With so much to see, one must wear comfy shoes. This I did not do during my visit to FAME last March. Call me crazy but I wore my 4 inch heeled shoes that I thought were so comfy until my 3rd hour of wearing it.
Anyway, first thing I see, our favorite lifestyle store, FIRMA. They popularized the use of ostrich eggs in lamps here in Manila. This time, it seems to me (looking at the photo) that they have metalized (if there is such a word) it to give it a more modern metallic look to it.
And then a pleasant surprise. I bumped into beautiful friends.
I saw these really cute throw pillows with embroidered carabao by Tara.

Cutest thing..... This table/cabinet/mega jewellery box designed by Ana Rocha for Designs Ligna. Best thing about it? You can customize it according to the size, compartments and color that you want! Something to look into, right Ginny?
