I go by the nickname ‘Dey’, a Psoriasis and Mental health advocate from the Philippines. An aspiring creative and fashion model who loves dressing-up on every travel opportunity.
I love listening to people’s stories as there’s always something (good) to bag from it. I think it’s a cycle where we humans keep on learning and discovering, unfolding truths and stories to make this society more human-friendly.
What inspires your fashion style and what is your style like?
What really inspires my fashion style is my mood. I wear what I want either based on what I am feeling at the moment or based on what I want to feel later. Let’s say if I am feeling a little too sexy, then I’ll wear something that’s showing more skin.
In addition, I like mixing-and-matching as I love twitching to form new styles.
Which 3 beauty products or accessories are a must have in your collection?
Since I have Psoriasis, moisturizers are a must-have. I always have my Laneige or Carenel Lip Mask, hand and nails hand cream from Marks and Spencer, and of course Aveeno or Cetaphil face and body lotion.
I do love accessorizing my outfit as well, as at some point it dashes a little extra even if you are just wearing simple jeans and a top.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
I guess it’s a 10, can I make it 11 perhaps? LOL. I love eating and discovering new tastes while exploring new places to eat, especially those hole-in-the-wall eateries as we’ll never know what lies behind.
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do or learn but have yet to find the time for it?
Been really dying to learn marketing and finance. Sometimes, I have been wondering what it would be like working in those fields. I just felt like they suited me, that my personality matches the roles.
Jiu Jitsu is another as I love working out as much as I love eating (see the irony there? LOL), but it’s very rare to find a trainer within my vicinity plus my time cannot afford it.
Do you believe in any superstition?
As an Asian – to be more specific a Filipina, yes I do, but that was when I was a kid. Now I do not believe in them anymore; probably because I am now more logical than before?
Which flavor best describes you?
I must say vanilla. Vanilla always looks and tastes plain yet expensive, but it’s a flavor for all. Who doesn’t love vanilla anyway?
Vanilla can go with almost anything. Not just itself being the usual ice cream flavor, but it can also be added on snacks and viands that will create another magical discovery. I guess Vanilla and I have that same energy and tendencies.
What turns you off on a date?
Someone who brags and flexes unnecessarily and someone disrespectful. On a certain date, aside from mood and ambience, it’s the personality of a person that matters most. Their actions and how they communicate is a way to get to know them.
I guess it’s self-explanatory as to why bragging and being disrespectful are the attributes to totally turn me off on a date.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Deanne. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Being sexy is how we, personally, feel about ourselves. It’s not always the numbers associated with our bodies – waistline, bustline, height, weight, or even the prices of our lingeries.
It’s the exuberating confidence we are claiming over ourselves. If we feel sexy on the way we think, then be it. If feeling empowered is what makes us feel sexy, then go and spread the vibes.
