The devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines hits us hard over here at Sewbie HQ. As Filipino Americans, our hearts are heavy but the outpouring of love and help from all around us is beautiful. One of these generous souls is our very own Sewbie jewelry designer, NUDA who has launched a collection especially for relief efforts.

NUDA is known for her use of mixed metals, gems, leather, and other natural materials. Her pieces are earthy, boho, eclectic with edgy twists and vintage influence.

LA, LA

Beverly Hills

A while back I traveled to LA for work and while it was mostly business, a few of us made the best of it and tried to get out of the hotel and conference room every chance we could get before our heads exploded. It wasn’t easy as it was a jam packed weekend, hence the mirror selfies below to keep me entertained.

Thinking of starting a running theme of bathroom selfies titled #toiletseries.

Some days the hair just has a mind of its own.

The Beverly Hilton

This is seriously what kept me occupied while stuck in a conference for 8 hours. However, it has been said that doodling actually enhances concentration and promotes creativity during brainstorm sessions. I BELIEVE IT.

See ya again soon LA. I’ll be back for more Porto’s goodies & the Rose Bowl.
