I WAS MADE FOR SUNNY DAYS

 CEBU-FASHION-BLOGGERS-MEN-ALMOSTABLOGGER.jpg

When someone asks me where do I find style inspiration, I always say that I get inspired by the people I meet everyday. They could be strangers I just happened to see while I was walking down the street. Or while I’m writing for the blog in my favorite spaces here in Cebu. So in other words, as a Fashion Blogger, I take inspiration anywhere.

UNLIMITED COFFEE AT CEBU MARRIOTT HOTEL

Hey there! How’s your day? I hope you are doing well today. As for me, I have been stressing out about my internet connection. It's no secret that I usually go to coffeeshops when I have to write for the blog because staying at home would only mean watching Netflix or sleeping the entire day. Hahaha But sometimes because these coffeeshops are full of people connecting to the in house internet, it becomes almost impossible to connect. Thankfully, Cebu Marriott Hotel happens to have their "AFTERNOON BREW" promo that runs until September 30, 2017.

CEBU FASHION BLOG - What is Athleisure? Well, you can find a lot of definitions on the internet. But personally, I think athleisure is active wear and casual dressing combined.

FIVE QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE TRAVELING WITH FRIENDS

CEBU-BLOGGER-ALMOSTABLOGGER-TRAVEL-FRIENDS.jpg

Fashion is my life. But traveling is also my thing. Any chance I could get to travel, I take it! Most of my travels have been with friends - whether just in Cebu, around the Philippines or outside the country. For many of us, traveling is one way to relieve stress. But what if that trip becomes a burden instead? How could you have prevented it? Well, here are some questions to ask before booking that flight with your friends.


TOP OR BOTTOM? I SAY, BE ON TOP!

Aside from being a Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger in Cebu, I am a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit by profession. Having to do both  with other activities and commitments on the side requires a lot. But I want to believe that I have always been on top of my game. 

THE 70's REVIVAL

Hey Guys! We are already half way this very fashionable year but it seems like 2016’s top trend the seventies is here to stay. The trick to pulling off this style is to wear pieces that are inspired by that fashion era. Remember, it has to be “inspired”! Unlike women, for menswear, stay away from the bell bottoms. But if you are the experimental type, why not. 

EASY THRIFTS - MY PHP88 WATCH IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MY POLO AND PANTS COMBINED

Even before I became a personal style and fashion blogger, for those people who know me personally, they would tell you that I am an expert in Ukay-ukay. Well, who wouldn’t be when you grew up going to Carbon to thrift shop with your mother, right? I can still vividly remember when I would still go to the ukay-ukay with only Php100 in my pocket. I would save up money from my baon in school so I can go thrift shopping. Anyway, fast forward to present - now my mother scolds me for buying so much stuff in the ukay-ukay. Hahaha Mom, you should blame yourself for introducing me to ukay-ukay. 

BOHOL'S LITTLE NEW ZEALAND

More than the white beaches in Panglao Island, the shy but equally lovable tarsiers, the spine tingling adventure rides in Danao, the tourist friendly island hopping in Tubigon, and the historical visit to century old churches, Bohol has hidden treasures that are still waiting to be discovered by the traveloving you. Luckily, I had the opportunity to explore more of Bohol last summer. 

THE HEALING HILLS OF UBAY, BOHOL

"I have just found out that my partner cheated on me. A week after the break up, there were still times when I couldn’t help myself but to break into tears. I wanted to get away. I was feeling suffocated and helpless. I wanted a change of scenery. And I wanted to forget about my life in the city even for just a day. I got so beaten down that the only way that could keep me sane that time was to travel."

I ABANDON FRIENDS WHEN I AM IN LOVE

Most of us make a mistake in abandoning our friends when we are in a relationship. Would you agree?

THE HARDEST BREAK UP I HAD TO MAKE

top-cebu-mens-fashion-blogger-almostablogger.jpg

NO BREAK UP IS EASY. Whether it be with a lover or a friend. It’s more than the sleepless nights, the lack of appetite, the tears in your pillow, the hugot playlists, and the “don’t- disturb-me” sign on your door. Because one can never be prepared to break up with someone you adored, treasured and loved. Breaking up with friends isn’t the easiest commitment to make. But oddly enough, when you grow much older you tend to make your circle small. You choose the people you invite into your life - whether they are good or bad for you. In doing so, you should remember that you have the power to choose who you let go and who you choose to stay. 

CAKECHELLA AT 10 DOVE STREET SM SEASIDE CEBU

I HAVE JUST ATTENDED COACHELLA! WELL, I ALMOST DID! HAHAHA 
But please can I call myself a coachellite now? A Coachellite is someone who attends to Coachella. Okay, I won’t pretend to be such but I can definitely say, with confidence and integrity, I AM A CAKECHELLITE! Hahaha you must be really confused now! Well, on my defense, 10 Dove Street at SM Seaside opened with a Coachella Festival inspired event they called “CAKECHELLA”. And since I was there to cake party, I am a certified Cakechellite. :) 

A LIFE LESSON LEARNED IN LANDERS

CEBU-MENS-FASHION-BLOGGER-ALMOSTABLOGGER-LANDERS.jpg

Forrest Gump said “My mom always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” But one wise lady once told me that “Life is like a supermarket. You are given a lot of choices. It’s up to you to choose what’s good for you.” In this case, it’s a Superstore. Landers Superstore has finally opened its doors to the Queen City of the South, Cebu. When I attended the VIP Preview last May 7, 2017, I can’t help but be reminded by what the wise lady shared. What did she really mean by those simple yet meaningful words?

HEY GUYS! Well I have received a lot of messages about part one of this post. And surprisingly, I haven’t received any hate mail, yet!  Hehehe Some of my blogger friends in Cebu shared a thing or two about their observations as well. Since this might be the last part of this insider report, hahaha, this is going to be UNCENSORED! NO HOLDS BARRED!

This is a two part special of a project that I have been working on for the past few days. I may lose friends because of this post but this is what blogging is all about. I have only been active to blogging for a year now and in that span of time, I think I have fairly observed the different types of people in the world of blogging - the GOOD and the BAD! So here is part one,
