an invitation

Since I started blogging I've been getting invitation to events, places and have lately been turning them down since I've really been busy or it just coincides with dates which I have set plans beforehand. I really feel bad turning invites down since am quite flattered they even invited me in the first place =).

Recently I got invited by Ms Pache Paredes to their event entitled SIGLO. I'm all for supporting young talent most specially CSB students since am quite close to some of them through my work mentorship program. See more details below...

the weekend artist inspiration #6: creative materials

Here are my current obsessions! My newest books and gadgets.
I bought this book entitled 'Make Your Creative Dreams Real' by Sark.
Actually it's the subtitle that caught my attention...'A Plan for Procrastinators, Perfectionists, Busy People, and people who would really rather Sleep All Day'.
That's me! Basically(from what I have read so far) it helps you select a creative dream/s that you want to make a reality. It's more of a moral booster with step-by-step or weekly tasks suggested to help you be on your path there. I bought it specifically on a not so inspiring day =(.

My 2nd book is '200 Projects to Get You into Fashion Design'(though I am already working in it!). I bought it because the exercises looked fun in a non-like-my-job way(don't get me wrong i love my job). it's just that the exercises are not related to my job so it makes it fun for me. Plus the exercises I do here I can share here since it's not confidential =).

My fave of all is my new cam which was given to me as a gift(thanks pao!). Finally I have an option to my point-shoot camera(which I still love since I can carry it everyday).
These are my current obsessions! Plus am reading 'A Game of Thrones' since I saw the HBO series I'm hooked!

the weekend artist inspiration #5: my blogging hiatus

<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/3165983/the-weekend-artist?claim=rrm9xh2gkev">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

I've been on a blogging hiatus for almost a month! So my day job kept me away for the whole time. I was busy with Fashion Week since we mount a big show almost every year. From selecting models, selecting clothes, meetings w directors, stylists, etc. To mentoring and assigning tasks to designers and assistants. And aside from that I needed to go to Hongkong to source for the next season and meet up with suppliers. We also had to visit China for a short buying trip(the picture from my hotel bedroom is the one above) and cross back to HK on the way back.

I had to go home by myself so I can make it on-time for a mtg the next day. My flight was postponed TWICE! So I had to stay in the airport for more than 6 hours doing nothing!

I ended up buying another journal and a photography book to pass the time!
Oh did I mention that I finally got a DSLR camera!

So that's what kept me away from blogging. Clearly my work demands so much time from me but I just can't say I don't love what I'm doing even the stressful part I have come to love!
It is one of my greatest inspiration and source of happiness as well... to do what i'm doing and to sharing what I know to others.
