Bag Review: Tumi Backpacks for Daily Use and for Travel

I’ve had a few backpacks in my life– but most of them have been for school (haha, I know that’s already way way way way back in the past but hey, I still remember those good ol’ backpacking days). Function was really the number one reason why I chose backpacks over totes in the past....

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....

It has been such a loooong time since I actually last went “surf- shopping” for bags and shoes and all things nice I think with all that traveling, it leaves no more time for surfshopping. When I am back in town, I try my hardest to spend time with my family (before they forget what...

From a creative perspective, one of the best bags ever designed and produced this year belongs to Loewe. The Puzzle Bag continues to awe. Its very origamic structure makes it so easy to carry the bag in so many different ways. I have already seen this bag up close a few times and have not...

Face-Off: Saint Laurent Emmanuelle vs. Mansur Gavriel Bucket

Sorry for the blogging absence as the internet connection was pretty bad the last few days during Pope Francis’ visit in the Philippines– crazy, the mobile network providers were actually asked to disrupt service for the security of the Pope. But it’s all good because his visit was a success and that it was also...
