Before I talk about the actual event, let's take a moment to appreciate my prom dress. I initially thought of wearing yellow but my designer said the yellow fabric he had would make me look old. He then suggested the opposite: black and gold. I was sold on the gold glitter and Swarovski crystals. And when my friends asked me to describe my prom dress i'd always reply shining, shimmering, splendid. I didn't feel like a disco ball; I felt like a city of stars in human form. And yes, maybe it was extra but it wasn't tacky. So who's the man…

Yet another outing with my favorite (and only) events buddy, Nico and this time we could sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Two days ago we had the privilege of watching Captain America: Civil War at SM Megamall. Thanks to Tita Patty Betita for having us! I am no film critic. My reaction after every single movie i've ever watched is "It was good!" Likewise, I thought the same for this one. I heard somewhere that DC Comics are better than Marvel comics and Marvel movies are better than DC.  However, I can't judge that because (don't kill me) I don't think I've ever watched a DC…

There's an ongoing stereotype that beauty pageants are all about looks, not smarts. All thanks to Miss Congeniality starring Sandra Bullock, I must admit that I was one of those people who never understood the existence of them. The fictional "Miss United States" pageant showcased extravagant set designs, enchanting music and pretty girls in bikinis and evening gowns. Although the movie replicates what is seen on the surface, the true meaning of beauty pageants isn't explained. My experience at Binibining Pilipinas 2016 taught me that there's so much more to a nice body and a pretty face. Thank you to Tita Mafae Belasco of Mafae Management and Nico Belasco of Nico Belasco…

I finally put my photography skills to the test when my best friend, Allyzza asked me to take pictures for her school project: the Caribbean Special. It is a custom made, cuban-inspired sandwich, which will be sold from February 9 to 12 at the ICA entrepreneurial fair (I may or may not be advertising hehe). Immediately, Allyzza and I both came up with the idea of a picnic. As they say, "great minds think alike" ;). From that point onwards we went to the drawing board, gathering countless pegs on Pinterest, finding a nice location, thinking of what props to use and even telling what our models…

I think the first time I ever stepped foot inside a Pull & Bear store was in Macau. I soon discovered that it is one of the best clothing brands for sweaters, flannels, loose shirts and jeans- especially jeans. November means sweater weather so if you're looking for cute and comfy pieces, Pull & Bear's got you covered. I found out that it was opening at the SM Mega Fashion Hall when I came across the huge sign on the second floor. A few days later, I was invited to the opening along with my mom, my mentor Tita Patty, make-up artist Tita Lou, and blogger/ice skating bestie, Ysabel…

H&M- only the most well-known clothing brand in the world. There's not a single person I know who doesn't like H&M. There's a range of items to choose from that suits everyone. So when I found out I was invited to the VIP opening party, I was extremely excited! Thanks to H&M Philippines and my mentor, tita Patty Betita for making it happen. I'm sure a lot of people have already seen a glimpse of the three-floor store at SM Megamall, but if you haven't, here's what it looks like. Two of the floors are dedicated to women's clothes, accessories and shoes so yay us!…
