Plastics now banned in Makati

I'm happy that our city has fully implemented the ban on the use of plastic, styrofoam and other other non-biodegradable materials as packaging for groceries,  food and other products beginning June 20, 2013.

Can’t have enough of Longchamp!

P1080656b

I know, I know. I have said before that 2 Longchamp Le Pliage bags are enough for me.   But I couldn't resist buying a third one when I learned that my officemate is selling them at really friendly prices (almost the same price as my first Longchamp bag which I won at eBay). And since my 2 Longchamp bags are both in short handles, I decided my 3rd bag will be in long ... READ MORE

I haven't done a blog post on bags for a while.  Perhaps I've reach my saturation point so I just stopped looking.

James Nares is a New York-based artist known for his unique ... READ MORE

Dealing with Bag Molds

Some weeks back I discovered, to my dismay, that my favorite Balenciaga bag has developed molds after being stored away for quite some time.  I don't know why or how it got molds because I keep all my bags in fabric pouches and there are humidifiers scattered around my bag cabinet.
