FASHION: Indie Green Culture

I'm beginning to feel the Summer Heat in Las Vegas and I am totally loving it! Ohhh yes, I'd rather have the heat than the cold! The pool parties are beginning and I can't wait to go to one!

Most of the outfits I brought with me from the Philippines are winter outfits. So, I'm slowly building my summer wardrobe to beat the heat. Lucky for me, I was sent this Hippie Ensemble from Indie Green Culture to start my summer wardrobe! Indie Green Culture is a business based in Manila. Phoebe is the woman behind this business, who started her humble beginnings making her AMAZING handcrafted dreamcatchers and hippie inspired clothing. I was in awe when I opened the package from her. Her craft is really a work of art and I feel honored to wear her pieces as each of them is obviously a labor of love.

In this post, I am wearing a tie dye top, dreamcatcher earrings and a hairpiece, all from Iindie Green Culture. Take a look at this beautiful pieces and be inspired by Phoebes amazing craft! 

I know you can't wait to get your own dreamcatchers and hippie inspired pieces from Phoebe!
Here are her details for you... Order now! =)

FASHION: Tmart.com

Have you heard of the latest online shopping site today? I am talking about TMART or www.tmart.com! I was so psyched when I was contacted by Tmart to do this collaboration! Browsing their site is such a joy for me and i'm sure for anyone who loves online shopping. Why? Because they seem to have everything! From Fashion & Beauty items, to Electronics, Toys, Clothes and so many more!

Tmart.com caters WORLDWIDE. So whatever it is that you want to buy, wherever you are in the world, Tmart assures the quickest way possible to deliver your purchases. From what I understand, they ship out their goods depending on the item your ordered or where you are having the item delivered. For this collaboration with Tmart, I chose the blonde hair extensions and the beautiful hair accessory that I am using in the pictures in this post. The way they detail their merchandise in their photos and description is so exact that you know exactly what you are getting. I am absolutely happy with my hair extensions because even if they have so many hair extensions on their site, I could easily choose which one would match my hair color! My first package, the hair accessory, which was shipped from their USA dispatch office, arrived to my location in Las Vegas, Nevada in a matter of three days. My second package, which contained the hair extensions, were being shipped from China. I was surprised how fast their shipping was as it arrived in less than two weeks! I was so happy with the merchandise! Exactly as described on the website and hassle free!

In addition to the many choices on tmart.com, you will be surprised at how affordable the items are too. Choosing and paying is such a breeze as their website is so easy to navigate. Just create an account, and get ready to shop away! There are so many ways to pay as well. Via Credit Cards, Paypal, etc. Here is a photo of how their website looks like:

Here is the hair extensions: BEFORE photos of me without the extensions, and AFTER photos with the extensions so you can see the difference!

Super cool right? And I looove the quality! Really does look like my own hair! I wore these extension everyday for the first week I got them and no one even noticed they were extensions. My friends were surprised when I took them off!

FASHION: Friday Night

Friday Night in Vegas! I always look forward to Friday Night as it is my chance to dress up a little bit and hang out in a nice club or hotel. The weather has been warmer and so this is my chance to show a bit more skin. My arms and legs have not seen the light of day in months as I have been covering up because of the windy cold days in the past weeks.

I love this dress from Tan Gan which I have had in my closet for a year already and I want to keep it as long as it looks good! It is a sexy low back but classy even if it shows a lot of skin. I prefer low backs than showing a low cleavage as this is just more my style. It also puts pressure on me to make sure that I keep my back and arms toned!

I am wearing my hair in an entirely different way just to try a new look. I don't want to let go of my platinum blonde and blue hair just yet so I am experimenting with different ways to wear it.

I cannot wear high heels the way I used to anymore though. I remember my early 20 something days when I could trot around in my five inch heels and survive an entire night of clubbing. It did not matter if my friends and I stayed until the wee hours of the morning... I was good in my five inch heels! Lately though, three hours or less is enough for me. As much as I love wearing heels, I have been searching for nice wedges and flats that could look equally as nice as heels. This pair of flats I'm wearing is one of my favorites as it is very comfortable and ultra sexy! I have been an avid collector of jelly shoes as I love the comfort and look that they give and I am lucky to always be provided with these beautiful pairs from one of my favorite sponsors, JBE Scents and Bubbles. To check out other styles they have, just go to their facebook page here or visit their instagram page, @jbescentsandbubbles.

AT WORK: Mt. Pinatubo Trek + Giov & Kathy's Prenup Shoot Adventure

Giov and Kathy are one of those friends who are close to my heart. I have known Giov since I was a kid and as a doctor, he has always been there for my son's needs. I met Kathy later and instantly loved her warm personality. So when they asked me to be a part of their prenuptial shoot last year... I could not say no! We went on an awesome adventure trek to the crater of Mount Pinatubo, shooting their very unique and fashionable prenup shoot donning jewelry from my line, OLEIC, plus fabulous gowns from top designers Veejay Floresca and Martin Bautista shot by well known Photographer, Ian Santillan. I am writing this a year after to celebrate Giov and Kathy's first wedding anniversary! Their photos are so blog worthy and I am sure you will be stunned by the breathtaking views and fabulous photos of this good looking doctor couple.

We started our day at 3am. Giov and Kathy picked me up at my house and we convoyed with Ian to the area where we would start our 3 hour ride on 4 x 4's and our trek to the Mt. Pinatubo Crater. I was still jetlagged since I just arrived from my US trip the day before but the adrenalin was certainly there as I was so excited for this experience. I had a backpack full of my makeup and styling materials and Giov and Kathy had bags of food, refreshments and changes of clothes packed. All our makeup, styling and changes were done at the back of the 4x4's or behind large blankets that we brought. Certainly not one of the easiest things to do, we really roughed it and we got hungry, extremely thirsty and dehydrated... but I guess that's what made it extra fun! And the company was so much fun to be with. We were goofing around and enjoying the one of a kind experience!

While I do Kathy's makeup, Ian and Giov are busy putting on their sunscreen! How manly! =P
A moment with the Aeta children... I love them!
After hours of a bumpy ride on the 4 x 4's our trekking starts here!

Trekking... 10 more minutes to the crater...
And we finally arrive at the crater!

So beautifully jumpshot worthy!!!

And now for Giov and Kathy's breathtaking photos....






So absolutely breathtaking right? Kudos to the amazing photography of Mr. Ian Santillan as well! This photoshoot had the right mix of everything! I am thankful that Giov and Kathy chose me to style and do the makeup for their prenup because the experience was indeed amazing!

Now a year after, they are awaiting the arrival of their first born... maybe when their little one arrives, it'll be time for another photoshoot, this time for their new family of three! Congratulations Giov and Kathy!
