Full of flavas!

Haven’t you heard and tried Lay’s? Well you missed half of your life ha-ha just kidding. For a brief, “LAY’S” is the name of brand for a number of potato chip varieties also called Frito-Lay. Thinking about slimmed chips, crispy and full of flavors? This LAY’S will definitely and surely satisfy you; I just love it so , so much and you will too! Going out on a picnic with friends or family or maybe your “THE ONE”? Lay’s is a perfect snack, good to pair with any drink too!

Who could be the Lay’s Philippines endorser?
I’m rooting for a person that starts with “N” and ends with “O” and it’s Nico Bolzico, who’s with me?! I’ve been a fan of the relationship of Solenn and Nico, they both look cute and fun together like totally #RelationshipGoals (more love and laughter!). They ‘re not finicky… super laid back, both are so natural! I can surely tell that Nico is the messy one and the loud one around with Solenn ha-ha, if you don’t believe me check out Solenn Heusaff’sVlogs on Youtube; you will burst in tears of laughing. I can see it through on his Instagram posts and stories (Nico’s captions though), Nico is one “full of flavors” means he is full of adrenaline and has a jolly attitude with a different persona. He’s the one! About that, I don’t know if you have noticed his Instagram account stories, if you haven’t, here are some of my screen caps and he really deserves to be! Enjoy! 

Let’s Go Nico Bolzico for Lay’s Philippines!!!
Lay’s is all about great and different flavors, So with the different faces and persona Nico has, it’s an easy choice!
Good Luck, El Bolzico! #NicoforLays

Till my next blog!

Oh no, I forgot about summer!

March XX, 2018
Location: Philippines
Outfit: Batik T-shirt, Faded wash jeans, yellow specs (accessories)

What are your plans this summer 2018? This year I wanted to have my summer a surprise, the feeling where everything happens suddenly. Actually I got no summer plans “yet” this year, but I’m hoping it to be one of the most summer-ish summer I had. Let's say "We are planning to go to places" , but to avoid jinx let’s keep it to ourselves ha-ha. Another one, do you already have something to wear whether the beach tropical vibe or maybe go to places with a frigid weather? Let’s talk about some local made tops. Now it seems that dyed t-shirts like ombré and some kind are being the trend. Now I got this red “batik” shirt from a local barter in our city. BATIK is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using this technique originated from Indonesia. I just  love how comfortable to wear this T-shirt is, to pair it up; I’m wearing a lemonade full Lukas (the lukas is designed without a nose bridge and features ultra light metal rims and a top bar. it’s your favorite classic but better.) specs by @sunniesstudios to have a bit of a tropical mood and a high-rise faded wash jeans by @PAIGE to complete my snatched lewk. Don’t forget to AMA (ask me anything) through email or DM’s on Instagram: Ethriel Lao for some questions!

Ethriel: Goes back to basic

March 10, 2018
Location: Zamboanga City, Philippines
Outfit: stated down below....

Black and white comes along, every time my friends ask me “ethriel, how many (black, white and gray) shirts you have, can we have some?” and follows “ha-ha”. So you probably have noticed my old posts on instagram on being a basic boy on your feed. Well, I really love monochromatic colors forevs!!
Have you tried keeping some of the things you bought then suddenly it pops out in your closet and the worst is that you never knew it was there? Well, it’s a big yes for me. So I found this “fanny pack” of mine if I’m not wrong, I bought it on a thrift shop last 2 years ago and i’ve only worn it now (lol at me) I think it was just 30 pesos… so I look like someone who is going to collect some debts but it came out a little bit like that, then some also tells me “you’re on the trend man” and I was like “really, naah don’t flatter me ha-ha”. My outfit here is just a simple one, my top is a Ralph Lauren white shirt and paired it up with a black denim jeans from Penshoppe, a black sneakers from Adidas. Now, I’m ready for our university wash day! Have an awesome week you guys and enjoy!

What’s inside your closet? Yellow there!

Yellow (hello) there! Who loves yellow? I didn’t liked yellow though, because it seems to make me look so haggard (I don’t know, that’s what I feel ha-ha). But, I’ve realized yellow seems a trend right now; why not? So I tried and that came out good. That yellow over-sized shirt was I think I bought it online and found it inside my closet, I tried wearing it a day and it looks kind a golden state shirt but no ha-ha. I guess some love it and right now I’m starting to love yellow too. So I paired my yellow over-sized shirt to a gray sweat pants and a black sneakers to give it so called a “lazy ootd lewk”, literally I looked like I just woke up ha-ha! So what are your thoughts of me wearing yellow?

Doing it the street style way.

Nowadays, trends in fashion are having a huge part on social medias; like having your way of styles and comfort on the outfits you wear. Here you could share your ideas to your followers and friends or friends of friends in your circle. Have you ever had a choice where in that “what should I wear?” or “if this could suit me so well” in you everyday lifestyle? Me, when it comes on weekdays I got no problem at all; aside during Wednesdays and Fridays, well probably include Saturdays. Every day, I usually wear my university uniform (college) but on Wednesdays, we are required (on course) to wear our corporate attire; and on Fridays and Saturdays are our wash days. But it still keeps me on wrangling myself on or what to wear for the next day; that’s why before hand I prepare the things and my outfit for a certain occasion and also for the next one that I would wear. Here, I’m wearing a striped T-shirt from @reyonlineshop, Statement Tote Bag from @huntselect and  Track Pants from @Lilclosetzambo and of course with a pair of Adidas NMDXR1 with Mastermind Japan  to complete the style.

New Year, New Life?

Ethriel Lao ( Lifestyle x Menswear Blogger )

It’s a new start once again, how was your 2017? Mine was indeed an indelible one, we’ll know that life in this world is just temporary and life in everyday comes with circumstances that is impossible to endure such pain. Now change, great things never came from comfort zone; a lot can happen in a year. That’s why I thank life for slapping me to reality every single day. Family, Friends, Enemies, Fake Friends (yeah ha-ha) and so many more, I thank you guys for pushing me to be what I am now; I feel so delighted to have you in my life.

To my sibs (incomplete), I know you guys love me (ha-ha) ,you guys are not so little anymore. I still remember the days when we’re still kids and I kind of miss it. We fight, we laugh and we stay in one roof and all the troubles that we’ve been through is a memory to kept. To my lovely readers, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter friends, I thank you a lot. It’s been a roller coaster ride, I got to meet new people, I make new friends and most of all I gain knowledge. To our most loving and caring Mama and Papa, we love you. We aren't here now if it wasn't because of you. But, I never really did asked myself if I’m ready for 2018, is it still the Ethriel 1.0 or an upgrade to 1.5? We can’t see the change in us, but others can see what change has made us. Good Bye 2017 and hello 2018! Till the next blog!
 Happy New Year and have a blastful 2018 y’all, keep me posted!!

ABV Christmas Party 2017

(check out Ateneo Blue Vigors Facebook for more infos. )

Enjoying the holidays?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year once again. Well, before this year ends how bout reminiscing some good and fun memories you had this 2017, what and how was it? So here’s one of my favorite blasts this year. (Drum roll...) T’was the Ateneo Blue Vigor’s Christmas Party 2017, last year was also one where in we had the “alter ego” theme kind of party; but this year is still the same, the usual party; BUT! Everyone wore their best costume they had ever worn and picked. This year’s Christmas Party was inspired by Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon outfits that you won’t ever believe that we came prepared and stayed in character. Everyone was so competitive during the games we had, and without you knowing even during dividing tasks; still everyone’s head in the game. (Ha-ha) Everything, the food, the place, all of them were so amazing and the weather; perfect! Imagine you’re in Baguio City, so  called the “City of Pines,” it’s particularly popular in summer due to unusually cooler weather, that’s the feeling up there. And chilling’ with close buddies up there won’t clearly miss a thing. 

Try to guess who I were on that night?

Let’s cut this off, let me show you some of the theme inspired outfits that we prepared and stayed in character the whole awesome night!
