Take A Closer Look

Just when you thought this outfit is for plain jane, take a closer look and you’ll find many surprises. There’s a major strap situation from the back, a couple of side slits, a dainty anklet thrown into the mix, and a sleek new local discovery that is the Ibarra watch. Put them all together and […]

Amor Amorita

This is why there’s never a day I’m not thankful to live in the Philippines. Yes, the traffic does drive me crazy every now and then. The political landscape and our economy aren’t ideal neither.

Appreciating Art in Vietnam

Going into Ho Chi Minh’s Fine Arts Museum felt like I was sneaking into someone’s mansion during the olden times. As it turns out, it was actually originally a mansion before it was turned into a museum. Mr. Hoa, the wealthiest man of Saigon during the 1920s, owned this yellow and white grand colonial-era mansion. […]

Makeup Tutorial: Bright and Beautiful Barely There Makeup

When I met Korean celebrity make up artist, Kim Kang Pil (who is also Banila Co.’s head makeup artist), one of the important tips I remember him telling me was that one does not need to apply so much makeup to achieve flawless skin. You want to achieve a natural-looking flawless skin, not something that […]
