On Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018, wasn’t a holiday but it might as well had been. Women and men all over the world paid homage to the movie Mean Girls, which is all know is a totally fetch movie.
Seriously, if you don’t know what I’m talking about you can’t sit with us.
All puns aside, I decided to play along to the tribute and deck myself out in a pink ensemble because we all know that “On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink.”
It was honestly quite fun to be able to dress up in theme and it was even more fun to see hundred and thousands of people on social media join in on the fun. While I doubt Regina George would have ever let me sit with them in this ensemble, I’m still glad I got to wear something that was pink yet was still a good reflection of who I am and my style.
Obviously I’m not a huge girly- girl but I like the think that I get to be more adventurous with my fashion options that way 😉
On the day that I represented the Philippines for the second time for International Podcast Day, I wanted to make sure that I represented the Philippines well and in something that I could actually be proud of.
Gone are the days of tacky, neon colored touristy shirts for me- my Zero Three Two t-shirt was a simple, yet catchy homage to our culture. I mean, come on, name one true blue Cebuano who wouldn’t be able to recognize the Veco logo?
While most of the people who were watching the segment from all around the world had no clue of what my shirt mean, ZERO THREE TWO is in fact our local area code while the type face is our local electricity providers logo.
It was an honor to represent the Philippines again! I hope you enjoyed my session and that it inspired and/ or taught you a little something when it comes to podcasting.
I do intend to return to creating podcasts for everyone but maybe I’ll do it sometime after the wedding. There’s just so much on my plate right now- I know you’ll all understand 🙂

I’ve been extremely blessed to have surrounded myself with a good bunch of friends throughout my blogging career. While I started blogging way back in 2004, it wasn’t until sometime in 2012 that I actually started taking blogging seriously and in a more “professional” direction. I quickly joined Cebu Fashion Bloggers after going more public and I’ve been a member since.
Many, many years later here we are still celebrating our friendship and what a lovely celebration it was having Shangrila make the occasion more momentous!
It was indeed a night filled with fashion, laughter, great ambiance and amazing food as the city’s top hotel & resort graced us with miles of freshly caught and lavishly prepared seafood. Not to mention, the set up that the staff had prepared for us truly whisked us away and left us enchanted- it was as if we were in a completely different city!
Thank you Cebu Fashion Bloggers for many wonderful years of events, friendship and adventures & thank you Shangrila for creating the perfect backdrop for a wonderful night that we will all truly remember!
