Shopping, but not really.

This job is fun despite our sore hands and arms from carrying heavy paperbags. Lol. Met up with Jear again today to finish our pull-outs for our Friday shoot for a big publication. We keep on reminding each other that we should be doing this for fun and not for anything else. If it becomes too stressful or we feel a little anxious and pressured we recite our "motto" out loud. Hehe. Anyway, here are some photos from today...

@ Gaupo, Greenbelt 5--major shoegasm.

emotions galore? It's you already with the fur collar! Hihi.

We also pulled out from SM Makati (thank you Kathy), Aranaz (thanks Rosanna and Amina!) and Aldo accessories. 

 @Aldo where we also saw Bang Pineda and Alyanna Martinez.

 ambigat ah

We spent our time just laughing, joking around, and going into each store asking for their contact persons. It's always fun spending the day with my ka-tandem extraordinaire!:) I also spent like an hour sulking for not being able to buy the cute black Zara wedge that's on sale for P2900. Mich disapproved. I'm sad :(

hungry much? hehe

Forgot the name of the resto. Sorry! But the food is yummy and cheap.

I'm also a 'lil sad coz I had to turn down a styling gig for Wedding Essentials magazine next week (4 days in Bohol! Damn.) coz of the Depot Fashion shoots. :( Sorry Darz luv. Have fun with Pia (a friend/classmate from FIP, she's gonna rock it!:) I just love how our class supports each other. We help each other with projects, pull-outs--ain't that how it's supposed to be? I know this is a dog-eat-dog industry, but we refuse to be eaten alive by the "system". I for one am so happy with how far Jear has come. He's gonna be styling for a major brand's press kit soon. (Clue: everyone's favorite brand--think Kate Moss). He's also the best supporter anyone could ever have. We always do self-checks coz we don't like how others have become after doing huge projects or after they've become well-known. Maybe it also helps that we try not to make this our "life". We all have other jobs (ones we can't ever let go) aside from this. We still call ourselves hobbyists. After all, we're only doing this for fun! If it's not fun anymore, then I guess it's time to quit. Do you agree?:)

That's it! Have to sleep early (early for me is before 5am). Busy day again tomorrow. Sending my love to all of you.

P.S. Got featured again on Spanish online magazine VANIDAD! :) Yipee


HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beb ANA!!!! 

You know how much we love you. Continue being the angel that you are.  See you soon. :)


  1. At the end of the day, it really is about loving what you do and the rest comes naturally. Sometimes working in fashion can be disheartening but when you think about all the fun, the stress just fades away. Keep up the good work attitude Aisa!:)

  6. Prepping for a shoot is ALWAYS exhausting. But once the day has come and you're there shooting already, everything will come into place and you'll be more than satisfied with the results of your hard work.

    Congrats to all of your styling gigs, babe! Hope there's more to come. Mwah. Mwah. :)

  7. Hi Aisa! Umaariba ka na talaga friend!!! I'm soo happy for you and jear. Kasi when I worked with you guys, wla talgang ere. Super bait din ni Jear, to think na there were a few people who were putting him down before! Look at jear now!!!! :) I like your attitude. Tama ka, ganun kasi nangyayari pag yung industry yung buhay mo, people become ferocious, at least kayo "hobbyists" so no pressure to put anyone down or get ahead of another. Keep it up aisa! I'm soo proud to be your friend. To aisa's haters, belat! :)
