Hello my little lovelies!

They say that when in Rome, do as the Romans do. So what do you do if you find yourself smack right in the middle of the trendiest street this side of Asia?

Do as the Manilenos do, and shop til your hearts (and wads of cash) drops!

There is something about shopping (a.k.a. retail therapy) in Manila that gives you quite a high. Don't know if it's the dirt cheap sale prices, or the amount of eye candy (talking about trendy, hunky shoppers) I get to ogle on that gives me this I-can-rock-the-world-in-high-heels feeling.

Or maybe it's the fact that I can practically wear anything, or any trend, without getting crossed looks from people now as opposed to how people did four or five years ago. I love how the Philippine fashion industry is moving at top speed, and how we are no longer mere spectators if its glory. We, the deprived generation of yesterday, are finally the moving and driving force of (fashion) today.

Hype this on LB.

No longer are we looking at glossy prints wishing we could be the person beyond the image, but today we are that image. We have the power to create and style looks based on who we are an how we feel --and we are (a lot more) free to express ourselves without worrying what others might think. 
I like to believe that the we are the Romans of today - innovative and at the forefront of building the next fashion forward Colosseum.
Only question is, are you here for the ride as well?

2nd BDJ Women's Summit {Giveaway Closed}

Hello darlings! Welcome back to the blog. Today, I'll be showing you what transpired last weekend at the 2nd BDJ Women's Summit. This charitable event was not only inspirational, but it also paved a way for people to get in touch with causes that benefit the women and children of the Philippines. These partner organizations include: Ahon sa Hirap Inc., Angat Buhay, ECPAT PH, Kinamot Nga Buhat, Grace to be Born, Elsie Gaches, Miss Possibilities Foundation, Fairplay for All Foundation, Girls Got Game PH, Plush and Play, as well as Jacinto and Lirio.

I took my friend with me to the Summit Talks and we thoroughly enjoyed their stories. Among the amazing line up of speakers, my absolute favorite ones were about BDJ founder, Darlyn Ty's beginnings and OFW turned Businesswoman, Rebecca Bustamante-Mills success story. It just goes to show that anybody can make it big with small beginnings.
