i read you like a poem or a holy book

i’m sorry i’ve been so MIA, i’ve just been going through a really rough time.

but not everything has been terrible, far from it even, and i’d be a complete ingrate to have it come off that way. i’ve been working for the past two months now as the Associate Fashion Editor at a magazine here in the philippines and it’s been such a wonderful experience : ) it’s really such a huge milestone for me because i used to space out hardcore in high school trying to imagine what it would be like to hypothetically work for a magazine, and here i am actually getting paid to do it! it’s unreal. i don’t generally like to speak at length about my personal life but there are very few things that i’ve really put my heart into and been proud of and this is one of them at the moment.

okay okay, less talking, more pictures.

As a little reprieve from all the backlogged Israel pics, here are a few things that have been keeping me en ocupado:

Black leather ‘Shanghai’ flats by Anthology

ridic Halloween nails + sharpie tattoo +  faux grass ring by Mae Pang


Had dinner at Restaurant 101 in Enderun. As part of Manila Restaurant Week, a bunch of places were offering 4 course meals served with wine for P999 ($23). Really excellent stuff. If we hadn’t left for Israel we’d have eaten out all week long.

crab and tomato terrine with cucumber cream and keta caviar

Melt in your mouth double boiled oxtail consommé with foie gras roulade and pearl barley

roasted barramundi with capers, orange butter, fennel and olivette potatoes

Also stopped by for lunch at KAI in Greenbelt 5

wasabi oyster tempura

seared tuna sushi

thinly sliced wagyu with dipping sauces (can i just add: sjfldfjsljfljfkljsljf)

Also incredibly stoked that my birthday Fifi Lapin brooch has arrived at my boyfriend’s place in Singapore!

The Breakfast Club

1 Aug

Helped Chuck out with a shoot the other week that just came out in this month’s Juice, yay : )

The whole concept was of  a lazy Sunday brunch and very naturally it was decided to shoot over at Hatched, the specialty breakfast and eggs nook on Evans Road.

Hazel, who was in charge of the shoot, brought the same Christopher Kane Topshop tote as me haha

Scans of the finished product:

Super cute. Pick it up if you see a copy of Juice!

Roxy Music

This was a nice shoot to work on. Really sunny, right by the water, lots of fat little skater kids desperately trying to scrape their way out of the bowl. Tiring for sure, but also kind of relaxing.
