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 […]

Sky High

A couple of years ago, you would’ve never seen me brush my hair up like this–at least, not voluntarily. My bangs were my safety net. I couldn’t go out without them! It’s as if I’m able to hide part of my insecurities under my bangs. LOL! I’m sure most of you can relate. Us girls, we tend […]

Willkommen In Berlin!

Hello from Berlin! I’ve been here since the 1st of August upon the invite of Germany’s Foreign Office. It’s been a busy few days filled with meetings and sightseeing but like a true blogger, I wanted to squeeze in a quick update from the land of the young and hip. I’m actually on my way […]

Coming of Age

I thought I’d dress a bit more mature today. I am, after all, past the quarter life mark. I remember when I was younger, my mom wouldn’t allow me to wear colors like these. She said they would make me look older than my age. I guess you can say it’s my mom who instilled […]

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 […]

Intercontinental

Just look at this view, taken all the way up from Intercontinental Hong Kong’s presidential suite. Imagine waking up to this every single day. Wow. For a brief moment there, I got to take this all in and pretend I was actually living here. I even dressed the part–choosing to wear something colorful to break the blues and […]

Shine Through

For my second day in Hong Kong, I thought I’d wear something a little bit dressier than my pink outfit that I wore here. Day 1 was already all about simplicity and minimalism so day 2 needed a bit more dazzle. And when I want to dazzle, I don’t skimp on the beads and sequins–no matter […]
