Believe it or not, I had planned on sharing this story back in November 2013. But a whirlwind came into my world and asked a lot from my time and energy that I only had time to do this today. Quite happy that I found the photos I had worked on then, saved a lot […]

Plate’s been full since beginning of last week and there are still a few more important errands to run for the next couple of weeks. It’s funny how these things seemingly conspire to happen all at the same time, sometimes. Leaving you no spare time and quite exhausted on some days. So, before the backlog […]

20130624-150447.jpg

Style Manila goes to work as Homegrown does a fun shoot for one of their lifestyle articles about style in the biz world. The challenge was to come up with outfits that would take someone from meetings during the day to business gatherings with cocktails at night. Being in the real estate biz for five […]

A provocative, avant-garde twist to a typically mannish military-inspired style with its body contouring form, roughed up with ruching details and silver hardware, add to that the alluring dip of the neckline that can go deeper, zipped down. The modest hem length balances out the sexy, just a couple or so inches above the knee; […]

Make all your decisions without fear or favour. Don’t listen to the voice of the masses or to the ingrained belief that you can’t or you shouldn’t. Wouldn’t it be better to ask, “Why not?” Trick is to know how, and how to know. Train your brain to see what works best and never be […]

All in the name of research. Save for the strain the activity would put on my wallet, it’s one of the things I appreciate about what I do. Who can say no to online shopping? And though I can easily pop in at any Sportsgirl store, I’ve been curious on how they go about their […]

Oz Online Shopping: Cotton On

What started out as a simple FB-messaging-slash-online-window-shopping — a pair of expensive Miu Miu sunglasses, browsing through shopping websites, and general chitchat about needing more boys boots in our lives — turned into an online bargain shopping at wee hours of the morning (my time) to kick start my Australia Day Weekend. Online shopping, the […]

“We shall sail like Columbus..” A few days after I saw the movie Life of Pi, I saw a particular item that quickly reminded me of this line from the movie. Sometimes I wake up and have “today I feel like vintage” days aside from my usual…Old soul tendencies? Brown x Navy has always been […]

Colour Crushing on Rose Gold

Veering away from my apparent partiality to neutrals, I try to create a compulsive spin on my colour preferences.
