Sephora.PH is Now Online

On the first of February, Sephora dropped a bomb and announced something that blew the minds of every beauty and make-up enthusiast in Manila. THEY NOW HAVE A PHILIPPINE WEBSITE. My Facebook feed exploded with status messages reading “Sephora, just take all my money!”, and I could totally relate! I never go home without a Sephora haul…

I got engaged. Now what?

Officially one week has passed since I got engaged, and I have so many questions running in my head. I need to write them down or else my wedding will probably end up a complete mess if I just wing it without properly planning it. I’ve never organized an event before, so I don’t really…

Get Smart

Pinafore forever. I’m still not over wearing blouses over dresses, and this particular one from Uniqlo matches this Mango dress (which I got on sale!) like a charm. I’ve been seeing this top all over Korean online stores, and now I know why everyone’s going crazy about it. It gives an instant feminine touch! The frill…

Backpack’s Back

Back to blogging again! Had to take the week off because of simultaneous work schedules and long shoot hours, but I promise I’ll get to blogging about my wedding planning soon! I have a lot of things to ask to people who have successfully planned their wedding before, and I think I should make a…

I’m Getting Married!

It’s 3:25 in the morning, and approximately 3 hours have passed since my boyfriend proposed to me on my front porch. I’m writing at this hour because I want to remember all of today’s feelings. I don’t want to go to sleep without writing these all down first! Another milestone unlocked. How can I not…

THIS VIEW. Even if you're not the museum type, the architecture is compelling enough for a visit.

Los Angeles: The Getty

The best thing about staying in an area near UCLA is The Getty being within a convenient distance. It’s considered far from where most tourists stay, but I didn’t have a problem going there from where I was. My mom was out attending a conference, so I had to brave going around LA without her. I’m usually…

Leopard Spotted

I can easily count the number of times I’ve worn leopard prints in this blog with my fingers. I barely wear them because I’ve always believed them to be too bold for my taste, but I guess beliefs can be bent and certain things can get a pass. I don’t have an extraordinary sense of style, though I’d…

Los Angeles: The Grove at Farmers Market

Best way to beat jet lag? Shopping. Well, my mom and I ended up bringing almost nothing home from our trip to The Grove, but seeing all the Halloween decorations in the middle of a bustling marketplace was a good enough experience to keep ourselves alive and awake. We didn’t stay too long in the area…

Mango: Subtle Buckle

Back in the day, I stumbled upon an article about clothing investments and discerning between the kind of clothes that can still be used 10 years down the line, and the kind that can only be used once or twice. Ever since then, this sort of thinking has influenced my every move when it comes to shopping. While my…

Los Angeles: LACMA

First time at LACMA, or the Los Angeles County Museum of Art! LACMA curator, are you me? Everything in the museum fit the kind of aesthetic and experience that I love. They have areas purely dedicated to De Stijl / neoplasticism (They have a Mondrian!), and Japanese art (OMG, Hokusai and Hiroshige prints!). They have pretty restaurants and hipster cafes…
