Here is 2/26 of my #MarathonBookClub reading list. I picked this up in an airport bookstore (again!), as I find that is usually the place where I find something that I am meant to read. This book, Essays In Love, by Alain de Botton caught my eye. I’ve read a few of his books already and I always feel like he gives great insight and anaylysis into whatever he writes about.
Linking philosophical ideas and love this time, but blended within a fictional story, makes this quite an easy read. De Botton picks up on the details, the seemingly non-important elements to romance, that are relevant in the overall picture of a relationship. Perspective shift much?
Mental note to self: Pick up more of his books for the future.
When I was back in Manila a few weeks ago, one of my favorite editors Liza Ilarde, asked me to write about one of my closest girl friends, Sarah Meier, for the “Women Who Wow” issue of Style Weekend.
I met Sarah when I was around 9 years old, and have always looked up to her growing up. Not only are we in the same agency in Manila, CalCarries, but she is also incredibly close to all my siblings as well.
Sarah is the reason why I became a host because she pulled me to co-host a radio show called “The Dollhouse.” Above is a photo I took of her when we were prepping for our morning stint at 6 am. Beautiful vibes already when the sun came up.
Read what I had to say about Sarah below…
First time in Shanghai a few weeks ago for work. Really loved it! Need to go back and really explore it longer. Here are some quick shots I was able to get in between the conference.
This is so adorable. I swear my sis Teresa told me this story in the middle of us shopping for house stuff in IKEA. I started tearing up halfway between the 1st and 2nd floors. Had to go home and find this video immediately! Enjoy!
So the news is out <3 I am the newest brand ambassador for TOMS Philippines!
Super A Market was one of my favorite spots in Tokyo. Located in Aoyama, this multi- brand store houses a mix of luxury items, housed in a fun, easy, and light space that resembles the feel of shopping in a supermarket. I was too caught up in looking at the racks to take proper photos, but here are the ones I managed to sneak in.
A few weeks ago I was in Tokio with one of my closest girl friends from Singapore. We decided to spend the Chinese New Year break over there to get some much needed rest, relaxation, and research.
Since we are both interested in the fields of fashion, art, and design, we knew that Tokyo would be a perfect spot to find new ideas. I really take inspiration from all the details from the different spaces; you can really feel how complete the vibe is by just looking at the pictures.
Here are some photos from the trip after the jump.
