holiday delights at Bonne Bouche (a.k.a. my comeback post!)

Wow, I'm not used to this anymore. I suppose it's too soon to declare that I've fully returned from my blogging hiatus, but I've neglected this thing for far too long, and, as much as I hate to admit, I'm starting to miss it. And so, I've decided to crawl out from under my rock for a bit and spam you lot some photos from a little modelling stint I did for work. 

One reason why I haven't been on here lately is because, apart from school, I've been busy with my new work. A few months ago, I got lucky and was offered the position as stylist for Bonne Bouche, a designer boutique that proudly houses elegant and seasonless pieces from local female designers Michi Calica (apparel), Elena Bautista (jewelry), Lupe Saenz (shoes), and Nicole Sheker (bags). As part of our online marketing campaign, I got to style and model a few pieces from the latest collection!

I'm incredibly blessed to have been given this small but wonderful opportunity. I'm surrounded by the most refined and down-to-earth group of women I've ever met, and it's such a previlege to work with them. It's kind of unreal how this just fell on my lap. I know I have much to learn, and I'll be making even more mistakes. But simply being around successful yet genuinely humble people really inspire me to continue working on my own dreams and remind me to stay grounded at the same time. I hope I do well.

All items are available at Bonne Bouche, located at the 2nd level of Greenbelt 5. For inquiries and updates, check out the Facebook page (
