SALE Season + The Bag Hag Diaries Revamp Soon!

It took a bit of time, but part of the reason why I haven’t been blogging much as well is because I am pretty much waiting for the new look of the blog to be up. I haven’t been able to keep you all up to speed on what’s going on because well, I realize...

Happy 2017, my dear friends! I got back from the U.S. days ago and had immediately thrown myself into the heart of Manila’s (music) action, thanks to Glenn and Winston Llamas of Wilbros Live who had brought in the world’s biggest DJ, David Guetta. I thought I was going to nod off because of the...

Special thanks to my family, we are all spending the holidays together again in California 🙂 Last year, we took a trip up north to Lake Tahoe to enjoy a white Christmas. This year, we drove down South to Los Angeles for the holidays after spending a few nights in San Francisco, our home base....
Christmas Bag Wishlist: Prada Cahier Bag

Christmas Bag Wishlist: Prada Cahier Bag

The Prada Cahier bag has been on the wishlist of many bag lovers, and unfortunately (and expectedly) the brand did not produce enough of this style to meet demand! The Cahier (not to be mistaken as “Cashier” because haha I made this mistake as well before) looks like an old book,  secured by a “belt.”...

What to Do in London for 3 Days

What to Do in London for 3 Days

I have been traveling a lot this year and truth it be told, I thought of making the jump from fashion to travel. It would’ve made perfect sense, but then again I do travel for work in fashion so I can’t just turn my back entirely on fashion. Also because that would mean giving up...
Parisian Craftsmanship: Valerie Salacroux Bags

Parisian Craftsmanship: Valerie Salacroux Bags

Last fashion season, I decided on exploring a bit of Paris in the hopes I’d find new bag designers. I got really lucky. Tucked away on one of the streets of the 3rd arrondissement is the atelier and boutique of Valerie Salacroux. Valerie’s bags are all personally handcrafted by her, using excellent quality taurillon clemence...

That Wild and Crazy Louis Vuitton Bags Sale in Tokyo!

Last Friday, I was going through my feed on Facebook and saw an album of photos from my FB friend that made my jaw drop. I met Nivat a few times from when he was still living in Manila as an executive of an international airline company. But he has since left town, and is...

Travelog: Milano Window Shopping After Hours

Ciao from Milano! Got into the gloomy city around 4p after a long 18 hour travel (layover included). I always feel light- hearted and happy when I’m back here. Been fortunate to live just a few blocks from the Duomo, where all the action happens 🙂 My first dinner in Milan was at Il Salumaio...
Travelog: 24 Hours in Taipei, The Bag Hag Way!

Travelog: 24 Hours in Taipei, The Bag Hag Way!

I have been to Taipei twice in my adult life before this current one. I was confined to going around in only a few places that time, also perhaps because I was not really free in the afternoons to explore much. This time though, I came with my friends Erika and Lesley, and we were...

Travelog: A Bag Hag’s Guide on What to Buy in Tokyo

If you follow me on instagram [@thebaghag] and on snapchat [the_baghag], you might already know that I’m currently in Tokyo on holiday. It was my eldest kid’s birthday and we decided to celebrate it quietly in Japan, a favorite destination since the Dear Kid (DK) loves electronics and wishes to be a software engineer one...
The Return of the Monogram Bag

The Return of the Monogram Bag

Do you still remember which brand became famous because of the monogram? Yup, CHANEL with its unmistakable double C twist lock on the center of the bag. And of course, who can forget Hermes– the ubiquitous Constance which is really a prize if you manage to buy it today at the Hermes boutique! Well, of...
