I know, I know. Been MIA for 2 days and even my mom’s bugging me to write a new entry. (Stage mom sya hehe). I had 2 celebrations for this year. 1 was my salubong with my closest friends and tonight I had dinner with my family and the kuris.
Yan Yan even surprised me with her presence when she told me she’s still in her Mcdonald’s event! I felt really loved and appreciated because she made time for me out of her extremely busy schedule. I love her to bits! She never fails to remember and she knows how to pull off a surprise perfectly!!
I will post the photos and get into detail about it tomorrow as our dinner just commenced. hehe! I had a great time and more than the material gifts, the gift of family and friendship are the most important ones I have received.
After the party, I will now work on a charity project with my friends and celebrity clients (friends as well) as my way of giving back to the less fortunate. God helped me and gave me a chance to be a vessel in helping them so I will make use of it and make sure that I do my part in fulfilling my duty as His steward.
My cup is always being filled and I’d like to share the abundance to others in every way possible.
Promise to write about all these by tomorrow! Thank you for all your messages and for allowing me to have a celebration. Ang taray! May ganon. HAHA!
Thank you. Thank you.
Love and prayers to everyone.

As everyone knows, it was primetime queen Marian Rivera who gave me the biggest break in my career.
I only have good things to say about her. Really! What’s not to love? She’s a goddess. Her beauty radiates from the inside.
‘How does it feel like shopping for such a big star?’
The pressure was present of course. Then again having been friends with Yan made it easier for me, because the pressure was instead replaced by excitement to score whatever the latest pieces are. My Yan knows exactly what she wants, she knows which would perfectly suit her style and which would complement and enhance her assets.
She is always up to date and I would always be on the look out. It worked perfectly that way.
Her closet is what every girl could ever wish for. Her bags? Would make one green with envy. Her shoes? Aplenty.
Amongst my favorites from her collection are:
Ralph and Russo
Dolce and Gabbana
and Lana Marks as of late. (which I will blog about in the next days)
You see, not only is she up-to-date, rather, she has the eye for anything classic and timeless. She has a penchant for all things beautiful. Her rule of the thumb? Look neat, clean and stay fresh.
She is an epitome of beauty and shopping for her is not only fun but is a great privilege.
Does any of you remember how Arunaseth made it big in Manila? During the time Marian was pregnant, she made sure that even in flats, she would look stylish and would stand out without compromising her comfort.
She fell in love with the trademark butterfly design of the brand. I found a pair in her size and made everything I can to have it delivered in 24 hours. Yup in 24 hours or less. The following day, it was right at her doorstep. The gorgeous preggy was so happy!
Manolo Blahnik flats were her signature footwear in the duration of her pregnancy. They looked classic and chic that she can dress it up on special events, or pair it with jeans on regular days. She was also the first to carry the hot pink hangisi clutch. I made sure she would get the exact color to match her shoes.
Dolce and gabbana espadrilles were fun and luxurious at the same time which fits her perfectly. She owns a couple of pairs for her casual strolls to use.
Roger Vivier strass chips and slip ons were also among her favorites.
It was Ralph and Russo which was quite a challenge to get hold of. The haute couture house was only by schedule that time. When I was able to get in touch with one of them, I immediately informed Yan and she was grinning from ear to ear.
We ordered her first few pairs of shoes and my designated stylist was taken aback since its not everyday that a Filipino client would order.
This Ralph and Russo Lavender clutch is limited edition. If my memory serves me right, only a hundred pieces or less were produced and she is one of the very few who owns one.
We started collecting new pairs of high heels after she gave birth.
Her pink Oscar dela Renta embellished heels are to die for!
She is a fashion icon and designers from around the globe are noticing her and have been wanting to dress her up or work with her. Simply put, Marian has a Midas touch. Whatever she wears, expect it to be off the shelves in no time.
Yes magazine even had a feature on her collection of bags and shoes. Man, I tell you. Seeing the things I shopped for her on those pages made me feel like I was there too! ha ha!
All these are documented on @marian_ootd, her online fashion diary (managed by a fan).
See? It’s as exciting as it gets! That’s how it is to shop for a queen. I am forever grateful to be trusted with such task. 😉
