Boots N' Bones

Got some of what I’m wearing from the recently concluded Bloggers United. I also call this look the “David Guison x Paul Jatayna” look because I got the boots from David and the bone necklace from Paul.

I want to give credit to my friend KC here. She is the only one who says yes to me whenever I DEMAND a shoot because no one really wants to take pictures of me. She is a travel and food blogger by the way. Maybe I look like food to her. She even calls me Bastilicious. Thank you for supporting my “becoming a full-fledged model” dream :) 

Please hype this on Lookbook.nu here.

Night Bazaar Blues

I am really not into accessories until I have realized that it can greatly enhance one’s outfit/look. Because of that I went to the night bazaar in Tutuban to look for them. My original plan was to buy connector rings but it was an epic fail. Got other stuff instead.

Found these necklaces on the same booth where I bought my bracelets the last time.

Buddha beads were Php10 each. The person in charged of selling the bracelets call them “anti-batak”. Haha.

Total damage was Php220. Will try to post more cheap finds!

Basti Goes to Bloggers United

Even if I have fever, it didn’t stop me too see and meet almost all of the most popular people in the blogging community. Arrived so early. I should be awarded most punctual. It feels like heaven in there because of so much clothes. Wished there were more stuff for men because David and Bjorn were the only ones who sell it. Maybe next time I’ll be a part of it already. Haha. Struck by shyness again, I actually need to bring my friend Mutya so that I can talk to the lady bloggers. All in all it was a great event and I can say that my LEAVE WITHOUT PAY was worth it (lol).

My first time to meet Bjorn Bedayo and he is so cool. Hoping I get to see him again.

David knows me already! Sorry for raiding your suitcase :)

Finally seen Paul’s bone collection. And I was surprised he knows my Twitter name. He also told me that he sees me on Lookbook and he will fan me. Yey!

Here comes mountains of girliness which I think made Mutya really happy.

Mutya with the super cute Patricia Prieto.

Now for the items that I got.

From Bjorn: The jacket and button-down are for Paolo who cannot make it to the event because he is in Cebu already. Mine are the accessories. I’m not a necktie guy but I purchased it because its Topman.

From David: I’m one of the lucky people who got one of David’s boots. Yey! This will be my first pair of boots. Hope I can give justice wearing it.

Also bought this nice shirt. It’s a perfect fit for me.

From Paul: Paul suggested to get the crossbone necklace because it suits me more than the others.

Paolo asked me to look for connector rings which I really don’t know what they look like at first. They were actually so cool when I saw them I also bought the same for myself. Will try to look for more of these in the night bazaar.

Lots of stickers! Will stick the green Status sticker on my office laptop.

PS: Can’t believe this is my 50th post already.

Topman/Topshop Re-Opening

Topman and Topshop have just re-opened its Robinsons Galleria branch. My friend Mutya and I were there to witness the event and of course, to shop. Failed to make it to the first 50 to line up to get 50% off on all items. So many people there including Divine Lee, Iza Calzado, Rey Ilagan, BJ Pascual, Pauline Prieto, China Cojuanco, Georgina Wilson, Borgy Manotoc, Isabelle Daza, David Guison, Phoemela Barranda, Paul Jatayna, Lexi Gancayco, and many more. So shy to approach anyone of them. Also met my blogger friend Randz Manucom. Saw a lot of great pieces that I want to have in my closet. Hope I get invited again on their next VIP sale.

Super long line in the fitting room.

Super long queue also on the cashier. David and Bianca were just in front of me.

After shopping, we got ourselves some milk tea at Chatime because of my food blogger friend KC’s good review on it and she was right!


Since I’m getting slimmer already, I rewarded myself with 2 pairs of skinny jeans. But I still have the biggest thighs in the world. Haha.

Thanks Topman and Garage Magazine for the freebies!

Sweater and Jeans (all from Topman), Shoes (Nike), Bag (Forever 21)

Next stop: Bloggers United! My leave got approved already. Yey!

Finally its official! I was supposed to do this yesterday but Cebu Pacific’s website was under maintenance. They told me to come back by 3am the next day and that’s what I did. Woke-up exactly 3am to book. So excited for this trip. I remember I went to Singapore last year on the same date. It’s kind of becoming like an annual thing for me. Watch out Lee Min Ho. You’ll gonna see the Philippine’s ambassador of BB Cream (lol).

Bloggers United

Can’t wait to go to this event on the 27th. Already filed my leave (hope it gets approved) so that I will be here. Bloggers should not miss the opportunity to be a part of this event because this is the best time to see and meet fellow bloggers. Praying that I still have the cash on that day so that I can purchase some of my favorite blogger’s preloved items (no credit cards). I know I’m not that popular but please do smile or talk to me when you see me.

An Invitation

Got an invite from my favorite clothing brand - Topman. It’s flagship store in Robinson’s Galleria will be re-opening on the 25th. A preview of their latest collection will be shown. Music and refreshments will also be served. Who’s going? Apparently, I will be with no company. Will just consider it as the best time to meet new people!
