The dark side of Barbie

As a fundraiser for Ballet Philippines, James Reyes came up with five different looks for the iconic doll, all of which will be auctioned off for the benefit of Ballet Philippines’ scholars. He is one of 40 designers in the country that did so. Here’s one of James’: Don’t you just love the drama, grandeur and fabulous…

Pretty. Excited.

Would you like to have dinner with Neil Gaiman? I would. But I’d probably just stare at him all night and listen to him talk about anything—his dogs, cats, Amanda, stuff he’s writing about, whatever. Scoring an entire set of signed Sandman volumes wouldn’t hurt either. Yes, I have all 10. Some are signed. But…

I miss you already

This morning, I woke up with Lady Gaga singing in my head. Bad Romance, to be exact. It played in my head all morning and I shrugged it off, thinking, well, blame the group performances on Hollywood Week. And then the cab I got on played Lady Gaga. Poker Face and Bad Romance. And then…

The tradeoff is real nice, though: a sparkling-clean bathroom, fresh sheets, and a dust- and hair-free floor. Don’t ask me why but the…

Satiating hunger pangs

I like clothes, obvious ba? Anyhoo, what this means is I take every opportunity I can to have a new frock (made or bought, doesn’t really matter). Regular shopping excursions don’t count because then, the dress will seem too frivolous. But shopping for an occasion – ayayayayai! So I make it a point to have…

Retail therapy

Would you believe that these are all laptop bags? Yes, they’re pretty and sturdy enough to hold your precious Mac or PC. I’ve been holding out on buying a laptop bag for the longest time, solely because I don’t own the one I’m using. These pretty babies might just change my mind. All bags from…
