Wearing Blue But Not Feeling Blue

I'm so eager to update this blog and make another post so I didn't wait for a day anymore. I want to take advantage of my time doing nothing. I'm actually doing this blog post while downloading movie, just to make use of my time. Anyway this is going to be another post from my post debut shoot (if you were able to check the first one, you'd know).

I'm wearing an Aqua Blue Gown. Bedded top and raffles at the bottom. It's supposed to look like a high-low dress but we weren't able to make one  like that because of the fabric used. I still like the design though with a high slit at the middle to show off my silver pumps.

And this is how it looks like when I walk. The feels of walking on a runway with this stunning gown, I just can't contain :)

Dancing on this gown isn't a bad idea at all. I looked youthful and carefree doing it plus the calmness of the place. Well it's perfect!

I obviously got tired so I sat there and posed still. But I must admit, I felt like a kid just fooling around and having fun. So this place was like a playground. Taking off my shoes while seated there would have been a better idea. Just sayin' :)

And yes some close-up shots and candid as well. My photographer did my make-up and my hair, just same as the previous one.

That would be all for this blog post. Thank you for dropping by. Hope you leave your comment too. Lots of love :">

Princess in my own Fairytale

Hello everyone! Wow it feels good to be back. I've been so busy with my acads so I wasn't able to update my blog anymore. But since it's our semestral break, I want to spend time with you guys. So here's a really late post of my post debut shoot and thanks to my awesome photographer, sis Dei for a real good job.

I'm wearing here my pink gown which I used for my debut. It's a simple ball gown with embedded top and layers of tulle and galaxy fabric. 

I'm a wearing a 3-inch close shoes which is the same color of my gown.

 I'm really having fun doing the shoot despite of the very hot weather. The gown is flowy so it didn't matter if I tossed it like that in the air. Even if my skin felt like it was burning I still kept on posing for the camera. I just love the setting of this shoot to ruin it for a sunburned skin :)

I still remember doing this shoot while some people were watching. They must be wondering what's this for. I mean the place was a public park and I was there wearing a gown and doing poses like those. I was laughing at the back of my mind during that time.

I love the stairs, like really love it. It feels like it's gonna bring me to my very own castle or palace or whatever <3

Did I say how great I am at doing candid shots? Those shots when you don't have to look at the camera but do the other way around. I think my best shots are my candid shots most of the time.

Do you see the drama in there? I was supposed to wear the crown. It was my crown when I won as Ms. YFC-UST 2013. But sis Dei told me not to put it on anymore because it would overdo my look. So we decided to do this to still take a picture of it.

B & W pictures never go old. The photo looks vintage and classy :">

I think this would be all for this blog post. I really missed you guys and I'm hoping to post more of my post-debut shoot. Hope you enjoy reading. Please post your comment below, it would be highly appreciated :) Lovelots :*

Nina's A Decade and Eight (Debut Special)

We went out of town for a couple of days that is why I wasn't able to update my blog. I'm sorry guys if I kept you waiting.

Because I owe you a lot of blog posts, let me give you a special blog for today :"> Sounds fun huh?

It is every girl's dream to be a princess. Almost everyone experienced watching fairy tales, I did! I had collections of Disney movies when I was a kid, my Mom bought it for me. I remember watching Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty many times, I almost memorized the lines. Disney movies made me believe in magic, in one true love, in prince charming, in happy ending. That's how great the impact was to me. That's why when I reached my legality as woman, I wanted it to be extra special and magical. I'm talking about my debut. So I'm gonna post in here some of my debut pictures :)

So basically the theme of my debut is Summer Masquerade and my motif is pink and purple.

The photos were used for my tarpaulin and invitations.

Before the party starts, we had to take advantage of the beautiful sky for our background. The photographer did pretty well in these photos.

Message from Tatang. No he's not mad. It's just his nature. You should have listened to him, he had the best message with all the "p*tangina" lines because it's his expression.

Touching birthday message from my Mom and it took her almost 15 minutes to finish it and left us crying the entire time she's talking.

A moment to thank everyone who made my debut extra special and extra memorable. I didn't ask for one like this but thanks for giving me one. I'm very blessed to experience such wonderful event of my life and it wouldn't be possible without my Mom who did almost everything, she had more stressful days and nights than me which even caused her alopecia. To my Kuya Veejay and Ate Ilyn for providing the cake and photobooth. Thanks to Kuya Pat for the three beautiful gowns, I felt like a real princess. Thanks ate Vicky for the balloons and other decorations. Ate Lanie for the tarpaulins and layout for my invitation. Thanks tita Beth for my invitation. Thanks ate Dei for my pre-debut shoot. Thanks kuya Ogie for the yummy lechon. Sorry no pics of the food. Thanks ate Soc for being the host of the night. Thanks Harley for being my dance partner. Thanks Lhabzj Jon for my hair and make-up. Thanks to my relatives, my friends, childhood friends, elementary, high school, college friends, to my YFC family who had the biggest crowd. Thanks to all my friends from Binangonan, Baguio, Isabela and other places for being with me on my special day. Thanks to the people who sent their video greetings all the way from US, Canada, New Zealand and more. Thank you everyone, I know these words wouldn't be enough but I have to because I feel very happy and grateful. Above all, I thank God for another blessed year with all these people in my life.
