One Saturday Night

Time: 10:04PM
Playlist: Tycho (Dive // Full album)


I have never felt this alone since happiness consumed me. My friends all know how much I want to live alone and be independent. But what's happening? I miss home. I miss my family. No, I don't live alone right now. I'm currently staying at my auntie's house but they aren't here. All who's left here at home are all the vehicle noises from outside and the maid who was screamingly quiet.

Since I woke up this morning, I did nothing but face the screens of my smartphone or my computer (or sometimes, both of them). I'm working on a layout for an indie band's upcoming EP album. My back hurts. I'm not used to this kind of situation where in I can't widely move. I feel so unproductive besides the fact that I'm halfway finishing 1 on my many projects. I miss my friends. I haven't talked to them since yesterday. I want to cook. I want to paint. I want to go out. There's clearly a lot of things I want to do but I can't. I don't know why but I can't.

I need to pass the EP layout by Monday but I guess my bed needs me more. He told me to just stay with him and cuddle. I miss my bed, too. It's been 2 hours since I last lay on it. I guess I have to go now.

I know, I know. This post is purely n o n s e n s e. 

Whatever.

"OUR LADY" by Philip Paredes

I've always enjoyed photoshoots. I love seeing myself captured by the camera of great photographers. The first formal photoshoot I had was back in February 2014 where we modeled for my cousin's online store.

I knew Philip (or we call him Flip) from art school. We study the same course. He constantly shoots his close friends and I must say I am seriously amazed with his works. There was this photoshoot they had where in they asked me to do his model's make-up and I said yes. My blog, obviously, is about beauty products and people know how much I love make-up. The shoot went out nice and as usual, classy.

Few months after the said shoot (well that was last year), Flip asked if I can model one of his shoots. I was in awe and immediately said "yes". This was one of the activities I was looking for just right after he asked me to do the shoot. He sent me pegs and photos of the clothes I'm going to wear. I was so excited and thrilled the moment I saw all the dresses.

The shoot was held at La Loma Cemetery, the same location where Heart Evangelista's Preview cover was shot. It was a brand new experience. After all, the cemetery didn't seem to be as creepy as what I am expecting. And also, you guessed it right, I did my own hair and make-up. :D

Because photographers need a permit before shooting, our photoshoot went on the "time-trial mode". We had to fit all three sets in 2 hours, I guess? Luckily, we did it.

Anyway, I've been babbling much, here are some of the photos from the shoot. ☺
