Explore












The heat has been insane for the past few weeks. Sometimes I wish it would just snow in the Philippines. But on the bright side, I can finally wear the dresses I bought a few months back to at least help me beat the heat. Anyway, remember when I told you guys that I was going to make a list of the places I want to go to before the year ends? Well, I can't wait to share it with you all this week. I just finished writing them all down a few days ago. But thanks to my Dove Deo family, I already checked El nido off my list. I've been seeing a lot of articles about budget trips online and it gave me an idea to do the same. Ahhh! I'm thinking of going to Siargao and Bohol and Bacolod. I want to Eat, Explore, and meet new people. How about you guys? If you were to go anywhere in the world or somewhere in the Philippines you haven't been to, where will you go and why? Tweet or comment on my IG photo for this post your answer. :)

Fleur








Since it's summer, it's the perfect time to wear dresses, skirts, shorts, everything that can help us beat the heat. if you have been following my blog since day one, you would know that i'm really not a fan of floral prints. But I just couldn't help but like this dress when it walked down the runaway during a fashion show I judged last month. It's from a famous store in Singapore called, MUGIGAE. The owner, Geraldine was one of the Judges of the Fashion show as well. I got to talk to her about her growing empire and how they already expanded and made use of Social Media. You can already buy their items online at http://www.mugigae.com and you can also follow them on instagram: @mugigae :) 

My summer break is ending in 3 days. I can't believe 2 weeks has gone by so fast! 
But summer is definitely not yet over. Close Up Forever summer is fast approaching and I could not be any more excited to get closer with Mikyle and my barkada on MAY 16, MOA CONCERT GROUNDS. Follow @closeupph on twitter for promos and updates about the concert.

If There's A Will, There's A Way









This is what I wore to Devant's screening of Avengers Age of Ultron. 
I came from school so I didn't have time to go home and change. So I just changed into heels and wore Mikyle's Leather jacket, finished it up with a Red lipstick and voila! Problem solved.  From 8 am to 5:40 I wore this outfit with sneakers and no make up on. This is another ensemble that can be worn in many different ways. You can wear this with silver or black flats if you're not a sneaker person and just change into heels if you have somewhere more dressy to go to, just like what I did. Things are easier for me this way.  Just because I think my outfit isn't fit for the occasion or the event, doesn't mean I have to worry right away.  I can simply just think of ways on how it'll work out. Especially when you're under time pressure, you always have to be ready with a back up plan. And my "Weapons" for that are, 

1. A GOOD PAIR OF HEELS 
2. RED LIPSTICK 
3. BLAZER/ JACKET
4. ACCESSORIES ( Don't over do it. )

Summer is here

Summer is one of my favorite time of the year. Even if I only have a 2 week break,  I can still say that I look forward to summer every year. Not only because there's no school, but because I get to travel with family and friends. Last summer, Kyle and I together with my fellow Smart Prepaid Digital Ambassadors, went to Laboracay. It was so much fun! it was the first time Kyle and I experienced Labor day in Boracay. Not only did we enjoy, but we got to bond with our fellow bloggers and the Smart Prepaid team. Smart always throws the best parties! I'm excited for this year's #SmartLiveAllOut events. 

Anyway, Summer 2015 will be packed for me. My family and I, we love to travel. 
And it was only recently did we get to see more of the Philippines. We went to Davao before Holy week, It was amazing!!!! Julia went to La Union and Cebu. We decided as a family to tour the Philippines and see it's beauty. Our country is so beautiful and we don't even know it. 
Will share with you guys on my next post my Travel list. Places I want to go to before the year ends. For now, I'm sharing with you guys my summer essentials.


1. Bikini- I always bring my top 5 favourite bikinis every time we go to the beach. This bikini is from Triangl Swimwear. I love all their swimsuits! I'm trying to collect them. It's a little bit pricey, but it's worth it. It's both stylish and comfortable. 
2. A good book- I seldom read books. But when I do, I make sure it's a good one. Relaxing by the beach + A good book = Perfection :) 

3. Slippers- I've always been a fan of Havaianas since i was a kid. It's affordable, it doesn't easily break, in fact I own 6 Havaianas slippers and all of them are still alive!  
 4. A good bag- For backpack, I only trust Herschel. Their bags are spacious, it can even fit a 13-16 inch laptop depending on the size of the backpack. I always bring this bag when I travel. 
4. SHADES- Don't ever go to beach without shades. Any beach outfit will never be complete without shades. When buying shades, make sure it's a good quality. One that can last for a long time. I recommend, RAYBAN, AND ALL EYEDOLOGY EYEWEAR. Tried and tested. 
5. SUNSCREEN- Don't ever expose your face and body to the sun without sunscreen. Worse thing you can ever do. The heat can cause skin diseases and hyper pigmentation to the face. 
For Sunblock I recommend, Nivea and Aivee Aguilar Sunblock. 
6. Deodorant- It's important to have white and healthy underarms for us, girls. 
It's summer, this is the perfect time to flaunt our underarms. And the only Deodorant I trust to help me achieve whiter underarms is DOVE. 
7. Toothpaste- Summer is all about making memories, meeting new friends, or maybe finding love? hmmm. you'll never know! That's why it's important to always have fresh breath. And for that, I only trust, CLOSE UP. 

Speaking of Close Up and Summer, CLOSE UP FOREVER SUMMER IS BACK. BIGGER AND BETTER. LET'S ALL KICK START THE SUMMER WITH A BANG THIS MAY 16 AT THE MOA CONCERT GROUNDS. BRING ALL YOUR FRIENDS, OR YOUR SPECIAL SOMEONE AND GET CLOSER WITH CLOSE UP. 
SEE YOU GUYS THERE!

Day to Night

Hi everyone! It's been a heck of a long time since I last posted on my blog. 
But since I just finished all my requirements for school and the term is ending next week, I finally have time to share the posts I've been meaning to show you guys for a long time. 
I have a whole week packed for you guys. I'll be sharing my summer essentials, and summer outfit tips on the blog this coming week. Watch out for that.
In the mean time, here's one of the outfits I wore to a wine night with friends last week. 
If you guys remember from my previous posts, I've been wearing outfits that can be worn in two ways.  Here is another example of an outfit you can wear from day to night. 
You can wear this with flats during a day full of errands, then change to heels at night if you have dinner plans or a chill wine night with your friends. 

Oh! and remember the #AskDani I said I'll be doing every sunday? 
I'm working on it. The video was erased when Kyle's camera broke. :(
So I had to make a new one. Posting it this coming week as well. :) 





I fell in love with you because you know how to make things right, and that's the kind of person i need in my life to fill the space I have in my heart. Happiness is what you give me, and that itself is my reason to wake up smiling each and everyday. - Mikyle

If You Have It, Flaunt It







This is my take on one of Kim K's looks. If you guys are a Fan of her or follows her on Instagram, you very well know that she loves wearing leather or latex skirts with a cropped top or a white shirt. I love this look on her! Not only does she looking effortlessly sexy and beautiful in it but it also shows all her assets. Which means she is confident about her valuptious figure and she loves to flaunt it. Some people think it's a bad thing. But for me, it's actually an inspiration to those who don't like their figure or who has weight issues. Not that I have any. But I like the fact that she showed everyone that you don't have to be stick thin to be called sexy. Some of my readers have been emailing me and telling me stories about how they are so insecure with their weight and how they gave up on being fashionable or even buying clothes because they don't like their figure. Well, here's what I have to say. YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL. No one has any right to make you feel any less. Take Kim K as an example. She may be rich and famous, but she has also been called Fat countless times, Just because she is not stick thin or has a Victoria Secret Model body. But look at her, isn't she sexy and beautiful? Marilyn Monroe didn't have a model body as well, but she was named the sexiest woman in the world during her time. You don't have to be scared to look nice just because you're afraid of what people might say about you. Fashion is a form of expression. Embrace your God given assets. 
If you have it, flaunt it. :)

Problem Solved








I think it's pretty clear that I like the color black and white. For me, they're the easiest colors to wear. They go with anything. Like I always say, when in doubt, wear black. You can never go wrong with it. If you guys noticed, I've been wearing outfits that can be worn in two ways. In heels and in flats. In that way, in case of sudden change of plans, I'm always ready. My car has everything I need in case of any fashion emergency. It's better to be safe than sorry. You don't want to miss all the fun night outs or impromptu dinner dates with friends or your boyfriend just because you're not wearing the right outfit. To all my readers who commute, I know how it feels to always bring an bag with extra clothes and carry it everywhere you go because you have no place to leave it in. I used to commute everyday to school and it was my everyday dilemma, especially on days when I had events to go to. I would always come from school. Back then I didn't have a car yet, so I would always bring two bags with me, one for my school stuff and one for my extra clothes and shoes. So I suggest, if your school has a locker rental, RENT ONE. I swear your life will be easier. That's what I did when I was a commuter, and it really helped me a lot. Maybe it would also help you too, if you have the same problem as me.

Classic








Jeans will always be my best friend in terms of comfort clothing. 
I own more jeans than shorts. Only because I don't have to be conscious or cautious of what I'm wearing all the time. Not that I have anything against wearing shorts or anything, it's just that when it comes to dressing comfortably, Jeans will always be my choice. 
Plus it's easier for me to dress up and dress down with jeans. Especially with ripped jeans. Like the outfit I'm wearing here, wear this with flats, it would be already perfect for a day of errands. Then at night, just wear this outfit with heels, and you're ready for a night out with friends! 

TIP: Girls, when buying jeans, always buy the classic colors. 
Denim blue, black and white. Also with ripped jeans.
 It's easier to play with your outfit with classic colors, Because it basically goes with anything.

When in Doubt...








When in doubt, wear a maxi dress. Its so easy to wear and at the same time very classy and chic. You can easily change your look with just adding accessories to your outfit. With this outfit, I chose to only wear earrings because I wasn't really going somewhere dressy that day, and also because my outfit is already filled with floral details. It'll just make my look a bit over the top, so I just let the dress and the high slit speak for itself. I also decided to wear flats instead of sandals, only because I'm more comfy wearing flats. But sandals are best worn with maxi dresses. Especially dresses like this. 

Tip: When buying sandals, always buy black, brown or white sandals. 
These colors are easy to match in any outfit.

Start of Something New







As promised, this week is the launch of the big changes that’s going to happen in SIE. One being me updating regularly again after ages of not being consistent. I am so excited to share this big step with you guys. SIE will be busy every month. Will announce all these big changes VIA instagram this week. Watch out for that. 
For now, here’s an outfit I wore to a day full of errands and in between meet ups with friends and family. If you are a regular visitor of my blog, you very well know that I have an obsession with ripped jeans. I’m still not over it! you can never go wrong with the right pair of ripped jeans. I encourage you all to at least own one. It can spice up any outfit. I, for one own more than 5 ripped jeans. It really saves me from the days wherein I just want to wear a plain black or white shirt and flats. What I always do is, I bring a pair of heels in my car just in case I decide to have dinner with friends or go on a date with Mikyle. 
Just like my outfit here. You can wear this with silver or gold flats if you’re not a fan of wearing heels. Either way you choose to wear it, it’ll work.
