On a whim I decided I'd wear a blazer and matching shorts to Art Fair Philippines last Sunday. It's no suit but there's something to it because the fabric of both blazer and shorts - which I bought separately (years apart in fact) - are an exact match, which is a textured meld of powder blue and white. I also have matching pants, which, when worn with the blazer, made me look like I was attending a summer wedding.

I'm really loving the weather these past days. Though I know this is probably what summer feels like in some countries but to us third-world, tropical country dwellers, this is "winter!" Especially in the office.
So it's time to bring the sweaters out!

I love long cardigans, even if I don't really own a lot of them. There's something about them that affords the wearer some instant swagger. Think of how it flutters gloriously as it catches the wind while you saunter your way through the streets or the halls of your office. Pure swag! Or at least that's what I think.
I've found myself channeling The Dark Knight with a long cardigan before and on another occasion, a wizard (of the Harry Potter mold). So when I chanced upon an even longer cardi, I knew I just had to get it.

If you're looking for a nice Valentine dinner with your special someone but don't want to break the bank, might I suggest the Manila Pavilion Hotel for you? I mean, it's not dirt-cheap but it's very reasonable if you want to impress.
With The Taste of Romance: A Valentine's Dinner Buffet at Seasons Restaurant, you and your partner are sure to get your fill of good food (including this month's featured offer, Tri-Color Ravioli stuffed with truffle cream cheese and quail eggs), with live entertainment from Willy and Maely Ann San Juan--all in a classy hotel setting. Ladies also get a sweet gift and a glass of sparkling wine to cap off the evening. All these for only Php 1,200 nett.

A suit it technically is not but yes, the blazer and pants are a perfect match. Like that time when I looked like I was attending a summer wedding when in fact I was actually at work--I mean, seriously, it looked like the perfect summer wedding outfit--I got the blazer first and just chanced upon the pants in the same store months later.

I suddenly had this craving for Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory cookies. We first chanced upon their pop-up store at Greenbelt 5 late last year and instantly fell in love. The cookies--buttery soft with a light crunch and a rich and creamy filling sandwiched in between--are pure heaven. They remind me of a similar product from Pablo months prior.
