I had some free time last night and used it by doing something creative. I made a DIY fringe necklace using only four materials: old silver chain, scrap denim fabric, beads and black thread. I’m so happy it turned out really nice and even got some compliments from my workmates this morning! Yes, I made it last night and wore it to work today (excited much). Haha.
It’s not so photogenic but I’m telling you it’s gorgeous in the flesh. Haha. I wanna make more of this in the future. My only problem is I don’t get to have as much free time as I’d like these days. I also want to buy more materials in Quiapo or in Divisoria so the next time I make accessories, I won’t be limited to the scrap/recycled materials I have at home.

In my search for a pair of comfy shoes online, I chanced upon some flatforms sold at a Multiply shop called Asian Vogue. I’ve already heard about these shoes before from the fashion blogs I frequent and upon checking out the Asian Vogue’s flatforms collection, I fell in love with this pair:

Aren’t they gorgeous? A little fierce, but chic. I love that it comes in brown, one of my favorite colors. The price is a little steep at P1,695, though. But I
like want it. Gotta check my funds first if I still can afford a new pair of shoes after spending a lot of moolahs during our recent trip abroad.
If you were me, would you buy this comfy looking flatforms? 🙂
I have this list of dreams in an Excel file kept inside my PC which I update whenever I think of a new dream I want for myself. One of the dreams I have the pleasure of keeping alive in my heart and mind is putting up a necklace business. This is known only to a few but I have a penchant for necklaces. I love wearing them and I love making them, too. Yes, I can make my own necklace made from scratch or from recycled materials.
Actually, I already have a name for my necklace business but I won’t tell anybody just yet. Clue: it’s a secret name derived from a brand of headphones. Haha. Soon I will make my necklace business dream come true. I will sell different kinds of necklaces, from bead necklaces to stainless steel necklaces, from those made from conventional design pieces to those created from indigenous materials. I will make them all and change the world of fashion with my necklaces.

Here in Manila where the blogging community is a very active one, more and more bloggers are flaunting their blogger identity to the public by wearing blogger shirts that come in various cool designs. Isn’t this t-shirt below cute?

This shirt is part of the blogger shirts collection sold at BloggerShirts.com, a shop owned and operated by fellow Pinoy blogger Fitz Villafuerte. It’s priced at P270 and I think I’d like to have one soon. In the exact, same color and graphic print. The Pinoy Blogger text along with the sun and stars design is calling out to me. Actually, there is a black version of this shirt designed for ladies. And it looks nice, too.

So, I was just blog hopping one random weekday last month when I chanced upon this local site that sold sexy white shirts in plain scoop and V-necks. After getting awed by its classic appeal and simplicity, I felt the urge to buy one. It’s pretty cheap at P395 (plus P50 shipping fee within Metro Manila), though I have gotten myself a really nice white V-neck at half the price many moons ago.

In other words, I did buy the shirt. But not before searching the net for reviews of real people on the quality of the shirt. It seemed my gut feel was right because all the reviews I have read were affirming the shirt’s good cotton fabric that didn’t stretch or shrink after several washes.

When I’m not looking for a new necklace, I’m getting myself a new pair of pearl earrings. I’ve always had a penchant for pearl earrings. They’re elegant, classy and easy to match with different clothes. Whenever I wear a pair of pearl earrings on my ears, I feel feminine and powerful. I dunno but there is something about pearls that never fails to leave me in awe.
my latest pearl earrings acquisition
So far, I think I have a dozen pair of pearl earrings in different colors and designs. It doesn’t matter if it’s genuine or faux pearls, so long as it’s of good quality, I’m into it. It doesn’t have to be plain pearls, either. The pearl could be encased in metals, enclosed by studs or attached to chains. Sometimes, a little imagination can go a long way.
