arrianeserafico Woke up this morning with a RAINBOW right next to me in bed... followed by the realization that, last night*, I just watched this poem (a monumentally special #poem in my life!) performed LIVE by @kaysarahsera herself.

So yeah. Everything's really really really really really magical right now. :)

arrianeserafico Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away. -- Sarah Kay

Today's the day we get to meet and watch #SarahKay and #PhilKaye! I couldn't sleep from all the excitement!!! Feels JUST as good as waking up to this. #spokenword #poetry #vscocam #finditliveit

arrianeserafico Hard truth by #amberibarreche.

My favorite kind of people are the curious ones: the ones I can learn from & learn WITH, the ones who ask as much questions as I do, the ones whose curiosity make ME a hundred times curiouser about the whole wide world.

arrianeserafico I'm walking (sitting?) on sunshine, wo-oooah

It's always mesmerizing to see our @rags2richesinc #artisans hard at work at their craft. This massive handwoven panel is for a very special project, and is already 2 WEEKS in the making... can you just imagine how much skill & patience it takes to make sure everything is equal & balanced: from the lines, down to the tension in each pull? Ganun sila ka-galing. Promise, sobrang hirap mag-weave the #artisanal way. #SilaNaAlready

PS. This is just 1/3 of the entire panel!!

arrianeserafico Working on a MASSIVE personal goal this first half of the year. Not gonna lie: It's making me really anxious -- but also making me even more excited.

But it's great: I'm pumped & raring to go every time I wake up every morning (even weekends)! A meaningful goal to me is like... an extra-squeaky toy to a baby Golden Retriever

arrianeserafico Tonight: Getting all fancy at #SunLifePH120, celebrating with my Sun Life family -- watching Legacy: The Musical.

But first, because food is foooood - here's the final piece of our Margarita Fores dinner: Cashew crusted millefoglie, Canadian camembert-mascarpone foam, with Baguio strawberries & coconut latik drizzle. (Is this real life!!!) I wasn't able to take a photo of the main course because um... #nomz

arrianeserafico This morning's "work station" ★

For real! We had a #tiedye workshop in the @rags2richesinc office with the team, plus our artisans!! Last time I did this, I was probably 10 years old.

These @rags2richesinc wallets may be fun-sized, but these artisan-woven wallets are hella hard to make (believe me, I've tried). They take meticulous patience & steady hands & a quiet heart + mind. Things I struggle with, obviously. Hehehe.

PS. So glad to be working with @joditsantander, who takes #flatlays as seriously as I do. Which is, VERRRRY seriously #srsbznz

arrianeserafico Receiving flowers makes everything better.
...Even if they're just the ones you had delivered for a product shoot, hehe. (Just between you & me though... It would've been 10x better if these were pink + white carnations!! #mykryptonite)

arrianeserafico Look at this! This incredibly amazing high-school girl, Patricia, took down notes *while* I was giving a talk. (The ones on the left are from my talk, is it obvious?? Existential na naman ang theme)

These days, I turn down every invite to talk about blogging -- not unless it's really my core audience who share my same values. This community definitely qualifies. Thank you for today, girls! #IKnowWriteTurnsOne
