow found myself hanging out with friends in two more Korean cafes. The cute ambiance they always come with somehow lures you in effectively.

First up, Caffe Dara. Located in Lahug's restaurant filled area, simply enter the corner where Pizza Republic is located and turn left in the next corner, and you'll find this cozy and tiny cafe. Unfortunately, only one car can park in front of the cafe. Otherwise, you'll have to park in the streets a block away.
