I’m an entrepreneur and micro content creator born and raised in the Philippines. I am currently in the Sales & Marketing field and is also running my own swimsuit line – Attitude SWIMS. My love for travel, photography, and bikinis are what really jumpstarted my content creator journey. It gives me a sense of fulfillment every time I see new places, experience new activities, and learn new skills, when traveling. Cause to me, that is the essence of life.
How do you describe your fashion style and where do you love to shop from?
I could say that my fashion style is unapologetic. I do love to wear whatever that makes me feel empowered and on top of my game. I love shopping from both local and international swimsuit and fashion boutiques on Instagram. I can’t really pinpoint specific shops because I love exploring different brands.
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
My business is keeping me busy, and I am aiming to focus more on releasing new stuff. But personally, I recently learned how to surf, and I’m really determined to be good at it. I am also aiming to learn how to free dive and is another goal I want to achieve this 2023.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of an adventurer are you?
11/10! I love exploring. I love discovering hidden gems in every island I visit. The world is a huge playground that needs to be experienced.
If you could have a superpower, what will it be?
If I could have a superpower, I would want to be able to fly! So, I don’t have to pay for plane tickets anymore haha. This would give me the ability to just fly and relax anytime I want on a secluded island somewhere. That would be a dream!
Can you recommend 3 things every tourist should experience in the city you live in?
- Is to book your plane ticket and fly to one of the provinces. Honestly, if you are going to visit the Philippines you should fly straight to one of the islands instead of the Metro.
- Always try local foods in whichever island you are visiting. They would always have something different, and exciting to offer.
- I would always recommend supporting the small local business owners than big brands. They are always very welcoming and will give you the best customer service. Don’t be scared to talk to them and ask for recommendations because they would always try to help you find the best things you can experience on their island.
What is a typical day like for you?
My job is to mainly work for a creative agency’s UK office, so my working hour starts later in the day for me. (5pm PHT to 2am PHT) Plus, I work from home, so I have time to devote my morning and afternoon for self-care and to my business. This setup really works perfectly for me.
Typically, my morning starts with me sipping coffee as soon as I wake up. My day would not be complete without coffee. I’d rest for a while and then start working out for 30 to 45 minutes. I will then take a shower and lunch by noon. After that, I will then prepare and pack orders from The Attitude Clothing, to ship. After all my self-care and business stuff done, I maximize the rest of the day before my day job starts, in content creation.
This is when I answer emails from brands inviting me for a collaboration or partnership. I also, take this time to engage with my followers and plan content for the week ahead. I usually create content during the weekends because I love planning everything before I shoot. I sometimes book an Airbnb, eat on a restaurant, or even plan a whole vacation trip to shoot content. This is mostly for swimsuit and fashion brands where it would require for me to be more creative.
So, you can say most of my days are jampacked with activities lol. But I love it that way. It gives me more self-fulfillment more than anything.
What turns you off on a date?
I guess it’s if a guy is too quiet and only knows how to answer in 1 or 2 words. I know some people are introverts, but conversation is very important to me. It’s how I would know if our values and principles are aligned. I love a good conversation and I love hearing someone’s opinion about something.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Jil. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I love this question! Because that is what my swimsuit line stands for. “Sexy” for me is not based on what you look like but more of an ATTITUDE. The attitude to be unbothered in whatever room you walk in. The attitude to answer to no one. And the attitude to empower another. That is what “Sexy” is for me
