Marni For H&M

Just two weeks after the Versace for H&M was released comes a new collaboration with the Italian fashion label, Marni.

"I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favourite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic, adding sporty utilitarian elements," says Castiglioni of her first high-street collection.

Marni is known for its "European-inflected bohemianism" that consists of colorful prints, unconventional silhouettes and bold accessories

From vivid colors to bold prints, Marni for H&M will also produce African inspired and/or simpler colour blocking pieces.

For men, the colours and fabrics are softened for a relaxed take on menswear staples that is truly Marni. The use of print is subtle, often  as a lining or as a contrast detail for shirts, the silhouette a modern and relaxed take on masculine classics.

The collection will be released on the 8th of March 2012 worldwide. Yes, that is 260 stores + online
The collection features clothing and accessories at H&M prices that is very affordable. Yay.

I thought that this announcement was too early since they just released their collaboration with Versace two weeks ago, but then I guess it is also good to look forward to something for next year.

Guilty Pleasure: De Ruijter's Hagelslag

Many of you might be wondering what hagelslag is when you read my recent tweets and/or posts. Hagelslag means sprinkles in Dutch. Obviously, my boyfriend was the one who introduced me to this and he is very guilty for making me so addicted to it.

Why is it addicting? First, it's really good. Like super. Especially the chocolate melk (milk) ones, they're just so sweet and really yummy in the tummy!

I'm not really a fan of bread, but because of hagelslag I eat bread on a daily basis. Either wheat or honey oatmeal of course. If you are not too conscious about your weight, then might as well try it with regular bread.  Click continue reading >>>

Kee - Moh - No

Okay so just got home 47 minutes ago and I just want to point that this was such an eventful day (November 26 since like its already 3:47am).  I just ate Mcdonalds (feeling guilty) so that's why I'm not sleeping yet - I have this weird theory that I should waste 3 hours of time before I sleep so I digest the food that I just ate. Jeroen think its stupid because I don't do anything... like "yeah you are awake but you're just in bed" Still. You know.

Anyway, my day started pretty good. I had a bad dream about this creepy looking man and almost stole my phone. Good thing, I woke up by actually making myself wake up. Yea I actually have that power to make myself wake up before something bad happens in my dreams. I love it. No nightmares. I could actually half control my dreams.

So I woke up early around 9:35 am. I always wake up that specific time. Again, weird.

I had brunch, watched Fresh Prince of Bel-Air then wasted my time again online. I got ready for an intern chat then went to SoFA to meet up with RAFAEL FALAFEL.

Poor baby was exhausted from his little trip cause he had midterms for styling class in Trinoma.

While waiting for some people... I evolved into a CAMWHORE. Click continue reading >>>

Pho With A Bullet

So yesterday afternoon I went out to Greenbelt to meet up with my old school Bryan Jim. He just moved here in Manila from Subic this year. We've actually talked about before how we should hang out in Manille since we're both here already and it would be awesome if we actually get to hang out in Manille for the first time! A couple months passed and we still haven't met up and we would actually see each other in Subic pa! So one moment yesterday I just had the urge to call him up and hang out with me. It tis bout time anyway.

We really had a good time talking and catching up with our Manille life. We went to Starbucks first then had my usual iced chai tea latte while he had some new stuff that I really don't remember what its called . Then after that, he craved for Vietnamese food and so I thought, let's go to Banana Leaf! But when we got there I realized that it was mostly Thai and didn't have Pho. The guy is crazy about Pho.

Good thing I remembered there was Pho Hoa in Greenbelt 1 so we went... and had one of the best dinners of my life. I love Vietnamese food and I am so excited to go back there! Click continue reading >>>

Yes! I finally got the photos from my last roll of film for ze Action Sampler camera. I love how the photos turned out though its been months... you can tell because my friend, Alex, has still her braces on in the photos. Haha!

Now I want another thing for Christmas, a 35mm film. Of course best if you buy the Lomography film, there's a shop in Greenbelt 5 that sells these and also in other shops that sell lomo cameras. I forgot the name of the shop though. And it costs Php800.

Oops I Did It Again?

Ciao dolls! I hope you all are having a good week so far because I know I am! This week started good, I kind of forgot what happened but I'm just feeling light and happy for the past three days.

Today, I already finished my skirt!

I call it my Forever 21 x Topshop inspired skirt! Remember when I bought the fabrics last last week? Well there. That's what I did.

It is not 100% perfect but I'm still een beetje proud of myself

After school, I went to this camera place so I can develop the film of my lomo that has been in the drawer for months! Haha. Finally had the time to actually do this! However, their machine was broken today so I have to get it tomorrow, I was kind of disappointed because I was really excited to see the photos that I took. 

I went inside SM Makati just to pass to get to the taxi stand because I was planning to go to Rockwell to look for hagelslag. When.... I saw Forever 21... 'Oh God', I thought.

I tried to stop myself but I just couldn't, I just had to go inside. OH MY GOODNESS, IT WAS HEAVEN. New stocks. Beautiful new stocks. Put the prettiest things inside my Forever 21 bag and went to the fitting room. I normally wear a medium but because of my weight loss, I am now a small. However, the sizes that I took from the racks were medium for some odd reason. When I tried them on, it was too big and unflattering. Then I just kind of didn't have that excitement anymore. So I put all the clothes back and went around again... then saw....

This KIMONO. Pattern making classmates, don't kill me for purchasing this. Yes, I KNOW we already learned how to do kimono sleeves but still!!! Hahaha I just have to have it! 

Ew whats that thing on my forehead

and this pink leather shorts with lining inside!

Very prettayyyy! ♥ 

 Now I feel better than ever! I am looking forward for an eventful weekend! And also my boyfriend is delaying my Versace for H&M package with hagelslags!!! I think I am more excited for the hagelslags than the clothes! Haha. When a lady craves, a lady CRAVES.

Oh by the way, I put up a password for the post below for security reasons.
If you wish to read it, please tweet / email / tumblr ask me ♥ 

Good night dolls x
