It's just plain Black and White

Lately I've been noticing myself magnetized to wearing black and white a lot lately. I don't know exactly where I'm drawing the need from but I tend to dress in black and white. From a black and white wool herringbone shorts, a plain white t-shirts, tank tops, black jeans, black flats, wedges, and sandals, they would be either, black and white, just black, or just white. And I'm finding it a little disturbing not in a bad way just been really trying to get color into my wardrobe and I just ultimately take the black tank top, white shorts, or the black and white zebra alegrias sandals that are most comfortable btw.  

Another thing the Philippines hasn't the most comfortable weather or atmosphere to be wearing black as it is too hot and black would just roast me alive or white cause of the smog that I feel like if i walked out in white I would return in a completely brown outfit but I guess that would be an exaggeration, it is however my opinion for the most part. 

But then again as I think long and hard about it what could possibly be wrong with wearing black and white, it's a timeless classic combination, I am, as I read up on my blog list that I am in good company. Take for instance Sandra from, and Rowan from With that in mind, it has not stopped me from doing so and loving every minute that I do. I just get really OC about where I go when I do go out in the said colors or the lack thereof. Check out these two ladies in their blogs for more inspiration as I look to them for my black and white inspirations.

Just an OOTD

Casual Cool if I do say so myself. 

My fiance's niece celebrated her 7th birthday with a party and and what better way to be dressed in than something loose and comfortable right. I figured games were going to be played and I needed to have that extra room as well for the delicious food. So I dressed in a loose sheer black tank top with a front panel that hangs from my right shoulder to the waist which by the way is from my stylish Godmother Monserrat. She also was kind enough to give me the red leather Coach bag. I paired them with the  blue chambray harem pants from my fashionista Aunt Celina and black leather and snake skin flats from Primadonna which i totally adore from my awesome possum mother dear. Yes yes and yes... my whole outfit was gifted/sponsored, hahaha and it isn't even my birthday. Don't I feel special. Anyway this is just my way of thanking them and showing them how much i appreciate their fashion senses. I may not have picked it all up just yet but I am seriously working on it.  I wish i  had taken more picture but the party was so much fun i forgot. 

I love this outfit. I would definitely wear again to another occasion for sure paired with outer articles of clothing in my collection and next time Imma going photo crazy. ;D

Well I know its been awhile so i hope you enjoyed the read. Hoping everyone a wonderful Halloween.

Friendship Bracelets

This is one of the main reasons why i have been MIA-ing. You've already read about the other reasons but this one was one that relieved all the stresses and yes there has been many as you will see with my collection. 

Who said you need friends to collect friendship bracelets? It was originally the idea but none of my friends has the time or the skills to do them. You can say i'm addicted and gladly so cause i am making my world beautiful one friendship bracelet at a time. I have shared with a few friends and family members cause they are very hard to part with especially knowing how much time that goes into them and the thoughts that poured out when i made each one. Thought about selling them but as i mentioned parting is such sweet sorrow i can't bare so until i can make them without attachment i'm afraid i will grow quite a bit of a collection. 

 This is what i started of with. I had no idea it would become so addicting making them. 

I call this the rainbow collection, for when you need a rainbow at arms reach cause you know sometimes it can rain all day and the rainbow after is too far to see.

this set i gave away to a godson and his girl friend and my aunt. 

Mom's watch needed a new watch band and i thought why don't i just make her one. ;D 

Recently discovered the flip flop zigzag pattern and i can't seem to stop making them as well. these are the ones i have left for myself.

These are a few of my favorite ones i made that i wear quite often. 

I also find them decorative contained in a glass container with all the  colors amplified through the glass.

Another way I store them is wrapped around an empty beer bottle. Now don't go drinking up all the beer, find an empty one already. This bottle kinda has sentimental value, it's the last bottle of beer i drank new years i think. anyway haven't had an alcoholic beverage since then not that i was ever an alcoholic or anything.

Anyway, i hope they have been fun to look at as much as i had fun making them. now go and create your own collection. You can learn to make friendship bracelets through an awesome

better late than never ;D

So i'm thinking it's better late than never... here is the ever late promised post regarding my shorts haul I posted here

RED SHORTS: Here, I've paired my red shorts with a white spaghetti strap top and black Fitflop, DIY tassel earrings made by yours truly and a stack of bracelets. Don't you just love the back of the chair i was sitting on at an ice cream/cake shop we visited a while back called BAKE AND CHURN at SM Marilao.

LEVI'S CROPPED SHORTS: I just love these, the look of a really short short but not too revealing. Paired with a hand me down ruffled sleeveless blouse with the tiniest blue flowers, a strawberry scented red belt and brown Fitflop, I totally feel sweet with a touch of edge.

LEOPARD PRINT SHORTS: My first ever animal print shorts paired with a skinny silver belt and pewter Fitflop and heather grey tank top..  

Due to a natural calamity, start of a small business, a few family members getting sick and my tablet (that contains most of the pictures i want to post about) not being able to sinc with my lap top, this is all I was able to come up with in photos not to mention a few Polyvore post. I seriously don't mean to disappoint or lag behind on my blog post but i hope you all understand that sometimes life really does get in the way, though I'm not complaining.  

SOOO, hope everyone is having an awesome weekend cause i know i did.
