Tomboy Chic

You don’t need a lot to pull off the tomboy chic style. It’s basically just getting the right mix of beautifully lousy clothes that would make people think you’re too cool to care about what you’re wearing. But in reality, you do care. If you’ve got a closet full of basics, then maybe you should […]

Part Ways

Center slits are tricky things. They’re striking as ever but make one wrong move and you’re sure to give the world a show. (And no, it’s not the kind of show you’d be proud of.) So what’s a girl in a skirt with a center slit supposed to do? You can’t walk around a paranoid […]

Grace

As much as I love soft and silky clothes like these, I can’t help but think they’re only for women who are as poised and graceful as the greats, like Princess D, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, to name a few. Because no matter how perfectly pressed they are when I step out the door, they always […]

My Rewards Outfit + Blog Giveaway (CLOSED)

Before I started working, I used to spend so much on shopping. I didn’t understand the value of money so I just kept buying clothes, shoes, bags and basically everything else I wanted. I’d shop like there’s no tomorrow, and spend as if money just grew on trees. Thankfully, my sister never got tired of […]

A Little Bit Of Silver

Intramuros is definitely Manila’s little gem. I remember getting blown away by this historic district when I first visited it on a field trip back in high school. More than a decade later, I’m still head over heels in love with it. Whenever I have brides getting married at Intramuros’ San Agustin Church (Manila’s oldest […]

Travel Diary: Teufelsberg (Former Spy Station)

On our last full day in Berlin, Goethe Institut arranged a tour for us around an old spy station at Teufelsberg. I must say, it’s not your usual tourist destination. There were no information centers or big ticketing offices around it. In fact, it’s like a hidden treasure that’s only visible to people who seek it. […]

Travel Diary: Gendarmenmarkt And Checkpoint Charlie

There’s no square in Berlin that’s grander than the Gendarmenmarkt. With the architectural trio that is the Konzerthaus (Concert House), Französischer Dom (French Cathedral) and Deutscher Dom (German Cathedral) all surrounding this square, plus the statue of Germany’s renowned poet, Friedrich Schiller at the square’s center, it’s a tough ensemble to beat. You can understand […]

Travel Diary: Berlin Wall and East Side Gallery

It’s hard not to get interested in politics and history when you’re in Berlin, especially with a history as recent as theirs. Prior to coming to this city, I’ve already heard about the Berlin Wall and how it divided East and West Berlin during the Cold War but that’s pretty much everything I knew about it. Little […]

Shine

Add a pair of hoop earrings and an afro that’s larger than life and I’m ready to hit the disco! Just look at this gold pleated number. It’s made for the nightlife! It’s made for the dance floor! But since I’m in no mood to party the night away (what with the sun shining so […]
