Lisa Macuja-Elizalde: An interview with a living legend by Jel Tordesillas  Lisa Macuja-Elizalde is undoubtedly one of my idols. I used to live, eat, and breathe ballet when I was growing up. It is one of the highlights of my childhood and teen years. Back then, hearing of someone who was handpicked to join the iconic Kirov Ballet was mind blowing, inspiring, and just plain amazing. Lisa was similar to a mythical creature that I couldn’t believe existed.  Some other […]

  Gone are the days that jogger pants and trainers were meant for well, jogging alone. Athleisure has brought athletic wear to a whole new level of cool and sophistication. Millennials, particularly, can be seen sporting this hybrid fashion trend in school, in the mall, or even in clubs. It’s no surprise since athleisure is one versatile look. So what exactly is athleisure and why is it such a hit with millennials? From the word athleisure, you can make out two words, “athletic” and “leisure”.

So does that mean that wearing a dress and sneakers is now fashion statement? Absolutely! As long as you style it right and wear the right items. The […]

  I don’t sing. Correction. I can’t sing, which is why it’s strange that I’m a fan of musicals. I memorize the lyrics and stuff, and can  probably attempt to sing them—but it comes out more like reciting a poem. There are probably a lot more people who can relate to this sad, sad, reality. <insert crying smiley, haha!> I’m lucky that I live in a country (Philippines) that patronizes musicals. The Philippines has their share of […]
