HSBC Gold Visa Cash Back Credit Card

HSBC invited us for a lavish intimate lunch at the very exclusive Manila House last week to talk about the HSBC Gold Visa Cash Back Credit Card and how a shopaholic and frequent traveler like me can make the most out of it. There’s nothing better than getting rewarded for your own purchases! “Every year we think of a product that would address the evolving needs of our consumers,” says Kris Werner, HSBC Philippines Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management. “It’s no surprise they love to dine, shop and travel. At HSBC, we found a way that would cater toRead more

Japan’s Anello Bags – Now in Manila!

Everyone knows how much I love the land of the rising sun. In fact, I went back twice to Tokyo in a span of three months earlier this year just for the sights and wonderful food it has to offer. The best thing I love about Japan would be its convenient railway so it’s easy for lone travelers like me to get around. Thing is, it’s not as cheap as other Asian countries so I try to make the most out of every ride by buying all the things I want at every stop. That means lugging around big shoppingRead more

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
