Hermes Birkin + Kelly Leather Cutout Totes

Hermes Birkin + Kelly Leather Cutout Totes

Last season when I went to the beautiful Rue de Sevres store of Hermes, I noticed these birkin and kelly leather cutout totes on display. At Hermes, they really don’t leave much leather to waste– they decided to make bags even out of the leather cutouts that were leftover materials to make the birkin and...
Bag Review: Elie Saab Pairs Backpack with Couture Gown

Bag Review: Elie Saab Pairs Backpack with Couture Gown

I would cringe when I see a beautifully dressed woman in a gown carrying a chunky bag. I would have normally recommend a box clutch, a flat pochette, or a minaudiere for formal occasions. Never really thought that sizable leather bags would work with couture. Until Elie Saab’s current Haute Couture collection presentation which showcased...
Some of My Favorite Places in Paris

Some of My Favorite Places in Paris

When I’m in Paris, I love getting lost. Despite all those warnings about the city no longer being a safe place to get “lost,” I don’t heed those warnings and still go forward with exploring every possible nook and cranny that looks interesting. Here are some spots that you might already know of or have...
Travelog: Flying Qatar Airways to Paris

Travelog: Flying Qatar Airways to Paris

I’ve always been a diehard loyal passenger of Emirates Airline, having had a consistently lousy experience travelling with Etihad to Europe (search my blog for the experience). This trip to Paris though, I am flying Qatar. The flight from Manila left at 5.50pm in the NAIA 1 Terminal. I haven’t set foot in this terminal...
Bag Review: The Moynat Rejane

Bag Review: The Moynat Rejane

Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to spend some leisure time in Hong Kong. Confession: I have not gone bag shopping (like really bag shopping– spending almost an hour inside a shop) for so long. But I was able to do so during this trip. I spent a good hour inside the tiny boutique...
Paris: More Fun Spots in the 2nd Arrondissement

Paris: More Fun Spots in the 2nd Arrondissement

As promised, I’m sharing some more of my favorite eateries as well as shopping spots around my area I think the thing about Paris is, there are many places to eat but a lot in the more popular areas cater to tourists. While many of the bistrots and brasseries serve great food, others are mediocre....
My Gem in Paris: the 2nd Arrondissement, 75002

My Gem in Paris: the 2nd Arrondissement, 75002

While many people prefer to stay in the 6th arr. by Saint Germain des Pres in Paris, I always choose to stay in the 2nd arr. perhaps because I’ve gotten used to the area, but also because I really just love the 2nd district. When I talk about shopping in Paris, it is no longer...
A Quick Paris Fashion Week Roundup

A Quick Paris Fashion Week Roundup

Filming has overtaken my time, along with dinners and work- related meetings so by the time I get home, I am pooped beyond comprehension (it’s age, I tell ya). Tonight though, I had a real strong cup of coffee and my mind is still hyperactive even if my body is already asking for my bed....

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...
Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Bags, FW 2014- 15

Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Bags, FW 2014- 15

This season is the first time for me to be given an invitation to see the Chanel show for FW2014- 15 at the Grand Palais. Getting a Chanel invitation was like receiving the Willy Wonka golden ticket– it was a “jump for joy” moment for me Grand Palais is a magnificent building and I could...
Celebrity Bag: Paris Hilton Carries Paris!

Celebrity Bag: Paris Hilton Carries Paris!

I have not seen that Barbie pink ride of Paris Hilton in awhile! And then today, Paris decides to take her Barbie Bentley out for a spin, and she dressed the part by wearing all pink too. Too cute, really. Like a real- life Barbie!! But uh oh her bag. I have always questioned her...

Paris Fashion Week: Hermes SS2014 Bags

Hi all! I figured the best way to work on the fashion week posts now is to work backwards– from the last show of the season, Hermes. I have been very delinquent with my writing because most of my time has been spent working on something in film (excited to share that with you once...
