#GlobexWanderland2016

In 2013, Wanderland was founded and I got the chance to experience this indie festival, headlined by Temper Trap & Neon Trees, whose songs I first heard as soundtracks in TV shows that i watch. I really loved the experience and musical/artistic immersion in that event.I missed last year x Kid Cudi (ugh!!) but now, the annual music and arts festival, Wanderland is gearing up for another musical fete with this year’s anticipated line-up of international and local talents – see below. Together with the leader in digital lifestyle, Globe, on March 5, 2016, Saturday, at the Globe Circuit Events Grounds, festival aficionados are in for tons of special treats as they experience the excitement of the Globe Galaxy.

Wanderland #OOTD

It’s really nice to dress up in festivals and take OOTD’s so i’ve been doing some shopping! I also like that Globe and Wanderland has a special partnership with leading online fashion site, ZALORA (my first time to try this app/site), where  on-trend pieces are curated for the festival vibe.

Festival Playlist

To get into that festival spirit, Globe has also put together a catch-up Spotify playlist to make sure you can sing together with the artists as they take over the Wanderland stage. From Bon Iver’s laidback tunes to Death Cab for Cutie’s hits, the #GlobeWanderland2016 playlist on Spotify should be on repeat this whole week.

Been a pro user of Spotify (follow me =) and it makes it so much easier to study and rekindle love for music of artists prior to the concert and share it with others.

Hottest Pair

It’s been a while since I really wore heels, and my trip to the coldest Tagaytay I’ve experienced made me just feel it and walk around it, in a knitted sexy dress that I like wearing lately. Just feeling my oats, as Gia Gunn of Drag Race would say hehe.

I missed the SM Parisian launch weeks ago featuring The SM Store’s biggest shoes and bags brand – Parisian Shoes and Bags and Milanos Shoes which present the trendiest collections to date. From casual to trendy shoes and bags, the collection includes a reboot of styles, chic inspiration, and sports motifs. Like James and Nadine, Parisian Shoes and Bags and Milanos Shoes are looking towards the young and sophisticated.

Nadine-for-Parisian-8ee

I’m a Jadine fan, especially of Nadine Lustre, one sophisticated, classy and charming young lady. Well known for her acting chops, she also stands out from her many contemporaries by being well grounded and approachable – a fact that endears her to many of her followers. Nadine represents today’s generation: modern, versatile and beautiful far beyond her physical attributes. Nadine’s fashion choices are as wide and varied as the character she plays. From updated classics to trendy street, her top picks in this year’s Parisian Shoes Spring 2016 show how she loves to play it up when it comes to her personal style. For bags, Nadine opts for small handbags to hold her essentials, which she can carry from day to night. She also favors bags accented with fringes for an instant Boho-chic look when she wants things more laid back and casual.

The pair* we’re wearing in these photos is my favorite. Army green is one of my favorite colors and despite my big feet, it makes it look sexier in this style. And yes, it’s also OK in terms of comfort, especially versus the other closed designs/styles of shoes.

Playland

Parks remind me to take a breather, and to just play like a kid – whether through the rides or just through photos. I remember back when I was really little, I get the feelinf of being accomplished whenever I finish a ride or win an arcade game in that famous park in Laguna, or just the nearby mall.  No worries, just fun. Remind me to have that always.

Below is my OOTD and visual diary on a fleeting yet fun trip to Sky Ranch, Tagaytay. Enjoy!

Makeup at Noel Bazaar

I signed up for Noel Bazaar, one of the country’s leading Christmas Expo’s, as featured blogger and entrepreneur for their series of bazaar legs for the holidays. I was invited to do two makeup workshops (on a big stage!!) so below are some photos of those + my great finds at this huge expo.

The bazaars in Filinvest, SMX and WTC were the most-selling legs for me and Mikka’s Closet. I like how they organize and attract all kinds of customers with music, various stores and merchandise, celebrity appearances,  shows and demo’s. For sure, it’s one grand sale of almost everything and anything but entertaining as well.

Passion Fly

For over fifteen years, Karl Edward Bazaar has been the name synonymous to good buys, great deals, and the best urban shopping events in the country. I once visited a Karl Edward bazaar in The Fort a few years ago and a lot has definitely changed since then, aside from of course, a loyal following that really searches for the most creative and curated goods.

FLYER

The new Karl Edward’s bazaar is now called Passion Fly which is a series of fairs that looks beyond the buy and sell—it’s a creative immersion, where start-up brands can present their wares, aspiring creative enthusiasts can hone their craft, followers can meet their industry idols and peers, and fun activities can always be had. This tangible variety of activities gives credence to the event’s title as a festival, not just a fashion and style bazaar.

TICKET WITH POSTER 2

I have been present in 4 Passionfly fairs this year as featured blogger and partner for Mikka’s Closet, and Passion Fly knows that bazaars can be social events in themselves, where shoppers can enjoy the company of like-minded creative people and meeting individuals they follow online. Below are some of the activities we did a few months ago.

 

BLOGGER STYLING2

I really like this bazaar because the shoppers are focused on quality, diversity and creativity. I also get to shop some really unique ones! Below are the schedule for the remaining weeks of the year and I hope to see you there!

Dec 12-13 – Ronac Lifestyle Center; Dec 20 – Dusit Thani Hotel

BU10xSmart

One can only imagine the possibilities when the country’s top fashion bloggers come together under one roof, let alone with the country’s longest running annual charity bazaar and the #1 telecommunications company in the country. What is certain though is that the combo will make for the hottest holiday event of the season.

Founded in 2011, Bloggers United is a series of bloggers’ bazaar held in the metro to serve as a platform where bloggers can network and interact among themselves to nurture the online Filipino community through a celebration of beauty, fashion, and style.

We Are at 27

“We are the young ones drifting away our soul, somewhere on the high line. We are the cold hearts lighting up as we go, like it is the last time. We’re burning it down, we live to break then start over and over again. Into the dark, when life’s too late we start over and over again.”  – Dash Berlin. I’m still on a hangover from his songs!

Anyway, this is what I wore and sang a lot in my birthday pool party last October 25. I turned 27 already and I dunno, as I grow older, the more I fall in love with music – ugh EDM LOL – but the better ones, and this is what i feel. As I add a number to my age, I am reminded start over and over again. =) Thanks for all your birthday greetings!

#Row101PopUpHoliday

w1What do you get when a hip city spot suddenly sprouts the coolest homegrown fashion brands and celebrity-curated stalls? Last summer, I helped organize the first Row 101 event and due to the demand, Row101’s Holiday Fashion Pop-up brings on Christmas shopping early for those who love all things style and lifestyle. Taking cues from previous (and successful!) Row101 pop-up events, this Holiday installment is chockfull of fashion, beauty, food and lifestyle brands that will put shoppers in the festive mood, just in time for the season.

November 7 is a fine Saturday to do some serious shopping. Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street’s Top Shelf will be home to the #Row101PopUpHoliday, opening at 11 a.m. all the way to 10 p.m. It’s an event any stylephile would want to flock to: on the line up are a curated mix of cult fashion and beauty brands that have made their name around the stylish set and on social media. Among my favorite is Cool Girls Club which you can see above. These are the patches placed on the denim jacket (denim lover here!!) I wore when we were asked to pick our favorite brands in the bazaar.

Adding to the mix are celebrities and online personalities who will be selling their personal collections to fans and followers. Rounding up the crew are the city’s hottest food joints, setting up shop in the event to provide awesome grub and refreshments for guests to feast on while doing their rounds.
