Hello Sunshine! Few days ago, I've been super super super hooked on Taylor Swift's song RED. I know it's not a new song, but I've been jamming on it! Which then inspired me to write about a red evening. Few days ago, I did a round up of dress trends in the color champagne. Today, I'm going to share my fashion recommendations for fierce evening dresses for 2015. It's all about the hot red colors to wear on an evening party. Oh, because it's important to note... my recommendations are of course Taylor Swift dress inspired! Let's do this and take Tay-tay's cue on the hot red color to wear on evening party because evening dresses 2015 should be of styles that can stay, stay, stay.

Hello Sunshine! May I go on and say it feels like the last day of the year. I'm not looking forward to Christmas because I have unlearned celebrating its eve, more so the actual 25th, quite well. Funny how I was more into the Christmas shopping and gift giving that ensued past few weeks.

But that's not to say that I'm not overall optimistic about the remaining days of 2014. This year was wild! It was so full and rich and ripe. I just can't believe I've reached this moment where it's time to pick it--off the floor or a high point of the tree--depending on my mood.

Hello Sunshine! Few days ago, the #SportsKoAyosDito was uploaded on YouTube. The first time I saw this video, I was already touched. I love how the campaign inspires people to go ahead and try out that one thing they want to try. It reminded me of my chummy email signature almost ten years back: "go, do that one thing. do that one thing and go."

Today, I have more bike-related news perfect for those looking for bikes whether to have a healthy mind and body, to help reduce one’s carbon footprint, or to help commuters save money.

Hello Sunshine! Before I begin this post, I want to introduce to share with you a photo of my mom and I, pic-stitched for my convenience... cause you see few days ago, I was trying to see where we look alike, as most people always note!

Hello Sunshine! How's the holiday traffic going? Last night, I had the most horrifying cab ride. I couldn't go home because uber surge was just death! And it was already midnight, I was so tired... so I took a cab and agreed to adding extra on top of the taxi meter. Now, just when you think that's the worst part of my trip, you're wrong! The cab driver went on and on about how he takes advantage of passengers when there's just too many out on the streets. It was really creepy. He even teased about how I look like I'm moneyed that's why he asked me to add extra on the fare... it was so bad. I felt very unsafe...

Anyway, I'm OK and I just wanted to check up on you guys. I hope everyone's OK too. Always make sure you're street smart especially when you're commuting!

Now for the bit of good news. Last week I enjoyed a wonderful evening with my Sample Room family. We had our Sample Room Christmas Dinner and it was definitely filled with love. This Christmas is extra special for me because I feel like I have so many things to be thankful for. It was a pretty good year despite the unexpected turn arounds. I look forward to 2015 with a bit of fear on my knees... but my head is up high. I learned a lot the past year and I feel more ready to face more adventures and self-discoveries!

Hello Sunshine! Last Thursday was a party like no other. It was our company Christmas party and yours truly was the host! Well, it was last minute of a notice because Jilian, supposedly the host, got sick and couldn't make it. So two days before, the Christmas committee asked me to host our event. Now, since I wasn't part of any performance due to my post-operation concerns, I was thrilled to say yes! I even prepared a 5-outfit change that delighted some (hopefully most) of my colleagues! All-out host, that's who I am!
