My Favorite Steak Place: MAMOU: A Home Kitchen

My parents always teased me about being thrift and not spending a dime on them so finally, after one million years, I decided to treat them to a lavish lunch. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@DearMarjSia), you’ll know that I frequentMamou (Serendra) or Mamou Too! (Rockwell) because my family looooves steak. We prefer eating it at the comfort of our own home but at Mamou, there is little difference because of the cozy ambience and of course, they make way better steaks than we do. To start off, we had Tuyo Salad with Red Rice (P155.00) instead of ordering the typical salads on theRead more

Perfection by Cream Silk: Become a Perfect 10!

Cream Silk set up an intimate event for bloggers a week after our Holy Week vacation. It was perfect timing because I needed a break from all the shopping at Hong Kong and I was going to Tagaytay that day. It was really funny because I thought that we would only use The Spa as our venue but they treated us to a full body massage so we had to be nakey around each other for the first time. *awkward* :)) After my Swedish Massage, I had to get rid of the oil on my hair and body or else I’ll be sticky for ourRead more

Royal Effem Makeup: Into the Deep Blue Sea (LOTD)

How’s your summer so far? It’s been crazy hot here in the Philippines lately so I thought of doing a makeup look that can make our hot summer days a bit cooler. It’s also dedicated to everyone headed to the beach this long weekend. (humph. *bitter*) :)) Let me introduce to you a recent discovery of mine~ Royal Effem: an Italian Makeup brand created by Laboratori Royal. I’m sure most of you haven’t heard of it yet but it is already available at some high-end salons in Manila. You can check out their Facebook Page for more products. The makeup used for my Into the DeepRead more

An O, WOW! Moment with Elmo Magalona & Oishi

I was invited to the press launch and unveiling of Oishi’s latest O, WOW! Campaign endorser. I had no clue whatsoever who it would be so I moved all my morning plans so that I could be one of the first to find out. *eager beaver mode* XD When I got there, a giant O, Wow! bag was handed to me and they said “Good luck if you can fit everything there!”. I imagined the place would look like a Santa Clause convention after the event. I spent the afternoon guessing who the latest endorser of Oishi would be with this fun group: (L-R) Richard, Michelle, Franco, Rowena. I remember one of themRead more

Parisian Bloggers Pictorial Party | Catwalk Cosmetics Summer 2012 Makeup Workshop

I was invited by Parisian Bags and Shoes to participate in their Bloggers Pictorial Party at Elite Studios in Makati. We were asked to choose two pairs from their summer collection and model one of them for the campaign. Parisian Bags & Shoes has been in SM for as long as I can remember. My mom told me that she also wears Parisian shoes during her teens and she’s quite impressed by how their style has evolved. A lot of their designs are inspired by luxury brands. I immediately thought of YSL Tributeswhen I saw these bright yellow and orange stilettos. Can’t wait toRead more
