Safron and Paprika

  • Outfit inspired by the Louis Vuitton Kalahari GM and PM bags pictured above. Though I noticed that most of the current fave items in my closet lean to mustard tones, I new these particular styles just aren't my "thing"- I still prefer their classic pieces. And just because these bags were in my thoughts for more that 24 hours, I decided to build my outfit around the concept and colors.
  • Wore a my mustard dress and paired it with patent purple leather ware to channel the African vibe!

  • My week was packed with work and non-work stuff yet again, and am bracing myself for another jam-packed weekend... I need to "reward" myself for conceptualizing and finishing the prototype application which our team will be using - ALONE (yes, I was and will always be a geek heehee) before turning it over to US-IT for fine-tuning. And for working for 3.5 hours (straight) on a customer's check requests -- I didn't even have the time to drink water... my lips were as dry as the Sahara desert by the time I was done! But yeah accomplishing something is worth being overly grateful for!

  • Speaking of gratitude, I would also like to THANK YOU! My dear blogger friends for all the warm comments.. they really make my day! I'm surprised that despite the low number of new posts I have (I promise to take time post more! I really will!) -- you all are still reading!! And that alone makes my heart flutter with so much joy! You should see the smile on my face whenever I view my site stats:
  • I'm wishing all you lovelies a great weekend!!!!

  • I’ve been very busy all weekend, was out of the house everyday but had almost no time to take outfit shots…My childhood friend is back from the US and will be staying for a short vacation and I feel guilty for not having ample time to spend with her… but I promise to make use of all the free time there is!
  • Took my Topshop blazer (marking it's first year with me soon!) for a spin, paired with white shorts and a white tank for added lightness… I noticed it has started getting warm here in the islands…more reasons to thank heavens for Air-conditioning! Back to the outfit, I added some gold bangles, slipped into my stiletto platform heels which were the hit a few seasons back and then my trusty purse. It was a bad-hair day so I had to make-do with a pony – and ended up looking like my brother who incidentally is celebrating his Birthday today (Hugs and B-day wishes from Manila to L.A.!!)
  • Spotted mint green nail polish on the Chanel Fall fashion show... Me likey likey! Now I regret having passed-up on the mint Revlon laquer back in Hong Kong... I opted for the orange and purple sparklers and of course my ever trusty reds and berries...
