I was originally introduced to Sandra by my best friend KC. Turns out I have lots of mutual friend with Sandra! A traveller, a lover of art and culture there has always been much to dicuss and enjoy!  Now based in the Philippines I see her a little less but I still get to watch her amazing adventures and travels around the globe and convenietly she has my address so she can send absolutely amazing postcards our way in the studio with tips from her stops as she goes. This one from the Philippines about the religious festival Sinulog – celebrating the conversion of pagan Filipinos to the Roman Chatholic church. The colours look incredible!

“Dear Alex, You have to come and visit me in Manila soon – I have to take you to one of the religious fiestas – Sinulog or Pahiyas since they are so vibrant and tons of fun – massive street parties with the best local street food!! xx Sandra”

Sinulog festival takes place the third Sunday of January.


Keep it festive and fun in the Gold Lame Loni top but also keep yourself cool wit this midriff baring fitting top. If you have to cover your neck you may as well reveal your flat tummy!


Manila is full of street food. Try Mang Larry’s Isawan at UP Diliman.


Feel like at home in The Henry Hotel, one of Manila’s best kept secrets. Find it at 2680 F.B. Harrison Street, Pasay City.
