Penguin: The Original Lives On

Known for their timeless appeal and classic designs, Original Penguin came back in fashion in the 2000s, when young trendsetters demanded for the cult classics. In 2003, this led to the birth of Original Penguin by Munsingwear, and an alliance with an international fashion house. The brand is now bigger than ever, turning into a lifestyle brand that includes suits, watches, bags, belts, hats, shoes, and women’s and kids’ collections as well. This time around, Original Penguin celebrates the brand’s heritage by highlighting the different styles Original Penguin has for both the old and the young. Certainly, this is aRead more

Roy & Biv: An Obsessive Compulsive Wasteland

I’m easily compelled to enter stores with pretty or colorful displays. Roy & Biv is an extra-ordinary one because this obsessive compulsive wasteland displays their products based on color. That’s right, you won’t find all the mugs in one section or all the notebooks stacked on one rack – they’re everywhere! There’s no specific explanation as to what this shop can offer because I’ve spotted the oddest combination of products inside. They’re got never before seen items, clothing, school supplies, pillows, accessories, display items, furniture and even pet beds! * * * This place is an explosion of color withRead more

HUSH PUPPIES: The Body Shoe | Auto Options

Let me share a fun fact about myself that I’ve never disclosed on my blog before. I may be little miss makeup girl but I’ve been exposed to the automotive industry at a very young age. So it’s quite ironic that I decided to go on a very different path – the opposite one, actually. I tried my hand at makeup, styling and now I’m currently working with PR and marketing but none of the brands I’ve worked with are related to cars. Until last week, I got the chance to work on the grand opening of Auto Options, yourRead more

CESA SKIN

I was first acquainted with this homegrown after-beach care brand called CESA Skin last year. I was hesitant to use it at first because my skin easily reacts to exfoliation even if it is mild. But after one use, I found myself using the Cesa Skin after-sun scrub and cooling soap even if I didn’t come from swimming or sun exposure because our weather is crazy-HOT! You probably find this brand familiar because of my CESA swimsuit OOTD post last year. The packaging is neat and chic so it’s something that I’m easily attracted to buy. The CESA Skin Body Scrub (P350.00)Read more
