Give Me Givenchy

Despite the title, there's sadly nothing Givenchy in today's #ootd, but I wish there was! LOL Unfortunately, us mere mortals cannot afford the luxury that is designer goods. At least, not right now. #LibrengMangarap Am I right? Haha!

Anywho, while I was doing some online window shopping at ASOS which is one of my absolute favorite online stores, I found these sneakers that reminded me so much of the iconic star-studded Givenchy sneakers for a heck of a lot less for the price! Which is why it definitely pays to shop around, and ASOS could actually be your new best friend!

For those of you who don't know, ASOS is a London-based company that provides incredibly trendy clothes from tons and tons of brands that we all love, but what I especially think is cool is that they have their own line of clothes specially designed to keep up with the current trends which is so cool. Definitely a haven of look-for-less life cheats. Check them out here!

Easter 2014: Guimaras + Iloilo

We stayed at the Cabugan Adventure Resort in Guimaras. It's a pretty small place and here, each resort has their own island!

Unconventionally Casual With The Ramp

If you've ever tried shopping at the men's section of The Ramp, Crossings, then you can probably agree on how unique their pieces can be. Most of the pieces you find there definitely can't be seen anywhere else which is why I like to swing by when I have the chance, and don't even get me started with how vast their range is for women!

Anyways, the men's clothes can definitely be very pricey which is why I don't usually get to buy anything there, but since it's finally the End of Season (YAY!), there are literally crazy sales happening everywhere, which is absolutely the perfect time to strike! While I'm typing this, I can't tell you how stoked I am to go to River Island's sale because they have such huge reductions that I get giddy just thinking about it! Haha!

Going back to my point, my shirt in today's post is one of my recent acquisitions and my first from The Ramp because it went from about 1500 to just 300 bucks! Great deal, right? When I first saw it, it immediately reminded me of those skater-style shirts from way in the past with the fake long sleeve inside? I'm not sure what to call it, but when I saw the top, I felt that it was a really refreshing change from the usual color blocked tops where the second color takes over the entire sleeve. I love how this change of detail gives the shirt a totally new vibe. I can imagine wearing it casually like this and even a bit more trendy with maybe black pants and layer up when I go abroad! #MoneyWellSpent :)

Easter 2014: Adventures In Campuestuhan

We stayed at Campuestuhan and I honestly didn't know what to expect. It was a super long ride there and while I asleep, I was unaware that we were actually at the highlands already which meant lower temperatures, thankfully. Traveling locally just isn't so ideal anymore during Holy Week. The heat is too intense!
Anyways, when we arrived, it was raining the air was cold. It was almost heavenly. Haha! And one of the first few things I noticed was these towers everywhere which I later realized were zip line towers! Campuestuhan is actually an adventure type of resort and its not just for swimming. I didn't get to swim though because we were always doing other stuff and there are way too many people in the pools.

#TipsForUSTArkiFreshies Part 3: Life As An Architecture Student

Hey guys! So the last leg of my Arki Freshmen Tips is here! Since I'm done talking about the stuff you'll be encountering on your first year, I'm wrapping up my guide with these tips to eliminate any misunderstood notions about your first year as an architecture student. A myth-busting of sorts. Haha!

Anyways, if anything, I think this is the most important part of the series because these are the things you really need to know and so that you know the reality of what you're getting into. For UST students, if you've had your orientation already, then a lot of you must scared out of your minds right now. Haha! That's definitely how it was for me. The orientation felt more like a session full of plain old threats discouraging you from this course.

With that being said, they're doing to this so you can be absolutely sure that you can handle the very different curriculum they have in architecture. It's better to make your mind up now rather than later because shifting nowadays in UST is almost impossible. Rest assured, I'm here to tell you that it isn't as scary as you may think. If this is where you feel you belong, then no matter how hard things are going to get, and trust me, it will be INSANE at times, you will learn to love it!
