Weeee! Connor’s turtle dove and mommy’s newly-acquired zebra. Worked with my little one yesterday and he was in the mood to wear matching shoes with mom! Who says you can’t do twinning when you have a son?
I actually bought several pairs of shoes which has a version for children. As for clothes, I am only limited to tops. I remember when Connor was still a baby I bought us matching denim long sleeves.
Since I always wear black I can’t always match our clothes. Thus, I make up with the shoes or shades.
Here’s a list of some items you might want to buy to enjoy twinning with your little man.
Yeezy boost 350- although toddler’s design only comes in turtle dove and black pirate.
Gucci ace sneakers came up with a version for our little ones!
clothes and shirts from Dolce and Gabbana
Hermes constance belt.- I ordered size 60 and he has 2 of this. Acquired them in Japan and he’s been using it since he was 5 months old. hehehe
There you have it, you might want to consider getting these too so you can start twinning with your little boys in a subtle way.
My love affair with hip hop and RnB began in Middle School.
It was Jay Z who first caught my fancy. I was then introduced to Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Snoop D-o-g-g, P. Diddy, Eminem and a whole lot more. I can go on and on and this entry won’t even end. hehehe.
I can clearly remember every song from those years that became my favorites.
Snoop’s Vato, Mary J Blige’s Be without you, Lil Wayne’s how to love, Jay Z and Kanye’s Watch the throne Album-yes all of it. Trey Songz’ heart attack, to great and unexpected collaborations like Beach chair from Jay Z and Chris Martin, Bey and Jay’s Hollywood, Lift off, ughhhh. My ultimate idol in the industry.
I remember singing to almost every song Bey and Jay would release.
I’d like to share with you at least five of my favorite jams of all time. I’ll do it random;y as it would be extremely hard for me to choose my top favorites.
> Let me start with beach chair- part of Jay Z’s Kingdom Come album
I can’t seem to get hold of a decent link to share the song with you. So let me just share a part of the lyrics.
Benzes round corners where the sun don’t shine
I let the wheels give a glimpse of hope of one’s grind
Some said: “Hov, how you get so fly?”
I said: “from not being afraid to fall out the sky”
My physical’s a shell so when I say farewell
My soul will find an even higher plane to dwell
So have no fear, just know that
Life is but a beach chair
I made it (cash money heroes) Kevin Rudolf feat. Lil Wayne, Birdman, Jay Sean
My favorite lines:
I look up to the sky
and now the World is mine
Ive known it all my life
I made it, I made it!
I used to dream about, the life Im living now
I know that theres no doubt.
I made it, I made it!
> Live your Life – T.I feat Rihanna
My favorite verses:
“Hey, never mind what haters say
Ignore ’em ’til they fade away”
“I’m the opposite of moderate
Immaculately polished with
The spirit of a hustler
And the swagger of a college kid
Allergic to the counterfeit
Impartial to the politics
But still’ll grab a nigga by the collar quick
Whoever havin’ problems”
“You’re gonna be, a shinin’ star
In fancy clothes, and fancy cars
And then you’ll see, you’re gonna go far
‘Cause everyone knows, just who ya are
So live your life (Hey! Ay ay ay)
You steady chasin’ that paper, just live your life
(Oh! Ay ay ay)
Ain’t got no time for no haters, just live your life
(Hey! Ay ay ay)
No tellin’ where it’ll take ya, just live your life
(Oh! Ay ay ay)
‘Cause I’m a paper chaser, just livin’ my life
(Ay) my life (Oh) My life (Ay) my life (Oh)
Just livin’ my life (Ay) my life (Oh)
My life (Ay) my life (Oh)”
> Welcome to Hollywood by Beyonce feat Jay Z
I can’t seem to find the original mtv of this one so here’s the link of the lyrics I founf on youtube
> Mirror – Lil Wayne feat Bruno Mars
“With everything happening today
You don’t know whether you’re coming or going
But you think that you’re on your way
Life lined up on the mirror don’t blow it, woo.
Look at me when I’m talking to you
You looking at me but I’m looking through you
I see the blood in your eyes
I see the love in disguise
I see the pain hidden in your pride
I see you’re not satisfied
And I don’t see nobody else
I see myself I’m looking at the…”
> Drop the World- Lil Wayne feat Eminem
LOL I know I’m such a heavy hip hop fan. Don’t get me wrong though, I appreciate music in all forms, just that since I’m all girly, this is the only aspect of my being where I can be like a man. 😀
Back in 2008 when I graduated, I have this list of things I’d like to buy once I start getting a good job and earning on my own.
Fast forward to 2017, I still have this endless list of what I want to have. Most of the things I listed down before I have actually acquired because of my hard work. So there goes the question, what else do you desire to buy this year?
Oh my God, it’s endless! to cut it short though, will cite my top 5 as per usual nyehehe
5. Hublot bigbang
I know for a fact that it doesn’t hold its value. Nevertheless it looks cool to me, thus I want one! nyehehehe.
4. VCA 10 motif alhambra necklace 10 motif and Magic alhambra

I’d like to finally share to you the skincare products I can swear by. Since the inquirer/preen article, my acquaintances would often tease me about my being a LaMer baby.
Honestly, I have very sensitive skin. Too sensitive that event top and well known derma clinics can’t handle. One wrong medicine and I’m all red and have to meet my allergist. Anyhow, ever since I started the La Mer regimen, I only have good reviews to write.
It all started with the creme de La Mer.
The soft luxurious moisturizer leaves my face extremely soft and smooth. I can run through my fingers and feel like it’s flawless. hehehehhe
So I collected all of them. I’m not certain if I mentioned that I have an addictive type of personality. Haha! In a GOOD way though!! When it comes to the best products and shopping items, I need to have it. Must’ve inherited my Papa’s genes,eh?
My routine is simple. I begin with the facial wash, alternating the refining facial cleanser every 2-3 days. Since the beads may cause my skin to slough off frequently which I don’t like, and also not advisable.
Then, I use the oil absorbing tonic next followed by the treatment lotion.
The soft creme follows and then the La Mer concentrate which helps diminish spots or stops breakouts. It also helps in lightening black spots.
I layer it with the brilliance serum and regenerating serum and use my eye creams altogether. hehehe
The eye concentrate, the eye balm intense and the illuminating eye gel. If you’ve already met me you’ll know that my eyes are very deep set because of my mix blood.
It doesn’t end there though. hehehe
I use my favorite gennaisance serum- this is my holy grail.
This one is used to help you become pore-less. (Of course feeling ko no pores ako, pagbigyan it’s my blog, okay? Okay.
Finally, I use my perfecting creme. This leaves my face rosy. hehe
Before going to bed I use my lotion and body creme alternatively and my lip balm for my lips to prevent it from drying.
PS. I also use the body refiner for bath and the sun screen.
PPS. For travel, I use my regenerating travel kit and moisturizing soft lotion. Sometimes, I also bring the renewal oil along. If I remember hahaha.
There you go. Hope you try it out soon and feel the difference! 🙂 What about you? Care to share your beauty must-haves too?

I have received a couple of messages asking me to blog about my top 5 favorite shoes. Those that I can’t live without. Be it for work, a night out, a special event or a casual stroll.
Another reader also suggested to write about my top 5 restaurants.
So I decided to make an archive of all my top 5s beginning today. So you can expect some food places, countries to travel to, brands of clothes, favorite clothes, bags, and the list goes on. As long as it could be ranked and I am fond of it, I can include and write about it.
As my first installment, I will feature top 5 shoes that I really love and can consider as must-haves.
In reality, I am more of a shoe addict. Even before I started loving bags. I was already crazy for shoes. In school, mom knows that I need to have at least 4-5 pairs of school shoes that I can interchange with every so often. hehehe
All my closest friends can attest to the fact that I never liked rubber shoes/sneakers until very recently. (Got hooked with NMDs) I only had a crush on yeezy’s. I like Kanye’s music ever since I was in college so it goes without saying that I’d definitely support his shoe line as well. HEHEHE.
4. Christian Louboutin Cataclou in high and low heels.
I usually wear the lows when I’m with Connor or if I have a quick meeting with my lawyer or random interviews.
The highs serves their purpose when I’m attending a birthday party where I want to wear heels and yet still want to look casual.
3. Hermès oran
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I am always out and walking. Thus, my footwear must be comfortable. Of course I also choose the designs that are pretty. So comfort and vanity comes hand in hand so to speak. The Hermes oran is inarguably one of those that falls under this category.
Among my humble collection, this by far is my favorite. I love how sparkly and pretty it looks.
2. Manolo Blahnik hangisi flats
On meet ups or important appointments, I usually wear a pair from my little hangisi flat collection. I can’t choose my favorite pair so let me share some of my flats. I love how comfy and more business-like this shoe looks like. Yet not too formal at the same time. Perfect for daytime events and small night gatherings when you have no extra pair in tow. It can typically be your day to night shoes.
1. My top 1 is still Manolos but in 105mm.
My high heels usually comes out for formal occasions or special events. For shoots as well. hehehe. I choose the color nude as my fave and must have since it pretty much goes with anything or any color of your outfit.
Plus, a little trivia on why this is my favorite: This was Marian’s birthday gift to me last year. So it also holds a sentimental value.
That’s about it. Hope you enjoyed my first top 5 post! Til next!
