peace, love, & lip gloss

Casual-chic geek in the pink.

Yesterday was a pretty busy day for me. Because I got home a bit late last Saturday after watching Ipanema's and Penshoppe's shows for PFW S/S 2012, I decided to just go straight to my apartment.since I also have "appointments" the next day. I was invited by Accessorize's blog…

Sweet serenity: Jason Mraz Live in Manila 2011

The past week has been crazy and seemed to suck all energy out of me, and even though I attended only two shows of the Philippine Fashion Week it still left me feeling exhausted.
Sweet repose came from watching Jason Mraz's concert at the SMART Araneta Coliseum last night ♥

We were seated at t…

Flipped.

"Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent. And once you do, nothing will ever compare." - Chet, Bryce's grandfather
I just finished watching Flipped and even though I really need to prepare to leave and …

Yabang Pinoy presents Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011

It's almost Christmas, and we all know what that means ;) It's the time to spread joy and love through Christmas gifts, and what better way to do that than by displaying Filipino talent and upholding Filipino pride at the same time?
I am inviting everyone to visit the Global Pinoy Bazaar on …

Feeling luxe with F&H and Kotex

A mini-rant. I don't know what's up with my email inbox lately, but even important emails go straight to spam, causing me to miss out on a couple of event invites. Like this one, I only got to see Miss Nicole's email on the day of the launch itself, when I have already made plans with m…

Seventeen Memories

It can start with a smile. Or a nod. Or agreeing that the Spice Girls is the greatest girl band of our time. Or that the Mean Girls movie is the best girl bonding-movie. Or liking the same shoes. Or a tweet. Or a comment in a blog-post. The thing is, you can meet friends anywhere.
It's only a …

Print and Imprint with Canon PIXMA Printers

It would be nice if I could dedicate one wall in my apartment for prints and framed pictures, and since I love taking and posing for photos it shouldn't be too difficult to do, right? I couldn't even tell you how many Tumblr posts, weheartit photos, and Pinterest pins I have collected, not …

Of houses and decorating.

I've been living independently for three years now, could you believe that? Even I myself find it hard to believe, but yeah, here is a post I wrote back in 2008 to prove it :) The past three years of living on my own (the first two were spent with housemates though) are filled with lots of sta…

Ipanema gives you the chance to spoil your sole in Rio Carnival!

When I was a child, I disliked travelling and going to faraway places. It's not difficult to see why, what with all the packing and unpacking, long and boring hours on the trip to and from the destination, and just the over-all exhaustion from the trip. That was before. Now that I'm a fully…

Happy.

I don't know what's wrong with me, but I've been too lazy to do anything lately. Whereas I used to be so enthusiastic and willing to experience life and everything it offers, I find that I cannot muster the same passion as I did before.
I hope this is just a phase and it will pass soon…

I helped someone have a house.

I spent yesterday for a special and worthy cause by attending Miss Jenny's Birthday Build for Habitat for Humanity. Her birthday is this coming Wednesday, but instead of doing the usual route by throwing a huge party at a bar or club, she decided to "make it count" by inviting friend…
