green minded.

The Cambridge Satchels finally arrived at Schu. Got mine yesterday and took it for a spin the very next day.

 Sheer top and denim shorts from Tiendesitas bazaar

13-inch green Cambridge Satchel and Toms in silver glitter

I love my new baby! The color! The stitching! The smell! Aaaaah. Now I'm thinking of ordering one of those flouros, too. Hmmmm. 

Anyhoo, dropped by Fully Booked (as always) because I wanted to buy another book but I had to stop myself credit card bill will arrive this week! Afraid. Guess who's not eating in the next 5 days? Mwahahaha. Happy Sunday, everyone! :)

longest graduation ever.

I accompanied the BF to Pampanga to attend his cousin's graduation. The last graduation I attended from start to finish was my very own, and that was 6 years ago. I kind of anticipated the long hours but man, this particular ceremony took 5 hours to finish! And get this, there were only 179 students! Oh my gulay. So okay, since I rarely talk about what I'm wearing (and I think I should start doing that), let me just show you my watching-graduation outfit. Haha.

Shades from Aldo Accessories. Top from Oxygen. Cropped pants from Space. Bag from Banana Taipei. Shoes from Anthology.

"Opulence" by Jeremy Scott for Swatch

"Blessed" cuff from DLSU Bazaar. Studded cuff from Forever 21.
I wear these two together all the time. Just a reminder that even if shit happens, I am still lucky.

I am so into this whole fabric loafers thingamajig. So comfy and hip!

Now, let me share a funny conversation:
M: Lagi mo suot yan ah, tignan mo madumi na yung isa.
K: Ano ka ba, hindi dumi yan, style niya yun.
M: Mas dark kaya yung isa!
K: Oo nga, ganun talaga kasi..

...alternate oh!

Haaay, boys and fashion.

Anyway, after the mass, we headed by the fountain and brought out our anti-boredom gear.

Book for me

iPad for him

Sunset came and it was too dark to read. Then his iPad run out of battery. Boohoo. We got hungry, so we went out to check the food cart just outside the school gate.

This guy sells...

Breaded ala quek-quek style. Sarap!

Oh by the way, the graduation ended at 10PM. Ibang klase, diba? Yun lang. BOW.

leather and fiction.

Two weeks ago, I felt the urge to read again. I've been too swamped with work lately and I kind of wanted to get away from anything fashion/magazine/work-related. So I went to Fully Booked and bought this:

I don't know anything about this book, aside from the fact that it's one of the store's best sellers. No time to dilly-dally since the store was about to close so I went straight to the cashier. Spent a little time looking through the trinkets by the counter and a familiar face caught my eye:

Aklat Eklat's leather book jackets.

I was with my bff Aai when we first saw this at the Rockwell bazaar about 2 years ago. She bought one and I bought one as a Christmas gift for our friend, J. Didn't have the budget to get one for myself at that time and I kind of forgot about it already because again, I haven't read a decent book for a quite a while. My heart skipped a beat when I saw it again. Love!

I have this thing about good quality leather. The smell alone can make me giddy. I totally admire the craftsmanship that goes along with leather goods. It's just so... fascinating. I'm really not particular with brands. Basta quality leather, solb na ko. Now look at my pretty book!

Ganda lang.

And then I brought out this thingy I got from Saizen a long time ago:

What is this thing, you ask?

You use it for this!

Aminin mo, useful siya.

As of today, I'm on Chapter 15 and enjoying every single page with my leather-smelling book. Simple pleasures that I deserve.

Fun Find: Sucker Stand

Do you love watching videos in your iTouch? Well, you'll prolly consider this as heaven sent!

The Sucker Stand

Looks like a toilet plunger, yes?

Just press it at the back...

Make it stand...

And voila!
Ain't that cool or what?!
