CANDY MAG: STYLE FILES
Just last week, I got featured on www.candymag.com as the It Girl on the Web. Gone are the days where I usually scan through the past It Girls on their site, I, somehow, was glad that I saw myself posted on that same page too. Click here to read the full post.
And by the way, I would like to thank all those who joined my Big Birthday x Blogversary Giveaway. All your entries are in and I’m going to pick the winners tomorrow. Until my next blog giveaway, glamorous readers!
Last May 10, 2014 was the very first Candy Reader’s Choice Awards held at the Rockwell Tent, Makati. There were lots of cute artists to die for and my fave was Enrique Gil (ok im dying). I wasn’t at the event just to be an attendee, but I came to work. Although, I thought I would be one at first. So yeah, you read it just right, I worked, and of course, I got paid. That was probably my first job, ever! And getting paid through the work I’ve done during the event made me feel -even more- productive than the usual - I hadn’t even realized that I’ll be working earlier than this. Me and my team represented Whisper through their booth, and that exactly made us so tensed that we were all wishing to be precisely like the others, to be an attendee - representing a local brand plus, entertaining all the Candy girls who drops by our booth? Oh god, one mistake would ruin not only us, but the brand itself. And none of us wished for that to happen, that’s why we were definitely challenged not to crack up the booth, but in the end, we nailed our job. And on the brighter side, apart from having our salary, we were able to bond with some of the Candy cuties and we got a free access at the backstage. What a hella tiring yet a fun day!
The event came up with a beach theme which I thought at first was wearing two piece or swim wear. (I hope I wasn’t just the only one who thought about that because, ugh) Then luckily, I’ve read the Candy magazine and I recognized that whatever it is that’s running through my head, was absolutely wrong. Because the so-called “beach theme” had a twist, and it’s all about -just- wearing summer inspired clothes, and that’s it. So here’s what I wore at the Candy Reader’s Choice Awards - a very girly one.

Here’s to my team who aced our job at the Candy Reader’s Choice Award! Cheers!
And the most unforgettable part - the free access to the backstage. All thanks to my friend’s mom for being the event organizer for Candy RCA 2014. *Love you Lysh!*
So I guess that’s it! We weren’t able to capture as many photos as we want to because, obviously, we were busy working. This was such an amazeballs event for me. I usually just grab a candy magazine out of a bookstore monthly but I didn’t see myself working for Candy, ever. What a Candy day!
I’ve taken a lot of interest with these all-black sneaker wedges since I bought them and it makes me feel like a -leading edge- hipster, all the time. It was a good purchase though it was a bit pricey, and I didn’t regret buying them, only because they’re too hot for a cool kicks. Haha. I actually planned to buy a pair of an all-black vans, but then I thought it was too mainstream, and honestly, sneaker wedges are a bit fresh and stylish. Plus, I could instantly snap a hipster look on any outfit I itch for. Easy breezy! Also, I can see how my style changed a bit. From being all too girly, I slowly diverse to hipster outfits. Which I think is a good thing, right?
So, this was the outfit I came up with when we went to Frolic last Friday to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Hope you like it!

Summer might’ve just ended for some, but in my case, I still have one more month ahead of me before I finally begin my second year in college - probably dealing with random people and commuting, again. Plus, if the rain won’t appear just as much as often, then I would probably be dealing with the - unbearable- heat. Oh god! Can someone get rid of the sun, please? Haha.
As for my outfit, I came up with a hipster look that’s kinda relevant for summer. So far, this one’s one of my favorite outfit and I shan’t say anything anymore because the outfit speaks for itself already. (Lol, lazy ass) And by the way, don’t forget to join my blog giveaway here.
