Today's casual look on the blog features this paisley print crop top from Stiles Clothing and this bucket bag from Shop Georgine in metallic white.

It's a light and easy monochromatic outfit that I put together for a Sunday family lunch and mini reunion with visiting relatives from the US.

Coming in the wake of Typhoon Mario, which left Metro Manila and most of central and northern Luzon drenched and under water for most of Friday and Saturday, it was nice to see the sun finally out just in time for the little family gathering.

Love that I got this cool hat from Nicco just in time for the shoot since  - along with the bag - it kind of brings these mix and match items together, doesn't it?

Outfit details: 
Sandals, ZARA

What do you think of this outfit?

Girl About Town for a #HealthierPH

As a fashion and lifestyle blogger for just over a year now, I'm humbled by the little strides I've made, and extremely overwhelmed and grateful for the love, support, and attention I've been getting from friends, readers, and business partners. It has inspired me not just to work harder and be better at what I do, but also think of ways to somehow pay it all forward.

I've always felt that whatever measure of success I'm experiencing is hollow unless I can be a medium for positive change and somehow make my own little humble contribution in making life just a tad bit better for people needing the love, care, and inspiration! My small informal team of three (read: my photog/bf, adviser/mom and me) have time and again discussed possible projects that can help particularly those who've never read my blog (and probably never will) let alone seen or held a computer or phone or any internet device. We've managed to go as far as brainstorming but endless events, deadlines, commitments, and other concerns have not allowed us to move further.

So it was indeed a happy, if fortuitous, turn of events when I got an invite to Unilab Foundation's Digital Media Night at Sentro 1771 where over a sumptuous dinner their officials announced to a select group of bloggers and social media influencers the launching of the #healthierPH Volunteer Portal.

Since most everyone who have the means to volunteer or make a difference are on the Internet nearly 24/7, Unilab Foundation, figured what better way to encourage volunteerism than by creating a digital platform to make it possible for people to "contribute in building a healthier nation wherever they are, whatever their circumstance."

With the Portal, volunteer work does not always have to involve doing physical work, or being physically present, or making financial contributions. It can be all that, but it can also be as simple as sharing a picture, spreading the word about a worthy cause, or clicking the like button.

There's a volunteer opportunity for everyone whatever age, gender, occupation, or status. Whether you are a gamer (Yes, volunteer by playing a game!), artist, student, photographer, writer, housewife, mother, or someone who just likes to take selfies, there's something you can do to help create a #healthierPH! 

Go check it out now! Register at and do your share in building a healthier Philippines! You'll see it does not take much to make a difference!
