The Tina pouches

This is so difficult to post. Okay let me start. The cosmetic pouch in playful orange and calming blues and Ilocano binakol put together is named Tina. Tina is the writer of BlauEarth, this blog.

It was a complete surprise to be tagged in a post by the owner of MODi, the line of fashion items inspired by the modern Ilocano. Humbled and grateful. Got two Tinas from MODi last night. Kept them in a safe place as of this writing.

Doubly happy to be part of something that helps sustain the fading tradition of inabel. Manang Cion Padayao would have been very kilig. Thank you MODi.

MODi is available at Red Dot, Cafe Bonita and the MODi stall in Robinsons Ilocos Norte.

Abel Iloco

I spoke for a group of young Ilocano writers today. Thanking Samtoy Books for the privilege of sharing the things I learned while trying to blog. I told them fashion is just one of the categories here:) Capped the Asian vibe of the look with an abel Iloco 2-way bag in op art weave binakol. It’s from MODi (Modern Ilocana).

Guess who I met at the taripnong? Dave Guison, the top male fashion blogger talking about fashion blogging!

The Pinkbox inside Red Dot has found its own space at the PureGold Laoag (in the second level food court, a store away from the MODi store I featured last year.)

My love for bikes extends to trinkets. Asked Jaja to make me my inspiration for summer. My collection of friendship bands is growing, hahah, rivaling Ericke’s. It cost me only a little over a hundred pesos:)
