What a beautiful day! I hope you guys are enjoying my blog’s latest look. I finally decided to move on to a bolder look this time. I’m currently working on a header so this will do for now. Feel free to leave comments! Anyway, the blogging must go on.
Earlier that day at school, we had our batch photo taken for our annuale. Just a few more months and I’ll finally be graduating! So after that photoshoot, I spent the rest of the day with Jacob at The Fort and Greenbelt. It was nothing short of an amazing day.

COPPER. Today, Jacob and I headed to SM Aura because it was open to the public that day and we kinda failed to attend the night before. Anymoo, turns out, it wasn’t such a good idea. As you enter the building, instead of admiring how great the design was, how many international new boutiques there are, people are rubbing elbows with you, looking at you from head to toe, not having a place to sit and everything else you could have expected at a mall opening. :| Haha. Nevertheless, I got so excited that Suiteblanco is in Manila now! OMG. I would’ve drained all my cash if I hadn’t controlled myself (unlike my sister who went crazy because it was her favorite store, Blanco from Spain)
I’d wait around a couple more weeks for stores to open and for people to less likely visit because it’s not your usual family mall. It’s kind of like Rockwell with an SM department store attached to it and a foodcourt ..and a beautiful roofdeck.
Speaking of roofdeck, Jacob and I decided to take outfit shots there. But it was crazy because there were just too many people walking around, standing around, sitting. Anyway, yes, I recommend visiting SM Aura but don’t expect a comfortable, relaxing experience.

Make Your Own Havaianas 2013
It was incredibly exciting as Havaianas launched MYOH 2013. You can feel the excitement as you enter the Rockwell tent because of the colors, the artistic installations, the crowd, and awesome sound by Callum David. Not to mention all the food, drinks and desserts, I went crazy for the cupcakes! Ok fine, maybe the wine too!
Who else better to bring to the event than my summer buddy and event lover, Jacob! I grabbed some photos from his blog. Check out his Tumblr here for more photos!
This year, Havaianas proudly introduces its collaboration with Filipino illustrator, Dan Matutina for the first MYOH glow-in-the-dark commemorative pair! Check out his galactic design that comes in a carbon blue sole and spacemen with space markers connecting stars to form images. Brilliant design!
Soon, the making of Havaianas began! It’s always awesome to have something personalized! You can too starting this May 2 until May 5 at the Rockwell Tent!
Here’s mine being done! I went with a slim design. I wanted a cute base color and gold strap. Lastly, I added gold ribbon pins for some details.
Ta-da! What do you think? Thank you Jhaun for being my lovely assembler!
I also brought my sister to the event because she loves Havaianas! Check out her blog here!
Loads of celebrities and icons graced the event. I just didn’t get to take photos of them as clear as this one of Brent Javier. Nice cap!
Here’s a snapshot of Jacob and I being interviwed during the event! Thank you Havaianas for inviting me! Congrats on having a successful event! I urge everyone to make their own Havaianas this May 2-5 at the Rockwell tent! Check out and follow my Instagram for more photos and updates!
