It was an adventure visiting New York early this year as I intentionally missed the crazy crowds of New York Fashion Week. As much as I enjoyed visiting NYFW last year (click for my NYFW blog post), I wanted to explore the city alone for a change. It was late February, and I was contemplating on "how cold is too cold" while packing for the Manhattan winter season. It was my first time visiting the city during the winter months, and if I had a dollar for every time I asked myself," What should I wear?" I'd be rich enough to buy myself a new wardrobe for this entire trip!
Needless to say, I got the shivers while I was bearing the cold winds and icy rain during the first few days...but I quickly learned a lot of the locals' NYC style. With the amount of time I was waiting at subway stations and crossing busy intersections, I was taking mental notes of the outfits that differentiated the true New Yorker from the tourist. All the key trends and styles in NYC that want to know are here for me to spill as you click through and shop all the featured items!

Although Valentine's Day may make people buy candy, jewelry, and luxury cars, I'm livingggg for all the pink and red fashion items that hit the stores just for the holiday. The feeling of celebrating someone special this time of year makes me want to dress my best. As a single lady (cue Beyonce), I make it a priority to take care of myself this month and enjoy the time I spend with my close friends.
Galentine's Day has become a special occasion that I look forward each year because I realize how important it is to really cherish the friendships I've made. Blogging has become this really weird circumstance where I meet new people all the time, so forming a tight bond with someone who understands and supports me is something I don't take for granted. In fact, it inspires me to become a better person everyday. For everyone out there who has a great group of gal pals, celebrate your friendship and make the best of the holiday by dressing up! I'm sharing with you some of my favorite Galentine's Day fashion trends that are perfect for the occasion:

When it comes to cold climates and outdoor activities, I usually get into a frenzy with my wardrobe and the overwhelming emotions about what I should wear. "Is this warm enough?" "Is this too trendy to wear for a hike?" "Would I stick out as a tourist wearing this?" are some of the common questions that I ask myself when I was packing for my birthday trip to Denver.
It's true that living comfortably in the South has made me overlook the necessities of winter clothing and the idea of packing light felt close to impossible. Nonetheless, I always try to stay true to my style, and I ended up really surprising myself with how much I enjoyed packing my outfits for Colorado. For those of you who want some outfit inspirations, keep on reading about how I've managed to travel around Denver in style!
Early this year, I was able to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing for the Houston Live Exhibition for the Super Bowl Festival, a 10-day downtown fest that leads up to Super Bowl Sunday. Although I mostly share my travel and fashion endeavors on this blog, what most people may not know is that I grew up performing music. I was a "natural" at karaoke when I was three years old, and it grew my passion for singing. Like most Filipino parties, I'm that girl who never stopped singing "My Heart Will Go On" or "The Greatest Love of All." Singing eventually lead me to pursue the arts seriously as I learned piano, guitar, ukulele, and earned a degree in music. You can read more about my story at The Lasso here.
So the real subject matter that everyone asks, "What was it like?" And to tell you the truth, it was incredibly thrilling, nerve-wrecking, beautiful, wild, brief, and wonderful all at once.
February has finally arrived this year, and love is in the air now that Valentine's Day is coming up! Although I will most likely celebrate it by spending time with my friends, I am so excited to dress for the holiday by wearing lots of floral print, reds, pinks, and heart shaped fashion pieces! When I celebrated Galentine's Day with Casey from http://completelycasey.com and Silvia from http://lovelysilvia.com, my fellow Houston blogger friends, early this month, we decided to celebrate it in style with a feast full of treats! Because not only do bloggers love to dress up for any occasion, we also love to eat cute shape desserts- especially for Valentine's Day! Since a few of my friends were interested in how I made my flower crown featured in my last post here, I will be sharing with you how I DIY'd my flower crown as well as an additional treat recipe that is perfect for a Galentine's Day party. Let's begin:

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! Every year, I feel so differently about this holiday. As a kid, I looked forward to the infinite amount of baked sweets and wrapped presents. I loved how Christmas, more so than any other holiday, brought spirit and joy to everyone around the world. When I became a teenager, Christmas started to feel so jaded as I discovered the hardships life brought me. Although I loved how it brought happiness to others, the holidays didn't fix the insecurities and problems that I felt about myself. It took time to realize that Christmas, or the holiday season for that matter, wasn't about feeling Hallmark-happy all the time. Now, as an adult, I've learned to hold onto the memories and the spirit of Christmas, because having a holiday that brings people you love closer is a rarity. One, that I cherish now that life is continuously unpredictable in many ways.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, so of course we have to dress for the occasion! I teamed up with my ride or die photographer, Irene Santos, for this three-part fashion holiday series where I share a different outfit each week until the new year! Working with her on this collaboration was so much fun, that I'm so excited to finally feature it! This week, I'm showcasing an outfit that is Christmas chic with the bright, funky red and green fashion pieces. I love this unique look, and here's how I achieve it:
