Festival Fever

There’s nothing like a big music festival to kick off my summer festivities! Last April 5, Closeup brought some of the biggest local and international DJs, namely Marc Naval, Martin Pulgar, Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Helena, Alesso and Deniz Koyu together for Closeup Forever Summer. Being one of Closeup’s brand ambassadors, I couldn’t help but feel proud ...

Roponggi

Good food is always one of my top priorities whenever I travel, so on my last day in Tokyo, I made sure to add another restaurant in my growing list of Japan “musts”. The restaurant is called Mercer Brunch, located at Roponggi. It’s a good thing that Tricia and I are both foodies so even if Roponggi ...

Stop And Shop

There’s always time for shopping, right? After taking in the sights of Tokyo, I couldn’t miss dropping by Harajuku street for a quick fashion fix. It was less chilly that day so I was able to wear lighter clothes. I whipped out my florals and set aside my plaids to match the lovely spring weather. You ...

Travel Diary: Sakura

Although this wasn’t my first time in Tokyo, I’ve never visited the city at the right time to actually catch its famous sakura or cherry blossoms. This time around, I was determined to see one. (Just one, Lord. Even if it’s just one.) And just one it is! I’m so thankful to our #CoolJapan #100Tokyo ...

Beat Of The Street

My skin got a little darker coming from the beach so I’m making the most out of it! I know, I know, it’s not a HUGE difference. But when you’re like me who rarely get a tan, you’d be happy with even the slightest sign of change in your skin color. You’d go, “Oh is ...

Ain’t Nobody Taking My Jeans

There was a time in my life when denim jeans dominated my wardrobe choices. They gave me security–security from judgy eyes staring at my legs; security from peeping toms who have nothing better to do; and finally, security of knowing that whatever I pair with them, it’ll work. Although my wardrobe has become much more ...

By The Street

I’ve officially run out of blog titles and things to say. Or maybe it’s just one of those days when my brain decides to shut down on me. Thanks a lot, brain. Now that you’ve been warned of my brain’s leave of absence, prepare for random gibberish to accompany these beautiful outfit shots that I ...

My Leather Jacket Is Cooler Than Yours

This is by far the yummiest leather jacket I own. Just look at this candy-colored cutie! It’s from this super famous Korean brand called STYLENANDA. I got to know the brand because I follow one of their models on Instagram. She always wears the coolest things, this leather jacket included. Hers was in baby pink. ...
