Make-up Magic with MAC Cosmetics

Make-up Magic with MAC Cosmetics

I’ve always been clueless about makeup. I was never one of those girls who played with mom’s makeup during those childhood days. So when I began to develop acne and weird oily- dry skin growing up, intervention was needed. It was not just about going to the dermatologist, it was also about learning more of...
SONA 2015: A Fashion Event in the Philippines?

SONA 2015: A Fashion Event in the Philippines?

Yes, I decided to end today’s blog title with a question mark. Because the State of the Nation Address of the President of the Philippines should never be considered a fashion event. But it has become just that in the last few years because well, many in attendance of this event have been decked out...
Celebrity Fashion: Jennifer Lopez Revealing at 46

Celebrity Fashion: Jennifer Lopez Revealing at 46

I’m a fan of J.Lo, and to see that she looks this fantastic at 46 only continues to leave me in awe of her. Thing is of late, I’m just finding it increasingly difficult to digest celebrity fashion. Award ceremonies after award ceremonies, I couldn’t help but notice how the dresses have become more and...
Compromising Quality for Profitability?

Compromising Quality for Profitability?

It’s not really too difficult to pack for the beach. Apart from your usual beach essentials which would consist of a bottle of sunblock (or tanning lotion), insect repellant (which I swear by now), a first aid kit, a few swimsuits, tank tops, shorts, kaftans, a pair of flipflops, and maybe a pair or two...
Wedding Belles: The Hiltons + Paris' Big Bag Theory

Wedding Belles: The Hiltons + Paris’ Big Bag Theory

Up until today, I am still not done poring over the wedding photos of Nicky Hilton and James Rothschild. I think Nicky made a very wise choice to look every inch a traditional bride in heavy lace. She was regal and immaculate in Valentino. She joins a list of beautiful women who chose to don...

Travelog: Francis Ford Coppola Winery

Haha, I’ve decided to take another “leave” on the blog for a week or so and stick to instagram while on vacation While I kept things fairly nice and easy, doing very little shopping because honestly there were ZERO exciting bags to buy or to covet in the last month or so, I was also...
Celebrity Bag: Jennifer Lawrence and her Roger Vivier in New York

Celebrity Bag: Jennifer Lawrence and her Roger Vivier in New York

Jennifer Lawrence is one very hot young actress. She is perhaps one of the very few actresses that just sizzles onscreen and off even without trying. In the stifling heat of New York City yesterday, she was a welcome vision in white and carried a cute Roger Vivier Prismick to complete her look. The Prismick...
Sandra Bullock's Fashionable Minions

Sandra Bullock’s Fashionable Minions

I couldn’t help but gush as soon as I saw the minion- inspired pumps of Sandra Bullock a.k.a. Scarlett Overkill! Do you still remember when Angelina Jolie a.k.a. Maleficent wore those movie- inspired pumps as well? Her Louboutin shoes were cool *and quite badass* back then but Sandra’s Minion pumps have to take the cake...
Back in San Francisco!

Back in San Francisco!

As has always been the case, being back in San Francisco means slower internet at home because we never subscribed to cable internet and instead just rely on mobile hotspotting. Booo However this also means one thing: actually “living” life offline hahaha. A pretty welcome change actually, because I seem to have the phone stuck...
Enhanced Beauty: Celebrity & Royal Noses

Enhanced Beauty: Celebrity & Royal Noses

Writing about surgically enhanced noses of celebs: is this just sick pleasure now or what (what being wanting to belong to the “club” hahaha– not exactly a good thing but yeah, wanting to ahem, “belong”) LOL!  During the time I was recuperating from the nose surgery and was confined to the house, I actually began...
