Not your grandfather's "Conan"

At first I had doubts of watching this because if I remembered it correctly, it was from the 80's. But then he started telling me "minsan lang kita yayain manuod" haha! my heart melted! I thought, it wouldn't hurt naman if I watched this hunky dude diba? then I kept on imagining Conan's chest and arms, hahaha!!!

weird fried chicken

Busy Ayala triangle branch of Bon Chon
I heard a lot of good reviews from my foodie friends about how good the chicken tastes here at Bon Chon, so with my boyfriend and our vow to "Always try something new" we went optimistic to their Ayala Triangle branch :)

Iv'e been thinking how I could accessorize the thrifted lace top that I bought a couple of weeks ago. Since 70's/ boho fashion is so popular nowadays, I think that it would be the best accessory that could toughen up a sexy black lace top.

I just love Landmark! :) they have a large variety of affordable accessories that you wouldn't have any excuse not to buy one.

DIY newspaper nails :)

Just browsed around my pinterest account today and saw something so interesting that my friend Khel and I tried it for ourselves. Here was the original pin that inspired us:

Webcam photos for outfit posts?

I woke up yesterday thinking how I could take more photos for outfit posts sans a DSLR camera tripod (since I am still saving up for it, hehe...) Napagtrippan ko ang webcam :P

that's what I wear at home, a big comfy tee and shorts :)

Finally bought the Samsung netbook I've been eyeing for months, the Samsung NC10-AO2 PH. It took me awhile to decide if I should buy a small netbook or a laptop. Since my boyfriend's laptop was a Samsung, he recommended that I'd buy one in that brand too. So here she is, my Sammy:

Groupon date at Tender Bob's

Here's a cheap date trick that I am sharing for those couples who wanted to try something new but are also saving up for something big (like "the big day") *wink.

A lot of groupon sites popped up this year, there's cashcashpinoy, metrodeal, ensogo and for the higher end deals there's dealgrocer. But still keep in mind that even though you are getting the deals in lower amount doesn't mean that you have to buy every deal that pops up ( I knew a few people who does that) Anyway, I bought this cashcashpinoy voucher a couple of months ago so that my boyfriend and I could try other restaurants but with half the price, the problem was we really didn't had the time; as what I've told from    a previous post, its hard to be an Army girlfriend because you'll just never know when you could spend the time together; so we rarely plan our dates.

Good thing, he just came back from a mission from Bicol the day before and has time to spend with me, *kiligkilig! off to Tender Bob's Greenbelt!

checking out their flyer while waiting for the real menu (and started to compute in my head :P)

Review: E.L.F. Studio Eyebrow Kit

Create brows that are fuller, thicker, and more defined! The pigmented wax defines and shapes brows and the color complementing setting powder keeps them looking arched and perfected. The doubled sided taklon brush has one side to help arch your brows while the other side aids in filling them in. This duo provides lasting color definition for a naturally beautiful look. source

Bought this one way back when I was still working at the hospital, thus for the late review.

I woke up yesterday with a serious drive to complete the next collection and a really bad cold. tsktsk... I guess it was because of the change in weather (which I hate) not to mention, not being able to take photos of the next collection on our backyard. Luckily, my papa bought a big Styrofoam board so that I can have a decent white background. Here are some shots of my humble room/ studio (feeling lang) haha! :P 

Attached it to the wall with double sided tape
I decided that it would be more appropriate for the products to be photographed against a white background, so that the focus would be on the clothes.

Clinic Photoshoot

I was off duty yesterday but I was requested to come by the clinic for a quick photo shoot for the company's organizational chart. Since Shinagawa is a Japanese company, it was very fitting to be made up by a Japanese Hair and make up artist too :) Geeky as it might sound, I was so excited and anxious to be photographed. I felt like I was just more comfortable to be behind the camera. 

Here I am with Glen, Akira's assistant.

Here's my very gloomy "before" photo
Notice the sparse eyebrows and dry "curly top" hair, hahaha!!! I badly need a makeover stat!

At Dads with our "clinic dad"

Kc and I went to Dads Glorietta branch last night after our clinic duty to confirm our company's reservation.
We were all so excited to eat out with the whole staff despite the strong rain. We then entered the restaurant and sat down on two of the 30 seats reserved. Vera asked us to take some of her favorite grilled Salmon that we then ended up eating before they even arrived hahaha!
