Female Dog

 thesis bitch 2

A gayer version of my Tumblr post.

I’m extremely sorry for the profanity (I vowed to never utter any on my blog) but I don’t think I could have put it more eloquently. Let’s put it this way, my arm is about to fall off from being being glued to my computer mouse all day, and I am still nowhere near done.

On the other hand, this is the first time I’ve attempted to use cutouts for graphic designing, and I’m quite happy with the results of my 10-minute experiment. I got the PSD cutout of the dog from Viva La Manika, thank you! :)

I should probably rest this arm of mine now.

Vertigo

All work and no play… just isn’t in  my vocabulary.

Last night, I took a break from thesis work to attend Vertigo, a benefit party organized by  the Medical Alliance Rendering Service to Fellowmen of the PLM College of Medicine. It was at Palacio de Maynila, and it became sort of a joint celebration of Faye’s and Jaja’s 21st birthdays. Darn these kids for being younger than me. I’ve only just realized that I’m turning 22 this year! Fark.

Sadly, none of us managed to bring a camera to capture the night’s moments. Blame it on laziness and on wishful thinking that someone else would bring one along. The best we could do was have our photos taken at the photo booth.

I tried channeling a twenties girl vibe by wearing a lacy black thigh length dress and pearls, but wore fishnets in an attempt to look more trendy and edgy. To fulfill my incessant need to stick out like a sore thumb in every possible occasion, I wore this huge flower on my head for effect (bought at the Forever 21 sale at a buy 1 take 1 promo!).

I Dream of Lace

IMGP0006IMGP00072

I just started this really simple DIY project. Before you all go thinking how I can possibly still be thinking of clothes at a time like this, I need to say that I plan to wear this for my thesis deliberations (provided the outcome is good enough) so no one can really say this isn’t thesis related, tee hee. XP

I am aching for thesis to be over. There are so many other things that I am itching to do, things that don’t involve me having to stay up at ungodly hours and still not be able to meet the deadlines that I set for the day. Things that don’t make me feel as helpless or as inadequate.

One of those things: TOTALLY REDO MY WORDPRESS THEME. I am getting sick of this layout, especially the header that I’m just finding really atrocious as of late.

On the Brink

This is by no means a legitimate blog entry, but I figured I would upload it anyway for the hell of it. I’ve  done nothing much else but stare at AutoCAD and Sketchup workspace, that even the simple joys of MS Paint was a welcome stress reliever . Add two mouse controllers hooked up to a single computer and Lando and I were able to steal away a few precious moments to play mouse pointer tug of war.

And if anyone else is confused, that bloody thing on me is supposedly an alien coming out of my belly.

YES KILL ME NOW PLEASE. DYING OF TIREDNESS.

Irregular Choice

I am more burnt out than I thought was ever possible, and there’s nothing like lusting over footwear to put me in a better mood.

I stumbled across this store online called Irregular Choice a few days back, and they have some of the most amazing shoes ever. Their designs are exploding in prints and color, in combinations I never thought I would see on a shoe! The store also sells clothing, accessories, and has a men’s section too!

Recapture your freedom which eloped with your youth’’, says Dan Sullivan, the creator and designer of Irregular Choice shoes.

Here are some of my favorites from their online store.

I’m normally not a fan of heels but I would wear them every single day if I had a few pairs of these! Too bad the brand is only available in the UK and US, so they’re horribly expensive, even more so when you add delivery charges. *sobs in a corner*

But mark my words, I vow to have my own pair someday. But for now, I go back to thesis work! Ciao! Smile

The Final Stretch

KEEP CALM

It’s less than a month before our final thesis submission, and I still have shitloads of work to do. At first I thought I’ve already finished plenty, but after some checklist making and schedule planning, now I don’t think I’ve done nearly enough.

It saddens me that my lack of blogging is reducing the status of my blog to an even more dire one than it originally was, but it can’t be helped. I NEED TO GRADUATE.

Feb 11 – Final Submission ( DAY OF DEATH)

Feb 23 – Final Defense ( DAY OF FUNERAL)

Mark your calendars, everybody. Make sure not to wear black.

Got A Secret, Can You Keep It?

I used up the remainder of my Christmas money today.  And you know what that means.

It means today’s post is another photo dump that does nothing but further fuel my growing addiction to material objects!

HAUL: Beige + Floral Oxfords from Tonic @ The Ramp | White Shorts from Jellybean | French Tip Nail Polish in White from Etude House | Off-White Lace from Carolina’s Lace Shop | Black Peeptoe Stilettos from The Trunk Show | Patterned Fishnet Stockings from The Trunk Show

The Ramp is such a haven for good and fashionable buys, both for shoes and clothes. I’ve bought a few pairs from the store over the years, and their collections just keep getting better. And best of all, they aren’t that expensive either! This particular pair is from Tonic.

I didn’t really have plans to purchase clothing for today, but a pair of white shorts has been on my shopping list for the longest time since my last pair got lost, so I figured what the hell. Jellybean had most of their items on sale, and I’m so lucky that this was in my size! I love their clothes, and they have great shoes as well.

Is it obvious how much I love Etude House? Ever since I passed by their shockingly cute pink store, I can’t get enough of their nail products. Although I think I would like to try some of their other cosmetics one of these days.

 

IMGP0021

I bought this for a DIY project I’m thinking of doing soon. Watch out for it!

 

IMGP0020

I’ve been trying to put off buying fishnets for a while now, but an event I’m going to attend at the end of the month made me decide to buy a pair now. I’m dreading that this is the last shopping trip I get to go on a while because I’m pretty sure thesis will take a huge chunk out of my fashion social life.

So are you wondering what’s behind the magic circle?

Well, then you’re in for some sad news. I’ve decided not to post the real photo of the shoes at this time. My mom gave me money to buy this beautiful pair  (MY FIRST REAL PAIR OF HEELS OMG!) to wear on my final thesis defense next month, and I’m scared that showing the entire interwebs what they look like might lessen my chances of passing. Yes, I am a superstitious freak.

However, I can say that Trunk Show offers some really amazing shoes at fantastic prices that won’t break your wallet in half rendering it practically useless. I was eyeing a few other pairs at their stall in Trinoma but I had to restrain myself.

I’ll make up for this next month when I pass through delibrations next month. IF I pass through. GAH. ME AND MY OPTIMISM HARHAR.

Have a good weekend everyone!

 

* Today’s blog title is a reference to the opening theme of Pretty Little Liars. I am starting to like the show.



Allie has seen many a dust bunny in her lifetime, most of them in her dorm room. She is often mistaken as a 13-year old, further intensified by her weird fashion choices that mostly involve cutesy patootsie rings, colorful knee high socks, and ribbons and bows in her hair. She dreams of waking up one day and finding herself as a character in Star Wars. Preferably a jedi. With a purple lightsaber.
