Blogging Burnout

You might notice that I've been posting less frequently lately. For two reasons:
1. Busy with my job (I'm working at a digital marketing company)
2. I think I'm having a blogging burnout.

What's blogging burnout? Basically, it means I have nothing to post. ( I haven't posted my Spring 2013 reviews yet, Haha!)

I read on http://www.lorensworld.com/life-work/avoid-blogging-burnout/ how to avoid blogging burnout.

Here are her tips:

  • Just UNPLUG. Yes, you read that right. Turn off your computer and go do something else. Something healthy or completely mindless. Go for a walk, hit up a yoga class, get a frozen yogurt – simply put: walk away.
  • Read an actual printed newspaper or magazine. Seriously! Remember magazines? The things before blogs? Sit down with that stack of neglected magazines, a glass of wine and read.
  • Ask your readers for ideas. Your readers are your biggest fans and they can help you avoid a blogging burnout more than anyone. So reach out and use the power of social media to kickstart ideas.
  • Write about the things you love – not just for clicks, but to share your passions.
  • Get out of town! Take a weekend trip away from it all. You’ll return refreshed and filled with stories (perfect for blogging).

Those are her tips to avoid a blogging burnout

There! Any other tips? :)

When I commute to work, I like listening to music. I really love dance music but lately I've noticed that even slow songs enchant me. Here are my top 5 songs that I keep hitting replay! :)

1. Ride by Lana del Rey- I LOVE LANA DEL REY! This song is sooooo sad and slow but I love it! When I listen to it, I feel all melancholic and this music video IS JUST EPIC!!!!

2. 212 by Azealia Banks- I know that it's been a year since it was released but I still haven't memorized the words. :( it's no SuperBass. it's superfast! haha!
3. Bad Girls by M.I.A. - I love M.I.A. This song has a different beat and I love that! It's very trippy and dancey at the same time. And it has the coolest music video ever!

4. Brokenhearted by Karmin- They're a great couple! Nick is sooo cute! And try checking out Carly's version of XFactor. It's like a Leona Lewis version.

5. Ghetto Baby by Cheryl Cole- this was written by Lana del Rey. It's like this inviting bad love into your life and the beat is sick! :)
Like Blims Fine Furniture here and check out the page for the mechanics! :)

I have always loved shoes! It's a woman's version of what a car is to men. Only shoes are cheaper.

Anyways, I took advantage of the 20% off discount when you have SM Advantage Card and got myself some Rajo! for Milanos shoes! Here are the pics!

I was planning to buy the purple loafers but the stitching is purple also. It didn't stand out. So, I chose the black one because of the gold stitching! Haha! I super love them all! AND I REMEMBER WHAT THAT METAL ON THE SHOES REMINDED ME OF! YSL SPRING 2012 SHOES! HAHA!

I love Rajo even more! :)
I hope he does more collaborations with Milanos! I'll be surely buying them! :D

Did you buy Rajo! for Milanos shoes? :)

Spring 2013 Fashion Week in a Nutshell

First of all, I'm sorry that it took me one week to post again. Haha! Been very busy lately but don't worry, I'm still making sure to perform my blogging duties. :)

I'm sure all you fashionphiles out there know what happened this fashion week. This fashion week has more drama than any fashion week ever with a lot of debuts since last season had a lot of "departures."

Let's highlight the special events of the season: (Photos from style.com)

1. Liberty at Alexander Wang- Liberty Ross shocked everyone when she walked at NYFW particularly Alexander Wang. And as a closer, Wang showed glow in the dark dresses! Perfect for those parties huh?

2. THE SUPE IS HERE! - Naomi Campbell opens Zac Posen's show.

3.  Burberry goes metallic- Burberry went with metallics in a lot of hues! Way to go Christopher Bailey! :)

4. Prada is turning Japanese - after the art deco collection, Miuccia Prada showed an array of Japanese inspired dresses completed with floral prints, floral sunglasses, and those shoes to die for!

5. Jil Sander is back at Jil Sander- Jil Sander is back at her own label and made sure she's back.

6. Beth Ditto performs for Versus

7. Hakaan lost his collection- This is very devastating. As in THE WHOLE COLLECTION WAS LOST IN TRANSPORT! If it was stolen, shame on you! :(

8. People of fashion vs Cathy Horyn- Cathy Horyn was banned from the Saint Laurent show and Oscar de la Renta also had his share with Cathy Horyn. This one's a hot highlight! :)

9. Raf Simons debut RTW for Dior - J'adore this collection! It's a departure from his Jil Sander line but still has that Dior taste! :)

10.  Hedi for SLP - Hedi Slimane showed his debut collection for Saint Laurent. He squeezed the DNA of Saint Laurent. There were a lot of wearable clothes and it has promise.

11. The buzz at McQueen - Literally! The bee is here! Haha! I SUPER LOVE IT! :D

12. Chanel hula-hoops to the beach-each! - Chanel surely updated its bag to the maxima!

13. Checkerboards for you, Stripes for me- Marc Jacobs and his collection for Louis Vuitton always has this sense of continuity and it was further strengthened with this season's collection.

14. Celine is in! Fur for spring? Only by Celine!
What was your highlight of the season?
