Let’s take it back for a moment… I began Patti’s Palette in 2009 -300 posts that year!- while I was a college student at Pepperdine University in Malibu. My very first entry was dated February; I dove right into the blogosphere writing about my Valentine’s Day date that my then-boyfriend took me on. The Bazaar by Jose Andres was a pretty good place to start, right? Since then, the blogging continued for 4 years, full of my “foodie” adventures in different cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Singapore and Manila.
Fast forward to 2015 and a lot has changed. I graduated with an International Business degree, moved to Manila, started my own cupcake business -Sweet Patti Cakes holla!-, and got involved with lots of fun work in front of the camera. Oh, and my “then-boyfriend” from above is now my husband. What hasn’t changed is my love for food, passion for desserts or even my enthusiasm for trying new restaurants with family and friends.
I’ve had an itch for some time to join the online community again; I wasn’t sure if I should continue Patti’s Palette or start something totally new from scratch… Well, you’re now reading Patti’s Palette -let’s call it version 2.0-, so I guess you could say I decided on something in between. This time, I want to share with you ALL of life’s beautiful and positive things that interest me. From checking-in to a boutique hotel to biting into the best chocolate chip cookie to wearing the cosiest cashmere sweater, I want to curate for you the best of my lifestyle as I live it. I hope you leave feeling inspired about life and happy in your heart!
