Like a Hurricane.

I attended a food tasting event made possible by Caffe Bene together with my friend, Kim Nieves. It was a fun start for my day even though I slept for only 3 and a half hours. Lately, my schedule stopped me from attending social gathering that was why I was very eager to grace this event. After the event, we decided to take snapshots of our OOTD's.
We went straight to Eastwood Park to shoot our outfits. It was quite windy as we walked along the area. Our hair was blown like a hurricane and had it on the opposite directions; left to right and right to left. Just like love, someone will come into your life and will turn things upside down. It will hit you right in front of your face and will blow you up until you are speechless and unable to breathe. Yeah, love is like a hurricane, a sweet disaster that I cannot wait to experience.
Details - Cardigan and Shirt (H&M Philippines), Leather Bag (Salvatorre Mann), Pants (Uniqlo Ph) and Loafers (Zalora Ph).
For now, I have not seen the one but if someone will come up, I will grab the chance. I am deeply hoping that it will not take forever for me to be found, I want to be rescued and be loved (insert emoticons here).

White Kicks for the Entire Week.

A pair of kicks has been one of the most essential pieces for fashion forward guys. Admit it or not most lads are buying a pair of sneakers being used for training, workouts, running and even dates. If you have seen the last post I created about black shoes, this time, I will be laying on the table the best white shoes to dig this season.  
1. Nike Air Max 90 Triple Leather. Talking about variety, Nike never stops reinventing their Air Max to please its fans. These full white, leather-made shoes are completely dressed in durable, upper skin in an iconic profile giving a retro look with an outstanding impact protection.
2. Adidas Consortium Tubular Runner. These premium kicks with a crisp white color enable the wearer to look good as he walks on. This innovative version of the Adidas Tubular comes up with a well-improved and constructed breathable mesh base overlaid with a suede heel cage and synthetic snakeskin accents. The lace adds up another accent with its flecked-rope design.
3. Adidas X Raf Simmons Response Trail 2 Pack. There is something about this pair that makes me go crazy. As Raf Simmons shoots up another collaboration with Adidas, this is the finished product! The sneakers feature a well-detailed, tonal body and midsole with enlarged TPU handles clipped to the rear. This pair of shoes can be partnered with anything from casual to an avant-garde inspired outfit.
 4. New Balance ML574. My favorite pair among the bunch. This reinvented classic ML574 has been revamped in all "White Instinct" to create an ultimate clean aesthetics. The upper is rendered completely in premium leather finishing with a soft padding inside and rubber outsole round out this tonal design. 
 5. Puma Trinomic R698. Another way to celebrate wearing these white trainers from the brand's Crackle Pack. This pair of Puma R698 is well made with rich leather upper as it featured cracked TCU overlays. A greater inspiration on why you need to hit the streets wearing this with your full outfit.

These are my top 5 picks for white shoes. If you have any suggestions with some white pair of shoes for me to add on this blog, just post your comment below. Hope to hear from you!

The Weekend Workout.

Sunday has been my favorite day because I can spend it by playing volleyball. Yes, you read that right! Aside from its physical benefits, it is one of my best ways of meeting new people and friends who shared the same passion as I do. It is fun when we are sharing every technique we know and learn more from there.
Volleyball has been my way of relieving stresses being brought by work, problems and a lot more. It is my best method of releasing the tensions inside of me. If I will not be able to dig and pass balls on weekend, my entire week will be disorganized. This is one of the reasons why I always make a way to play and sweat everything out every Saturday or Sunday.
Details: Snapback (New Era Cap Ph), Top (H&M) and Running Shorts (Adidas Ph).
I do not know about you but whatever it is that can clear your mind and remove your blues away, do it. As long as you are not hurting anyone or yourself and enjoying what you are doing, you are good to go. Cheers to an incoming long weekend, Stay safe!

5 Black Kicks I am eyeing for lately.

In this generation, it is fun to see that the transition of men's stylish footwear evolves from suede shoes to running pairs. It is quite obvious that being fashionable is link to becoming fit. Moreover, wearing sneakers is not just about wearing it inside any fitness center but can be worn on the streets. 
1. Adidas ZX Flux "Gradient" Pack. Of all the ZX Flux Collection that this brand released, this is one of the favorite pairs I want to have before the Christmas starts. With the transition of black to aqua blue, this will be a great pair to sport on the streets. This pair is combined with the ZX 8000 outsole with torsion system with a smooth woven upper. The laces provide contrast and cage heel for added stability.
2. Nike Air Max GS 1. If there is one pair as of this moment that makes me go crazy, I think these runners are the answer. With a little twist on its design emphasizing the brand's logo with a gray hue, this will make your streetwear styling experience on point. 
3. Puma Trinomic XT2 Plus Pack. This dope collaboration with a rising South Korean streetwear brand "thisisneverthat" is what all the kick lovers are waiting for. The pack comes with 2 distinct design, the first pair with a predominantly black element with a mesh base while the other is finished with a camouflage design with an army print base. The pairs are inspired by the diversity and contrasts of Seoul's landscape.
4. New Balance MS 620. There is nothing as stylish as a simple pair of black sneakers. This fresh standout basic piece is a must have this season. The pair is crafted with super-soft suede uppers with breathable mesh insets topped with logo detailing at the side and cotton laces, the silhouette is now being completed with a super padded ankle collar, ENCAP midsole technology for support and finished with a textured rubber sole for optimal traction.
5. Reebok Ventilator X Mighty Healthy. Collaboration between 2 brands has been a trend nowadays. Another good news comes from Reebok showcasing their new kicks. The sneakers are designed in Black, Carbon Grey and White color scheme. Featuring a Grey-to-Black upper built with premium suede that also includes a striped interior and sits atop of a speckled midsole.

There you have it! I will be updating you guys with the latest kicks to shop from time to time. Always stay tuned! :)

9 Reasons why Zenfone 2 Laser is a must have + OOTD!

All the time, I am using my SLR on taking snapshots for my blog. I always wanted clear high-res photos not because I wanted to make a good impression but due to my obsessive-compulsive attacks. Until recently, Asus Philippines sent me this sleek and chic Zenfone 2 | Laser to review. At first, I was hesitant because I am not a tech blogger but because I love taking photos for my OOTD, I tried and tested it.
1. Superb camera lens. One of the strengths of Zenfone 2 | Laser was its auto-focus capability. It can accelerate close-ups photography, compensating for the extra distance created by the lens receding during framing. Me and my friend have done our shoot around 5pm and it was awesome to see that the phone abled to adjust with the natural light and produced a good selfie shot.
2. Selfie-friendly. Its built-in application was called real-time beautification mode which provided skin softening, brightening, blush. eye enhance, cheek thinning and color correction. Moreover, the resolution was superb. The rear camera had an 8 megapixel capacity while the back camera had 52 MP. It had the same level as shooting an OOTD using an SLR. 
3. Tough display for a phone. This phone featured a 5-inch HD (720x1820p) and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which offered vibrant colors, good brightness level and wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees. If you were up for watching movies or series using this, this will give a 5-star rating experience.
4. Battery. I am very particular with phone's battery because I hate bringing a power bank. Since I love hooking up a pair of earplug to play music while I am traveling, I will really appreciate if the phone will keep up with my jam. Knowing Zenfone 2 | Laser 3,000 mAhLi-Polymer, it can give up to 36 hours of use while on playing music, 3G and same even if the Wifi is turned on all throughout that period. 
5. The Sound Performance. Talking about music, Zenfone 2 | Laser's speakers are constructed with five layers of magnets in a large chamber so the bass sound is much better than the traditional ones. Moreover, the phone has an AudioWizard 2.0 which can easily adjust on user's ears depending on what environment he is currently in.
6. Call Quality and connectivity. This phone has an enhanced Noise Zero Talk technology which helps eliminate background echo and reducing noise for crystal call speech. This will enable clear understanding of each conversation even in a rowdy environment. Zenfone 2 | Laser can max the download speed up to 150Mbps depending on the provider you are taking advantage. This phone is good for online movie streaming and youtube watching!
7. Privacy Protection. We all want our private space most especially on our Social Media accounts. This phone has a SnapView capability which can help shield someone's personal apps, photos and files. You can easily hand over your phone for someone to check it without checking in some of you private accounts.
8. Sensitive, responsive touch experience. This phone is one of the fastest in the market with a record-breaking touch response time of just 60mms. It does not have any lag which can enable your gaming experience on point!
9. User-friendly. For a non-techie user like me, the phone has an easy mode which makes every browsing a walk in the park and fun. It can allow you to effortlessly enlarge texts and simplified the layout based on the user's preferences. 
Details - Zenfone 2 | Laser (Asus Ph), Buttoned Down, Tee and Pants (Uniqlo Ph) and Shoes ( Nike Ph)
Here is the difference between Asus' Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 2 | Laser.
This phone was one of the greatest addition to my selfies and photography. I cannot wait to roam around the area and take snapshots. For more information, updates, sales and events, you can check Asus's website (
