I am fond of reading fairy tales that start from once upon a time and end with a happily ever after. Given the plot and a little imagination, I sometimes feel like the main character in the story. Reading a fairy book tale makes me feel every inch like a princess. Some of my favorites include Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Rapunzel. These fictitious narratives have also been brought to the cinema as animation movies or live interpretations.
The piece I have designed for the Ensembles contest is now out in stores!

Fashion may mean a lot of things to everyone. To some the term encompasses clothing, shoes, bags and makeup; to others, it means style and a way to express one's personality. For me, it is about art and the thought put in coming up with the overall concept and look of the design, it is about how details are combined with the construction in producing a piece.

I am giving myself the task to be on the hunt for the best macarons in town as I have always been fascinated by how adorable these confections are.
I love how the pastel colors equally match their saccharine taste. Coffee shops and bakeshops alike even put premium on the packaging. For the purpose of review, here are some of the points to consider: Texture, Appearance, Flavor and Filling.

An early Saturday morning rise is like waking up to my favorite music on the radio. It is quite refreshing to know that it's the weekend but you know that something so beautiful can end so quick. But what the heck, it's just a matter of perspective and while I'm at it, I try to savor every minute and every second of it.
Let's rewind to the time when I was just casually viewing my Instagram feed when I saw a post from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL) Philippines about a food writing workshop in partnership with Writer's Block Philippines (WBP) featuring Beatriz Isabel Acosta, Features Editor of ClicktheCity, as guest speaker. Food and writing rolled into one? I knew I needed to attend the event.

It's that time of the year again when school closes yet another curriculum but wait...before the students say goodbye to rigorous reviews and exams, endless nights spent for assignments and projects, prom should be just around the corner which is a means to know others and a reason to celebrate after all the hard work and effort given the whole school year. I remember way back how my school prom happened. It started with deciding who I'd be with (of course I was with close friends that night) and how to get to the venue. I knew I needed to prep myself for the event so I brushed up on skills about formal etiquette. I also prepared internally, you know having the right attitude so I would enjoy the night. Besides all these, I prepared a concept in mind on how I would want to appear at the prom.
