It’s god knows what time and I’m waking you up in this sudden need of quenching.

“Give me water! Give me water! UHAW KAAYO KO!”And then I fall right back to sleep.

But there you are, thinking it’s the most important thing in world and there I am, lying almost lifeless, back in my slumber and there you are again, trying to get me to drink water.

It’s early in the morning and we’re laughing about it in the loo. We’re silly creatures, we don’t remember things but we’ll always remember laughing at the dumb stuff.

We’re at a club rn and I wanna crawl into bed with you again.

I used to fear the evenings and falling asleep because i might never wake up but now the nights are my favorite simply because they are always spent next to you.

Never wake me up for water, ok? Only I’m allowed to do that. 😂

It’s Slow and Beautiful Chaos

3 workshops (and hopefully counting…) in a span of a month, my presentations have gone awol on me so I am left to start from scratch, I haven’t answered my emails in 3 days and it’s making me very anxious as I hate having unread and unanswered mail, events for the next 3 days, meetings with clients, a delivery (!!) a flight to cdo for the labor day weekend and a wedding, NO ITINERARY YET (THIS IS MAKING ME ANXIOUS. I NEED TO KNOW!!), looking forward to meeting a few content creators while I’m there and a suitcase that I still need to pack and clothes I still have to buy.

Despite all this chaos, I am taking the time to write to you, to come back to you- my favorite place on earth. Honestly, if it weren’t for you, I don’t think I would be here right now. I don’t think my life would be this beautifully, amazingly chaotic if not for you.

I am grateful more and more each day.

Thank you.

Shop Formal Dresses Online with Airmode.com

Shopping on the internet can be so much fun especially when shopping for casual clothes & accessories however, I’ve never really shopped for formal dresses online. Airmode is one of my latest discoveries when it comes to online fashion, specifically formal dresses specifically for proms, evening events and even weddings!

If you’re looking for black evening dresses try this link: http://www.airmode.fr/black-evening-dresses-c126672/, I would definitely consider checking our Airmode’s choices as they’ve got a mean collection to go through and enjoy. As for me, as far as little black dresses go, I prefer the polar opposite and am opting for a lighter, brighter and a more romantic hue such as this bohemian styled wedding dress:

Happy Shopping,

OPPO F1s: #FeedGoals

[Photo taken from Google]

When I’m not posting about my outfits or my whereabouts, I usually prefer to post photos of restaurants or food. Everybody on Instagram is a foodie and with all the events that I attend on a weekly basis, it pays to have a good companion with me to document every single one of my gastronomical adventures.

I usually carry around a camera with me but with so many social media applications to update while at an event: Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter- not to mention Instagram & Facebook’s recent story updates… sometimes carrying around a mobile device AND a camera is just too much work! And although I love the quality of photos that a camera can capture, I sometimes wonder if a mobile device can achieve the same quality of photos that I require for my feed.

Whether I’m taking photos of food, fashion, landscapes or even selfies, it’s important to me that my phones camera can take crisp photos that need little to no editing.

Luckily, as I was doing my research, I discovered that the OPPO F1s is the perfect phone for my blogging and on the go needs! It’s front camera is perfect for selfies because of its 1/3.1-inch sensor and F/2.0 aperture so I can take self portraits even in low lighted environments which would be perfect for any intimate photo ops with chefs, restaurant owners or celebrities I encounter at events.

There is also the filters and beautify features that seem to be great but what really intrigues me is the selfie panorama feature on the phone that allows the user to take a wide angled selfie shot by simply rotating the device side to side. It would be perfect for group shots especially with my Cebu Fashion Blogger friends who I usually hang out with at events.

Selfie cameras are great and I’m dying to try it out but more importanly, I am so intrigued about the Oppo F1s rear camera that comes with a 1/3.06 inch sensor which works great for night shots. Dinners are mostly more celebrated where I’m from so it pays to have a device that works brilliantly in those settings.

Overall, I would say that being able to own an Oppo F1s would be a definite upgrade from my current device. It’s speed, aesthetic and and overall performance is top notch and if I want to keep my blogging A- game, then my devices should also be on the top of its game.

What do you think of the Oppo F1s?
