Budoy Today

Exactly a year ago, I blogged about some new additions to our family; four- legged best friends that became close to our hearts and were treated as true siblings. Its a great feeling to show you guys an update on how Budoy's doing.

This was Budoy a year ago,, the cute scraggly dog.
Look at Budoy today after the break :)

9 Days of Christmas Bazaar: Day 3

This is it Day 3! We had to make the most out of this day, not only in terms of sales but also to meet and bond with our booth sisters and neighbors :) 

We decided to dress our mannequin in my current favorite look, "Military and Lace"

9 Days of Christmas Bazaar: Day2

Since day 1 was a bit of a lull, my sister and I did a few adjustments with our booth, small details like changing a pom pom ball from white to green because it looked better in photos, changed the arrangement of our clothes by placing our tees on the bottom rack and our vintage pieces on the upper rack. We also changed some of our accessories on display.

We sold a lot of tees that night :)

9 Days of Christmas Bazaar Day 1

At last! after weeks of photo shoots, our bazaar stint and a wedding  I'll finally have time to blog (you could expect more soon!) :) First up is Day 1 of our participation in the 9 Days of Christmas Bazaar.

It was really weird that I was very calm that day; actually my mind was telling me to feel the nerves, but I just felt...calm, and sleepy even :P So we had all our stuff packed days before, all that was left was to get the table, chairs, mannequin and clothes rack to our garage, once that was done, my sister and I ate a hearty breakfast.

That's me and my lil sis :)
More awesome photos after the break! <3

A Vintage Picnic Love Shoot

My sister and I have been talking about pursuing styling, well..engagement styling in particular, as a means of expanding our market for our online vintage clothing store. So as soon as my friend Darlene agreed to be our first customer, we started with the planning ASAP.

Here's a sneak peak
I never really thought that engagement shoots were this labor intensive! We were also lucky that our bride-to-be was very hands-on and did the props for the set. All we had to do that day was assist them with their clothes change, show pegs to the Make up artist and set up the picnic area. And I thought is was that easy, specially when it started to rain so hard after we had set up! waaahhh!

Oh the challenges that we went through that day, good thing we were surrounded by very supportive people.

We were also very lucky to have the opportunity to work with the couple's young and creative team, Ruffa and Mike Photography, Marvin Barbarona and Khite Bautista.

Here's what went on that day:

The Lost Valentine


"Now you have my heart,
Keep it next to yours,
and bring it safely back to me.
I will always love you"


I've had this habit of watching really romantic movies that were mainly about long distance relationships to... I guess help me cry out my pent up emotions whenever my soldier's away on a mission, though it might seem weird for some, its therapeutic for me.

I've watched, Dear John, The Notebook, P.S. I Love You and The Time Traveler's wife over and over just because knowing that I'm going through something that's similar to what they are experiencing makes me treasure more of what I have right now.

I've been looking for movies to watch on YouTube and then I stumbled upon this made  for TV movie, The Lost Valentine.

Bag Shopping in the Men's Section

Are you very particular when buying bags like me? I take a lot of things in consideration when I buyone. It has to be roomy, the material and straps should be sturdy enough to hold my net book safely and the design should also go with most of the clothes that I wear. My sister makes fun of me nga for buying a bag for work once a year so it really must be durable, hahaha!

So one night after work, my sister and I tried to buy a bag from the Men's section of SM Department store and boy are we in for a surprise! :)

Travel bags with wheels and shoulder bags in great designs in sturdy canvass and leather material

Their bags are more beautiful and sturdier than the bags in the Ladies Section! :D

My New Skincare Regimen

I have been battling acne for a couple of weeks now and it really lowered my self- esteem :( I was lucky though I have a couple of sweet Derma friends that are continuing to help me with my skin problems that my skin's starting to clear up! :) 

I totally forgot that I should not be trying on make-up or skin care that much because of my sensitive skin. From now on, I'll be sticking on products that really works for me and forget making my face a guinea pig for other products, I'm not as lucky as the make up gurus I'm watching that doesn't have skin like mine that gets irritated easily.

I just want to share you girls a couple of products that I am using, a few tips on how to use them and my experience during the treatment, and maybe it'll be beneficial for you too! :)

BTS: Endless Summer (indoor)

A few weeks ago, we were fortunate enough to have our products photographed by my friend Karen at our makeshift home studio; it was as usual a lot of fun! The best part was, we brainstormed about the outdoor shoot at Buddy's over a warm plate of Pancit Lucban and yummy Bacon and Pepperoni Pizza. 


Here's a little sneak peak on our shoot :)

Sister Style: She's Got Claws!

Sorry I have been MIA this past few weeks, I have been undergoing some Tretinion treatments to calm my breakouts. I was planning to pile on some make up to cover them up but on second thought, I think I'll just leave them be and heal. So anyway, my sister's had exposure on my blog and my shop already, I'd like you to see her in her own clothes so that you can check out her style too.

Striped top, Jeggings, Black Cardigan- Landmark, Shoes- SM Parisian, Claw Earrings- OASAP

Hello there little Max, Happy Birthday! :)
We were instructed to arrive Jollibee, Macapagal branch 30 mins earlier, so we had a lot of time having our photos taken with the super adorable birthday boy.

coincidence? 080712

Tuesday: (clockwise) monitoring the flood outside our house, croki enjoying the bed weather, the government suspending work in private offices.

Genesis 8:7-12 

7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro , until the waters were dried up from off the earth. 8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; 9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her , and pulled her in unto him into the ark. 10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; 11 And the dove came in to him in the evening ; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off theearth. 12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.

Project: couple shoot :)

A couple of posts ago, I had a collaboration with my friend Karen Luzon for our latest collection; and for weeks now we’ve been planning another shoot to add to her portfolio, a couple shoot! J well, it would be presented as an engagement shoot but we’d like to call it a couple shoot since my boyfriend and I aren't engaged "yet" (imagine how our parents would think when they find out that we were going to have a prenup shoot without their knowledge! *well this actually happened, my mom asked me about this and we clearly told her it was a COUPLE SHOOT, haha!) .

we've had a lot of photos taken from our camera phone but we'd love to have  a styled shoot :)
We were supposed to do the shoot last weekend but typhoon “Ferdie” had good timing wrecking havoc in Metro Manila; so there we were a bit sad cause of the weather but thankful that it would buy us more time to prepare the clothes (more trips to the thrift shop!) and the backdrop and props that would make our shoot more interesting and a little less amateur (we’ll try our best J )
