Hello everybody, usually, I would make this post on thursday, but I'm not sure to have time tomorrow... So, The second place I present to you is Philippines! I just let you to our weekly guide, Em :
I'm Em, I just turned 21 years old and I am a literature-management student currently in my junior year. I live in the Philippines, specifically in Iloilo City which is at the heart of our country. The people here are constantly evolving, getting more daring and confident with their outfit choices and I must say, our city could be a fashion capital someday. Now that can't be a far-fetched thought, right? Our city has a lot of shops and stores, be it retail, outlet, branded, ready to wear and even thrifted! Just perfect for fashion junkies like me. There are also a number of talented people here who are budding designers, most of them had already gotten their name out at the Manila fashion scene. Our city is definitely making it's mark in our country's fashion industry.
My favorites places to shop are at the local malls, department stores, retail or outlet but most especially at thrift stores! I don't know why but there's something special about thrifting. It's like digging on the ground and finding a hidden treasure. :) As much as I love to shop, I also love making my own clothes. I'm still on the learning process of sewing and creating garments but I am getting better. There's nothing more beautiful than wearing your own creation, right? :)
Aside from fashion, I also love eating! As you can probably tell from my blog posts, I love taking photos of the food I've eaten just to preserve its perfect state before I ruined it haha. Some of my favorite local restaurants and bars are Mojave, Sbarro, Al Dente, Hamada, Calda, Crave Burger, Dulgies, Nothing But Desserts, Coffee Break, The Garden Cafe, Book Latte, Starbucks, Treahouse, Tea-rrific, to name a few. I'm obsessed with cafes/coffee shops, pastry shops, tea shops or just a quaint place where I can relax and enjoy my coffee or tea and sweets.
