Globe Tattoo Awards

I know I have been mia for weeks. I've been busy with work because it's month end yet again and in order for me to enjoy the long weekend, I'd have to make sure everything's dunzo Friday eod. But hey long weekend turned out to be a great series of "batugan mode" days because of the weather. Although I am still thankful because we don't get that kind of vacation very often don't we?

So coming from work Friday late afternoon, I went home to change and went straight to Manila Pen to attend the Globe Tattoo awards night. I was a little worried because I thought I won't make it since traffic that day was super bad. Here's what I wore...

Dress- Philisophy and Wedges from Janilyn

Necklace from Celine

Here are some photos with my fellow bloggers during the event:

Philippine Fashion Ball

My weekend was all about running errands in preparation for the Philippine Fashion Ball.

I was ecstatic to see this in my email!

The first Philippine Fashion Ball was held in Manila Peninsula. It's an event in partnership with the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP). It's basically the grandest gathering of top names in Philippine fashion. They recognized outstanding Filipino icons such as Josie Natori, Inno Sotto, Jun De Leon, Joey Espino, Marina Benipayo, Jackie Aquino, Patrick Rosas, Henri Calayag, fashion guilds YDG, FDCP, FDAP and the past PMAP presidents for their remarkable contributions and achievements in the local fashion industry and beyond.

Here's what I wore.

dress by Eric Delos Santos, shoes- Aldo, accessories from my sister

Many thanks To Sir Eric for the dress and also to the designers namely Jay Sustiguer for lending us his creation. It was just sad that it didn't fit me and Kat Corpus for letting us check out the dresses in her store.

It was a night where all fashionistas gathered in one room and I will forever be grateful to Ed for the invitation. And of course Aisa for everything else! Oh hey you have to see her dress! She rocked that Dimple Lim gown!


Ana, Krissy, Vern and Patricia were also there. This experience brought me back to my prom days lol! Maybe that's because it's also where I had my prom back in the days. And yes that was more than 10 years ago! eeehhh!

I will share more photos from the ball soon. Have a great day loves! =)

Another Lazy Outfit

It's Thursday again! Weekends are coming really fast these days. Last week, I went out to watch a movie with Allan. I was too lazy to dress up so I went with my ever dependable shorts and shirt combo. I think the wedges and the necklace made it look a little more special than it really is.

I badly need to have my hair colored!

Watched The Company play while waiting for the movie...

Dinner at Sizzling Pepper Steak was perfecto!!!

On our way to the car we saw these babies.

Look! A sleeping Shitzu!

And I guess this pug fell asleep while eating... lol! So cute!!!

That's it for today! Have a happy Thursday loves!

Project Runway Philippines Season 3 Launch

Last week I attended the launch of Project Runway Philippines season 3. The event was exclusively for press and bloggers. I was honored to have been invited. Thanks to Tessa Alviz and Kate Villena for the invitation! =)

Let me start off by showing you what I wore.

I wanted to wear something really comfy at the same time chic and weather appropriate. This printed maxi skirt was just perfect!

Okay so here's what transpired during the talk. As we all know, Project Runway Philippines is on the look for the next Filipino Fashion Designer. Set to premier on ETC in February 2012, this season is said to be more centered on Filipino pride, character, materials and culture. Their main goal is to inspire each designer to whip up something Filipino that can stand out among other global brands.

This third season sets the runway on fire as iconic Filipino model Tweetie de Leon- Gonzales takes over as the host bringing her years of experience as a model here and abroad. Joining her is Acclaimed designer Jojie Loren as mentor as well as internationally renowned designer Rajo Laurel and top model Apples Aberin as returning judges.

Let's expect more extravagant challenges, bigger celebrity guests and creme de la creme of Filipino fashion to take the spotlight. I've heard season 3 also goes "high-tech" as they partner with Asian Institute of Fashion iACADEMY which boasts of a new fashion design program that make use of modern IT tools in design. Great move right? Can't wait to see that!

Of course I didn't go by myself. I went with Pax and we were surprised to see we have matchy outfits! =) I love her expensive kind of look! A couple of agents selling a condo tried to talk her into buying and we were laughing thinking how the outfit kind of worked! haha! Achieve!!!

I had such a great time chatting with Aisa over coffee after the press lauch. See photo below, Coffeebean gave me a new name. lol!

Saw some of my friends from Solar.

Aisa and Kate

Cora was there too! =)

More photos from the lauch...

Apples rocking the dress made by Veejay Floresca.

With ETC's free TV, all of us can catch each and every episode and witness how they showcase the uniqueness of Filipino designs on the global stage. I can't wait to see who gets to own a 10-page fashion spread in Mega Magazine, P500,000.00, start up business package of 10 sewing machines, a short term fashion design course at a top European fashion school, a two month apprenticeship with Asian Institute os Fashion's top industry fashion designers and a full scholarship for a four year fashion design program at the Asian Institute of Fashion iACADEMY. February please come fast!!! =)

PS: Aisa and I were interviewed and we answered quite a few questions. You know how awkward my face looks on TV and I don't think I can ever master speaking with a camera poked in my face lol! So if you ever see the vid by chance please don't judge wahahaha!

That's it for today! Have a great day loves! =)
