Green and bare it

Title
Some people grin and bear it, others smile and do it.
Title
We all meander through the daily hustle and bustle of life in however way we wish to. Joining the working class didn't make life any easier for me, except for the fact that I am slowly gaining independence and financial freedom. All those time sitting in rush hour traffic made me miss my 15-year run as a student. Gone are the days when thesis was my biggest problem and clothing options were endless. Graduating from college meant fleeing my comfort zone; no more gasoline allowance from the daddy, no more free pass from doing household chores when swamped with school work and no more incentive shopping after a certain achievement. As bittersweet as it sounds I've learned to love this new chapter and is surprisingly enjoying every second of it. We can grin and bear it, or just smile and do it ;)
Title
I took geek chic into a whole new level, complete with the bun, stained lips, socks and satchel. The onset of the typhoon made shooting outdoors impermissible and these photos were shot in my brother's bedroom. Thanks to Jose and Ela for taking my outfit photos for today! This dress is my new favorite recent-acquisition from Forever 21. I wasn't supposed to buy anything but the color, fabric and cut of this dress pretty much called for it! It looks all too sweet but wait till you see the back.
Title
Green and bare it!
Title
I just adore any article of clothing -- be it top or dress, with cut-out detail at the back! I like the subtle sexiness it exudes.

I recently learned of this new photography app on the iPad and I've been hooked since this morning! Thank you Danielle Wassmer and Erickson Javier for the tip :) I unconsciously skipped lunch because I kept on tinkering from morning until late afternoon. I think I like it better than Instagram. You can choose your own combination of frames and effects and it can conveniently export your photos on flickr after editing! Ahh blogging made easy. The first two photos look as if I'm part of the Promises, Promises (Incubus) music video.

Thanks for checking in :) Keep safe everyone!

I already like your personality even if I haven't met you yet. :) Something about you screams "smart" (and it's not because of the geeky vibe of the outfit). I enjoyed reading your "about me". I followed you! Looking forward to more of your posts!
