Personalized Just For Me

Don’t you just wish someone can do your shopping for you? I know, I know. Shopping isn’t really a chore, so it’s nowhere near taxing. But there must be days when you feel lazy to shop, right? When you feel like you just don’t have the time, patience nor energy to browse through so much […]

My Kind Of Mooncake

Coming from a Chinese family, I was introduced to the tradition of the Mid-Autumn or Mooncake Festival at a very young age. Sometime between August and September, my parents would bring us to annual family gatherings to play the dice game. We’d win snacks and toys back in the early days. Gadgets, lifestyle items, money and […]

Country Girl

You can easily tell from my hair color that these shots were taken a while back. I was off to give a talk for Chalk Magazine’s Campus Tour at Far Eastern University that day. It was especially hot then so pants and anything else made with more than 1 and a half yards of fabric […]

The Rugged Life

I got inspired by my current playlist on Deezer so I thought I’d dress a bit like a rugged rock star sans the boots for my magazine shoot that day. Owen Sarmiento, one of my favorite makeup artists ever, did my makeup for the shoot. He was totally digging my turn to the dark side (both fashion and […]

Roland Mouret For Banana Republic

Last Thursday was a jampacked day. I hosted the Freshgear Fashion Faceoff under the scorching hot sun at UST from morning until late afternoon, then went straight to Greenbelt 5 afterwards to host the launch of the Roland Mouret For Banana Republic collection. You can just imagine how I must’ve looked by the time I reached […]

Avon Girl

A few months back, I did a shoot for Avon Fashions’ lookbook with my fellow bloggers Vern and Patrish. It’s going to be out on all Avon brochures from August 16-31, which means you’re supposed to start seeing it only by tomorrow. But because I treat my readers extra special, I’m showing you the editorial first! If […]

Windstruck

It’s only been a few days since I got back home from Germany and already, I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of work I have to do before I fly out again next week. I’m not complaining though. I’m sure a lot of you are busy as can be too. But sometimes, […]

Start Fresh

I guess I can’t sit with Regina George then. I wore pink too early in the week. Movies like “Mean Girls” bring me back to the good old days, when I was still in school, buried in my books. Even so, I’ve always paid attention to the way I dress. Skinny jeans, in particular, were my […]
