• MUST-GET ACCESSORY: Bold Sunglasses
    “Despite the current cold spell, it’s too sunny in this country not to have a cool pair of sunnies handy. There’s an amazing influx of choices hitting the retail scene now so the hard part is choosing.”
  • MUST-DO DIET: Pizza Versus Edward Mendez
    “I’m still studying Edward Mendez’s “eat more, exercise less” book. I like the mantra; it’s just a matter of making the time and switching up food choices. I will however say that I refuse to be corny and too obsessed about dieting. What’s the fun in that?” Lately, I’ve been obsessed with pizza: crust thickness, artisanal toppings, create-your-own, etc. With so many new pizza places popping up, I need to schedule at least one pizza night a week to try them all.”
    “You’ll appreciate the benefits over time.”

  • HOTSHOT PHOTOGRAPHERS: “Q.T.” & Jo Ann Bitagcol
    “[Preview] recently tapped a young photographer who’s documenting parties for us. He has a knack for capturing unguarded moments. To avoid pre-empting the coming issues, I’ll just say that his initials are Q.T. Other than that, I like the style and energy of Jo Ann Bitagcol’s photographs. She has a way of capturing the natural energy of her subjects, minus all the bells and whistles of added production. It’s refreshing.”

  • MUST-HAVE HAIR: The Undone ‘Do
