LOOKBOOK: Modern Victorian

Hey everyone! So it’s my second day in Manila and so far, I got a lot of things planned out which I will be sharing with you all in the next few days. But for now, let me tell you about my first day and share my #ootd.

Yesterday, my sister officially graduated from University. It was a long eventful first day in Manila because my cousin also celebrated her 18th birthday later in the evening.

We started the day at 4AM as the ceremony starts at 8AM and my sister needed to be there by 7. Since Manila traffic can be unpredicatable, we scheduled to leave by 6AM the latest. Lucky enough, there weren’t any traffic at all hence we reached PICC in 20mins.

The ceremony ended by 11AM and we headed off to Brasserie on 3 at the Conrad Hotel, Manila for lunch. The food was okay but I was disappointed as the sushi menu was well, disappointing. And I do like a buffet with a good sushi and sashimi selection. Lol. But enough with the blabbing, after lunch we went home and I did my makeup for my cousin’s debut.

And as the title suggests, this is my modern take on Victorian fashion. Sexy, and sophisticated!

TRAVEL: Bohol, Philippines 2016

(This is a long overdue post)

Bohol has been on my bucket list since I can remember because I’ve always been amazed by the Chocolate Hills! So as it was a well deserved break for me after months of hell at work, and a late birthday treat to myself as well, I decided to drag my sister and booked for Tagbilaran as soon as I found the best available air fare rate online.

Day 1

We flew in to Bohol via AirAsia Philippines and despite the expectations of a delay, the flight departed on time, flew smoothly, and arrived 10mins prior to expected arrival time – so that was impressive!
