My Beauty Makeover in Seoul

Here it is! As requested, I’m finally blogging about my trip to Seoul with Makeup Plus App. Yes, that trip I was talking about here. So I arrived in Seoul around 5am which only means one thing, this girl didn’t get much sleep. Good thing the first thing on our agenda that day was (drumroll […]

A Home Between Phobijka And Punakha

Traveling across Bhutan isn’t for the weak. Aside from having to adjust to a higher altitude, a lot of time is spent on the road–roads that are not as well-developed as we’re accustomed to. It can sometimes feel like it’s a never-ending merry-go-around, having to drive around in circles making our way up and down […]

Palace Of Bliss

On our fourth day in Bhutan, we made our way to Punakha Valley which was previously the capital of Bhutan until 1955. Although it is considered to be one of the warmest valleys in the country (due to its lower elevation of 1200m above sea level), it was still super cold. I don’t know how […]

Dochula Pass, Bhutan

They say the best time to go to Bhutan is around autumn and spring but I think there’s something special about the kingdom during winter as well. It was early February when my sister and I went to Bhutan so gone were the lush flora and fauna by that time. Instead, snow-covered leaves and mountains […]

Take A Closer Look

Just when you thought this outfit is for plain jane, take a closer look and you’ll find many surprises. There’s a major strap situation from the back, a couple of side slits, a dainty anklet thrown into the mix, and a sleek new local discovery that is the Ibarra watch. Put them all together and […]

Travel Diary: Tegalalang Rice Terraces

After an eventful morning at Ubud’s monkey forest, we headed to the Tegalalang Rice Terraces located north of Ubud. It was a welcome change of scenery–definitely less stressful and whole lot more peaceful. (Well, at this point, any place without monkeys seemed zen to us.) I understand why so many people were just sitting in the restaurants […]

Country Girl

You can easily tell from my hair color that these shots were taken a while back. I was off to give a talk for Chalk Magazine’s Campus Tour at Far Eastern University that day. It was especially hot then so pants and anything else made with more than 1 and a half yards of fabric […]

Outdoors

Don’t I look like a nature-loving outdoorsy gal in my plaid shirt and wedge boots? If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already saw this pair of boots. I had a crisis then and was torn between getting this color or the blue ones. So what’s a 21st century girl supposed to do? Post […]

Dusk

Here’s another set of photos that are different from my usual shots. The sun was already setting so I was running out of light again. (What’s new?) The photos  came out surprisingly dramatic. I find it to be a nice contrast to my floral outfit. Instead of the usual bright backdrop, it’s the cityscape and […]

Opulence

Another old outfit I forgot to post. When you pair 2 scarf prints together, it’s impossible not to look luxurious/opulent. In Filipino, ang lakas maka-sosyal! Although, you may risk looking a bit matronly too especially when the print is on a midi skirt like this. But since I paired mine with a corset top, it […]
