Plane-wear and late night shoots

hype this look on lookbook and chictopia!

Flew to Manila yesterday in this outfit. Despite these high high heels, this outfit is probably one of the most comfortable I’ve ever had on. I blame the cardigan. I am in love with it. The sad part is, I just stole this from my sister, and thus, can’t tell you where to get one for yourself!

In other news, I went straight to the shoot for Elite Models from the airport last night. The theme of the night was fierce and cold. We had such dark make up on, and I swear, I had no idea my hair could reach those heights! After all the preparations, we headed over to the neighboring hotel and our shoot at the pool. Can I just say that late night pool water is FREEZING! My teeth would NOT stop chattering! And no, it was nothing racy. Rather, it was very well planned and executed. Xander Angeles took the shots (and I guess planned the whole thing) which makes me soooo excited to see the output, since he’s such a master at his craft.

The shoot ended a late, and I grabbed dinner a little past midnight, which is why I had to time to post yesterday (and why it’s almost noon, and Im still in bed.)



Do you recognize this top?

I’ve already packed most of my clothes for Manila, so I had a hard time picking out what to wear today. I hate wearing the same clothes in the exact same way, so I played around with my top a little. The photo below shows how I wore it the first time.

Today, all I did was button it up without wearing the sleeves, fold the collar down to the back, and tie the sleeves up below my bust to give it a little shape. Voila, instant tube top! Here’s a clearer photo of how I did it.

What do you think? :D

10 ways to beautiful skin and sexy hair

Because I get a lot of questions regarding skin and hair care, I’ve compiled 10 easy tips that I totally live by. Thanks to for the words. Enjoy!

Get an Early Start

Make a habit of washing your face a few hours before bed. If you wait until you’re tired, you’re more likely to blow it off—allowing “toxins and dirt to stay on there all night,” says dermatologist Laurie Polis of N.Y.C. Another consequence? You miss the best time to treat your skin. “At night there’s more blood flow to the skin’s surface, and there’s nothing else on your face to interfere with absorption,” Polis says.

Sleep On Your Back

Note to Audrey Hepburn fans: Lying on your stomach is bad for “beauty sleep.” The average head weighs 7 to 8 pounds—a lot of pressure to be putting on your face every night. In fact, many dermatologists say they can tell what side of the face people sleep on by the number of wrinkles there.

Get a Lift

Sleep with your head elevated on two pillows, or put the headrest area of your bed on 2- to 4-inch pieces of wood. Macys has coupons for great pillows.Gravity helps lymph and blood flow so fluid won’t accumulate, Polis says.

Save Money, Not Wrinkles

At night you don’t need to worry about eye treatments smearing your makeup, so slather on the richest formula you can.

Avoid Carb Face

To wake with defined cheekbones, eat a high-protein, low-sugar dinner (try salmon and asparagus, a natural diuretic). Skip the rice, pasta and potatoes. “When our diet’s high in glycemic carbohydrates, our features take on a soft, doughy appearance,” says Connecticut dermatologist Nicholas Perricone.

Brighten Up With Concealer

 Why stop at undereye circles? Dab it on the inner and outer corners of eyes, the outer sides of nostrils, and either end of the lips and—bam!—everything will suddenly lift up. Says New York makeup artist Mally Roncal, “People will start asking who your surgeon is.”

Lots of Layers

 There’s a reason wind machines are a photo-shoot staple: Hair that’s tousled is more provocative than stiff, straight planks. So fake the breezy effects of a blower with swinging layers. If you have medium to thick hair, ask your stylist for choppy layers all the way around your head (like Jennifer Aniston‘s). If you have fine strands, all it takes is a few chin-grazing pieces in front.

Knotty is Nice

 The most appealing looks aren’t perfect.Gisele Bundchen‘s mane man Harry Josh tells us how to re-create her signature rumpled style: “Flip your hair upside down and give it a good shake. Then flip it back over, scrunch the crown, and finger-comb the ends.”

Go Untucked

Experts agree that the surest way to fizzle your sizzle is by pushing hair behind your ears. “It’s juvenile and generally not flattering on anyone,” says N.Y.C. hair pro Garren. “Pull your hair back if you’re at work, but on dates you can let it fall in your face in that flirty, Kate Moss kind of way,” says Harry Josh.

Add Volume

“Sexy hair should have natural texture and volume,” says L.A. hairstylist Giannandrea, who has created sultry looks on stars like Eva Mendes and Drew Barrymore. He suggests spraying hair evenly with volumizer and combing through before drying. However, since movement is key to sexy hair, he warns against additional products because “heavy styling aids can cause the look to go limp.”
