A few weeks back I received I package I was particularly excited to get.
What was inside the box? Bottles and bottles of Girl Stuff nail polish! If you guys have not already noticed, I LOVE nail polish! So, when I heard that Girl Stuff was sending over a few bottles, I was delighted.
One downside of nail polish that I've yet to find a solution to would be how the polish usually damages the nails. I have very brittle nails and it only takes a coat of polish for my nails to start chipping and peeling. ...
Today on Rappler's #TalkThursday episode, Jose Ramon Albert, Secretary General of the National Statistical Coordination Board spoke on poverty and statistics in the country. He mentioned that income inequality exists in the Philippines, that there's a divide between the rich and the poor.
THIS VIDEO explains that thought perfectly.
And we wonder why things are this crazy.
A summer outfit in the middle of the city.
So today at work an idea was born: we were to make a group fashion blog. This idea came about when the boss mandated that everyone should blog. All the talk on blogs led to an eventual show and tell of all the sites we liked and that was when the inevitable jealousy over things we do not have set in. Consensus is to make a group blog-- yes the office team I am in is powered by make-up, outfits, and estrogen. (Hahaha, I love this office).
Anyway, that idea ca...
Layers and colours and playing with the light.
An experiment with the light and glare plus a few editing applications yielded these trippy photos.
Because I have nothing much to say.
A few weeks ago, we found ourselves parked at Choi Palace, Eastwood for a quick dimsum dinner.Okay, admittedly this restaurant visit happened a while back but I am posting this now because I just woke up and it's past lunch-- I want me some dimsum!Anyway, Choi Palace is a fine dining Chinese restaurant in Eastwood, yes the type with those round tables, cloth napkins, and aquariums for fresh seafood. There are, however, a few informal booths in the place and this was where we chose to sit when we visited,...
I know I've said it at least once here on the blog that I wouldn't be caught in peplum but I just couldn't resist this pretty bow.
This look may very well be part of the "I am a lady" series. Honestly, I didn't think I could pull off a look with this 'responsible/classy' feel without feeling uncomfortable but fashion surprises me yet again. I was skipping and hopping around the mall as free and comfy as can be.

Maybeline The Jewels lipstick in Fuchsia Crystal (left) and Refined Wine (right).
Basically the story is this: Camille and I were at the mall, walking around, when something flashy caught our eye-- one other than a big sale sign. So, who can resist lipstick at 50% off? Not me, that's for sure. Anyway, we ended up taking these home, even after promising to steer clear from make-up after that last big Target haul we had shipped (which landed us several tubes of lipstick, some of which remain unopened). W...
Little Quiapo's Mais con yelo, perfect for these really hot summer days.
A few days back, the family dined at Little Quiapo owing to the fact that my Aunt is visiting from the States.. and when there's a balikbayan relative, we Filipinos have to have our Halo halo! The heat these days help with the craving, too.
Little Quiapo is hidden away in BF, a village here in the South known for local watering holes and good eats. From what we heard from the servers, the restaurant used to serve 'pulutan' like t...
Here's to being responsible looking the part!
Okay, this is not really what I'd call "proper corporate look" but I just love how easy and put together this look is-- I mean it's basically a tee and a skater skirt! I now truly believe that a blazer over anything instantly makes you look responsible because well, look:
Hardiharhar! I was told that I was "very Chanel" that day (with the blazer buttoned all the way up) but really, all I was trying to channel (pun intended) was a more mature and proper lo...
