Ayala Mall's Circuit Lane Makati

Image
Went to Ayala Malls' newest baby, Circuit Lane in Makati, last Friday to check out the shops and food places during their media launch. You'd love it here, I'd say this 10,000 sq. meter destination is the perfect balance of outdoors and the fast-paced. Chill and cray!


KEDS Ladies First Campaign + Fall/Holiday 2015

Image
Taylor Swift is all about girl-power and ladies supporting ladies. No wonder Keds followed through with an advocacy by launching the campaign Ladies First Since 1916, a global brand campaign empowering women.
Went to the event last November 26  to find out more about it:

Havaianas Filipinas 2015

Image
Most probably my favorite Havaianas collab, the brand teamed up with three young Filipino artists to bring you fresh flip-flops designs: Lakbay, Lasap, and Laro.
Went to the launch last November 25 in Whitespace Manila with my friends. The venue was transformed into an artsy, Instagram-worthy space!

Image
Here's something interesting!
Digits Trading recently unveiled their "Best of 2015", featuring a list of the coolest and most popular tech accessories of the year.
Attended the event at Hole In The Wall, Century Mall with these bloggers:

Sarah Geronimo Launches Mobile Game App with Xeleb

Image
I'm a Popster forever, and I'm not gonna lie! Haha! I've been a long-time Sarah G. fan not only for her birits, hataw performances, and good reputation, but even for her dramatic movies! Naenjoy ko lahat nyan sa big screen!
Meanwhile, Sarah Geronimo now has a new way of connecting with her fans—“Sarah G Popsters,” her first mobile game!

Skechers GO FLEX WALK

Image
Can't deny it, I really miss traveling. The past days had been really hectic, and all I can think about is after all these I can go out-of-town again and celebrate! 
With traveling, though, comes aching body and really tired feet from walking. I am glad to get to know the new Skechers GoFlex Walk... A shoe designed for people on-the-go!

Baler Break

Image
Baler comes from the word bali--meaning "a place to come back to".

2x More Smoothness And Shine with Cream Silk

Image
My hair used to be straight black and healthy. I’ll have insecurities with my body or my skin, but never my hair. It was low maintenance, but still looks great whenever I go to school.

Trip Ni Belle by Belle Daza

Image
What do you do when you're either stuck in traffic, waiting for someone, or at the airport? 
I often just surf the internet, unconsciously absorbing other people's lives even when I don't need to! Anyway, with that I decided to download apps that will steer me away from Social Networking Sites from time to time. I love my Pinterest because of the inspiring DIYs, OOTDs, and vegetarian recipes. I also enjoy my Buqo app for my cheaper and portable monthly magazine subscriptions.
Now I discovered a new mobile game that will entertain me during those down times: Trip ni Belle by Belle Daza!

WIN: Dove Deo Beach Getaway!

Image
Did you know that 8 out of 10 women consistently engage in underarm hair removal to prepare for the season? They may not know that plucking, shaving and waxing actually damage their underarm skin, leading to irritation and bumpiness! Pag dating ng summer, it's all "damage control"! :p
More and more, women need a deodorant that delivers skin caring benefits and helps them get beautiful underarms. To learn more, I went to the Dove Deo event yesterday in Toby's Estate, Whitespace.

Parisian Shoes and Bags Holiday 2015

Image
I've been a Parisian fan for a long long time, and the brand is really one of my favorites since I started blogging. I am so happy every time they release a new collection... Everything looks great! 

The Body Shop Holiday 2015

Image
I've said this before and I'll say it again... People (though not all) get lonely during Christmas season because they feel that they lack something. I think that has been my case, feeling "alone and lonely", only to snap back and realize that this special day isn't all about me! I remind myself that it's about making people I love happy. :)
The Body Shop highlights my Christmas feels with their holiday campaign event for the bloggers last Thursday at the SM Megamall.

Jessy Mendiola for Avon Sheer Passion

Image
I LOVE Jessy Mendiola! She's actually one of the few celebs that I am not ashamed to profess my love (love you Jessy!), hehe. She is candid, transparent, and real... When she's hurt or bullied online or brokenhearted, everyone knows and I think it's doubly hard for her as a public figure. But I admire how she dealt with these things. Plus, Jessy is also really talented and ang ganda nya!
I think that's why Avon chose her to be the endorser for their new fragrance line Sheer Passion:

Coffee, Tea, or Chelsea?

Image
New-comer Chelsea clothing brand wowed fashion bloggers during their event last Tuesday at the Fairmont Hotel, Makati. London-based, the brand brings along with it the ideals of high street London fashion with reasonable price range!

California Pizza Kitchen's New Menu

Image
I love love California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) because they have the trio perfected: great food + great service + great ambiance combination. Aside from these, I appreciate their wide menu, catering even vegetarians like me! It's one of those few restaurants where I am at ease, and have a lot of good options to choose from!
Last Tuesday, I went to their new menu launch at Shangri-La Mall East Wing. I was curious on what else they can add to their perfect lineup!

#Shopee1111Day

Image
Blogging this before leaving the house because today (and the coming days!) are very very exciting. I am on my toes now as I juggle school, the blog (and events), Bloggers United, and my new baby with @sarahtirona - Beach Born Sea Salt Hair Spray!
Speaking of BU, we've recently partnered with the new mobile app for selling and buying items from your favorite Instagram sellers: SHOPEE!

Flossy: I Live On My Own Terms!

Image
If for anything, regardless of slower metabolism (hehe), I will never want to "go back in time" because of what "getting older" entailed me. With adulthood, I became more unforgiving. I used to be too shy or too caught up with what people think of me. But now, more confident, I know my worth and why I do things: Not to please others, but to be happy!
And this is exactly what Ibiza-born plimsoll footwear brand Flossy promotes to the youth:

New Menu from Hotel Rembrandt-QC, Le Monet Hotel-Baguio, and Hotel Luna-Vigan

Image
Hotel Rembrandt is inspired by, if it's not yet obvious, Dutch master artist Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. He was known not for technical brilliance, but for his new kind of insight, making what seem ordinary more interesting!
Like its namesake, Hotel Rembrandt offers satisfying luxury and convenience in the middle of the busy and residential area of Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Just like all of ArtStream Hospitality Management Group, Inc. (AHMGI) hotels and resorts, Hotel Rembrandt gives you access to all the happening places and events in the area, and great facilities and food in the hotel!
Last night, I attended the new menu launch of Hotel Rembrandt-QC, Le Monet Hotel-Baguio, and Hotel Luna-Vigan. It was held at the ballroom:

Ayala Malls Christmas 2015

Image
I was talking with my sisters earlier about the Ayala Malls Christmas event, while munching on a box of Custaroons. We realized that we're lucky we're not super "emo" during this love-hate season. We thought that maybe it's because we're used to having each other during this time of the year? No matter what, we have family. 
Anyway, I am glad that the Ayala Malls is here to remind us of beloved family traditions and other important things that make Christmas magical and meaningful - more than the lights, fancy decors, and rush shopping.

Cream Silk Leave-On Cream For Your #Beauty911 #AnytimeAnywhere

Image
There are several moments when my hair just won’t cooperate, and here are the top 3 situations:
1) As a blogger, I have to go to several events in a week day. There are even hectic days when I have to cover 3-5 brand launch! Because I am always on-the-go, and I can't always go to asalon, I often end up with dull and frizzy hair. :p

October Favorites

Image
Life is fast and short, before we knew it, it's already November! I still have a bit of anxiety every time I remember my half-hearted promise to spend the Holidays with my family in Maryland every year... But oh well, financial and time constraints is telling me that there's always a next time. 
Anyway, here are my October favorites! Plans may not be fulfilled on my own time, but life has it's own way of making me appreciate what's here and now. :)
1) Lifehouse Concert was a dream come true! 
Was supposed to watch Gen Ad, but received last minute Patron tickets! Special thanks to @nicherautomatic and SpinnrPH! Read more on this HERE.

Wingstop Updates!

Image
Wingstop Opens in Alabang Town Center
Not your average wings restaurant, Wingstop prides itself in being “a flavor company”that boasts of  ten unique flavors, each able to hold its own within a selection of sauces that include sweet, savory, and spicy variations. 
Good news, it's finally open in the south at the Alabang Town Center!

Disney and Disneyland Memories

Image
When I first went to Disneyland, it was waaay past my childhood already. The experience was super memorable, nonetheless. I was with my long-time friends from high school, people that most probably I'll go with to the theme park if we had the chance and money when we were still kids. But anyway, one is never too old for Disney and Disneyland!
