Mixing work and family #QT here in Cebu

What have I always been doing if not say YES to things that scare me? This blog, my band, my interior styling career. All because I said that three-letter word that changes the course of one's life. I know I'm being overly dramatic about this, but I'd like to think this is a pivotal moment… Continue reading Mixing work and family #QT here in Cebu

Designing a coffee cart for a coffee mix brand

HUH. So I wrote this entry a week ago, and forgot to publish it. TYPICAL ME. Anyway, here goes. ------------- A coffee cart isn't exactly a home project, but I love the way this project turned out so much that I want to share this here. Besides, I'd like to think that I was able to use… Continue reading Designing a coffee cart for a coffee mix brand

Phew. Am exhausted. (Oh and a color palette.)

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.)

Gal at Home at Real Living Space 2015

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

House tour!

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!

How I (finally) styled my home office shelves (part 2)

Remember when I tried styling my home office shelves several ways, but wasn't quite happy with the results of my labor? I think I've finally styled them in a way that I find satisfying. If you don't remember, these are the different permutations of what my home office shelves looked like before. First they looked like this: Then, I… Continue reading How I (finally) styled my home office shelves (part 2)

Event styling: Glamour-themed 18th birthday party

Just recently, I accepted a project on styling a Hollywood glamour-themed debut (my sister's events company, Pink Sunshine Events, did the events coordination for it). The budget was pretty tight as the debutante had only decided to hire an events stylist a few weeks before the big day. She basically asked me to improve on the decor… Continue reading Event styling: Glamour-themed 18th birthday party

1 reading corner, 2 ways

Hi everyone. Well, I can't seem to post regularly on my blog now, can I? My sincerest apologies for this. Been going through some, um, things, in life lately, so this had to take a backseat. Anyway. Moving on. We spent the weekend over at my parents. I love (1,000,000x) spending the night at my parents.… Continue reading 1 reading corner, 2 ways

Adding color and accessories to style your space

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

How to make your own typographic art

Why hello there! I'm no graphic designer, but having worked in magazines has exposed me to the wonderful world of typography. I love seeing how letters in different shapes, forms, thinness, and thickness, styles, and types effectively convey a particular mood and emotion, while still giving off a visually pleasing effect. Beautiful type is great design,… Continue reading How to make your own typographic art
