London: Blue Skies Overhead!

This blog post is seven (yes, seven!) months late, and is about our UK trip late last year that I never got to write about. The last time we visited the UK before that was a 2-week family trip to London three years ago that gave us a good taste of the city (we even managed to catch 6 plays that time: “Matilda”, “Billy Elliot”, “The Book of Mormons”, “We Will Rock You”, “Lion King” & “Stephen Ward”), but which also made Ito and me realize that there was still sooo much of it left to explore. So on...

Summer Road Trip Tips

It’s summer! Travel is always fun and a great way to de-stress and feed your creativity (it’s waaay better than Pinterest for finding inspirational visuals for your vision/mood board!), and what could be an easier way to satisfy your wanderlust than to simply grab some friends and hit the road to head off to wherever catches your fancy? With summer vacation here, plus all the long weekends lined up for 2017, I predict there’s bound to be a road trip or two (or more!) in your not-so-distant future 🙂 So to help you along, I’ve compiled some practical–as well...

Photo Shoot with Mario Testino (!!!)-Part 2

(continued from “Photo Shoot with Mario Testino (!!!)”) When it was time for us to have our hair and make-up done, we proceeded to another floor where we were given white robes and terry-cloth slippers to change into, while in another room racks upon racks of designer clothes were being steamed and accessories and shoes laid out. As I mentioned earlier, I expected that my wavy hair would be given a blow-out, but to my surprise all it got was an expert scrunching or two from the masterful hands of Christiaan Houtenbos, so that my hair looked as close...

Photo Shoot with Mario Testino (!!!)

(continued from “My Global Campaign Adventure”) This was it!!! The day had come. I woke up earlier than usual from excitement (though truthfully, I barely slept the night before), and I got ready and packed some of my clothes which could possibly be used in the photo shoot later that day. I debated with myself whether to wash my hair (since my hair had that nice, second-day hair look) but since we had gone to the food markets the day before, I decided to shampoo so it would smell nice when they fixed…and I assumed, blew-out…my hair. We were...

My Global Campaign Adventure

Okay, I’ve had a couple of months to process this–still–unbelievable experience of being part of the new Real Beauty global campaign of Dove (read “#RealBeauty, Surreal Experience” here), and if anything, time to breathe and think has just made what happened seem even more incredible! At the time, everything fell into place so quickly that there was barely time to consider what was happening, and in the months that passed, not being able to talk about it just made me focus on work to keep my mind off the anticipation. To backtrack a little, all this whiplash-inducing excitement happened...
