Greetings from Manila! This is a short but surely sweet 10-day visit, but I've managed to pack a good amount of down time. Been catching up with friends and family, visiting my favorite shops and restaurants - and even snuck in a bit of work while meeting with some local designers. My friend Vernice snapped this pic of me while we were touring Filipino interior designer Eric Paras' stunning showrooms, which I'll be featuring here soon. I've been running around comfortably in relaxed tops, shorts or pants and flats - perfect for the insanely good weather (it's neither warm nor chilly). 

This past weekend my best friend had her intimate Catholic ceremony, and this coming Saturday will be her real, BIG day. I can't tell you how happy I am to be here for her. So grateful.

I am missing the hubby and my baby SO much. It was initially hard adjusting to "vacation" mode - I have to constantly remind myself that these kind of trips are good for a mama's  mind, body and soul. Feeling so refreshed and totally inspired at this point.

Thanks for dropping by! Hope you have a great rest of the week.
