Cher = Swag
Hello! I wore this outfit on one of the most happiest days of my life. I met my idol, the X Factor UK legend, (as Simon Cowell says) the ultimate brat, CHER LLOYD. To say the least, I was extremely happy. She. Is. My. Idol. And she hugged me.
As you can see in the picture, I’m wearing a lace tank top, high waisted shorts, and combat boots that you saw in my last post! Underneath, the white cami is just a basic from Kohls. This orange lace tanktop is from Pacsun. The black high waisted shorts are from H&M and they are my new favorite shorts. :) However, if you don’t like using a lint roller everytime you want to wear them… Don’t buy them. I absolutely LOVE using the lint roller. It’s so much fun. They just look so clean afterwards…. Hahaha the combat boots are from target and my favorite accessory (my headphones) were a christmas present. You can get them on ebay in pink, white, and lime green. They’re super light weight and are great quality. They have raving reviews, too!
The reason I wore my headphones was so Cher could sign them. But her manager wouldn’t let her sign anything. One day though… I’ll get her to sign them. IT WILL HAPPEN. Okay, bye guys! Keep being the amazing big sisters that you are!

I’m really into printed shorts right now. When I saw these at PacSun online, I fell in love with the print, but unfortunately, when these shorts came in the mail, the print was all out of whack and really crazy. Now, I don’t mind crazy - I’m obviously wearing them in this picture, but after thinking about it for sometime, I’m not completely satisfied with these Kirra shorts, so they’re going back. If the fabric was properly aligned, I would keep them, because the print is still really cute… but it’s not, and looking back at these pictures, I just feel like they look weird.
I ordered another pair of these Kirra shorts, but in a floral print (here). These are MUCH cuter and truer to the pictures online. Plus, I’m in love with how light and easy they are. It feels like I’m wearing pajamas! Love! I’m also going a little insane for these shorts from American Eagle (here) — And they’re having an additional 30% off clearance right now! Unfortunately, I’ve ordered not once, but TWICE, from ae.com in the past week… the most recent time was last night actually. I’ve got to stop this shopping madness!! But these shorts are just TOO CUTE!
Oh, yeah. By the way.. Yes, that is Cher Lloyd in the second picture. Justine, Jill, and I drove about an hour and a half to meet her outside of a radio station. If you don’t know who she is, just go to youtube, type in Cher Lloyd, and listen to her wonderful little voice. She was on the UK X Factor with One Direction and made it to the top 4, and now she’s making it big all over the world. She was the cutest little person - and so nice!! She gave us all hugs! Jill was pretty much freaking out. When she met her, she excitedly said, “Cher… You’re like… My idol…”
So yeah.. that’s pretty much it. What do YOU guys think about the printed shorts trend? Hate it or love it?

What can I say? I was in a hurry to pick up Jilli from school that I couldn’t find the right & cuter footwear for this attire. I apologize, what was i thinking! lol. My outfit is cute from the knees and up, so please ignore anything below that lol.
Cute outfit for a nice, hot summer day. This is actually my first attempt that I’ve tried in tucking in my top for an every day outfit. In the past, I never did because I always thought I looked bad. But here I decided to give it a try because my top was actually really long and if I just let it flow, it would’ve looked like I was wearing no shorts lol. But all is well & I’m happy that I finally pulled it off. Perhaps it was all in my head, no? (:
The Fedora was a special touch to this outfit, I actually took Jilli’s helpful advice & wore it because the sun was blazing like a bitch that day (sorry for the foul language) and I didn’t want to get sunburn on my face again like I did at Jacquie’s graduation. So, if it’s extremely hot outside and the sun is blazing down angrily from the heavens, please be safe by applying some sunscreen (carry it in your purse so if you needed you can apply some more), wear sunglasses & a hat & most importantly carry a bottle of water to keep hydrated! Summer is finally here, so go outside & enjoy it!(;
Hi, there. I’m Katniss Everdeen, and I like climbing trees.

Nah, I’m just Jill. I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. My last week of school is the week of finals. So I’ve been SUPER busy. And tired. I’ve literally got a total of 6 hours of sleep in the last few days. It’s crazy that on the last days we have the biggest tests of the school year. Now that they’re over… It doesn’t feel like summer. It just feels like an extended weekend.
Now my outfit! The weather was absolutely beautiful with a bit of a breeze. I felt like wearing white shorts to show off the rest of my outfit! The boots are actually Justine’s but… They make the outfit, don’t you think? They’re also from the children’s section! As you can see, they are very good for climbing trees..
As you can also see, I am a fan of The Hunger Games. I read that trilogy in like a week. Team Peeta, anyone? :) My favorite line is from Catching Fire is when Katniss says, “Stay with me?” And then Peeta responds, “Always.”
Sigh. How romantic.
Hahaha again, sorry for not posting in awhile. That’s all my fault. Check again soon for Jacquie’s post!
See you soon, big sisters!

This past weekend I had my graduation party, and a ton of family and friends came over to celebrate with me! Most, if not all, of my really close friends came too, which is rare since I live really far from everyone. My one friend and my cousin offered to take pictures and DJ for me as my graduation present, and it turned out to be such a hit! The music was really good, and there was a photobooth kind of thing that was a lot of fun. They would take pictures of me with my family and friends, and then everyone would get an immediate print out free of charge! My mom grilled some hot dogs and burgers; my grandmother cooked some Filipino dishes; my relatives brought some food also.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a big party for just me, and lately, I’ve been feeling really unappreciated, unaccomplished, and unintelligent regardless of the fact that I just graduated from college. I kept comparing myself to people who are going to medical, vet, or grad school in the Fall while I’m taking a year off before applying to school again. I felt like I was at a standstill, and everyone was moving forward. Everyone’s going off to school again to become professionals, whereas I’m staying home getting no calls back from jobs that I apply to and taking care of my siblings. There aren’t many 22-year-olds that I can relate to when it comes to this… trying to be more independent, but having others depending on you. Living a kind of soccer-mom lifestyle with the kids in bed by 9 PM while others are traveling to different countries or bar-crawling with their friends.
Let me get this straight: I don’t hate the way I’ve chosen to live. I don’t dislike taking care of my siblings. I don’t dislike staying home with my family rather than hanging out with friends. I don’t regret taking a year off before going to school. But I do lose myself sometimes. I forget who I am, and what I want to do, because I’m so busy making sure that my siblings have a solid foundation early on in their education so that things are easier to understand later in life. In the Philippines, a lot of older siblings end up dropping out of school so that they can work to pay for their siblings to finish their schooling… Your social life is just something you have to sacrifice a little in order to make sure that your family is okay. I don’t regret that; I just get really lost, especially when I feel that my hard work towards them remains unacknowledged.
So to have this big party this weekend with good company, good food, and lots of presents just for me was extremely overwhelming. I finally saw all of the love and support that I have from so many people for reaching this milestone in my life… and I felt extremely blessed. It actually moved me to tears seeing that so many people were here for me, and it’s recharged me in a way.. and I’ve realized that different people take different paths to their individual destinations. What I’m doing is what I need to be doing, and in due time, I’ll be as successful as others around me.
