Word Vomit: On Turning 4

Word Vomit: On Turning 4 | Anne's Scribbles and Doodles
Four years ago, this blog was born out of sheer thirst for creativity. I was fresh out of college. After some memorable years of burrowing my nose in accounting books and burning my bushy eyebrows, I needed a creative escape. What I initially intended to be a platform for my poetry and short stories ultimately became a diary of sorts.

Spotlight: Oona Holtane the Creative Enthusiast | Anne's Scribbles and Doodles
When life takes on a sharp route towards boredom-land, the slightest glimpse of creativity can be the very spark we need to turn monotony into excitement. I for one gravitate towards visual and literary cues. They're my fuel and I believe I'm no stranger to this feeling. It is for this reason that I've decided to resurrect Spotlight, a blog series where I introduce some of the creative folks I stalk idolize from all over the world. Today, I'm focusing the limelight on Oona Holtane, Chicago based illustrator and designer with a penchant for art, music and British humor.

How do women "werq" it? How do we walk the talk? Females are no doubt multi-hyphenates. We all juggle a lot of roles so others can't help but stare in wonder. Truth be told, we each have our ways just the same as we are all unique. If we do try to look closely however, we'll soon realize that there are common denominators: food and fashion. Who would've guessed it would be so simple?

To My Unnamed Prince Charming by Anne Macachor
I've written too many rhymes and verses for a face I haven't seen. How do you do it? You’ve managed to visit me in my dreams. Through faint cracks within my boring humdrum days, you’ve seeped through my senses down to the very core bringing light into the overcast.

I never imagined that I would come to associate the word "therapeutic" with watercolor. Growing up, I've gotten myself into various arts and crafts but never had the chance to experiment with the medium not until lately. Now, I could add it to the list of things I'd rather be doing on a Friday night. Apart from reading and writing (or eating) of course.

BeautyMNL: Makeup in a Jiffy + Maybelline Haul

BeautyMNL: Makeup in a Jiffy + Maybelline Haul | Anne's Scribbles and Doodles
Shopping is a delight but one has to admit that it's not all pretty. Long queues at the counter, the flock of people at this time of the year and not to mention the catastrophe that is traffic, it can get ugly. Then there's online shopping. It sounds great and the lure is too good to resist but truth be told not all experiences are delightful. Think of counterfeit products or delivery that takes ages (or is twice more expensive than the product itself). This prompted me to be extra cautious when it comes to the sites I buy from. Actually, I tend to avoid shopping online as much as I could. That is until I discovered BeautyMNL.
