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 […]

Black And White Elegance

For those of you who are looking for ways to style their balloon skirts a bit more conservatively than how I styled my pleated pink skirt here, I’ve come up with another outfit featuring a more forgiving top. I hear you. Our tummies aren’t always in the best shape for super short cropped tops and […]

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 […]

Diamond In The Rough

I’ve used this blog title before but because I seem to have left my brain in the Philippines, I can’t think of anything else. I’ve been staring at my laptop for a good 30 minutes and nothing is coming to me. All I see is that diamond-shaped peek-a-boo at the middle of my top. It’s not […]

Center Part

When I first saw this dress, I was a little skeptical. That slit right smack in the middle looked dangerous! But because I trust that Style Staple knows my body well, I still tried it on and wore it out. To my surprise, no Lindsay Lohan situation ensued. Amazing. It must be in the way […]

Shooting Star

If I wish upon the shooting stars on my romper, will my wish come true still? Probably not. I’m not even sure if they’re shooting stars. You know how abstract prints are, you can never be certain with them. Heck, this print can be anything from a spider web to paint splats! But come on, […]
