Year-End Partey!

While sorting out photos on my hard drive, I see these unforgettable pictures I had before 2014 ends.
I just forgot to post this here on my blog since I have no time writing and sorting photos.

This is the 5th time we have our year-end gathering or reunion with high school batchmates. And this is the first time I'm going to attend. Imagine? I'm absent every year-end celebration and this is the only year I found a free time on my schedule.

It's good to see them again. Some of them grew up differently, more mature, and professional. Most of them finished their degree already and are now working. And some of us, yes I'm one of them, still enjoying school life. Lol. Some of us took a long term course like Engineering, Medicine, and Law.

We always plan a house party cos we can do whatever we like and how long it would take us to chat and enjoy. I bet next year I will host the house party. And hope lots of us will come since this year we  end up atleast 25 attendees. 


This is my uncle from my father's side. He's also one of my batchmate. I'm surprised that he came and he's here in the Philippines now.

I do enjoy the reunion. And heard a lot of new stories and gossips from my old friends. Highschool friends are the best! Have you been updated with your old batchmates?

Tribal Queen

What I Wear:
bikini (corset type): thrifted
black maxi: thrifted
sunnies: SM Accessories

It's so nice to take a break and relax for a day from from the city. By just breathing a nice air from the depths of the forest and seek a fun activity. As you see my previous post, we are back again here in El Kabayo falls. The weather is fiery, but the forest area is chilly with fresh air. I miss my hair color and length during that time since I already cut it short now. I feel like a fairy or mystical creature of the forest that time. I do enjoy posing on that rock and love the lighting of the surrounding. (It makes me look more pale. Lol)

 I decided to wear light clothes so I can easily change it. When going to the beach or falls, I prefer and love to wear maxi skirts. It feels cool and perfect for warm seasons. I also got lucky and grab this two items from thrift stores. I always score some items which is unique and real finds. I'm always into tribal prints. I love the top. It's actually a bikini-like-corset plus the sheer type maxi skirt which enables me to move comfortably around. Added my overused personalize necklace from Mia Casa to create some drama.

Oh how I miss adventures!

Disconnect to Reconnect

Fedora: SM Accessories
Round Sunnies: Online Shop
Customized Necklace: Casa Mia
Top and Green Shorts: trifted online

It's another day to reconnect with nature and disconnect with technology. One way to spend a quality time is through an adventure.  So for today's adventure I'm back to El Kabayo Falls. Yep I'm going to swim again and try jumping off the falls. Last time I wore denims and it wasn't comfy enough to move around. Since going out in nature means a lot of activities like walking, running and climbing. So I decided to put light clothes.

Green is nature's tone and it matches my clothes. From shorts-top-vest, it's all thrifted. 
*Lucky those who have patience to search, they are blessed*
The green highwaisted shorts is very soft and light. I like its weird yet unique zigzag design. Pair it with a loose crop top with tribal-like prints. Add a light green denim-like vest to cover up my top. Since we'll be under the sun, I put a hat and a sunnies to prevent my skin from sun damage.

Let's start swimming!
