Road trip to highland...again

We went here not so long ago but on the other side of the highland. What makes this place a romantic getaway? I guess the cold weather and the thoughts of going out of town just the two of you that makes it romantic...for me :)

 Taal volcano

 hanging bridge along the eco trail

silhouette of mine on a foggy Tagaytay!

 my mysterious loving driver-photographer :D (don't get mad babe! :))

This is the nearest place we can go..for now. That's why the place been featured here twice already :D

Christmas gift

Last month the bf asked me what I want for Christmas, I can't think of anything.He's so thoughtful and sweet. He always bring something whenever we see each other..."I don't need anything, all I want for Christmas is...YOU!" I said.

But then here's what I've got...:D


Actually this isn't a surprise because I was there when he bought it, I chose the watch myself, the saleslady adjusted the band to fit into my wrist but I did not wear it right there and then :) on a whim, I asked him to wrapped the gift and had it open on Christmas day :D...this may not be the most expensive gift someone can ever received...but the thought matters so much to me!

 so sweet! :)

I have not given him yet my Christmas presents...until now I can't think of anything :D whenever I asked him he just said "just always be there and love me faithfully..." hmm the cheapest gift I can ever give! no amount of money can ever buy a faithful love :)

Emo!...Merry Christmas everyone!

A quick trip to Tagaytay City

An unplanned quick trip + no decent photo = memorable for me :D

memorable because...it's our first out of town trip (hopefully more to go!). Here's the resto where we had our late dinner.

I wonder how much they paid for this cottage??
in this particular area dining in will cost no less than PhP1250
 
instead we had our dinner here no minimum orders required :D

this is an excellent view if only I had a better digicam :(
overlooking Taal volcano (the smallest in the world)


Hopefully we'll have better photos on our next trip.

A visit to Philippine AirForce museum

Have no time to blog for quite sometime now due to busy schedule. I've attended a 1 week class, a field work and graduation.

But got a chance to unwind a little...:)






It so happen that I stayed near the airbase that's why I got a chance to visit the place in between my class schedule. The bf was also a former AF pilot so I was able to strolled at the base and museum, which I've been wanting long time ago :D (PAF museum is open to the public but not sure if you need to be escorted)...felt he missed his beloved work :)

The 3rd pic by the way is the presidential plane used by the Marcoses during their time :)

Hopefully I can take a photo outfit for this shoes it's been a while since I last posted an OOTD. I have lotsa thrifted stuff am just a little lazy to take photos :D

Post training outfit

I managed to take an OOTD photo after the whole day training I attended.

Thrifted this J.Crew long sleeve top, chiffon fabric, collared and ruffled deep v-neck somewhat an animal print (not sure :D) I wanted to remove the ruffles because it's too girly for my taste but decided to leave it as it is. I think it's serves as accessory so no need to don more blings. Just wore long necklace to cover my peeping cleavage :D paired it with my hobo fringed bag which is a thrift find also :)

I bought it the night before and I was kinda ecstatic to wear it so I washed it as soon as I got home and since it's a light weight fabric it dries up easily. Who would say it came fresh from the thrift store? :D Some of my colleagues didn't recognize me maybe they were used to seeing me in a boyish (my usual company provided uniform huh!)get up most of the time.

hah thrift shopping is soooo addicting I hate it! :/

Customized shoe: JC Burke

Ok so here's my customized shoe I've mentioned on my previous entry! Got it last Tuesday, I'm happy with the finished product in general though just a little bit disappointed with workmanship. I find some flaws that almost failed my quality criteria but since it's my first to have a customized shoe and it's first time for the shoemaker to make a platform heels, I'll defer my OCness for now. I'm planning to have another customized and my inspiration are already waiting! but not so soon...:)

As for the JC Burke (
what?? who?? is he/she a shoe magnate?) Well he/she is not a known neither unknown shoe designer for your info :D...
Photobucket
I find Jeffrey Campbell's foxy shoes so enviable but I don't think I can afford such shoesies with my frugal mindset and petty income, that's next to impossible to buy :D...but of course I'm still hoping and wishing to shoefairy to grant me a
JC foxy :D...anyways so, I 've also came across this photo of Brooke Burke's python heels (forgot the website failed :( )...

Photobucket

in short this is JC foxy and Burke's heels inpired shoes, hence the name - JC Burke heels! :D unfortunately no available snakeskin on the market. According to shoemaker it's banned! (hmm python and snakes becoming endangered species because of fashion? nay! :D..

Photobucket
I opted for nude leather instead :) JC for the heels and Burke's crisscross strap-open toe style (minus toe cleavage)...can't wait to wear this! just in time for the "godmother" thing by end of month :D

thrift shopping again! :)

I can't remember when was the last time I bought a shoes from a boutique or department stores. If I remember it correctly it's been a year since I got addicted on buying shoes from a thrift shop. Back reading my blog you'll see some of my thrift find, mostly shoes but I don't limit my buying to shoes only, anything that interests me and if the price is right I grab it :D I also venture on ebay purchases...the downsides are additional shipping fee and the sizing.

Ok back to my thrifted shoes, top photo is an American Eagle Outfitters polka dot canvas ballet flats, 'twas almost new -a mall display maybe. Comfortable insole with an arched footbed. I haven't worn it yet (except for photo op) The second shoes, Camper Greta 20909 wedge sandals, so comfortable! in fact I've been using it everyday for almost a week now :) any outfit can do with it, may it be skirt or jeans...I sooo like it! I found the similar shoes at shoesopia :)...not bad for $7 from $99!! :D

In another note, I'll be posting my customized shoes soon! :)

My kid won't like it!


Bought another maxi dress at "mobile" thrift store. It's a Bebe dress, sheer fabric with satin lining. If you've noticed the inside lining, it's as long as the outside I just fold it to create a sexy silhouette :)...and got a slimmer figure in here , d'ya think so?! hahaha

I was talking to a friend on my mobile phone while taking this photo outfit. She never had any idea I was posing here and there while chatting w/ her! hehe

I love dressing, unfortunately, there's only few occasion I can wear dresses. We're new in the neighborhood, no friends, no relatives to go out with. The boyfriend not yet home, still at the Atlantic ocean working his ass on a cargo vessel, no dates to attend to :(...anyways, despite of fewer events happening in our new place and the sporadic weather I'd still manage to dress once in a while :)...but the kid is a little conservative (boy @7yo huh!) doesn't want to see me in plunging neckline, short shorts (any outfit that shows thighs and legs), bare backs and see throughs! weeh I love my kid :D

Wedge shoes


As I've mention in my previous post my wedge is almost dying :( fortunately, as I pass by this mobile thrift store/s (huh?) I found this xhilaration wedge (upper photos) which is perfect pair for all my floor sweeping raiments weehh! :D just included 2 more wedges I owned. These are for casual and everyday get ups! as I'm not a fan of heels (unless chunky or kitten) while malling (stroll in shopping mall :)



mobile, because they don't have a booth just a tent, they're only there 2 times a week and I don't know where they are on some other days :D

floor length maxi dress


Got this maxi dress last week while thrift-shopping. The length is for floor sweeping :) I had to dig my very old and almost dying 1 finger wedge to pair with this dress 'coz I don't feel like pairing it with any of my heels, too casual maybe?!. Wear it with flats and you're leaving your back without dust! :D hmm definitely not light-weight fabric but very comfy and I can wear it even on hot and humid weather!

Oh! and I got a nice background here...a slippers, a collection of dust, and rolled poster! hehe

skeleton accessorizzzeee...

I'm not the accessorize-type of person. Watch, earrings, and my favorite stainless middle ring I'm good to go!...I do buy bling blings sometimes but I seldom wear it. I easily or got too lazy to wear it after a few times.

I found this long necklace cute! had wore it with any outfit, girly to boyish get-up! :) and currently my favorite, I think! :D hmm I intend to buy another one, a vintage-y pendant owl, elephant or a locket...what d'ya think?...uhmm I'm eying for the owl pendant! :)

My schutz from Adora!

I won in Like MyShoephoria contest last week. We had our shoe shopping @ Adora Greenbelt 5. I got so overwhelmed seeing those sea of shoes! I had a hard time of choosing my shoe prize. I want a flats so that I can wear it anytime but I also like heels, it's sexy you know! :) but decided to chose the latter!...was so elated the next day I wore it when we went to Christian church at Victory The Fort and my friend told me "oh di ba bagay ang shoes mo dito!" (oh see? your shoes belong here!)...most of my friends thought had lose weight maybe because I added some height with my 5 in sandals! looks can be deceiving huh! :D

My first time at the Market! Market! so camwhoring time :D
