SHOES / Intentionally _______

ahhh it's been a while that i've posted something. Blame it on  our 100 yr. old laptop which recently expired a month ago.  It served us a really impressive length of time so it's okay, no dramas! I had to borrow someone's laptop to post something. Well i can live life without too much technology. I have my phone but I rarely hardly barely check it . I have been  watching Sex and the City episodes on DVD with my bf and i workout and work . That's about it! and the best part is I am happy and contented. Just when I thought that my life of quietude wouldn't be shaken by a material possession , a gift from the heavens arrived at my doorstep. In this case - a square toe mustard shoes from ..... Intentionally Blank. Not from the heavens but from LA.  Still. I've always been wanting to buy a pair from this label however I am on a detox shopping to save money for our big trip next year. But a huge mammoth THANKS to Ty McBride- creative director and le designer of this cool hip fresh footwear label from LA and he happens to be my good friend on the other side of the universe. Shoes have always been our link. We met a couple of years ago when he did the SOLESTRUCK campaign and we styled the cookbook . It was fun! and now he is still haunting me with lovely shoes. I am still a shoe addict andI am just not sure when this cold turkey of shoe shopping detox will end . LOL . Seriously , it doesn't hurt to try new shoes from time to time especially if it is this good!!!


CLOTHES / Skin shirt , Awkward Beauty

Skin shirt / DIY

Wearing this is like carrying a second skin. It's really heavy and it feels awkward when I wear it on but on the same note  I like awkward. I find beauty whenever a person wears something peculiar and interesting. I am just so tired with overperfection and rules ( "this flowy top should go with this flared pants") . When something doesn't fit or look as expected by the norms, people begin to notice. I think people have gotten used to detect things in their daily activity that bothers them ( even if it should not) . Things that disrupts the normal flow of things but what is normal  btw?  Oftentimes we hear people : "My white shirt has a lot of crease " , "your jacket is 3x your size" ,  "my coffee is too sweet" , or " lipstick is too red for her hair color" . The other day i couldnt stop staring at a girl who was  wearing a pair of hyper distressed pants in the mall, a dead ringer of Margiela's shredded pants. She was so confident and I love love the way she carried the outfit . For others , it would be an abomination , a violation of the normalcy of the pants. For Me:  A breath of fresh air among the sea of goody goody normal pants and it was a sight to see indeed.  Theres always something nice about something wrong 


BEAUTY / Bases by NARS

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation / Barcelona
NARS Sheer Glow / Stromboli

These are my go-to bases whenever I feel my skin is so dry from all the AHA's and BHA's. It's so hard sometimes to have that beauty routine. You put product to make you look natural and in the process you may lose that natural-ness . But these 2 are amazing. I love the Sheer Glow better though because it goes on smoothly and a pore-less finish is achieved. However, for some weird reason, I like the sleek minimal packagin' of the All Day Luminous' bottle. I am a sucker for nice font styles too which makes N A R S  a winner. 


RUNWAY / Jacquemus Spring 2016

I have always admired anything (clothes)  that is spliced and fractured , fabrics draped in unimaginable proportions, details that change the way we perceive things. Akin to a surreal art, Jacquemus' collection was almost a dream-like inception. I just love how he maneuver a supposedly tailored piece. Just look at the grey coat that resembles a dress and that cute skinny strap hugging the model's frail shoulders. I would trade this look in exchange for the drab and serious mood of the office code of dressing. It's 2015 already and Jacquemus is doing us a favor. His creativity and concept is beautiful! AND THE SHOES ARE BEYOND!!


OUTFIT / Favourites

shirt / Ytinifninfinity
pants / Jeanasis

A big foamy shirt . empty room. wide pants . sandals . and my chair. and a perpetual sense of stillness for the day . I couldn't ask for more.


BEAUTY / La Roche- Posay Skincare

La Roche Posay EFFACLAR
La Roche Posay SENSI WHITE
La Roche Posay TOLERIANE

It was love at first sight when I encountered La-Roche Posay at Priceline. The cosmeceutical  French brand is giving me life right now. With its minimal look, gentle formula and yes...their asian-skin targeted products. I love the Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel which smell reminded me of the Diptyque colognes. Whenever I want to cleanse my face in the morning which doesn't require too much foam and suds, I reach for the Toleriane cleanser which is akin to the ever-popular Cetaphil. The last one would be the whitening serum - the Sensi White Essence which I love heaps save for the sticky after feel. But when applied at night, It is packed with Vitamin C hence expect to wake up feeling bright and refreshed. If you ever feel intimidated with the funny French names and words on the packaging, please don't. Let it be an avenue for curiosity like I did and try one or two or 8 of their products and be amazed..
