Dapper Days

November 25, 2014
This year's FATD's (Filipino American Thanksgiving Dinner) theme was "Dapper Days", so think 1950s! I had a lot of fun with this look. I was contemplating between the typical female outfit with a skirt/dress, or a more androgynous look. So of course I took the unconventional, more fun route! I had this look in my head, so when I put it together I was quite happy with how it turned out! Check out the rest of the blog for the full outfit (and endless Photo Booth selfies).

My ol' high school friends and I got together to see our friend's performance in one of the acts of an LGBTQ-themed show. His act was "Romeo and Jules", and yes, he was Romeo.

The whole show was wonderfully done and got my laughing the whole time. Despite the unusually small space, the uproarious laughter made me forget about the smaller audience and made me really appreciate live performance. Check out the rest of this post for how the night went!

Re:Make 2014

September 13, 2014
One summer's day, I checked my email and one message in particular caught my eye. I almost deleted it, but something about it drew me to read the whole message. It was about a free DIY/crafts convention event in San Francisco called Re:Make by the company Brit+Co., and did I say everything about it was free? So of course I had to go. Check out some of the things I crafted, as well as my incredible stops in SF after Re:Make!

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

 August 29, 2014
San Francisco, CA
A spontaneous and adventure-filled day well spent with an amazing and even more spontaneous friend. Traveling to new places is a dream, but discovering hidden gems in usual spots are even more exciting because it changes my previous outlook on that place. Due to my unconventional way of payment for a logo design, I had my friend spend a priceless day with me in the city instead of repaying me with money.

Check out our SF-ventures and where we gallivanted from morning 'til dusk.
