Maleficent

If you go black, you never want to go back.
That's the MALEFICENT fever!
http://lifestylehunters.com/angelina-jolie-style-icon/
Whether in a tuxedo, dress or pantsuit,
 Angelina Jolie can pull-off any classic look & make it award-winning.
Oh, she is definitely one of my style icons!
Who doesn't love her 'Angelina-strike-a-leg-pose' & her iconic Maleficent look?

So my OOTD for today is Maleficent-inspired,
Something versatile, wearable and fierce.
It ought to be all-black with a modern twist alright!
I'm letting go of my ferocious horns & cape in the mean time.
Shoes | Forever 21
I just love how stylish my top is.
Black feathers as my neckline accent---very Maleficent!
As they say, the devil is in the details baby.
Oh! Lovin' this find from my Clothes Buffet bag.
Top | Paper & Scissors
So where am I off to with this mysterious look?
Oh, somewhere posh and elegant, I shall be at.
(**without my wooden staff of course**)
Let's play Marco Polo, shall we?
If it's a 5-star hotel, it's something I won't dare miss.
And Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas is no exception.
So here are a few snapshots of my trip to Marco Polo:
The ambiance & interiors of Vu's was just amazing!
The sky bar lounge located at the 45th floor is simply a must-go place.
I'm literally blown away by its modernity and sophistication.
You'll definitely love the vibe and the al-fresco experience as much as I did.
The pig out place is on the 24th floor.
Cucina, with a seating capacity of 156, is quite small compared to Heat, Spiral & Circles.
I specifically loved their lobster, pizza & quiche Lorraine though.
For the price of Php2350nett on a Sunday,
 I'd say it's a limited buffet, but, no doubt, a quality one.
Oh, I can't wait to try Lung Hin at the 44th floor.
Who knows, I might drop by on Chinese New Year!
Maleficent's not really a bad fairy.
She's a good fairy with a big heart.

Thanks for joining me in my Maleficent goes to Marco Polo adventure.
'Til the next time fellow fashionistas, shopaholic & foodies!

WIMBLEDON

Do you have those days when you didn't feel like waking up?
Do you have those days where dreams were just better than reality?
Do you have those days when you just felt the world was watching over you?
Oh boy, this is seriously one of those days!
Jumpsuit | APARTMENT8
Shades | SHANA
Shoes | PARISIAN

New Year=New Look! 
What better way to start off than with the color that spells CLEAN SLATE best?!
Oh! White is a statement color in itself.
And obviously, an all-white jumpsuit can make anyone look glam.
I feel like a tennis player/supermodel/race track driver in this outfit!
Not only did I have those "wow" stares, but also that "donya" effect.
Oh surely, I can pass as a tennis player in the Wimbledon Tournament,

Or a Green Living Endorser,
Or even a race car driver.
With a solid color such as this, how can you not score some hearts?
Oh, something sophisticated, edgy & elegant---my kind of peg!
Imagine after all my photoshoots & tournaments,

I was still able to have a day tour of Japan,

A 5-star dinner at a posh Italian Restaurant,
                            
And of course, a taste of Belgium's best!
  
*Poof!*
Oh, it was just a silly dream!
'Tis the effect of my trip to the City of Dreams in Manila.
Oh, it's like enjoying Dubai all over again! <3

ANCHORS AWAY!

Aye Aye Captain!
Finally, our ship's ready to sail!
Time to welcome 2015 with a clean slate.
Off to another journey elsewhere...
Off to another road of self-discovery.
Dress | ZARA
Shoes | ADORA
Bag | SO FAB!
Wow! How time flies.
I can't believe I'm turning 26 already next year.
Oh yes, I've somehow surpassed my quarter-life crisis,
Assuming I live 100 years. (haha!)






Honestly, I have no fears of ageing.
It's more of the rising expectations, added responsibilities & future commitments.
I'm just not the kind of girl that lets anyone down,
As I, too, expect them not to let me down.
Everyone loves to travel---it's a given!
In my case, it's just pretty hard to balance work & play.
But once in a while, in my own little world,
I dream of packing my things and leaving everything behind.
(**Just for a couple of days** haha!)
 Yes, I'd love to sail across the Aegean Sea,
Waking up with a majestic and scenic view,
Have a bountiful breakfast in bed,
With a view deck that just leaves you oh-so-speechless.
Dress | ZARA
Shoes | ADORA
Bag | SO FAB!
Reality Check:
Life's just a roller-coaster ride!
Sometimes you're up, sometimes your down.
Often times, you'll fall down, get swerved by or be bumped off.

But whichever path you are in, 
Always have that 'game-face' on,
And let your positive attitude shine. 
Confidence is just like a sunshine that continuously radiates.
Let it affect people. 
Let it have an effect on you.
 To all my readers & supporters,
I wish you all love, happiness and success this coming 2015.
Remember that your past shaped your present,
And your present is your stepping stone to the future.
So start your year right, of course, with a bright outfit.
Wear something with circles or something that sparkles to celebrate the New Year with a bang!
I'm ending this year with a very relaxed sophisticated look,
With a chic, stylish and sexy look rolled in one.
Life should not be full of "What Ifs" & "What Could Have Beens".
Life should be an experience of everything unexplainable.
Laugh-Cry. Love-Hate. Be sheltered-Be Vulnerable. Break-Up-Make-Up.
Once you've been here & done that, you've LIVED.
