Visiting Great Grand Loves!

Monday, October 31, 2011

Went to the Loyola cemetery today to visit my great grandparents. My lola told stories about the good old days. Great grand lolo had to sell kawayan in Tondo, Manila so that he can earn a living. Take note, he was doing it barefoot! 

Oh that sacrifice, barefoot+heavy bamboo+scorching sun = genuine love for the fam bam! 
LOVE YOU GREAT GRAND LOLO. <3 (sana lang may blogspot sa heaven!

PFW S/S '12: GUESS

Last Monday was a blast! 
Attended the PFW featuring the Guess collection. We arrived late so we weren't able to get a spot near the stage. It was just so sad. I promise to be early next time para makuha ang bongga na spots!  But yea, it was still fun!
Si Jay-R yan, promise! haha super layo talaga ng spot namin. 

Nonetheless, the collection was awesome! 
So GUESS -- plaid, fur jackets, denim pants, denim polos, short dresses
Dear model, thanks for making me look like a midget next to you. 
Sincerely, the litol girl, Jessica haha!
Hats off to DJ Sanya Smith for the oh-so-great music! 
Celebrity/model, Maxene Magalona! She's so pretty! 
Miss this girl! Nice seeing you, Sach! 
Thanks to Accessorize (like their facebook page)  for the tickets! Next stop, The Ramp Crossings.

The Five Highs

Saturday, October 22, 2011



anywhere, anytime, basta travel! Riding the plane would be a plus! 


Every girl's vice. 
I think? haha If not, then shopping, perhaps? 


I never really like cupcakes or sweets, in general, but I adore the Red Velvet cupcakes from Sonja's! If you haven't tried it, try it! It's gonna be worth it :> 


My friend Erika and I have been raving about the fish braids for a long time now. 
We kept asking each other "alam mo na kung paano gawin?" haha 

I don't know if it suits me though. :| 


Strawberries. Oh come on who doesn't love strawberries? tell me! 
That person hasn't tried it with chocolate syrup, maybe. Oh gahd heaven!

This is too random to even blab about. haha 
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Versailles, France Outfit

Versailles, France

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Most people would hate to admit it. But c’mon you cannot deny that at least once in your life, you dreamt of becoming a princess of a royal kingdom.

It’s not your fault though. As kids, we were all exposed to Walt Disney’s world– where all dreams can come true, all girls can become princesses. If your parents aren’t Walt Disney’s fans then maybe Anne Hathaway of Princess Diaries made you dream to become a princess. There’s no shame on it! (aminin na! hihi)

If there’s one place where all these childhood dreams can come true, it’s in this place. And, if there’s one place where the idea of splendor, luxury, grandeur and glamour was first revealed, it’s in this place. 

But of course, it's Marie Antoinette's Palace in Versailles, France! 


It was a long train ride going to Marie Antoinette's Palace from the Paris center. 

History tells us that the palace has been called as the"symbol of absolute monarchy in Ancient Regime". So dapat talaga kasama sa itinerary ha, hindi pwede mamiss!  

But really is there something more to this place than its overly exposed grandeur? 
Let the pictures do the talking...

Kamusta naman yun? Hiyang hiya naman tayong lahat sa palasyo niya.
Bongga-sity! 

Trivia: They spent approx. $2 billion dollars to build the palace! 
Ganun? hindi na nakita yung view? 
Pa-excuse sandali. Hindi mga puno ang pinunta ko! haha 

Kidding! These are my loves. (L-R Jessie, Lennor, Iya, Mai, Marby, Erika, Yours truly, Karin) 
Sorry ha hindi ko naprepare goddess outfit ko, sa susunod na lang! Emote na lang muna

Hindi kasi sila mahilig sa gold so pagpasensyahan niyo na. :|
Pagawa ko kaya to sa kwarto ko? Baka maloka na yung pintor, hindi pa rin tapos

The world-famous, Hall of Mirrors.
I felt like I was in the movies. @-) 

Trivia: The chandeliers are holding 1,000 candles! 
The Queen's room, where she had to give birth in public. 
Yikes! I think nakakahiya yun. I think lang naman. 

On to the sidenote or highlight (depende na lang kung anong pakay mo sa pagpunta mo dun)
"Every princess needs a prince" - sabi nila not me. haha 

Spotted! 
Dapat pala nag-iwan ako ng sapatos para diba Cinderella ang peg? Watcha think? 
Ambisyosa! 
Hindi naman ako nagprepare ng outfit. Talagang nag-match lang yung necklace sa environment. haha 

blazer: Plain and Prints, top: Greenhills, necklace: The Bling Project, skirt: Forever21, flats:SM Parisian

Going back to my question, "But really is there something more to this place than its overly exposed grandeur?"

Many would have said "Ay kung ganyan ang bahay ko, hindi na ako lalabas, nandito na ang lahat". (sure ka? final answer? "guard, bawal na lumabas ang prinsesa!")

But seriously, do you think you can find everything that you need in here? 
What happens if the parties have ended. What happens if the guards and housekeepers have all gone home.  
Would this place, with all its grandeur and splendor, still make you happy even if you're all alone?

Just something to think about. 


"I have seen all, I have heard all, I have forgotten all". 
Marie Antoinette
