I’m currently in a small inn in Kalibo as I write this post. Things are winding down in this sleepy town where shops close around 9 in the evening. There’s resistance about going back to the hustle and bustle of Manila tomorrow but alas, life moves on.
The past few days have been a great adventure. My friends and I spent it in Boracay – swimming, eating, and partying ’til dawn. It’s been ages since I felt this carefree. I stopped thinking about work completely and thought only about where to eat next, how long I should swim, and what to drink while partying. It’s amazing how leaving all your worries behind can totally rejuvenate the spirit.
While I was away, this blog’s been a bit neglected. I couldn’t bring myself to sit in front of my laptop, edit photos, and write, while outside was the majestic view of the Boracay shoreline beckoning me to come out and take a dip. Now that I’m back though, expect regular updates. 🙂
I wore this to the Jewelmer Gala held last Thursday at the Jewelmer Boutique in Glorietta. It was an exclusive event to showcase Jewelmer’s latest collection for Spring / Summer to the press and VIPs. I have to say the collection was just so exquisitely beautiful that I would die to have any piece from the collection. I shall write about it soon so you will also see how beautiful everything was. 🙂
Since it was a day event, I had the challenge of coming up with a look that was sophisticated but also day-appropriate. In the end, I wore my one-sleeved red dress from Forever 21, which is more appropriate for a girls’ night out on its own, and layered this beautiful skirt from Blanc et Noir on top to tone the dress down and make it more daytime.
