SM Stationery Art Fest 2018 at SM Makati

Kids these days are so lucky. I feel like I've said this a thousand times but we just never had this much options when it comes to paper, pen and art supplies back in the day. Sometimes, we'd even have to rely on "pasalubongs" from family and friends who visit abroad....

10 Tips on Social Media and Content Creation: Blogopolis 2018

I can remember the first time the hubby and I were asked to speak in front of so many people and the introvert in me was anxious. But at the same time, I didn’t want to pass up on the opportunity to share my insights and learnings with fellow creatives and...

Flatlay 101 + Arts & Crafts Workshop with Canon Printers

We’ve had a series of free arts and crafts workshops and design talks with Canon Printers over the past year. While I’ve shared snippets throughout my social channels, a good number of you who couldn’t come (either because of time or location constraints) wanted to...

Easter Crafts and Treats Workshop with S Maison Conrad

We had quite the sweet and egg-citing Easter weekend filled with all things candy and color at S Maison Conrad Manila as we held an Easter crafts and treats workshop earlier this month! I've always wanted to explore colors with food to the point that I even bought...

At the Heart of Ayala Cloverleaf

We're grateful for the opportunity to spread our love for colors as we painted our third heart and this time for Ayala Malls Cloverleaf! I can clearly remember our first heart in Serendra. (Read about it here.) It was just seven weeks after I gave birth to Riley! I...

The Dessert Museum

When I was 8, I would always wish it would rain chocolates. I didn't realize it would (sort of) come true now that I'm an adult and let me tell you, I think I'm even more excited about it now than I was then! One day, we received a "pink ticket" in our mail. (Yes...

Watercolor and Art Workshop with H&M Kids

I recently had the chance to revisit my childhood: all those years spent tinkering with paper during siesta time, playing teacher and volunteering for bulletin boards all rolled into one as we got to create a backdrop and conduct a watercolor and crafts workshop for...

7 Home and Lifestyle Pieces We Love from Design Story

Form and function are two things that should but don’t always go together so it’s a treat every time I come across furniture and home accessories that celebrate both. There’s something so attractive and interesting when a piece is so useful and yet can be classified...

DIY Chalkboard and Craft Organizer

Our house is mostly filled with arts and crafts supplies, paper of various kinds, books, food (chocolates!) and Riley’s toys. As much as these are all fun and tasty, it can be a bit overwhelming at times. I also happen to have moments where my OC-ness kicks in and I...

Thoughtful Presents and Valentine’s Day

They say that presents are a two-way street. They’re an experience for both giver and receiver. As much as receiving them sounds fun, giving them is just as much if not more. But more than the item itself, it’s the thought that counts. Or the effort. I know this...

How to Draw Dogs

Hello Guys! 🙂 How are you? I'm writing this blog from a wake park with a view of the sunset from the mountains. *Looks again.* *Oh great. The sun has disappeared. Woops!* I'm accompanying the hubby as he works. I did the drawings for these worksheets several weeks...

It's 11:33pm and I'm actually supposed to begin working on a new project due next week but I just can't seem to bring myself to do so until I've written all everything down about the past week.  I'm currently sitting down on our couch with thoughts brimming in my head...

Being Inspired Versus Copying

This was supposed to be my post the other day but Ponggo told me that it was too frank and that I'm just begging for unsolicited reactions.  This time, it's not even about my work.  Sure, I've seen so many headless Googly comics online (i.e. comics shared and...

A Taste of Life This is dedicated to our good friend Aina who wrote "I can almost taste the weekend" on her status last Thursday to which I responded, "Really? How does it taste like?".  Thank you for your patience when I take everything too literally.  Thank you too...

Have a Summer to Remember with Rustan’s

One of my first few jobs after graduating was in Sales, Marketing and Trade Marketing.  As much as it probably means supermarket or mall hopping on the outside or driving all day, it also meant doing things such as: 1. visiting supermarkets via the back door entrance...

At the Heart of Serendra

Last Valentine's Day, we were tasked to paint a huge heart in the middle of Serendra.  Halfway through, here's one of the sides with a bit of splatter.  It reminded me of the chocolate drizzle I would see on desserts.  To me, it looks like one giant candy heart. :)...

5 Stages of Anger

The other day, I was busy fixing some quirks on this website.  It felt like such a chore.  It required me to visit most of our old posts. Anyway, as usual, I'd easily get lost and distracted and I would start reading older entries.  Some would make me cringe I want to...

Masungi: Lessons I Learned from Making a Storybook

Hello Guys! 😀 How's your week so far? I've been wanting to post this but I just made sure that I'm done with my deliverables so I ended up writing down notes on my sketch book one night just right after finishing a few pages.  The notes here are dated January 3, 2017...

Design Dept & Team Manila Studio Tour

I've been wondering why I'm into making videos lately.  Then, I realized that our blog, my supposed side project of so many years has now become my full-time work.  So, in the spirit of story-telling that started this all, I am back to being constantly looking out for...

Messed Up Body Clock

Messed Up Body Clock

These days, when I'm stressed,  I no longer feel the full effect of it.  On certain days, I'll end up oversleeping which means my body is begging for more rest time because I'm about to sleep and at other times, when I'm so anxious about certain things, I end up...

Golden Rules of Stalking + Paris Photo Diary

I'm so bad, it was the Googly Gooeys' 6th birthday yesterday but I haven't written about it. I have my draft but I don't feel like it's time to upload it yet so instead of coming up with something half-baked, I'd rather write about something else instead. 😉 *Yeah,...
