I’m Kate Alvarez, a writer, editor, and commercial model from the Philippines. I love to travel, watch plays, do Yoga, and collect kitschy things. I have four rescue dogs, four adopted Shih Tzus, and eight rescue cats. My parents run a funeral parlor and my sister is a pastry chef. I’m an advocate of mental health awareness and animal rights.
I launched this travel and lifestyle blog in 2011. On October 5, 2012, I lost the love of my life to depression. I, too, am battling clinical depression. With the support of a few open-minded loved ones and friends, I’ve survived.
I’m grateful for being able to juggle writing, performing, traveling, and all the other things I love. I’m thankful for being able to share my stories with you.
I miss him every day.
Love, peace, and light,
