I'd like to invite everyone for the new photo shoot session with my friend Caloi. He's a great photographer I assure you. I've known him for years and I've been spying his beautiful shots in his Multiply gallery. I fell in love with his art and his talent so when I got the chance to finally meet him personally I felt so happy. I sponsored shirts and dresses for his female and male models in his Die Another Day/ Self-strobing photo shoot. I won't keep you waiting. Here are the details to his latest photo session:

ve always wanted to learn the basics of making beautiful dresses and clothes. I've enrolled in a modeling workshop before and stopped modeling to finish my studies first. In connection with these, I've always wanted to learn all the proper techniques in applying make up. Thus, I wanted to look good and learning these skills can not only make me look good but will also be an investment for me in doing sidelines for extra cash.
As I visited a popular site, I learned that School of Fashion and the Arts (SoFA) is conducting their Saturday classes since the first weeks of February but they will also have second batches on March. As much as I wanted to enroll, since Saturday classes are the best time for me to go to workshops like these, I can't afford the prices as of the moment. Hahaha I'm saving for something techie and (yes!) expensive. So for the benefit of my readers who would want and can afford these workshops here you go:

Today, I'd like to share a true red blood shoe story. It was a very embarrassing moment for me and I don't want to remember that ever again! But because I'm joining a contest by The Red Shoes, I'll tell you what happened.
Aside from diamonds, I consider shoes as one of a woman's best friend. It's something that expresses your thought, mood or your own view of fashion. I remember one line in a Korean Novela (Boys Over Flower) about shoes. It was a line delivered by Shou Jin (I hope I spell it right), who was a model in the story. She said:
Good shoes can take you to good places.
And of course, I believe that. Different occasions call for different types of clothes and of course different shoes. In line with this, I say:
Bad shoes take you to bad places and bad moments.
It was a bright sunny afternoon during my senior year in college. Of course, I love wearing high-heeled shoes. It makes me tall and enhances my posture and adds some confidence to me. Since I'm always running here and there, taking care of all my subject requirements and running my organization, I never imagined that something bad, and yes I'd like to emphasize that it was really bad.
As I was running through different classrooms for different subjects and meetings, my red shoe just decided to give up on me. My feet are narrow so I guess it has to do with all the running I did for the past 6 months. It was super broken! I'm looking for someone I know, especially my male friends, to run an errand for me. But they all have their classes that time. So I decided to go to 7 eleven to buy slippers. As I was walking and pushing my shoe on the other side, it just got worse! The heels just gave up and the shoe is screaming like "just let me go!" Okay! Emo moment for my shoe and guess what? I walked with one high-heeled shoe on my right foot and barefooted on the other side. So it was really embarrassing!
After that, I make sure I have slippers in my bag so that the next time it happen, haha I'm super prepared!

During the 21st Philippine Advertising Congress entitled Perspectives at Subic I got curious to one of the booths in the area. I know I haven't visited any footwear store for years now (I know that sounds kinda crazy) because my mom use to shop for me nowadays even for the clothes. So I noticed this cute flip flops. At first I thought it was just the usual flip flop and the person wearing it just wears a knee-high socks with it. And after a few days,I realized I was wrong.
Flip flops are really in demand right now. With Havaianas, Banana Peel and other brands around you'll see that people are really in the flip flops craze. I, myself, love to wear them! It's very comfy and you can easily go out shopping or mall-strolling wearing them. It gives you a very relaxed and comfortable aura.
