Dry Black and Chuck

 Chuck is back as they always say! But not the Chuck you girls know, 
who is Chuck Bass but the Chuck of every boys and girls love. 

It's Chuck Taylor!

I love Converse Chuck Taylor since I was a freshie in High School. I love wearing them because they are really comfortable and very reliable especially if you will do some errands. You can wear these pair for a run, walk in the mall and even for a smart casual event. They could always give you the look that you want to express/showcase. Good thing I kept them for like eight years now and they are still wearable. I can still use them as if they were brand new. They are my second pair of Chucks!

I matched my diamond inner shirt with my plaid button down to make a good contradicting statements. Paired it with my faded blue jeans which for me will add a nice look in my outfit.

The design of my inner shirt. Diamond inspired with the small slave crown print that made it look very dapper!

To finish this look, I decided to wear my black canvas shoes with my brown printed socks. As I was telling you, Chuck Taylor is back, or should I say Chuck is always classic!

Lichtenstein and Armani

Roy Lichtenstein was a prominent American pop artist. During the 1960s, his paintings were exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City and, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist, and others he became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the basic premise of pop art better than any other through parody.

My heart was in glee when I saw this shirt that has the design of the famous comic strip that Roy Lichtenstein made. What makes the shirt really nice is the sequins that they put in it. :)

I was inspired to wear this shirt with my white pants from Folded and Hung and with my plaid button down from Emporio Armani. I wanted to look like a painter but turned out to look like a traveler! Hahahahaha!

The details of the shirt. Isn't nice?! :)
The shirt was from Robinsons Starmills Pampanga

Buttondown from Emporio Armani

 To add more details, I decided to wear all my "artistic rings" to match  for my outfit.

From left to right: Round ring from SM Department Store l Cross ring from Oygen l Tiger ring from Folded and Hung l Mask ring from Nayong Pilipino Clark 
and the block ring from SM Department Store.

This is the exact design of my shirt! Totally cool! So happy that I found it on Google!

Hope you guys learned something about my post!

Life as a Photographer

Most of my friends know that I am into photography since I was young. My dad is a photographer in our town. We used to have our own studio back then but decided to leave it when my Dad's friend tried politics and asked my dad to be his official photographer. My dad had been the official photographer of CW Ducut for about 10 years and it just stopped when CW Ducut wasn't lucky enough to win the elections to be the Governor of Pampanga.

I knew that I love photography when I was in fourth grade way back in 2003. I always bring my Dad's camera during our educational trips in Manila. Too bad wasn't able to save some pictures since we only use camera with films back then.

When I was in fifth grade my teacher asked me to join our school paper to be one of the photojournalist and luckily I was the Chief photojournalist. Joined different contests about Photojournalism and captioning until grade six and fortunately I was always on top. I was also  the Artist and Photojournalist of the year in my batch in the year 2004.

I continued doing photography until High school. I was in my third year HS when my teacher in my speech class asked me to join our school paper. And yes, I was the chiief photojournalist of my school paper until fourth year. I was able to join different contest, was able to rank first in the whole Pampanga and happy to represent it in the Regional level in the year 2008. Luckily, I was the Photojournalist of the year in my batch in the same year.

During my university days, photography had so much development with all the digital cameras that were introduced in our society. Photography has been everywhere. The competition has been really hard to all the photographers as well as for the aspiring ones. 

My classmates knew that I do photography because they can see it on my multiply account and sometimes on my computer. One day, my friend Michelle asked me to help her  to prepare for her debut on the summer of 2010. She asked me to organize her party in a reception hall in Angeles City. I was shocked when she told me that; though I had a little experience about organizing parties before. 

She asked me to make invitations, stands, tarpaulins and etc... We had our photo shoot for her guest book in Lakeshore. I never had a problem about the photo shoot because sometimes, my dad will ask me to assist him during his coverage for a debut, weddings, reunions and etc.. The photo shoot was a success and after a week I showed the sample lay out to Michelle and she was so happy.

The party was also a success. I was able to put up a Fabulous Las Vegas themed party. From the set up to the ambiance like you're really in Las Vegas with the production. From the small details like the costumes, cakes, giveaways and everything was  also related with the theme. (Photos will be uploaded on my next blog)

After this party, I received a lot of good feed backs with my professors, friends and colleagues. I received a lot of offers to make their invitations for their party, to help them think of a good theme and to make their special day a memorable one. 

During my Junior year in college, we had our culminating activity. My events management professor asked me together with my friend Ivan  to be the Chairperson of our batch for the upcoming event and fortunately, my batch mates, Ivan and I were able to put up a Disney themed event. And that was the HRM Night 2011: Happily Ever After. (Photos will be uploaded soon)

I was in my Senior year when my friend Edward asked me to join an organization about photography in our university which is the Hiraya Photography Society. I met a lot of friends in this organization. We share a lot of common interest in photography. We were able to put up a Photo exhibit where we can showcase our skills in photography. We were also able to put up a booth during our university week and showcase all the old cameras that we brought. It was like a mini museum of antic cameras. Haha! The College of Allied Medical Profession Pharmacy Department also asked us to shoot for their search for the next Mr. and Ms. Pharmacy 2011. 

My last work in photography was last November of 2011 when my colleague in college asked me to cover the photo shoot for our Contestants in the search for the Mr. and Ms. College of Business and Accountancy 2011. I've been so busy on the latter part of 2011 since I was a graduating student and the secretary of our department organization. As a graduating student, you have to balance your time doing your thesis, study with your other subjects and etc. Also, I joined the Summer Work and Travel of Dream Search International Inc. for this season. (Will blog the details about this soon)

January of 2012, I decided to join LookBook. This time, I was not the one who does the photo shoot but rather I ask my cousin or my friends to take pictures of my outfit. March of the same year, I had to leave our country and fly to the United States. I still ask my friends to take photos of my outfit there though. Haha! 

So that's it! Photography has a huge impact in my life. It has been my business for almost five years now and has been our Family business for almost 3 decades now. I can say that Photography runs in our Family! :)

Travel Photo Diary: Going Upper East Side

So this was my last day in NYC because the following day I flew to Chicago, IL.
This day was full of fun and exciting sight seeing around NYC.

And talking about Macarons, there was a free concert of the Maroon 5! Yes you read it right, A FREE CONCERT OF THE MAROON 5!! I was so happy to hear their songs live!
The concert was in Today Show. So it means the show was near the Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan!
