“Baguio! I rarely go, but it's always a place think of when I imagine myself going on an out of town trip. I like that it's cold, gloomy, not too far, and the mood fits a lot of the shoots I want to do.”
“I'm not a fan of displaying trinkets around the house, but I do love good organizers and storage solutions. Recently, I've been stocking up on portable clothes racks and rolling plastic containers for my growing collection of clothes and props for my personal shoots. And my thrift hauls, of course!”

“My nose is very sensitive to scents, so I like my immediate surroundings smelling nice! Normally I'll spray whatever perfume I'm wearing that day around the room, but now I'm really loving the Downy Perfume Linen Sheets. I even have one under my pillow because it's just such a comforting thing to smell before sleeping!”
“I really, really love vacuum cleaners. I'm quite a clean freak and just feel better when I have a vacuum cleaner nearby.”

“I can't bear throwing away packaging that can be used to store things, such as cheese boxes that are perfect size calling cards, office supplies, and even batteries and chargers. And since the family business is office and school supplies, I ask my grandfather for used boxes of paper reams. I use them to store my perfumes, clothes, shoes, and so much more!”
“I really love just natural wood, concrete, and bricks. My dream home would be a loft or something reminiscent of a ‘50s factory with a high ceiling, big windows, old bricks, and old wood!”

“I have a little walk-in makeup room in my bathroom, and on one side is a wall with shelves where I keep my perfume collection, favorite children's books, and my tearsheets. It's special because when I visit home, I always deposit a couple of new magazines containing my work, and I pick out a perfume and book to bring back with me.”
“My boyfriend constructed a platform bed, so our ‘night table’ is actually the top of his tall speaker. On it are a vintage fan, a VW Beetle scale model, and heavy binoculars from the ‘50s. I also have a magazine, a coffee table book, and a short story book by the bed.”
