I constantly visited and still visit her website just to read her blogs. When the super Typhoon Yolanda hit the country in 2013, she announced on her Facebook page that she’d auction her clothes and #missjones outfits on eBay. ph to be donated to relief efforts. I was screaming because her pieces were all pretty. I wanted them all.”

“My heart leaped when I learned that I had won the Forever21 red leatherette skirt for P550. For sure those lucky ladies who got the rest of the items felt the same. She was so sweet and such an accommodating seller. It thrilled me, even more, when she sent the item because it came with a handwritten letter. Her penmanship is also as beautiful as her heart. She wrote that she wore the skirt once to Valentine’s Day dinner with actor Jericho Rosales, who’s now her husband. Kinilig ako!”
