Dessert Table Styling

Table Styling for Desserts

I attended Inquirer Lifestyle’s Best Desserts 3 book launch written by Vangie Baga-Reyes last February 6 at the SMX Convention Centre at SM Aura.  It was a dessert festival and I loved every bit (and bite) of it.  But I also adored the table set up of a couple of the bakers.

Museum Design

SF Museum of Modern Art

One of my must visit places during my holiday in California last month was the newly renovated San Francisco Museum of Modern Art which reopened in May 2016.  It was actually the first thing that was checked on my to do list!

I was excited to see the exhibitions but I was surprised that I loved the interior of the museum!  It felt light, bright (lots of natural light!) and I love the white and light wood combination around the museum…and ohhh those comfy couches across the museum store!

Restaurant and Cafe Interior Styling

Mahalo Aina

I just came from the Bay Area in California where I spent the Christmas holiday with my family.  One of the restaurants on my list to try this time around was Aina, a Hawaiian brunch place in Dogpatch, San Francisco that opened in 2016 .  Well, I mainly wanted to go there because that’s my name!

But surprisingly, I loved their food and the restaurant’s interiors too!  Even if it was a cold January morning, our brunch felt so warm and homey with their interiors.  Also, the restaurant’s acoustics was not noisy and irritating (noisy restaurant acoustics is a pet peeve of mine!!)

Entrance: I adored the wooden signage of Aina (I want one for myself!)

My Favorite Gilmore Girls Spots

When I heard about the Gilmore Girls Revival, I immediately did a marathon of Gilmore Girls’ seven season on Netflix.  I fell in love again with Logan’s college apartment and his New York place, Rory’s pool house and of course the Dragonfly Inn.

Logan Huntzberger’s Apartments: Even if these are Bachelor pads (and I’m on Team Jess), I still love the style! Plus, I’m such a big fan of brick walls.

MaArte Bazaar Fave Finds

Last Friday I visited the MaArte Bazaar (for the first time!) at 8 Rockwell.  There were three home furniture and decor companies that I really loved.  I want their pieces to be part of my home!

I’m such a big fan of bar carts and daybeds!  So when I saw their bar carts, I couldn’t get over them!  I first saw their booth at ArtifactPH in Alabang Town Center last July and I loved their daybed!
