Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Hi guys, who loves to go to museums and historical places? Count me in!! I found a place for us. Las Casas is a great place for you to go. You’ll definitely enjoy the 18th century reconstructed mansions and wooden still houses view plus the sea side! Imagine yourself traveling to 18th century, its nostalgic!  It makes me wanna go back in time. The houses’ architectural design, the atmosphere and the beach makes the place perfect to relax and oh for photoshoot ofcourse! Prenup is a great example. You’ll learn something from your tour guide you probably haven’t heard from your history teacher or you know the history hearsays. 


“Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a 100-acre beach and mountainside heritage-inspired property. Home to almost forty original Spanish-Filipino colonial structures, the property showcases the vision of Jose Acuzar who collects, transplants and restores built heritage. Las Casas Filipinas is situated in Bagac, a small fishing village in the province of Bataan. Through the continuous restoration of built heritage, the migration and revival of traditional Filipino craftsmanship marks the significance of this architectural project. The workshops located in the property include stone carvers, wood carvers, terracotta sculptors, brick makers, painters, welders, etc. As part of Bellas Artes Projects’ mission, artists and audiences alike are encouraged to see the significance and discourse between contemporary art and heritage, and to explore ideas and reflections of their own.”

Refashioned: Polo Shirt to Bow top/Button down Skirt

Hi guys, how’s everyone? Fab as ever? I have been hooked to ruffles and bow lately,  thought I could make something like this (Picture below) out  of a thrifted Polo shirt.

Glad I find and bought this for less than a dollar at Paradise Thrift Store. 

This refashioned Polo shirt is one of my fave, perfectly fit for summer (getting ready for summer looks huh). So this is how it looks like (my version).

Did you like it? Cos I like it super! 

Refashioned: Denim Shorts to Mini Skirt

Hello guys, how’s everybody? I went thrift shopping last month bought several pieces for my projects (will be posting them one by one) and I got my eye on this denim shorts, I love it’s fringes though it’s twice my size I thought I could make a cutie mini skirt out of it.

 I tried not to cut the fringes on my first trial, looks good but kinda long. Here’s how it looks like.

And finally this (see picture below) when I decided to cut the fringes to make it a mini skirt worth called.

Sometimes you really have to cut the things that makes no sense no matter how you love it. Result is, I love it more!

What’s your denim story? 

My Slowfashion story! 

​Hello, I miss everyone! I know I haven’t posted in a while not that I have nothing to say or nothing to share God knows I have a lot and no matter how I want to update this page it never turned out the way I wanted. Maybe there is really something wrong with how I manage my time. Please advise! Anyway this post isn’t about time management it’s something I’ve been thinking these days.

I haven’t bought new clothes for months now (only thrifted) and I’ve been thinking of buying “some” ofcourse those that I just really need like office attires. I don’t know why I feel guilty, I mean slowfashion does not really mean you stop buying clothes there are a lot of eco-friendly fashion brands out there to choose from. My worry is we have things to consider in buying clothes like the price, style, fabric etc., store location, convenience for online shops and the list goes on. Do we really support slowfashion if we buy clothes from flea markets (tiange)? Ofcourse not, but we can’t stop people. And to be honest I also can’t help myself, it feels like I cheat everytime I check online clothing shops or whenever I go to mall and I want to buy. I mean come on what about those people who can’t afford sustainable brands? Like me for example. I love slowfashion and no matter what they say I will support it in my own little ways like repairing, refashioning, rewearing.

What’s your slowfashion story? I’d love to hear them. ♥ 
love,

DIY Bridal Shower

Hello guys, I haven’t posted in a while and I missed it. Been busy these past few days, we’ve been planning a simple DIY bridal shower for a sister from another mother. The pressure is real! We, my friends and I (we’re only four btw: Jelly-bride’s sister, Army-maid of honor Feb and I-bride’s maids) , didn’t have enought time to personally meet and do the planning. Well, what’s the use of messenger? Somehow it feels like a group project my role as a leader is to assign tasks, that’s what I’m good at I guess. I told them what we need to prepare, the things we should bring and all. If you’re also planning a surprise DIY bridal shower I’ll share you what we did as first timers. Note that I’m not giving advises or things to do, just ideas of the things we need to prepare.

Let’s start with Jelly the bride’s sister, she prepared almost everything from the drinks to confetti to finger foods. 

Next is Army the Maid of honor, glittery sash expertise. Although there was some unfortunate thing happened to the sash, she was able to alter it. Yey

Then Feb one of the bride’s maids prepared the Miss to Mrs and She letter ballons.

Finally me, I volunteered to prepare the backdrop, veil and cake. First time to organize a surprise and I could say it’s a job well done! Team work is the key. Here’s some pictures of the surprise bridal shower.
