She’s the daughter of Janet Lim Napoles, currently the most hated woman in the Philippines.
While mom Janet is in police custody for (probably) having stolen billions from the Filipino people, Jeane is somewhere in Los Angeles doing God knows what.
Here’s a photo of Jeane in a limo posted in her Tumblr last August 2011, and all I can say is, wow legs!
They look unreal—until you see her in photos with various Hollywood celebrities.
While most of us have photos taken with celebs at Madame Tussaud, Jeane Napoles has hers taken with Josh Duhamel (6′ 3½”)
and Zachary Levi (6′ 4″)
while she towers over Justin Bieber (5′ 6 1/2″)
and looks like a giant next to Steve Carrell (5′ 8 1/2″)
Justin Timberlake is more or less 6 feet tall
and Jeane seems to be the same height as Blake Lively, who is taller than most of her Gossip Girl co-stars (5′ 10″)
Which leads me to ask: where did she get her height?
OMG Mrs. Napoles is nearly 5’9″!!
Last night some of us were lucky enough to be invited to YStyle’s 10th anniversary at SMX Aura.
Can you imagine, ten years?? Congrats to Bea Ledesma, Celine Lopez and their team.
Can I just say Bea Ledesma is a genius? The venue was genius. The seating arrangement was genius.
So many people were there and we didn’t see all of them!
Everyone came home with a giant swag bag/laundry bag/eco bag designed by Everywhere We Shoot x Bleach Catastrophe.
So today I was staring at the bag and wondering how to carry this around and figured out a way to do it.
Take the bag and flip it over with the pouch pocket exposed
Fold it like so
and the other side
Fold the hem up to the mouth of the bag
and kind of stuff everything into that little pouch. Et voila!
I feel like giving away stuff again.
It started with a gift pack from Caronia, which includes 6 bottles of nailpolish and an amazing little MP3 player with a great big sound.
I love this thing so much, I asked Caronia c/o Geiser Maclang to share some with my readers.
This little boom box comes with a micro SD card that has the new Caronia jingle. But you could also fill it up with your own songs using your computer. I take this little cube to the bathroom because I can’t shower without sound, otherwise weird thoughts will enter my head.
I threw in a couple of CarbTrim carb blockers, which are a great alternative to drinking sweet juices or soda, because it helps block up to 66% of carbs in your meal. Also picked up some cooling sanitary pads in Hong Kong recently, plus a funny iPhone panty (color may vary).
Everything goes inside a one of five Rootote bags, including the Tin Inglesias x Rootote bag, which are available on Zalora.
Such a lucky girl to have her illustration on a Rootote bag. Read about the collaboration HERE.

“I want to travel for a living!” says my friend’s bio on Instagram.
My friend, Ginggay Joven de la Merced, started working as a teenager in her mom’s PR firm, Visions and Expressions.
We met in the late ’90s when she was working as a Philippine Star columnist.
Now in her 30s, Ginggay functions as a part-time consultant, full-time house manager, mom of two kids, and wife to Noel.
Ginggay is one of those people I know who has itchy feet, always thinking of where to travel next.
And she doesn’t just go around Asia for shopping or hoarding objects. The Ginggay I know doesn’t even like shopping. She prefers collecting memories and images.
Ginggay is also one of the first people I know who ever got into Instagram and became obsessed with it.
Her first photo was posted 103 weeks ago. And she doesn’t post food, nail polish or selfies. Instead, she takes her followers on her trips around the world. I find it amazing what an iPhone can do!
I didn’t even know she had it in her to be a talented travel photographer.
Ginggay is truly one of those people I envy because of the way she travels—not that often, but more of quality—even choosing unique hotels online.
She also takes her Instagram account seriously, which is why I’m glad someone finally noticed!
Ginggay is nominated in Style Bible’s Virtual Style Awards.
I even took time to register just to vote for her, so please help me vote because she deserves the recognition!
You can vote for her ten times a day until September 15, 2013.
