I won't say that I am back, but let's just hope that the blogger bug will stay with me longer. Oh gosh, I missed blogging big time! I just don't have time to take photos or even think of a blog worthy outfit! Anyway, enough of the drama. 
Notice anything different? Yes? No? Hahaha. Okay, it's the wall!! I was in the mood and decided to add some decorations. I'm thinking of adding more. Any suggestions? I also thought that the decorations complimented my outfit very well. It's very quirky and fun! 
I actually got this "scalloped-cropped sweater-top" from Bea Benedicto's booth last BU5. The color is very pleasing to the eyes and the cut is sooo cute!! I wanted the top to be the focal point, so I paired it with white shorts and white sneakers. 
Another obsession!! Fujifilm Instax 7s! I've had this baby for quite a long time now and I thought it's about time to give this little one the spotlight! Oh and it perfectly matched the theme for today's outfit! 
Can I just say that I'm currently obsessed with 926727372 other things!!! Hahaha. I've been doing lots of DIY projects and these bracelets are to die for (or maybe not)! It takes me about 5-10 minutes to make one. 

Too bad you can't see the details of my necklace. But I swear it will appear in my upcoming Snapshot post. You better watch out for that. :)
Can you blame me? I was feeling all giddy and quirky!! Hahaha. 

Anyway, I've been doing lots of things lately. Things that I truly love. Will post details soon. :) For now, let's just be thankful for everything that has and will happen. Keep it comin'! I'm very much ready for it! <3

Another Chapter

After countless years of thinking, I've finally came up with a decision and chose to blog about this! Why did it take me too long to decide? Well, first of all, I thought this shoot was quite "daring". You'd usually see me in a top + shorts combo. And I've said (for a million times) that I'm more on the casual side. So this is really new to me. I looked so... (as they say) Fierce and Edgy! But i'm not complaining! Just look at how the photos turned out. I have to thank Genstein Yuzon (Hair & Make-up) and Chrysler Malinay (photo). You make a great team! :) Thanks a lot. ♥
Moving on... Today is the start of another chapter in my life. I'm leaving the "teen" bracket and moving to the young adults bracket. I really think that my age won't change anything. I mean, c'mon! I'll stay the same but i'm sure i'll be offering more. By that I mean, crazy-er, weird-er and of course, more positive with life. Well, you can't change overnight. Let's just see where this new chapter takes me and hope for the better. :) 
I just love birthdays -and weddings and any event that celebrates life. With that comes genuine happiness. It's overwhelming to receive and read everyone's birthday messages through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, E-mail and SMS.  I really appreciate it guys! I really do. This year has been amazing and I can't wait to start a new one or maybe just continue what I've started (i'll stick with that, it sounds more fun and better. :D). I love y'all like Tinkerbell loves Peter Pan. ♥ 

I can't thank everyone enough. It has been an amazing year and I hope it continues. ♥

More photos will be posted at facebook.com/VogueEsprit

Casualty of Love

A quick outfit post! I just noticed that I've been wearing a lot of red lately. Well, July is my birthday month! And it's best to celebrate it by wearing this so-called lucky color! Hahaha. 
To add more color, I decided to take this baby out! Blue and Orange = match made in heaven! ♥
I have tons of Snapshots lined up. But for now, i'll leave y'all with an outfit post. You'll be seeing this cutesy rounded shades from Romwe and a lot more. :)

Taking Chances

Aside from the book of Molly McAdams (which I just finished reading! Team Chase or Team Brandon? Hahahah. Anyway...), here I am taking my chances while the sun was up and brightly shining on my life. It was the perfect day to wear a full-on denim outfit!  
I know this outfit has summer painted all over it, but hey! That's the best part when you live in a country like ours! It's like summer all-year... well, minus the beach trips, sleepless nights and hanging out with your friends. 
This denim jumper (or whatever you call it) was actually a gift from my dad. He bought it when he went to Japan. I just wish I came with him. Boohoo. Oh well, at least my dad has great taste too. This is just one of the many things he got for me. Now I know where I got all "this" from. Love you, Pa! ♥
I'm awfully in love with my jumper. Oh, and if it isn't that obvious, the top part can be detached. I love items that can transform into all sorts of things. Hahahah. 
To top all of this denim crazyness. I decided to finish off my look with this denim cap. 
Oh yes, I'm obsessed! :P

My birthday is coming up in 6 days! And I don't have any plans! Hahaha. We'll see what happens.

Ultimate Ice Cream Experience

Cliche Alert!! Better late than never! Anyway, let's just get started... So last May 23, 2013, a sneak-peak preview for the media was held at the First Cold Stone Creamery store in Serendra. I'll explain what happened through photos and captions. :)

Can I just say that the interior of their store is really very beautiful? Kudos to whoever designed this! 
Just look at how packed the place was! Everyone was excited to get their hands on their Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream and personally feel the ultimate ice cream experience. 
Cold Stone Creamery is very different from the regular ice cream shops that you'll find in our country. They have 20 flavors that are made fresh daily, they have very fun mix-ins and they do their magic on a granite stone that is 15 degrees Fahrenheit in temperature! And yes, that's where they got their name! Cool, huh? 
Their crew can sing and dance! They actually had an American Idol-ish kind of audition. Hahaha. And they can do all these tossing and flipping with the ice cream. Additional point to the Cold Stone Creamery Team!! 
Mr. Michael McGill is the President of International at Kahala, where Cold Stone Creamery is a subsidiary of one of the fastest growing franchising companies in the world. 
The ribbon cutting ceremony was led by Mr. Michael McGill (Leftmost) and he was joined by ice cream enthusiast Sabrina Co, Canadian Ambassador Christopher Thornley, US Embassy’s Senior Commercial Service Officer Jim McCarthy, Gretchen Barretto, Boy Abunda and Karylle, along with Arizona Ice Cream COO Yuki Rosenfeld.
And of course, the event was attended by celebrities including:
1. Vicky Morales, RJ Ledesma and Vanessa Ledesma
2. Singer Amber Davis and DJ/Music Producer Marcus Davis 
3. Valerie Bondoc with David and Mai Kauffman and their kids.
4. Rambo Nunez, Luis Alandy, Julz Savard and Eri Neeman 
5. Karylle, Gretchen Barretto and Boy Abunda
6. Lyxen and Benjie Paras with their kids. 
Bloggeeeeers! Hahaha. Hi David, Trice and Seph
And this is my favorite part, Anthony Pangilinan, Karylle and Yael tested their catching skills! And they all caught their ice creams on their first try! Great job! :)

And now let's talk about their delicious, creamy and mouth-watering ice cream! But hey, the photo speaks for itself! So, no need to explain! Hahaha.
Cold Stone Creamery is now open at its first location in Serendra, Bonifacio Global City Taguig with telephone number (02) 846-0460. The second location will soon be opening in the Mall of Asia.

Another one for the books. And again, I wasn't there to do my "blogger duties". I was a part of the PR Team under Ms. Rochelle Romero! Fun, fun night!
