When All Hope Seems Lost…

Finding light in the darkness. There are only so many times you can play the Prince of Egypt theme song ‘When You Believe,’ before you wonder if it was truly written for a different time, wherein hope was in deed only frail, and not yet impossible to kill. We live in...

The Unspoken Side Effects of Covid19

It has been 4 months since I have written. In a time where it seems as though all we have is ‘time,’ you would think I would have had more to say. But if I’m being honest, waking up at 3am on many days with a racing mind and a pounding heart has not been easy. And I...

Wonder Women

Being the month of May, Philippine Tatler and Rustans the Beauty Source recently teamed up to honor mothers everywhere. While this is a project I would’ve supported no matter what, I felt incredibly humbled to have been selected as one of the mothers asked to share...
