Every now and then I get questions asking me why my style (outfit) has changed.

If you have been with me ever since I started doing my ootd way back in my old blog (2008) you will notice that I am more casual now.

Those days when I was a full time housewife and all I did was bring the kids to school and pick them up. Go to lunches with my mommy friends everyday.

I was around people who did the same thing and who had the same lifestyle I had.

But things changed. Things has changed and so did my lifestyle and I had to adapt to the change.

When I started Willow Jewelry I found myself dealing with different kinds of people (suppliers, goldsmith, clients, etc). I found myself in places I don’t normally go. In some sleazy parts of the city.

My lifestyle is totally different now and I need to adjust.

And that’s the reason why my style has changed.

Sometimes change is what we need.




Jinggay, a good friend of mine requested that I put my make up details. So, I’ll be doing that from now on. Starting with this post.
