I've Moved!

It's been months and I am finally back to blogging.
I thought my change of everyday, scenery, and pace warranted a change of web address too.
You can follow me here.

I would definitely love to get reacquainted.
see you on the flipside! ♡

I'm Back!

So the delinquent blogger is back. I do apologize the M.I.A. status for the past few weeks; I've been pretty busy going around Manhattan and soaking in all I can from the city. As of right now, I am typing this lying on my bed, my own bed, back home. I am back in Manila! It is kind of bittersweet, I am back home but missing New York. Now is just about that time that I go back to work, I have been spending way too much and earning way too little (try nothin) the past few months and it's time I crash back to reality. Still trying to feel my way through this, but I definitely have not ruled out changing zip codes in the future.

So more of my Montreal friends came for a visit and we had a blast!

If the still-nippy weather has been no indication, my allergies have told me that Spring has indeed come.  Bring out the plaids, florals, and brights! My favorite kind of clash dressing is finally in season once again.

I've also been in a head band craze as of late.

There's a DIY one that was born out of pure obsession, coming up next.

I never used to like Vanessa in Gossip Girl. I always thought she was boring and I didn't like how they paired her up with Nate! But all that changed when I saw Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick shopping in Urban Outfitters. Now I adore her. She is just gorgeous and so sweet! I thought Ed Westwick looked better than Chuck with his disheveled hair and oh-i-just-rolled-out-of-bed-and-threw-this-leather-jacket-on vibe.
They were such a cute and affectionate couple!

So spring is officially here! YAY. No more cold, frigid winter; only clear, sunny skies and the crisp air of spring. The city is just lovely and I am as in love with it as ever.

Bracelets and necklace, Forever21. Watch, the boyfriend's. Leggings and plaid layered tunic, Urban Outfitters.
Floral tank and denim jacket, H&M. Studded belt, Mossimo. Sequined headband, H&M.

An afternoon with a green tea latte and a good book = contentment.

Cristophe Dercarnin is a genius. He reworked the shoulders and bling trend he brought out last spring for this year's fall line. It's all rock chic and glitzy glamour in black, silver and leather.. Please excuse me while I drool.

hope you all had a good weekend!

190th Street

Friday the 13th, last week.
It was a pretty awesome day. I received a hundred and one greetings and compliments. (I'm exaggerating of course, but you get the pic).
Met new people, which I always enjoy!
Spent the day at The Cloisters, Chelsea Market, and the office for the interns' workshop and social.

Sleeveless jacket and gloves, H&M. Striped dress, Kate Moss for Topshop. High socks, Chinese Laundry.

Bracelets, Get Happy & F21. Ring, Marc by Marc Jacobs. Snakeskin ace-up booties, Penny Loves Kenny.

“What is the feeling when you're driving away from people,
and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing?
-it's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye.
But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”
-Jack Kerouac

P.S. My internship is for this beauty/fashion blogsite

Spring Fling

I am so enchanted by small hints of spring's coming. The frozen lake now ripples with water, grass tinge with green, rain showers alternate with the bright shining sun, and temperatures rise and fall. Aahh, adieu hiver et bienvenue printemps.

A light jacket was all that was needed.

I cannot wait to burst out in blush, ruffles, florals, and checks.

I missed terribly someone's kiss today.

Maybe that's what life is...
a wink of the eye, a beat of the heart,
an impulsive kiss on the cheek, a spark of chemistry...
and the winking stars.

Much Love

I have been neglecting my blog for a while now, I have been so caught up in surfing fashion websites (so many awesome ones out there, it's dizzying!) and writing for my internship.. well that's it. Other than that, I have just been plain lazy. Yeah, I admit it.

And so it embarrasses me to even post these awards left me by the beautiful bloggers:

Dane - Trust Me, It's Paradise

Trisch - The Trisch Express

Cheyenne - i devour fashion

thank you, I truly feel undeserving, but you ladies are awesome and thus,
I feel awesome by association having been tagged with these badges. ☆
I now pass it on to all you lovely readers who bear with my slowpoke/erratic manner of posting.

I'm have really grown to love anything boyfriend- it makes me feel sexy being in men's clothes, especially if they're actually my man's pieces. This one I wasn't so sure about at first, because I wanted something more tailored and streamlined.. Although walking around the apartment in it made me see how slouchy could work (for me) too.
I'm making a mental note to take better photos of this jacket outdoors -or at least somewhere with brighter lighting.

Olivia Palermo and La Lohan rock. *love*

J'adore this image -particularly the boy's insouciantly preppy outfit. C'est fabuleux!
