After School

Cap: Pull & Bear
Bag: Herschel
Shoes: Call it Spring

Hello people of the internet! Hope everything is going well on your side of the world. I have been, as usual busy at work but I am enjoying work more than I used to.

Im not sure if I've already said it before but now I'm back in Abu Dhabi! Yey!!! How I missed my home! Dubai is an amazing city, but Abu Dhabi will always be the place where I want to be.

Today's look is very plain and basic, just a simple white shirt with a nice pair of chinos. I've actually been wanting to do a look like this and since I am slowly trying to get more casual than dandy this is the perfect time to do it. Started with this cute and fun cap (Pull & Bear), an all time fav backpack from Hershel to store my camera gear and new comfy walking shoes (Call it Spring).

Wonder if you've noticed...

I'm using a totally different camera! Well it's not really my camera, but I'm planning to upgrade my super old and outdated Nikon DSLR and get a Canon 70D. Although today I'm using a 60D just to pretty much have an idea on what I'm going to invest in and we went to a school around our new neighbourhood to do some creative shots. So far I am very impressed with the results and I cant wait to get my new camera.

And yes, I have been working out. I just ended my 3 months Body Beast + P90X hybrid program and I'm seeing good results and learned a lot from it. i am about to embark on my 2nd round of this program and hopefully get more results.

Hope you guys have a great week ahead and see you all on my next post! ^_^

Always have fun!

Where have I been all this time?

Shirt: Zara
Shorts: H&M

Boy it has really been a while! I will not go into full details in as to why I have been gone for a couple of months. But to cut the story short, I immersed myself into work and focus into learning new things, which I did. I gained a few friends, discovered myself more, learned a new direction in life and looking forward more for my future.

I have to say, it was a tough decision to set aside one of my favorite things to do, but it was something I had to do. I always tell my readers that I blog not because I want to gain something from it, this blog only works as outlet for me to share my little journey into building my wardrobe which I successfully did for the past three years that I have been blogging.

And if I have to be completely honest, that chapter of my life has long been completed. I was able to build a wardrobe that I almost didn't have any space to store and most of the items I have collected, I haven't really had a chance to wear them in my everyday life. (WOW! I'm so glad that I am finally addressing that in this blog post!)

Having said that, it doesn't mean that I will completely close down my blog. I'm just finding the right direction on what should I do next.

Right now I'm in sort of a roadblock. Like I said in my previous blog post, I had days where I felt blogging was starting to become extra work rather than something I enjoy. I had a few partnerships and deadlines that I almost didn't meet due to the new career I was building on.

I want to find ways to once again learn to enjoy blogging and look forward on doing this rather than forcing myself to do a senseless post on what I wore during a certain week. I want my next posts to be as creative as it used to be and not to just force a look I wasn't 100% sure I liked.

And once again, I am in a point in my life where I have an important decision to make that could potentially build my future more. Right now, my priority is my career, my travel plans and focus more on living rather than being behind a laptop screen most of my time.

Hopefully I do get more opportunities to blog because it is still a part of my life. But I do have some goals and dreams to fulfill and I would not be able to forgive myself if I don't do my best even if it takes less time to do blogging and weekly posts.

I know I'm being very vague so i will just end it with this:

You will come to a point in your life that you will reach a vast ocean with beautiful islands. Unfortunately you won't be able to visit them all and it's up to you to choose the islands that would be best for your journey and would make your time worthwhile. 

Aim high, live young and create wonderful memories!

Always have fun!

Middle East Film and Comic Convention 2016 Experience

I had the best time last month when I went to my first ever ComiCon at the Dubai World Trade Center!

I have always been a geek and I have been wanting the to attend MEFCC since I moved to UAE, but since I was previously based in Abu Dhabi I didn't have the enough opportunity to go. But now that I've launched my YouTube channel and I've moved to Dubai, there's no reason not to.

To be honest, and I'm so sorry for being so naive and ignorant to say this that I came there with EXTREMELY low expectations, and guess what?... I WAS BLOWN AWAY!

I went there and was so speechless! It was one of the best experience I've had this year. I went to ComiCon alone but I felt like I belong. No one cared what you're there for, it was purely fun and good time!

You'll go around, meet different people cosplaying and they were so easy to approach to and take pictures with. There were also a lot of freebies around, the booths we big and insanely creative, a lot of comic and anime stuff which I went nuts with (Warning: Make sure you don't bring your wallet or you'll be broke! lol!), you also get to play with the latest games, and I've even got a glimpse of this amazing actor from Game of Thrones!

If you want to see more of my ComiCon experience, head over to my YouTube channel and watch my coverage of MEFCC 2016!

I'm Still Here

3 Piece Suit: Zara
Shirt and Lapel Pin: Iconic

Wow! It has been months since I last did a style post!

Well I haven't really officially left. Like I said before I will never be in hiatus, it just that right now I have different priorities and focusing on different things.

Blogging has been a huge part of my life and I wont easily let go of it. It has been severely a part of me. However, right now I have a different take on it.

My purpose on why I blog is not to be popular, but basically to tell my story and share my creativity. It was never my goal to be popular or to be known. Sure I loved attending fashion shows, partnering with brands and being featured in a magazine but my main focus was to share my story.

Unfortunately, the past few months before I moved to Dubai, blogging felt like a task instead of something I enjoy. So I had to sit back and it didn't matter to me how long it would take, I just wanted to do sort of a re-boot.

While I was doing my reboot, I realized that I've always loved fashion but it has become an expensive hobby. Aside from fashion, there's another thing that I wanted to do and that is to travel. I have been in UAE for almost  four years now and I was so focused on my blog that I forgot to save money to travel.

This is why I created my YouTube channel. This time, I wanted to collect memories rather than collecting material things. I want to be able to watch something when I grow old and be able to remind myself that I went to a wonderful location or did something cool and fun.

Fashion as of now will not be on the top of my priorities as of this moment and I'm putting travel first.

I have been doing a lot of planning since the start of this year and I'm so glad that slowly I'm able to reach my targets. Another thing reason why I'm saving is that I want to upgrade my camera and buy more equipments to improve my YouTube videos.

Today I am wearing a three piece suit from Zara. If you guys still remember, it was in one of my goals to get myself a three piece suit, but since I wanted to do more casual looks I keep on delaying purchasing a set. I completed and clean this look with a crisp white shirt, accessorized with an adorable lapel pin (Iconic) and finished with a hat and wingtip shoes.

"I'm still here."
Don't worry! I will still do some style posts time to time, although I would not be as active as I used to before. ^_^

If you want to see what I have been up to, please visit my YouTube channel and subscribe!

I recently went to the Middle East Film and Comic convention at the Dubai World Trade Center which you can watch here:

Thank you and see you all on my next posts! :D

Always have fun!

Lo's UAE Travlog: Goodbye Abu Dhabi, hello Dubai!

Hello everyone!!! Im back!

Wow! I cant believe it has been three months since I was gone! I  miss blogging so much.

It has been a super crazy experience and I'm both sad and happy to tell you guys that I had left Abu Dhabi. Sad because I did a lot of crazy, fun and memorable things in Abu Dhabi and mainly because thats where I started my blog. Trust me, it wasn't an easy decision to make because my family and close friends live there. To be honest, one of the reasons why I haven't posted anything in my social media channels is because I'm taking all the necessary time to absorb everything that is currently happening in my life until I calm down! lol

I am also happy because I moved to Dubai! New opportunities came in my way and I had to be brave enough even if its so outside my comfort zone. I have realised that in order for me to do more, I would have to move to Dubai and learn new things, broaden my connections and of course re-discover Dubai.

Watch my latest Youtube video and take a peek on what I have been doing for the past 3 months! 

Always have fun!
