It has come to our attention that this blog's first birthday coincides with our 100th post!
We think that's pretty darn cool. :)
It all started with a new camera, a trip to Boracay, and a sudden whim to document our "adventures."
And while we lead pretty laid-back and ordinary lives, it's definitely been a blast sharing our
discoveries and experiences with whoever is at the other end of this site.
This blog is made up of awkward situations trying to take outfit shots while people milled about, giving you strange "what-the-heck-are-they-doing" looks which led to more awkward situations asking the household help to take photos of you instead.
This blog is made up of driving around in circles trying to look for that hole-in-the wall joint with supposedly great food that we read about on other food blogs.
This blog is made up of fabulous night-outs with friends, trying to remember to take photos of what everyone wore and ending up forgetting and just dancing instead.
This blog is made up of countless, endless mall trips looking for interesting things that, at the time, we thought we desperately needed in our lives or closets.
This blog is made up of a handful of out-of-town trips where we tried to make the most of being outside our usual stomping grounds and share all that fun with you.
But mainly, this blog is made up of two people going through life together and making an adventure out of it, punctuated by a bit of traveling, a lot of eating (P), and a ton of shopping (D).
It's been a great ride and we hope you stay tuned for more!
SO. All cheesiness aside, we've drummed up this give-away of sorts to celebrate!
It's definitely not even a blip on the blog radar, compared to epic blow-outs that other blogs give, but it's our simple way of saying hi and thank you to whoever is out there.
A Looking for Lola mini satchel in pink and turquoise!
It's perfect for the color-blocking trend that's blowing up this summer!

2) Here at Shady, we love a good secret.
So, share with us any food and/or fashion find that you are keeping under wraps!
It can be that small yet delicious restaurant in your village, or a shop (online and otherwise) that has just opened up. It could also be an area (ex. Cubao X or The Collective) where there are a lot of discoveries waiting to be found. It doesn't have to be something only literally, you know about.
Just make sure it's one we have yet to blog about. We're sure there's a ton out there!
Now we promise not to let the cat out of the bag by putting the comments on private.
Of course, some secrets are too good not to share!
By joining this contest, you are allowing us to feature your special find on the blog.
It's simple, juiciest secret wins the satchel!
We'd like to apologize for coming out empty-handed for the gents but we (meaning P) promise to do something about it for the next one.
