Putting My Charm On

New year, new set of charms. This time, instead of a necklace, I got a bracelet with a locket full of charms. Remember the time when charm bracelets were all the rage? Practically every girl in my school had one. It must’v been pretty annoying for the boys back then. Every time a girl walked […]

Bring out your maxi dresses and maxi skirts girls, boho chic is back with a vengeance this 2015. I still remember it like yesterday when this trend hit it big. I’m not talking about the late 60s to early 70s obviously. I wasn’t even born yet at that time. I’m referring to the late 2000s […]

Tarlac City

Ashamed as I am to admit this, I haven’t really explored much of my own country. Aside from the usual beaches and resorts, I’ve failed to truly capture the beauty of the Philippines. There are no excuses for this–which is why before 2014 ended, I promised myself that I’d start traveling around the Philippines more. […]

Cali Girl

Just when I thought I can pretend to be a Cali girl for a day, the sun decides to play hide and seek and sends gloomy skies and winds my way. But the ever so stubborn me stood my ground, held my head up high, and stuck with my sexy summer dress. I even brought […]
