Scarfed Again: Light and Breezy

Another example of using one's scarf as a tent. I just placed it over my hat and voila! I love this scarf especially because it's so light and moves beautifully with the wind.

Have a lovely Friday!

Refreshed: Mint and Neutrals

Here's a little mid-week inspiration to help us get bright and perky despite this gloomy weather we've been having. How about a refreshing dash of mint?

Scarves in the Desert: Weird or Not?

When the sun is beating down on you and you're not quite convinced to don long-sleeved shirts... aside from slathering sunblock, why not use a scarf as your own personal tent?

Stand-Out in the Desert: Joanne

Having been deprived of color in my wardrobe for at least a hundred days, I turned to my bus-mate and friend Joanne for some color and print inspiration.

Can you count the number of patterns she has on?

Scorching Hot: What do you wear in Egypt?

Hello from the scorching sands of Egypt! While packing for our Holy Land trip, I was mapping out my outfits and was pretty sure I didn't want to wear jeans in Egypt because they tend to be heavy, stiffer, and close-cut to the body. So what do I wear?

A light-colored top and loose pants! I had limited options to bring along the trip, because remember, I could only work with black, white, and neutrals like cream, gray, and navy. Good thing I found these cute printed harem pants at 168 Mall for a steal at P180! :)

Crisp and Fresh: What do you do after a long flight?

In my previous post, I showed how I survive a long flight with comfortable clothes and a trusty scarf that I can wear several ways. How do you keep fresh after the trip when you don't have time to drop by the hotel before starting off your itinerary upon arrival?

If you're like me, you'd probably brush your teeth and wash your face. I made sure I did, especially as I seem to eat every two or three hours; I even woke up in near-darkness on the plane just because I smelled instant noodles cooking. Haha! I also pulled my hair back to keep my scalp from getting too oily.

BUT if you're a forward-thinking genius Gigi, you would've already packed a second set of clothes (and accessories!!!) to a) smell freshly-showered, compared to your 180 other companions on tour. Hehe. b) adapt to the new climate, and c) look great in photos.

Good job, Gigi! Unfortunately, I didn't get to take a photo of her travel clothes. She simply surprised everyone when she suddenly appeared at the baggage carousel all fresh, pretty, and perky in her new outfit :)

4-Way Scarf: What do you wear on a long flight?

This is the moment I've been waiting for -- to blog about the trip that changed my life! I usually learn a lot when I travel, but when one of my best friends Kim asked me to go on the Holy Land Bible Study Tour this year, I had no idea how amazing this experience would be. I had just left my three-year stint as a brand manager at the end of March and was looking forward to the two weeks we'd have this April-May when I could rest, recharge, and spend time -- quality time -- with God. I was really excited to have daily devotionals at 8 AM!

The first leg of our trip was in Egypt, with a stop-over in Dubai, and I wanted to wear something that allowed me to move comfortably throughout the long flight. I also get chilled easily, but didn't want to sweat at the airport (nor in the desert!) so I settled on a thin, blousy shirt that was long enough for me to wear with leggings -- the closest thing to pajamas. And although I had a light jacket in my hand carry bag, I settled on a scarf to keep me appropriately warm.

Scarf style # 1: Over the neck. Simple enough, right? This leopard print is one of two scarves I brought on my trip. I decided to pack light and just be creative with what I have.

Sea Foam Green: How do you wear it?

Alright, I admit, I've been remiss in my blogging duties! Not because I have nothing to share, because I do -- the abundance of God's blessings has kept me occupied since I came back from a two-week Holy Land tour last May (*gasp* It's now July, can you believe it?! Half the year's gone already!)

Okay, I'll stop myself from rambling on and on and move the discussion what I've been wearing! ;p

I'm so happy I finally get to put on this happy-colored knit from H&M. Following our grandma's passing last March, our family observed a black-and-white wardrobe for a hundred days, with a few appearances of navy and cream. Not to make her death a trivial matter, but we who know Ama (that's what we call our grandma) know that she's now in heaven with her Maker, dancing and singing away, and she wouldn't want us to go around moping! Just as well too, as I've got a pile of brights and coloreds waiting to make their debut!

Tangled: A Hair Story

Have you ever watched Disney's Tangled? It's the story of Rapunzel who had magical, life-giving hair. Contrary to the fairy tale, hair is actually made up of dead cells, and because of its weight, I've never grown my hair past my rib cage.

Good thing there's Tokyo Posh, the one-stop shop for hair extensions, clip-ons, half-wigs and more! You can literally change your hair every day depending on your mood! :) I visited my friend Denise in her Rockwell branch, and she happily offered to make my hair longer for the afternoon. This is what a half pony looks like:
