Photos of My Life No. 3: Inside My Bag
Posted on: 8th of June 2010 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

For my third set of Photos of My Life, an anonymous reader requested a look inside my bag. The last time I posted the contents of my handbag was way back in 2007 when I did the Face Your Pockets Project, so I had fun doing this.


Click image for a slightly bigger size.

Bag: Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Petit Noe (Brown). I love this bag, because I can use it with almost anything in my closet. It’s big enough to carry a lot of my junk too.

Inside: Book (I read everywhere, so I always bring a book with me), Aldo wallet, hairbrush, Charm stippling brush, M.A.C. lipstick in Brick-O-La, M.A.C. Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach, M.A.C. Studio Fix in NC35, Smith’s Rosebud Salve, mints, a tiny bottle of lotion, travel pack tissue (I always stock up on these when I’m in Manila… they don’t have this size here!), house keys, Cotton On shades (my sensitive eyes can’t live without sunnies), hair tie, metal Parker Jotter pen in pink, iPod touch (I use this mostly to play games. Current addictions: Scramble, Words with Friends and Angry Birds), iPod earphones, BlackBerry Curve 8320, Canon Ixus 80is, moleskine notebook.

This is already a scaled down version of the things that I usually stuff in my bag (I usually carry more makeup). I try to bring only the essentials now.

I also enjoy peeking inside other people’s bags, so show me what’s inside yours too. :)

Photos of My Life No. 2: One Thing that Symbolizes Home
Posted on: 6th of June 2010 | Under: Artsy Fartsy, Life & Love

For my second set of Photos of My Life, Kat requested:

Since you’re here in SG, i’d like to know what is the one thing that symbolizes “home” for you and/or the thing that makes your homesickness go away all the time :)

This was a little hard, because I have quite a long list of things that make me miss Manila. But, there is one particular thing that I like looking at every time I’m in our living room, and that’s this Umbra Fotofalls Desktop Photo Tree my brother gave me a few Christmases ago:

Satellite Photo Mobile

It holds eighteen different set of pictures of people that make Manila home for me.

:)I reckon it’s a beautiful piece of art.


Photos of My Life No. 1: Makeup
Posted on: 2nd of June 2010 | Under: Fashion & Beauty, Life & Love

Thank you for all your photo requests for my Photos of My Life project. :)

The first set of photos, as requested by my sister Carla, will be my stash of makeup. Now, I don’t really have that much makeup (not as much as my makeup artist sister, that is), but I reckon I have quite enough to satisfy my slight addiction to prettifying myself.

Here’s my makeup stash:


I keep my makeup in these drawers from Muji. If you read back to one of my blog posts almost two years ago, I revealed my neat-freak personality, pointing out my love affair with cleaning and organizing my stuff. Storing my makeup in a neat and organized way is therefore not a big surprise. Like I said in my post before, these drawers were love at first sight. I started out with only two layers, but since these are completely stackable (I can buy extras whenever I want!), I bought 2 more layers a couple of months ago.


I keep different types of makeup in separate drawers, that way I know exactly where to find things when I need them.

Now, let me give you a tour inside my drawers. :)


Photos of My Life
Posted on: 30th of May 2010 | Under: Artsy Fartsy, Life & Love

If you don’t already know, I love photography. I enjoy taking photos, whether they be styled or random shots. My Flickr has over 700 photos of my love affair with cameras and photographs.

Belong to Me

I’d like to try something new this time, and I’ll be needing your help. :)

All I need you guys to do is to ask me to take a photo of any aspect of my life; be it a place or an item or something that symbolizes something to me. Ask me anything you might be curious about (from stuff in my bedroom, my favorite shoes, or other random things), and I’ll post a photo of it.

Don’t be shy, guys! Just ask away. This will definitely be a great way for you all to get to know a little bit more about me and my life. :)


Here are the completed photo requests:
