This is one of my favorite dresses in The CHIc Closet's May Collection.  Bustier dresses are very wearable.  One obvious reason is because it's padded.... very convenient... HAHA! :)  

You can also wear this without straps.  They are not detachable, but you can hide them.  Yay!

your sweetest drug,
I love lip liners!  I have one from NYX in pink hue and now, I'm using this liner from Estee Lauder.


This is in Tearose Writer, with a satin-like finish.  




The body is not made of wood, just like pencils... but rather its similar with crayons.  This type of liners are very easy to sharpen.  

I also noticed that the color stays even when you wipe it with tissue, so I had to use a makeup remover.  

Take a closer look at the color.


You can visit Estee Lauder's site for more products. :)

your sweetest drug,











Finally, got the chance to watch Hunger Games.  Yep, I know we're too late, but I was really surprised that there were still a lot of people who watched it.  I was carried away on most part, especially when the little girl died... so heartbreaking. :'(

Okay, so 'nuff of the story.  Love this floral top I found from my cousin's closet.  I wanted to pair it with a yellow or pink shorts, but I don't have either.  :(  The white skirt just added a summery feel.

your sweetest drug,


We had a quick dinner before watching Hunger Games in Edsa Shangrila.  Check out Cibo's two pasta dishes and an oval pizza.

"Real.Modern.Italian.We do it best."

Now, let's get down to business.  Starting off with a refreshing lemon iced tea with a little minty taste.

78 php

Our first order came, its Linguine Alla Ghiotta.  

325 php

shrimps.chives.stewed tomato.cream.chili peppers.bread

My Rating
  • Taste: 3 stars - Just a normal carbonara-like dish for me.  Its not too creamy and noodles were a bit under-cooked.  Well, I'm not so sure if its their al dente standard though. :)
  • Serving & Presentation: 4 stars - Good enough for a solo plate.  It also comes with bread.
  • Value: 3 stars -  I suggest trying other pasta in their menu if you're really looking for a "sulit" meal. 
Overall: 3.3 burps

Next, our pizza.  We decided to go for a simple flavor since we ordered 2 pasta plates already.

Margherita (330 php)

tomato.mozzarella.basil

My Rating
  • Taste: 4 stars - I loved the bread, perfectly cooked.  I didn't eat the outer crust though. :)  You can taste the saltiness of the cheese.  One comment would be, I was waiting for the taste of the tomatoes.  For me, the taste of mozzarella was more powerful.
  • Serving & Presentation: 5 stars - They serve pizza in an oval shape.  I love how they place it on a wooden board.  Nice touch.
  • Value: 4 stars - Pizzas here are below 400 php, 6 slices.  Good value since the flavors are somehow unique than other restos. 
Overall: 4.3 burps

Our last pasta came in late, because the waiter thought we didn't order it.  Weird.  But hey, save the best for last, right?  So true for this next dish.

Rigatoni All'Alfonso (325 php)

shrimps.chives.stewed tomato.cream.chili peppers.bread

My Rating
  • Taste: 5 stars - My taste buds were really delighted.  The noodles were cooked perfectly, not hard like the first one.  And the sauce....  Whew!  Not surprised that this is their best seller pasta.  It's so creamy and and the tomatoes tasted like heaven! :)
  • Serving & Presentation: 4 stars - With this type of pasta, you'll think if they count this piece by piece...HAHA!  just kidding! :)
  • Value: 4 stars - Willing to pay for this mouthwatering dish.  
Overall: 4.3 burps

Service charge is 10%.  You can also find them at Trinoma and Glorietta.  Check out their FB page here to know other branches.  For a peek at their complete menu, click here.  Found it at their official website, http://www.cibo.ph.

Went to our rooftop to shoot my lookbook photo.



your sweetest drug,











As I mentioned in my previous LOOKBOOK posts, I couldn't find a nice place at home to take the photos.  So, up we went to our rooftop.  We shot this at around 4 in the afternoon and of course, Mr. Sun joined us.  :P

Nevertheless, photos turned out pretty good.  What do you think? :)
