ESCOLTA MARKET//Vintage, Artist Made and Hand Crafted

Finally! I found something that i’ve been dreaming to see. Since i was in elementary to high school days i am really amazed everything about arts. Somehow, I call myself a frustrated artist? Hahaha. Charaught!  I’ve also loved everything in vintage especially when i hear a story about a thing that is very old.

I found this Market when i was scrolling in Instagram. The Old Soul Vintage Accesories were one of Escolta’s Seller. This Market has a history on it that’s why it’s held on saturdays only.

Oh how i miss rainy season.. Cold and cozy. Haha. Happy super hot lovely spring summer! I was so excited that i’m gonna spend my summer days with my realatives from US. The reason why i am excited about is because i am too spoiled by my tita mhai for getting me alot of stuffs from make up and clothes etc. :”>

DSC01200Since  it’s summer time i was also browsing some trendy hair style. I am learning 3 different ways on how to do a hair bun on Pinterest. 🙂 I got my lace crop top from Oxygen. This crop top is my first owned and i am happy that i bought it in a cheaper price coz oxygen is always on sale. My vintage leaf black necklace is from 999 mall in Divisoria and My white gold chained bracelet was from My mom. And the skirt! I am glad at last! My favorite maxi skirt that i’m obsess wearing this summer. My mom also gave the skirt and what i love about the skirt is the sexy detail on the side of it. :”>

Are you ready for some japanese again? You know how much i love japanese food. This was a bit luxurious type of japanese restaurant. My family went to UMU restaurant 3 times already and been enjoying there food so much.

And Of course, My favorite of all! Sashimi and Sushi! ❤ Yum! I’ve also notice their wasabi as i dissolve the wasabi in my soy sauce they put some seeds in there. I don’t know what kind of spice it is? Well.. if you tried in UMU and you know it.. just comment here and tell me. I would be interested. (Please don’t judge me coz i know japanese people don’t mix the wasabi in their soy sauce. peace! :D)

They have their own version of Kani Salad in Umu. It is made of too much greens on it and they rolled the kani into like spring rolls and the dressing was a simple vinaigrette.

For our Main Course, Everytime we eat outside i let my dad decide what to order.. I think Umu menu have some set of selection for every meal which is good.

DSC01103

Every dinner my family and i were trying to be healthy a little bit, My dad decided to make it light for us. Potatoes and Enoki Mushroom wrapped in Thinly Sliced Beef sauteed in teriyaki or sweet sauce.

Too Lucky Girl

I realized that I am too lucky to have my life especially my parents for giving these kind of things that i experienced and as the days go by I am looking forward for more blessings. Also thanking God for everything this wouldn’t happen without him. Sunday is my favorite day of the week, Got to spend the time with my family the whole day.

Too Lucky also to wore elephant print clothing, As feng shui told us that elephant has energy mantra.  Dark Blue Elephant Print Rompers from random stall in Greenhills and Elephant Charm Necklace from my sister’s accessories closet.

Have you noticed that i love black when it comes to bags or watches to pair it easily with my outfits. Cheap Hermes Black Bag from Greenhills and Vintage Paris Black Watch from Three Wishes Online Store. Pop some pastel color on this dark outfit Sky Blue Oxford Shoes from Mom’s Shoes.

Sometimes being lucky does not depend on our Astrology or Feng Shui belief, It is you who make it happen for all the hard works you did, It pays off to make your life live to it’s fullest. 😉

Hype this style on Lookbook!
