sewing 101

First day of sewing class and I think I did pretty well! Haha. I think I have a hidden talent for sewing, or at least a knack for it. I seem to enjoy sewing even if it's just following a straight line or a pattern. :)

Hello sewing machine!





 my work. looks good right? ;)

back to school

First day of school began today! Well technically I only enrolled in 2 subjects since my course will be offered in September. I decided to enroll myself in pattern making and sewing which I think will benefit me even if I don't want to become a fashion designer. I can still make clothes for myself! ;)

Class schedule

Patterns here we go!

My customer - McQueen. haha

a day of firsts


The church was adorned with flowers!

Sunday was my first time to be a Godmother to my college friend's baby boy, Calix Ishmael. Coincidentally it was the feast of the church the ceremony was held in and so there were a lot of people that day!

modern day dress up

Ever since I can remember, I associated being a Christian woman as someone meek, modest and simple. Probably like the Maria Clara of olden times. But as I look around me now, there are more and more people playing dress up. Fashion seems to have taken over the world and it has become an even bigger phenomenon than it ever was before.

Take for example, a normal girl from say 8-10 years ago. She would have most likely worn a skirt above the knee or a tank top with no cover up and considered it "daring". But now, the shorter the better, the quirkier the more applauded, and the weirder the more "normal"

To clarify my point, I'm not discussing about the kinds of fashion that people wear nowadays but with how I feel, being a 21st century Christian woman and someone who loves fashion and dressing up. I admit, there are instances when I feel like I'm a "lesser" Christian simply 1.because I cannot conform myself to the norm of dressing "appropriate" and "normal" at times; 2.because I go gaga for pretty clothes and makeup; 3.because I'm a sucker for fashion.

But as of late, I think God has been trying to tell me something all along but it only took me just recently to figure out. It's okay to want to dress up, it's okay to like clothes, fashion and makeup, it's okay to want to look and feel pretty. I know many passionate Christian women who burn for God, but also have a bit of fashion and extracurriculars on the side. But at the end of the day, He wants to know that all these things do not invade the space in my heart. He wants to know that HE is still my number one priority. No matter how many clothes, shoes, bags or whatever I own, He wants to know that it's HIM I worship, and HIM alone.

So I'm embracing who I am and erasing the insecurity that pops into my brain every now and then.

army navy

How was your weekend? Me, I had a really good Sunday! I was again on one of those moods where I didn't really feel like dressing up but that was the outcome anyway. 

Haven't worn this dress in probably a year and a half and I was doubtful whether or not I could still fit in it since I bought it about 2 years ago. Surprise surprise, not much has apparently changed since the dress still fit perfectly and it even seemed a little loose. ;)

one of those days



This is the first time I've worn this top out mainly because I though it was so formal for a normal day out and had no occasion to wear it to. But I finally caved and thought, what the hey, I'll wear it out.

as white as snow

Today was movie night with the family! We went to watch Snow White and the Huntsman. Honestly, what is up with all these movies/t.v. series about Snow White?? Once Upon A Time, Mirror Mirror, and now this! Is Snow White the most beloved character or something? Haha.

Anyway, the movie was okay. It was a bit dragging at the beginning and the ending wasn't all that great but at least they injected a little humor to it. What I didn't get was who Snow's "true love" was. Was it the huntsman or William? Anybody care to enlighten me on that? :)

Took some pictures outside in our little garden (now I can proudly say that it's a garden haha). Haven't worn this maxi skirt in a while and I thought it complimented the "chill" vibe I had going.

point and shoot


Managed to squeeze in a little outfit shoot yesterday when I was out with my sister. This was taken at the CAFA building and it was probably the 2nd time I set foot there. In all my 4 years of college I've never roamed around the halls (or hills) of the campus in Talamban and I guess in a way it was a new experience for me. :)

hashtag burn

Here are some pictures of a great Sunday spent with friends :) 

We were supposed to go island hopping on Sunday but it got cancelled because of the storm. Meanwhile my family and I went to Shangri-la over the weekend and yes, the winds were so strong and it was high tide at the beach! So definitely a no-no. Since we didn't want to waste our plans, we headed over to Sheryl's house for some Shabu-shabu style dinner and a lot of fun and games!
