LOTD: Emerald | Tinge: Stingray Leather Accessories

In case you haven’t heard, the color of the year this 2013 is Emerald Green, a color I rarely wear. So when I saw this peplum top from MANGO, I knew I had to get it. I wore this to the NIVEA EXPRESS RAID a few weeks ago because I had to wear something loose and comfortable since I knew that we’d be running around Forever 21 during the challenge. My arm candies! Remember my new year’s resolution? I’m so glad I was able to cross one of them out of my list because I was able to grow myRead more

KYO: Authentic Japanese Bakery

Val and I were invited to check out KYO, the newly opened authentic Japanese bakery at the Fort. The place is owned and operated by the Kimuras, a Japanese diplomat family who has been living in Manila for many years now. They were very hospitable and gave us a taste of their best food and pastries. First, we had Tonkatsu Rolls and Japanese Burger. Good thing everything was bite-sized because there were so many things to try out. The Japanese burger was okay but I had more of the Tonkatsu Rolls because it was wrapped in Nori (seaweed), something IRead more

Closeup: White Now Why Later | SOS Beauty Kit

Last December, my beauty blogger friends and I had a very intimate lunch with the Closeup team at Mr. Jones. Each one of us received an SOS Beauty Kit (distributed by a super hot man) that contained the following: I was overjoyed because I regretted not buying the NARS Orgasm blush at Guam. Thanks, Closeup! Prior to getting this kit, I’ve already read that red lipstick makes your teeth look whiter but I don’t know why I feel like mine looks yellow whenever I’m wearing that shade. Maybe it’s just me! :)) During our little get-together, they pre-ordered really colorfulRead more

Havaianas 2013 Collection

  I was invited to partake in a short tour and a sneak peek into Havaianas’ 2013 collection at their office last December. Two thumbs up to their visual artist for creating such cute displays for us. I still regret not taking a photo by this flip-flop tree! Now, here are some of my favorites from their 2013 collection. Some designs are already available in Havaianas shops but some might be released around March-April- right on time for summer! My first pair of “classy” flip-flops were from Havaianas back in 2007. They’re very sturdy and comfortable. As a matter ofRead more
