I think this will be my first time to write here a blog about the things I love! :) I came up with this segment to take a break first from all those outfit shots and blog diaries that I usually write here. 
  
To start with one of the things that I really love doing is reading especially when it is all about those girly stuffs that I want. Good thing I discovered this application 3 months ago and I just need to share it with you. This app is All Women Stalk. Some of you may be familiar with this already but from those who aren't this is an app where you can find all the girly girl stuffs you have been looking for. Jam packed app! Some of my mostly viewed categories are weight loss :P, diet, DIY, celebs, fashion and travel. This will literally help you alot! You may download this app in the app store for free or you may visit their website by clicking this.   
Along with those floral crowns I'm sure all of you are familiar with these equally pretty floral sunnies. One of the things that I have been eyeing since the day I first saw it are these DIY flower sunnies. It's cute right? I've been seeing these kind of glasses in random boutiques already. Anyway, if you are interested to buy one I know an online shop who sells flower sunglasses like these two. :)  
Drop dead gorgeous! This is how I describe these kind of clutches. Look at those blings and laces. To tell you honestly, I fell for these kind of clutches already. You can see it here. Who wouldn't want to own one? It's a statement piece. Either you're wearing a plain top and jeans or evening dress using a statement clutch would definitely make your whole look perf and fab! 
These over rated and over used muscle tees will never go out of style. To tell you honestly my first muscle tee came from my first ever DIY. You can see it here. :)) I love muscle tees because it is very comfortable to wear and easy to style. Here are some of the pictures I grabbed from Forever21 page. I think it can help you out in styling your muscle tees! :) 
This shop is one of my latest addiction. It's Cruella and Co. online shop. You can view their instagram page here. What I love in their shop is that aside from selling the latest and trendy clothes nowadays, they offer free shipping fee! It's cool right? Plus size? Don't fret because they offer too clothes for plus size customers but you just need to pay an additional fee. I haven't tried this online shop but my cousins and I are planning. :) 
I've made a review about this shop before. You can read it here. This shop is honestly one of the shops I would always look back to because it has a sentimental value. :) It is the shop where I had my first online buying experience and I can say that it was all worth it. The owner of the shop has gone through so many challenges these past few weeks, to the point that she decided to close it, but then due to public demand and support she had been getting from her followers and customers including me she decided to continue the quest by starting all out again and renamed the shop More to Love PH. So again, if you're one plus size reader of mine, you'll probably need to follow and try this shop because I am telling you, you might be startled with the latest products she is selling right now! Affordable pieces plus free shipping is on so you might need to save now just like what I am doing! :)
Lastly this post wouldn't be complete without my latest discovery. Along with Vern and Verniece, Laureen, Kryz and Camille's blogs, one of my new addiction is Camilla Sentuti's blog named Glamgerous which means dangerously attractive. Fab right? What I love with her and her blog is that she's really a pro! A girl originally from Italy but tried to fit in the big city of New York. I love her photos, her backdrops, her words and accent! Fan girl mode again! She's now on my top list of the people I want to meet in the future.

I hope I was able to help you and share with you effectively. I love writing and I will probably write more stuffs like this in my next blog posts! :) Hope you didn't get bored at all!

Last October 19 we watched in my alma mater (currently my siblings' school) a play entitled Yakap ng Pastol. It was a play about how much the RGS Sisters contributed to the Philippine history. The play was directed by no other than Mr. Ariel Hagos and of course played and portrayed each by the PAO talents.
I cannot believe it that how on earth would my brother be a member of the Performing Arts Office!!! I mean it's PAO, it's the most popular organization where most of the talented people in our school came from. It was his first time to join the play and I guess he enjoyed and learned alot from his experiences. He was given minor roles yet he has some speaking lines! I even took a video of the longest line he said. I was praying during the time when was speaking that hopefully he will not miss any word or if there's any no one might notice it! I'm proud that he didn't messed up! He was able to state it clear and clean. Proud ate here! Hahaha. Future stage sister :P
Here's the ootn of me and my girls! By the way sorry for the low quality pictures. Took these pictures using phones only and some pictures were only grabbed. I hope you understand. :)
Perfect way to end the night! It was a blast and as expected it was a success again! :) Kudos to PAO talents and of course Sir Madz!

I have lots of backlogs! It is already the fourth week of October but I only published it now. I learned from Tracy Ayson that if you have too many backlogs compile it into a simple one like this to lessen the backlogs and works! It's effective since I started doing it last August. :) Anyway, October was totally a freakin and truly an unpredictable month for us. Many unexpected things happened and of course life lessons learned. Anyway i don't want to elaborate each further, I'll just be sharing with you some of the highlights of my First week of October. :)
Last October 1 the newly elected public servants of my hometown celebrated their 100 days in their position. Okay I don't know too why I'm blogging about this but anyway I'm present there and I must share it to you! Hahaha. For the sake of blogging!
As you can see there was like a feast during the 1st of October. There were decorations, loud music, soo many freebies that all people can enjoy for FREE. Some of which are mani and pedi with nail art (san ka pa!), foot spas and other related pampering stuffs, free foods and drinks, photobooths, cupcakes and lot more. If I don't have classes that day and was only given enough time I would try all those free stuffs! It was like a Candy Fair except that there were no candy cuties and celebrities. Hahaha. 
Before sem break ends my friends and I took alot of selfies. These were only some of the decent pictures selected. :))) Wala e, mamimiss daw nila ako. Lol as if we will be not seeing each other for a long time and we will no longer be classmates in the next term. >.< My clingy babies!
This was supposedly just an ordinary check-up day for me with the doctor until my two cousins joined me! Yey! We were all having our vacation na! After my quick injection we hanged-out at the mall. We don't usually do this together before but since we were the only teens who were left here in the Philippines during that time we thought of going out and have our one of a kind bonding experience. Lol. 
It was only last week that I had my pictures with the bloggers printed. Hahaha. Finally I can erase those already and I'll make sure to replace it again with newer ones! :) Bloggers United will be up again for their 6th installment this coming December! Who's coming?!!!

During my birthday last September 30 I spent almost my whole day in school. My morning started not so good because I was 15 minutes late in my first subject and aside from that I wasn't feeling well the whole day. Good thing I felt better during the evening before we had my birthday dinner.
Before anything else I would like to share with you my outfit last September 30 during my birthday dinner. Fashion blogger muna ang peg ko! :))) This is what I wore during my birthday dinner. One thing that I told myself before my birthday was that I want to wear something black and white to come up with a classy and elegant outfit. I came up wearing my skirt from Plus Shop Ph (now More to Love Ph) and paired it with my lace Cotton On top. I thought of using my SM Accessories clutch too which my mom gave me (I actually force her to give me one. Hahaha) as a reward. To complete the look I grabbed some accessories from Mimi which she bought at Laureen Uy's booth last BU5So here is the result of my mix and matching powers. Something I could have worn at Laureen Uy's Break My Style App lauch. Hahaha. Just kidding! I'm the queen of the day anyway! :)
My mom was also in theme black and white! Hahaha. I like it so much. She supports me alot when it comes to all this fashion thingyyss of mine. 
Moving on, my birthday ended with a family dinner with some of the relatives. I purposely chose Hap Chan because it's a Chinese restaurant and I've been craving for some chinese styled foods again and besides I've been getting good feedbacks lately from random good friends of mine. 
The place was very nice and the staffs were friendly. The interior, the smell and even the temperature in the place made us reminisce again and started a topic about our recent trip last summer where we used to eat in Chinese restaurants like this one. Okay let's use the hashtag #Throwback Hahaha. 
Look at these people! Most of them wore red! Chinese vibes all the way! Hahaha. I hope this year will be a lucky and prosperous one for me and for all of us. Let's cross our fingers! :)
And here I am getting fatter and fatter again. :'( Why?! Chubby face and chubby arms we meet again. </3 It's so hard to lose weight when the only thing that I can do now this sembreak is to stay at home, sleep and eat!
Picture with the oldies. :)
Foods we ordered. Actually these foods were all cooked in Chinese style. My best picks and now my favorites are the Hap Chan special pancit canton and Chinese styled sweet and sour fish fillet. The fish fillets were so yummy. It was so soft and totally melt on tongue. You should try this one when you eat in Hap Chan.
With the whole family. It's good to see that I still have on-the-go relatives who did shared, went and dine with me during my special day. You guys completed my day. 
With my two equally giant boys! :O People especially guys nowadays grow so fast. My cousin on the left is 17 also while my younger brother on the right side is 13 only. I guess our height totally runs in the blood. :)
Officially 17! I just want to thank everybody who greeted, gave gifts, surprised and celebrated with me my birthday last September 30. I am happy that the start of my 17th year was a prosperous and blessed one. I'm thankful to God because He gave me another year to celebrate and live this beautiful life with the persons I love.

I am happy to announce that my first sem as a college student had just ended. 1 sem down, 11 sems to go!!! :) One of the most memorable and my favorite among all the past events that happened last semester was Billy Crawford's Concert. Let me use this blog to tell you my concert experience. :) I'm excited! 
It was a requirement for us in PE class to buy a ticket in Billy's concert. Most of the people didn't watch the concert and only bought because it is required while the others used their tickets so it won't go to waste. Justine and I took the chance and bought tickets in which we will be able to see Billy in the nearest possible way. Hahaha. We're fans, okay! He's one of the artist that I look up to since then because he's multi-talented and way back then I was really a fan of Billy and Sarah G's loveteam. Hahaha. :))) The staffs were hard enough to put gates that separated those who bought exclusive tickets from the not. 
The concert started at almost 7 in the evening already. You can literally count the people in the VIP and exclusive seats. It was really few. Justine and I were both very lucky to be there and you'll know why later! :) 
The concert started by the performances of the prides of LPU like the LPU Dance Machine, Music Box and more... One of the celebrity guest in Billy's concert was Barbie Almalbis. She looked as young as ever. It cannot be seen in her appearance that she has already two kids. So petite! 
When Billy Crawford came out Justine and I took the chance of going to the nearest possible place where we can clearly see and of course touch Billy. Look again at the Barbie Almalbis picture. We were honestly sitting in that view but then we just experienced an adrenaline rush when we saw BILLY!  We ran and occupied the 4th front row seats because it was vacant. I told you, there were less people in the VIP section! 

This was a compilation of the videos I arranged and took during the concert. Sorry for the shakiness. Play it in 360p or HD for better viewing results! :) 

The whole Billy Crawford concert experience was truly a memorable one especially when he went down the stage, walked down the aisle and held my hands for about 7 seconds. Another one was when Justine asked for my handkerchief (good thing I have 2 in my bag) and suddenly wiped Billy's sweat on his face. Lol. Bango ng pawis, swear! Hahahaha.

Okay, I think it's too much fangirling already. We just can't help it. I'm looking forward for more artists this coming semester.

Sharing you again a very late post of mine. I still have 3 back logs after this. Hahaha. It is no other than school that caused me to have a busy life. Hello I'm in College already and besides it's my number one priority as of now. :) I'm loving everything that's happening in my life as a college student. I'm feeling determined and motivated. :)
It's been a long time since I documented and posted an ootd here. Tagal kong absent. I was more focused on the consecutive events that happened. It's funny that lately I always forgot to take an outfit shot even though it's only a click or two. Maybe because I'm always in a hurry and when I remember of doing some outfit shots it is already late because Mr. Sun has set already.
Maybe during this time I remembered to take my outfit shots because the place is a good background and eye catching. Who wouldn't want to take some shots in this almost perfect place. It's so gorgeous! Look at the mountains behind me. It looks like a painting! 
This view also! <3 It seems like we were in a different world when in fact it is only a place in my grand parent's. We can't help it but feel tourists again in our own place. Hahaha. This place is being commercialized and developed now and years later this will be one of the known tourist spot in the Philippines! I'm sure I'll be seeing you there years from now. :)

My second youngest cousin in the family had celebrated his 3rd birthday the day before I celebrated mine. For some reason we were reunited again for this special event. This kid is very special to me. He's exceptional and definitely different from the rest. He's intelligent! I find it cute whenever he'll approach me and call me "Ate Shaira". He just turned 3 yet he already speaks in fluent words not like the other typical three year old kids. 
I helped in doing some of the arrangements for his birthday. Hahaha. Proud! His birthday turned out to be great and memorable one. 
I guess Hanz really loved our gift. The smile on his face was priceless during that time. I love this kid so much! I can't wait for him to grow bigger.
