p1390994_b

Remember the Roots Tri-Fold Clutch Wallet in Tribe Leather that AJ bought for me as pasalubong from his trip in Canada 2 years ago? It has gotten better with age!  After 2 years, it's now sporting a weathered look and a naturally developed patina that is truly beautiful to look at. Just like the wrinkles in the face of a weathered explorer tell a thousand tales, ... READ MORE

Ordering Cath Kidston Online (2016 edition)

Haay, ang ganda talaga!

Longtime readers of my blog know that I heart everything Cath Kidston, and that I've bought most of my CK items online.  Thanks to my Cath Kidston sisters Ellen and Diane, who are also avid CK collectors and online shoppers like me, I was able to get the mugs, bags and other CK accessories that I like - straight from the UK shop. Even when the first Cath Kidston opened in ... READ MORE

Exploring Dumaguete, the DIY Way (Day 1)

P1360180_b

Thanks to Cebu Pacific's Piso Fare sale last June, AJ and I were able to take a much-deserved 4-day vacation and we chose to spend it in Dumaguete City, the City of Gentle People, but more famously known for the following: Apo Island, Silliman University and the numerous dive and snorkeling site around the province. Another equally good reason to visit Dumaguete is its easy ... READ MORE

A Bag Give Away!

P1280800_b

Yes, I'm having a bag give away - as in I'm giving away a bag of mine  =) But first, a little story about the bag (and please don't judge me, awright?). I brought my favorite oversized Balenciaga motorcycle bag at ColorWash Greenhills last year for cleaning, and also to seek expert help in removing the smell that I think came from the molds I tried to remove many times ...

P1330150_b

This is it.  I finally bought myself a luxury designer bag! I wrote about Mansur Gavriel's yummy vegetable leather bags some weeks ago (read it HERE) and casually posted a picture of an MG bag over at Instagram.  Before I knew it, I was exchanging Viber messages with @ruedumarche who was recommended to me by an Instagram friend, @yeyevivas. @ruedumarch  is a ...

I'm having some kind of Cath Kidston withdrawal.  Proof?  I haven't been stalking their website for 3 weeks already haha! It used to be that I check the Cath Kidston website every week, not exactly looking for something to buy but just to window shop. Big thanks to my Cath Kidston sisters - Mother E and Diane, I was able to build up my Cath Kidston collection that fast ... READ MORE

Bag Crush: Mansur Gavriel

mansur_gav

I can't even begin to tell you how bad I wanted to own a Mansur Gavriel.  The Bag Hag blogged about it in January this year, and it was love at first sight (again!) for me. It was the description "very light" that made me take interest in their bags - particularly the tote bag which is simple in design but has very fine structure.  Investing in good leather bag/s is always a ...
