Oscars 2013


The Oscar's were held last Sunday in the States (Monday morning here) and I was so glad cause we didn't have class but then I thought "There aren't any local channels televising the Oscars" so I got sad and updated myself through Twitter instead. When I got online, I found out that they televised it on Studio 23 but by then my butt was parked firmly onto the computer so I didn't watch. When I checked my Facebook messages the next day, I got one from my friend asking if I'd make a post about my picks for the shows. So, CaLee, here it is. :))

Again I'm quite disappointed about the turn-out fashion-wise this year. :(  Trends I spotted were that the gowns leaned towards the lighter colors like nudes, whites, champagnes. There were also colors like blue but Jennifer Aniston's red BALL GOWN felt so out of place. I didn't love her look at all. It was like her waking up one day and playing dress-up with a ball gown!

Anyway, my favorites:
Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive
Total glamour puss!! I loved her look at last year's Oscars and I loved it again too!

The Wind In My Hair

Such a weird title for the post but I couldn't think of anything! I think I'm finding myself stuck in another rut--writing-wise and outfit-wise! School's ending in less than a month from now and before that, as of now I have 4 major requirements to accomplish: my English portfolio, reports and experiments (+ packaging!) for the upcoming Engineering and Architecture Fair (that's March 8-9 at Abreeza), my FILIPINO RESEARCH PAPER, and our Literature play (say whuut!). It's funny cause most of those requirements are from my minor subjects and they make me feel like I'm in high school, like the play. I would much rather write a play review or something, or maybe that's just me.
Anyway enough of the ranting. This is what I wore to our blogger Valentine dinner last Feb 16. Upon inspection of my planner last year, I found out that our first blogger dinner at K-Steak (for chikka sake lang) was held Feb 17! So I thought maybe this should be made a tradition soon! :) Sadly, not everyone we invited was able to go due to last minute constraints so it was again just me, Dawn and Kwesh basically but Steph and Janvie dropped by. Plus, we also got to meet Ella. We ate at Bon Apetit at GMall. It was our first time there. I don't have photos of the food (and of us) though cause my sister borrowed my camera as it was her prom night that night too.
I wanted to wear something casual, chill and posh--like the rich classy girls wear for Sunday lunch or a casual dinner with friends. I wish I wore pants though, it was freezing that night!! Anyway, I don't know if I pulled it off but I hope I did! Haha
Enjoy the last day of the long weekend!!
(Thank God for it, I'm doing my paper and it's hard to translate scientific stuff to Tagalog)

What to Wear with Glasses



Who says girls in glasses can't be fashionable?

I wear glasses and I've been wearing them since 4th grade which is more than 10 years ago (go figure!). I would wear contacts but I'm an on the rush kind of girl, plus one of the reasons why I wear glasses is that if I don't, my cheeks would cover up my eyes when I smile. Haha! Dorothy Parker, an American writer and poet once said "Men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses". She might've been talking about me That is so untrue! Well what would she know? Nowadays, glasses are considered cool. If you doubt that, Google "girls with glasses" and you'll stumble upon Tumblr blogs dedicated to exactly that--girls with glasses.

Panagduyog 2013 (Part 2)


This is Part 2 to my Panagduyog post last Friday. I realized that I only had a few more things to write about what happened on the third day (our second day) of the conference. Oh well.

I updated the other entry with more photos by the way! Click here!

I Hate Love


Tired of being in the "When am I gon' find love" club
I come close, get a dose but it just ain't enough
Right guy, wrong time
 Right time, wrong guy,
What's the use, why even try

One Thing


Just a short post before we head off to church!

Here's something I wore to a movie date with my friend (and new photog) Lorraine about a month ago (oops! haha). We watched the noon showing of Les Mis and since I woke up late, I grabbed the first thing I saw.

Panagduyog 2013 (Part 1)


I know this blog has been dedicated to my personal and creative pursuits (aka fashion, non-school related and personal life AKA Farrah's less boring side), but I wanted to show you what I will (probably) be doing once I finish school. So presenting:
My Chemical Engineering life! *\(^_^)/*

*got that emoticon from my orgmate ate Sheilah. haha.




I didn't really like how the color of my photos turned out cause they were taken inside a department store so I edited them in a reddish hue just to get in the spirit of Valentine's Day.

Prom 2013


It's February already meaning PROM SEASON for high school kids. I attended prom some 5 or 6 years ago and I want to forget it!! My gown and make-up was a disaster!! Fashion then wasn't as it was now, and I wasn't as confident then as I am now so I was pretty limited. Lucky for the high school kids now, they have access to a lot of resources for inspiration like the internet, bloggers, etc. Plus, stores now offer better, more fashionable clothing and designers are more creative and adventurous. Kids these days are so lucky.

Anyway, here are some of my tips and picks for prom season.

My favorite star whom I watch out for on the red carpet for her age and personality-appropriate choices is Selena Gomez. She just always gets it right for me!

Tip: #YOYO You're only young once so try to shy away from jewel tones that can make you look older. Try wearing this beautiful plum of Vanessa's.

CdO foodtrip


I was in CDO for a couple of days last week to attend a Chemical Engineering conference, as well as you know, visit my lovah Mia Durano of thehandmadeturban.com. After a grueling first day (we arrived at 4:30 am on Friday and had plant tours from 8:30am-5:30pm!! More about that soon!), finally we could rest and do whatever we wanted so I called Mia and she picked me up. We went to her house so she could change and she took me to Centrio.

Dong Juan


Two Fridays ago, my friend Mithi and I went out after not seeing each other for a couple of weeks (wow, what's with the two-week interval period? :)) ) Anyway, after walking around a bit, we decided to stop by for a place to eat and chanced upon Dong Juan at the top floor of Abreeza.

Boho Glam


shirt dress: Cheap Monday
blazer: Forever 21
shoes: Parisian

Hey again everyone! Sorry I haven't blogged for a week! I haven't been that busy, but I haven't had the chance to go online since I drafted that other blog post. Anyway, over that week a lot of things happened so I have lots of stories to share with you. Lots of stories = lots of blog entries!! And not just entries I'm forced to write just for the sake of posting.

Anyway, this is what I wore to school last Wednesday. I didn't want to "cram" my outfit again so I peeked through my closet to see what I could work with. I was feeling so lazy and in a "dress" mood, plus I also remembered this waaaay old outfit of Vanessa Ann Hudgens in a shirt dress so I thought "Why not?". The shirt dress was too sheer though so I had to wear leggings. :( It totally threw off the aesthetics (meaning I felt so plain and wrong) so I wore a blazer to "Farrah" it up. I thought the end result was okay. What'd you think of the brown boho elements mixed in the more glam and polished ones? :)


PS. While searching for Vanessa Hudgens photo on the internet, I found out that she's currently dating Austin Butler aka Sebastian from The Carrie Diaries! What up!! They make a cute couple though!!
