How to choose a basic outfit in less than 10 minutes!

Real talk: there are days where we get so lazy in the morning to pick out a decent outfit. Haha or is it just me?? Normally, I'd rush picking my outfit (it's usually the first piece of clothing I see) for school... When I was a kid, my mom taught me to prepare the night before, but I get so indecisive in the morning, I'd end up choosing a whole new ensemble!

Raise of hands if you're like me!! No? Um okay... Hahahaha (im a bloozer). Anywaaaay, if you raised your hand, I'm here to help you make your life better (or your mornings better) ;-)

Top from @preloved1001   |   Leather skirt from Penshoppe   |   Shades from Sunnies by Charlie (Zalora)   |   Bag from Grab (SM Dept Store)   |   Flats from (Huxley) Zalora

There's nothing more basic than black, white and greys! I personally think every girl should own items of clothing in this shade, because not only does it look good with anything, it's also super easy to style and mix and match. Besides, you can never go wrong with black... ;-) (or white for me). Just don't forget to add your pièce de résistance! I used red sunnies to bring a pop of color.

Random fact: I love Sunnies by Charlie merchandise (hahaha I use my pair everydayyy) but there's no Sunnies store here in Naga. But yay you can shop for it on Zalora :) Yaayyy and Sunnies launched their new collection so I can't wait to check out the new sunnies

When dressing up, you should also consider if there are dress codes or the place you're going to. Most schools have dress codes, and we all know how important it is to follow school policy. I really think this outfit is so on point to use in school, because if you have professors who are very strict with the dress code, you can throw in your pullover! Come night time, remove your pullover then you'll have a different look :)

Top from @preloved1001   |   Jumper skirt from Storenvy   |   Shades from Sunnies Studios (Zalora)   |   Heels from Parisian

I've been seeing a lot of black and white striped tee so it's only necessary that I'll include one here! :) Basic shouldn't be boring. Why use jeans when you can use a jumper skirt, right?? Haha that's so cute, tbh. Top if off with your favorite pair of wedge/heels and you're good to go! :)

I missed blogging!! Hahaha I'm sorry for going on a blog hiatus. I'll try to update at least once a week. Hey everyone! :)

Wattpad Wednesday: Cherry Knots

My friends would know that I am pretty much dependent on my cellphone, because it's pretty much my (a) mode of communication with everyone, (b) planner, and (c) my "Kindle".
If you'd ask me, Wattpad is probably one of the applications I use the most (next to Twitter)! I love how you can easily download books for free! :)

For this Wattpad Wednesday, I'm going to share to all of you one of my favorite short stories - Cherry Knots by hepburnettes.

Cherry Knots only has 12 parts which is perfect for quick reads when you're bored in school, in class (hahaha don't read while your teacher is discussing something!!), on your way home, etc. It's a story about how Declan and Eloise fell in love while mastering the art of cherry knotting.

I won't tell you their entire love story, because it's seriously going to be your loss if you won't read the story, no pun intended! The story is well-written, and there was never a dull part. As you progress through the story, you will want to learn how to tie a knot using a cherry (I know I did!), and wish that there were more chapters to it.

Comment down below your current read on Wattpad and let's exchange stories and stuff! Hahahah sounds like a book club!! Wooot :)

Ps. This is my first time writing something like this (and I honestly have no clue what I'm doing haha) so please leave suggestions in the comment box as to how I can improve this segment on my blog! Thanks everyone :D
