Travel Diary: Nikolaiviertel (Nikolai Quarter)

Nikolaiviertel or Nikolai Quarter is often referred to as the oldest residential area of Berlin. Technically, it really was. Merchants and artisans settled here in the Middle Ages because it’s located at the crossing of land and water trading routes on both sides of the river Spree. Unfortunately though, most of its medieval lanes and […]

Face-Off

University of Santo Tomas, the Philippine’s oldest university, is beautiful. I may be a proud Atenean but there’s no denying this fact. It’s got a different charm, the kind of charm only a historical institution like UST can ever possess. It’s actually already my third time to visit this campus. Although the first one doesn’t […]

Personalized Just For Me

Don’t you just wish someone can do your shopping for you? I know, I know. Shopping isn’t really a chore, so it’s nowhere near taxing. But there must be days when you feel lazy to shop, right? When you feel like you just don’t have the time, patience nor energy to browse through so much […]

Roland Mouret For Banana Republic

Last Thursday was a jampacked day. I hosted the Freshgear Fashion Faceoff under the scorching hot sun at UST from morning until late afternoon, then went straight to Greenbelt 5 afterwards to host the launch of the Roland Mouret For Banana Republic collection. You can just imagine how I must’ve looked by the time I reached […]

Windstruck

It’s only been a few days since I got back home from Germany and already, I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of work I have to do before I fly out again next week. I’m not complaining though. I’m sure a lot of you are busy as can be too. But sometimes, […]

Start Fresh

I guess I can’t sit with Regina George then. I wore pink too early in the week. Movies like “Mean Girls” bring me back to the good old days, when I was still in school, buried in my books. Even so, I’ve always paid attention to the way I dress. Skinny jeans, in particular, were my […]

Sky High

A couple of years ago, you would’ve never seen me brush my hair up like this–at least, not voluntarily. My bangs were my safety net. I couldn’t go out without them! It’s as if I’m able to hide part of my insecurities under my bangs. LOL! I’m sure most of you can relate. Us girls, we tend […]
