Remembering The Beginning (+ $100 Sephora Giveaway!)

Today I wasn't able to go to work because I was sick. I didn't go to the doctor but I was feeling flu-like symptoms and was too weak. I also couldn't stay awake for more than two hours without feeling woozy. This might have been avoided had I stayed home last Saturday but I couldn'…

Althea Korea turns 1!

Guess who's turning one.

Krissyfied Makes: Resin Jewelry

I've already said this before but it's worth mentioning now: I am happiest when I make. Weaving words is still my favorite medium of self-expression, but no matter what I'm making – prose or poetry or crafts – I'm always in the zone when I'm making something out of nothing. I h…

I work in PR and it's important that I look presentable especially during events, but I don't have the luxury to look in the mirror and…

Peeking through The Lost Journal of Alejandro Pardo

Weather forecasts said the typhoon has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility, but the sky continued to be relentless and unforgiving today. I was supposed to go out but I stayed home instead.
Not that I'm complaining.
They say you don't have to leave the comforts of your house to visi…

My Penshoppe Denimlab DIY Bar experience

Hello, weekend! I am so ready for you. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

But before I curl up in bed with my pillow and the book I'm currently reading (Blast from Two Pasts by Kristel Villar), I'd like to share what we did last weekend.

I've probably helped organize or gone to more than a couple hundred of even…
