OOTD 10.16.14

Hello world! Been busy yesterday finishing my travel posts before the next adventure! Hindi ako OC sa things (lol), but na-OOC ako when things are left undone! (That's a good thing naman, diba?). Anyway, an OOTD break muna before I write my final entry from my Baler trip. I wore an all-H&M look that day coz adik ako lol and this was a day afterthe crazy VIP launch. I bought basic pieces that I can repeat again and again in the coming months, so ayun, expect na pauulit-ulitin ko itong mga to in different ways (para sulit din, hehe!). ;)

Anyway, so since I have no time na to create my usual weekly "Dear Diary" posts (huhu), singit ko na siya here. Last week had been busy for me to the point na after Baler trip--the next day salang kaagad for CraftMNL wire class ko. It was my first time din in the new head quarters in Chino Roces (at the back of New World lang!), so kinilig din ak…

Poler: Camp Vibes and Outdoor Adventures in Baler

In traveling, we often seek for a number of "comfort zones", lalo na when going to a place that is new to us. First, most of the time we want to be with our closest friends and family members. If not, dapat may fully charged phones to feel "connected" with people or Google (pag may kailangang isearch!;p). And of course, a comfortable place to stay.
But what if wala lahat nito, will you still say yes to a trip? Oh yes I did. ;p
Feeling adventurous, I went to a camping / "glamping" trip to Baler last week even after my friend Pax backed out coz she's sick. I was ready for an adventure, to see new things, and meet new friends! The meet up was early 5:30am in a still-empty High Street area near R.O.X., where the group rode this private bus and spent hours just sleeping and eating while on our way to far-north.

Azalea Residences Baguio Day 3

Day 3, fight!
For our last day with the very accommodating Azalea Residences Baguio, we decided to maximize our last few hours by checking out must-see places at the City of Pines. After the buffet breakfast, off we go via Azalea's van:

7 Trends Spotted in Suiteblanco, Sfera, and UNOde50 PhFW 2014

On your next OOTD, take note of the following stylish prints and combinations dominating the Suiteblanco, Sfera, and UNOde50 PhFW show last week.

Soundfreaq Sound Spot

During our Baler bonfire night, before sleeping in our tents, I saw that the organizer played music via a sleek black Soundfreaq speaker. Portable Bluetooth speakers are everywhere now, making sound trips even when out-of-town more convenient. I recently acquired the compact 5-inch Soundfreaq Sound Spot with the brown embossed wood design (it is also available in black):

What's inside the box - mostly cords for charging and to connect device on phone when not in bluetooth mode, and just the speaker:

On, play, pause, skip tracks, and volume buttons:
Connect any device with a standard headphone jack (cable included in box). You can also connect TWO Sound Spots (Daisy Chain) with the Line In cable from the package to create a louder and more powerful sound source (perfect for house parties or beach trips).
Meanwhile, other than charging the device, you can also charge your phone via Sound Spot by connecting your phone's cord in its USB port. It can charge up to 500mA.

Document More Memories with Canon IXUS 265 HS

I've been using a red Canon 1100D DSLR for years already to document my blog events and outfit posts with a good quality camera. But during trips, like the time when I went to the States last Christmas, I don't want to bring a bulky and expensive gadget so I just use my camera phone. The problem is that it has limited memory, so I have to delete pictures from time to time, plus I can't even take lots of videos!

That's why, with perfect timing, I am so happy to receive this Canon IXUS 265 HS digital camera a few days before my Zambales beach trip. It is compact and lightweight--making it easy to bring during my travels. 
The Canon IXUS 265 HS has so much features that you can maximize. It uses the regular SD memory card, has its own rechargeable battery (lasted during my overnight stay without charging), and has an ultra wide screen for scenic and group shots:

Aside from its physical plus points, here are other reasons why the Canon IXUS 265 HS is the perfect small, point-…

LeBunny Bleu Fall Collection

Shoes. Shoes. Shoes. You'll have a shelf full of flats or boots or sandals, and you will still feel the need to buy a pair when you chance upon something "cute". Le Bunny Bleu, the store that is so Instagrammable I have to stop myself from posting too much or I might look like the owner na (haha), just released the cutest flats that will make me hibernate my heels for a looong looong time.

Brogues in basic black and tan, will make you feel you'll need both (haha):
Comfy and "will go with anything" slip-ons in textured black, chevron, and snakeskin print:
Buckled boots, zippered boots, lace-up boots:
Daintier and slimmer slip-ons in plain black, rainbow camo, and bronze-brown:
Prettiest heeled suede oxfords:
Tasseled babies!
Did you know that the brogues are different from oxfords, with the first having the wing-tipped detail while the latter is just plain na parang ganto? ;)
Ongoing promo!
 What I loved the most: the comfy textured black slip-ons that I fee…
