Off The Runway - Fashion Forward DXB SS '17

photos of stylish people on Fashion Forward

I did a little sneaky stunt at Fashion Forward DXB ;) . Apart from my *secret dream* to walk on the runway (if I wasn't 5'1 tall and had the perfect teeth, I swear I'll do it!), it has been my long dream to be standing in the Media Pit capturing runway photos. Winning the Best Use Of Photography on Cosmo Awards got me a special pass and connections like, you know *winkwink*.

Even so, I'd do anything to get a pass but many thanks to Samsung Gulf for organizing this and the super friendly people of Fashion Forward Dubai, it is my honour to present to you a 360 photo of the event place:



I had the most hectic week to be completely honest (with side by side events and parties) and only made it to the Media Pit on the last day for Varoin Marwah's collection. The #LocalGuidesDubai Instameet was a huge success and it went pretty well but I will share that with you guys later.

What I Wore At Cosmo Awards 2016

Black mesh hem plunge dress and glitter heels and clutch from River Island

I'm not used to dressing up like this. If not for the Cosmo Awards, I would've been in my usual jeans and loose top on weekdays and comfy denim shorts on weekends. But I'm getting a lot of messages lately asking me where I got the full ensemble so I guess it is just reasonable to share it here, yes?


50 Shades Of Flamingos

3:00 am and experiencing jet-lag. I just arrived from Amsterland, Netherlands - a trip that has been kept a secret for awhile. From there I experienced another off the charts solo trip where I got to meet different people from different places. I think I missed my deadline, but hopefully this post can still count.


Beat My Summer

Hola friends and lovers and readers and what-nots! I know you missed me, and I do too! It has been a crazy month for all of us here in the sandy pit -  some enjoying the heat (already) and some are not.

Feels Like Spring

Quick break again from my #georgiatravelmoments , I am so loving and enjoying the spring feels here in sunny Dubai before it summer hits,  hello world!

Piknic Electronik Dubai - Season Ender 2016

music festival in Dubai

Before I flood the blog with several posts of my #georgiatravelmoments, let me quickly dump the photos we took from Piknic Electronik Dubai season ender 2016 that happened yesterday at The Address Montgomorie. This is just one of the many music festivals I have attended here and I'm loving how Dubai is adopting this trend from different countries all over the world.

Desert in December - Garage Giveaway Tour In Dubai

I can't exactly describe how grateful I am to be part of something cool. The last quarter of my 2015 has been pretty busy (and was a hell of a roller coaster) but this one has to be shared because to be completely honest, events like this are something that I enjoy the most.

Hola! I hope everyone's having a blast this weekend. I'm taking a rest for a few weeks of going out, geez I feel like I'm all over the city everyday! I'm a little lost for words for the week that has been but I am hopeful that things will get better in the next few days. Last week was really fun with the Instagrammers, that's for sure.

Preppin' Up For Winter

A few more days and we will soon wrap ourselves again on knits and sweat shirts. I've been preparing for this for a few weeks now - gathering all my long sleeves and knitted tops I kept in my luggage because I easily get the chills even for the slightest wind. It's easy to find winter clothes here in Dubai but to be completely honest, it's hard to find an ensemble that fits my size, ha!

I'm trying to keep my promise so hello! I guess I already found "my studio" (inserts evil laugh here). My room mates and I discovered it last week when I was looking for a nice spot to take my outfit photos for a collaboration with a clothing brand. I'm excited for it as well!

Dune London - Autumn and Winter 2015 Preview

Dune London Shoes Collection 2015

And little miss Joy C. is back to covering shoe collection previews! It's definitely not a secret that shoes are my guilty pleasures. Summer is almost coming to an end and when you are in Dubai, you'll notice that the season is changing with the sudden appearance of dundundundun ~ sandstorm.

Lifestyle - Call It A Party


Ohai from Dubai!

You know the season in between winter and summer? We call it spring and this is my favorite time of the year in the UAE - the weather is so nice that all I want to do is go out and have some fun under the sun.

Comfy Dubai and I (Absolutely) Love My Birks!

Hello there!

Probably my first take on OOTD because I'm feeling a little comfy right now. I can still remember the very first time I set foot to Dubai - my relatives from the Philippines have been telling me not to wear my comfy island clothes because the city is very conservative (they said I can get fined with dressing up on shorts and stuff).

The Making Of An Island Girl


My hopes are high when I decided to finally leave for good and work somewhere else where my skills and competencies will be further utilized (nax, lalim) - I'll be an island girl soon. Mid-December, I started collecting sets of "island girl" inspired outfits and accessories so today I'm sharing one.


When I was at Boracay a few weeks back, I noticed that majority of the locals are living in simplicity - laid back hair less the combing, denim shorts, sunnies and hats, flats and all. And this is the kind of life I wanted - no limitations, no boundaries, fly high as you can.

Quite a good decision to drop by Tiendesitas to score some denim shorts and a comfy cotton top, I was able to get a set for less than Php 500. Plus, big sister bought me this hat for Christmas, hihi. So much for a spoiled baby girl. *winkwink*




I just got back to Quezon City to spend my remaining days in the metro with my family - they've been very supportive with my decision of moving to another town and live a life I've always wanted. And I just recently signed up for Instagram.







Few more turn overs and I'm all set. I can't wait to spend every afternoon watching the sunset and cooking dinner of fresh seafood. I can't wait for my nth independence. I can't wait to take pictures and go places and finally meet strangers and share them my stories. I can't wait to find happiness! I'm sooo ready for you 2013!

xOxO,
Joy with a C soon to be an Island Girl of B ;p
