Sorry I have been filling up this blog with mostly shopping finds!  But they're all good stuff, anyway so I hope it makes everybody happy too, hehe! Let me just share with you these handmade gift tags I ordered from Tagged with Love (formerly 43lucy.com).  It took a while for the gift tags to arrive from the U.S. (something must be done with our local postal service, argh!) ...

LBC Shipping Cart: A Review


(Text by our resident guest writer - AJ De Leon. Pictures by yours truly.) I really wanted that bowling ball, for the fact that it looks so cool and different. That it’s unavailable to purchase from bowling pro shops here in our country added to its desirability factor.  Plus, we were thinking that shipping a heavy item like this ball is one good way to measure how LBC would ...

A Bag Give Away!


Yes, I'm having a bag give away - as in I'm giving away a bag of mine  =) But first, a little story about the bag (and please don't judge me, awright?). I brought my favorite oversized Balenciaga motorcycle bag at ColorWash Greenhills last year for cleaning, and also to seek expert help in removing the smell that I think came from the molds I tried to remove many times ...

Custom Painted Portrait Illustration from Lux & Trip


I'm done putting the final touch to my blog's new look, and that's my portrait illustration (for the side bar), done by Lux & Trip: Transacting with the shop owner, Ms. Kristen Rosas, was a breeze and everything was finished in less than 3 days! It helped too that my request was simple: the banner (where my name is to be written) should be in brown (same shade as ... READ MORE

The Yellow Energy that is Citrine


We were at Greenhills last weekend, and I couldn't take my eyes off these high-quality, authentic citrine bracelets being sold at my favorite feng shui shop, Bensani Charms: I took photos of the bracelets using my phone (Lenovo K900) and I think I wasn't able to adjust the settings 'cos the citrine beads ended up in deep shade of golden yellow - almost like amber.  In ...
