Iconic Shelf Update | Simply Modular


A few months back, I assembled the really cool shelving system pictured above. I knew that I wanted something low maintenance, easy to move around but still scoring high in terms of style and design. Simply Modular is such a convenient and ingenious way of storing your things, as well showcasing them. Honestly I’ve learned to appreciate my stuff, now that I can actually see them organized and not hidden away in a drawer or closet. So here is my shelf update, I’ve moved a couple of things around if you notice (like the plants and finally hung an artwork) …

Privacy and Security | Golfhill Gardens


Living in Manila is great, there’s always something to do and there’s always something going on. Be it the latest concert, newest fitness trend to try out, check out the hottest restaurant nearby, or find the latest styles in retail stores. Being in the metro is definitely an experience in and of itself, I’ve always lived in Manila and a stones throw away from my school, hospital and so on.

Hacksaw Ridge | Sola Fide


If you were to watch one film this year, I would say it should be the Oscar Award Nominee for Best Picture Hacksaw Ridge.

Andrew Garfield plays Desmond Doss, a US Army medic awarded Medal of Honor …

The Fade Trend | Head&Shoulders


I’ve always had the usual long in front hairstyle, a little longer in the sides too for some balance. Never really had a name for it, just asked my barber to clean it up and give some style and shape. This time around though I asked for something different, I recently saw the “Fade” hairstyle on “OFF THE PAGES” (https://www.youtube.com/offthepagesphilippines) and the particular style has become increasingly trendy and I thought I’d give it a go -with my personal spin on it of course. Still a little bit of length in the front (some habits are harder to break than …

Touted as the best selfie phone, the Vivo V5 Plus boasts dual front-facing cameras: a 20MP (Sony IMX376 sensor with f/2.0 aperture) + 8MP combo. On the software side, Vivo’s “Moonlight Glow” flash which highlights your face and the “Bokeh” effect which blurs the background to bring emphasis to the subject (ie: you!) was also demonstrated by the numerous male and female models taking -you guessed it, selfies. The Vivo V5 Plus features a 5.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of …
