For All You DIY'ers
You'll always find what you're looking for... (except poppy seeds because those are illegal here, ha!) including most things DIY. Since 2009 I have seen an increase in the DIY and creative movement here in Manila. Right now is such a great time to be in Manila. I've teamed up with Sassy Manila the last few months and have contributed some of my favorite DIY places and creations. Take a peek here but for more details and locations go to Sassy for full details.

It used to be a dream of mine to do a 'Party In A Box' with all the cute party stuff I found just in the grocery store. That ship has sailed but my eyes are still always wondering. At least I was able to share some knowledge for easy to find party supplies in everyday Manila locations. Read about my tips here. *Sometimes when you are attempting to play photographer and stylist your kids get in the mix.
