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...
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...
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...

June 17: From the Heart & a Birthday Reveal! :)

I honestly don’t know where to begin or how to structure this post without you going “whaaaat?” so please just bear with me as I throw out my thoughts, unfiltered, unstructured. Think of this as me (a.k.a. the motormouth lol) talking to you face- to- face.  I am sitting here on my chair, staring at...
How To Organize and Store Your Accessories

How To Organize and Store Your Accessories

Some years ago, I used to hoard these thin metal “trees” to hang my accessories and knick- knacks. But like every other girl who loves accessories, I have this bad habit of hoarding at times especially if I get incredible bargains. And then I end up with so much more than I can actually use....
The Big Garage Sale!!!

The Big Garage Sale!!!

In the last week, I’ve been busy cleaning up the home and my closet because well, it’s time. Overcrowding is not a good look haha. And clutter can really overwhelm and be mentally burdensome. Luckily my friend Daphne invited me to join her annual Garage Sale event with Eliza Romualdez Valtos. So the last few...
