Second sem is finally up! How are you doing so far? :) My first two weeks went fast and good. 
Before the second semester started i told myself that i want to have something changed in my look. We all know that the easiest way of changing a girl's look is through a new hair style, right? And so that was what i did. I planned to have my hair cut shorter again just like during my 4th year high school days. What do you think? :)
Top from Penshoppe, rugged shorts from Crissa Jeans, Bag from Tomato c/o of Mimi.
Expect more serious looks below. :P
Thought of including the gorgeous pictures which Mimi took last sembreak. Paradise.

One of the best leisure and bonding time my friends or cousins would engage too is a photo shoot like this. This mini photo shoot happened way back August this year but I wasn't able to blog this right after the shoot. Let's talk about backlog post! Darn. Anyway I think this is the perfect and right timing to post this photo shoot. Keep on reading and you'll know why! :)
If you will notice our chosen theme here was more of "One of the Boys" look. Do you think I achieved it? I actually thought that these pair of pants would be a good starting to point to wear since it looks like a boy's pants. I thought of pairing and matching it with my clothes which have the nearest possible color as the pants. Luckily I have this top that I actually over used since the day I bought it. Hahaha :) One of the piece that made this look manly is the neck tie which I borrowed from my brother. Of course the vest also made a big impact because it added some style to my over all look. Lastly I wore my school shoes to make it more of a formal look. What do you think of this whole mix and matching thing? :) Comments and suggestions are loved. 
And here's my partner in all the fashion crimes and photo shoots, Mimi! Doesn't she look gorgeous in her beanie? :)
Oh I really really love this shot! Such an innocent yet fierce look! Pretty pretty girlyy
I guess this is the perfect and right timing to post all these crazy pictures of ours in public because it's her birthday today!. :)) 
Happy Happy Birthday Ate Aimee, Mimi, Mimi swagg or whatever names I call you :P Thank you for being one of my sponsor in this blogging and fashion life I have. Hahaha. You know what I mean. :P 

Since the day you've entered your college life I've seen how dedicated you are to your chosen field. Besides I think that you and your course are match made in heaven because I can see that you really have a passion in  designing and crafting even the tiniest stuff you see. You have lots of ideas! I know that in the future, along with your future Archi sister, you'll make a big name in this world. Who knows mamaya ikaw na yung designer ng iPhone 10 tapos si Ica naman ang isa sa architect ng itatayong first 7-star hotel sa Pilipinas? We'll never know. :))) How about Mons? I know she'll be a great doctor someday too. Her ultimate pathologist dream is just one step away, I mean 2 exams and proper away. :)) I know that whatever course Ara will take in her college years, she will be as successful as you are! I heard that she wants to be an interior designer! 3 designers and a doctor, OMG! I just can imagine the Bustillo sisters in the near future. Good Luck! :)
Happy Birthday again Mimi. Sorry if I wasn't able to help you in your school stuffs (lalo na sa pag bubutingting). I really don't have any talent in that field. :( But I assure you, you can always count on me! :) I love you Mimi! <3

Breath taking view isn't it? It feels like I'm a tourist all over again when I am here. 
If you were to ask me, the best time to go here in Monte Maria is before the sunset so you could have a free time to capture everything you like before evening. In our case we were just in time for the sunset when we went there. We were able to see the what they call "magic and spark". Seriously ang sarap mag-emote. :)) It was so romantic.
Here's a mandatory tourist shot from the four of us. 
Here's to another selfie plus photobombed picture of Mimi and Mons. We actually made a video of this. You may visit my instagram account to view it! :)
Channeling my new hair style. #Shorthair :) Another list from my Sembreak bucketlist removed! Any opinions or feedbacks about the new hairstyle? Comments are loved. 

A touristy shot of my baby brother. Look at the backdrop! So so lovely! :)
Another touristy shots of the new comer tourist! Hahaha. Look-up pose. :)
It was so windy during that time that I really had a hard time posing for photos. Actually almost all the pictures taken were fail pictures because my hair kept on smashing my face. Hahaha :))
Here's to my OOTD! Plain and prints outfit. I'm not pertaining to the brand, I'm pertaining to the outfit combination. :)

Before we leave the beautiful Monte Maria, here are some pahabol poses! :))

What would you feel if you were to wake up one morning with this view?

My family together with my relatives spent 2 days and a night in my grandparents' hometown. We were almost complete that it seemed like we had a reunion party. One thing that I really like when I'm at my grandparents' place is that whenever we'll eat it feels like we were attending a feast. They serve feast-like yummy foods! Hahaha. We ate together as a family sharing not only great foods but also countless stories.

One thing that we love doing the most and of course the thing that almost all of us (cousins) missed doing are being beach bums! We took a walk by the shore one afternoon. Caught by the beauty of the clear water we certainly didn't had any second thoughts of swimming and of course never thought that in no time we will be caught swimming in our big t-shirts and pajamas! Hahaha. Yes, that's how insane we are!  
Hi there Mrs. Lennon! She wasn't able to swim with us because she's a late comer. Channeling her beach hair/ beach waves. Hahaha :))
I like these pictures. Look how Hanz and Aerolle bond with each other while we were happily swimming. Hahaha. 
Before we end our swimming session we asked the man approaching driving a motor boat if we could take a ride. Fortunately he said "Yes". Mimi and I had a really good time exploring the deep and clear sea of Pagkilatan. Special thanks to lolo for giving us a ride!

This is probably the main highlight of  my sembreak. The days I feel free in the social networking world :P (but still there's pocket wi-fi) and the days well spent with my family and with the persons equally close to my heart. December is fast approaching and I just can't wait for the true family reunion to happen when everyone is complete! 

xoxo,
Tito Ed's Birthday. My lolo-tito, Councilor Gerry Dela Roca, celebrated his birthday last October 16. This man is extra special to me because he is very kind to my family and to all the other relatives out there. Whenever I'm with his family I feel that I truly belong. My tito stand as my second father and at the same time her daughters who are my equally big twin sisters are very kind and caring to me. Infact we were always mistaken as biological sisters because most of the people say we look-like each other. :) 
Yakap ng Pastol viewing. This was the first time we saw my brother act live on stage! :) I'm so proud of him. You can read my blog about it and view the pictures I captured by clicking this. :)
Benevolence Reunion. I can't remember when was the exact date Benevolence went out together but I know it was during the 4th week of October. :) I missed them seriously. None of them has changed as I was expecting. Still loud, fun and sexy! They were still who they are when I first met each of them. Looking forward to our next meet-up and reunion. Credits to Rica for the pictures (except for the 3 last one which are mostly selfies XD)
Vintage Saturdate.  This post was originally titled Look Who's Back. I really had fun during Ate Ghen and I's first ever date this year. She accompanied me first to the hospital for my weekly check-up but then the doctor was absent for some reason. We decided to spend the whole day catching up with each other and hanging out to the fullest.    
Weekend FUN. I still haven't posted my blog about this but I am really excited for you to see the pictures I've compiled because this was probably the main highlight of my sembreak. It was so fun and many things happened during our 2 days stay in my grandparent's hometown. Time always flies fast when we're having fun that's why we need to cherish every moment we have with the persons we love the most.
Pamper Date with Mimi. That day was really exhausting for me and Mimi. During the afternoon we went to the hospital for my check-up. While waiting for my turn we decided to go to the nearest mall to have our lunch and merienda. We walked and roamed around the mall for about 3 hours already yet still it wasn't my turn to have my check-up. It was by then 4 pm that I had my check-up done. We went back straight to my hometown but decided to check-out before heading home the newly renovated branch of Nail Couture. The place was really pretty. They even revised a quotation of Audrey Hepburn and put it as a design on the wall. The nail artists were kind enough to accommodate us even though they were already closing. Thanks to them for giving us a nice service. :)
Catch-Up Date with my HS Buddies. And lastly my October wouldn't be complete without my catch-up date with my High School friends. It feels so good to be with them again. Lots of college stories including the boys! hahaha. 

I'm looking forward to my November! Hope my second sem and yours too will start right and fun! :) It's 50 days already before Christmas! Do you already have your Christmas wishlist? 

xoxo,
