Breaking In

Well, I now have a tiny bit of confidence to post head-to-toe photos of myself after losing at least 10 lbs. of excess weight so far.

I had my hair cut yesterday because, despite my desire of having mermaid hair, I just couldn't bear the summer heat and the fuss of keeping my hair long. Sure, I could tie it in a bun (I always did) but I just gave up on the idea, I guess. Heat sometimes precipitates desires, I tell you.

Also yesterday: Post-Iron Man 3 (so much lolz), the boyfriend bought me a new pair of running shoes. So generous, amirite. We got it with a discount because Runnr has on-going promo where you can get a pair for a Php1,000 discount if you donate an old (still in wearable condition) singlet. I chose Brooks Pure Grit because it's designed for trails and I want to learn to tackle them.

I broke in the shoes earlier today for grocery duties. Hee.

For the LOLz: Runway Outfits for Everyday Living, Summer Edition

In fashion timeline, posting of the following photos is so yesterday. But it is summer in the Philippines (well, we're perennial state of summer except when the skies become merciful and pour) and they are from SS 2013 collections, so I guess I'm being timely in a sense, right?

In a summer fantasy in my head, I wear:

This Balenciaga printed cropped top but with shorts of the same fabric for when I'm working.

Moalboal Photo Diary: Sun, Sand, Sea, Sting

The boyfriend and I were not supposed to go beach-ing this summer, but some circumstance prevented us from going for the original plan.

When the year started, I enthusiastically planned for a trip to Baguio since we wanted to join this uphill running event at Kennon Road this April. I already had a pretty solid itinerary (more like where-and-what-to-eat itin)  until I found out that my cuddly potato baby sister is graduating college the same weekend!

The other half of the couple (not me) was (still is?) pretty bummed about it but very understanding and gracious about letting the Baguio trip go. So as an alternative, we decided to make a trip to the beach instead.
