You will be redirected to my new blog in 5 seconds :)


Hi everyone! Last year I told you I got my own domain, which is, so I will not be updating this blog anymore. However, I'm going to keep this blogger profile. I hope you continue to support me by visiting Zeros and Fives. Thank you so much! :)

A special friend arrived from the States and we're going to meet tomorrow. Where (in Manila) should I bring him so he won't be bored?

Extra Extra! :)

Hey, guys. Have you seen the February 2011 issue of Meg magazine?

The Feb issue presents the spring 2011 trends--from prints, florals, colors, and grays. The best thing about Meg is that their pages cover lots of tips, information, and updates on fashion, events, and blogging and bloggers (my fave portion). Fashion-wise, the mag's styles are very easy to imitate; the clothes', accessories', and shoes' designs that they show are very easy to find in malls. AND...
I was in it! On page 28. Hohoho. Yesss I'm proud even if I was only an extra and I my head looked big. Lulz.

I happened to be one of the top 40 candidates of Meg magazine's Face Search and that night was the announcement of the top 10. Unfortunately, I didn't make it because I didn't know that I was one of the top 40.Sigh. Anyway, read here to know more about the event.

Voting ended in December 2010. Who do you think won? Let's just wait for the March cover to find out. :)
(or ones that at least resemble them)

The Second First: Make-up Artistry

If last week was my first official styling gig, yesterday was the first time I "painted" someone else's face for a photo shoot. Not that I'm new at it, I've always loved painting my friends' faces and mine but it's all for fun. It's quite nerve-wracking seeing your work being taken by the lens, unsure if what you did fell short, or is over-the-top, or is just right.
Thankfully, it turned out fine.

What do you think?
I can only do natural looks or barely there make-up because that's what I wear everyday. I also had immense difficulty with the model's lips because they're too thin (which I so want. Haha). Using a lipliner, I lined past her real lips to make it look thicker (or at least I thought it did).
Model: Maribeth Balay
Photographers: Kendrick Go and Cristina Brito
I have not blogged for almost a week, and the whole team was awesome enough to let me model, too, so I brought one ensemble. Yay! Hello Lookbook and Chictopia post!

Hype the look on Lookbook and Chictopia.

Yesterday was so fun. Too bad I didn't get to stay longer, I and my old high school friends had to meet to watch the pyrolympics at SM Mall of Asia. I was so tired that day I was sleeping while on the way to the mall. Hehe.
Thank you Cristina Brito, Philip Jara, and Marc Wew for the photos! :)

Testing the Waters: My First Ever Styling Gig

Saturday is my favorite day. It's that time of the week that I can do the things I love: dressing up, shopping, blogging, reading, sometimes modeling, and sleeping like there's no tomorrow.

Yesterday, however, was a bit unlike my usual Saturdays. I love dressing up so much that I never thought anyone would take interest in what I do and actually invite me to dress up someone else, and for a photo shoot even! Armed with my personal "aesthetic", I grabbed every stuff I can carry--from dresses, accessories, shoes, make-up, and whatnot, and went to the shoot location. The whole experience was unnerving but at the same time gratifying, especially when I saw the outcome:

DRESS Cocco| ACCESSORIES Pearl necklace turned into layered bracelets, black gem bracelet, gold headband turned into ponytail tie

TOP & BOTTOM Bunny sweater, denim shorts

TOP & BOTTOM Printed tank top, beaded tulle skirt| ACCESSORIES Layered pearl necklace, Boveeshop vintage ring, Chanel bracelet, bow hair clip

TOP Red Safari-inspired tube dress| ACCESSORIES Bangles in animal prints

Unfortunately the last model had no body shots as she had to go home early, it was her birthday. Yay! Anyway, what do you think of my styling? :)

PHOTOGRAPHERS Kendrick Go and Paolo Sy respectively
MODELS Monic Cua, Blizzeth Lee, Danica Ong respectively

I Need Help :)

I was checking my Zeros and Fives blog early this morning when I saw a comment from one of the most popular bloggers in the country--FlairCandy. I couldn't help but be flattered so I went to her ever-fab blog to let her know how honored I was.

One particular entry about a serpent ring caught my eye. Aside from it being gold, the design made me curious and right then and there I knew I had to get it. As I have said in my previous post, I'm starting to fancy and collect rings.

Photo taken by Kristel Chuateco, grabbed it from FlairCandy

Isn't it gorgeous? Unfortunately, I can't have it that easy (unless I have Php4, 000). I have to upload my photo on Panopio Jewelry' Facebook page and have it liked by tons of people. Here's the photo I uploaded:

Do you like it? If you do, could you like Panopio's page, then my photo?  I don't normally do this you know, but I want the ring so bad. Readers, help me? Pretty please? I would consider this a gigantic favor. Thank you! :) Mwah!

What's new?

Hello, dear readers. I know I'm such a loser for having not posted anything on this blog of mine. You see, I've been pretty busy at work lately, there are piles and piles of editing job and I had no time to attend photoshoots. So yep, no photo to post today.

However, I'd like to introduce to you my new baby. Finally, I have my own domain, yay! You read it right, I have my own .com website! Actually it's been on the internet for a month already.

That's it. I titled it Zeros and Fives to give "honor" to my very petite physique. While this Blogspot is the haven of my photoshoot escapades,  Zeros and Fives houses mostly fashion reviews and articles. If you like it enough, please please please follow me through Bloglovin' or subscribe via e-mail or RSS feeds. I would also be very grateful if you click on my ads (I'm serving Nuffnang) so that I could maintain the site.

Keep on visiting this blog, I might have another photoshoot soon. Toodles! :)

Meg Face Search 2010

Less than a week ago, I found out I made it to Meg Magazine’s Face Search Top 40, a day late for the panel interview. So my chance of being in the top 10 got forfeited. To my surprise though, Meg texted and informed me that I am still part of the Top 10 Reveal party. Yay! Afterall, I’m still one of the top 40 candidates (out of 673 applicants, by the way). My call time for hair and make-up was at 1:30 pm at Bench Fix Training Salon.

Make-up was courtesy of The Face Shop, impeccably done by Jhag Reyes.

Hair masterpiece was by Jesse Laroga of Bench Fix Salon.
Well, just posting my awesome camera shots (HAHA!) from last night’s Top 10 Reveal at Trio Restaurant and Amber Ultralounge at The Fort Entertainment Center.

It says: AMBER VIP. VIP yo!♥

I reserved this pass for one person. Sadly, he didn’t make it. :|

I got to meet wonderful and totes gorgeous ladies instead. They became my buddies during the event. :)

Tanja Winheim and Kristal Tavarra

With Sarah Meier look-alike, Grizelle Gratela
I don’t have any other decent-looking photos. I’ll probably post some more if someone from the event tags me. But if you are still itching to see some photos, you can check them out at my Facebook account album. I warn you though, it’s not a pretty sight. HEHE.

I wasn’t able to take lots because it was too crowded and dark inside. We left the place after the announcement of the Top 10. There were celebrities and very infuential people present. I felt kinda iffy staying longer there.

Anyway highway, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people who congratulated me and who were happy for me. Thanks also to Nez for lending me her camera and to Balot for letting me crash at her place because mine was too far away from Taguig. Thank you guys! Love lots! Mwah!♥

Here are the the gorgeous ladies who made it to top 10. You can start voting for them on Tuesday at

L-R: Bea, Madge, Margo, Christia, Monique, Maya, Deb, Phoebe, Yumi, Danna

I’m rooting for Christia Asistio and Yumi Arima as they were really nice to me. But based on yesternight’s event, I’m getting the feeling that Bea Lozano will win. Hmmmm..

All the best, girls!

*Just click the photos to enlarge. :)

how was last night's event?


It was great! I met a lot of wonderful and uber gorgeous girls. It was so nice getting to know Tanja, Zelle, and Kristal. they were like my buddies all throughout the event! There were lots of popular people, too. I was so sad not being able to take a picture with Saab Magalona though. She was there. And Ms. Peewee Isidro (the Editor and Chief of Meg)'s outfit really struck me, even more when she approached Tanja and me to thank us. I'll tell more about the event in my tumblr and blogspot blogs. Maybe tonight. Oh, did you catch us last night? We were on live streaming at :)

curious much?♥
