Covet: DAMDAM Tokyo Skincare

Damdam Tokyo sent me a care package last year when I was living in Boracay. Thank you Giselle and Philippe!

You know I always love and support what my friends create. They work very hard + are very humble + are very mindful and intentional about the things they want to put out into the world. #cleanskincare

Here is a reel I made for their brand right before I ran back to the beach. 🙂 (You can still see my tan ;))

Covet: Kinaiya

KINAIYA by @shetalksasia

Kinaiya is a Cebuano word for ‘inner being’. The KINAIYA collection celebrates a woman’s strength of character, and her fearless spirit. For this collab, we chose six Binakol weaves, and two styles that could be worn back to front, dressed up or down. Each piece also features a beautiful embroidery of the She Talks signature lips. 👄

This partnership is quite meaningful for us, because not only do we get to help @anthillfabric provide livelihood to their partner weavers & artisans, a percentage of the sales will also help fund @shetalksasia’s mental health workshops for women.⚡️

Covet: Quidel Candles


Dropped by the Woaw store (HK) a few weeks ago for an event & was able to cop my Quidel Candle

Quidel, which means “burning torch,” in Mapuche, is based off of the Native American belief in fire ceremonies as a ritual to welcome new energy into their life during the full moon.

Covet: A Lovetuner

LoveTunerSo I’ve been giving these out like candy to all my girlfriends who I feel would get it- a Lovetuner. It’s actually not surprising to them once I explain what this is.

Because those who know me know that I have this whole metaphysical side that could jump into conversations about chakras, energy, & self-help, as fast as I could switch to Game of Thrones and hip-hop.

Covet: Cosset Bamboo Basics


I like seeing brands that fuse eco-consciousness with fashion, the ones who bridge the gap between an ethical production process and great design. Then I discovered Singapore-based Cosset, a luxury basics brand made with sustainable bamboo fabric.

Covet: TOMS Sandals & Sunglasses


A big thank you to the TOMS Philippines team for this lovely farewell present before I flew off to Singapore yesterday. TOMS has one of the most inspiring business models I’ve ever known, starting with the decision to donate a pair of TOMS shoes to a child in need for every pair sold.
