Fresh Start

I can’t believe 2014 is about to end. Just 11 more days to go and a whole new year is going to start again. How on earth did this happen? It seems as if this year went by just like that. Swoooosh and it’s over. I guess that’s how it feels when you’ve been a […]


So Much Beauty

SM Makati’s SM Store Beauty Section just got a makeover and I was there to welcome it with open arms! Who wouldn’t when you’ve got this much beauty going on? It’s every girls paradise, with all our favorite makeup, skincare and hair brands under one roof. Not only that, free skin consultation, makeovers, nail art […]


Travel Diary: Monkey Forest, Ubud Bali

Bali, Indonesia–this destination has been on my travel bucket list for quite some time now but it was only until last month that I got to visit it with my blogger besties. Although we booked our tickets as early as April, we were all so busy no one bothered to make an itinerary. As you can […]


Travel Diary: Experiencing Korea’s Old And New

After our trip to Namhansanseong Fortress, our guide took us for a short walk around the neighborhood. She said we had a special lunch set up just a few miles away. It was a beautiful neighborhood full of trees and traditional-looking houses so I didn’t really mind the walk. It felt like I was in a K-drama […]


Travel Diary: Gyeonggi-Do, Korea

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, Gyeonggi-do is a fascinating place. It’s where beauty, fun and old town charm are all rolled into one. You can even say it’s where the past, present and future come together (a statement that, in my opinion, is applicable to most of South Korea). I already showed you “the past” through […]


Smart Summer

Boracay can be the best of both worlds. It can provide relaxation and serenity. And at the same time, be the hottest place to party during summer. So which is it now? After my quiet time at Shangri-la Boracay last March (as you’ve seen in my previous posts here, here and here), I went back to my […]


Travel Diary: Asakusa + Tokyo Runway

If Europe has its cathedrals, Asia has its temples. This is why a trip to Tokyo wouldn’t be complete without visiting at least one of its famous shrines. During my trip to Tokyo last year, I visited Meiji Shrine. This year, we decided to go to Sensō-ji, a popular Buddhist temple located at Asakusa. Comparing […]


Travel Diary: Sushi, Kimonos and Nihonbashi

Here we go! 40+ photos of my first snaps in Tokyo. I tried my best to lessen them but I just couldn’t resist not posting them here. I’m such a photo-hoarder, I know. In my defense, I merely want you to experience Tokyo the way I did. And there’s no better way than to show […]


Cool Japan

As many of you may already know, I just recently visited Tokyo upon the invitation of Google Japan and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). I, along with Laureen and Tricia, were the Philippine representatives or ambassadors of METI’s special project called Cool Japan. This project is a government-funded initiative that aims to […]


Decked Out In Giordano Concepts

There’s a new Giordano Concepts store in town and it’s at the recently launched wing of Megamall–the Mega Fashion Hall. Last week,  I was fortunate enough to attend the well-loved apparel brand’s grand opening as one of its style icons, along with my fellow bloggers, celebrities and models. Champagne, delectable treats, amazing styling, easy shopping […]
