You guys are the sweetest. Such high hopes for me. When I said I was excited about something, your guesses were out of this world. I hope the real announcement isn’t anti-climactic.
UZ International Edition — I wish but I was never given budget to do so. The only times I filmed abroad were on my own trips. This is the house of Ridwan Kamil, an Indonesian Architect. The house is framed with a brise-soleil made of thousands of redbull bottles. Well, UZ is on a break now…
Clothing line? — Haven’t found the right situation for that yet. Eons ago I made kimono tops for babies and toddlers. Sold them at a bazaar. They did well but I didn’t have the courage to pursue it more than that.
So the excitement is not about any entrepreneurial projects nor is it about travel. I’m just really pleased that my site is now a partner of Anthropologie. It is one of my favourite stores in North America. That place is just full of inspiration. It’s like surfing Pinterest in 3D, you see all the beautiful products in one house. Everything is just so pretty. So having Anthropologie as one of my site sponsors is huge for me.
There is a famine of beautiful rugs in this country. Until there’s a Daphne® Rugs and Carpets (universe, please hear me), let’s all try to find out how we can get this beautiful Gloria’s Garden Rug shipped over here.
I am so into lace and anything textured. K&Company’s current collection is all about lace. I haven’t seen anything like this locally though. Reminds me of the dresses my mom made for me when I was a child. Hand-Crocheted Mini-Dress.
How adorable are these Izmir Measuring Cups?
This photo actually looks like it was taken in our home. This Patrizia Sofa is perfect – not too pretty or feminine.
My girls adore Alice in Wonderland. So do I. I think we NEED this. One Lump or Two .
Every now and then I’ll be highlighting some products that I love and I’m sure you’ll love them too. Watch out for some possible promos too. The clothing and shoes are irresistible. You will be tempted.
Readers in the US and Canada have it easy with online shopping. I’m sure you’re all used to it by now. Readers in the Philippines may have issues with customs duties because based on my experience locally, couriers and the post office like to randomly guess and most often mark-up the duties and charges. I don’t really have a solution for that except if you find yourself being unfairly billed for customs duties, get all the names of the people involved and email Ruffy Biazon, the Customs Commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want something hassle-free then go with a third-party shipper like Johnny Air Cargo or any other balikbayan box service.
