Stripes and Florals

I’ve been trying to be more blogger-y lately– participating in Twitter chats, thinking about doing Instagram stories, and documenting everything. So here I am at the car dealership with some complimentary chips that I’m sure as heck going to take if everything is wrong with my car. I chickened out of taking pictures there. I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I want to develop … Continue reading Stripes and Florals

Girlfriend Experience & Office Wear

I just finished watching the Starz series The Girlfriend Experience which seems loosely based on the 2009 film of the same name. I saw the movie a while ago and don’t remember it exactly, but the tv program was much more of ride. It was probably not the show’s intention to make one want to emulate Riley Keough’s Christine Reade, but it was impossible for me not to notice Christine’s wardrobe. … Continue reading Girlfriend Experience & Office Wear

I think I’m always going to associate fall with going … Continue reading Fall Chill

Pick-Up

My dad had a little reunion with his high school buds back in his hometown, so I had to pick him up from the airport. I’m not much of a driver, so I’m pretty proud of myself for being able to navigate it. This is actually the mall because I didn’t feel like driving back to the airport. It was under construction though I managed to … Continue reading Pick-Up

Rags2Riches

My heritage has always been important to me and while it can be incredibly generalizing to paint all of the Philippines as “poor” that is just personally from where my family comes. Certain images and traits like charity have been seared into my personality, but donations can be problematic (e.g., corrupt organizations). That’s why I’m interested in brands that either feature local artisans and/or further teach those … Continue reading Rags2Riches
