H&M Magazine Autumn 2009
Can I just say I *love* H&M? I really do. It’s totally mind-blogging why we still don’t have H&M yet they’re opening Tory Burch (please don’t laugh) here in Manila.
Thanks to yet another reader from Germany, the lovely folks over at the world’s favorite Swedish retailer sure know how to show some love. Last season they named me as one of their favourite style bloggers… and now this.
They published their “Hottest IT Teens” List on their Autumn 2009 magazine. Guess who made the cut? Well, Jenny Humphrey, Cory Kennedy, Pixie Geldof, Jethro Cave, Jourdann Dunn, Sam Kilcoyne, Eleanor Hardwick, Frances Bean Cobain and yours truly.
Teens!!! Hah. CHEEKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
In other news, I always get tickled every time I see “Philippines” in the fashion press. It’s nice to know there’s at least one person out there putting my ickle ‘ol country on the map. Just doing my job y’all.
H&M Magazine out now at all H&M stores worldwide.
Thank you so much H&M. You guys rock!
Glamour Magazine Germany
The very handsome nottonightpls from twitter bought the September issue of Glamour magazine Germany and saw me (and the always lovely Bunny Bisous; bloggers represent!) made a quick cameo appearance amongst the sea of famouz namez. *giggles*
Thank you German Glamour!
If you're in Switzerland, be sure to buy today's copy of SonntagsZeitung newspaper. My friend Rungang in Balmain and me, in Michael Angel, made a cameo appearance there. Ditto with Yvan of Facehunter.

The Daily Beast's Fashion Blogger Power List
The lovely folks over at Tina Brown's The Daily Beast just published their "Fashion Blogger Power List". Your favourite online heavyweights are there: Fashion Toast, The Sartorialist, Style Bubble, and Tommy of Jak and Jil.
Believe it or not, I often get bewildered every time media outlets, whether online or in print, publish wonderful things about me. I mean come on — I could barely put sentences together and my pictures are of mediocre quality to be a proper, proper 'blogger'. But you know what? For some strange reason, people seem to respond to my crazy formula of being fun, frivolous, spontaneous, carefree, post everything raw as it is, warts and all… it somehow works for me! I guess that's proof enough that the internet is so awesome. You can be a cuckoo kooky character living his dream (such as myself) and still have an audience.
Oh and this is the nicest thing someone said about me, EVER.
Thank you, thank you so much The Daily Beast!

Portrait of a mother and her child
I found (one of my old entries) myself quoted in a hysterical article in the Daily Telegraph yesterday without proper attribution.
Then there’s the Japanese fashion journalist and consultant Yu Masui, who is so obsessed with the designer Balenciaga that he regularly purchases and wears items from the women-only collection – handbags included. Such audacious and spendthrift bravery has furnished Yu Masui with a heroic status among internet fashion groupies. “I’m totally jeliz,” comments one, in fluently over-excitable fashionese, under a picture of Yu Masui wearing a fetching (if slightly undersized) Balenciaga floral top. “He’s fierce and ferosh to the highest levels.” (“Ferosh”, in case you didn’t know, is the fashionese abbreviation for “ferocious”, ferocious being a good thing, in the same way that “fierce” is also compliment.)
In other news….
- The Los Angeles Times published an article about fashion bloggers and me, Tavi and Rumi made the footnote.
- Thank you Elle Germany for the lovely mention.
- Tausend Dank Vogue Germany for the brief plug in your July 2009 issue.
