Dear Hair,

We have had a lovely journey together in the past year, but it's time for change.

Til we meet again.

PS. My apologies for the blogging scarcity, I shall not stress about what consumes my time however I am extremely extremely excited to share that work takes me to Paris next week! No blogging for a little bit, but will most definitely over-post my usual random nothings on Instagram. Ahh and hopefully with a successful new 'do.

Love lots, black soul xxxxxxx

A couple weeks ago, a very awesome David Milan, asked me to be a part of a fashion shoot for The Philippine Star's YStyle section. I didn't know what it was about, but it sounded fun. All he said was that they were doing a one layout portrait shoot and a 15 second clip for the editorial (sharing the behind the scenes vid at the bottom) and finally, to dress as yourself magnified x10.

I got there early and during that time saw familiar faces of whose styles I really looked up to. To name a couple-- there was style icon-model-turned-photographer Joan Bitangcol (who was in and out of the shoot while I was still in make-up) wearing mostly Margiela (of course), and Daryl Chang, Preview Magazine's Fashion Editor, who was wearing a stunning Balenciaga coat. Bumped into Mano Lotho, our press-boss at work, and took some photos while waiting my turn for the shoot; he was wearing mostly Raf Simons. I was definitely on a fashion high and couldn't (still can't) believe I was on the same shoot as the ladies in the editorial.

The 31st of January finally came and so did the YStyle piece. It was a celebration of the new YStyle; new collaborations, a new section, a very sophisticated brand new logo, and we were the #GirlsGoneYStyle. All mind-bogglingly exciting! Thank you David, Cai and Carla for giving me a little part of the intro!
