    Another chic black and white outfit using my new favorite leather bag from Jellybean. Just one of the items I bought when I went on a shopping spree with them. Which you can read all about here.

    About the title, have you heard about Jessica Jung’s upcoming brand Blanc? I bet it’s something black and white enthusiast and kpop fans like me would anticipate about. I can’t wait to see all the chic pieces she will be releasing. I know she won’t go wrong ‘cause.. you know she’s Jessica, and she’s pretty much on top of her fashion game. She makes black and white so modern and sexy. Just google her airport outfits, haha!

    Me, being a big fan of monochrome looks, I think there’s just something really cool about wearing black and white. You wear something so simple that it just makes who you are stand out.

  2. SM Beauty Doll Glam

    Last month, I did a campaign for the SM Store beauty section in collaboration with Mega Magazine for the concept “Doll Glam”.

    Last July 25-27 was the celebration of that campaign, this time in cooperation with events100 (still under One Mega Group inc- the publisher of Meg and Mega).

    (I was one of the main visuals for the event. There were screens everywhere showing AVP of how you can recreate the four main “DOLL GLAM” looks. The cute, pretty, hippie and sexy looks.)

    The weekend was a makeover heaven. Ladies got to enjoy FREE MAKEOVER, from makeup, hair down to the nails!

    The cutex section where you can do nail art for free!

    My niece, Rica, enjoying her free nail art. Some of the guests are taking her pictures too! What a cutie!

    Other participating brands and their KAWAII booths. (Dolly Wink, Heroine Make, Pixy and Palty.)

    The main event however was held at SM North The block last July 26, wherein real life dolls Alodia Gosiengfiao and Tricia Gosingtian was invited to do a Doll Glam challenge.

    (Backstage selfie with these major babes.)

    I was invited by events100 to be one of the dollies to be dolled up by either Tricia or Alodia. Being a big fan of Tricia, I specifically asked if I can be paired with her and thankfully they agreed haha! Backstage, we are both giddy that we are paired with each other.

    During the Doll Glam challenge, Tricia and Alodia were asked to create a DOLL GLAM look to each of the models using participating brands all available at the SM Store Beauty Section. Both of their favorites are lashes from Dolly Wink!

    Tricia is using Max Factor Wild Mega Volume for the lashes.

    Tricia is using Nyx Adorable eyeshadow palette. I think Tricia did her trademark winged eye makeup on me. Similar to her blog post here.

    Since Tricia is a huge fashion inspiration, It’s no surprise that we’re both wearing off-shoulder tops,puffy skirt and black heels! Like Tricia said, we are definitely made for each other.

    Tricia is the best and I’m just so happy that somehow we have this idol-fan relationship. She even calls me bb Ruth! Haha I would love her forevs.

    What a transformation, huh? What do you think about the final look? I think it’s super KAWAII. Can’t wait to recreate this look for everyday makeup!

    After the show. I went gaga and posed together with my blown up self on the LCD screen, haha!

    I would definitely like to thank SM Beauty, Watsons and One Mega Group’s Mega Magazine and Events 100 for making me a huge part of this prestigious trend and event.

    Hoping I get to be part of the next campaigns too! *crosses fingers*

    And thank you to my family and friends who went with me. I always feel blessed when I’m with them. ^_^

    If you want a recap and would like to try the DOLL GLAM looks for yourself, here are some tutorial photos from Watsons Philippines.

    Stay tuned for my next post about the DOLL GLAM series!

  3. Jellybean Shopping Spree + Look!

    Last July 26, Meg Magazine held is 16th anniversary party at Club Haze, Fort Strip, Taguig.

    On that night, I was chosen to be one of the MEG Ladies of the night and I won 5,000php worth of shopping spree from Jellybean!

    (Here I am on stage, with the other Meg Ladies of The Night winners; Photo from Club Haze; Wearing Choies jacket and skirt)

    Jellybean is one of the country’s top female brands, offering trendy and girly pieces from clothing down to accessories. It’s definitely a must visit one-stop-shop if your a shopaholic young adult like me. Most of their designs go well together so it’ll be very easy for you to find a whole look that’s appropriate for any occasion!

    Their clothes are arranged according to color, denim, pink, pastels, navy, etc. (Sorry for the lack of photo, I was too excited to shop!)

    Here are their choices of sunnies and cute pastel heels and flats.

    Only 500php each for these pair of heels? Yes please!

    Jellybean usually have SALES all year round so I recommend you keep up to date with their latest promos on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM.

    Their displays are just too cute!

    Just some of the choices I picked out.

    I am just obsessed with white midi skirts.

    And here’s my niece Rica looking so cute!

    I wish Jellybean would sell baby clothes too! It wouldn’t be too hard since their designs are already dainty anyway.

    What I bought with my 5,000php shopping spree. I can’t believe this look is less than 3,00php!

    Top, skirt, bag and earrings, all from Jellybean!

    Instant MODE fashion! Been looking for off-shoulder tops like this. And doesn’t this black skirt remind you of Girls’ Generation during their Mr. Mr. promotions? I’m an obsessed SoShi.

    Here I am all smiles after shopping. Yay for free clothes and accessories!

    Thanks again to Jellybean and Meg Magazine!

  4. I Got A Boy (Contest Entry)

    (Choies top and pants; Romwe jacket; Skechers sneaker wedges; Hype this on lookbook.nu here)

    My look for my Toppo Philippines Toppo Top Girl video entry! If you’re a fan of Kathryn Bernardo, you’ve probably heard about this contest, or even tried it out for yourself!

    The contest encouraged you to showcase your talents and you may be the lucky winner of a billboard with Kathryn, a Candy magazine cover, a trip to Japan and the title Toppo Top Girl Philippines!

    I’ve been joining so many contests ever since I was a teen, but I’ve never found any contest as thrilling and as fulfilling as this one! So I’m really hoping for your help to achieve this dream!

    All you need to do is vote for my VIDEO here: https://toppotopgirlph.com/entries/page/176

    This look was actually my take on SNSD’s costumes during their 3rd Japan Tour. Remember the Pink/White GG tops, denims and leopard accent? Well, in my video I was actually dancing to Girls Generation’s I Got A Boy, so I decided to go with this look.

    Also, there’s just something so swaggy and sexy with waist tie-ups. Makes me feel like I’m always ready to dance! Haha!

    To all SONEs out there I hope you like my look, and VOTE for my video too!
