OOTD: Walking The Streets Of Makati

Guess what?!  This is my first ever OOTD post!  Woohoo!  Finally.  [for the clueless, OOTD is short for "Outfit Of The Day"]  I just used my Blackberry mobile phone to take these photos so it’s a bit disappointing in terms of quality, but my OOTD posts will only be about what I wore for the day anyway so I suppose what’s important is that it’s clear enough that you can all see what I wore.  Right?  (I know, I know… excuses, excuses!)  So earlier today, I took...

Home Entertaining | The Elements Of Style

This is my first post on the topic of home entertaining (just one other thing I absolutely love doing), and as such, I’ll do my best to keep this post as interesting, exciting, and visually fascinating as I possibly can.   The Art Of Entertaining Entertaining is an art because as with any other form of art, entertaining simply is self-expression.  Throughout the process of planning, organization and execution, you’re giving your guests a glimpse of who you are, what...

Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette: Elegantly Naked

The most anticipated sequel to the Naked palette that came out in 2010 has arrived … at my doorstep! –> [insert evil laugh here!] I got the Urban Decay Naked 2 a few months ago as a gift from Big Daddy.  Ever since its release late last year, I’ve been dying to get my hands on this ubergorgeous palette!  So when hubby finally bought it for me, I literally hopped and skipped like a kid on Christmas Day.
