Thank you Telebasura Design for the quick feature. They saw me wearing Telebasura in one of my outfit posts in my livejournal blog. Actually, I would have wanted to buy the larger, mixed color (black and white) fringe necklace with chains. However, I am a person who's very budget-oriented haha.

That time, I was dying to have a fringe necklace (it was a booming trend then, November 2009) so I just bought the cheapest one among the designs. I paired it with piled-on black chain necklace in order to put life to it.

So you see, I'm really frugal and practical when it comes to fashion and styling. I'm not the type who spends a lot just for a pair of shoes, a top or just a piece of clothing. When I splurge, I make sure I have items good for a week, complete from head to toe, on a 2k budget haha.

Speaking of being spotted, you can also catch me in tumblr (I recently opened one). I call it Style and Soul RAW. But more on soul this time, I think. There's a different kind of rawness in it, I speak my mind in a conversational way - so yes it is in Filipino (or Taglish since it's really conversational). Hello Filipino readers!

I'm as real as I can be here in blogspot (it's all about who I am). But heellooo?! In my ordinary day to day life, I really don't speak straight English unless it's acad-related (basically papers, essays, recitation, speech and the like).

I'm sort of plugging (shamelessly) my tumblr only because I really enjoyed myself - there's something about speaking your own (mother na, native pa) language. It gives a person more personality and life. Whatever's in my head goes straight to tumblr. Also, I enjoyed doing quick posts and reblogs!

I'm relatively new in tumblr. Do you have a tumblr account? If yes, comment here! I'll check it out and follow if I like. I want to follow people!
