FSD: Lace Sculpting & Ruching

Last thursday we had a crazy weather, it's raining at one point then became sunny, then came some drizzles. I was too lazy to wake up and go to school, but it was couture day my favorite class of all. Here's the highlight of my day, Corset Lace Sculpting. 
Lace Sculpting is basically wrapping your corset by a corded lace making it look like just one piece. No seams, connections, cuts should show. It is done only and only by hand. 
Then next topic was Ruching (pronounced as roo-shing) it is gathering fabric to make it look wrinkled or rippled in a particular way. This technique requires a truckload of patience and a river of steel pins. This is also executed by hand sewing meticulously.
And here's a photo of my rainboots, coz I don't wanna get my feet wet.


Something for Nadj

I was up early today and of course I went online after my morning routine. I saw Nadj adding me on skype and twitted about it. So I logged in skype as well, and we started chatting. 'Twas hella fun chatting with someone who has same interests as you do. It's make-up and kakikayan for us. I remembered she twitted about her signature for her blog and I offered to make something for her. So Nadj, here are the sigs you can use for your blog. I hope you'll like them as much as I loved making them.

I Won Sugar's Giveaway!

Last time Sugar hosted a giveaway and there was a bonus question. It was to guess her age just for fun. I actually didn't win the major prize but I was able to guess her age. When I received my prize today I was like I know I just won the consolation prize but it seems like I got the wrong package. She sent me tons of lovely stuff! It's like winning the major prize already! It has Tony Moly's masks, EH body moisturizer, EH nail polish, EH Facial wash,  NYX lip cream in Istanbul, EH mask I guess, and my first ever Charm kabuki brush! I was in deep awe with her generosity. I never received any thing this much from a friend. Plus there's this sweet little note in a Kimmidoll stationary thanking me for joining her giveaway. I think I should be the one thanking her for the gifts she gave me. To the Sweetest Sugar, Thank you so much for my lovely prizes! 
Look how neat and pretty her handwriting is!

FSD: Philippine Sleeves

FSD: Fashion School Diary

Today, in my Haute Couture class we did 2 kinds of collars, and this beautiful butterfly sleeves. It is also known as the Philippine Sleeve. We normally use it in our national costumes and gowns. Standing collar, and Portrait collar made me nauseous, sleepy, lazy, & tired. Hmmm well not just me, Abet on the other hand, needed some sugar rush for he was literally falling asleep while finishing the portrait collar. So he went to 711 to get the class some donuts (thanks babe for the DD's). After 2 hours we were able to finish that thing and moved to the next topic, which is the butterfly sleeve! We got really excited for we  love it, 'twas beautiful and very classy. We had so much fun doing it that we decided to do it on a real fabric next time. So, here's a picture of me and Abet with our butterfly sleeves. Me-Gagafied! LOLS!
Take 2! Gagafied my eyes~ LOLS!
I am sick today that's why I looked so plain and oily. I was not in the mood to put on anything not even a face powder. So that's just moisturizer some dirt and oil. At least I was able to manage a smile and was able to go to class. I had a swedish massage last monday and got fever the next day. Is that normal or is it just me? It's not my first time to get a massage but I always get sick after getting one... =(

I Miss You Pangs!

The 30 day photo challenge
Day 30 - A photo of someone you miss.
This is my sister dear and I call her Pangs. No, actually we call each other Pangs (short for panget~ LOLS). That's how sweet we are. We call each other names and bully each other every time we get the chance. First 30 minutes of our skyping time would go pissing each other off. Then laugh at it when we're done with it. I haven't seen her for more than 10 years now. I still remember, I used to drop by her classroom on my recess time just to check on her and make sure she's not crying in her class. I used to put make-up on her every time she has a party, and even designed her prom dress. We would go christmas shopping together and made sure we are on each other's top list. I would always treat her out to KFC every sunday, because we're the only one's left at home and too lazy to cook. We went through a lot of things. She's the only person I can talk to heart to heart. She's the only person I always pray to have a long life and good health every night. I can go on forever with fun memories we've had. God, I miss her so much! I can't wait to see her and hug her! She's all grown up now, but I still see her as my cute little sister. The baby I used to kiss a lot until she cries and my mom would shoo me away, is now a beautiful lady. And she's visiting me this September! I can't wait! I'd bring her to places I love to eat, shop, party and hang out. I would let her meet my friends (she knows all my friends even the guys I dated). I'd bring her to my belly dancing class, hiphop dance class, even to my sewing class. I can't wait to do a lot of things with her again. I'm sorry Pangs if I wasn't able to be there all the time. But this time we'll have loads of fun! And it'll be forever! I miss you and love you my little sister! You will always be my little sister~

Last Friday Night

Warning: Picture heavy post~
Last friday it was our school's 8th year anniversary. And what would be the best way to celebrate it? Of course a fashion show at Sofitel's Fever Luxe Lounge. The theme was Red, Black & White, but more students opted to wear black including me. We had an open bar started @ 9pm, fashion show started around 11pm.

Since I'm not allowed to wear high heels yet, I used my boots for this event.

Open bar wooooot~

The owner of Fashion Institute of the Philippines, Mr. Shannon Pamaong.

Mama Rene Salud our school's president.

Then we headed to Republiq after party.

 That's what happened last friday night~
