Work: Calyxta Cover Shoot

Calyxta

Hello self-promotion! I normally feel shy and self-conscious when I talk about my work, but this time I don’t really feel that awkward. Maybe because this shoot isn’t about “me!” but more about my relationship with my older sister Teresa.

Manila-based beauty website Calyxta recently featured me and Teresa as their June cover girls. (Thanks Guys!) I don’t always get to shoot with Ter, especially now that we live in different cities. We are also on different paths, with me on my own solo journey, and Teresa, on becoming a mom.

What I loved about this shoot was that it explored our relationship as sisters in the industry, and revealed new layers about how it was for us growing up.

Reflect x Work: Self-Love

Here’s a post that has to do with some work I did + a ton of reflection-a throwback to the article I wrote for Rappler over 2 years ago on the importance of self-love.

This morning, I was reflecting on that concept because my room mate and I decided to create a “100 days of Self Love” challenge. Basically, we do something everyday that is an act of self-love; whether it’s consciously eating well or doing that one hour of yoga.

The idea stemmed from seeing these “100 happy days” posts on Instagram, and I wanted to put my own spin to it. (However, I’m not posting this challenge online because it’s just a nice, private, roomie ritual that we do and discuss at home.)

I remembered this article I wrote back when I was still living in Singapore. Those days, I was learning A LOT of life lessons about myself and about growing up. But it seems like this concept of self-love is something I will never stop learning about.

Watch: Out Of Scratch Presents “Unscripted”

Out of Scratch Presents: Unscripted Book Launch By Sarah Meier and Vicky Herrera from Out of Scratch on Vimeo.

Another Throwback Thursday post! I’ve been incredibly busy with life right now and will try to update this as much as I can. I like this feeling of working on different projects. Growing through your work feels so fulfilling… I think back to the day Sarah and I launched our book, and the feeling I felt at that event. 🙂

Memory lane got even better when I found this video our friend Geoff made for us. I smile as I see all the faces who gathered in support. I melt when I hear the words of kindness. And I laugh as I watch the 24-year old Vicky speak- pink gloss, straight bangs and crazy lashes to match. I’ve come a long way, but I am still very much that person. ❤
