Street Cred

There’s no denying that I’ve got the biggest collection of clothes in my family but ironically, I’m still the one who scours through everyone else’s closets just to find something new to wear. This time, the helpless victim was my brother. I badly needed a few boyfriend shirts to layer on because I wanted to […]

Spot The Bunny Ears

I just received the cutest boots ever. I mean look at them, they have freaking bunny ears! What’s not to love? They’re actually Finnish brand, Minna Parikka’s signature. You’ll see them on almost all its designs, from boots to loafers. Since they tend to be on the quirky side, the best way to style them, […]

Travel Diary: Teufelsberg (Former Spy Station)

On our last full day in Berlin, Goethe Institut arranged a tour for us around an old spy station at Teufelsberg. I must say, it’s not your usual tourist destination. There were no information centers or big ticketing offices around it. In fact, it’s like a hidden treasure that’s only visible to people who seek it. […]

Travel Diary: Gendarmenmarkt And Checkpoint Charlie

There’s no square in Berlin that’s grander than the Gendarmenmarkt. With the architectural trio that is the Konzerthaus (Concert House), Französischer Dom (French Cathedral) and Deutscher Dom (German Cathedral) all surrounding this square, plus the statue of Germany’s renowned poet, Friedrich Schiller at the square’s center, it’s a tough ensemble to beat. You can understand […]

Travel Diary: Reichstag Building

As I mentioned before, I went to Berlin upon the invite of the German Foreign Office. Although my sister and I booked an earlier flight to have a bit more time to tour the city by ourselves, there are just too many interesting places to cover, all in a couple of days. Good thing the Goethe Institute (who took […]

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 […]

The Rugged Life

I got inspired by my current playlist on Deezer so I thought I’d dress a bit like a rugged rock star sans the boots for my magazine shoot that day. Owen Sarmiento, one of my favorite makeup artists ever, did my makeup for the shoot. He was totally digging my turn to the dark side (both fashion and […]

Windstruck

It’s only been a few days since I got back home from Germany and already, I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of work I have to do before I fly out again next week. I’m not complaining though. I’m sure a lot of you are busy as can be too. But sometimes, […]

Start Fresh

I guess I can’t sit with Regina George then. I wore pink too early in the week. Movies like “Mean Girls” bring me back to the good old days, when I was still in school, buried in my books. Even so, I’ve always paid attention to the way I dress. Skinny jeans, in particular, were my […]
