Digits Trading Summer 2016 New Tech Accessories

25.2.16


Summer is an exciting season for me because almost everyone's G in going on an adventure and vacations. Along with the destination, of course, is the hours of travel by plane or on the road (or both!). 

To fight boredom, we bring our gadgets during our travels. To keep these toys in tip-top shape, Digits Trading offers the latest and coolest tech accessories for you.

Edwin Watch Now in Manila


It started with Edwin Denim, the first in Japan to import used jeans. With passion and experience for denim, they created their own in-house brand in 1961 and called it Edwin Denim.

To expand this legacy, Edwin Watch is born.

Browhaus Makeup Line + Price Range


When you hear Browhaus, you'll think of the kilay salon that specializes in perfect eyebrows. 

This time though, the brand just released a collection of makeup that will help define your eyes more. Just like their salon, this range will surely become a hit, and an instant cult favorite.

Instax and Crafts with Jasmine Curtis and Craft Manila

24.2.16


I am not sure if this is my third already, but a crafty day with Instax is always a "must" for me who loves the arts. Aside from being a stress-reliever type of event, I actually enjoy watching my fellow bloggers and friends create!

For this year, FUJIFILM Philippines Inc. launches “Instax and Crafts” at SMX Aura, SM Aura Premier in Taguig. It is a fun afternoon of crafting with acclaimed TV-movie actress Jasmine Curtis Smith and Craft Manila who shared tips on how to make the most of your Instax memories.

Here's an interesting collaboration: A fabric conditioner and a fashion brand joined forces last Valentine's Day to launch SCENTS OF STYLE at the Glorietta Activity Center.

Binondo


I used to go to Quiapo weekly.


Armed with two to three empty bags, I easily filled these up with cheap finds and materials that I can use to create accessories that I can sell online. I miss this place ever since I moved back to our house in Alabang.



The Bellevue Manila Staycation with Ava


Better late than never!

Here's one of the best staycations I had from late last year with @artsyava at The Bellevue Manila. Although I'm actually living in the south already, it's nice to go somewhere new for me in a place that I call home.

Also, I take pride in touring friends around and introducing them to good ol' Alabang! Hehe!


OPPO F1: Selfie Expert Camera Phone

19.2.16


OPPO knows what I need right now: A camera fit for my lifestyle. I am struggling between just using a phone vs buying a mirrorless camera for my events for the past weeks, considering budget, quality, and "commuter friendly" (lightweight, not takaw pansin).

So say hello to OPPO's latest release for the year: the OPPO F1.



Facial Wash + Makeup Remover In One from Bioré!


Yey for multiple purpose products that makes life easier! There's the lip and cheek tint, shampoo and conditioner, and even foundation with SPF! 

Meanwhile, here's a genius product from a brand that I've been hearing a lot of good things from beauty bloggers Bioré Uru Uru 2-in-1 Instant Foaming Wash!

New from CBTL: Vanilla Almond Beverage


I love trying new things, and one of them is with my coffee. I am a big coffee drinker, so I get excited whenever my favorite coffee shop offers a new drink! 

One of my latest favorite is adding soy milk to my latte. For Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, their latest offering is the Vanilla Almond Latte and Ice Blended Beverage. I love vanilla!

Ruth's Harry Potter Themed Birthday with Clara Ole!

Yey for themed parties and guests who are all game! I saw all these and more last week during @ruthilicious' birthday, sponsored by Clara Ole (totyal!). Read on why this is one of the BEST birthday parties I've ever attended!



Ayala Malls: Art to HeART for Valentine's Day 2016

13.2.16


We celebrate most of our special occasions at an Ayala Mall... from birthdays, reunions, Christmas, and now even during Valentine's Day!

I realized during yesterday's launch what this campaign is simply telling me to do: To fill up my life with lots of love and art again!

Maine Mendoza For Avon Skin So Soft

Comfortable Dormitory / Bed Space Along EDSA Mandaluyong

9.2.16


I've been commuting for more than 10 years now, and owning a condominium unit had been playing in my mind for the longest time. 

I had been quite hesitant, though, because I don't think my earnings from my freelance jobs are enough for this cost of living. Aside from the unit rental, there's also the kuryente at tubig bills that I have to consider. I can live without my cable TV and with minimal furnishings (hehe), but as a social media girl, I also have to pay for my internet!

So here's where SPACE EDSA comes in. Redefining dormitory living, Space EDSA is designed to help as much Filipinos to have the privilege to enjoy taking one ride or walk to work. The idea is to allow each Spacer to live near where they want to be.

Bohol Takeover with #NiveaSunProtects Part 2

8.2.16


I actually just read this line on Facebook via Bo Sanchez's page, and thought it's worth sharing:

Live your life today in a way that when you're 83, 
you can look back and smile with gratitude and joy.

During the Nivea Sun Protects launch in Bohol, this can go in two ways. First is to live all out and just do what you want to do even when you're unsure / scared / you feel you're not good enough.



Bohol Takeover with #NiveaSunProtects Part 1

6.2.16


The gang left Manila early January 26 with lots of sunshine. I was even wearing my super-oversized sunnies, which I bought from FLY Shades just for this trip. We were headed to Bohol to experience the Nivea Sun line. Ang saya diba!

This event was something my whole blog barkada (Clingies) was looking forward to since late last year because sa wakas, nakumpleto din kami sa out-of-town! It was also my first time in Bohol.


What's New With TOMS



Summer is here! So even with all the minimalism going on, I can't help but wear this overly printed hippie dress when we visited Sonya's Garden for my birthday. To balance out this girly number, I paired it with my comfortable gray brogues from TOMS.

Dress - H&M | Shoes - TOMS

AVON Cherish: In Celebration Of All Women

5.2.16


AVON Philippines sent me a birthday bouquet yesterday (thank you!). These things made me appreciate my work more and more, knowing that even brand partners I have collaborated with remembered a personal occasion. These thoughtfulness I will cherish forever!


Busy Girls Deserve #LuxNights


I've always been multihyphenate in a way that I want to maximize my time and do what I can do now. 

In college, I was a student-writer-entrepreneur (I wrote for magazines, and also started with my accessories business). Few years ago I had Anagon accessories business (and bazaar stints) and this blog, plus I organize Bloggers United. Now I am also a school club moderator!

I really admire women who can do more with their days (allergic ata ako sa tamad, haha). But of course, with all the hard work, for me, busy girls very much deserve Lux Nights!

Humans Of Makati


I like Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York. It's one of my long-time most shared and followed Facebook page that I will never get tired of. I think it's a unique way of showcasing portrait photography - "with a heart" and soul. HONY has the perfect formula: Relatable stories, tidbits that inspire me, and thoughts that provoke and move. 

Adapting the concept to the local setting, I find Humans of Makati a genius. Bat di ko naisip to level. Haha! 

Modest Girl: Swimwear Ideas for the Conservative Girls Like Me (hehe)

1.2.16


Hello, fresh from Bohol!

It's my first beach trip for the year, and I am happy to have spent it with my complete blog barkada for Nivea's Sun Protects launch. 

Health Benefits + How to tell if the Organique Acai Premium Blend is Legit


As with anything, I am very cautious of imitations. Nothing beats the original when it comes to quality. What more when we're talking about health products?

Organique Acai Premium blend has been in the global market since 2009. And through the years, several products has imitated Organique Acai and how it looks in efforts to lure the unknowing customer to buying substandard acai berry products.
