Earning My Stripes

Stripes just might be one of my all-time favorite prints. I’ve never noticed it until now, but I seem to gravitate towards striped pieces when it comes to my sartorial choices. For some reason, they all look different to me and I just HAVE TO have them, especially when they’re in black and white. You won’t believe […]

Second Chances

There’s no shortage of beaches here in the Philippines. You’ve probably figured that out already through my countless blog posts featuring clear blue skies, fine sand and enchanting waters. For this reason alone, I think my constant need to buy new swimsuits is justified. (Hi Mom, are you reading this? LOL.) My latest swimwear hoarding […]

La Dolce Vita With FitFlop

I must admit, I’ve never owned a single pair of FitFlop prior to this trip. I’ve always heard good things about them though. “They’re super comfortable!” is always the first thing my friends would say whenever they rave about their FitFlop. I was just always quick to dismiss the brand and say they’re not for me. But then […]

On A Serious Note

It’s been a long time since I’ve worn a business casual outfit on my blog. So to make sure you corporate ladies don’t feel left out, here’s a black and white look you can rock at the office. It’s not quite power dressing but it’s serious enough without being too stiff. I actually wore this […]

Rubbing Shoulders

When rain starts to pour, you know summer is almost over… at least here in the Philippines. I thought I’d be happy when this day comes. It’s been so hot these past months, getting out of the comforts of an air-conditioned room has been a constant struggle. So understandably, with the rainy season around the […]

Second Skin

Women and lace, they go hand in hand like bacon and eggs, coffee and milk, peanut butter and jam…(I’ll stop the comparisons here before I make you hungry.) I’m sure you get the picture. In my opinion, no other fabric understands women like lace does. Whenever a woman dons a lace number, her femininity shines […]

Bohol Bound

I remember during my elementary school days, we used to have this subject called social studies where we learned about Filipino culture, national symbols and tourist spots. Because of this subject, I’ve always associated certain cities with the things I learned in my textbooks. In Bohol’s case, two things come to mind–tarsiers and the Chocolate Hills. […]

Draw Me In

Watching the sun set in a new city is like waiting for a sweet surprise. You’ll never know what’s in store for you but it’ll take your breath away anyway. It’s amazing how each city’s sunset is uniquely different from the other. This one is from the charming city of Bohol. It has a delicate pastel-colored […]

Travel Buddies

I’m finally heading back to Manila tonight! Woohoo! Even if my travel-filled month is already coming to an end, I still can’t believe I was able to fit all my things in my luggages. I guess it all boils down to bringing only the essential clothes, accessories, and shoes. And when I say essentials, I […]

Au Naturel

When you’re in the midst of nature, it’s nice to take inspiration from it. Strip down to the basics (not necessarily to your underwear LOL) and go au naturel. Opt for the no make-up look, disheveled hair and a simple and clean tunic like this. Trust me, you’ll feel and look more beautiful than if […]
