Good news!
Jul Dizon, Edsa Shangri-La Hotel, is now open.
Jewellery enthusiasts can shop to their hearts delight at the elegantly re-furbished salon.
Congratulations Ginny, Anne, Candy and Lucille!

Mom was supposed to be my date but she chickened out when she found out there were other people. She hates big crowds and small talks. Seriously, I've never known a more private person than her. Once we were at a social event (extremely rare occasion for her) and when a photographer took a picture of us, she gave a fake name. True story.

She'll kill me when she sees this. :)

She supports me in EVERYTHING except this blog. haha.

It Takes Two

Oct 16, 2010


 Since it's been awhile since our last joint post, we went a little trigger happy for this one.
This is our "pretend we're walking around Bryant Park during Fashion Week" series!


vintage top, F21 jeans, Soule Phenomenon shoes, Aranaz bag

We decided to crawl out from under our rock and head over to SM Makati for the Fashion Forum event where they debuted the department store's high end brands.

with our blogger dates, Dani and Paolo of The Shady Chronicles.

We also bumped into Aisa and Bestie!

Here are some of our picks from the show:

Endless Spring

Oct 10, 2010

thirfted skirt, Zara top, H&M sunglasses, H&M heels

It's been awhile hasn't it? Been really busy with a whole bunch of
projects! By November I'll be back posting more regularly...I hope! :)
Anyway! While Hanna was scoring on one fantastic
thrifted item after another (see previous post --- Thrifted Celine. ENVY.),
I came up almost empty handed until I came across this skirt! 
Minus the 'granny' vibes it's definitely workable don't you think???

Scarf Shirt

Oct 7, 2010



Thrifted vintage Celine Scarf Shirt! A lucky find when Lil Miss R and I went for an out of town adventure with Bianca.
Check out the engraved mother of pearl buttons!

Uh-oh, three posts in three consecutive days.
This can only mean one thing.
I've got too much time in my hands and have nothing else better to do with my life.

To be fair, I have been planning my next adventure and booking flights for my up-coming escape.

I cannae wait to bust out again.

When in doubt,

Wear a man's shirt.

Trust me, it will make you feel dead sexy.



A friend just texted to ask if I was channeling my homegirl Holly in this post.

Old School

Oct 4, 2010


Went out for a nice long lunch with my friends Missy, Alexi, Anjie and Isabel today. We tried this Indian place along Jupiter called 'something' of India or 'Indian Spice' or 'Indian Flavors' or something with the word India in it. I actually can't remember the name but suffice it to say I really enjoyed the food. I had a chicken vindaloo which was spicy, lovely and had me drinking a gallon of water.


Aaaah, going out for looonng lunches is the activity I love most in life. While afternoon teas, dinner parties, walking around a beautiful garden, going for a picnic, and wandering in costume museums follow very closely...

'Hi, I'm Hanna and I just casually turned 60 overnight.'

My friends always tease me because I never go to parties at night. It's like I got sick of the 'scene' before I was ever a part of it. This is partly because I hate the dark (going to the cinema used to give me the creeps..think of your proximity to all the total randoms. though recently a friend has tried to convert me with success!) and partly because I can't stand the smell of smoke sticking to my clothes and hair (the concept of 'no smoking in enclosed spaces' has yet to reach my country). Besides, people on a night out seem to only have 'fake' fun. And in my books, if you can't be fun while sober, then chances are you're no fun at all.

Also, when else can you knit?

Or get massages?

Or look through your mother's drawers?


Vintage Python bag from Edinburgh by way of Cyprus. It's fascinating how far this bag has traveled to belong to me.
Behind it, a back issue of Vanity Fair with Grace Kelly on the cover. Vanity Fair has always been my favorite this issue there is a marvelous story about the 2 men who founded Time magazine and a beautiful write-up on Christian Louboutin that makes me wish I was his friend. You can also spy my Ipod, a generous gift from my technologically savvy sister and my lipstick which I cannot live without.


The baubles worn today. My Jul Dizon Indian cuff with rose cut diamonds and a cabochon ruby, my burmese ruby ring (the most fascinating shade of red!), my navette ring from ama, and my topaz ring from Malena (I miss you!).


and here is my carved wooden chest from my grandmother! A total thing of beauty. It smells like the forest too, which is a pleasant bonus.
