Let's Play Dress Up!

As a curvy girl, I always get frustrated whenever I go to stores that offer RTW gowns. The size, fit and it costs a lot to splurge on a piece of clothing that I would wear for only one occasion. So when the people over at Gown for Rent invited me to their showroom to try a few of their pieces, I was both excited and nervous! Excited because I'll be playing dress up and nervous because I might have a hard time finding the right gown that will perfectly fit my size and body shape. So off I went to their showroom and boy I was overwhelmed with the number of gowns they have in store! All their gowns are all made...

Postcards From Japan

A week ago my family and I went on a crazy and epic adventure in Japan. If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook then you have an idea that it was nerve wracking for me since it involved... KIDS!!! Haha! Seriously, I've never been more sure of my decision of not having kids right after this trip. LOL!  It's my third time in Japan and I only got to fall in love with this country during my recent trip with the fam. I never realized that there are a lot of hidden gems in this place. This might be one of my favorite countries to live in next to Hong Kong!

Outside Seoul!

My body is in Manila but my mind is still in Seoul. Posting one of the highlights from my trip all thanks to my grandfather's good friend for making this possible. Abogi, which means "father" in Korean, took us to Seoungnam city to get a scrumptous meal.

We settled inside a small Hanok and the staff started to knock and deliver tons of food! The place was peaceful and is located near a mountain and a river (it was still frozen when we got there!). It was quite an interesting feat! I hope I'll be able...

March 2018 Chami Approved Faves!

Aaaand just like that it’s already March o wait, it'll be April soon! Time for another set of my favorites! So for this month, it’s none other than the  #chamiapproved project with Decor Me Happy's Elle Uy! A little backstory about this unit is that I had it initially renovated and redesigned by Ella (don't confuse it with Elle but they have almost identical names lol!) and after a few years I just accumulated so much stuff that I needed more storage space to hide my clutter. It took me almost a year hiding in this cluttered space of mine that was one reason why I stopped inviting guests over. I can't even invite my family because we just couldn't fit in...
