First of all, I think it`s a good decision to change the look of my template. Second, I am very much proud to say that Joko was the one who reminded me yesterday that it`s #NSOCTuesdays today!! It just means he`s really looking forward into this. And third, well, let`s get to the series, shall we?

Among his choices, I personally am a fan of Psych, How I Met Your Mother and Workaholics. In his own words, "I like comedy series like HIMYM, Psych and Workaholics. New Girl is on my list too, not just in the top 5." If you noticed, I looooove watching Fox Crime. Psych could be on my top 5 too but Perception is one of the series that my mum and I look forward to every week. C.S.I New York gives me the thrill though because I really am a fan of crime fiction stories. He said, "I love TWD`s plot and story line plus every ep(isode) gets even more nerve racking." and in contrast to that — I swear people are gonna hate me for this — I am not a fan of The Walking Dead simply because I think zombies are getting overrated already. I mean, yeah, zombies are cool but what else can you make of it? I`ve watched a few episodes out of curiosity and man, it got me yawning. #veryunpopularopinion #opwegotabadassoverhere #hatemagnet

Skins.. I`ve actually done a feature about it here. I guess you just hafta check that baby out.......... America`s Next Top Model is like, one of the series you really have to watch if you`re a "fashion girl." idk man but it has really helped me build my confidence *spazz* and of course, Gossip Girl. Who would not know that? I mean, god damn it, Blair and Serena`s, even Lily`s closet are EVERY girl`s dream of having. I swear to all of the gods that yes, I watch it mainly because I have to see what they`re wearing. Plus, I`m totez a fan of Chair a.k.a the ship name of Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf a.k.a my alter ego`s parents. You really can`t be a certified fashion junkie if you haven`t seen Gossip Girl. Well, at least, in my own opinion.

Much love,

Probably my most favorite dress in the world! I seriously have worn this countless of times but in different ways because it`s very versatile and it can go with just ANYTHING! From day to night, street wear to formal wear — this dress is just amazing. For this ensemble, I paired it for the first time with my denim polo wrapped around my waist for that 90s vibe and yes, my friends think it`s already my "signature look". I can`t really wear the polo because that would cause me a heatstroke and to be frank with you, the Philippine weather is quite bipolar these past few months. This week it`ll be really freezing, and the next it would be back to it`s tropical state. 

Since summer is approaching, I`m already planning my outfit to the annual Pulp Summer Slam! I`m thinking of wearing neon colors since everyone would be in black. Trust me, I was one of them donning black. This year, I`ll be the — note the uncertainty — magenta in a sea of black! I got this new magenta top from Vivienne Tam, a gift to me by a family friend who just came back from the States. I think it would be a good concert look ;)

Much love,

My trusty and worn-out Nikes.

Apostrophe eyelet top/tailored cigarette pants/G leather belt/Nike sneakers/Museum of Modern Art New York cap/Tommy Hilfiger rucksack

You know those days when a light bulb just turns on out of nowhere for an outfit idea? I miss wearing my Nikes, to be honest and I could not help but incorporate my feminine eyelet top with a sporty look. Besides, 2014 is the year for "sporty luxury". I am also very inspired by brothers Jalan and Jibril Durimel`s genius clothing choices. I`m a girl yet I still look up to them as my fashion icons and I would love for them to be my muses when I venture into menswear someday.

This outfit just screams comfy to me. Did I mention I feel pretty too? I`ve been using a new Liz Claiborne eye shadow palette and their shades can go from day to night.

I really wish I could update this blog quite regularly as life`s making me busy these days.

Much love,

"Physical connections are common but mental connections are rare. I don't even remember my previous valentine`s. Probably because they weren't special. Heck, I never even bothered to celebrate it. It just reminded me no one really cares. 2013 came. I was on the verge of saying "Fuck love. I`m tired of trying."
"I`m happy I have friends. Yeah, sure. We all loved each other, but I`m just human — longing for love beyond friendships and my family. I`m just human that crush on people too.
I`d be a hypocrite if I said I don`t want them to love me back. Heartbreak after heartbreak, I know someone better`s out there."
"Some tried to pursue me, telling me flowery yet meaningless words. Maybe it boosted my ego, but I knew they just weren`t worth the risk. Then I met you. I must admit I`m a gullible one."
"Getting butterflies by the teases between us and that`s when I knew, I liked you. I have a crush on you. The negatron inside me spoke again."Give up. He only likes skinny girls who layer on makeup and go to parties, wear heels and take selfies every hour." Ugh. I had the feeling you wouldn`t like me. I`m not thin, I don`t comb my hair regularly. I`m a self-confessed tomboy. How the fuck am I supposed to compete with Joyce Pring?"
"So I just continued being friends. Little did I know, you had the same feelings for me. Nightly chats turned to unofficial dates. I must admit, I look forward going home everyday I knew I was gonna see you."
"The day you brought me lasagna was the day I knew you deserved my yes. The unconditional love I`m giving to whoever shows me that I`m his priority. You showed me I`m not just your option."

"Fast forward, 7 months later. Our bond just got stronger. We may have petty arguments but those don`t make me love you less. You made me realize that being in love, in a relationship may not be all lovey dovey, but you are worth fighting for."
"I`ve thanked you hundreds, if not thousands of times yet I can`t that you enough for being so patient with me. Thank you for not judging me no matter how worse I got myself into. No matter how stupid I am. Thank you for listening to my stories even if you find some outrageous. Thank you for believe in me when no on else does. Thank you for motivating me to do my best, to just keep on going. Thank you for expanding my social circle."
"Thank you for making me try new things just so I could say that at least once in my life, I got out of my comfort zone. Thank you for not underestimating me as a woman, yet you still treat me like a queen. Thank you for letting me know that I`m beautiful, inside and out, with or without makeup. Thank you for the support with whatever I`m into. Thank you for the honest opinions. Thank you for making me feel safe."
"Thank you for being so understanding especially when PMS strikes. Thank you for letting me drag you into clothing stores and tell me what looks good on me. There are just so much I would thank you for. As the cliche saying goes "words cannot express how much I thank you." I am really lucky to have a man like you to love me."
"People have different opinions and some might disagree, but you are a man with a big heart, a great mind, fair wisdom and a built which makes you stand out in a crowd. Us girls would die for a man like you. And in their sorry faces, I hit the jackpot."
"You`re amazing in every way. I`m really proud to be your girlfriend. Like really, you`re the school's heartthrob, I`m the geek. You fall in love with me and the whole school hates it cause who am I? My point is, not everyone comes upon someone like you and I`m probably the envy of many for keeping a guy like you. Just remember I am always here for you."
"Whatever you give me, I`ll repay you double. My love is for you and you alone. How I wish to be wrapped in your arms all the time and I swear with all my life that I`ll defend you as much as I can."
"I can be your best friend, sister, cheerleader, whatever you want! *wink As you are a boyfriend and a best friend to me."
"The day I lose you is the day I die. You`ll always have a special place in my heart. 7 months and only God knows how long this lasts and I won`t even complain if I spend a lifetime with you. I love you!! Happy first Valentines with you."
So above captions are what`s in my letter I gave to him. It came along with the Bicycle playing cards I gave him since he`s soooo into card tricks right now. Speaking of, here`s a video of his Ambitious card trick he pulled off to a random group of people:
Sorry if you can`t understand what he`s saying or for some vulgarity. I am a bad videographer and shooting at night is very hard.

Overall Valentine`s 2014 is very special to me. Laying in the grass, night strolls, having sweets, and my outfit shots in between every moment I was with him. It wasn`t really fancy at all. It was just a simple date because everyday is valentine`s day with him.

Much love,

Hi again! So I guess this is a new Tuesday thing, huh? #NSOCTuesdays lol

Fortunately, Joko told me he likes doing these things with me. He`s too excited for the Tuesdays to come that he has ideas already about what contents I should post next. For this week, we`re doing movies! As stated, you can see that we both are Lord of The Rings fans — huge ones. He has LOTR first though because, I personally admit that he`s a better LOTR geek than me... and well, I`m a better Mean Girls geek than him (duh!) I just can`t compete with his knowledge about the trilogy. As for the rest of his movies, I also love Pulp Fiction and The Matrix. Star Wars, so and so and I haven`t seen Undisputed yet. For my list of movies, I believe he has seen, well, just LOTR............ crickets. 

I basically just listed mine in the order of how much I`m willing to watch the movies over and over and over again and how much I`m knowledgeable about them. His movies are more masculine, mine are a mix of a really girly movie, a geeky one, a metal one, and two very inspiring movies.

We are willing to tell you more about these movies! 

Much love,

Polo Ralph Lauren corduroy button-down/ethnic necklace from Bangkok/leggings/studded leg garter made by myself/Nike SB customized by myself 

I refuse to dress up. Yes, this is my laidback look. You know those days you just feel too lazy to pile on clothes? This is what happens to me. Button-down polos are the equivalent of cotton shirts for me because for one, I don`t own any cotton shirts. And two, I recently realized I don`t own a pair of denim pants. I KNOW RIGHT?! I own anything denim from dresses, to vests, to polos, jackets, hats, even bags yet I don`t have the most basic one. I need to put that on my shopping list, asap.

Much love,

I'm a huge fan of A Pair of Pears and let`s just say I`m an envious one so I decided to put up one of those his & hers things as well. I`m very open about my relationship with my boyfriend, Joko and I guess you can say we`re sort of the odd couple. 

I can pretty much say music`s what brought us together and it`s relatively fair to share that first here. Yes, I listen to metal but I don`t stop there. He may be called "The Metalman" but I`m happy he listens to other genres now, too. At least, little by little he`s into indietronica now. I asked him for a list of songs he can listen to any time of day, whatever the occasion is and those are what he sent me. As for my list, I chose the songs that make me hyper on the days I need motivation to keep things moving. 

I hope our playlist may give you new songs and artists to listen to!

Much love,

Forever 21 studded top/corduroy pants, hand me down from grammy/Doc Martens

Went night shooting with my forever photographer a.k.a my uncle and I`m very much in love with the results! We had two locations for this since I was in the mood, indeed, to shoot. First bunch was the usual white wall and the rest were shot in my uncle`s room, per se. If you ask, my uncle is an artist that`s why he has all these paraphernalias in his room. I thought of giving this shoot a grunge-y vibe sorta thing. Garbage was definitely my playlist while I was in front of the camera (yes, I really was playing music.) 

I`m not going to elaborate anymore on this especially about the different things you see in my uncle`s room. Just so you know, his room is literally like an  art gallery already on its own.

Much love,
