It's safe to conclude that I update my Instagram more than my facebook or my blog. These 4x4 goodness are what's keeping me in the loop especially in stalking my fave bloggers and friends. I am too lazy to write and read nowadays so Instagram is such a convenient outlet. 

Follow me: @dredreveries and let's be friends! :)

{ T O M B O Y I S H }

One good thing about having a burgeoning baby bump is I can borrow stuff from the husband particularly this polo top which he has neglected to wear because of his fluctuating weight. 

Wore this super casual and comfortable outfit to an engagement shoot for one of our clients. The theme was 90's grunge rock that's why I had this lovely Doc Martens with me. I've always wanted to own one   coz it instantly gives you that model-off-duty vibe. haha I wish.

This is my favorite summer bag. How can it be not, this was our giveaway during our wedding last November. :) The quote is from the Beatles song "Because". I love that it's simple, catchy, and fits our personalities perfectly.

What is it about getting older that most people dislike. Is it about getting fine lines and wrinkles or getting those inevitable flabs? I don't know with you guys but none of that bothers me at all (well at least not in a serious level anyway). The one thing about getting old that's making me antsy is the fact that my parents get older too and you know when people get old, we get plagued with health concerns. And that's one thing that scares me the most. 
So on my 31st birthday (yes I am 31 and I am not one bit shy to admit it), my only wish is just good health and long life to my parents and for the rest of my family especially to the little bundle of joy my husband and I are expecting.

Happy 31st to me!!! :)

Nothing compares to spending Sundays with the people you love. Spent my Easter Sunday with my family for the usual barbecue and pool reunion. 

I'm feeling a lot better now that I'm on my fifth month. The puking has semi-stopped and the nausea has subsided. My appetite has improved much; and lately I even find myself ransacking the fridge in the middle of the night. Oh good luck baby weight!

I have also been trying my best to follow my doctor's advice to not wear heels and walk slowly and take everything in stride. The walking slowly part is really a challenge coz I'm known to be a fast walker even in heels. My husband has been nothing but really supportive of this milestone. He is currently my yaya and he's always there for every request that I make even those that are already plain stupid. He has a hint that some of it were just me playing bratty but he still does them without complaining. haha 
And I love him for that. :)

I have been dying to go to the beach and spend a day or two on an island ever since that short but sweet road trip we had last February. In fact i have been buying (secretly....behind the husband's back tehehe) some cute summer dresses and high waist bikinis for that dream vacation. It's hard to get a leave off from work these days especially now that most of my leave balances have been consumed from me being sick most of the time during my first trimester. So the anticipation to finally get that 4-day holiday break is just so overwhelming that I'm going to be really disappointed if it wouldn't push through. 
But you know in life, or in marriage specifically, we don't always get what we want. The husband decided to just spend our holidays in his parent's house because a) Camotes meant a lot of motorbike-riding which my OB advised me to avoid b) he hasn't been home for almost three months. I wanted to argue and prove my case but this time he has a point so I obliged. I am not good at compromising I tell you because I have a way of turning things around to my advantage but for the benefit of our baby I will just have to say goodbye to that trip for now. But the bargaining did not end there coz I managed to    coerce him to take me to lunch somewhere near the beach. hahaha

These photos were taken last February, not the official start of summer yet, but the heat and the blue skies signaled that my favorite time of the year has come earlier. 
We were scouting for locations in Cebu South for an editorial shoot we will be doing this month for a top wedding blog. Will post photos of the official shoot once the feature is up on their website. It will showcase collaborative work of my husband photographer, Marlon Capuyan, stylist Cuckoo Cloud Concepts ( headed by Ms. Vanilla Ice Cream herself, Gizelle), and some of the best talents from the Cebu wedding scene. So please do watch out for that. :)

I know I'm not big on blogging about my personal life although sometimes I tackle about personal stuff but only on the surface. Not really the type that digs deep on the matter. I only write longer entires when I'm frustrated or angry about something but you may have noticed they do not see the light of internet day because I delete them once I'm done writing them. 

But this, I am comfortable to share. It would be a shame if I didn't. Because sooner or later, you will  see more of me in a much fuller figure. Yes, I am currently expecting our first baby. And you bet I am gonna rock this moment in my life every single day that I can. So expect pregnancy posts (still fashion posts, of course) on the days to come. I hope I will not bore you. haha 

P.S. I am eight weeks along in the photos. :)
