Playing Dress Up

I’ve been so busy lately with all the traveling and catching up with work that I seem to be dressed down a lot these days. This is why it’s a welcome change to be in a tutu skirt and strappy heels once again, complete with hair and makeup from my shoot that day. Oh how I missed […]

A Different Kind Of Glow

Here’s what I wore to Rappler’s round table discussion entitled “Labels As Bullies”. I, along with three other women who are all accomplished in their respective fields, was invited by the reputable social news organization to talk about how bullies use labels to bring us down and how we were able to overcome them. As stated on […]

Granny Love

If real men wear pink, real women wear granny pants and boxy shirts. Who’s with me? I remember a time in my life when I thought spaghetti strap tops and mini skirts were everything. I was young then and didn’t know better. Now that I’m older (and hopefully, wiser), I’ve come to appreciate the beauty of clothes […]

Marshmallow

I thought I’d wear a cheerful outfit for a day of fun and shopping around Hong Kong. I don’t know why but it somehow reminds me of marshmallows. I can’t quite pinpoint if it’s because of the white polka dots, or the overall cuteness of this outfit. It’s even fluffy and soft like a pillow! (See, I sound […]

Travel Diary: Berlin Wall and East Side Gallery

It’s hard not to get interested in politics and history when you’re in Berlin, especially with a history as recent as theirs. Prior to coming to this city, I’ve already heard about the Berlin Wall and how it divided East and West Berlin during the Cold War but that’s pretty much everything I knew about it. Little […]

Travel Diary: Nikolaiviertel (Nikolai Quarter)

Nikolaiviertel or Nikolai Quarter is often referred to as the oldest residential area of Berlin. Technically, it really was. Merchants and artisans settled here in the Middle Ages because it’s located at the crossing of land and water trading routes on both sides of the river Spree. Unfortunately though, most of its medieval lanes and […]

Face-Off

University of Santo Tomas, the Philippine’s oldest university, is beautiful. I may be a proud Atenean but there’s no denying this fact. It’s got a different charm, the kind of charm only a historical institution like UST can ever possess. It’s actually already my third time to visit this campus. Although the first one doesn’t […]

When you need to catch a break from all the stuff that are keeping you busy, sometime’s all you need is to reconnect with your friends and spend a little time with them. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. You don’t have to travel far or do something extreme. A good long day or 2 […]

Welcome To The Dark Side

I’ve officially embraced the dark side—of my hair, I mean. I’ve been trying so hard to darken my then blonde hair that in a span of a month, I dyed it thrice! I’m sure you didn’t notice the change because my hair is just so stubborn. For some weird reason, light colors stick so well on […]
