Rediscovering Duka Bay

This was supposed to be my last blog for 2013 but the internet connection was too slow so I finished uploading photos at exactly 12:16AM here in the Philippines, that means this is technically my first post for 2014.

I couldn’t think of anything more precious than the company and love of a family. Every moment spent with them is surely something I value and I am very thankful for.

My 2013

Life is full of surprises. My 2013 has been a wonderful year and what better way to wrap it up than embracing new blessings in my life. Just this November 6, 2013, I got officially hired as a Pharmacist for an international beauty, health and lifestyle retailer. It was a career move that I did not plan but I am very much happy for. Although it meant lesser time with my family as I had to go on duty 6 times in a week, I look at the fulfillment I am getting from my new workplace. That is why all the more that I am making up for those times that I missed family dinners etc. Β My sister also got married last December 6, the grand opening day of the branch I am employed at. I did not make it to her wedding but even with islands apart I made sure they felt my support. So for today I am sharing outfit post as the whole family rediscovers Duka Bay on my one-day off.


















And I couldn’t get by the last leg of my 2013 if not with the all out support and unconditional love of my B.

Thursday Thrift: Floral x Polka Dot

Thursday Thrift: Floral

I know it’s not a Thursday but I was caught up at work last week that I failed to post this look. I have always been a fan of finding fashionable pieces at an insanely low price and so I did not think twice on buying this floral shorts.SAM_6995This interesting floral print is very light to wear. It is perfect for a stroll at the mall or even for travelling. It is stretchable and has pockets too. This for only Php 150 πŸ™‚1I paired it with my long time polka dot razer back top that I had for Php 100 πŸ™‚ I used it for a quick meeting I attended on a windy night so I put on my fave yellow jacket.SAM_6996SAM_7016SAM_7015Β


Random Friday: Scribble Shopping (Wish List)

Scribble Shopping

I think that next to window shopping, doodling is the next best thing. This is my first fashion sketch ever and I am quite surprised on how relaxing and fulfilling it has been for me.

photo 1I felt like I really did wear this beautiful piece that I have been dreaming over for weeks. This top in particular is from lovebonito.

photo 2This see-through bodycon skirt is off white in color and has gold dot details. I randomly came across it at Instagram. And that’s a vintage gold watch πŸ™‚

How did my drawings go? Happy Friday πŸ™‚

A Rusty SundateLAST HURRAH

It was our last quality time together as a family last Sunday before my sister heads back to Cebu. I convinced them all to watch the UAAP Cheerdance Competition while having our afternoon snack. We first dropped by Margie’s Bakeshop (coffee shop) and Pan de Pugon to buy some foodies πŸ™‚


Weekend, if ever I have one, is my time to detox and pamper myself. I work for a community drugstore so I get to serve customers the whole week. The drugstore I work for fronts a hospital so most of our customers are irritable watchers deprived of sleep, emotionally drained and financial challenged. It takes so much patience and a bag of charisma to satisfy (if not please) these group of individuals. But this Sunday (Sept 15) I get to play the “customer” role, only that I am not irritable at all. As the manager of the drugstore at the same time I know for sure how toxic it is attending to every customer’s complaints, most specially if it is about service rendered.

Going Public


Here is part two of my teal-cyan-mint-celadon fondness. This is another skirt I borrowed from my sister who recently visited us here in Butuan City for a week. We couldn’t decide which camera to use for this #ootd fun shoot so while she was setting the proper exposure, shutter speed and aperture (I hope I got those right) from her Canon dslr, I was going over her shots from my dad’s Samsung NX10.


Two months ago I started to own a little space in the world wide web through WordPress and as I was asking myself today why, I could only think of one answer. 2013 is by far the busiest year in my career life and up until June I felt like I was disconnected with the rest of the world. I was so into my main job and sideline that I seemed to have taken for granted my “me time”. Blogging then Β is my outlet, my RR, my super “me time”.


I was following popular fashion icons in the Philippines via Instagram and one day I just thought of visiting their blog sites and there…I fell in love. I aspire to be a fashion blogger too. Way to go before I could connect to the world and influence people like they do but hey, making 41 people follow you for your random posts is a good start right? So here we go with the rest of the photos. Continue at your own risks πŸ˜€








Teal the World

SaturdateTeal, mint green, celadon and cyan blue, these are my kind of colors for this year. These shades are perfect the whole year round here in the Philippines.
