Let’s Chase The Sun

I can never stay put in one place for a long time. I think that’s pretty obvious. Every few months or so, I long to travel the world and see something new. This is why I love the “Wrangler Sun Chaser Challenge“–a month long event from April 14 to May 11 across 9 countries in the […]

Center Part

When I first saw this dress, I was a little skeptical. That slit right smack in the middle looked dangerous! But because I trust that Style Staple knows my body well, I still tried it on and wore it out. To my surprise, no Lindsay Lohan situation ensued. Amazing. It must be in the way […]

Five Oh One

These days, my motto is–the shorter, the better. I can’t bring myself to wear anything long because the heat is just insane! So what’s my weapon of choice to fight it off today? My Levi’s 501 shorts! They’re keeping me equipped for the long day ahead of me. Since they’re in distressed denim and have little white […]

Beat The Heat

Beat the heat with a dip in the pool. Although there’s no pool in sight here in my photos because there was a couple making out inside the pool. Insert awkward emoticon here, the one with the really big round eyes and red cheeks. Anyway, couple-professing-their-love-to-the-world aside, here’s the latest addition to my growing collection […]

Mint Condition

Now that I’m past the first quarter of my life, assuming I live until a 100 years old, (Oh dear God, I don’t think I want to reach a century old) it feels a tiny bit different. 26 just doesn’t have the same ring to it as 25. But even so, I’m #proudofmyage. (You can’t take […]

Lace All Over

Who needs fancy backdrops if you’re wearing a dress as beautiful as this? With lace sewn all over my tulle dress, I’ve got all the drama I need. I’m actually pleasantly surprised at how much lace is on this dress, not to mention good quality lace. As a consumer, it feels like I hit the jackpot. I mean, […]

Festival Fever

There’s nothing like a big music festival to kick off my summer festivities! Last April 5, Closeup brought some of the biggest local and international DJs, namely Marc Naval, Martin Pulgar, Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Helena, Alesso and Deniz Koyu together for Closeup Forever Summer. Being one of Closeup’s brand ambassadors, I couldn’t help but feel proud […]

Make Up Tutorial + Blog Giveaway: Enhance (CLOSED)

After 10 long years, I finally came around to making another makeup tutorial for you. I’m so sorry for the delay. I know there have been plenty of requests for this, but as much as I want to pretend I’m a makeup guru–I’m not. I’m just really not. I’m messy and impatient when it comes to […]

Roponggi

Good food is always one of my top priorities whenever I travel, so on my last day in Tokyo, I made sure to add another restaurant in my growing list of Japan “musts”. The restaurant is called Mercer Brunch, located at Roponggi. It’s a good thing that Tricia and I are both foodies so even if Roponggi […]
