Natural light, nature, freckles, messy waves, and a pop of color. A few of my favorite things, making this one of my favorite shoots to date.
Special thanks to Xeng for making this look possible. Although, this was the very first time we met and worked together, we instantly got each other and made a great team. Huge thanks to Merry as well for putting together these amazing looks, especially the make-shift top and skirt using just 2 scarves. Lastly, thank you to Olivia, the most graceful and spontaneous model I’ve worked with. Kudos to her flexibility!!! I can say I am truly honored to be able to collaborate with all these amazing, talented, and passionate people. This is what keeps me going!
Enjoy and follow Olivia to paradise.

Swimwear: Eve The Label
Went back to La Union with some friends recently, and I just continue to fall in love with the place. Though LU is known for surfing, I go there simply to enjoy that chill surf town vibe, and hope to go home 2 shades darker. I always go back to the same hostel Flotsam and Jetsam just because it’s really pretty (and clean too)! Really pleased to see its expansion and most of all, that my favourite LU coffee spot El Union has moved in. Sharing a look we shot early in the morning- always a fan of morning light. I’ve been into one piece maillots a lot lately, but I get slightly obsessive compulsive about getting an even tan. I guess it just means I need more beach days to even it out! X

Here’s the much awaited shoot I did yesterday with Toni Despojo (Miss Marie PH). We were lucky enough to have Montebello Villa Hotel as the perfect backdrop for our whole day session. For our first set we thought the old romantic pillars were perfect for this classic black wrap around dress from Eve The Label. Giving it a little modern twist with my J.Crew hat and offsetting this look with Converse from Shopbop instead of heels. The perfect balance of casual and formal styling elements was what completed this look. That, and Toni’s awesome photography skills.
Sleeping with Eve (The Label)
Finding comfort in sleep is a precious gift and what’s more precious is when you get to find the perfect silk pajama set that could get you to cloud nine. I’m talking about Eve The Label ‘s customized pajama set. Ever since I got this I’ve been bringing this sleepwear with me every time I go out of town and the comfort level is amazing. I practically sleep like a baby whenever I’m wearing this one! It’s pretty cute too since I get to customize my name on the pocket. Style and comfort all rolled into one. Sweet dreams friends!
Events almost always make me feel underdressed – like I never put enough effort into what I wear nor my hair & make up. Even when I find myself in the most uncomfortable pair of heels – which is, to me, equivalent to Lenten sacrifice – fellow event attendees I bump into are always extremely polished or dressed to the nines with matching full make up. Admittedly, it makes me look like I spent a maximum of 5 minutes on myself in comparison despite my much longer make up ritual (albeit just in the car.)
Then again, being polished wouldn’t feel “me”. Don’t get me wrong, I have the same number of blazers as much as the next person but they are mostly reserved for those special meetings with non-fashion industry folks who wouldn’t understand my understated dressing and who might consider my lack of formalwear rude.
I wore this dress to a recent event and though I felt initially conscious in a sea of elegant midi skirts and tulle, I was reminded that this look actually captures my aesthetic – extremely comfortable (it’s loose and has pockets) and rather revealing. Don’t be fooled: that deep V goes much lower than my belly button, I was just feeling slightly more conservative that day and decided to tie it a little higher and tighter. It was just an afternoon get-together anyway.
I already feel pressured to wear heels out most of the time, I really shouldn’t let societal expectations get the best of my wardrobe too. This dress stays on. And make no mistake, it will stay on for a long time. Probably ’til the strings are tattered by my dryer. Probably even then.
Shades of Style
The only season that I can actually feel free and liberated is, Summer. When I got this dress from EVE THE LABEL I never knew that I could actually wear it off the beach. haha! Of course I’m not that liberated yet so I made sure I wore the best undergarments. I personally love EVE THE LABEL since they have the sexiest yet very wearable pieces ever! You should check their personalized PJ’s out!

The view, the people and the cuisine were the aspects of Santorini I saw through the staycation. Staying in the hotel was already amazing, what more in their streets? Expect that on the next posts!
Thanks for dropping by!
The sweet color of pink is what we’re up to on today’s post. I’m here in Dumaguete right now and since we’re opening up a new branch and we’ve been extra busy and doing loads of over time work all I’m thinking about is staying under the sheets under the comfort of my Eve The Label (ig: @evethelabel_) sleepwear. Cozying up to dreamy weekends and pink hues.
Here at Liloan right now to chill for the entire weekend. Holy week has finally come in and I am super excited to just relax all day. This summer season I am all about sheer dresses that go well with the relaxing breeze and the blazing hot sun. Keeping cool in this chic Yves dress from Eve The Label (ig: @evethelabel_). Beat the heat!
What I’d give to have a garden filled with pretty flowerrs like these! This Tyler Set from Eve The Label (ig: @evethelabel_) was the perfect outfit to wear having this as my backdrop. Yup! The brand has more than sleepwear to flaunt. Light and neutral tones seem to be coming up on a lot of recent spring trends so I thought this would be a good match to shoot. It’s sexy yet sweet all rolled into one.
