[Outfit Post]: Viridian Chic ♥♥♥

"An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight... the truly wise person is colorblind."Albert Schweitzer 

Come to think of it, I was never in sync with the trends. The mullet and peplum skirts fad had been in the lime light for, what, a year ago? And I was just getting myself some of it pretty recently. It's not that big a deal to me though, but nonetheless, I'm quite happy that for once, I got myself this particular piece, also in the color which is definitely and currently in the hot seat: Skater Skirt in Mint Green! 

I particularly love flowy skirts since they instantly inject that much needed sweetness and femininity to your look. I guess you're all quite used to my very colorful outfits, yes? This time though, I wanted to be subtle. I opted to accessorize less as I had to make this skirt the highlight of the entire look. No color-blocking nor print on print for now! :)

With skirts like this, don't you think it's really necessary to twirl? :p

I would love to read your comments! Tell me what you think ^_^

[Outfit Post]: Candy Wonderland ♥♥♥ and then some.. :p

"Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up." - Allen Klein 

*DISCLAIMER : This post is super bombarded with photos*

Hello beautiful, fabulous readers! I sincerely hope that you are having an amazing day, or night :) As for me, I had a wonderful weekend! Please allow me to share it with you through this photo-heavy post, and let the pictures speak for themselves.

So for today, John and I strolled along at our favorite mall in Quezon City and we were too early, perhaps just a few minutes when the mall opened so there weren't a lot of people yet. I took the opportunity to take these outfit shots at the garden, far from the crowd. Yeah, you can say I'm still a bit shy posing here and there amidst many people. I was so happy with the outcome of these shots and I definitely loved the backdrop! It was quite HOT though! I guess you can tell how glaringly bright the sun is, burning my scalp. Oh, the things I would do for this blog haha :p Oh anyway, I've blabbered many times how I love Summer because I could flaunt all the loud colors I have inside my closet. Here's another ensemble made of bright sunlight, blue skies and pretty blooms! Welcome to Candy Wonderland! Hope you love it! ^___^

On a totally unrelated note, are you girls familiar with this Korean song "Gwiyomi"? Versions of its video had been flooding all over my Facebook news feed and I find it cute, too cute actually. But since it's getting viral, I made an incomplete photo version of it. (I actually have a video of it too, but I'm not posting it here lol!)

But wait, there's more! John also has his OOTD too :D

After a fun photoshoot, we watched "Oblivion". Sad to say, I didn't really like it except for Tom Cruise. So I guess I wouldn't be talking about it. We went straight to Cocina Juan! Our favorite restaurant at Maginhawa Street in UP Village. I've actually blogged about them twice and I wouldn't get tired sharing their good eats with you, once more. Chicken Pita Pizza and Churrazco de Guatemala for the win!!!

That's it! Thank you so much for your time ladies. Need to rest now as my back really hurts. Ugh! Signs of ageing.. :'(
