Black Market No. 2

8 Mar

“Let our rebel yell resonate. We are Blackmarket.”

The day we arrived in Singapore, Dante and I were excited to visit Blackmarket.  This will be the future home of 13 Lucky Monkey in Singapore.

It’s a super cool store that carries a lot of different brands from various designers in Southeast Asia and more 🙂

So chic and hip.  It’s the perfect boutique for the Lucky Monkeys!

We first found out about this boutique through our very good friend and super talented Filipino designer, Gian Romano.  I was one of the lucky ones because Gian designed my beautiful wedding gown.  I just had to share… Below is me wearing my Gian Roman gown. Memories… 🙂

This photo was taken for a wedding feature in Preview Magazine 🙂 Photographed by the very talented, Wawi Navarroza. Makeup by Jigs Mayuga and hair by Ney Guese, very dear friends of mine 🙂

Blackmarket sells accessories, bags, eyewear, shoes, books and other things I’ve never seen anywhere else 🙂

While exploring the store, I spotted this section and I knew right away this was Gian Romano’s collection 🙂

I was so happy to see a familiar name on the labels of these super cool and edgy tops and dresses! 🙂

To all our friends living in Singapore and to those who will be flying there anytime soon, be sure to visit Blackmarket No. 2 at #02-10 Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Road, Singapore 🙂

Also watch out for 13 Lucky Monkey! Coming soon! 🙂

Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto

20 Jan

I finally got myself a copy of “Before Ever After” 🙂  I met the wonderful Sam Sotto during a photo shoot that I did for Preview Magazine.  I did her makeup at National Bookstore in Power Plant, Rockwell.  And while Kissa Castaneda, the Lifestyle Editor of Preview Magazine, was interviewing her, I was so inspired by Sam.

Meet Samantha Sotto, author of the novel "Before Ever After". Being photographed by Pat Mateo 🙂

After its release in the US, it placed fourth on Amazon's Hot List

This is Sam’s very first novel.  She would take her son to school everyday and while waiting for him, she would be busy writing her novel in a Starbucks in Katipunan Avenue! 🙂 She used to be a brand manager in Unilever and now she’s a published author.  You are such a supermom, Sam, and an inspiration to all of us!  Anything is truly possible 🙂

With Kissa, Sam and Jerry

"Samantha Sotto fell in love with Europe's cobbled streets and damp castles as a teenager. Before Ever After was inspired by her experiences living, studying and traveling in Europe."

I cannot wait to start reading Sam’s novel.  I hope to see you again soon, Sam! Please sign my book! 🙂 Now off to begin Before Ever After… 🙂

Heima: Home and Lifestyle

9 Jan

Kissa from Preview Magazine booked me for hair and makeup for this photo shoot. It was a feature on the talented Rossy Yabut, interior designer and owner of Heima, a home and lifestyle store 🙂

Heima at LRI Design Center

Super cool totes 🙂

Rossy with partner Bong Rojales (President of Lomo Manila)

I so want this chair.

This is the one and only Jerry Javier, celebrity hairstylist, doing a little shopping 🙂 Look at those awesome bags by School of Satchel! 🙂

Me with Rossy 🙂 Love the bright lips on Rossy!

With the team! Photographs by Pat Mateo

You guys should definitely check Heima out for unique pieces for your home.  They now also carry paper products, vinyl records and has also become a space to promote independent designers such as School of Satchel.  This is one of the coolest stores I’ve ever been to.  Had so much fun looking at their unique stuff and kept wishing I could re-decorate our room, Heima style! Little by little 🙂

Chapeau Show

20 Dec

This photo shoot was one of my favorite shoots for the year 2011 🙂 It was Preview Magazine’s tribute to PMAP (Professional Models Association of the Philippines) on their 25th year called “Chapeau Show” (Chapeau is French for hat.) Photographed by the amazing, Pat Dy 🙂

I was assigned to do makeup on these three stunning ladies… Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, Girlie Benitez…

… and Phoemela Baranda. They all joined PMAP sometime in the year 2000 🙂

Phoem and Girlie getting ready for the shoot! 🙂 Aren’t they beautiful? 🙂

This shoot was a few weeks before Rissa’s Wedding 🙂 I could just imagine how radiant she looked on her wedding! Congrats, Rissa! 🙂 Loved the soft, furry coat 🙂

I was sooo happy to see my dear friend, Jigs Mayuga, the Great 🙂 You’re soooo thin. I’m so jealous. Missed you, Mads!!!

And here’s the super talented Ogie Rayel from Kiehl’s, who did the hairstyling for Phoem, Rissa and Girlie 🙂

Another person I love working with is Sidney Yap. He was our fabulous stylist for this shoot 🙂

The look for makeup was smokey gold eyelids 🙂

Here is the spread that came out in Preview Magazine September 2011 issue 🙂
