Black top: Pink Manila; Tie-dye tank: Trunkshow; Tube top worn as skirt: Get Laud; Tights: Folded&Hung; Shoes: SM; Bag: LV
My friends and I were supposed to have dinner in Tagaytay (cooler part, South of Manila) but we decided not to because I couldn't find my eyeglasses and I can't drive longer distances with this poor eyesight of mine (200/20!). So we just ate dinner at Conti's in Nuvali in Sta. Rosa Laguna I'm officially in love with that place, Philippine readers you must go there! Nuvali is my favorite camwhore land from now on. Will go back there during daytime so you can appreciate the pics more. Good thing it's just 30 minutes away from home.

VERSATILITY is the "theme" of my outfit. I wore my blue tie-dye tank again! This tank is so versatile (it's her 3rd appearance on my blog, wore it here and here) and it's great for breaking up an all black outfit. Also wearing one of my closet staples -- the basic black tube top that I always always wear as a mini skirt. It's only 135 pesos (less than $3).

My holiday break is coming to an end. I think I'm gonna have holiday dinner withdrawals come January. I'm kinda sad to leave the Surgery Department because I had so much fun during my 2 months there.. Eeeekkkk OB-GYN rotation on January! Me not likey.

I'll be greeting you an advanced HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I'm duty on New Year's Eve so I won't have NYE dress post.=(
But I'm really excited for my Emergency Room duty tomorrow I hope I get to suture a lot!!

*crossing fingers* that we all can stick to our NY resolutions this time.=D

Backblogs and beyond

I love how this outfit looks "CHOPPED CHOPPED" with all the layers.
Align CenterBlazer: The Black Shop; Topshop pants; Landmark dress; SM dept store shoes; My DIY chain necklace

How was your Christmas? Hope it was fun and memorable. I was too busy cooking (only cooked spaghetti =P) and munching on Christmas eve that taking outfit pics escaped my mind so I don't have decent pics of my Christmas eve outfit. Just posting stuff from a few days before. =) This was after last minute christmas shopping and dinner with the family..

Today was spent in BF's house. We ate a lot like, every 2 hours, watched DVDs and played with our dog Stella. Just realized that it's also fun not to think of outfit pics and blogging and just enjoy.=P But now that I'm in front of my laptop again I must say I miss blogging, can't wait to catch up on everyone's blogs..=)

Same dress, different year

Wore this dress around this time 2 years ago at my friends' class x-mas party. Wore it again today but styled it differently. This time, I wore it with a knitted cardigan and ankle booties. Still love it with tights but I wanted to look more casual since we were just supposed to buy something in the mall and watch avatar but sister and I got lazy and decided to just have some pizza delivered at home and watch TV haha.. The traffic is super crazy!

December, 2009
Dress: Limited; Knitted Cardigan: Landmark; Shoes: Janeo
December, 2007Hello "pa-nene" Dharn!=)
As usual, we were videoke-ing again.
I think we were singing a Spice Girls song.
I love the stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut!
I think I like it more than the original pizza.

So tell me, which look do you like most?
Look 1: dress + tights
Look 2: dress + knitted cardigan
Look 3: dress + knitted cardigan + belt

Tomorrow is our Intern's Christmas Party!
It's going to be a swimming party but my friends and I decided not to go swimming
because we're playing tong-its (card games) instead.
Oh what fun!!=D

I heart my friends.

Pajama turned into blazer: Surplus Shop; Forever 21 shirt; Shorts from a bazaar; Renegade fold shoes; Folded and Hung chain necklace

I wore my $3 pajama turned into blazer.
Wore it with a relaxed white shirt and bright colored shoes so that I won't look matronic because sometimes leopard print makes you look older, but it always depends on the styling..=)

In between drinking, videoke-ing and munching, my friends and I would sneak outside for a mini photoshoot and to gossip a little. We were supposed to take pictures on the street near the big trees but some stray dogs didn't like the idea and kept on growling at us. We were so scared but we still kept on trying haha. In the end we just opted for the garage and walkway in my friend's apartment. I am super happy that all my friends are always willing to take my pictures. Even before I started blogging they have always been tiyaga (patient) with my demanding camwhore needs haha! We can't be friends if you can't take good shots of me, unless you play very good Tong-its (card games) haha! Yes, only 2 requirements.=P

Yey for Christmas parties, dressing up and camwhore sessions!=)

Question to bloggers out there:
Who takes your outfit photos when you're outside and can't take your trusty tripod with you?

White Out + Perricone Giveaway Winner

Kinda disappointed that we had to wear white tops and jeans as costume for our dance number because I actually planned on wearing a dress. Kinda a last minute announcement good thing I had a decent white top hiding in my closet here in my apartment. And oh yes, I do not have a flat iron! As you can see, the pleats in my top look like a mess haha..=)
Yay they let us join the Christmas party despite us being on duty. In case you're wondering why I'm sitting on a wheelchair, it's already a tradition for the Surgery Christmas party that the person who is the most drunk gets to be pushed into a wheelchair and brought down from the penthouse of the hotel into his/her car. How embarrassing! And no, I was not that person haha.. The throne/wheelchair is only for Surgery residents, (I am still an intern) just sat on it for photo-op purposes as usual haha. We didn't even get to eat or drink because we thought there weren't food left so we just transferred to a place nearby for some food and drinks.
White top and Jeans: Plains & Prints; Platforms: SM dept store; Mango bag from Le boyf; Chanel earrings
I felt so tall the whole night. Look at how high my platforms are! The shoes are

not exactly new, they're remnants of my birthday shopping loot and I only got to wear them last night.

When we were about to go home, we all agreed to stop by the Pinoy Big Brother's house as it was super near the Christmas party venue. Surprised that they weren't too strict with regards to taking pics and getting near the house. There were 2 guards at the entrance door. Sorry for the crappy pics. I forgot that my camera works well with lowlight. Shouldn't have used the flash. Super fun camwhoring with my co-interns! We love wacky pics..=)

You won my Perricone Cold Plasma Giveaway!
Thank you Perricone MD for this great giveaway.=)

My Holiday Essentials

The holiday seasons are here and holidays = dinner with friends, family reunions and the endless Christmas parties. I do not plan to shop for myself this December since I'm kinda broke, the malls are in a state of chaos and I'm waiting for the sales on January. Also, I want to maximize the pieces that I already have in my closet. So I'm making this my season for mixing and matching! Here are some the pieces that I plan to incorporate into my holiday dressing. Most of these are old stuff from my closet except for the hair thingies..=) Since I'll be wearing my old mostly gray/black clothes I'll just add these few pieces to make my look a little bit more festive. (All from SM department store)
Headbands with rhinestones or feather details are a cheap way to instantly liven up an all black ensemble.(Unbranded fringe scarf; Patricia Field for Marks and Spencer scarf)
Probably the only time I could wear scarves for its real purpose -- to keep me warm!Tights can polish a look in an instant.
You can also wear them with your too short dresses that's been hiding in your closet.

(Aldo earrings)
We all need a pair of big, bold statement earrings in our life.
Now's the best time to buy if you still don't have one.

Solo Men's Jacket; Thrifted $1 blazer
Thank God for the Christmas breeze! I can now rock my blazers/jacket without looking like a Sweaty Betty.

(Yellow clutch and Black clutch with gold detail: Forever 21; Plastic structured clutch: CMG)
Arm candies!
I unearthed my woven oversized clutch in my closet. Yey I thought I lost this yellow baby. The smallest one was the clutch I used during my graduation last April. The black one with the pyramid stud is such a steal I got it for $10.

stylebible.phLast but definitely not the least -- Make-up! Make-up is an essential this holiday season. The party season is the perfect excuse to get dolled up and try new looks. I will always be loyal to the smoky eye look as it is the look that I've kinda mastered but I will also try experimenting with my new palette that I got from the bazaar.

These pics were taken last Sunday. The siblings and I had dinner at our favorite restaurant Cibo.
Janilyn snakeskin pumps, Brother's Vans sneakers. I don't know what brand of shoes my sister wore that day.
Sorry for the slow updates. It's just that I made an early New Year's resolution to study for at least 2 hours everyday including weekends. And since November 25, I've been sticking with the plan very very well. I'm buying myself Royce chocolate next week if I continue on doing so haha..Hopefully, I'll get to post more since I'll be going out a lot this December.

Tomorrow is Surgery's Christmas party and I'm on duty (AGAIN!) at the ER! Booo.. I don't know if we could make takas (sneak out of the hospital) later into the night but we still have to ask the chief Surgery resident for permission..=( I SERIOUSLY WANT TO GO!

Free food + an excuse to dress up = a happy me!

Fear not the weapon but the hand that wields it.

Note to self: Get my roots retouched and never leave the house without concealer.=P
Blazer: Plains & Prints; Forever 21 shirt; Flats: Charles and Keith; Bag: SM; My old trusty DIY chain necklace
It's December and I can feel the Christmas breeze! Time to whip out the blazers yey! I've always loved the blazer + shorts look but
I get really cold easily. Times like these I wish I wasn't such a "ginawin" person. Is it just me or is it colder this year than the last no?

this is my school shoes that I also wear elsewhere because it's so cute! it is patent and has GIANT ribbons and crystals.

Hallooooooooo!! What are you guys up to lately? I just finished watching Ninja Assassin with my medschool friends Dharn and Maneesh. Awesome movie. For someone who has seen lots of gory stuff in the ER, I still find it a tad gruesome for my taste. Actually thought it was a Quentin Tarantino movie because of all the blood. But all in all, I liked the movie a lot. LOL we were so noisy in the movie house because my friend, Dharn is SUPER SUPER in love with Rain! We kept on commenting about how great Rain's body was everytime Rain's topless and that is like 80% of the movie.

I hope they incorporated a dance number somewhere in the storyline haha.=P

Best comment of the night:
"Ano ba yan andilim dilim naman ng palabas na to!" "Syempre ninja nga e!"

Tagged by Michelle + late bday dinner

Follow me on twitter!
These pics were taken last week but I was too lazy to resize and edit pics. Belated birthday dinner with my closest medschool buddies.
Fun night -- my favorite sushi + favorite people in medschool!
Get Laud multiway dress; Jacket: Archae0logy @ Powerplant; Australian Shoes; Rings: Junkfood and SM
Haha told them I want a full skirt shot so I kept twirling and twirling and I actually got dizzy and almost lost my balance because I was laughing. Passersby probably thought I'm some crazy girl haha
I love this jacket because the fabric is very unique. It looks like the fabric used by old people's pants. Kinda feels like a cousin of the wool/houndstooth fabric. Love the surprising blue piping detail.

With my friends Ninoy, Caps and Nsh (aka inukit na manika!)

The cutie Michelle from glisterandblisters tagged me to find 7 purple things in my room . At first I thought I wasn't going to complete the 7 things because I'm not really a purple person. (I think I only have 2 purple pieces of clothing) After looking a little harder, I actually found 8. yey! Thank you Michelle for this fun tag! Go check out her blog and drool over her yummy bags and other accessories!=)
Dress from my friend's bazaar.
Love the tie-dye/feathery-ish print of the dress!

Wanted to show you what's inside my Histopath book.
The print would look great on a dress right?

I want to tag Leah, Denise, Hanh, Giovanna, Mike, Qin, Raisa to find 7 RED things inside their room or house. (I used to have a red phase highschool/early college days) Hope you'll have fun doing the tag!

Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone!
Hope you have a good one..
Thank you for continuously reading and stopping by my blog.=)
Hope my blog brings a smile in your face somehow.
