In with the new, out with the old. Trends come and go. But this doesn't mean that you'd have to throw all your old clothes away. That's just not practical. So what's a girl got to do?

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

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.

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.
