Meet the Blogger: Vern Enciso


Fresh graduate, Vern Enciso of VV, has all the time she has to share her love for fashion and all things in between. Looks like time management is not a problem to this 21 year old pretty, sophisticated, and classy Filipino top Fashion Blogger. Lots of simple yet casually elegant combinations - jeans, flats, and her designer bags are her favorite pieces from her closet but you'll be surprised on how she can pull of such a statement combination.

Now that she has all the free time in her hands, travelling, some modeling gigs and keeping us inspired are what keeps her busy lately. Vern will still continue to conquer our hearts with her unforgettable, chic, and bold fashion statements.

Tim Ho Wan Philippines

 

Hong Kong's Tim Ho Wan opened its first ever store here in the Philippines located in SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City last May 20, 2014. Lawrence, my boyfriend, and I had the opportunity to try it last June 22 which makes this post a backlog. Delayed but it's better late than never. Lol! Before you could go in, you have to wait in a long line, approximately about 20-30 minutes waiting but the line is fast moving. I believe that it's strictly no reservations accepted, so everyone's expected to line.



So here's what we had:








Order from first to last photo: Congee with Lean Pork, Century Eggs and Salted Egg / Vermicelli Roll with Sweet and Sesame Sauce / Steamed Egg Cake / Steam Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp / Wasabi Salad Prawn / Spring Roll with Egg White / Dumpling Teochew Style


Food were super delicious, my personal favorites where the Steamed Egg Cake and the Steam Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp. Although, I don't recommend you eating here with an empty stomach, servings were a little that will enable you to order more and will make your bill cost more. But all in all, Lawrence and I were super satisfied. 


Until the next food trip!

5 things I learned from Fashion Bloggers

image

I don’t have much photos to post here yet, so here’s one from my chictopia account (photo taken a year ago). It was one lazy afternoon at work, so I’ve decided to go back to my previous posts.

I’ve been a fashion fangirl ever since my mom introduced me to reading fashion blogs. Yup, my mom reads fashion blogs and she was a food blogger too. Lol. Since then, I am very much hooked up with fashion blogger’s urls. It’s kinda my way to relieve stress and to kill time.

Here are 5 things I learned from different bloggers:
  1. It is okay to repeat clothes - THIS! Bloggers also repeat clothes and there’s seriously nothing wrong with it. You just have to mix match them in different combinations and style, just let your creativity flow.
  2. Comfort before style - Camille Co said in her blog post that when she travels, she always put comfort first before style. I’m a commuter and this tip is very relevant to me. You should ALWAYS be comfortable in what your wear.
  3. Confidence is the new sexy - How will you carry your style if you’re to shy to flaunt it? Just be confident, keep your chin up and embrace greatness,
  4. Style is unpredictable - Bloggers experiment too. I noticed that they always try something different. I also believe in this philosophy, a person can never stick to one genre of styling. Fashion is broad so you have to try different styles too.
  5. Fashion tips really help - Absorb the good reads in the fashion blog posts. Sometimes even the simplest details help - like how to wear this to that and such. Bloggers give amazing fashion tips and they serve as fashion inspirations as well.
Did you learn significant things from bloggers too? What are they? :-)

According to PAGASA, the rainy season has officially started here in the Philippines but it doesn’t mean that you have to keep those shorts and skirts away. Probably, all your sweaters and hoodies are ready for the season, but you can still pair them up with a cute pair of shorts. For me, shorts and skorts will always be a trend. I mean, they will NEVERR go out of style. They’re like the to-go-to outfit for everything.

Dinner Date with Camille Co

For my first ever blog post, I’ll be sharing my experience that happened last April 30, 2014. I know it’s been months months back but it’s better late than never right? Lol. Okay so I was one of the lucky girls that Camille Co invited to be part of her Birthday/Anniversary Dinner celebration over at the Early Bird Breakfast Club located at Century Mall, Makati City.

I was not the only one who got lucky, if you’ve seen my blog post before about the #TeamCamilleMajolicaFaceOff, you’ll know the girls who’s with me. Jam, Joy and Mhaica were invited too. Yay, Camille’s Angels were reunited. But unfortunately, Chrizel was at Bicol so she wasn’t able to join.

So what’s a dinner date without the food? Early Bird Breakfast Club served us a 3 course meal: Asparagus Salad for the appetizer, Adobo Sunrise for the entree and, Chocolate and Ginger Torte for dessert! This is definitely not just a dinner, but a feast! We were all so full and the food there was just amazing.

image

There were 30 of us who got invited and I got to meet some of them. Perks of attending these kinds of events, you get to meet new friends!

After dinner, Camille did told in her blog that a surprise awaits for the 30 lucky angels who will be invited to this once in a lifetime event and it was her Camille Tries To Blog App! We had the first dibs in taking a peek inside the app. And now she already revealed it, I hope you have the app installed in your smart phones too. Once the big announcement has been told, we all sang he a happy birthday and blew her birthday candle.

After the event, we got the opportunity to take lots of selfies and groufies. Just to clarify things, I wasn’t seated on her lap okay? I was seated on the arm rest of her chair. Lol! We also got the chance to gave our little scrapbook gift. Inside the scrapbook are bunch of photos and our messages for her. We hope she liked it.

This is seriously one of the best highlights of my 2014. I’m also looking forward to more great moment to come. Till the next post!
