What prompts you to choose a particular item whenever you’re out shopping? Is your answer (or the effort to arrive at one) easily quantifiable? May your source of inspiration be trend reports or fashion blogs, “I-liked-how-she-wore-it” or “my-mother-buys-my-clothes” views, or knowing exactly what you want, things can easily be rolled into one thought: “Why question […]

MAC Opulash Optimum Black Mascara, MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

In the years leading up to this day, I’ve been through countless experimental makeup pursuits which solidify my resolve that with a certain amount of effort coupled with a significant showing of interest, someone who lacks skill will eventually learn enough of what makeup type she feels is comfortable for herself and suitable to her […]

As you may have noticed (esp those who regularly keeps me company here), I haven’t been blogging about beauty much. Since I’ve pretty much given up (at least temporarily) reviewing each and everything that arrives on my doorstep, I only get to write about the stuff that I buy and use. Much of what you’ve […]

Jump shots (not referring to Basketball, mmkay?), anyone? I like the challenge thrown by this act to every photographer. Of course, aim is to capture the subject mid-air but it doesn’t end there. The photographer ought to have an eye for pleasing expressions, grace in movements plus important elements like light and shadow, throw in […]

Sadly, one of the downsides of growing my hair long, it needs a huge dose of TLC right now. Largely due to my whims, I’ve subjected it to numerous treatments but failed to account the level of maintenance it will need after. With all the holiday preps and a full schedule, I had to sacrifice […]

Surprise, surprise. Teh bag lady had gifted me a bag for my birthday. It’s her thing and I’m lucky since I do get to end up with gorgeous-looking bags. So who’s really complaining? Add the fact that I was around to prod her in the direction of what sort of bag I’d like to have […]

Colour Crushing on Indigo Dye and Pink Coco

Amplified Creme Lipstick in Cosmo, MAC Cosmetics | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

Loving the new colours that I’ve added to my beauty and style colour palette. There’s a touch of the old as I rekindle an old flame for the bluish hue then there’s the perpetual acceptance of pink and all the light, ever-so-dainty (both delicate and persnickety) femininity it indubitably represents. Pink Coco is the current […]

There has been a major change of pace in my life and the past week had been spent accommodating new things and people, adjusting to a new environment and re-incorporating myself into a world that I’ve left behind a good couple of years ago. Back in the grind, odd emotions, all good but like with […]

Greyone Social and the Kicks Trend

Greyone Social | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

This particular style takes me back to the glory days of punk fashion in the 80s and the staple street fashion of the early 90s. It’s the hippest and coolest thing for young people to wear then. Think rolled up shirt sleeves, bold colours (neon even) straight cuts and boom boxes. Checked deck on the […]
