Looks like my readers and followers are mostly for Duterte, according to a poll I have been running since the 2nd presidential debate.
The poll was promoted on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. Duterte continues to win after more than 1500 votes.
Still crossing my fingers I can vote in this election, if by some chance they will move the date later than May 9.
If you would like to participate in the poll, you can still do so HERE.
I’m a huge fan of online shopping, sometimes more than physical store shopping.
I’ve been shopping online since 1999. Here’s proof, and don’t laugh. This was my first ever order from Amazon—a book and two VHS tapes.
I can’t tell you how online shopping has changed my life. I can do it when everyone’s asleep and there’s no one to talk to. It keeps me sane! How I wish there would be more Philippine-based online sellers. I would be happy to support them.
One of the newest online fashion retailers in town is called Weave.
The difference between Weave and other online sellers that they don’t just sell the products; they also design and make them.
The designers, headed by Brit Romero, work with an experienced production team to make sure each item is of skilled artistry and integrity.
Brit Romero graduated from De La Salle’s College of Saint Benilde where she major in Fashion Design and Merchandising. After that, she continued her studies in London College of Fashion and took up Fashion Business.
Weave is still a new site. Right now there are 24 basic items available, like skirts, tops, trousers, culottes and dresses in neutral colors of black, grey and white. These items are easily mixed and matched, so you’ll have less things to worry about when getting dressed.
Weave’s goal is to be an “online fashion stylist” for women.
They’re planning to expand their offerings next month so follow them on Facebook or Instagram.
Enjoy an exclusive 20 percent discount when you shop at Weave.

Model, TV presenter and style icon Alexa Chung collaborates with Marks & Spencer for a unique women’s wear capsule collection called “Archive by Alexa.”
What makes the collection unique is that Alexa looked into the Marks & Spencer Company Archive, based at Leeds University, where she got the opportunity to study one of the richest retail history collections in the United Kingdom.
Founded in 1984, the Marks & Spencer Archive is home to over 70,000 historical items, and chronicles the brand’s journey of over 130 years, from its beginnings at the Penny Bazaar to its expansion as an international multi-channel retailer.
“In the collection itself, I think there is something that you can build into your existing wardrobe, whatever your style; from classics like the trench coat in rich olive and oversized blue shirt; to quirky additions like the paisley print dress and wide leg ‘70s tailored trousers,” said the 32-year-old English model, television presenter and contributing editor at British Vogue.
Alexa incorporates her youthful, vibrant aesthetic while ensuring that she preserves and honors the proud heritage of the brand.
“I curated the collection, carefully selecting pieces from the Marks & Spencer Company Archive and working with the Marks & Spencer design team to reproduce them for a contemporary consumer. I rummaged through clothing, magazines and amazing old films and cherry-picked relevant items; bringing them back to life for 2016,” she shared.
Ensuring that her collection remained faithful to her vision, Alexa was hands-on during the campaign and worked as the overall creative director for the project.
“There was something very touching about looking back through the British fashion and social history for which Marks & Spencer is synonymous… I have always had affection for Marks & Spencer, and I am thrilled to be part of this special and unique project.”
