Promenade 2018

Sorry, took me weeks after to post my daughter’s Prom pictures. Their Prom was held at Limketkai Luxe Hotel last February 9, 2018.

As mentioned in my previous post, I had a hard time looking for a nice dress for my daughter to wear. Their theme was about The Timeless Glamour of Vintage Hollywood so I was a bit busy deciphering what that dress was all about!

It was last December 2017 that my daughter and I took the time to look for a dress at a certain mall but to no avail. Actually, we found one but we didn’t get it right away because it was a bit expensive for a one night use only. And I wanted it to refer to her dad first before buying it. But he was actually convinced…

But then I happened to talk to my sister in law who knew of someone who owned a dress shop. The owner was offering a lower price and wanted us to personally go to her shop.

When we were there, my daughter was already attracted to this black dress. She fitted it and loved it right away. However, it was a bit sexy as the sides on the waistline were see-thru and the design on the chest part was sort of a peek-a-boo.

But the dress shop was willing to cover that area and they even agreed to my daughter’s other request, to make her slit not so high.

So, below was the over-all look of the dress. The sides were already covered with black cloth and the chest area was sewn and the slit was barely there to see.

Isn’t she lovely?

But I think it was just appropriate for a 14 year old girl to dress like this, not too revealing, as to maintain their youth and innocence.

Mommy and daughter moment

My daughter was given a role, wherein she received from the senior student the Symbol of Arts. My daughter by the way is a Junior student so the symbol was entrusted to her. By next year, she will turn it over to another student.

Before I forget, the dress was from Glamorous Bride located at Kalambaguhan-Capistrano St. Visit their place anytime should you want to rent or buy or have them sewn a new dress for you.

Make-up Transformation

My eldest daughter, Chloe, recently had their school prom at Limketkai Luxe Hotel. Being a Grade 9 or Junior student, it was her first time to join. She just transferred in her new school this school year so everything was really new to her.

The theme of their prom was Vintage Hollywood. So, prior to their prom, I was busy looking for a nice dress for her to wear then looked for a make-up artist and hairstylist. It was a good thing I befriended some of the moms at my youngest daughter’s school, who made some recommendations of who and where to look.

I ended up booking an appointment with Ms. Yen Bastareche of Bellemoda. I almost didn’t get an appointment because I scheduled it the last minute. Thankfully, she accommodated us, and even let us come earlier on the said day because she was already vacant.

I was there watching how my daughter’s hair and makeup was made and I was so amazed with the transformation. I thought it was impossible to achieve the look, especially for the hair part coz my daughter’s hair was just like mine, thick and stubborn, hehe.

Anyway, see below some pics I took on Chloe. I would definitely go to Bellemoda again should there be another special occasion that we are going to attend.

*Be making another blog post about her dress after this 😉

The Unicorns in Us

We are the Unicorns 😀

Here are some of our Mommy-and-daughters bonding moment. We were so bored once that we decided to visit one of Cagayan de Oro’s newly opened cafe, Sugar Rush Dream Café located in Vamenta, Carmen. It’s a unique kind of café coz you can wear their costume while dining in there. They have plenty of stuffed toys that can be played by kids and adults who are kids at heart 😀

My daughters, especially my youngest, liked the place very much. My eldest who was at first shy to wear a costume, finally let her goofy side out. I took plenty of pictures of them but will only post their formal or serious ones. I will just keep their funny pics for myself to laugh when I’m feeling lonely, hehe. See below their pictures:

It’s Merry December!

One of my favorite looks this December 🙂 This was taken at S & R while I was covering an event. It was so nice seeing these big cuddly teddy-bears beside a Christmas tree and I could not resist to have a selfie with them, hehe.

In case you asked, my blouse is from Uniqlo, my ripped jeans is from H & M, my shoes was borrowed from my daughter, lol.

I just love Christmas…don’t you? 😉

Modeling in Gucci-inspired dress

My 14 year old daughter’s modeling stint at Gil Macaibay earlier this year. She donned a Gucci-inspired high-end fashion in black and white dress. She definitely slayed in this picture. She just didn’t pursue modeling coz she’s busy at school. She just attended workshop to help her with her posture. But now, she slouch so much again, lol.

But still hoping she will join again next year even just for fun coz we love watching her walk on the stage.

Blogger Look (“,)

Doing a blogger-look pose is so difficult for me to achieve. And I admire people from doing it naturally. I don’t know if this picture was able to achieve it or not, lol. This was during a Uniqlo event. I was there to cover the activity but before the program began, I did some snapshots of myself, thanks to my fellow blogger friends xoxo

Oh, clothes were all mine. I love my Chinese-blouse but this was old already but still well-kept 🙂
