We bring you this special lady from our beloved homeland -- Philippines. She is a Fashion Enthusiast and also an Architecture student from MapĂșa Institute of Technology. Meet our Aesthetically Speaking's Style Icon -- Shiny Bliss Ortilano.

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and where you live.

I am an architecture student who is passionate about fashion, blogging, and travel. Currently I live in Alabang but my hometown is Iloilo City.

2. Tell us about your blog.

My blog is more like my outfit journal and life happenings. I wrote blogs about items I got from different shops and brands and those that I wear during special events.

3. What inspired you to start your blog and posting your outfits on Lookbook?

One day, I surfed through the net for pink outfits and I was redirected to Kristina Bazaan’s site: I was so amazed by her looks and sense of style. I spent the

whole day reading her blog. At first I don’t have any idea what a blog is, and then I have read on her blog how she started blogging and how she made it. That is then, I

discovered blogger! I was like, (on my mind) OMG, I have to start blogging! I wanted to be like her! It is also on her blog that I came to know, and I started

posting looks and outfits then.

4. How would you describe your style?

Well, I guess it’s more like, wear-whatever-fits-from-my-closet harhar. I love mix and match!

5. Who or what inspires your outfits and style?

I really don’t know what inspires my outfit and styles, I just love to dress up and try new things. I follow trends of different fashion icons and imitate them sometimes,

but I am more like a “whatever fits” kind of person. I just make sure that it doesn’t look “baduy” harhar.

6. What is your personal favorite outfit on by you? (Url here)

My favourite is this
Love the colours on this dress plus it’s a Renee Salud dress! It’s also memorable because this is the one I wore during the pageant.

7. What has been the best experience that has come from blogging?

I guess when I received an email from a certain shop that they would like to collaborate with my blog. Another is a message from Crissa Jeans that they will possibly

affiliate with my blog. (I’m still praying for this one)

8. Are you surprised by the success and popularity of your blog and Lookbook?

Well, I can say that I am not that successful and not that popular in the blogging world and lookbook but I am just contented and happy with what I have right now. But of

course, am also hopping (actually dreaming) to have more followers like Kristina Bazaan, Camille Co, Kryz Uy, and Laureen Uy. Harhar (fingers crossed)

9. Are there any fashion icons or famous people whose style you admire?

Yes! Number one on my list is Kristina Bazaan from and Camille Co from
Others are celebrities and some famous bloggers also.

10. Do you have a favourite quote?
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same” –Coco Chanel

11. A fashion rule you always break:

Wearing accessories, esp. earrings, necklaces and bracelets --- (^-^) because it’s against my religious beliefs.

12. A fashion rule you never break:

I really don’t know, because for me, fashion is freedom hence, you need not to follow any rules or commandments.

13. The first thing you look at in another person's outfit is:

If a person’s outfit fits the season or weather.

14: Do you have any shining moments?

I guess when I won the pageant because it’s my first time to join such kind of event and I won! (parang ang ganda-ganda-ko feeling, harhar)

15. Do you have any style/beauty tips that you can pass along to our readers?

I actually did a post about things I learned about fashion, I guess you guys could find helpful advices here--
