Things to do and places to go; take your time, make haste. Life, in seconds, won’t wait. Tog du jour: A strange mix of the empirical and the theoretical. Marry sheer with day; break Black with Blue, I say. Mullets. What are MULLETS, you ask, I bet. Au courant with the style scene, a perfect […]

Maps, Prints, & Bags | Brown, Navy, Circle Sunnies, Vintage

“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 […]

Christmas poppers, jokes, colourful paper crowns, and turkey over Christmas lunch. If I were to sum up Christmas day, it was a day full of fun. I really love spending Christmas with kids around (something that I can expect to happen whenever I celebrate Christmas in Australia

You know how it’s like when you realise that you need to do something to go against a thought or definition? There’s the theory; the signs; the reality. No matter what you do, you find yourself yielding to comforts and conventions. Stress. And then, there’s this curious bit wherein you’d like to push yourself and […]

One of the things that I was looking forward to as I had prepped for my trip back to Manila a few weeks ago, was the planned stop in Singapore; spent a few days rediscovering the country and QT with relations. With a sad heart, I had bid Adelaide adieu. The amount of time I’ve […]

Loving how fashionistas have embraced the maxi trend with outfits that borders boho and prep. I decided to jump in and dish out one look even when the weather’s too cold for skirts. With a little ingenuity, I was able to air out the MinkPink Maxi Skirt I ordered online (I reckon I mentioned it […]

When you consider the varying points where hemlines of skirts fall, you might think that options are a bit limited. I’ve observed how most women prefer if not minis (yes, even micro minis), it’d be maxi skirts or dresses esp since it’s quite the rage right now. However, though I do think both minis and […]

It’s amazing how fast time flew. It’s true then that that happens when you’re clearly having fun.

It’s been close to 5 years from the last time I was in Melbourne. I’ve seen quite a bit that time but I’m quite certain I’d be seeing tonnes of changes. When the opportunity came up to take this trip (huge thanks to my sis and kuya J), I have to admit I had agreed […]
