Did you spend your 2018 with a purpose? Did you give 100% on your career, work on your well-being, pursue your passion? Did you nourish relationships that really matter? It is in this opportune time that I get to quiet down and reflect on the things I’ve done or failed to do so as the year winds down to an end. If you managed to do at least half of your resolves from the beginning ofthe year, I say give yourself a pat on the back. To even acknowledge or set out a goal is a huge step, while accomplishing them, is another feat in itself. Although I like to visualize and project what I want to happen in the future, I think it’s more important to focus on the…

letter of the month

And that desensitization is alarming, especially for someone who has sworn to really live life to the best of my given abilities. However, every time I flip through the pages of your magazine, I always get a renewed sense of vigor on many stories, truths and insights you put to print. For example, I was especially interested in the sexual harassment story in your features section, because it truly put things into perspective. Yes, everyone is taking great strides in the #MeToo conversation, but this piece made me really understand the scope of the issue, knowing where it begins and how it should end.…

much about her

A day following an extended long weekend, energies were understandably sluggish and a slow burn, but not for Heart Evangelista-Escudero, who despite a fairly early call time was already bright and bubbly from the red-bricked corner of the studio where she was being dolled up for the day’s itinerary of shoots. Despite casting our sight to the illuminated section of the space in increment of seconds, we found ourselves getting drawn for longer periods of time, which is a clear testament to how her beauty is one that consistently draws you in. Hers is a face one will never grow tired of, even with years in the industry tucked under her belt, as well as a recent resurgence on the dynamic landscape of the world wide web.

Everyone spends most of December in disbelief. We’ve ticked all the days off our calendars unconsciously, making it through the lowest of lows, and soared through the smallest of victories without even knowing it. What would you do if you only had 31 days left from the year? You indulge in life’s luxuries. Luxury meaning exclusivity, purity, class and sophistication. Luxury enthralled on things that are not necessarily tangible. Live lavishly as we give you the best of the best in our year-ender issue. In Best Buys, we dish on your next wardrobe essentials for fall with pleats, leather and blue hues. Sequins are the life of the party in Get Ready to Wear, and we celebrate the on-going revival of Philippine fashion with the most celebrated designers in the…
