Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Child’s Play: Pop of Red

What I Wore
Polo Blazer: So-En
White Top: Dorothy Perkins
Skirt: Uniqlo
Belt: from England
Purse: RinaRich
Flats: Manueto
Tassel Danglings: FashionConvict
Oversized Black Floral Ring: Broadway Gems
Connector Ring: Thrifted
Heart Bracelet: Thrifted

Before anything else, let me just say that I love all the shots my sister Janine took for this outfit. They’re all very nice, well, at least for me. She really knows my best angles, and I love her for that. Thank you so much sissy! I would post them all here, but there are 35 beautiful photos just for this look. That’d be exhausting, right? I’d bore you if I do so.

Color-popping is in for this season, and I love red a great deal so I thought of making it pop in this achromatic get-up. Red is a very vibrant and stimulating color so I decided to rock my red belt, red velvet tassel dangle from FashionConvict Online Shop and my red Bourjois rouge a levres to add a hint of radiance in my neutral clothes.

I sported this ensemble during my little sister Mikee’s elementary graduation. The sun was so high that day, but I didn’t mind the heat because I know we’d be heading straight to the mall afterwards. I’m aware that this is not summer appropriate because of the dark black and gray hues, but I beg you to spare me of your judgment. LOL!

We went to SM City right after the program to purchase my parents’ gift for Mikee, and to have lunch at Pancake House as requested by the graduate herself. I guess I’ll just have to save that appetizing experience for another blog entry. I’ll talk about it on my food blog series (Gastronomy) soon. Sorry to cut the story short for now, lovelies.

Try and add a pop of color in your outfits too! Don't forget to HYPE this look here. ‘Til the next episode of Child’s Play, pretty dolls! Much love!

PS: I’m sorry if I haven’t been blog-hopping lately. I’m just so busy with school. Good news is, my thesis has been approved, and I’m finally graduating next month. I’m stoked for April 18!

Mystique Shutterbug: Delish Stuff

Hail to the comeback of my long gone photo blog series!
Today’s episode will once again feature one of my greatest destressers – FOOD!
No less than my favorite hot dishes, desserts and beverages!
Less words, more pictures.
Aim, shoot and tell!

Four-cheese Pizza
I get weak in the knees when it comes to cheese and pizza.

My Native Chicken Adobo
Adobo is one of the famous Philippine dishes. One taste, and you’re sure to ask for more!

Mom’s Clams Soup
I love the challenge shell dishes give me. We had this for lunch one Sunday.

Goldilocks’ Dark Chocolate Chips Muffin
I’m not much of a muffin fan, but this is a big exception. I die for anything chocolate!

My Beef Patty Garnished with White Onion & Tomato
To get rid of boredom, I decided to prepare something a little special for myself for lunch and snacks.

KFC’s Combo Meal Overload
This meal includes  1 piece of brownie, chicken, mushroom soup, mashed potato, soft drink and rice.

KFC’s Brownie and Spoonful
I forgot the flavor of this Spoonful, but I think it’s Tiramisu.

Classic Savory’s Combo Meal 3
I just can’t get enough of Classic Savory’s Chicken.

Ferrero Rocher Chocolates
Who won’t fall for these chocolate balls wrapped in gold? I’m melting.

Mini Toblerone

Cadbury, 100 Grand and Butterfinger

Twix Cookie Bar & Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Noir Dark Chocolate
I’ve been spending quality time with chocolates lately. Need I say more?

 Magnum Classic Ice Cream
Of late, this is the Philippines’ newest addition to its dessert market and the most hyped ice cream in the country. Filipinos are all the rage over this smooth vanilla ice cream covered in thick Belgian chocolate.
Now, I just jumped in the bandwagon. I haven’t tried other flavors though, but they say Magnum Truffle tastes divine.

360 Degrees’ Milk Green Tea
Meet my favorite tea beverage that is proudly Davao-based. I go loco for any drink with tapioca! Try their Red and Green Milk Tea. You’ll never regret it!

Save More’s Garden Fresh Salad
I love having raw vegetable salads, not only because of the health benefits; but simply because of the crisp as well! Lettuce, carrots and corn for a nutritious snack.

Red heartSmileRed heart
Don’t you just love rewarding yourself with your much-loved treats
when you feel knocked down with stress?
Food is definitely one of the best ways to cope with any bad vibes.
‘Til next time shutterbugs!
It’s a wrap!

Child’s Play: Color Blocking for Plenary

What I wore
Mini-Floral-Dress-Worn-As-Top: FOVL (Japanese brand)
Polo-Blouse-Worn-As-Blazer: Rosella (Japanese brand)
Skirt: Vintage
Dark Brown Boots: Janeo
Sleek Belt: SM Accessories
Earrings: Gift from Mom
Necklace: from England
Bangle: from England

Two days ago was our Thesis Plenary (final defense), and I’m just so glad and proud to say… I made it at last! We still have a few things to add for our final draft though, but what I’m sure of is that my sacrifice for this major subject is about to end soon. I’m ultimately stoked to don our school’s famous sablay for our much-awaited graduation come 18th of April. Now that it’s nearing the finish line (and it's only a month to go), it’s becoming even more nerve-wrecking! The anticipation is killing me!

Now on the glam side of this post, presentations at school has always been the BA Communication Arts students venue for dolling up. A fashion enthusiast like me would miss chances like this under no circumstance. Of course it’s uncommon for a shutterbug like me, to play dress up without photography. What good are lovely clothes when you don’t get to capture them? That’s just what I personally think. Maybe that might wrinkle your brows, but for me it’s something that I totally dig.

I always plan my outfits days ahead, and with that I mean I have a sort of “dress rehearsal” so that I won’t go panicking in front of my closet on the day itself. I chose to throw in some vivid hues for this get-up to uplift my mood, because I’ve been in some neutral colors like white, black, brown/beige lately. I also decided to wear my mini floral dress as a top, and my blue button-down top as a blazer. I tucked the dress in the skirt, put the blouse over it and cinched everything with the sleek belt.

I love that my printed top and bangle made it pop in my plain color-blocked ensemble. It’s like having two fashion fad in one – print popping and color blocking. How ‘bout that? I also love that the combination of this vibrant blue and yellow shades made a cheerful effect in my mood for this day. Blue is associated to the calm waters and yellow to the bright sunshine, so putting them together definitely helped me be in good spirits that lasted for the entire day, and hopefully for the whole week as well.

How could I not be in a pleasant disposition when I wore clothes that look so happy, and I got one of the best news in my college life? Color therapy and good news indeed have the power to make us feel so great about ourselves! Thank you so much dear God for the blessing! Now I’m off to write the abstract, acknowledgement  and biographical sketch to cap off my final thesis draft. I’m almost done! And oh please hype this look in Lookbook. ‘Til next time and have a good day, lovely dolls!

SVS: Paris Fashion Week

There's nothing quite interesting in my personal life these past few days, so let me just share some lovely photos I found in the web about the latest buzz in the City of Love and Lights... The Paris Fashion Week 2012. Here are my top picks among all the fabulous pieces showcased in the said event.

Yang Du Ready-to-Wear Fall/Winter

Crystal Vision

Beautiful and Beguiling
Valentino Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection

Kanye West Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

John Galliano Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection

Oversized Sleeves
Black and White Trompe L’oeil

Cute Seductress

It's one of my wildest fantasies to get ahead of the fashion pack, and wear even a few of these extravagant collections. I hope someday I get to witness what's hot on and off the runway of Paris. I know it's sort of  impossible to happen, but hey, it's never a crime to dream big right? All I can do is pray.

What do you think about this year's PFW, pretty dolls?
