It’s a given statement that, once upon a time, I really dreamed of studying at iAcademy when I first stepped here in the metro after graduation. My 1st goal was to be a Graphic designer, I did tried, unfortunately, there where better offers so I need to kiss that dream goodbye and embraced the Marketer in me. If you’d notice my original blog in tumblr was patterned on a magazine and I really love working on it until #AdultLife happen to be a priority.
Woke up extra early this morning (when I was writing this post), though today’s going to be really toxic, but the moment I glanced at a particular area where I incorporated some practices during Cat Arambulo x Moodboard Manila‘s Interior Design workshop. I felt it’s best to share some of my learning.
So the Valentines fever isnt over! As Google Philippines hosted another creative way to use (no bias) the most efficient Video Calling App to find both Vloggers, Daniel Marsh and the latest Youtube Sensation, PBB Housemate, “Baninay Bautista” A DATE! as in someone-you-go-out-with-to-get-to-know 😀 Before anything else, it was on the night of Feb 21. We were invited to go out for a Dating Night with a twist, obviously by using Google Duo . From there I got a hint that something strange will happen, yes! every google event really scares me, sometimes it looks so simple but, sigh, it’s just something you just cant underestimate. So, I brought with me a sacrificial lamb, hahahah!!! I brought Chael, a Vlogger friend of mine, who I think is perfect for the task.
Few weeks ago, Penshoppe recently released its Summer 2017 collection along with the opening of its newest flagship store dubbed as—Penshoppe Capital. The collection features a myriad of stylishly trendy pieces that are not only affordable, but keeps you stylishly suitable for Philippine weather, yet as always takes cue from global fashion trends. On the same day, we had an impromptu shopping spree at the same branch. I went on a panic since most of the items are new and not of those that I was eyeing days before the actual shopping. Join me as I list down some of my lessons. KEEP CALM AND GO SUMMER READY With Globe Wanderland happening this weekend, My picks has to be inspired by the free spirit of music and arts festivals. Good thing I found a handful of neutrals and mutable colors to incorporate in my looks. The problem is, how to think of what to wear in an ocean of new items I am not familiar of??? Keep Calm Duane! hahahha So I look around and realized what were those …
How can it not be the most wonderful time of the year when Philippines’ biggest performer and crowed favorite couples hang out together? It was a fun night with Coca Cola #TagahatidPasko Concert at MOA Concert Grounds last Saturday Dec 3. It was also one of the most heart warming celebration for me as well. I thought it would be like one of those Concerts I’ve been to, with the usual blogger duties, photo here and there but it was a good day for me as I saw some of my friends in the industry and reminded me how this people behind the scene work hard to support other people’s dream. The hashtag it self is also a tear jerking one, #TagaHatidPasko who then is your Taga Hatid Pasko?
One rainy afternoon well spent with my Youtuber friends Lesha and Chael. It was the warmest Digital Content Creators event I’ve ever been! Energies exploding here and there, Hi, hello blah blah blah!!! Youtubers are so bubbly and very sociable! hahaha!!! They definitely share a different kind of strand compared to the other creatures you’ll find in the internet world. This is the first time Im stepping in Lesha and Chael’s community while they’re in their Youtuber mode. I was so surprise on how I got alienated in an amusing way. From the moment I stepped in the venue, both Lesha and Chael noticed me and I thought it would be our usual day but no! They, for some reason both my friends are in sync, “Hi Duane”, then I noticed something, I look down and had that “Oh-There-Is-It” face. I noticed they were pointing their cameras at me and it was clear that we are rolling! So This Is How You Talk To Youtubers As I got seated, I noticed the same mannerism with everyone, so I guess that’s normal. Youtubers …
People cant help but notice how my skin looks better in contrast years ago. I never knew I’d be talking about this now. Ever since, I usually preach “How Confidence Can Be A Game Changer” though, no matter how my confidence grow, there’s one thing it cant fix. —> Scars 🙁 My pimples were never the loner type, they prefer hanging out by groups of at least 3 and they were really clingy. As I’m getting use to having scars, thinking maybe my confidence would take other people’s attention away from my scars, sad reality, I cant keep it if it’s placed in the front row, more like pawns waiting to die but NO! it’s my self esteem that dies first before my scars.
It’s that season of the year where Coffee intake happens to spike way up the scale, and “Fourth Quarter Syndrome” is a mere excuse for some lavish Coffee break. In this quarter; you take in coffee products in various forms from Hot, Cold, Jelly and the likes, not just to keep you awake with all the deadlines but in a form of a wonderful affliction.

Mossimo Philippines unravel the newest face of street wear with pieces inspired by unconventional zest of Urban x Street fusion. Mossimo is up for a new capsule collection and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen from the brand before, namely Mossimo X. In my mind, it’s still the Mossimo California Laid back that always reminds me of Brent Javier. Yet with the Mossimo X, “The pieces are very dynamic, easy to wear, up-to date and versatile yet daring” as per John Lozano (Stylist Curator of Mossimo X). Well, I have to agree. During the launch of Mossimo X, I was at awe and wanting to immediately grab my own piece! Streetwear like these will effortlessly pump up the style in your look, killing your “what to wear vibe” to “Ooh I dont care what I’ll pair with this” coz it’s basically all made up to be stylish even whatever you pair on it.
