Vertical Horizon Concert!

I am finally making my dream of watching all the concerts I want this year happen! Kahit Gen Ad lang, basta mapanuod sila ng LIVE, masaya nako! Something I wasn't able to enjoy back during my studyanteng bakal years, with my measly baon and all. So after the Katy Perry, The Hanson, and Cranberries... Another high school favorite came for a visit! Watched the Vertical Horizon in Araneta Coliseum last Saturday with Krissy, Pax and Mich, and Krissy's friends Jonas and Mitch. Yup marami-rami kami ngayon!
My Vertical Horizon story is that I only know 4 songs from this band, but all of them are dear to me. Who wouldn't love Everything You Want and You're A God? Almost forgot about Echo, but realized isa to sa mga songs in my computer that I loved to sing along with but hindi ko naassociate with the band. And of course, my most favorite Vertical song is Best I Ever Had. Aside from arousing downer feelings from playing this ang-senti-masyado song, it's also the first (and…

Online Shopping made more fun with TheMall.PH!

Attended the The Mall Meets the Bloggers event last April 27 in The Gallery, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel. 




While having good lunch, I learned more about TheMall.ph. This site is a virtual shopping mall that serves as an online storefront for budding local brands as well as retail establishments (like an online directory of different fashion brands you'll love). Run by the same creative team that produces Stylebible.ph, theMall.ph gives you a fashionable take on online shopping, with its stylish selection of clothes, accessories, beauty and novelty items for women, men and kids.




I think what I like about The Mall is that its easy-to-use interface, 24/7 accessibility and comprehensive brand directory equips users with informed shopping decisions, so that browsers can become buyers. TheMall.ph houses all stores under one roof, making it the ultimate online shopping destination for all shopaholics. Plus, who would not want to shop at the convenience of your homes, minus the crowd stress,…

Bench x BDO MasterCard!

I never ever remember my dreams, but this morning was an exemption. In my unconscious I got hold of my first credit card, and swiped away, only to realize I can't pay my monthly bills (nightmare pala yun!). I wonder if in real life I can control "the plastic", or, just like that girl in my dream, I can't handle this kind of thing. Lol.



Just around a week ago, I witnessed as two of the largest local brands today--retail giant BENCH and leading bank BDO--launched the newest...what else? A co-brand credit card! I was with Paul (The PR Guy) earlier that day, so he let me tag along the event which was held in Manila Pen's Salon de Ning.

Learned that the new card is another first for BENCH on their 25th anniversary in the business (ka-age ko lang pala sila, halos). The company that first sold tshirts has since evolved into a full lifestyle brand which spans from fashion, hair products and services (who doesn't love Bench Fix!), bath and fragrances, and a women'…

Addicted to Scents!

"Before, every time I go out, I would ask my mom if I look good, and she'll say no...you are ugly, have you sprayed on your perfume? And then I'll remember putting on my scent, and feel that I am a handsome guy already."


I love this anecdote from Sir Arnaud Marolleau, international fragrance expert and guest speaker of Prestige Brands Masterclass in a scentsational talk last April 25 at the Romulo Cafe, Jupiter St., Makati.



The beautiful Ms. Issa Litton hosting the affair:



 I picked up quite a lot of new points from this cool French guy. Sharing some of them to you!



Have you heard of Musk, Ambergris, and Civette in in your perfume?

They are actually from animals, some old-time components of perfume, which are actually:

Musk - Bull balls sweat
Ambergris - whale sperms
Civette - Cat piss



But fortunately for us:


...They do not use animal by-products in perfumes anymore. So instead of using real bull balls sweat, whale sperms, and cat piss, the experts make synthetic ve…

I'm tired but I'm happy :)

Feeling extra tired today. I hate complaining about feeling tired while some people really have busy office hours, but then awhile ago I can't pretend that I am okay as exhaustion took over me. I lacked sleep because I can't seem to get a shut-eye last night just because I have to wake up early today (sakit ko ata yun, yung tipong hindi ako makatulog pag kailangan kong maaga magising! :P). Add to all the stress is Manila's walang patalong heat! Parusa!!!
Anyway, dragged myself to finally exercise in the morning before heading to faraway Eastwood for the Stylebible.PH's The Mall event. Took this fashown event as a sign na makapag heels uli! Matagal tagal nadin!

Some kind of Superhuman

Donned an ensemble yesterday that made Angel reserve my dress kahit hindi ko pa siya binebenta (lol)

I was thinking more of the Philippine Flag (sun rays as my necklace, o diba?), but Paul and Angel thought I dressed up as Wonder Woman. Pwede na din--first day naman ng showing ng Avengers, lol!

Before anything, let me (awkwardly) greet The Fashionista Commuter blog a HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY! Super saya that back then I wouldn't even tell my friends about this blog, and now I gained MORE friends because of this online tambayan. Now, tignan niyo naman ang first entry ko (and outfit pics!) - Hehehe!





I miss my black hair haha! To more years, cheers? CHEERS!
