What’s Your Scent?

I’m sure we all have that one friend who always, and I mean ALWAYS, smell a certain way. He/she sticks to one perfume and that’s been his/her signature scent for years. Just a whiff of it and you’d know, even without looking, that your friend has arrived. I’m not that friend though. I’ve never been […]

Baby Be Mine

I’ve got a new baby to add to my growing collection. I’ve been eyeing this Saint Laurent camera bag for months now–but because I’m still recovering from my last shopping spree, I thought I shouldn’t indulge myself for a while. But then, my lucky stars lined up and I suddenly spotted this red hot babe […]

Tomboy Chic

You don’t need a lot to pull off the tomboy chic style. It’s basically just getting the right mix of beautifully lousy clothes that would make people think you’re too cool to care about what you’re wearing. But in reality, you do care. If you’ve got a closet full of basics, then maybe you should […]

Travel Diary: Osaka, The Nation’s Kitchen

What better way to end my Japan travel series than with a post filled with the yummiest food we ate while in Osaka? Osaka is after all the “nation’s kitchen”–home of endless gastronomic choices of only the best beef and seafood. I must warn you though, you’ll surely be craving for some Japanese food by […]

Milking It

I don’t know why but this outfit reminds me of a milkman… or a bread boy. Nevertheless, I still like it. This was actually a last minute outfit I put together hastily. I’ve run out of things to wear on our last full day in Osaka so I reused my top and matched it with […]

Travel Diary: Kinkakuji and Maruyama-Koen Park

I’m sure a lot of you know how much I love the color gold, so imagine my happiness when I saw an entire structure covered in gold! Presenting, Kyoto’s Kinkakuji–a Zen Buddhist temple covered in brilliant gold leaf. Originally, Kinkakuji was built in 1397 as a retirement villa for Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. It was only […]

Travel Diary: Arashiyama

At the western outskirts of Kyoto lies another touristy district called Arashiyama. It takes about 30 minutes to get here by train but it’s totally worth the long transit (when I say long, I mean by Japanese standards) especially during cherry blossom and fall seasons. A short walk to Arashiyama’s central landmark–the Togetsukyo Bridge, will […]

Modern Day Needs

Don’t you just hate it when you reach into your bag and it takes you forever to find your phone until you eventually mess up the contents of your bag? Cables get all tangled up and things start unraveling. I, for one, definitely know this story all too well. And I’m sure I’m not the […]

Travel Diary: Fushimi Inari Taisha

Fushimi Inari Taisha or Shrine is the most important shrine dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Several locals visit Fushimi Inari to pray for prosperity for their businesses. Tourist, however, visit this shrine for its visual appeal. Personally, I think it’s one of Kyoto’s most beautiful sights. It’s hard not to be when […]
