Wedding Bells Are Always Welcome, Monique Lhuillier's Spring 2012 Collection

No, its not for me. the inspirations are for a good friend who just got engaged in Baguio recently.
So very happy for her.

I hope you like these inspirations as much as I do.













I like One, Five, Seven and Twelve the best. While Marga loves One, Eight, Nine, and Ten.

Where would you cast your vote?

My Favorite Place for Cheap (but expensive looking) Swimwear

I was off on an Asian trip with the family recently and while summer is nearly over, I had enough time to catch up with the season and get a great stash of swimwear.

I decided not to go for the ever so popular triangle bikini and decided to go for different styles and cuts.

Here are the swimwear I can't wait to wear... If only it won't be raining that is.

Here are the other colors:

Each suit (a complete set would only cost up to about Php 1,300 max!
Plus, you have the advantage of not seeing it on a lot of people as its not available locally.
H&M always has a good selection of suits every year.

On Coming Home and Home Inspirations

Coming back from a long trip never fails to make me feel a tad bit homesick. I miss my bed since I always put emphasis on sleeping paraphernalia, pillows and bed covers.

I miss having my whole array of things around me- just within an arms reach.

And I love being in the midst of my stuff, my organized chaos, and knowing exactly where things are.

I like the thought of knowing that I can look back and see my well lit, glass cabinet made especially for my shoes and seeing that every inch of what I see around me has come from 12 hours a day of hard work.

With something new and big just around the corner, I decided that my little special place in the world deserves a little sprucing up and so... here are the things on my Home Shopping List:

1) Artsy Fartsy Prints from Heima

2) Round Stool from Dimensione

3) Paul Smith-esque Throw Pillows

4) Armchair with Character from Our Home

5) Ottoman from Our Home

Other Items on the list include:
6) Floor Lamp (Restoration)
7) Clothes Stand
8) Shoe Rack
9) Vases (Haze)
10) Jewlery Organizers (Make Room)

What would your A
look like?

Beijing Shoe Loot

Here's what I have robbed myself off during last week's trip... thank you to the people who have invented plastic. More power!

If there is one thing I always can't go elsewhere without buying... it has to be shoes.
So here is a rundown of the culrpits.

1) YSL Palais Suede Platform in Electric Blue Suede

2) Miu Miu Black Satin Platforms

Don't you just love shoes and that special feeling you get when you wear them?

One for the Men, Zara Man 2011 LookBook

Been trying to move the boyfriend toward the right direction, in a fashion sense anyway. And I tell you, it's not so easy to convince a man to (literally) change his old and faded ways.

In order to nudge him a little further and in a more affordable option, (so its okay to make mistakes) Zara seemed like the perfect choice to inspire him with its wide array of styles, its availability (it still has a little snob factor here in Manila) and of course, the great price.

Its a great starting point for any budding fashionsita!

Zara Lookbook Men Spring 2011

I prefer the first, second and third look. The forth one is just too much for the guys guy in my opinion.
The first look is chic and very much European while the second and third look could go well in our weather- I am not too sure if Manila is quite ready for the suit and sandals look.

Absolutely lurve these looks! The outfits shout "Yes, I think of what I'm wearing because I do care!"
There is nothing hotter than a man who cares... and the confidence to carry it off.


Thank you, Zara for showing the cool, mature and confident man how it's done.

What kind of look do you wanna see guys wearing?
