So. Hi. I just wanted to check in here because I've been feeling quite disappointed with myself that I haven't been blogging as I'd dreamed I would be. Sometimes I wonder what all those supermom-bloggers do to be able to make all those super-hyper-advanced-carpentry types of home projects, and blog, and live a life. Okay so that was… Continue reading Phew. Am exhausted. (Oh and a color palette.)
Got any plans this long weekend? I'd highly recommend a visit to Real Living Space 2015, happening over at the official showroom of the Avida Towers Centera, Reliance corner Mayflower Streets, Mandaluyong City. I'd actually been busy on this event this past week, despite a bad cough, because I was invited to style the lobby… Continue reading Gal at Home at Real Living Space 2015
One fine day in August, Real Living magazine's editor in chief chats me up via FB messenger and innocently asks "Would you like to style the lobby area for RL Space?" I think I might have peed in my pants in response. It's just a small setup (in fact, I haven't even set it up… Continue reading Must visit this long weekend: Real Living Space 2015
I just realized while thinking of what to post today that I haven't made a proper house tour since I started this blog. So here's my attempt at showing you some of the rooms in our townhouse. The bedrooms are pretty small since the lot area is only around 53 square meters, but we do… Continue reading House tour!
Hello! Well now wasn't today's onslaught of rain and wind (and hail in some parts of the metro, I hear!) something? I hope no one got hurt in this afternoon's maelstrom, and that everyone's home from the horrendous traffic that ensued. If you recall over the weekend, I posted about how I switched up the… Continue reading 9 creative ways to make your own headboard
For quite some time now, my husband and I had been thinking of buying another bed for our toddler. You see, she already has a junior bed in her nursery, which is where she naps and spends most of her day. But since the nursery's up on the 3rd floor and I'm not quite ready… Continue reading A new(ish) junior bed for the babycat!
How've you been doing? I've been a bit busy with several freelance projects that I haven't been able to sit down and blog. So here I am, writing this on a weekend, after a business meeting, grocery duties, and dinner with the family. Because I'd been busy at work, I've also neglected finishing up some… Continue reading Adding color and accessories to style your space
When I moved out from our over 500-sqm house in the suburbs and into a four-storey, all-concrete townhouse with my own family, one of the things that I dearly missed was having a garden. My childhood bedroom window used to face the west, and outside was a backyard populated by a large santol tree, an… Continue reading Making our very own raised-bed roofdeck garden
Belated Happy Dads' Day to all the fathers, single parents, and guardians out there! To celebrate my hubby's second year as a Papa to our babycat, I pulled off a surprise breakfast picnic for him on our roofdeck. We are both such fans of picnics for its (seemingly) carefree vibe and (seemingly) easy prep and… Continue reading Pulling off an outdoor father’s day breakfast picnic
How do you make your bed? This is ours. Almost everything about the way I fix up my own house now comes from my mom, and making my bed was something she taught me well. While our bed doesn't exactly look hotel-glam or showroom-worthy, this is how I've been fixing my bed since I was a kid.… Continue reading The many ways you can make your bed
