#20Facts Challenge

I’ve been wanting to share this on my blog but just got the opportunity to do so by being nominated by my good friend Fianne for the #20FactsAboutMe challenge.

1. I go by the full name of Genevieve Anne Ebio Diocos

2. I have a lot of nicknames. Bib/ Gen/ Vieve/ Anne/ Biba/ Bebang/ Bebs/ Bibs/ Bangus and a lot more. (Haha! I can’t believe I mentioned the last one either.)

3. I graduated with a degree of BS in Business Administration major in Financial Accounting (March 2012). I presently work as a bank teller.

4. I fell in love with reading books through the magic of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.

5. I collect Candy Magazines in my teen years. My letters to Editor Mia was published for 5 times, one was featured as “Letter We Love”.

6. Tricia Gosingtian, Shai Lagarde, Camille Co and Vern & Verniece Enciso are my fave bloggers who inspired me to make my own.

7. Hello Kitty is my cartoon hero. I still collect kitty items up to now.

8. The Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sanrio Puroland in Tokyo and Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando are my top 3 dream destinations.

9. I went cray cray over the Gossip Girl television series when I was in college. It went to the point when my Mom hides the DVD for me not to watch it on a school day.

10. FIC’s Choco Mint and Milk Tea are my fave ice cream flavors.

11. I enjoy cooking and baking. Our kitchen is where you can usually find me, besides the girl’s bedroom at home.

12. I have a pretty niece, Anika Sansa from my Kuya JC and a handsome nephew, Reigchael Gian from my Kuya Mikey.

13. McDonald’s cheeseburger is my comfort food. Even with a really bad day, it all subsides when I have a bite of it.

14. I can’t swim. Hence, I’m not a big fan of riding boats, going to beaches, and just the plain saltwater and sand.

15. I’m a DIY junkie. I enjoy doing arts and crafts just like my Mom and sister. Me and my sister even do scrap booking together when we were little.

16. I can stay up really late for the sake of watching Korean dramas.

17. Pastel colors, lace, florals and neutrals are the things you can mostly find in my wardrobe.

18. Eyelash perming, mani and pedi are the things that I do on a monthly basis to pamper myself.

19. I can sing to every Taylor Swift song. (With feelings. Hahaha!)

20. Blogging for me is therapeutic. This blog serves as an outlet for me, I love it even more when people tell me they read it. (Like, real people actually read it.)

And I now end this post by nominating Tazz, Kae and Ara to do the same.

That is all for this post. I hope you guys like it. Don't forget to hype my look here.

Jacket On

As the rain pours that literally washes away our worries from the heat of the sun, it also gives this cozy vibe to stay at home, enjoy a hot cup of tea or coffee while catching up with your fave tv series you’ve missed while at school or work, or start to read a new book everyone’s been raving about or even have a movie marathon of the Harry Potter Series. Oh gloomy days like this, it makes me want to regret that I was only able to enjoy summer for less than a week. Sigh.

But despite of this, I still feel very blessed that I get to visit places and will get to visit places I want to go to. A few months ago, we've went back to the beautiful city of Baguio to visit my one week old niece. Yes. I now have a niece, a really pretty one.

I told you guys we'd be going back and forth to Baguio. Anyway, we just went for a short visit and the rain was pouring the whole time, so we weren't able to enjoy the outdoors. But we still had so much fun.

For my outfit on our free day, I know I've said that I swore not to wear a skirt to this city but I expected that it would be sunny but it wasn't and it's the only thing I've brought since we were travelling light. I didn't regret it though. It kept me warm throughout our indoor stay. 

I wore denim on denim. It wasn't that of a risk though since it was a completely different shade that the skirt is a printed denim. Underneath my jacket is the long sleeve peek-a-boo top from Ripples by Jenny. Then, I wore my summer sandals from Forever 21, who knew it would still look appropriate with the look. I gave my fave and overused nude sandals a break hence, I've used these pair instead. It is definitely one of the comfiest pairs I have.

This is now the part where I dump you guys with photos during our stay there. To what bloggers call it, behold another photo diary, Baguio short visit edition. Scroll away!

Me with annoyed niece. Hahaha

Look how adorable she looks.

Another picture with my niece, this time, she doesn't look that annoyed. Haha

Afternoon Tea

Crazy as it may sound but I enjoy a hot tea even during the hottest afternoon of summer. That's why I was thrilled that there's finally a place to enjoy an afternoon tea, at the Avenue Plaza Hotel. Offered from 2 o'clock in the afternoon to six, tea lovers like me would enjoy an afternoon hanging out with friends, or loved ones sharing three tiers array of pastries. There are three choices offered; Classic, Exquisite and Avenue Signature. We chose Classic since Tazz, Kae, Darel and I both just had our lunch. The classic includes smoked salmon sandwich, clubhouse sandwich, banana chocochip cookie, avenue ensaymada, walnut muffins, blueberry & marble cheesecake, white panna cotta vanilla, chocolate cake and tiramisu. For our tea, we had the Four Red Fruits, now my current favorite.

Top: Koreana Shop, Skirt: Thrifted & Shoes: CLN

Since this was my second visit, I opted for something simple like this sequined top paired with my lilac maxi skirt. You guys know my love for pastel and all things sparkly like sequins. This ensemble goes to show that I love both equally that I even paired them with each other. Anyway, I paired this with my yellow sandals from CLN, yellow slim belt from Tomato and this vintage native sling bag I got from my Aunt. My date for that afternoon was my LMFs and Darel.

Our experience was such a blast just sharing stories while enjoying a nice cup of tea and having bites of absolutely delish pastries. Our tummies were full at the end of the afternoon. I recommend this to group of friends and couples who enjoy tea.

And when you hair just can't handle the wind blowing, high hair bun to the rescue. 

I always enjoy an afternoon with this bunch. Also, thanks to our official photographer, Darel, who doesn't mind being with us in the picture.

That is all for this post. I hope you guys like it. Don't forget to hype my look here.

Spa Day

Top and shorts: Local bazaar, Bag: Mango, and Shoes: CLN

May it be school or work, we all need a breather in order for us to perform our best. Besides from my monthly mani and pedi bonding session with mom, I make sure to also give time for some spa day. Either just a relaxing foot spa or an overwhelming whole body massage, it gives me time to relax and clear my head from my daily grind.

One of the latest trends nowadays are going to spa places. Almost every city has it already and is usually packed on weekends. I was introduced to going to spas ever since I shared to my colleagues how I have this awful back pains. One of the spas I've visited that I very much liked the service is My Spa located at the corner of Penafrancia and MT Villanueva Avenues, where you can also enjoy sauna bathing. And for first timers it is a must that we should be mindful on what we wear. Something we could easily get out and in to. One of the things that comes to my mind are rompers but I opted for something spa-ish vibe.

I usually go with button-down shirts and a pair of shorts but I feel a bit playful and wore a tube-top, a pair of shorts and layered it with a sheer kimono, something that became a trend during summer.

Why did I mentioned that you have to wear something you can easily change into? Well, when you go to spas of course we need to change into robes, to get ready before the massage. In My Spa though you have an option to use their shower room, where the sauna is, before the masseuse starts with the massaging.

And now that I just got home from work, finishing this post, I kinda want to get a massage soon.

For my outfit, the color I focused on is the hint of mustard yellow in my kimono, hence the color of the scalloped shorts. I just added white lace tube top to balance out the color. I also grabbed my overused CLN sandals and Mango sling bag.

That is all for this post. I hope you guys like it. Don't forget to hype my look here.


Much Love,

Glitter kisses! xxx
