Come Closer

You know summer is around the corner when Nivea’s invite to its annual beach getaway arrives at your doorstep. This year, the world’s most trusted skin care brand whisked us away to Balesin for an exciting couple of days filled with all sorts of fun under the sun. We toured around the exclusive island, played […]


Back With A Vengeance

Bring out your maxi dresses and maxi skirts girls, boho chic is back with a vengeance this 2015. I still remember it like yesterday when this trend hit it big. I’m not talking about the late 60s to early 70s obviously. I wasn’t even born yet at that time. I’m referring to the late 2000s […]


Wind In My Hair, Sand Beneath My Feet

Us girls and our cravings–it’s a deadly relationship. We crave, we pig out and then when the time comes to hit the beach, we regret. It’s a never-ending cycle, one that my girlfriends and I always seem to find ourselves in. So what do I do aside from regretting ever succumbing to my delicious cravings? […]


Summer Breeze

I’ve been dying to shoot at Balesin’s Mykonos Village since the first time I visited it a few years back. At that time, certain areas of the village were still under construction so I’m glad I got to visit it again with Nivea. As you can see from this and my previous Balesin post, red, white and […]


Dreaming of Mykonos

I may be dreaming of winter and cold weather dressing from time to time but it doesn’t mean I’m not thankful to live in the Philippines–where pristine beaches are abundant and summer practically runs all year round. Just 2 weeks ago, Nivea whisked me away to nearby Balesin where I got to pretend I was in Mykonos during […]


Something Old

It’s only the second month of 2015 which means practically everyone who interviews me for a fashion piece is asking, “what are the trends for the year?” Well, here you go! Today’s style post features 2 of 2015’s biggest trends–fringe and boho. Once again, fashion forecasters looked to past decades for inspiration. (There’s a paradox […]


True Blue

Remember when color blocking was such a huge trend? It may not be as big now but it’s still a huge check in my book. You see, trends may come and go, but if something looks good, trendy or not, it still looks good. Plain and simple. No fashion forecast can ever change that. So […]


Barber Shop

I’ve always loved this particular barber shop’s look located at Hong Kong’s Central district. It’s got that retro quirky vibe that’s bound to get a lot of love and snaps. The vintage television sets, the traditional barber shop sign, the vibrant color of red–totally Instagrammable. Funny how we’ve coined new terms that a few years ago, no […]


The Day I Trekked Mt. Pinatubo

Thanks to V.E.S Travel And Tours, I was finally able to check “trek Mt. Pinatubo” off my bucket list. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, we stayed overnight at V.E.S Food Resort and Villas. We were scheduled to leave the hotel by 5am and start making our way to the base camp by van. […]


Travel Diary: Shopping, Food And Entertainment At Guam

Prior to my trip to Guam, there’s one constant thing I’ve always heard about the place–it’s every shoppers’ ultimate shopping destination. Basically everyone around me has been gushing about how insane the deals are in this shopping paradise because everything here is tax-free. So when Guam Visitors Bureau invited me for Shop Guam Festival (SGF), […]
