It was Friday and I asked my dad to drop and fetch me at the office because my car’s wheel got holes by 5 wires and I was afraid to drive it even if it was already vulcanized. Of course, my mom and dad were surprised that I told them that I won’t bring my car and they have to fetch after work because Friday is usually my gimik day. But I felt that they were happy that I’ll be home early since they have to pick me up after work.  So anyway, glad that my daddy decided to go to market on Saturday (he used to go to wet market on Fridays) and perform his daddy’s duties with me. After he dropped me at the office in the morning, he immediately bought 2 new tires for my car and made the tire that was vulcanized as my reserved tire. Awww… I’m so fortunate that I have a daddy like him. He still sees me as a young little girl.

Anyway, I was thinking if I’m going to bring my car or not because I was hoping that maybe, someone will text or call me and ask for a little talk about “US” (I guess you know who I’m referring to) but I was also thinking that he won’t do it since he’s busy on his work or he’s busy with his someone new (Oh well!). I don’t know. Perhaps. I kept on thinking him on that day because I really didn’t know what’s going on with him. I really felt so weak. No enthusiasm on anything at all because for the third time around, it happened AGAIN that he’s been not texting for so long. Anyway, this day, I decided to let myself move ahead on this. Maybe, this is the time to end this because of great differences. People know about this and I know they would understand me regarding our situation. So here’s my first photo showing or trying to show positivity:

This was captured while we were on Lanuza St. in Pasig near my sister’s place. We were caught in traffic and I was thinking since I was wearing lipstick, I decided to take a photo of me with this faux smile. Nyahahahaha…… Sorry, FYI, I’m a little bit vain so pardon me if I take too much photos of myself. You know, I love being photographed and so that’s why I have never learned photography even the basic one. Haha.. And also, sorry for the blurred photo. I just used the front camera of my HTC Sensation phone and the car was moving so there you are.

Okay.. Moving forward. This was photographed in our office. I asked my officemate to use her phone to take photo of me since my HTC Sensation phone was charging. I’m not a professional blogger. I’m just a newbie in this craft so you can share tips on outfit shots. Actually, I want to enter fashion blogging but I don’t know much about it. So please.. I’m open for your comments and suggestions. J

Remember my entry “Pasalubong from Tito Jeck”? That was the COTTON ON cover-up that he gave me from Singapore. Actually, I was just making “lambing” to him for a pasalubong. I never thought that he was going to take it seriously. Until he arrived in the office and handed me a COTTON ON plastic bag with this cover-up inside it. Awwwww….. So sweet of Tito Jeck J thank you so much for this! You never know how you made me happy on this. This is my first ever COTTON ON item in my closet. J

It was funny when someone commented on this photo in my facebook. She actually asked me what’s my secret of being beautiful (awwwww….. so sweet of you, Mitzie. Thank you so much for being such a nice person. You never fail to boost up my self-confidence and thank you for putting a smile on my face that day!). Actually, I was really flattered at that time. I never thought of someone who really appreciates me. Thank you for that. You never know how much you brightened up my day. Being beautiful is not about the looks. It’s always how you are to people you meet. Always wear smile because smile can make a person beautiful. Smile even if you’re hurt because that smile can change what you feel inside. Don’t stress yourself too much on what pain you have because life is too short to dwell on that pain. Stay happy. Everything has a purpose. Later on, you’ll realize why it happened to you. Keep moving.
I used that blue dress so many times most especially when I’m still new in the company since I wasn’t yet entitled to wear office uniform. This dress was from my sister when she was still in NEDA (National Economic Development Authority). It was a government office located in Pasig behind UA&P (University of Asia and the Pacific). So that was a very long time ago and I still manage to keep it. Actually, I already kept it inside a box wherein those clothes are about to donate. Gladly, my mom hasn’t removing it yet. So that week, I was thinking what to wear on Friday and I immediately thought of it. I thought of this dress and partner it with that COTTON ON cover-up. I also thought that if ever I’ll have a surprise night out, I can still manage to look dressed-up even without that cover-up. And there you are. J

DRESS: Sisley
EARRINGS: The Ramp Crossings
RING: LSN Fashion
WATCH: St. Marage
SHOES: Greenhills
COVER-UP: Cotton On

I posted this photo in my facebook and many have liked it. Thank you for all the likes. I may look thin here but being thin remains here. But in reality, I’M FAT! Yuycks! So I still have to go back on working out. Boohooooo!!!!! Many have liked it because of my shoes and those shoes were given to me by my sister because her feet were killing it. HAHAHAHA…. Thank you so much, sister! J You know how much I like it when you showed it to me. I’m so glad were almost the same size of shoes. yay! J

So there you have it. I made my day positive by dressing up like this. You know what I’m going through right now and I’m still hanging on a decision that was never made. I just hope for a better decision. Whatever that is, I’m fine. I don’t want to dwell in my past. I just want to be happy with my life ALONE. I want to do the things that I was doing way back when we were not yet together. I need to learn the basics in life because he taught me to depend on him where I can’t already move by myself. This time, I have to trust myself that I can still those things. I’m not young anymore. My life is starting now. I don’t need to depend my happiness on others. Instead, I have to be happy by myself. My plans will continue. I know he knows it. I just want to forget everything about us. As if he didn’t exist in my life. I’ll move. I’ll let go thing between us. I hope, next time, this won’t happen again; that I learned by mistakes and NEVER EVER do it AGAIN.

I’m beautiful and no one can ever make me beautiful except me. I’ll be STRONGER than now. I’ll fight for what I feel but I have to be smart enough to know what and who I’m fighting for.

Aug, 20, 2012 : Portfolio for CravingFor Make-up

When my friend texted me about this, I immediately agree upon it. I never asked anything about it because this was my dream ever. To put on make-up and to get my hair done very well by a professional make-up artist/hairstylist.

Photoshoot was one of my biggest dreams ever. Back when I was in highschool, I dreamt of being photoshoot for a magazine. One page of me was enough. As long as my face is there, nothing really matters.

I love to pose (well, you gotta check my facebook so you can see how vain I am when the camera starts to focus on me). I’m a camera freak. I took basic photography lesson but I don’t think it works. The photos that I took really sucks! So I guess I’ll be better in front of the camera rather than being behind. It was already tried and tested. Lol.

So anyway, my friend discussed this shoot to me. The shoot will be held at my friend’s house just across our home. Haha.. and I’ll be having 2 photographers. I told my friend I don’t want to have a guy photographer because I might feel odd since I’m just a newbie in this kind of theme. But when I learned that my photographers will be both female, I didn’t make a hesitation to do this. The shoot was going to be for a portfolio for her friend who studied short course for hair and make-up. So as a starter, she needs to have portfolio to show to her soon-to-be clients her works and her capability of giving satisfaction to her customers.

Actually, this was the first time I did a photoshoot like this. This was really new to me. I couldn’t imagine that I did this. For a lady like me who has lots of fats and no curves at all????? Oh gawd! Self-confidence was really boosting! Lol. J But my make-up artist/hairstylist really did a great job! I can say that all my photos were really amazing. She knows how to develop my assets as well as to create something better that will look good on me. So here are the behind-the-shoot photos taken by my good photographers:


So the first thing she did was my hair. I actually wanted to ask her everything about how he curled my hair because it really lasted long. The curl stayed up for almost 12 hours wherein the usual number of hours that the curl of my hair stays is only up to 1 hour. Haha..  yeah! 1 hour ONLY! I already put mousse on it after I curl it but before when before I get into an event, the curl’s already gone. Oh no! Can you tell me how did you do this??? It’s nice, right? I love how it turned to be from straight to curl! SERIOUSLY!

Okay.. So here’s the thing. I told you that this shoot was really new to me and the self-confidence was really boosting! Well, here it is. It was a body airbrush. Meaning, it was a bit nude but it was not pretty obvious. Some were telling me that my clothes were really nice because it was too colourful. Oh well, that’s how great and creative my make-up artist/hairstylist is! J The theme was RASTA. So when you think of RASTA, the first thing that will pop out of your mind is BOB MARLEY. See how BOB MARLEY will join this shoot. Lol J

Are you thinking how did she/they do it? First, she asked me to wear a sando and tie it so it will turn out to be a “hanging sando”. Second, they put tissue and served it as pattern so she can trace the shape of the “hanging sando”. And lastly, she used the airbrush and patterned the tissue that was shaped on me. We were really amazed when she was doing it to me. Just imagine you’re printing a design on a shirt. That was exactly she done to me.

So here’s the before-and-after photo. Look how she transformed me from kawawa-looking to an artistahin-peg. Lol. As you stare on this photo, umm.. As I’ve told you, I was half-naked since body airbrush was done to me. So please… NO TO JUDGEMENTS! Accept art as it should be! Lol. J

This is my one of my favourite photos. I really love how my photographer made me long-legged on this picture and as if I have a flat tummy! J yay! I got to inspired to go on work out more often. *evil laugh* So what can you say about this??? I looked tall, right?

Okay.. so this is it! Say hello to BOB MARLEY! Since RASTA was our theme, she drew Bob Marley’s face and traced it on me. AMAZING! Such a talented girl! Is it look like I still have a shirt on me? Hmmm….

The editing was so perfect! As if I really have a perfect skin as well. I look so thin here! Yehey for this! J I think Bob Marley was emoting too with me. hehe..
Close up shots
I love the photo on the left side. Everybody loves it too. The glimpse of the sun really reflects on my hair and it also adds up to the effect of the photo. Nice job!


This is the most “like” picture on my facebook. When I made this as my profile picture on my facebook, I got 78 likes and lot of compliments. For those who gave compliments on that photo, thank you so much! It was all because of my make-up artist/hairstylist and my 2 great photographers! J

This photo was captured by my good friend, Joy J see the signature on the lower right side? J She told me that this photo was one of my make-up artist/hairstylist’s favourite because she can write something on the side. Great photo, Joyers! J I so love it! J

Again, closed-up shot! Oh gawd! I so love my hair! I wish I could make my hair like this everyday! Please tell me how to do it! J

This is my favourite among my photos! It looks like I have a very smooth skin and fair complexion. I just feel so sexy and I can imagine the commercial “I can feel it” with matching moving shoulders. Haha.. I can fake myself that I’m thin where in reality, I’m NOT! Hate it! J

I remembered the moment when this photo was being captured. I was trying to do a half-smile (smile with no teeth) or should I say a “pa-cute”smile but I gues that half-smile or the “pa-cute” smile wasn’t achieved. HAHAHAHA…. But hey, again, it was carried by my gorgeous make-up and hairstyle! Still achieved!

Hohoho!!!! All I can say is….. I love you Joyers for these shots! You made me gorgeous here! You’re making me sing, “I’m sexy and I know it!”. Thank youuuuuu so much, Joyers! I love you! J
I didn’t get wrong that I bought this pair of shoes. Have you read my blog entitled Primadonna Shoes? So here it is. This was the first time I used the shoes. The shoes perfectly suit the theme. I need to be colourful and it turned out great! Yehey again for this! J

I wish I could have this look EVERYDAY.. SEXY & GORGEOUS! Thank you for this look! J P.S. Can you please beware of my smile? Not all my smiles are true. Some of them are just fake! Haha..

So before I end this blog, I’ll introduce to you the people behind this shoot who made me extraordinary happy and made my extraordinary look. (From left to right): JOY. She’s my childhood friend who told me about this shoot and recommended me to her make-up artist/hairstylist friend to be their model for a portfolio. Obviously, the shoot was held at their house so I was really comfortable in placing myself anywhere there. She also made photography as her hobby since she wanted to enhance it and decided to be as one of the photographers. It’s her passion and I’m so happy that I have a friend who really takes a good photo. Someone will capture a good photo of me. haha.. *peace Joyers* J The girl after me is KAREN but Joy used to call her “Ka”. She’s my make-up artist/hairstylist. She’s the person behind my “wow” look. When I arrived at Joy’s house and saw her, I thought she’s kinda “masungit” and “mataray”. But as time passed by, we got along each other and got to ask her few questions. She also showed to me her tattoo and I was kind envied her because I want to have one. So anyway, if I have to endorse something or go to events, I’m surely hire this lady. She knows exactly what to do. She knows what to do on how to enhance some spot on your body or face and she also know what to focus on you. She’s really a good artist. After this shoot, I didn’t regret any moment of the day because when I saw the pictures taken in their camera, there was nothing to be ashamed of. Everything was perfect! I wish I could always get this look. Hey Karen, please tell me how you did this. Teach me how to curl my hair and how it would last. Haha.. Teach me how to achieve this perfect make-up on me. J And last, the girl beside Karen who wears pink shirt is KAREN too J they’re both Karen and they’re both good with their passion. Karen is the sister of Bambi’s (Joy’s cousin who's also my friend) boyfriend. We were glad that Karen has an external flash and a 50mm lens to capture a good photo. She was using Nikon D90 camera with a battery grip and external flash. I and Joy realized that a camera with a battery grip was too heavy to handle most especially when you hang it on your neck. Haha.. It was quite tiring for a shoot having a battery grip with no tripod.

So there goes out our photoshoot. Thank you for this, guys! It was like a dream came true for me. Haha.. I hope there’s still a next time for all of us. You know my number and I’m just one text/call away. I’m always good on weekends and after work.
