It’s about time I post something recent haha! Last Saturday night I went to the debut of one of my closest friends, Cristina, along with our other blockmates. Angie and I are from the south so we made sure to leave early to avoid heavy Saturday traffic. We’re also not familiar with the place but thanks to GPS we didn’t get lost!
Sucks to be behind the camera sometimes because you’re not included in most of the (cute) photos. 😦 I had to take a selfie with the big cam just to get into the picture!
Good thing some of my friends volunteered to take some of the photos so I have a few decent ones, yey!
One of the highlights of the night is when Cristina distributed the souvenirs. She wrote and painted different quotes for each guest and had them all framed. They were super neat that my sister was surprised when she found out that Cristina made them herself! Hahaha we all loved it so much!
Here are more photos from the rest of the night.
Thank you Cristina! We had so much fun.
I remember my classmates freaking out when I told how much this whole outfit costs. They said they never would have guessed that absolutely everything I’m wearing here is a product of my thrift shopping! You see I really love dressing up and I like my closet to have variety. As much as I would like to run to the mall and buy as much clothes that I want, I’m afraid I don’t have enough money for that. Also, it would be impractical to keep on buying clothes and stack them in your closet for a really long time. As a solution, I thrift shop! You would be surprised that there are actually a lot of stores in the mall that sell very affordable clothes with decent quality. Patience is the key!
The plain white shirt I’m wearing here is from Tiendesitas. Basic white tops are a must since you can pair them with almost anything and be sure that it will always work out! I tend to overuse this shirt especially on lazy casual outfits to school or to a spontaneous hang outs with friends. I got it for 100 pesos. Good deal isn’t it?
This pair of shorts is from Greenhills. I bought it for only 150 pesos. I think it went down from 300 since I bought a lot more from that shop. Haha. The snakeskin necklace is from one of my Divisoria trips with my sister. It costs 50 pesos.
Meanwhile, this pair of shoes is from SM. I don’t know what they call them but they’re the ones with the “2 for 399” promo.
The shades are a little more expensive though. They’re from Sunnies Studios (previously called Sunnies by Charlie), for 499. But of course you can opt to buy more affordable sunnies but I personally go for the good quality ones since I don’t really buy sunnies all the time.
You see, fashion doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s just about finding the right places to buy.
Let me know what you think! Xxx Tricia

Some of my blockmates are changing their profile pictures into this
Judging from how it looks, I’m guessing it’s edited by the kontrabida of my life, Angie.
I’ve seen gimmicks like this before but I still felt extremely kilig when I see that they’re doing it for me. Also, I enjoy reading the captions. They’re mostly short, simple, and sincere. I feel like I’m having a real debut celebration where these friends are called out one-by-one to give out their messages. I feel so loved. Thank you blockmates!

I just finished reading a yahoo article called <a href=”http://https://ph.she.yahoo.com/photos/10-ways-to-reinvent-your-look-slideshow/10-warm-up-your-face-photo-1410926697313.html”>”10 Ways to Reinvent Your Look”</a>, perfect for my crossing-from-childhood-years-to-mature-years day! HAHAHA I think I’m ready to sleep.
We started the day by celebrating mass where, coincidentally, we were asked to be the offerers of. Then, we went straight to our second home, Glorietta-Greenbelt, and had lunch at Italianni’s which is one of my mom’s favorite restaurants.
Since everyone’s finished giving me their gifts (I will blog about them very soon), we went shopping for my baby sister, who’s celebrating her 10th birthday 5 days later, instead. We went to Greenbelt and entered different kiddie stores. However, the pieces from Gingersnaps were the ones tat caught her attention. There she bought a cute tank top paired with a printed leggings. She also bought a pair of shoes from Toms!
I thank God for this wonderful day spent with the most important people in my life. Also, thank you family and friends for all the birthday greetings! You all made me feel very special.
