A Sweet Little Prince 1st Birthday Party at Stacy’s

Our little sweet pea, Benedict, celebrated his 1st birthday last February and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Finally, I’m sharing today his Little Prince themed celebration held at Stacy’s Capitol branch as beautifully captured by Jess Panajon. The girls from Stacy’s were the sweetest and they gave me a superb, hassle-free service as they took each and every little detail I specified — up to the gold stars confetti I […]

Happy Birthday, Baby

“Hi, baby. Hi, Benedict!” Those were my first words to you last year. Yes. Last year. How fast time flies, huh. That cliche never mattered to me before until now. Every night, I kiss you good night, whisper I love you and listen to your peaceful breathing — for one whole year now. I didn’t even notice. Everyday I look at you with new eyes, and seeing you grow up […]

Of Dreams, Sparkles and Why I Started This Blog

I have always been a late bloomer at everything. Well okay, just mostly. It was like being trapped into a different dimension when the rest of my co-age-brackets were doing what our-age-bracket should be doing. Take that instance when everybody else in high school were so into TV shows like F.R.I.E.N.D.S (this, I’ve watched when I was working already) and Dawson’s Creek, while I was still into those cartoons they […]

I Dreamed A Dream

I believe in this one simple truth: Every bride deserves her own magical wedding. My love-affair for all things wedding-pretty started last year when I got engaged to my now-husband. We dreamed of a wedding that was laid-back and personal, with touches of rustic vintage details and splashes of shades of pink and green. To get varied inspirations, I joined the Pinterest community and got exposed to all things wedding-lovely. […]
