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 […]

“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” ~ Henry David Thoreau ~ There are days when even my imagination needs a bit of a work out. Creativity.

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.

Though I admit I can be such a girl sometimes — yes, I’ve even been called out on acting like a big baby — but, growing up, I’ve always been such a tomboy and I mean I look veeeeery awkward in a dress. But puberty and a few boyfriends (HA, like they were many!) came […]

Dry spell. A long stretch of monotonous events that had your style genius exiled to dullsville. Indolence shadowing you, no matter how hard you try to shake it off.
