Anticipated Misa de Gallo

Post made on December 16, 2011

Okay first of all, I’m gonna have to tell you guys that this is going to be a copy-paste post coz I am doing this right now in MS word. There’s no internet, I’m in the province, I’m about to throw up from all the food that I ate (remember I have to gain 10 kilos), reminisced that I have a decade old gameboy color and I checked it on my cabinet, and it’s GONE. I am such in a BAD mood right now. NGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH


*Inhale, Exhale

Maybe I shouldn’t take it on my blog if I hate the world too much right now so I’m just gonna share an outfit post for today. This morning was the start of the Simbang Gabi, a Filipino tradition where Roman Catholics get up and hear mass at 4am. We do this for 9 mornings before Christmas. Usually after church, people would eat puto bumbong, puto maya, suman, and pair it with tskolate. I will bible that it is sooo delicious especially if your tsokolate has extra milk. Hmmmmm!

So anyway, yeeahhh… I missed Simbang Gabi this morning heeeeee. My mom and I made a deal to attend the Anticipated Misa De Gallo nalang coz we both know there’s no way I’d be able to get up at 2:30-3am (we live 30 minutes away from the city). Not with my messed up biological clock. SO the deal was sealed and we heard mass today at 8pm. Here’s what I wore.

Polo from GUESS, black skinny jeans from NEXT jeans, Forever 21 feather earrings and clutch

Hype this look here.

I wanna be FOREVER XXI

Sooo excited to get this post published because I know a lot of people love Forever 21 like me.

If this picture is familiar to you then you might have read the previous post. These are my mom’s birthday presents from F21 SG ❤

You can stand under my umbrella..ella..ella..eyy..eyy..eyy 🙂

Mom knows how obsessed I am with nail polish and anything else that’s got to do with it. So she bought me a pedicure set and 2 hues of F21 nail lacquer.

Just last month, November 14, Forever 21 PH opened a branch in Cebu! So my friends and I went to the opening even if we were all broke (I only had 50 pesos in my wallet that time and nothing more)

L-R: my CDU friends El, Mary Fel, Essa & Aiken
Was really upset that time because I wasn’t able to take pictures :/
My phone died minutes after this shot

 Anyway, my mom arrived days after my birthday and I took her to the newly opened F21 since she needs to buy winter clothes for my dad (My dad is a stay in employee at Athens, Greece and he rarely goes out to shop for himself).
Of course I took a couple of stuff for me HAHA 😉

Newest turban being worn. ❤

I was really freaking out when I found  a row of gel eyeliners. Would you believe that it’s only 95php per tube? so I bought 2 since I’m going to be in Mindanao for quite a while and I’m sure it’s is going to be sold out in less than a week. I was dying to buy the one in Maybelline but it’s actually 400 bucks per tube.
Thanks F21 for this cheap bargain! ❤

Just last Saturday, I finally got my package from my close friend, Phyllis who has already moved to Miami years ago.

My new babies are very well taken care of. THANKS PHYLL!! ❤

So what if I can’t afford Topshop. I wanna be forever 21 anyway 😉 HAHA
And just recently, one of the most famous European brands, BERSHKA opened in Manila. And to honor that, I’m wearing a Bershka skirt right now haha.
Will cross my fingers for H&M  to open here in the Philippines too! But I tweeted them and they replied there are no plans yet 😦

Oh well hope you did not get bored with this post. More of Forver 21 soon!

It’s not everyday I turn twenty!


This is it. I am really doing my 20th birthday post. Weeks before, I had this birthday wishlist uploaded on my facebook and twitter. Let’s see how much love I got on my tweenTEENth natal day 😉


2 hours before the clock strikes to midnight, I got a text from my photographer friend, THE insensible anthropoid, Mary Fel (right). She told me that she’s in Bo’s raintree doing her case study and that I can maybe drop by to say hi. 2 of my CDU friends were there too, Aiken (left) and Alexa (middle).
So I went there with my cousin Bea only for a while because the Wolfpack decided to do a countdown while playing scrabble or charades 🙂
I sat down w/ them for 30 minutes then my co-wolf Christine who’s in the neighborhood came to pick Bea and me.


Surprise! Surprise!

I got mini cakes and cake pops from my friend Ethel who is currently taking baking classes. (Christine got this  while I was in Bo’s)

My cousins and I happily tasted all the goodies then we played our own version of Pinoy Henyo. It’s a game where the person next to you sticks a paper on your forehead and you have to guess what’s written on it.

Moments later, all the lights went out and I was panicking until my cousin Bea came out of the kitchen holding cupcakes with a number 2 candle and a cut-out 0 haha 😉

It was a happy, happy night! 🙂 We went on with a few rounds of the game and had a few drinks then went to bed.

When I woke up the next day…..

I found this package from my mom at the foot of my bed. She just came home from her Singapore vacation. I got really excited when I saw the box so I opened it anxiously, I didn’t even bother to wash my face haha.

Will make a separate post on what’s inside these loveys 😉

My mom attached a letter to her gift and made me bawl alone in the room.

Included inside the parcel is this MAC lippie! I will make a separate post about my reviews on this one also 🙂

After getting hyped with all the lovely stuff from mama, I just went back to bed and spent an afternoon wearing my jammies, watching Game Of Thrones on HBO. They had a marathon so my cousins and I lost track of time. We were supposed to be at the airport before 4pm because my cousin Alina is going to arrive from Vienna Austria.

Time went really fast! I had dinner with family and after, we went out to chill. The apartment was really scorching so we decided to catch up on some stories outside before my party begins.

Long and behold! My G6 lovies came putting me on surprise number 3.

Apparently, somebody sent me a cake through them. People kept on arriving and I was overwhelmed by how unpredictable my 20th birthday turned out to be.

That’s me in house clothes and sweating profusely…

G6 minus 2. I love you girls! And to the person who sent the cake, thank you!

I thought the surprises were over. Guess I was wrong. I got another batch of cute cupcakes from my cousin Bea

Was reminded by my own calendar that it’s my birthday HAHA.

LERIAS coven

WOLPACK in complete  attendance before the party started.

That’s 2 hours later. HAHAHA! our supposed formal pic.

Several moments later.. HAHA! 🙂

Inside the NYX box are 2 mineral based lippies from my girl, Garey.

LOVE it! You don’t even need to apply lipgloss for top coat and it lasts long.

This dream catcher is hand made by Master Wolf himself, @kumoto
YAY! No more nightmares for me.

I may not have all the money in the world and buy the things that I want but when I look at my family and friends, I realize I have more than enough. And that makes me rich :’)

Nail polish with a shield of armor, LITERALLY

Remember when I told you guys about the foil nail polish that I want and been searching forever? Well, apparently they are called *drum roll* FOILS. Haha SHOCKING.

nails that are weatherproof, chip proof and acts like a shield of armor.

Foils come in solid metallic colors just like the pictures shown above (from google)
If you guys happen to know where I could find and buy this, feel free to comment! 😉

CRACK! Goes my nails

I know you guys have heard about shatter/crack nail polish.
I’ve been dying to try those so when my mom went to SG, she bought me an OPI shatter and my friend Myka also gave me one on my birthday 🙂

My birthday nails! 🙂 I used Forever 21’s red nail polish as base before putting on the gold shatter. It was kind of hard because the consistency is thick due to the glitters.

See.. I have yet to perfect putting it.

The lavender base and the black shatter I used here are all gifts from my good friend Myka. She purchased it on The Face Shop. So psyched to know that FS has shatter already! and also this other Korean store, Etude House.

This last one right here is a combination of yellow and brown. The shatter I used is a Hong Kong brand which my lovie Essa bought during her vacation last November.

So there you go! My obsession to nail polish has become intense because of shatter/crack and matte. I am also trying to get this other kind of polish where the coat looks like foil in your nails.
(Photo below is from google)

will make a separate post about it 😉
Bye for now.
