Unlucky at the #DBSNauticalChristmas Party

The Davao Bloggers Society Christmas Party was held last December 7, 2019 at Home Crest Hotel. The theme was “Nautical Christmas” but I never had the chance to prepare a bongga outfit due to time constraints, so I only wore what was already available in my closet that was close to nautical. And yet , I was unlucky because I never got chosen to be a finalist for best dressed. Of course, everyone in the event were dressed to the nines. My outfit was nowhere near how bongga their outfits were. If I only had the time, I would have worn a Philippine Navy uniform lol.

This post is long overdue! Wore this outfit last June for our Acquaintance Party which had “Casino Night” as its theme. I had no idea what to wear, I even considered wearing the basic Verna formula which consists of t-shirt + shorts + sneakers or slides. As a guest in a casino, you are expected to look a certain way. I googled some outfits that I can wear and most of them are suits, sparkly dresses or feather-y skirts. I don’t wear formal clothes that much, only when specifically told to do so, or the event requires me to wear one. I don’t even have a dress watch! Good thing I had these clothes ready for me to wear, I didn’t have to spend a single penny! So, what do you think of this look?

My newest chocolate discovery: Xocolate by FEDCO

I’m not very much into sweets but I really do like eating chocolates. I tend to eat chocolates whenever I study, since  they give me the energy boost I need to keep myself awake when reading. However, eating chocolates can cost me a hefty amount of money from my school allowance. Good thing I discovered one that is locally made and is cheaper than most chocolates I crave!
