How Cherie Gil Convinced Me I Needed A Stylist
Speed Philippines|September 2017

CALL ME A “SECOND-RATE, TRYING hard copycat,” but it took several hits from a Facebook ad-testimonial from Cherie Gil to inspire me to upgrade my limited wardrobe selection. And fast.

Michelle Orosa - Ople

Let me tell you why. When I say limited wardrobe, I mean limited. As a journalist for over the past decade-and-a-half, my wardrobe usually rotated among anything flexible enough to be worn from hotels one second, to wet markets, accidents, and fire incidents the next: collared shirts, 3/4 sleeved tops, and jeans, jeans, jeans. I had a few nice outfits, to be sure, for the usual nights out and personal events. Thing is, I am about to change industries; I will be moving from media to public relations. As a journalist who’s met some of the best PR professionals in this country, let me just say my “limited wardrobe” was definitely crying out for help.

Enter Cherie Gil and this Facebook ad from Stylist in Pocket (SiP). There she was, wearing a crisp, elegant yellow top and chic pants, in her quaint, beautiful home, just sharing her confidence in the stylist who visited her and put together her outfit. I was sold that first hit. Surely these stylists could work on me too! It took a few more hits, but eventually I went and checked out SiP’s site to surf the selection myself.

I clicked “Sign Up” on SiP’s Facebook page, and upon seeing the site, I was hooked. There was no turning back from there.

STARDEW VALLEY SUPREMACY

Stardew Valley is definitely one of the most successful and most popular indie games to have come out in the last few years. What started out as a fan-made alternative to Harvest Moon (Back to Nature is definitely one of my ultimate favorite games of all time), the game eventually received financial support and a cult following, paving the way for its release in 2016. By 2020, the game has sold over 10 million copies.
