I've never imagined myself wearing corporate attires when I was little. Those black, stuffy, padded blazers are definitely not my thing. Growing up, I was actually a weird girl. I'd pick out my own clothes and wear clothes that would stand out even if I get weird stares from people. I have always hated wearing uniforms because I don’t like wearing the same thing as others. College became a huge relief for me because I could go to school in any outfit that I want.

When I was young, I also wanted to become a host of The Lonely Planet, or become an astronaut, or write story books for kids, or become a fashion designer, or anything unusual. It’s either I get a fun job or I don’t want to become an adult. I saw the adult world as plain and boring. Adults had to do stuff routinely. Go to work, pay the bills, clean the house, do the dishes, etc. Although I realized when I was getting older that becoming an adult is inevitable. I had to become one. But nonetheless, I, too, have realized that being an adult can be also fun and fashionable.

Photo from starpulse.com

As an aspiring lawyer, it is important that I look polished and presentable at all times. Dresses, heels, and most importantly, blazers, are now part of my daily wardrobe. While I like to keep things simple whenever I go to law school, I still make it sure that I incorporate cool and fun stuff like neon accessories or printed pieces. We all know that corporate attires have always been in black or neutral tones. Well, I prefer mine to be in pink. In my opinion, pink is the new black. Corporate world, or any other field, is no longer restricted to men and I don’t want to wear black just because I had to fit in a man’s territory. Women should be empowered and simply themselves. Think Elle Woods.

I am disappointed that most of the stores still do not carry unconventional corporate attires. That’s why I’m thankful I found The Ramp Crossings! All of the pieces in my set (except the bag :p) was from their site. They are truly a one-stop fashion shop. You could get their gorgeous items not only from their stores, but also from their online shop, therampcrossings.com. They carry in their store different clothes, shoes, and accessories that would match any style. If you haven't been to any The Ramp store, you should visit one now. I've been to the branch at Quezon Ave. and there are lots of pretty dresses and other clothes on sale and the shoes are drool-worthy, too!

I may now be an adult now, but I'll always be forever young and girly at heart. Thank God for The Ramp Crossing cause their amazing pieces definitely matched my Polished in Pink style! I bet their items will match your style, too. :)



What's your style statement? :)

What's In My Weekender Bag?




My family and I loves to have a mini vacation every once in a while. We'd book in a hotel for the weekend so we could just relax and have fun. The best part about staying in a hotel is probably being lazy and of course, swimming. So if I'll be given the chance, here's what I'll pack for the weekend:


1. Geometric Print Tote by Suy
  • Would definitely bring this one! It's cute, has a nice print and is very roomy. Even Z's things would fit inside. :)


2. Wanderlust High Waist Bikini
  • This sexy swimsuit would cover up all the battle marks on my tummy and flaunt all the good stuff!


3. Get Laud Talma Dress
  • Pretty, pretty, pretty! It's so gorgeous, I'd wear it to sleep. Haha!


4. Ray-Ban Craft
  • My dream aviators! ♥


5. The Little Things She Needs Chain necklace with pendant
  • This necklace is simple and cute! Perfect for the weekend.


6. Real Pill Sandals
  • Strappy sandals are absolutely perfect for a staycation. They are classy and comfy. :)


Too bad this will have to wait cause law school keeps me busy as a bee. Anyway, all the items featured here are from Zalora.com.ph! It was hard to do a wishlist cause they are offering so much great products in their online store. :p Don't forget to use the discount code MishRendon1 to get 10% on your orders. :)

P.S. I'll reply to comments after my exams! Please bear with me. :)

Lazy Sundays





What I love about Sundays is that I get to spend some time with my family despite our super duper busy schedules. We rarely see each other cause my sisters and I are busy with school while my parents have work. Z stays at home all the time with our ate and kuya at home. I always make sure that I spend some time with him before I go to school cause he's usually already asleep whenever I get home.

Anyway, this particular Sunday, we went to Eton Centris cause it was the nearest place open at that time. We went there at around 5 in the morning after dropping off my sister who participated in the Run for the Pasig River. I actually wanted to join myself, but I wasn't able to register. We had breakfast at Shakeys then we went to the tiangge. We were able to buy some Carters overruns for Z for only P75 per item. We also bought more food cause there are lots of unique and cheap cuisines there. :) I actually took lots of photos but unfortunately, my memory card got corrupted again and these were the only photos I was able to recover.

Sweater - Thrifted
Jeggings - 168 Mall
Bag - Nine West
Necklace - c/o Oasap.com
Ring - 168 Mall
Glasses- c/o Firmoo.com
Shoes - Solemate from SM Department Store

How do you spend your Sundays? :)

Supreme Court Tour


My classmates and I went to the Supreme Court one Friday for our Legal Research and Bibliography class. Where I studied my undergraduate course, UP Manila, is actually located beside the Supreme Court and I happen to pass by the SC building almost every single day for the past 3 years, but I have never been inside. So even if I'm so fed up with Padre Faura St. (:p), I still went with the tour just to satisfy my curiosity and besides it's required and it's not everyday that you'll be given a chance to get inside.


This is where the En Banc sessions of the Supreme Court are being held.



That's the seat of the Chief Justice at my back. :)


Dress - 168 Mall
Blazer - Mom's
Bag - Guess
Necklace - R&K Manila
Prescription Glasses - c/o Firmoo.com
Shoes - Scarlet flats from Zalora


Well the tour was not really a tour, but more of an introduction and explanation of the history and the features of the Supreme Court. But nonetheless, I learned a lot. And I was really amazed to see a place that I only get to see in the television. Maybe someday, I'll be working in this same institution. Hmmmm. We'll see. :)

Planning for Z's 1st Birthday


Z's birthday is still more than a month away, but I can't help but feel worried about not having prepared everything yet. It's not like a wedding or something that needs long preparation, but I wanted to throw the best party cause it's Z's 1st. I was actually relaxed about the idea of the party because I was thinking that I still have a long time to plan and prepare for the birthday. But it suddenly hit me that one and a half month would go by really fast. So here I am trying to figure out if I am missing something or if there is something that I can improve.

I realized that birthdays are more complicated than baptisms. While baptisms have more elements into it, birthdays are more intricate and detailed than the other. Planning for Z's baptism was in my opinion easier cause there was no pressure to have it extravagant. I've always wanted it simple and intimate. I did have a hard time working on Z's baptism because of the limited time, but still it went well because of the small number of guests. However, this time we decided to invite more guests who were not able to come to the baptism.

So here are the things I have prepared so far:

1. Venue
  • Long before the party, we have already planned to have it at either Mcdonalds Regalado or Jollibee Regalado which are, by the way, opposite with each other. :p Anyway, we decided to have it in Mcdonalds because the party packages are a little bit cheaper than the latter and we like their food better.
  • What I like about having it in a fast food restaurant is that they offer everything that you need. The food, host, decors, loot bags, invitations are already inclusive in the party package or are available at their store.

2. Theme
  • We initially wanted a Sesame Street theme. However, Mcdonalds does not carry that theme. We have to decided between Mickey Mouse, Ronald Mcdonalds and Gang, and Toy Story. We chose Toy Story. We'll do the Sesame Street theme next time. :)

3. Guest list
  • We have already reserved food with Mcdo for 80 guests. We haven't finalize our guest list yet, but we might exceed 80.

4. Costume


  • Since we're having a Toy Story theme, Z would be Woody! :) I haven't bought the costume yet cause the seller's not yet sure if there's still a size for him. *crossesfingers* It's quite hard to look for costumes at this time cause Halloween's coming soon. As for me, will probably go for a Barbie costume. :p

5. Invitations and Tarpaulin
  • There were 30 pieces of invitation that were included in the birthday package. I'll give those to Z's godparents and other relatives. As for the other guests, will probably send an e-invite again just like what I did in his baptism. I already downloaded a template and I'll just edit it using Photoshop. :)
  • I am not sure if I'll print a tarpaulin cause Mcdonalds already has one. Will have to inquire first with them regarding this.

6. Souvenirs
  • Also included in the package are 30 pieces of loot bag with Toy Story toys. Will probably add candies in the bag. :)
  • My mom rented a photobooth to serve as a souvenir for the adults. I am pretty sure that they won't appreciate figurines and stuff. I am not sure which supplier my mom got.

7. Cake Supplier
  • We initally wanted to get the cake from Mcdonalds to save ourselves some time and effort but they only have generic birthday cakes. I decided to get Sheryberry cause I've heard some great reviews about her at SP Forums. Unforunately, she's already fully booked. I'm considering other bake shops, but they do not respond asap. :( I want a one or two layer cake with a Woody topper. If you guys have any cake supplier suggestions, please comment below. :)

8. Photo Services
  • I am not sure if I'll get one. My dad has a nice camera, but I think no one can deal with taking the photos during the party, just like what happened during Z's baptism. Will have to talk my mom into this. :)

That's my list so far! If you have suggestions please comment below or send me an email to starmishie@ymail.com or tweet me at @superstarmishie. :) Thanks!


PS, Zalora's having a huge sale this weekend only! Check out the poster for more info. :)

Lens Village - Geo Angel Green Lens CM-833 Review



I've got a few lenses already open so I had to wait for a while to open this pair. Mind you, circle lenses expire. Even if some of them lasts for a year, it is still not advisable to keep them for that long because the lenses might get contaminated with bacteria due to frequent use and exposure. Anyway, this pair that I'll be reviewing is the Geo Angel Green Lens CM-833. This pair was generously sent by Lensvillage.com. :)

Info about the Geo Angel Green Lens CM-833 from Lensvillage.com:


Diameter : 14mm
Base Curve : 8.60mm
Water Content : 38~42%
Life Span : 1 Year
Power Available : 0.00 to -8.00


Packaging and Service:



This came in with the Geo Fresh Brown Lens that I have previously reviewed. As I have said, Lensvillage.com was really prompt in responding to emails and sending out the lenses. It was really nice and generous of them for letting me pick out a pair that I wanted to review and for sending lenses with prescription. Some online shops would not allow me to pick a specific pair, but of course, I have no compaints! :)

The vials were placed in a styro-like wrap and an instruction manual was also included. They also included this cute lens case! I have been trying to figure out what animal is this one. When I saw the photos, I realize that it is actually a frog. LOL!

Color, Design, Enlargement and Comfort:



Geo Angel Green Lens CM-833, or the Angel Series of Geo in general, is one of the most popular circle lenses pair nowadays, together with the Nudy Series of Geo.  I think Geo circle lenses was the first circle lens brand to be sold in the Philippines, aside from Fresh Look of course. They're not even available at local optical shops. You have to go to a trusted seller and purchase your circle lenses from Korea. You may get them of course from Lensvillage.com and they ship all over the world, including the Philippines. :)

Anyway, this pair of lens is really green! Basing from the container it looks like a really light shade of green. When worn, it blends with my dark eyes which minimizes the green. But nonetheless, it is still very green and I am definitely not disappointed! The design is really pretty and it is really visible when near, but it does not look too natural for my liking. The limbal ring is definitely effective in making my eyes appear larger. These are only 14mm lenses, but the enlargement is more visible than the Geo Fresh ones. This one would be something I'd wear to a party or an event, but not on an everyday basis.

As for the comfort in using it, I'd say that I did not encounter any problems with this. They're just as comfortable with the Geo Fresh Brown Lenses that I have. I could wear them for 4 hours straight without the need for some solution. The print also makes it easier for me to figure out which side is right. :)

Overall, I am really satisfied with this pair. The color, design and comfort of this particular pair is really nice. Lensvillage.com's customer service is also commendable. Although, I am still waiting for a nice occasion to wear it. :) 


Lensvillage.com carries a wide range of lenses including products from GEO Medical, EOS, Dueba and Vassen. I assure you that they have a pair of your chosen diameter and color. Thank you Lensvillage.com for sending this pair! :) Don't forget to check out their sites!
