More from DLSU's Centennial Celebration!

Thank you to all the photographers :-) sorry I can't remember all of your names. Most of these I just got tagged on Facebook, hihi.

Where do you go when you're lonely?

It seems like I have found my happy place. Whenever I feel down, I end up hitting Starbucks Tomas Morato for my alone time. Having had such a terrible week (despite vacationing in Palawan), I dragged my butt here to have my favorite cup of coffee and to just chill in the balcony area. :-)

I think I am liking this afternoon. Me in my happy place, sipping my favorite hot white chocolate mocha, loving the breezy Manila weather, with my earphones on playing my favorite feel-good tunes.

I pray that things get better soon.


Happy Hundred Years, La Salle!

June 16, 2011 -- the day that La Salle was such a happy, happy place! You can never deny how strong a Lasallian's Animo is. :-)

This day was absolute perfection. From breakfast, to being with the boy that has been making me extremely happy these past few days, to preparing for the show, to performing, to meeting the parents and roommates, to watching the fireworks, etc, etc. This day couldn't have been any better. :-)

Dancing to Live It Up, the Centennial dance anthem, before "Cheers!" :-)

Last photo was during the rehearsals the night before :-)

And of course, the cherry on top of a perfect day--the fireworks that lit up the whole sky!

We've been preparing for this day for weeks and I'm glad it was all worth the sweat, body pain and sleepless nights! I'm also glad it's over and done with, now I can finally rest. :-)

Monday morning I'm leaving for Palawan with my mom and her sisters. Vacation for me, yay! (and yes I'll be skipping school for a week boohoo)


New Baby

My previous school bag is starting to give up on me so when asked for what birthday present I wanted, I immediately said a new school bag! So here I am, unveiling my new baby! Say hello to my new everyday school bag, c/o my favorite aunt. :-)

Look at the awesome detail! :-)

And hey look, it fits my laptop just perfectly! :-)

If you ask me, I'd definitely recommend Charles and Keith and Nine West for sturdy roomy school bags. :-)



MY LIFE IS COMPLETE (I think). I've been meaning to try this out since I've seen those pretty fishtail braid photos on Tumblr but never really knew how to until now! For some reason, I could never follow those how-to's I found online but all thanks to Youtube, I can do it now, yay!

Here's my take on the (messy--make it VERY messy) fishtail braid/plait.

The lovely inspirations I got off Tumblr:

Looks like someone's got a new everyday hairstyle :3

Happy 2nd Blogversary!!!

My blog is two years old now!!! :-)

LSDC-Contemporary auditions this afternoon. I'm so excited! New members, finally! Although I would only have one term to spend with them :-( but on the bright side, I am graduating in October! I am so stoked! I can't wait to graduate, then maybe, just maybe, take my masters in France. Hopefully masters in fashion :-) searching for good programs now!

At the moment, I'm feeling like I want to take up an internship in the fashion industry here in the Philippines. Any suggestions, anyone? If you know contacts or open positions or something, please let me know through comment or email me (pixierixie@gmail.com)!



First Class

Recently purchased Forever21 headwrap and top, vintage crocheted vest, jeans, Swatch watch

My dad and I have this habit of catching big movies (especially when they're Marvel or DC) in the cinemas once they come out, so tonight we caught the last full show of X-Men: First Class and can I just say... BEST X-MEN EVER!!!!!!!!! It was such an amazing movie, I don't mind watching it in the cinemas again. I was surprised to find out that Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till were part of it!

Since he picked me up from school just after my class, and the movie wasn't until 9:40pm, we had a lot of time to kill. Went carbo loading at Sbarro, then did a lot of window shopping (although I got him to buy me a headwrap and ties!--thanks dad).

Our next scheduled movie date: Green Lantern perhaps? Or whatever big movie's next!

By the way, please bear with ze webcam photos for today! I wasn't able to charge my camera's battery so I wasn't able to take any decent pictures. :-( last time I got to charge it was during my birthday, I think! Wasn't even able to bring it out the other day :-(

And speaking of the other day... I also finally got to watch Kung Fu Panda 2 last Tuesday night with a couple of friends! It was such a cute movie, way better than the first one! Makes me want to have my own baby panda :3 Tuesday night was filled with so much good vibrations (despite me being broke because my awesome possum friends had to drag me to Forever21, and knowing myself, I couldn't leave without purchasing anything!), just the right amount I needed after having such an awful week last week. :-)

I'm glad to tell you guys that I'm better now! Not entirely good or healed, but definitely much better than I was last week. :-)
