Sigh Styles Turns Two! + Sigh Styles Concept for Sunstar - 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Time glided fast, and now Sigh Styles is already TWO!
My latest contribution to Sunstar newspaper came out perfectly in time for my 2nd year celebration.

If you can remember my very first contribution to Sunstar, which came out on April 2013, it was about 2013's Color of Year < EMERALD >.

On January of this year, I volunteered to Ms. Kara Mae Noveda to do a feature on 2014's Color of the Year < RADIANT ORCHID >.  The shoot did came out late as I was searching for the impeccable collaborators.

On June 2, 2014, the 'radiant orchid' photo shoot I collaborated with Divine Orlina Tayrus and Christine Cueto was featured in Shopping Bag section of Sunstar newspaper entitled HEY JUNE!

The next 5 photos made it on print.

It is a captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones. 
The color emanates great love, joy and health.  Such a wonderful color isnt' it?
I have no second thoughts in inviting Divine to do the make-up and model for the Radiant Orchid feature.  I knew she is the most befitting muse for this shoot.  On Sigh Styles first year feature in this blog, Divine was the model and make-up artist too, see HERE.

When I conceptualized for this photo shoot, what was in my head is the idea of wearing Radiant Orchid all year-round.  So my preparation revolved on outfits for the four seasons of the year.

the outfit:
 purple longsleeve knit dress studded with faux diamonds + white boots & white beanie embellished with holographic sequins (not seen in pic)

the outfit:
floral print in purple mullet dress with trail + purple floral headpiece

the outfit:
lavender romper + lavender sneakers
 summer outfit accessorized with white crochet scarf worn as bandana + purple/pink chiffon drop tier earrings

- FALL -
the outfit:
purple tier halter satin dress embellished with sequins + purple pants + black cape with faux rossettes on sleeves
+ purple earrings and necklace set by SUGAR KISSED

Would you agree that the photos are all picture-perfect? These pretty photos are captured by Christine Cueto, such a talented young artist.

A Dozen Unfiltered Reasons Why Bangkok,Thailand Is Always My Place To Be

People nowadays have abundant, diverse resources that traveling outside one's home country has been a typical option for holidays or even for a long-weekend vacation.  And if you are from the Philippines, the accessible places and, by fact, the more affordable options would be those destinations nearby such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.

Yes, Thailand! My second favorite country, of course, next to the Philippines.  The country has a massive land area. But with the four times that I have been there, most of my adventures were spent only in Bangkok. In spite of it, I know that there are still numerous places to explore in the city of Big Mango.
I have overflowing stories to share about my trips to Bangkok, with brimming enthusiasm.  I have had several detailed blog posts about my trips since 2011, 2013 and 2014.  Although this post and the pictures you will be seeing are #throwback shots, I hope to still provide you with an overview of what the city has to offer and be able to…

How To Be Comfy Yet Chic to a Winter Vacation in Hong Kong

I always desire to have a winter vacation in Hong Kong.  Though, I actually have experienced it last 2013 with my family, see HERE,  but such desire never ceases and is always haunting me. Whenever December arrives, the hopes reach its acme. Thankfully,  January of this year, my wishful thinking and flaming desires turned to reality, again!

Why have a Vacation on Winter time? 
Despite I easily get cold feet and hands when temperature drops, I am so in love with winter time as it provides an entirely fresh sense of being assuredly away from home, which screams, you're on vacation! And, the fact that winter does not visit the Philippines makes the season more exciting.  More so, dressing-up for a winter season is such a fun and stimulating activity.  Even the thought of wearing my boots certainly thrills me.

Blending In With My Personal Style + Style Tips!

Transferring to a new location have initially distressed me. Everything was unaccustomed and I was back to zero, career-wise. Then, I was also in direly wanting to activate my Fashion Styling skills. The artist in me had a compelling fighting spirit. Why be afraid, why hide, why remain dormant? So, I went online and befriended creative minds alike.  And guess what? Last quarter of this year, I have successfully made my very first fashion styling collaboration with amazing Filipino talents in the field of photography here in Doha, Qatar and finally got acquainted with my online-turn-real-life friends: Eds Dela Cruz and Christine Lyn Espinosa.

Part of resettling is the embracing of foreign culture and adapting to their lifestyle which includes dressing up according to their norms.  If you have been following this blog, you might have known by now that my personal style has permanently gravitated to a direction that always had a touch of modesty. I prefer covering my extremities, wearing …
