Missing Mr. Sunshine x street style

Since we haven’t seen Mr. Sunshine for quite some time now, due to some “natural calamity” we had experience. It’s kinda obvious that he is definitely missed. He may be appearing at some point, but that last for at least an hour, and viola! Dark clouds are up again. :( as what I've told you on my previous posts, I am not that much into rains, beside from being stocked at home, I hate the gloominess, sadness  and the negative aura it brings plus anlakas maka senti ng rain! Who’s in favor with me? Haha 

Any who, let me share with you what I wore during these tardy days. Lazy outfits all along!

Share The Love

Being stocked in our house or the past few days is quiet depressing, but what’s even worse than seeing people most especially your kababayan crying out for help for their lost homes? :(  It actually breaks my heart when I heard/saw in the news how tropical storm “maring” brought destruction the Philippines.

Several areas in Luzon have been placed under a state of calamity due to the torrential rains brought by an unprecendented southwest monsoon and enhanced by the tropical storm Maring that struck on Sunday, August 18. The areas include the provinces of Laguna, Pampanga, Bataan, and Cavite, as well as Parañaque City and the towns of San Mateo and Taytay in Rizal, and Sta Barbara in Pangasinan.

Photos from Google

Across Luzon, more than one million people (223,991 families) are now affected by the weather disturbance, with the number of dead reaching 9, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported on Wednesday morning, August 21.

As said in the news areas that had been affected lacks water, food, clothes and medicines (for most of the people especially children are getting sick already). If only I could fly to those affected areas just to give them what they need.. I did it agad agad!  but sadly, I have no power to do that. *sigh* :(


For now, what we can do best is to pray for the victims of this calamity and that even for a minute, offer a prayer and well-wishes to these people. And aside from that, we could help all those in need through the following donation outlets (which is grabbed from

August-full Surprises

Ola lovelies! We’re now embracing the month of august! Hooray for that! And I’m quite excited for this month, for I am to collaborate with some online shops and with this person who’s making a “name” in the industry of photography none other than Mr. Iko salas. Niko “Iko” Salas was my former schoolmate in High school, and his talent and creativity are truly exceptional (later on I will do a post regarding his achievements and some of his photo shoots as well! ). But First let me share with you what I wear during a so called “movie date” I had with boyfie lately #mejocheesy haha! 

And as usual, We grabbed our lunch, talked about random things, watched a movie , walked around the mall, then after that we decided to take some shots of my outfit (see how supportive he is! :)). So as I was saying we headed to this under construction church to take some photos.

How do you like my pa.stolen shot? haha! 

On me :  Dress courtesy of Robinsons  (Pretty in Pink), wedge shoes courtesy of  Primadonna

A closer view of my dress from Pretty in pink. Since I felt so lazy that day, I just grabbed this from my closet, no need to accessorize na, yet it's so stunning pa din :)

I can sense that I'm to overused this shoes from Primadonna ! I love how I can easily pair this with my outfits! ♥

Forgive me with this. "to-smile or not to-smile look" haha! :p

Okay, I am not supposed to include this photo on my post, but I can't help it! Frustration ko talaga ang maging maputi! haha so please lovely readers, pagbigyan nyo na ko! :)

And as promised, let me introduce Mr. Iko Salas! Alright! So aside from being a degree holder of Marketing Management, Iko started as a creative photographer. While exploring, he met his college buddies who influence him to join a photography group in his school ( Likhang Mata - a group where anyone who have an interest in photography, despite of the gear that they have, they can post there taken photos in the group to get some suggestions and to inspire others as well.),from there opportunities come along his way: He worked as a runner for shoot covers in FAME Publishing (where magazines like Zen health are published), and from there he got the chance to finally achieve his first print in an article called “SHADES OF PINK”, followed by another break from DIABETEASE magazine, he also got a chance to be in the MEGA FASHION CREW SEASON 3, that inspired him to pursue his dream. I feel so honored and overwhelmed, that I'll be working with him very soon! So kilig and excited na talaga ko for our upcoming photo shoot!  Thank you dear! Love you from bits to pieces! ♥
