goodbye, yes! …hello, pep.ph

It’s been a good run. All of 18 years, plus one month. With this May 2018 issue, we would’ve put out a total of 235 issues of YES! That comes up to 6,606 days, 944 weeks, and 217 months of blood, sweat, and tears, with lots of laughter in between. I recall the beginning. It was the year 2000, and I was knocking on doors of producers and managers that knew me. Mainly, I was trying to get these powerful people to allow their stars to appear in the new magazine we were calling YES!, Your Entertainment Source.

1 “Huwag kang magtitiris ng pimple. Huwag mong pipilitin, kasi magsusugat, magma-mark, lalalim. Ang nagsabi sa akin niyan, si Jerald Napoles [her Sunday PinaSaya cohost]. So, paniwalaan n’yo ako, totoo ’to.” 2 “Huwag n’yong katatamarang magtanggal ng makeup kahit pagod na pagod na kayo. Kailangan magtanggal kayo ng makeup.” 3 “Always apply sunscreen, kasi parang every day palala na nang palala ’yong weather natin dito sa Pilipinas.

Thea Tolentino Wearing metallic pieces doesn’t have to be reserved for the festive and holiday season. With balance and the right choice for your accessories, you can definitely carry this trend all year round, from day to night. Don’t limit yourself to gold and silver. These days, metallic tops and bottoms come in different colors, even in pastel shades. For day wearing, just keep in mind that pairing your metallic item with neutral-colored pieces will take the intensity down a notch.
