I love how the beach is only 30 minutes away from the city. Sometimes we have to get away from the hassle city life and just take time to unwind and relax. :) Take a plunge & dive in!
Paid a visit to the beach when my cousin was in town. We had some drinks at Shangri-la then headed to BE Resort where we swam and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon. I’ll always love the beach life in Cebu :)
Some pictures from the short trip I had with the family to HK. It’s my third time this year to fly there and this city never bores me.
This shoot made me feel like I was traveling back in time to the 1940’s. It was my first time to have a shoot that had a vintage concept. I felt like I was Jane Crawford or Marlene Dietrich strutting my knee length skirt and trousers. (and I loved it!). I totally loved my look that was made by the magical hands of Victor Reed. He concentrated on the dark lips and stayed light on the eye-make up. I loved how it worked out. The clothes during the 1940’s were very simple and practical since it was during the war days. I also loved how Nicky was able to give me both a feminine and masculine look in these photos. The inspiration of Nicky Roa, stylist and visionary of the shoot, was dowdy and drab — which basically means a lot of vintage flowers. This is Nicky’s “dream shoot” since it shows his style and aesthetic as a designer.
The talented photographer, Ryann Reyes, was able to capture wonderful pictures and made them seem very surreal. I really loved how these photos turned out to be. He was really able to achieve what Nicky was aiming for. I’m absolutely impressed with his works (again) and I’m sure you guys love his photographs too. It is indeed very overwhelming to know that this is Ryan’s favorite shoot to date and I’m part of it. *kilig*
Anyway…Have a fine day, everyone!
Compilation of random clips I took from February- May 2011. Crazy and fun times with my friends.
The weather in Cebu has been insanely bipolar lately. I don’t understand how hot and sunny it could get, and the next thing I notice it is raining crazy. Despite the terrible atmospheric condition, the fam bam and I decided to spend our weekend at Shangri-la. Thankfully mr. sun showed up that day and cooperated with us. It was such a great (and short) vacay! I was able to bond with family, swim and try out stand-up paddle boarding and get some needed vitamin D.
Guess I’m inlove with Shangr-la once again. I could stay in this place forever.
Took a short trip to the beach last weekend. It was amazing to bond with friends, take a break from the city life and just relax and enjoy. Inlove with life even more. :)
I did a shoot for Jan Gonzales x Jessie Glova last March 2011, and it was just today when I received that photo above — I even forgot about that. Jan has been pretty busy with other projects, hence the delay. Mr. Jan Gonzales is one of Cebu’s top photographers, a regular in Zee Magazine and does campaigns for other national magazines. And again, it was a pleasure working with him since I’m no professional. For the hair and make up, it was glamorously done by the great Jessie Glova. I’m sure most of you guys know Jessie — the make up artist that could do wonders and really make you look your best.
