School Diaries: Happy Thursday

In my university, we have this thing called "Happy Thursday". Most La Sallians don't have classes after Thursday (unless you don't have a choice and are required to take a Friday/Saturday class). Fortunately for me, I don't have classes so Thursdays are usually the days where I'm always in a good mood. Last Thursday was no different as I got to catch up with a lot of my old friends! 

Before I start with stuff you'll probably find boring, here's what I wore yesterday:


Top: Kamiseta | Skirt: Forever 21 | Sandals: Forever 21 | Necklace: DIY | Watch: Seiko | Rings: Forever 21 | Bag: Longchamp


Now the folks I went to the Beach House (name of the venue) with are my elementary school friends! After 6th grade, I transferred to a different school in a different city which meant hang outs were impossible. It was only this week when I decided to ask one of them to invite everyone for a drink or two around Taft. Thank God a lot went, but a few couldn't go. Hopefully we can do it again, this night was definitely one for the books!

School Diaries: Sweater Weather

This post is a day late, but since I forgot to take pics of my outfit today, might as well just talk about this one! Our Monday classes were suspended because of the typhoon Labuyo but the day after wasn't so I kinda expected it to be still a bit cold and windy. It was raining hard that morning so I decided to wear a sweater but I figured it won't be as cold in the noon so I wore a skirt. I should've brought a back up shirt because it got so hot in the noon! It was a bit tolerable though, since all of the classrooms are air-conditioned.

Also, I'm changing the "School Chronicles" to "School Diaries" because I just realized how irrelevant the word chronicle is. I'd also like to mention I got the idea from Vernice Enciso! She used to have her own blog (not sure if it's still up) but she and her sister has now a joint one here. I love reading their blog (even though their taste is a tad bit more girly than mine!) and also, I see Vern around in school and I can't help but feel a bit fan-girly inside!

Top: Forever 21 | Skirt: Chill | Accessories: Forever 21 | Shoes: Nike (Capri II)


PS. I don't always Instagram my outfits but I will always (the ones I remember to take a pic of) post 'em here!


Now you may think my title for this post is such a cliché (because it is) but it's also a song! I discovered this band through Ingrid (missglamorazzi on YouTube)! She talked about them in one of her "favorites" videos, I think it was the July one.

Here's a link to the music video. I suggest you listen to their other songs as well! I recommend Afraid, Let It Go, and How! Or just download (or buy it, but cmon nobody really does that right?) their album, I Love You.




I'll be going to a couple of parties (not too much, this just makes me sound like I have a life outside of the internet) this month so that means more posts on here! Again, watch out for my giveaway!

Poetic Justice

I'm back.......................... again. If there is a "laziest blogger" award, I'd probably win that every year. I don't even do much school work anymore, I'm just too lazy. Woops!


Since I don't have someone to take legit outfit photos for me, I rely on my phone and my huge mirror. THIS WORKS RIGHT??? At least you guys get to see what I'm wearing right...... 




Top: People are people | Skirt: Bazaar | Plaid Shirt: Hand me down | Shoes: Forever 21 | Bag: Long Champ | Accessories: Forever 21 and Bazaar (But you can't see them so...)




And since I am insanely obsessed with this song, here's the vid:




ALSO I GAVE MY BLOG A MAKEOVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THIS THEME OH MY LORD I CANNOT EVEN (I tweaked it a bit) and also I changed my blog name BECAUSE I AM SUCH A KILLA $$$$$$

In other news, I AM GOING TO HOST A GIVEAWAY in a couple of days so wait for it!

Music Faves of the Month: May

I figured it's time to post this since everyone on YouTube and on here are talking about their favorites. If I do "fashion" or "beauty" favorites, I probably won't be consistent with it and skip half a year before I post another one so here's my attempt to try something a little more forgiving. I'm a music whore and I thought you guys might find my music taste interesting (if you don't, GTFO! Kidding...) or just want to listen to new music. 

Also, I'm stuck in Batangas right now for a "reunion" but I'm trying my best to avoid everyone. I also have an  essay to read, I'll get on with that later. 

I posted this on instagram, do follow me there! <@sofiagatchalian>





Night Visions by Imagine Dragons

I've heard the band through the radio, and I kinda regret not going to their concert here!


Born To Die by Lana Del Rey

I cannot even fathom how in love I am with Lana. I'm also obsessed with her song Young and Beautiful which is a part of the The Great Gatsby soundtrack. 


When It Was Now by Atlas Genius

Loooooooove this band.


Gossamer by Passion Pit

This is probably my favorite through my whole list here, I would also include Manners here, which is also Passion Pit's album. I love them!!!!



There it is, my favorites of the month. I don't know what to talk about next... Maybe my hair? I don't know. Well I guess that's it! I'm officially back to school and I ended my first week yesterday. Too many embarrassing things happened to me this week. Way to start of my school year! Good luck with all of you!

I'm back! (and a whole lot of rambling)

Hello all you lovely people!!! I am back from my grave! It's been almost a year since I've last posted and I kinda feel weird looking back at it now. Freshman year changed me a lot (not so much my fashion sense, but in terms of maturity and all that shiznit) but not so much my writing techniques. I'll probably rant more than any of you can take but to hell with that! This is my blawg and I will write till I die! (Obviously hyperbole)


I'm blogging without any specific topic in mind so let's just go with the flow, alright?


First thing that pops to mind is my hair. I've wanted to blog about my hair and all the intense process it has gone through ever since I had it done but I was too lazy to take photos. It occurred to me that the reason why I found blogging tedious is because I had to take photos and prepare the lighting and fix the camera and just thinking about it exhausts me! Yep, I am one heck of a lazy lady. Anyway, back to le hair, I'll talk about that soon (hopefully). Don't except fancy shmancy photos from me! iPhone photos will do. Speaking of iPhone photos, do follow me on instagram: @sofiagatchalian

Next would be my current obsession with food shows. If you notice my greeting up there (Hello all you lovely people), I actually got it from Jamie Oliver. I LOVE THAT MAN. I most likely would fail if ever I attempt to make one of his dishes but O-to-the-M-to-the-G I am obsessed. Probably because he's British and we all know (well, my twitter followers would) how obsessed I am with Skins UK. That show is the bomb diggity!! I cannot wait for the 7th season!!!!!!!!!! Yes, that many exclamation points is necessary. 

Now school, on the other hand, is starting next week! I'm gonna be a college sophomore and I don't know how to feel about it. Everything is literally flying by and I just need to take a breather. It's going to be weird seeing all those freshmen thinking they're probably older than me. I turned 17 last week by the way! That was fun, I went to Canyon Cove with the fambam. We're going to La Union the weekend before classes start so I'm gonna be peeling my skin off the first week of school (way to attract dem boys, Sofia!). 

One thing I'd like to mention is how my taste in music changed, or improved, as how I would like to say it. No more mainstream music! Yes, I still love my Maroon 5 but I'm now leaning more on indie, band, and house music. I can still sing to Justin Bieber and Pink though! (Gotta keep up with the times!) Also, I'm obsessed with rap music as I have a nigga (no offense but I love using this word) inside of me! Kanye, Jay-Z, and oh my Drake. I'm also super obsessed with Frank Ocean! I'm currently listening to Passion Pit as it is my favorite band of the moment. Wait, band-of-the-moment post sounds like a great idea! Weeee way to go Sofia!

Before I forget, the reason why I'm getting back (or at least trying to get back) to blogging is because someone on ask.fm complimented me on my blog and then another one was asking about it! Thank you, my anonymous friends, for reviving my love for blogging. I've been doing it since 2008 for pete's sake! It was mostly amateur reviews about make up products everyone had tried (it seemed legit to be done by a 14 year old back then!) but I had fun! I have that blog on private now because the photos and the writing is way to funny (and embarrassing) to be posted on public. 

As you can tell, I'm not good at all in using transitional devices per paragraph so forgive me my lovely readers! Or if no one's reading this, it's fine! This blog is mostly for documentation of the stuff that's been happening in my life and if I do attract an audience, well try your hardest to not laugh at my life! I'm having a hard time trying to breathe myself! 

So that's about it, I can't think of more stuff to talk about. My next post would probably be the band-of-the-moment or music/artist of the moment. Adios!


PS. My layout is super shitty, I don't know how to remove the post links with the photos when you're at my home page. It's so weird! I have to insert a random landscape photo on every photo so it won't look weird. Help? :x

Edit: I changed my theme and I'm pretty much happy with it! I prefer the plain background though so I might change it. I'm also fixing every post to fit my blog.
