The Futbol Fest took place on July 12, 2014 from 7 a.m. to 5:30 in the afternoon, at the Ateneo de Davao University Matina Campus Football Field. The participants were composed of more than 200 students who are 16 years old and younger. There was also an open category participated by local football clubs.

Martish is also one with the Ateneo Athletics’ aim to empower women and exemplify girl power through this Futbol Fest. “We are looking forward to support Ateneo in its vision to make more sports programs for women in the years to come,” Marga Nograles remarked in her opening speech. The fact that this all-girls football competition is the first of its kind in the country makes the partnership very promising.

 The games started at 8 a.m., after the formal opening and ceremonial kick by Marga Nograles, Cong. Karlo Nograles, and Noli Ayo, Ateneo de Davao University Athletics Sports Director.

The games stretched on until 5:30 in the afternoon, and ended with the awarding of the winners and the MVPs.

The winning teams took home individual medals and trophies from Havaianas. Aside from the medals and trophies, the MVP of each category and the open category champion also received Havaianas Gift Certificates which entitle each of them to a pair of Havaianas flip-flops.  

 During the Futbol Fest, the Havaianas Pop-up Shop showcased the Havaianas Teams Collection. Martish also prepared a fun and exciting ‘Free Kick’ Activity for the participants.

The Varsity Chic is one of my favorite fashion trends, taking it's inspiration from sporty jock popularized by high schoolers and College kids. One major don't with this trend is to go all out, you just need to have one key piece that you want to eear and match it with the clothes you got in your wardrobe. You can pair your varsity shirts with a bomber jacket over or a lettered shirt paired with skinny jeans and rubber shoes or sneakers. 

Here's my varsity shirt paired with white jeans and plaid cover-up tied around my waist, I wore this during the press conference for Tomato Time Davao

I know I've been lost for a long while but this time I'll try to post as much as I could so I can update everyone (to those who care lol) on what's happening on my life. :) Last February, I started designing shirts for my self since I'm having a hard time looking for a shirt that would perfectly fit me and will suit my design preference, so why not make my own design and have it custom made. My first design was of course all about florals. My addiction to florals is beyond measure. We see men wearing floral shirts, bags, shorts, socks etc. The floral trend is something fresh to look at, something vibrant and stylish at the same time. 
Showing you the mood board that I made, got the inspiration from guys with tattoos on their chest. Men sporting florals but still looks manly is what I wanted to achieve with my designs. 
Before, when people hear the word "Floral" they would think of the kind of shirts worn at Hawaiian beach, a kind of loud floral prints that don't look stylish at all. I want mine to look subtle, something you can wear everyday without looking tacky. 
Here's my take on the floral trend, subtle touch of embroidered floral details. Not too loud, something you can wear on a casual day without looking boring.

Up next is my varsity shirt, stay tuned!
