The right shoes for the (wannabe) hipster in you

Yes, I haven’t gotten over my current hipster obsession. They of the wide, black-rimmed glasses, of the corduroy and gentleman’s hat, of the emo, counter-culture persuasion. So intriguing and different. Well, in my part of the world it’s still different — since my fellow Pinoy yuppies are still stuck in the Valley Girl and Cutie-Kawaii-Kpop…

Shoe in Love!

Remember when I was obsessed with my old Rockport lace-ups? My love for that particular pair was so intense that I went on and on on how comfortable and versatile it was. Unfortunately, that particular pair of shoes is just so comfy and nice that I continued to miss it even if I get to…

Schu Shangri-La crazy shoe sale!

…now try saying that five times. Crazy because that’s exactly how you will be once you see the wide array of shoes all going for just PHP799 or less! This is how the story goes. I am SUPPOSED to go home, after an early dinner with The Dead Poets Society (aka The Bad Seeds of…

Another great shoe find

Every once in a while, I chance upon a pair of shoes that I immediately fall in love with. Case in point: the Rockport boots which I abused repeatedly until it became a sorry piece of footwear with frayed threads that I had no choice but to give up, and Faded Glory flats which I…

My little kitty knows her priorities…

When my pet cat got pregnant and gave birth to three kittens two months ago, we knew that we had to let go of the kittens since our house cannot accommodate any other addition to our growing roster of feline friends. Currently, we have 4 cats– the girls: Sayuri, Yumi and Niro-chan, and the only…

After almost a week of sulking and being annoyed by things I can never change, I decided to throw the towel and just let it be. I mean, obviously I would need to keep the job since it’s something that I seriously love doing and the company where I work is top-notch and one of…

When the going gets tough — the tough goes on RETAIL THERAPY!

The same thing I did when things got too crazy for me at the office one hot Friday afternoon. Without going into details (*BLOGGING POLICY ALERT!*), let’s just say Friday was the time that all the pressure, annoyance and fatigue sent in and led me to an unmistakable need for some serious alone time. So,…

Seeing things from another perspective

Life has a way of giving you funny and endearing little surprises — and in the end, it’s really up to you to keep up. I am currently trapped in a whirlwind of pleasant surprises, ground breaking challenges, realizations and little blessings. Sometimes, I find it hard to keep up, but it’s the little blessings…

Heaven is a gray-colored shoebox

Somewhere in Heaven, the Shoe Gods might have looked in their mirror and accidentally saw me traipsing in my boots and decided to smile on me. Because one day, this arrived in the mail: Of course, I couldn’t resist taking a peak and this is what I saw: TADA-AAAAAAH!!! Quite honestly, I never owned something…
