Since I grew up in a country that is so exposed to American culture, seeing Cambodian men walking and biking around in a very hot noon wearing collared polo instead of T-shirt is an interesting sight to me. I realized, this is a casual outfit for men of Siem Reap, Cambodia. I think I’ve seen more girls wearing what I’m used to as “casual clothes”- … Continue reading Wrap Around Cambodia

Look what I found! I like how Filipino artists show some patriotism these days. I found this very affordable yet stylishly useful bag in Kultura Filipino (as usual) in SM Makati.

Of course there’ll be some little things about beauty and wellness in it! What am … Continue reading Hello FUN!
Improvised Statement Necklaces. This is a headband that I bought in Baclaran (in Manila) years ago. It actually has a gold chain which I inserted the white ribbon from National Bookstore (sold per yard). My first intention was to change the ribbon in the headband depending on the outfit but since I feel that it’s quite tedious and white looks sophisticated, I decided to wear it in … Continue reading
Philippines is one of the best places for women in the world according to World Economic Forum (WEF) because of being a gender-friendly nation.

I’m wearing cousin’s polo, black leggings and boots from SM Parisian. I … Continue reading
Since we dress according to the mood and occasion, I decided to wear a very colorful tube dress today. Why? Because the weather is so gloomy and I’m hoping to have some cheerful little things to see and for others to see to regain the fun. The catch with this dress is I bought it for 500Php in Landmark and surprisingly, I didn’t know that … Continue reading Some colors won’t harm you
