Mixtape #1: My Hands, Your Bones

yeah

Have you ever come home just drained and exhausted? Not just from a long day at work but from everything in general? Ever needed to escape to sounds you could mildly resonate with, in all its longing, mistakes, and ongoing recovery?

Well, I’ve put together an 8-song playlist backed up by some pretty solid chicks who seem to know a thing or two about messing up and bouncing back again. It’s a bit of a stretch to say that the playlist will uplift your spirits and convince you of a changed life BUT I guarantee reassurance, major chill-vibes, and that redbull kick you’ll need to end the day doing something you love, and less of what you’ll regret.

Here’s a look at the line-up:

  1. Lose It | Oh Wonder
  2. Bad Blood | NAO
  3. Make You Feel | Alina Baraz & Galimatias
  4. Loud Places | Jamie xx ft. Romy
  5. Leave Me Alone | Kaytranada ft. Shay Lia
  6. Warm Water | Banks (Snakehips Remix)
  7. Never Be Like You | Flume ft. Kai
  8. Treat Me Like Fire – Lion Babe

So, if you’re looking for something to cool down to that balances “too real” word-play and chill-grooves that will get you to sway (even if you think you’re too pooped to), follow me.

COOL FOR THE SUMMER

Top: Lucy In The Sky | Glorietta 5

Pants: Cesar Gaupo (vintage)

Bangle: Aldo

Shades: Legazpi Sunday Market

Summer is upon us! And while the Manila heat unleashes florals, sandals, and short-shorts, let’s not forget the cooling power of whites and shades of blue. Cool tones are reliable day-to-day staples that you can easily upgrade from casual to dressy in a heartbeat.

For this look, it honestly took me less than 5 minutes to throw on. A wide-leg pant is perfect for unfriendly, bloated days (and buffets!) to keep you at ease while still looking put-together. I paired it with a simple halter-neck top which I believe is flattering on any body type. Remember that the halter cut exposes the clavicle (collar bone)! This draws the eyes inward and easily gives the illusion of a slimmer frame.

I paired the look with only two accessories — a statement gold bangle and a pair of shades. While I sported the look with a pair of pumps, it would have worked just as well with a pair of cute sandals.

So play it up, ladies! And know that you can own standing out with a cool vibe!
