July 2016 #OOTDS

Let’s a take a break from the travel posts (but I would still blog some more travel-related posts next week because I have some backlog stories to share), and talk about outfits! Haha.. I was (and still am) seriously considering converting this blog into a travel blog because travel-related posts seem to be the more popular posts. But I just can’t resist the temptation of posting outfit photos because outfit photos were the core and the backbone of this blog since its creation. I will resolve to publish only one #ootd post per month because, the truth is, I also don’t go out often. Continue reading “July 2016 #OOTDS”

September #OOTD (and some realizations)

September was a busy month for me. I took a short course on bread making and baking at our town’s TESDA and would be home on most days tired with sore feet. We were not just baking, we were also washing tons of bowls, whisks, and pans, and scrubbing tables and floors. In between classes, I had time to relax to celebrate our island’s provincehood and take a quick stroll at our neighboring city, Dumaguete. Continue reading “September #OOTD (and some realizations)”

La Vie en Rose

 

 

One hot summer afternoon, I was in the vicinity of the “pink house.” My cousin and I called it the “pink house” and I thought that if I had money, I would buy the house. Until the house opened to the public, and I had no money. I was looking for crepes but the restaurant opens only at 6:30. The boulangerie though is open all day so we ordered food there. La Vie Parisienne is a very popular place, especially for people who want to post pictures in Instagram. I loved the chocolate cake we ordered (P80 per slice) because it tasted like the super-moist brownies I used to bake in college. The coffee — Americano (P100) and Macchiato (P130) — was so-so, not spectacular. The deli sub had generous serving of pork, but I had to chew carefully because the bread was hard and I was afraid my false teeth would fall if I eat the sandwich hurriedly. We went there at 4PM, in the middle of summer, so it was probably a bad time, as I had difficulty relaxing because of the heat. Maybe we should come back on cooler months to enjoy the wine, and the crepes I was looking for.

I managed to insert an outfit post — this is to thank my grand-aunt of the clothes I received from her last Christmas. The sheer top (which had an open back) had sequined sleeves.

Name: La Vie Parisienne

#OOTD These Days

Life’s been busy and fun lately so entries in my blog has been scant. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t take the time to take pictures of #ootd or outfit of the day, except I was too lazy to upload and write. I’m still loving vintage, maybe even more so. I’m also taking time to wear clothes and use accessories given to me as gifts from family and friends. Continue reading “#OOTD These Days”

OUTFIT | Starting Summer a Little Early

I admit, I quite enjoyed our cold January weather. But the Philippines will always be a tropical country, and because it’s now March, I could not help but think of summer. I’m not a beach babe, and I don’t have anything in particular to look forward to this summer, but summer has always meant a long “vacation” for me.
