Makeup Tutorial: Bright and Beautiful Barely There Makeup

When I met Korean celebrity make up artist, Kim Kang Pil (who is also Banila Co.’s head makeup artist), one of the important tips I remember him telling me was that one does not need to apply so much makeup to achieve flawless skin.

Oh, bloggers and our affinity with walls. I actually matched my outfit to this wall. LOL! I was passing through one day and thought it would make such a cool backdrop for one of my OOTDs. So here I am, playing matchy matchy with this beautiful wall art. You see, this is what I mean […]

To celebrate, the beloved brand is launching a special 60th anniversary capsule collection which includes polos, t-shirts, woven tops and outerwear that were over-dyed and washed to emulate a vintage feel.

Baby Be Mine

I’ve got a new baby to add to my growing collection. I’ve been eyeing this Saint Laurent camera bag for months now–but because I’m still recovering from my last shopping spree, I thought I shouldn’t indulge myself for a while.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
