Rockeoke Shoot with Mene

Just this weekend, we decided to do something we haven't done for quite a while...we had a photoshoot.

It has been a while since I last sat down and thought of what I wanted to do for a shoot. I used to love doing it in my photography class in school, the part where I put myself to thinking what elements I want to see in an image, or what I want to be included in a picture.

So this past Sunday afternoon, me and my brother, partners in crime, set out to try shooting my sister's best friend, Meneline. In the end, we were all pleased with the results, including the model.

Photographer: John (My brother)
Stylist/Make-up & Post: Jane (Moi)
Lighting: Cherille (My sister)
Model: Meneline

This one isn't rockeoke, but I thought this brooch could make a really cool hairpiece.

She's wearing the lace glove I made! :)

Rock on!

Just an experiment. :)

If you want to be the subject of our experiment, feel free to leave a message. One friend at a time though! ;)

Glove Love

What can you do with a swatch of black lace about 12" long? You can do what I did and make a glove out of it! What I did was I took another glove bought at a costume store for just about P50, and studied how it was done. I think it's pretty cool. Mine is not full gloves, I cut out the lace for the fingers part, so I could freely move my fingers. In the end, I think it looks kind of Madonna-ish back in the 80's era.

Oh so yummy! I love the idea of beginning to play with new colors. One of my five sisters just gave me this starter make-up kit to play with. Yes, I did say five, I do have five other older sisters, and yes I did say starter. Not that it's my first time to be wearing make-up, (believe me, I've been putting it on since 5th grade). I say it's a starter kit because this time I want to put it on others, I want to learn how to apply make-up on somebody else. And what better way to start than to start with some close friends or relatives? Hahaha, to my dearest friends, I look forward to having a lot of fun with you guys. I've never heard of the brand though, it's not MAC or Dior, or even just Maybelline...its by a brand called The Color Workshop... I know, I've never heard of it either, maybe I'll do some research...but hey, you'll only be wearing it for a few hours right? It's not like it's going to be used everyday. ;)
Happy Saturday night y'all! ;) - Jane

Caran d' Ache

Speaking of things that have last, here's another that has lasted perhaps 10? 12? years... A sign that I need to paint more?
It's my Caran d' Ache watercolor set. It's really old, handed down to me from my oldest sister, senior to me by 12 years. Despite it's age, the color and consistency is still great. Perhaps products from this Swiss brand is really meant to be handed down from one artist to another.

See? It still paints pretty well. :)
I do hope to finish this work and have it framed soon, so I can display it on my wall at home. :)


There are some things that can last a long time, just like these rocker studs I've had for almost 8 years...I've been looking through my stuff and found these, I used to wear them almost everyday for a while when I was in high school, when I was a really big fan of Avril Lavigne. I think I'll wear these tonight. :)

Happy 1st Birthday!

I know it's weird that I'm blogging about a dog's birthday, I can't help it. He's my cousin's vegetarian chow chow named Dale (he got his name from Chip n Dale?). He's really cute and warm in person, and he just turned one today. Most of the time he just lies around, but sometimes he gets really hyper, and when he is, it's a sign that he either wants to poop or pee. :D

From the Philippines...Bandolino

My first blog entry and my first pair.

Just this weekend, my brother and I went to the shoe capital of Manila, Marikina, and got these new boots. I got it from a store that still sold Bandolino Leather shoes, a brand that goes decades back and is known for the quality of their leather goods.
I've come to realize I've never invested in boots, these are my first pair, technically - since I've reached my full feet size (I do not count the boots I wore as a child). I guess I could partly blame it to the tropical weather in this country, which makes boots irrational to buy. I do hope I'll be able to use it much in this weather, or better yet, I hope to travel more this year so I'll find reasons to use them. :)
Peace out! - Jane :)
