Pumps + Remembering MJ

New found love.

Would have been 3 pairs, but 3rd is not fitting. Ah, undying frustration of an online shopper.

Online shopping here in China on almost anything is way 10  times cheaper than in malls / boutiques. Fact.

So that makes half of  the population including me lured with this craze.

Would you blame me if you get to snag items less than 50 RMB (342 PHP) a piece? I doubt.

Do you like online shopping?



When thinking vintage, a pleated skirt comes in.

Soft and graceful pleats, express femininity. Tie-waist makes it look fun, brings back retro days.

Yes, Autumn is here. Chilly gusty wind dominates almost everywhere.

But who would resist these lovely minimalistic  pieces?

No one.

Hooks and Bangles

Just received today a package full of fabulous accessories from another Taobao vendor which I bought from last week. Have been really trying to find new accessories for summer and thankfully I landed in their homepage. So without hesitations, I bagged most of the goodies. Items are beautiful,  exactly described, of good quality and mind you all were safely packed.

edgy hooks both @ 4RMB

Best part, it’s cheap! Can you imagine pair of hooks cost less than 4RMB and bracelets at around 5-10RMB, way way cheaper if you’d compare buying in the mall. Even if you include the shipping fee. I have seen similar designs at H&M which cost at 50 RMB and above. Thats a big difference!

The day when “I” became “We”..

Pardon me for being away,  as I was on stealth mode while going through all the preparations of our/my big day. Indeed it was a long, tiring , jittery and a very challenging process but I do remember a lot of memories that fateful day. The sun was shining high, people were busy as early as 6am, can barely eat lunch while enduring hour and a half of make-up styling, big smiles everywhere and most of all I was shaking to death from my legs up to my hands when the violinist played “Panalangin” as I walked down the aisle.  Felt as if it was never-ending, until Jeff held my hands tight and bid my parents with respect in the form of kisses and hugs.

It was a swift ceremony, after then I only remember that I never cried while saying my 3-paragraph vow of which I was so surprise. Anyway, I’m sharing some photo teasers from our big day along side is our engagement session too did by a wonderful and ever talented photographer Mr. Guj Tunpalan of Redsheep Photography.  Enjoy! 🙂
