Mom in Makati Face

08/27/2012 § Leave a comment

Day in Makati without Mio means walking on however high heels I have on, whatever uncomfortable but pretty clothes I’m wearing and my hair ever so messy and be mega fuss free all day and night..HOWEVER, a day in Makati with Mio means that I’d wanna cut down on the running after Mio and all the fuss that comes with mommy duties. So here’s what iwore on a hot day..sheer top and shorts.


I’ve been trying out the high top bun to keep my hair away from my face on mommy duties.


So clean and sleek huh? It’s actually a little messy..but a bun never goes out of date with me ever since the ballerina days 🙂 See how I’ve almost no make up on?? Haha! Haggard mucho?


Here’s the little runner! 🙂

Ps. Now off to get ready for another day in Manila-Makati with Mio..can't believe I've classes again tomorrow!! :/


The Matchy Matchy Face

Pink with Gold sparkles.

Yep. Don’t you love how well pink and gold looks on everything? Clothes, jewelry, furniture, walls?? 🙂 shows off how hopeless romantic/girly girl I can go..haha! My Lola Tita came home to the Philippines second time this year a couple of weeks ago. The first time in January, she came home with loads of make up goodies from Lancome for me and my sis. The Color Design sets came with eyeshadow, brushes, mascarra, lippies and make up remover. The first time, I got the Vintage Rose lipstick while my sister took the It Girl one. On this visit, Lola Tita brought another Lancome Color Design Lipstick in It Girl and we all know it’s definitely going to my make up bag 🙂


To cut the long story short, my gosh, I just discovered that (on my skin) these two look so much alike! Perfect matches of the prettiest pink with golden specks that will work anywhere and anytime 🙂 I’m only waiting for the most OSM eyeshadow palette and this goes into an InstaGlam bag for all the biglaan going out look 😉 I’m super happy Lola Tita gifted this lippie to me! 🙂


Except from the fact that Bella Bamba is powder so there is less pigment and bigger sparkles while It Girl is a cream lipstick that looks a almost opaque pink with a golden sheen, they really look so much alike on my skin don’t you think? This day I wore the blush over Snoe Glam Jam in Blush which is a sheer bright pink cream/gel tint so the color is much more developed and would stay much longer; considering this is a no retouching day cause I was with Mio for a Manila-Moa-Marikina day. The lip color I wore over Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Glow in Pink Blast cause it’s my fave lip care as of this week! 😀


This was the day we picked my sister up in Manila, ate pizza in SM Mall Of Asia and went to my Titos house in Marikina for dinner cause it was his birthday. In other words, haggard day which required fuss free make up and clothes so I decided to wear this dress which has a circle skirt that perfectly hides my post baby tummy under the color blocking skirt..haha! I’ve been eating too much these days but I cannot help it, I can only disguise all these imperfections by cheating your eyes! 🙂 (remember my eye make up tricks to avoid looking old in my eyeglasses post? Haha!)


Also, because I know I’ll be running around to catch Mio and the dress being very body hugging on top, I opted to slightlycover up with a sheer button up (in a color matching Mios shorts this day..haha! 🙂 see? I’m a matchy matchy addict..I always try to make Mio’s outfit match mine..hehe! :)) Can you just imagine now how glad I was to discover this perfectly matchy matchy Lippie and Blush?? 😀

About my no retouch make up goal, I only had to retouch my lips after eating and my blush stayed until after midnight! 🙂 Amidst all the sweat, running, and eating I’m so glad how well this look wasn’t too much for day to night and how fuss free the whole look was without compromising being almost pretty in pink 😉

What can you say about this look? 😉

Black vs. White? Tommy vs. Liz?


During the first weeks of school, I changed my bag everyday trying to find The One for me..haha! Having to carry so much stuff everyday means I want a bag that is ergonomically friendly for the petite me in heels and mega tight white uniform..oh you can just imagine how uncomfortable it can be 😦 also, I do have a thing for pattern so although I like switching things up everyday, I first set the ones that I want for good and with my bag, I’ve come down to two 😉

These are moms old bags and I just want to share how these two bags are so clever 🙂


Liz Claiborne Carry all Faux Alligator in White and Gold

I love this bag cause all my stuff fit inside and it doesn’t loose it’s shape. It’s also water and stain proof because of the sturdy leather material. Its a perfect combination of white, beige
Ines and gold details that spell so much class and goes so well with my white uniform 🙂


It has three compartments inside, the zippered middle on being most spacious. Inside is a zippered pocket and three phone sized pockets which are great for things to be at easiest reach like car keys, hanky and I.D. card. It’s also great that I can slip my bag organizer through the middle compartment and even add my umbrella and jacket. It’s been raining here so I used this all week and everything was kept dry and organized inside. It has two pockets at the back size which are good for my pencil case and some change.The only downside is that it’s just so heavy 😦 considering the thick leather material,the bag itself is already heavy so toting this around all day feels tiring in the afternoon. Also, I end up with pink shoulders at the end of the day.


Tommy Hilfiger Ausable large tote

I love this bag cause it’s so comfortable to bring. The strap is soft and even if it’s black, it does not leave dark marks on my white blouse. It’s also great for school cause it’s easy to clean over the weekend and ready to be used again come Monday. The monogram makes it interesting even when I wear an all white ensemble with it. But really it’s just simple and functional 🙂


It also has three compartments but the middle zippered one is the narrowest. It’s only good for my iPad so I slip my bag organizer in the compartment to the back. The side compartment also has a zippered pocket and two phone sized pockets which are just easy to reach to. The front pockets are much bigger than the ones from Liz. I can even slip in my notebooks there. Because I can’t close the big compartments inside, I would just stuff my jacket over my stuff and people always worry why my bag is open (and sometimes look overflowing)! No matter, cause the design of this bag is so great that it makes carrying a lot of things feel lighter for me. Even if the upper part of this bag is made up of leather, it’s still fuss free for me caus eevrything is much softer.

To sum up why I love both these bags, here are what I like to look at

  • long straps
  • huge compartments
  • water and stain proofs
  • comfortably straps
  • classy and conservative designs and colors
  • However, as for right now, if I could pick out just any bag for me to use for the rest of the school year, I’d prolly get me a large Le Pliage Cuir in Gun Metal cause it’s so light, simple, functional and I bet, timeless 😉


    Isnt it funny how I over think even with the smallest things like bags? Well, it matters to me so those are what I have to say :))

    Because these are the only days in the next five years that I will be dressing “freely” I’ve decided to actually post what I’ll be wearing to school before my uniforms arrive.

    Hope this gives girls ideas of what to wear when there is “school dress code”


    Girly balloon top + grey and black grunge leggings + black ballet flats 😉
