Uniqlo has FINALLY opened it’s doors to the Cebuano’s with their first branch in SM Northwing to be followed later on this year by their second branch at the SM City Seaside. With their signature basics made out of top of the line garments, perfect cuts and affordable prices; Uniqlo is sure to become one of Cebu’s favorite shopping places.
Check out my vlog from their VIP Pre- Shopping and Sake Ceremony that was held last October 22nd and how the store looks like if you haven’t had the time to drop by already.
Welcome to Cebu, Unqilo and Congratulations Big Speed PR for another successful event!
Let’s Stylize always has my back especially when it comes to my more lady-like dressing. I can always depend on them when it comes to picking out pieces perfect for special occasions, business meetings and other more chic occasions in my life.
I wore this dainty number during a very special meeting over the weekend and it made me realize how much dressing the part can help with building up confidence. Try to keep this in mind the next time you’re dressing up for an interview, a date or even a night out!
I’m officially sharing personal vlogs on Youtubeto show you guys what a typical day in my life is like. I wanted to be able to share my life with everyone in a way that’s raw and unfiltered- I really hope you like this new series!
Check out my first video and find out how I do my own photo shoots, get a tour of my EXTREMELY SMALL shooting space and find out more about me- weird and everything.
Halloween is just around the corner and just in case you’re reading this 2 hours before deciding to actually go out on Halloween this year and there’s not enough time to decide what to wear then you’re welcome!
I absolutely LOVE Halloween especially because it’s a couple of days before my birthday so I’ve been throwing costume parties ever since I can remember! This year I decided to tick my costume ideas post a little earlier so I can go ahead and concentrate on other things that are soon to grace this wonderful website. #progress
So here are my “lazy” costume ideas for this year’s Halloween festivities…
Continue to celebrate this year’s NBA champions by showing off your love for this awesome team. Or, if you’re a fan of any other basketball team then throw on a jersey and show off your team spirit! Generally, all you need is the necessary merchandise and a glow ball to complete your look. It’s simple, easy AND you have an excuse to wear sneakers the entire night!
I got this costume from my little sister who decided to go as Kanye West during one of her costume parties. It’s a good reason to wear an all black ensemble and it’s pretty funny to carry a crying Kim Kardashian with you everywhere you go. Plus points if you can find someone willing to be your very own Kim K. for the night. Costume idea here.
Lastly, you can also opt to go as Lilo from Lilo and Stitch. Honestly, I could have done better on the sewing job but this is “a lazy girl’s guide to Halloween dressing” so props to me for even trying!
I hope you enjoy dressing up for Halloween this year and please tag me on Instagram (@issaplease) if you decide to go as any of these 3 choices.
I’m a sucker when it comes to go a good white tee and an even bigger one when it involves playful graphics on them.
Growing up, all I ever wore were graphic and statement shirts so being able to incorporate them in my wardrobe now not only hits close to home, it gives me a much needed break from my currently filled with chiffon and spandex wardrobe.
I first heard Elated Industries earlier this year where I even blogged about them here. Back then, they did not offer apparel for ladies but I am so happy that I finally get to enjoy their products through their Tee Tuesday’s offerings where they release a new graphic shirt every Tuesday.
Elated is really about creating a lifestyle and making your own stories. I love the amount of thought and work that they put into every single one of their products and how well they translate in their designs.
So if you’re looking for a local brand to fall in love with, I suggest you check out Elated’s products. There is always something for every one there.
I’m not as much as a traveler as I would have wanted although I do intend to fix this problem very soon. Hong Kong, being one of the first places I’ve been to other than the States and some parts of the Philippines, was a bit hard to dress for. The reason why I am only posting 1 ootd out of the 4 days that I was there is because I spent those days walking around in shorts, a shirt and sneakers or slippers.
I really underestimated people when they said that we’d be doing a lot of walking so if you haven’t been to Hong Kong yet and you’re planning to, make sure to pack your most durable and comfortable shoes and make sure to wear socks!
Not a lot of advice (yet) when it comes to what to wear or what to pack because we all know that I am not a pro. However, if I were to impart you with any bit of knowledge, I do make sure to bring the following every time I travel, even if it’s just to Manila:
1. Nipple patches (because no countries wants to see your bra straps)
2. A jacket/ scarf
4. A hat that does not take up so much space
5. Hollywood tape

It’s hard not to fall in love with cupcakes especially when they come in pretty designs and taste better than they look. My sugar intake may be limited but my sweet tooth gave in to temptation one too many times with this box of red velvet cupcakes from Douce Amor Pastries.
I truly believe that passion makes everything in life so much better which is how these amazing red velvet cupcakes came to be. The proprietors, Alani and her boyfriend, Erlo aren’t bakers by profession but because of their passion, they were able to create something amazing. Also, I love how Douce Amor also means two love. It’s so inspiring! <3
Douce Amor Pastries offers frosted cupcakes at P500.00/ dozen and fondant cupcakes (which tastes amazing, btw) at P700.00/ dozen. And since we all know how everyone loves a good cupcake design, Douce Amor Pastries strives at making the perfect ones for your special occasion whether if it’s a cartoon, something elegant for a wedding or naughty cupcakes for a good pre- wedding gag.
They also offer cakes that start at P 1,500.00 depending on the size and design and dessert buffets and set ups for any special events.
Blogging has been around for at least over a decade and like the sweater suggests, I do believe that there are some thing that bloggers are actually better at doing such as:
1. Disseminating information and sharing ideas to the world.
– Let’s be honest, whether it’s the latest gossip; world issues or just their innermost thoughts and ideas, bloggers are pretty good at getting the word around.
2. Making the real world look so boring.
– There’s a lot that goes on behind the cameras when it comes to blogging (not matter what genre it is)- like in this shoot, behind this camera is a pig sty but a bloggers gotta do what a bloggers gotta do. Plus, angles. Don’t worry, I cleaned up afterwards.
3. Taking awesome photos or at least, conceptualizing them.
-Two words: Flat lay
4. Excellent time management skills
– A job, a sideline business to support our camera/ clothes/ dining needs, events and still managing to consistently blog while managing to keep a personal life with friends and family? Piece of cake!
5. Putting ourselves out there and being thick skinned
– We get ridiculed and teased a lot but it’s all good. We’re proud of our craft and we don’t need any one else’s approval.
6. Self learning internet skills
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only blogger who’s self taught myself how to use and actually understand certain html and css codes. It’s cheaper than having to pay someone to do it and there is absolutely nothing can come in the way of our ideal layout dreams!
Is it bad that I’m only getting starting to enjoy exploring with “print on print” now that it’s completely obsolete? Perhaps. But then again, I’ve never been the one to enjoy trends that much anyways.
When it comes to trends, I’m admittedly always a step behind. I didn’t know keeping a “clean” Instagram was cool, I thought lace ups were still called gladiators, I also thought culottes were just long pants and the list goes on. Thank god minimalist dressing is in because now my lack of effort can finally be justified.
But then again, who wants to be like everyone else? I’ll be the pop of color when everyone’s in white washed neutrals!
Trend or no trend aside, just be you. Fashion is an expression of what you are and it fills in the gaps with words that need not be spoken. And remember, history repeats itself when it comes to fashion… so hopefully, this look will become relevant in a couple more years!
