Sigh Styles: Pre-Birthday Shoot - The Little Princess in Red

I love giving gifts in the form of sharing my skills and the craft that I am trying my best to master.  One simplest yet coming-from-the-heart present is to give a pre-birthday photo shoot.  Last April, if you can remember HERE, I gave my friend a fashion make-over and with a conceptual photo shoot, only for her.  

This time, it's for the birthday of my loveliest niece.  She had turned five last August 3.  Her name is Mariah Arabella and she has graced this blog sometime last February, as seen HERE.  She's so fun to shoot as she modeled like a pro.  She followed the poses that I taught her and she even has her own interpretation which tripled the fun.

The is the first photo shoot after Sigh Styles turned 1.

A drama princess in-the-making.

She's bubbly and irresistible. 

She oozes with charm, and not to mention her wits!

That innocent look.

Her vibrant spirit and seemingly full-fledged adult behavior leads me to think she's accelerated her age quadruple times.

But looking at this picture, my heart is squeezed and I'm taken back to reality: 
sh'es still a  5-year old and just enjoying one of the fun moments of her life.

Hope you get inspired with this posting.  Why not give your special someone extraordinary presents on their most special day?

Are you interested to let me help you out in giving pre-birthday shoot for your nieces? or any relatives? Just email me at

A Dozen Unfiltered Reasons Why Bangkok,Thailand Is Always My Place To Be

People nowadays have abundant, diverse resources that traveling outside one's home country has been a typical option for holidays or even for a long-weekend vacation.  And if you are from the Philippines, the accessible places and, by fact, the more affordable options would be those destinations nearby such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.

Yes, Thailand! My second favorite country, of course, next to the Philippines.  The country has a massive land area. But with the four times that I have been there, most of my adventures were spent only in Bangkok. In spite of it, I know that there are still numerous places to explore in the city of Big Mango.
I have overflowing stories to share about my trips to Bangkok, with brimming enthusiasm.  I have had several detailed blog posts about my trips since 2011, 2013 and 2014.  Although this post and the pictures you will be seeing are #throwback shots, I hope to still provide you with an overview of what the city has to offer and be able to…

How To Be Comfy Yet Chic to a Winter Vacation in Hong Kong

I always desire to have a winter vacation in Hong Kong.  Though, I actually have experienced it last 2013 with my family, see HERE,  but such desire never ceases and is always haunting me. Whenever December arrives, the hopes reach its acme. Thankfully,  January of this year, my wishful thinking and flaming desires turned to reality, again!

Why have a Vacation on Winter time? 
Despite I easily get cold feet and hands when temperature drops, I am so in love with winter time as it provides an entirely fresh sense of being assuredly away from home, which screams, you're on vacation! And, the fact that winter does not visit the Philippines makes the season more exciting.  More so, dressing-up for a winter season is such a fun and stimulating activity.  Even the thought of wearing my boots certainly thrills me.

Blending In With My Personal Style + Style Tips!

Transferring to a new location have initially distressed me. Everything was unaccustomed and I was back to zero, career-wise. Then, I was also in direly wanting to activate my Fashion Styling skills. The artist in me had a compelling fighting spirit. Why be afraid, why hide, why remain dormant? So, I went online and befriended creative minds alike.  And guess what? Last quarter of this year, I have successfully made my very first fashion styling collaboration with amazing Filipino talents in the field of photography here in Doha, Qatar and finally got acquainted with my online-turn-real-life friends: Eds Dela Cruz and Christine Lyn Espinosa.

Part of resettling is the embracing of foreign culture and adapting to their lifestyle which includes dressing up according to their norms.  If you have been following this blog, you might have known by now that my personal style has permanently gravitated to a direction that always had a touch of modesty. I prefer covering my extremities, wearing …
