Autumn Bloom

As much as I love living in a tropical country like the Philippines, I still sometimes wish we can also experience how it is to have four seasons. Granted, there are plenty of ups and downs that come with a four-season year. I’m fully aware it’s not always like the movies where the sky is the right […]



Here I go again with my never ending race against the sun. I was on the makeup chair, getting prepped for the Style Ko Ayos Dito event when I realized it’s 5PM already and I have yet to take my outfit shots. In a mad dash to beat the sunset, I took these photos halfway through […]


Into The Blue

I know it’s cruel to post bikini photos when some of you are freezing on the other side of the world, but I just couldn’t let our hotel’s pool go to waste. We had some free time on our last day in Chiang Mai so I thought, why not hang poolside? The sun was out again […]


Travel Diary: Loy Krathong and Yi Peng Festival

The main reason why we went to Chiang Mai was because we wanted to witness its famous lantern festival or Yi Peng festival, where thousands of people release floating sky lanterns or khom loi into the sky to symbolize letting go of worries and problems. It’s held throughout Thailand every end of October or early […]


Dhara Dhevi

Although we stayed at Shangri-la Hotel during our trip to Chiang Mai, we decided to check out the famous Dhara Dhevi to see what all the fuss was about. Dhara Dhevi is Chiang Mai’s most luxurious hotel. With 60 acres of beautifully landscaped tropical grounds and modeled after the ancient Lanna city, it greets you as […]


Travel Diary: Elephant Nature Park

My sister and I were adamant about spending a day with elephants while we were in Chiangmai. It was non-negotiable and we were determined to meet these gentle giants. Choosing where to do it, however, was the most important thing. There are plenty of elephant camps in Chiangmai, but among them, Elephant Nature Park is […]


Travel Diary: Golden Triangle and Karen Long Neck Village

We continued our tour around Chiang Rai with a visit to the Golden Triangle and Karen Long Neck Village. The Golden Triangle refers to the point where Laos, Myanmar and Thailand meet through the Mekong and Ruak River. The viewpoint is located on the riverside along Chiang Rai where various points of interest like the […]

It’s every girls paradise, with all our favorite makeup, skincare and hair brands under one roof. Not only that, free skin consultation, makeovers, nail art […]


Travel Diary: White Temple (Wat Rong Khun), Chiang Rai

Our second day in Thailand started early. We were scheduled to go out of the city and head to Chiang Rai to visit its White Temple or Wat Rong Khun. The famous Buddhist temple was designed by Thai national artist Chalermchai Kositpipat in 1997 when the old structure’s restoration works had to be halted due […]
