Launching of ‘Francesca: Isa, Dalawa, Sorpresa! (A Fabulous Celebration!)’


I was tickled pink by the invitation of mother Ellen to grace the launching of her and her friends's first book project, the bilingual children's book "Francesca: Isa, Dalawa, Sorpresa!

Elegance is Timeless with American Standard’s Luxe and Style Collection


I was invited by American Standard to the Luxe and Style Blogger Engagement last Saturday (July 19) and thanks to my angels - Ross and Mimi - I did not only make it to the event, but I had a super great time too! I am not new to the American Standard brand of toilet bowls and wash basin (or 'water closet', as they are collectively called) because I have personally ... READ MORE
