My Best Friend's Wedding

Hi Pinkmates! I am so sorry I have not been updating my blog.  It has been a whirlwind of too much work!  

Anyway, I have been posting here in my blog that we are preparing the wedding of my best friend Marga.  Her wedding took place last May 4, at Acua Verde in Laiya, Batangas.  
Oh it was just gorgeous! It was mostly DIYs between the bride and her friends (including me of course!).  The wedding is rustic with a color theme of Aqua and Coral... very tasteful!

I am just proud that I am part of this beautiful wedding and I want to share a few photos with you... Enjoy!

All bridesmaids have the same robes!
Isn't my waterfall braids gorgeous?
bridesmaids white dresses
Our make and hair is done and we are set to go to the church!
Look at our parasols!

After wedding ceremony...
We changed into our own outfits during the reception... I wore a shirtdress from Zara
ok.. so that's because of too much Jack Daniels in our body!

I love our photobooth!
the bride and groom!

The day after...
Aww look at this photo... these are my closest friends!
I am at the front, wearing my black one-piece swimsuit from Anemone Swimwear
I couldn't resist having  photos in front of a white boat wearing my nautical outfit! Haha!
Top from H & M and white pants from Dorothy Perkins.  Accessories: Longchamp Bag, hat from Vietnam, shades from Mango and slippers from Havainas

ThePinkMateProject Travel: India - Jaipur, The Pink City (Part 2)

This is my second post for Jaipur.  One thing I love about India is their love for handicrafts, they are soooo good at it! We went around Jaipur and bought some of their handiwork  the details are just unbelievable.  My mistake is I should have bought more items! More scarves, notebooks, pants, kurtas, accessories and wood blocks!  

Puppets for sale.  The little kid is singing for his customers :) Adorable!
Vibrant colors of different bracelets with interesting details!  My mistake I didn't buy any!
We really want to come here, this is the facade of Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing.
Different woodblock designs, I want to buy all of them!
Gorgeous Anokhi scarves, I bought a few of those
he showed us how it's done, he is an artist!
The "Curious George" in me will have to try hand woodblock printing (not easy!)
This is Jal-Mahal, built in the middle of Mansagar Lake
Indian leather shoes sold at the site where you can view the Jal-Mahal
The Market near City Palace (see that peacock print skirt? I should've bought that one! Arghh!)
This camel was being sold to my friend for 20,000 rupees only! Seriously? If only I can bring a camel home I would! I love them!
This is Jantar Mantar - This is an observatory built by Maharaja Jai-Singh II.  Check out the   large sun dial!
This little kiddo is so cute! And I love the color-blocking of this outfit!
I am an ARIAN, a pose under the zodiac sign is a must!
