Found our old camera and it still works! :)
Print On Print
I get to play dress up only every weekends. I go to work wearing basic top and jeans because I commute and ride the MRT on a weekday. It would be a hassle if I’d wear a skirt or a dress. Anyway, here’s last weekend’s OOTD:
I wore a stripped low back top together with a high waist polka dot skirt-shorts. Although I love to mix and match printed clothes, I usually wear print on plain, this was out of my comfort zone. It was my first time to try a print on print outfit outside home.
What’s on me:
1. Stripped Low Back Top which I bought from Jelly Bean.
2. Polka dot Skirt-Shorts which was thrifted and a vintage belt which I got from my mom. Can you believe that this belt is older than me? lol. It was my mom’s back when she was in college. I love wearing these because it’s comfortable, I can squat and run with this haha!
3. Skull Studded Bag (thrifted), Sunnies (Japan Surplus) and Stuuded Flats from Tout a Coup. I love black because everything goes with it.
That’s it for now! You can hype this look on Lookbook.nu <3
Thanks for dropping by! :)
See you soon!!!! Can’t wait any longer @the1975
Settle Down by The 1975 (LIVE)
I freaking love this song <3
Pause It Play
I’ve been listening to their album and also their live performances on YouTube all day (while at work, sorry >.<). I love the vibe of all of their songs. Chocolate and Robbers are my favorite tracks. Also their style is rad. Casual black and white classics never cease in fashion.
I’m crushing on Matty Healy. He’s my new baby, sorry boyfriend :))
I love them and I can’t wait to see their live performance here in Manila on March.
Thrift Haul X Cubao Expo Hits
I’ve been a junkie collector ever since and I always find vintage stores amusing. I went to Cubao Expo yesterday afternoon to hunt for collectible goods.
Here are the things I bought:
1. Vinyl Records
I actually bought like 8 pieces of vinyl records because I want to recycle and create something out of it. Maybe hang those somewhere in my room and use those as decorations - yea, something like that.
2. Comic Books
Bingo! Archie Comics! I had a few of these when I was a kid and somehow lost them while growing up. Oh well, now I found a couple of them, lucky day.
3. Booklet and Old Photos
I found this 1985 poetry booklet (it’s so dainty) and old Catholic photos lying in a box. The owner of the shop gave these for free. I’m not a Catholic but I appreciate religious art. They think I’m weird but I like it! I plan to pin this on my cork board in my room as part of my card collections.
Note to self: I shall junk shop again soon!
Thanks for dropping by <3
This was yesterday’s outfit. I usually wear dresses or skirts every Sunday to look presentable at church.
Hype my look here: http://lookbook.nu/look/5880369-Stradivarius-Sleeveless-Top-Thrifted-Skull-Studded
What I’m wearing:
I love this top because the print on it says “All I Need is Love and a Cat”. I love cats! :3
2. Houndstooth printed skirt
I found this skirt in a thrift store not so far from where I live. This skirt was too big and long for me but (I just have to get this!) I was in love with the print so I bought it and had it altered.
3. Skull Studded Bag
This is my favorite bag. I use this almost every Sunday. I really love thrift stores cause you get to find cool, unique and affordable items like this bag.
4. Suede Oxfords
I’m really into British fashion. Topshop is one of my favorite clothing stores. I think everything there from accessories to footwear suits my personality. But if you’re on a tight budget, I’d recommend you to go thrift shopping instead (you could find items there similar with Topshop). Items here are kinda pricey.

D.I.Y. HOMEMADE HAIR BLEACH
Last weekend, I dyed my hair because it looked so plain. I used to have brownish ombre hair then black roots appeared and I’m not really confident with black hair. I waited for 6 months to dye my hair again just so it won’t get damaged.
The color that I used was a mixture of Medium Blonde and Dark Reddish Brown from Martix So Color. I wanted my hair to look vibrant and bright so I wouldn’t look pale. When it was done, I was unhappy with the outcome. It was still dark as if nothing happened (what I saw) and I wanted my hair to be lighter.
I know for a fact that it will get lighter eventually but I wanted to make the process fast so I did my research. I found this Vitamin C treatment used as an alternative for bleach without damaging your hair. So, I tried it after a week and it did work!
I want to share with you guys the steps on how to make your hair look lighter the natural way. So, here are the steps:
Things you’ll need:
1. Vitamin C (15-30 tablets)
4. Mixing spoon
5. Bowl or plastic cup
6. Shower Cap
1. First, you have to crush Vitamin C tablets to a fine powder. You can use a stone, rolling pin or a this vitamin C bottle as tool for crushing.
2. Next step is to mix crushed vitamin C with shampoo. You’ll be needing 3-4 tablespoons of shampoo but it depends with the length of your hair. The mixture should look like liquid cement or pudding.
3. Apply the mixture to hair and make sure it is evenly coated.
4. Use a shower cap or a plastic bag to cover your hair to keep it heated. Leave it for at least 2 hours. Then rinse.
5. Use a conditioner after you wash the Vitamin C mixture. It’s important to keep your hair moisturized after this treatment.
6. Dry hair and you’re all set!
Here’s my before and after proof:
P.S. I looked haggard so I used my cat face instead :)
NOTE: If you want your hair to be a bit more lighter than mine, soak it for more than 2 hours and if you’re not contented with the outcome yet, do this treatment once a week. Remember that this may cause dryness of hair so don’t forget to use conditioner.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions about this post. Thank you for dropping by! :)
