My fashion standpoint already rooted and I can no longer imagine life if I am not what I am today. Before I go to sleep I prepare the outfit that I am going to wear the next day, and if it is my day off, I will also be preparing my clothes for the next 5 days at work. It is like a routine already because I just can’t go to bed not prepared for the following day. I’ve found questions from a magazine that I would love to answer because as a blogger I have a say about fashion.

 

What sparked your interest in fashion?
When I was young, my aunts were on their 20′s and they wear beautiful clothes that I envy so much. I said to myself that when I grow up I wanted to look as fashionable as them. When they are not around I would open their closet and wear their clothes, I would use their make up and apply it to my face. Just by looking at them I learned to love fashion so much that I become one.

 

Would you describe yourself as shoe or bag-lover?
I am a shoe lover. I own more than 20 high heels of different styles and different colors.

 

What about jewelry and accessories?
Definitely! I love dangling chandelier earrings, huge statement necklaces and rings. I love Franck Herval, Forever 21 and Parfois accessories.

 

Who are your favorite local and international designers? Why?
My favorite local designer is Cary Santiago. He is very keen on details and clean cut silhouettes. And my favorite international designer is Monique Lhuillier. She can design gown of different lace patterns that would look feminine and sophisticated.

 

Who are your style icons?
Kate Middleton, Taylor Swift, Audrey Hepburn, Tricia Gosingtian and Verniece Enciso.

 

What is your opinion on today’s fashion?
Today’s fashion is bold and experimental. Young people are showing too much skin since cropped top and high waist short are the hottest trends and statement accessory piece is a must wear.

 

If you are a style staple, what would you be?
A long floral dress.

If there is one thing that people are anticipating when visiting Cagayan De Oro, that is White Water Rafting. This is considered an extreme sport only suitable for risk takers just like me. White Water rafting is included in my extreme sports bucket list, I guess if there will be something I will not try, it will just be Bungee jumping because it’s like diving head first to your death.

 

When we visited Cagayan De Oro, this was the first thing we did. We contacted Kagay White Water Rafting for our afternoon adventure. We chose the afternoon rafting schedule because we were late on our arrival and we were not able to go with the early morning rafting. With afternoon rafting it will only be 21 rapids in 2 hours, unlike the morning scheduled rafting wherein it is almost 50 rapids for 4 hours.

01

River view at the starting point. It is like “the calm before the storm” thing here.

 

02

I chose to wear rash guard and a colorful Aztec leggings for this rafting activity because of high risk of getting scratches if the boat will be capsized. I don’t want to go home bruised and scratched.

03 04

Life vest, helmet and paddle are my added accessories.

 

05

All set and ready with my sister, Belle.

 

06 07

This was the first rapid. I was too scared, I thought I’m gonna die (but I did not). I’m happy I’ve conquered that fear.

08 09 10

When the water is clear and steady, our tour guide give us chance to practice floating since we are only allowed to float if the boat will be capsized. I also took this opportunity for me to enjoy the water.

 

11

There are only 4 of us in the boat including our tour guide.

 

12

Another rapid.

 

13

While waiting for the next rapid, I transferred to our photographers kayak and we take turns with paddling. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery because I felt really close to nature.

 

14

The team! The guy on the left is another tourist who’s with us during rafting, my sister and our tour guide.

 

16

The last rapid is one of the most dangerous rapid because the possibility of getting capsized is high, but with team work we were able to paddle back to our safety.

 

Last group photo to the finish line. This is something I will never forget and something that I will surely not forget. White water rafting brought me so much adrenaline and nerve wracking fear, but at the end of the day, you will just say “I survived!”.

 

17

I have never felt this close to my sister and I am glad we have traveled this far because it only made us realize how blessed we are to have each other. Thank you for being the best “Ate” in the world.

 

Check out our White Water Rafting video below:

To end the hungry night we visited Missy Bonbon Breadshop for our dinner.

 

19

Cakes make me drool and these ones are just too lovely to eat.

 

20

I ordered Pesto pasta and my sister ordered Tapa meal. The food are just so-so (not so bad and not so good).

 

21

Cookies and cream and Chocolate fudge smoothie.

 

22

Black forest cake. I don’t like it, it’s too dry, soft and airy. Red ribbon black forest cake will still be my favorite.

 

The experience was so awesome and unforgettable. This has been the best time I had with my sister and we will surely be travelling more. Visit Cagayan De Oro and try White Water Rafting, this is a highly recommended activity in CDO.

I have finally found a versatile classic dress that would never run out of style for the next few years. I love classic pieces because they would eventually come back few years after from the time it become trendy. Who would forget about the skinny jeans and high waist shorts, they were 1980′s style before it was reinvented in a more fashionable way 2 decades after. Eventually when a new trend sets in, we can expects its come back 2-3 decades after.

 

I also like how fashion innovates nowadays through accessorizing. Accessories are like magic and they have the capacity to change the entire look into something different. Picture me wearing this dress without accessories. Boring right? I am not a “less is more” type of person, I am “more is more” type because for me accessories can add character to one’s look. Always choose classic pieces that you can wear with other outfits and something you can use in the long run. Pay attention to details and keep in mind to never go out of style.
