Like a Zebra.

Ruffled-shoulder blazer: Lhasa | Sexy White Shirt: Jar Clothing

I haven't thought or planned about my outfit today really, I have my morning-going-to-afternoon errands to go by today so I opted for this casual comfy look but still eye-candy worthy. 
So my peg for my look came from the many Hollywood celebrities wearing that "Sexy White Shirt". 
Best thing about my shirt is that I didn't cashed out 395 for a very simple white t-shirt.
Fortunately, Jar Clothing from St. Francis Square offers shirts like these for only 150php! So definitely I'm goin' back there for ALL COLOURS! :))

Liquid leggings: 168 | Ballet flats: Parisian | Bag: Liz Claiborne

And oath to oneself: As long as I'm not getting any hair styling and colouring, then I would put my hair in a BUN. :))
So pro'lly this week, I'm getting it all done, maybe a little "gigi" perm on the side? haha.

Tassel necklace: Bubbles

After Hype (Youth fellowhsip), Jacky, Kim and me went to Moonleaf, Congressional for that weekly milk teas. Along side its store, there's a pastry shop called "The Cake Box", while ordering for a red velvet (which is heavenly by the way!) I saw boxes of games over the counter, free for everyone who wishes to stay to play with. Then I saw... CLUEDO! In a card version by the way (like Monopoly Deal) and immediately, I ask them to transfer and eat those lovely cupcakes via Dine-In! :))

Look what Moonleaf tea shop offers this Chinese New Year: Red Pearls! Kakaiba lang. Haha.

Descendant of a Heroine.

Today was Melchora Aquino aka Tandang Sora's Bicentennial Birthday Celebration. And as a direct descendant (yes. you've read it right. DESCENDANT. :D), we've got VIP treatments to this event. 

What I love about my look is that it's not that planned (bought the top with Jacky from For Me Trinoma the night before! XD) at all. :)) But one thing's for sure, when in need of a FILIPINIANA dress, always run-sack... MOM's CLOSET! :)) 
There, I found a patadyong or an abaca shawl, a skirt (which the details near its Hem, i Love!) and her brooch, and voila! Filipiniana na ang peg! Plus! my shoes matched perfectly- ala Bakya style (Slipper clogs.)

Abaca Shawl: Mom's | Sheer skirt: Mom's | Brooch: Mom's | Sequined top: For Me | Chunky Heels: Jellybean | Clutch: Gift | Watch: Unisilver

Face: Olay Total Effects, Missha, Avon, Tony Moly| Eyes: 120 Pallete, Maybelline Gel Liner | Cheeks: NYX Cream blush in Orange | Lips: Carmex, Lime Crime Retrofuturist (lightly applied)

The event started at 8am at the Quezon City Hall (but we have to be there by 6am.) followed by a mass. My dad then gave his Acknowledgement speech. Among the VIP guests there are President, Benigno Simeon "Noynoy" Aquino III, Speaker of the House, Feliciano "Sonny" Belmonte Jr., Secretary of  DepEd, Bro. Armin Luistro (also known to me as my Boss. haha.), QC Mayor, Herbert Bautista, & Vice Mayor and Chairperson of the Tandang Sora Association, Josefina "Joy" Belmonte.

With District II Councilor (and Actor), Alfred Vargas.

with Ms. Joy Belmonte, whom I find to be very warm and charming. Can i vote for her for the Miss Congeniality award? :D

Le Familia with Mayor Herbert Bautista.

A truly awesome event to jump-start my 2012. :D
Happy Birthday 200th Granny!

Salmon like the Fish. (It's 2012 everybody!)

Turn it up, Mash it up, It ain't the end of the world...

Happy new year people! :D
2011 was the establishing year of The Kulayfool Kikay and it has been both fruitful and struggling year for this blogger. But nonetheless, I've finished its race with flying colours! 
And speaking of colours, I wanted to start the year with a pop of colours Salmon Pink and Teal. 

Location: De Ramos Residence at QC.

Sheer top: Splatt | Skirt: Forever21 | Sunnies: Folded & Hung |

Brass Cuff: Girlshoppe | Zebra Ring: Gift from Kate | Rake-ish ring: Divi | Turquoise cocktail ring: Forever 21| Vampire ring: Divi | Watch: Boyfriend's

Last friday, I went on a date with myself and the "thrill" of an adventure into the busy streets of Quiapo, Manila. The goal was to buy myself a new pair of contacts in Paterno St. since my trusty blue eyes is already out of grade (and date. haha.) So for 2012, I'm your new purple-eyed blogger. :D Okay I know what you're thinking: Quiapo? For contacts?! Well these are the frequent questions I was asked about the location where I buy my contacts:
1) Is it Legal?
Yes! In fact, all contact lens distributors here in the Philippines are from the busy-buzzy streets of Paterno. Don't believe me? Check out the back info of your lens box or your bottle of solution. You will see the address containing "Paterno St." :D
2) Is it safe?
Of course! Every optical store opened in the main street are BFAD approved. See for yourself. Scan a store, and you will spot that BFAD permit hanging on their wall.
3)Why do you travel all the way there to buy your contacts?
As most of you know, a product is much cheaper when bought at an outlet store. Being the practical Kikay that I am, I personally buy there for a cheaper bargain. :D

Tassel necklace: Bubbles

After Paterno, I rode a jeep going to, yep a Manila girl shopper's ultimate destination: Divisoria! But since I'm near to being broke (blame it on my Christmas shopping and two dozen inaanaks T.T) I only bought my 3 for 100 rings! Talk about cheap! There are also tons and tons of eyecandy things there that after I ate my lunch, I went straight ahead to the terminal of jeepneys going home to avoid being totally broke! haha. :))

Oh, and about the funny story how that Zebra ring my cutey-patootie friend Kate gave me...
While I was busy mingling after the church service, she slipped this around my finger and asked: "Will you marry me?" to which I replied: "Oh no! Next week pa yung gift ko sa inyo!" :)) 

LOL-ing aroung with my photographer. :))

Ta-duh! Whad'dya think of my new purple doll-eyed lens? :D Promise I'll do an FOTD soon with it! 

So while having a barbeque party that my boyfriend's parents hosted in their humble abode, we made kalikot of his new DSLR and we've found this: Retro Filter.

Fact! That grassy background you see there is a former swimming pool from '70s to the '80s. But they gave it up because of its high maintenance. :| 

Make-up, make-up after the shoot (What? ikr. i'm that much of a weirdo. haha.) 

Kim and his cousins, Klein and Ishy.

Another thing that I'm grateful for for twenty eleven: Experiences and Happenings that made us stronger and happier. A couple aimed to glorify Him and to feel the shower of blessings and guidance as a result for waiting for His perfect time, 'til the time we're made one. :)

Looking forward to more blogs to share with you this year Kikays!


Ms. Pepper Potts (My Christmas day look. :D)

Late post for the late 2011. :))
Whad'ya think of my Christmas look? It wouldn't have been possible without Iron Man. :)) Red and Gold will always be my Christmas colours, so Iron Man was the perfect piece for my outfit. :D Bought this tee with my boyf while we were Christmas shopping. Having just finished my Ultimate Alliance 2 in my PSP and a sneak preview of the Avengers movie, I am so high with my Marvel spirit, that I bought my boyf the guy version of this tee. :))
