After spiraling into a John Mayer time space warp with Patty and Chinggay, I started a collaborative playlist on Spotify featuring oldies but goodies. While I’m amused with his latest single (and matching kitschy video), I truly miss Room for Squares!JMayer.
I joined some friends for a cosmic collaboration called Mystic Matter. I haven’t really sold my baked goods at bazaars or anything like that (unless you count bake sales in grade school) so this was a fun first for me. I gave my bestsellers a magical makeover to fit the theme. Kahlua Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting never looked better!
Thanks to everyone who tried some and posted about it, too. I haven’t been cooking since Ate Elena came back plus the heat has been unbearable, but I’m hoping to spend more time in the kitchen again now that the rainy season is just around the corner.
So during the last full moon, I pulled some cards to help me figure out what’s next. Though the first five months of the year has been all about collaboration, I think it’s time to focus on my personal goals. The thing about working in a group is that sometimes, we tend to get lost in all the noise, losing sight of our own vision in the process. We’re almost halfway into 2018 and there are just so many possibilities! So here’s hoping the next few months will help me move forward in the right direction.
A reminder that this, of course, goes both ways.
When I was planning the Dandy Ona x Prima collection with Mansy, I asked my friend and fellow Candy Girl Sam if she and her husband Ralph (omg then-boyfriend when I asked!) could shoot the pieces. We were originally planning a location shoot here in Manila but they ended up taking the clips on tour while they were in the US for their wedding. <3 Love how all the shots came out and happy to finally share them in a Prima Diary on the Dandy Ona website. You can still order your own Prima clip online or drop by any of Hey Kessy’s branches to pick up a piece for yourself or to give as a gift. I also have a few pieces on hand so just let me know if you want to order from me!
