Yet another outing with my favorite (and only) events buddy, Nico and this time we could sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Two days ago we had the privilege of watching Captain America: Civil War at SM Megamall. Thanks to Tita Patty Betita for having us! I am no film critic. My reaction after every single movie i've ever watched is "It was good!" Likewise, I thought the same for this one. I heard somewhere that DC Comics are better than Marvel comics and Marvel movies are better than DC.  However, I can't judge that because (don't kill me) I don't think I've ever watched a DC…

There's an ongoing stereotype that beauty pageants are all about looks, not smarts. All thanks to Miss Congeniality starring Sandra Bullock, I must admit that I was one of those people who never understood the existence of them. The fictional "Miss United States" pageant showcased extravagant set designs, enchanting music and pretty girls in bikinis and evening gowns. Although the movie replicates what is seen on the surface, the true meaning of beauty pageants isn't explained. My experience at Binibining Pilipinas 2016 taught me that there's so much more to a nice body and a pretty face. Thank you to Tita Mafae Belasco of Mafae Management and Nico Belasco of Nico Belasco…

I finally put my photography skills to the test when my best friend, Allyzza asked me to take pictures for her school project: the Caribbean Special. It is a custom made, cuban-inspired sandwich, which will be sold from February 9 to 12 at the ICA entrepreneurial fair (I may or may not be advertising hehe). Immediately, Allyzza and I both came up with the idea of a picnic. As they say, "great minds think alike" ;). From that point onwards we went to the drawing board, gathering countless pegs on Pinterest, finding a nice location, thinking of what props to use and even telling what our models…

I think the first time I ever stepped foot inside a Pull & Bear store was in Macau. I soon discovered that it is one of the best clothing brands for sweaters, flannels, loose shirts and jeans- especially jeans. November means sweater weather so if you're looking for cute and comfy pieces, Pull & Bear's got you covered. I found out that it was opening at the SM Mega Fashion Hall when I came across the huge sign on the second floor. A few days later, I was invited to the opening along with my mom, my mentor Tita Patty, make-up artist Tita Lou, and blogger/ice skating bestie, Ysabel…

H&M- only the most well-known clothing brand in the world. There's not a single person I know who doesn't like H&M. There's a range of items to choose from that suits everyone. So when I found out I was invited to the VIP opening party, I was extremely excited! Thanks to H&M Philippines and my mentor, tita Patty Betita for making it happen. I'm sure a lot of people have already seen a glimpse of the three-floor store at SM Megamall, but if you haven't, here's what it looks like. Two of the floors are dedicated to women's clothes, accessories and shoes so yay us!…

Aaaaand i'm back! Its been such a long time since I've posted something, and I blame that on freshman year. I just about settled in and am happy to say that its half term break! But there's still a lot more work that has to be done. I have a test on SATURDAY. What?! So I really hope to be quick with all my work so that I can post something new on Absolutely Savvy more often. Youtube, Instagram, twitter- goodbye! I've missed writing on ze blog so right now, lets talk Zumba. photo above by poshnails.com.ph A couple of weeks ago, Posh Nails hosted a Zumba…
