Lace All Over

Who needs fancy backdrops if you’re wearing a dress as beautiful as this? With lace sewn all over my tulle dress, I’ve got all the drama I need. I’m actually pleasantly surprised at how much lace is on this dress, not to mention good quality lace. As a consumer, it feels like I hit the jackpot. I mean, ...

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 ...

Shibuya Lights

Hello there, scramble crossing, we meet again. If New York has its iconic Times Square, Tokyo has Shibuya’s scramble crossing. No Tokyo photo diary would ever be complete without it. So even though this isn’t my first time, I still had to take a photo of it. But this time, I took it up a ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Just Curves, No Edges

Leave it up to Style Staple to create the sexiest ensembles. Here’s another one from their new collection–a simple cropped top and skirt that are sold as a set. As usual, they fit me like a glove. This is why I love wearing Style Staple. The designer, Arvie, knows my body so well. And she ...

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 ...
