The Ramble

i feel I’ve been slacking off on blogging duties but I’m thinking I might disappoint my hordes of readers (i have faith and an incredible imagination). So, now, here in the salon with only one hand for typing because I’m getting a manicure, I feel is as good a time as any to exercise my muli-tasking chops and blog. So I am.

I’m getting one of those washable-type cellophane hair treatments at the moment coz I want my hair to be really bright for the intramurals I don’t necessarily– ah, I have my hand back, now– have a part of. I’ve also just gotten a manicure with this gray matte polish that mommy and I bought from Skin Food. It is PRETTY, albeit a little faded and weird, coz I don’t think the concept of MATTE was properly grasped by the manicurist. Needless to say, I have gray fingernails. I am happy. Pictures will get posted as soon as I get some. 馃槢

I’ve been posting more lookbook shots, I’ve not been keeping it an everyday thing as much as I used to but it’s constant and going as strong as I can expect it to go. I have hypes– although not too many– and I’m happy.

So the midterms week passed by with not so much as a peep from me. I’m thinking I’m better off swearing off blogging during hell week than broadcasting it to the millions of readers and then failing the exams. I’ve not seen a lot of results but from what I HAVE, it’s pretty smooth sailing from here.

I’ve been having problems with my hair recently. It’s falling off. Not as melodramatically as you would think, like coming off in clumps and leaving patches as though I have Alopesia but it’s getting to be more than the normal hundred-strands-a-day shed and it’s sufficient enough to creep me out. My dad’s taking me to a dermatologist to check with the condition of my scalp. I am scared.

On a lighter note, I’ve a lot of nice pictures to entertain you. AFTER THE JUMP!!!

How was the jump? I’ll bet it was jeeeest fine…

So, intramurals week. The one week we get off from school for sports and whatnot. Ok, I don’t really much care for any real purpose of being but I am hella GRATEFUL I get the week (and more, coz the school can’t fight national holidays like the Araw Ng Kagitingan and the End of Ramadan) off. I don’t want to seem insensitive to the people that actually have SOMETHING relevant to do on the said holidays but it’s not a crime to be happy for days off. So there.

I’m just boiking toast any which way I feel. 馃榾

We went to this HUGE convention held at the Cebu International Convention Centre (of course it would be a convention! teehee… ;)) that held a ton of different stuff. It was a One Cebu Expo where anybody from Cebu who wanted to could have a display or sell their wares and stuff. It was nice.

I got a lot of new fun accessories, I would’ve gotten more if Mom and Dad wouldn’t keep giving me the stink-eye everytime I ask to buy something. Must earn money! O.o

So, we went around, had a shopping trip, had a food trip… Here’s what i wore:

did it make your toast boil? 馃槈

Ok, so we had a little dance practice this morning so I’m feeling energized and sexy, today. The steak I had for lunch at Pancake House is giving me a bit of a gut, though. I really don’t care.

I feel beautiful, today.

This is why I’m whipping out my high heels. 馃榾

I’m literally waiting for the waiting time for posting another new look to end. I have a new look! Can you believe it?

I’m addicted to fashion.

I always have been, it’s just that I’ve found a place in which it can manifest itself.

Well, ain’t that just dandy?

Toast can be dandy… When it’s boiled. 馃槈

Sometimes, in fashion, you have to know when to surrender lest you end up with the most mangled set of feet. I chose to change out of my stilettos. My feet were dying!

So, we went out to the movies last night. I wore a more comfortable outfit. Same shirt, same accessories. ‘Nother pair of shorts, a pair of sneaks.

I’m not afraid to put on a pair of kicks.

I read a lot of fashion blogs. I follow a lot of model-type females that look like good pictures come naturally to them. I am not one of those ladies.

But I try.

More often than not, I am complete and utter FAILURE. Once in a blue moon, however, magic happens.

Can you see it?

Boiling toast, one slice at a time. 馃槢

I Trippedy Tripoded it up with Joachim, my ever-so-game brother. It’s not one of my better pictorials but at least I have something to show for it. I love the shoes, though. I also kind of like my attempt at a silvery, chainy arm party. Pictures after the jump!

Check out the cracked polish! Green on green, subtle but still awesome… 馃榾 THE BUN MAKES IT ALL PERFECT. I love my hair. By the way, i may be thinking twice about wearing the top again. Hmmm…

Oh, well… Enjoy! I had a great day, today, anyway.

The best fashion days are the ones where you don’t even care anymore. 馃榾

I felt muy feminina today. I had my skirt on and my hair up in a dainty bun and everything! Pictures after the jump…

My compliments to my brother, Joachim, for being there to click the camera instead of having me run back and forth between desk and tripod. 馃榾

Enjoy the show! I enjoyed posing, even though I do not have a single model bone or photogenic bone in my body. Yes, I’m allowed vanity. 馃槈

So, yeah, i don’t know if I can keep coming up with inspired looks but as long as I do, I’ll keep posting pictures. However, the blog isn’t just about fashion (or lack of it, depending on what you think — in which case, STFU).

BOILED TOAST is about the rammblings of a 20-year-old, just stepping into the “real world”. My hijinks are sure to amaze you. 馃槈

Yours until the toast boils, toast boilers. I can’t get over the fact that I’m back! 馃榾

Ok, so I know it’s unforgivable that I haven’t posted in a LONG LONG time.

Let’s just forget about it, though. Life goes on. I call this post, “la resurreccion”. (Spanish for the resurrection: DUDE, I AM SO INTO SPANISH RIGHT NOW…)

I AM ALIVE. And, yes, I shall post clothes and stuff… And other things that make me feel all blogger-y and awesome.

I may be remorseful but you still don’t have a say.

I AM BACK. 馃榾

Ah, the immortal words from the Nutty Professor (I’m pretty sure you thought I was quoting from a certain prominent political figure of our time).

I want you all to know that the biggest EVER inspiration for me in deciding to make this blog are the fashion blogs by Jane Aldridge, Chiara Ferragni, and Leandra Medine, reading Sea of Shoes, The Blonde Salad, and The Man Repeller, respectively. They are all so awesome.

And because I feel like it and because I want to make a tribute to these fine fashionable inspirations, I’m posting a “What I Wore Today” type of thing.

I’m also doing it because I can.

Pictures of what I think is an exercise in sartorial freedom after the jump, toast boilers… 馃槈

This outfit was worn on February 1, 2o11… for a day in school — rainy, I might add. 馃榾

Pictures by Louise, who is great for taking the pictures when she was tired but is horrible for messing some up by blurring them… PFFT… 馃槈

headband: SM DEPARTMENT STORE; cardigan: SHALL WE DANCE; shirt: GAP; skirt: NEXT JEANS; socks: GREENHILLS TIANGGE; wedges: CMG

If you noticed, my hair is short here already. 馃槈

If I like how this comes out, I might post more. Otherwise we’ll just stick to random wotsits, yeah?

Either way, I’m letting my freak flag fly. You should, too. 馃榾

 

I have to say, Louise’s party was a success! I had so much fun that night, regardless of the slow beginning and the bitter end that had transpired.

YOU JUST HAD TO BE THERE.

It was therapeutic to let loose. I needed that. 馃檪

So glad I did it with some of the people closest to my heart… And my toast… 馃榾

Here are a few pictures that ought to make you jealous… 馃槈

and don’t worry, it’s all on facebook… 馃榾
