A Visit In Clark, Pampanga

Touchdown Clark! It’s really not that far if you think about it, just about two hours away and you’re in their beautiful city already. I went to visit SM City Clark and had a meet and greet there a couple of weeks ago. I love going to another place/city/province and meeting some of my avid readers, it really inspires me more to work and blog. Before the meet and greet, I was tasked to go around the mall, pick out clothes, do an ootd and showcase SM City Clark’s fashionable clothes. Before I show you my chosen outfit, let me show you how my shopping experience went.

Uniqlo. Of course I had to go inside this store- I love their items, especially now that it’s summer again. Check out some of their cute floral prints!

I went inside The SM Store and couldn’t decide what to get because everything was so pretty! This is the problem when I go inside SM Department Store, there are just so many cute things to find! Nice problem, right?

Every since I was introduced to this brand (it’s inside SM Store too), I always check their clothes out. They have some really cool and affordable clothes.

Baby G- brings me back so many high school memories! What color should I get? Hmm.

My last and favourite stop: Mango. They have the chicest clothes ever. I could actually make an entire look out of Mango apparel and accessories! After this, I went inside their dressing room to change to my ootd already. I really had a fun time shopping inside SM City Clark because the mall is so clean and nice, plus they have entertainment going around the mall to keep their customers excited all the time.

I also met some of Pampanga’s fashion bloggers and had a chat with them. Love making new friends! Anyway, so here’s my final look:

Print on print on print. Yes, it that’s time of the year again! Haha. I’ve been wearing a lot of black and whites during the “ber” months and now that it’s summer again, brights and prints are back! Well, they never really stopped anyway. I got this jacket from Uniqlo and matched it with this pastel top from Mango and printed skirt from Redhead inside The SM Store. You can call this look sporty chic. Sporty because of the checkered hoodie and my Baby-G watch and chic because of the necklace, top and skirt. Don’t be afraid to experiment with prints because if you want to be a scene stealer, prints are your besties.

I was also able to meet Andrei Paras, a super talented reader of mine. Thank you for this beautiful sketch.

Meet and Greet time! I had to wait for a few minutes on stage because we were waiting for the mic, so I just started talking to my readers who were waiting in line. They were all so nice and beautiful!

Everyone in line could ask me questions about fashion and blogging, and I’m so happy to hear that a lot of people want to start a personal blog. I chatted with some of my readers about their passion and interests too. Oh, and can I just add- using iso na talaga ang monopod! A lot of people brought it with them! Hahaha.

At the end of the meet and greet, there was a question and answer portion and I loved how someone asked me what she can wear on a date with her boyfriend whom she hasn’t seen for a year! Whoa. I asked her so many questions like, “where’s the date?” “is there an occasion?” “is it in a fancy restaurant?” and I think she wasn’t prepared hehehe! To the girl who asked me the question, if you’re reading this, I hope your date went well!

After the event, I ate merienda at Caffe Bene with the organisers and Pampanga fashion bloggers. I had so much fun at SM City Clark! Thank you for inviting me during your 3-day sale event. I love their mall- I love that they have activities and events all the time to entertain guests and they’re the only mall there who has a Korean translation on their ads and announcements. Cool, right? Also, I wanted to try so many other things in Pampanga, like their famous delicacies and destinations, too bad I was only there for a day. I wish to come back soon though. BMS.

There's something magical about taking outfit posts in Pico De Loro- I always feel like I'm enjoying more. When I have events at the beach, it's always nice to mix a swimsuit with a maxi skirt because it looks really beachy but still elegant- plus you can't really do it often in the city. A few days before this trip, I was able to drop by Common Thread in Greenbelt 5 and fell in love with their store and customer service. All the people working there are so friendly and they really have taste when they help you pick out the items you need. As you can see, I got a lot from them! It's convenient because they have several brands under one store so I don't need to spend hours strolling around the mall looking for each item you need. Anyway, back to my ootd, I usually hate wearing plunging tops so I was really surprised this swimsuit suited me well. It's also nice even without the skirt! Since it's black, it looks extra classy too. BMS.

H&M shorts

You know it's a nice swimsuit if it's from Moeva London. I don't need any sweet introduction for this brand because their bikinis speak for themselves. They sell luxury/designer swimwear that's absolutely amazing you wouldn't want to go take a dip in them hahaha but of course, you can. I got this purple bikini with a gold detail that looks like a necklace from afar. It suited my metallic shorts really well and it was a perfect get up if you want to just relax and have a mango shake by the shore. I'm also into big hats now that summer's here and can I just say, The SM Store has a lot of trendy beach hats! They have it in all colors too- tama sila, they've got it all for you! Haha. The last time I went to Pico De Loro was about two years ago and I'm happy to be back thanks to Sanuk! They invited a couple of people (probably just around 15) for their "A Space To Play" event showcasing Sanuk's latest creation. I'll tell you more about my overnight stay on my next post. Stay tuned!

Wow. My first fitness fashion post- I never thought the day would come! I've been a gym freak once, back in 2011 when I did a show for ABS-CBN and I wanted to lose weight and be fit at the same time. When the show ended, my healthy lifestyle stopped as well. Now, I'm trying to be a healthier me by eating properly and having a daily exercise (boxing and conditioning). I've only got one month left before Labor Day and like everybody else who's going to Boracay next month, you know the words: PANIC MODE! I really want to start being healthy again and it's not just for Labor Day, I want it to be my lifestyle forever. And like any other girl who loves clothes, I like wearing tees that inspire me to work out more. It's like when you buy new trainer shoes, you're more ready to work out because sayang, nabili mo na! Haha. I love all of Recovery Wear's inspiring work out tees- especially this one I'm wearing. Eat, sleep, work, train, repeat. This should be my motto! They say you're in the gym not to look good but to work out right? But hello, why choose to look dirty when you can still look awesome and be fit at the same time! Naks! Minus the hoodie, this can be a good outfit for a workout- plus if you want that extra sweat, wear a windbreaker jacket. BMS.

I love wearing casual clothes! I feel like I’m so free! My mom used to tell me it’s bad to wear heels all the time but I never listened to her because of my height insecurities. Now that I’m older though and have tons of errands and shoots everyday, I’m beginning to like wearing flats. I feel like I can do so many things when I’m in flats! I got this matching denim tote and flats from And Brand PH and I love how it mixed well with my entire look. I’ve never tried combining denim and camouflage together- they look surprisingly superb! When I know I’ll be out the whole day working, I make sure I bring a big bag with me, so I can put all my important things inside. I also make sure I’m inspired all the time, that’s why I like wearing this time capsule necklace from August 8. Everything that I love doing and that inspires me is in this little capsule- dressing up, music, traveling, etc. Every time I look at it, it makes me smile and continue working with a passion. You can have your own time capsule too and have it personalized based on your interests.

Also I just want to share with you guys my new discovery. Oftentimes I am asked where I find the clothes that I wear in all my posts- and the answer is that it really depends. Sometimes I find nice items in the mall, in a vintage shop but most of the time, I find them online. Recently, I stumbled upon a luxury website called Muchness. It’s for stylish people to find designer items at a discounted price- and when I say discount, I mean it. They have items that go down as low as 70% off! Check out these items I spotted on their website that’s a sure steal!

On Muchness, you can customize your own shopping homepage by following your favorite designer brands, which makes it easier to never miss when your favorite shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti goes on-sale. I love that they carry some of my favourite brands like Saint Laurent and Alexander Wang to name a few. I know it gets tricky to look like a million dollars but not spend a million dollars, so I hope you enjoy my shopping tip! For sure you’ll get to save a lot of money because of Muchness. Fun fact: the company headquartered in New York City has a Filipino-American on their executive team and he created a special early access code just for my readers. Click here and enjoy! BMS.
