In terms of the current trend, not really. I believe style is something very personal. What makes you look good, makes you feel good. To each his own poison.:)
do you have style influences?
The japanese. They're a race born with style.
what are your fave places to shop?
Favorite......hmmmm....internet, thrift shops, ukay2, basically anywhere I can get my hands on things i like to own.:)
what's the story of your tattoos?
My flies stand for nothing. They dont have a meaning or whatever, I just figured it would look good on me, so I got it. The ones on my arms symbolize the equated value between hardwork and successs.
do you think anyone can have tattoos?
It's anyone's guess I think. Some people look good with it, and some just dont. Depending on what the tatto design probably, but like I said, it's anyones guess. If they feel good having it, why not?
are you a trend maker or a follower? or does trend mean anything at all?
I do not feel i belong to both. Hahahaha. I just do not like looking like everybody else. I do not believe in trends, in terms of fashion and I do not like to follow or be followed. I think a trend is just there to represent the current generation. It's a fact of life, merely a rite of passage to young people. The necessity to belong gives birth to trends.
do people like what your wearing?
Hahahahaha. That i do not know for sure, but I do receive compliments from friends and I am thankful for that.:)
what's your favourite accessory? why?
Shoes. I know they're not accessories, but they're in a league of their own. They either make you look barbaric, or they make you sophisticated. Shoes have a way of telling others what kind of person you are and make for good bragging rights to others. Hahaha!
do you prefer brands or no-name goodies?
Both. I guess it all depends on what type of item youre looking to buy. There are just some items that call for an investment. Like shoes, sure the fakes are easier to buy, but in the long run, you're sacrificing quality on something you will use on a daily basis.
everytime i see you, i caught you in a different wardrobe. Of all the shows, what was your favourite?
Most favorite? Whenever i am home. No one gives a f*ck about what youre wearing. Hahahaha.

I just had to complete the whole bunch of me's. the designer, the mother, and the faerie. This time, I sprinkle happy thoughts, to inspire... and maybe make the world a little happier. :)

This is GAP's challenge to Polyvore fanatics - to create an outfit inspired by whatever we think we are born to do. A set must use at least two of items from GAP and should showcase their denim.
Instantly I thought I am born to be a mother - born to rock my boys. I have always felt that me and the boys are made to fit each other in a messy and soulful way. But then I realized I am "me" first before I became a someone to another being. And so... I had to make two sets for the contest. This is my first entry as a creative and a doodler - born to create and doodle away!
Hope I win! It's going to be a crazy show knowing that there are at least 1,111 entries (and counting) so far. View all entries here.

How do you keep smell?
That thought is from the movie "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer". There is an answer of course, go on and watch it.
It is a story of a man who has an extraordinary ability to smell EVERYTHING and cataloging each scent in his mind. His possessive attitude towards a certain scent brought him on a journey to finally capture and lock the smell of beauty and created the most exhilarating perfume ever.
What I love about the film's style is it's simplistic approach. Because I would have imagined special effects of smoke, colourful trails to capture the essence of the story which is mainly focused on smelling. But it didn't. There's no need really if you have the perfect casting. I adore Ben Whishaw's effortless performance, making him my new favourite "hero".
Here is the last narration of the movie. Moving and beautiful:
"There was only one thing the perfume could not do. It could not turn him into a person who could love and be loved like everyone else. So, to hell with it he thought. To hell with the world. With the perfume. With himself."
"Within no time, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille had disappeared from the face of the earth. When they had finished, they felt a virginal glow of happiness. For the first time in their lives, they believed they had done something purely out of love."

I got most of my taste in fashion from her - maybe because we rock the same boat. Way back in college I remember using her vintage hippie all-leather bag. Or at some days, I can always use her tops as long as it's not too big on me. She's the ultimate ukay-queen too. She can take a day off and spend it forever in the ukay stores in cebu. So there's no wonder I got the habit from her. You can't name an ukay store that she's never been to.
