Something Sticky

I get so much air mail from the UK, and everyone at home always wonders who’s writing to me. What they don’t know is that it’s that it’s always photos I get, and always from the same people. You can relax now, I don’t have a Penpal lol. It’s actually from Sticky9! I loooove instagram and take so much photos to post there everyday. Sticky9 lets me pick my favorites and transform them into bite sized magnets, which I then stick on my picture filled metal shelf! The best part? I just order online, and it gets shipped to my doorstep in a few days- TAX FREE! I’ve never had to pay any additional charges! The best! Just take a look at my shelf in the photos below- It’s filled with Sticky9 magnets and Instax films! Wait til you see my ref! Lol Sticky9 also gives you the option to make your photos a Jigsaw for a little interactive magnet fun, and soon they are coming up with bigger magnets! Who’s excited? I know I am!

P.S.

Please forgive the “Eye Candy” license plate on my shelf. lol Quite embarrassing. I forgot to rearrange it while snapping these photos (hence, the empty frame!) and NO, I didn’t make it myself HAHAHA. It was a college thing that I was given at our blue roast (year ender party thing). I’m not that vain hahaha

What A Guy Wants

There are so many things I want to talk about in this post! Gaah! Talk about reverse writers block! Let me skim through the minor topics quicky before I really get into the main one.

First, this is my first ever blog post with my new and freshly-colored-for-the-first-time-ever-hair! Whoohoo! That deserves a happy dance! I have been waiting for this day for sooo long and I’m happy I finally got the guts to do it. Now, I think I have just started an unhealthy obsession! I want more colors and I want them stat! That cant be good right? I also want to straighten my hair already, which Im gonna do before the month ends. Yay me for new hair styles!

Second, after writing yesterday’s blog post, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and review my old looks posted a few years ago. Can I just say- Oh My God. Let’s say that again. OH MY GOD WHATWASITHINKING. Sleeveless tops + clip on collars + leather shorts + platforms??? *cue barf now* I wont get into it. Let’s just say I am wishing for a mass delete button right now, and hopefully a “mass-erase” in everyones memories kinda button too.

Third and most importantly, I hope you’ve noticed the #shopWAGW selfie trend happening on Social Media right now. Some of your favorite bloggers, hosts, personalities, Djs, musicians, celebrities etc are all sporting a cap that says WHAT A GIRL WANTS or WHAT A GUY WANTS, similar to what I’m wearing on this post. This was actually a campaign that we at WAGW started to remind everyone that no matter who you are or what you look like, you are wanted. We sent out black boxes to a few of our friends with three words on the cover: “Because you are…”, and they open the box to reveal a cap saying “What A Guy/Girl Wants.” It caused quite a stir and I’m happy to say it was such a successful campaign! A lot of people are lining up for our empowerment caps in stores (available in all branches today, and in The Ramp Trinoma and Glorietta by this weekend) and online. They’re just Php298, and I’m hoping my readers can all grab one and take a selfie with it, and tell your friends to do the same! Why? Well read on below!

Boys and Girls today are constantly bombarded with an impossible, unattainable, and distorted standard of beauty. Many aspire to look photoshopped, flawless and perfect rather than real.

But there is hope, the #selfie.

Men and women, celebrities and average Joes alike, are posting selfies and challenging our narrow definition of beauty. Our news feeds and timelines show-off unedited, poorly lit, REAL images of people of every shape, color, and gender looking beautiful.

So we’re #sorrynotsorry to ask you to post a #selfie showing off this hat and encouraging you to do the same.
Because everyone needs to be reminded that they are What A Girl/Guy wants.

Happy Tuesday! x

Sass with Class

I used to love travelling to different countries just so I could dress up. I mean, it’s not that I don’t love dressing up when travelling now, I just realized a few new things that make me love it for a different reason. But back then, traveling was the only time I could take my boots/fur/scarves/blazers out to play, and when I knew I was getting on the plane, that was my main goal. (#IAmSoLame) lol. When I was younger, I had this impression that going abroad meant you could layer your heart away without anyone judging you. That you could sport the latest trends one on top of the other- the more the merrier! I thought about fashion more as an art than an extension of yourself, so wearing those monster platforms was welcome in my book, as was anything bordering on costumey. I was almost always over dressed, and decked in the latest trends- no matter if I was going to Disneyland or to a group tour or something else totally inappropriate! And yup, wasn’t the smartest packer either. Because of my incapacity to layer back home, I brought everything with me when I went abroad, easily doubling my luggage allowance. And then one fateful day, I saw a mom and daughter lining up the check in counter before us. They were dressed so simply, in blue jeans, loafers and a polo. Simple pearls on their ears and a good sturdy bag to hold their things. Their hair was in a low ponytail and their make up so simple. I looked at them and then looked back at myself in my 5 layers of everything and realized: Wow, I look so tacky beside them. That was when it finally hit me. My AHA moment telling me how sometimes less is more. How the right combination of simplicity will always lead you to a better and classier looking outfit than a ton of trends in cramped into one look. It was such a normal everyday kind of situation, but it completely changed my personal style. Ever since then, I learned how to “edit” my looks and create a more effortless, relatable and over all put together yet relaxed silhouette for myself. Wearing a simple dress doesn’t mean you are too lazy to dress up, or that you don’t have the eye for style needed to mix and match. It just shows that you know which cuts flatter your body most, and that if you can make a single dress look chic without even trying, you’ve definitely got an eye for style! What do you think?
