Let me first tell you about my new hair. It’s a month in now, hence, normal to most haircuts, they would look twice better as when you first step out of the salon. Oh yea, I haven’t been in town for the last few months — with just the occasional popping in to take care […]

Last minute decision to head off to Filinvest Tent in Alabang, I sent a quick message to my friend to meet me there. With the weather suffering indecision, unsure if the bit in the program I was looking forward to will still push through. It did; as I had shifted my car to park a […]

Holiday Pick: Collection 2000 Volume Sensation Lipstick Satin Bow x Lock N Hold Lipgloss Body Pop

Collection Lipstick Satin Bow, Body Pop Lipgloss

Heaux, heaux, heaux. Christmas too soon, parties left and right. I’m finally going to reveal my drug of choice, that is, drugstore makeup.

The uptight and overly self-conscious crowd, weird and unnecessary moments during the looong reception programs, and the ceremony? (ugh) It’s like a slow moving motorcade, a procession in the name of boredom. These are some of the reasons why I have become a non-avid fan of attending weddings. Probably because when I was young, my […]

What fashion industry is doing still now is, “OK, if you’re in fashion, we don’t talk about discrimination — but if you’re in Pakistan, we’ll … make it as part of our charity… From a ranking of 105th in gender equality, I am extremely shocked to hear about this going on in Japan. Gender equality […]

Meet Hannah

Listening to a voice that’s real and raw, you’d be filled with wonder and awe. It takes you on a path away from pretensions and shams; away from visuals that seemingly mocks real life, real people. Having your thoughts of style and society shaped by one so easygoing, unconcerned by what most may consider norm, […]

Seemingly surfacing in an air chamber of a sempiternal synthetic cave, I found myself warming the slick white couch at Club Haze on a rainy Saturday night — still partial to darkness and positively coaxed by the promise of hip-hop. It was one of them Adidas Originals parties, after all. #UniteAllOriginals The idea of refusing […]
