Monday, August 05, 2013

NOTE: Giveaway Closed! :) Congrats to:
Kimberly Neri!

Haha! Soooo last week was sobrang hectic-much that I missed a lot of things, and now catch-up catch-up na on backlogs PMT (pag may time). 

Anyway, one of the things na hindi ko nagawa (huhu sorry) was greeting my reader Martha Bernardo on her birthday! Better late than never though, kaya Happy happy happy birthday sayo Martha!!! I hope to meet you soon, and regards to your friend Zandy who even emailed me to greet you! Blessed ka with a sweet friend! ;)

Meanwhile, here's a rundown of other going-ons / new products / etcetera.. around the Metro:

My new favorite scent - White Musk from The Body Shop, is part of the brand's repriced lineup! Check out the other products with new price tags here, all from our favorite beauty store! Anjan din si Lip & Cheek Stain, btw! :D

This September, Dulaang UP will stage John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi.
Dark and visceral, The Duchess of Malfi has mesmerized and shocked audiences since it was first staged 400 years ago in 1613! Interesting! For sponsorship and ticket inquiries, please contact the Dulaang UP Office at 926-1349, 981-8500 local 2449 or 433-7840 and look for Ms. Camille Guevarra or Ms. Samanta Clarin.

Take advantage na nito: SM Accessories will be on HUGE sale for the whole month of August! Basagang wallet, gow!

Check out iWhite Korea's cute new (matte!) packaging for the Aqua Moisturizing Cream! Same effective product padin, but with a more hip feel! Follow their FB page, I LOVE that their look is always so consistent and CUTE! 

Matagal-tagal nadin since Candymag's last local cover girl (s)! :) Kudos to my foreverfevorit teen magazine for featuring bffs Laureen Uy and Jasmine Curtis on your August cover!

Inside the mag--Anagon accessories was featured as worn by cover girls Jasmine Curtis and Laureen Uy! Woot!

Also spotted this Anagon cherry blossoms wreath on Vern Enciso! :)

Fun and functional Parachute Bags!
Attended the Parachute Bags bloggers din-din last week, and discovered this brand's cutesy products--including the ones above ("Empanada" bag, small purse (for your important stuff like USB or rosary), pencil case, and foamed digicam bag.

From Parachute Bags's new collection of convertible bags--I got this cute pixel-camo print "Empanada Bag"...

So small it can fit inside my oversized bags, but pag inun-zip na sha....

It converts into a backpack, na waterproof na, roomy pa, AND perfect pa for my yoga classes! :)

Here are just some of Parachute Convertible Bags' other interesting products:

From messenger bag to backpack:

Wag na mamili if small sling bag or travel tote--Kung pwede naman both!?

Cute small belt bag that turns into a big backpack:

Backpack + ladies tote bag in one! Parang magiiic! Hehe.
