That night I danced until I can dance no more.

i was going for that trashy/grungy hippie look.  trust me, i have no idea what i was doing.
my accomplices for Sinulog weekend! for the love of edm & having a good time!
the stage, what i came there for- AN21&Max Vangeli, the massive crowd, and one crazy edm worshipper
kick out the epic motherf*ck#r!

My obsession with electronic dance music is pretty much neck & neck with my addiction to the beach.  I would occasionally find myself watching the Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival aftermovies like they're big hollywood blockbusters.  And by "occasionally" i mean i watch it everytime i get a chance to which is quite often.  Yeah I know it sounds crazy, but i am crazy!  I would watch it over and over again hoping that when I go to catch some zzz's, I'd dream about actually being there, wasted and dancing like it's nobody's business.  And then I see myself & my friends waving the Philippine flag getting captured by the camera in slow motion like in the aftermovies.  I'd fist pump, stomp my feet, bang my head, til i can do no more.  I'd lose my voice from screaming the djs' names every time they step on stage to spin.  Aoki, Skrillex, Hardwell, Chuckie, Swedish House Mafia, Guetta, Avicii, Alesso, Laidback Luke, Zedd, Porter Robinson, are just some of the names I'd let out in a loud deranged scream.  But just like these festivals and the aftermovies, these dreams always come to an end and i'd wake up a loser.

The EDM gods must have pitied this loser.  A week ago, on Sinulog Friday, an epic outdoor dance party called LifeDance hit Metro Cebu.  I missed the first installment last year when i decided to go that crappy summer-ender beach party and I still recall bitching about it for months.  I wasn't going to miss the event a second time.  This probably was the closest thing to Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Fest!  Yes i know it'll pale in comparison with the other international music festivals for now but it clearly has the makings of becoming something massive- the place was packed!  I have to say I was not disappointed, I had a blast!  From the venue, the stage, the technical stuff (audio, lights, etc.), the staff, even down to the comfort rooms.  You can tell this thing was carefully thought of and planned.   And oh the dj's!  I loved each and every one of them- from the local dj's (loved all of them! made me dance even when no one else did! lol) to the international acts!  I danced 'til my legs got sore.  That's how hyped i was!  Thank you LifeDance!  Encore this summer maybe?  LOL

The friend, those festivals, and fashion.

Day 1 | LifeDance EDM Festival

Day 2 | Sinulog Festival
So here's my friend/officemate/accomplice during Sinulog weekend, working two different looks I created for her.  The key item for both looks- high-waisted denim shorts!  The one in the first photo is a DIY courtesy of myself, pat on my back- it came out really nice!  Found this pair of Levi's from a vintage clothes store we visited.  I love that it's in dark denim!  Cut it short, did some distressing and voila!  The floral print denim shorts in the 2nd photo was a steal!  It fit her perfectly!  Thank God for vintage clothes stores!

Wore the same pair of denim cutoffs from LifeDance on Sinulog day.  I have a fetish for worn-out, ripped, torn denim.  Guess I was right, this diy denim shorts just became my new fave!  From where I'm from, this Sinulog festival is the festival of all festivals.  People from all over the world country swarm the streets of Cebu for this annual revelry.  So you have to dress for the occasion- comfort over style.  In my case, I think I did both!

DIY Distressed Denim Cutoffs

all you need is an old pair of jeans, scissors, tweezers, patience & a little creativity!

the not-so-before and after shot
music festival ready!

"Stop! You have done enough damage!", screams this old, fugly, pathetic pair of jeans. The thing even called me "sadistic" at one point. Well, you should be thankful I revived you back into fashion life! And guess what, you might just have become my new fave pair of denim cutoffs!

And it was a very cold and plaid Wednesday.

Mondays, the beach, and drawing.

So I was sitting in my office desk one day and it was one of those slow-paced Mondays.  I haven't been to the beach for almost a month and that drove me a little nuts.  Yes, I'm exaggerating.  But really, I'm missing the beach a lot and I also miss drawing.  So out popped some sketch pad and coloring pens from one of the office drawers!
