Belle de Jour 2013 Fair: Make It Happen

Two weeks ago, I was able to attend the launch of the Belle de Jour 2014 planner. While I’ve been using the dainty planners for five years now, I’m still thrilled to see what the team has to offer.  

The fair itself is very fun! Like last year’s Belle de Jour fair, Mall of Asia’s Music Hall served as an avenue for exciting activities and enriching talks.

Sugar Town at Its Finest: Calea Bacolod City

I can attribute Bacolod’s penchant for sweet things to the fact that the city is surrounded with sprawling sugarcane fields. My Papa, who hails from the “City of Smiles”, used to tell me how they’d freely pick sugarcane simply because it was that abundant. When I revisited Bacolod, I made sure to satiate my sweet tooth by going to Calea – the city’s pride when it comes to cakes.

Charles and Keith & Grendha Haul

“A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes,” says a highly-acclaimed shoe designer. While I will never spend an exorbitant amount of money for a pair of Loubotins which I will eventually ruin, I’m very fortunate to meet an equally stylish brand which doesn't leave me with ailing feet and wallet: Charles and Keith. Thanks to the utmost comfort that it brings, I was able to amass more than 20 pairs from this brand in less than a year!

December's Magic Wand

I’ve been watching a lot of “New Girl” these days hoping that Jessica Day’s disposition will somehow rub on me. While I’ve always been optimistic, recently, I feel like I’m about to be trapped in a vortex of negativity.

I know that I will eventually regain my rose-tinted glasses but for the meantime, let me share some of the photos which I find aww-inducing.  So…who’s excited for December or simply put, the month where almost everyone is engaged in a conspiracy of love and generosity?
