10-Minute Window


Amidst a loss for words, an abundance of pending images, and a 10-minute window to hammer down a decent update, I stare at the blinking cursor that taunted me to flesh out words for a good 5 seconds before I fired up a new window desperate for inspiration. It has been a while, yet again, and I am quite rusty with this. I cannot tell you how many times I have tried to nail down the perfect blog post only to feel like it didn't quite make it. Clicking the X button, and then proceeding to watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Now on another hard attempt, I skipped the X button and went straight for a new window to help refresh myself with the world that now seems distant but is still a passion at best. Five fashion blogs later, I realized that even sometimes, you cannot blame yourself for not having the time to work on your own. It just is.

So, perhaps, rather than a comeback, this is me trying to slowly reignite what was once there. As I have learned recently, it is not in the hasty moment of risks that you get the most result, but in the careful chances you take.

Design Mood Board: Reflecting My Style With Modani


Happy weekend! I'm turning 24 in December and I have been thinking about moving out for a while now. I think it's about time I start living on my own and so, I have been scouting for a place. Hopefully, before the year ends, I can get settled in. One of the things I'm looking forward to doing is decorating my new living space. And it was just perfect timing that I stumbled upon Modani modern furniture. So, I put together a little mood board to inspire me with decorating my living room! :) Hopefully, this inspires you too.

I used to picture a nearly all-white living space. But when I saw the Bergamo Grey sofa from Modani modern furniture, I felt like I wanted to design my mood board around it instead. I switched from all-white to grey  with hints of white here-and-there instead because I felt it was more subtle and classy, which I think is where I am with my personal style right now.

I threw in a some pink and prints to add life. Plus, I would definitely love a world map decal somewhere in my new living space. Can't leave that out! :p

With a design flow like this, it will also be easy to switch things out depending on the season or my mood. I feel like it will make it easier as opposed to my initial vision of an all-white space; and, there's more depth to the whole look!

What do you think? How would you design your living space? :)

Total Neutral

Butternut Fashion top; Cinderella pants; Chocolate bag; Zalora Philippines heels

You may have already had a peek at this look if you were able to catch my last blog post wherein I announced that I have started writing for So, for the next outfit post, it only made sense to show you the rest of the look! To be honest, I wasn't sure what I was thinking when I purchased a pair of brown pants. I have never owned pants in this color (khaki, yes; cream, yes), and I struggled quite a bit trying to style them the first time I decided to wear them out.

I always did find them good on a lot of people, especially on guys, so I thought it wouldn't be any different for me. I literally spent an hour trying on different things before settling into my comfort zone--a white top. But I'm definitely going to explore more what my options are for styling this pair and share them with you! :)

Have you ever been in that situation where you purchase something and you're left wondering how you'll style it? What did you do?

Inkdcloud: Search. Set. Get inked!


I find tattoos very interesting. I enjoy looking at them, and love hearing the stories behind each one. I personally don't have any tattoos, but I have thought about it. I have friends who do, and they've shared their stories with me. And although I know what story I'd possibly want to get a tattoo for, I'm not entirely sure about the design.

So, I tried looking online for inspiration and a friend of mine told me about a new web application that's like an online community for tattoo enthusiasts: Inkdcloud. It's a free for all community where you can choose to sign up as a tattoo artist and promote your business, or as a tattoo lover looking for tattoo inspirations and possibly a tattoo artist to do the work for you. 

There's not a lot on it yet, but Inkdcloud is like a search engine that houses different tattoo designs, artists, and shops. If you sign up as a tattoo lover, then you can find information on the different tattoo artists around your area; you will also be able to see some of the tattoo designs they have done in the past (if they have already posted anything). The great thing, too, is that users can leave comments on Inkdcloud regarding the design or the artist, which makes the decision making process easier.

If you are a tattoo artist or own a tattoo shop, then take a look around the site and start building your portfolio on there. It will be a great way to showcase your talent and let people know how they can reach you. 

So whether you're a tattoo artist or a person looking to get tattooed, then check out Inkdcloud at! There are already a couple of shops on there, so take a look around and see. Maybe you'll finally get that tattoo you've been thinking about! :)
