Shadows & Dusk: Portraits

Many months ago, I shot with my good friend Bea (I believe for the third or fourth time, haha!) for a grunge-themed photoshoot. It was really fun to play around with textures and how the sunlight created these beautiful shadows that we had to take pictures of. I absolutely loved how they turned out after editing them, so here are a few of my favorite shots!

Forgot to mention, Bea and I are going to be roommates in college! We got a dorm room outside of Ateneo de Manila University's campus, which I'm super nervous and excited about. Living away from home will be such an adventure, I know it. Hope you're having a wonderful week so far, guys :)

p.s. I recently made a portfolio for all my works (ranging from graphic design, watercolor paintings & photography) which you can check out over at!


Back & Better

After one whole year of not blogging, it was nice to just sit down and work on my newest baby, Oh Wander. After a few days of re-learning how to code and media, welcome to what will be my little internet niche! (Let us take a brief moment of silence for my old blogs, Definitely Screaming and Fleurs Bleu. May they rest in peace *sobs*)

Here are just a few shots taken from my adventures over the past year (I may or may have not taken these from my Instagram, if you're wondering why the lack of landscape photos. Check it out over here if you like.) You could still see some of my old blog posts from what I've tried to salvage, but the comments are all gone, sad to say.

Personally, I learned and grew so much as a person ever since I stopped posting. I joined more organizations, became active and really learned how to hone my talents. I was Media Head once again for Graduation Ball Committee, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Senior year came so fast, and I don't even know what to think as I go into college. This new, grown-up version of me is the same Jianine you've been reading over the past years, but hopefully more entertaining and helpful to you readers!

Cheers to the new, everyone! Here's to our continuous journey together.


days of summer

so it's been almost a month since summer started, and so far it has been a blast! i went mountain hiking (more like 700-steps walking) and island hopping in palawan for four days with my family. unfortunately, my camera couldn't come along on the boat ride cause it isn't water-proof. but, i took it with me when we climbed the 700 steps.

the view was breathtaking, and so worth the unwanted exercise.

have a lovely week, everyone!
