I was tagged by Rachel(of Glee)-look-alike friend, Mary Ann of "There's Something About Maria" to answer these tough 10 questions. And because I love her, I took time to respond to her request.haha
- Why did you create the blog?
- What kind of blogs do you follow?
- Favorite makeup brand?
- Favorite clothing brand?
- Your indispensable makeup product?
- Your favorite color?
- Your perfume?
- Write the last question and answer it yourself.
Two of my close friends, Aika and Mike, are really good bloggers. I was inspired to do blogging because of them. My first few entries are all about random topics and for me it’s a bit boring. I realized that I have to be specific or at least focus on what I really love. ..and that is..you know na..UKAY! Then I found blogs of Ms.Denise , Mads, Little Miss Dress Up and some other fashion bloggers, I got interested doing mine also. They are my inspirations. They love thrift shopping and so do I. So why not show the world the beauty of “thrifting”? Then Mike convinced me to do outfit posts using my ukay(thrift) finds. I'm a bit hesitant. I’m not confident to show my poses and yes, be published online. It takes a lot of courage. Then gradually I found myself getting more obsessed with thrifting and doing outfit posts. I'm happy with what I'm doing and I'm forever grateful to my inspirations. (tissue please)
I follow blogs that interest me usually about food, photography and fashion.
Hala! Honestly, I don’t wear make-up. I only have Lipstick and face foundation. Extreme Shine for lipstick and Garnier for face powder.
*if you guys can recommend good make-up, please tell me. Thanks.
I’m not very particular with brands. As long as I feel comfortable with it, then go!
I can’t live without foundation!
Other than black and white, I also love RED and GREEN.
I’m not into perfumes. My head aches whenever I smell one. I prefer colognes. (ganun ako ka-boring.haha)
8. Your favorite film?
My ultimate favorites are REDCLIFF, BEFORE SUNSET, BEFORE
Matt Damon’s BOURNE (identity, supremacy and ultimatum) and Clint Eastwood’s. SUNRISE
9. What country would you like to visit and why?
Austria , Greece
and Hongkong Japan
and New Zealand
- concrete jungle where dreams are made of … New Yowk! (ah country ba?hehe)
What’s your craziest dream?

One thing I love about Philippines is that we can wear summery attire almost everyday. As much as I want to wear coats and boots like people on the other side are wearing now, I just can't because it's scourging hot here. And since you've seen me dressed in black in my previous posts, I decided to wear a floral top paired with my thrifted Steve and Barry's pink shorts yesterday for a grocery date with boyfriend.haha.
shorts: Steve and Barry's (thrifted); top: random boutique; sandals: Liberte

Last weekend, while we were strolling around the new place, I stumbled upon a thrift store and found this great pair of shoes. I am so into it and grabbed it right away because it's too pretty to let go. It's still in very good condition and it's made in Italy. I'm not familiar with the brand but it sure looks durable.This is, by the way, the best shoes I got from thrifting.
