When you love cats and your friends love dogs - and you cannot decide which pet cafe to go to, you meet halfway. We met at Bengal Brew, Wolf and Bear Cafe in Manhattan Garden, Cubao, a cat and dog cafe in one.

Gelish Dip Now in Philippines | Gelish Dip Review

Happiness is freshly-painted nails. Nails that don't chip and peel after a few days.

Last week, I got to try the newest technology in gel polish through the world’s leading gel polish brand, Gelish® Soak-Off Gel Polish. Let's call it #GelishDip.

I am Glad I am a Woman, I Don't Need to Worry About Facial Hair

I hate being a woman - once every month. 

Now, made peace with myself and embraced womanhood (okay, it is not a pregnancy announcement post) :p

Build Your Own Pizza, Pasta and Salad at Project Pie

build your own pizza project pie bgc

Square box, round pizza and triangle slices. Sometimes, pizza can make you wonder (just like how people surprise you at times - but still you love em - pizza and people!).

Oftentimes, you only need to look at the label to know what kind of pizza you are getting. 

If you are like me who gets tired of the usual thing and the usual flavors/toppings of pizza, swing by at the newest Project Pie store in W City Center, BGC and #BYO - Build Your Own!

Shopping for Gold at Just Jewels

Shopping for Gold at Just Jewels Mall of Asia

I used to think gold is too loud and old. Until I get to this age and I see it as an elegant and timeless accent. 

More than being a good accessory to complete one's look, gold is also a good investment. Gold retains its value even during times of crisis.

The Day I Met Romnick Sarmenta at Salu Restaurant

The Day I Met Romnick Sarmenta at Salu Restaurant 

It was a simple invitation for lunch. Actually, it was a second invitation for an intimate lunch at Salu Restaurant in Quezon City. The first one was for a special Mother's Day event which I regretfully declined because of family commitment. The second one I said yes. Glad I did.

Tagging along @rodelflordeliz, we entered Salu Restaurant as if we were traveling the islands of the Philippines. The restaurant facade already caught our attention and in our minds, #ood shoot pegs were already being laid out.
