I'm Walking on Sunshine

So after a week of our recently concluded post wedding Boracay trip, I'm going to bombard you with tons of beach-related outfit posts and photodiaries the coming days. Now that wedding and honeymoon stage is over, time to go back to work (and blogging). So let me share with you my one of the outfits I wore as I stroll around the beautiful shores of Boracay with my husband and our family.

Gosh did I say husband?

Bikini top: Sassa  || Bikini Bottom: Sunkissed (SM GTW)
Dress: Tomato || Sandals: Tiangge
Shades and Hat: From Boracay (D'Mall)

You guys know how much I worked hard to achieve a well toned body (for the wedding) and I'm really thankful it showed. However cause I lacked discipline on diet, I was not able to achieve a well-toned abs (just like my fitspiration, Lissa Kahayon). However, now that wedding is over, I will still try my best to work out and maintain (or improve) my figure. I sort of lost some of my cuts after stress eating a week before the wedding and holid…

I know I surprised you a couple of days back with the set of photos Don Micheal de Leon of Happy Fingerstook. The peg my not my usual, girly look but the laidback, street style that I don't wear most of the time. As always, Don wanted to show off my abs and biceps hence the fierce look. Hope you guys like his amazing photography. Anyways, Paolo also took some behind the scene photos (while Don and I are filming) and here are his awesome shots:

I did some color editing on photoshop (though not as great as Don's work) but I hope his shots are also good. Oh, by the way have you seen our same-day-edit? If you still haven't, just click play on the link below:

Dove's #IAmBeautifulMovement

Only 7% of Filipinas Describe Themselves As Beautiful—Dove Wants To Change That

In this era of bespoke trends, personal blogs, and selfies, it would be quite logical to assume that Filipinas finally have a healthy sense of self—that they now acknowledge their own beauty and think of themselves as being truly beautiful. However, this recently uncovered reality suggests otherwise:

“Only seven percent of Filipina women regard themselves as actually being beautiful.”
This was a finding borne from the recent Dove-commissioned study that gathered women from Southeast Asia, concentrating on the Philippines, to uncover “The Real Truth About Beauty.” The regional study hoped to define the beauty sensibilities of women from within the country and across the region. The findings show a common thread: an enlivened perspective and an attuned sense of self-awareness. The results proved refreshingly positive with healthy valuations when it came to beauty, but this particular figure stumped us. How can o…

Guwapong Chinitong May Kotse: Paolo Rovie's Same Day Edit :)

"Hindi pa kita kilala, pinapangarap na kita. Dati lagi ako nagdadaydream ng guwapong chinitong may kotse, tapos nakita kita.Kaya ginawa ko ang lahat para mapasakin ka" - Rovie to Paolo, 11-16-2013
Paolo and I have been together for 9 years but we cannot explain the happiness both of us felt on our wedding day. It is the fulfillment of our dream, the answer to our prayer -- to spend the rest of our lives with each other. For him, I am his soul mate, to me, he is my greatest blessing.
Laugh, cry and fall in love. This video summarizes everything that happened during our wedding day -- which was also Paolo's 29th birthday. To those who were not able to make it on our big day, and to those we wish were there to witness our big day, hope you guys would like this!

Before the Break

Okay so this will probably be my last outfit post as I take a wedding break from blogging. I honestly don't have lots of stories to share as Paolo and I have to make last minute preparation and head on over to tagaytay tomorrow for our church wedding at Caleruega.
If I still have the energy, I would share to you guys tomorrow each of my wedding suppliers. For now, I gotta go!

All Smiles

Honestly, posting a set of smiling, happy photos is a rare thing for me. Sometimes I find it refreshing to see myself posing that big smile for my ootd shots (I get tired with my usual pa-fierce look). Anyways, Paolo and I took this set of photos at Don's place (told you before his place is awesome) where I mix and match some of old clothes. I love recycling clothes and re-styling them in many ways possible before I sell / give them away. I chose to combine pink and yellow for that refreshing, summer look. 
As always, I have a busy day / week ahead so have to go now and fix some of our wedding stuff.
I'll be back on track really soon!
